About The Hookup Handbook

My love wand is on a strike.

As bad as that blows, pun unintended, it’s ten times worse for me. I’m a male escort, but not just any escort, I’m the escort. The one with a mile-long waiting list and a pristine reputation that’s very well-deserved.

Only now, I’m on hiatus. Because after years of pleasing women all over the city, my man missile decides to get finicky. And the only woman he wants? Someone I can never have—my best friend’s younger sister, the nerdy and awkwardly adorable Sienna.

She’s working at the agency this summer, keeping me organized, handling paperwork, and most importantly, keeping me on track to finish writing my book about sex and intimacy, which is due to my publisher in thirty days.

She thinks I hate her, that I don’t want her here. The truth is much more twisted. I get hard every time she walks into my office. Her wide blue eyes and pouty mouth drive me wild with desire, and if she stays, I’m not sure how much longer I can stay away from her.

Little Miss Overachiever says she’s here to help? Fine. I’m going to put her nerdy, curvy tush to work.

Kara's Review

The Hookup Handbook is the second book in the Escorts, Inc. series by the talented Kendall Ryan. I always know that Kendall is going to entertain me with her sexy heroes and strong leading ladies. We met Case is Boyfriend for Hire and I fell in love with him. He owns, runs and works for his escort service. But lately, he hasn’t been able to er…perform. Until he sees his new employee, his best friend Ryder’s sister. She’s off limits and that is not good. He seems to perk up every time he’s around her and that is not good. They share an office and she’s helping him write his book. About sex. Sienna just needs a job and this will do temporarily. Except that she has to share air with the sexy Case. He’s gorgeous and funny and smart and she’s in so much trouble. Helping him write his book just might kill her. She needs to see if he can practice what he’s preaching. But he’s her brother’s best friend. They don’t have to tell him, right. She won’t fall for him, he’s an escort and she doesn’t want to share. Case wants her despite all the reasons he shouldn’t. After one taste, he can’t stop thinking about her. He needs to have her again and again. What happens when Ryder finds out? Will Case stand up to him and admit it’s more than just a fling? I loved this story! Case and Sienna’s chemistry is off the charts! I couldn’t wait to see what he was going to say next and I wish I could buy a copy of his book! Overall, I laughed, cried, got hot and bothered and swooned!

 

“If I’d known that’s what it would be like, I would have propositioned you way sooner.”

“There’s a reason I’m writing a book, you know.”

 

Sandra's Review

The Hookup Handbook is the second book in the Escorts, Inc. series by Kendall Ryan. It can be read as a standalone but I do recommend reading Boyfriend for Hire as well. It was where I first met Case and his best friend Ryder.
Case owns an escort business. He is also the escort with a mile long waiting list. He loves his job, so much so that he is writing a book about sex. Which is due in thirty days. A book he hasn’t even started writing. It doesn’t help that he can’t do any hands on research since a certain body part has decided to go on hiatus. That was until she walked in. Sienna Johnson. His best friend’s sister. The one who will be working in his office just a few feet away. For the whole summer. What are the odds that his body wants the only woman he can’t touch? He is so fucked.
This wasn’t Sienna’s dream job but it was something she could do for summer until she figures out her next move. She knew she would be around escorts but she didn’t expect Case. Tall, hot, and at the same time, icy. She wanted to figure him out and she had the summer to do it. Could he be the man she was hoping for? A summer fling. He did need help in that department after all.
Could they help each other out in more ways than one?
I thought this was such a fun and sexy ride. I loved Case and Sienna’s banter, it’s full of flirt, laughter, and heat. Even with all that, there really is more to them. They get to know each other while working so closely. But what will Ryder do if he finds out how closely they really want to be?
Overall…I loved it. I thought it was full of fun, heat, heart, and laughs. I liked Case in Boyfriend for Hire but I fell for him hard in this one. I also fell for Sienna. She is bold, beautiful, and sassy.
Quotes:
Damn, she’s bossy. But who am I kidding? Part of me likes it.
“Is this for me?”
“Not sure who else it would be for, Superman.”
“You’re going to pay for that,” I tease.
“I’d say we’ve done some of our finest work in this office this summer.”

Release Day & Reviews – Glass Castle Prince, Nicole Williams

March 20, 2019 By

 

 

 

 

Glass Castle Prince is Nicole Williams’ newest sweet, funny and romantic story. I’m a huge fan of Nicole’s and her writing. She always entertains me with her wit, charm and interesting characters. Glass Castle Prince is a modern romance that felt like a historical romance with the royalty and setting. Charlotte has returned to the estate where she grew up as the Groundskeeper’s daughter. She was never allowed inside the castle and now she’s alone for the winter to take care of it. She’s needed a break from her life to figure out what she wants to do with the rest of her life. She wasn’t expecting her alone time to be interrupted by the prince himself. Edward, handsome, smart and entitled. After all, he’s next in line to be the king. After a hilarious introduction, an exchange of barbs that had me laughing out loud, Edward and Charlotte become friends. She doesn’t see him as the prince and he doesn’t see her as a commoner. They are just themselves. When Charlotte asks for his help with something very unconventional, he can’t say no. No man could. The lines of friendship get blurred and unexpected feeling come into the mix. Edward got more than he bargained for, but can he make his own choices? What if he chooses Charlotte. I really enjoyed this story! It was funny, sexy, interesting and the secondary characters were hilarious. I was glad Edward has such good friends! Charlotte is outspoken, smart, beautiful and doesn’t mince words. Edward is sweet, handsome, knows how to use words and just isn’t sure if he’s ready to be king. It’s his birthright, but it’s a lot to take in when he’s only twenty-two. I loved how honest and open he was. How much he liked Charlotte as a woman. I was swooning all over the place!

 

“I’m not a very good follower.”

“I’m banking on the fact that I’m a better leader.”

“Someone ate a bowl of Cocky O’s for breakfast.”

 

“Last time I went easy on you. I held back. This time I won’t.”

“That was holding back?”

“My whole life, I’m required to exhibit a precise level of restraint in all that I do. I refuse to show that restraint when I’m with a woman. “

 

“Was that your way of saying I’m not exactly pretty?”

“That was my way of saying that for someone who gives very little thought to beauty, I’ve never seen anyone so beautiful in all my life.”

 

Sandra's Review

Glass Castle Prince is Nicole Williams’ next standalone. One I am hoping turns into a series since I enjoyed the supporting characters so much. I will try to make this fast so I don’t spoil anything.
Charlotte makes the decision to take a year off from university so she can figure out what she wants to do next. For the next eight months she will be taking care of the royals’s summer home during the off-season. The one her father was the groundskeeper for until she was ten years old. The one she never stepped foot in until she had the keys to the place. It was the perfect place to be. It was in the middle of nowhere. It was quiet so she could think about her future. Well, that was until four unexpected visitors showed up. One of them…the future king.
Edward was only twenty-two but wasn’t like his peers. He had his friends. He had get together but he never indulged in the party scene. He would rather take a walk around the lake then drink scotch. Of course, the papers didn’t see it that way. And that was exactly why she looked at him like he was nothing but a pompous playboy. And exactly why he liked her. She didn’t kiss his ass like everyone else. She didn’t swoon when he looked at her. She fired back. She was trouble and he liked it. He liked Charlotte from the moment he saw her. But, he couldn’t have her. She deserved better life. One that wasn’t controlled.
What will happen when two people from different ways of life find common ground and an undeniable chemistry?
Everything. Will their separate decisions led them together or apart in the end?
I loved this one! I love when characters see past labels and see the real person underneath them. I also enjoyed their banter. They don’t hold anything back. And like I said, I loved the supporting characters as well and hope to see them again.
Overall…it’s a fun, flirty, sweet, and royally sexy. I laughed, cried, and swooned.
Quotes:
“I was employed to tend to the house, not any people who might find their way inside it. Get your own milk.” For a moment, he seemed as surprised as I was that I’d spurted that.
“And who are you employed by?”
“The Royston Group,” I replied, smiling innocently.
“Who happens to be owned by?”
“Your father.” His hand circled.
“Whose son is?”
I bit my tongue. For half a second. “An asshole.”
“You can’t trust a person whose eyes express something different than their words.”
“Marriage is both a life and death sentence. Might as well like the chick’s brains as much as you do her boobs.”
“Poetry. A future Emerson or Frost.” Frederick tipped an imaginary hat at James.
AP new - synopsis.jpg

 

A glass castle shatters as easily as a glass house—all it takes is one stone.

Prince Edward has known this all of his life, and taken staunch measures to ensure he doesn’t give the public any reason to pick up their rocks. Or torches. Or pitchforks. As a twenty-two-year-old in line to ascend the throne, he lives more like a cloistered monk than his college-aged peers. Restraint is the tone of his life, resilience the theme.

That is, until he meets a young woman who couldn’t care less about his title—unless she’s poking fun at it. Charlotte Everly grew up a stone’s throw away from the royal family’s summer house, but her life was, and is, entirely different from the prince’s.

They clash at each turn, disagree on every topic, and bear a general contempt for one another. Until . . .

One night, accompanied by one proposal, leads to one lapse in judgment . . .

Results in a nationwide scandal neither of them will escape

Special Feature, Reviews, Interview & *Giveaway* – Risky Play, Rachel Van Dyken

March 19, 2019 By

 

Title: Risky Play

Author: Rachel Van Dyken

Release Date: March 19, 2019

Publisher: Skyscape

Series: Red Card, Book 1

Synopsis

What else can a virgin do when she’s ditched at the altar? Seattle heiress Mackenzie Dupont is treating herself to a single-girl honeymoon in Mexico and a desire to relinquish her innocence to a gorgeous one-night stand. Fake names. True pleasure. But when she wakes up alone, Mackenzie realizes just how much anger is left in her broken heart.

Suffering a tragic personal loss, pro soccer player Slade Rodriguez has his reasons for vanishing without a goodbye. Right or wrong, he’s blaming the beautiful and infuriating stranger he never wants to see again. They’re both in for a shock when Mackenzie shows up as his new personal assistant. And they both have a lot to learn about each other. Because they share more than they could possibly know, including a common enemy who’s playing his own games. And he’s not afraid to get dirty.

Now there’s only one way Mackenzie and Slade can win: to trust in each other and to stop hiding from the lies they’ve told, the secrets they’ve kept, the mistakes they’ve made, and the attraction that still burns between them.

 

Down and Dirty Interview with Rachel Van Dyken

1) Coffee or tea?

Coffee ALL the way.

2) Walk on the beach or skiing at a remote chalet?

I’m done with winter, we’re on a break. I need sunshine, a drink, and a white sand beach.

3) Comedy or drama?

It depends on my mood but comedy typically.

4) TV or books?

Books.

5) Best movie you have watched in the last year?

Don’t judge me: Aquaman.

6) Best romance you read in the last year?

STOP, I can’t pick! I adored Lauren Laynes latest, Hot Asset. And I loved The Idea of You, Robinne Lee.

7) A book you wish you had written?
A Court of Thorn and Roses = GOALS!

8) Favorite romance trope to read?

I love enemies to lovers or brother’s best friend.

9) Favorite romance trope to write?

I love banter, so my favorite trope to write is also enemies to lovers.

10) Favorite place to write?

My home office, my husband did an amazing job of making it feel cozy.

11) Your heroine that most closely resembles you?

Is it weird that I put more of myself into my heroes? I tend to be a lot more sarcastic, but if I had to choose probably a mix of Mackenzie from Risky Play and Mo from Eagle Elite (Elicit).

12) A trait that all of your heroes must have?

All of them have a sense of humor.

13) A setting (city/region) you want to write about in the future?

South Korea 😉

14) The actor you used to physically model your hero after in Risky Play?

I modeled Slade after a mixture of Douglas Booth and Diego Boneta.

15) Your favorite scene from Risky Play?

I love the restaurant scene where Slade’s jealous and plotting murder 😉

16) A song that encapsulates the emotion of Risky Play?

I Found by Amber Run.

17) What’s next?

Next we have Kickin It, which is all about sports agent Matt Kingston and his best friend Jagger as they both fall for the right girl at the wrong time.

Kara's Review

Risky Play is the first book in the Red Card series by the fabulous and talented Rachel Van Dyken. Rachel does something very few authors can do. She can write anything. Paranormal, historical, mafia, sports, anything and everything. And she makes them all fresh, new and exciting. I love a good sports romance and this is my first soccer one and I loved it! It’s also strangers to lovers and kind of a second chance romance, also my favorite! Slade and Mackenzie meet on a plane. There’s instant attraction and they do something together that’s out of character for them both. They jump. But after exchanging fake names and Mack waking up alone, life goes on. Until they meet again. This time she’s working for him. Not because she needs the job, but because she’s still getting over her ex and needs something to do. It’s not about money. Slade is still reeling from a loss. He’s cranky and acting like a world class jerk. When he sees Mack again, he assumes the worst. Then he finds himself wanting her around and apologizing repeatedly. Mack finds that she likes taking care of him and his dog. She’s been looking for something her whole life and could she find it in this man? I loved this story! OMG! Slade is so hot, but he’s also sweet, gentle and has a way with words. But he’s sincere. I also wish I could hear his little accent! Mack is strong, tough and more mature than anyone gives her credit for. They are a perfect match. I can’t wait for the next in the series and I’m hoping there’s more to come. A certain someone needs his story!

 

“Next time wear more clothes if you don’t want me to look.”

“You should talk.” she fired back.

“Misunderstanding. I wanted you to look.”

 

“You look…like cake.”

“Cake?”

“Before you get offended, I want to make you aware of the very serious relationship I have with cake. Get between me and cake and you’re taking  your life in your owns hands. And you? You’d be chocolate sin filled with molten lava spilling out on the plate, waiting to be slowly licked up. I think I’d savor you for hours, days…”

She shivered.

 

Sandra's Review

[ur=5]

Risky Play is the first book in the Red Card series by the kickass Rachel Van Dyken. I love when authors give us a new group of characters. It’s like getting to know new friends. I don’t want to ruin the story for anyone so I will make this fast.

Slade needs to get away from his old life before he starts his new one. MacKenzie needs to figure out what she wants in life after she was left at the altar.

Mexico. That was their destination. They were both on covers of magazines but were not in the same circles. He was a professional soccer player. She was an heiress. They both wanted to feel alive. And they did for one night. Then she woke up alone. With him on a plane. They didn’t think they would see each other again. That was until she showed up at his house. As his errand girl.

Slade and Mack didn’t trust easily. They both had their reasons. She was broken hearted. He was struggling after a tragic loss. They were both just trying to get by day by day. Then they walked back into each other’s lives. He didn’t want her there. She didn’t want to give up.

I don’t want to get in to it too much more. I will say that MacKenzie is stronger than she thinks. She doesn’t put up with Slade’s bullshit and I loved that about her. Yes, he was an asshole but don’t give up on him.

Overall…I totally loved it!! It gave me all the feels. From beginning to end I was hooked.

P.S. Trust Rachel. She knows what she is doing.

Quotes:

“Oh? You often kiss strangers?”
“Only ones from Spain.”

“I’m killing him tonight.”
Matt just sighed. “You can’t tell me that if I’m supposed to be your alibi. At least be smart about it.”
“I’ll go Dexter on his ass. He won’t know what hit him.”

“Call me woman and I’m burning more than the bacon.”

Right or wrong, he’s blaming the beautiful and infuriating stranger he never wants to see again. They’re both in for a shock when Mackenzie shows up as his new personal assistant. And they both have a lot to learn about each other. Because they share more than they could possibly know, including a common enemy who’s playing his own games. And he’s not afraid to get dirty.

Now there’s only one way Mackenzie and Slade can win: to trust in each other and to stop hiding from the lies they’ve told, the secrets they’ve kept, the mistakes they’ve made, and the attraction that still burns between them.

A stand-alone, contemporary romance.

Sandra's Review

Risky Play is the first book in the Red Card series by the kickass Rachel Van Dyken. I love when authors give us a new group of characters. It’s like getting to know new friends. I don’t want to ruin the story for anyone so I will make this fast.

Slade needs to get away from his old life before he starts his new one. MacKenzie needs to figure out what she wants in life after she was left at the altar.

Mexico. That was their destination. They were both on covers of magazines but were not in the same circles. He was a professional soccer player. She was an heiress. They both wanted to feel alive. And they did for one night. Then she woke up alone. With him on a plane. They didn’t think they would see each other again. That was until she showed up at his house. As his errand girl.

Slade and Mack didn’t trust easily. They both had their reasons. She was broken hearted. He was struggling after a tragic loss. They were both just trying to get by day by day. Then they walked back into each other’s lives. He didn’t want her there. She didn’t want to give up.

I don’t want to get in to it too much more. I will say that MacKenzie is stronger than she thinks. She doesn’t put up with Slade’s bullshit and I loved that about her. Yes, he was an asshole but don’t give up on him.

Overall…I totally loved it!! It gave me all the feels. From beginning to end I was hooked.

P.S. Trust Rachel. She knows what she is doing.

Quotes:

“Oh? You often kiss strangers?”
“Only ones from Spain.”

“I’m killing him tonight.”
Matt just sighed. “You can’t tell me that if I’m supposed to be your alibi. At least be smart about it.”
“I’ll go Dexter on his ass. He won’t know what hit him.”

“Call me woman and I’m burning more than the bacon.”

 

Kara's Review

Risky Play is the first book in the Red Card series by the fabulous and talented Rachel Van Dyken. Rachel does something very few authors can do. She can write anything. Paranormal, historical, mafia, sports, anything and everything. And she makes them all fresh, new and exciting. I love a good sports romance and this is my first soccer one and I loved it! It’s also strangers to lovers and kind of a second chance romance, also my favorite! Slade and Mackenzie meet on a plane. There’s instant attraction and they do something together that’s out of character for them both. They jump. But after exchanging fake names and Mack waking up alone, life goes on. Until they meet again. This time she’s working for him. Not because she needs the job, but because she’s still getting over her ex and needs something to do. It’s not about money. Slade is still reeling from a loss. He’s cranky and acting like a world class jerk. When he sees Mack again, he assumes the worst. Then he finds himself wanting her around and apologizing repeatedly. Mack finds that she likes taking care of him and his dog. She’s been looking for something her whole life and could she find it in this man? I loved this story! OMG! Slade is so hot, but he’s also sweet, gentle and has a way with words. But he’s sincere. I also wish I could hear his little accent! Mack is strong, tough and more mature than anyone gives her credit for. They are a perfect match. I can’t wait for the next in the series and I’m hoping there’s more to come. A certain someone needs his story!

 

“Next time wear more clothes if you don’t want me to look.”

“You should talk.” she fired back.

“Misunderstanding. I wanted you to look.”

 

“You look…like cake.”

“Cake?”

“Before you get offended, I want to make you aware of the very serious relationship I have with cake. Get between me and cake and you’re taking  your life in your owns hands. And you? You’d be chocolate sin filled with molten lava spilling out on the plate, waiting to be slowly licked up. I think I’d savor you for hours, days…”

She shivered.

Release Day & 5 Heart Reviews – The Hookup Handbook, Kendall Ryan

March 19, 2019 By

A hot new brother’s best friend standalone romance from New York Times best selling author Kendall Ryan is live available everywhere.

Get THE HOOKUP HANDBOOK today!

About The Hookup Handbook

My love wand is on a strike.

As bad as that blows, pun unintended, it’s ten times worse for me. I’m a male escort, but not just any escort, I’m the escort. The one with a mile-long waiting list and a pristine reputation that’s very well-deserved.

Only now, I’m on hiatus. Because after years of pleasing women all over the city, my man missile decides to get finicky. And the only woman he wants? Someone I can never have—my best friend’s younger sister, the nerdy and awkwardly adorable Sienna.

She’s working at the agency this summer, keeping me organized, handling paperwork, and most importantly, keeping me on track to finish writing my book about sex and intimacy, which is due to my publisher in thirty days.

She thinks I hate her, that I don’t want her here. The truth is much more twisted. I get hard every time she walks into my office. Her wide blue eyes and pouty mouth drive me wild with desire, and if she stays, I’m not sure how much longer I can stay away from her.

Little Miss Overachiever says she’s here to help? Fine. I’m going to put her nerdy, curvy tush to work.

Kara's Review

The Hookup Handbook is the second book in the Escorts, Inc. series by the talented Kendall Ryan. I always know that Kendall is going to entertain me with her sexy heroes and strong leading ladies. We met Case is Boyfriend for Hire and I fell in love with him. He owns, runs and works for his escort service. But lately, he hasn’t been able to er…perform. Until he sees his new employee, his best friend Ryder’s sister. She’s off limits and that is not good. He seems to perk up every time he’s around her and that is not good. They share an office and she’s helping him write his book. About sex. Sienna just needs a job and this will do temporarily. Except that she has to share air with the sexy Case. He’s gorgeous and funny and smart and she’s in so much trouble. Helping him write his book just might kill her. She needs to see if he can practice what he’s preaching. But he’s her brother’s best friend. They don’t have to tell him, right. She won’t fall for him, he’s an escort and she doesn’t want to share. Case wants her despite all the reasons he shouldn’t. After one taste, he can’t stop thinking about her. He needs to have her again and again. What happens when Ryder finds out? Will Case stand up to him and admit it’s more than just a fling? I loved this story! Case and Sienna’s chemistry is off the charts! I couldn’t wait to see what he was going to say next and I wish I could buy a copy of his book! Overall, I laughed, cried, got hot and bothered and swooned!

 

“If I’d known that’s what it would be like, I would have propositioned you way sooner.”

“There’s a reason I’m writing a book, you know.”

 

Sandra's Review

The Hookup Handbook is the second book in the Escorts, Inc. series by Kendall Ryan. It can be read as a standalone but I do recommend reading Boyfriend for Hire as well. It was where I first met Case and his best friend Ryder.
Case owns an escort business. He is also the escort with a mile long waiting list. He loves his job, so much so that he is writing a book about sex. Which is due in thirty days. A book he hasn’t even started writing. It doesn’t help that he can’t do any hands on research since a certain body part has decided to go on hiatus. That was until she walked in. Sienna Johnson. His best friend’s sister. The one who will be working in his office just a few feet away. For the whole summer. What are the odds that his body wants the only woman he can’t touch? He is so fucked.
This wasn’t Sienna’s dream job but it was something she could do for summer until she figures out her next move. She knew she would be around escorts but she didn’t expect Case. Tall, hot, and at the same time, icy. She wanted to figure him out and she had the summer to do it. Could he be the man she was hoping for? A summer fling. He did need help in that department after all.
Could they help each other out in more ways than one?
I thought this was such a fun and sexy ride. I loved Case and Sienna’s banter, it’s full of flirt, laughter, and heat. Even with all that, there really is more to them. They get to know each other while working so closely. But what will Ryder do if he finds out how closely they really want to be?
Overall…I loved it. I thought it was full of fun, heat, heart, and laughs. I liked Case in Boyfriend for Hire but I fell for him hard in this one. I also fell for Sienna. She is bold, beautiful, and sassy.
Quotes:
Damn, she’s bossy. But who am I kidding? Part of me likes it.
“Is this for me?”
“Not sure who else it would be for, Superman.”
“You’re going to pay for that,” I tease.
“I’d say we’ve done some of our finest work in this office this summer.”

Review Blast – Hissy Fit, Lani Lynn Vale

March 19, 2019 By

 

 

 

 

He is the one that never looks her way.

He is handsome and strong.

He is rough around the edges and mean.

He is everything she’s ever wanted.

He doesn’t even know she exists.

Her life is a joke.

***

She doesn’t step on cracks in the sidewalk.

She laughs at inappropriate times.

She talks when she shouldn’t.

She is clumsy and trips on air.

She is finally on his radar.

God help her now.

Kara's Review

I’m a new fan of Lani Lynn Vale and I can’t even express how mad I am at myself for not reading her sooner! I was hooked from the very first page and literally didn’t put it down until I was finished! Lani’s writing is fresh, her characters so likable, the story full of fun, hilariousness, sexiness, suspense, more fun and more sexiness. Raleigh has had a crush on Ezra McDuff, the football and baseball coach, for the school where she teachers, since she was a little girl. Years and years were spent watching, fantasizing and wanting him. He never saw her. After one of her many falls, trips and crazy accidents, she literally falls at his feet. Then runs. Now he sees her, wants her and he’s not going to give up until he catches her. Raleigh can’t catch a break. She trips on thin air, falls over nothing and now she has to do it with Coach McDuff watching her. When he asks her out, she feel as if all her dreams have come true. She doesn’t hesitate to say yes and their first date ends in tornado of emotions and a sexy as sin romp that she’s been dreaming about for years. There are a few obstacles. But nothing is going to stop Ezra from making Raleigh his. She couldn’t put up a fight even if she wanted to. Can Raleigh forgive Ezra for never seeing her? Will Ezra make up for their lost time. I LOVED THIS STORY! So. Effing. Much! I laughed out loud while my husband just shook his head at me. I got hot and bothered, laughed more, cheered, cringed and fell hard and fast for Ezra. He’s sexy, smart, funny, loves his sister, best friend and nieces and nephews. Treats his players like men, would do anything for them. Loves Raleigh’s quirks and loves her more with each trip, fall and trip to the doctor. He’s not the same person he was when he was eighteen. He’s a good man and now that he has a good woman, he’s not going to let her get away. Every time he called her darlin’ I melted! Raleigh is a hot mess! But she cares about her students, embraces her bad luck and just can’t believe her crush wants her back. Better late than never. I loved how mature they were. They talked about their feelings, shared their fears. They are adults and acted like it! He didn’t have a problem with the teams, teachers, entire town knowing how much he wanted his woman!

This is one of those books that as soon as I was done with it I wanted to start it all over again. That’s how much I loved it.

 

His ass was encased in a pair of jeans that molded delectably to his ass so perfectly that I wanted to write the makers of Levi Jeans a letter and tell them they should get an award.

 

“I haven’t been quiet about my feelings for her. It’s not my fault that y’all are just exceptionally unobservant.”

 

“It may have taken me a long time to see you, but once you were there, I’ll never be able to look away. Not ever again.”

 

 

 

 

 

 

Lani Lynn Vale is a USA Today Bestselling Author of over thirty titles. She is married with three children, two dogs, two cats, a donkey, and a couple (a couple also meaning over twenty) chickens.

When she’s not writing, you can find her curled up in her favorite chair reading.

Lani is married with three children and lives in the Great State of Texas.

Blog Tour, 5 Heart Reviews & *Giveaway* – Order, Kindle Alexander

March 15, 2019 By

Title: Order
Series: Tattoos and Ties #2
Author: Kindle Alexander
Genre: M/M MC Romance
Release Date: March 5, 2019

Order is the second book in the Tattoos and Ties Duet by the talented duo, Kindle Alexander. It can not be read as a standalone so you must read Havoc first. Order starts where Havoc ended. Six months after Keyes and Alec first met. The synopsis is is perfect so I will make this fast.
Alec and Keyes have been hiding their relationship over the last six months. And they will have to keep it that way if they want to stay safe. Between Alec working in the DA’s office and Keyes being a member of the Disciples of Havoc MC they can’t risk being seen in public together. Inside their bubble is full of heat, heart, and laughs. But, Keyes still doesn’t understand why Alec would want a man like him. He believes Alec deserves someone better. Someone he could go on actual dates with. Someone who couldn’t get him killed. Will Alec be able to show Keyes that his feelings are real? That they are not clouded by their mind blowing sex. That Keyes is the man he wants a future with.
I loved this duet. Hard. It’s full of action. Sexually and otherwise. Between the MC and the DA’s office these two have their work cut out for them. Its like the world wants them apart when fate wants them together. They are complete opposites on the outside but on the inside they both want the same thing. An Us. Will they get their happily ever after?
Overall…I love Alec & Keyes. The story was every thing I expected and more. I hope to see them again in future books. I need more!
P.S it’s so cute how they call each other His Mister.
Quotes:
Fairytales were for children’s books, and he sure as hell didn’t live in a damn book.
“Come on, Batman! To the Batcave, my engine needs revving.”
“You make me mad with need. Want you to feel half of what I feel when I’m with you.”

Order is the second book in the Tattoos and Ties Duet. You really do need to read Havoc first since this is an immediate continuation of Keyes and Alec’s story. Kindle Alexander broke my m/m cherry and I haven’t looked back since! This writing duo is one of my favorites. They always give us the angst, sexiness, lovable characters, humor and the sexiness. Key and Alec couldn’t be more opposite, but they are making their life together work. It’s not always easy, and when feelings are involved, it’s harder to navigate. They are on opposite sides of the law, but they lay their heads next to each other every night. While they both ultimately want the same thing, their happily ever after, the secrets they are keeping from each other could be their downfall. Key is afraid for Alec’s life if the club finds out they are involved. Alec is afraid of losing Key. In the end, they have to come clean, communicate and get on the same side. Will Key and Alec get a chance at their forever? I loved this story! There was just enough angst to keep me invested and the dynamic between Key and Alec is so much fun. Key doesn’t like to talk and Alec can’t stop talking! Overall, I laughed, cried, got hot and bothered and felt so hopeful!

 

Oh hell. Key had always been mouthwatering, but this…”You’re handsome.”

Key chuckled. “Surprised about that?”

“No…”

 

“I wasn’t the one withholdin’ sex. No more of that bullshit. Understood?”

“We’ll talk about that too. Come on.”

“Why do we have to talk so much? Just agree.”

 

“I’ll ride you about this, so much so that you’ll stay out of situations like this just so you don’t have to listen to me bitch.”

“Oh hell, I know how much you like your fuckin’ words, but my  mind kinda stayed in the gutter after you offered to ride me.”

“… full of emotion that guides a journey that will tug at your heartstrings. I loved every word and look forward to more from this crew of characters that only Kindle Alexander can create” ~Amazon Review

 

 

“This is a fast-paced book with action, adventure, a little mystery, and a whole lotta hot loving.” ~Amazon Review

 

 

“Their chemistry set my ereader on fire, and the HEA ending left me cheering so loud…” ~Amazon Review

Assistant District Attorney Alec Pierce wants a future with the sexy, tough-talking biker who came to his rescue six months ago. But when evidence capable of destroying his future comes to light, Alec sets a plan in motion to keep the man he loves from a district attorney bent on vengeance.
 
Will Alec’s efforts pay off or will he destroy them both in the process?
 
As a Disciples of Havoc member, Keyes Dixon rides the line between society’s moral code and that of his brothers. He straddles two worlds… One owns him and the other seduces him with the promise of a future. But when a rush to judgment has him swerving to miss the roadblocks suddenly in his lane, he’ll have to choose between the club that demands his loyalty and the gorgeous assistant district attorney who deserves his commitment.
 
Can Keyes escape his circumstances to take a chance on a future he wants?
 
Six months into what started as a one-night stand, both men must navigate their developing feelings as they remain bound by differing oaths that threaten to drive them apart. Not only does their future hang in the balance of opposing forces, but an unexpected strike of the gavel could send them on a collision course neither is prepared for.
 
Will havoc continue to determine their lives or is their love strong enough to bring order?


Best Selling Author Kindle Alexander is an innovative writer, and a genre-crosser who writes classic fantasy, romance, suspense, and erotica in both the male/male and male/female genres. It’s always a surprise to see what’s coming next!
 
I live in the suburbs of Dallas where it’s true, the only thing bigger than an over active imagination, may be women’s hair!
Usually, I try for funny. Humor is a major part of my life – I love to laugh, and it seems to be the thing I do in most situations – regardless of the situation, but jokes are a tricky deal… I don’t want to offend anyone and jokes tend to offend. So instead I’m going to tell you about Kindle.
 
I tragically lost my sixteen year old daughter to a drunk driver. She had just been at home, it was early in the night and I heard the accident happen. I’ll never forget that moment. The sirens were immediate and something inside me just knew. I left my house, drove straight to the accident on nothing more than instinct. I got to be there when my little girl died – weirdly, I consider that a true gift from above. She didn’t have to be alone.
 
That time in my life was terrible. It’s everything you think it would be times about a billion. I love that kid. I loved being her mother and I loved watching her grow into this incredibly beautiful person, both inside and out. She was such a gift to me. To have it all ripped away so suddenly broke me.
 
Her name was Kindle. Honest to goodness – it was her name and she died a few weeks before Amazon released their brand new Kindle ereader. She had no idea it was coming out and she would have finally gotten her name on something! Try finding a ruler with the name Kindle on it.. It never happened.
 
Through the course of that crippling event I was lucky enough to begin to write with a dear friend in the fan fiction world of Facebook. She got me through those dark days with her unwavering support and friendship. There wasn’t a time she wasn’t there for me. Sometimes together and sometimes by myself, we built a world where Kindle lives and stands for peace, love and harmony. It’s its own kind of support group. I know without question I wouldn’t be here today without her.
