Sandra's Review

5 out of 5 stars

The Rebound is the fourth book in the Looking to Score series by Kendall Ryan. You can read each book as standalone but I recommend you read the series since they are all so much fun. Saint has been no saint during the series and that is probably why I like him so much!
Saint needs to get his s*it together off the ice or he wouldn’t be on it much longer. The tabloids love him and it affects the team. It’s now the off-season and he needs to stay low. He thought he would be miserable but then he saw her. His hot new single and very pregnant neighbor. At first, he just wanted to help her. She was new to town and moving into his building. From the moment they spoke he knew they would be friends. She had a quick wit and just got him. One day turned into a few weeks of hanging out. Then he walks in…
Kinley didn’t expect Saint to end up being her only friend in Boston. He was hot and single and could be going out every night and bringing women back to his place. Instead, he wanted to hang out with her. She was enjoying their time together until her brother,  Reeves walks in and makes everything awkward. Now, she had to make a choice for her and her baby boy. Apparently, Reeves and Saint are not friends. At all. Does she friend-zone Saint or tell her brother to mind his business after all the help he has given?
This story might just be my favorite in the series. Saint is so unexpected. Yes, flirty but so much more. I just loved them together and felt so invested in their relationship. It’s a fun, sexy, and sweet ride.
Quotes:
“You coming?” Goddamn. This woman knows exactly what she’s doing. I slide a couple of dollars onto the stand and follow her lead. I can’t wait to see what she’ll do with a cucumber.
“We had dinner plans.” Kinley gives me an unimpressed look.
“I don’t remember making plans.”
I feign confusion. “I distinctly remember you saying that I could eat you out any night of the week.” Kinley flushes a bright shade of pink, holding the door open wider.
“Oh my God, Saint. Shut up and get in here before he hears something.”
“Yes, ma’am.”
“When I’m ready, you’ll be the first to know.”
“You know where to find me.”

New Release & Review – Jerk It, Lani Lynn Vale

September 11, 2021 | Posted in Release Day Blitz, Review | By

Jerk It

Madd Crossfit Series 2

September 7, 2021

 

About the Book 

 

Mavis always assumed that she would be in a hospital with the good drugs when her time came. Not in the middle of the road, with no one around but the damn town mechanic that hated her.

 

But there she was, having a rock star’s baby, with no one to rely on but the one that let it be known around every turn that she was a horrible person.

 

From the time that she met Murphy and became best friends with him at the age of eight, she knew he was destined for greatness.

 

But then her grandmother fired Murphy’s mom, forcing them to live on the streets, and making Murphy to realize that maybe they weren’t best friends after all.

 

Murphy loved Mavis.

 

At least, he had when he was younger, before she betrayed him.

 

From that moment forward, Murphy goes out of his way to stay the hell away from her, and always makes sure to never get too close. Even though everything inside of him screams to make contact.

 

When he moves back to town after being gone for five years, he tries his best to stay away.

 

But there she is at his CrossFit gym. Then having a baby on the side of the road. Oh, and breaking him a little more with each step she takes away.

 

Eventually, they find their way back to each other. The only problem is, by the time that Mavis makes her way back into his heart, it breaks. And not in a rhetorical way. In the ‘he only has days to live’ kind of way.

Kara's Review

5 out of 5 stars

Jerk It is the second book in the Madd CrossFit series by Lani Lynn Vale. I’m loving this series so far! We met Murphy and Mavis in No Rep and I loved their hate for each other! Now we get to see where it all comes from. They were friends when they were younger and Murphy felt betrayed by her. He moved away and now he’s back but he wants nothing to do with her. But that’s not exactly true. There’s a reason he wants her to stay away from him. But their attraction is too much. The more time they spend together the more the hate turns into red hot chemistry! It’s all foreplay and banter and barbs. When Mavis finally finds out why he tried to push her away, she vows to be there for him every minute after that. I’m not going to lie, I didn’t think it was going to end ok. I cried big fat tears. So much so that I had to stop reading because I couldn’t see. It broke my heart, then healed me then broke it again. I’ve never cried this much during a Lani book. It was SO freaking good!! Murphy is so imperfect he’s perfect. He’s not super muscular or ripped, but he’s so handsome and nice and funny. Mavis has flaws and I loved everyone of them. I love reading about characters who don’t look like models, but the love they have for each other is fierce. Already looking forward to the next one!

Release Day & Review – Hard to Love, K. Bromberg

September 7, 2021 | Posted in Release Day Blitz, Review | By

Hard to Love by K. Bromberg is now live!

New York Times bestselling author, K. Bromberg, is back with a heartfelt, enemies to lovers romance and a hero who redeems himself to steal your heart . . .

He was the one-night stand that didn’t exactly go as planned. Now he’s standing before me as if he’s never seen me naked, telling my manager he’ll take the job. Reluctantly. Finn Sanderson. Sports agent extraordinaire. Handsome as hell. The man who just signed on to control my every move. Sure, I’m to blame for my recent bad press, but when your whole life has been so regimented, isn’t it normal to want to live it up a little? But when the partying stops and the grief I’m running from has nowhere else to hide, reality sets in. Turns out, Finn’s the only person I have left to help pick up the pieces. The only person to call. Staying with him is a temporary thing. But when our fighting turns into laughter and our friendship turns into something more, will I fight for a man who swears he’s hard to love? Or is it wiser to walk away? To follow the plan? * * * Offering to help with a client is a way to repay a long overdue IOU to my mentor. Little did I know she was the woman who left my hotel room at four in the morning. Stevie Lancaster. Top-seeded US tennis player. Good girl gone bad. The woman currently about to throw her career away. And now my problem. The compensation to “babysit” her is great, but she isn’t worth my trouble. But when her world falls apart and she has no one else to turn to, I try to be a good guy by gathering her up and hiding her from the media’s eye. Now she’s in my house, in my space, and even though I’m enjoying the side benefits of this unexpected arrangement, surely she’s better to leave when the time comes and follow her destiny. Because I’m not the man she needs. Not the man she could love. Right?

Kara's Review

5 out of 5 stars

Hard To Love is the fifth book in the Play Hard series by K. Bromberg. I love nothing more than a good enemies to lovers story, but one where the hero has totally redeemed himself and stolen my heart? Yes, please! Finn. My Lord. I loved not liking you. And now I love freaking loving you. You stole the series and you delivered on every one of my expectations. You have a smart mouth and you were kind of a jerk, but you are so sweet and caring on the inside. And you had your reasons. Then here comes Stevie with her sexiness and her equally smart mouth. You know what they way about love and hate. Stevie just doesn’t need someone, she needs Finn. And he shows up. Helps her. Keeps her safe. While they get to know each other in and out of bed, Finn’s heart begins to thaw and he thinks maybe what he thought about women and love his entire life is wrong. Stevie didn’t mean to fall for Finn, but she did. It was inevitable. But what happens when she has to leave his safe space? Will Finn follow her or let her go? This is more than a love hate story. It’s about letting your guard down and trusting someone. It’s about letting yourself feel the pain and move on. It’s about embracing the hurt and making new memories. Finn is just delicious. I didn’t think I would fall so hard and fast for him, but I did and I’m not even a little sorry. Stevie is the perfect heroine. She’s strong, smart, talented and vulnerable. She didn’t need Finn to solve all her problems, she just needed time to figure out what she wanted to do with her life and Finn gave her the space to do it. Overall, I loved it! I laughed, cried, got hot and bothered and didn’t want it to end. It’s my favorite of the series and one of my favorites of Kristy’s and I’m not sorry about that either!

Release Blitz – The Aristocrat, Penelope Ward

August 30, 2021 | Posted in Release Day Blitz | By

 

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

 

 

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

 

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

Synopsis

From NYT and USA Today bestselling author A.L. Jackson comes a single-dad, enemies-to-lovers stand-alone romance about a jaded club owner and his son’s teacher…

Eden Murphy came into my club looking to make some extra cash.

A girl like her didn’t belong in a place like this.

She’d get ripped to shreds.

Most likely by me.

There’s nothing but sweetness dripping from her sexy little body, and I’m the monster who’s salivating to get a taste.

Trent Lawson is the last man I should want.

Dark.

Dangerous.

So wickedly gorgeous he makes my knees weak.

He’s also an arrogant jerk who happens to be my new boss.

When I discover his adorable son is also in my kindergarten class, I know I have to keep my distance.

 

But neither of us can ignore the attraction that flames.

One glance, and our hearts race.

One touch, and we’re aching for what we can’t have.

One night, and we’re falling fast.

 

Dragging her into my sordid world is wrong. 

It doesn’t matter.

Eden Murphy is mine.

Sandra's Review

5 out of 5 stars

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

Release Day & Reviews – Playing with Fire, Lili Valente

August 27, 2021 | Posted in Release Day Blitz, Review | By

Thou shalt not bang your best friend. That commandment would be a lot easier if Maddie wasn’t the sexiest siren ever to wade into a tide pool. Or if I was good at resisting temptation.

I’m the troublemaker, the firefighter who enjoys getting a little too close to the flames. And the trouble is double, since Maddie’s sister is about to marry my brother. That makes a tryst even riskier.

But it’s cool—we’ll keep our bang-a-palooza a secret from our siblings and keep things casual, so no one gets hurt.

The problem? Nothing about this thing with Maddie feels casual.
From the electricity between us to the way my heart flips when she smiles—everything I feel for her is intense.

But can we handle the heat when my past—and hers—suddenly come back to haunt us…

Playing with Fire is the third book in the Hometown Heat series by Lili Valente. What a great addition to the series! This is Jamison and Maddie’s story. Lili kicked up the heat for this one! It’s well written with the perfect mix of humor, sex and angst. I loved it. It’s a sexy friends to lovers story with a lot of heart, a little angst and a lot of heat! I have loved Jamison and Maddie throughout the entire series and I knew there story was going to be great! I loved Maddie’s sense of humor and Jamison’s sexy mouth. I also loved that we see MICK! 🙂 (Yeah, I might have a little problem.)

 

Sandra's Review

5 out of 5 stars

Playing with Fire is the third book in the Hometown Heat series by Lili Valente. Lili has re-written her Jessie Evans’ Fire and Icing series and I love it. It’s my first time with these characters and I love them and their small town. Each book can be read as standalone but I recommend reading the series. 

Maddie and Jamison have known each other their whole lives. They have always just been friends but a few months ago there was an almost kiss that both of them haven’t forgotten but haven’t talked about. Now, they are both at a singles’ camping trip with 33 other singles ready to mingle. They decide not to get into each other’s way. That was until Maddie drinks whiskey and dares him to go skinny dipping in the ocean. It’s one hot night as friends but will it turn into more? 

Maddie and Jamison have to be in the DL. There are some events coming up with the family and don’t want to rock the boat if they decide to split ways. Jamison hasn’t exactly been a relationship guy in the past and Maddie needs time to learn more about Jamison and his dating ways. She has always loved him as a friend but that doesn’t mean they are meant to be more than friends. Jamison wants her. He just needs to prove to her that she is special. 

I loved this couple!! I have been falling for both of them since meeting them in All Fired Up. Jamison is just so yummy, sweet, and I would totally fall in his smolder-web. Maddie is a sweetheart who wants to feel real love. She also has a dirty side she has been hiding. Together, I loved their banter, sexy times, and loyalty. They made me get hot and bothered, laugh, cry, and swoon. 

Quotes: 

“Come and swim with me, Jamison,” I say. “I dare you.” 

One heated look and I’m ready to get naked and shameless. 

“I like the way you think.” 
“And I like the way you kiss,” I say, pushing him reluctantly away. “So we’d better stop before my irresponsible side takes over.”

Release Blitz & Review – Flirt with Me, Kristen Proby

August 17, 2021 | Posted in Release Day Blitz, Review | By

Flirt With Me by Kristen Proby is now live!

From New York Times Bestselling Author Kristen Proby comes an all new novel in her beloved With Me In Seattle Series!

There are two things Maeve O’Callaghan values more than anything else: her family and her career. Being the eldest daughter in a large, close-knit and somewhat chaotic Irish family means spending most of her nights in the family-owned pub, serving drinks and food, always accompanied by a smile. During the day, she’s a superstar real estate agent, selling homes on her beloved island just across Puget Sound from Seattle. She doesn’t have time for much else, and she’s perfectly okay with that. Enter Hunter Meyers. He’s looking for a new place to call home, somewhere out of the city, and believes life on the island could be just the thing for him and his troubled teenage daughter. While in search of finding the perfect house, his sexy realtor catches his eye, making him feel things he hasn’t in years. But with the added baggage of a surly teen and a past that will never be forgotten, how can he make something permanent with the gorgeous Irishwoman who tempts him like no other? Maeve isn’t just attracted to Hunter with his killer grin and muscles for days. The teenager that tries so hard to push her away also pulls at her heartstrings. Maeve understands the importance of family, and can see herself making just that with Hunter and his daughter. But when his past comes back to haunt him, will their love be strong enough, or will they be ripped apart forever?

Sandra's Review

5 out of 5 stars

Flirt with Me is the fourth book in the O’Callaghans Series and the seventeenth in the With Me in Seattle series. I have read most books from each series and have loved them all. These families are #FamilyGoals. They are full of love, support, and passion. Oh, and celebrities.
Hunter has been a single dad since his fifteen year old daughter was born. She is his everything and lately she has been testing his patience and sanity. It was time for a change of scenery and pace so he decided to check out the island across from Seattle. He falls in love with it immediately and the bonus is the woman who works at the pub is also his realtor. He knew the moment he saw her that she would change his life forever. Over the years he never felt this way towards a woman. Has never introduced one to his daughter but he instantly trusted Maeve. It’s hard to do as a single father but also has a famous man in the fighting world.
Maeve loves her life on the island with her family. She works at the family pub a few nights a week and kicks ass at selling homes on her beloved island. She has been around tourists for years but he was different. He brought out the flirt in her. And to her surprised she sees him again to find him a house. She doesn’t usually mix business with pleasure but she also never been around a man like him. Sweet, funny, hot, and a shameless flirt who makes her melt with one look.
Awe! I love this couple. They are so fun, flirty, and damn sexy. I just love this whole family in general and how they always welcome new characters in with open arms. Hunter and Maeve definitely have some twists and turns in their relationship but love isn’t always easy. I can’t wait for the next book! Oh, it’s going to be so good.
Quotes:
“She’s sneaky. And I’m over it. When I’m done with her, she’ll think being a nun is liberating. I’ll keep you posted.”
“I’m going to do things to you,” I inform her as I drag my lips along her jawline, “that you won’t soon forget.”
“Oh, I have no doubts.”
“You’re too beautiful in the morning,” he murmurs. “I couldn’t resist you.”

Release Blitz & Review – Then You Saw Me, Carrie Aarons

August 14, 2021 | Posted in Release Day Blitz, Review | By

Then You Saw Me by Carrie Aarons is now live!

You know what’s guaranteed to send your heart into your throat? Opening the front door of your off-campus house to find the boy you had a crush on all through high school telling you he’s the new subletter.
 
Of course, he barely knew I existed back then, and still doesn’t even though we attend the same university. But in a house of six college kids, it should be easy to remain invisible while carrying a torch for him. After all, I’m skilled at being overlooked and playing second fiddle.
 
Except Austin Van Hewitt, my hometown’s golden boy, doesn’t get the memo. After we throw our first party of the year, I’m on his radar and somehow my lips miraculously end up on his. The budding romance is one I’ve always dreamt about. As he shows more and more interest, I push aside the plaguing insecurity of never being good enough.
 
But then a letter shows up in our mailbox. A time capsule I wrote to myself when I was fifteen. You know, the kind where a teacher sends it to you years later? Guess who opens it by mistake and reads all about how I plan on marrying him and having his babies one day? Did I mention I signed it using his last name?
 
Mortifying would be an understatement. After he starts pulling away, I’m once again the girl in the background hoping that someone will understand me enough to pay me all of their attention.
 
The old me, the one conditioned to settle for what she’s given, would back down. This time, though, if I want everything I almost held in my hands, I’ll have to speak up. I’ll have to admit exactly how I feel, fight for the love that was blossoming. And I’m not sure what’s scarier; voicing my inner thoughts or facing his ultimate rejection.

Sandra's Review

5 out of 5 stars

Then You Saw Me is Carrie Aarons’s newest college romance. I have read most of Carrie’s books and I do believe this one is one of my favorites. Three males roommates, three female roommates in one bad ass house next to the college bars. Lots of drama, fights, make ups and break ups. And Austin is the newest one to the house full of friends from their own town.
Taya knew they were about to get a new roommate when one was off starring in a dating reality show over the semester. What she didn’t know was that it was him. Austin Van Hewitt. Her first and only crush. A boy who never noticed her but she noticed him from afar when she was only fourteen to his sixteen. Now, he was in her house for the next few months. She was not happy with her best friend’s boyfriend. All she needs is to go unnoticed by him and to also watch him flirt with other girls under their roof. Only…he does notice her.
Austin doesn’t remember her. At all. He wants to kick his own ass for that since she is a knockout who is smart, sexy, and so easy to talk to once she doesn’t completely ignore him. Then he reads a letter not meant for him. A letter that confuses him. It brings him back to his hometown where people just want to be with a Van Hewitt. The name is everywhere in their hometown. He didn’t want it. He couldn’t trust easily. He thought she was different but after that letter he isn’t sure. Was it all a misinterpretation? Can he look past those words and move forward with the girl he can’t get out of his mind?
These two! They both have families who are just too much and it forces them to go through some ups and downs. I do think they are adorable, hot, and funny. Their roommates need to get their shit together as well and I am hoping this turns into a series!
Quotes:
“Keep saying my name, beautiful.”
“I see you. I will never forget you.”
“You just love that you can say things and I have no idea what they mean, don’t you?” I swat her butt.
“Kind of.”

Kara's Review

5 out of 5 stars

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

 

Sandra's Review

5 out of 5 stars

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

 

Blurb:

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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