Cover Reveal – Sure Shot, Sarina Bowen 

April 2, 2020 By

A new stand-alone hockey romance from USA Today bestseller Sarina Bowen.


On the eve of her thirtieth birthday, successful sports agent Bess Beringer is ready to make some changes. Armed with a five-year plan—indexed and color coded—she’ll tackle a few goals in her personal life.


A big, tall, ripped hunk of hockey player who’s just been traded to the Brooklyn Bruisers is not a part of that five year plan. Mark “Tank” Tankiewicz has a lot of baggage. He’s a ride-or-die loner. He’s on the rebound. He’s also the sexiest thing on two legs, and for some crazy reason it’s Bess that he wants.


She knows better. But then she falls stupid in love with him anyway. And for a while it seems like maybe he’ll do the same.


Until she asks him for the one thing he can never give her…

I fell in love with Sydney Hastings when I was ten years old.

Author: TM Smith
Genre: M/M Romance
Release Date: April 1, 2020
I don’t know how to explain it—I just woke up one day and there he was. And he became my everything.
All it took was one wrong choice, a decision made in haste, to destroy Chris’s future.
It’s a mistake that he can’t take back or make right, one that cost another person their life. Adrift, alone, and uncertain of his future, Chris moves to New York. He quickly learns that the bright lights of the big city don’t offer the absolution he seeks. A fortuitous encounter moves him in the right direction. But is he willing to take the chance he’s offered to make a fresh start?
After catching his boyfriend cheating, again, Linc is convinced that he’ll never find love.
Linc has always been honest about who he is and what he prefers. He’s a bisexual gay porn star that will do just about anything with anyone, on camera that is, so he can write his own ticket in a versatility-charged industry. It’s not his sexuality that interferes with his personal life; it’s his inability to trust.
Can the possibility of a happy ever after prove to be enough of a reason for these two men to let their guard down and take a second chance on love?
NOTE This story was previously published as Gay for Pay, All Cocks Stories book 1. It has been edited and reworked with a lot of new content added to the story.

From New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Carly Phillips comes a new story in her Sexy series…

Learning curves have never been so off-limits.

Professor Shane Warden is on the verge of getting tenure. He never thought he’d see the day, after a false accusation from a student years ago that nearly destroyed his career, and decimated his ability to trust. But the moment he walks into class and lays eyes on the seductive blonde with legs that go on forever and lips he immediately wants to kiss, he knows he’s in trouble.

This time for real.

Single mom Amber Davis is finally living her dream of going back to college. In the ten years since she dropped out to have a baby–and recover from his father’s death–it’s been the goal that always felt just out of reach. Until now. But one look at her hot, sexy professor, and Amber is head over heels in lust. It doesn’t take long before their attraction blazes out of control.

Neither of them can afford a forbidden affair.
Yet it’s the one thing they are powerless to stop.

It will only take one hint of a rumor to destroy everything they’ve worked so hard to achieve… and in this case the rumors are true.

**For fans of Carly’s Sexy Series, Sexy Love is book four in that series.**

**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.**

Sandra's Review

5 out of 5 stars

Sexy Love is a novella in the Sexy Series by Carly Phillips. It can be read as a complete standalone and I can say that since that’s exactly how I read it.
Amber is a single mom looking for a fresh start. Moving to Connecticut and going back to college was not going to be easy but she was determined to make her and her son’s life better. What she didn’t expect was to run into, literally a man who made her weak in the knees with one look. Finding love or even lust was way off her radar until him. The chemistry was undeniable but she couldn’t go there and left him with a goodbye. Until she walks into his classroom.
Shane was up for tenure. He was up to his neck in research. He couldn’t afford a distraction. Especially a forbidden distraction. But damn…he wanted her. He felt that connection so it was hard to stay away from her. He wanted to know more about her. Who she was. She wasn’t some eighteen year old student. She was his age with a child. But still, she was a student and he was her professor, for the summer. Can they see where it could go come August?
This book is a novella but it has a lot of story to it. It’s a fun and sexy read and it makes me want to go back and read the rest of the books!
“We’ll see if you can handle the work.”
She tipped her head to the side, taking a step closer to him. So close he inhaled her citrusy scent and his cock grew hard.
“Just like we’ll see if you can handle having me in your class.”
“I don’t think I’m imagining the chemistry between us,” she said. “But that Miss Davis comment explains everything. Student-teacher. Forbidden. Got it.” She lifted her backpack higher on her back. “I’ll see you on Wednesday, Professor.”
“Hold on, beautiful.”

March 31, 2020 By

Code Name: Hacker (Jameson Force Security, Book #4)
Sawyer Bennett
Release Date: March 31, 2020


I’m not the same Bebe Grimshaw I was years ago. The woman I was spent years behind the bars of the highest security women’s prison in the nation, my punishment for hacking nuclear codes as part of a crime syndicate I’d gotten in way too deep with. The woman I am today doesn’t regret what I did, or the fact that I got caught, but I am remorseful for the years I lost with my son, Aaron. Released from my sentence early thanks to Kynan McGrath, I joined his team at Jameson Force Security and now put my skills to use helping people.

I’m just trying to get back a piece of what I lost, focusing solely on raising Aaron and my work at Jameson. As long as I have my son and my career, I’m content. But life has a funny way of letting you know exactly what you need, and when a devastatingly handsome stranger named Griffin befriends Aaron at the park, I have to consider I might be missing something. A part of me that was locked away long ago reawakens, and I find myself looking at Griff in a way I’ve not looked at a man in more than a decade.

Just when I think things are starting to look up, my world is turned upside down. Turns out that meeting wasn’t an accident, and things aren’t going my way at all.

Griffin Moore is the man sent here to kill me.

Sandra's Review

5 out of 5 stars

Code Name: Hacker is the fourth book in the Jameson Force Security series by the talented Sawyer Bennett. You can read each book as standalone but I do recommend reading the series since each one kicks ass. I have been looking forward to Bebe’s story and it was so worth the wait.
Bebe’s life hasn’t been easy. She was in prison for seven years for hacking into the government at the same time as saving it. It took her away from her son but it was worth it since it saved his life and now she was out early thanks to Kynan and the Jameson Group. Her skills were needed and she was now free for the most part. The man who she kept from going to prison was still out there and apparently wanted her dead.
Griffin had one job. To kill Brianna Belle Grimshaw. He didn’t know why his boss wanted her dead but that wasn’t his problem. It was supposed to be an easy job. In and out. That was until he saw her. And then found his way in…her son.
I can’t really get into the story without spoiling it but I will say that I loved it. It’s full of action, heat, sweetness, and laughs. I just enjoy this own crew of misfits.
“That’s a beautiful laugh.” I sober instantly. “Are you flirting with me?”
“Apparently very poorly if you have to ask,” he replies with a wink.
I feel like springtime… like I’m waking up to a new dawn with endless possibilities.

Release a Day Blitz, 5 Heart Reviews, Excerpt & *Giveaway*- Dirty Hookup, Mira Lyn Kelly

March 31, 2020 By


Title: Dirty Hookup
A Slayers Hockey Series Novel
Author: Mira Lyn Kelly
Genre: Hockey Romance
Release Date: March 31, 2020


One look and I
know… this chick hates me.

I should walk away, find some puck bunny to gleefully sit on my lap and tell me
what a big, hot, hockey stud I am–totally true, BTW. But there’s just
something about this feisty redhead I can’t let go. She’s got an edge to her
that’s sexy as hell and a smart mouth that’s been tying me up since the night I
met her.
She tells me to forget it, we’re not happening. But this isn’t the kind of
woman a guy ever forgets. Especially when the air starts to sizzle and pop
every time we get within ten feet of each other. She’s in my head and under my
skin, and all I can think about is the way she looked at me that one time. Like
she already knew how it could be between us.

I’m not the kind of guy a girl like her takes home… But maybe I want to be.

5 out of 5 stars

Dirty Hookup is the second book in the Slayers Hockey series by Mira Lyn Kelly. You can read it as standalone but I do recommend reading Dirty Secret since it’s full of banter, fun, and sexy times. And if you read it then you will remember George and Quinn and how much she hated him. It’s on now…
Quinn knew from the moment he saw her, he wanted her. And not just because of her killer body but her sharp tongue and overall badass-ness. He didn’t know what he did to make this woman hate him but he was determined to find out. It could take a day, a week, a year but he knew he would do it. He never walked away from a challenge and that’s exactly what George was. He might have been a player on and off the ice but for her? He wanted to show her who he really was and that right there just might be why he catches her watching him. He is a puzzle to her and he wants her to complete every last piece.
George hates him. She has her reasons and that’s all anyone needs to know. And for some reason even after months of death glares and a snarky attitude, he won’t just go away. She tries to ignore him but that devilish smile and arm porn gets her every time and he knows it. She really does hate the way her body reacts to him. She just doesn’t get it. Maybe it was time for him to get a taste of his own medicine.
That’s all I can really say without spoiling the book. I will say that I love them both. Quinn is more than a hot hockey player who knows how to use his stick and use it well. He is sweet, funny, and flirty. George is like I said, a badass. She plays hockey and runs a bike shop and always puts her brothers in check. She is smart, witty, and sweet too. Together, their banter is full of fun, flirt, and some hate thrown in.
Overall…it’s a fun, sexy, and sweet read. It was awesome catching up with Vaughn and Natalie and some of the team. Players I hope get books in the future.
Vaughn Vassar is in the lead, followed by Doug Shore and stupid sexy-haired Quinn O’Brian, who’s probably only bringing up the rear because he stopped to get a back-alley blowjob from some bunny on his way in.
God, I hate him.
“Come on, Georgie. Tell me I’m your hero.”
“O’Brian, are you going to do this or not? Show me what you’ve got.”

Dirty Hookup is the second book in the Slayers Hockey series by the talented Mira Lyn Kelly. I’ve only recently discovered Mira (*hangs head in shame*) and I just have to say what an incredible writer she is. I’m a huge fan of hockey romances and Mira gives us all the things we want in a sports romance. Lust, humor, fun, sexiness and actual hockey! Quinn has always been a playboy, but he’s not actually a bad guy. When he first sees George it’s all stars and crazy thoughts about what a special moment it is until she opens her mouth and crushes his dreams. She really hates him. He’s not one to back down from a challenge so he’s going to work even harder to get George to see he’s not the man she thinks he is. He has his work cut out for him! George hates him. But her body won’t stop reacting to his. There’s a pull she wants to deny, but she just can’t. How is it possible to want someone so much when you can’t stand them? Will Quinn be able to get through George’s walls and find out why? Oh man! I loved this story! The sexiness, the push and the pull, the laughs! Quinn is so sweet and hot and sexy and George is hilarious and strong and independent. I love how she put her brothers in their place and is comfortable with who she is. Overall, I loved every word! I laughed a lot, shed a tear, got mad, got hot and bothered and smiled! Already looking forward to the next one!


Stupid eyes.

Stupid shoulders and muscles-everywhere body.

Stupid sandy blond hair standing up like some foolish girl had just had her hands in it for the last hour.


God, I hate him.

I hate how broad his shoulders are and how his mouth seems to be hooked in this perpetual half smile, like he’s always ready to laugh.

“God, I hate you,” she mutters, clear enough for me to hear, but probably not the rest of the table.

“You sure?” I ask, sitting back. “Because it kind of seems like you might like me. Just a little.”

But so we’re clear… this challenge? George, I’m coming for you. And sooner or later, you’re going like me. Just a little.”


Maybe it’s time I let the physical connection do some of the heavy lifting here. Instead of shutting that shit down because I’m trying to make sure she knows I’m interested in her and not just some dirty hookup.



Ducking around a corner, I press my back to the wall and suck one shaky breath after another
until the spots behind my eyes finally clear, along with any wayward thoughts
about a third Slayers hockey player needing a bed in the ER.
I can’t believe it. After all these years.
Quinn O’Brian.
Two feet in front of me. Giving me that same smile. The one that put my belly into free fall the
first time I saw it. Left me breathless. And then less than a day later, left me humiliated. Devastated. Working up fantasies about the wrath I’d rain down on him if I ever saw him again.
So much for that badassery. My knees barely held me when I looked up to find those stupid sea-green eyes twinkling back at me like some Disney hero come to life.
Stupid eyes.
Stupid shoulders and
muscles-everywhere body.
Stupid sandy blond
hair standing up like some foolish girl just had her hands in it for the last hour.
And that introduction. Blowing out a breath, I shake my head. He didn’t even
recognize me. Though why I ever thought he might is beyond me. Six years later
and I’m still reading more into that night than there ever was. More into those
soul-deep stares and slow touches. More into those tender words that turned out
to be total lies.

Blog Tour & Reviews – Need for Speed,Ella Frank & Brooke Blaine

March 30, 2020 By

With passion this intense, the question remains:

Who’s gonna come out on top?

Need for Speed, the highly anticipated second installment of the edge-of-your-seat contemporary MM The Elite Series from USA Today bestselling authors Ella Frank and Brooke Blaine is available now!

Need for Speed AMAZON

Need for Speed is the continuation of Solo and Panther’s story and should only be read after book one, Danger Zone.

They train to serve their country.

They strive to be the best.

But only a select few can be…

The Elite

* * *



Reckless, arrogant, and bold, Solo is as known in the U.S. Navy for his bad-boy reputation as he is for his skills as a fighter pilot. It’s a surprise to his peers, then, when he’s chosen to train and compete at the most prestigious naval aviation academy in the world.


  1. Kick everyone’s ass.
  2. Do whatever it takes to win.
  3. Do your best to distract the competition.
  4. Especially when that competition is a gorgeous blue-eyed perfectionist who makes your blood run hot.

* * *



Disciplined, smart, and confident, Panther can’t afford not to play by the rules. As the son of a top Navy commander, all eyes are on him, and being anything less than number one is unacceptable.


  1. Keep it safe in the air.
  2. Prove you’re more than Commander Hughes’s son.
  3. No distractions. Stay focused.
  4. Don’t fall for your competition—especially not the rebellious heartbreaker with lips made for sinning.

In the heat of the hot California sun, tempers flare and desires ignite as Solo and Panther try to resist their attraction while fighting to be number one.

With passion this intense, the question remains:

Who’s gonna come out on top?

5 out of 5 stars

Need for Speed is the second book in the The Elite series by one of my favorite duos, Ella Frank & Brooke Blaine. It can NOT be read as a standalone, you must read Danger Zone first. I don’t want to spoil anything! I mean, the synopsis is even the same from book one.
Two men. Two fighter pilots. Two different sets of rules. One unexpected turn.
Panther and Solo are unmatched on paper but these two are on fire when they are in the same room. They might be getting to know each other better but that doesn’t mean the competition is over. There could only be one man on top and the fight in them is fierce. But what happens when the unexpected happens? Will it pull them apart or bring them together?
Damn…I am loving this series. Hard. It just keeps getting better and better. And the cliffhangers? Epic! Thank God, Ella and Brooke are releasing each book a month apart. I can’t wait to read the ending to their story and hope to see them again after it. There are so many hotties in this crew and I want more. Always when it comes to these authors.
“Look at you, you little flirt. Trying to break the rules, are we?”
I laughed and shook my head. “That’s not exactly what I meant.”
“So you’re saying you’re not thinking of me naked…”
“Can’t blame you if you were. I mean, if it helps, I’ll lose the pants. Shirt or pants? Your choice.”
“You’re not looking pissed off enough. Pretend I just said something horrible.”
“That’s ridiculous.” “Your mom’s ridiculous.”
I rolled my eyes. “What are you, ten?”
“Don’t you know by now? I’m the luckiest motherfucker around.”
5 out of 5 stars

Need for Speed is the second book in The Elite series by one of my favorite writing duos, Ella Frank and Brooke Blaine. Need for Speed picks up where Danger Zone left off and it can not be read as a standalone. Panther and Solo are getting closer and closer as the competition heats up. They’re fighting for the top spot while trying to fight their feelings for each other. Panther figures out some important things about his family and his life and Solo opens up more about his life. I am loving these two men. They are not only sexy as sin, but funny and a little sweet. I love how they start opening up to each other and I love their confidence. Thank God we don’t have to wait too long to see how it all plays out!


“I have to say, I kind of like being the only person to get this kind of reaction out of you.”

“And what kind of reaction is that?

“Hmm…you look a little dazed and confused, lieutenant.”

“That’s an apt description. Throw in ‘hard as a rock’ and you basically have me in a nutshell.”


“Maybe after this we could go back to your place and you could hate me some more.”

“Jesus. That mouth of yours.”

“Yeah? Wanna fuck it shut?”

Release Blitz & Review – The Other Guy, Jennifer Van Wyk

March 29, 2020 By

Title: The Other Guy: A Textdoor Neighbor Romance
Author: Jennifer Van Wyk
Genre: Contemporary Romance, Small Town Romance

I’m The Other Guy.

No, it’s not what you’re thinking so calm down. And yes, I just dared to say the words “calm down”.

He’s the guy your mama warned you about.

I just so happened to be his number neighbor.

Yeah, you read that right.

I’m the Textdoor Neighbor to the guy having one night stands with seemingly the entire town.

And I’m the lucky one who gets to “break up” with his not so lucky conquests.

Turns out, breaking up with most of them wasn’t as hard as I’d expected it to be.

Until she came along.

I was content living my boring life, running a boxing gym and going home to an empty house.

She made me realize that maybe being content isn’t enough.

I’m Jack Cole.

And this is the story about how I became… the other guy.

Kara's Review

5 out of 5 stars

The Other Guy is Jennifer Van Wyk’s newest laugh out loud, swoony romance. It can be read as a standalone, but I suggest you read the connected books since they are really great! It’s not a secret that James is my favorite hero of Jennifer’s. So I was extra excited to see his son, Jack, get a story! Jack is a good guy. Followed in James’ footsteps and went to culinary school, but opened a boxing gym instead. He teaches self defense classes and loves his job. But his life has gotten a little boring and he’s become best friends with his couch. His only source of entertainment lately is being the recipient of wrong number texts. Some guy running around having one night stands gave out his number instead. So he’s getting random text messages and even though he eventually tells them he’s not the man, he does chat for a few minutes with them. He just wants to let them down gently. He can’t take the texts anymore and he needs to get out of his house. Then he meets spitfire, Sierra. She’s a breath of fresh air, a little crazy and just fun. He needs some fun in his life. Sierra is visiting her uncle and doesn’t expect to meet Jack and have a connection with him. She’s living with someone, but it’s not the best situation. She just needs to realize it’s time to cut her losses. Is Jack the man she really wants to be with? As soon as Sierra becomes single, Jack doesn’t want to waste any more time. He wants Sierra and he’s willing to wait until she’s ready. Will the other guy actually become the one? This was a fun, sexy story! I loved Jack as a teenager and I’m so glad he turned out to be a great man! Sierra is crazy and hilarious! I also loved seeing James and the whole gang again!


I don’t take the time to turn on light switches and neither does Sierra. Instead, we fly down the hallway, dropping our coats along the way. I push through my bedroom door, the knob hitting the wall with a loud thwack but it could punch a hole in my sheetrock for all I care. I can fix it later. Right now I have better things to worry about. She flips on the light as she follows and murmurs, “I wanna see.”

“Good. Because I plan on staring at you for a while.”

“A while?”


“Oh my,” she breathes and starts stripping off her clothes. I stop her, wanting to do it myself but she bats my hands away, ripping her cardigan off and tossing it behind her. She shakes her head, her long dark hair swishing around her. “You do you. I’ll do me. This time. I don’t have the patience to wait longer.”

I grin and whip my shirt off as she undoes the button on her jeans, watching in amusement as she tries to simultaneously remove her shoes and skintight pants at the same time. She falls on the floor with a thud but it doesn’t stop her mission. She quickly unzips the side of her boots, kicks them off then wiggles out of her jeans while I finish undressing as well.

She works off her tank top and is standing before me, chest heaving in only a bra and underwear. There’s nothing particularly sexy about them. A black cotton bra and pink panties with black polka dots. For some reason, the simple combo does things to me. Way more than if she were in some skimpy lingerie that didn’t match who she is. I like the fact that top to toe, Sierra is who she is and she doesn’t feel the need to change that in front of me.

“You’re gorgeous.”

“You’ve seen me in less,” she reminds me.

“Yeah, but that was different.”

“How so?” she asks, walking to me. She lays soft hands on the bare skin of my waist and I swear I feel a zip of electricity shoot up my spine.

She presses her lips to my chest and I let my forefingers slide under her bra straps. “Because then, we were friends.”

“We aren’t friends now?”

I can tell she’s both teasing and nervous when she asks. She wants me to admit to liking her more than friends just like I want to admit it.

“I’m not a one and done guy, Sierra. This? It’s real for me.”
