Release Date: June 22

From Wall Street Journal & USA Today Bestselling Author M. Robinson & #1 NYT Bestselling Author Rachel Van Dyken comes a full length, standalone dark romance novel.

 

 

 

“Play for me, Juliet…”

 

 

Those four words whispered in my ear again and again until I craved what I used to fear.

 

Such a simple demand from my captor—the man who stole me and refused to tell me why he wouldn’t let me go.

 

 

I was his.

 

 

He made me need him, just as much as he needed me.

 

I broke all the rules of the golden prison he put me in.  

 

 

During the day he ruled his dark, seedy world.

 

His subjects and me.

 

 

During the night—he bowed before my feet.  

 

 

Have you ever wondered what happened to the villains in all the fairy tales you read?

 

You’ll soon find out.

 

 

It all started when he kidnapped me and made me his pet.

 

And it all ended with me…

 

 

Calling him master.    

 

*This story is not for the faint of heart and may be uncomfortable for some readers. But, then again, stepping outside of your comfort zone may be exactly the thing you need…

Sandra's Review

5 out of 5 stars

Courage is the first book in the Heroes of Big Sky series by Kristen Proby, one of my fave authors. You can start the series without having to read the Big Sky and Love Under the Big Sky series’. I have read most but not all of them so I do recommend reading those any time and you will want to after seeing their cameos. I ♥️ Cunningham Falls!
Sam and Natasha have known each other most of their lives. Tasha has always had a crush on her best friend’s older brother but he always just saw her as Natasha’s best friend. He knew she was beautiful but he is ten years older. He couldn’t go there when she was younger but she isn’t just a girl anymore. She is a full-grown woman. A woman he will always be tied to especially after his sister and brother-in-law die tragically and they are awarded custody of twin five-year-olds.
They are a family. Natasha has taken on so much since her best friend’s death. She never knew how much work went in to keeping the family together and sane. Monica made it all look so easy but it was anything but. Both Tash and Sam have to navigate being a family while also figuring out their relationship. Sam also has to make a life-changing his career as a fireman. All the while, they have friends who are more like family supporting them.
Overall, I ♥️ this family. The kids are hard to handle at times but so worth the fight. They are everything to Sam and Tash. Everything they do is for them. This book is fun, sexy, emotional and beautiful. I am excited about what is next to come in the series.
Quotes:
“No. Don’t cover yourself, Tash.”
“You’re just staring at me.”
“Well, yeah. Of course, I am. You’re so damn beautiful it hurts.”
If this isn’t the fast lane, I might want to rethink going into that lane because it could very well kill me dead.
“I’m here for this content. Give us deets. Use all the naughty words, and don’t leave anything out. If you forget something, you have to start over again at the beginning.”

Release Day Blitz & Review – Good Intentions, Ella Frank

June 21, 2021 | Posted in Release Day Blitz, Review | By

Gabriel Romero made me hungry for things I’d never wanted, and starved of the things I didn’t think I’d ever need. Until now… Until him…

Good Intentions, the all-new, seriously hot age-gap romance and the conclusion to the Intentions Duet from USA Today bestselling author Ella Frank is available now!

I was never the man who believed in love, romance, or happily ever afters. I was married to my work, and happy to be that way. Until one night, not too long ago, when an audacious young man lied his way into my life and showed me what I’d been missing.

Bold and sexy, with a face that could melt through the iciest of exteriors, Gabriel Romero is the one factor I never saw coming. There are so many reasons we shouldn’t work—my age, his, our career goals in life—and yet we are drawn together by a passion for music, and each other, that neither of us can deny.

I’ve always been the one to think things through, to follow my head instead of my heart. But if I don’t open myself to what’s possible, instead of thinking of all the ways this seems impossible, I might miss out on the best thing that has ever happened to me.

So I’m taking a chance, and laying myself at his mercy, opening my heart with nothing but good intentions. Only time will tell if Gabriel Romero decides to let me back in.

Good Intentions is the second book in the Intentions Duet.

Good Intentions is the second book in the Intentions duet by Ella Frank. You can not read this one without reading Bad Intentions first. If you are a fan of Ella’s but haven’t started this duet then do it! There are some cameos that you do not want to miss.

Gabe spent the week with Marcus and now it was Marcus’s turn to see how Gabe lives. No driver. No calling in for dinners. No fancy restaurants. They definitely have the chemistry but they are from two different worlds and have a twenty year age gap. They have fun, hot nights, and seem to get each other but is it all enough? They are both at a crossroads in their careers. They have important decisions to make but have only just started their relationship. Can they have it all?

Aw!! I just love this couple. They are both intense and adorable. They are just so much fun and full of sarcasm and heat. And, all the cameos…loved it. So much. I am hoping there is a spin-off for a certain someone. 💞

Quotes:

“I can’t remember what my days were like without talking to you, and I don’t want to.”

“I’m the oldest person in here for as far as the eye can see.”

Gabe ran a hand up my chest. “The sexiest too, and I bet you’re going to look real hot holding an axe.”

I narrowed my eyes. “I’m starting to really question your sanity.”

“Priest, you’re a lifesaver. Actually, Julien is. Let’s go eat before I pass out from hunger.”

“Or get even more delightful from it,” Mr. Madison muttered.

“Yeah, yeah, whatever. Come on, Gabe, you’re about to experience the best thing you’ve ever had in your mouth.” Priest chuckled as Logan stopped in his tracks.

Then my boss grinned at me. “Well, food-wise, anyway.”

Release Day Blitz & Review – Control Artist, Carrie Aarons

June 18, 2021 | Posted in Release Day Blitz, Review | By

 

 

 

Dahlia Akana has no idea where she’s going in life.

All she’s ever wanted to do is travel, and her inner circle pressuring her to figure out her purpose only makes her wanderlust grow stronger. But she’s comfortable being a nanny to her nieces in the small Pennsylvania town where her sister lives. Though she’s far overstayed her desired timeline, it’s a place filled with friends and familiarity while she plots her next move.

Until she meets the devastatingly gorgeous, obnoxious rookie who is slated to be the next superstar on the town’s top tier baseball team. He’s everything she doesn’t want, but can’t seem to stay away from. As they spend more time together, she discovers that he might just be the anchor she’s always looked for.

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?

Garrett Chester has always known exactly what he wants.

To be the best pitcher in the history of the major leagues. And luckily, with more talent in his pinky than other people have in their entire body, he’s well on his way. It’s his attitude that leaves something to be desired. Cocky, reckless and soaking up his newfound fame, the rookie attracts the attention of the tabloid press.

When he meets the feisty woman just as beautiful as the flower she’s named after, she gives him a refreshing reality check. With each passing day, not only does he fall harder, but she makes him want to be a better man.

Except the past that haunts him inevitably catches up, and ends up taking her down with him. Alone, exposed and cast out, it’s a reminder of the childhood trauma that has always plagued him. Can he put the rumors to rest, piece together a career in shambles, and be the hero she needs?

Sandra's Review

5 out of 5 stars

Control Artist is the fourth book in the Callahan Family series by Carrie Aarons. Each can be read as standalone since they are different couples but I highly recommend reading the series since they are tied together. If you have then you have met Dahlia (Hannah’s sister) and Garrett (the rookie).

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. ♥️

Quotes:

“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.

 

About the Author

prefers the love stories of her imagination, and the athleisure dress code, much better.

Genre: A Secret Baby Romance Collection
Release Date: June 15, 2021

Sandra's Review

5 out of 5 stars

Quarterback Keeper is Lacey Black’s newest standalone novella. I have read every word Lacey has written and have loved them all. She is becoming the queen of the surprise baby books!
Ashtyn had no idea that when she went over to celebrate her news with her twin brother, Alex, that she would end the night with his best friend, Tate. Tate, the hottest quarterback in the NFL as well as being the biggest playboy. She had only met him a handful of times over the last ten years and never thought in a million years that he even looked at her as more than Alex’s bookworm little sister. And she definitely didn’t expect that their one night together would change her life forever…
Tate is shocked, pissed, and in awe of Ash’s secret. He thought their night together was amazing even if he did leave like a coward by morning. But this? Why wouldn’t she tell him about having a baby. A baby! A cute little one who stares at him like he is his everything. He never thought he would want this but he is knocked off his axis. Can he and Ash make this work? Is there more than a baby between them?
Aw!! This is an novella but it packs a punch! So much story full of friendship, love, burps, and little cute baby toes. I loved it and kinda hoping for an Alex book. That man needs to find love.
Quotes:
The sexy librarian could very well have been the best thing to happen to me and my greatest mistake, all in one.
Trying to pretend he’s not there is futile, especially when his aftershave makes its way across the room. It’s a sexy woodsy scent that would turn the best of girls into a bad one.
“You might be right, but look what I did,” I state proudly, pointing down to the fresh diaper.
Ashtyn snickers, closing the dirty diaper and throwing it at me. “The quarterback has quick hands.”
5 out of 5 stars

Quarterback Keeper is a short, sexy, funny and sweet novella by the talented Lacey Black. I love a good brother’s best friend romance and add in a surprise baby? Double the goodness! Tate is Ashtyn’s twin brother’s best friend. They aren’t close, but they spend one night together, celebrating her new job, drinking and talking. He’s more than she thought he would be. And he wants her. She should say no, he’s a famous NFL quarterback, but she doesn’t want to. Their chemistry is too good to pass up. But then he’s gone in the morning, but never forgotten. She’ll always have his baby to remember him by. But then he shows up at her door with her brother and he’s not going to let her get away again. Tate hasn’t stopped thinking about Ash since the one night they spent together. He hasn’t been partying like he used to. Hasn’t been picking up women. She just got to him and he can’t believe she’s here. And she has a baby. One look at her son and he knows it’s his. And he’s not running away this time. Will Tate and Ashtyn realize there’s more between them than their son? I loved this story. So much! It might be a novella, but it never feels that way. It’s well developed, fast-paced and I fell hard and fast for the characters. Tate is sexy and sweet and I love the way he looks at her and his son. Ash is smart, funny and such a good mom. Overall, I laughed, teared up, smiled and loved it.

Sandra's Review

5 out of 5 stars

The Virgin Game Plan is the second novel in the First to Score series by the talented, Lauren Blakely. I was so excited when she announced she was writing a series with not only virgins but baseball!! I grew up loving the game. It’s the sport my family both played and loved to watch. And living in the Bay Area we had two teams. The A’s and the Giants so it’s fun that this series has two SF teams who are rivals. Ok, moving on…
Holden was only a player on the field. He needed to have a connection with a woman before he took her to bed. He also didn’t need distractions. His life was baseball. So when he met a woman who gave good flirty banter and knew her baseball, he was a goner. They spent one unforgettable afternoon and evening together. It ended too soon. Their plans axed a week later. It was over. Or so they thought…
Two years. It was almost two years since that day. Two years since they were in the same town, let alone room. It was fate that brought them back together. Then, a wrench is throw. Reese was Holden’s new manager’s daughter. He was new to the team. She was new to her publicist job. Risks all-around, folks. Off-limits. She was the forbidden fruit. Will they take the risk?
I ♥️ Holden. He is seriously swoony. Sweet. Funny. Smart. Determined. Reese is a badass with her love of baseball, coffee and retro clothes. I want to hang out with her. With them. They are fun, beautiful, and so lovable. I also love their friends!! I can’t wait for them to fall.
Quotes:
The man has a mouth for innuendo and lips made for dirty talk. Words seem to fall from his tongue laced with seduction.
“My God, you’re stunning,” I say as I regard the beauty in front of me wearing a red lace bra. ‘Look at you. Still in your power color.”
She bites her lips, nodding. “Is it working?”
“I feel powerless in front of you,” I say speaking from the truth of my bottomless desire for her.
“Is that a new location in Candy Land?”
“It is. You’ll find it a little east of Blow Job commons. Just south of Lollipop Woods.”
5 out of 5 stars

The Virgin Game Plan is the second book in the Rules of Love series by the fabulous, Lauren Blakely. I am loving this series something fierce! These characters just make me happy! They are all sexy, sweet, funny and talented. I’m envious of their friendship bonds and I want to be friends with the women they fall for! Lauren is the queen character development. She introduces us to them once and we are always eager for more. So much more! The Virgin Game Plan is Holden and Reese’s story. It’s fresh, flirty, and funny. Holden and Reese met years ago and had an instant connection. They talked, shared things about themselves and both wanted more after the night was over. Fate had other plans and their lives and dreams took them in different directions. Now, it’s two years later and they find themselves in the same town, in the same circles. And as soon as they see each other again it’s like no time has passed. They want to pick up where they left off. Until her father becomes Holden’s new coach. Now she’s off limits. But they can’t seem to stay away from each other. Is love worth the risk? I love this story! Holden is swoony, sexy, funny and smart. Reese is independent, knows who she is and talented. They are the perfect match. Career driven, but also want to follow their hearts. They show us that both are possible! This forbidden romance made me swoon so hard! The sexy, second baseman and the coach’s daughter have off-the-charts chemistry! 

 

 

Blurb:

A forbidden romance with the coach’s daughter wasn’t part of my game plan.

I had an excuse two years ago when I met her on campus. She interviewed me for a story on major league baseball’s rising stars, and we shared a hot, passionate night that ended far too soon, and without a mention of who her father was.

Now I know the innocent but sexy woman I can’t stop thinking about is the coach’s daughter.

That means her dad is the guy who determines if I bat fourth in the starting lineup in every game, or ride the bench.

All the more reason to resist alluring, confident, brainy Reese every time I run into the reporter-turned-sports publicist.

That ought to be easy enough, until the time she confesses she’s still carrying her V card, and she’s been wanting me to cash it in since the day we met.

Staying away from her is going to be harder than resisting a fastball down the middle.

Especially since I’m pretty sure she’s the one who got away, and letting her slip through my fingers again would be a rookie mistake.

Release Day & Reviews – 608 Alpha Avenue, Adriana Locke

June 8, 2021 | Posted in Release Day Blitz, Review | By

We are so excited to announce the release of Adriana Locke’s new novella, 608 Alpha Ave. This is a total standalone story about a grumpy, small-town mechanic and a pocket-full-of-sunshine heroine that gets under his skin. Basically—read this now! Even better is that the novella (did we mention that it’s a standalone?) is available in Kindle Unlimited.

Things heat up (and take an unexpected turn) when a self-proclaimed romantic requests the help of a broody small-town mechanic. Grayson Blake is a jackass. There’s no other way to put it. He comes into Fireside every day and orders a beer. It’s nearly impossible to get him to have a conversation while he drinks it. Smiles—or anything remotely close to it—are even more rare. Despite his cantankerous personality, he’s so freaking gorgeous. His thick black hair, broad shoulders, and the tattoos that mark his calloused skin draw me in like a magnet. I don’t even care that he’s ten years older than me. I’m here for the age gap. And his broody, bad-boy persona is entirely more attractive than it should be. I have a thing for the rough-around-the-edges mechanic. And I’ve heard through the grapevine that he has a thing for me too. But getting him to admit it will be as easy as catching lightning in a bottle. Buy Now for $2.99 or Read Free in Kindle Unlimited.  

Sandra's Review

5 out of 5 stars

608 Alpha Avenue is a standalone novella and part of the Cherry Falls romance collection. I have read 99% of Adriana’s books and have loved them all. This one is no different. It’s shorter but still has so much story between the words. 
 
Haley is a bartender by night and a lover of the outdoors with a dream of becoming a writer by day. On the nights she is working, he is there. A man who makes her weak in the knees with just one look. Shoot, not even one look, just hearing his voice or seeing him wave from his truck will do it. She crushed hard on the broody mechanic who sat on his stool every night while watching sports, a man who seemed to be annoyed by her. But, she had hope. She saw his smirk. He needed her help and she needed his. A marketing plan in exchange for a Q&A for her book. Easy, right? 
 
Haha. No. 
 
Grayson was a mechanic and outdoorsman. He was also ten years older than the woman he put in the “off-limits” box. She deserved more than a man like him. No, he wasn’t a manwhore but he could be an asshole. For some reason she liked that. He knew about her little crush. He shouldn’t be near her but he couldn’t stay away. Then, she goes and makes a deal. He didn’t expect one hike to change it all. 
 
Omfg!! I loved them. Haley might be only twenty-one but she knew what she wanted. Grayson is delicious in his alpha ways and his side of sweetness. I am so glad Adriana signed up for not one but two novellas in this series! 
 
Quotes: 
 
“Look at me, planning ahead like an adult.” 
Bryant’s laughter—something I’ve never pegged as annoying until this very moment—rings through the hardware store. “I love a woman with a can-do attitude.” 
Tread lightly, motherfucker.  
I glare at the side of his face, but he’s oblivious. 
 
Grayson is rough and grumpy. He’s raw. He’s roguish and irritable, and that makes him … perfect.  
It doesn’t help that he’s the walking advertisement for the word man with his beard and muscles and—gah!
 
“Lose your shirt too.”  
“I’m the boss here, woman.”  
“That’s cute.”

 

Kara's Review

5 out of 5 stars

608 Alpha Avenue is a standalone romance in the Cherry Falls world. I love Adriana and her books and this one was perfect! Smart, sassy leading lady. Sexy, brooding, alpha-hole hero. On the outside, they don’t even like each other. On the inside, they can’t seem to stop thinking about each other. Grayson has wanted Haley since they day he met her, but he’s older, a tad selfish and knows that one taste of her and he’ll never walk away. Haley can’t help wanting the jerky mechanic. But she knows he will never like her more than just a bartender and an acquaintance. Oh how wrong she is. A simple hike together quickly becomes a turning point in their relationship. Grayson has to decide if he’s going to walk away and never look back or take Haley into his arms and never let go. I loved this story! It’s short, sexy and packs a punch with all the feels!

 

Want more? “I don’t get it,” I mutter.   My hand stills against the countertop, a white bar rag clutched firmly in my grasp.  Natalia Barlow leans across the end of the bar, putting her ass and the top of her thong on full display for the table of bikers behind her. An unlit cigarette is perched between her cherry-red lips, threatening to topple to the floor as she catches me looking and smirks.  I roll my eyes and turn my back to her.   “I don’t get it,” I say again, louder this time.  My gaze fixes on the man—the only man—occupying a barstool on this side of the restaurant. Grayson Blake. Black hair, scruffy beard, tall, and oh-so muscular with tattoos etched into his tanned skin. Word has it that he has flames inked on his right hip, and when he moves, they dance as if they’re alive.  I’ve mentally filed that away because it’s something I’ll (sadly) never know for myself. Guys like Grayson Blake? They go for women like Natalia. Vixens. Women who give as good as they get. Women who understand them or, at the very least, the games they play.  I’m not one of those women. It will be both my personal and professional downfall.  Grayson lifts his beer bottle, and as if it pains him to do it, he slides his gaze to mine.  I swallow. Hard.  It doesn’t matter that I’ve worked at Fireside Bar and Grill for two years or that I’ve spent countless hours behind this very bar while Grayson sits on the other side, I can’t think straight when he looks at me. I also can’t look away. It’s quite the predicament.   “It just perplexes me,” I say, sinking my gaze into the steely depths of Grayson’s eyes. My voice isn’t quite as confident as it was a few seconds ago. It’ll come back around, though. It just takes a moment to get my bearings.  Grayson’s features are void of humor. Or emotion. Or curiosity. He watches me as if I’m a toddler and he’s in charge of making sure I don’t choke on a peanut or small coin.   I bite my lip. “I just … Natalia …” I shrug, my voice fading into the rock music playing overhead.  Grayson’s thick, engine grease-stained fingers grip the bottle. “Am I supposed to ask?”  The grit of his tone washes against my skin, leaving a flurry of goose bumps in its wake. It’s this way every time he talks to me. And whenever he talks to Corbin, the bartender who’s training me in the art of bartending so I don’t have to just waitress anymore. Come to think of it, I also have the same physical reaction to him when I’m in the Cherry Street Market Grocery Store buying bagels and I hear him talking from an aisle over.  Who am I kidding? I react this way every time I’m in Grayson’s proximity. Hell, I shivered in my flip-flops when I caught wind of his cologne outside of Pearl’s Pawnshop and Liquor Store last week.  “Are you supposed to ask what?” I ask him.  “About whatever you keep jawing about other there—about Natalia, I reckon.”  “Well, since you asked—” “I didn’t.” He smiles a lopsided, amused smile that makes me wonder if he’s smiling with me or at me. “I asked if I was supposed to ask. I didn’t ask.”  I narrow my gaze. “You know what, Grayson Blake? You’re an asshole.”  He brings the beer bottle to his lips, hiding a satisfied grin, and pulls his gaze back to the hockey game on the television in the corner.

5 out of 5 stars

Let Me Love You is the second book in the All of Me duet by the Queen of Twists, Siobhan Davis. You can not read this book without reading Say I’m the One first. So if you haven’t done that yet…do it now!! Go…enjoy!! I really can not say much about the story without spoiling anything. I can say that this duet is epic! I have been on some crazy emotional rides but this one is wild, heartbreaking, swoon-worthy, and poetic. It hit on every last emotion. It’s full of love, laughter, passion, twists, turns, loopy-loops, family, friendship, and angst. I couldn’t put it down!
I usually add quotes but I couldn’t even do that afraid of giving anything away. Holy. Fuck. Seriously, read this duet. The writing is addictive. The storyline is epic. The characters are so well-developed and fantastic. It’s one of my favorite reads of the year! 💞
*I received this book in exchange of an honest review.
