Sandra's Review

5 out of 5 stars

Dare Me is the second book in the Dare to Try series by Ella Frank & Brooke Blaine. You can NOT read this book without reading Dare You beforehand. I am loving these two. So much!
 
Bash and Kieran’s relationship is complicated to say the least. First of all, Kieran has never felt the kind of pull to a man until Bash came into his life. Bash was a man who is meant to be noticed and Kieran sure noticed. It was all unexpected. Both men don’t know what will happen between them. Bash was only on Chicago on business and when he goes home to Safe Haven he doesn’t have the answers. Kieran sure the hell doesn’t either if you read the first book then you know why…
 
Bash spent time in Kieran’s world and now it was time for Kieran to spend time in Bash’s! One place is a big city, the other a small island town. One was full of danger while the other was full of fabulousness. Both full of family and friends. What will happen when it’s time for Kieran to return back to reality?
 
Omg!! The cameos are amazing!! And of course Bash and Kieran’s story. These two are fire! 🔥 It’s a good thing Kieran knows how to use a big hose 😂. Ok, wow, I am a twelve-year old boy inside. But after being with these two the innuendos keeping on coming…I just love them. They are not only hot but funny and sweet too and have so much fun. I can’t wait for the next book!
 
Quotes:
 
“That’s not what… I didn’t… You’re twisting my words.” Bash rubbed his temples. “I can’t think straight. Maybe I need another drink.”
“Babe, you’re never thinking straight,” Shaw said. “Don’t blame the champagne.”
 
“Honey, we were born to stand out. The question is whether we should go topless.”
 
“Okay, okay. Well, fuck, chalk this up to conversations I never thought I’d have with you, but let’s start at the beginning. Can’t have you givin’ the Bailey brothers a bad name.”
 
 
5 out of 5 stars

Dare Me is the second book in the Dare to Try trilogy by one of my favorite writing duos, Brooke Blaine and Ella Frank. I am so in love with Kieran and Bash. I fell for them when they were just fun side characters but now that they are the leading men, swoon! In Dare You, we got to see them meet and traverse Kieran’s world in Chicago. Now they are in Bash’s home of South Haven. Kieran gets to meet Bash’s friends (Hello my lovers, how I’ve missed you all). Kieran gets to be himself and more open than he was in Chicago and he gets to see a side of Bash that makes him fall even harder. Now that they have admitted they both want more, what happens next? Holy crap, I can’t wait to find out!

Blog Tour & Review – The Aristocrat, Penelope Ward

September 3, 2021 | Posted in Blog Tour, Review | By

 

Title: The Aristocrat
Author: Penelope Ward
Genre: Standalone Contemporary Romance
Release Date: August 30, 2021
BLURB

 

 

From New York Times bestselling author Penelope Ward, comes a new standalone novel.

 

The one that got away. Every girl has one, right?
Mine was a charming, British aristocrat who turned my world upside down one summer.
From the moment I first spotted Leo in the distance through my binoculars, I’d been captivated. I certainly never expected to find a man showering outside of the property across the bay in his birthday suit.
Then I noticed his housemate staring back at me with binoculars of his own—watching me watching Leo.
That made for an interesting conversation starter when I inevitably ran into them.
Turned out, the handsome Brits were only renting that house for the summer in my seaside town.
Leo and I formed an instant connection, even though we were technically opposites by all appearances. I taught him how to dig for clams, and he taught me that not all wealthy and powerful guys are pretentious.
Despite knowing he was totally wrong for me, I couldn’t seem to stay away.
It was a wild and crazy few months. And before I knew it, we’d fallen in love.
We both had one wish: more time together.
But Leo had obligations back home. He lived a life I’d never fit into. And I was going to law school. So, we decided to end it and never look back.
A part of me always felt like I’d let my soulmate walk away.
I believed our story was over.
Until five years later when he sent me a letter that shook me to my core.
I’d thought my world was turned upside down that first summer?
Well, I knew nothing yet.

Release Blitz & Review – Gen Pop, Lani Lynn Vale

August 13, 2021 | Posted in Blog Tour | By

Gen Pop

Souls Chapel Revenants MC Book 6

Lani Lynn Vale

Release Date: August 10, 2021

 

About the Book

Hangry: adjective—feeling irritable or irrationally angry as a result of being hungry.

Sometimes, Crockett felt that in her soul.

 

And, of course, the one time that she’s being ‘irrationally angry’ would be the time that the hottest guy on the continent walked into her place of business dressed in prison orange.

 

She should’ve been afraid.

 

She should’ve taken one look at him and walked the other way.

 

But, she didn’t.

 

Crockett Archer, better known as a doormat extraordinaire, didn’t walk away from the people she knew needed her. She’d never been able to do it with a father that didn’t love her, and she wouldn’t be able to do it with a man that didn’t think he deserved a chance at love.

 

One look is all it takes for Zach Caruso to know that Crockett could be his.

 

All he would have to do is snap his fingers, and she’d fall right into the palm of his hand.

 

Which is why Zach turns around and walks far, far away.

 

He tries not to look back.

 

He tries to leave her be.

 

But then he sees how she’s treated by the people that are supposed to love her, and all cognitive thoughts seem to flee his rational brain.

 

One second, he’s running in the opposite direction. The next, he’s playing her knight in dingy armor.

 

God help her.

5 out of 5 stars

Gen Pop is the sixth book in the Souls Chapel Revenants MC series by Lani Lynn Vale. I’m loving this series and these ex-cons and the women they fall for. We have known Zach and Crockett and I’ve been waiting for their story. Zach, the big, sexy doctor wants Crockett when he first sees her, but he thinks he’s not good enough for her. Months later, he can’t just stand by and watch her family treat her like dirt. He becomes fiercely protective and realizes he’s not walking away from her anymore. Crockett’s family is pretty bad. They treat her like crap and she has no idea why. But she’s starting to care less and less and she just wants Zach more and more. When they both stop running from each other it’s on! And oh boy is it hot and sweet. They both finally feel settled when they are together but they have to battle her family now. And wow. I have never heard anything like this!! It made me so mad. Zach and Crockett have such great chemistry and I love their banter! I also loved seeing old friends again. I don’t want this series to end!

Blog Tour & Reviews – Dare You, Ella Frank & Brooke Blaine

August 4, 2021 | Posted in Blog Tour, Review | By

Dare you, the first book in the all new must-read Dare to Try Trilogy from USA Today bestselling authors Ella Frank and Brooke Blaine is available now!

From Ella Frank’s Prime Time series and Brooke Blaine’s South Haven series comes an explosive spin-off of both worlds.

Sebastian “Bash” Vogel, the magnetic, cross-dressing CEO of AnaVoge, has long been a lone island when it comes to his personal life. Self-assured and playful, he’s never left wanting for suitors—but Bash isn’t looking for something permanent. He’s more than fulfilled with his company and his closest friends, and no one is going to shake up the status quo. That is, until he’s thrown over the shoulder of one of Chicago’s finest and hauled out of a burning building. Kieran Bailey, a sexy, hardworking lieutenant at Station 73, has been reaping the rewards of being crowned the city’s hottest fireman, which his crew never lets him forget. So many ladies, so little time. So when he rescues the latest damsel in distress, no one is more shocked than him to realize he’s played prince charming to another…prince.

But Bash isn’t like anyone Kieran has ever met, and soon his world is turned upside down as he becomes more intrigued by the enigmatic man that he can’t stay away from.

They’re from two different worlds. This could never work. But what if…they dared to try?

Dare You is book one of the Dare to Try trilogy, which must be read in order. Prior reading is not required, but is always a fantastic idea for maximum enjoyment.

Sandra's Review

5 out of 5 stars

Dare You is the first book in an epic crossover series, Dare to Try by Ella Frank & Brooke Blaine. They are one of favorite writing duos! If you read Ella’s Prime Time series then you have met Kieran Bailey and if you if you read Brooke’s South Haven series then you have had the pleasure of meeting Bash Vogel. You do not need to read them to enjoy this series but I recommend it read them at some point and you will definitely want to after reading this book.
It all started with a fire on the twenty-fifth floor.
Bash was in town for business but that night he was all about welcoming him to Chicago. He was looking fabulous in his red sequined dress and Manolos when he was thrown over the shoulder of one of Chicago’s finest. He didn’t see the face of the man but there was something about him that made him melt. He had to thank the man of his fantasies, right? Just that changed everything…
Kieran saved lives on a regular basis but saving Bash’s was different. He thought he was carrying out a stunning woman who turned out to be a man. He had no issue with it except the way he felt. And when he met the man, that feeling got worse with every single time he saw him afterwards. Every time he was near him, he questioned himself. Bash was something else. He was refreshing, witty, a shameless flirt, and he just enjoyed his time with him. A lot.
I absolutely loved these men. They live worlds apart but come together in a both easy and complicated way. Strangers to friends. Friends to maybe more. It’s about friendship, family, and exploring. I can’t wait for the next book! These two made me laugh, get hot and bothered, and shop. Bash’s style is fabulous, darling.
Quotes:
He was a puzzle that was getting more complex each time I ran into him.
“You’re a pretty big deal around here, huh?”
“I’m a big deal anywhere, darling.”
“See you around, Bash. Try to behave.”
“Never.”
5 out of 5 stars

Dare You is the first book in the Dare to Try trilogy by Ella Frank and Brooke Blaine. Ella and Brooke are one of my favorite writing duos and I can’t even begin to tell you how excited I was when I heard about the South Haven and Prime Time series crossover. That’s right, Kieran and Bash. Sweet Lord. These two are so much fun together. The innocent flirting, innuendo and witty banter is perfection. I still love Bash and his confidence and amazing style. Kieran is straight and a ladies’ man. He’s never been attracted to a man before, but there is something about Bash that turns him on. He’s thrown at first, but after a while he’s just goes with it. He’s attracted to Bash. Period. I couldn’t love these two more! This is just a little taste of what’s to come and I can’t wait to see what’s going to happen next.

Kara's Review

5 out of 5 stars

Winning with Him is the second book in the Men of Summer Series by Lauren Blakely. Yes, this is the conclusion to Grant and Declan’s story! I’ve been dying to get my hands on this since the second I finished reading Scoring With Him. Grant and Declan spent a short time together at Spring training getting to know each other as friends and then as lovers. We pick up where they left off and we get to see where the years take Grant and Declan. The story spans five years of them playing baseball, working hard, living their dreams. Grant grows up, becomes a better baseball player, makes long-lasting friendships. Declan perfects his game, learns a lot about himself and realizes he wants Grant in his life. The years apart made them better men and now it’s their time. They can make it work if they’re both in it. I loved watching Grant and Declan grow, mature and live their lives. They never forgot each other over the years, but the flame never went out. They are just too combustible together. Before just wasn’t the right time, but now is. Their time to fight for each other. Fight for what they want. Realize they can have baseball and love. I don’t know how it happened, but Grant and Declan are my favorite couple of Lauren’s. There’s just something about these strong, smart, sexy men that gets to me! Their heat, their passion, their love of baseball and life. Their supportive friends and family. It all pulled on my heartstrings and didn’t let go. Grant and Declan have an epic story. This story, these two men, are the reason I love romance novels. I would read a million stories about Grant and Declan!

 

Sandra's Review

5 out of 5 stars

Winning With Him is the second book in the Men of Summer series. It should be read after Scoring With Him where Declan and Grant first met at spring training. 
The shortstop and his rookie broke all the rules during their time at spring training. Temptation won. It was everything until their time in Arizona ended. It was time for their first love. Baseball. They had to live and breathe the game during the season. It was the game that never failed them. Always wanted them. Would always be there for them. They couldn’t always say that about people in their lives but baseball would always be there. On the field was their home. Will they be able to resist each other during the season? Will they give into temptation during the off-season once again? 
I really can’t say much about the story without spoiling it. I can say that the book spans over five years of their lives. Their story. Their careers. Friendships. Family. And of course I can tell you that I love these men!! Hard. They are definitely one of my all-time favorite couples of Lauren’s and I have read every single one of her books. I am addicted to her words and the men and women of her epic love stories. I laughed. I cried. I got all kinds of hot and bothered. I cried some more. I just love these men of summer!! There is so much more to them than just baseball and hotness. So much more. 
Quotes: 
Those dark eyes are locked on me the whole time as he crosses the bar, as if I’m the target in his crosshairs. He stares at me like he wants to take me apart. 
With his tongue. 
Yes, please. 
“So, that was a really good bagel,” I tell him in between gasps. 
“I’m wearing unicorns, Grant. I am not twirling too.”

 

Blurb:

Resisting the shortstop has never been my strong suit. I failed at it during my first spring training. It sure as hell looks like I’m about to fail at it again.

 

The sport I love playing with my very soul hangs in the balance. But everything my heart craves lies with the guy I’ve got to resist.

 

A guy who’s asking me to make the toughest choice ever.

 

But how do I become the man I want to be…with him or without him?

 

Trouble is, I can’t seem to get Declan out of my head, even if I stand to lose everything I’ve worked for my entire life…

 

Winning with Him is book two in the utterly addictive Men of Summer series, and should be read following Scoring With Him. This romance between two professional athletes spans five epic years.

Blog Tour & Review – Love Next Door, Helena Hunting

July 30, 2021 | Posted in Blog Tour, Review | By

Love Next Door, an all new addictive small-town romance from New York Times bestselling author Helena Hunting is now live!

When Dillion Stitch left her hometown, she had no intention of going back. But when her brother gets into trouble, Dillion reluctantly agrees to return home to take her place at the family business.

Being back in Pearl Lake after all these years feels familiar, but also brings a few surprises. She’s quick to notice that someone new has shown up at the cottage next door. Dillion gets more than an eyeful when she goes to check out the newcomer and meets Donovan “Van” Firestone—her beloved neighbor’s grandson—in all his unclothed glory.

Having gotten off to a rocky start, it’s not long before they begin bickering with each other all over town. All that back and forth inevitably sparks an undeniable attraction. But Dillion’s family has issues, Van’s family resents him, and neither Dillion nor Van feels truly at ease in the small town. For these Pearl Lake exiles, home isn’t just where the heart is—it’s where things get complicated.

Kara's Review

5 out of 5 stars

Love Next Door is the first book in the Lakeside series by Helena Hunting. I’m a huge fan of Helena’s and I always look forward to reading her books. I know I’m going to laugh out loud, shed a tear or two, have to fan myself and fall in love with her characters. Dillion left town at eighteen. She didn’t want to live in her small hometown anymore and she swore she’d never go back. When her brother gets injured she has to go home to help her family. She starts to like it more than she thought she would especially when she meets her sexy new neighbor. He’s not a stranger, but she hasn’t seen him in a long time. They don’t get off to a great start, but their bickering is just foreplay. Van just inherited his grandma’s cottage, a place he visited during the summer when he was young. He always loved this town and what started a short vacation turns into much more. After seeing Dillion again, Van can’t help but annoy her on purpose. She’s too easy to rile up! After just one kiss they can’t seem to stay away from each other. They both have things going on with their families and baggage but they just click. Will Pearl Lake be somewhere they can see themselves long term or will the call of the city be too much? Is Van’s grandma scheming from the afterlife? I just loved Van and Dillion. He’s smart, sexy and hilarious. She’s sassy, smart and tells it like it is. I loved all the little mentions of the Kingstons, Bowmans and other references to our favorite hockey heroes! I can’t wait to see who’s next in the series!

 

About Helena Hunting

New York Times and USA Today bestselling author of PUCKED, Helena Hunting lives on the outskirts of Toronto with her incredibly tolerant family and two moderately intolerant cats. She’s writes contemporary romance ranging from new adult angst to romantic sports comedy.

Book Blurb:

Jett Olsson isn’t looking for anything serious and she’s not looking for anything at all, so why does it seem so hard to keep it professional?

I love my life—the thrill of being on the ice as part of the Arizona Vengeance, the rush of winning, the adoration of the fans. And if that adoration means I don’t have to spend the night alone, well even better. I’m content being single and always ready to mingle.

But the day Emory Holland walks into a Vengeance team meeting my attention is caught like never before. I can tell right away she’s full of smarts and sass, and the fact that she’s hot as hell sure doesn’t hurt either. She immediately shuts down my advances, so I opt for the road less traveled—straight to the friend zone.

My approach works like a charm, and when she invites me into her bed for a no-strings, friends-with-benefits arrangement, I vow to give her everything I have. She’s been hurt before, and if I’m able to help her heal while giving her a spectacularly satisfying time *pats self on back*, then I’ll be happy.

Or at least that’s the lie I keep telling myself as the time ticks down on the final buzzer of our “relationship”. Now the real question is, can I score the winning goal in a game neither of us realized we were playing?

Jett is the tenth book in the Arizona Vengeance series by Sawyer Bennett. You can read each book as standalone but they are connected by teammates and friends. It’s one of my favorite hockey series’. If you read Steele then you know Jett swooned when he saw Emory walk into the room. This is their story…

Jett wanted her the moment he saw her and then he knew he wouldn’t give up on her when she hit him with her British accent. He was goner but he didn’t do complications. He was single and loving it but he wanted to get to know this woman. She was a game changer yet he had no idea how she would change his life. She was the new VP of Digital Marketing and Analytics so he knew she could help him with his Insta game. That was professional, right? A dinner talking about social media and how to more followers. Too bad she totally friend-zones him but it’s not over…

Emory’s life is full of complications and no way she could add one more to her plate especially a man. Friends. There was nothing wrong with being friends with Jett but one step further would be a lot more fun. Friends with benefits. No strings. No complications. No exceptions. Just casual fun in the sheets. But what happens when strings slowly start showing up?

Aw! This couple is delicious and complicated. They are sweet and sexy. Funny and entertaining. I also loved all the secondary characters. I am hoping a certain someone is getting their own story. The only reason I didn’t give 5 stars was because of the abrupt ending. I want more and maybe there will be in the next book.

Quotes:

“That’s it,” she replies with a grin, and I frown at her. “I don’t like vegetables.”
“But they make you big and strong,” I reply.
“I’m fine being petite,” she quips and reaches out to take the plate from me. I set it before her on the table.

“I’m sorry. I just had this image of one of those life-size cardboard cutouts people have of their favorite celebrity.”
“They actually sell those of me,” Jett says, joining me in the humor. “I’ll buy one for you.”

If she looked at me like that every day for the rest of my life, I’d want for nothing.

4.5 out of 5 stars

Jett is the tenth book in the Arizona Vengeance series by Sawyer Bennett. Sawyer writes such good hockey heroes and I really loved Jett! He’s laid back, sexy, sweet and really does know what he wants. He may not do relationships, but that doesn’t mean he doesn’t want to. He’s got the hots for Emory but she doesn’t have time for complications in her life. Friends she can do. Friends with benefits even better. Turns out Jett is nothing like she thought. It doesn’t take long for them to realize they both want more. Will Emory be able to trust in Jett? Jett is a great addition to the series and I’m already looking forward to the next one!

Review Tour – The Spark, Vi Keeland

July 13, 2021 | Posted in Blog Tour, Review | By

Title: The Spark
Author: Vi Keeland
Genre: Standalone Contemporary Romance
Release Date: July 12, 2021

 

BLURB

 

Before I even met Donovan Decker, I knew his shoe size.

 

You see, I’d gone away for a few days, and in my haste to get out of the airport, I’d grabbed the wrong suitcase.
After checking out the expensive footwear and tailored clothes, I dialed the number on the luggage tag hoping maybe Mister Big Spender might have my bag.
A deep, velvety voice answered, and as luck would have it, he had my suitcase, too.
Donovan and I met at a coffee shop to do the exchange.
Turned out, it wasn’t just his voice that was sexy. The man holding my luggage was absolutely gorgeous, and we had an immediate spark.
He got me to admit that I’d snooped in his bag and then convinced me to make it up to him by letting him buy me coffee.
Coffee led to dinner, dinner led to dessert, and dessert led to spending an entire weekend together. Donovan wasn’t just handsome with a panty-dropping voice. He was also funny, smart, and surprisingly down to earth for a man who wore seven-hundred-dollar shoes.
Did I mention he also did my laundry while I slept?
Definitely too good to be true.
So what did I do to repay him for his kindness?
I waited until he was in the shower, then ghosted him.
My life was too complicated for such a great guy.
In the months that passed, I thought about Donovan often. But New York City had eight-million people, so what were the chances I’d run into him?
Then again, what were the chances I’d run into him a year later…when I’d just started dating his boss?

The Spark is Vi Keeland’s newest kickass standalone. I have read most of her books and it’s one of my favorites. If I wasn’t on vacation and could only read before 8am, I would have finished this story in a day. It’s fun, sexy, and emotional.

 

Autumn doesn’t do wild. Yes, she did just get back from a bachelorette party in Vegas but it had been a while since she let loose. She was exhausted so when she discovered that she picked up the wrong suitcase at the airport, she was just done. It was an interesting development though when she went through it…you know you would to. And when she meets the man with her suitcase that night, she isn’t upset about the mix-up. He was handsome, funny, sweet, and they end up spending three days together talking, watching movies, and connecting. That is exactly why she got to ghost him. It was too much. She didn’t think she would ever see him again…until her boyfriend sends him to meet her.

 

Donovan wanted this partnership. It was his time. Seven years of kicking ass for the law firm, this was it so when his boss asks him a favor, he goes. And, he sees her. The redhead who ghosted him almost a year ago. The same redhead he thought enjoyed herself with him. The redhead he couldn’t quit. And now, she was here. In an unexpected place. This was his second chance until she drops the bomb on who she is dating. The man who could make him partner. He was screwed but determined. He knew she was it for him. He just had to prove it. Could he get the girl and his career dream?

 

I love Donovan! He is delicious and so adorable at the same time. The perfect mix of romantic, funny, sweet, and alpha. Autumn is a badass woman who needs to trust again. She has a big heart, sweet, funny, and worth it. Together, they are so much fun! There is also some heavy subjects tied in and that made the story even more inspiring.

 

Quotes:

 

“Was the lady from housekeeping harmed in the robbery?”

His eyes narrowed for a heartbeat, but then a giant smile spread across his face. He held his hand out toward the seating area. “After you, Autumn W.”

 

“It won’t be easy, but I’ll try to be less charming.”

She giggled, and another crack in my heart sealed up. “I’m sure that will be tough for you.”

 

“That sounds like a challenge, and I do not like to lose.”

“Bring it on, Mr. Decker.”

The Spark is a new sexy, sweet and emotional romance by the fabulous Vi Keeland. I’m a huge fan of Vi’s have read so many of her books and they just keep getting better and better. Sexier, smarter, heroes. Stronger, more bad*** heroines. Donovan and Autumn are one of my favorite of Vi’s couples and I absolutely loved this book. It all starts with a luggage mix-up that leads to an exchange, coffee and a sexy weekend spent together. Then Autumn ghosts Donovan and he never knows why. Donovan never forgot about her. There was just something about her and he knew she wasn’t like other women. Then fate stepped in again and she’s the social worker for his new client. What are the chances? The spark they have is still there and Donovan is hopeful he can remind her how good they were together. Autumn doesn’t let herself date men she could fall for that’s why she left Donovan. It’s just who she is. He’s even more handsome. And those tattoos that are hiding under those expensive suites. Wowzas. They can be just friends right? The more she gets to know him, the more she realizes she needs to try to see if things can work out. He’s worth it. Donovan knows his feelings are strong for Autumn but he has to start slow. Is that even possible? Will Autumn get spooked again and run off? Will Donovan chase her this time. Oh my Lord! This story! I laughed, cried, got hot and bothered and thoroughly enjoyed every second. Donovan and his plants? I love him! Autumn is so strong and independent and I just loved her too! I love a sexy hero who shows his softer sweeter side while he’s being all alpha! Donovan is the perfect man!

Blog Tour & Reviews – Good Intentions, Ella Frank

June 24, 2021 | Posted in Blog Tour, Review | By

Gabriel Romero made me hungry for things I’d never wanted, and starved of the things I didn’t think I’d ever need. Until now… Until him…

Good Intentions, the all-new, seriously hot age-gap romance and the conclusion to the Intentions Duet from USA Today bestselling author Ella Frank is available now!

I was never the man who believed in love, romance, or happily ever afters. I was married to my work, and happy to be that way. Until one night, not too long ago, when an audacious young man lied his way into my life and showed me what I’d been missing.

Bold and sexy, with a face that could melt through the iciest of exteriors, Gabriel Romero is the one factor I never saw coming. There are so many reasons we shouldn’t work—my age, his, our career goals in life—and yet we are drawn together by a passion for music, and each other, that neither of us can deny.

I’ve always been the one to think things through, to follow my head instead of my heart. But if I don’t open myself to what’s possible, instead of thinking of all the ways this seems impossible, I might miss out on the best thing that has ever happened to me.

So I’m taking a chance, and laying myself at his mercy, opening my heart with nothing but good intentions. Only time will tell if Gabriel Romero decides to let me back in.

Good Intentions is the second book in the Intentions Duet.

Sandra's Review

[use=5]

Good Intentions is the second book in the Intentions duet by Ella Frank. You can not read this one without reading Bad Intentions first. If you are a fan of Ella’s but haven’t started this duet then do it! There are some cameos that you do not want to miss.

Gabe spent the week with Marcus and now it was Marcus’s turn to see how Gabe lives. No driver. No calling in for dinners. No fancy restaurants. They definitely have the chemistry but they are from two different worlds and have a twenty year age gap. They have fun, hot nights, and seem to get each other but is it all enough? They are both at a crossroads in their careers. They have important decisions to make but have only just started their relationship. Can they have it all?

Aw!! I just love this couple. They are both intense and adorable. They are just so much fun and full of sarcasm and heat. And, all the cameos…loved it. So much. I am hoping there is a spin-off for a certain someone. 💞

Quotes:

“I can’t remember what my days were like without talking to you, and I don’t want to.”

“I’m the oldest person in here for as far as the eye can see.”

Gabe ran a hand up my chest. “The sexiest too, and I bet you’re going to look real hot holding an axe.”

I narrowed my eyes. “I’m starting to really question your sanity.”

“Priest, you’re a lifesaver. Actually, Julien is. Let’s go eat before I pass out from hunger.”

“Or get even more delightful from it,” Mr. Madison muttered.

“Yeah, yeah, whatever. Come on, Gabe, you’re about to experience the best thing you’ve ever had in your mouth.” Priest chuckled as Logan stopped in his tracks.

Then my boss grinned at me. “Well, food-wise, anyway.”

Good Intentions is the conclusion to Marcus St. James and Gabriel Romero’s story! I love, love, love these two men! Marcus is older, successful and hasn’t smiled this much in years. Gabe is young, talented and on the upswing of his music career. They are committed to each other and find themselves falling fast. But they both have decisions to make about their futures. Separately and together. Take a chance on love? Put your heart on the line for forever? Oh my! I couldn’t love this book more! Gabe and Marcus might be decades apart in years, but they have more in common than any two people should. They know what they want and they go after it. Period. And they want each other and won’t let anything get in their way. I could read five more books about them, so I hope we see them again! I also loved seeing some our my favorites again. Ella loves us and always gives us what we want!

“Reel is alive and pulsing like a beating heart. This romance is a triumph of art and emotion.” –Talia Hibbert, New York Times bestselling author

Reel, an all new epic CONTEMPORARY STANDALONE love story from Wall Street Journal bestselling author Kennedy Ryan, is available now!

One moment in the spotlight.

For months I stood by, an understudy waiting in the wings, preparing for my time to shine. I never imagined he would watch in the audience that night. Canon Holt. Famous film director. Fascinating. Talented. Fine. Before I could catch my breath, everything changed. I went from backstage Broadway to center stage Hollywood. From being unknown, to my name, Neevah Saint, on everyone’s lips. Canon casts me in a star-studded Harlem Renaissance biopic, catapulting me into another stratosphere.

But stars shine brightest in the dead of night. Forbidden attraction, scandal and circumstances beyond my control jeopardize my dream. Could this one shot—the role of a lifetime, the love of a lifetime—cost me everything?

  Excerpt   “Turn around.” It’s a guttural command.
 He bends me over the arm of the couch, and my hands hit the cushion for support, to steady myself. At the sound of the condom tearing, my inner muscles contract, bracing for him. He spreads my cheeks and, slipping his whole hand between my legs, cups the trembling flesh. I’m unprepared for the swipe of his tongue. For the subtle abrasion of his beard scraping the inner skin of my thighs. For the sound of him eating me. I push back against his face, helpless, no shame. Digging my nails into the cushions, I widen my legs to give me more, to take more for myself. He grips my thighs, holding me steady for his devouring mouth until, with a sob that sails over the rooftop, over the city, I contract around his delving tongue. The orgasm hits hard, tightening the muscles in my thighs and calves. With staccato breaths, I bury my face in the couch, biting my lip to the point of pain.
 “Canon,” I beg. “Stop teasing me and—”
 He shoves in, and the words tumble back down my throat, recessing into the shock of this pleasure.
 “Jesus.” Need shreds my voice to ribbons. 
 He coasts his hand up my back, gently cuffs my neck. Ass in the air, I rise up on my toes, begging for breath, petitioning for more dick. He gives it to me, pushing impossibly deeper.
 “So damn good,” he grunts behind me. 
I hope I never get over how perfect he feels inside me, like I was molded to his specifications. Shaped for his dimensions. I moan and reach my hand back to pull at one of my cheeks, widening the way for his cock. It feels like he goes where no dick has gone before, deeper, better. Somehow I feel each thrust in my heart. His every touch plays on my emotions, and tears sting my eyes. His hand tightens at my hip, and he slides the other hand up my arm, finds my hand on the couch and laces our fingers together. He sets a frenetic pace that sends the blood singing through my body again. The cushion absorbs my scream as I come, and I punish the soft cotton with clawing nails. With his voice strangled, his fingers fisted in my hair, he comes. 
 Collapsing against my back, a heavy, happy burden, his breath stilted and warm at my neck, he snakes one muscled arm around my middle, clutching me. After the urgent, feral coupling, it’s a cherishing hold. I cross my arm over his at my waist and tangle our fingers. It’s fragile and sweet, this moment, like flakes of sugar disintegrating on your tongue when you’ve barely had time to taste.
