Secretly hooking up with the team captain’s sister was a bad idea.

In my defense, the first time I saw her I didn’t know who she was.

Kind, gorgeous, a little naïve. Ginny brightened my world from day one.

I knew I was no good for her. She was just out of a relationship and I had a reputation for having a new girl in my bed every weekend.

I tried to do the right thing. Honest.

I’m the one who insisted we should be just friends.

That lasted about as long as you’d expect.

But Ginny? She’s the best–best friend, best everything.

So yeah, hooking up with the team captain’s sister wasn’t a great idea.

Would I do it again?

In a heartbeat.

Release Blitz and Book Review: OUR-STAR CROSSED KISS by Piper Rayne

Release Date: October 13

She’s got two strikes against her.
Her name is Erickson and her parents own The Bagel Place.
 
It wasn’t always that way. When we were nine, we were best friends. But then a feud between our dads ripped their successful business apart—and my best friend was ripped away too.
 
Our paths were bound to cross again. When both our families vie for the same spot on a Food Channel’s reality show, the producers decide to change the format, aligning us as allies. 
 
In order to get our parents to agree to work together, Evan asks me to pretend to be her boyfriend, but I dare her to up the ante—be my fiancée. Fake fiancée… obviously.
 
As usual, I didn’t think things through. Turns out our parents have a lot of demands neither one of us expected.  And all those demands lead to things feeling more real than fake.

“I’m a sucker for funny books and crazy about small town romances, and the Triple Threat by Nikki Ashton hit both those targets fully in the guts!” Goodreads Review

BLURB

Welcome to Dayton Valley, cowboy country with a sum population of 9022. Sounds idyllic, and it is… until it isn’t.

Ellie First there’s my parents and their penchant for making out in public, totally gross. Then there’s my douche of a brother, who shouldn’t be allowed near any woman with a pulse. Bronte my best friend is lusting over a silver fox … And then of course there’s Hunter Delaney. Hunter. Hunter. Hunter. He’s not officially mine, but that’s not to say I want him to belong to anyone else either. As we work together on a way to stop Bronte’s demented plan to date Hunter’s dad, we get closer, and closer… until the lines of friendship are well and truly blurred. Friends can be lovers, right?

Hunter I’m a cowboy, I love my job, I adore my two crazy aunts and I idolize my pop, even if he’s getting more action than I am. Life is great, except I have a problem and it’s called Ellie Maples. She’s my best friend’s little sister, but you know that line you’re not supposed to cross…? Yeah, that one. Well, I’m getting pretty close to jumping it. You can have feelings for the girl you’re not supposed to touch, right?

Welcome to Dayton Valley… where the men are hard, and the women are horny.

MEET NIKKI ASHTON

Nikki lives in Cheshire with her husband, two dogs and lovely mother-in-law who supplies her with endless cups of tea. She writes romance with a touch of humour and lots of love, and hopes that she puts a smile on her reader’s faces. Her ambitions of becoming a writer started at the age of 10 when she started writing poetry at school, and was given the honour of reading one of her poems to the rest of her year group (a truly embarrassing experience that she will never forget). Nikki is grateful for the wide variety of strange and wonderful people in her life, otherwise she’d never know what to write about! She is currently talking to family and friends, finding out their innermost secrets in readiness for her next book.

Although all Nikki’s books are stand alone stories characters do make ‘guest appearances’. So, the best order to read them is:

Guess Who I Pulled Last Night

Rock Stars Don’t Like Ugly Bras

5 STAR Review

Boy oh boy. I’m not sure I was prepared for this amazing story. Hunter and Ellie were just the cutest things ever. Ellie is supposed to be off-limits but Hunter is pushing that limit. I love the dynamic Hunter has with is family. They have been through a lot, but they’ve come out stronger in the end. Ellie is smart, sexy, and stubborn. She’s got her family who has her back. I love that she gives as good a she gets.

These two were everything I could have hoped for while being amazing individually. I loved getting lost in these two amazing people. I loved when Ellie let her guard down and allowed herself to feel. I loved that Hunter was ready to be what Ellie needed.

I loved every second of this book. Once I started I could not put this book down. I loved falling in love with these two and their story. I can’t wait for more form Nikki Ashton.

Release Blitz and Book Review: ONE BEAUTIFUL PROMISE by Layla Hagen

HTML:
Release Date: September 29

It all began in Rome…

I was supposed to show Cole the city, as a favor to a friend. I was aware of his reputation, a seductive charmer hellbent on bachelorhood, but I hadn’t prepared for him to get past my defenses. Cole was nothing like the serious businessman I imagined. He was sinfully hot, funny and way too flirty for my broken heart. But, it was just vacation after all. I thought I’d never see him again.

Only I do.

Cole calls me the very day I return to New York. My residency has been my sole focus for the past few years—my passion and my refuge. 

I’ve loved and lost and I don’t know how to open up again. But Cole is melting my fears with every kiss and touch, willing to move mountains to make me happy and help me heal. 

And what scares me the most? I might just let him.

5 STAR Review

This book is about learning to love again. Laney has a tragic past. One that makes her question if she can love again. This book was sweet. This book was love. This book was about overcoming. I loved falling in love with Laney and Cole. Cole was so patient. Cole’s love for Laney was heartfelt.

Watching the love grow between these two is so special. I love holding on to hope for more for these two. This was more than a story for me. It was about healing. It was about moving on. This book was everything I needed and waited.

I love Layla Hagen. When I ventured into the world of romance books, Layla was one of the first authors I read. I read every book I could get my hands on. My love for her and her books has continued to grow. I can’t wait to see what’s to come in the future.

5 STAR Review

I must admit, the blurb made me want to read this book. Do not throw stones, but I have not had the pleasure to read Gina Azzi previously. With that said, I fell in love from the very start of this book.

Harlow and Connor couldn’t be more different. They come from different world. They had very different upbringings. That doesn’t mean that these two weren’t meant to be. The chemistry was hot between these two. But their past kept them from being together.

This book was heartbreaking. It was about learning to overcome. Harlow’s been hurt by Connor in the past. It’s hard to let your guard down and learn to love again. The question is can she open her heart to love again.

Remember when I said I’ve never read Gina Azzi before, well I can say I have now. And she has a new fan. I loved every moment of this book and can’t wait to read more from Gina!

RELEASE BLITZ: Scandalous Prince by Rachel Van Dyken

<!– /wp:image →

“Stop what you’re doing and read Scandalous Prince by Rachel Van Dyken RIGHT NOW! It’s action packed with plenty of secrets and full of smoldering romance! If you love mafia romance, you will LOVE this book!” – New York Times bestselling author Monica Murphy

Scandalous Prince by Rachel Van Dyken is now live!

A mafia romance about secrets and soulmates by Rachel Van Dyken, the number one New York Times bestselling author of the Eagle Elite series.

The woods are lovely, dark, and deep, but I have promises to keep and miles to go, before I sleep. –Robert Frost

I was born under fire and swore to protect her until my dying day, I just never knew that one day, I’d be the very monster I was protecting her from.

She didn’t know it was me.

She didn’t know that I had no choice and would do it again and again to save her.

I may as well have given her the mark on her finger.

The one that shows where her loyalty must lie.

Because we don’t sin in silence.

And eventually, you have to pay up what you owe.

My need to protect her turned into a lie to save her.

And when she found out–I turned in to the very monster I was trying to protect her from.

Watching Violet Abandonato walk out of my life was like a knife to the chest, a wound that refused to heal.

The bosses sent me to protect her, to watch over her even though I was the demon she fled.

We both carry scars.

But if all I can have is her hate for as long as I breathe.

I’ll take it.

Because at the end of the day, I should burn in Hell forever thinking Chase Abandonato’s perfect angel would pick me–over her perfect life.

“I broke you,” I confessed.

“The worst part… is that you liked it,” she snapped right back.

Welcome to the second generation of the mafia, may the best man or woman, be left standing.

May God bless our tainted souls.

5 STAR Review

I just want to stand up and give this amazing author a hand. RVD seriously kept me wanting more with this book. It’s full of twists and turns I never saw coming. Just when I thought I had this story figured out…boom…RVD blows my mind all over again.

This is Violet and Breaker’s story. I love the girl Violet was. She’s such a relatable girl. She’s quiet…the book nerd, but don’t let that fool you. She has a fiercely protective side as well. Breaker is loyal and ruthless. He’s been charged with keeping Violet safe. While their love is forbidden, that doesn’t mean that feelings and a relationship can’t develop. These two have the odds stacked against them. They broke my heart, but as this book went on RVD put me back together and made me whole again.

I love RVD and how she can make me fall in love with the scary mafia world. I’m very picky when it comes to my mafia books, but RVD is one of my go-to reads. She makes these characters relatable and witty. I love that about her. I can’t wait for more in this series.

Title:Edge Of Tomorrow (Arrow’s Edge MC, #3) Author: Freya Barker Genre: Romantic Suspense Release Date: September 21, 2020 Photographer: KW Photography Models: Darrin Dedmond & Baby John Hosted by: Buoni Amici Press, LLC.

Solitude and motor oil meets soul food and wariness

I’m a grease-stained enigma. A watcher, a protector, an ex-con, and a mechanic. My name is Brick. I’m old enough to know good things come to those who wait, and hungry enough to go after what I want. I am a proud independent.

A nurturer, a cook, a casualty, and a grandparent. My name is Lisa. I’m cautious enough to keep my distance, and too wise to let a chance at love pass me by. We seem unmatched—in race, in history, in lifestyle—but when tragedy leaves a baby in our care and a target on our backs, we discover the strength of family.

Unified.

5 STAR Review

You all know how much I love Freya Barker and all of her books. I love getting lost in her world. This book was suspenseful, gut-wrenching, and perfect. It’s everything I’ve come to expect from Freya and so much more. As with all of Freya’s books, I couldn’t put this down. I wanted more with each page turn.

This is Brick and Lisa’s story. I feel like I waited a lifetime for these two. These two have put off letting their feelings free for what seems like forever. When tragedy strikes, Brick and Lisa find their way to each other. While I never would ask for tragedy to hurt characters, I fall in love with these two, they kind of needed it to make them realize they were missing out on something great.

I loved everything about this book. I know I say it with each book, but I think this was my favorite. I loved getting lost in Brick and Lisa. I loved watching them overcome. I can’t wait to see what Freya has in store for us next. I can’t wait to fall in love with more of her writing and characters.

BLOG TOUR: My Fallen Saint by J. Kenner

Charismatic. Confident. Powerful. Controlling.
Meet Devlin Saint, J. Kenner’s all new tortured alpha hero.

My Fallen Saint, an all-new addictive romance with a hero that will have you begging for more from New York Times and #1 International bestselling author J. Kenner is available now!

His touch is her sin.
Her love is his salvation.

A brilliant investor with a Midas touch, Devlin Saint turned a modest inherited fortune into billions, and now operates one of the world’s foremost international philanthropic organizations. He’s a man determined to help the underprivileged, to fight injustice, and to make the world a better place. And that, at least is true.

It’s not, however, the full truth.

Because Devlin Saint is a man with a dangerous secret. One he’ll do whatever it takes to protect. And when investigative reporter Ellie Holmes turns her attention to an unsolved murder, she finds herself caught in a web of intrigue and passion as Devlin draws her closer and closer. But as the intensity and sensuality of their relationship grows, so do Ellie’s suspicions. Until she is no longer certain if the heat between her and Devlin is real, or only a facade he constructed to hide his dark and twisted secrets.

Excerpt

I cross the patio, clearing the south side of the building. To my left, I now have a straight-on view of the SeaSide Inn, the small hotel on the other side of PCH that has been a fixture of Laguna Cortez for as long as I can remember.
At one point, my uncle actually owned it, along with a few others around town. I even helped decorate the office, in so much as going to Home Depot and looking at paint chips counts as helping. Or decorating.
I turn the other direction so that I’m facing the ocean. The tidal pools are only a short walk away, and I take a step that direction, then stop. The tidal pools had been our place, mine and Alex’s, and I’d cherished that time among the clusters of porous gray rocks that rose out of the long, empty stretches of sand. It was the place he’d first kissed me. A place I always felt safe.
More, it’s a place I haven’t been back to since he left.
I’m not sure if it’s in defiance of or protection for those memories, but I can’t bring myself to go back now. Instead, I turn once again toward the highway and start walking forward, the south wall of the foundation on my left.
From this perspective, I can see the fourth floor balcony, and I know from the article I read about the building’s architecture that I’m looking at Saint’s private office. Not that I can see much. From where I’m standing, my view is of the underside, a hint of the balcony’s glass barrier, and only the tiniest glimpse of the glass door leading inside. Even so, I pause for a moment, imagining that Saint’s standing at his window, and that he’s watching me, too.
I frown, wondering what came up that forced him to postpone our interview. Did he leave town? Or is he right now in his office? Hell, maybe he really is at his window looking down at me.
There’s no reason he would be, of course, and so I continue walking the length of the building so I can circle around and get back to Shelby.
But with each step, that tingling sensation becomes stronger, the uncanny sensation of being watched. It’s not something I can ignore. Hell, I was raised by a cop and was on the job for two years myself before going back to school.
Mid-stride and without warning, I turn and look behind me. At the ocean. The path to the tidal pool. And the balcony off of Devlin Saint’s office.
That’s where he’s standing.
A man lost in the shadows cast by the building that shelters him.
It has to be Saint.
And he’s watching me.

5 STAR Review

Thank you, J. Kenner. I was in a rut when it came to books, but you brought me right out of that with Devlin Saint. I’ve missed a powerful book alpha that made me want so much more. This book was exactly what I’ve come to love from Ms. Kenner and so much more.

Ellie has experienced loss and pain. Enough to last her a lifetime. Ellie’s past has made her who she is today. She’s tough, fierce, and she has walls up. I loved getting to know more about Devlin. As the story evolves you learn more and more about why he is how he is. And all Ellie wants is to be there for him. Devlin doesn’t want that, but Ellie is determined.

I loved getting lost in this book. I loved being on the edge and not knowing what was coming next. I loved watching these two fall and become exactly what the other needed. I love J. Kenner and all her books. I’ve been missing her stories like this.

BLOG TOUR: Hard Checked by Stacey Lynn

I’ve been checked hard into the boards, right off my skates, and I’m not only spinning out of control…
I might just be falling in love all over again.

Hard Checked, an all-new beautifully written, second-chance-at-love sports romance that will bring all the heat and feels from Stacey Lynn is available now!

Getting served divorce papers was not how I planned spending New Years Day.

I probably shouldn’t have gone to my favorite bar and gotten wasted trying to drown my sorrows.
I definitely shouldn’t have spent the night passed out in the bed of the bartender’s daughter, Gigi.

And the absolute last thing I should have done was let my guard down and start having fun. Now I’m thinking of her all the time… fantasizing about the things I want to do to Gigi.

I’m in the middle of the best hockey season of my life. I need my head in the game and my focus on the playoffs – not playing house with the gorgeous bartender who makes me feel more alive than I have in years.

Finding someone new so soon after a failed marriage isn’t the smartest thing I’ve ever done.

But it just might be too late. I’ve been checked hard into the boards, right off my skates, and I’m not only spinning out of control…

Excerpt:

Another set of drinks arrive at our table, served by a pair of small hands, with a tiny little broken heart tattoo on a ring finger and dark purple nail polish.
“Thanks, Gigi,” I say, lifting my head and grinning at her.
She smirks at me. “No problem, hotshot. Dad wanted me to give you these but says it’s last call.”
“Damn,” Jason groans. “I didn’t realize it was so late.”
“You can take off. I’m good.”
“You sure?”
“Yeah.”
He turns to Gigi who’s taken our empties and is starting to walk away.
I try. I try really hard to not let my gaze drop to her short, cut-off sweat shorts, to the length of her legs beneath them. The shape of her calves or to notice the dark red polish on her toenails.
I fail.
Miserably.
There’s something so damn attractive about her petite size.
I grip my new beer bottle harder and take a healthy swig.
“Hey Gigi,” Jason calls out. “Keep this loser company for me so he doesn’t get shit-faced before practice tomorrow?”
“Me?” She’s turned, gaze bouncing from me to Jason and she frowns. “You need my help?”
“No—”
“Yes—” Jason says at the exact time I disagree.
She smirks at Jason. “Seems to me he doesn’t need it.”
“Sometimes this asshole doesn’t know what he needs.” He slaps the table and slides out, holding out his arm in a gesture for Gigi to take his spot.
“Jason—”
He shrugs and holds out his fist. “I’ll pay the tab. You get home safely, yeah?”
“Yeah,” I grumble and return his fist pump.
“And you’ll thank me for this someday, too.”
I watch him go, frowning.
What the fuck does that mean?
“I can pretend to sit here until he leaves if you want to be alone.”
Her voice does something to me. Like a bug is happily leaping in my gut when she looks down at me, all that teal hair and new nose ring and tattoo peeking out from the wide collar of her sweatshirt.
It’s the collar I’m noticing. And the tattoo.
Not the thin, white strap of her bra.
Shit.
“You can sit. Please. You want Jason’s last beer?”
“Nah.” Her nose crinkles and the soft light above the bar flints on her nose ring. I quickly look away as she slides in. “I’ve never acquired the taste for beer. No matter what kind it is, it always tastes like wet cardboard.”
“You know what cardboard tastes like?”
“Yeah. Like beer.” She grins.
I grin back.
This girl is funny. Well-traveled.
Divorced. Cute. And fun.
The exact kind of temptation I do not need in my life right now. Yet as I sit across from her, taking in every little nuance about her like the freckle on the back of her hand, that broken heart tattoo… I can’t for the life of me think of an excuse to leave.

5 STAR Review

I love Stacey Lynn and her love for hockey romance. I love getting lost in her words. I loved the idea behind this story. Sebastian has been served a bad hand. It seems like he’s had his run of bad luck. Sebastian and his first wife weren’t meant to be. They tried to give it a go. They tried for babies. But it just wasn’t meant to be. No Sebastian has let his guard down. He’s fallen for Gigi. Gigi is the daughter of the bar owner where Sebastian and his team go after games. Gigi is sweet and kind. She has the ear for listening that Sebastian needs. I loved how this love story evolved. Sebastian and Gigi started as friends and grew from there. It was amazing to watch their relationship.

This book was everything I could have asked for and so much more. I loved that was were able to see a few of our Ice Kings. I love it when we get to see what’s been going on. I loved this book. I hope we get more from this series.
