About the Book
He had a way of pulling everyone into his darkness. Then, to make matters worse, he convinced
you that you liked it there.
Kyle Davis—ex professional baseball player and current felon—loved Sara, his best friend.
Strictly platonically, of course. He’d do absolutely anything for her, even put up with Greer,
Sara’s other best friend.
What she was not was Kyle’s best friend. Or any friend at all, to be honest.
In fact, they couldn’t stand to be in the same room with each other, let alone breathe the same air
for any length of time.
Then something happens, forcing the two of them to work together to keep Sara blissfully
unaware of the danger Greer’s in.
They come up with a plan. Sara doesn’t need to know.
What she doesn’t know won’t hurt her.
The funny thing is, Sara knows all. Sara also knows the two of them are destined to be with each
She only has to convince them of it first.
Special Kind of Twisted is the sixth book in the Gator Bait MC series by Lani Lynn Vale. We finally get KD’s story! Woohoo! It’s a fun, sexy, hilarious enemies-to-lovers story. Kyle Davis or KD or Davis as Greer calls him, was a professional baseball player who did something to protect his sister and landed him in jail. He’s been out for a while and now runs a bodyguard company. Greer is his best friend, Sara’s other best friend. They have hated each other for years. Always arguing, pranking, and just being jerky. But you know what they say about love and hate. They are on a very fine line. It’s like all of a sudden, they notice each other. Only to realize it wasn’t sudden at all. When Greer needs a safe place to stay, Davis takes her in. One night in the same bed changes their relationship. They can have some fun and then it will be over. Except it’s too fun and too right. And then they want to really try. They just have to navigate all the other relationships in their life, the danger and see if they can stop hating each other long enough to fall in love. I really enjoyed this story! It’s one of my favorites of the series!

New Release & Reviews – Not Today Bossman, Lili Valente
May 19, 2023 | Posted in New Release, Review | By Two Book Pushers
Barrett McGuire is the grumpiest, growliest, most frustrating man on the planet.
He’s also my boss, my first crush, and—three months ago—my one and only one-night-stand.
I’m pretty sure I’m already addicted to his body, but that doesn’t matter. After an empowering solo trip to the other side of the world—during which Barrett made no attempt to contact me or discuss said one night stand—I’ve realized I have to let go of this crush and move on. I’ve wasted enough time pining for a man who doesn’t feel the way I do.
Now that I’m home, I’m determined to keep the walls around my heart high and impenetrable.
Then Barrett adopts the world’s ugliest dog because he knows how much I love animals. He also texts to say how much he missed me, then shows up at my house simply to devour my lady parts (while saying naughty things that give me a new appreciation for his bossy side).
He tells me he wants to change, to be what I need, then proves it with the most romantic “just one bed” weekend ever.
But can Barrett and I make it work in the real world?
Or will the scars on his heart ruin our second chance the way it did our first?
Welcome to Bad Dog where the men are incredible, the animals are ridiculous, and the happy ever afters are super emotional and steamy. Not Today Bossman is a Standalone Romance with Spice!
Not Today Bossman: A Bad Dog Novel is the second book in the McGuire Brothers series by the ever-talented, Lili Valente. I am loving this series! Barrett McGuire started wiggling into my heart in Boss without Benefit and now he is living in there.
It all started three months ago at the honky-tonk. Barrett just had to give Wren a ride home after the girls’ night was highjacked by two McGuire brothers. Wren has had a crush on her boss and friend’s older brother since she was twelve years old. The man was oblivious to it until…that night. And the next day Wren was gone…
She was hoping three months away from the man who ghosted her would be enough to move on. She was wrong. It was still complicated but he wanted to prove that he wasn’t the same man from that night. He saw her and he wanted more. Can they get a do-over?
Lili absolutely killed it with Barrett and Wren’s story. I love second-chances and small-town romance and this one was fire. Not only that but it was emotional. I cried a few times! I was full invested in their love story! I can’t wait for the next book, I know the banter is going to be epic.
I’m beyond language, beyond thought, beyond anything but hunger and bliss and the determination not to let Barrett’s body out of my reach ever again.
The pleasure is so pure, so sweet, so exactly what I’ve craved from this man for so long.
I kiss her without hesitation or fear, I kiss her the way I wished I’d been kissing her for years.
Not Today Bossman is the second book in the McGuire Brothers series by Lili Valente! I’m loving this series and these characters. We already know Barrett and Wren and we love them. Barrett is a great doctor, but his personal skills needs some work. He’s known Wren since she was a kid, but hasn’t noticed her until very recently. After spending one night together, he leaves without a word and she literally flees the country. Now it’s months later and he realized what he was missing and wants to show Wren he missed her and he wants more than friendship. Wren isn’t sure how things will be once she’s back. Even more so when Barrett starts acting nice and overly friendly. She doesn’t want to get her heart broken again, but she never stopped loving him. Barrett is going to show her that he’s changed. He’s ready to make the leap with her. Is she ready to put her heart out there? I loved this story! It’s fun, sexy and emotional! Looking forward to the next one!

Chapel Bend by Kristen Proby is now live!
From New York Times bestselling author Kristen Proby comes Chapel Bend, an enemies to lovers, small town romance in her beloved series, Huckleberry Bay!There’s a fine line between love and hate. In Huckleberry Bay, Oregon, everyone knows that when it comes to Juniper “June” Snow – what you see is what you get. When you hire her construction company to do a job, it’s done right, on time, and on budget. When she’s your friend, she’s a ride-or-die who will support you no matter what. And when you’re her enemy…well, she can hold a grudge. And she’s never forgotten how the tall, dark, and delicious Apollo Winchester hurt her so many years ago. In a small town, it’s impossible to ignore someone who greets you with a death glare every time you meet. Apollo can’t recall why June hates him, but it doesn’t stop him from stirring her up every chance he gets. There’s something about her stubborn, “don’t mess with me” attitude that keeps him coming back for more. But June is his sister’s best friend and permanently on the “off-limits” list. June puts aside her war with Apollo and hires him to work on her most important project, the renovation of a chapel into her dream home. She wants the best…and Apollo is the best . . . on the job site and in her bed. He won’t turn down the chance to spend more time with June, especially when it’s clear that she wants him as much as she hates him. Proximity leads to opportunity, and opportunity leads to steamy times between the sheets. But a mystery threatens June and Apollo will protect her and their growing connection, no matter the cost.

Release Blitz & Review – Runaway Love
May 4, 2023 | Posted in Release Day Blitz, Review | By Two Book Pushers
Runaway Love by Melanie Harlow is now live!
Yes, I’m a single dad who needs a nanny for the summer. But hire the stranded runaway bride who shows up on my doorstep in a wedding gown with no references, no skills, and no experience? No one is that desperate. Except within twenty-four hours, down-on-her-luck Veronica Sutton manages to charm my kids, my family, and half the population of Cherry Tree Harbor into believing she’s perfect for the job.And for me. It’s not that I can’t see the appeal-those baby blue eyes? The endless legs? That mouth made for trouble? But I’ve got enough on my plate, raising two kids on my own and keeping the family business alive. I don’t have the time or the inclination to fall for an outspoken city girl. So I should have kept my hands to myself. Holding her in my arms was a big mistake. Even worse? Spending the night together. She ignites a possessive fire in me that I’m finding hard to snuff out. But the most unforgivable? Growing attached to the sound of her laugh, the scent of her skin, and the way her body wraps around mine in the dark. At the end of the summer, she’ll be gone. And if I’m not careful, she might run away with my heart.

Limited Edition Husband is the fourth book in the Winner Takes All series by Lauren Blakely. I’m loving this series so hard. Nate has had a special place in my heart since the first time I met him and I couldn’t wait to get his full story! Nate’s not looking for love again, he just wants to have some fun. When he meets Hunter, a sexy Brit who’s recently discovered he also likes men, it’s like fate has stepped in. Nate invites him to Vegas to hang with his friends and they have an epic night of gambling, drinking, dancing and laughing. And they wake up and remember they got married. Now they have to keep it quiet until they can fix the mistake. But it’s already out and they need to stay married for a while. Nate knew the connection with Hunter was unlike anything he’s ever experienced. He might not want to be married, but he really does want to be with him. Can you date your husband? What happens when what you thought was a mistake is actually the best decision you’ve ever made? Oh hell! I freaking love Nate and Hunter! They are just so sexy and fun together. They want to try new things and experiment and just have fun in the bedroom. Turns out they have fun out of it too. I couldn’t love Nate and Hunter more if I tried. They are definitely one of my favorite couples of Lauren’s!
Audio: I love Nate and Hunter and Teddy and James were so perfect for them! I have loved Teddy for a long time and James is still fairly new to me, but he’s amazing! He’s the perfect British hero!
Limited Edition Husband is the fourth book in the Winner Takes All series by Lauren Blakely. You can read each book as standalone but I also recommend to read all of Lauren’s books since she is the queen of interlocking characters and series together. It’s so much fun!! If you read Top Notch Boyfriends and loved Nate and Hunter then you will fall for them even more! Lauren rewrote and expanded their story and this is it…
A one-time fling four months ago was undeniably hot before Hunter had to fly back to London. He was now back in the States for just a few days for work and runs into Nate Chandler. A star receiver for the SF Hawks who is going to Sin City for one night. No way Hunter was letting the opportunity go to spend one more night with the man of his dreams. A night of no strings attached sex? Yes! Except that one night of poker, bourbon, friends, music turns into I do’s!
This is not Nate’s first rodeo when it comes to marriage. He wasn’t looking for another ride. At all. Hunter was new to being in any kind of relationship with a man. They know it would be smart to get a quickie annulment but Nate’s agent, Vance has other plans. Thirty days. Thirty days of marriage to keep Nate in good graces with sponsors and his fans. They really only have one week to be together when they are both in London. They can do this. Fake their real marriage. A marriage that has an end date. It’s not like they will fall in love in a week or even thirty days. Nope. Never gonna happen…
Omg!! I loved them in their novella but this is so much more! Thank you, Lauren for giving us more Nate and Hunter. Yum!! I just love these guys. Their story is sexy but it’s also deep and sweet. Of course fun too. It’s so awesome catching up with some of the crew and can’t wait for the next book!

Manhandled is Lauren Blakely’s newest friends-to-lovers m/m romance and I am so here for it! It’s sexy and fun and even a little sweet. If you’ve read the other books in the Winner Takes All series, you’ve met Tanner and Luke. The handsome baseball player and the sexy quarterback. They are just friends. Really. Have been for a long time. Then Tanner sees something different about Luke. He’s always been good looking, but is he sexy now? When did that happen? And then Luke bids on Tanner at the auction and they have to go on a date. Just as friends. That doesn’t seem to matter when all of a sudden they can’t keep their hands off each other. But it will be just one night. Ok, maybe the next day too. But it can’t happen again, right? Sure, they can share a hotel room at their friends’ wedding. They will just go back to being friends. Except that’s not what Tanner wants. He wants more but can he ask for it? Luke is trying to secure his place on the team and thinks a relationship will derail all he’s worked for. But he doesn’t want to lose his friend. Is it possible he can have Tanner and football? Whoa! These two are freaking fire together! The sexiness is off the charts, so is the fun they have together. I laughed as much as I had to fan myself. I loved seeing everyone again! The men from this series have a special place in my heart!
Audio: Oh my Lord! Teddy and Jacob were fire as Tanner and Luke. Holy smokes! Some of their best work! I will say this all day, every day. Lauren’s words and Teddy and Jacob is audio gold!
LIMITED EDITION HUSBAND
A fake marriage standalone MM romance from #1 New York Times Bestselling author Lauren Blakely writing MM romance as L. Blakely…
One night with no strings was supposed to be the plan.
After barely escaping my last train wreck of a romance, I’ve got a new dating goal—play it cool.
I stick to that strategy when I bump into a charming Brit I met once before. He’s newly out and eager for all the things he’s never done, so I make the helpful suggestion we jet off to the city of sin for the night, then say goodbye.
But instead, thanks to a bet and some bourbon, we’re saying I do.
And in the morning I’m asking myself what the hell have I done? But we’ll just undo the holy matrimony right this stinking second.
Except, the pics of our nuptials are splashed all over the Internet–the pro football player eloped!
Great, just great.
Now, my agent says we need to stay Mister and Mister until the brouhaha blows over.
Thirty days as fake husbands with the sexy, irresistible guy who’s determined to prove that he’s nothing like my ex?
My bruised heart can handle that as long as I don’t fall for my husband.
And I won’t. When we split for real, he’ll be an ocean away.
Contents include: A sarcastic, romance-phobic American football player, a charming and dirty-minded young British businessman, white-hot first times, dangerous decisions, and a sexy, witty, emotional fake marriage, first times MM standalone sports romance!

Release Blitz & Review – Makes The Heart Grow Fouler
April 21, 2023 | Posted in Release Day Blitz, Review | By Two Book Pushers
NEW AGE GAP, SINGLE FATHER ROMANCE
Looking for a grumpy/sunshine, forced proximity, rockstar romance? Say no more! Carrie Aarons’ just released Makes the Heart Grow Fouler, and it’s just as steamy as it is angsty! A famous country singer is giving the first interview in his twenty year plus career to a much younger journalist and makes her move into his compound to observe him because he refuses to sit down and talk to her.
READ IT NOW IN KU: mybook.to/MtHGFBLURB:
Never meet your hero, because they’ll probably turn out to be a villain.
That thought didn’t even cross my mind when the magazine I work for assigned me to do a feature article on Dane, the greatest country singer of our generation. You know, the kind of celebrity who doesn’t require a last name because they’re that prolific.
Along with being one of my favorite artists, the notoriously private man has never given an interview in his twenty-year career, so this piece could make mine. Unfortunately, from the minute I step foot on his massive Texas compound, Dane is determined to break it.
Between his icy stares, lewd gestures, and mocking comments, the one week time table to ask him my questions comes and goes with zero answers. But for some reason, he won’t pull out of the article. And when he insists I move into his guest house in order to observe him, since he refuses to sit down one-on-one, I have no choice but to suck it up for my job.
After the year I’ve had, and the outside world I no longer want any part of, the seclusion is almost welcome. That is, if it didn’t include a sexy recluse who seems hellbent on messing with me. Working with someone I despise wouldn’t be so hard if it meant going home at the end of the day.
From his checkered past, to the rumors about his love life, to the fact that he vanished from the music scene five years ago, to the teenage daughter he’s raised as a single father her entire life … there is so much to unpack in order to learn the truth about the man buried beneath the ink covering his skin.
But the real danger comes when Dane drops the curtain completely, allowing me to see every side of him. Because it makes me want to show him every damaged part of myself.
Except two such opposite, but equally broken, people can never find a happily ever after. Especially since a villain has no heart. So what do I do when the fallen hero I can’t have wants to give me his?

About the Book
Her: Just a word, yet one person came to mind.
Morrigan St. Pete.
The woman that’d been hounding my every step since the day she was born. From the moment we first comforted each other in the hospital, to the day that I left her to follow her dreams, I knew that she was my one.
Through marriage, divorce, and a prison sentence, I had low expectations when it came to her ever coming around to my way of life. What kind of woman wanted a man that’d been to prison, had a child that disliked him and everything he stood for, and had zero prospects in life?
But then she popped into my life again, and that feeling of suffocation slacked off for the first time since I let her go.
The first time I tried to come back to Aodhan, I found him married with a kid on the way.
The second time I tried, he was heading to jail.
As one would say, the third time is the charm, right? Wrong.
The third time, he was divorced, fresh from prison, had a kid, and was again with his ex-wife.
That was the final nail in my coffin. I decided to give up.
I would do anything and everything I could to avoid him. Hiding wasn’t beneath me.
I only wish he’d stuck with my plan, because the moment he sees me again, it’s like he’s seen the light. Avoiding him is impossible when he goes out of his way to insinuate himself into every aspect of my life.
If only life was as perfect as my dreams.
The Voices Are Back is the fifth book in the Gator Bait MC series by Lani Lynn Vale. I’ve been wondering about Aodhon’s story since we met him. It was an interesting second chance story that had me scratching my head a few times. I enjoyed a lot about it and found it entertaining, but it wasn’t my favorite of the series. I did like Aodhon and Morrigan both and felt for them that they missed out on a lot of years together. Most of which were out of their control. Once they figured it all out they could truly be happy. Then they had to deal with a few obstacles and people in their way. Loved, loved, loved the Epilogue! Looking forward to the next in the series!

Review Tour – The Rules of Dating My Best Friend’s Sister – Vi Keeland & Penelope Ward
April 7, 2023 | Posted in Blog Tour, Review | By Two Book Pushers
The Rules of Dating My Best Friend’s Sister is the second book in The Law of Opposites Attract series by the fabulous writing duo of Vi Keeland and Penelope Ward. I’ve been hoping we’d get more stories from this group of friends and I’m so glad Holden was next! He’s the sexy, handsome drummer with a heart of gold. Yeah, he was a playboy, but he just never met the right woman. Well, that’s not entirely accurate. He met her years ago and had a major crush. She just happens to be Ryan’s sister! His best friend who passed away. He never thought he’d have the opportunity to act on his feelings, but now she’s living next door to him and the more he sees her the more he likes her. Yes, he wants her in his bed, but he just wants to be with her. Talk to her. Laugh with her. Like they used to do when they were younger. But she’s engaged, so friends it is. Well mostly. Holden can’t exactly hide his feelings or his intentions but he won’t cross that line. He might step over it and then quickly step back, but ultimately it’s Lala’s choice to make. I enjoyed a lot about this book. Mainly, Holden. I found him genuine and caring and I connected with him and his indecision to pour his heart out but afraid because he wasn’t sure what Lala wanted. He felt like she just wanted the physical when he wanted it all. I didn’t connect with her at all. She was just meh for me and I’m not sure if it was that line into the cheating or just the miscommunication that bothered me. I also didn’t love the lack of support from his best friends. Yeah, we know he’s not had relationships and loves women, but I thought they were pretty harsh and not understanding at all. I’m glad I read it, I really wanted his story, and in the end I was happy with the way it all played out. I loved seeing Billie and Colby again too!
