New Release & Review – Catered All The Way, Annabeth Albert

December 11, 2023 | Posted in Cover Reveal, New Release, Review | By


Tis the season for a hopeless crush on my older brother’s best friend…

This year will be different. I’m all grown up, my gaming channel is a huge success, and I finally have the confidence to make my move on Atlas Orion, the hottest chief in the navy.

However, I don’t intend for my smooth move to be covering Atlas in cranberry sauce. Not at all how I want to reintroduce myself to my new roomie and coworker. Atlas is in town to help save Seasons, my family’s historic holiday gift shop and event space. Seasons is booked solid with catered parties, so we need to avoid any more disasters.

Like my malfunctioning air mattress. We’re down to one bed, two dudes, and a whole lot of holiday-fling temptation. Atlas has never been with a guy, but I don’t have to do much persuading. And what better way to explore than a secret romp? No strings, and no one has to know.

The problem? With every passing week, I fall harder for Atlas, who’s far more than his drool-worthy muscles and heroic job. He’s kind, funny, makes me breakfast in bed, and each midnight snowball fight brings us that much closer to heartbreak.

Atlas can’t stay in Kringle’s Crossing forever, and I can’t imagine leaving the only place I’ve called home. Our feelings run deep, but is it a holiday illusion? Can we find our way to a lasting future?

CATERED ALL THE WAY is a brand-new, full-length holiday romance from the beloved author of THE GEEK WHO SAVED CHRISTMAS. Lovers of stand-alone swoon-worthy Christmas stories will fall for this geek + military pairing. Full of spicy first times, bisexual awakening, quirky small-town residents, and guest appearances from some fan-favorite characters, this only one bed, brother’s best friend romance is sure to find a place under many trees! Dual POV and the happiest of endings guaranteed.

Catered All the Way is a new holiday romance from Annabeth Albert. I love this story with its holiday theme, brother’s best friend and first time sexiness. Zeb has always had a crush on his brother’s best friend, Atlas. Now Atlas is home on leave and staying in his house. In his bed. He always thought he was straight, but soon learns he’s not quite. He’s thrilled and scared, but he’s going for it. Atlas has never been attracted to men, but he wants Zeb. They have a month together and they are going to make the most of it. Neither of them knew how hard it was going to be to walk away. Can they make it work after the holidays? They just need to decide to jump and make the move. I loved this story. It has so much heart, family, love, fun and lust. I loved the Easter eggs! Annabeth’s stories always make me happy and content!

5 out of 5 stars

Dirty Crazy Bad is a prequel to a full-length novel releasing this summer with the same name. I am obsessed with Siobhan Davis’s books and the Sainthood- Boys of Lowell High so I am soooo excited about this new series! You don’t have to read that series to start the new one but I do recommend it since it’s amazing! I don’t want to give anything away so I won’t get into the story but I will say I am here for it. I am already hooked in with these characters and can’t wait to see what is going to happen next.
6 Hearts  Holy. Fucking. Shit. This book!!! I love reverse harem. I love enemies-to-lovers. I crave dark romance. This book is all of that in beautifully twisted bow. I am obsessed! Siobhan’s writing is addictive and twisted and I am here for it. It always questions my sanity and I just have to own it. I have a twisted mind and I love bad boys and these boys all have different personalities and all hot in their beautiful and fucked up ways. I have fallen for all of them but I do have a favorite. I would usually get into the storyline without spoilers but I can’t even do that. I can say that it’s a wild, hot, emotional ride and it’s not for the faint at heart. Enjoy the ride!! I can’t wait for the next one. It’s one of my favorite books of the year! 🔥  P.S. My heart is still pounding.  Quotes:  “Most girls would freak if their man came home all bloody and sweaty, but you kiss me and tell me I’m your hero.” “I hate you,” she whispers.  “You hate yourself more.” “Please let me take care of you,” he adds, lowering his tone.
Dirty Crazy Bad: Book Two is the second book in the duet by Siobhan Davis. This duet is everything I expected and more when it comes to Siobhan’s badass stories. Her words are addictive and I will always want another hit. I can’t really get into the storyline with this one without spoilers so this will be quick.  Ashley, Jase, Chad, and Ares are just pieces on a chess board for Rhett Carter. He wants to takeover the Luminaries and he needs everyone to play their parts. He wants to be in control of every move in the game but the next generation has other plans. The only way they can win at this game is to work together. The three men in Ash’s life have to let go of their hatred to have a future, but first they need to get Carter back. Will they make it through this twisted, dark, and deadly game?  Wow!! My mind is blown. The twists. The heat. The swoon. The suspense. It has it all. I love dark and twisted and RH and just damn… Siobhan gets me, she really gets me. Lol. I love Ash and her men. She is a badass who knows what she wants and her men are all so different but one thing they have in common is the way they love her. I do have my fave but love them all. I hope to see them again one day since I am really hoping for a few of the supporting characters get their own books someday.  Quotes:  “Own every part of me the way I own every part of you.” “Do you trust me with your pleasure and your safety?”  “Completely,” I say without hesitation.  “Good.” He leans in and bites my neck. “What the hell did you do to her?”  “Nothing she didn’t fucking love.”
YES!!! Loved all five bonus scenes. Totally different scenes and I loved that. You have fun. You have sad. You have straight fire!!

This was my place. My business. Easter Lanes.

Then a guy comes in, trying to rob me, daring to take it away from me.

He’s now the head of the Walden mafia family, and my father is so in debt to them that they practically own him.

My dad and I are estranged and I want nothing to do with him or his debt, but the day after the attempted robbery, I don’t wake up in the hospital.

I wake up in Ashton Walden’s home. And he drops a bomb on me.

If I want my livelihood back, I need to earn it back.

A Cruel Arrangement is the second book in the Kings of New York series by Tijan. You can NOT read this book as a standalone so if you haven’t read A Dirty Business… go one-click it now. These kings of New York are 🔥. 
Molly is a fierce independent woman who has lived her life in survival mode. She was Shorty Easter’s daughter after all. A man owed by the mafia and not just any mafia, the Walden’s. The man had nine lives. Molly wanted nothing to do with her father. She bought him out of Easter Lanes and the bowling alley was her life. She had a few friends and her lanes. That’s all she needed. So when a man comes in to rob her at gunpoint, she flipped her switch. She won’t show fear. She will make him fear her. She ended up in the hospital but her biggest shock was where she was when she woke up… in Ashton Walden’s home.
Ashton needed her. He needed her for information and she needed him to get her life back. A cruel arrangement is made. Promises are made. It was dangerous. It was sexy. It was life-changing. There will be blood. There will be lust. There will answers. There will be love. It’s an epic mafia romance I will never forget. I am so hoping it’s not the end of the series. I still have love for another character. ♥️
When he was a teenager, he’d been hot. But now, my mouth was almost watering, and I hated that, but I couldn’t deny it. Now he was a masterpiece to look at, and my stomach dipped because I knew how ruthless he could be at the same time.
She owned me, and god help anyone who tried to take her away from me.
“You run and I’ll burn the world down for you.”

Release Blitz & Review – Destined for Me, Corinne Michaels

April 11, 2023 | Posted in Cover Reveal | By

“I won’t ever hurt you, Hadley. I won’t.” “I know.”

Destined for Me, an all-new emotional Come Back for Me/Say You’ll Stay Crossover novella from New York Times bestselling author Corinne Michaels is available now!

From New York Times Bestselling author Corinne Michaels comes an Arrowood-Hennington crossover next generation novella.

No one makes my blood boil like Cayden Hennington. When I finished second in my class in law school, he finished first. We interned at the same firm—he got hired while I didn’t. Now we’re opposing counsel on my first big solo case, and I refuse to lose to him.

I will not think about the way his lips taste or how he makes my heart race. I won’t dream of that night we argued until our clothes came off.

That night is irrelevant because I am over him. (I’m also lying to myself).

However, we’re both professionals, right? Wrong. One stupid drink is all it takes after six hours of intense negotiations to find myself right back in his arms and in a world of trouble.

There is a thin line between love and hate, and we are destined to choose a side.

**Every 1001 Dark Nights novella is a standalone story. For new readers, it’s an introduction to an author’s world. And for fans, it’s a bonus book in the author’s series. We hope you’ll enjoy each one as much as we do.**

5 out of 5 stars

Destined for Me is a Come Back to Me and Say You’ll Stay crossover by Corinne Michaels. I have read both series and loved each and every one of the books. This story is second generation and I am here for it. Cayden is Zack and Presley’s son and Hadley is Connor and Allie’s daughter. 
Cayden and Hadley have history. It started back in college, it was heated and complicated. Always going at each other. You know what they say, there is a thin line between love and hate. Hadley wants to forget about the hot, arrogant lawyer but he was now the opposing counsel…
Cayden wants Hadley. Her smart mouth just turns him on especially when she looks at him like she wants to kiss him with it. She might tell him she wants to forget about him and the night they shared years ago but he also sees the way she looks at him…with lust in her eyes. 
One more night changes it all…
Yes!! This is a story I didn’t know I needed and now I need more! Between the two series’ there were a lot of kids. Lol. 
“I hate you.” 
“You only wish you did,” Cayden’s voice I low…
In a suit, Cayden is gorgeous. Absolutely freaking amazing. In tight jeans and a cowboy hat…dear God. I am screwed.
“One meal. No sex.” 
Victory is mine.
“I will do my best to keep you from mauling me.” 
“Yeah, I’m sure that’ll be the issue,” she says with a smile.

Keep reading for a look inside Destined for Me!

“It’s too bad my client had to walk away from your attempt at fixing the contract,” a deep voice that has taunted me for five years says from the edge of my office door. Cayden. Fucking. Benson-Hennington. The bane of my existence. It doesn’t matter that I am an associate at my law firm. That I have more billable hours than any other associates—and probably more than him—even though he was hired at the firm we both interned at while I was not. I swear, it’s his life’s mission to always be one step above me. Not today, Satan. “Well, your client is an idiot, and should take the deal I presented. Believe me, you won’t get a better chance to fix the mess you made. There won’t be another offer.” His wide grin makes my stomach flip. “We’ll see.” “Yes, I think we will. Was there something you needed?” He steps inside—uninvited I might add—and takes a seat. “By all means, make yourself comfortable.” “Look, Hadley, we both know that your client was asking for way too many concessions. To have two seats on the board would give them controlling votes. Come on, you know that was an error.” “Maybe so, but it wasn’t my error, it was yours.” To be fair, it wasn’t really his error. Cayden took over this negotiation after his client used another firm who clearly botched the contract. Still, it’s his issue at the very least. “No, but it is my mess and I plan to clean it up. By the end of this, my beautiful nightmare, you will be walking out with less than you came in with.” He’s so arrogant, ugh, I want to kiss him. I mean punch him. Punch. Not kiss. No, no, been there and done that. Never again. “So you want to rob these people of their entire life’s work?” “I want my client to get what they deserve.” I bet he does. This man has no soul. “Do you forget where you come from?” I ask. Cayden grew up in Tennessee. His family owns a horse ranch that they have had for generations. Literally a blue collar, farming family. The same as my clients. They were approached to sell their land, giving up their legacy, all so his client’s company can dismantle it and make it into a resort or a strip mall. Therefore, I don’t think asking for something to help safeguard either of those from happening is a concession they shouldn’t ask for. It’s only fair that their children have at least a little left at the end of this. “Of course, I know where I came from.” “And if this were your parents, how would you advise them?” He leans forward, resting his forearms on his knees. His green eyes fixed on me. “That’s where we differ, Arrowood…these aren’t my parents. They’re my clients and my goal is to get them everything they want.” I get up and walk around the desk, resting my ass just on the edge. His gaze moves down to my legs and up, lingering a bit on my chest. I watch as a flicker of desire flashes across his face, and I wonder if he’s picturing me naked. Remembering that stupid night we spent together in college. Lord knows I am—not. Nope, I’m not. I won’t. Because it was a mistake. Sure, I’ll go with that. Good thing I have an incredible poker face. “What are you thinking about?” his voice is low and husky. You and me on the floor, ripping each other’s clothes off. Or the desk, that would be equally fine. “I’m thinking about how arrogant and ridiculous you are. You came to my office to what?” I keep my tone even.

Release Boost Blast – Moving On, Felice Stevens

January 6, 2023 | Posted in Cover Reveal | By

Title: Moving On
Author: Felice Stevens
Genre: Gay Romance Standalone
Release Date: January 2, 2023

5 out of 5 stars

Moving On is a standalone MM romance from Felice Stevens. I’m a big fan of Felice’s and I try to grab her books as often as possible. This is Tristan and Sean’s story. (Tristan is from the Man Up series and I might have to go back and read that!) Sean is down on his luck, lost his apartment and his job and is crashing at his sister’s apartment that she typically rents out. He was a singing waiter and he’s just looking for any job serving at this point. Tristan is an ex NYPD detective back in NY after a few years of being in London. Sean’s brother-in-law gives him the apartment to use until he can find one of his own. Now Tristan, who’s grumpy and closed off is sharing a one bedroom apartment with Sean, the fun-loving singing performer. Tristan is carrying guilt over the loss of his partner and doesn’t even want to talk about himself. But he’s instantly attracted to Sean and that’s going to be a problem. Sean can’t believe he has to share space with the tall, gorgeous man who won’t even talk. But he’s persistent and is going to get Tristan to talk to him. It takes time, but they finally get into a routine of eating together (Tristan and his healthy green juice and Sean’s junk food). Then one drunken night and they end up in bed together. Tristan can’t keep denying he wants Sean. Somehow Sean got past some of his walls and he really wants to let him in. Once he decides he wants Sean it is on! And I loved every minute of it. Sean is so open and fresh and talented. He’s been on his own his entire life and he has a past that would make anyone cry (me included). Tristan was similarly abandoned as a child, hid his sexuality and suffered a major loss on the job. Together, they fill in all the broken pieces and just make sense. Sean makes Tristan smile and laugh. Tristan makes Sean want to want more for himself. It’s a funny, sexy, emotional story that had be laughing and wanting to give them both hugs!


“… the chemistry between these two is crazy! They try their best to ignore it but as they slowly grow closer, the walls start to come down. This was a sexy, sweet, wonderful book!” ~ Carol’s Crazy Bookish World



When his roof caves in, Sean Lovett thinks things can’t get any worse. Until he loses his job, adding yet another bump in the rocky road of his life. None of his so-called friends can—or will—help. And asking a favor from his abusive ex? Hard pass. Luckily, his sister comes to the rescue and offers him a great apartment—in the city, no less—until he can get back on his feet.
Sweet deal.
Until a gorgeous man unlocks the front door and strolls right in with a grumpy attitude and a claim that his boss—who happens to be Sean’s brother-in-law—promised him the same apartment.
Former NYPD detective Tristan McDermott hasn’t stopped running since the death of his best friend. After almost two years of living in his own personal hell, he returns home to New York, hoping he can move on, but guilt still follows his every step. He’s grateful to have the perfect apartment until he can settle into a place of his own. But there’s a cute guy already living there. And only one bedroom. And no way is Tristan leaving. He’s staying put.
Sharing the space is tough, but Tristan can ignore sweet Sean and his sunshiny smiles.
Kind of.
Except Sean’s brother-in-law asks Tristan to keep an eye on Sean so he doesn’t make any bad decisions.
Uh oh.
Keeping an eye on Sean is easy. Keeping his hands off him is much, much harder.
And sleeping together…well, that isn’t a bad decision. Not when it feels so good.
From Lambda Literary award winning author Felice Stevens comes the story of a grumpy, green juice-drinking ex-detective running from the past and a sunshiney singing waiter who can’t catch a break. It features a meet-cute, only one bed, learning to trust, and a surprise lap dance.









Felice Stevens has always been a romantic at heart. She believes that while life is tough, there is always a happy ending around the corner. Her characters have to work for it, because just like life in NYC, nothing comes easy and that includes love.
Felice is the 2020 Lambda Literary Award winning author in best Gay Romance and two time e-Lit award winner in romance. When not writing or watching reality television, you can find her in her reader group.




Release Blitz & Review – Moody, Penelope Ward

August 22, 2022 | Posted in Cover Reveal | By


Title: Moody
Author: Penelope Ward
Genre: Standalone Contemporary Romance
Release Date: August 22, 2022



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


The day I showed up to Dax Moody’s sprawling home, I had no idea what was coming.
As a traveling massage therapist, I was used to entering the houses of strangers.
But this assignment was different from any before it.
From the outside, I’d correctly assumed the owner was rich. What I didn’t realize was that he would be younger than I’d imagined, single, stunningly gorgeous, and mysterious.
Despite the fact that Dax had booked a massage, it never actually happened, since our first appointment was unexpectedly cut short by a comedy of errors.
Certain I’d never see him again after that day, I’d done nothing but think about the captivating man.
To my surprise, he called a second time. That appointment, we talked a lot, developing a stronger connection. But once again, there was no actual massage.
The man I now affectionately called “Moody” kept calling me to come back.
It took three times before I finally gave him the massage he’d ordered. Let’s just say it was challenging to keep things professional. I was extremely attracted to Dax, and by that time, I was falling hard.
Eventually, I’d find out why he’d been so aloof, the reason why he and I could never be together.
Our story was supposed to end there, but it didn’t.
Instead, I was left perpetually longing for a forbidden man.




Limited time release price $3.99!
5 out of 5 stars
Moody is Penelope Ward’s newest standalone. Every time I open one of her books I know I will be addicted to story and this one is no different. It’s unique, forbidden, heartbreaking and at the same time, heartwarming.
The day Wren stepped into Dax’s home to give him a massage was the day both of their lives changed forever. He never got his massage that day or even at the next appointment. What they did get was great conversation and some ogling of the other. On the third appointment, there was actually a massage but there was more to it. They seemed to be developing a friendship along with feelings mixed in but Dax knew he wasn’t for her. She deserved to find someone who could give her everything he couldn’t. It had to let her go but it was easier said than done…
I really can’t get into the storyline more than that. I can say how much I loved these two! I love forbidden romances and plot twists and this book has both. It’s a beautiful love story with twists and turns. I can’t wait for Penelope’s next book and so happy I won’t have to wait look since Penelope and Vi have one coming up!
“I will be leaving my pants on, thanks.”
“Okay. Just make sure you take the stick out of your ass one way or the other.”
He glared at me but finally cracked a slight smile. I’d take it.
“I’m going to fucking hell,” he whispered.
“I’ll see you there.”
“Do you mind waiting here while I get my shotgun?”



Ward is a New York Times, USA Today and #1 Wall Street Journal bestselling
author of contemporary romance.
She grew up
in Boston with five older brothers and spent most of her twenties as a
television news anchor. Penelope resides in Rhode Island with her husband, son,
and beautiful daughter with autism.
With over two
million books sold, she is a 21-time New York Times bestseller and the author
of over thirty books. Her novels have been translated into over a dozen

New Release & Review – Hacked, Lucy Lennox and May Archer

July 31, 2022 | Posted in Cover Reveal | By

Well-known computer security infiltration specialist Jasper Huxley has never met a system he can’t hack. Whether his assignment is accessing a highly-classified Pentagon server or modifying his little brother’s high school report card, he’s always got a botnet, an exploit, or a little bit of social engineering he can call up to get the job done.

But there are certain things he can’t finesse, no matter how hard he tries.

•Beating the infuriatingly adorable and maddeningly handsome Kevin Rogers in the ice mammoth expedition during Horn of Glory’s first annual Horn Master Championship week. (Robbery.)

•Accessing stolen cartel data on a device that’s never connected to a network. Pretty sure it’s the fault of a certain busybody gamer who will not be named. (Kev.)

•Sharing a house and–worse–a network with Kev. (Gah.)

•Being forced to allow a non-trained, non-serious, and non-resistable civilian to take part in a critical intel operation. (•side-eyes Kev)

•Navigating social situations with grace when he continues to run into Kev–and his new gamer “boyfriend”–at society events during the course of a critical mission. (Like any serious relationship starts during a game.)

•Keeping Champion Security’s system safe from increasingly sophisticated black hat threats. (Not Kev, but still… annoying.)

In short, when Kevin Rogers is in the picture, the safe and peaceful life Hux has managed to construct for himself gets suddenly and irrevocably… hacked.

(And it’s all Kev’s fault.)

Kara's Review

5 out of 5 stars

Hacked is the third book in the Licking Thicket: Horn of Glory series by Lucy Lennox and May Archer. I love this series so much! This is Hux and Kev’s story! I have loved both of them since Hijacked and I’m so glad we finally get their story. Hux is part of Champion security and Kev is Carter’s cousin. They have been working together for a while and they have been more enemies than anything! Or so everyone though. Now that they are forced to work side-by-side for the team, the animosity is definitely attraction now. Hux doesn’t think a man like Kev, smart, rich, good and handsome would ever like someone like him. Kev thinks Hux is too experienced, too sexy and too grumpy to like him. Once they let down their guards and work and play together, they realize there’s more than just snarky banter. There’s sexual tension, long looks and casual touches. And then there’s more. Oh boy is there more! I couldn’t love Jasper Huxley and Kevin Rogers more if I tried! They are so funny together, I was laughing out loud. They are also freaking hot together! I feel like the last two books was just foreplay for these two and I was here for it! I love Hux and his sexy tattoos and sweet words. Kevin and his sexy glasses and his brain. I was dying over the game, Horn of Glory, my favorite Champ quote, “I changed my mind. I love this game. The puns are delightful.” The never ending innuendos, the team of hilarious men and women. I just loved all of it!

Only a bad nanny knows what it’s like to kiss the boss.

CEO millionaire, Max Fletcher is a single dad in desperate need of a nanny.

Cozy Barlow is in the middle of her self-appointed “gap year” and doing everything she can to detach from her past.

But when her sister begs her to interview for the nanny position of a high maintenance client, she doesn’t have a good enough reason to say no.

And when Max locks eyes on the twenty-something in a tie-dye sweatsuit who pitches the idea of daydreaming all summer—he prepares to give this bad nanny the boot.

One problem: Max’s little girl thinks this plus-sized in body and spirit nanny might be her new bestie, so she hires her on the spot.

Now Max is stuck with this bizarre woman who hates everything he represents—corporate greed, money, status, power.

But one stormy night when the power goes out, he discovers Cozy doesn’t hate him. In fact, he’s the leading role in her fantasies.

Fantasies, he would very much like to make a reality.

“So that’s really your proposal as the nanny to my daughter for the summer? To do nothing?” I ask dryly, hoping this Cassandra person has a backup response that she’s going to pull out of her back pocket at any moment to save this horrible interview.

Cassandra nods proudly. “We’ll also do a lot of sitting. I’m an expert at sitting,” she deadpans.

“Okay…I think we’ve heard enough, Cassandra.” I move to stand, but she reaches out and touches my arm, halting me in my tracks.

“I said to call me Cozy,” she corrects with a wink.

The teasing look in her eyes causes my skin to tighten. I do my best to shake it off as she refocuses on my daughter to share with her the last book that made her cry. Her hand slides off my arm, and my eyes lock on the way her index finger trails off the fabric of my suit.

I’m left struggling to shake this silvery feeling her delicate touch has left on my arm, so I take a moment to inspect Cassandra a bit closer now that her focus is off me. Her facial features are round, a faint dimple appearing in her cheek as she talks animatedly to my daughter. Her alabaster skin is a stunning contrast to her nearly black hair cropped bluntly just above her shoulders. She has shockingly plump lips slathered in a pale pink gloss that thankfully doesn’t match the orange jumpsuit that looks like something a teenager would wear. Her ample curves indicate she’s very much not a child.

“How old are you?” I blurt out in the middle of my interview with this bizarre potential nanny. I blanch at how unprofessional of a question that is and curse under my breath. “I’m sorry, you don’t have to answer that.”

“I’m twenty-six, Big Daddy,” Cassandra replies with another wink and then immediately dives back into conversation with my daughter.

Big Daddy? I frown at that very unpleasant label. Jesus Christ, she is so unprofessional. No fucking way…over my dead body. This will not work. I click my tongue and bring out my CEO voice. “Cassandra…I thank you for coming in, but I’m afraid—”

“You’re hired!” my daughter bursts out, standing up so she’s eye level with me. She thrusts her hand across my face and reaches for Cassandra’s, mimicking me to a T how I’ve handled many successful boardroom transactions.

My mouth hangs open as I sit frozen, watching Cassandra stand in what feels like slow motion to take Everly’s hand and accept the offer.

“This is so awesome!” Cassandra shakes Everly’s hand so hard, she starts to giggle. “This summer is going to be GOAT!”

“Goats?” I exclaim, finally breaking free of my stunned-stupid response to my daughter taking over this meeting. How is Everly so charmed by this…this…I don’t even know what to call a person like Cassandra. “No one said anything about farm animals.”

Cassandra and Everly burst out laughing like they’ve been buddies their entire life. Everly places her slender fingers on my shoulder in a way that makes me feel like the eleven-year-old in the room. “Dad, GOAT means greatest of all time.”

My shoulders slump. “Oh.”

Everly leans over to Cassandra and whispers loudly, “I’m so glad this worked out. If we didn’t hire someone today, my dad was totally going to get a case of his stress poops again.”

“Everly!” My eyes fly wide when Cassandra turns her green gaze at me. I push a nervous hand through my hair and quickly rush out, “I don’t get stress poops. I don’t know what that kid’s talking about.”

Cassandra reaches out and pats me on the other shoulder. “Hey Mr. Fletcher, no judgment here. Maybe you should try some of that kombucha in the waiting room that you won’t let your staff have? It’s really good for the digestive system.”

I groan and pinch the bridge of my nose. This summer is going to be a disaster.

Keep reading for your first look inside Before I Let Go

The dress’s zipper stubbornly stays put at the middle of my back. Screw it. I’ll ask the hostess to zip me up. I grab my stuff and leave the bathroom just as the outer office door opens and Josiah walks in. His glance skitters over me, starting with my hair and sliding to my bare toes. “Sorry. I didn’t realize you were in here,” he says. Josiah’s face is interesting enough to make handsome look mundane, though the man is undeniably fine. The kind of fine that makes you lose your train of thought mid sentence and bite your lip. Gorgeous dark skin gleams, pulled taut over the high sculpted bones of his face. To be so controlled, nearly austere, there is something boundless about his presence. Standing here with him, that energy, an amalgamation of ambition and audacity and swagger, swirls around us in the office. It’s like being corked into a bottle with a typhoon. His brows lift, querying. I’m staring. “Oh.” I turn my back to him, as much to recover my composure as to get my zipper up. “It’s stuck. Can ya help?” He doesn’t answer, and his steps are so quiet I barely hear him cross the room, so the heat of his body warming my exposed skin startles me. The backs of his fingers brush over my spine as he pulls the zipper. It doesn’t budge at first, so he has to tug. Even just that whisper of a touch reminds my skin how to goose-bump. I glance over my shoulder and up, my breath hitching when our eyes collide. The air around us practically crackles, charged with a familiar current I’d forgotten was even possible. He clears his throat and slides the zipper to the top. “There you go.” I turn to face him and am unprepared for how close he stands. I’m barefoot and my view narrows to the broad chest and shoulders of the man in front of me. We’re not alone like this often anymore, leading separate lives that only intersect at our kids and our business. Kassim and Deja are usually around, or staff, friends, coaches, teachers. It’s rarely just us. We used to know each other better than anyone. Now I’m not even sure what he watches in the little free time he has away from this place, or if he even watches TV at all. “Have you seen Ozark?” I ask. The thick line of his brows dips. “Nah. Should I?” “It’s one of the best shows I’ve seen in a really long time. The acting, directing. The writing is stellar.” I’m rambling. I want to shove a sock in my mouth to make it stop running. “I’ll have to, uh . . . check it out.” He glances at the door. “I need to get back.” “Yeah.” I reach into the bottom of my suit bag to grab my green heels, bending to slip them on. “I gotta go too.” He runs a thorough glance from my head to my shoes. “You look . . . nice.” “Nice?” I scoop up the suit bag, now stuffed with my clothes, and speed to the door, grinning over my shoulder. “Pfftt. I look amazing.” He shakes his head, allowing a small smile. “You look amazing. Have a good time.” “I’ll try not to be out too late. And don’t let the kids stay up all night, Si. They have school tomorrow.” “Like I’m the pushover parent.” We both know he is, so I just stare at him until his smile broadens to that startling brightness that will snatch your breath if you let it. “Get outta here. I’ll see you at the house.” The house. Not home. Not the dream home we worked for and fantasized about for years. Now it’s just the house where the kids and I live. Josiah’s in the same neighborhood, but a few streets over. I’m not sure why my thoughts keep revisiting the past tonight when my reflection, my mindset, everything has “future” written all over it.

Kara's Review


Make Me Your Villain is the second book in the Battle Crows MC series. I loved Haggard’s story and meeting his brothers, so I’ve been looking forward to getting to know more about Shine. He’s the perfect mix of sweet and alpha. Iris is fun, independent and outgoing. They have an instant connection when they meet and I loved that about their relationship. They just knew it was going to be something special. Shine is a hard working man, but he doesn’t want to tell Iris what he and his MC really do. Iris also  has some family baggage that she can’t get away from, a crazy ex who’s stalking her and parents who are total jerks. But together they are happy and their relationship is easy, sexy and fun. They are both hard workers, love to eat and know how to laugh at themselves. I loved learning more about Shine’s brothers and can’t wait for all of their stories. I’m a huge fan of Lani and I have read almost fifty of her books, but this one was just missing something. It felt a little rushed and didn’t get me in the feels like they usually do. I did love Shine and Iris and thought they were great characters! And I’m definitely reading the rest of the series!
