New Release & Review – Shenanigans, Sarina Bowen

March 15, 2022 | Posted in Release Day Blitz, Review | By



What I meant to do in Vegas: Let my hair down for once and celebrate winning a medal at my first women’s hockey all-stars competition.

What I actually did: Got senior prom drunk and woke up married to Brooklyn’s star winger, the great Neil Drake. 

He’s the heir to a billion dollars, and I barely survived my childhood. Our friendship is based strictly only on hockey, takeout food, and smack talk. 

And now holy matrimony. Although we both know it can’t last, especially once his evil family gets wind of our Vegas shenanigans… 

Contains: Meddling teammates, meddling parents, ugly jewelry, and a pretend-kiss that nearly sets the world on fire.

5 out of 5 stars

Shenanigans is the sixth book in the Brooklyn series by Sarina Bowen. I love this series so much! This is another awesome pairing of both the hero and heroine being Brooklyn hockey players. Charli is bada** and I already knew she and Neil were going to be fire together. They come from completely different backgrounds and lifestyles and up to this point they appeared to hate each other. But everyone knew better. Especially when they end up drunk and married in Vegas. It’s hilarious and perfect for them. Now they have to deal with each other and their feelings. Neil wants a favor from his fake wife and Charli wants a new place to live. Win win. Until they start to really like each other. Become friends. And then more. Their chemistry is off the charts and their flirt game is epic. And they aren’t as opposite as they thought they were. Neil had feelings for Charli before he married her and now he wants her even more. But she just can’t trust people. Her past is still too fresh. Can Neil tell Charli how he really feels before it’s too late? Will Charli trust that Nate isn’t who she thought he was? He’s everything. I love these two and all their friends and Jimbo! Being with these two teams, and groups of friends just makes me happy. I also loved that Neil is a type 1 diabetic and that was a huge part of this story. It showed what he needed to go through to check his sugar, eat and his send insulin to his pump.

Audio – Jason Clarke and Vanessa Edwin were really fantastic! I love them both and I though they brought the perfect mix of humor and emotion to Neil and Charli.


Release Blitz & Review – Wild Side, Lacey Black

March 15, 2022 | Posted in Release Day Blitz, Review | By


Title: Wild Side
Series: Burgers and Brew Crüe #4
Author: Lacey Black
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: March 15, 2022






Last man standing. I’ve watched all three of my friends fall in love with no desire to ever follow in their footsteps. Collectively, we own the hottest restaurant, bar, and brewery in town. They are a few of the places I find peace, a refuge against this cruel world. When I’m on the stage playing music, everything just seems to fade away.
Until I saw her.
She was sitting in the crowd, a bright, beautiful ray of light, fighting against the darkness surrounding me. I do everything I can to keep her in the friend-zone, but she’s making it difficult.
I don’t just want her; I need her.
The first moment I saw him on the stage I knew he was different. Rough, tattooed, and with the voice of an angel, he was playing guitar and singing a song about love and hurt. I was captivated, completely drawn to the emotions I saw in those warm whiskey eyes. From that moment on, I felt compelled to be his friend.
He didn’t make it easy.
The boundaries between friendship and relationship start to blur, and even though he fights me every step of the way, I can’t help the way I feel. I promised him I’d always be his friend.
Now I want more.

Wild Side is the fourth novel in the Burgers and Brew Crüe series by Lacey Black. You can read each book as standalone but I HIGHLY recommend reading the series in order since they are all connected by friendship, family and business. I have been waiting for Jameson’s story, we all knew it was going to happen one day and that day is here…
Jameson is happy for his friends. They have all fallen in love and their lives are better for it but he never wanted any of it. He lived in darkness even though others saw light in him. They were his real family. He was content living his life surrounded by them, the business, music, and motorcycle rides. Amie to scratch an itch once in awhile. But then he saw her. A woman in pearls watching him on stage. She was different. She was bathed in light. The kind of woman who probably thought he was the worst kind of man. Trouble and she would be right. She should stay away. He should stay away…
Madelyn was new to town. She only had two people in her life in Stewart Grove. Her grandmother and cousin. She was happy to be free of her New York life. She wasn’t looking for more until she saw him. A man who took up the stage and her attention. He was broad, tattooed, and all man. A man who she didn’t seeing coming. He was different and she wanted him. She was warned to stay away but everything brought them together. New friendships, sexual tension, and an undeniable connection. It was only supposed to be no-strings attached between new friends but it was more…
They both knew it. They are both scared to fall. Will they catch each other?
These two are🔥🔥 Two badasses for different reasons. Two souls connecting. I am so happy that Jameson found the one. It was so fun catching up with the crüe. They are friendship and family goals. I hope to see them all again one day.
Over and over, I tasted and savored the feel of her beneath me.
My rough to her smooth.
“You ever get up on that bar?” she asks, catch me a little off guard.
“Hell no. Walker’s the only dancer in the group.”
“Too bad,” she replies, averting her gaze. “I bet you’ve got all the moves.”
“You know, for a man with few words, you sure know how to make them count.”
