BLURB

 

From New York Times bestseller L.P. Dover comes a story of passion, revenge, and twisted manipulation.

 

Ethan Jameson has it all. He’s one of the hottest fighters in the middleweight circuit and is loved by women everywhere. It seems nothing can stand in his way… except for the dragon tattoo that marks him as a target. He knew the day would come when Nikolai Michelson would seek out his vengeance. He even fooled himself into believing he was ready to fight back… until a one-night stand changes everything.
Peyton Emerson; Hollywood starlet and America’s sweetheart. She’s always wondered what it would be like to have Ethan to herself. After a drunken weekend in Vegas, she got the pleasure of finding out firsthand. But being with her comes at a cost. Peyton knows all too well how the paparazzi tear couples apart with their lies.
Still, there’s no denying that their one-night stand sparked something inside of them—a need for one another they can’t quell. Unable to fight their attraction, they work to keep their relationship a secret. Unfortunately, their efforts aren’t enough to keep an enemy from finding out and using that information to manipulate them both. When Peyton and Ethan are approached with a grisly demand, they have no choice but to accept. Those they love will pay the horrific price if they try to refuse…

Wanting the Fight is the third book in the Gloves Off: The Next Generation series by L.P. Dover. You can read series without reading the Gloves Off series but you totally will want to after reading this series, if you haven’t yet. I do recommend reading this series in order though since there is a subplot that follows the series. 
It all started with a one-night stand that changes everything…
Peyton and Ethan woke up in Vegas in bed together and agreed that it could only be a one-night stand between friends who were parting ways. Ethan was staying in Vegas for his fights and Peyton was going back to LA for some R & R before her next movie shoot. That was the plan anyway. Now, Ethan was going to LA and the sexual tension was thick all the way home. They fought their attraction while they were apart but when they are together…the attraction is just too much. Not only did they need each other in all the best ways but they also needed each other because they were in danger. They can try to hide from it but each of their generation was going to have their turn… 
I am loving this series. I read the original series so it’s awesome to catch up with them and now to read their children’s stories. The love. The suspense. The heat. It’s all there and then some. I can’t wait to see who is up next!

October 14, 2022 | Posted in Release Day Blitz, Review | By

 

 

 

Look, I had a rough week at work. So I put on a bikini and escape to the beach, where I wind up rescuing the city’s hot new quarterback from a rogue paddle board, and then he rescues me that night from a s-e-x drought.

Hello O-Town. Nice to see you!

The charmer with the magic hands wants another date too, and I say yes so fast.

But the thing is I’m the team lawyer for The Mercenaries. And the morning after the sexiest night of my life, I find out the guy I plan to see again was just traded to our team.

Dating the brand spanking new star quarterback?

Off-limits.

Especially when my boss blindsides me with this twist – I’m in charge of managing his reputation.

I really shouldn’t invite him over late tonight then.

Truly, I shouldn’t.

Contents include: sex hacks, text snafus, bedroom dares, major league dirty talking, and twists you won’t see coming in this sexy sports romance.

 

Two A Day

 

Kara's Review

5 out of 5 stars

Two A Day is the first book in The Girlfriend Playbook series by Lauren Blakely. We met Drew in The Virgin Next Door and I’ve been excited for his story ever since! He’s the starting quarterback who meets a sexy stranger on the beach. They hit it off immediately and then they can’t get enough of each other. He soon finds out Brooke is the lawyer for his team. Now she’s off-limits. Only she’s not ever too far away since they have to work together doing press for the team. The more time they spend together, the more Drew wants. They can have a secret relationship and the team will never know. Until it becomes very real and they don’t want to hide it anymore. Is it possible to work together and be involved? I loved Drew and Brooke! They were so much fun! And sexy, and flirty! Looking forward to more in the series!

Audio: I really enjoyed Jason and Rose together. I thought they were the perfect Drew and Brooke!

 

Sandra's Review

5 out of 5 stars

Two A Day is the first book in The Girlfriend Playbook series by the ever-talented, Lauren Blakely! You can read each book as standalone. If you love Lauren as much as I do then you know she loves crossing series’ so you have seen Drew Adams get around. Watching others fall in love, now it’s his turn…
Brooke’s week was full of potholes so she took herself to the beach with a good book. Hours into her relaxing day she spotted him. A paddle board hottie. One rogue paddle board oar later and they were having a good time full of innuendos, sarcasm, and margaritas. No talk of work woes, it was all about a fun time and they wanted more. They had plans for a second date till an audible was called due to being off-limits…
Drew didn’t see it coming. He knew she was a lawyer for the LA Bandits but now she was working with his new team, the Mercenaries. Part of her new job description was to help out with the team reputation since last season was a shit show of scandals. They can’t be the next one but they can be friends, right? Except Brooke and Drew don’t exactly think friendly thoughts when they are together or even apart. Their thoughts are sweet sure, but they are also flirty, and filthy at the same time. Will they be able to keep their hands off each other? 
Hell no and I am here for Drew, the dirty-talking Quarterback and his off-limits lawyer. These two are fire but it’s more than that. It’s real. The connection. The banter. The feelings. The spankings. I can’t wait for the next book!! 
P.S. That bonus! 💋
Quotes: 
My belly is doing a sexy tango, and I can’t quite think straight. This man is a fast talker with a dirty mind, and I am here for it. 
His mouth is the most exciting thing that’s ever happened to my sex life. 
My kink is words. 
Dirty, delicious words said to me. Said by me.

Release Blitz & Reviews – The Perfects, Rachel Van Dyken

October 11, 2022 | Posted in Release Day Blitz, Review | By

Everything was perfect. Until it wasn’t.

The Perfects by Rachel Van Dyken is now live!

Find out what happens when their perfect image breaks in #1 New York Times bestselling author Rachel Van Dyken’s steamy new adult romance.

Everything was perfect. Until it wasn’t. Until my family took on a foster girl and placed her across the hall from me. A charity case to look good and a person who should have never existed in my world. I kissed her to get her to stop talking, and then I kissed her again because I liked the taste of her words–I liked her. It was our secret until we got caught–that night changed everything. We became strangers living in the same house, seeing the same ghosts of our past mistakes, but I can’t stop thinking about us, about those forbidden moments. I pretend to hate her, I tell her I’ll never forgive her, and then Quinn, my ex-best friend, steps into the picture. I can’t tell if he actually likes her or if he has a death wish and just likes pissing me off, but what do I say? Stay away from my foster sister? She’s mine? I’ve already had her? Saying that to him would expose what we were and ruin everything. We’re all three of us living multiple lies, and eventually, I know our ivory tower of perfection is going to come crashing down. He knows my secrets. I know his. And now she knows both. She wants. He wants. But I always—always get what I want. And what I want is the girl, no matter what it may cost me.

Sandra's Review

5 out of 5 stars

The Perfects is Rachel Van Dyken’s newest standalone and it’s different than anything I have read by her and I am here for it. It’s an addictive, raw, beautiful, and heartbreaking story.  It was senior year and everything was perfect. That’s what the outside world thought anyway. The inside world was full of secrets, nightmares, and chaos. Everyone wanted what Ambrose had and all he wanted was to be free of it all. To be free like the birds. He had never felt that until she showed up. A girl with a black garbage bag in her hand. A girl who would be staying across the hall from him. A girl who set his world on fire. A girl who was forbidden. A girl he wanted and hated at the same time… Mary-Belle was new to this perfect life. It was everything people would want. Two parents. A mansion. Food. Oh, the food. She knew she was only there as a charity case and it wouldn’t last long but Ambrose made her feel safe and that was hard to come by in the foster system. She thought it was love until one night changed everything. He hated her. She was alone once again until Quinn walked in her life. A boy who knew how it was to be hated by someone so perfect. Will him being in her life be a safe haven or a mistake?  I can’t even tell you how much I enjoyed this book. From start to finish I was invested. Their relationships are complicated, beautiful, and I felt their connections on every page. Rachel killed it… Quotes:  “How can you be both such an asshole and such a gentleman? I don’t get it.”  “The world’s a confusing place, princess.” Well, apparently, Cinderella came out to play. “I’m gonna make you my bitch.”  “Fuck yes.”    

Kara's Review

5 out of 5 stars

The Perfects is a new standalone from the fabulous Rachel Van Dyken. I will read anything and everything Rachel writes. The Perfects is different from anything she’s written, but it still has all the things we love about a Rachel romance. Fun, sexiness, heat, loyalty, pain and friendship. Ambrose is perfect. Rich, handsome, adored by all. Mary-Belle is a foster kid who ends up at his house with all her belongings in a trash bag. She’s lived a very different life up until now. They click from the very start. They just see something in each other and it feels different. Ambrose doesn’t feel so alone and Mary-Belle feels safe. But one night changes everything. Now they are roommates who hate each other. Belle just wants to finish school and move on with her life. Quinn comes out of nowhere and wants to be friends. But he’s not just another guy at school. He’s Ambrose’s ex-best friend. There’s a lot of history and heartache there. And no she’s in the middle. But not really. The more things change the more Ambrose, Belle and Quinn realize they are all they have. They are family and they can get through anything the world throws at them. This story! Wow. I was on the edge of my seat trying to figure out what was going to happen next. At first I was happy and going with the flow and then bam! Then I was crying and shivering and wanting to cheat to the end to see what happens! But I know Rachel and she loves us and never does us dirty (ok, maybe that one time, but I forgave her). This was a story about love and friendship. Family and appearances. Expectations and deciding your own future. Overcoming the worst thing in your life and surviving. Trusting in the family you choose and letting go of the anger. Another “perfect” romance from Rachel Van Dyken!

Blair

 

Hooking up with my best friend’s brother was a mistake…an unforgettable one. It’s always in the back of mind and having returned to town has brought all those feelings rushing to the surface.
This time, I’m only here to cover my dad’s patients and help run the clinic—all work and no play. I haven’t even seen Gabe Rhodes since the steamy night we shared after he rescued me from a snowstorm. I need to keep it that way. Feelings make things messy and coming home has enough complications for me.
Avoiding him is going to be harder than I thought—turns out Gabe is my new co-worker, and the gorgeous physician isn’t just sharing the practice with me. He wants to share his bed too.
Gabe
Blair O’Connor is back in town, and back in my life…and if we’re not careful she’ll be back in my arms. Being forced to work next to the sexy pediatrician every day is a special kind of torture.
She keeps reminding me she’s only here for a few months—that she has a job to do. We both do. But that doesn’t stop me from wanting her. The green-eyed beauty has captivated me. I know being here isn’t easy for her, witnessing the life her dad built with a new family.
I just have to make her see there are other reasons to stay…like how good we could be together.

Pretty Incredible is the first full-length novel in the Pine Valley series by Lacey Black. There is a prequel short story called Pretty Remarkable that I HIGHLY recommend reading but not required. I read it last year in the Small Town Christmas Anthology and I wanted more and Lacey delivered.
It’s been six months since Blair was in her hometown of Pine Valley. Six months since she spent one night with her best friend’s older brother. She felt felt his touch, still thought of him every night, and still felt him in her heart. She wasn’t here for him though. She was in a town she very rarely visited to fulfill a promise to a man she barely talks to. Her father. A man who betrayed their family sixteen years ago. It was only going to be for four to six months then she would be back to Chicago. For now, she was going to help the small town as a doctor in her father’s practice. She was going to hang out with her bestie, and maybe reconnect with friends. She definitely wasn’t going to fall back into the arms of Hallie’s brother…
She was back. The woman who has taken up his mind over the last six months. Now, she was at his practice. Her office was right next door. Will he be able to keep his hands to himself for the next few months?
Hell. No.
I mean, why not have a fling while she was in town? The connection was still there. The fire was still burning from Christmastime. The flirt was on-point. The passion was undeniable. They had an expiration date and an understanding. They were adults. Professionals. They knew there were feelings. No denying that but all they could have were these few months. Right? Right.
I ♥️ Dr. Gabriel Rhodes. Just yum! Sweet, funny, sexy, and swoony. I also ♥️ Dr. Blair O’Connor. She is witty, fun, beautiful inside and out. These two are so much fun, flirty, sexy, and just click. I felt it back in the short story and I feel it even more now. The story isn’t just about these two doctors being good with their hands either. It’s about family, forgiveness, and moving on. It’s beautiful and raw. I can’t wait for the next book! I have a feeling I know who it’s going to be but if not, that’s okay, there are a few possibilities and I am here for both.
Quotes:
She’s the drug I crave, and I’m too weak to fight the pull.
“I’ve been thinking about you all damn day in a bikini, but this is…wow. You’re a vision. A fucking wet dream come to life,” he mumbles before claiming my mouth in a passionate kiss.
“Why, Miss O’Connor, are you wasting my shaving cream again?”
She gives me a Cheshire cat smile. “Maybe.”
5 out of 5 stars

Pretty Incredible is the first book in a new series by Lacey Black! I get so giddy when my favorite authors start new series’ and this one is fantastic! Blair left town when she was seventeen and never wanted to come back. Her father’s the local doctor and now she needs to go home and help run his practice while he’s out on medical leave. To her surprise, Gabe, her best friend’s brother and the man she spent one amazing night with months ago is now a doctor at the clinic. She’s only there temporary so what’s the harm in having a little fun while she’s there. Gabe is already falling for Blair and even though he knows she’s leaving he can’t help but hope she decides to stay. While in town she reconnects with old friends, spends time with her half-sister and spends her nights in Gabe’s bed. Will Blair be able to put her past behind her and choose love? Will Gabe be able to let her go when it’s time. Oh Lord! Gabe is so handsome and smart and swoony! And Blair is tough, smart and beautiful. They have amazing chemistry and fun banter.  I loved meeting all these new characters and Lacey is a master at setting up the next books. I already love them all!

Release Day & Review – Bad Deal, Annabeth Albert

October 6, 2022 | Posted in Release Day Blitz, Review | By

 

 

 

 

I’m a bodyguard and far from ideal boyfriend material, but agreeing to this fake dating scheme might be the best bad deal I’ve ever made…
I’m a fixer. As a SEAL chief, I succeeded in impossible no-win situations. Now I’m retired and determined to improve the lives of my former military teammates through our Hollywood security firm. Plus, I get to guard intriguing people like Ambrose Sterling, creator of one of my favorite TV shows.
Of course, I want to keep Ambrose safe. When he’s attacked, I leap into action to save him and his scrappy little therapy dog.
But my good deed results in a coastal road trip with me pretending to be Ambrose’s boyfriend to keep him out of more danger.
I don’t do relationships, and I’ve never thought about dating a man before, but here I am, sizzling with every touch and dreaming about more stolen kisses.
Each night of white-hot passion brings us closer to an unbreakable bond. But I’m blue-collar, and Ambrose is Hollywood elite. I want a happy ending more than anything. Can I turn this fake boyfriend gig into the real thing, or am I just a guest star?
BAD DEAL is book three in the A-List Security series. It features a highly protective SEAL bodyguard, a suit-wearing silver fox, an adorably ugly dog, and all sorts of brand-new emotions. Get ready for all the high heat, big feels, and found family feels readers expect from this fan-favorite military romance author. Join A-List Security for this lower-angst series featuring former SEALs and the celebrity clients who win their hearts. Happy endings and no cliffhangers guaranteed!

Bad Deal is the third book in the A-List Security series by Annabeth Albert. I’m really loving this series of these retired SEALs and the men they fall for. I’ve been waiting for Harley’s story since the first book! Harley takes his job very seriously. He’s also a nice, caring and laid back guy. He’s a retired chief so doing security is perfect for him. His current job, security for a tv show, one of his favorites. Guarding the creator of the show, Ambrose, is truly a pleasure. When Harley saves Ambrose from an attack, they get to know each other better. Their banter is so fun and Ambrose’s dog is the most important secondary character! Harley learned a lot about himself by watching this show. He’s not straight like he always thought. He’s pan and he’s attracted to Ambrose. He’s not struggling with it, he’s just trying to understand where he goes from here. When he needs to be a fake date for Ambrose to a family wedding, taking a road trip and spending time with Ambrose is just what he needs. They open up to each other about their families, their dreams and their attraction for each other. What happens when the pretending becomes real? Oh man! I loved Harley and Ambrose. I think this might be my favorite of the series. Harley was unexpectedly romantic and the right amount of dirty! They thought they were opposites, but found out they have more in common. It’s a slow burn romance that kept me entertained the entire way! I was excited when I found out this wasn’t the end of the series, so hoping we get to see more Harley and Ambrose!

Release Day & Review – A Little Too Late, Sarina Bowen

October 4, 2022 | Posted in Release Day Blitz, Review | By

 

How to behave when the guy who broke your heart two thousand miles away turns up in your office:

One: Don’t drop your lucky coffee cup in shock, even though it’s been ten years.

Two: Don’t get defensive when he asks how you ended up working his family’s ski mountain… and why you kept it a secret.

Three: Give him the worst room in the resort. He deserves it for suddenly waltzing back in like he owns the place. (Which he kind of does.)

Four, five, six, seven, eight and nine: Do not kiss him in the hot tub.

Ten: Try to keep your heart intact after you break all of your rules.

Because Reed is leaving again. Hate can’t turn back into love. And it’s a little too late

5 out of 5 stars

A Little Too Late is the first book in the Madigan Mountain series by Sarina Bowen, Rebecca Yarros and Devney Perry. Sarina is up first with A Little Too Late. It’s a fun, sexy, second chance romance and I loved it! Reed and Ava were colleges sweethearts and had a bad breakup. Ten years later Reed shows up to his family’s ski resort to find Ava working for his father. He hasn’t been back home in years and doesn’t really speak to his father or his two brothers. But his father is selling the resort and he’s there to help. Turns out he misses home more than he thought and after spending time with Ava he wants another chance. Now he just has to convince her to love him again. And he has to convince his father he finally wants to come home. I loved Reed and Ava! There was the perfect amount of humor and sexiness to keep me wanting more. I had the pleasure of listening to this and Sebastian York and Andi Arndt, two of my favorite narrators, were fantastic! They really brought the characters to life! The next two books in the series, A Little Too Close by Rebecca Yarros and A Little Too Wild by Devney Perry continue the story with Reed’s brothers!

Never Trust the Living

Battle Crows MC, Book 7

Lani Lynn Vale

Release Date: October 4, 2022

 

About the Book

It’s not every day that someone tries to pin a murder on you and a random girl you just met. But Bram Crow isn’t your average, everyday guy, either.

 

One second, he’s hiding evidence with the girl, and the next, he has to marry her so a police detective doesn’t get suspicious.

 

Did he mention that he had a long-term girlfriend at the time?

 

To say that things didn’t go as planned would be an understatement.

 

To say that falling in love with his wife, definitely wasn’t part of the plan, either.

 

Nor was her leaving me when I finally realized she was my world.

5 out of 5 stars

Never Trust the Living is the seventh and last book in the Battle Crow MCs series by Lani Lynn Vale. We have been waiting for details on Bram and Dory’s story since the beginning of the series! Bram is a first class ass. We know this. We still like him because we know there is a big story there! Turns out it’s even bigger than I thought! And his reasoning for treating his wife the way he did is solid. Could he have been better about it? Yes. Could his brothers (except Jeremiah, I love you) have been better? Absofreakinglutely. Bram loves his wife but he doesn’t know what to do. How to show her. He thinks she deserves better. And he doesn’t even realize it until she’s gone. They say it’s never too late to apologize, and I felt for Bram. And I think he did a top-notch job of showing Dory that he was wrong and he’s incredibly sorry. He’s going to prove to her that he loves her and he wants to be together. She just needs to open her heart one more time.

He does what’s best for her. Get her out of town. Somewhere she feels safe. Learn about her. Get to know her. But they have a past that seems to be following them and it’s not good. I was honestly worried what Lani was going to do. Again! I wasn’t prepared for the emotion, but in the end she gave us what we need. It was the perfect way to end the series! I’m sad to see these characters go but I’m hoping we might see them again somewhere. Overall, I laughed, cried, got mad, cringed and smiled some more. Bram really is delicious and Dory is strong as hell! She never gave up and kept fighting!

Release Blitz & Reviews – Final Proposal, K. Bromberg

Final Proposal by K. Bromberg is now live!

 

Fall in love with billionaire, Fordham Sharpe, and sassy businesswoman, Ellery Sinclair, in this all-new wrong place at the right time, forced proximity, office romance by New York Times bestselling author, K. Bromberg.

One stormy night.

One hotel bar full of stranded travelers.

One available chair next to a charming, mysterious, and sexy-as-hell man.

There was something about him and our conversation that made me feel alive. That made me feel heard. 𝘛𝘩𝘢𝘵 𝘴𝘱𝘢𝘳𝘬𝘦𝘥 𝘢 𝘧𝘪𝘳𝘦 𝘸𝘪𝘵𝘩𝘪𝘯 𝘮𝘦.

When our paths crossed again, I never expected the stranger to be Fordham Sharpe, one-third of the sinfully rich and ridiculously successful Sharpe International Network brothers. Nor did I expect we’d become partners—𝘧𝘪𝘧𝘵𝘺-𝘧𝘪𝘧𝘵𝘺in a hotel transformation that dreams were made of.

𝘔𝘺 𝘥𝘳𝘦𝘢𝘮𝘴, 𝘢𝘯𝘺𝘸𝘢𝘺.

To him, I was off limits. He was my venture partner, and we knew better than to mix business with pleasure. But we had one thing in common—we were both hiding. From our pasts. From unresolved family conflicts. From what really mattered—our hearts.

But as each day passed, our mutual attraction became harder to resist.

We agreed to the partnership to prove our worth to our families, but perhaps we’d only prove our need for something else. 𝘌𝘢𝘤𝘩 𝘰𝘵𝘩𝘦𝘳.

Final Proposal is the third book in the S.I.N. series by K. Bromberg. I really love this series and I have to say since the beginning, Ford was my favorite. There was just something about him that called to me. Maybe it’s the “middle” child thing. All I know is I love him. Period. He’s smart, funny, handsome and grumpy. Apparently I have a thing for grumpy men. But he’s also sweet and sensitive and genuinely cares about people. He’s feeling sad and angry the night he meets Ellery. They are trapped in a hotel bar in a storm and she just seems to calm him down. She’s cute and sexy and gets him talking. He even smiles. There’s an instant attraction, but she’s wearing a big ring. But they still talk and share things about themselves and then she’s gone in the morning. When they run into each other again it’s an auction to buy the hotel they were stranded in. What’s the best way for them both to get what they want? Be partners, of course. He has the hotel experience and the capital, she has the renovation ideas and the plan. Together they are a great team. He values her opinions and ideas and she trusts him. But they have to live together while the inn is being renovated. Are they strong enough to fight the attraction? I loved watching these two fall for each other. Ellery doesn’t do love and Ford is all about it. He loves his family and even though he’s been hurt in the past, he wants to find love like his brothers did. I love the relationship Ford, Callahan and Ledger have. It’s so special and fun. They can fight then laugh. That’s how siblings should be! Ford and Ellery had me laughing and then swooning! Even though I knew it was all going to work out, I was a little worried a few times. I even cried big fat tears twice! Kristy saved the best for last! Ford owns my heart.

5 out of 5 stars

Final Proposal is the third book in the S.I.N. series by K. Bromberg. You can read each book as standalone but I highly recommend reading them all since they are all unique and sexy. Triplets who find love in unexpected ways.
 
A woman walks into a bar…
 
Ford didn’t expect to meet her. A woman who annoyed him then fascinated him. A woman who made his night stuck in a inn bar during a storm worth it. She was not only beautiful, she was witty, smart, and… off-limits. And in the morning she was gone. Ford didn’t think he would see the mystery woman again but there she was a month later bidding on the inn he wanted for his new project. The inn they met in. An inn he wanted so would be seen more than just Ford…
 
Partners. Fifty-fifty.
 
Ellery didn’t expect to leave the auction with an inn and a new partner. She wanted this for her own. To prove to herself and to her stepfather that she was more than the coffee girl. And only knowing Ford for one night, she knew he saw her. Buying the inn was the easy part, living together in it was going to be the challenge. She felt a connection to him immediately but she didn’t do the love thing. She didn’t want it so she needed to keep herself in-check.
 
Easier said than done.
 
I ♥️ Ford and Elle! Their story is full of wit, flirt, sexiness, and emotions from beginning to end. They made me laugh, swoon, cry, and get all kinds of hot and bothered. It was great catching up with Callahan, Ledger, and the women they love.
 
Quotes:
 
“C’mon, Celery Ellery. Take a chance on me. Take a chance with me.”
 
“The best part about mistakes is sometimes you have to make them a couple times to know if they’re good ones or bad ones. I’m not picky, Elle. I’ll take either one when it comes to you.”
 
“You like these books. These scenes. How about I prove to you that what happens in books isn’t just fiction? That you can have it in real life too.”

Release Day Blitz & Review – Hallows End, Kristen Proby

October 4, 2022 | Posted in Release Day Blitz, Review | By

Hallows End by Kristen Proby is now live!

New York Times bestselling author Kristen Proby returns to tales beyond the natural and normal with her brand-new, captivating paranormal romance series that is sure to capture your heart and make you believe in magic.

Returning to her beloved home of Salem after a trip away, Lucy Finch can’t shake the feeling of anxiety that suddenly plagues her. Nor can she shrug off her third eye’s urging that she has a mission she must undertake—a secret she must uncover. As a green witch, Lucy has always felt strongest and the most at home in the forest, surrounded by nature. But when a disturbing dream wakes her and sends her fleeing into the woods, she isn’t prepared for what she finds. She expected her element. Perhaps a message from spirit. She didn’t expect to cross paths with a sexy-as-sin man, straight out of a movie scene. Jonas Morley isn’t like the other residents of Hallows End. He knows the town’s secrets, as well as Salem’s, and it has been his honor and duty to protect them for as long as he can remember. But the gorgeous witch who graces the town’s hidden border shakes him and makes him second-guess his directive. She calls to him like no other. But can he save his home and those under his care and still make her his? Or will their union mean danger and destruction for not only them but also those who live within the town’s borders? Curses don’t discriminate, and the curse of the blood moon is the most determined and dangerous of all. Hallows End is the first book in the Curse of the Blood Moon Series.

Sandra's Review

5 out of 5 stars

Hallows End is the first book in the The Curse of the Blood Moon by Kristen Proby. I loved her Bayou Magic series so I was so excited when she announced that she was writing another paranormal series.  If you read Serendipity then you have met Lucy, our first witch in the series to fall…
Lucy is a green witch, no she isn’t green, her magic is with plants and flowers. She has strong magic on top of that. She also owns an apothecary in Salem. Her aunts and cousins have a long history in the town and all have magical powers. The month of October is crazy busy with Samhain fast approaching. It’s a celebrating and a curse at the same time. It’s expected to have some unusual things happen around this time but what Lucy didn’t expect was him. A man walking in the woods behind her home. A man who shows up later in her shop. A man who has a pull of her like no other. 
Jonas has never felt anything like it. The connection to Lucy is undeniable. A connection that blew his mind. She was beautiful, sweet, smart, and witty. She was also in danger. They both were. They just didn’t know from who or what yet. Jonas needed to save a town and Lucy needed to save her family. It wasn’t the best timing for love but when is it ever? 
I really can’t get into the story but I can say I loved it! It’s a magical beginning to a new series that I am sure to totally fall in love with. These characters are badass, fun, beautiful and I can’t wait for the next book!! This couple is going to be explosive. 
Quotes: 
“You have an open invitation to touch me whenever you’d like, Luciana.”
“You’re kidding.” 
“Meow.”
You’re everything I’ve ever wanted and didn’t know I needed, Luciana.a

Release Day Blitz & Reviews – Tell Me A Story, Lacey Black & Kaylee Ryan

October 4, 2022 | Posted in Release Day Blitz, Review | By

Title: Tell Me A Story
Authors: Kaylee Ryan & Lacey Black
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: October 4, 2022

 

BLURB

 

Joey

 

I don’t want to be someone’s dirty little secret. I know all too well what that feels like.
Guarding my heart means staying out of pro football player Brock Williams’s bed and out of the spotlight. But after all these years, he’s exactly like I remember, charming, determined, and used to getting what he wants. And what he wants now is me.
The chemistry between us is undeniable. And the guy I always saw as a player is now the one who makes my heart beat fast—the one who leaves dirty love notes on my pillow.
Oh, yeah… he also happens to be my brother’s best friend.

 

Brock

 

Hooking up with Joey is a bad idea, but that’s not going to stop me.
I remember the first time we met. Joey showed up at campus to visit her brother, and when she came walking out in that little yellow bikini, I stopped seeing her as my best friend’s little sister and saw her as someone I desired but could never have. It turns out I was wrong.
For now, it’s stolen moments and promises on paper… of all the things I’m going to do once I make her mine. Her brother might not forgive me, but she’s worth the risk. I can’t deny myself any longer.
I’m tired of sitting on the sidelines. It’s time to execute the play and show Joey how our story ends.

Tell Me a Story is Lacey Black and Kaylee Ryan’s newest standalone novel. It’s a best friend’s sister sports romance and I am here for it. I love everything this duo writes and this is another book added to the list.
Brock has be traded to his best friend’s football team, the Kansas City Ramblers. Caleb is not only his best friend and teammate, his roommate. He is excited to be back on the same team and seeing Caleb every day. They have each other’s wingman back.  Except, a few days before their first preseason game, Joey shows up turns Brock’s world upside down. Sure, he remembers Caleb’s little sister, she was cute at eighteen but at twenty-five, she took his breath away. He knew he needed to stay away but the pull was too much. He wanted her. He wanted more than his next carb and that says a lot for an athlete (lol)…
Joey needed to get away so she decided to go stay with her brother. She thought it would just be the two of them but no, Caleb’s hot football playing best friend will be staying right across the hall. He had always been charming and crush-worthy but according to good Ol’ Google, he was also a player off the field. With the way she grew up she didn’t need that in her life but the chemistry between them was too strong. She didn’t understand it, why her? She didn’t think she was anything special but he treated her like she was his light in the dark.
Aw! I love these two. They are adorable, funny, sweet, and sexy. Their connection is beautiful, really. I don’t want to get into it any more but I will say that I am begging Lacey and Kaylee for a second book. 🏈
Quotes:
…When I take you to my bed, I’ll need time to savor you, because when we’re finally together, you’ll be screaming my name all night long, Sunshine. All. Fucking. Night. Long.”
“God, I’ve been waiting to kiss these lips for what feels like forever,” he whispers, sliding his mouth so easily against mine.
“You make me fall harder every moment we’re together.”
5 out of 5 stars

Tell Me A Story is Lacey Black and Kaylee Ryan’s newest best friend’s sister romance. I love their co-written books and this one is fun and sexy. Brock has had a thing for Joey, his best friend, Caleb’s little sister for a while and now they are living in the same house. Sneaking around is fun, but it’s not what they want. Will Caleb be supportive of their relationship? I loved, loved Brock! He’s funny, sexy and yummy! Joey is independent and gorgeous. Together they are perfect. I would love to see Caleb get his story! Wink, wink!
