New Release and Review – Kaden & Keegan, Nicole Edwards

October 20, 2020 By

Bristol Newton has spent the past couple of years doing her best to keep her distance from Kaden and Keegan Walker. Up to this point, avoiding the sexy twins hasn’t been as easy as she hoped it would be. Thankfully, she has a plan: sign them up for the Fall Festival’s auction and let some lucky lady win a date with them. After all, it’s for a good cause. Plus, it ensures she doesn’t get pulled under their spell.

She should’ve known even that wouldn’t be easy. When Kaden and Keegan have questions, Bristol reluctantly agrees to dinner to explain the details. That was her first mistake. The second resulted in the hottest night of her entire life with the two sexiest men she’d ever met.

A night that would change all their lives in ways they never expected.

Kaden and Keegan is the ninth book in the Coyote Ridge book by the talented Nicole Edwards. I can’t get enough of the Walkers. All the way from Travis to Ethan, to every cousin, nephew, you name a Walker, I’m there! We’ve gotten to know Kaden and Keegan a little and now they get their chance at their dream. They are identical twins, and ever since they were kids they knew they wanted to love one woman. Share her and their lives. It’s just who they are. Once they met Bristol they knew she was the woman. But she wasn’t ready to admit her desires. They’ve waited a long time for her to realize what she wanted and after one night with her, all their lives are about to change. But she’s still scared and unsure what everyone will think. Kaden and Keegan are going to give her time and space, but not too much. They’ve waited long enough. The other parts of their lives are falling into place, they just need Bristol to jump with them. I loved watching these three fall in love! I understand her reluctance and worried what others might think. But when you fall in love that’s it. You have to do what your heart tells you and go all in. Kaden and Keegan are yummy! Sexy, swoony and funny. And even though they are identical, they are so different! I love how they balanced each other out. Kaden is more serious, Keegan is laid back. But when they both want something, look out!

“We should take this slow,” Kaden said when they came up for air.

Always the cautious one, his brother.

But he was right, they really should take –

“Or not,” she said, reaching for Keegan again.

Okay, yeah. What she said.

“You’re never gonna wonder just how much we want you, Bristol.” Kaden whispered.

From New York Times bestselling authors Vi Keeland and Penelope Ward comes a love story about taking chances and the surprises that come with them.


My love story all started with a letter.
Only it wasn’t from the man I’d eventually fall in love with. It was from his daughter. A sweet little girl named Birdie Maxwell who’d written to the magazine that I worked for.
You see, once a year my employer fulfilled a few wishes for readers. Only that column didn’t start up again for months.
So I fulfilled some of her wishes myself. It was harmless…so I thought. Until one day I took things too far.
While anonymously granting yet another of Birdie’s wishes, I got a look at her father. Her devastatingly handsome, single dad father.
I should have stopped playing fairy godmother then. I should have left well enough alone. But I just couldn’t help myself. I had a connection to this girl. One that had me acting irrationally.
Like when I showed up on their doorstep.

Sandra's Review

5 out of 5 stars

Love Song is a standalone novella in the Stage Dive series by Kylie Scott. It’s is also part of the 1001 Dark Nights world. I have read a few but not all of the books in the Stage Dive series and enjoyed each one. There is just something about a rock star, right? Yum. Poetic and sexy.

One year ago, she kicked his ass out. And within that year he has written an hit album about their break-up, living in the same apartment building with rock stars, and touring. Famous and rich when one year ago he was living in her apartment, eating cold pizza and writing music. And for that he is grateful and why he sent her a check. And exactly, why she wanted to talk to him. She didn’t want it. What she wanted was to hate him. To hate him for the lyrics of those hit songs. They were lies to her. And she wanted to talk to him about everything one last time, face-to-face. What she didn’t expect was the way she felt towards him. Especially when they go up to his fancy new apartment. And especially when he tells her the truth about the last year.

I can’t say more than that. I will say that this might be a novella but there is a lot of story within. Lots of fight, emotion, love, and sexiness.


“They can’t all fall at your feet, Adam. It would get boring.”

He frowned. “With her, just once would be nice.”

“You’re a demanding woman. You know that?”

“Damn right I am.”

“Break my heart again, Jill.” His sweet sexy smile made my heart hurt. Damn the man. “C’mon. I dare you.”

Sandra's Review

5 out of 5 stars

Perfectly Thin is Margaret McHeyzer’s newest must-read. I love that she writes stories that are about hard subjects. Real. Raw. Ones that make you think. Make you change your way of thinking even. I have two girls. Eleven and thirteen years old. This is the kind of story I needed. It’s a subject that I worry about with my girls.

Jane is a senior in high school. She isn’t popular. She has two best friends. Would rather hang out with them, read a book, or be with family rather than go to a party. She is smart, beautiful, and loved. She has always been different. Bigger than her sisters and classmates. She recently lost some weight in a healthy way. She is proud herself until she goes on a date. With an asshole. She was planning on losing more weight. A few pounds at most. Then she would be someone. Someone who others wanted to be. Someone to be loved. Someone to someone instead of something. She saw herself as fat. That was it. That everyone watched her. Everyone saw her as an elephant. So, those few pounds? Turn into more. More exercise. Less food. Then she would be someone. But, what happens when it goes too far? Will her body survive? Will the voices take control or will she?

Wow!! This. All of this. Margaret is the queen of the hard subjects. This one is one that I so worry about raising two girls. I have always taught them to not give a fuck what others think but as they turn into teens, it’s even harder. Kids are assholes. Adults are too. My girls are eleven and thirteen. The hard years. I try so hard to be careful with this subject. One loves sugar. One has OCD among other things. It’s a balance. To be healthy. To have a healthy relationship with food. I have had my ups and downs and still do. This book will stay with me and help with hard conversations. Thank you, Margaret for writing the hard subjects. I know it’s not always easy but worth it.


“You’re going to die, Jane,” she says again, this time in a slower, drawn-out breath.

“I just need to lose some more weight so I can look like everyone else,” I say to her.

I’m not letting you win, you, asshole. I control you, you don’t control me. To hell with you, food. I’ll eat when I want, not when you want to provoke me. I hate you. You controlling, manipulative, evil, asshole.

“I want to be a witness to your amazing life as it unfolds.”







**Write something worth reading**
I’m Margaret and I’m a self-published author.
Recently I was fortunate in obtaining New York Times best-selling status on my YA/NA book – Ugly, and my YA book – Mistrust.
My last six books have been YA and I’m completely in love with the genre. I love being able to communicate with people through my words and stories.
My writing genres all differ, but the one thing I keep consistent is my heroines. All my female lead characters are strong, gutsy and not the ‘perfect’ woman. While my books all have romantic elements in them, they aren’t just about the romance. They’re about finding strength, acceptance and making life long connections.
I hope you enjoy my stories as much as I have while writing them.

“Jonah.” My name is growled.  Roman grabs my shirt when I spin around and pulls me into a classroom with no lights on. Did he not hear the sermon? We can’t be caught together. Expecting to hit the wall, I stumble into the gloomy room with Roman shutting the door behind me. “What are you doing in here?” He doesn’t answer me, just grips my shirt again and pushes me against the wall where we won’t be seen by anyone walking past the door and he’s pressed against me. His lips are harsh and demanding against mine. He’s pissed off, but I’m too hurt by my father’s words to be angry yet. It’ll come, but right now, my heart is heavy and broken.  Gripping his face, I kiss him back just as hard, frantic for his touch. My tongue duels with his and my teeth latch onto his lip. He growls, the rumble of it vibrating my chest. He’s pressed against me, mouth to thigh, and hard as steel. Blood pumps through my veins, filling my cock at his closeness.  He reaches for my pants, and I break our kiss. “Roman,” I pant, my hands reaching for his wrists. “Why do you come here?” His question catches me off-guard. He’s still crowding me against the wall, his deep blue eyes searching my face for something, but it’s hard to think with him this close to me. “Why wouldn’t I? I’m a son of God.” Confusion leaves me open for his next assault. Roman’s lips crush mine, taking no prisoners. This kiss is hard, demanding, brutal. It’s exactly what I need. The pain, the desperation.   I kiss him back just as hard, biting at his lips, sucking on his tongue, ravaging his mouth. My dick aches in my pants, hard, desperate for attention. Roman’s body moves against me, his dick just as hard behind his zipper.  Reaching down, he grabs my leg and pulls it around his hip to get a better angle. His thick cock sliding against mine has my eyes rolling back into my head and he swallows my moan.  My hands grip his shirt, pushing him away from me, forcing him to let go of my lips. We stand there for a long minute, panting, not saying anything. “We can’t do this here.” I’m finally able to get the words out. Roman smirks that damn look that says, “I can do whatever the fuck I want.” His hands cup my ass, forcing me to grind against him. My eyes close and a groan rumbles from my throat.  Stop,” I pant. “We can’t do this here. Not in the House of God. It’s sacrosanct. It’s wrong.”  “Does it feel good, Jonah?” Roman lips brush against my ear. “My dick against yours?” “Yes,” I hiss through clenched teeth, pleasure overriding the common sense part of my brain. “Does it feel right? Me touching you like this?” His teeth nip at the skin of my neck. “Huh? Does this feel perverted? Does this feel like something you can just stop wanting?” Roman’s hand moves to the front of my pants once again, his palm pushing and stroking against my dick through my pants. My hips buck against him on instinct, wanting more. His lips drop to mine again, shutting down all logical thought. My hands move to his hair, pulling on the gold locks he wears so proudly. 

Meet Andi

From Dyslexic kid with a love of Algebra to a published author, no one expected me to become an author. I love to write about tortured pasts and hot sex, a happily ever after that has to be worked for. My stories tend to be contemporary with a few little dark elements and some comic relief, typically in the form of sarcasm.

Kara's Review

5 out of 5 stars

One Exquisite Touch is book one in The Extravagant series by the incredibly talented Lauren Blakely. This series is starting off with a bang. It’s hot, sexy, a little sweet, emotional and did I say sexy? Sage is looking for something extra. More. She’s not even sure what she wants until she meets him at a masquerade ball. The sexy masked stranger makes her body hum and her heart race. She wants to see him again and hold him to his promises, but she doesn’t expect him to walk into her office a few days later. She’s shocked that her new competition is the man who played her body. Cole Donovan. Owner of the new hotel on the Strip. Her rival. This can’t he happening. How is she supposed to stop wanting him? She wants more. She needs more. Is it possible to fulfill your fantasies with your rival? Cole would recognize his stranger anywhere but he can’t believe his luck when she turns out to be Sage Carmichael. A woman who he’ll be fighting to win business in Vegas. He won’t be deterred that easily thought. Rival or not, Sage is everything he’s ever wanted in a woman and he’s not going to be able to stay away from her. Oh my Lord! Cole is so off the charts sexy with his dark eyes, commanding presence, love of books and thoughtful ways. He’s smart, handsome, caring and hot. Sage is beautiful, smart, dedicated and has been waiting for a man like Cole. Together they are on fire! In the bedroom and in business, they are the perfect match. I’m loving all the secondary characters and can’t wait for their stories!

Audio: Not only is the book Lauren’s sexiest yet, these narrators blew my mind with the hotness! Emma sounds the best I’ve ever heard and she takes Lauren’s sexy words and gives them life with her confidence and sexiness. Joe and Shane are off the charts sexy as always, but they stepped it up for this one. If that’s even possible!

Wesleigh is a new to me narrator and I enjoyed her voice.

Sandra's Review

5 out of 5 stars

One Exquisite Touch is the first novel in the The Extravagant series by Lauren Blakely. There is a prequel, One Night Only and I HIGHLY recommend reading it since it’s not only hot AF but it’s the beginning of desires being filled in the city of sin. You will also meet characters for future naughty nights.

Sage Carmichael is powerful, beautiful, and discovering herself. Her desires. Her wants. Her needs. She was a woman who wore slacks and a blouse with a French twist to meetings, dinners, and in the office. At night, she was a woman who liked to dress up, in costumes, in works of art, in secret. She was the co-CEO of the most beautiful hotel on the Strip, she ran board meetings, and was a pillar in the community. She was also a woman who wanted to be adorned, cherished, and filthy. What she didn’t know was two men were about to come into her life and give her everything she didn’t know she craved…

Holy f*cking hotness!!! They might have been rivals in business but they were fire in the bedroom. Seriously, so fucking hot. Cole and Daniel are like fire and ice and it made Sage flame up. Every touch. Every lick. Every smack. It was both swoon worthy and dirty. Not only were they dirty-talkers but they definitely knew how to back it up. Every. Single. Time. But, this story isn’t just about sex. It’s about exploring your desires and yourself in the process. It’s about trust, love, competition, and discovery. I loved every moment of this book.

Overall…it’s a book full of seduction, desire, love, and discovery. I was seriously hot and bothered throughout the whole thing. Through their words and touch. It was beautiful, sweet, swoony, and it also made me laugh. I am in love with all these characters and I can’t wait for the rest of the series.


One makes me swoon; the other makes me burn.

His wicked words send tingles through me, around me, wrapping me up in them like someone has sprinkled me with erotic pixie dust, and it’s not fair, it’s not fair, it’s not fair.

Her whole body is an erogenous zone if you play her right. Hit the right notes. I can. Daniel can. We can.




A sexy enemies-to-lovers standalone, rich with masquerades, billionaires and forbidden trysts!

When the invitation arrived, it detailed the rules of the masquerade–no names, no identities.

I set one more–find a most wicked man for one night, the kind who’ll bring me deliciously naughty pleasure.

But as the clock ticks to midnight, he finds me, whisks me away to a secret alcove, and delivers all that dirty bliss and then some, leaving me craving more. We make arrangements for another secret rendezvous.

Only fate has other plans, since I run into him the next morning. Turns out the stranger at the ball is the billionaire owner of the hotel across the Strip from mine.

My rival. My enemy.

The last thing I’ll do is let the brilliant, mercurial man who wants a piece of my business into my bed again.

But when he throws down a daring, risqué bet. I have to decide if I want to raise the stakes.

Or walk away…

ONE EXQUISITE TOUCH is a wickedly racy, high-stakes love story between a man and a woman. It also features several sexy MFM love scenes.


One Exquisite Touch is a standalone in The Extravagant series. Other standalones include One Night Only, and One Alluring Chance. The book One Time Only is a standalone MM spinoff in The Extravagant world.



Check out the excerpt below and get a taste of this deliciously sexy novel now!


Standing in front of the glass window overlooking the casino is a stunning woman in a red dress with a zipper all the way down the back.

I want to unzip it with my teeth.

Her blonde hair is twisted neat and tight in a clip. Those silky strands remind me of my stranger. That clip, too, reminds me of the one she left behind that night. The barrette I picked up when she scurried away. The barrette I plan to give her next weekend at the party.

But right now, I’m not thinking of my stranger, because I’m too busy admiring the view in front of me.

That body. That ass. Those legs.

She stands at the window, hands on the sill, gazing at her empire below.

She looks powerful, and power looks so damn good on a woman, especially when a powerful woman gets on her knees at your command.

I’d like to put her on her knees.

Release Tour & Reviews – The Hookup, Kindle Alexander

October 16, 2020 By


Title: The Hookup

Author: Kindle Alexander
Genre: M/M Romance Novella
Release Date: October 12, 2020
Cover Design: Reese Dante Book Cover Art & Design
Meet me @ The Hookup?
A well-deserved celebration is in order for attorney Easton Elliott. Everything is going as planned until a tempting glimpse of the past sidebars the handsome attorney’s party.
An unexpected invitation has linguist Grant Holt excited about the spur-of-the-moment rendezvous. But words are futile when he arrives to find there’s been a mix up. 
A text, a celebration, and a misunderstanding all lead to…The Hookup
5 out of 5 stars

The hookup is a short story that was featured in the BookWorm Box last year. This is my first time reading it and holy hotness, Batman! I can’t really say much since it is a short story and don’t want to spoil it. I can say it’s one scandalous hookup between a lawyer and a sailor at The Hookup bar. One that was needed. A celebration and a way to feel good.


Lips that plump and full made for long lingering kisses, vulgar words, and carnal activities.

Easton’s allure, his intoxicating scent, all the emotion…just everything seemed to reach a deeper part of Grant, and he was greedy for more.

“I really like that crass mouth of yours.”


Kara's Review

5 out of 5 stars

The Hookup is a short story by Kindle Alexander. A quick tryst between a hot lawyer and a sexy sailor left me fulfilled and satisfied. It was a fast read but it was full of sexiness, emotion and humor!


Goodreads – “The Hookup is a very quick novella that was steamy and so hot that you will be in danger of being burnt”
SiKReviews – “A sweet book about a couple who spice up their marriage in a unique way”
Goodreads – “Kindle Alexander never lets you down when reading about the men in their stories.” 






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 Kindl
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.

Kara's Review

5 out of 5 stars

Take A Number is Amy Daws’ newest laugh out loud, sexy, sweet and addicting fake romance! It can be read as a standalone, but if you’ve read Next In Line and One Moment Please you have met Dean. Scruffy, glasses wearing, sharp dressing, smart and funny, Dean. Seriously, this man! Only Dean could say inappropriate things and still be endearing. I knew his story was going to be freaking gold and I was right. This might be Amy’s sexiest, funniest book so far and that’s saying something! Dean invested in Norah’s bakery. He goes in there for her famous croinuts and even works from there. It has nothing to do with his attraction to her. At all. He can’t help staring at her and flirting with her and saying inappropriate things. It’s just who he is. He’s smooth, put together and laid back. Norah has been working pretty much her entire life to fulfill her dream of owning a bakery. And now she’s about to own two and eventually franchise. She never really had time to date or have fun. Her mother is pressuring her to give her grandbabies but Norah just wants to bake and work. Not have a relationship. But she needs a fake date to her parents’ anniversary party and Dean is just the guy. Turns out he needs a favor in return, a date to Kate’s wedding. It’s the perfect solution. Fake date for a few weeks. Norah even has rules and a list. Dean loves how uptight she is, but he wants her to loosen up and have some fun. Fun makes her nervous and sweaty and she can’t believe how calm Dean always is! It’s really annoying. Dean invites Norah to the joint bachelor/bachelorette party out of town. Together for the weekend. One bed. What can go wrong? Norah realizes rules were meant to be broken and Dean doesn’t stand a chance at resisting her. Fake sexing for the win! They can do this, they are friends and business partners (kind of) and adults. But what happens when Norah wants more and Dean doesn’t think he can give it to her? Will he let the only woman who’s ever made him feel alive slip through his fingers? Oh. My. Lord. Dean! Seriously, good God that man is fine! I love everything about him from his glasses to his loud outfits to his sharp tongue. It was a pleasure to watch the player fall. And Norah is perfect for him! She isn’t immune to his charms but she’s not falling at his feet and swooning like all the other women. She’s strong, independent, gorgeous and knows what she wants out of life. Together they are the perfect fit! Overall, I laughed the entire time, got butterflies, had to fan myself and cried! The perfect romance!

“God, you’re a pig. You look so put together and professional, and then you open your mouth and ruin everything.”

“Some people find it charming.”

“My cookies have been well taken care of recently, so why the hell would I want to dip them in someone else’s milk?”

“It’s all that stupid flirting you did with me in the bakery, back when I was Luke Danes and you were Lorelai Gilmore.”

“Wait…I thought I was Luke.”

“No, I’m the bakery owner, I’m Luke.”

“Why do I have to be the girl?”

“I think we should talk first.”

“Kate and Lynsey warned me this was something boyfriends had to do a lot.”

“This is a disaster,” I groan and turn to prop my elbows on the bar. “Can I get another champagne, please?”

Dean sidles up next to me as the bartender fills my glass. “What’s up, sugar? I think your dad likes me.”

I pin him with a warning look. “If you add tits to the end of that sugar, your balls must have a death wish.”

“Why so cheery?” Dean asks, hunching over the bar to sip his brown liquor out of a rocks glass. “Did your mother give you a puppy again? That Elaine.”

“My mother invited Nathaniel here tonight,” I state flatly.

“The perfect teeth guy?”


“So, what’s the big deal?”

I pin him with an accusing look. “She gave him the impression I was here for him. Like I was some lonely sack who couldn’t get a date even if I wanted to. Jesus, this is embarrassing.”

“Relax.” Dean turns to face the party and rests his elbows behind him like he doesn’t have a care in the world. “We’ll just have to break some of your rules.”

“What do you mean?” I grab a nut from the bowl on the bar and chew on it nervously.

“Well, if you want this guy to steer clear, then a little PDA might be in order.”

“What kind of PDA?” If he says kissing, I’ll spontaneously combust.

Dean seems to read my mind and rolls his eyes. “Relax, sugar cake, I mean a little…affection. Maybe we dance. Maybe I put my arms around your waist or play with your hair a little. Or maybe we get practically pornographic, and I waffle your fingers.” He laughs casually. “Something to show your mother this Nate guy doesn’t have a chance.”

I nod thoughtfully as I process what Dean’s just said. He mentioned touching me so casually like it’s no big deal. I suppose it isn’t since he seems to flirt with anything that walks. But I’ve been out of the game for a while now, and I can count on one hand the number of people I’ve been affectionate with, and even those were years ago. Is this really something I can pull off?

“Norah, drink the rest of that champagne. It’s going to be fine.”

I close my eyes, letting his words sink in while feeling anything but fine. “Okay, just promise you won’t try to kiss me. I’m barely holding it together as it is, and if I have to worry about you breaking the ultimate rule, I won’t survive this night.” I tip the rest of the champagne into my mouth.

“Relax, I won’t tongue thrust you in front of all your parents’ friends. I’m a mountain manwhore, but I draw the line at lip raping.”

Blog Tour, Reviews & Excerpt – I Promise You, Ilsa Madden-Mills 

October 15, 2020 By

“Another touchdown for Ilsa Madden-Mills! It’s glittery sports romance perfection.” —Tia Louise, USA TODAY Bestselling Author

I Promise You, an all-new sweet and sexy, new adult, sports romance from Wall Street Journal bestselling author Ilsa Madden-Mills is available now!

Dillon McQueen: Babe. I promise. You want me. Serena Jensen: Um, who are you?

There’s a legend at Waylon University: the first girl you kiss freshman year at the bonfire party is the one you’ll never forget. She’ll crawl under your skin and never leave. She’ll spark a passion so fierce you’ll burn the world down to possess her.

You might even put a ring on it.

As in all things with fate, timing is everything. That kiss can go horribly wrong. She might run in the opposite direction. And boy, did Serena run.

Dillon is Waylon’s hotshot quarterback with something to prove. All he wants is to graduate and make it to the NFL. What he doesn’t need is to finally meet the mystery girl he kissed at the bonfire freshman year. Isn’t it enough that she’s haunted his dreams for more than a thousand nights?

Fate laughs in his face when he runs into the quirky girl at the Piggly Wiggly. Surrounded by his entourage, he’s got all the Oreos in his cart; she gets revenge by buying every six-pack of his favorite beer.

Obviously, that legend is a curse. She’s not his type and hates him. Worst of all, how can she not remember him when she left a Serena-shaped hole in his heart for the past three years?

So why can’t he stop trying to win her?

Will this quarterback score the girl or make the biggest fumble of his life?

Kara's Review

5 out of 5 stars

I Promise You is the newest standalone in the Waylon University books. I can’t get enough of Ilsa’s books, her heroes or her heroines. I’m addicted to them and I’ve stopped being surprised that every book I read of hers becomes my favorite. Every leading man steals my heart and every leading lady kicks butt and takes names. We’ve met Dillon before and his story is everything I wanted it to be and more! It’s emotional, silly, fun, awkward, sexy, aggravating and a little sad at times. There’s a legend about the person you kiss at the freshman bonfire. Dillon fell for it and the mystery girl. But he never saw her again until three years later. Now it’s his mission to get her to pay attention to him. To see him. To want him like he wants her. It’s a promise, and he never forgets a promise. Serena isn’t about to fall for his charms. Or his sexy jawline. Or his abs. Nope. Been there done that has the baggage to prove it. But man is Dillon relentless. He shows up at her house. Keeps running into her on campus. It’s like fate is helping him out. Dillon is usually so smooth with women. He never has to work hard. He’s a football player and he’s good looking, girls just fall at his feet. But Serena isn’t swayed by his status. And he can’t seem to say the right things. He gets awkward and stammers and can’t get it right. But it’s endearing and sweet and shows Serena the real him. Is it possible to fall for someone after one kiss? To find your forever with one look? Oh man. This story! Dillon and Serena have so much in common and that makes them more vulnerable to each other, but it makes them more real. You can’t hide that kind of connection. My heart was breaking for him and the tears were streaming down my face. But he also made me laugh out loud and want to give him hugs, and pat his head and say “bless his heart.” Serena is strong, driven and trying to forget her past. They are both a little broken, but a lot hopeful. Overall, I loved it. I laughed, cried, swooned, cried again and smiled a lot. Dillon just makes me happy!

“Do you like me, you know, as a person? Check yes or no.” He squints at me as if dreading the answer.

He is irresistible.

“I check yes” I feel like a twelve-year-old talking to the popular guy.

He exhales. “Thank you, Jesus.”

“I can’t believe I just said that. I can’t get anything right with you. Kill me now.”

Oh. He’s getting it right. He’s part smooth charmer, part uncertain college by, and it ticks all my boxes. Help.

Put the D in me, football player.


Sandra's Review


I Promise You is Ilsa Madden-Mills’ newest sports romance. You can read as a standalone but I do recommend reading I Dare You, I Bet You, and I Hate You since they are all connected to the Waylon University football team. Like I said though, you don’t have to but I promise you, you will want to afterwards. I was first introduced to Dillon in I Bet You and I was so excited when I read he was getting his own book.

Three years. That’s a long time to think about one kiss. With a total stranger in the dark next to a bonfire. Three years of wondering what her name was. Where she was. What she was doing now. Did she graduate? Was she with someone else? Did she even remember him? She ran off and never looked back. He looked for her. And now, three years later he sees her. He wasn’t sure if it was really her until he really saw her. He should have known from the way his body reacted to her in the store. She was a woman who didn’t even know him and he liked that. She was a woman who hated him from the start but there was something lingering between them. Still, she didn’t want him. Not then and not now. The legend about the bonfire was bullshit or was it…

Serena didn’t want to like him. She really didn’t. He was an egotistical jock with an harem. She didn’t have time for that shit. Her life was crazy enough without a hot AF player getting in the way. Her plan was to stay away but fate had other plans, or her boss did assigning her to following the football team for the Gazette. It also didn’t help that he was actually kinda sweet and shy in his own. Talks are surprising. Fun is had. Chemistry is fire. Promises are made. Will they be broken like her heart was before him?

I love them! Serena is fucking hilarious and she loves Oreos! She is my kinda girl. Funny, smart, witty, and sarcastic. Dillon is just a big softie when you really get to know him. He is also funny, smart, and sweet even if he makes dumb decisions. Together, their banter is the best. Their connection is amazing. They just made me laugh, tear up, flush, and laugh some more. They definitely have their work cut out for them though. It’s a perfect addition to the series.

P.S. I ♥️ Nana!


“Know what I’m thinking?” I ask.

“That I’m irresistible—”

“Ha. I’m thinking you’d have a hard time keeping up with me.” Yeah. I just said that.

“I’m hard, alright.” He lowers his gaze, his top teeth tugging at his bottom lip. I burst out laughing. “And people say romance is dead!”

“Call me Mr. Darcy if you want.” He does a weird bow, then puts his hand over his heart. “‘You have bewitched me, body and soul.’”

I burst out laughing. “Nice quote, but your curtsey needs work.”

“Hand over the hat, buddy.”



The kiss burns a hole right through me and blood rushes to my groin. I’m in over my head—Who cares?—and I groan, deepening our connection. My hands slide down her cheeks, her throat, then to her arms at her sides. Our joined breaths mingling, I trace my thumbs over the rapid pulse in her wrists. My head swims with images of her body draped on top of me— A cry comes from her as she breaks away from our kiss. “Jerk! Don’t do that. I don’t know you!” “You liked it, babe.”  “What? No.”  “I’m Dillon.” “Um, I don’t care. Step away.” “What’s your name? You got a number?” Dillon McQueen does not give up easily. When he sees what he wants, he goes after it. He also sometimes talks about himself in the third person. “Are you a freshman? I play football. Quarterback.” Usually that’s enough to catch a girl’s interest.  She shakes her head, looking almost surprised as she touches her lips briefly. I think she mutters pigskin-toting Casanova. Then, she flips around.   “No, wait! Don’t go!” I say, reaching out for her, but she’s gone, daring one look over her shoulder as she disappears into the crowd of people.  I take off after her, navigating through the throng, jostling into dancers. One of them, a big barrel-chested guy, shoves at me when I bump into him. I fall on my ass. Heart pounding, I scramble back up, dirt and grass on me as I dart through the crowd and look around. My height gives me a decent vantage point, but she’s vanished.  Off in the distance, the football guys hoot my name, then chant Venus over and over. Well, hell. The bonfire got me good. She’s gone. Legend 1, Dillon 0.

Lacey Black’s Grip is a second-chance, surprise-baby contemporary romance written in K. Bromberg’s Driven World project!


Mack I live to race. It’s in my blood–the smell of dirt and gasoline, the fast cars, the screaming fans. I was the king of a small track in Missouri with the world at my fingertips. I even had the girl, until a call came from the infamous Colton Donavan. I had a choice to make: my dream or the woman I loved. I couldn’t have both.

When an unexpected surprise shows up on my doorstep in the form of a baby, there’s only one woman I trust enough to help me. Lena Stanley, the one I left behind. But being in close proximity to her reminds me of what we used to have, and what I still want. Her. Lena The day he walked away to chase his dream was the hardest day of my life, but I powered through. I could never ask Mack to choose between me and the opportunity of a lifetime. That’s why I pushed him toward the latter, despite the heartache it caused. Now, he needs my help. The problem is it’s hard to keep old feelings buried. Despite my best efforts, our connection is too powerful to deny. However, as our short time together draws to a close, I have another difficult choice to make. Only this time, I’m not just walking away from him, but his son too.

Sandra's Review


Grip is Lacey Black’s newest standalone and it’s part of K. Bromberg’s Driven World. I was so excited when I found out she was going to be part of this world. For her. I actually haven’t read the Driven series but I have always wanted to. Too many books, so little time!

Three years. Three years ago Lena watched the love of her life walk away. Toward his dreams. She was so happy for him. It was everything he ever wanted but she couldn’t go with him. So she stayed in Missouri while he went to LA. And now, she was off to LA to help him. She didn’t know what she was walking into but she knew in her heart that she had to go. She thought that maybe this is what she needed to move on. The last thing she expected when she got to his house was a baby. A newborn. A three week old boy named Oliver.

Mack hated walking away from her three years ago. And when suddenly he was a father, she was the only one he could trust to help him. He needed her. When he saw her again he knew he also wanted her. He always has but those thoughts were dormant since he couldn’t do anything about it. She didn’t want this life. He couldn’t do this on his own, taking care of a baby. They decide on six weeks. She would stay for six weeks. He knew from that moment that it wouldn’t be enough.

Mack and Lena’s relationship is complicated and beautiful at the same time. I felt their connection from start to finish. They are so at ease with other and nervous too. They don’t want to complicate things even more but they also want to give in. It’s so much. The traveling together. The taking care of a baby together. Laughing, learning, and the races! So exciting. Lena loves the excitement of the races. It’s fun when it’s six weeks but can it be forever?

Aw!! I absolutely LOVED this story!! The slow burn. The races. Oliver. I seriously cried a dozen times!! I laughed. Hard. I want to slap a few people. It was awesome. Oliver is not just in the background. He is Mack’s world. It makes Mack even hotter! Damn…him in a fire suit on halfway? 🔥🔥. Then there is Lena, she is so sweet, strong, and sexy. I love that they just get each other.

P.S. I want more Fish!! ♥️


“I trust you.” The corner of my mouth turns upward.

“Good. Now, let’s get you in your race car so Oliver can witness his first big Indy race.” I glance down and find the baby sound asleep. Mack snorts. “He’s thrilled, I can tell.”

“Lena!” Fish bellows from the open door of the limo. “Damn, girl. You look positively edible. Have you finally realized you’re with the wrong man yet?” Fish asks, winking and smiling as his best friend growls behind me.

I grip my steering wheel, my hands more at home there than anywhere else. Well, maybe a second to Lena’s body, but a damn close one. This is my element, my drive.


Kara's Review

5 out of 5 stars

Grip is Lacey Black’s newest addition to the Driven World. Grip is a sexy, fun and addicting second chance romance. I love a good second chance romance and Lacey did a perfect job! Mack and Lena were in love and had their whole lives ahead of them. Together. Until Mack gets a call from Colton Donovan and the chance at his dream. But Lena can’t go with her and leave her life. Mack has to follow his dream alone. Three years later and Mack needs someone he trusts to help him. Lena gets a call from Mack for help. She hasn’t spoken to him in years, but she can’t help but go to LA to help him with whatever he needs. Turns out he has a baby and doesn’t know what to do. Lena agrees to help, but only temporarily. Mack can’t believe how good she looks. He never stopped thinking about her but he has to keep his hands to himself. If he touches her he’ll never be able to let her go. There’s nothing sexier than watching Lena with his son. Mack still has a job to do. He needs to race and now his son, Oliver, and Lena are with him. He never thought it would mean this much to have them with him.


Grip is written in New York Times Bestselling author K. Bromberg’s Driven World, which is one of two KB Worlds projects. With over 100 authors, who were selected by and are working with K. Bromberg, these stories are fan fiction at its finest—and sexiest. Devoted fans of the Driven and Everyday Heroes series will have the opportunity to revisit their favorite characters and settings. Lacey Black is returning to the Driven racetrack and putting her spin on this smoking hot, fast-paced and addictive world. You can find out more about K. Bromberg and the KB Worlds at
