The Red Zone, an all-new sexy, second chance romance from Amie Knight, is coming May 30th and we have the steamy cover!

The Red Zone FOR WEB.jpg

They say the red zone is the hardest place to score.

But for me, those last twenty yards were my sweet spot.

They didn’t call me Lukas “Last Minute Lucy” Callihan for nothing.

I was at the top of my game…until life sacked me harder than any linebacker ever could.

Losing my mom was devastating and left me as the sole person responsible for my little sister.

Taking care of Ella and juggling my career was like playing the hardest game of my life.

My only saving grace was Scarlett Knox, Ella’s sexy, red-headed, no-nonsense teacher.

She loved Ella. She hated me.

She thought I sucked at this parenting thing, and she wasn’t wrong.

But whenever she was around I got the same earth-shattering, heart-stopping feeling I did when I was only twenty yards from the goal line.

She made me feel like I was back in the red zone, a place I’d never fumbled.

Until now.

Blog Tour, 5 Heart Reviews & Excerpt – Boyfriend Bargain, Ilsa Madden-Mills

May 9, 2019 By

 

“Who can turn down a sexy hockey star with a big . . . stick? Zack is hot hot hot, and Sugar is the perfect blend of sweet and sassy! Their chemistry sizzles in Boyfriend Bargain!”

— Melanie Harlow, USA Today bestselling author

Boyfriend Bargain, an all-new sexy and emotional sports romance from Wall Street Journal bestselling author Ilsa Madden-Mills, is available now!

IMMBoyfriendBargainBookCover55x85_MEDIUM-new.jpg

Wanted: one hot guy with rock-hard abs and a big stick

Broke and desperate, Sugar Ryan has no use for arrogant, bad boy athletes . . . until she’s forced to bargain with the cockiest of them all.

If only he knew she was alive.

Her mission? Get on this hockey player’s radar any way possible.

Zack Morgan is the king of the ice and the bedroom—but nothing prepares him for the mystery girl who shows up everywhere he does—frat parties, his favorite bar, and finally his front door with an offer he can’t refuse. The only rule in her boyfriend bargain: no falling in love.

But after one (um, two) smoking-hot hookups, he’s done with pretending and vows to make their fake relationship real. Too bad she can’t trust a player with a reputation for breaking hearts.

Will this hockey star score his forever girl or will their Boyfriend Bargain end in heartbreak?

Sandra's Review

Boyfriend Bargain is Ilsa Madden-Mills’s newest sports romance that will make you swoon, get hot and bothered, and get all kinds of emotional. I loved every minute of it.
Sugar doesn’t want to deal with another womanizing asshole. Especially one who she could fall for. But, she needs this one. The hockey player who has a girl of the month. The one who has women crawling to him through co-Ed’s legs just to be seen first. It’s ridiculous. And she refuses to be one of those desperate women. So, she waits. And when they run into each other at a party it’s the start of something unexpected. She likes him. She is fucked.
Zack has seen her a few times over the last few weeks. And every time he did he was shook. He wanted to know more about her. He also wanted to know why she seemed to be everywhere he was. Was she another jersey chaser? Was she some kind of stalker? No. She wasn’t. She was more than he ever knew. She was a woman he could fall for and that was scary as hell. What he didn’t expect was that she wanted to bargain with him. And rule number one? No falling in love.
What will happen when Zack doesn’t want to fake it any more? When he wants to make their relationship a real one? Can he show her that he isn’t the womanizing hockey player that everything thinks he seems to be? I mean…he quotes poetry! He knows his books.
Overall…Awe! I love Z. I love Sugar. Together their banter is fantastic. Their connection is sweet, heated, and flirty. They also have their own issues. And that was one of the reasons why I loved them.
Quotes:
“You are not getting into my room.”
“Because you’re too chicken to be alone with me?” I huff.
“I am not—”
“You’re afraid you’ll take one look at my incredibly muscled, naked chest—”
“I’ve seen some chests, and yours is not the most incredible.”
“And you’ll faint like those ladies in the Jane Austen books—”
“How do you know what ladies do in Jane Austen books?”
He sighs. “I know my books.”
He bites his lower lip. “Keep talking like that and you might be able to talk me into a pretend wedding.”
I place my hand over my heart. “Bless your heart, I have more sayins’ if you wanna hear ’em.”
“Fucking you is everything.”
“Poetry, Z. Pure poetry.”

Boyfriend Bargain is Ilsa Madden-Mills’ newest college, sports romance. I’m a huge fan if Ilsa’s and she always entertains me with her fantastic writing and smart, funny and interesting characters. Zack is a top hockey player. Destined to be one of the greats. He’s also rumored to be a giant player who goes through women as fast as he changes the tape on his hockey stick. Sugar isn’t quite stalking him, but she needs something from him. She doesn’t expect the electricity between them. Yes, he’s gorgeous and talented and it turns out quite smart, well read. He quotes poetry for the love of God! Z can’t help but agree to help her but he wants something in return. Yes, it’s pretend but after a getting to know her he wants more. He’s never wanted anyone this way. He’s not who everyone thinks he is. He loves his family and hockey and he needs Sugar in his life. It’s a lot of pressure to be the best and he’s trying to figure it all out. Sugar isn’t going to fall for this sexy man with the hair and the body. Right? Well, life has a way of giving us what we need when we least expect it. Will Z show Sugar he’s more than she thinks? Can Sugar trust Z? There is so much more than just a college, sports romance going on here. Z and Sugar have so much going on in their lives. They have pasts that seem to keep coming back to get them and insecurities that haunt them. I loved watching them fall for each other and learn how to let the other in. There were obstacles, but they are smart and never lost sight of who they were and what they wanted. Overall, I laughed, cried, got hot and bothered and fell in love with Z and Sugar.

 

I can only imagine what’s perfect in the Hockey Player Hookup Handbook. Three orgasms, like a hat trick?

 

He talks about Poe like he’s his bestie. A man that knows his literature and looks like a Greek god. Well, I clear my throat. That’s a turn-on.

 

“May I kiss you? Please?”

“Okay, but none of that fancy tongue work.”

“Afraid of falling in love with me?”

“No.”

“Liar. Why else say it.”

 

“You like my stick?”

“I can’t believe you just said that.”

“You were thinking it.”

“Oh, you’re not only a sex machine but a mind reader too?”

“Sex machine? I like that. Go on, please. Tell me more – and use that deep Southern accent when you say it.”

“We should kiss, just get it out of the way and move on,” I say, sure of the crazy idea as each second passes.

There’s a hitch in Z’s breath, and his eyes go straight to my lips. “Works for me.”

“But just one. None of that fancy tongue work.”

“Afraid of falling in love with me?” He grins.

Well. My eyes take in the broad shoulders and the dragon tattoo on his muscled chest. He’s definitely my type: pure, grade A male hotness—exactly what I don’t need. “I won’t fall in love.”

Another grin. “Liar.”

About Jennifer

From the Ground Up was Jennifer’s first published novel and now that she was bitten by the writing bug, has no intention of ever stopping. Jennifer makes her home in small town Iowa with her high school sweetheart, three beautiful, hilarious and amazing kids, one crazy Jack Russell terrier. This is where her love for all things reading, baking, and cooking happen. Jennifer’s family enjoys camping, boating, and spending time outside as much as possible. You’ll be her best friend if you can make her laugh and follow up with asking her what to read next.

Blog Tour – Dance with Me, Kristen Proby

May 8, 2019 By

Dance With Me, an all-new novel in her beloved With Me In Seattle Series by New York Times Bestselling Author Kristen Proby, is Live!

Dance With Me AMAZON.jpg

Starla. Just Starla.

She doesn’t have a last name, and she doesn’t need one. Not with that many Grammys on her mantel. Everyone knows her kick-ass, no-holds-barred style of singing, dancing, and living.

No one knows that America’s Sweetheart is still living with the wreckage of four years ago, when her world was torn apart. Losing her fiancé was devastating, but she’s channeled all of that into her music. Closing off her heart opened a hundred new doors.

Officer Levi Crawford, Seattle PD.

For almost twenty years, Levi has been consumed by the law. He eats, sleeps, and breathes work. Not just because he’s a workaholic, but because he loves it. Sure, he doesn’t have time for a woman and barely sees the rest of his family, but it’s a trade he’s always been happy to make.

Until Starla.

Two lonely hearts could learn to beat again, if they’re willing to dance together.

Sandra's Review

Dance with Me is the twelfth book in one of my my favorite series, With Me In Seattle By Kristen Proby. I can’t believe it’s the twelfth. I sadly got behind and need to read the last three. They have been waiting to be read on my iPad since their releases and they will be read soon. I am so mad at myself for doing that to them! Anyway, back to Dance with Me.
It starts out with a bang. Literally. Then the ghosting happens. Starla doesn’t have regrets but she does feel guilt. It’s been five years since she was with someone and that last someone was her fiancé. The one she lost almost five years ago. So she walked away from the sexiest cop ever when she left Seattle to continue her tour. And now, she was back and he wants answers.
Levi enjoyed their night together. More than enjoyed actually so when he hadn’t heard back from Starla, he was hurt. He wants to know what happened. And when he finds out she is in Seattle, staying at their friends’ place he goes straight over. And those feelings of happiness and lust hit once again. This time though he wants to take it slow. He wants to get to know the beautiful woman with sass and grace. He wants to make sure she knows this isn’t just a fling. But, can she handle that? She is only there for three months. Then what?
Awe! These two are so cute. They are also sexy, funny, and sweet. Levi is protective, hot, and doesn’t hide his feelings. Starla is down to earth, guarded, and beautiful inside and out. I enjoyed the slow burn of their story. Also the suspense of what they are going through. This isn’t just a love story. There is some trouble happening that needs to be done with.
Overall…it was a sexy, fun, suspenseful, and beautiful ride. I loved the characters. The storyline. The writing. It was also fun to catch up with past characters! This group is something special. It was also fantastic that they characters are in their thirties and forties!
Quotes:
“Where are we going?”
He sighs and stares at me in frustration. “Can’t a man surprise you just a little? I’m sweeping you off your feet here. Go get dressed.”
“Thanks.” I grin at him and almost melt into a puddle when he winks at me before walking away.
“Do you have a crush on Luke?”
“Don’t you have a crush on Luke?” I counter as we walk down to the Nirvana exhibit. “He’s ridiculously handsome.”
“I’m going to have to kill him,” Levi mutters, making me laugh.
“Jesus, you’re beautiful.”
“And you’re overdressed.”

About Kristen:

Kristen was born and raised in a small resort town in her beloved Montana. In her mid-twenties, she decided to stretch her wings and move to the Pacific Northwest, where she made her home for more than a dozen years.

During that time, Kristen wrote many romance novels and joined organizations such as RWA and other small writing groups. She spent countless hours in workshops, and more mornings than she can count up before the dawn so she could write before going to work. She submitted many manuscripts to agents and editors alike, but was always told no. In the summer of 2012, the self-publishing scene was new and thriving, and Kristen had one goal: to publish just one book. It was something she longed to cross off of her bucket list.

Not only did she publish one book, she’s since published close to thirty titles, many of which have hit the USA Today, New York Times and Wall Street Journal Bestsellers lists. She continues to self publish, best known for her With Me In Seattle and Boudreaux series, and is also proud to work with William Morrow, a division of HarperCollins, with the Fusion Series.

Kristen and her husband, John, make their home in her hometown of Whitefish, Montana with their two pugs and two cats.

Blog Tour & 6 Heart and 5 Heart Reviews – Debase, Rachel Van Dyken

May 2, 2019 By

Debase, the final book in the Eagle Elite Series and the first new book in the Elite Bratva Brotherhood by #1 New York Times Bestselling Author Rachel Van Dyken is Live!

Debase_eBook_PROOF5.jpg

With blood on my hands, I held her.

With death in my soul, I took from her.

With the devil in my heart, I coveted her.

There are many definitions of Hell.

My list was exhaustive, my definitions tragic.

Tonight I was adding something new to the very top.

Girl number six thirty-two.

She arrived on my birthday, the same day, every year, I play Russian Roulette and pull the trigger.

She was my omen.

My end game.

She made it personal.

And for the first time in my life, I gave in.

A virgin mob boss with no soul.

My name is Andrei Petrov.

They call me the devil.

All I want is for the pain to end.

All she wants is for me to share it.

I am the last remaining heir to a dynasty that should burn in Hell.

And my last wish remains for it to die with me.

Sandra's Review

Debase is the eleventh book in the Eagle Elite series. It is also the first in an all new series, Elite Bratva Brotherhood. So, here’s the deal, you do not have to read the previous books to become addicted to these families. I actually didn’t even start the series until the eighth book, Enrage. On Day I will start from the beginning. Word of advice: Read the Author’s Note! Ok. Back to Debase. I don’t want to spoil anything. I really don’t want a hit out on me for that one so I will make it fast.
Number six thirty-two. He never gave them names. Only numbers. And when he saw number six thirty-two he knew she was different and that was why he loathed her. She intrigued him. No other woman has. He wanted to study her. He couldn’t do that if she was locked in a cage. He needed to study her up close. He knew she wouldn’t run. He was Russian. He was a killer. He had no soul. He would kill her without a second thought.
Number six thirty two. That was her new name. She didn’t know why she was in his presence. He didn’t even want to look at her but he wanted her in his prison. Not the one out there but in here. His place. Was he playing a game with her before he would throw her away for dead? She didn’t understand many things especially why she thought this man was beautiful.
Ok. That’s it. I will say that OMFG…it was amazing!!! I didn’t want to put it down but I always didn’t want it to end. I wanted to savor every intense moment. I felt like I was right there in the middle of the families. Maybe a nanny or bartender in the background. I don’t know. What I do know is that Rachel has a way of making me love these badass fucking men. Ones who enjoy torturing their enemies then going to Sunday dinner. Ones who tease during group texts! They are so normal but also so fucking not. I love them and their wives and children. I can’t wait to see what is up next in this new series.
Overall…READ IT!!! It’s one of the best books I have read this year. Maybe even ever! I am still reeling. I want more. Now. But I do know it will be sooooo worth the wait. No rush for perfection.
P.S. I had so many notes for this one and didn’t use any of them. Eeeek! So good. I never re-read books. Ever but I want to read this one again!
Quotes:
“Family dinner, this Saturday. Bring someone so Chase stops asking if you’re a virgin.”
At that I did laugh. “Chase can suck my dick.”
“Saying things like that doesn’t really help, Drei.”
“Don’t make eye contact with anyone. They’ll think it’s an invitation, and I’ve already hit my quota on murders today.”
“Please tell me you don’t name all your torturous animals.”
He just shrugged and said, “The jellyfish’s name is Bob.”

Debase is the first book in the new series Elite Bratva Brotherhood and also the last book in the Eagle Elite series by the fantastic and talented Rachel Van Dyken. I’ve said it before and I’ll continue saying it: Rachel can write anything! But, her mafia has a special place in my heart and these characters will forever be a part of me. I don’t see this as the end of the Eagle Elite because I know we will continue to see the men we love, because, well…Rachel. And I’m SO excited about the start of this new series. We know Andrei. We hated Andrei. Oh man, do we love us some Andrei. He’s a special kind of tortured soul. A killer. A man. A leader. A tragic soul. A mob boss. Not a lover. But the Italians gave him friends. Gave him a purpose. He doesn’t know love. Can’t love himself and hasn’t ever loved anyone else. The Italians are showing him the way. To embrace who you are and let it all out and in. They are a scary bunch of men, but they are smart, loving, fierce and loyal. And their loyalty now encompasses Andrei and his new woman. His only woman. Ever. She knows how this works. She’s lived it. Hated it. But something about this is different. Andrei isn’t who she thought he was. There’s something in his eyes that screams more than just ‘be very afraid.’ There’s longing, desire. A man behind the monster. They can’t possibly make it work, can they? How much blood will be shed before it’s all over? Will Andrei survive the aftermath? This book. This man. This story. It was so much more than I ever thought it would be. I didn’t expect to love him so much. Rachel has a way of doing that to me. Makes me love these vicious killers. I want to have Sunday dinner and watch them bring out the knives and threaten to shoot each other. I want to feel the heat, the love, the loyalty. I loved watching Andrei fall. It was a spectacular ride that I didn’t want to end!

 

“Sometimes I wish I didn’t like you more than the others.”

“I like killing, you like killing, I have rage, you have rage. We’re pretty much married by now.” ~ Chase.

 

“I can’t decide… What I enjoyed more. The kiss or the slap.”

“I can demonstrate the slap again if you want.”

“No, that’s okay.”

 

“You taste like salvation.”

“You taste like damnation. Heaven and Hell.”

Cover Reveal – Undeniable, Melanie Harlow

May 2, 2019 By

Undeniable - CR banner.jpg

Undeniable, an all-new stand-alone sexy second chance romance from USA Today bestselling author Melanie Harlow, is coming May 20th and we have the gorgeous cover!

Undeniable-PRINT-FOR-WEB.jpg

When we were eleven, Oliver Ford Pemberton dared me to jump off a barn roof. He said you couldn’t break a leg from a 12-foot-jump.

He lied.

(You can also break a collarbone, which served him right as far as I was concerned.)

I wish I could say it was the last dare I ever took from him, the last bet I ever made with him, the last time I ever trusted Oliver Ford Pemberton.

But it wasn’t.

Because he had the nerve to grow up gorgeous, charming, and sexy. And as we got older, the dares only got dirtier—and the betting stakes higher—until finally, he left me in pieces. I swore I’d never talk to him again.

But twenty years after I took that flying leap, he’s back in my life, daring me to risk everything for him: my job, my self-worth, and my heart.

How many chances does true love deserve?

Release Blitz – Well Suited, Staci Hart

May 2, 2019 By

RB banner.jpg

Well Suited, the final standalone in the Red Lipstick Coalition Series from Staci Hart, is available now!

well-suited-illustrated-sm (1).jpg

Chemistry is my love language.

I’ve always been able to separate feelings from chemosignals. A shot of dopamine, a dash of serotonin, and a sprinkle of oxytocin—and bam. You’re in love.

And when egg meets sperm, you’re pregnant.

I couldn’t even be surprised as I stared down at the little blue plus sign, because I knew exactly when and how, and with whom it happened.

When: approximately five weeks ago.
Who: one night stand.
How: prophylactic malfunction.

The upside? I don’t have to go looking for a suitable mate.

Genetically, he’s the cream of the crop. His musculature is a study in symmetry and strength, his height imposing and dominant. He is a man who thrives on control and command, a man who survives on intelligence and resourcefulness. A perfect male specimen.

And the whole package is wrapped up in a flawlessly tailored suit.

I’m having this baby, and he insists we’re well-suited to have it together. And what’s worse? He wants more, in the way of love and marriage.

But love isn’t real. It’s just a product of chemistry.

And if he changes my mind about that, we’re both in trouble.

About the Author

AuthorPics.jpg

Staci has been a lot of things up to this point in her life — a graphic designer, an entrepreneur, a seamstress, a clothing and handbag designer, a waitress. Can’t forget that. She’s also been a mom, with three little girls who are sure to grow up to break a number of hearts. She’s been a wife, though she’s certainly not the cleanest, or the best cook. She’s also super, duper fun at a party, especially if she’s been drinking whiskey.

From roots in Houston to a seven year stint in Southern California, Staci and her family ended up settling somewhere in between and equally north, in Denver. They are new enough that snow is still magical. When she’s not writing, she’s reading, sleeping, gaming, or designing graphics.
