BLOG TOUR: Fight for Me by Corinne Michaels

New York Times Bestselling author, Corinne Michaels, brings a new breathtaking and emotional love story to life in the second STANDALONE in the Arrowood Brothers series. 

Fight for Me is LIVE!

I fell in love with Sydney Hastings when I was ten years old.

At sixteen, we whispered promises of forever. 

When I was twenty-two I broke them all. I left her and promised never to return.

After my father’s death, I’m forced to go home to Sugarloaf for six months. She’ll be everywhere, no longer just in my memories and regrets. 

When we’re together, it’s as though time never stopped. She’s still the one I want, but I don’t deserve her. Instead of apologizing, I take that beautiful, broken woman in my arms. But after that, it’s her turn to leave me. 

 Now I have to fight. For her. For us. For the life we both want …

“Do you want to dance?”

She nods.

I hear my brother make a noise and pretend I didn’t. She said yes, and I’m going to cling to that.

Here might be the last time I ever get to hold her in my arms, and I’m going to take it.

“I love this song.”

I love you.

“Why is that?” I ask.

Her arms move to my chest, and I wonder if she can feel the pounding of my heart. My nerves are bowstrings, being pulled taut before the arrow is ready to fly. Everything inside of me is strained, but I keep it together.

Sydney and I move, the world falling away as it always does when I am with her. Gone is the hurt of my past, the uncertainty of my present, and the regret of the future ahead. Right now, I have her.

She’s here, in my arms, where she’s meant to be.

I don’t care if the sky lights on fire because she’s all I see.

“Listen to her.” Sydney’s voice is quiet and pensive. “Listen to her talk about him giving up and her asking him to stay.”

And I do. I hear the words, and I swear that she’s singing to us.

“Don’t tell me it’s too late,” Emily croons.

“I won’t give up that easy.

Don’t call me darlin’ and tell me that you’re leavin’.

Don’t walk away.

Stop pushing me when you know you want to hold on.

It could be so easy for us, baby.

I’ve been here, but you don’t see me.

Don’t let go if you’re not ready for me to walk away.” The acoustic guitar takes over as her voice drifts off.

“Syd,” I say her name as both a plea to let go and hold on.

Her hands grip my shirt tighter. “Don’t. Don’t let go. Don’t push me away.”

I see the tears in her eyes. I don’t want to push her away. I want to hold her close, kiss her senseless, and love her until she knows it in every fiber of her being that she’s everything I want.

I see her. I feel her. I know her in my bones, but I won’t be able to be who she needs.

No matter how much I wish it weren’t the case, I can’t give her the life she wants with a husband and babies. All I can offer her is a friendship that has an expiration date because once my six-months is up and she has moved, I know I won’t allow myself to see her again.

The song ends, and the two of us stop moving, just watching the other.

The spell that was surrounding us seems to break and awareness fills her gaze. Her fingers loosen and drop from where they had been clutching my shirt and she takes a step back.

The loss of her is felt everywhere. My heart doesn’t seem to beat as strongly, the cold hits my chest, making it hard to breathe, and the emptiness from her loss leaves me weak.

For those minutes I held her, the world made sense. And now … I need to leave.

BLOG TOUR: Dirty Charmer by Emma Chase

“If I try to kiss you at midnight, when I’m off shift and you’re officially not a client anymore . . . would you let me?”

Dirty Charmer by New York Times and USA Today bestselling author, Emma Chase, is LIVE! 

Abigail Haddock is stunning, sensible, and some would say . . . stuffy. But it’s not really her fault. She was raised in one of Wessco’s oldest, most affluent, aristocratic families—“stuffy” is their middle name. So is successful. Abby’s working overtime to distinguish herself as a top-notch physician, just as her family legacy demands.

She doesn’t have time for nonsense.

Tommy Sullivan’s all about nonsense.

Sure, he’s an elite bodyguard with lethal skills and co-owner of the renowned, S&S Securities Firm—protector of the wealthy and titled. But he’s also rowdy, fun and thoroughly irresistible.

Tommy knows how to have a good time, and he’s never seen someone more in need of a good time than Abby. The lass needs long, wet, filthy kisses—STAT—and he’s just the man for the job.

It doesn’t take long for a wildly sexy, sinfully satisfying, no-strings attached arrangement to turn into something more. Something sweet and addictive and real. But Tommy and Abby are too royally stubborn to admit it.

Opposites attract, everyone knows that. But can they last—can they love…for forever?

Me: Are you texting while you’re driving??

Apparently, Tommy and his bodyguard brethren are trained to text without actually having to look at their phones, so they can communicate covertly with the device in their pocket. 

But I’ve explained to him—at length—that that doesn’t matter worth a damn. 

I’ve informed him of the overwhelming statistics on the dangers of texting while operating a vehicle and I’ve disclosed my firsthand experiences of seeing the deadly carnage of such behavior during my emergency room rotations.   

And still, after a weighted pause, he replies:

Godly Orgasm Giver : Maybe.

Me: Well, STOP IT!!

For a moment, the screen remains quiet . . . and then those sneaky little dots appear again.

Godly Orgasm Giver: I like it when you get all shouty caps at me—have I ever told you that?

I’m going to revisit the idea of Tommy teaching me how to throw a punch. It would come in handy at moments just like this. 

“Is everything all right, Abby?” my mother asks. “You’re all flushed.”

She examines me above her glasses like I’m a bug under a microscope. 

“I . . .”

Grogg, the butler, bends down and dips his large, square head towards my grandmother.

“A gentleman is out front, Lady Agatha . . .”

Oh no.

“On a motorbike.”


“Well, send him away.” The Dowager Countess shoos her hand in the air, as countesses do. “We don’t accept solicitations.”

I scramble to my feet. “Actually, he’s here for me.”

I throw my tablet and phone and books into my satchel, to hasten my not-so-great escape.  

“Pardon?” my father inquires.

“He?” my grandmother prods. 

I swallow hard, rushing out the words. “Yes. He’s a friend. I messaged him for a lift.”

My brother Sterling’s eggs-Benedict-laden fork pauses midair on its way to his mouth.  

“I didn’t know you had the sort of friends who road motorbikes.”

“I didn’t know you had friends,” my sister Athena comments, not in a cruel way, but with sincere surprise. 

I shrug, looping the strap of my satchel over my shoulder.

“Yes, well . . . you know . . .”

With that brilliant retort, I turn and walk out of the room. 

I head towards the foyer, the heels of my knee-high boots clicking rapidly on the marble floor like a ticking time bomb. I yank open the giant front door and . . . come to an immediate stop on the veranda outside of it. 

Because Tommy’s there, down the long gray steps on the front drive, sitting easily astride a shiny contraption of chrome and steel, wearing work boots, snug blue jeans and a black leather jacket—looking so sinfully good it might actually be illegal.  

I have to remind myself that I’m angry with him, and when I do, I march straight down the steps. His eyes alight on my boots, skirt and light gray sweater—the ensemble gives off an unintended “naughty schoolteacher” feel—and the corner of Tommy’s wicked mouth hooks up accordingly. 

“Hello, sweetheart.”

“Are you mad?!”

He takes a moment to think it over.

“Not the last time I checked.”

“What are you doing here?” I hold out my hands. “And what is this?”

“It’s a motorbike.”

“It’s death on wheels.”

He chuckles. “James loaned it to me for the day. The hills are beautiful this time of year—I thought we’d take a ride together. You wanted stress relief, didn’t you?” Tommy taps the shiny handlebar. “A ride on this is as stress-relieving as it gets—better than normal-bloke sex.”

I peer at him. Do I want to know?

Apparently I do, because I hear myself asking, “Normal-bloke sex?”

“Yeah.” He winks. “I mean it’s not better than how I do it—obviously. But the way an average bloke has sex—this is definitely better.” 

I shake my head, folding my arms. “Do you have any idea how dangerous these things are? The statistics on motorbike fatalities are—”

Tommy covers my mouth with his hand.

His palm is warm, and so is his voice—a thick, sweet, honeyed tone.

“Do you trust me, Abby?”

After a moment, he takes his hand away and I gaze into those deep, dark eyes . . . falling into them so easily it should be frightening. 

My answer is simple. True ones always are. 

“I do.”

Tommy smiles fully, and my stomach flutters with that lovely swirling sensation. 

“Then climb on.”

He places a helmet on my head, buckling the strap under my chin.

“And you might want to do it fast—your granny’s coming.”

I glance over my shoulder to see the whole family gathered outside the front of the door, a spectrum of curious and gob-smacked expressions plastered on their typically reserved faces. And my grandmother is indeed headed this way, her jeweled necklace jingling as she quickly descends the long slope of stone steps. 


Her voice is high-pitched and harried—a tone I’ve never heard her use before, and one I’m not keen on exploring now.

“Have to be going!” I lift my hand and give them a thumbs-up. “Talk soon!”

Like a teenager running off with the town bad boy, I hike up my skirt and climb onto the motorbike behind Tommy. He clasps my hands together securely over his stomach. 

“Hold on tight, lass.”

I do just that—squeezing my arms around his solid frame and resting my cheek against the warm leather on his back as he revs the engine to life and we pull away with a roar that vibrates in my bones.

And as strange as it is—or maybe it’s not strange at all—I’ve never felt safer.

5 STAR Review

Emma Chase is back with her amazing Royally series. This book is everything we have come to love from Emma and her stories. Tommy is the ultimate Dirty Charmer. He’s witty, sexy, and dirty talking. Abby is all about routine. She proper and doesn’t quite know how to handle all that is Tommy. I love the opposites attract storyline. I loved that Tommy was all to willing to show Abby that there is a time and place for proper. I loved that Abby made Tommy, just more. The chemistry between these two was off the charts from the start. I loved getting lost in them.

Emma Chase is a favorite of mine. I feel like I’ve missed her here recently, simply because time is an issue. I love that I had the chance to read and review this amazing story. Please check it out. I promise you won’t be disappointed!

Ever since Him.

There’s been a war in our little clique.

After all, a house divided cannot stand.

But we both drank it, again and again, never believing there would be a day when our love would start a war.

And our friendship would shatter into a million pieces.

The second worst thing?

Fall in love with your best friend.

He licked his lips and repeated what he always did when we had to perform, when we had to do our jobs. “I won’t be gentle with you.”

Our foreheads touched, my chest heaved with exertion like it was hard to breathe when he was so near, but really it was the promise that killed me, a promise that he wouldn’t enjoy touching me ever again, that I was more curse than cure, and yet, I knew it was all we would ever get, these fleeting moments where we did our job too well. “Then make it hurt, baby.” My voice cracked. “Make it hurt.”

His lips parted in a groan as he spun me into his arms and crushed his mouth to mine. It was part pain, part pleasure as he pulled my hair then slid a hand up my shirt like nobody was watching when everyone was.

We broke apart, mouths swollen, my lower lip was bleeding.

A reminder for both of us—this was no cease-fire, this wasn’t real, it was all a carefully constructed show.

“Mmmmm…” I smirked. “Looks like Junior’s not playing around tonight, ladies.”

Screams went up as Junior grabbed my ass and squeezed so hard, I knew I would bruise later. He roughly pulled me against his chest and nipped at my neck.

I told my body it didn’t feel good.

I told my heart we were safe.

And I forced myself to believe the lie every single time we touched.

Because to do otherwise—would destroy me.

5 STAR Review

Here we go! I love RVD. She is one of my favorite authors. This is the second generation of the Eagle Elite. I love our original characters, but it was great to see what the next generation would become. This is Serena and Junior’s story. These two are set to take over one day. They need to prove they can be the leaders they have been born to be, but they may prove harder than expected when these two have feeling for each other that go far beyond hate. The chemistry with these two is off the charts. But these two are not meant to be together. In fact, them being more than enemies could cause a war between the families.

I loved getting lost in this story. At times I feel like this story may have been more violent than previous Eagle Elite books. Keep in mind, this is the next generation. So this book is younger based, which didn’t bother me. I loved getting to see our old friends as well. This book was everything I was hoping for and so much more. In true RVD fashion I fell in love with these characters and the story from the very start. I loved the storyline. I found myself wondering constantly what would happen next.

I can’t wait to see where this series is going to take us. Hold on, because I think we are in for a wild ride.

I’m the fun guy.

The one always quick with a joke.

The guy who is crazy enough to do wild things to make people smile.

That’s how people see me.

That’s who I’ve presented myself to be.

That’s how I introduced myself to Rivet.

The first female Cerberus team member wasn’t impressed with my corny pickup lines and wide smile like the other women I use it on.

And why should she be? 

She’s seen it all and lived to tell the tale.

She took one look at me and decided she wasn’t interested.

I should move on, but her rejection stings.

I can’t seem to let it go.

I can’t get her out of my head.

I also can’t figure out if it’s the chase I crave, or if this woman is someone special I’ve been missing in my life.

So that really only leaves one thing …

Do I show her the real me?


5 STAR Review

MC sucker right here. I love Marie James and have the privilege of reading a few of her books. I loved every second of Cannon and Rivet. Cannon is funny, always out for a laugh, but now things writhing Cerberus MC are changing. His friend have found love and are having families. Cannon has been feeling like maybe it’s time to re-evaluate things in his life. I love Rivet. She’s the newest member of Cerberus. I love her sass and fire. I love that she fits in so well with everyone. Most of all, I love that she isn’t afraid to put Cannon in his place.

I loved getting lost in these two. The pull between them is undeniable. And as much as Rivet didn’t want there to be anything, there honestly was.

I loved everything about this book and can’t wait to see what’s to come. Please check out this amazing series. You will not be disappointed.

“Helena Hunting delivers a smart, funny, emotional story that grabs you from page one.” — Ilsa Madden-Mills, Wall Street Journal bestselling author

A Secret for a Secret, an all-new must read forbidden standalone romance that is sure to have you swooning from the start by New York Times bestselling author Helena Hunting, is available now!

Hunting-A Secret for a Secret-28672-PB-FT.jpg

From New York Times bestselling author Helena Hunting comes a new romance about trading secrets, breaking the rules, and playing for keeps.

My name is Ryan Kingston, and I’m a rule follower. I’ve never been in a fistfight. I always obey the speed limit. I don’t get drunk, and I definitely don’t pick up random women at bars.

Except the night I found out that my whole existence has been a lie.

I got drunk. And picked up a stranger.

Her name was Queenie, and she was everything I’m not: reckless, impulsive, and chaotic. We did shots and traded secrets. And ended up naked at my place.

She left me a thank-you note in the morning and her panties as a parting gift. But no way to contact her.

Six weeks later I’m sitting in the first official team meeting of the season, and there she is. I neglected to mention that I’m the goalie for Seattle’s NHL team.

And Queenie? Turns out she’s the general manager’s daughter.

“You think our GM got himself an assistant?” I follow his gaze to the front of the room. Standing at the desk with her back to us, arranging papers, is a woman with wavy chestnut hair that nearly reaches her waist. “Maybe an intern?” She’s wearing a navy dress that conforms to her very feminine form. I trace the dip of her waist and the curve of her hip, skimming down to where the hem of her dress hits the bend in her knee. Her calves are bare, athletic, and toned, and her heels boast a little bow on the back. Classy, yet sexy. “Possibly.” “I hope the eye candy is gonna be permanent,” someone at the table behind us says, loud enough for everyone close by to hear. “I wouldn’t mind if she helped me with my jockstrap,” one of the other guys chimes in, eliciting a loud chuckle from the rest of the table. I glance over my shoulder and pin them with an unimpressed glare. I recognize Foley from Tampa, and Dickerson is an LA trade. They’re notorious womanizers. “Watch your mouth and have some respect. That’s someone’s daughter.” “Take it easy, King. It’s not like we’d actually say that to her face,” Foley says. I don’t have an opportunity to reprimand him further because the GM, Jake Masterson, and our head coach, Alex Waters, enter the room through the side door. The GM crosses over to the woman, whose back is still turned to us, and he gives her a smile that seems . . . overly warm. He leans in and squeezes her shoulder as he says something with his mouth close to her ear. “Maybe she’s not his assistant. Maybe she’s his new girlfriend, ’cause that looks pretty damn friendly to me.” Bishop jams a sausage link into his mouth. “Maybe,” I agree. She turns slightly, giving me a glimpse of her profile. Her cheeks are flushed pink. I blink a couple of times, because she seems incredibly familiar. “I think I know her,” I mumble, more to myself than to Bishop. “Not as well as our GM does, by the look of things.” It hits me like a puck in the chest without pads on. I do know her. Queenie. My one-night stand who bailed the next morning and left a Post-it and panties hanging from my doorknob. Destroyed panties. “Oh God.” Did I sleep with the GM’s girlfriend? Memories come barreling into my brain, and I want to sink into the floor. My behavior that night was highly atypical. Everything about that night was. I chalked it up to the alcohol, the family drama, and the fact that she seemed to be a very eager and willing participant in our adventures. Do not think about the things you did to her. I’d be lying if I said I haven’t thought about Queenie and our night together. I’ve even considered driving by the bar where we met, but I don’t know if she’s likely to show up there. And it’s not as if I can ask the bartender about her without looking like a creep. Besides, if she wanted me to have her number, she would’ve left it. “Are you okay? You look like you’re about to hurl,” Bishop asks. I cover my mouth with my palm, not because I’m going to be ill but to hide the fact that it’s hanging open and I can’t seem to close it. Although my stomach is starting to do those awful somersaults that will soon turn into full-on nausea. The kind I used to get when I’d first hit the ice for a game. This is bad. Really bad. I’ve never had a one-night stand before. I’ve always been in committed relationships, and I prefer to get to know my bed partners before they actually get into bed with me. Teen pregnancy was pretty common where I grew up in Tennessee, because there wasn’t much else to do apart from playing sports or getting into trouble with drugs and alcohol—my brother, Gerald, went the latter route. I obviously fit into the sports category. By the time I became a teenager, my parents had finally learned their lesson. It was drilled into me to never become that kind of statistic, or to turn my girlfriend into a mom before she was ready to take on more than senior-level algebra. Ironic how my actual mother would’ve been one of those girls had my grandparents not made the choices they had. “King?” Bishop nudges me. “You’re staring, man.” Jake whistles with his fingers, causing the woman beside him to cringe but then quickly school her expression into an uncertain smile. “Who’s ready for a new season?” He’s rewarded with a chorus of cheers from the players. Waters stands off to the side, clapping enthusiastically. He generally runs all team meetings, but Jake is a hands-on GM, so he always manages first meeting intros before he hands it over to our coach. Jake waits for everyone to settle down and take their seats before he continues. “Gentlemen, I’d like to introduce you to my personal assistant, Queenie.” He throws his arm over her shoulder and pulls her into his side. A hot spike of anger rushes down my spine—it’s a foreign feeling. I’m usually very level headed. But not right now. It’s obvious by the way Jake and Queenie interact that there’s a relationship there. Is she a cheater? Did she make me one? There’s a definite age gap. He’s young for a GM, but he’s in his forties, and I’m pretty sure she’s in her mid twenties. “She also happens to be my daughter, so don’t get any ideas, boys.” He somehow manages to wink and glare at the same time. And it just went from bad to worse. My one-night stand isn’t my GM’s girlfriend; she’s his daughter.

“You’re going to say no to Benjamin Drake? The man you’ve lusted after for five years? The guy you just spent the night with and can’t even remember a single second of?”

“Don’t remind me.” I reached for the sheet and pulled it over my head. “Tell him I don’t make appearances.”

“It’s for a good cause. It’ll be good for the Crown. It’ll take the spotlight away from Aramis and in turn, Elias and Adeline, and give them a moment’s reprieve.”

I’d gotten used to living under a microscope. Sometimes, I absolutely hated it, but I was the sister of the newest King of France. Living under scrutiny was to be expected. My father’s passing had garnered all of us even more attention from the press, especially Addie and Elias. The paparazzi loved them, but it had gotten to be too much. They couldn’t even walk the Gardens at Versailles without having photos snapped, so I understood when Joss said that this would help to give them a break while they figured things out.

“When is this gala?” I asked, still trying to wrap my head around Benjamin Drake asking me to go with him, and the fact that I’d spent the night with him and didn’t remember it.

“Two days.”

“Two days?” I sat up in bed. I was wearing my pajamas so I found it difficult to believe Ben and I had done much together. I frowned at that. “Have I heard of the organization?”

“It’s the Drake Foundation.” She picked up her phone and scrolled on the screen, reading a text or an email. “They open schools and fund after-school activities for underprivileged children.”

“So he wants me to go with him to his own foundation’s gala?” I asked. “Wasn’t he dating an actress?”

“Yes. Sophia Deneuve. They broke things off recently.”


Joss walked out of the room, leaving me thinking about Benjamin and Sophia. Was that the kind of woman he liked? I’d run into them together once or twice and always thought they were an odd pair. Not because they weren’t gorgeous, but because Ben looked as if he could snap Sophia in half. She was tiny and delicate, and he was rough and muscular with tattoos on seemingly every inch of his perfectly toned body. My face heated. Had I touched his perfect six-pack? The tips of my fingers tingled at the thought. Had I explored his body? Had he explored mine? Oh God. I shut my eyes again and groaned. Leave it to me to spend the night with the most perfect specimen on the planet and not remember a second of it.

5 STAR Review

Thank you Claire Contreras for writing such a fun story. I fell in love with Princess Pilar from the very beginning. I love that she wants some time away from it all. She wants to be free for a short time. She feels like her brother, the King gets special treatment. Then she meets playboy and futball star, Benjamin Drake. I love watching these two. The chemistry between them is off the charts. I love seeing how they handle scandal. I love how much happens in this short, fun story. I hope at some time we get more of these two.

Title: Ties That Bind
Series: Ruthless Sinners MC Book 1
Author: L. Wilder
Genre: Romantic Suspense
Release Date: May 6, 2020
The tension is high. The chemistry is explosive. The romance is swoony. The action is breathtaking. And the heat? That is SCORCHING! ~Britt Red Hatter Book Blog
I love the way L. Wilder creates these MC worlds and how each club has a different set of alpha males that make you fall them all. ~Goodreads reviewer
Delilah and Hawk are delicious together. ~M **the biggest bookworm**
Hawk and Delilah are an unlikely couple and prove that just because you are from two different worlds you can still find love. ~Read All About It
A thrill ride that will have you holding your breath to the very end. ~Book Club Gone Wrong
L. Wilder knows how to write great MC books and series; that’s just a fact! ~World Of Books 65
If the rest of L. Wilder’s new series is like the first book we are all in for a h*ll of a ride. ~Goodreads reviewer
These are the ties that bind. As a Ruthless Sinner, I live by those words—all the brothers do. We’re family, our bonds stronger than blood, and as their sergeant at arms, my loyalty has never wavered—until the night they brought her to the clubhouse.
The red-headed beauty didn’t belong there.
It was her brother who’d betrayed us, but there she was, atoning for his sins.
I didn’t want to hurt her.
I wanted to protect her, claim her as my own, but as secrets started to unfold, I was left with an impossible choice.
The ties that bind often come at a price—some more costly than others.
This is Hawk’s story- Book 1 of L. Wilder’s new Ruthless Sinners crossover series. Ties That Bind is a standalone MC romance with a group of bikers who will take you on a hell of a ride. They’re foul-mouthed, possessive alphas who will stop at nothing to protect their women. No cheating and a HEA.
Leslie Wilder grew up in a small town in West Tennessee. A country girl at heart, she’s always thought that life is too short, but she had no idea how short it really was until her brother passed away in 2014. She’s always been an avid reader, loving the escape only a great book can give, and wondered if she had what it took to write one of the wild romances she’d come to adore. With the support of her family and friends, she published Inferno: A Devil Chaser’s MC, one year after her brother’s death. With him in mind, she fulfilled her lifetime dream of writing. Since then, she’s completed the Devil Chaser’s Series and continued on with the Satan’s Fury MC Series. She has so many stories in her head, and can’t wait to share each and every one.
Leslie has been blown away by the support of her readers, appreciating every message, review, and encouraging word she’s received over the past year. She looks forward to continuing this journey with them for years to come.

5 STAR Review

I loved every second of this amazing MC book by L. Wilder. I loved getting lost in her words and her story. I loved everything about Hawk. He was alpha and sweet, but such a sexy biker. Delilah is caught up in a mess all because of her brother. I loved who this girl was. I love how hard she fought for her brother. I loved that she honestly did try to not fall for Hawk, but no luck. This girl was bound to fall for this hot biker.

I loved every second of this exhilarating story. I loved the mystery. I loved the excitement. I loved the words. This was exactly the book I needed at the time I needed it. I loved everything about this story.

Please check out this awesome book. I honestly can’t wait for more from L. Wilder.

Sometimes being wrong can be a lot more fun than being right.

Wrong Turn, an all-new laugh-out-loud enemies-to-lovers romance from New York Times bestselling author Samantha Chase, is available now!

WrongTurn-6x9ebook (1).jpg

Chelsea Cooper thinks her best friend’s fiancé is the world’s biggest jerk.

She’s never really been one to make waves, but when it comes to that guy, Chelsea’s willing to make an exception. There’s just no way she can let her best friend make the biggest mistake of her life by marrying him. She’ll do anything to stop the wedding, even if it means teaming up with the one person who’s an even bigger jerk—the groom-to-be’s best friend.

Drew Russo thinks his best friend’s fiancée’s best friend is the prickliest woman alive.

Everything about Chelsea aggravates him. She’s too structured, too uptight, and too opinionated—especially when it comes to her thoughts on his best friend. When he’s tasked with keeping her away from their best friends’ secret wedding, Drew knows he’s in for one hell of a challenge. Never mind the days he’ll have to spend trapped in a car with the world’s most annoying woman.

The plan is simple enough—keep Chelsea from interfering with the wedding. But between distractions, delays and detours, they discover they aren’t the enemies they thought they were. And sometimes a wrong turn can lead you in the right direction.

Warning—This sweet, sexy, and laugh out loud funny romance is filled with all the most ridiculous road trip stories you can imagine and will make you realize sometimes being wrong can be a lot more fun than being right.

Why have I never kissed this man before?! Forget the ice cream or cupcake being orgasmic, kissing Drew was quickly approaching that status. His lips were both soft and firm at the same time–if that was even possible–and his tongue was…well, it certainly knew what it was doing, too. Moving in closer, Chelsea’s hands slowly moved up his muscular arms before gently scraping around his nape and up into his thick, dark hair. He smelled good, he felt good, and he kissed like…like nothing she’d ever experienced before. Oh, God…what if it isn’t that Drew is so good as…I’m just bad at this? As if reading her mind, his lips left hers. She felt his warm breath against her cheek. “I can hear you thinking from here. If you want to stop…” She never let him finish. Just as Drew’s hand dropped from her cheeks, she reached up to cup his. “Don’t stop,” she whispered before pulling him back in for another kiss. It was hotter and wetter, and more sensual than the first. Within minutes, he had pulled her into his lap. Her hands raked through his hair while his were rubbing a hypnotic pattern up and down her back with the occasional butt squeeze. His hands were magnificent and she wanted to feel them on her skin and not just over her robe. Without breaking the kiss, she untied the belt at her waist and pushed the garment from her shoulders. Drew’s hands immediately went to her bare legs and then around to grab her ass. She moaned into his mouth before he pulled back to look at her. And that’s when she remembered what she had on underneath. Oh, no… “Is that…” Chelsea tried to close the distance between them and kiss him again, but he wasn’t to be deterred. Wanting to die of embarrassment, she sighed. Leaning back, she let him get a good look at the hot pink nightshirt she was wearing. With a giant cartoon chicken wearing a bikini and sunglasses that said, “Hot Chick.” Kill me now. He looked up at her and then down at her shirt before he laughed softly. “Wow. I don’t think I’ve ever…” “You know what,” she quickly interrupted, doing her best to climb off his lap with as much dignity as she could muster. “No one was supposed to see this. I was supposed to be alone in my own room and…” She never got to finish. Drew hauled her back into his lap, his large hands on her hips, securing her to him. “I think it’s freaking adorable,” he said, his voice low and seductive–like he wasn’t referring to a chicken wearing a bikini. His gaze was hot and sexy. “I think you’re pretty freaking adorable too.” “Really? Just adorable?” Oh, God…why would I ask that? “Actually, I think you’re pretty damn hot, Chelsea, and I’d be lying if said I didn’t want to see what you’ve got on under this shirt.” Maybe it was the wine, maybe it was the ice cream. All she knew was that her mind had drifted in a very dirty direction and she was powerless to try to change it. Feeling bolder than she ever had in her life, she crossed her arms in front of her and tugged the nightshirt up and over her head. She saw Drew swallow hard as his eyes seemed to devour her. Her skin was both chilled and heated at the same time. Her nipples tightened and she felt more exposed than she ever had with a man. “I love how the panties match the shirt,” he said, one hand toying with the waistband. Right now, she wished she was wearing something sexier than hot pink cotton, but he didn’t seem to mind. “Drew…” Looking up, his eyes met hers even as his fingers continued to tease her. “Is this weird?” she said quietly. “I mean, earlier today we were fighting and making each other crazy.” The hand that wasn’t tormenting her reached up and caressed her cheek. “I think we’re still making each other crazy, just in a much more pleasurable way.”

5 STAR Review

I’m newer to Samantha Chase, but I loved every second of this story. With that said…there were parts of this book that bothered me, but my issues weren’t with the main characters. Chelsea has always felt like an outsider, even with her best friends. Drew has been tasked with keeping Chelsea entertained on Friday nights. A task that is getting old for him. As the story evolves, things come out.

Chelsea and Drew’s best friends decide to run off and get married. Drew is tasked with keeping the secret of the wedding from Chelsea and keeping her away. As with all lies, Chelsea finds out about the wedding. She decided to go to stop the wedding. After a series of mishaps, she and Drew end up on a road trip to stop the wedding. Along the way, Drew and Chelsea find out that the other isn’t what they were lead to believe. As opinions change, feelings grow.

I loved watching these two evolve. I loved the chemistry they had. I loved the understanding they came to have of one another. I loved getting lost in this story. I loved how this story worked out in the end. That being said, if I had friends like they did, no matter how long I had known them, we would no longer be friends.

LUQ - BT banner copy.jpg

Love Under Quarantine, an all-new feel good strangers-to-lovers romance about finding love in the most unexpected ways from New York Times bestselling authors Kylie Scott and Audrey Carlan, is out now!


While the world is ravaged by a global pandemic, hotshot NFL running back Evan Sparks is locked in his own personal hell. With a career-ending scandal on his back, Evan hides out in his best friend’s empty San Francisco home, the full city shutdown locking him in a lonely twenty-story apartment in the sky.

Romance writer Sadie Walsh is having the worst case of writer’s block ever…until the incredible, muscular stranger staying next door gets her muse going strong. The pair of loners, never expecting to find a friend in all the madness, meet each day out on their balconies like a modern-day Romeo and Juliet.

Each new day brings unique challenges for the pair as they navigate the unknown and find solace together. They quickly figure out that as long as they have one another, they can handle anything.

Even falling in love under quarantine.


Writing together for the first time, New York Times bestselling authors Kylie Scott and Audrey Carlan team up to tell a story that not only is a beautiful escape during a trying time, but a true lesson on the power of humanity’s ability to survive. Through a sexy, hopeful, strangers-to-lovers romance, the authors prove with love, trust, and faith, we can conquer anything.

Okay, reposition feet hip-distance apart and centered on the mat. Inhale and let it all go on the exhale. I look over the balcony across the barren city and try to find perspective. What did the teacher say? Set your intention? My intention is to maintain a modicum of good health and to not go insane during self-isolation. Fingers crossed on both fronts. Getting some work done wouldn’t be a bad idea either.

“They locked down the fucking city, man!” The voice blocks me from finding my zen spot. Some big blond dude is pacing back and forth in the neighboring apartment. Guess we’ve all got to get our exercise one way or another. A nice quiet doctor owns the place, but he’s overseas right now. No idea who this guy is. The new cat sitter, maybe? If so, I hope Gloria housetrains him quickly because all of this shouty behavior is not okay. Not if I have to share a wall with him for the next few weeks.

My new neighbor’s voice lowers to a more tolerable level and I take a deep, calming breath before moving into my next pose. Much better. Despite having questionable balance and being new to this whole yoga thing, I’m not doing too badly. It’s weird how quiet the city is with everything on lockdown. Peaceful, almost.

“Two weeks! I’ll be stuck here for two weeks!” he rants once more.


Due to the architect’s penchant for floor to ceiling windows—perfect for letting in the light—I have quite the view of my new neighbor’s performance. Much angst. Such woe. Like we’re not all going to go stir crazy during lock in. Even if it has only just started. I for one can’t wait to see how many divorces and break-ups this causes. Call it morbid curiosity. Though, being a romance writer, my mind would be better served dwelling on the possibilities for true love in this situation.

A random casual hook-up turning into so much more due to weeks of forced interaction? Roommates bonding over newly revealed shared interests? Nuh. Roommates entering into a sex pact to stave off boredom! Now that could work. Broken beds and broken hearts. That’s how to get things done. With the requisite happy ever after at the end, of course.

“Excuse me!” he shouts, shoving a frustrated hand through his head of thick, wavy, dark blond hair. New phone call, I think. After all, you can’t yell at the same person all day long. How tedious would that be?

Call me distractible, but watching him is actually a hell of a lot more interesting than perfecting my Downward Dog or doing yet another inventory of my pantry. Damn Oreos. I could have sworn I had another package. Day one and I’m already out of my favorite snack. Just bring on the apocalypse already. Without Oreos my life is already functionally over.

“Are you kidding me!” The man sure has a set of lungs on him. Unfortunately, at this point, he about-faces and strides back into the apartment. Still yelling, of course, though I can’t quite make out what he’s saying.

On the plus side, in those blue jeans, his ass is a thing of wonder. Honest to God. In less pandemic-y times, I’d charge my friends a bottle of wine to come over and witness the beauty of that thing. So tight. So nice. I lick my lips. Impressively broad shoulders beneath his T-shirt too. When he paces back to the front of the apartment, I’m presented with a strong jawline, high forehead, and a nose that could be slightly crooked. At least, it will be in the book. Readers dig that shit. The hint of a complicated past with a dash of violence thrown in for good measure. Ideally, he’d have broken it defending a small child or rescuing puppies. A combination of the two, perhaps?

Yes, it’s a definite. Apart from the anger management issues, this guy is officially hot stuff. Not that I’m after an actual love interest. Just inspiration for the hero of my next book.

Which is when it hits me…big buff dude reveals surprisingly sensitive side to sexy single introverted neighbor during quarantine. Hmm. It has possibilities. I stop procrastinating and move onto the next pose, arms out in a T, legs wide, and a slow bend at the waist. I exhale, pondering the plot idea along with the thickness of his thighs. The way the denim lovingly embraces every inch of his musculature. It’s like it’s on a loop playing over and over in my head. Okay, maybe I’m a little sex starved. He can feature in my masturbatory fantasies as well. After all, he’s that kind of can-do, helpful guy. Or at least, he is in my mind. And that’s where the man will stay. At a safe and appropriate distance. For both the virus and my heart.

5 STAR Review

I love Kylie Scott and everything she writes. I’m ashamed to say I’m new to Audrey Carlan, but I’m in love. I love when authors team up to write an amazing book. That’s exactly what these two amazing authors have done. I devoured every word of this book.

Evan is facing a scandal. One that may end his NFL career. Needing to get away he hides out at his friend’s apartment. Sadie has been in a writing funk for a minute. But that all goes away when Evan appears. Especially now that they are stuck under quarantine. What could go wrong?

I love the chemistry between these two. I loved the slow burn and build of these two. I felt this story was 100% relatable, especially right now. I feel these authors did an amazing job making something that has been hard for so many of us feel light and fun. I love how they handled the subject. This book was a fun read during an otherwise trying time. I loved every second of it and can’t wait for more for both these authors.

5 STAR Review

I loved this heartbreakingly beautiful story. This is the story of Linc and Sunny. Linc’s father is not a good man. Along with wealth comes hurtful words and actions. While by all appearance Linc has a good life, things are not as they appear. Sunny is just a great girl. She has such a sweet soul. She is the one bright thing in Linc’s otherwise dark world. When Linc does what he thinks is best to keep Sunny safe, he leaves behind his heart and a hurt girl.

Now 10 years later, Linc is back. Sunny has moved on and created a life for herself. The question is, can she get past the hurt from 10 years ago? Can she let him in again?

I loved every second of this story. I loved getting lost in Melanie Moreland’s story and her words. I loved everything about this book.
