Cover Reveal – Scoring Chance by Teagan Hunter

Teagan Hunter has revealed the cover for Scoring Chance!

Releasing: October 20, 2022

 

Scoring on the ice? Piece of cake.
Scoring off it? Well, there’s a reason I’m still a virgin.

I’m not entirely clueless with women, though I do tend to put my foot in my mouth around them far too often.

Like I did with Scout, the donut maker I stupidly introduced myself to despite visiting her truck for years.

Maybe my teammates have a reason to call me the dumb one, but I’m determined to prove them all wrong–Scout included.

I want to be her friend. Want her to see the real me.

What I’m not expecting is to like her so much when we start spending time together…or want to kiss her so badly.

I’m the jock, and she’s the bookworm.
On paper, we make no sense together.

But maybe I have a scoring chance with her after all.

Review – Off Sides by Ella Kade

Book Cover

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

Publication Date: September 26, 2022

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

Author: Ella Kade

Review Rating: 4.5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

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

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

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

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

Synopsis:

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

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

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

He was a liar.


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

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

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

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

Review – Irresistible Trouble by Pippa Grant

Irresistible Trouble; Copper Valley Fireballs #4
(#4 within an interconnected series)

Publication Date: September 29, 2022

Genre/Tropes: Romantic Comedy/Sports/Second Chance/Rock and Roll Romance

Author: Pippa Grant

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:
#TeamWoorperly and do you know what makes that ship name even cuter? Cooper Rock himself is the one who coined it. All the heart emoji’s…drop dead in all the cuteness…Cooper Rock is one ooooey, gooey man ball of falling in love.

YES!! Cooper Rock is finally here!! He’s been evading us with only cameos and fun loving easter eggs, but it’s finally time and his story is perfectly perfect for the rock god of baseball.

Cooper Rock is famous, or is it infamous when your team has been the loseiest team in baseball history? Regardless of how bad the Copper Valley Fireballs have been, Cooper Rock hasn’t given up on them. He’s probably one of the happiest-go-lucky guys you will ever run across and he always looks on the bright side. But, when he runs across Waverly Sweet, the only one who ever made him think long term…well, let’s just say that Cooper’s happy-go-lucky gets a little twisted in the jockstrap.

Waverly Sweet is a huge, international pop star, which unfortunately means her face is super recognizable and keeping up that image is a full time job. When she runs back into Cooper Rock, a man she’s never forgotten and with the incredible stress she’s under…Cooper Rock is the one man who could give her a HUGE stress reliever…except, the ramifications of Waverly Sweet sleeping with a notorious serial dater like Cooper…she’s not sure her image could withstand it, but she’s also not sure her emotions can stand walking away either.

Cooper and Waverly are adorably sweet falling for one another as they work around their insanely crazy schedules. This story also includes members of Coopers baseball team that are fun and crazy and Waverly’s team that are just a little crazy. The absolute best part is Coop’s family which is a whole side of crazy family love, that I would totally love to be a part of, especially with the giant heart of unconditional love that they all have for one another. Lastly, the text convo’s, no matter if it’s with family, or #TeamWoorperly, or just between friends, they were all insanely hilarious.

Basically this book is fun no matter how you slice it, especially while I got to enjoy two people who desperately deserve to fall in love with one another.

Synopsis:

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

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

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

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

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

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

No matter what else I have to sacrifice for love.

Including baseball.

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

Genre: Sports Romance
Release Date: September 15, 2022
BLURB
#99 Dash Taylor. Rookie defensive end for the Boston Tomcats. 285 pounds of fast-twitch muscle. Nickname: Big D.
I’ve been sacking quarterbacks since junior high and causing trouble since I was born.
My college coach thinks I have a bad attitude, so he makes me take ballet lessons as punishment. If I don’t turn things around on the field next season, he’ll bench me. I have no idea what ballet has to do with football, but it turns out the real punishment is that the beautiful dance teacher refuses to get involved with me.
Two years later, we cross paths again, and it’s not the other team’s offensive line who brings me to my knees—it’s a hundred-pound ballerina.
She doesn’t think I’m boyfriend material, and I used to think that too.
I’ve been a beast on the field and in the bedroom, but now I’m going to prove that I can be a man for her…and for our surprise baby.
I thought I was all about the smash and dash.
But getting Charlie Bardot pregnant changed everything.

KAYLEY LORING
Before writing steamy romantic comedy novels, Kayley Loring got a BFA in creative writing from a Canadian university and had a fifteen-year career as a screenwriter in Los Angeles (under a different name). She mostly wrote PG-13 family comedies that studios would pay her lots of money for and then never make into movies. In 2017 she decided to move to the Pacific Northwest and write about all the fun stuff that she wasn’t allowed to write about in those PG-13 scripts. Now she’s breathing cleaner air and writing dirtier words. It’s an adjustment she’s happily getting used to.
CONNOR CRAIS
Connor Crais is a classically trained actor living in the Midwest with his wife, three kids, and rescue greyhound. He has been both a stage and television actor, and before plunging into the romance genre, he had been narrating commercials, audiobooks, and explainers for well over a decade from his home studio. From alphas to bosses to cocky sports stars (a particular favorite), he loves sparring with beautiful, sassy heroines (and their talented narrators) but also loves winning them over and reaching that happily ever after. He is excited to now create those stories as an author.

Review – Hating the Player by Rebecca Jenshak

Hating the Player; Campus Wallflower #2
(#2 within a series)

Publication Date: September 20, 2022

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

Author: Rebecca Jenshak

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:
Sweet, slow burning, second chance romance set in Jenshak’s Valley U world.

Stepping back into Valley U felt familiar and comfortable, like putting on my favorite sweatshirt. Reading Gavin and Violet’s story was very much reading a comfort story, one without a lot of conflict, but instead focused on rebuilding their relationship, first through friendship and then finally falling back in love.

What we know going into this book is that Gavin Leonard is the worst. What we don’t have is all the facts into why Violet thinks this way. This is the building storyline on why Gavin has to rebuild his reputation with Violet and why exactly he even wants to give it another try.

Instead of painting Gavin in a horrible light, this story is actually really sweet. I love that Rebecca focuses on the present and how much Gavin is into Violet, along with how much Violet is into Gavin as well, but she’s just fighting it with every ounce of willpower she has…for good reason.

This is a super slow burn romance, but it doesn’t lack chemistry or time spent together. Violet doesn’t easily forgive so their relationship changes throughout the book, but it’s fun and sweet and just so lovely. AND….the epilogue…oh, my heart….pure sweetness!!!

Synopsis:
Gavin Leonard is the worst.
He lives in the best party house off campus at Valley U, overrun by jocks galore.
I live next door, watching Jane Austen adaptations with my sketchbook in hand.
He stays on his side of the fence.
I stay on mine.
Now we’re accidentally on a camping trip together, but there’s only one tent left.

Gavin Leonard is the worst.
And he’s the last guy who broke my heart.

He’s the best goalie in the league – Scotia Storm’s golden boy.

Blurb:

I never imagined that one night could end the friendship Beau Bishop and I’d had since birth and sever all ties between our families. Especially when less than an hour prior to that tragic accident at the racetrack that night, he had confessed his love to me under the bleachers. A bond I’d thought could never be broken was smashed to smithereens in an instant.

He left Alabama, hightailing it to Florida without so much as a good-bye.

Two years later, we’ve crossed paths again. Only he’s no longer known as Beau Bishop. No, now, the boy that I’ve been in love with my entire life is called Bama. And Bama is a cocky, closed-off jerk.

As much as he tries to push me away, he should know how persistent I am when it comes to something I want. Losing is never an option. Just ask all of the guys I’ve raced to become number one.

Getting everything I’ve ever wanted is finally so close I can almost reach out and grab it. But you know that saying—waiting for the other shoe to drop? Yeah … well, those words were always in the back of my mind. Knowing it seemed too good to be true to finally have Beau Bishop in the palm of my hand.

And I was right. Because once again, I was alone.

Sometimes, fear makes you do stupid things when it comes to the ones you love. We were a walking example of that.

This is book two in the Florida East University series.

New Release – Bitter Sweet Heart by Helena Hunting

“The heart, the raw authenticity, the original lens, this has become my favorite series of the year and I’m begging for more!” ~ Catherine Cowles, USA Today bestselling author

Bitter Sweet Heart, a steamy, reverse age gap, hockey romance from New York Times bestselling author Helena Hunting writing as H. Hunting, is now available!

From the outside looking in, I live a charmed life: hockey legend for a father, my own promising future in the league, a great family, awesome friends. It’s not untrue, but it’s not quite that simple either.

My dad’s advice has always been to make hockey my number-one priority—at least until I make it to the pros. So, going into my senior year of college, I have a plan. I’ll put in the effort required to pass my classes, play hockey like my life depends on it, and avoid relationships. All I have to do is stay focused on the end game, and I’ll walk away with a degree and into a career in the NHL.

It should be easy.

But when a woman literally floats into my dock, just before summer ends and my senior year begins, I can’t resist one last hookup. What harm could a one-night stand do? It’s not like we even exchanged numbers.

Everything is fine until I run into her on campus.

It’s a big school. I should be able to avoid her.

Except she happens to be in my class.

And she’s not a student.

She’s my professor.

Review – Stealing Bama by Hannah Gray

Stealing Bama; Florida East University #2
(#2 within a series)

Publication Date: September 1, 2022

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

Author: Hannah Gray

Review Rating: 4.5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:
At the heart of this new adult romance, is a story about forgiveness. Everyone makes mistakes, minor ones all the way up to major ones that you can’t take back and alter the course of your life, but everyone has the power to forgive and it’s up to you whether you decide to live with anger, grief, and resentment or forgive not only yourself, but those around you.

Beau “Bama” Bishop and Mila Hardy grew up together. Their father’s were best friends, along with their mothers, they were next door neighbors and business partners. Basically it was inescapable when one wanted to go somewhere without the other, that is until the day that Beau’s father was killed in a car accident. An accident that Mila’s dad survived. Needless to say all of their lives changed and Beau blamed the Hardy family and broke all ties. Soon after they moved not only away as neighbors, but out of state. Mila’s first crush made a statement loud and clear, but she is a girl who doesn’t take rejection quietly. Beau has been attending Florida East University and that’s where Mila has her sights set for college. Bama Bishop better watch out, Mila is racing in hot on his tail.

I waffled back and forth on these two while reading. There was a lot I liked about them, but there was also a lot I didn’t. While I understood the grief and resentment that Beau held onto and seeing Mila only brought on the memories of the night his father was killed, I wasn’t always thrilled about how Mila went about gaining his attention. This is a girl who is fearless on the racetrack and some of her antics just seemed a bit childish. However, when these two moved past the juvenile behavior, their deeper moments truly resonated and flushed out who they were as a character.

Stealing Bama does cross timelines with other books by Hannah, but this book can be read as a complete standalone.

Synopsis:

He left Alabama, hightailing it to Florida without so much as a good-bye.

Two years later, we’ve crossed paths again. Only he’s no longer known as Beau Bishop. No, now, the boy that I’ve been in love with my entire life is called Bama. And Bama is a cocky, closed-off jerk.

As much as he tries to push me away, he should know how persistent I am when it comes to something I want. Losing is never an option. Just ask all of the guys I’ve raced to become number one.

Getting everything I’ve ever wanted is finally so close I can almost reach out and grab it. But you know that saying—waiting for the other shoe to drop? Yeah … well, those words were always in the back of my mind. Knowing it seemed too good to be true to finally have Beau Bishop in the palm of my hand.

And I was right. Because once again, I was alone.

Sometimes, fear makes you do stupid things when it comes to the ones you love. We were a walking example of that.

This is book two in the Florida East University series.

Cover Reveal - 2022, New Releases

Cover Reveal – Off Sides by Ella Kade

OFF SIDES by Ella Kade

RELEASES: September 26th

Cover Designer: QAMBER DESIGNS

Photographer: XRAM RAGDE

Model: ANTONIO SILVA

I never thought I’d have to start over.

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

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

He was a liar.

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

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

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

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

#99 Dash Taylor. Rookie defensive end for the Boston Tomcats. 285 pounds of fast-twitch muscle. Nickname: Big D.
I’ve been sacking quarterbacks since junior high and causing trouble since I was born.
My college coach thinks I have a bad attitude, so he makes me take ballet lessons as punishment. If I don’t turn things around on the field next season, he’ll bench me. I have no idea what ballet has to do with football, but it turns out the real punishment is that the beautiful dance teacher refuses to get involved with me.
Two years later, we cross paths again, and it’s not the other team’s offensive line who brings me to my knees—it’s a hundred-pound ballerina.
She doesn’t think I’m boyfriend material, and I used to think that too.
I’ve been a beast on the field and in the bedroom, but now I’m going to prove that I can be a man for her…and for our surprise baby.
I thought I was all about the smash and dash.
But getting Charlie Bardot pregnant changed everything.

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

He has been both a stage and television actor, and before plunging into the romance genre, he had been narrating commercials, audiobooks, and explainers for well over a decade from his home studio. From alphas to bosses to cocky sports stars (a particular favorite), he loves sparring with beautiful, sassy heroines (and their talented narrators) but also loves winning them over and reaching that happily ever after. He is excited to now create those stories as an author.

Review – Bitter Sweet Heart by H. Hunting

Bitter Sweet Heart; Lies, Hearts, & Truths #2
(#2 within a series)

Publication Date: September 1, 2022

Genre/Tropes: New Adult/Sports/Age Gap/Forbidden Romance

Author: H.Hunting

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:
I should have known, I should have been prepared for Maverick Waters, but his giant heart, his beautiful soul absolutely blew me away!!

As the son of NHL star Alex Waters and brilliant, but mostly known for her runaway mouth, Violet Waters, Maverick has a lot to live up to within his own family. Living in the shadow of his father isn’t exactly easy, not that his dad has pressured him into playing hockey or even following in his footsteps…it truly is something that Maverick has always wanted, until senior year of college hits him like a ton of bricks.

Maverick is the middle child, basically. He’s the child who doesn’t create waves, he’s the one who fixes everyone’s problems, he’s also the one that tends to get forgotten. How is that last statement even possible when he’s following in his father’s footsteps and living in the hockey limelight? Just look at the previous two statements and it all begins to make sense.

Within Maverick’s own family, especially when they ALL suffered a terrible trama, it’s easy to forget that it affects everyone and not just the individual. Helena tackled this anxiety and past trauma beautifully. I was in tears over and over again not only for Maverick, but for his entire family during these highly emotional moments. While Maverick was the fixer, the one his siblings always relied on and his parents could turn to, the one thing his parents didn’t have to worry about was Maverick, but what did he do when his siblings no longer needed him and he’s the one who might be a little lost?

Maverick’s has a huge….heart (where is your mind going?) His huge heart extended to the woman he meets, Clover Sweet. She’s someone he never saw coming, but once he’s in, he can’t stop thinking about her. His professor, who is forbidden and completely not available while he sits in her class.

Then her life completely flips his world upside down and the compassion he displays…sigh…he completely broke me open and I’m not only in awe of him, but how he lives his life, his core values and morals is just inspiring. Well done Alex and Violet for raising such a fine young man, with a mouth that does tend to run away with him and a well endowed….well you know 😉 This time let your mind run free…LOL

Bitter Sweet Heart is melty with all the feels, tears, and sweet moments that Hunting is well known for. The Waters family is great together and especially in those small moments. Get some tissues for those.

Synopsis:
From the outside looking in, I live a charmed life: hockey legend for a father, my own promising future in the league, a great family, awesome friends. It’s not untrue, but it’s not quite that simple either.

My dad’s advice has always been to make hockey my number-one priority—at least until I make it to the pros. So, going into my senior year of college, I have a plan. I’ll put in the effort required to pass my classes, play hockey like my life depends on it, and avoid relationships. All I have to do is stay focused on the end game, and I’ll walk away with a degree and into a career in the NHL.

It should be easy.

But when a woman literally floats into my dock, just before summer ends and my senior year begins, I can’t resist one last hookup. What harm could a one-night stand do? It’s not like we even exchanged numbers.

Everything is fine until I run into her on campus.

It’s a big school. I should be able to avoid her.

Except she happens to be in my class.

And she’s not a student.

She’s my professor.

Review – Missed Notes by L.A. Cotton

Missed Notes; Rixon High #5
(#5 within a series)

Publication Date: August 23, 2022

Genre/Tropes: New Adult/Friends-to-Lovers/Sports Romance

Author: L.A. Cotton

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:
Soooo many tears….I needed deep breaths and pauses just to keep reading.

We can all admit that teenage hormones amplify everything to the extreme, add in something that will alter the course of your life and it becomes an overload to any teenage system.

It’s probably why I love reading new adult books so much, the emotions are heightened, the actions are amplified, and everything is just bigger.

Cole and Sofia are thrown into a situation that very few teens have to face and given Sofe’s battle, it’s one that the author tackled with grace and a bucketload of tears.

Both Cole and Sofia have had a crush on one another for quite some time, but neither told the other nor reciprocated, due to one big obstacle…Aaron Bennet. He is Cole’s best friend and Sofe’s twin brother. He’s always been wedged between them and neither knew how to get around the big guy, but when things finally start happening in Sofia’s life that make it nearly impossible for Cole to look the other way they decide it was time for both of them to tell Aaron about their feelings and begin living their truth.

Without giving away the experience, I’m just going to say this; Cole is probably one if the best boyfriends in this series. Prepare to fall hard, but know that this story is also heartbreaking, not because of dumb teenage mistakes, or misspoken words, it’s on a totally different level when it came to pulling on my heartstrings. Family plays a big part in the book, not that they haven’t before, but I love how close these kids are to their parents and how the original Raiders have stayed close to make it one big family as the years have gone by.

This book will require lots of tissues so be prepared and stock up. I could have used wipers for my eyeballs so I could continue reading through the tears.

Missed Notes has one of the most emotional storylines, but the book was well worth it.

Review – Crash Course by Cathryn Fox

Crash Course; Scotia Storms #3
(#3 within a series)

Publication Date: September 20, 2022

Genre/Tropes: New Adult/Sports/Enemies-to-Lovers Romance

Author: Cathryn Fox

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:
All I want to say is days of the week underpants. Review done. LOL! Okay…seriously, I can’t remember the last time I recall thinking of this particular item, much less wearing them, but now I really want to own a set just to see if the hubby pays as much attention as Beckett does to Piper. Who knew days of the week underpants would be sooooo hot!?!?!

I love reading characters who are so similar when it comes to morals they are practically the same person, but when it comes to what society deems as important, like financial or social standing, you are judged on a very different scale. Let me explain…

Piper and Beckett come from very different backgrounds. She would be considered a spoiled princess, raised with any and everything she could ever want, except for having her parents actual love and affection. As an only child to millionaires she literally can have what she wants, but it’s a lonely life when your parents are running a business and have no time left for you.

Now, Beckett’s family is blue collar, large, but full of so much love he knows no matter what he will always have them to fall back on. His siblings, grandparents, parents, they all live close by and even with his dreams of making it to the NHL, he wants to take care of his family so they won’t have to work as hard since they did so much to help him get where he is. He has a huge heart, oh and a side note, he’s also great with kids…pile of mush and be still my heart.

Even though they were raised in very different environments, they actually are very hard workers, care deeply about their families, and are loyal to those they care about. They just haven’t cared about each other for a very long time and it all comes down to a big misunderstanding, oh and add in the fact that Beckett is a family kind of guy and Piper…well, she’s not.

These two enemies to lovers eventually learn to coexist and when they discover that their old friendship hasn’t withered away, but instead formed into a new passion…well, I’ll just say, those days of the week panties make an appearance. I know I just won’t let it go will I?

Their story is sweet and insanely spicy. It certainly inspired me to look up new undergarments is all I’m saying. I have loved this entire series and how each book is different, but set in the same world. I can’t get enough of Fox’s books.

Synopsis:
He’s the best goalie in the league – Scotia Storm’s golden boy.

Everyone loves the team’s biggest player – everyone but me.

That’s okay, he doesn’t like me either.

We might have grown up in the same small Cape Breton town, but we’re different people from different worlds.

Which makes me wonder why our friends asked us to babysit during summer break.

The forced proximity proves to be hard on my head…and my traitorous body.

But the last thing I want is to get involved with the guy who blatantly ignored me growing up.

Except he’s not ignoring me anymore.

Nope, not ignoring me at all.

Instead, he’s showering me with kisses and touches and OMG, things are so damn good, I forget why we hate each other.

Until summer comes to a close and our past catches up to us, reminding me why we can never ever be anything more than enemies.

Blurb:

I never imagined that one night could end the friendship Beau Bishop and I’d had since birth and sever all ties between our families. Especially when less than an hour prior to that tragic accident at the racetrack that night, he had confessed his love to me under the bleachers. A bond I’d thought could never be broken was smashed to smithereens in an instant.

He left Alabama, hightailing it to Florida without so much as a good-bye.

Two years later, we’ve crossed paths again. Only he’s no longer known as Beau Bishop. No, now, the boy that I’ve been in love with my entire life is called Bama. And Bama is a cocky, closed-off jerk.

As much as he tries to push me away, he should know how persistent I am when it comes to something I want. Losing is never an option. Just ask all of the guys I’ve raced to become number one.

Getting everything I’ve ever wanted is finally so close I can almost reach out and grab it. But you know that saying—waiting for the other shoe to drop? Yeah … well, those words were always in the back of my mind. Knowing it seemed too good to be true to finally have Beau Bishop in the palm of my hand.

And I was right. Because once again, I was alone.

Sometimes, fear makes you do stupid things when it comes to the ones you love. We were a walking example of that.

This is book two in the Florida East University series.

Prologue
Before

Julia

Meet me at my locker. Can’t wait to c u.
OK, I reply back to the text with a grin.
Five minutes later the bell rings, and I hand in my essay and dash out of class. A sea of maroon and green uniforms greet me in the hallway, girls in crisp pleated skirts and knee socks, guys in khakis and blazers. Welcome to Bellemeade Prep, a private school for the rich.
I avoid a cluster of students, stumbling and nearly losing my backpack as I hurry. Giddiness races over me, and for a second, I feel goofy for the excitement, then shove it away.
He’s a piece of nirvana in a world I don’t belong in.
It’s okay to feel as if I’m floating.
I’m in love with him.
And today is the day.
We’re going to do it.
It’s been weeks of hot glances, erotic kisses, and his fingers in my panties in every private place we could find. The gym. The drama room. The yearbook room. Once in the cafeteria while I sat in his lap with a coat over my skirt.
The crowd parts and I see him leaning against his locker.
My breath catches.
Dark red hair frames a face that angels carved. Angular jawline, lush lips, piercing topaz eyes.
His lashes are long and dark and dramatically thick.
He’s not a pale redhead. His skin is golden. Like a lion.
He could have any girl here.
I’m not the pretty cheerleader.
Or the social butterfly.
Or rich.
“Hey, gorgeous. Finally.” He smiles as he curls his arms around my waist and gazes soulfully into my eyes.
“Hey,” I breathe.
“School’s over. Wanna go take a ride in the Aston Martin? We can put the top down and go wherever you want.” His eyes lower. “Do anything you want.”
I don’t even have to think about it. “Okay.”
His fingers playfully untie the black ribbon around the neck of my shirt. He tugs it off, then unbuttons the top two buttons. His hand snakes in and presses against my sternum as we move closer and breathe each other in. We need to touch each other. It’s been this way since he sat next to me in poetry class after Christmas.
He dips his head to my neck, then bites my ear. “I want to fuck you in that car.”
I gasp as tingles erupt over my skin.
I’m new to this school, but I’ve heard the rumors about him. That he’s the king of breakups. That he has sex with girls, then moves on.
But they don’t know him like I do.
He’s perfect boyfriend material . . .

Review – Boyfriend Material by Ilsa Madden-Mills

45741390. sy475

Boyfriend Material; Hawthorne University #2
(An interconnected standalone within a series)

Publication Date: July 25, 2022

Genre/Tropes: New Adult/Second Chance/Enemies-to-Lovers/Sports Romance

Author: Ilsa Madden-Mills

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:
Ilsa Madden-Mills gives us an emotional, heart breaking, and deeply touching story with her newest hockey romance in Boyfriend Material. This is a book that will reach into your chest, carve out a piece of your heart and end up residing there forever.

Waiting for this book, I knew it would be fantastic, but that word hardly begins to describe the emotional journey that this story took me on. The saying that – everyone has a story if you just take a moment to listen, or especially the one – everyone wears a mask to hide their true self. Both of those are true especially when it comes to reaching inside what makes Eric and Julia tick. Both wear masks and are basically shells of what they present to the world, but through their journey we both learn who the other is under all the facade. It’s not an easy road for either of them which makes their connection so deep and heartfelt.

It’s the hardest thing in the world to let your shield down, especially to someone who’s hurt you before. Eric and Julia have been down this road, but it’s that past connection that also binds them in a way to their present. They went to prep school together and Eric was, I hate to say a typical dumb teen boy who hurt Julia, because there is so much more going on that I will not divulge, but to Julia that is what it appeared as. Now it’s years later and while they have been attending the same university she’s been able to stay away from him, until recently. Eric keeps popping up like a knight in shining armor and she doesn’t exactly know how to feel about that given their past, but perhaps it’s just best to begin as friends, especially given their circumstances. She has bigger issues than an old flame and her story is only half of what makes this an emotional ride.

Eric is also just as confused as to why he keeps running into Julia, not his willingness to help because he thinks anyone would or should help, but fate certainly seems like it wants to connect them in a big way. His life is a mess, not that anyone would know since he only presents what he wants the world to see as the golden boy. He’s the captain of the hockey team, heading to law school, and doesn’t have money trouble. What could possibly be wrong? All that glitters isn’t gold and Eric’s life is flaking off that gold paint a piece at a time. Julia is one of the few who see beneath the luster and shine. Isn’t that what truly makes a relationship stronger than glitz and glamor?

Their story isn’t easy and there are lots of scary real truths that Ilsa doesn’t shy away from. Honestly, I loved the story even more for not fictionalizing their reality. Boyfriend Material has very raw moments, but also beautiful ones. It’s another gorgeous addition to the Hawthorne U series and I loved reading every page of it.

Synopsis:
Eric’s not Boyfriend Material. Or is he?

Review – Sin Bin by Teagan Hunter

60605141. sy475

Sin Bin; Carolina Comets #4
(A standalone within a series)

Publication Date: July 21, 2022

Genre/Tropes: Second Chance/Age-Gap/Workplace/Sports Romance

Author: Teagan Hunter

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:
Oh my hot hockey player!!! This is the hottest Carolina Comets book yet!

Owen Smith is by far the hottest, smexiest man and oh my, did he incinerate all of my panties right off my body! (fanning myself) There is just something about an older man who knows what he wants and doesn’t hesitate to pleasure his woman. Is it hot in here? I mean I know it’s summer and all, but I needed to crank up the air contitioning while reading this slice of delicious apple pie. -wink-

Smith may be one of the oldest members on the Comets hockey team and he takes a lot of ribbing from his teammates for that very fact, but Smith has dedicated his life to the very sport he loves, which might be coming closer to ending than he would like. What does a man who’s lived, breathed, and loved a sport above everything else finally do when it ends? He’s only ever felt passion like when he’s on the ice one other time in his life and unfortunately rekindling with her just isn’t possible, she’s the coaches niece and works for the team.  Losing his career before he’s ready to give it up doesn’t seem logical, but when Emilia’s around Smith’s brain tends to short circuit.

Emilia Anderson loves her job and currently she has a chance for a promotion. One she’s been working tirelessly for and has a real shot at, except it comes with working closely to the one man she also works very hard at staying away from, Owen Smith. A few years ago before Emilia began working for the Comets they spent a fantastic weekend together, but once she discovered who he was she knew it could never happen again. For over two years they have successfully avoided one another, but now it’s unavoidable and everything she’s worked for is on the line. Can she risk her heart along with everything she’s worked for?

If you believe in fate, second chances, hot, hot chemistry, and found families then this book will make you swoon and will certainly light you up. Have a cool beverage nearby to cool off because Smith and Emilia together are pure fire!!

Synopsis:
I should stay away.

Emilia Anderson is the team’s social media manager, and there are strict rules about not fraternizing with the staff. It doesn’t matter that we already accidentally broke them—we can’t let it happen again.

Besides, my time in the NHL is winding down, and this is my last shot at winning the Cup. I need to focus on the game, not some girl I have no business chasing.

She’s ten years younger than me.
She’s the assistant coach’s niece.
And she works for the team.

She’s off-limits…and too hard to resist.

I know better than to play this game…

But it looks like I’m heading to the sin bin.

Review – Cruel Promise Daniela Romero

58241082. sy475

Cruel Promise; Devils of Sun Valley #4, Dominique and Kasey #2
(#2 within a trilogy, #4 within a series)

Publication Date: July 8, 2022

Genre/Tropes: Trilogy/New Adult/Sports/Enemies to Lovers Romance

Author: Daniela Romero

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:
Picking up right after Cruel Devil, Kasey is grieving the loss of her mother by losing herself in Dominique. These two already did not have the healthiest of relationships. Kasey is the little sister of Dom’s best friend Aaron and for years Kasey and Dominique have fought like cats and dogs. But when Aaron had to fly down to retrieve their mother’s remains Kasey’s grief leaned on Dominique and their relationship turned intimate. Now as Cruel Promise begins their relationship gets a bit more complicated when Aaron returns and neither Kasey nor Dom know how to end what they began.

I enjoyed the more intimate aspects of this book, just for the simple fact that we get more of Dominique and Kasey together. Now I’m not specifically talking about the smexy times, which are super hot BTW, but we get more of their internal struggles on their relationship each other. There are battles coming at them from every angle, but since they are not in a real relationship, they both internalize everything so they both fight thoughts on their relationships with family, the struggles that will come after college, the pressures from all kinds of outside factors like coming from different races and social classes. There is a lot that should keep these two apart which is why they try to keep things casual and yet something inside both of them won’t allow them to cut ties.

Cruel Promise is an unputdownable book with chapter after chapter of non-stop emotional or steamy good reading.  It’s also not over quite yet, there is still more to come. Dominique and Kasey still have more challenges to face will they be together when all is said and done?

Synopsis:
Grief is a fickle bi*ch, and I’ll do anything to escape her.

Cruel Devil (Devils of Sun Valley High, #3) Cruel Devil, Devils of Sun Valley #3, Dominique and Kasey #1

Dominique Price hates me.
He wants me.
He can never have me.

At least that’s what I tell him.
Good looking, arrogant, football God, everything comes so easy for him. I won’t be just another game to win.
It doesn’t matter that I want him.
It doesn’t matter that with just one look, he takes my breath away.

He’s my brother’s best friend and officially off limits.
But when he touches me, I forget what we’re supposed to be.
Acquaintances. Enemies. Nothing.
And I dream of what we could be.
Friends. Lovers. Everything.

If only everyone’s expectations weren’t standing in the way.
