March 7, 2024 | Posted in New Release, Review | By


It’s release day for If You Hate Me, a brand new standalone hate-to-love, brother’s best friend hockey romance from Helena Hunting.
My new roommates are two pro hockey players.
First, my manwhore older brother, and second, his seriously hot best friend (who I seriously hate).
This was a last resort.
No one should be sleeping on a futon that smells like Cheetos and ball sweat.
But here I am, trying to get my life together.
Tristan Stiles is the bane of my existence.
He never wears a shirt.
We can’t seem to stop fighting.
He’s an arrogant playboy with a filthy reputation.
Sure, I had a crush on him when I was fourteen, but that was a long time ago.
I know better than to trust him.
I just need to survive long enough to find a new job and get a new place.
And not accidentally let Tristan rail me into next week.

4.5 out of 5 stars

If You Hate Me is the first book in a new hockey series by Helena Hunting. (Pause for major cheers!) I’m already looking forward to more in the series and trying to pair all the characters up in my head. This is a brother’s best friend, enemies to lovers and it was fun, emotional, and extremely spicey. I think this is the spiciest book I’ve read of Helena’s. Rix and Tristan legit hate each other. But all that hate is just foreplay. They’ve known each other since they were young, but now they are living together temporarily and after all that foreplay the hate just explodes into lust of epic proportions. They agree it’s just until she finds a new place to live. After that, every available moment, surface and place is on the sexy list. Then those pesky feelings creep in and Tristan can’t handle them. His past is just too much for him to move past and realize he’s allowed to be happy. To be loved. Rix didn’t want to fall for Tristan, but she did and now she doesn’t know what to do. He keeps running and she can’t keep chasing him. Tristan needs to get his crap together or he’s going to lose the best thing that’s ever happened to him. I really like Rix and Tristan and this new set of characters! There were a few scenes that had me covering my eyes and ears and a few that I felt detracted from the story. Tristan is a filthy, dirty man and Rix loved it. I loved their banter and the times when Tristan was sweet and aggressive. I had the pleasure of listening to the audio and Conner and CJ really killed it! Overall, I enjoyed it! It was a little too dirty for me at times, but I enjoyed them enough and was invested in their happily ever after. I loved Rix and the girls and all the characters who are going to delight me in the rest of the series!

Boone (Pittsburgh Titans, Book #11)

(ends 1/23/2024)


Boone Rivers uses his fame and fortune as a professional hockey player to his advantage, but not in the way most people would think. Volunteering as often as his busy schedule will allow, Boone meets one brave young boy who turns his world upside down.

As a first-line right winger for the Pittsburgh Titans, I thrive on the thrill of the game. I live for the smell of the ice, the cheer of the crowd and the way my heart pounds whenever I step into the arena. But once I’m out of my skates, my focus is on giving back to the city of Pittsburgh.

It’s funny how life puts people in your path. I meet Aiden while visiting the children’s hospital and I’m struck by the strength and resilience of this 12-year-old kid fighting for his life. As my visits continue, we bond over video games and hockey until one day Aiden’s older sister walks into his room and I realize there might be a bigger purpose here.

Lilly Hoffman has the weight of the world resting on her slight shoulders. Aiden’s illness isn’t getting better, she’s at risk of losing her job and their father is looking for the answers to his prayers at the bottom of a liquor bottle. I find myself wanting to lessen Lilly’s burden and what starts as a simple act of friendship turns into so much more. As we grow closer, I can’t help but fall for this fiercely protective and independent woman with a tender heart and bruised but not yet broken spirit.

As we face a future of never-ending uncertainty, I vow to be Lilly’s source of strength and comfort. Lilly and Aiden have reaffirmed to me the importance of giving and receiving love unconditionally, even in the darkest of times. And no matter what happens next, no one can take that from us.

Sandra's Review

5 out of 5 stars

Boone is the eleventh book in the fantastic Pittsburgh Titans series by Sawyer Bennett. Each book can be read as a standalone but I recommend reading the series since they are interlocked. They each have a unique story and meet-cutes! Boone and Lilly’s meet-cute is both beautiful and heartbreaking.

Boone uses his spare time off the ice visiting children at the hospital. He even brings teammates along since he knows the kids would love to talk with some of their favorite players. He loves to hang out with the kids even if they have to stay in their rooms. He knows all the kids names and has become close to Aiden, a twelve year old fighting for his life. He wasn’t able to visit him for a few weeks after a procedure and on the day he was back, Aiden’s sister comes into Boone’s life and it changes everything…

Lilly didn’t have enough time in a day, between running the family deli and visiting her brother in the hospital she was lucky to eat a meal let alone date. She loved that Aiden and Boone have a connection, it made it even harder for her to resist her feelings towards the man. Even more so when he seemed to want to help not only her brother but herself and their father. What was in it for him? Was he just a good guy or was do he just want the publicity?

I don’t want to spoil anything! I will say that I knew this story would be an emotional one but damn. My name is Sandra, and I am in love with a fictional character. Boone is swoon-worthy with a beautiful heart and a protective spirit. Lilly is a complete badass and stronger than she even knows. Together, along with Aiden is a story that will make you swoon, laugh, cry, and feel every emotion within the pages. I have loved all of the books in the series but this one is unforgettable.

Not sure if you’re ready to commit to Boone? Sawyer’s got you covered!

Release Blitz & Review – Lost in Seoul, Rachel Van Dyken & Colet Abedi

December 14, 2023 | Posted in New Release, Review | By

Title: Lost In Seoul
Series: A My Summer In Seoul Novel
Authors: Rachel Van Dyken & Colet Abedi

New Adult Romance, K-pop Romance, Rockstar Romance
Angsty, Age-Gap, Best Friend’s Sister, Reality Show


Lost in Seoul is a standalone new adult romance set in the competitive world of K-pop from bestselling authors Rachel Van Dyken and Colet Abedi.

A meet cute is supposed to be cute.
Ours was sexy. Chaotic. Not normal.

Less than 10 minutes after we met, I realized we could never be. She was forbidden to me.

She held my hand behind his back.
I gripped hers, knowing it was wrong.

I was on the cusp of superstardom—and still I held her fingertips because it felt right.
Knowing that when it all went wrong, we would be done—the media would destroy us.
After all, not only was she was four years older than me, she was the leader of SWT’s sister—my best friend—and someone who could wreck everything we’d worked for.

But I still held on.

I’m lost. So lost.
I’m the youngest in the group, the one everyone sees as the most innocent.
But they don’t know the stolen moments with her.
The kisses.
The touching.
They don’t know any of that.

So I keep acting as if I’m pure as the driven snow when really all it took was one chance meeting.
To make.

Hi, I’m Sookie, Maknae of SWT, the most famous K-pop group in the world.
And I’m pretty sure I’m not just lost… nah, I’m about to fall.




Sandra's Review

5 out of 5 stars

Lost in Seoul is the second full-length novel (there is a novella) in the My Summer in Seoul series. Each book can be read as standalone but I recommend reading the series in order since interconnected. If you read My Summer in Seoul then you will remember Sookie, the youngest in the group. I love him so I was so happy he was getting his own book. 
Sookie was eighteen when he fell in love with a complete stranger from just one look. She was there when he needed someone to tell him everything was going to be okay. He was there for her when she just needed a hug. It was a moment they would never forget. A moment interrupted. And a few moments later… they were forbidden. Off-limits. She was his best friend and group leader’s older sister. 
Two years and many times of sneaking out to hang out later, they are friends who can confide in each other. The pressures of fame. The pressures from the managers. Sookie is overwhelmed. Tired of being the sweet and innocent one. He isn’t even allowed to date. Even if he could, there was only one woman he wanted. Ari. 
Ari knows she should move on. She just can’t stop thinking about the way Sookie makes her feel. How he makes he want more. She was not only his best friend’s sister, she was also part of his team as a lawyer. She was also four years older. She feels that she needs to protect him. From himself. They can never be but when management throws them a plot twist, it’s torture. 
I can’t really get into more but I will say it was one hell of a roller coaster ride. I feel for them. Hard. I am not a K-Pop fan but I am a fan of this series. It’s more emotional than I thought it would be and I am here for it. It’s also so funny, I just love this group. I am excited about the next one! 



The My Summer In Seoul books are standalone new adult romances set in the competitive world of K-pop. Each book in this series follows a different couple.

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.


Kara's Review

5 out of 5 stars

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!

I accidentally grabbed the wrong drink at the coffee shop. On the upside, the hot guy it belonged to chased me down to kindly swap with me. On the down side, the reason I grabbed the wrong drink in the first place is because the hot guy had just caught me checking out his ass…sets.
In my defense, his rear view is rather magnificent.
In true, humiliating form, I word-vomited a bunch of horrible nonsense. Including an unnecessary explanation of the trauma I’d evaded thanks to his chasing me down. Nothing could ruin my lactose-intolerant day faster than my one true nemesis: dairy.
I did not expect him to ask me out on a date after that.
I also didn’t expect the date to go well since my tendency to truth-vomit is high, and not everyone finds that quality endearing.
But apparently he does. Because he asks me out again.
And again.
Sidney Butterson (yes, it’s a weird last name) ticks all my boxes.
He’s smart, he’s funny, he’s employed and he’s ridiculously hot.
There’s one catch.
We’re both single parents. With teens.
And if our kids don’t like each other?
Well, we’re doomed.
5 out of 5 stars

Where it Begins is a novella in the Pucked series by Helena Hunting. Even wonder how Violet and Miller’s parents met? This is their story! Skye and Sidney…where have you been all my life! This story is so funny and sexy and sweet! I loved seeing how they met and fell in love and how nutty Skye is and where Violet got it from. Seeing Violet and Miller as teenagers was the best thing I never knew I always wanted! If you haven’t read the Pucked series, start here and you will never look back!

The Stand-In by Kristen Proby is now live! 


From New York Times bestselling author Kristen Proby comes THE STAND-IN, the newest novel in her beloved Single in Seattle series, featuring Drew Montgomery!


I don’t like my new boss. Not at all.

London Ambrose is a spoiled billionaire’s daughter. And now she’s the new co-owner of the Seattle football team, but that doesn’t mean that she knows diddly squat about football. 

There’s nothing I hate more than having someone micromanaging me, shadowing my every move, and giving me their two cents on Every. Little. Thing. as I coach MY defensive line. 

I don’t care about new team jerseys and branding or answering her million and one questions about how I do my job. But, I can’t help but come to her defense when an old flame shows up and starts harassing her. I’m a Montgomery. We don’t let anyone mess with women.

Now, I’m suddenly in a fake relationship, pretending to date the gorgeous billionaire and learning so many surprising things about this captivating woman that I just can’t seem to stay away from her.   

When the lines between our fake relationship and real relationship blur, and my initial distaste for her turns into desire, I find myself coaching the most important game of my life – do I let my guard down or do I let London Ambrose walk away forever?

5 out of 5 stars

The Stand-In is the fifth book in the Single in Seattle series by Kristen Proby. You can read each book as standalone but I recommend reading the series since this second-generation is so much fun, and it’s always a great time to catch-up witht their parents. 
Drew Montgomery was not a fan of the new co-owners especially London Ambrose. She came to the office for a few hours a day and for some reason she just irked him. She was nice enough but didn’t know anything about football and didn’t even show up to any of the games. As the newest and youngest quarterback coach, it would be nice to have a boss who knew the sport or at least watched it. Why come into the office, he didn’t get it until he offered to be her fake date for the evening, and that one evening changed everything…
London thought Drew hated her. Then he very sweetly came to her rescue and they started to get to know each other. He learns that just because she is a daughter of a billionaire that she is down to earth, sweet and loves the work she does with the team and other businesses. She is a hard worker and a complete badass. She learns that Drew loves the game, his family, and the boss when he needs to be. Together, they are so much! This is all new to the both of them and it’s a beautiful thing. I can’t wait for the next book!

Sandra's Review

5 out of 5 stars

Salems Song is the third and I believe last book in the The Curse of the Blood Moon series by Kristen Proby. Each book is about a different couple but the storyline runs throughout the series so you will need to start from the beginning. 
Three years ago Lorelei made the sudden move to California. She left her family and her soulmate behind. While gone she was able to avoid Xander and all the questions about their love life from her cousins but now, she was back. She could no longer keep them at an arm’s length. She was there to lift a curse and fight the unknown. She wasn’t there to fight for their love but Xander had other plans…
Xander has loved Lorelei his entire life. She is all he sees. He knows she has been avoiding him over the last three years, he gets it but he can no longer stay away. He needs to protect her. He needs to be close to do just that. He will not push her but he will just to show her that she can trust him and just in their love. It’s real and it will never go away. 
Will the core six lift the curse of the blood moon? Will Xander and Lorelei find their way back to each other? Will they defeat the unknown once and for all? 
I loved this couple and these series. Xander and Lorelei’s love runs deep but not without heartache. It’s one emotional ride. It’s also sexy, fun, and suspenseful. The whole series is just fantastic.

New Release & Review – Rafe, Nicole Edwards

September 26, 2023 | Posted in New Release, Review | By


A history of running… When Rafe Sharpe was eighteen, he put Coyote Ridge, his family, and everyone he knew in his rearview in order to escape his past. When he returned three years ago, everyone thought he’d returned to face the horrors that had shaped his existence. What he didn’t tell anyone was that he’d been running then, too. But settling in didn’t mean settling down because that wasn’t in the cards for Rafe, even if he was secretly pining for the beautiful, pure-hearted Bailey Weber. Despite being his greatest temptation, Rafe managed to keep Bailey in the friend zone, opting to be her confidante and protector, ensuring she believed her feelings for him weren’t reciprocated. After all, Rafe wasn’t worthy of anyone’s love. Not after what he did. The past and present collide… It isn’t until a handsome man from his past rolls into town that Rafe realizes what he was running from and what he’s been resisting would soon come together, becoming a powerful pull on the heartstrings he didn’t even know he had.

Kara's Review

5 out of 5 stars

Rafe is the eleventh book in the Walkers of Coyote Ridge by Nicole Edwards. I love the Walkers and their extended family and I will keep reading about Coyote Ridge and all the people who live and move there until the end of time. Rafe is Rex’s brother(Book 6) and he left town when he was eighteen to get away from his past. He came back home three years ago, but he still hasn’t moved on. He can’t seem to stay away from Bailey even though he knows he has nothing to offer her. He cares about her more than she’ll ever know, but he won’t ever tell her. When Holt, a man from his past, shows up in town Rafe doesn’t know what it means. Holt was the only man he’s ever been with and he hasn’t forgotten him. Holt and Bailey have an instant connection, but Bailey can’t seem to stop thinking about Rafe. And now she’s thinking about Holt and Rafe. And her! Together. Whoa! Where did that come from? But once it’s on her mind and in her dreams, it’s not going away. Can she love two men at the same time? They wouldn’t be the first throuple in town, but what does Rafe want? Holt? Holt came to town for Rafe, but once he meets Bailey he knows he’s not leaving. He and Bailey get closer and closer and once he finds out Bailey thinks about him with Rafe he knows what he has to do. Get Rafe to admit his feelings about him and Bailey. They can make this work. He knows they can. They just have to convince Rafe to let go of his past and let them love him. Wow! This was such a great story! I love these characters so much and I love the multi POV so you know what everyone is thinking. Rafe is tortured, but intense and full of love. Holt is cocky, and goes after what he wants. Bailey is fierce and had me cracking up! It was sweet, hot, sexy and emotional! I loved seeing old friends and can’t want for more from the series!



New Release & Review – A Love Catastrophe, Helena Hunting

June 16, 2023 | Posted in New Release, Review | By


The fur is about to fly between a cheerful cat sitter and a grumpy hockey nerd in this hilarious and charming rom-com from New York Times bestselling author Helena Hunting.

Kitty Hart has become internet famous as the Kitty Whisperer for her expertise on all things feline, and as a result, her cat-sitting business is booming. But lately, she has a terrible feeling that maybe her life isn’t quite going where it’s supposed to—especially after falling face-first into her newest client. Not exactly the best first impression.

Fortunately, Miles Thorn is just as bad at first impressions. Strike one: he doesn’t like cats, especially Prince Francis, the haughty and mischievous Sphynx his mom left in his care. Strike two: tackling her to the floor in a misguided attempt to save the pet he continually calls “the gremlin.”

As awkwardness slides into attraction and things start to turn purr-sonal, will these two complete opposites ever be able to find their furry-tail ending?

A Love Catastrophe is Helena Hunting’s newest fun and quirky rom-com. I love Helena and her books and this one is very entertaining and quite funny. I’m not a lover of over the top slapstick humor, so there were a few times where I just said “yikes” and kept going. I really love Miles and Kitty was fun. There was also a lot of emotions, and some deeper topics happening around the fun that balanced out the humor. I loved their meet cute and enjoyed their fun love story. They were supportive of each other and once they got over the silly antics of how they met, they were just too cute!
