Release Boost & Review – On the Edge, K. Bromberg

January 25, 2024 | Posted in Promo | By

 

 

On The Edge by K. Bromberg is now live! 

 

A spicy, only-one-bed, Formula 1 romance from New York Times bestselling author, K. Bromberg.

 

Surely this can’t be the only solution to overhaul my tarnished rep— faking a romance with the good girl intern?

 

But that’s what my agent says. Just a few months of taming my ways—of shedding Formula 1’s party boy image—will land me a lifetime branding deal. One I desperately need.

 

The key condition?

 

Pretend I’m madly in love with my new girlfriend. The quiet wallflower who I figured wouldn’t put me in my place. Yeah. This girl is anything but that.

 

Maddix Hart is defiant and intelligent. Loyal and real. Determined and sexy. And damn it to hell, before I know it, she’s in my head, in our bed . . . and if I’m not careful, she’ll see there’s more to me than the man I show the public. She’ll discover the man I hide from the world. The one who struggles to live up to the unrealistic expectations that should never have been mine.

 

All I have to do is make sure no one sees the truth behind our farce.

 

But instead, I let my heart get involved. I begin to believe the lie. And now with everything on the line—the deal, a championship, us—am I willing to risk it all to make her see what the rest of the world believes? That we belong together.

Sandra's Review

5 out of 5 stars

On the Edge is the second book in the Full Throttle series by K. Bromberg. You can read each book as standalone but I highly recommend reading the series in order since they are fun, sexy, and thrilling.

Cruz Navarro is under a lot of pressure to live up to the Navarro name. A billionaire dollar deal just might be a way to get his father off his back. Maybe. Probably not. The thing his father can’t take away is his playboy ways. He loves to party. He loves women. And he loves racing. That’s all he needs or so he thought…

He now needs a babysitter/fake girlfriend if he wants to sign on the dotted line. He has three months to prove to the board that he can make a commitment. To settle down the partying. To be someone to look up to to sell their brand. He isn’t happy about this outcome but if he has to pick one woman to tame him, he chooses her. Maddix Hart.

Maddix was just in the meeting to observe and now, she was assigned to follow a driver from race to race as his girlfriend. It was a conventional way to get a promotion but why not? She wanted to see the world and this was one way to do it. She knew it would change her life but she didn’t realize how much. She was now in a fishbowl. Paps everywhere. She also gets to know Cruz and unexpectedly, she falls…

But will he let her in? His walls are built wide and high around his heart.

I love Cruz and Maddix! I loved watching their growth. Their connection. The way they just want to protect and support each other. It’s a beautiful, fun, sexy ride. I don’t know which couple is next but I do have hope for… heehee.

Review Tour – Vi Keeland, What Happens at the Lake

January 18, 2024 | Posted in Blog Tour, Review | By

 

Title: What Happens at the Lake
Author: Vi Keeland
Genre: Standalone Contemporary Romance
Trope: Grumpy-Sunshine
Release Date: January 15, 2024

 

BLURB

 

When life took an unexpected turn, I decided to get out of New York for a while. What better place to go than the idyllic small town my father spoke about so fondly when I was growing up? Laurel Lake held the title America’s Friendliest Town for seventeen years running, and friendly was just what I needed right now.

 

Unfortunately, friendly wasn’t the welcome I got when I arrived.
Instead, I got Fox Cassidy. My tall, dark, and burly neighbor, who grunted at me instead of saying hello.
Okay, so I might’ve had his mailbox in my hands the first time we met. And it might’ve been a little crushed after removing it from under my tire. And I might’ve needed his help breaking into the place I was staying in after the key broke off in the lock. But still…he didn’t have to be so grumpy.
As time went on though, I started to notice things about Fox other than his glares. Like how he watched me when he thought I wasn’t looking, or how fire ignited in his eyes whenever we bickered. Though I was in Laurel Lake to escape my problems, not create new ones. And getting involved with a man like Fox screamed trouble, even if he was gorgeous and unlike any man I’d ever met.
But alas, problem seemed to be my middle name this year. So why not have some fun while I was here for the summer? It seemed like a good plan. At least until it was time to go home…
They say what happens at the lake, stays at the lake. But it’s not so easy to walk away when what stays behind…is your heart.

5 out of 5 stars

What Happens at the Lake is Vi Keeland’s newest standalone. If you follow my reviews then you know I don’t read blurbs until I need to write the review so I don’t spoil anything so all I knew was that there was a lake involved. Lol. It’s a beautiful setting, really. I fell for Laurel Lake and the people living there.

Josie grew up in Manhattan but her father was raised in America’s Friendliest Town, Laurel Lake. She always wanted to visit the town her father was so fond of but her mother never wanted to go back. Now, was her chance after a tenant moved out of her father’s home, the one she inherited when she was only thirteen. She had three months to give the home a little TLC and get to know the town her father loved. When she got there, the unexpected happened… She met the grumpiest yet hottest man she has ever laid eyes on. Her neighbor. A man who spoke in grunts.

Fox didn’t need this woman living next door, even temporarily. She was a hot mess emphasis on hot. He knew she was trouble. Not just because he knew he would end up helping her with the house but because this town was about to make the phone lines spark with gossip. Small-town living, right? He loved and hated it at the same time. He knew he was an asshole but it is what it is. He didn’t like change…

And everything was about to change.

Damn…I love a grump, especially one with a good heart deep down. I also love a woman who doesn’t give up when trying to find that good heart. Vi absolutely killed it with these characters and their story. It’s fun. It’s sexy. It’s emotional. Oh, did I mention that Fox is an ex-pro hockey player? Extra yum!

P.S. I love Daisy Duck 🦆

Kara's Review

5 out of 5 stars

What Happens at the Lake is Vi Keeland’s newest romance and I loved everything about it. Grumpy hero, smart, capable heroine who are next door neighbors! Josie is looking for a place to heal so she goes to her dad’s hometown. She never thought she’d fall so fast for the town and its people. On her very first day, she hits her neighbors mailbox and he’s less than thrilled. But even though he’s the grumpiest grump alive, he keeps showing up to help her. Just little things and then more and more. Fox does not have time for his sexy new neighbor. But he can’t keep his eyes or his thoughts off her. He eventually gives in and helps her fix up her house. The more he gets to know her, the more he wants to know. And for the first time in a very long time, it’s more than just sexual attraction. He likes her. She makes him smile, and he never smiles. Everyone notices, especially Josie. He just can’t stop himself so he asks her out. Knowing the gossip mill is going to explode. He doesn’t care. He wants her and that’s it. When his past threatens to upend the new life he wants he needs to make a big decision. Let Josie go or chase after her. Oh my word! I loved this story. I laughed out loud so many times I lost count. I smiled, snickered and had to fan myself. I love Laurel Lake! Josie founds more than Fox there, she found her old self. She found a new family. Josie brought Fox back to life and reminded him what’s it feels like to be happy. Overall, I loved it. Every page, every character, everything. I even loved Daisy the duck! Ha!

New Release & Review – Boone, Sawyer Bennett

January 16, 2024 | Posted in New Release, Review | By


New Release from Sawyer Bennett
Boone (Pittsburgh Titans, Book #11)

Sawyer has FIVE signed paperbacks of Boone up for grabs on her website!
If you’d like your chance at a copy, visit: https://sawyerbennett.com/giveaways/boone/
(ends 1/23/2024)


Synopsis:

Boone Rivers uses his fame and fortune as a professional hockey player to his advantage, but not in the way most people would think. Volunteering as often as his busy schedule will allow, Boone meets one brave young boy who turns his world upside down.

As a first-line right winger for the Pittsburgh Titans, I thrive on the thrill of the game. I live for the smell of the ice, the cheer of the crowd and the way my heart pounds whenever I step into the arena. But once I’m out of my skates, my focus is on giving back to the city of Pittsburgh.

It’s funny how life puts people in your path. I meet Aiden while visiting the children’s hospital and I’m struck by the strength and resilience of this 12-year-old kid fighting for his life. As my visits continue, we bond over video games and hockey until one day Aiden’s older sister walks into his room and I realize there might be a bigger purpose here.

Lilly Hoffman has the weight of the world resting on her slight shoulders. Aiden’s illness isn’t getting better, she’s at risk of losing her job and their father is looking for the answers to his prayers at the bottom of a liquor bottle. I find myself wanting to lessen Lilly’s burden and what starts as a simple act of friendship turns into so much more. As we grow closer, I can’t help but fall for this fiercely protective and independent woman with a tender heart and bruised but not yet broken spirit.

As we face a future of never-ending uncertainty, I vow to be Lilly’s source of strength and comfort. Lilly and Aiden have reaffirmed to me the importance of giving and receiving love unconditionally, even in the darkest of times. And no matter what happens next, no one can take that from us.

Sandra's Review

5 out of 5 stars

Boone is the eleventh book in the fantastic Pittsburgh Titans series by Sawyer Bennett. Each book can be read as a standalone but I recommend reading the series since they are interlocked. They each have a unique story and meet-cutes! Boone and Lilly’s meet-cute is both beautiful and heartbreaking.

Boone uses his spare time off the ice visiting children at the hospital. He even brings teammates along since he knows the kids would love to talk with some of their favorite players. He loves to hang out with the kids even if they have to stay in their rooms. He knows all the kids names and has become close to Aiden, a twelve year old fighting for his life. He wasn’t able to visit him for a few weeks after a procedure and on the day he was back, Aiden’s sister comes into Boone’s life and it changes everything…

Lilly didn’t have enough time in a day, between running the family deli and visiting her brother in the hospital she was lucky to eat a meal let alone date. She loved that Aiden and Boone have a connection, it made it even harder for her to resist her feelings towards the man. Even more so when he seemed to want to help not only her brother but herself and their father. What was in it for him? Was he just a good guy or was do he just want the publicity?

I don’t want to spoil anything! I will say that I knew this story would be an emotional one but damn. My name is Sandra, and I am in love with a fictional character. Boone is swoon-worthy with a beautiful heart and a protective spirit. Lilly is a complete badass and stronger than she even knows. Together, along with Aiden is a story that will make you swoon, laugh, cry, and feel every emotion within the pages. I have loved all of the books in the series but this one is unforgettable.

Kara's Review

 

Thoroughly Pucked is the third book in the My Hockey Romance series by Lauren Blakely. I’m loving this series and these characters. I fell hard and fast for Dev and Ledger! I already loved Aubrey and was excited to see her get the double d that she’s been wishing for. She’s left at the altar and saved by her brother’s best friends. Dev and Ledger have always liked Aubrey so they have no problem being there for her. Taking her wherever she needs to go and trying to help her get through the worst day of her life. They never expected to end up on a three-way honeymoon but they are here for it. When there’s only one bed things heat up. Aubrey never thought she’d be equally attracted to two men at the same time, but here she is. In one bed with them both. Dev always had a thing for Aubrey and he can’t believe his luck. Ledger was always attracted to her, but the timing was never right. Now the three of them are together, alone and all bets are off. It’s temporary, just until they get back home. But what happens if they want more? Do they want more? Hell yes they do! Dev and Ledger and are all in, but Aubrey needs a little time to sort out her life. Time they are willing to give her if it means they get to have her for real at the end. Oh man! I loved this story. So. Hard. The heat, the fun, the banter, the laughs, the sexiness. All perfection! Dev with his carefree attitude and love for hockey and family. Ledger with his broodiness and decisions he needs to make about what comes next. And Aubrey with her dreams, fantastic friends and hope. It’s the perfect romance!

Audio: Wowzas! Samantha, Teddy and Jason slayed this one! They were the perfect Aubrey, Dev and Ledger. My ears are still happy!

 

 

Sandra's Review

5 out of 5 stars

Throughly Pucked is the third MFM book in the My Hockey Romance series by Lauren Blakely. This series is bringing the heat and emotions. You can read each one as standalone but I highly recommend reading the series since it’s fun, delicious, and even inspiring.

On Aubrey’s wedding day she become single after her fiancé decided that he would rather be a f*ck boy than a married man. Her day was looking up when she saw two men, her brother’s best friends take her away in a getaway car. They were exactly what she needed. Two friends to make her laugh, turn the day into a fun night. That was when she remembered the honeymoon…

Dev and Ledger didn’t want their time with Aubrey to end. She had a honeymoon planned and paid for and it was still the off-season so she agrees that they can whisk her away for a week of fun. She had no idea how much fun it would be. Between great activities during the day and heated activities at night it was life-changing. She never thought she would fall into bed with one of her brother’s best friends but she was falling in with two and they didn’t mind one bit. It made their connection elevated and beautiful. But is she ready for more than a week of being throughly pucked by these amazing men? They had an expiration date and that was it.

Damn, Gina! Lauren made my iPad steam up with this one! It’s not all about the hotness though. Aubrey was learning more about herself and what she wants in life. Dev and Ledger are supportive and figuring out their own futures. I absolutely loved everything about their story and can’t wait for the next book!

Excerpt Reveal – What Happens at the Lake, Vi Keeland

January 11, 2024 | Posted in Excerpt | By

 

Title: What Happens at the Lake
Author: Vi Keeland
Genre: Standalone Contemporary Romance
Trope: Grumpy-Sunshine
Release Date: January 15, 2024
Take a sneak peek at WHAT HAPPENS AT THE LAKE.
You know you want to…

 

She smelled like damn summer.

 

And it pissed me off.
Plus, I was tired from a shitty night’s sleep. I’d tossed and turned thinking about Little Miss Home Improvement wearing nothing but a pair of denim short overalls and work boots—no shirt, no socks, definitely no bra or underwear.
Josie hopped down from the last two steps on the ladder. “Can I ask you something?”
“What?”
“Are you always this grumpy in the morning?”
“I’m not grumpy.”
“No? So this is what? Your idea of a sparkling personality? I asked if your coffee was okay, and you grunted at me.”
“That wasn’t a grunt. That was a yes.”
Josie made a short, deep noise that sounded like a pig.
I arched a brow. “Is that supposed to be me?”
She made the sound again, this time adding some monkeylike arm movements and jumping around. “Gronk.”
“Cute.”
She jumped again. “Gronk. Gronk.”
I tried not to react, but she was just too damn adorable.
Josie pointed at my face. “There it is again. The elusive Mr. Grumpy Pants smile. It’s kind of…dare I say…nice.” She made an exaggerated gasping sound and covered her mouth. “Oh no. I hope it’s not too painful.”
“Alright, wiseass. I get the point. How about you take your oinking ass out front and grab one of the small two by fours I left on the porch? I’ll show you how to make an easy support to hold up the drywall while it gets screwed into the ceiling.”
Josie strutted to the door. The woman was wearing a white tank top and long, pale pink, flowy skirt to do construction. It looked like she was going on a picnic date, rather than hanging sheetrock—though the tank top hugged her in all the right places, and there was something about her collarbone that I couldn’t drag my eyes away from. She bent to pick up the wood out front, and the top of her tank gaped open, giving me a clear view down her shirt. I forced my head in the other direction, though my eyes managed to slant and continue looking.
“Jesus Christ,” I grumbled to myself. “I need to get the fu¢k out of here.”

Review – Holiday Crush, Lane Hayes

January 5, 2024 | Posted in Blog Tour | By

Holiday Crush
By Lane Hayes

HOLIDAY CRUSH Cover

The Elmwood Stories, Book 3

The hockey has-been, the barista, and some holiday magic…

Court
Cut from the team, fired my agent…now what?

This can’t be it for me. Unfortunately, the phone isn’t ringing. My best bet is to head home for the holidays and regroup.

Problem: I don’t know what to do with myself. Helping out at the rink might be my ticket out of here, but nothing is happening fast enough. And then there’s Ivan. No, no, it’s not what you think. We went to school together. We’re acquaintance-friends…nothing more.

But you know, I like him. A lot. He’s funny and relentlessly upbeat. I’m a better person when I’m with him—the kind who volunteers to deck the halls and wrap garland on lampposts and—

Whoa. What’s happening here?

Ivan
I love the holidays! But running the coffee shop on my own during the busiest season of the year is going to be a challenge. And the sudden appearance of my former crush is all kinds of distracting.

See, I spent my formative years mooning over Court Henderson, our high school’s hockey phenom, even though he was out of my league. Thankfully, I grew up and left the silly remnants of my youth behind. Or did I?

Grown-up Court is full of surprises, and under his gruff yet extremely fine exterior, he’s a good soul with a huge heart. He’s charming, sweet, handsome, and— Uh-oh.

My crush is back. Just in time for the holidays…

Holiday Crush is an MM bisexual, small town romance featuring a renewed ancient crush, some mistletoe latte art, and a little seasonal magic.

Kara's Review

5 out of 5 stars

Holiday Crush is the third book in The Elmwood Stories series by Lane Hayes. I’m loving this series and was so happy to see Ivan get his happily ever after. With a sexy, fun, hockey player who was his childhood crush! Court is back in town and Ivan isn’t going to fall for him again. No matter how sweet and sexy he is. Who’s he kidding? He totally is! But this time it’s not one-sided. I loved Court and Ivan. They are so fun together. They know how to laugh and share their feelings and their sexy times are spicy! Hoping there’s more in the series!

Holiday Crush Teaser 3


Excerpt:

Court shook his head at my amazing, incredible Christmas tree on his way to the door. “I can’t get over that thing. It’s wild.”

I beamed. “I know. I love it. I buy a regular tree too, even though it’s holiday overkill. But who cares? This is my favorite time of year, and I celebrate to the nth degree!”

He shoved his arms into his jacket, a playful grin on his handsome mug. “And do you celebrate by watching scary movies and stringing candy corn and plastic spiders into garland?”

“No, smartass, but damn, that’s a great idea for Halloween next year.”

He chuckled. “So…what do you do for Christmas?”

I braced my left hand on the doorjamb and cast a quick glance at the fireplace to keep from staring at my guest. Standing a foot apart in the cramped doorway between my foyer and living room felt oddly intimate. Court took up space in my tiny abode, with his broad shoulders, towering height, and big muscles. I was more aware of him than ever. It took me a second to gather my thoughts and remember what we were talking about.

Christmas. Right.

“The usual—decorate my house, string lights outside, drape fresh garland everywhere. And yes, there’s always mistletoe. I also watch holiday movies and listen to Christmas music from mid-November till the end of the year. I bake cookies too, which always turn out to be a hot mess, but baking is festive and fun, and my family and friends are kind enough to compliment me anyway. And…I sign up for every holiday event in town, including the Skate with Santa party at the rink, caroling at Wood Hollow’s Home for the elderly, Toys for Tots Sled Fest next to the Christmas Tree Farm in Fallbrook, and of course, Holiday Bingo. By the way, all of those, including Bingo, have volunteer positions…if you’re interested.”

“I’d rather shovel snow in Siberia,” he deadpanned.

I grinned. “Your holiday spirit needs a tune-up.”

“Yeah, yeah. I don’t do holiday spirit.”

“That’s an awful thing to say!”

“Why? There’s no point. I’m usually on the road, so I’ve never bought a tree and I don’t always remember to buy gifts, either. My brother shamelessly shows me up every holiday. Oren bought our folks an oil painting of their ten-year-old golden retriever a couple of years ago. And it was really nice. I bought Mom the same gloves I bought her the previous year and the wrong-sized slippers for Dad.”

“Oh, dear. Well, I’m happy to help you this year. I’m an expert at gift-giving and—what’s so funny?”

Court’s eyes crinkled in amusement. “You’re Elmwood’s emo elf, aren’t you?”

“Ha. Ha.” I moved by him to unlock the door. “Good-bye, Grinch.”

He snickered. “Later. And thanks for tonight. It was fun.”

“Yeah. It was,” I agreed, smiling as he stepped closer.

This was where I was supposed to shuffle out of the way to give him room to slip outside without letting the cold inside, but my feet were seemingly glued to the floor. And now, we were inches apart. So close I could see flecks of gold in his blue eyes and a scar half-hidden in his left brow. I should have jumped away and laughed off this little dance before I accidentally made it awkward.

Too late.

Ugh. Now I was staring at him and he was staring at me and…his mouth was right there, hovering over mine. I could feel his breath on my lips and smell gin and something woodsy and masculine on his skin. And nope, I couldn’t resist.

I leaned in, set my palm on his chest and pressed my lips to Court’s.

And that was the match that started the fire.

A companion novel to Say I’m the One and Let Me Love You

Reeve, an all-new emotional, angsty, new adult romance, and the fourth book in the All of Me Series, from USA Today & Wall Street Journal bestselling author Siobhan Davis is now available!

Vivien Grace Mills has been the center of my universe since the second she entered this world.

Every memory I hold precious includes her.

She’s my biggest champion and the one person keeping me sane during some of the most testing times of my life.

Vivien shows me what it means to love and be loved.

I know she’s the one from an early age.

When I land my dream role, plans for our future are finally coming true.

Until everything falls apart, leaving a complicated trail of broken, scarred hearts and long-lasting consequences.

I messed up: I failed her. I failed me.

I won’t rest until the only woman I love is back in my arms.

Nothing or no one will stop me from reclaiming her heart. Not my manipulative costar, my greedy agent, or the backstabbing studio publicist.

Sandra's Review

5 out of 5 stars

Reeve is a companion novel in the All of Me series by the ever-talented and one of my favorite authors, Siobhan Davis. You can NOT read this as a standalone. Believe me, you will want start at the beginning. It’s one of my favorite series. Ever. I don’t want to get into the storyline especially since if you read the series then you know what happens with Vivien’s POV. I will say that I loved getting Reeve’s POV. We knew he was going through some difficult times but this book dives deeper into his reality. It’s heartbreaking. Don’t get me wrong, I still wanted to knock some sense into him but we get a better understanding of all the hurts and betrayals. He was a determined young man who just wanted the love of his life. His only love. His best friend. He wanted to give her everything but lost his way. It’s an epic roller coaster ride and I am so glad Siobhan gave us his side of the story. I loved that it was just a retelling of the same story. Most of it is brand-new scenes! I can’t wait for Dillon’s! 💚
