Falling for the Bad Girl (Cutting Loose)

 

 

FALLING FOR THE BAD GIRL (CUTTING LOOSE) BY NINA CROFT

 

 

Release Date:  February 27, 2017

 

 

SYNOPSIS

 

As a second generation detective, Nathan Carter is a cop, through and through, one who definitely sees things in black and white. But his work ethic—and libido—are thrown off balance when he heads up the case against jewel thief, Regan Malloy. Because with one sizzling look, she’s got him hot and hard. And he’s been that way, ever since.

 

Growing up, Regan’s favorite hobby was learning to crack safes, and she was very, very good at it. Still, she’d always tried to keep to the straight and narrow, and only strayed when she believed a friend was in desperate straits. Now she’s out of prison and starting over. If only she could forget that she’d spent the last three years fantasizing about the stunningly gorgeous detective who locked her away.

 

It’s inevitable that they meet up again—in bars, hotels…and hotel beds. Despite their differences, they can’t keep their hands off each other. Still, it’s just desire. If they give it enough time, it’ll burn itself out. Because a good boy and a bad girl can’t possibly make it work. Can they?

Falling for the Bad Girl (Cutting Loose)Falling for the Bad Girl by Nina Croft

My rating: 5 of 5 stars



ARC Review: Falling For The Bad Girl (Cutting Loose) by Nina Croft

We've been conditioned to see the world in a black or white format, but in truth we are surrounded by many shades of gray. Regan learned that lesson from the school of hard knocks. She lead with her heart, instead of her mind and ended up getting burned. Now seeking to redeem herself, she plans to start anew. With all the drama from her past she knows that will be hard to do. When her past ends of rearing it's head in the form of a sexy fantasy, will she risk more than her freedom this time and give her heart completely? A by the book cop, Nate is a man at a crossroads. The only family he has left is quickly slipping away. The job he's devoted most of his life to is getting harder everyday. When his fantasy women unwittingly walks back into his life, he just may be willing to risk it all. Could a wayward ex-con be the woman meant to be his Ms. Right? Falling for the Bad Girl is sensuous, moving and full of wise words and bad choices. Ms. Croft manages to create a sexy story with a powerful message. People are more than labels. We all make mistakes, it's the lesson we learn that make us the people we are.

Laire, who wants so much more from life than her little island can offer, is swept away by wealthy, sophisticated Erik, who is, in turn, entranced by her naiveté and charm. The two spend a whirlwind summer together that ends on the knife-point of heartbreak and forces them to go their separate ways.

Years later, when fate leads them back to one another, they will discover the terrifying depth of the secrets they kept from each other, and learn that shattered hearts can only be healed by a love that willfully refuses to die.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars


ARC Review: Don't Speak (A Modern Fairytale) By Katy Regnery

Katy Regnery is a trailblazer. Her abundant creativity has allowed her to find innovative ways of leaving her mark in the genre of romance. Whether it's exploring the paranomal or giving a modern twist to a classic, she makes her presence known. With Don't Speak, she took a well known story of courage and beauty and turned it into a tale of acceptance and discovery. The Little Mermaid has always been one of my favorite fairytales and Ms. Regnery has got me to fall even more in love with it. Laire and Eric's journey to forever may be more complicated and less simplistic than a Disney cartoon but Don't Speak delivers enough powerful emotion to make Hans Christian Andersen proud. A classic is made in the heart and the author made it clear that's what she was aiming to do. WELL DONE!

REVIEWHEATING IT UP (RED HOT RUSSIANS) BY ELIZABETH HARMON

 

Heating It Up (Red Hot Russians #3.5)Heating It Up by Elizabeth Harmon

My rating: 5 of 5 stars


ARC Review: Heating It Up (Red Hot Russians) By Elizabeth Harmon

Elizabeth Harmon designs stories that are sultry enough to fight off the chill and emotional enough for the romantic in her readers. The previous novels in her Red Hot Russians series have bordered around the backstage life of skaters. From the heartbreaking failures to their triumphant returns, Ms. Harmon set hearts racing and hormones raging with her champions of the arena. Heating It Up is just as winning, but it's beauty lies in that it is more a story of redemption off the ice. Sometimes, it takes hitting rock bottom for a person to discover their inner strength. Nora has lost it all, her heart, her reputation, her career and the will to fight. Alexei, helps her find herself and let go of the past in order to conquer her future. Salvation can come in the most surprising of packages and Heating It Up is a great example of the power of faith and the strength of hope.

PERFECT FOR YOU (SUNSHINE CREEK VINEYARD) BY CANDIS TERRY

 

 

Release Date:  February 28, 2017

 

 

SYNOPSIS

 

Declan Kincade has spent so much time chasing success he’s almost forgotten how to just live. Lately though, his all-business routine has been thrown into disarray. Brooke Hastings is the best employee Dec’s ever had: polished, capable, and intelligent. After four years, he’s just realized that she’s also smoking hot. But their working relationship is too valuable to stake on a fling, no matter how mind-bendingly pleasurable it promises to be.

What’s worse than never meeting the right man? Finding him, and then working side-by-side every day while he remains absolutely blind to your existence. That is, until one temptation-packed road-trip changes everything. Teaching her gorgeous, driven boss how to cut loose and have fun is the toughest challenge Brooke’s ever faced. But it’s one that could give both of them exactly what they need, if Dec will take a chance on a perfect—and perfectly unexpected—love.

Perfect for You (Sunshine Creek Vineyard, #2)Perfect for You by Candis Terry

My rating: 5 of 5 stars



ARC Review: Perfect For You (Sunshine Creek Vineyard) by Candis Terry

Candis Terry is a one click author for me. She is perfect escapism reading. Her characters never take themselves too seriously and despite that, her novels manage to appeal to the heart, stimulate the hormones and continuously fall into the irresistible category. Though not as emotional as Jordan and Lucy's journey of mistakes and regret in A Better Man, Perfect for You has it's moment of unforgettable. Brooke and Declan's story is more about living life to the fullest than dwelling on past regrets. Brooke is a risk taker. She knows what she wants and when it matters most, has no problem with asserting herself. Declan can learn a thing or to from this firecracker. The ability to get out of your head for a while is reason enough to give this author a try.

REVIEW:  THE BASTARD BILLIONAIRE (BILLIONAIRE BAD BOYS) BY JESSICA LEMMON

 

The Bastard Billionaire (Billionaire Bad Boys Book 3)The Bastard Billionaire by Jessica Lemmon

My rating: 5 of 5 stars


All of the Crane brothers have struggled with matters of the heart but Eli's phobias were more complex. A life in transition set him on a course of self recrimination and the life of a recluse. He acted the part of a beast but inside that blustering exterior lay the heart of a broken man. Loss, anger, pain pity and blame have become his constant friends. That is until a caring family and a determined beauty set out to shake up his world and wake up his heart. The Billionaire Bastard travels beyond the beast and delivers sensuality, redemption and inspiration while dealing with a heavy subject. It is one of Ms. Lemmon's crowning achievements in my opinion.

Finn (Farraday Country Book 6)Finn by Chris Keniston

My rating: 5 of 5 stars


ARC Review: Finn (Farraday County) by Chris Keniston

Ms. Keniston paints a beautiful portrait of family, love and faith in a small town with heart and a bit of ethereal mystery on the side. A four legged friend returns to lay the groundwork for a second chance for Finn and Joanna. Joanna is a city girl with a touch of country in her heart. Finn is country through and through. The land, his family and hard work are deeply ingrained in his soul. Can these opposites learn the value of compromise before all is loss? The most endearing quality about Finn and Ms. Keniston is she allows the reader to draw their own conclusions. Whether it be a mysterious dog, who's there to lend a helping hand. A proud man scared to open himself up to hurt again. Or lastly a reunited couple seeking a second chance. Her stories send the message of hope in good times and bad. We all need that. Ms. Keniston delivers an abundance of heart along with big personality.

PUPPY LOVE (REDWOOD RIDGE) BY KELLY MORAN

 

 

 

Release Date:  February 28, 2017

 

 

SYNOPSIS

 

After a passionless marriage under the scrutiny of high society, Avery Stowe is taking back her life. All she wants is a little privacy and a quiet place to raise her autistic daughter, Hailey. Redwood Ridge, Oregon, seems to offer all the right ingredients. Except for the problem of the local sexy veterinarian. The last thing she needs in her life is to fall for his irresistible allure, even if he is a nice guy who keeps doing her favors. But the well-meaning patrons of her new hometown have other ideas, and it appears playing Cupid is one of them.

Cade O’Grady has never met a woman he couldn't handle, but when Avery Stowe walks into his office late one night cradling an injured puppy, he’s struck stupid. Which might explain her total lack of interest in him. But now that she’s working for his family’s clinic, he doesn't have to lust from a distance. He might just have a chance at convincing Avery—and her too-guarded heart—that falling for the right man isn't a mistake . . .

Puppy Love (Redwood Ridge #1)Puppy Love by Kelly Moran

My rating: 5 of 5 stars


This is my second book by Kelly Moran and I am impressed. Her stories are heartfelt. Her characters are like family. She speaks to the heart with her brand of good- natured down home love stories. Puppy Love is such a sweet story. There is nothing more precious to a mother than the well being of her child. A fresh start in a less hectic atmosphere is just the thing for Avery and her daughter to begin again. A little small town romance with a adorable backdrop of characters and a an A list main cast make for a light hearted second chance story.

HOMETOWN COWBOY (ROCKY MOUNTAIN RIDERS) BY SARA RICHARDSON

 

 

Release Date:  February 28, 2017

 

 

SYNOPSIS

 

NEVER FALL IN LOVE WITH A COWBOY


Jessa Mae Love is done with relationships. No matter how tempting he might be, she cannot--will not--fall for a man like Lance Cortez. The outrageously handsome cowboy is practically a living legend in Colorado, as famous for riding bulls as he is for breaking hearts. What would a big-time rodeo star like him see in a small-town veterinarian who wears glasses, rescues animals, and cries when watching rom-coms? Turns out, plenty.

Raising bulls, riding the circuit, and looking after his ailing father--Lance never stands still for long. Yet Jessa catches his attention, and the more she tries to resist him, the more he wants her. When she agrees to move to the ranch to keep an eye on Lance's dad, Jessa tells him they have to keep it professional: no flirting, no sweet talk, and definitely no kissing. But with Jessa now living under his roof, that's easier said than done . . .

The best gifts are the ones presented with love.  Words to live by.  Hometown Cowboy has LOVE written all over it.  Ms. Richardson's kinship with her readers is evident with every word she writes and each character she creates.  She targets the heart and scores with every aim.  Hometown Cowboy starts with regrets and sorrow but gradually builds with a brighter hope for a better tomorrow.  Lance and Jessa's path is not always pretty, but it's built on real emotion and not manufactured in any way.  To heal the pain of the past, we have to face it, accept it and move forward.  I never tire of this author, her melodies always hit the right chord with me.

Release Date:  February 28, 2017

 

 

SYNOPSIS

 

New York Times bestselling author Kristen Proby continues to delight the senses with the latest novel in her delectable Fusion series.

As the take-charge wine bar manager of Seduction, Portland's hottest new restaurant, Katrina Meyers is the definition of no-nonsense, and she isn't afraid of anything. Well, almost anything: she hates to fly. When she's forced to travel on a death trap with wings, the turbulence from hell has her reaching for any safe haven—including the incredibly handsome guy sitting next to her.

Ryan "Mac" MacKenzie hasn't been able to get his sexy seatmate out of his head. The way she clung to him stirred something inside him he didn't think existed: tenderness. As the owner of a successful wine touring company, Mac thinks he's got a handle on what life can throw at him and he's not prepared for any surprises, especially in the feelings department. And when he brings a tour into Seduction, he sees the petite spitfire he just can't forget.

Mac is determined to discover what else they have in common besides fine wine and the inability to keep their hands off each other. But what will it take for two stubborn people to realize that what they have is so much more than a hot chemistry between the sheets and to admit to falling in love…?

ARC Review:  Blush For Me (Fusion) by Kristen Proby
 
Kristen Proby and her Fusion series bursts with flavor.  I keep coming back because the message is a powerful one and the characters are hard to ignore.
Fusion is built on sisterhood, friendship, equality and love.  The message:  "It's okay to be different, just be yourself."  We all need to hear that at one time or another and being true to oneself is the greatest piece of advice a person can receive.   Kat wears her self - confidence like a badge of honor.  She speaks her mind.  Goes after what she wants and is working on facing her fears.  When a test of fear comes back to bite her in the butt, her white knight is there in the next seat to hold her hand.  Mac is no hero, but he is tempted  to break his own rules.  Now he has to decide, if facing his biggest fear will net him his greatest reward.  Love with attitude.  Kristen Proby does it up right.

 Crave Me (O'Brien Family #3)

 

 

CRAVE ME (O'BRIEN FAMILY) BY CECY ROBSON

 

 

Release Date:  February 28, 2017

 

 

SYNOPSIS

 

Wren O’Brien isn’t your typical female. As the only girl from a loud Irish family with seven siblings, she prefers fast cars to lip gloss and bad boys to good men. It’s the reason she’s nursing a wounded soul and keeping her distance from a dangerous ex.

Evan Jonah is running an empire and just moved from the lavish thoroughfares of London to the gritty streets of Philadelphia. When he walks into the nearest dealership, he’s expecting to find a reliable vehicle to handle the brutal winters, not a sexy female car rep with killer legs.

Wren doesn’t know why “Hotness in a Suit” asked her out. She doesn’t expect a great time or a night of passion that knocks her on her ass. But that’s exactly what Evan shows her.

She also never counted on how hard and fast she’d fall. But men like Evan—good men with even better hearts—don’t desire tough-talking Philly girls for long.

Evan has never met a woman like Wren. But he’s up for the challenge and ready to prove her wrong.

Wren is one tough cookie. She knows her heart, speaks her mind and never turns away from a challenge. To look at her, no one would guess the insecurities that hide beneath her tough as nails exterior. Crave Me guided me through a number of firsts. Not only am I discovering a new author, but Erin and Evan are my introduction to the O'Brien family as well. Wren is the spice. The flavor that grabs hold of the senses and lingers after the last bite. Evan is the main course. He knows how to satisfy the heartiest of appetites in the most subtle of ways. If every O'Brien is as magnetic, I just may have to make a return visit. A grand introduction to a spirited family.

ARC Review: Starting Over On BlackBerry Lane (Life In Icicle Falls) by Sheila Roberts

Sheila Roberts has a style that's all her own. What originally drew me to her as an author is the intricate way she has of interweaving multiple players into one storyline. She allows readers to feel more like a family friend than an interloper. Simple stories told in a unique way that blend heart, life lessons and realistic scenarios to create a great escape into a heartwarming new world. Through the eyes of divorcee, a single lady and a happily married but equally frustrated wife, Starting Over On Blackberry Lane examines the bonds of sisterhood, friendship and starting over in a purely organic almost therapeutic way. For a little while Ms. Roberts took me outside of my comfort zone and gave me a better appreciation of life, love and happiness.

A Million Little Things (Mischief Bay #3)

 

 

A MILLION LITTLE THINGS (MISCHIEF BAY) BY SUSAN MALLERY

 

 

Release Date:  February 28, 2017

 

SYNOPSIS

 

From the bestselling author of The Girls of Mischief Bay and The Friends We Keep comes a twisty tale of family dynamics that explores what can go terribly, hysterically wrong when the line between friendship and family blurs

Zoe Saldivar is more than just single-she's ALONE. She recently broke up with her longtime boyfriend, she works from home and her best friend Jen is so obsessed with her baby that she has practically abandoned their friendship. The day Zoe accidentally traps herself in her attic with her hungry-looking cat, she realizes that it's up to her to stop living in isolation.

Her seemingly empty life takes a sudden turn for the complicated-her first new friend is Jen's widowed mom, Pam. The only guy to give her butterflies in a very long time is Jen's brother. And meanwhile, Pam is being very deliberately seduced by Zoe's own smooth-as-tequila father. Pam's flustered, Jen's annoyed and Zoe is beginning to think "alone" doesn't sound so bad, after all.

Friendship isn't just one thing-it's a million little things, and no one writes them with more heart and humor than book club sensation Susan Mallery!

GAME CHANGER:  SEATTLE STEEL HEADS FOOTBALL (GAME ON IN SEATTLE)  BY JAMI DAVENPORT

 

 

Release Date:  February 28, 2017

 

SYNOPSIS

 

When horse racing and football collide, Hunter McCoy, star tight end of the Seattle Steelheads and neophyte horse owner, finds himself in a battle of wills with a sexy horsewoman and a stubborn, opinionated race horse.

Kate Vanderhof-Carrigan's family has raised champion Thoroughbreds on their Kentucky bluegrass farm for over a century. Lately the farm has fallen on hard times, but Kate is determined to return Oak Brook to its former glory. First, she must satisfy an odd clause in her grandfather's will. She's been given five years to produce a winner of horse racing's biggest prize of all, the Derby, or lose the farm to her siblings and their development plans. Time has run out, and Hunter's talented horse stands between Kate and her last shot at the Derby. Only Kate never counted on her heart entering the race.

Hunter is juggling his responsibilities to his two-dozen investors, his blind sister, his football career, and his commitment to his tribe. The last thing he needs is an unwanted attraction to a spoiled rich girl who doesn't fit into his carefully crafted plans. Not only are they rivals on the race track, but she doesn't understand or appreciate his dedication to his Native American heritage. Yet despite the odds, all bets are off when Hunter and Kate find themselves in a relationship they can't resist.

With the stakes much higher than the Derby purse, can these two long shots win the biggest race of their lifetime or will their hearts finish out of the money?

My rating: 5 of 5 stars


ARC Review: Convenient Proposal to the Lady (Hadley's Hellions) by Julia Justiss

Ms. Justiss has a lock on the three H's. Ben is an honorable man, with a tender heart and Alyssa and he definitely give off heat. Convenient Proposal to the Lady examines how an act of kindness between strangers can lead to finding the love of a lifetime. Ben may not live up to societies standard of a hero, but he scored some major points with me. His willingness to protect an innocent woman from a dire situation proved he was more than what he even believed himself to be. Alyssa is a dreamer with a gift for the arts. Frustrating, naive but her open mind, made her a bit easier to take. Despite the unscrupulous villains, Ben and Alyssa had an easy time of stealing my heart.

ARC Review: Grip by Kennedy Ryan

With Grip, Ms. Kennedy left no stone unturned. She exposed every heartache, flaw and yearning of both characters. Some pretty and others as haunting as the feelings that festered in their hearts. Bristol is a woman with a plan. Her friend needs her and she is determined to come through. Grip wants to be a success. But at what cost? If Flow was a coming of age journey between friends, Grip exposes a depth of growth and healing for this long standing friendship. A redemption of sorts that leaves a few cracks in the heart but proves inspiring to the soul. Ms. Ryan opens the mind while stealing the heart.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars


Marlon is a dreamer. He yearns for the unknown. Bristol is a realist. She has set her mind on success and will do whatever it takes to achieve her goals. Opposite in every way. However, the bond that emerges is one of support, friendship and maybe something more. Kennedy Ryan has a style that grabs at the heart, first and foremost. Flow lays the groundwork for the beginning of something special.

What does one do with a matchmaking cat named Romeo?

Spirited and beautiful, Jillian Parker is one of Marietta’s newest business owners. Still, her mother worries about Jillian’s bare ring finger. So in order to give her mother something else to fuss over, Jillian adopts a cat named Romeo. He turns out to be anything but a docile lap cat.

One snowy night, Romeo makes a break for it. With Jillian right on his heels, they have a near miss with a passing pickup driven by Avery Wainwright, one of Jillian’s closest friends. A rodeo accident has the sexy cowboy returning home to recuperate, and he’s not happy about it.

So when Avery finds himself lassoed into the Bachelor Bake-Off, he turns to the one person who has always helped him out—Jillian. But will teaching him to take chances outside of the show ring have them both discovering that their feelings for each other run much deeper than they ever imagined?

EXCERPT

 

They climbed in the sleigh and then Avery covered Jillian with a heavy lap blanket. “Are you ready?”

 

She nodded, clutching the thermos. “I am now.”

 

And then they were off, gliding over the snow. The snow muffled the sounds. And though the moon was hidden behind the clouds, it was still bright out. As they made their way through the field, Avery glanced over at Jillian. She was nestled beneath the plaid blanket and still clutching the thermos. She looked stunning. He should have brought her out here a long time ago.

 

“What are you smiling about?”

 

Jillian’s voice drew him from his thoughts. “Who’s smiling?”

 

“You are and you know it. So what’s up?”

 

“Nothing. I’m just enjoying the evening.” It was so much more than that, but he really didn’t want to risk ruining this moment. He’d worked so hard to pull it together. He wanted to savor their time together.

 

For a while they glided along in silence. He had a particular destination in mind. It didn’t have a name. It was just a spot where you could see for miles. And at night, it was like visiting a planetarium with all of the stars twinkling overhead.

 

“Are you warm enough?” he asked.

 

She nodded from inside her big, fuzzy hood. “I’m perfect. This is amazing. Do you take the sleigh out very often?”

 

He shook his head. “This is my first time. I usually come out here on horseback.” He slowed the horse to a stop before turning to Jillian. “I wanted to do something special for you. A way to thank you. You’ve always been there for me and my family, whether it was helping me with the Bake-Off or being the best nanny in the whole world.”

 

“You…you really think that?”

 

He’d obviously done a lousy job of communicating his thoughts in the past. He would have to do better going forward.

 

“I’m sorry I didn’t make that clear before.” He stared into her eyes. “I really appreciate everything you’ve done for me and my family.”

 

His gaze dipped to her lips. They were shiny and full. And he was overwhelmed with the desire to kiss her again. So what was holding him back?

 

They were all alone on this snowy evening. And as he’d come to discover while he was planning this evening, it was a very romantic setting. If he were ever to have a chance with her, it would start beneath the starlit sky. But should he risk it? Should he put himself out there again?

 

It wasn’t like he was asking her to marry him. It was a kiss—a simple, no-strings-attached kiss. It was a starting point.

 

He rested his arm over the back of the sleigh. His heart started to pound hard in his chest. He’d kissed a number of girls over the years on the rodeo circuit and he’d never put this much thought into it. But none of them had meant as much to him as Jillian. He leaned toward her.

 

Suddenly Jillian raised the thermos between them. “Hot chocolate?”

 

He settled back in his seat. Had he read the signs wrong? Was he that rusty where women were concerned?

PERFECT FOR YOU (SUNSHINE CREEK VINEYARD) BY CANDIS TERRY

 

 

Release Date:  February 28, 2017

 

 

SYNOPSIS

 

Declan Kincade has spent so much time chasing success he’s almost forgotten how to just live. Lately though, his all-business routine has been thrown into disarray. Brooke Hastings is the best employee Dec’s ever had: polished, capable, and intelligent. After four years, he’s just realized that she’s also smoking hot. But their working relationship is too valuable to stake on a fling, no matter how mind-bendingly pleasurable it promises to be.

What’s worse than never meeting the right man? Finding him, and then working side-by-side every day while he remains absolutely blind to your existence. That is, until one temptation-packed road-trip changes everything. Teaching her gorgeous, driven boss how to cut loose and have fun is the toughest challenge Brooke’s ever faced. But it’s one that could give both of them exactly what they need, if Dec will take a chance on a perfect—and perfectly unexpected—love.

Perfect for You (Sunshine Creek Vineyard, #2)Perfect for You by Candis Terry

My rating: 5 of 5 stars



ARC Review: Perfect For You (Sunshine Creek Vineyard) by Candis Terry

Candis Terry is a one click author for me. She is perfect escapism reading. Her characters never take themselves too seriously and despite that, her novels manage to appeal to the heart, stimulate the hormones and continuously fall into the irresistible category. Though not as emotional as Jordan and Lucy's journey of mistakes and regret in A Better Man, Perfect for You has it's moment of unforgettable. Brooke and Declan's story is more about living life to the fullest than dwelling on past regrets. Brooke is a risk taker. She knows what she wants and when it matters most, has no problem with asserting herself. Declan can learn a thing or to from this firecracker. The ability to get out of your head for a while is reason enough to give this author a try.

Born and raised in a sleepy village in North County Dublin, Bee Stevens only ventured outside of it in her imagination. If you asked her as a child what she wanted to be when she grew up, she would have said Journalist. That changed several times over the years, but her dream was always to write, in one form or another. Bee published several short-stories in an in-flight magazine for an airline she worked for but never pursued it outside of her daily routine. When illness changed her daily routine without much preamble, she found being stuck at home was the kick in the arse she needed to finally write the book lurking within her. These days, though she has ventured further afield, Bee can still be found in the slightly less sleepy, but still small village, with a cup of tea in her hand and a dog on her lap, as she tries to type around the ball of fluff who rarely leaves her side.

We've been conditioned to see the world in a black or white format, but in truth we are surrounded by many shades of gray. Regan learned that lesson from the school of hard knocks. She lead with her heart, instead of her mind and ended up getting burned. Now seeking to redeem herself, she plans to start anew. With all the drama from her past she knows that will be hard to do. When her past ends of rearing it's head in the form of a sexy fantasy, will she risk more than her freedom this time and give her heart completely? A by the book cop, Nate is a man at a crossroads. The only family he has left is quickly slipping away. The job he's devoted most of his life to is getting harder everyday. When his fantasy women unwittingly walks back into his life, he just may be willing to risk it all. Could a wayward ex-con be the woman meant to be his Ms. Right? Falling for the Bad Girl is sensuous, moving and full of wise words and bad choices. Ms. Croft manages to create a sexy story with a powerful message. People are more than labels. We all make mistakes, it's the lesson we learn that make us the people we are.

The Last Di Sione Claims His Prize

The Last Di Sione Claims His Prize - Maisey Yates A desperate plea and a mysterious painting lead to an epic hunt in Maisey Yates' The Last Di Sione Claims His Prize. Gabby and Alex had a tough time working through past torments and old hurts, but they found all encompassing passion that threatened to destroy them both. Will the quest for this precious artifact heal two hearts or doom two souls. Ms. Yates definitely knows ravishing. Her stories thrive on strong characters and their trials and tribulations, but this particular couple had a difficult time maintaining a momentum. The pace seemed a little confused.

Pretty Face

Pretty Face - Lucy Parker In their business image is everything. So what happens when sparks fly between a sexy movie star and her distinguished director? I had the pleasure of reading Ms. Parker's Act Like It, a while back and fell instantly in love. Behind the drama of the West End, lies insecurities, spitefulness and entertainment. Pretty Face brings heat to the set. Arrogant director, insecure actress, volatile combination. Gossip, attraction and morality are tackled as Lily and Luc struggle through a business relationship that quickly turns personal. Will the chaotic chemistry ruin their hard earned careers? Lucy Parker has the ability to find humor in serious situations. She merges the dramatic with the eclectic to create static electricity.

I'd dated his brother.

He didn’t remember and I wish I could forget.

I may have sworn off the Wright family a long time ago. But when I returned home, Jensen Wright crashed into my life with the confidence of a billionaire CEO and the sex appeal of a god. Even I couldn’t resist our charged chemistry, or the way he fit into my life like a missing puzzle piece.

Too bad he’d forgotten the one thing that could destroy us.

Because Jensen Wright doesn’t share. Not with anyone. And if his brother finds out, this could all go down in flames.

When it all was said and done, was he the Wright brother?

EXCERPT


Her smile was magnetic, and I just wanted to kiss her. I mean…I’d wanted to kiss her all night. But sitting there, in front of the last lit house, with Christmas music playing in the background and her smile radiating joy, there was nowhere else I’d rather be. That thought hit me so suddenly and I didn’t even know why.

I put my truck into park, leaned over to her side of the car, and pushed my hand up into her dark hair. She froze, silhouetted by the light display behind her. Her eyes locked with mine, green meeting brown, and her eyes widened with surprise. She breathed out softly, and I could feel her pulse ratchet up at my touch.

This was the girl who had pulled me across the room at Sutton’s wedding, like a magnet finding its pair. This was the tension that I’d felt when we first spoke. Here was the world of desire and lust that had clouded both of our minds ever since our first kiss.

My face was only inches from hers. I wanted to take what was mine. I wanted to claim her mouth and then her body right here in the cab of my truck, like we were young, wild, and carefree.

But, instead, I couldn’t seem to stop staring at her.

She laughed lightly to try to defuse the tension. But it wasn’t possible, and it was a feeble effort.

“Are you going to kiss me?” she whispered boldly.

I didn’t need any further prodding. I crushed my lips against hers. It was like striking a match. Our lips moved against each other, desperate with the need to get closer, to have more. She opened her mouth for me, and I brushed my tongue against hers. The groan that emanated from deep in the back of her throat made my dick twitch. Our tongues volleyed for position. She was just as aching for attention as I was.

I heard the click of her belt buckle, and soon, she was pushing her body closer, moving over the divide of my truck. My hands fell to her ass, and I effortlessly hoisted her up and into my seat. She squeaked in shock but didn’t break contact. Instead, she straddled me and let her hands wander across my chest.

My hands never left her ass because, damn, did that woman have an ass. She was grinding up against me, and I moved into a full-blown hard-on at her ministrations. She must have realized what she was doing to me because, when she swiveled her hips in place, she moaned against the feel of my dick.

In that moment, I didn’t give a shit that we were acting like teenagers, parked outside of a stranger’s house, bucking against each other for just an ounce of satisfaction. I was ready to strip her bare and fuck her until she forgot every word to every Christmas song and only remembered my name.

That was, until she rocked back just a little too hard, and a loud honk erupted from the hood of the truck.

HAPPY BOOK WEEK: WHISPER OF LOVE (LOVE IN BLOOM: THE BRADENS OF PEACEFUL HARBOR) BY MELISSA FOSTER

 

 

 

 

NEW RELEASE........

Tempest Braden adores her family and her small hometown, but sometimes too much of a good thing can be confining. At almost thirty, having watched most of her siblings find true love, she’s anxious to experience her own happily ever after, and the move to Pleasant Hill, Maryland, is just the change she needs. When she rents a room from ruggedly handsome, and closed-off, artist Nash Morgan and his adorable son, Phillip, she thinks she’s found a little slice of heaven on the outskirts of town, where she can concentrate on building her business. That is, if she can ignore the undeniable heat between her and the sinfully hot single father.

 

 

When Nash bought his farmette, he had one goal in mind—to provide a loving, stable home for his son. He never imagined he’d be raising Phillip alone, or renting out a room to keep their heads above water. Then again, he never imagined losing his brother, or spending two years sailing around the world with parents who seemed to forget one son was still alive.

 

 

Sparks fly from the moment Tempest moves in, and her positive energy and inquisitive nature brings new life into Nash and Phillip’s quiet, confined world. For the first time in years, Nash wants to let a woman into his world, but while his loss made him stronger, that strength came at a price, leaving him walled off and wary of opening his heart again.


 

WHISPER ON LOVE is part of the Love in Bloom series. While this can be read as a stand-alone novel, for even more reading enjoyment you may want to read the entire Love in Bloom series in series order.

REVIEW: WHISPER OF LOVE (LOVE IN BLOOM: THE BRADENS OF PEACEFUL HARBOR) BY MELISSA FOSTER

 

Whisper of Love (The Bradens at Peaceful Harbor #5; The Bradens #17; Love in Bloom #36)Whisper of Love by Melissa Foster

My rating: 5 of 5 stars





A twist of fate, a splash of irony and whole lot of heart prove to be the driving force behind Whisper of Love. Melissa Foster does it again with laughter, love and soul stirring emotion. Tempest has a big heart and the love of a good family, but she has yet to find her heart's desire, her soul mate like her siblings have done. Nash is a man with an abundance of love to give, but a past tragedy has shaped him into a man of caution. Add to that a beautiful, yet mischievous little boy and the heart melting begins. Whisper of Love has everything from drama, to humour, to precious moments of insight. The best way to describe Tempest, Nash and Phillip's journey would be a family in the making. A count your blessings story with a dash of faith thrown in.

Annalise "Leesa" Avalon never realized that one sentence could change her life until one of her students revealed his crush--and within twenty-four hours she finds herself under fire. After a grueling investigation that turns her life upside down, she steals away to Peaceful Harbor, Maryland, with a new identity to try to pull herself back together and figure out her next step.

Steve Johnson is living his life’s passion watching over the Colorado Mountains as a ranger and wildlife consultant. But his peaceful life is upended when overzealous and insanely beautiful Shannon Braden flits back into his life after returning from a brief trip home to Maryland. He thought his attraction to her was under control—after all, she’s only in Colorado temporarily, and he doesn’t do casual affairs.

 

Shannon’s return to Colorado has as much to do with the game of cat and mouse she and Steve have been playing as it does the data she’s been hired to collect. But despite her efforts to explore the undeniable heat simmering between them, Steve’s intent on keeping his distance. 

 

 

 

When a ranch abutting the national park goes up for sale, Steve will do whatever it takes to keep it from falling into the wrong hands. And when all his attempts fail, he’s left with no alternative but to follow Shannon’s guidance into the online world he abhors in order to raise the funds. The more time they spend together, the deeper their attraction becomes, and a game of cat and mouse turns into an unstoppable connection. But when Shannon’s assignment comes to an end, will it mean an end to them, too?

BLURB

 

Lincoln Stallworth, bass player for Black Ice, has quietly watched each of his band mates fall in love and has accepted the fact he'll probably never find the same for himself. He doesn't really believe in true love, couldn't fully understand the absurdity of it, or the notion there could be just one perfect person for everyone. A debilitating health issue began to shadow Lincoln in the middle of their last tour. As his physical symptoms worsen, Lincoln has to fight the urge to hide from the world and himself inside his estate.

 

Aaron Baylor enters Lincoln's life at his lowest point. Lincoln feels broken, damaged beyond repair, and he's ready to give-up. Aaron's patience and unwavering support slowly begin to pull Lincoln back to being present in his own life and gives him hope for a future and for love. Will Aaron be the glue that holds the broken pieces of Lincoln's life together? Can Lincoln fight his way back to good health and take a chance at love? Or will the task be too great for Lincoln to handle?

 

Beyond The Music is Book 7 in The Rock Gods series. This is the final story in the series, but also the launch of a new M/M spin-off series, Guarding the Gods, which will have many cameo appearances from The Rock Gods characters in each story. If you enjoyed The Rock Gods, I hope you'll give Guarding the Gods a try!

WOW! Boss, one whole year since you released Beyond The Music, and also since I started working for the most incredible boss anyone could only have hoped for. It’s been the most amazing year, celebrating your success along side you and all your achievements thus far. It’s been an absolute pleasure to be on the craziest but most exciting ride ever. Who knew we could have such a giggle while you have been writing stories your fans love, and love you they do. Thank you for giving me a chance to prove myself. Thank you for introducing me to a whole new world of love. Most of all thank you for being YOU! My Rock Queen. I love you.

Dearest Ann!! Congratulations on this wonderful achievement. Being a writer doesn't come without difficulty but with your stories and the success of your books you make it look easy. I know however you are one of the most hardworking ladies in the industry and your astonishing books and incredible writing are a testament of that. Thank you for allowing me to be part of your journey and for bringing so many incredible characters into our lives. You indeed ROCK!

 

Isa Jones Joandisalovebooks

Congratulations on a whole year passing by since the release of Beyond The Music. Also, almost a year since I was able to see your pretty face in person and give you a big ole hug. Thank you for bringing your Rock Gods to life and sharing a piece of yourself through Aaron. Your books bring sexiness and happiness to your readers. Can't wait to see what these characters continue to tell you in the next year. Love you.

For personal reasons, Lincoln's story touched me to my soul. Only you, Ann, could manage to combine such serious topics with horny, gay rockers without lessening its importance or taking away from their uber-sexy hotness. That, my friend, is why you are our Superior Rock Goddess!

Ann is one of my favorite authors. Whenever I get a new Ann Lister book in my hands, I war with myself. I want to dive right in, yet I want to savor it, as well. I love her writing and she created my all time favorite couple, Jayson and Cooper, from Make You Mine. I've never met Ann in person, I hope to rectify this one day, but from our interactions on Facebook, I think she is not only kind and generous, but she also truly appreciates her readers.

 

Happy Publiversary, Ann!!

Ann Lister ….. When I think of you I think nothing but good things.  I think of several words…. Friend, sweet, sexy, Mother of the Rock Gods, strong, mother, wife, author.  I remember chatting with her way back when and was so impressed with her!  You have a great writing style and such a smooth way of getting the story across, I am in awe each and every time I read your books.  You work tirelessly on your stories so that they are the best that they could possibly be.  I know I always want more and more books from you, but you don’t want to rush any story or release it before it’s perfect.  I respect that!

You are such a strong person.  You don’t give yourself enough credit for a lot of things.  You have learned to take control of your “business” and learned about trust and friendships.  You’ve been hurt and learned how to get back up and do better!  I am so proud of what you have done for yourself.

You are so humble.  You still get nervous with each new book launch.  I was so honored the first time you asked me to format your book.  I have loved working with you and treasure our chats.  I would love to meet you in person some day!!  You are one of those people that I would totally hang out with even if you didn’t write books!  I love you to the moon and back!!!

Grip

Grip - Kennedy Ryan
ARC Review: Grip by Kennedy Ryan

With Grip, Ms. Kennedy left no stone unturned. She exposed every heartache, flaw and yearning of both characters. Some pretty and others as haunting as the feelings that festered in their hearts. Bristol is a woman with a plan. Her friend needs her and she is determined to come through. Grip wants to be a success. But at what cost? If Flow was a coming of age journey between friends, Grip exposes a depth of growth and healing for this long standing friendship. A redemption of sorts that leaves a few cracks in the heart but proves inspiring to the soul. Ms. Ryan opens the mind while stealing the heart.

The Billionaire Takes All

The Billionaire Takes All - J.S. Scott ARC Review: The Billionaire Takes All (The Sinclairs) by J.S. Scott

No the Sinclairs are not perfect. They've seen their share of betrayals, heartaches and disappointments, but when the tears fade, the dust clears and angry words and hurt feelings evaporate, they are still a family. Ms. Scott is adamant about that. That's what keeps me coming back. The Billionaire Takes All puts Julian in the spotlight. All the wealth in the world can not make up for his tragic past. Why does the man that seems to have it all, feel so lost and alone? There is a bright spot in his otherwise dark existence. Kristen. Her world is far from the fantasy and power of the nouveau rich. Determined to keep her eye on the prize and her head out of the clouds, she works hard. J.S. Scott gives her readers the best of both worlds. A little bit of the fairy tale with an abundance of emotion. I found it hard not to fall for a guy that doted on his dream girl the way that Julian did Kristin. Ms. Scott can deliver some of the most heart wrenching stories but there is always a light at the end of the tunnel. Love can conquer any obstacle. If given a chance.
