Where You Are is a fun, sexy and great story from Felice Stevens. It’s a standalone, but if you’ve read Influenced and Fall Guy, you’ve met Isaac and Levi. Isaac is a New York fireman who goes to Serenity, PA to train some volunteer fire fighters. That’s where he meets Levi. The sweet, younger man who is still struggling with his sexuality. He’s not ready to come out to his friends and family and his small town. Isaac isn’t going to force him to do anything he’s not comfortable with, but he wants to spend time with him. He’s attracted to him, but he also likes him. The more time they spend together the better it gets. It also gets more complicated. Will Levi be able to live his life the way he wants? What happens when it’s time for Isaac to go back to New York? They are mature adults just trying to be happy in a world that’s not always accepting. I felt for Levi and his struggle. He’s much stronger than he thinks! Isaac is just so fun, caring and good at his job. I really enjoyed this story! I loved the age gap and the sexiness! And all the friends and family!
Some men are just off-limits. Like, say, all the other football players in the league.
But I’ve been crushing hard on one quarterback in particular for the last year. When Jason invites me to his place the night before my first pro football game, I say yes so fast. Our white-hot time together answers a lot of questions I’ve had about myself.
Then life happens, and I don’t show up for our second date. The worst part is that he’ll never know how much it meant to me.
And when I’m traded to his cross-town rivals, I know that’s not the time to serve up my secrets either. My team’s PR department wants to double down on our rivalry.
And they’re right. I need to focus on football, not on my interest in men. But the more time I spend doing media appearances and charity events with the generous, quick-witted, popular guy, the hungrier I am for him.
It’s a bad idea to knock on his door late one night. I could lose everything. He’s probably not even home.
But then the door swings open, and I have a choice to make.
Contents Include: Forbidden nights, first times, sexy athletes, nosy friends, a meddlesome cat, and two men who are arch rivals.
The Boyfriend Comeback is Lauren Blakely’s new MM rivals-to-lovers, second chance football romance! I have been in love with Jason since we first met him in the Men of Summer Series (if you haven’t read that, go and get it now!) Every once in a while a book will just get you in the feels! It comes into your life at the perfect time and you feel it in your heart, body and soul. Jason and Beck’s romance is that book for me this year! There is just something about Jason’s positive attitude, openness, loyalty and humor that draws you in. Beck’s serious, but funny and his struggles made him more human! Together they complement each other perfectly. It’s not easy being the starting quarterback, especially when your crush plays for the city’s other team. It’s also not easy being out and proud in the sports world, but Jason and Beck make it work. They have their ups and downs, but their desire to be together is bigger than all the obstacles. Lauren never ceases to amaze me with her talent for writing deep, fun, sexy characters and she’s quickly become one of my favorite MM authors! Jason and Beck are two of my favorite characters of Lauren’s and you know I don’t say that lightly. There was just something special about these two. They are all heart and soul and their personal stories and their love story just got to me! I hope we see them again soon!
Audio: Teddy and JF were freaking amazing! I love this pairing more than I thought I would. They were the perfect Jason and Beck for me!

Available Now on Amazon and Free with Kindle Unlimited
“The spice was on point and the romance was swoony. A total must read.”
– The Boho Book Blogger
“This amazing story is dark and decadent, with the past never really being all it seems.
I loved his fierceness and his determination to make the past right again, with just enough Alpha attitude to give him a “lickable” edge.”
-Mere, Sweet Reads & Treats

– Nose Stuck in a Book Blog
From NYT and USA Today bestselling author A.L. Jackson comes an enemies-to-lovers, close-proximity, second-chance romance…
Logan Lawson won me in a bet.
The second I saw him sitting at the illegal card table, I knew I was in trouble.
Years ago, he sealed my fate and condemned me to a life I didn’t want to lead.
Yet he’s filled with untamed fury and thirsting for vengeance against the husband I hate.
Aster Costa is everything I never should have wanted.
The second she showed with her pompous, prick of a husband, I should have gotten up and walked.
But there’s no looking away from the woman who wrecked me.
Worse, I can’t stop myself from plotting to get her back.
I want nothing more than to be free of my husband.
I’m afraid Logan Lawson is the only one who can make that happen.
He might hate me for our past, but now it’s me on my knees begging for help.
Finding each other in the middle of it wasn’t supposed to be part of the bargain.
But once Logan touches me, I’m gone.
A torch is rekindled. A fire is lit.
Aster Costa has always been mine.
And this time, no matter the cost, I won’t give her back…

“What are you going to do with me?” “Whatever the hell I want.”
In Manhattan, tensions are rising. In a play for power, the Rossetti family has made a decisive blow, crippling their rivals—an act that has forced the Fiores to make a desperate move to maintain their supremacy. Many miles away, Luca Davis, a young medical student, has no idea his life is about to change. No idea that everything he’s been told about his life has been a lie. Enter Domenico Rossetti, the ruthless Mafia prince. Powerful and unforgiving, he’s a savage in a suit—and the one who holds the cards when it comes to his new captive. But when the war escalates and both are forced into seclusion, the two men are faced with a new threat: the rising sexual tension between them. You don’t fall for the one person you’re supposed to hate, but it’s a temptation neither can resist. Because falling in love with the enemy isn’t only wrong—it’s forbidden.

Battle Crows MC, Book 5
Lani Lynn Vale
Release Date: July 12, 2022
About the Book
Usually when you find out you have a stalker, you don’t fall in love with him.
But Banger Olivia Crest isn’t your normal, run of the mill, everyday girl. Banger is a truck driver who just so happens to know how to sling drinks in her spare time.
She’s had a bad hand dealt to her time after time, and the last thing that she wants is to go all in. At least, that’s until she meets the geeky biker with his shy looks, and his surprisingly awesome fighting skills.
Easton McKennick, ex-FBI agent and newest member of the Battle Crows MC, never really intended to actually reveal that he’d been stalking Banger since his early days in the FBI. In fact, he never intended to do anything at all when it came to the woman that held his heart.
That was, until she offered to be his fake date to a police ball that just so happened to be where his own stalker would be. To sell it that he was happy and he’d moved on from his previous relationship, Banger and Easton pretend they’re a couple.
All it takes is two hours for them both to realize that there’s not very much pretending going on.
The only problem is, Easton’s stalker put a bull’s-eye on their backs, and they don’t know how to fix it.

Get Tragic is the fifth book in the Battle Crow MCs series by Lani Lynn Vale. This is Easton and Banger’s story! I’m really enjoying this series and I had already fallen for Easton. We’ve been learning stuff about him over the last few books and I was so excited to learn more about the sexy, shy man. He’s been pretty much stalking Banger for years. He’s been chatting with her at the bar where she works, but never got up the courage to ask her out. Banger always thought Easton was intriguing and sexy, but when she quits and needs a place to live, she finds herself living with Easton. Now that they are spending more time together, the attraction is crazy hot. He finally admits to her that he’s been stalking her and she doesn’t even care. It just means she doesn’t need to explain all the horrible things that have happened to her in the past. Easton has always had a thing for her and now that she’s in his house, it is on. He knows once he touches her, he’s never giving her up. Easton also has a stalker and now that he and Banger have been seen together she keeps showing up. Trying to get Banger in trouble and then it gets worse. Now Easton and Banger have to worry about their lives. Good thing his brother, Trouper, and his MC brothers are there to help. Along with his team (who I love and hope we see more of). It’s a fast paced, fun, sexy story with some suspense and lots of laughs. Looking forward to more from the series!

More about the books inside:
Colleen Callahan is exactly where she’s always dreamt of being.
Hayes Swindell would prefer hell over the place he ended up.
Fate has other plans, though. If their forbidden chemistry is found out, it could mean the end of both of their careers. Except hurtling so close to the danger zone has never felt more right.
Should they head for disaster together, risking it all, or course-correct and save themselves the ultimate price of heartbreak and scandal?
Walker Callahan has loved from afar for as long as he can remember.
Hannah Giraldi never wants to fall in love again.
Can Walker risk his own future and show her how to trust again? Or will the feelings he’s kept hidden for years throw him out of the game before he can even attempt to play?
Is there a way to heal all of the broken parts, or will Hannah go down swinging while attempting one more shot at a happily ever after?
Sinclair Callahan is a trust fund baby.
Francesca Kade is an independent goal-getter.
Can he shoulder the responsibility he’s always shrugged off? Or will he balk at the real-life complications and strike out completely?
Will she ever be able to trust that he’ll put both her and his responsibilities before his vices? Or will their differences cost them the game?
Dahlia Akana has no idea where she’s going in life.
Garrett Chester has always known exactly what he wants.
When secrets, lies, and a humiliating public scandal rock their world, will she be able to stay with him? Fight for him? Or will her age-old tactic of fleeing erase any shot at a happily ever after?
Can he put the rumors to rest, piece together a career in shambles, and be the hero she needs?
All Anna Callahan wants is her independence.
Clark Nyle swore a long time ago he’d never be committed to anyone.
But, when their secret is finally discovered, it sends the already skittish bad boy running for the hills. And although she claimed to want freedom with no strings, Anna can’t help but feel the sharp pull to be with him forever.
When they’re found out, he’s forced to choose between his demons and the disapproval of his closest friends … or her.
Colleen has been training for this her whole life. She never expected it to happen at the age of twenty-eight while her father was carted off to prison but here she is…the new GM of the Packton Pistons. A baseball team that needed to work on its reputation after the family was disgraced by her father. She knew it would be hard being so young and a woman but now it’s all she has time for. Work. To prove she was made for this. To prove she earned her position. To prove she can bring this team to victory. And after meeting their new-star player, she is even more determined to prove that she is not her father.
Hayes doesn’t want to be there. He was supposed to be in LA with his team. Instead, he was in PA because of crooked Callahan and his illegal trades. He was stuck for one season then he was out. If he didn’t love the sport so much he would just slide by on this team. He hated the Callahans for what he did. They were enemy number one in his book. The problem? Colleen. She was beautiful, smart, professional, and he wanted her bad.
Off-limits: not to be interfered with, considered or spoke of. Yep! That is exactly these two. They don’t want a scandal or a bad reputation. A GM and a ball player would do just that. Then there is love. They just clicked even when they first met. Is love worth it? What will happen at season’s end? Will she prove to everyone including herself that she deserved her title? Will he go back to LA?
I ♥️ Hayes and Colleen!! If I didn’t start this book on a crazy day then I would had finished it in one sitting. I loved their banter and flirting. The sexual build-up. Their overall characters. They are just good people. I can’t wait for the rest of the series. I don’t know who is up next but I have an idea and I am for it. Thank you, Carrie for another amazing book and start to a series. 💞
Her body is liquid sin, flowing with its petite curves and exposed skin, that if I reached out and touched, would most likely slide like warm butter under my fingertips.
“You’re fucking beautiful like this. Hair down, wild and uninhibited.”
Right now, I have no idea what my future holds. But there is a ticking clock counting down in the back of my head, like something out of Peter Pan. Eventually, it’s going to catch up to me, like that goddamn crocodile.
Six years ago Walker watched the woman he loved walk down the aisle and towards his teammate, Shane. She was always Shane’s but he felt something for Hannah from the moment he met her. That connection only got stronger and stronger through the years from afar. They chatted at parties but never in a flirty way. He knew she didn’t belong to him but to an asshole. He didn’t get it but they had a family together. What he didn’t expect was what happened that night outside of the stadium. The night that changed everything…
Six years ago Hannah married a man she loved. Five years ago he started to show his true colors. He was an abuser. She stayed for her kids. She stayed because she thought she was weak. Now, she was done. She had to be strong for herself and for her kids. She couldn’t go back. It was time to start over but first she had to go through more hell. And by her side was Colleen the owner of the baseball team Shane used to play for. She also found safety with Walker. A man who was so sweet and was there for her one of her worst days. She saw and felt something between them but it was too fast to give her heat to another man. Could she even trust another man after what Shane had put her through? She also didn’t want a knight in shiny armor. She had to do this on her own.
Wow. I think Carrie did an amazing job at writing such a hard subject. I knew this one wasn’t going to be all hearts and rainbows. It made it more raw. Hannah is a badass woman and mother. Walker is a hot sweetheart. I loved them along with the littles. They are adorable and deserve happiness. All of them. I am excited for the next Callahan to find his!
Hannah doesn’t lean in, but she doesn’t back away. Coaxing, ever so slowly, I kiss her with the tenderness of a thousand feathers.
“Walker … you don’t want to date me.” She leans her head back against the seat, sighing as she looks at me.
“You have no idea how false that statement is. I’ve been waiting six years for a date with you.” My voice is quiet, but deadly serious.
“I know I’m not just seeing you, Hannah. Your girls are your world. I want to be a part of that, too. I’m not shy in telling you that I want every part of you, especially the part where you’re this fantastic, strong mother.”
Sinclair is the black sheep of the family. The party boy who can’t keep a job even when they are handed to him. His family ownsthe Packton Pistons, each member works for the team in some capacity. He hit rock bottom a little over a year ago and now it was his time to get in the game of life. One year sober and his father sends him to spring training to be an assistant video production manager. A job he didn’t earn but one he hopes to enjoy and stick with. What he wasn’t planning for was her. A woman who intrigues him from the moment he sees her. And, the perk was that she had no idea who he was. He hated not telling her, it let him be himself though. To not just be a Callahan but Sin. A man who made her laugh, hot and bothered, and have a spring training fling with.
That was what it was only supposed to be. Three months. No strings attached. Frankie didn’t want anything more than that but when he left, she was heartbroken. Now, she was in Packton with a promotion. She was excited about her new job. What she didn’t expect was to see him. And gets the shock of a lifetime when he is a Callahan. He might want to start fresh but can she trust him after lying about who he was? Was it all a lie? His feelings? His troubles? What else was he hiding?
I loved these two! Sin is more than anyone expected. I knew he was something but damn. And Frankie is a badass. She knows what she wants and doesn’t play around. They are both determined and motivated. Together, they are full of passion, love, and laughter. I am so hoping there are more stories in this series! I can see the next book…
Sinclair is trouble, that’s for sure. Just the kind of trouble I want to try several times before I know better.
“I wasn’t aware you were emotionally off-limits. Now my plan to get you to fall in love with me is thwarted.” She snaps her fingers as if to say aw shucks.
Like she said, trying harder is worth a lot. In this instance, it’s worth everything.
Dahlia moved to Packton two years to support her sister and nanny her nieces. It was supposed to be temporary but she hasn’t had the pull to move on. Yet. Which is surprising to her since she was a nomad and loved to travel and not settle in one place. Her family doesn’t get it. They just want her to be happy and Hannah doesn’t see that. Dahlia doesn’t see her future tied to one man! Children, and a white picket fence. She doesn’t want that. She wants to be free. Garrett would be perfect for just that. A roll in the hay with the rookie with a Texas drawl except he was just too young and too cocky for her. But he was persistent, and someone who is that cocky about his bedroom skills usually can back them up. Would giving up her resolve be worth it?
Garrett was new to this lifestyle. Money, women, parties, and everything he could ever ask for. He grew up poor and was living it up. He finally made it to the Big Show and after his rookie year, he was living high. Too high. No, not drugs. The lifestyle. He was arrogant, cocky, and stubborn. He knew his game was on top but now his personal life was hitting the tabloids. Baseball was his life. He wouldn’t go back to the trailer park. But what was wrong with having a little fun? And he knew he would have fun with the feisty Dahlia. He wanted her and he wasn’t going to just walk away from a challenge. But once he had a taste, he wanted more and more. To know her. To enjoy her. He might have been the playboy but she was the nomad. Would should take the risk with him to become more than sex buddies? Would the tabloids ruin everything before they could really get started?
This series just keeps getting better and better. I am not sure if there is more to come but I sure hope so! Garrett is cocky yes but he is also sweet, misunderstood, and a hot mess. I loved seeing all of his sides. The shameless flirt. And he met his match with Dahlia. She is a badass who feels a little lost but knows she will find her way. I love them both. Together, they are explosive and a little out of control, and sweet and it’s them. They made me laugh, cry, and get hot and bothered. ♥️
“I just met you, you’re my boss, and you’re complimenting my boobs? I think I found my new best friend.” I laugh.
She winks at me and takes on a valley girl accent. “That’s because I’m like, a cool boss, not a regular boss.”
“And a Mean Girls reference? Marry me.” I wink back at her.
“You feel like dancing, darlin’?” That deep voice is much too close to the sensitive slope of my ear. I don’t move though, and stop my body from swaying, not wanting to give him the upper hand.
“I hate country music.”
“Aw, sweetheart, that’s not what your hips were saying a moment ago.” That tone is pure sex.
His mouth is vicious, searing hot, and skilled beyond his years. He wasn’t lying when he said he could make me come so many times I’d lose my voice, because with the way his tongue is filthily commanding mine, I can feel an orgasm building. From just a kiss.
Clark was there drowning his sorrows. Anna was there after losing a patient. Two single friends. A little bit too much drinking. Some pent up lust. This book starts out with a bang and I am here for it.
Clark knew it shouldn’t have happened. Anna is his best friend’s little sister. She was off-limits and he was so not a relationship guy. He never went back twice. And he has known Anna since she was only sixteen. She was too young for him even if she was twenty-three now and he was thirty. She deserves someone who could give her more than one night. She was beautiful, sweet, witty, and didn’t let anyone especially him bullshit her. She told it how it was. And now, Anna was telling him that she is a woman who knows what she wants and it’s more sex with him. Without strings. Without telling her cousin, Walker. It’s none of anyone else’s business.
Anna was tired of everyone treating her like a child. A fragile child who can’t make her own decisions. She was a nurse for f*ck’s sake. She might be the baby of the family but she wasn’t some kind of princess. She was a badass who has wanted Clark since she was seventeen years old and if sex was all he was willing to give, she will take it. In the bathroom. In bed. In a plane. Up against the wall. You get my point. But she also wants to show him that he is good enough. He deserves more. But what will happen when feelings latch on?
I have been slowly falling for Clark throughout the series and his story was so worth the wait! This man has layers. He isn’t just the team playboy and fun guy. He is so much more. And Anna, I love her too. Together, they are fire and complications. It’s one hell of a ride!
I will never, not until the day I die, forget the look on his face when he stepped into me and grabbed the back of my neck. It was possessive, so fucking hot, and like he knew exactly how I wanted to be kissed.
My soul must be floating somewhere up above my body, because I swear I just died. Fucking died and went to lust heaven, because holy Christ, Clark Nyle is dirty talking to me.
“You have no idea how good you can be.”

Last night I made out with a gorgeous, funny, quirky older woman. Today I learned she’s the new executive chef at my restaurant. AKA my new boss.
Yep, that’s the hot mess I’m in at the moment.
But the chemistry between Natalie and me is even hotter.
The problem? She’s a single mom focused on helping her little girl adjust to life in the big city. Dating right now—especially a co-worker—is asking for trouble.
So, what’s my next move? Seduce the hell out of the woman, of course.
I may still technically be hanging onto my V Card, but I know how to drive a woman wild in bed.
Even more importantly, I know I’m the kind of man Nat’s looking for. I love hard, keep my promises, and I’ll put her and her daughter first.
And then I learn the real reason she’s been holding me at a distance…
Most men would be scared away. Me?
I’m even more determined to prove I can make this wounded woman’s dreams come true.
Seduced is the third book in the V Card Diaries series by Lili Valente. I am loving this series so much! Lili is giving us such fun characters with so much heart and they are making me swoon and laugh out loud. Oh Cameron, I knew I was going to freaking love you! You might be young, but you have your life together. You know what you want to do with your life, you know how to treat a woman and you know how to be a great friend. And you are sexy and fun and smart. Natalie is a business owner, chef and mother. She wasn’t expecting to meet a young, charming man who she connected with. And then when he turns out to work for her, she can’t go there. But really, she can and she does! I love that she is older and he’s the virgin. And just because he is, doesn’t mean he doesn’t know how to please her. I loved watching their love grow and how mature they are. I loved the way Cam is with Crissy, her daughter (swoon). I just loved everything about it. It made me laugh, cry, get hot and bothered and just smile. Everything I want from a romance!
Author of over forty novels, USA Today Bestseller Lili Valente writes everything from steamy suspense to laugh-out-loud romantic comedies.

Avery + Deck’s Story
Single dad MacKenzie Decker was a question Avery never got to ask, much less answer.
They met when she was a young reporter fueled by ambition, and the ink on Deck’s first NBA contract was barely dry. Years later, they’ve climbed so high and lost so much, but one thing hasn’t changed. The attraction that simmered between them in a locker room before is still there. With success like theirs, everything has been possible . . . except them.
But that was then.
The only question is…what about now?
Fast Break (formerly appeared in Team Player Anthology 2)
Quinn + Ean’s Story
I was a world-class runner once.
My dreams had wings spun from wind and speed.
Every time out of the blocks was a glorious flight.
But then I crashed and burned.
When I lost my leg, I thought it was the finish line
Little did I know, life was just beginning
Now they call me “America’s Titanium Sweetheart.”
(What can I say? It tested well. LOL)
The life I thought was over is moving so fast.
I have my own gym, a fitness app, a clothing line, and an endless trail of endorsements.
One thing there’s never time for? Love.
One thing I don’t have time for? Games.
Come real, or don’t come at all. In a field full of players, I’m looking for a real one.
Otherwise, I won’t stop.
I had hoops dreams. I wanted to be like Mike, jump like Magic and soar like Dr. J.
But a college injury grounded me. What I thought was game over, actually opened up a whole new world.
Fast forward to now. I’m coaching some of the NBA’s best.
They call me The Machine because I’m obsessed with stats and data, and my near-photographic memory means I remember every play.
I see the court clearly. But I never saw her coming. Quinn Barrow stops me in my tracks.
Pursuing my first championship, there’s been no time for love.
I’m more than willing to chase her, but will she slow down long enough to be caught?
Full-Court Press is a sports novella by Kennedy Ryan. Kennedy is one of my favorite authors! She’s extremely talented and everything she writes sings to my soul. This is a novella, but it feels like a full length novel. It’s full of heart, lust, angst, humor and love. Decker is a professional basketball player and Avery is a sports reporter. Decker wants her the first time he meets her, but she needed to protect her career first. When they see each other years later Decker isn’t going to take no for an answer. Avery can run but she can’t hide! Avery and Decker story is sexy, fun and I loved it! Decker is one of my favorite heroes of Kennedy’s! AND…we get extras from Long Shot and Block Shot!
Fast Break is a sexy, fun novella in the Hoops world by the fabulous Kennedy Ryan. Fast Break is Quinn and Ean’s story. Quinn is Banner’s best friend and Ean is the coach of The Waves. Ean is a smart, dedicated coach. He loves his job, numbers and statistics. He’s looking for someone to share his life with and he can’t stop thinking about Quinn, a woman who’s an inspiration to all women, people and athletes. When he gets a chance to actually meet her, he can’t stop himself. He’s nervous and awkward, but he’s not giving up until she says yes. He wants more than one night with her. He wants it all. Quinn has been though so much in her life. Losing her leg, overcoming depression, learning to walk and live again. She can’t trust men. She never knows what they want from her. When Ean keeps showing up and putting himself out there, she can’t help but want more. She’s afraid, but she’s strong. She’s a fighter. And Ean is so sexy! He’s tall, broad, strong and those glasses. Yes, please! This story is fantastic. Yes, it’s a sexy romance, but it’s so much more. Quinn’s story is emotional and inspiring. I really want to get her app! Ean pursues her, but it’s not pushy. He just knows he has to have her. Their story might be short, but it packs the punch of a full length sexy romance novel. And we get to see my man, DECKER, so that was a major bonus!

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.

Last on the List by Amy Daws was the perfect nanny, single-dad, age gap romance! I’ve loved Max for a long, long time and I’ve been waiting patiently for his story. He’s sexy and grumpy and he finally found his match in Cozy. She’s taking time to just be after working herself sick. She wants to do less and being a nanny is the perfect job for her. Everly instantly loves Cozy so Max hires her. He does not love her willy-nilly attitude, but since his daughter loves her he’s just going to have to deal. The more he sees and learns about Cassandra (he prefers to call her that) the more he’s attracted to her. She just ticks all his boxes with her feistiness, her generous curves and her smarts. I loved learning more about Max and what he thinks about love and his business. He’s also a boss mofo and kinky and he had me laughing out loud! Cozy is freaking hilarious and I loved how she embraced her plus-sized self. She is comfortable in her own skin and that is very refreshing. Everly stole my heart with her insight and matter-of-fact attitude. Together, the three of them were so much fun! Add in seeing the characters we love from the series and just being with this group of friends again made me so happy. I’m also very, very intrigued by Max’s brothers and I hope we are getting a spin-off series with them. Oh, please! Overall, I loved every minute of it and didn’t want it to end. I had the pleasure of listening to the audio and Teddy and Erin just killed this one! I love the way they laugh and cry and throw themselves into these characters. They brought Max and Cozy to life!

♥️ MORE OF YOU
More of You is the first book in A.L Jackson’s new series, Confessions of the Heart. Between this story being a second chance romance and A.L’s poetic way of writing, I knew I was going to fall in love. And I did. Extremely hard. I don’t want to spoil anything so I will make this quick. Jace walked away from Faith ten years ago. It tore them both up inside but Jace thought it was for the best. She deserved a better life than he could give her. He always knew she was too good for him. He saw the way the rest of the town looked at him. Never her. She looked at him with love and hope. But he knew she would be better off without him so he walked away. Ten years later and he was back. The chemistry is still there. The intensity of their past was still alive. They had to fight against it. He was there for one reason and one reason only. To do what was right. Will it break them even more or will it save them? I absolutely loved this story! It was emotional, suspenseful, and cute. It’s full of light, darkness, and all the shadows in between. If life of adulting didn’t get in the way, I would had finished it in one day. The writing is just as beautiful as the story. A.L never fails to give me all the feels. Quotes: “Help?” Her tone was sharp. “That was what he said.” “Oh, I’m sure he’d gladly help get you right out of your panties.” “The only repayment I need is that one day I might see a real smile on your face.” “I could look at a million other women. A thousand sunsets. Every exotic beach. And you would still be the most beautiful thing I’ve ever seen.”
♥️ ALL OF ME
All of Me is the second novel in the Confessions of the Heart series by one of my favorite authors, A.L Jackson. It can be read as a standalone but I do recommend reading More of You since it’s brilliant, sexy, and sweet. It is also where you are first introduced to Ian, Jace’s cocky brother. Well, now it’s his turn to fall to his knees. Ian is one of the most powerful attorneys in Charleston. He did whatever he needed to do to climb the ladder. To make it all the way to the very top. To run the firm. To be in control. He was ruthless in the courtroom and more so on the outside of one. Nothing got in his way. He vowed to himself when he was seventeen that no one would hold him back or push him down. He was only loyal to very few. His brother and his family, and to his best friend Mack. Nobody else mattered. Clients were just clients. Women were just for pleasure. He knew he was selfish and arrogant. Especially, when he wanted something. And right now, it was this woman. She had legs for days and he wanted them wrapped around his waist. Only she had other plans, like running away. Grace was in this room for only one reason. This man was not it. He was just like all the other men in the room. An arrogant prick who only wanted one thing. Well, he can want all he wants but she isn’t giving in. She didn’t get what she wanted from this night so she was gone. What she didn’t expect was that she would see Ian again and he was exactly what she needed. An attorney she somehow came to trust. One that wasn’t afraid to go toe to toe with the devil himself. Because he thought he was the devil himself. Ian and Grace’s relationship is off-limits. He can not sleep with a client. The problem? He already did. And he wanted another taste. Something he never wanted. One taste was usually enough. He never even craved that one taste with others, it was just a means to an end. But, with her? It was everything. She was changing him. But, they had to keep it professional. Even though, the sexual tension was felt by everyone around them. This was the biggest case of his career. It could bring him to the top. He couldn’t let her get in the way. I loved this book! So fucking hard. I can’t get into all the hows and whys without ruining the story but I will say it gave me all the feels. It has it all. Suspense. Heat. Love. Anger. Hope. Loss. Humor. I will even go as far as saying that it’s my favorite A.L book! It Overall…read the book! You will not regret it. It’s full of everything I look for in a book. Quotes: “I’ll just keep enjoying the hunt.” “You goin’ huntin’, Uncle Ian? My daddy told my mama you nofin’ but a dog.” “You make me feel like I’m standing at the edge of something brilliant. Something significant,” I confessed in a twined rasp of words. His beauty so intense it was almost a tragedy.
♥️ PIECES OF YOU
Pieces of Us is the third book in the Confessions of the Heart series by the ever-poetic and talented, A.L Jackson. It can be read as a standalone but I highly recommend reading the previous books because they are fantastic! I don’t want to spoil anything so I will make this fast. Izzy fell in love with the boy next door when she was four. She didn’t even know what love fully meant but she knew she wanted to marry him. Protect him. Be his everything. At seventeen, he broke her and she ran. And now at thirty, she was back in the town she said she would never come back to. Too many memories. Good and bad. Now, she just needed to avoid those feelings she always had for him. She couldn’t go down that road again even if he was everything and more. Mack is shocked to see her. Hit with a wave of wanting. He thought about her every day for the last thirteen years. He still knew he wasn’t good enough for her but she was just as tempting now as she was then. His best friend. His only love. He knows he hurt her badly but was this fate? Her being back. It was like he could breathe again. I absolutely loved, loved, loved this book! It’s such a beautiful story full of all the emotions. I cried probably a dozen times. A.L’s writing is also so poetic and this one just might be my favorite of hers. I felt their connection. Their bond. I loved the characters. I was invested in them. I loved the way Mack didn’t hide his feelings. He put himself out there even if he was in danger of being shot by her daddy. And I loved Izzy’s strength. Overall…it was epic!! I loved every minute of their story. It’s inspiring, sweet, sassy, sexy, and one emotional ride.
