Synopsis

This whole contest was supposed to be easy. I know, I know. Famous last words.

It’s a long story, but I messed up at work. Big time. To earn back the trust of my boss, I promised to save one of our magazines. Yep. That Hot Dad contest you’ve seen advertised all over the place was my idea. And if I’m successful, if I’m able to increase our online readership, then I get a shot at my dream job.

But the one thing I never expected to happen, happened: Contestant number ten, Grayson Malone. Hello, Mr. Difficult. And did I mention sexy as hell?

Unfortunately he knows me. The old me, anyway. And while we might be older now, I remind him of before. Of the woman who broke his heart, who hardened him, and who left him alone to raise the cutest little boy I’ve ever seen.

But I don’t want a relationship. And I definitely don’t fall for single dads with baggage. Even ones with chiseled abs and killer smiles.

But he got to me. They got to me. Him and his son and their messy, crazy life. But I got to him too. I see the stolen glances. I feel the walls he built start to crumble. I recognize that there’s an unexpected beauty to the chaos in his life.

And now that the contest is about to end, we’re left to decide whether the last six months were just fun or if what we have is worth risking it all?

Kara's Review

Worth the Risk is the newest sexy standalone by the fantastic K. Bromberg. Yes, it can be read as a standalone, but if you haven’t met Grayson’s brothers you are missing out. Grant and Grady had incredible stories and we’ve known and loved Grayson for a while now. He’s the peacekeeper in the family. He’s the middle brother, a single dad and a rescue helicopter pilot. He’s also a little broken and has a lot of baggage. He’s also crazy sexy, funny and an amazing dad. But when Sidney, a girl from his past, ends up on his doorstep he’s reminded of why he doesn’t trust her or anyone like her. Sidney is trying to save her family’s magazine so she created a Hot Dad contest. She didn’t know someone from high school was going to end up in the top twenty. She remembers Grayson. She wasn’t exactly nice to him back then, but people change right? Not according to Grayson. He isn’t going to make this easy on her. It isn’t helping that he’s wildly attracted to her but he doesn’t even like her. All they seem to do is get under each other’s skin. Bicker. Yell. Fight. It’s all just foreplay though. Grayson can’t stop thinking about her, but he has to make his son, Luke, his top priority. He thinks he knows Sidney but she’s surprising him every time they see each other. Sidney knows nothing about kids. She’s not even sure she wants a family and roots. But there’s something about Luke that gets to her. He’s sweet and funny and so much like his dad. When getting along for the sake of the contest turns into much more, what will happen when it’s over? Will Sidney be the woman who’s worth the risk? Will Grayson let his past ruin his future? I loved this story! Grayson. Sigh. He’s jerky, funny, sexy, smart and still so angry at the world. I love the dominant side of him and the fierce dad side. He’s the whole package. Sidney isn’t what she appears. She’s deeper than Grayson gives her credit for and she’s smart, beautiful and isn’t afraid to go after what she wants. I loved her determination and knowing that if you don’t take a risk you can’t win. Overall, I laughed, cried, got hot and bothered, and wanted to smack someone. It’s one of my favorite K. Bromberg books!

 

“Dad, what does ‘getting serviced’ mean?”

Christ. And the beat goes on.

“It means when you go to the car place and you get your oil changed.”

“You mean that dipstick thing?”

“Yes, and right now, that dipstick is Uncle Grady.”

 

“I’m out of breath, and we haven’t even gotten to the good part yet.”

“It’s good, all right, That I can promise you.”

“You’re a cocky bastard.” One that looks like a damn Adonis.

“You have no idea.”

 

Sandra's Review

Worth the Risk is the third book in the Everyday Heroes series by the very talented, K. Bromberg. If you haven’t had the chance to read the two previous books then I recommend that you should. It’s not required to enjoy this Grayson’s story but it will give you more insight on his brothers and their lives.
Grayson never wanted the attention. Not when he was a teenager. Not when he was saving lives. And he didn’t want it now but his brothers had other plans. That was why they entered him in this ridiculous Hot Dad contest. His small town already gossiped about him enough and now that he was in the Top 20, it was going to get even worse. He didn’t even know he was entered until she knocked on his door. Uptown Sidney. He didn’t have the time or energy for her. Especially for a princess on top of the hill who reminded him of his past. The only person he had time for was his son, Luke.
She needed him to be on board with this contest. It was what was going to give her the promotion that she wants. He could win if he just let her do her job but that wasn’t Grayson. He was difficult, infuriating, and too damn sexy for his own good. He was the total package. A sexy hero who didn’t want the recognition. A protective dad. A cocksure man who made women swoon. He was also a man who didn’t want to have anything to do with her or the magazine. He thinks she is some princess who doesn’t belong with the common folk. Can she prove to him that she has changed since she left ten years ago? Is that important only for the magazine or for herself? He might drive her crazy but that doesn’t mean it’s not a good thing.
Grayson and Sidney’s relationship is complicated. They have somewhat of a past but they were never together. She grew up on the hill while his family was blue-collared. Still is. She left the small town for the big city. He saves lives and takes care of his eight year old. She wears red-soled shoes while he wears boots. She never dreamed of having a family. He can’t imagine not having one. Different lives but they find themselves attracted to each other. She wants him. He wants her. She likes Luke. Her likes her. But Grayson has to protect his heart and more importantly, Luke’s. Will he let his past ruin a future before it even gets started? Will Sidney land her dream job? And will Grayson become a finalist?
I loved this story! If life didn’t get in the way, I would had read it in one day and not three. I loved Grayson even if he was an ass who made me want to slap him. And Sidney, she is kick ass. She goes for what she wants. Together, they are a couple who you will want to hug, smack, laugh with, and tease. It’s definitely not easy for these two but it’s worth it.
Overall…it’s the perfect addition to the series! I just love these brothers and their loves. They make me laugh, cry, and get all kinds of hot and bothered.

Quotes:
“He’s a hard one to compete for, and you’re a hard one to compete against.”
“Bullshit. I bet your ass there is no crown in this contest, or high heels to prance around in. If there is, I’m front row to take blackmail pictures of you.”
“So much for being a ninja,” I say.
“Shush,” he warns but snickers.

But by the time I reach her, my blood boils with irrationality spurred on by too much alcohol.

“Can I have a moment?” I ask as I walk up to her and grab her elbow, pushing her down the darkened hallway.

“What is your problem?” She hisses as she fights me every step of the way.

We get looks. I get looks. I don’t care because all I keep seeing is Vince’s hands on her arm. His eyes on her tits. His bullshit game I can spot a mile away.

I find the closest door down the hallway leading to the bathrooms, and it opens. I push her through it, barely noticing that it’s an office of sorts before the door is shut, her back is up against it, and my mouth is covering hers.

Take.

Goddammit. That’s my only thought as I fit my lips to hers and take out my anger on her mouth with tongue and teeth and every fucking lick and nip in between.

“What—”

“I’m so pissed at you.”

It’s all I say. It’s the only chance I give her to come up for air before my lips are back on hers. Before my tongue wars with hers. Before my body admits it would beg, borrow, and steal in order to taste every other part of her.

Groan.

I swallow the tiny sound she makes in our kiss as my hands hold her neck still and my lips wage an all-out assault. She hesitates—just a split second—before she reacts. Before her body bows into me, and her mouth argues back.

Fist.

Her hand in my shirt. Her other hand at the back of my neck as our bodies meet—pressed knee to chest. Her perfume in my nose. Her hair tickling my cheeks. The feel of her tits against my chest.

Give.

I can’t get enough.

I’m mad at her.

I want her.

I don’t want to want her.

Christ, do I want her.

“Gray.” A murmured protest.

I tear my lips from hers, shove off the door I have her pressed against, and stride to the other side of the room.

“You are . . . you just . . .” It’s as if I can barely breathe. Christ, I’m mad at you.”

She stands there, lips parted, chest heaving, and golden brown curls messed from my hands, but her eyes look hurt. A hurt I don’t want to see but can’t deny.

“Why?”

“You did this,” I accuse as I try to manage the anger that’s waging a war against my desire.

“Did what?” Her eyes narrow. Her hand goes to press against her chest.

“Made me want you.”

Blog Tour, Review & *Giveaway* – An Imperfect Heart, Amie Knight

May 11, 2018 By

An Imperfect Heart, an all-new second chance romance from Amie Knight, is LIVE!

An Imperfect Heart PRINT-FOR-WEB

The heart is exquisite.

You’ll never hear anyone wax poetic over an organ quite like they do the heart.

When you’re lost in the world? Follow your heart.

When your love for someone is unwavering, unparalleled and unprecedented? You give them your heart.

As a lead pediatric cardiac surgeon, I knew better than anyone that the heart is equally as powerful as it is delicate.

The heart giveth just as easily as it taketh away.

And until the day Kelly Potter darkened my doorway that was all just part of the job.

She rolled in like a slow evening storm, fierce and beautiful, fighting for the life of her unborn child.

It should have been business as usual.

I was a doctor.

Her child the patient.

But Kelly was more.

She was the one who got away.

I wouldn’t make the same mistake twice.

It didn’t matter what the rules were.

For once, I was listening to my heart.

Sandra's Review

An Imperfect Heart is Amie’s next beautiful standalone. I have been following her words since her first book See Through Heart was released, and that was where I was first introduced to Kelly. Ainsley’s glitter- loving roommate and best friend. Saw her again in A Steel Heart so I was excited that she was getting her own book. I didn’t expect it to be this story but so happy that it was.
Ten years. It has been ten years since she saw him. Ten years since the one night stand she would never forget, and the morning after that made her want to scream. She didn’t get it. But, it wasn’t the time to think about it. She wasn’t here for herself. She was at his office for her. Her baby. Her unborn child with a heart defect. She didn’t want to need the asshole, but she did. To save the baby she never thought she wanted but now, can’t think of a life without it.
Anthony loved the fight in her eyes. He did that night ten years ago and he did now. He never forgot their night together. How could he? She was the one who got away. The one he pushed away. He was not going to make that mistake again. She doesn’t like that she needs him. He knows that but he loves the fight. He wants to be there for her and her baby. And when she finally lets him in, it’s beautiful, terrifying, and fantastic. But, can he love them and be their doctor? He wants the best for Team hope. Is he it?
Awe! I just loved everything about it. It was more than a second chance love story. It was about hope, family, friendship, and of course love. The characters are strong, stubborn, and fun. Their banter is flirty, hilarious, and had that lovingly frustration. You know that kind. The one where you don’t know whether you want to slap or kiss them. Anthony and Kelly knew how to push one another’s buttons. It was beautiful really. He would seem like an ass at times but it was for the best at times.
Overall…This is my favorite book of Amie’s! It had the perfect blend of heart, flirt, and emotions. It wasn’t too heavy but it wasn’t light either. It was just what I needed today.
P.S I loved all the nicknames he called her.
Quotes:
“Well, what happened? Don’t keep a sister waiting. It was handcuffs and whips, wasn’t it? Did he have a red room of pain? I knew that fucker was into some kinky shit.”
“Jesus, you have got to stop reading so many romances.”
“It might not be him.”
“Oh, it’s him. I can feel him trying to telepathically tell me what to do through the door.”
She giggled, putting her face to the small hole in the door.
“Doctor’s orders.”

Sandra's Review

I Dare You is Ilsa’s next swoony, funny, and sexy romance. I don’t know how she does it but her books just keep getting better and better. My blog partner, Kara warned me that once I started reading it, I would not want to put it down. She was so fucking right. It only took me a few hours to devour it.
 
It all started with a bonfire, a legend, and a kiss that neither of them would ever forget…
 
Two years and one cheating ex-boyfriend later, Delaney has sworn off football players and spending V-Day on the couch with her teddy bear and vodka. She was lonely on the day for couples in love. Until, some interesting texts from a stranger start making her night awhile lot more interesting. She has no idea who he is but he makes her smile. What she didn’t know yet was that he was Maverick Monroe. The one who was on the other end of that unforgettable kiss. But, just because it was memorable, it doesn’t mean it was meant to be. He is after-all, a football player. The best one. The arrogant one. The one who could not only break her heart but shattered it if she lets him.
 
Maverick has waited long enough. He wants Delaney. She might not seem like his type but she is his wet dream. She was not only nerdy beautiful with fantastic fashion sense but witty, smart, and full of sass. He loved that she didn’t kiss his ass or bow down to him. She pretty much ignored him and it was adorable. He felt the spark between them. She did too but denial was her friend. Until, she saw him. The real him. The one that he hid away. But, will that be enough to win her heart? She might see the real him but he still had his secrets. Will they ruin what they could be?
 
Like I said, I devoured this book! I love Delaney! She is my kinda girl. I want to be her friend when I grow up. Lol. But, really, she is strong, sassy, smart, and has the best clothes. I also ❤ Maverick! He is the perfect blend of cocky, funny, and sweet. I loved him at the bonfire but fell for him hard two years later. He knows the way to Delaney’s heart but will he stay there? Love isn’t easy for these two. But, what a fucking ride. A fun, sexy, and swoony ride that I didn’t want to end.
 
Overall…I just loved the way they were together. The banter. The connection. The heat. The love. The fight. The laughter. Not gonna lie, I laughed so hard I snorted more than once.
 
P.S I Dare You to read this book!
 
Quotes:
 
I need more details if I want to picture you in my head, especially since I don’t know who you are.
You know I’m an athlete, I’m blond, and I like to swing my sword around.
 
“Challenge accepted.”
“What challenge?”
“Proving to you that I’m not like anyone you’ve ever met.”
 
“You’re too beautiful for me,” he says.
 

I Dare You is Ilsa Madden Mills’ newest hilariously funny, sexy, sweet and heartwarming story. I feel like a Mills hero whore. Every time I meet a new character he instantly becomes my favorite. I should feel bad, but I don’t! Ilsa always knows how to bring the feels. I laugh, cry, get mad, swoon, laugh some more and have to fan myself. Maverick is a star football player, not the quarterback, but the leader of the team. He’s handsome, funny, very sure of himself and sexy as sin. I mean, what’s not to love. He’s a fan of Star Wars and The Princess Bride. He has his sights set on Delaney and he isn’t going to be deterred by her brush offs. Delaney is a sexy, geeky girl who is so comfortable in her own skin I was completely envious. Her clothes are killer. Her sense of humor perfection. Her reluctance to get involved with another football player, understandable. But when Maverick seems to be everywhere she is. Making her laugh, comforting her, getting a rise out of her, she can only say no so many times before her body defies her and screams, “Yes, Yes, Yes!” Can Delaney put aside her past experience and trust that Maverick if for real? Will Maverick be able to convince Delaney that he’s not like anyone she’s ever known? I can’t even express how much love I have for this story! It was exactly what I needed in my life right now and I couldn’t put it down. Maverick is so damn sexy and funny and I loved that he was the one chasing her! It was so refreshing! Delaney is so great! I want to be her friend and ask her to make me something cool to wear! Maverick and Delaney are an unlikely couple who just go perfectly together. Their witty banter was everything that texts are the highlight of the book! Overall, I can’t say enough amazing things about I Dare You, except I loved it and you will too!!

 

“I’m not buying it.”

“Challenge accepted.”

“What challenge?”

“Proving to you that I’m not like anyone you’ve ever met.”

 

“I don’t do football players anymore.”

“You’d do me. It’s going to happen.”

 

“I’m not perfect, but I know what I want. You’re the one that got away, Delaney, the opportunity I missed.”

 

“What’s your favorite position?”

“What do you mean?

“Don’t be coy. You know.”

“My favorite position is linebacker, of course.”

Excerpt

Prologue

Freshman year

 

Delaney

 

 

Welcome to Magnolia, Mississippi, where locusts are as big as your hand and iced tea comes with a double helping of sugar.

It’s also home to the best damn annual bonfire party at prestigious Waylon University, which is currently happening right now in the middle of a cotton field.

But…

I shouldn’t even be at this party.

It’s mostly for Greeks and jocks and popular people, yet here I am, a mere freshman, hanging out with my bubbly redheaded roommate, Skye.

“See?” she says as we take in the bonfire. “Isn’t this better than watching cat videos on a Saturday night? What do you want to do first?”

I sigh, feeling nervous. Ever since I moved here from North Carolina, I’ve been pushing myself to try new things. Might as well put a crazy college party on that list. “Let’s get a drink.”

She claps and excitedly replies, “Done. Alcohol at two o’clock.” We weave through the crowd, headed in that direction, and eventually we reach the bar, which is really just a long collapsible table someone set up. On top are various bottles of alcohol, and I grab the Fireball to pour shots. I’ve just tossed mine back and set down my cup when a prickling sensation washes over me, giving me goose bumps.

My gaze moves across the crowd, stopping on a tall guy with dark blond hair, broad shoulders, and a cocky smile. Aha. He’s been staring at me, and now that he’s caught, he raises his glass as a half-grin crosses his face.

I blush wildly as I adjust my black cat-eye glasses. I’m not used to such blatant male attention.

Skye—who’s followed the trajectory of my gaze—spits out part of her drink. “Oh my God, do you know who that is?”

“Obviously I should,” I say dryly.

Her mouth flops open. “You really need to get out more.”

My eyes drift back to him but keep moving as if I’m not staring. “So who is Mr. Hottie McParty Pants?”

“If you don’t know him, you don’t deserve to know. But, he’s H-O-T—like Chris Hemsworth hot. I dare you to flirt with him.” She wiggles her eyebrows at me, knowing full well that for some reason, I can’t resist a dare. Normally rather reserved, a dare gives me permission to be someone I’m not.

So does Fireball. I sling back another shot.

“I’ll bring you a donut every day for a week if you flirt with him,” she adds, watching me.

My ears perk up. “The ones with edible glitter?”

She nods, and I toss a quick glance back to him. Our eyes collide again, and a zing of connection fires between us. He has a strong, handsome face and a stance that has masculine written all over it. A smile tips up his full sensuous lips, and—

Two brunettes—twins, no less—approach him, one on either side, and wrap their arms around his waist. He smiles down at them. Oh. Well then.

I turn back to Skye and frown. “Player. Not interested.”

She waves her hands in my face. “He likes you—I saw it on his face.”

I snort. “Probably gas pains. Your dare is not accepted.”

We hear our names being called from the other side of the party and turn to take in the helmet-haired Martha approaching us, which is taking some time due to the fact that she’s wearing stilettos and a slinky halter dress. She carefully picks her way through the crowd, nudging people out of her way—sometimes rudely—as she focuses on us. Great.

“Incoming mean girl,” I mutter under my breath.

Like us, Martha Burrows is a freshman and lives on our floor. Rather full of herself, she announced within a week of meeting us that she’d no longer answer to anything but Muffin, a nickname she’d given herself.

She eyes us both, a look of superiority on her pretty face. “I didn’t know you two were invited to this little shindig. Obviously, I know all the right people, so I’m always invited.” Her gaze zeroes in on my outfit and she rears back. “What on earth are you wearing, Nerd Girl?”

“Clothes.” I stiffen at her name for me as I tug on my fitted Star Wars shirt and the pleated red miniskirt I made from a man’s shirt. My long pale blonde hair is up in curled pigtails, and I went a bit heavy-handed with the shimmery eye shadow and red lipstick. It’s not your typical look for WU—which is anything monogrammed—but I’m learning to ignore the raised eyebrows.

Skye, the peacemaker among us three, clears her throat and nods her head at the guy who’s been staring. “Delaney has an admirer, but she doesn’t know who he is.”

Martha-Muffin follows Skye’s gaze, eyeballing the mystery man over my shoulder. She gives me an exasperated look. “That’s Maverick Monroe, you idiot. He’s the biggest football star in Mississippi and the freshman recruit of the year. Word is, though, girls like you aren’t his type—not at all.” Her hand flicks a stiff honey-colored curl over her shoulder.

My teeth grind together. “Martha, if you think I care what you think about me and whether or not a quasi-famous football player is interested in me, then you are confused.”

Her lips tighten. “It’s Muffin now, and why do you have to use such big words? What does quasi even mean?” is her cutting reply.

Skye’s eyes get as big as saucers, and I assume it’s because Martha-Muffin and I are about to finally have it out. I can’t stand her, and she can’t stand me. We just…clash.

But that isn’t what has Skye in such a titter.

She points over my shoulder, and I get it.

It’s the person standing behind me, the one I can’t see. I feel a nervous sneeze coming on and—thank God—I somehow push it down.

A husky voice reaches my ears. “Quasi means seemingly or supposedly. What she means is I’m probably not a famous football player but rather one that’s been highly touted but is without merit.”

Oh, shit. The voice is rich and smooth with just enough southern drawl to make a girl swoon. He also sounds halfway intelligent.

I turn around slowly. Mr. Tall, Blond, and Football is right in front of me wearing a cocky smile.

How in the hell did he get over here so fast?

You know that moment when everything stops and the next breath you take is the first one of the rest of your life? That’s what it feels like as Maverick Monroe stares at me with his piercing blue eyes.

I glance down and take in the sculpted chest and hard biceps.

I look back up and see a chiseled jawline that’s defined and lined with a slight scruff. I see the thin pink scar that slices through his left eyebrow, and it does nothing to detract from his appeal.

He’s perfection.

He’s air.

Which I desperately need right now, because I can’t breathe.

He smirks, as if reading my mind, and I scramble to pull myself together. Someone calls his name—it’s a girl’s voice, probably one of those twins—but he doesn’t budge.

His eyes rove over my skirt, glasses, and lips. “The question is…do you even know what makes a good football player?”

“Nice hands?”

His lips twitch. “Hardly.”

“A tight end?” I smirk, feeling sassy…which is weird. I don’t know who I am right now, but it’s like my mouth has a life of its own, saying things I normally wouldn’t.

Martha-Muffin chokes on her drink at my remark and Skye watches me with glee, clearly excited that I have the attention of someone who is apparently very important at Waylon.

I put my hand on my hip. “The question is…why do I need to know?”

“You don’t. All you need to know is I’m the best.”

I suck in a little breath at his arrogance.

A guy walks past us and claps him on the shoulder. “Badass game last week, Mav. Rock on.”

“Thanks, man.” Maverick acknowledges the compliment and lifts his chin, his eyes never straying from mine.

“What position do you play?” I ask. “Quarterback?”

He smirks. “Middle linebacker—defense.”

“Sounds fancy.”

He laughs.

Skye, who’s been eavesdropping unabashedly, sighs with a dreamy expression on her face. “His stats are the best in the country.” She clears her throat. “I-I only know that because my brother is a huge fan, I swear.”

“Hi, Maverick,” Martha-Muffin says as she edges closer to him, nudging me out of the way with her sharp shoulders. “Remember me?”

He focuses on her. “No.”

She glowers. “I was in your dorm room with your roommate last week. You said hello to me.”

He shrugs. “A lot of girls come through. I can’t remember them all.”

Oh. My. God. He is arrogant, but I like how he just shut her down.

Martha-Muffin’s face reddens and she mutters something under her breath, flips around, and flounces off. Good riddance.

Out of the corner of my eye, I see Skye is drifting away too, giving me a thumbs-up.

Whatever. I am not going to flirt with this guy…am I?

He’s definitely got something about him, something that makes my body buzz. I tilt my chin up, taking in how tall he is. He has to be at least six-four.

His gaze drifts over my face. “You know there’s a legend here at Waylon about our famous bonfire party?”

“Oh?”

He smiles, a flash of white on his handsome face. “Legend says the first person you kiss at the party is the one you’ll never forget. It might be years later, and still their face is the one you dream about.”

“Sounds like hocus-pocus.”

He lifts that mesmerizing left eyebrow. “I like to believe in legends—after all, I am one.”

I smirk. “Probably a game made up by some frat-boy-slash-jock wanting to kiss all the girls.”

He pauses for a moment as if thinking, and then he steps in closer, so close that I can see the varying shades of blue around his pupils. “May I?”

My heart does somersaults.

“May you what?” I ask, my voice low, but I know what he wants. My body is already leaning toward him, wanting it too.

“This.” He kisses me, an almost imperceptible touch as he brushes his full lips against mine. The contact of our mouths is electric, sparks of fire skating along my skin.

As if from a distance, I hear someone calling his name. It’s a female, and she’s pissed.

It’s one of the twins probably.

And I’m jealous.

But, I don’t look. We pull away, and I stare at him as he stares right back. A stillness settles over the party, although I don’t think anything’s actually changed. The music is still playing. People are still talking. Beers are being passed around.

Yet…

We’re connected.

Two stars in the black velvet sky.

Two ships passing in the night.

Oh, fuck, stop the nonsense, I tell myself.

“What was that?” I ask, my voice breathless.

“That’s your first kiss of the bonfire. Now you’ll never forget me.”

And then, before I can think of a reply, he’s gone.

I watch him go back to the twins, frustration coiling inside of me as I exhale.

It would be two years before I kissed him again.

Sometimes your first love deserves a second chance…

He was my first crush, my first kiss, my first everything.

But I’m not a lovesick teenager anymore, and I’d never let that cocky troublemaker break my heart again.

So when he shows up out of the blue asking me to have dinner with him “for old time’s sake,” I say I will. After all, it’s been twelve years, and I’m stronger and smarter than I was back then.

Except…he still does something to me. He’s got those eyes that make me weak, those hands that drive me wild, and a body I can’t resist—especially once I see the tattoos. It doesn’t take long for our trip down memory lane to go from sweet to sizzling.

We’re just as good together as we were back then—better, even—and I’m willing to give the only man I’ve ever loved another chance.

But he’s got to tell me the truth.

* * *

All I wanted was to see her again. Tell her I’m sorry. Make her smile.

Okay, that’s a lie. I wanted to do more than that—a lot more. But I know she’s better off without me, and I promised myself I’d behave.

Except I’ve never been much good at keeping promises…or my hands to myself when I’m around her.

I can make her laugh, I can make her cry, I can make her body surrender to mine in ways that neither of us could have imagined back then. I can—and I do—love her more than she’ll ever know.

But I can’t tell her the real reason why I’m here.

And I can’t stay.

Blog Tour & 5 Heart Review – Seducing Kaden, Siobhan Davis

May 1, 2018 By

Seducing Kaden, an all-new taboo romance from USA Today bestselling author Siobhan Davis is LIVE!

SeducingKadenFinal-FJM_Kindle_1800x2700.jpg

Kaden

The woman I love will never be mine because she already belongs to another.

I’ve tried everything to forget her, but it’s impossible when she occupies a starring role in my dreams. My eyes are glued to her shapely curves whenever I see her around campus, and it doesn’t help that she looks as miserable as I feel.

I wonder if she misses me as much as I miss her.

Short of putting a bullet through the skull of that gangster she’s married to, I’m stuck in a hellhole of my own making.

Until fate intervenes, setting us on a collision course we can’t avoid.

Evelina

When I was a little girl, I dreamed of falling in love. The all-consuming sweep-you-off-your-feet kind of love I swooned over in movies.

It didn’t take long for that fairytale notion to come crashing down around me. Now I’m trapped in a marriage I despise with no way out.

The only light in the dark is Kaden Kennedy—the one true love of my life. He doesn’t know he is, because I’m forced to love him from afar, condemned to toss and turn at night, crying over everything I want and all I can never have.

Seeing him day in, day out, destroys me, but there’s no other choice; I had to push him away to keep him safe.

Because if my husband ever finds out I’m in love with another man, I won’t be the only one in danger.

While you don’t need to read the earlier books in this series to enjoy Seducing Kaden, it is highly recommended. This book is a contemporary new adult romance, and it is only suitable for readers aged eighteen and older due to mature content, sexual situations, and language.

This story includes details of an extramarital affair, so if you don’t like cheating or controversial storylines, then this book isn’t for you.

Sandra's Review

[usr-5]

Seducing Kaden is the sixth book in the Kennedy Boys series. You can read it as a standalone but I do recommend reading the series to get caught up with The Kennedys! I have been following the series since the very beginning and each time I open one of the books, I am sucked in. They just keep getting better and better. This one is darker than the others and since I crave a darker reads once in awhile, I was excited.
Kaden wanted her from the moment he saw her. Even at the age of eighteen he knew it was love at first sight. He also knew she was off-limits. She was married. He wasn’t happy about that but after sending more time with her, he knew she was miserable in the marriage. Over the years, he heard the rumors around campus about who she was married to. He was a dangerous man who would kill if he ever found out about the thoughts that went through Kaden’s mind on a daily basis. The love between his wife and himself.
Eva tried to keep Kaden at a distance. She didn’t want him to be hurt because of their actions. Years of misery passed. Kaden was the only light she had. She had to keep that light bright while staying in the dark. In the distance from the only one she loved. The only man who made her want more. Want the fairytale that she dreamed of as a child. Her husband was her nightmare. One that she couldn’t escape.
Ok…I can’t really say anymore than that. I will say that I loved this book! It is one of my favorites from the series for a few reasons. One, I have been waiting for Kaden’s story. It has been a mystery throughout the series. Two, it’s darker. More dangerous. And three, it has a second chance feel to it and I do love my second chance romances.
Overall…I loved everything about it. The writing. The characters. The story. The heat. The love. The danger. The family. I am so looking forward to next book. Oh man, it’s going to be good.
Quotes:
“I wish I could talk to you, Kaden, but the words I want to say can never leave these lips, and there’s no way I want to drag you into my shit.”
“Just when I think you can’t get any more perfect, you go and say something like that.”
“Good to see you still have a healthy ego.”
He shrugs. “You call it ego. I call it confidence.”

Sandra's Review

I Dare You is Ilsa’s next swoony, funny, and sexy romance. I don’t know how she does it but her books just keep getting better and better. My blog partner, Kara warned me that once I started reading it, I would not want to put it down. She was so fucking right. It only took me a few hours to devour it.
It all started with a bonfire, a legend, and a kiss that neither of them would ever forget…
Two years and one cheating ex-boyfriend later, Delaney has sworn off football players and spending V-Day on the couch with her teddy bear and vodka. She was lonely on the day for couples in love. Until, some interesting texts from a stranger start making her night awhile lot more interesting. She has no idea who he is but he makes her smile. What she didn’t know yet was that he was Maverick Monroe. The one who was on the other end of that unforgettable kiss. But, just because it was memorable, it doesn’t mean it was meant to be. He is after-all, a football player. The best one. The arrogant one. The one who could not only break her heart but shattered it if she lets him.
Maverick has waited long enough. He wants Delaney. She might not seem like his type but she is his wet dream. She was not only nerdy beautiful with fantastic fashion sense but witty, smart, and full of sass. He loved that she didn’t kiss his ass or bow down to him. She pretty much ignored him and it was adorable. He felt the spark between them. She did too but denial was her friend. Until, she saw him. The real him. The one that he hid away. But, will that be enough to win her heart? She might see the real him but he still had his secrets. Will they ruin what they could be?
Like I said, I devoured this book! I love Delaney! She is my kinda girl. I want to be her friend when I grow up. Lol. But, really, she is strong, sassy, smart, and has the best clothes. I also ❤️ Maverick! He is the perfect blend of cocky, funny, and sweet. I loved him at the bonfire but fell for him hard two years later. He knows the way to Delaney’s heart but will he stay there? Love isn’t easy for these two. But, what a fucking ride. A fun, sexy, and swoony ride that I didn’t want to end.
Overall…I just loved the way they were together. The banter. The connection. The heat. The love. The fight. The laughter. Not gonna lie, I laughed so hard I snorted more than once.
P.S I Dare You to read this book!
Quotes:
I need more details if I want to picture you in my head, especially since I don’t know who you are.
You know I’m an athlete, I’m blond, and I like to swing my sword around.
“Challenge accepted.”
“What challenge?”
“Proving to you that I’m not like anyone you’ve ever met.”
“You’re too beautiful for me,” he says.

I Dare You is Ilsa Madden Mills’ newest hilariously funny, sexy, sweet and heartwarming story. I feel like a Mills hero whore. Every time I meet a new character he instantly becomes my favorite. I should feel bad, but I don’t! Ilsa always knows how to bring the feels. I laugh, cry, get mad, swoon, laugh some more and have to fan myself. Maverick is a star football player, not the quarterback, but the leader of the team. He’s handsome, funny, very sure of himself and sexy as sin. I mean, what’s not to love. He’s a fan of Star Wars and The Princess Bride. He has his sights set on Delaney and he isn’t going to be deterred by her brush offs. Delaney is a sexy, geeky girl who is so comfortable in her own skin I was completely envious. Her clothes are killer. Her sense of humor perfection. Her reluctance to get involved with another football player, understandable. But when Maverick seems to be everywhere she is. Making her laugh, comforting her, getting a rise out of her, she can only say no so many times before her body defies her and screams, “Yes, Yes, Yes!” Can Delaney put aside her past experience and trust that Maverick if for real? Will Maverick be able to convince Delaney that he’s not like anyone she’s ever known? I can’t even express how much love I have for this story! It was exactly what I needed in my life right now and I couldn’t put it down. Maverick is so damn sexy and funny and I loved that he was the one chasing her! It was so refreshing! Delaney is so great! I want to be her friend and ask her to make me something cool to wear! Maverick and Delaney are an unlikely couple who just go perfectly together. Their witty banter was everything that texts are the highlight of the book! Overall, I can’t say enough amazing things about I Dare You, except I loved it and you will too!!

 

“I’m not buying it.”

“Challenge accepted.”

“What challenge?”

“Proving to you that I’m not like anyone you’ve ever met.”

 

“I don’t do football players anymore.”

“You’d do me. It’s going to happen.”

 

“I’m not perfect, but I know what I want. You’re the one that got away, Delaney, the opportunity I missed.”

 

“What’s your favorite position?”

“What do you mean?

“Don’t be coy. You know.”

“My favorite position is linebacker, of course.”

Release Day Blitz & 5 Heart Review – Seducing Kaden, Siobhan Davis

April 30, 2018 By

SBPR-RB-BANNER.jpg

Seducing Kaden, an all-new taboo romance from USA Today bestselling author Siobhan Davis is LIVE!

SeducingKadenFinal-FJM_Kindle_1800x2700.jpg

Kaden

The woman I love will never be mine because she already belongs to another.

I’ve tried everything to forget her, but it’s impossible when she occupies a starring role in my dreams. My eyes are glued to her shapely curves whenever I see her around campus, and it doesn’t help that she looks as miserable as I feel.

I wonder if she misses me as much as I miss her.

Short of putting a bullet through the skull of that gangster she’s married to, I’m stuck in a hellhole of my own making.

Until fate intervenes, setting us on a collision course we can’t avoid.

Evelina

When I was a little girl, I dreamed of falling in love. The all-consuming sweep-you-off-your-feet kind of love I swooned over in movies.

It didn’t take long for that fairytale notion to come crashing down around me. Now I’m trapped in a marriage I despise with no way out.

The only light in the dark is Kaden Kennedy—the one true love of my life. He doesn’t know he is, because I’m forced to love him from afar, condemned to toss and turn at night, crying over everything I want and all I can never have.

Seeing him day in, day out, destroys me, but there’s no other choice; I had to push him away to keep him safe.

Because if my husband ever finds out I’m in love with another man, I won’t be the only one in danger.

While you don’t need to read the earlier books in this series to enjoy Seducing Kaden, it is highly recommended. This book is a contemporary new adult romance, and it is only suitable for readers aged eighteen and older due to mature content, sexual situations, and language.

This story includes details of an extramarital affair, so if you don’t like cheating or controversial storylines, then this book isn’t for you.

Sandra's Review

[usr-5]

Seducing Kaden is the sixth book in the Kennedy Boys series. You can read it as a standalone but I do recommend reading the series to get caught up with The Kennedys! I have been following the series since the very beginning and each time I open one of the books, I am sucked in. They just keep getting better and better. This one is darker than the others and since I crave a darker reads once in awhile, I was excited.
Kaden wanted her from the moment he saw her. Even at the age of eighteen he knew it was love at first sight. He also knew she was off-limits. She was married. He wasn’t happy about that but after sending more time with her, he knew she was miserable in the marriage. Over the years, he heard the rumors around campus about who she was married to. He was a dangerous man who would kill if he ever found out about the thoughts that went through Kaden’s mind on a daily basis. The love between his wife and himself.
Eva tried to keep Kaden at a distance. She didn’t want him to be hurt because of their actions. Years of misery passed. Kaden was the only light she had. She had to keep that light bright while staying in the dark. In the distance from the only one she loved. The only man who made her want more. Want the fairytale that she dreamed of as a child. Her husband was her nightmare. One that she couldn’t escape.
Ok…I can’t really say anymore than that. I will say that I loved this book! It is one of my favorites from the series for a few reasons. One, I have been waiting for Kaden’s story. It has been a mystery throughout the series. Two, it’s darker. More dangerous. And three, it has a second chance feel to it and I do love my second chance romances.
Overall…I loved everything about it. The writing. The characters. The story. The heat. The love. The danger. The family. I am so looking forward to next book. Oh man, it’s going to be good.
Quotes:
“I wish I could talk to you, Kaden, but the words I want to say can never leave these lips, and there’s no way I want to drag you into my shit.”
“Just when I think you can’t get any more perfect, you go and say something like that.”
“Good to see you still have a healthy ego.”
He shrugs. “You call it ego. I call it confidence.”
