Cover Reveal – Join the Club, Lani Lynn Vale

November 18, 2019 By

There are a few lessons one has to learn for themselves. Then there are the lessons
that most people don’t have to learn because it’s just not done.
For instance, most people know instinctively
that they shouldn’t crave the mother of their brother’s child.

Bourne Pena isn’t most men.

Bourne does everything he can to fight the
attraction he feels for Delanie, but in the end, his refusal to go there almost
ends up costing him his life.

***

Delanie Davidsdottir just wanted to forget. One
night, she wanted to feel like a normal human being.
That one night changes her life and gives her a
daughter that becomes her heart and soul. From that point forward, she does her
level best to keep her head on straight and not make any more mistakes.

And falling for her child’s father’s twin
brother—say that three times fast— would be a mistake. Not only is he Trouble
with a capital T, he’s also a SWAT officer that puts his life on the line every
single day.

She can’t take another loss like the one she
suffered once before.

Then again, Delanie never encountered a man like
Bourne Pena before, either.

“Every time I think Kennedy Ryan can’t possibly raise the bar any further, she proves me wrong in the most delightful way possible. Lennix left me breathless. Maxim stole my heart.” — Katee Robert, New York Times Bestselling Author

The Rebel King, the stunning, beautiful conclusion to the All The King’s Men Duet, from USA Today bestselling author Kennedy Ryan, is available now! Get ready for a binge read!

REBEL_KING_FINAL.jpg

Ambition. Revenge. Love.

RITA® Award-winning author Kennedy Ryan delivers the gripping conclusion to the All the King’s Men Duet.

Raised to resist. Bred to fight. Survival is in my blood and surrender is never an option.

Though surrender is what Maxim Cade demanded of my body and heart, I had other plans. We were fast-burning fascination and combustible chemistry, but the man I trusted with everything was a trickster. A thief who stole my love. If what we had was a lie, why did it feel so real? The man I swore to hate will have it all, and wants me at his side. But power is a game, and we’re the pawns and players.

Facing insurmountable odds, will we win the world, or will we lose it all?

Kara's Review

5 out of 5 stars

The Rebel King is the conclusion to the All the King’s Men duet by the talented Kennedy Ryan. The Kingmaker was fantastic and I’ve been waiting to see what was going to happen to Lennix and Maxim. I was not disappointed! The suspense, pain, love, lust, struggle, and heartbreak just about killed me. I was sucked in from the very first word and couldn’t read fast enough. I needed to know what was going to happen next. It was like gasping for air. My heart almost couldn’t take it! Maxim will do everything for his Nix. She’s is soul mate. He doesn’t always handle things the right way, but the need to protect her is the strongest thing he’s ever felt. He would fight any man for her. He would die for her. Lennix is independent. She doesn’t like being told what to do and where to go. But being with Maxim brings changes she’s not sure she’s ready for. She didn’t work this hard to just give up her dreams. They have an uphill battle and sometimes can’t see the end of the road, but they want to travel it together. Is their love strong enough for everything that will be thrown at them? Can they learn to compromise for love? This story. My heart! I had to stop reading at one point because I couldn’t see through my tears. Kennedy’s books always squeeze my heart, but this was something special. Her writing just keeps getting better and better. She’s in a league all her own.

Title: I’m Yours
Author: Jennifer Van Wyk
Genre: Contemporary Romance, Single Dad Romance

I left Lakeside, Montana heartbroken and lost with no desire to ever return.
But life had other plans.
Moving back wasn’t what I wanted to do, but I’d do anything for my daughter Emmy. Including put myself right in the path of Sadie Jones.
My daughter’s new dance teacher.
The reason my heart was never fully opened to anyone else was because it’s always belonged to her.

He was meant for more than what this town could offer him.
Than what I could offer him.
I tried to warn him to stay away from me but he refused to listen.
If only he would have, maybe then I wouldn’t feel so broken.

The heart is mysterious. It can be closed off and open at the same time.
Unfortunately, sometimes it takes danger lurking around the corner to make it choose a side.
All I can hope is that one day I can finally hear the words… I’m Yours.

Kara's Review

5 out of 5 stars

I’m Yours is the first book in a new series by one of my favorite authors, Jennifer Van Wyk. Jennifer is a master at small town romance and Reed is my favorite hero of hers since James (Sigh…swoon). I’m Yours is an epic second chance romance with a sexy tattooed cowboy, single dad and his daughter’s dance teacher. But she’s not just the dance teacher, she’s his first love. The woman he never forgot and never stopped loving. He moved away from home and had a nice life. He had a family, a home, a business. But when it’s finally time to go back home, he wasn’t expecting to see her so soon or to have such a reaction to her after all these years. She’s not a girl, but a woman and she’s gorgeous. He just wants to get to know the adult version of the girl he fell for in high school. Sadie never stopped loving Reed. She’s achieved her dreams, a dance studio, a home of her own. But she never settled down and found love. Mostly because when Reed left town, he took her heart with him. Watching these characters reunite just warmed my heart! Reed’s daughter Emmy stole my heart and his parents are hilarious!

They were always meant to be it just took them a while to get the timing right. Home is where your heart is and Reed’s heart always belonged to Sadie. I can’t wait for the next in the series!

 

He grins.

Takes a sip of coffee.

Winks.

And then my ovaries explode.

Shit.

I’m so screwed.

 

I pull on the door and step inside, looking around. I hear sultry music from the back and hear someone call out, “I’ll be out in a second!”

I look around, pictures of dancers grace the walls. It didn’t look like much from the outside, but inside tells a different story. There are four rooms plus what looks like an office, each of the dance rooms have a large glass wall and a quick look inside shows a mirror on the opposite wall. There’s a sign that says “No shoes allowed past this point” and I furrow my brow, wondering what that means. There’s a built-in shelf that looks like it’s to store shoes and maybe even hang backpacks and coats. It’s impressive, really.

This same studio was here when I was growing up, but it looks updated, modern, and when I look to the side at another sign that reads “All dancers welcome here” I know that it’s exactly where I want Emmy to be.

“Keep going, ladies. You’re looking great.”

That voice. I know that voice.

It arrests me, my feet glued to the floor.

And then I see her.

She’s standing probably ten feet away from me and she gasps. I open my mouth to say something but I don’t even know what to say. Sadie. Our eyes connect and she takes a step forward then another. I do the same but then neither of us come any closer.

“Holy shit,” Sadie breathes, stopping in her tracks. My sentiments exactly. I had no idea she still lived in Lakeside, though I made it very clear to my parents that I didn’t want to know details on Sadie’s life.

We stare at each other, eyes blinking slowly. “What…” the rest of my question sticks in my throat. I’m not even sure what I was going to ask her. What is she doing here? What’s she been up to the last dozen years? Why couldn’t she love me back all those years ago?

“Reed.” My name sounds like heaven coming from her lips. I close my eyes, letting it wash over me. It’s been so long since I’ve heard her voice or seen her in the flesh, not just in my dreams.

“Sadie.” My voice is thick and scratchy. She bites her lip and looks over her shoulder when the music in the back changes, someone calling her name and asking if Sadie wants her to continue.

“Can you take over for a bit, Kandace?”

“You got it!”

When her eyes return to mine, we continue our stare down, neither of us making a move.

“My daughter. She’s looking for dance classes.” It’s the first thing that comes to mind to say. But what am I supposed to do here? Shoot the shit with her? Make small talk? She made it clear twelve years ago that she no longer cared about me, so it’s best to keep things cordial now. If she came out to help a visitor, that must mean she works here, right? It’s been a long time since I’ve felt this way; like my mind is stuck.

Her eyes widen at my mention of Emmy but they don’t seem surprised. Of course they aren’t. I’m sure she’s heard all about Emmy from my mom. Possibly even the fact that Katherine died, too. I assumed that when mom was keeping in touch with Sadie, it meant that they were doing so over social media or the occasional phone call. Now I wonder if they’re hanging out together, spending time with one another.

“I heard… about your wife. I’m sorry.” So, she did know.

I nod, shoving my hands in my pockets. I never understood why people said they were sorry. It wasn’t her who forced Katherine to stare at her phone screen rather than focus on the road ahead of her. I suppose it’s one of those sayings that started years ago and it just never changed over time.

“Thanks.”

She looks away and then back again, her eyes still so pretty. “Has Emerson danced before?”

My entire body flinches at her use of my daughter’s name. She knows about me. Possibly knew I was moving home and I didn’t even know she was still here. I take a minute to really look at her and that’s when I realize what she’s wearing.

Fish neck stockings, heels that look like they could be used as a weapon, they’re so tall, a pair of shiny bright green underwear and a black bra thing that looks incredibly complicated with all the straps.

“What the hell are you wearing?” I ask, probably rudely but she just smiles, giggling a little and it’s like a vice is gripping my heart. I haven’t heard her voice, her laugh, in so long. I missed it. I missed her. The way her eyes sparkle in amusement and her lips lift in a smile. Damn, she’s even more beautiful than I remember. When I last saw her, she was still growing into herself. Now, though, I see everything, thanks to her attire. Firm stomach, full breasts, strong arms and legs. The only thing that’s the same about Sadie Jones is her hair. Still pin straight and blonde.

She throws a thumb over her shoulder. “I teach pole dancing in the back.”

“My daughter isn’t pole dancing!” I’m sure I look horrified but I figured this was a regular dance studio for little kids.

“That’s good because she’s not old enough for that. Maybe we could start her out with some beginner ballet?” A teasing smile stretches across her face and I can’t stop my eyes from drifting down, focusing on her full lips.

I’m standing here in front of Sadie for the first time in twelve years as she takes a break from teaching a pole dancing class. We’re discussing starting my daughter out with some beginner ballet classes while she’s at her first day of Kindergarten. How is this my life? I’m barely holding it together, feeling like I’m about to come out of my own skin. It’s too much for me to deal with. She’s too pretty and sexy and my daughter just started school and… shit. I need a drink. And I rarely drink.

“Okay,” I find myself saying.

She moves with ease on heels that should roll her ankle and brushes past me, her scent lingering in the air between us. A mixture of something sweet that reminds me of when my mom would bake pumpkin bars in the fall and something else that brings back memories better left buried.

She hands me a piece of paper and pen. “Fill this out and here’s a list of our classes and the times so you can take a look at what works for your schedule. How old is she? Five?”

“Yes,” I tell her, wondering how she’s so calm. Meanwhile, I’m about to come unglued and out of my skin.

 

 

From the Ground Up is Jennifer’s first published novel, with the hopes of many more to come. Jennifer makes her home in rural Iowa with her high school sweetheart, three beautiful and amazing kids, one crazy Jack Russell terrier. This is where her love for all things reading, baking, and cooking happen. Jennifer’s family enjoys camping, boating, and spending time outside as much as possible. When she’s not writing or editing/proofreading manuscripts for the many talented authors she’s come to love, she’s sipping coffee or iced tea with her kindle in her lap or binging on Netflix.

Cover Reveal – The Mighty Anchor, Carrie Aarons 

November 13, 2019 By

A stoic force to be reckoned with.
The steady rock on which England is destined to lean.
Everyone’s reliable mate, at the ready to defend when called upon.

To the world, Vance Morley is the next great keeper for the Rogue Football Club, biding his time at the academy. The definition of tall, dark and handsome, his quiet confidence and mysterious persona only draw the public in. He’s their mighty anchor, both on and off the pitch.

But when it comes to the one woman he claims to love, he conveniently vanishes at the exact moment I need him. The first time I saw Vance, he was a ten-year-old standing on his lawn across the street. The first time he kissed me, we were sixteen and sitting on the very shores we grew up on. We crashed into each other like waves in a storm, fated to destroy everything in our paths. Including each other.

The first time Vance saw our son, by serendipitous accident, my little boy had already lived the first year of his life. And instantly, the man who chose football over me wants to have it all. There is no way I can trust his declarations of love and fatherhood, especially when I’m set to marry another man.

We’re a new game, one to occupy him until the world stage beckons. But the more I try to tell myself he’s not the one, the more Vance’s efforts to win us back increase.

How can I guard my heart against seeing my son with his father?
Can Vance really sacrifice his dreams in the name of love and family?
Is there a way that everyone else’s safe harbor can finally become mine too?

About TWIST OF FATE:

From New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Jill Shalvis comes a new story in her Heartbreaker Bay series…

When the one you want …

Daisy doesn’t believe love is ever-lasting, so it’s ironic as hell that she parlayed a business degree into a wedding planning business. More ironic still is her latest job bringing her back into contact with the man who’d taught her that love can’t last.

Is the one you can’t have…

To say Diego has been taught the hard way to bury emotions is an understatement. But when he’s called home to help the brother he hasn’t seen or spoken to in years, that’s one thing. It’s another entirely to also come face to face with the first woman he ever loved. First and only…

Can love conquer all?

Daisy’s learned to depend only on herself, and Diego is and always has been an island of one. And yet when they’re together, even when they’re bickering, still wary and haunted by memories of what was … it’s magic. The question is, how to find their way back to each other…?

**Every 1001 Dark Nights novella is a standalone story. For new readers, it’s an introduction to an author’s world. And for fans, it’s a bonus book in the author’s series. We hope you’ll enjoy each one as much as we do.**

Kara's Review

4.5 out of 5 stars

Twist of Fate is a novella by the talented Jill Shalvis set in her Heartbreaker Bay series. You don’t need to read the series to enjoy this second chance romance. Diego left home ten years ago and now he’s back for his brother’s wedding. They have a strained relationship, so his homecoming isn’t exactly happy. He’s there for the wedding and then he’s gone again. Until he sees Daisy, his first love. The woman who left him to go to college. So much has happened since they’ve seen each other but the chemistry is still there. Can Diego and Daisy fix the past and have a future together? I enjoyed this second chance romance! It’s short, sweet and a little sexy. I love his brother Rocco and his fiancé Tyler too!

Excerpt

Daisy smiled at Tyler and then turned back to Diego. “It’s nice to see you.”

What the hell? He’d fallen asleep on the boat and was dreaming this, right? Nice to see him? Was she kidding? He’d told her that he loved her, and then she’d left. Moved to New York for college without looking back. He opened his mouth to remind her of that fact, but Rocco stood up and tugged on his arm.

“I think we should talk outside.”

Diego wrenched free without looking at him and turned to Daisy. “I need to talk to you.” He had no idea what game she was playing, but he intended to find out.

Daisy opened her mouth to say something, but before she could, Rocco once again put a hand on him.

Diego looked down at his arm. Rocco was older by two years, but at six foot four, Diego had four inches on his brother—most of them harder and leaner. Rocco with his bulkier mass outweighed Diego and was more badass when it came right down to it, but Diego was working on a lot of resentment and anger, so it’d be a solid match.

And a fight long overdue.

Rocco dropped his hand from Diego and shoved his fingers through his shaggy, black hair that was the same as Diego’s. Apparently, Rocco had learned some restraint over the years, but not too much as he jerked his head to the door and lumbered out.

Diego followed without looking back.

Which wasn’t easy because Daisy had looked…different. Among other things. She’d always been girl-next-door pretty. And part of what Diego had loved about her was that they’d had a lot in common. Both had grown up on the wrong side of the tracks, the poor kids who didn’t have a penny to their name.

She was still girl-next-door pretty, but there was a whole new air about her now, as well. She was dressed in a blue suit dress and matching heels, looking professional, smart, and incredibly sure of herself—which he had to admit, was attractive as hell.

But she also looked like someone he didn’t know. Certainly not the type of woman who’d mesh with a guy who lived on a boat.

“Well,” he heard her say to Tyler as he walked away. “That went about as well as expected.”

In response, Tyler laughed softly, apparently unconcerned that his fiancé was about to get the pretty punched off his face.

Excerpt:

Wearing nothing but a pair of jeans and a bad ‘tude, Diego Stone lay on the sky bridge of his boat and stared up at the San Francisco sky. It was butt-ass cold, turbulent and moody, all of which suited him just fine.

He had no idea why he’d left sunny, warm, sexy San Diego.

Oh, wait, he did.

He’d received a text asking him to show up for his brother’s important, all-hands-on-deck wedding planning lunch that, as Rocco’s best man, Diego was required to attend. A text. And not from Rocco, but from his fiancé, Tyler.

Hands behind his head, feet crossed, Diego purposely relaxed his body one inch at a time. It was a technique he’d learned early on during a childhood as tempestuous and unstable as the sky above him. A childhood he’d spent right here in San Francisco.

When he cleared his head the best he could, he rose to get things over with. Being back in town for the next week was going to suck hard, but he knew of only one way to get through shit, and that was to plow straight ahead.

As far as command performances went, he could’ve tried a little harder to muster up some enthusiasm, but after ten years of being an island of one, he was out of practice at the whole family thing.

The French House at one p.m., the text had said. And, apparently, his presence was both needed and required. Funny, because once upon a time when Diego had desperately needed and required Rocco’s presence, he hadn’t gotten it.

Damn. And here he’d told himself that he was over the past.

Blog Tour & Review – Insatiable, Melanie Harlow

November 13, 2019 By

“Insatiable is absolute magic! Fabulous banter, volcanic level heat and a hero so sexy and swoon worthy he kicks all other book boyfriends off their pedestals.”

—Helena Hunting, New York Times bestselling author

Insatiable, an all-new “steamy and irresistible” friends to lovers romance from USA Today bestselling author Melanie Harlow is available now!

Insatiable AMAZON

I didn’t mean to see him naked–it was an accident.

It had to be, right?

Because Noah McCormick and I have never been anything more than friends. In all the years I’ve known him, he’s never once laid a finger on me. And even though he was a cute lifeguard at 16 and a hotter-than-hell sheriff’s deputy at 34, he’s always been that protective guy I could trust to keep his hands to himself. I never wanted to mess with that.

Until I walked in on him getting out of the shower and saw his hard, muscular body totally bare and dripping wet. At that moment I never wanted to mess with anything so badly in my entire life.

I should have covered my eyes. Said I was sorry. At the very least, I could have handed him a towel.

After all, I was only in town for a few days, and he was just doing me a favor by escorting me to my sister’s wedding. It wasn’t a real date.

But I didn’t apologize. And he didn’t cover up.

(Talk about a hot mess.)

After all those years of being just friends, suddenly we’re insatiable.

He’s made it clear he’s not interested in romance. Which is fine with me because

I’ve got a plane ticket back to my real life at the end of the week.

It’s all in fun…or is it?

Sandra's Review

5 out of 5 stars

Insatiable is the third book in the Cloverleigh Farms series by Melanie Harlow. It can be read as a standalone but I do recommend reading the previous books since they are amazing. They are tied together through the Sawyer sisters. Meg lives in DC so I didn’t know much about her until now. It was her turn to find love…
It all started when Noah saved her life at sixteen. And seventeen years later they were still the best of friends. Friends who lived thousands of miles apart. Friends were didn’t chat daily. Not even weekly, sometimes it was monthly or when one needed the other. It was the kind of friendship that was always there. It’s been three years since they were in the same town and now she was home for her sister’s wedding.
One week. That’s all the time they had. She was busy with her family but she wanted to spend time with him. And he wanted to spend time with her. As friends. Except something felt different from the moment they saw each other. They always thought the other was attractive but this was different. A need. A pull. Noah had to fight it. He didn’t want to hurt her. Didn’t want to ruin what they have. He didn’t want a girlfriend. He never wanted to get married or have children and she deserved a man who did. He was the man to protect her not hurt her. Then…it happened. A kiss. A touch. A shower scene out of a movie. One week. It’s all they had. Can they have their fun, a fling and go on with their lives? Back to the way it used to be with flirty remarks by text with a safe distance between them?
I loved Noah and Meg! They are a lot of fun with a twist of serious issues. I felt their warmth from the beginning. They made me laugh, swoon, and cry! Their inner dialogue? Oh my god…so good. The dirty birds these two. I just loved it all and can’t wait for the next sister to fall.
P.S Now I want a Twinkie!
Quotes:
“I’m stress eating Twinkies. But I also have margaritas,” I added in an effort to sound more adult.
“Twinkies and tequila. Classy.” I took a big swallow and set the glass down.
“I try.”
“Am I too picky?”
“You should be picky. There’s a lot of assholes out there.”
“Maybe I’m a terrible fuck.”
“Somehow I doubt that.” “But you can’t say for sure!”
“That’s true,” he said, laughing, “so maybe you should come home and let me take you for a test drive. Assess your steering and handling.”
That made me smile. “Very funny.”
He pressed close behind me and spoke low in my ear. His voice was deep and commanding. “You have the right to remain silent. Anything on my body can and will be used against you.”
“Oh, fuck,” I whispered.
“But feel free to scream if you want. No one will hear you.” (OH! I forget to mention he is a part of the K-9 unit.)

Books in the collection:

Loving Kalvinstandalone 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.

Saving Bradstandalone 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.

Seducing Kadenstandalone 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.

Forgiving Kevenstandalone 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.

 

Sandra's Review

LOVING KALVIN
[usr-5]

Loving Kalvin is the fourth book book in the Kennedy Boys series. You do not have to read the previous books in the series before you read this one but I do recommend it if you want the full story leading up to it. Plus they kicked ass. So there is that. If you did read the previous books then you know Kalvin and Lana’s relationship is a complicated one.

Kalvin and Lana have known each other since they were two years old. They formed an unbreakable bond since the day they met. They were best friends. They could be themselves around each other. Then high school started and things changed between them. They still cared but it was different. Kalvin hurt her. Lana turned around and hurt him. It hurt them. It hurt what could have been. What should have been. Now, it was time to heal. Hopefully, if Kalvin gets what he wants. What he needs. Her.

Lana doesn’t understand why Kalvin is here. She told him not to look for her. To stay away. It’s not only for her. It’s for him. She loves him but she doesn’t want the reminder of what she did. How much she hurt him. Is he here to ruin her in return? What she doesn’t understand is that he wants her back. To prove that they deserve a second chance. She can’t believe it. Why would he forgive her and will he again after what she has to say to him?

This series seriously hooks me in with every book. The stories are addicting! Kalvin and Lana’s story is much different than Ky and Faye’s. There isn’t as much family drama but there is drama. Just the perfect amount for these two. They might only be 17 and 18 years old but they are mature for their age. They both had to grow up fast for different reasons. I felt for them. I laughed with them. Cried with them. And was rooting for them. To forgive each other and themselves.

Overall…it’s a great addition to the series! The characters are well-developed. The drama sucks you in. The storylines are unique. I liked Kalvin before but I love him now. And Lana is his perfect match.

Quotes:

“You may think you still know me, but you don’t.”

No one does intense like Kalvin Kennedy.

“Dude, did you just growl? Like legit growl?”

💞 SAVING BRAD

4.5 out of 5 stars

Saving Brad is the fifth book in the Kennedy Brothers series. It is a standalone but if you want to get more background involving Brad then I recommend reading the previous books. Brad technically isn’t a Kennedy but he is Kyler Kennedy’s best friend and like a brother to him. The synopsis kicks ass so I will make this fast.

Rachel hates him but she wants him. Again. He gave her one hellava a ride eighteen months ago but she can’t go there. She is in America to start over. To concentrate on school. To stop drinking. To stop sleeping with random guys to numb her pain. She knows Brad would only make things worse since he is still in self-destructive mode. She knows she should stay away but she wants to help him even if he is being the biggest dickhead.

Brad wants to hate her but he can’t. She is too feisty and gorgeous to walk away from even if he knows it’s for the best. He doesn’t want to hurt her. He is in love with her best friend after-all. He wishes he wasn’t because it would make life so much easier. His life has been anything but easy over the last two years and he doesn’t want to complicate it anymore. But with Rachel back in the states he doesn’t know how it couldn’t be. He doesn’t go for seconds with any girl but with Rachel he wants to break his rule. Over and over again. Will he get his chance?

Brad and Rachel both have obstacles to conquer. They both have pasts that they don’t want to talk about. The both have been trying to numb their pains for the last few years with alcohol and sex. They understand one another. But can’t not fight when in the same room. It’s too much for them to admit how they really feel.

Overall…it’s crazy beautiful. It has twists. It has drama. It has triggers. It has heat. And it has love. I laughed, cringed, and was very close to crying. I thought it was an awesome addition to the series. You will get a sneak peek at what the next book is going to be about and omfg…I can’t wait!

Quotes:

“Look who came with,” Faye says to Rachel, wiggling her eyebrows as she stares at me.
I jerk my chin up, shoving my hands in my pockets. “Red.”
Her lips purse before speaking. “Dickhead.”

“I can’t believe you just stomped your foot. You’re really indulging your inner child tonight.” “Shut. Up. Dickhead.”

“Poor baby,” she teases, pinching my cheek. “Can’t handle a little rough play.”

💞 SEDUCING KADEN
5 out of 5 stars

Seducing Kaden is the sixth book in the Kennedy Boys series. You can read it as a standalone but I do recommend reading the series to get caught up with The Kennedys! I have been following the series since the very beginning and each time I open one of the books, I am sucked in. They just keep getting better and better. This one is darker than the others and since I crave a darker reads once in awhile, I was excited.

Kaden wanted her from the moment he saw her. Even at the age of eighteen he knew it was love at first sight. He also knew she was off-limits. She was married. He wasn’t happy about that but after sending more time with her, he knew she was miserable in the marriage. Over the years, he heard the rumors around campus about who she was married to. He was a dangerous man who would kill if he ever found out about the thoughts that went through Kaden’s mind on a daily basis. The love between his wife and himself.

Eva tried to keep Kaden at a distance. She didn’t want him to be hurt because of their actions. Years of misery passed. Kaden was the only light she had. She had to keep that light bright while staying in the dark. In the distance from the only one she loved. The only man who made her want more. Want the fairytale that she dreamed of as a child. Her husband was her nightmare. One that she couldn’t escape.

Ok…I can’t really say anymore than that. I will say that I loved this book! It is one of my favorites from the series for a few reasons. One, I have been waiting for Kaden’s story. It has been a mystery throughout the series. Two, it’s darker. More dangerous. And three, it has a second chance feel to it and I do love my second chance romances.

Overall…I loved everything about it. The writing. The characters. The story. The heat. The love. The danger. The family. I am so looking forward to next book. Oh man, it’s going to be good.

Quotes:

“I wish I could talk to you, Kaden, but the words I want to say can never leave these lips, and there’s no way I want to drag you into my shit.”

“Just when I think you can’t get any more perfect, you go and say something like that.”

“Good to see you still have a healthy ego.”
He shrugs. “You call it ego. I call it confidence.”

💞 FORGIVING KEVEN
5 out of 5 stars

Forgiving Keven is the seventh book in the totally addictive Kennedy Boys series by Siobhan Davis. Each book can be read as standalone but I do recommend reading the series. It’s one of my favorites! The drama. The family. The heat. The emotion. The twists. It has it all. I have been following the series from the beginning and have loved every book.

Keven Kennedy is in deep shit. So deep that the FBI have him by the balls. But when he finds out what they need from him, he signs on the dotted line. He would do anything to see his high school sweetheart again even if it’s just to protect her. He knew she wouldn’t be happy to see him after years apart. He broke her heart their senior year of high school but he is determined to keep her safe. Even for herself.

Cheryl can’t believe he is here. Keven. Her first love. The one she wishes she could forget. They were supposed to have it all. Married with two-point-five kids and loving each other until the end of time. That was until he broke her heart. Now, years later she was engaged to a wonderful man who has his own law practice. A man who would give her anything. She was happy. So she thought…

I don’t want to spoil anything so I will leave it at that. But, I will say how much I loved Keven and Cheryl’s story. I had been waiting for it and it was so worth the wait. It’s full of suspense, heat, emotions, and twists. Siobhan is a Queen when it comes to the twists. It was awesome catching up with the Kennedy Boys and their ladies. They all kick ass and I can’t wait to see them again in the next book!

Quotes:

Looking into his pale blue eyes is like traveling back in time. To a moment when he was my everything and I believed I was that to him too.

“I could kiss you right now, and you’d let me,” he whispers. I clamp my lips tight, to hold back my moan. “But I won’t do that to you.”

“Wow, I didn’t think it was possible, but your ego is even bigger than it was back in high school.”

** I voluntarily reviewed this book for an advanced copy.

Excerpt from Loving Kalvin (Kennedy Boys #4)

 

LANA

I change the bed, while Kal clears away the dirty clothes and the empty boxes. Then we get changed—sleep shorts and a tank for me and track shorts for Kal—and snuggle up in bed, watching a movie on his laptop. My head is resting on his bare chest, testing my willpower to the limit. Kal is all sharp angles, and defined muscles, and my hands start wandering without permission.

“Are you feeling me up?” I can hear the amusement in his voice.

No point denying it. Not when my fingers are currently exploring every dip and curve of his abs. “Yeah. Got a problem with it?”

He laughs lightly. “Hell no. Don’t stop.” His arm is firm around my waist, and, with his other hand, he plays with my hair. “Lana,” he whispers.

“Yeah,” I whisper back, looking up at him.

“I love you.”

Tears well in my eyes. “I love you too.”

I want this to be real. So, so much.

I wish there was no other secret between us.

No risk of this all falling apart.

Not when it feels so exquisite. So perfect. So right.

We’re on borrowed time and I’m clinging to it like a drowning woman clinging to a life belt.

Release Day & Reviews – Trying to Score, Kendall Ryan

TRYING TO SCORE

By Kendall Ryan

Release Day: November 12, 2019

 

 

About the Book

 

Teddy King excels at many things. Playing hockey. Check. Scoring on and off the ice. Check. Being stupidly attractive … Double check.

 

Despite his demanding schedule, he still finds time to annoy me. I knew him way back when. Before he was the guy everyone wanted a piece of, he was just a rebellious college co-ed and one of my more energetic study partners.

 

But secrets have a way of getting out, and a steamy encounter from our college days (that we probably shouldn’t have filmed) is about to cause a major scandal. Unless we can work together to stop it.

 

Teddy’s no stranger to hard work … but the thing he wants most?

 

Is me.

 

Note: This high-heat standalone is chock-full of scorching banter and steamy good times. He’s a testosterone-dripping hockey player who wants a second chance. She’s a tough as nails attorney intent on making partner. Frienemies to lovers. No cliffhanger. Enjoy!

 

Your favorite hot jocks are back with an all new stand-alone novel. If you like sexy, confident men who know how to handle a stick (on and off the ice), and smart women who are strong enough to keep all those big egos in check, this series is perfect for you!

Kara's Review

5 out of 5 stars

Trying to Score is the third book in the Hot Jocks series by the talented Kendall Ryan. I have read almost all of Kendall’s books and I can safely say I’m loving these hockey jocks more than any of her other men! There’s just something about their funny wit, sexiness and stick handling abilities that just gets me! We’ve met both Teddy and Sara in the previous books and I’ve been looking forward to their story! They had a brief fling in college and made a sex tape. Now Teddy’s being threatened with it being released into the wild. The best idea he’s ever heard? Pretend to be a real couple so if it does come out, it won’t look like a crazy drunken mistake. Teddy is all for it! He’s had a thing for Sara for years and now’s his chance. They are finally both single and he’s not letting this opportunity pass him by. Sara knows it’s the right thing to do, be Teddy’s fake girlfriend, but she’s not upset about it at all. They have crazy chemistry, but they also laugh together, eat together and just really enjoy each other’s company. Can this fake relationship become real? I loved this story! What I loved most is that Teddy was all in. He wanted a girlfriend. He likes staying home and cooking and snuggling and eating ice cream. He’s not afraid of commitment and the word forever. Sara loves her career, but she knows being with Teddy is what she wants for her future. Teddy is so sexy with his big body and his sweet words. Sara is smart, beautiful and sassy! Together their banter is hilarious, their connection real and I loved every minute of it!

 

I pop off the lid off and scoop up a spoonful, then slide it between my lips. It’s the perfect amount of sweet with just a touch of salty. Kind of like Teddy.

I guess I like my men the way I like my ice cream. In bed, and all to myself.

 

Sandra's Review

5 out of 5 stars

Trying to Score is the third book in the Hot Jocks series by Kendall Ryan. Each book can be read as standalone but I do recommend reading them all since they just keep getting better and better. I do believe this might just be my favorite series by Kendall. I have enjoyed both Teddy and Sara in the previous books so it was exciting that they would be getting a book together!
Seven years ago a couple of college coeds decide it would be fun to make a sex tape. These coeds are now professionals in the world of hockey and law. These professionals have kept that night and every other night of their casual college hookups from their friends and now the world might know what an amazing ass Teddy really has if his co-star, friend, and Lawyer Sara Dawson can’t get the hacker to go away.
There is only one way to get this scandal to be less scandalous if the tape gets out. To work together. To act like a couple. To show the world that if it is leaked that it wasn’t just a sinful night but part of their love story. Easy, right? No! Not easy. Especially when their chemistry has never gone away over the years. It is still thick but with both of them in demanding positions it would never work. It is what it is. Or is it?
Will their asses be on display for the world to see? Will it ruin them if it gets out? Sara is up for partner in her firm. Teddy is working on a hockey deal.
Omg!! These two are hawt!! Like I said the series just keeps getting better and better. I love all this team and their strong partners in crime and love. Teddy and Sara are both adorable and sinfully sexy. I love their banter. Their connection. Their passion. I can’t wait for the next book! I have a feeling it’s going to be a wild ride.
Quotes: 
As he walks my way, I can’t resist doing a once-over of his sculpted frame. I won’t lie, he’s hotter than sin, all of his muscles fully on display in that well-fitted tux. I mentally high-five College Sara for her good taste in sex partners.
“You are absolutely incredible, Sara Dawson. That’s what.”
“How will all this work?”
“Well, first I’m going to put my penis inside your—”
“Oh my God!” She stops me with a laugh, holding up one hand.

Release Day & Review – It’s in His Christmas Wish, Shelly Alexander 

November 12, 2019 By

Now Live, It’s in his Christmas Wish by Author Shelly Alexander

HOST - IT'S IN HIS CHRISTMAS WISH

For one last time visit, Red River Valley in this wonderful holiday romance that has as much heart as it does heat.
OUT NOW!
KindleUnlimited subscribers read FREE
5 out of 5 stars
It’s in His Christmas Wish is the seventh and final book in the Red River Valley series. It can be read as standalone as well as the previous books. I started the series with book three. I will get to the first two one day. The synopsis explains it perfectly so I will make this fast.
Kimberly wants to give children their Christmas wishes with the help of the town which would cut the decoration budget. It’s not that Ross doesn’t want children to have a present to unwrap but he wants them to have the experience of Christmas lights. At the same time he would fulfill his sister’s wish before she passed. To keep Christmas alive.
Ross and Kimberly have been friends for years. A few months ago it got to be too much for Kimberly. He felt too close. She hasn’t told anyone about her childhood except her best friend and lawyer partner. Ross hasn’t talked about his sister since his parents were still grieving. Now, these two have to work together to make this Christmas everything the town wants and needs. And to do that, they need to open up to each other in ways they didn’t think possible.
I thought this was a cute, flirty, fun, and sassy story. There is also added heat. It’s kind of a friends to lovers romance with a twist of enemies to lovers in there. It was a great way to end this awesome series of small town couples.
Quotes:
“Kimberly, why are you doing this. I’ll go to war with every person in this town to protect Christmas.”
“You’re one of those holiday freaks who lives for Christmas all year long, aren’t you?”
“Can you wear a red cape with a hood for me one night?” She cocked her head to one side. “Ah, so the truth comes out about Red River’s most famous mechanic, who seems perfect and above reproach in public. In private, you have a Little Red Riding Hood fantasy.”
it's in his christmas wish OUT NOW

Return to Red River–a beautiful mountain town in the southern Rockies, where the nights are cool and the romance is hot–one last time in this wonderful holiday romance that has as much heart as it does heat.

Maybe some wishes aren’t meant to come true.

Christmas is a hot button for Kimberly Perez, and not in a good way. Having grown up in the foster system, she’s as frugal as she is smart and can’t abide the materialism of the holidays. In an effort to use precious funds to help children in need instead of wasting money on meaningless commercialism, she pitches a new city ordinance to Red River’s town council that would cut all holiday decorations and festivities from the budget.

Ross Armstrong is determined to honor his late sister’s memory by continuing her love of all things Christmas in Red River. But to do so, he’s got to block the passing of a silly new law—and the person behind it—which would essentially ban Christmas altogether.

When their disagreement pits them against each other at a public town council meeting and splits Red River in half, the council chairperson forces them to work together on a new Red River holiday tradition—the Wishing Tree. Can they work together in the true spirit of the holidays, not only to reunite the town they love but to also cultivate the burgeoning feelings they have for each other. Or will their differences turn them into enemies and divide Red River forever?

A SPECIAL NOTE TO SHELLY’S READERS

Hello, my lovelies. As this–my first published series–comes to a close, I’m both excited to start new books set in a different location and sad that the wonderfully quirky characters who make up the heart of Red River will no longer be my focus when I sit down to write every day. Thank you for following this series from start to finish. It’s been a fantastic journey, and just like the characters in the books, there has been ups and there has been downs. But you all have stayed with me every step of the way, and for that I am eternally grateful. So, enjoy Ross and Kimberly’s heartwarming holiday story.

Kara's Review

5 out of 5 stars

Special Delivery is Lauren Blakely’s first holiday romance. Two of my favorite things: Lauren Blakely and Christmas! Lauren’s books always bring a smile to my face! Special Delivery is fun, flirty, sexy and a novella that feels like so much more. Quinn is planning her brother Josh’s company holiday party with his sexy business party. Easy, right? Not exactly! Vaughn is a tall drink of sexy water and she has to try to resist him. It’s not going to be easy. Vaughn loves redheads and he didn’t think his business partner’s sister was going to be so pretty. And funny and sweet. Uh oh! She’s off limits, right? But while they are party planning they are getting to know each other. Flirting, touching and laughing together. It’s obvious they are attracted to each other and they can’t ignore the chemistry. A perfectly placed Mistletoe sets the sparks on fire and they can’t deny they are falling for each other. They are both on a relationship hiatus, he’s moving soon and he’s still her brother’s business partner. But does any of that matter when it comes to Christmas, chemistry and love? This story is so fantastic. It’s filled with cheer, sexiness, fun and love. I think Lauren needs to write more holiday romances!

 

P.S. I’m with Vaughn on the egg nog thing!

 

“I want you.” Then she adds two more to make it even more perfect. “So much.”

I groan and wrap her in my arms. “Spoiler alert— the feeling is mutual.”

 

And she likes Christmas. Man down. Man officially down.

 

Deck the halls with my greatest temptation, and fuck me sideways with a nutcracker.

Fa-la-la-la-la.

 

Sandra's Review

5 out of 5 stars

Oh, my Christmas that was adorable and naughty!!! I just finished up Overnight Service last night and there was a tease to Vaughn and Quinn’s story so I had to start right away.
Vaughn and Quinn were both on romance diet. No hookups. No dating. No romance. It had been easy over the last year then their eyes met and it was over. They wanted a taste. A cheat day. Except this was just one dinner to discuss an upcoming Christmas company party. With Vaughn’s new business partner’s little sister. He could resist one dinner especially with the brother sitting in. Well…it seems Josh hates parties and planning so now it was up to them. Oh, they were so screwed.
Can two Christmas-lovers spend their nights planning an extravaganza without landing themselves on the naughty list?
Of course not!!! This is a Lauren Blakely book! Many of her characters are on the extra-naughty list. I loved every minute of this chemistry filled story. It’s actually one of my favorite novellas. Ever. It gave me all the feels. Vaughn and Quinn are so sweet, fun, and passionate. It’s hard to make a reader cry in such a small amount of words but Lauren has done it again!
P.S Spoiler Alert — You are going to love it!!
Quotes:
“You don’t really have an ugly Christmas sweater collection, do you?”
“Maybe I do. Maybe I don’t. Maybe you need to tell me why you deserved coal in your stocking.”
For a few delicious seconds, he dives in, kissing with intent, leaving me with the promise of how his touch might be—thorough and attentive enough to make my toes curl.
“Merry Christmas to me, and it’s not even Thanksgiving,” he says, his voice smoky.

Blurb:
All I want for the holidays is the willpower to resist my brother’s sexy, charming, easy-on-the-eyes new business partner.

Instead, I’m stuck planning all the holiday parties with the one guy who makes me want to break my dating diet.

Who thought that was a good idea?

Oh, me. Yep, brilliant, strategic me who raised her hand and said yes I’d love to hang mistletoe with that hot former sports star. (Note to self: Mistletoe leads to toe-curling, knee-weakening kisses.)

And I’d love to get snowed in with the one guy I shouldn’t fall for. (Addendum to the note to self: You know exactly where eight inches of snow leads to. Ahem, eight inches.)

As long as I can make it through the holidays I’ll be on my merry way, fa la la la la. But the holidays have a surprise for me.
