Sandra's Review

5 out of 5 stars

It’s our Secret is the newest book by W. Winters. It’s the first novel I have read by Willow and I will definitely be reading more. I read it in one day and didn’t want to put it down. I don’t want to spoil anything so this should be fast.

Five years ago things changed for the both of them. And now, they are both starting college. The minute he saw her, he wanted her. The minute she saw him, she knew he was trouble. He was not part of her plan. He was a distraction. A sinfully hot distraction. One that somehow saw her. And she saw him. Two broken souls. One connection full of chemistry. She had a secret. He had a past.

Ok. That’s all I can say about that. I will say, my god, I love a shameless flirt. And a rugby player even if it’s just a hobby. I also love a badass heroine. Together, they are sexy, raw, and fun. I really think it was fate that had me read this book! I have been wanting to read a W. Winters book forever but just haven done it until a last minute schedule change. And rugby is the sport Dean plays? I met my husband in HS while he played rugby and do so for twenty years! It’s not a sport you read much about. There is another reason but I won’t get into that. Anyway, I am excited to read more Willow books!


He’s the type of man who gives you chills while making everything else that matters hot.

Dean could be my personal heroin. And I want a hit. I want it hard and fast.

“I bet I already know exactly what you were thinking,” I immediately retort, which only makes him scratch the stubble on his jaw, his smile ever-present.

“What do you think?” he asks me, and I arch a brow to scold him.

“Thoughts like that don’t belong in the classroom.”

“Where else are we going to find a desk?” he asks me, and I can’t help how my thighs clench and my chest and cheeks heat with a slow, burning blush.




From romance author Willow Winters comes a USA Today best-selling emotionally gripping, standalone, romantic suspense.

Allison: It was only a little lie.
That’s how stories like these get started.

But with every lie I told, he saw through it.
I think in his heart he knew I was broken; he felt my pain as if it was his.

And that’s what changed everything.
He’s the reason it all fell apart.

Sometimes it’s a single moment that alters everything in existence.
Sometimes it’s the fall of dominoes, lined up in a pretty little row and designed so that each one will cause more and more pain.

In a single day, it all changed, and there’s no way to take it back.
I didn’t know what would happen. But secrets and lies ruin everything and I should have known better.

And for the first time in… I don’t know how long, I wish I could take it back. I’d take every bit of it back if I could just be with him again.

“I was captivated from the very beginning, and I couldn’t let go until the very end. Winters wove an outstanding tale, which has an even better message within its pages.” – Kendra, Reads and Treats

It’s Our Secret was originally released Jan 2018.
This edition is re-edited and extended.

Release Day Blitz & Reviews – Wicked Billionaire, Sawyer Bennett 

August 4, 2020 By

Wicked Billionaire (Wicked Horse Vegas, Book #9)
Sawyer Bennett
Release Date: August 4, 2020


As the prince of a luxury hotel empire, I am as close to American royalty as one can get. I grew up accustomed to a certain lifestyle. One where people give me what I desire and anything, or anyone, else can be bought. Everyone wants a piece of me, yet no one is actually deserving of my time.

That changes when Bailey Robbins, the smoking hot housekeeper in one of my hotels, catches my attention. Sure, she has curves for days but it’s her smart mouth I can’t help but be intrigued by. I may have avoided relationships all my life, but something about her makes me want to introduce her to my world.

The darker, wicked side of Declan Blackwood.

Sandra's Review

5 out of 5 stars

Wicked Billionaire is the eighth full-length novel in the Wicked Horse Vegas series by Sawyer Bennett. There are also a few novellas in between. You can read each book as standalone but I do recommend reading the series since they are smokin’ hot! I have been following Wicked Horse since the original Wicked Horse series. I can’t get enough! Declan Blackwood has been a supporting character through the series, I have been waiting for his story and it was so worth the wait!

Declan was the heir to the Blackwood empire. He didn’t have time for relationships, complications, or even golf most days. He only had time to indulge at the Wicked Horse for a quick f*ck a few times a week. It was all he wanted. Sex. No cuddling. No after-thought. He never went back for seconds. Then he saw her. He was intrigued by the resort’s newest maid. She was beautiful and exotic. That was all he knew about her but there was something there and when she spoke back to him? He wanted her even more but he couldn’t go there after hiring her as his Personal Assistant. He didn’t mix business with pleasure but there was always loopholes, right?

A proposal. Bailey needed this job. She had shit to take care of thanks to her ex-husband. She needed this job to make a life for herself and sleeping with the boss would be a terrible idea. She finds that out real fast then he comes up with a proposal she didn’t want to refuse. She needed this. She deserved it. To keep sex and business separate. Wicked Horse was their playground. Blackwood Resorts was their protection. Easy, right?

Hahahaha! Ok…

Holy. Hotness!! The thing I love about this series is that each has it own kink and of course storyline. It’s never boring. I always want more. With Declan and Bailey is about trust, family, and limits. Bailey doesn’t give a shit about Declan’s money and Declan feels that from the very beginning and I loved that. Bailey is a badass, she knows her worth, smart, sweet, and funny. At first Bailey thinks he is an asshole but soon learns he has layers. He is so much more than an arrogant, hot AF businessman. He is sweet, funny, and definitely has a bit alpha in him. Together, their banter and sexy times are amazing!


“I knew this would end up being a bad idea,” he murmurs. He speaks so softly I’m not sure if I heard him correctly.

“You used to call me Miss Robbins to put distance between us. Remind me of my place. But now it’s just kind of sexy when you do it.”

“What’s so funny?” I ask.

“It’s just… have you ever eaten a hot dog for dinner?” she asks.

I give her a faux glare, her question bordering on impertinent and an indirect slam at my upbringing. Secretly, though, I find it hilarious. “Of course I’ve had hot dogs,” I say imperiously. “But only if we had Grey Poupon in the fridge.”

Bailey snort laughs. “Good one.”


Kara's Review

5 out of 5 stars

Wicked Billionaire is the eighth book in the Wicked Horse Vegas series by Sawyer Bennett. I have read all of the Wicked Horse books and I just love this series! If Sawyer keeps writing them, I’ll keep reading them! This is Declan’s story. We met him in Wicked Secret as one of August’s friends and I knew his story was going to be good! Declan Blackwood runs his family hotel empire. He’s gorgeous, rich and doesn’t bother with women for more than a night or two. He’s jerky and doesn’t sugar coat anything. He grew up at boarding school and he rarely sees or talks to his family. He can’t be bothered with every day tasks or speaking to the woman who cleans his suite. Until he notices how pretty she is and she actually dares to talk to him. He realizes she might be the perfect personal assistant. If he can stop looking at her beauty and her curves. Bailey needs this job, but when she’s asked to be Declan’s assistant, it’s even better for her. More money and more opportunities. Now she just needs to stop looking at her boss like he’s her next meal. Declan has never crossed the line with an employee, but with Bailey, he doesn’t think he can stay away. He has the perfect idea. They can only be together at the Wicked Horse. Show her around, see if she likes it and be able to get his hands on her. They can keep it separate from their working relationship. Right? Until it becomes more for both of them. Until they want to see where their relationship can go. Until they start meaning so much more to each other. I loved Declan and Bailey! He’s used to being in control and getting what he wants, but Bailey actually turns on his body and his mind. He wants to talk to her, be with her. Ask her questions. As he learns more about her, he likes her even more. Bailey can’t believe how nice Declan is. He’s thoughtful, caring and smart. They complemented each other perfectly! Overall, I loved it! I laughed, cried, cheered and smiled a lot. Declan and Bailey are one of my favorite couples from the Wicked Horse books!

Restraint is the first book in the Mason Family series by the very talented, Adriana Locke. I read Restraint as a short story in the back of her book, Cross two years ago and I wanted more!! When Adriana announced she was giving us just that I was so excited and for it to be the start of a new series, I was super excited. She did a fantastic job of connecting the families together.


It was supposed to be a one-night stand. It was also supposed to be just a three-day vacation forced upon Blaine but her overbearing brothers who know her well. She is a workaholic who needed a much needed break. She had no idea that the vacation was going to change her life. It all started in an airport…


Holt was late but he didn’t give one fuck once he saw her. She was beautiful, smart, and witty and he wanted her. He wanted to take her to dinner and then have her for dessert, but he was shot down. He didn’t even get her name. That was until fate stepped in and he saw his mystery woman a few hours later. He wasn’t going to let her go without a fight. Luckily, she gave in and they had one hot night together. He didn’t want just a one night stand. She was not a one-night stand type of woman. And when fate stepped in again, it gave him an idea. One week. That’s it. It was perfect. They were both too busy for more. One thousand miles apart.


One week. It’s a week of all kinds of ups and downs. What will happen when their time was up?


This was so worth the wait!! I love these two. Their banter. Their independence. Their connection. Their families. I love Adriana’s family series’. They are so much fun and I can’t wait for the next book. All these brothers are have different personalities and ways of life. It’s going to kick ass.




“There has to be a bad side to you.”

“Oh,” I say with a low, rough chuckle, “I can be as bad as you want me to be.”

“That’s not what I meant,” she says, her hand waving toward her pinked cheeks. 

I grin. “By the way you’re fanning your face, I think that’s exactly what you meant.”


“What are you doing?” I ask. 

“Coming after you.” 

“You most certainly will come after me,” I say with a raised brow.


“We talk like friends and kiss like lovers,” I say wistfully.


Blaire Gibson knows better than to have one-night stands.

She prides herself on her decision-making skills. It’s the one asset that has never let her down. But even the best thinkers have weaknesses. Hers is a delicious business mogul with a quick tongue. Unfortunately for her, that tongue is good for more than just talking.

Holt Mason doesn’t need to justify anything to anyone.

He wants Blaire. He pursues Blaire. And he gets Blaire because that’s how his life works.

Until it doesn’t.

What begins as a single night in a hotel room spirals into an unusual agreement. As late nights provide the space to trade secrets and walls come tumbling down, more is shared than just pillow talk.

They both should’ve known better. They should’ve shown restraint. Because when guards are dropped, hearts get hurt.

*RESTRAINT is a brand-new standalone romance from USA Today Bestselling author Adriana Locke.




About the Author:
USA Today and Washington Post bestselling author Adriana Locke lives and breathes books. After years of slightly obsessive relationships with the flawed bad boys created by other authors, Adriana has created her own.

She resides in the Midwest with her husband, sons, and two dogs. She spends a large amount of time playing with her kids, drinking coffee, and cooking. You can find her outside if the weather’s nice and there’s always a piece of candy in her pocket.

Release Day, Review & Excerpt – Sends of Murder, Reily Garrett

August 3, 2020 By


Witness Darby Loughlin shifts from hunted to hunter in this spine-chilling thriller of murder, greed, and romance.


On a secluded mountaintop, Darby Loughlin witnesses her mentor’s death during an afternoon hike. It’s murder. She knows it but has no proof. The killer isn’t present, nor does he leave traceable evidence.

 Teaming up with former police officer turned private investigator Nick Tucker is a distraction and unwelcome necessity. Unfortunately, she lacks the skills and tools needed to trace the camouflaged assassin. 

Straddling the law has never been a problem since her moral compass points true north. This time, however, she must work with authorities to gain insight into a world to which she doesn’t belong.

As the snarl of lies and deceptions unfold, Darby and her K9 partner struggle to stay ahead of the killer who’s selected her as his next victim.




Chapter One

That nagging itch, the dark harbinger of malignant intent with no basis in reality, dusted the surface between Darby’s shoulder blades.

Beside her, Boots romped along the trail, his doggy grin and sweeping tail signifying the innocence and joy of frolicking in the woods.

“Don’t be so hard on yourself, Darby. The semester’s over. You’re off for the summer and don’t have to worry about GPAs and scholarships. We’re hiking one of the best trails in the Appalachians, and your best friend is by your side.” Basil nodded to the golden mix sniffing the entrance of a small tunnel.”

 “I wouldn’t get too curious, there, boy. You may not like what comes out.” Darby nudged her dog’s nose away from the burrow.

Her mentor was right, but an undefined menace prickled the hair at her nape, not mellowed by the thought of crystal-clear water ahead. The small lake normally offered a visual respite from worries and obligations.

Normal excursions rendered the rich hodgepodge of scents that lulled her into a unique calm: resin from a broken pine limb, damp moss, wild honeysuckle, and the distinct odor of filtered wood smoke from a distant home.

“Basil. Something isn’t right.”

“Explain.” He tilted his head to the side in consideration.

“Look up. That doesn’t look normal to me, but you’re the cloud expert.” Darby gestured toward the sky as they stepped from the forest’s edge. Perspiration dotted her brow, cooled by the light breeze.

The steep downslope ahead met the water’s edge of a small lake—one in which Boots liked to play.

 “Looks like my partner is running an unscheduled operation today. Damn it. I told him I intended to collect samples.”

It existed in any diligent scientist’s nature to measure the results and consequences of his experiments. Basil understood that every action elicited an effect. Over the months of testing, he’d remained determined to evaluate each.

Sharpness of the water’s surface image reflecting the small fulminating clouds overhead attested to a subtle paradox with the scents of budding flowers and musty earth. It was nature’s first warning to creatures who survived by instinct.

Even as they watched the cloud pattern change, its center darkened, transforming the local cap to that of a boil. As it matured, the bulls-eye appeared heavier, as if the pus-filled center developed into a head ready to spill its contents.

 “What the hell is that?” It appeared heaven’s Cyclops watched her every move. She wasn’t paranoid by nature, but leaving home as a teenager developed an ingrained sense of vigilance.

 “Don’t worry, kiddo. You won’t melt.”

Below them, the first raindrops stippled the lake’s far side, disrupting its glass surface and the scenic view.

The sharp decline riddled with broken limbs and wet leaves would challenge an experienced young hiker. Basil’s graying hair and cautious movements belied his forty-plus years.

“I hear drones.” The tremble in her voice lacked rational explanation.

Her mentor’s inherent trust in others always struck a discordant chord in her. She had an ample supply of faith for those who’d earned it, which was limited to her golden retriever and her mentor—whose knuckles cracked as he slip-skidded down over fallen limbs and wet leaves.

 “Yeah, I hear ‘em. It seems my partner has no regard for our working relationship.”

Impulse prompted her to sidestep until cocooned by the woodland’s embrace. An elevated vantage point prevented her from gauging his expression, but his tone conveyed confusion.

Her pulse kicked into high gear. She’d spent a lifetime learning to monitor her surroundings for threats. Internal alarms blared to contradict the peace normally found on their infrequent hikes.

The first drop of rain filtering through overhead branches made her flinch. Instead of turning her face up to revel in its cleansing properties, she tugged up her jacket collar. Her backpack would help keep her dry, but her gut churned with uneasiness.

From the slope’s base, Basil cast a wary glance upward. “You two stay on the ridge. I’ll be up in a minute.”

 “What are you hoping to find? Your job is to make it rain, not test soil samples.”

“Proving a theory. Something’s killing local wildlife by seemingly natural means. However, it’s not natural. Whatever it is, has been sporadic and coordinated with specific parameters I’m tracking.” Shifting his backpack to center its weight coincided with arthritic knuckles cracking above the steady drizzle.

“Is that why you weren’t keen on me tagging along today?” The sooner they returned to his vehicle, the sooner she’d take a deep breath.

Basil paused, the look thrown over his shoulder revealing an uncharacteristic inner turmoil. “You have a keen sense of observation, and this corresponds to your bailiwick. Look at the dead grass and burned foliage around you. As a young botanist, what would you make of it?” Bending down, he placed a specimen of shriveled weed along with a small dirt sample in the baggie extracted from the side of his backpack.

The sound of another drone expanded the frosty knot blooming in her chest. It’s just a little rain, wimp.

Despite waking up to a beautiful sunny day, she couldn’t shake the sense of gloom enfolding her like a shroud. She’d cast off that darker persona born of a homeless teenager huddling in a cave against the cold of night.

He was right about the shriveled foliage. Years spent hiking and enjoying the beauty nature offered had never revealed the likes of what surrounded her.

One more year and she’d have her master’s degree in botany. Yet the pattern of destruction confounded her determination to define its source.

“I hear more drones… What kind do you use to seed clouds?” It still amazed her that science had progressed to the point of forcing rain with specific chemicals.

Basil grinned. “Always curious. That’s good. I can show you when we get back to the truck. I have a picture on my phone of the new model we use for small areas. My assistant and partner are touting this prototype as the next great advance in weather enhancement.”

From his pack, Basil pulled several plastic tubes and took samples of mud and water from the bank’s edge, taking time to swipe moisture from his face.

The distant whine of motors drew her attention to the discordant notes grating her nerves and the boiling masses that tumbled and seethed in anger. She shrank farther back for cover. Boots licked her hand and whined when she sat. “It’s okay, boy. Basil says it’s his partner’s idea of a joke.”

She didn’t find it funny.

The unusual pattern of cloud cover remained small and tight, as if nature created a storm for a specific, localized area. The speed at which it built hinted at a distinct purpose, giving thought and direction to an inanimate collection of condensed water vapor.

A short distance away, blue expanse surrounded the unbroken and strange configuration.

“Basil? Look.” The eerie premonition taking shape in her mind squeezed her chest.

He’d just capped a specimen bottle and straightened when thick drops of water gave way to small icicle-shaped missiles. A faint rainbow of fluorescence encompassed the air within the shower’s borders.

“Ahh, shit!” The plastic bottle slipped from his hand and bobbed in the shallow water. Frantic sweeping of his fingers against his cheeks preceded yanking his light jacket up to cover his head. “Run, damn it. Get out of here!”

Streaks of crimson trickled over his hands to splash in the water

Sandra's Review

5 out of 5 stars

Seeds of Murder is the third book in the Moonlight & Murder series by Reily Garrett. Each can be read as standalone but I recommend reading the series so you can get to know the couples that previous fell in love. Each book is a different couple but they are intertwined and turn into a family of sorts. If you read Critical Tangent then you have met Nick Tucker, PI. It’s his time to see what Nolan and Coyote have been through with their ladies. Trouble with a capital T.

Darby and her mentor, Basil were out hiking and collecting samples for research when they were under attack. Basil unfortunately doesn’t make it but tells Darby to find Nick, the only man he can trust to seek justice. To find the truth of what has been going on with cloud-seeding and unexplained animal deaths. Darby seeks Nick out and at first the PI doesn’t want anything to do with it until she tells him how important Basil was to her and especially when it comes down to a life or death situation. He is a protector and he wants anyone near her. So, he enlists people he can trust. Right away, the three women look like they are up to something. And with Keiki and Sabine’s pasts, it’s not good. Nick knows he is going to get his ass kicked by their SO, Nolan and Coyote. Can the six of them work together to solve a murder and solve the case of the dying animals?

I am really enjoying this series. It’s different from my usual books. It’s suspense, crime, and science within the love story. It’s a build-up while working on finding a killer. They can’t afford a distraction and while solving the case they get to know each other. Darby might only be twenty-one but she has lived a hard life that made her grow up fast. I loved Nick and Darby’s banter. It’s light with a mix of flirt and laughter. And when the three women are tighter? Forget about it. They are so funny and for sure know how to find trouble. They are all independent, strong, and want to help out wherever they can even if the men tell them to stay put.

Overall…it’s a book full of suspense, laughter, love, and friendship. I am soooo hoping there is another book with a certain character!


“Can it, Watson. You’re in over your head.” The hissed warning came with a hand pulling her to her feet.

“That would make you Sherlock. I don’t think you fit the bill. He was shorter, hmm, maybe six feet, thinner, wore a gray traveling cloak…”

“You calling me fat?” He snorted as he dusted himself off.

Okay. Now I know what perfection looks like. And it doesn’t wear a badge.

Nick whispered in her ear. “You’re not alone anymore. You have friends. You have me.”

Release Day Blitz & Reviews – Can’t Fight It, Lacey Black & Kaylee Ryan

July 30, 2020 By

Title: Can’t Fight It
Series: Fair Lakes #3
Authors: Kaylee Ryan & Lacey Black
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: July 30, 2020


From the moment she showed up on my doorstep, I knew our lives would never be the same.
I felt it deep in my soul that she was going to change us forever. I didn’t
know how, but I knew she was important. I tried to maintain the distance
between us, but it was too strong to fight.
With each passing day, I saw a future I never planned flash before my eyes—one with a fairytale
ending. The only problem is that someone wanted to take that away from me, away
from us. I just found her, and no way am I letting her go that easily.  Hollis is family, my family, and I’ll do
whatever it takes to protect her.
Colton Callahan wasn’t what I expected. I was in desperate need of a fresh start,
ready for something new, but all it took was one look at those intoxicating
blue eyes for me to reevaluate everything. I tried to stay detached, but
something about him just called to me.
It took no time at all for me to fall. Not only for the man I share a living space with,
but also his son, Milo. The problem is my past is not too far behind, trailing
behind me and slowly catching up. When it finally does, I have a choice to
make—run away, leaving them behind, or stay and fight, potentially putting them
in danger. Either way, I could lose it all.

Can’t Fight It is the third book in the Fair Lakes series by Lacey Black and Kaylee Ryan. I am loving this series and it’s characters. You can read each as standalone but I recommend reading the series since they are amazing! If you read Just Getting Started then you know the beginning of Colt’s story. The newly titled single dad…

Colton knew it was time to take his honorable discharge for the Army after twelve years when he found out his was a father. His son only a month old. And now a few months later, they were making home in a new house and a civilian job at All Fit as a trainer and class instructor. He was making moves to secure a good life for his son, Milo. And with that he decided to rent out his in-law apartment. He was expecting a man named Hollis. Who showed up was a woman named Hollis and he knew from the moment he saw her he was a fucked. She was beautiful, sweet, and would change everything.

Hollis needed a fresh start so went to her Grandma’s hometown of Fair Lakes. It wasn’t California and she loved the small-town. It was the perfect place to start over. What she didn’t expect was him. Her hot AF landlord and cute as a button son. She needed to stay on her side of the wall and work. She was a web designer so she can work from anywhere and hearing Colton talk and sing to Milo made it hard to stay away. It was a fight for sure. Especially after taking him up on his offer of taking his self-defense class at the gym.

Colton and Hollis’s relationship is beautiful, sweet, sexy, and so much fun. It just seemed so easy from the beginning but Hollis was holding back. There was a reason why she wanted to start over. What will happen when Colton finds out that reason?

I loved it!! Lacey and Kaylee is amazing with babies and kids. Seriously. They are not just in the background. They are right there with the main characters. A man holding and taking care of a baby? Swoon!! Really though, the story is full of suspense, love, family, friendships, and laughter. I gave me all the feels!!


“Milo wants you to come.” I’m aware of how desperate I sound right now. She smiles, and it sets my world on fire.

“Oh, Milo wants me to come?” She crosses her arms over her chest and leans against the doorframe.

“That’s what he said. Told me not to come back to the living room unless you had agreed to go.”

I have so many ways to keep her hot and bothered. She isn’t aware that she’s just given me permission to unleash the beast.

“Of course it was about a girl!” Chase hollers. “He knew she liked me!”

“She thought you were cute, like a puppy. Ellie Jacobs was interested in a man, not a boy,” Colton boasts proudly, rubbing his chest.

“Man? You were sixteen. The other one hadn’t even dropped yet,” Chase argues, making everyone laugh.


Kara's Review

5 out of 5 stars

Can’t Fight It is the third book in the Fair Lakes series by the talented duo of Lacey Black and Kaylee Ryan. This series is so much fun! This is Colton, Chase’s brothers story. He’s home from the Army and now has a baby to take care of. He’s trying to do the best he can, a job, a house and now he just needs a roommate. As soon as he sees Hollis, he wants her. And that’s a very bad thing. Right? He can’t get involved with his roommate, that will end badly. But Hollis quickly becomes more than just a roommate. His son, Milo, loves her. His family and friends too. After one taste of her, he can’t stay no anymore. Can they make it work? Will Hollis want to be part of his family? I have a soft spot for a single dad romance and I loved this one! Milo brought them together and he was such a big part of the story. Colton and Hollis’s story was fun, sexy, with a little suspense. Overall, I laughed, got hot and bothered and really enjoyed it!

5 out of 5 stars

Reign is the third and final book in the The Sainthood-Boys of Lowell High series by Siobhan Davis. It can NOT be read as standalone. It’s a complex, intense, hot AF story so if you haven’t started the series…do it now! You won’t want to stop reading once you start. It’s seriously so addicting. I can’t really say much about the story without spoiling anything so it will be fast. 

Harlow and her protective men are ready. Ready to bring down Sinner and The Sainthood. They wanted to bring them down alone but they need to enlist allies. It’s hard to trust anyone with the life they have each endured over the last eighteen years. The only ones they fully trust is each other. Their love is stronger than ever. Hotter than ever. Sweeter than ever. It’s what they need to bring down theses assholes. But will it be enough? Sinner might be a sick fuck but he isn’t stupid. 

OMFG! This series is dark, twisted, swoon-worthy, addicting, and hot AF. I mean, four men with different personalities but all protective? Yum! One woman who is a complete badass queen? Kick ass. Together, these five are raw, they bring out the best in each other. They are only eighteen but so fucking mature. I forget they are in high school. They are living in a world of older men and women. A life nobody should have to endure but they find love within. 


Their love isn’t all rainbows and unicorns. It’s rough, it’s tough, and sometimes it hurts, but I wouldn’t have it any other way, because we’re a team.

“Careful, Saintly. Your crazy is showing.” He smacks my ass. Hard. And I glare at him. 

“Careful, princess. You know what happens when you push my buttons.”

“Starting the party without us, my queen?” he asks, tsking while his eyes drop to where I’m stroking Caz.

Galen’s cell pings, and he cracks up laughing. “Man, he’s pathetic.”

I look into the back seat, grinning. “Darrow is nothing if not predictable.”

“You should meet with him,” Theo says. “Hear what he’s planning.”

“It could be a trap,” Saint suggests.

“Nah.” Galen shakes his head, and waves of dark, silky hair fall into his eyes. He tosses them aside with a flip of his head. “He still thinks I want Lo dead. I can tell him I’m even more bloodthirsty now that I was almost killed in the explosion that was meant for her.”

“Cold.” Saint grins wickedly at his cousin.

“But perfect,” Caz adds.

“Perfect would be his head on a spike,” Saint snarls. “He’s lucky he’s still in one piece after the shit he said to you back there.”

“I was so tempted to slice off his dick,” I admit. “Like, I seriously had to talk myself off that ledge.”

Caz chuckles. “You couldn’t deprive us of that sight. When you chop his cock off, I want a front-row seat.”

I lean back for a knuckle touch. “Deal, dude. Wouldn’t want to deprive you of such quality entertainment.”

Blog Tour & Review – Hate Thy Neighbor, SM Soto

July 30, 2020 By

Roman Banks.
Moody. Foul-mouthed. Jerk.
And the hottest man on the planet.

Hate Thy Neighbor, an all-new rom com filled with witty banter and lots of sexual tension from S.M. Soto is available now!

htn cover

Fresh out of a failed engagement, Olivia Hales is in dire need of a fresh start. Tired of being the charming and accommodating girl that always gets stomped on, she’s determined to change her outlook on life.

When she finds her dream job in a small town in California, she thinks she’s finally found her place in life. That is, until she meets her new neighbor.

Roman Banks.
Moody. Foul-mouthed. Jerk.
And the hottest man on the planet.

At a sprawling six foot five, he was coldly distant and physically intimidating. Not only was her new neighbor a God that was good with his hands, he was also a grade-A jerk. Trapped on the same street, sharing the same space together, they’ve become entrenched in an addictive, ridiculous, never-ending game of insults and pranks that result in the destruction of two perfectly good homes.

The tension between them is as thick as the walls of their houses are thin. Roman’s touch burned like fire even when his words were ice, and both of them will stop at nothing to make the others life hell.

In the midst of the pranks and the hate they harbor for each other, Olivia slowly pulls back the layers of the man next door and finds herself consumed with wanting to fix him and his past. When both enemies start to catch feelings for each other, Olivia finds herself hiding her own secrets, not wanting to lose another man in her life.

Lines are drawn. Strict rules put into place. But that doesn’t stop Olivia from wanting to save the quiet, broody man next door.

They say you’re supposed to love thy neighbor, but that was the furthest emotion she felt when thinking about Roman. Hate was all there was to their relationship. At the very least, that’s what she tried to tell herself.

Hate Thy Neighbor is a full length enemies to lovers standalone.

Sandra's Review

5 out of 5 stars

Hate Thy Neighbor is S.M Soto’s newest enemies to lovers romance. I love her books so I didn’t read the synopsis so all I knew was that it was about neighbors who hated each other and would end up in bed together. Lol. I love a good enemies to lovers romance and this was FANTASTIC. Oh, the hate…

Olivia needed a fresh start so she packed up and moved six hours north to Campbell, CA. She was excited to be on her own. To live her life to the fullest. She bought a fixer-upper and landed a job as a Veterinarian Assistant. She even found that she lives next to a hot AF man who rode a motorcycle. She wasn’t looking for love but nothing wrong with ogling the neighbor, right? Then she meets him and he is a complete asshole. She doesn’t know what she did to piss him off, the rest of the neighbors get his smiles while she gets his bad attitude. She wasn’t one to back down so if he wanted to be a jerk then she can be one too. Fuck him. If he wanted war, then he will get one.

Roman hated her from the moment he saw her by her moving truck. And when she shows up at his door with cake? The hate was all the more real. He knew he should stay away from her but when she is everywhere, he can’t ignore her. He tries. He really does but she keeps getting under his skin. Asking him questions about himself. Telling him about herself. He doesn’t do this. He has plans and she will not be in the way of them. She thinks he is an asshole, well, she has no idea.

Oh man!! These two! Talk about enemies. The pranks. The looks. The tension. You can cut it with a knife. You can feel it through the words on the page. It’s strong. It’s sweet. It’s a slow burn. A fire exploding. I loved it all. It’s not easy but it’s so worth it. I laughed. I got hot and bothered. I cried. I swooned. I cried some more.

P.S. My grandparents raised my dad and uncles in Campbell! I lived there for a few years when I was a child and loved it. I still visit the small suburb town. It’s adorable.

💞 Make sure to get the bonus epilogue!


“God, he’s still glaring at you. I can’t tell if he wants to kill you or bang you.”

“Most likely the former. Definitely not the latter.”

“A guy who looks that good? I wouldn’t mind letting him do both.”

“Hey, Roman, listen, what happened back at the bar, about starting a war—”

I turn on her with a cold smirk. “Oh, no, sweetheart. This means war, baby, and there’s no backtracking now.”

“Anyone ever tell you you’re kind of an asshole?”

Blog Tour & Review – Begin Again, Jennifer Probst

July 29, 2020 By

“Jennifer Probst always gives me that heart-melting romance with the perfect amount of sizzle!”
—Sawyer Bennett, New York Times bestselling author

Begin Again, an all-new stand-alone novella in the Stay series by New York Times bestselling author Jennifer Probst is available now!

begin again cover

Chloe Lake is finally living her dream. As the daughter of the Governor, she’s consistently in the spotlight, and after being dubbed the Most Eligible Bachelorette of NYC, both her career and personal life has exploded. Fortunately, her work as an advocate for animal welfare requires constant publicity and funding, so she embraces her role and plays for the camera—anything for the sake of her beloved rescues.

But when a big case is on the line, she’s faced with the one obstacle she never counted on: the boy who broke her heart is back, and in order to gain justice, they need to work together.

Chloe swears she can handle it until old feelings resurface, and she’s faced with a heartbreaking choice.

Will this time end differently—or are they destined to be only each other’s first love—instead of forever?

Owen Salt fell hard for Chloe when he was a screwed-up kid in college, and spent the next years changing himself into the man his grandfather believed he was capable of. But when his career led him across the country, he knew he needed to leave the woman he loved behind. He’s never forgotten her, but as the new darling of the press, now, she’s way out of his league. When work brings him back to fight for justice by her side, he swears he can handle it.

But he’s never really gotten over his first love—and he wants one more opportunity to prove he’s a man who’s worthy.

Can Owen convince the woman who holds his heart to take a second chance on forever—or is it too late for them both?

Begin Again is a bonus story from the Stay series by Jennifer Probst. I love this series and Owen and Chloe were so great as secondary characters throughout the series and I’m so happy they are finally getting their happily ever after! Begin Again is the perfect second chance romance! Owen and Chloe were young and in love, but Owen knew he had to leave to make something of himself before he was worthy of Chloe’s love. Now he’s back and she’s not just waiting with open arms. He’s willing to do whatever it takes to get her back, but Chloe isn’t sure she can trust her heart to him again. Will Owen show her he’s the man she always thought he would be? Can Chloe let go of the past and follow her heart? I loved this story! Owen is funny, successful and romantic. And he’s not going to go down without a fight. Chloe is smart, stubborn and dedicated to her job. But her heart never moved on. Overall, it was sweet, sexy and fun. I loved seeing everyone again and seeing what they are all up to!
