Enemies turn to lovers, but can they trust each other as they chase the same prize? A sexy romantic comedy adventure from #1 NYT Bestseller Lauren Blakely…
I live my life by three simple rules. Don’t mix business with pleasure. Always work solo. And family comes first.
But when I head to the tropics for a quick job and meet a fiery woman who makes my pulse roar, I can’t resist bending the first rule for her.
Trouble is, after we spend a scorching night together on the beach, I discover she’s my new enemy. The quick-witted and clever beauty is on a treasure hunt for the same damn prize – beating me in a race to find millions in stolen diamonds.
See you later, sexy stranger.
Too bad I keep bumping into my gorgeous rival all over this tropical paradise as we chase clues.
Maybe it’s better to partner up. But, the more time we spend together sneaking into nightclubs and art galleries, the harder it is to keep my hands off her. And soon, I’m not just sleeping with my very irresistible enemy.
I’m starting to give her my heart.
That breaks my biggest rule of all. Don’t ever fall in love. Because it always screws you over.
*Note: A Real Good Bad Thing will be entirely new to most of you! Some of you might have read an older series of mine called The Jewel series (now off sale). That two-book storyline serves as the source material for this new story, which has been changed to 1st person, and turned into a standalone, with all new dialogue, motivations, setting and so on! But if there’s a touch of the familiar to some of you that’s why!

THE WHOLE TIME
D’Angelo’s, Book 4
November 14,, 2023
The Whole Time is the fourth book in the D’Angelo’s series by Catherine Bybee. I’m loving this series full of Italians, family, friends, wine, food and love. We’ve met both Serena (family friend and Chloe’s best friend) and Ryan (Emma’s brother) before and I was so excited when I found out they were getting a story. Together! They are both wild, carefree, not interested in following in the footprints of their families and hard workers. When they meet at Emma’s wedding, sparks fly and some flirty shenanigans just make the night epic. Ryan knows Serena is skittish, but he’s in for the long haul. He’s going to wait her out, charm her and make her fall for him. It’s not as hard as he thought it was going to be! Serena wants to be on her own. Take care of herself and earn money her way. Being with Ryan jeopardizes that, right? He’s rich, she’s not. What will people think? Turns out, Ryan is more down to earth and sweeter than she thought. He’s also not flaunting his money and he works hard to earn his own. So what’s holding her back? Nothing really! When Serena decides she’s in, she jumps! I loved these two! They are perfect for each other. While both wild, they are also grounded. They are also adults who communicate. Serena may be less forthcoming, but Ryan knows this and loves it about her. A few secrets won’t tear them apart. I loved seeing the family again! Overall, I loved it! I laughed, teared up, cheered and smiled a lot. Ryan is swoonworthly!
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?

Rules of Dating My One-Night Stand is the third book in the The Law of Opposites Attract by one of my favorite writing duos, Vi Keeland and Penelope Ward. You can read each book as standalone but I recommend reading the series, it’s fantastic! The storylines. The characters. I was psyched for this book since we got a little glimpse at the end of the last book.
The Rules of Dating My One-Night Stand is the third book in the The Law of Opposites Attract by the fabulous writing duo of Vi Keeland and Penelope Ward. I’m enjoying this series and I have to be honest, I haven’t been a fan of Owen’s at all. But I wanted to read his book and I’m so glad I did! After getting to know more about him, I realize he was just looking out for his friends because he wants what’s best for them. He’s actually a loving, caring, sweet man which didn’t come through to me in the last few books. But once he meets, Devyn, a woman he spent one fantastic night with, he can’t stop thinking about her. She was gone in the morning and he never thought he’d see her again. Then he finds out she’s living in his building even if she’s just there temporarily. He can’t believe his luck! But she’s not all in. She has a lot to deal with and her life is in California. He needs to have her in his life even if it’s just as friends. He’s willing to wait and be there for her hoping she’ll want more. They get closer and finally admit they both want more. Now they just have to get past all the obstacles life keeps throwing at them and hope they make it out together. I love this group of friends and their loyalty, fun, antics and comradery. Devyn was also great! She had a lot going on and it was nice to see her open up to Owen. I’m looking forward to Brayden’s story!
Christmas Cupid by Ilsa Madden-Mills is now live!
From #1 Amazon Bestselling Author Ilsa Madden-Mills comes a brand new enemies to lovers holiday novella (40,000 words) about finding love in unexpected places.
Dear Sneaky Santa,
I’d like to have a word about your sense of humor. Was it really necessary to stick me, a professional hockey player nursing an injury and avoiding the media, in an isolated cabin with a bratty, boot-designing princess who seems to have made it her mission to despise me? I mean, come on, what did I ever do to you?
And let’s talk about our first encounter. Was it your intention for her to barge in on me while I was enjoying a soak in the tub? It wasn’t exactly my finest moment, and I’m sure she didn’t appreciate the view of my massive body floundering around as I tried to grab a towel.
Now, I’m stuck with her, thanks to a mutual acquaintance, in the middle of a snow blizzard, navigating through bear attacks, sketchy neighbors, and whole lot of tension. I had plans, Santa, plans to escape to Cabo and forget about the world, not to be trapped with a woman who thinks I’m unworthy of her time just because she can’t stand hockey players.
Oh, and speaking of our delightful Iris, she’s stingier with her food than Scrooge was with his pennies! I’m not asking for a feast, but a guy’s got to eat! And could you possibly turn her yippy dog into a reindeer or something? It would certainly add to the Christmas spirit and save my eardrums.
I’m trying to rediscover the meaning of Christmas, and you throw me into this chaos? Is this some kind of test, or are you just having a jolly laugh up there in the North Pole?
So here’s my Christmas wish, Santa: sprinkle a bit of your magic and either get me out of here or be a Cupid and ignite a fiery, undeniable passion between us, because right now, this scenario is frostier than a snowman.
Slapshotting Through the Snow, Kyler Blanchette

Christmas Cupid is a Christmas novella by Ilsa Madden Mills which had me laughing out loud, swooning and smiling a lot. It’s an enemies-to-lover, close proximity holiday story. Some of my favorite tropes! Kyler and Iris are stuck in the mountains, in a cabin, in the snow. They do not like each other and it’s not a secret. Over the course of the few days they are there, they warm up to each other as the temperature outside drops. Before they know it, they are decorating, knitting, cooking and really enjoying each other’s company. Once the lust-filled tension takes over, and they give in to their attraction, will they regret it in the morning. Or will they realize they have more in common than they thought and they are actually really great together? Oh boy! I really enjoyed this story. Kyler is sexy and freaking hilarious and Iris is nutty and funny. Together they had me laughing and cheering for them! Wouldn’t mind seeing them again, wink, wink!

One Dirty Night by Pepper Winters is now live!
“If you came here to get mauled, Ella, then…I’m very willing to bite.”
The night of my birthday looked as boring as the rest of my life. Sitting on my own, trying to avoid my insanely gorgeous but horribly mean flatmate, all while waiting for him to leave so I could have a party for one…if you know what I mean.
But that was before I almost crashed on the way home when a big top rolled into town. Before I locked eyes with the hottest guy I’d ever seen swinging a sledgehammer in the rain. Before I read the flyer promoting the newly erected circus. A circus that wasn’t the usual garish carnival…oh, no…this one was most definitely not for children.
Not unless you counted bondage, fantasies, and one dirty night full of heinously deviant fun.
Only problem was…my flatmate decided to get his freak on too. He saw me as I agreed to spend the night with the owner of said depraved circus…and he made me an offer I couldn’t refuse.
I get to be owned by two men, not just one.
I get to live out my wildest fantasies and teach Nicholas Davis a lesson for all those stony scowls and disdainful glances he’s given me.
He can have me for one night.
He can make me crawl, beg, and take me in any way he chooses.
But he has to share.
That is his penance.
And I mean to make him suffer…

If you read BTW: By the Way, then you have met Richard. This is his story! Richard needs a job and somehow Oscar gets him one. Oscar doesn’t think he can cut it so it is on! Boone needs a cowhand for his ranch. He isn’t picky, just needs help. His oldest friend, and ex, Oscar sends him Richard and Boone was not expecting him. He didn’t expect Richard to be handsome and funny and nice and sparkly. He also didn’t expect him to work his ass off and do everything he’s asked. Richard is not going to quit. He is going to show Oscar and everyone else that he can do this. He just has to stop having sexy thoughts about his boss. The older, handsome cowboy. But when they have to go rescue some cows who got lost they have to spend the night together. In a tent. In the rain. All bets are off! But when they get back to the ranch, will it be like their time together never happened? Or can they somehow make it work? Richard is supposed to go back to New York, but his life priorities have changed. A lot. And he’s not sure he wants to leave Boone or Wyoming. I loved this story so much! Boone and Richard are so cute and funny and sexy together! I love Boone and his romantic side and Richard and his overtly flirty side! I thought they were perfect for each other. Rugged cowboy and his sexy fashionista!
The furniture district is my personal hell. I don’t know my ass from an ottoman. But when a hot designer comes to my rescue, I realize my problems are bigger than the house I’m trying to furnish.
A scorching kiss over fabric samples makes me question all my choices. But is it too late to change my entire life to get more of them?
I need this gig, but my cocky new client leaves out a couple crucial details:
He doesn’t mention that he’s a famous hockey player. And he doesn’t own up to the way he’s always trying to undress me with his dark, broody eyes.
The man throws out more mixed signals than a broken traffic light. I’ve never been more sexually frustrated in my entire life. I need to back away before I do something stupid, like lose my heart.
Oops. Too late.

I’m Your Guy is the second book in the Hockey Guys series by Sarina Bowen. I was so happy when I found out we were getting another book in the series and Tommaso and Carter stole my heart! I had the pleasure of listening to the audiobook and Teddy Hamilton and Jacob Morgan (who are two of my favorite narrators and the first m/m duo I ever listened to) were freaking fantastic! Tommaso has an empty house that he needs to furnish and he hates shopping. When he runs into Carter, a designer, totally by accident, it seems like fate. He can hire Carter and not have to shop. Score! But the more time he spends with Carter, the more he likes him. And not just as a nice guy, he likes him likes him. But he’s not out. He can’t even think about what would happen to his career and his life. But the closer they get, the more Tommaso realizes he needs to live his life the way he wants. And he wants to be happy and be himself. He becomes friends with Newgate and sees how happy he is and he’s not pretending to be something he’s not. But can Tommaso make the leap? For himself? For Carter? Carter has never met anyone like Tommaso. But he’s a famous hockey player and he’s straight. Right? Not if that hot kiss is any indication. But he’s working for him and he can’t afford to lose his job. He just has to stop looking at his abs of glory and focus on his job. He loves the way Tommaso takes care of him, but he can’t fall for another guy who’s unavailable. But if Tommaso’s going to put it all on the line, Carter can too! Holy moly! I love them so much! They were so funny and sexy and fun together. I loved seeing some of the guys from the first book and of course Newgate and Gavin and am hoping there will be more in the series!
Nate and Oaklyn had no idea that when they both decided to stop at a dive bar on the outside of town that it would change both of their lives…
Nate just wanted one night to be himself. No VIP sections. No football groupies. No photographers. Just one night to just be. He didn’t expect when he sat down at the empty bar that the love of his life was about to walk in and fall… literally. The moment he saved her from hitting the floor, he wanted her. He was happy to just talk to her. But then, the unexpected happen… they have an explosive night. Then another and another. For not weeks but months…
Then boom! It was over. Their friends-with-benefits arrangement. His injury took him home. And years, later, he was back. Her body still crave his touch. Her heart still aches for him. He says he never forgot what they shared. That he still wants her and not just for sex. He wants forever but can she trust that he wont leave her again?
Love!! I do love a good second chance romance and Nate being a hot football player was an added bonus. Oh, and Oaklyn is a badass doctor. #PowerCouple. I thought their story was fun, sweet, hot, and overall fantastic.
