Copy of SMRobinson_eBook_HighRes.jpg

We’ve all been there, some more than others, you know what I’m talking about, where you have the hots for the new business teacher.

I was one hundred percent that guy. I shamelessly flirted with her my senior year, only earning her irritation more and more. On graduation, I stood up to her husband after he got violent, and I’ll never forget the look in her eyes when she told me it wasn’t my place.

Fast forward to my senior year of college and what do you know, the new adjunct professor is the one and only Mrs. Robinson, she’s eight years older than me and smoking hot. Did I mention divorced?

She looks at me like I’m trouble, and I’m only happy to deliver on that promise. I’m going to show her how a real man treats a woman and use every weapon in my Pleasure Pony arsenal to do it.

Go big or go home.

5 STAR Review

This book was so much more than I could have hoped for. I’m not normally big on older/younger storylines, but this book did it for me. I loved every second of this hot, electric book.

Kora is everything I could have wanted in an older woman. Leo and Kora have always had a connection, dating back to his last year of high school. These two are off the charts hot. I loved watching this relationship evolve into so much more. I love that Kora isn’t ready to move on without working on herself first.

Leo has it bad for Kora. I love the connection these two have. I love the love between them. This book was everything I could have asked for an so much more. Please check out this amazing story.

A Billion Times No by Kenzie Reed is available now!! #OneClick today!

BOOK BLURB   His nickname’s Sexy Satan. For the past three years I’ve called him boss. So why is he telling everyone that he’s my boyfriend? Working for Chase Lancaster was supposed to catapult my marketing career. Instead, I’m trapped in personal assistant hell. His hobbies include barking orders, torpedoing my advertising campaigns, and reducing the office staff to tears. On a good day, he acts like I’m invisible. On a bad day, I remind myself arsenic is not an acceptable sweetener for coffee. And prison orange would be murder on my complexion. Imagine my surprise when Chase follows me home to Bitter End, North Carolina, where I’m about to endure my ex-fiancé’s wedding. The moment he chases off my date and offers to pose as my boyfriend, I know he’s got a hidden agenda—especially when he plays the part a little too convincingly. Unfortunately, I have to play along to find out what he’s really up to. To satisfy the town gossip squad, I’ll have to let him kiss me. Who knew Satan’s lips were so soft and inviting? And if we’re really playing the part, we’ll have to go to Lover’s Lane – testing my willpower beyond its limits. The more time we spend together outside the office, though, the more I see a different side of him. He’s still bossy and demanding, but is it wrong that I find it kind of, well … hot? This wedding is bound to be hell, so I might as well spend it in the arms of a sexy dev Goodreads: PURCHASE LINKS: Amazon US: Amazon UK: Amazon AU: Amazon CA:   TEASERS   EXCERPT OPTIONS:   OPTION #1: I mop off part of the desk, dry it, and then set down the fresh blotter. There are still a few splatters on the end of the desk, though, and Chase is directly in my way. “Can you please get up so I can finish cleaning?” I huff. He taps on his keyboard and smiles coldly at me. “Sorry, but you’ll just have to work around me.” I try to get revenge by bumping into him several times as I blot up the last of the coffee from his desk. I “accidentally” dig my heel into his foot, and he moves abruptly. Losing my balance, I trip and fall into his lap. Oh my God. I’m sitting on something that feels like a flashlight stuffed down his trousers. Holy hell. Is he all right, or should he seek medical attention for the swelling? And why is it hard as a rock? Is that because of me? He smiles politely at my shocked expression. “Something to say, Miss Abernathy?” I’m absolutely speechless. I squirm a little and bite back a moan. His smile stretches wider, and I want to die. Preferably impaled on his … No! I won’t even let myself think it!   OPTION #2: I’m two seconds away from bursting into tears when Chase slings his arm around my shoulders. I stiffen in shock—and something else. A strange heat floods my body, making me shiver. He pulls me in close and leans down as if he’s about to whisper something sweet and romantic in my ear. “Relax, you moron. Do you want to sell this, or what? I’m your wedding date, not your kidnapper.” My wedding date? He’d do that for me? I’m completely discombobulated by this sudden turn of events, and the feeling of his warm breath on my ear, and his muscular arm wrapped tightly around my shoulders. And I still have no damned idea why he’s in Bitter End.   ABOUT THE AUTHOR I’m a life-long reader of romance, and cut my teeth on Jennifer Crusie books (they were chewy, but flavorful.) I take in rescue dogs, and I’ve never met a dog I didn’t want to add to my pack. I love a good rom com, whether it be in the form of screwball comedy movies from the 1930s, modern day Katherine Heigl/Meg Ryan/Reese Witherspoon/ et cetera laugh-fests, or books by my many favorite authors. I love to hear from readers, so please stop on by or and say hey! AUTHOR LINKS Facebook: Website: BookBub:

5 STAR Review

This book…I want to start by saying I’m new to Kenzie Reed. I loved this story from the very beginning to the end.

Chase is a horrible boss. The kind you want to do bad, bad things too. Chase is mean, rude, and the kind of boss you never want. This man makes the worse boss look like a saint. Daisy, I don’t know why she puts up with Chase, let alone allowing Chase to pretend to be more. Daisy needs a distraction from what’s to come. She’s headed home for the wedding of her ex. But now Chase is telling everyone that he’s her boyfriend. Daisy is thrown a little off-kilter with that. The banter between Chase and Daisy is great. The longer they interact the more confused Daisy becomes. And the more she wants what might be.

I loved every minute of Daisy and Chase. I loved seeing them go back to Bitter End. I love how small-town life gives everyone the impression they can know your business. They seem to take extra care with the gossip when it comes to Daisy. I love Daisy and the person she is. But I love the person Chase was when it comes to Daisy. I love how he wasn’t afraid to go out and show her how she should be treated.

I loved the book from start to finish. I can’t wait to read more from Kenzie Reed.

5 STAR Review

Is it really betrayal when the relationship is already over? I seriously loved everything about this intriguing story. I loved Isobel. She was so over Julian. Thoughts, feelings, and actions make you see what’s really important in life. For Isobel, she’s done with Julian and being hurt. But now something has happened to Julian and he needs his brother to step in to help, his twin brother Bridge.

Bridge thought it was going to be simple. Help get Julian to become CEO of their father’s company. Good thing they are identical. The bad thing, falling for the girl his brother is all too happy to toss away.

I loved every addictive second of this story. I loved falling in love with Isobel. I loved, even more, falling in love in love with Bridge. These two were unexpected. They were sweet. They were everything I wanted them to be. I loved watching the walls come down. I loved watching them give their hearts over to love. Most of all I loved seeing someone get what they deserve in the end.

I love RVD. She’s amazing and I loved every single one of her words. I can’t want to see what’s to come from the next book in this series. Let’s pray someone is able to redeem himself.

🔥🔥 AVAILABLE NOW 🔥🔥 Just Roommates by Charity Ferrell is out now!! #OneClick Today!! BOOK BLURB Our relationship starts as a game. I sneak into his bar underage. He kicks me out. Repeat.   Maliki Bridges is the town’s hottest bar owner. He thinks I’m the mayor’s troublesome daughter. I think he has a stick up his a**.   Once I turn twenty-one, we become friends. Nothing more …   Until my world is turned upside down, and he offers me his guest bedroom. It’s a bad idea, moving in with him, but any opportunity I get to be around him I’ll take. Consequences be damned.   Becoming roommates is the riskiest game we’ve ever played.   Add to your Goodreads TBR: PURCHASE LINKS Amazon US: Amazon UK: Amazon CA: Amazon AU:   EXCERPT OPTIONS   OPTION #1 He strolls down a hall, opens a door, and does a ta-da gesture. “This is your new bedroom.” It’s smaller than what I’m used to, and the bed is only a full, but it’s either this or sleeping in my car. The biggest benefit of staying here is being around Maliki. That compensates for the lack of space. I point to the bed that’s complete with a blue plaid comforter and matching pillows. “That thing better be comfortable,” I joke. “Babe, anything is more comfortable than sleeping next to cheating slime.” Truth. He moves to the side, allowing me entry into the room. “I’ll grab you something to sleep in.” I look down and pull at the hem of my silk blouse that I paired with black, leather-look leggings and studded gold sandals. I collapse onto the bed and kick off my shoes, exhausted. I need a decent night’s sleep so I can figure out where I’m going from here. Maliki returns with a change of clothes, but I’ve already slipped underneath the blankets. “I’m too lazy to change,” I say around a yawn. He chuckles, taking a seat on the edge of the bed. “That’s the best kind of drunk. I’ll be downstairs if you need anything. Call. Text. Come down.” I nod, giving him a shy smile. “Thank you.” My breath knocks against my lungs when he reaches forward, clips a fallen strand of hair away from my face, and tilts his head to the side. “I don’t get it.” I blink, shuddering at his touch. “Get what?” “How a man can cheat on you.”   OPTION #2 “I can read you like my favorite book, Sierra. I see you—the real you, and as much as you fight to hide every thought running through that pretty little head from me, I see it. Let me give you an example: Right now, I see how pissed you are at me.” I lower my tone. “I also see how much you want me.” She reaches down to dig her fingers into my hand resting on her thigh. “You’re so full of yourself.” I raise a brow, staring up at her. “Am I lying?” “Maybe I can see through you. Maybe you’re the one who wants me.” “Trust me, you can’t read me.” She laughs. “Oh, but I can. Do you think I don’t notice your jealousy as much as mine? That I don’t see how you have to snap yourself out of your feelings for me? You want me as much as I want you, Maliki. The problem is you’re too chicken shit to do anything about it.” “Too chicken shit?” “Too fucking chicken shit.” My lips crash into hers. Chicken shit, my ass.   TEASERS ABOUT THE AUTHOR Charity resides in Indianapolis, Indiana.

I enjoyed this book. I’m for a good friends to lovers book, but this was so much more. I loved Sierra. I loved how devoted she was to wanting Maliki. I loved watching the hilarious show year after year. I loved watching Sierra pine for a man, that may never give her what she needs in return. I loved watching this relationship evolve to more.

I don’t want to give anything away, but this story took turns I didn’t see coming. I wanted these two together. I get why things happened the way they did, but that didn’t make it any less frustrating.

I’m new to Ms. Ferrell, but I enjoyed this story. I loved every second of getting lost in the frustration and the love that these characters had for each other. I can’t wait to read more from this author.

Caught in the Lies by Kacey Shea is LIVE!! Stop what you’re doing and #OneClick!

BOOK BLURB Fire captain Cameron McClain dropped into my life with as much subtlety as an unsolicited d*ck pic. I shouldn’t be attracted to him, but I am. He’s too old for me, too alpha for my tastes, and too bossy in the bedroom. Though, I have to admit he knows exactly how to use his . . . firehose. I’m not interested in a forever kind of relationship, but he’s down for whatever I’m willing to give. Our arrangement is perfect. At least that’s how it begins. I never wanted the happily ever after, but he’s just so tempting. The smart choice would be to end things before they combust, but for some reason I can’t push Cam away. The harder I try, the harder he—well, you get the picture. I wish things were different. I want to be someone worthy of his devotion. But the secrets I hold close, they don’t just eat me up inside, they destroy anyone who gets too close. So, I won’t fall in love. Simple, right? Wrong. So freaking wrong. I don’t just fall. I crash and burn for this man. But that’s just the tip of the iceberg. Turns out I’m not the only one telling lies and keeping secrets, and his are enough to rip us apart forever.   Cover Photography: Reggie Deanching, R+M Photography Cover Model: Blake Sevani Cover Design: Sommer Stein, Perfect Pear

3.5 STAR Review

Cam and Jill couldn’t be more opposite, but the same. Both have secrets. Ones that hurt them. Jill doesn’t want more with Cam. But Cam can see a future with Jill. I will start by saying, these two had definite chemistry. They were hot and explosive.

Here comes the part that probably won’t win me any points…I felt Jill was immature. At times she really focused on Cam’s age. I felt at times she focused too much on this. I almost felt like it was a shortcoming in her eyes. I also didn’t like that she focused on material things. For instance, she felt that because of Cam’s job, he could afford more than he had, meaning living with roommates.

All in all I liked this story, but there were parts that were really hard for me to process. I love how this book wrapped up. I enjoy Kacey Shea’s writing, but this book fell a little short for me.

REVEIW BLITZ: The Truth About Us by R.C. Stephens


An emotional second-chance love story with all the feels!


Amazon US:

Amazon UK:

Amazon CA:

Amazon AU:


Griffin Campbell was the typical bad boy. My father warned me not to get too close. But he’s handsome as hell with eyes the color of the ocean, and he’s fiercely loyal and loves unconditionally. I couldn’t stay away when he was the only boy to ever claim my heart. I gave him all my firsts . . . and he left me behind.

Ten years later, he’s returned home offering answers as to why he left because he wants me back—only I’m not the broken-hearted teenager he once fell for. His pretty eyes and killer muscles aren’t enough to mend the hurt that rages inside me.


Jolie Bryant was my best friend’s little sister. She’s sexy as hell, sweet as sin, and very forbidden—my favorite memory and my biggest regret.

I should stay away. I’m harboring secrets that will shatter her world.

The thing about secrets is that they always find a way to come out. I just hope that when mine do, she won’t turn away from me . . .

I want my second chance with the only girl I’ve ever loved, but it seems that fate has other plans.


  I throw my head back, laughing and happy that playful Jojo is back. “I remember the first time we kissed,” I say, looking into her eyes. She swallows. Her earlier playfulness falls away and is replaced with a serious, heated stare. “I remember the first time we danced.” My finger caresses the bare skin of her shoulder, and her green eyes go from shining emerald to a dark forest green. “Griff,” she whispers a warning. “I want to kiss you so bad.” My voice is gruff and filled with a need that far outweighs any craving for gelato. I don’t wait for her answer because the way she watches me has me undone. My lips press to hers slowly, a soft caress, a begging for permission. Her fingers come up and rake through my hair, tugging me closer. My tongue peeks from my mouth, begging entrance to hers as she opens willingly. The kiss is slow and testing at first. I’m scared of pushing too hard and having her pull away. She says she doesn’t want more, but the chemistry between us beats alive and strong. Her taste sets my body on fire as a million memories come crashing through my mind. Electricity sparks inside me, making me feel alive for the first time in what feels like forever. And now, with a simple kiss, I have come undone. My lonely heart beats in time with hers. My thumb brushes over the pulse point in her neck, and it thumps wild like mine. “Jolie,” I say her name like a prayer. “What are we doing?” she murmurs into my mouth. “What feels right,” I answer into hers. Primal instinct begs me to take her on this kitchen counter and make her mine. My fingers pull at her scalp and she moans into my mouth, and my hard-on pulses to her sweet noises. The kiss intensifies until we are both breathless and panting when suddenly, she pulls away from me, pressing her hands to my shoulders.

5 STAR Review

I enjoyed this story from start to finish. I loved the angst, the second chance, and the build-up of this story. Jolie and Griff have known each other for years. They were young and in love. But things being as they were, Griff and Jolie were never meant to be together. Griff left Jolie when she needed him most. Now, years later they are back together, but things aren’t as they once were. Griff has never given up on Jolie, but he had to leave her. Now the question is, 10 years later, can the truth set them free?

I loved this story from start to finish. I loved falling in love with Griff. I will say, there was a part where he broke my heart, but I think he made up for it in the end. The truth is, these two were meant for life together. I loved Jolie and the girl she was. I loved that she kept her guard up. I loved that when she finally let it down, she allowed herself to fall.

I love this story. I love these characters. I can’t wait for more from R.C. Stephens.

Review Blast: HIDE YOUR CRAZY by Lani Lynn Vale

I’m kind of a lady, but definitely more of a weirdo. 

Hearing the woman at the table behind him say that to her friend should’ve turned Logan Gibbs off.

It doesn’t. In all honesty, it only makes him listen harder.

He’s had enough weird in his life to last a lifetime. The last thing his complicated life needs is a woman in it who has no clue what color you get when you mix yellow and blue together.

Yet, her obvious blonde moments aren’t enough to deter him. Nor is her lack of finger-painting skills.

I’m a cop, not a miracle worker. 

Hearing the man in the group behind her say that should’ve had Katy Roberts running away as fast as her feet would carry her. Katy’s father’s a cop, and it’s hard enough to live her life with Daddy trying to dictate her every move. She needs another cop in her life like she needs yet another thing to go wrong.

To add onto that, she can’t find a job, has no love life to speak of, and has to be the oldest known virgin in Kilgore, Texas.

Yet, when she sees his painting—a painting that resembles a piece of the male anatomy more than the lighthouse they were supposed to be painting—she knows that she has to give him a chance.

The very last thing the two of them expect is for her father and his boss to force them to marry after an eensy-weensy accident. An accident that, surprisingly, both of them want.

5+ STAR Review by Jodi for Ruby Red Romance Review

I’m being 100% honest when I tell you I might totally be in love with Logan. I need Logan. I found myself craving Logan after reading this book. Logan is just such an amazing man. Things haven’t been easy for Logan. He was in the military. Then came home only to witness something that will forever haunt him. Now he has to live with the consequences every day. My heart hurt for him. But at the same time, he’s a good man. He’s honest and genuine. He’s not out there looking for someone, but he found Katy anyway. I loved Katy. When her family could have turned their back on her, they didn’t. Now she needs someone to have it more than ever. I loved that while she was scared, she kept moving forward. I love that she did that with Logan.

I’ve never hidden the fact that I love LLV. She’s one of my go-to authors. I love her stories. I love the characters. I love her writing. I feel like with every story LLV writes she leaves a little piece of her in it. This story was almost more than I could handle. I loved getting lost in the wonder of what would happen next. I loved learning more about who Logan and Katy were individually as well as who they could be together. I loved getting lost in the idea of Logan and Katy. I love the ride LLV took me on. This book was everything I wanted and so much more. Please check out this amazing new series!

Title: The Perfect Catch

Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: May 9, 2019
He didn’t think coming home would mean falling in love

Outfielder Calvin Ramsey returns to his Texas
farm home after being released from his team, an unexpected surprise sure to
tarnish the family baseball legacy. But when he finds a sexy stranger acting as
the temporary caretaker for his childhood home, all thoughts of baseball
She won’t fall for another player

After losing her savings to a swindler
ex-boyfriend, Josie Vance moves to Last Stand to start fresh where no one knows
her unhappy past or the con that bankrupted her. But her peaceful healing time
evaporates when the homeowner’s son arrives and throws himself into life on the
farm—and charming Josie. She can’t risk an affair that draws attention to her
or her past. Especially not when the public’s fascination with the
baseball-playing Ramsey clan is at an all-time high. Can she keep her secrets,
her low profile, and her heart too?
Purchase Links
Josie listened to the farm stand cashier explain.

“Clint, went into baseball and then, all of his grandsons
went into baseball and the granddaughter… well, she left Last Stand long ago.
Cal’s been in the majors the longest, and I like, never see him around here
even though I’ve worked here since last fall.”
So Cal had been keeping secrets from her—of sorts. Or had he
assumed she knew about his family full of athletes? His job explained the
expensive car and clothes, the body toned like a machine, maybe even the
wariness that dogged him. She imagined pro players were hounded by hangers-on
who wanted to be a part of their world for selfish reasons.
But not her. She’d prefer to put ten paces between herself
and anyone who was remotely famous. She needed to avoid the spotlight at all
costs until the trouble at home died down.
The phone vibrated three more times and the girl burst into
laughter. “Sorry!” she apologized to Josie. “I knew Darlene would go nuts when
she heard.” She picked up the phone and flipped it over, eyes scanning fast.
“She wants a picture? Oh God, how can I get a picture?”
Josie figured she’d lost her audience, but since the coast
was clear, she couldn’t resist asking one more question.
“You said he got cut this season?” she asked, wanting to be
sure she’d understood. “As in, lost his spot on the team?”
The clerk nodded. “It was so awful–”

“Josie, let’s go.” Cal’s voice startled them both as he came
through a back door on the opposite end of the store.
She scrambled back from the counter while the teen dropped
her phone. Josie hurried past the blueberries and melons to the archway where
Cal now stood, his expression stony.
Had he overheard her question? Guilt swamped her even as she
kicked herself for not being more careful.
“Ready,” she announced brightly, peering past him into the
greenhouse that connected the barn to the farm stand.
“Are you certain?” His voice was low, just for her ears,
before he took her hand and tugged her into the greenhouse behind him.
A fan whirred overhead, conditioning the air that smelled
like potting soil and growing things. He tipped a metal door closed behind
them. A door that closed silently and reminded her how thoroughly he’d startled
her when he re-entered the store.
“Absolutely.” She wanted to say it with conviction. To move
on and see the bee hives. But her heart was beating too fast with him holding
her hand.
And standing too close to her.

His green eyes probed hers, his nearness making her recall
his very intriguing male physique. Was it really her fault to feel a flare of
feminine interest when he was a professional athlete and had the body that went
with it?
“Make sure you know what you’re in for, Josie, before you
say yes.” His voice lacked the geniality that she’d heard him use with the
young baseball fan. It was all gritty edged and hard now.
And did something wicked to her insides. Something she
couldn’t allow herself to feel so soon after another man had deceived her.
Nerves made her blurt the first thing that came to mind.

“I signed on for bee hives.” She’d been very clear about
that from the outset, hadn’t she?
Cal released her hand, but he didn’t back away. “Except now
you’ve broken our truce by asking questions. So in return, I’ve got a few
questions of my own.”

Harleigh Belle—the cute little lady that never gives him a second glance. After seeing her for the first time while he was in prison, she’s stayed on his mind for three long years. Each time she comes in to visit with her friend on family day, he can’t help but stare. Then the day comes that he’s set free, and he’s almost disappointed that he’ll never see her again. Except fate has different plans. He hasn’t been back in his house for more than three hours when he sees her. Harleigh Belle in all her glory…oh, and her husband that is everything Slate isn’t. He tells himself that her being fifty feet away from him, all day every day, is a complete coincidence.  One that he shouldn’t take advantage of. The more time passes, the harder it gets to stay away. Until one day, and one very ill-timed thunderstorm, ruin everything. Who knew that baby-making-weather was a real thing?

5 STAR Review by Jodi for Ruby Red Romance Review

This book far exceeded what I thought I was expecting from LLV. This book was love. It was heartbreak. I was learning to recover and move forward. Slate was unlike any of the Bear Bottom Guardians we have met before. Slate served time for avenging his fiancee. Time that brought him feeling for a beautiful woman he would see off and on. It also brought him membership and club he never asked for. I loved watching him learn how to adapt in a world that might not be so forgiving. I loved watching his walls break and him become the man and person he was set to be.

Harleigh was unlike anything any heroine I have read before. She’s strong and a little strange, but who wouldn’t be when you’ve faced things no woman should. I love how fierce she is. I love how she isn’t afraid to stand up for herself and those she loves. I love watching her fall. Most of all, I love watching her make Slate fall.

These two were perfect together. Add in one amazing trip to Disney World and you have a match made in heaven. My love for LLV grew with this story. I cannot wait to see what she has for us next.

Review Blitz: BIRTH OF A BABY DADDY by Piper Rayne

If you're having fun living your bachelor life in your Alaskan hometown and out of nowhere a woman shows up holding a baby she insists is yours, you need a plan-a birth plan.

BP Step #1 - Lift your jaw off the floor.

BP Step #2 - Figure out the baby's age-do the math.

BP Step #3 - Try to remember the woman and with any luck, her name.

BP Step #4 - Double check that she's not confusing you with your twin brother.

BP Step #5 - Ignore your five sister's scowls as your entire family watches the drama unfold.

There's only one thing you shouldn't do.

BP Step #6 - Don't assume she's there because she wants your daughter to call you Daddy. You'll only end up disappointed.

Time to figure out a new plan-one that changes her mind.

5 STAR Review by Jodi for Ruby Red Romance Review

Oh my goodness. I loved this book. I loved Harley and Rome…of course, I loved Calista. This book was more than I was expecting. Rome and Harley met at the bar she works at. One thing led to another and well, you get the point…I loved getting to know more about Harley and where she comes from. I loved watching the relationship between her and Rome develop and become more.

I love Rome. He might have been a playboy in the past, but now he is making up for things. I loved watching him become a dad. He’s great Calista. I loved how not only did he want his baby girl, but he stepped up.

I love the Bailey’s and all that they are. I can’t wait to see who’s next!!!
