Cover Reveal – Salvaged by Jay Crownover

About SALVAGED

Hudson Wheeler is a nice guy. Everyone knows it, including his fiancée who left him with a canceled wedding and a baby on the way. He’s tired of finishing last and is ready to start living in the moment with nights soaked in whiskey, fast cars, and even faster girls. He’s set to start living on the edge, but when he meets Poppy Cruz, her sad eyes in the most gorgeous face he’s ever seen hook him in right away. Wheeler can see Poppy’s pain and all he wants to do is take care of her and make her smile, whatever it takes. 

Poppy can’t remember a time when she didn’t see strangers as the enemy. After a lifetime of being hurt from the men who swore to protect her, Poppy’s determined to keep herself safe by keeping everyone else at arm’s length. Wheeler’s sexy grin and rough hands from hours restoring classic cars shouldn’t captivate her, but every time she’s with him, she can’t help being pulled closer to him. Though she’s terrified to trust again, Poppy soon realizes it might hurt even more to shut Wheeler out—and the intense feelings pulsing through her are making it near impossible to resist him. 

The only thing Poppy is sure of is that her heart is in need of some serious repair, and the more time she spends with Wheeler, the more she’s convinced he’s the only man with the tools to fix it.

Review – Room Service by Poppy Dunne

room-service-kindle

review-graphic

This is one of the funniest, swooniest, most incredibly romantic stories I have read in a lomg time. I mean, big belly washing laughs! Laugh out loud, snorting moments. Poppy’s debut is definitely not one to be missed.

Alex Harrington only wanted a couple of things – a great act to save her boss’s club and even better room service to fuel that search. It wouldn’t hurt either if she didn’t have to face her ex at her brother’s wedding. Too bad her well meaning mother is rubbing her ex in her face and that she’s coming alone – good men are so hard to find! Never fear! In walks the sexiest solution to her dilemna… a delectable room service waiter named Ben. He agrees to help Alex by pretending to be her boyfriend for the weekend. He fills the bill so well, even better than Alex could have ever dreamed! Maybe even too well… from the start they have so much chemistry. He’s charming, funny and ridiculously sexy. In her haste to have revenge against a thoughtless ex-boyfriend and get her nosy mother off her back, Alex may have gotten herself in a little over her head. But boy, what a way to go!

Poppy, what a fabulous debut you have made! A beautifully written, well paced story… a sexy, witty leading man and his strong willed curvy lady. Ben and Alex aren’t your typical couple and their love story made me just so happy. And don’t forget the LAUGHS! I can’t help but giggle and highly recommend this amazing story!

FANTASTIC, POPPY!

synopsis

I’ve spent seven nights cooped up in this five star hotel, sleeping on 1000 thread count sheets and working sixteen hours a day. At least room service is covered under my expense account. But all work and no play leaves a girl dateless for her brother’s wedding.

Prospects aren’t totally bleak, though. Four meals a day, I get to drool over this sexy room service guy: he’s got a perfect body, easy smile, and a sense of humor that has me snorting over my personal pizza. He’s all that and a bag of chips. Specifically, the jumbo bag of ranch barbecue chips that I ordered for breakfast out of desperation on Day Four.

I finally found the courage to ‘accidentally’ let my bathrobe slip, and ask him to be my plus one at my brother’s wedding. So maybe I had to offer him a little money. So what? There’s no way I can face my family, make my ex rue the day he left me, or screw off this work stress without his helping hand.

But what happens when I find myself falling for my fake, paid-for boyfriend? Judging by the comped mozzarella sticks he brought me for breakfast, maybe there’s a chance he’s falling for me too?

Review – The Ground Beneath our Feet by Leslie McAdam 

I have finished what is now Leslie McAdam’s BEST book to date and I love Leslie McAdam books. The Ground Beneath our Feet is SENSATIONAL.

I INHALED this book. From start to finish Leslie’s words fully engrossed me, pulling me so deep into a story of hope, future, wishes and love. What Leslie manages to do PERFECTLY with this book is make it HONEST AND REAL. My whole being fell in love with Jessica, who was the true hero in this book. 

Jessica was just beautiful. Her past was devastating and I felt every break of her heart and every fear. I ADORED that Leslie made her curvy, made her a real woman, with body & health issues that were so easy to relate to. The whole character was written seamlessly.

And Mikey, OH MYYYYY GOSH, MIKEY! Where the heck can I find him? Broken from an also devastating past, Mikey wormed his way into my soul from the off. His lust and love for Jessica gave me tingles and I just wanted to high five him for it. 

Together Mikey and Jessica were explosive, their connection built slowly until they were burning freely which was BREATHTAKING

I loved the slow burn, loved the feels, loved the reality of it all. The Ground Beneath our Feet is a hot, swoony, sensational romance that captivates a real life issue and makes is beautiful. There just aren’t enough stars for this book.

TAKE THE LEAP

She’s got her feet planted on the ground. He’ll teach her to fly.

Jessica, a curvy, driven, neat freak lawyer, is ecstatic when she finally gets her dream job—even though it’s taking her away from her hometown. When she meets over-the-top, man-mountain Mikey, a fitness buff and veterinarian with a messy life in all senses of the word, she thinks she just walked into the second-most exciting adventure of her life.

His larger-than-life personality fascinates her, but also shakes the foundations of her quiet, introverted self, knocking her off-kilter. It’s a bad idea to let him take her on as a weight-loss client. It’s an even worse idea to get involved with him since he’s her manwhore roommate…and she’s seen him in action.

If they give into their undeniable attraction, is it just a train wreck waiting to happen? Or will their desire fuel a chance at real love?

If you love steamy romance, be sure to check out the fourth standalone in the Giving You series.

Review – Unwrapped by Callie Harper 

GIVE ME MORE!!! 

Like RIGHT FREAKING NOW! Holy shiznits Unwrapped is AMAZING!

I’ve been dying to meet Hannah since reading Unbelievable and I’m currently wanting to high 5 Callie so much right now. Hannah is a truly fantastic heroine. I loved her sass, her style, the fact she had curves and LOVED them. She is without doubt my favourite of all Callie’s heroines!

There aren’t many authors who can consistently write books and make the hero’s bigger and better each time. But Callie does. Callie’s men are fire, intense, powerful, dominant males that just barge themselves into your heart and soul. In Unwrapped Callie gave us Jack, the hot drummer in Ash’s rock band. I’ve always been partial to guitarists but now, now I’m in love with a Drummer! Jack was everything and more! So commanding, so swoony, so freaking HOT. 

Now I don’t usually rate novellas 5 stars because mostly they aren’t long enough for me, and while Unwrapped is a hot, fast, fun novella, it’s a magnificent hot, fast and fun novella. Saying that I’d love to read more about these two at some point in the future. 

Unwrapped is perfect for the upcoming cold, Christmassy, nights and trust me, you won’t need the fire to warm you up, no, this novella will leave you BURNING HOT.

Jack and Hannah have their hands full planning a giant NYC holiday charity party with rock stars to wrangle and celebrities to dress. Hannah’s completely sworn off men. Jack has enough going on without a ball-busting, tattooed siren rocking his world. 

They need to keep their hands off each other. But the holidays have a funny way of getting a whole lot of crazy. There’s what you plan, and then there’s what happens. And some presents are too damn good not to unwrap…

Note: Unwrapped is a standalone novella with some crossover characters from the Beg For It stories.

Review – Rules of Contact by Jaci Burton

ROC.jpg

Rules of Contact by Jaci Burton

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Love is not something you go out and look for. Sometimes what you’re looking for is already there. Love finds you, and when it does, ready or not, it’ll be the best thing to ever happen to you.

Love found me sweet and sexy sports story, Rules of Contact, by Jaci Burton. The romance poured off the pages while the heat set them ablaze, both penetrating straight through me. Rules of Contact is a good old-fashioned love story full of sweetness, swoon, and smolder with a forbidden twist.

I fell in insta-love with Flynn Cassidy, Defensive End for the San Francisco Sabers, with his dark hair, blue eyes, tall and muscular body, tattoos, dirty mouth, and charming personality. Oh was he the perfect catch. ALL ALPHA. PURE PERFECTION! I LOVED Flynn, and his dirty words and big heart so much.

Beautiful, blonde, blue-eyed, and tall Amelia Lawrence is not looking for love or any relationship unless you count food or her love for cooking as a chef. Amelia is a chef whose owner of the restaurant she works at happens to be Flynn Cassidy, panty-melting player and football extraordinaire. Amelia can’t help but develop a crush on her oh-so-hot boss.

Flynn and Amelia’s chemistry is electric like the buzz in the air during a sold-out football game. A slow burn sizzled through the story as the build-up brought on butterflies that fluttered with feels, my heart fluttering too. Flynn and Amelia’s passion pounded from the pages straight to me. The angst from that pent-up passion was an adrenaline-induced high…and oh did I FEEL THAT RUSH!

“That zing.”

“Yeah. An attraction. A chemical thing. When you feel a tightening in your body, and awareness of the other person.”

“Do you feel it right now, Amelia? When I touch you?”

Oh. My. SWOON. I burned as the smolder of Flynn’s words ignited a fire in me and melted to molten lava as the sweetness oozed off the pages straight to my heart.

“I think you’re tempted by me.”

“I am not. Nothing about you tempts me.”

“You sure about that?”

ROC Teaser 2.jpg

The intense attraction between Amelia and Flynn, employee and boss, is like the forbidden fruit. Amelia and Flynn must fight temptation and not mix business with pleasure. However, chemistry is a powerful force as strong as the most powerful offense where the defense may be powerless to stop the score.

“I like the way you say my name when you’re all hot and bothered. I want to hear you moan my name when I make you come.”

roc-teaser

Flynn’s lethal dose of dirty and sweet words get Amelia hot and bothered. Temptation never looked so good, and oh did Flynn tempt me.

“Just what kind of girl do you think I am?”

“My kind of girl.”

As much as their attraction is off-the-charts hot, Amelia will needs a delay in the game before she gets hurt like in the past. Her heart needs to be protected like a football, or Flynn will never score in this game of love.

I SWOONED HARD, my soul soared high, and my heart was hit like a football over this sweet and steamy story. The passion pounded from the pages straight to me. Jaci Burton dropped a tender and terrific touchdown of a romance with Rules of Contact, a blissful book you need to tackle hard like a football.

synopsis.jpg

In the new Play-By-Play novel by the New York Times bestselling author of Unexpected Rush, a football player with all the right moves on the field needs a better game plan for his love life. 
 
A defensive end for the San Francisco Sabers, Flynn Cassidy is used to being in the spotlight—he just doesn’t enjoy it. But if getting in front of the cameras will help his new restaurant succeed, he’s willing. Now if he could just meet a woman who loved him and not his fame…

After her divorce, Amelia Lawrence is thrilled to start over as head chef at Ninety-Two. It’s just the opportunity she needs to heat up her career—if only she wasn’t wildly attracted to her sexy new boss. Their chemistry might be sizzling hot, but Amelia has no intention of being burned again.

Amelia is genuine and fun and Flynn can’t get enough of her—and Amelia loves every second she spends with the tough but tender Flynn. But trust is a hard fought battle for both of them. Breaking the rules of contact and surrendering to their passion was easy, but are they willing to risk their hearts to win at the game of love?

Review – The Only One by Lauren Blakely

The Only One Cover.png

The Only One: A One Love Novella by Lauren Blakely

karens-review

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

“And when one of them meets the other half, the other half of himself, whether he be a lover of youth or a lover of another sort, the pair are lost in an amazement of love and friendship and intimacy and one will not be out of the other’s site, as I may say, even for a moment.” ~Plato

Maybe it’s because my favorite candies are caramels.

Maybe it’s because of soft spot for second-chance romances.

Maybe it’s because of my mad love for Lauren Blakely books.

No…not maybe at all…but YES!!! YES to the caramels! YES to this swoon-filled and soul-slaying second-chance romance! YES to another Lauren Blakely brilliant and blissful book! YES to The Only One YES! YES! YES!

There is something special about second-chance love that speaks to the soul. Two soulmates broken apart whose love has never died are granted a do-over…that coveted second chance. Their hearts, once sliced in half, find their way back to each other and become whole again. Second-chance love stories are my heart…my soul…my obsession; The Only One was my magic…my heart…my soul…my swoon…MY KRYPTONITE.

The Only One sparked to life as magic poured from the pages, shining in beauty and brilliance like a diamond. Oh that SPARK! The Only One had ALL OF THE SPARK…ALL OF HEART…ALL OF THE SOUL. All of MY heart. All of MY soul.

Ten years ago beautiful Penelope, Penny, met a gorgeous man, Gabriel, while traveling in Spain. They had a once-in-a-lifetime, passionate and powerful love affair with combustible chemistry and a connection of soul mates.

“My three-day love affair under the starry Spanish sky with the man who whispered sweet nothings in my ear while he played my body like a virtuoso piano isn’t getting a second act.”

TOO Teaser.png

Penny is reunited with her first and only love, Gabriel, through a chance meeting in New York when a work function brings them together. After a decade she is going to meet the man who still holds her heart.

“The twenty-four guy who dazzled me when I gave him my virginity a decade ago has nothing on this man in front of me. He’s as beautiful as a heartbreak.”

TOO Teaser 2.png

Oh beautiful is this man from inside out, and oh did Gabriel grab my heart and melt me from inside out! I LOVED GABRIEL SOOO MUCH!

“I have to believe in fate, too. Do you? Believe in fate?”

TOO Teaser 3.jpg

Oh Gabriel! His words were poetry that penetrated through my heart like Cupid’s arrows.

Gabriel sees the stunning woman in front of him who reminds him of his Penelope, the one he loved and lost when she left in Spain, the woman who still holds his heart.

There is no way Penny can resist Gabriel’s gorgeous looks, charm, sweetness, and passion. Feelings flow to the surface after being dormant for a decade.

“Perhaps the ice I had thought had encased my heart when it came to this man is breaking.”

Oh the angst that aired bled into this book with as much fervor as the love lingering in the air.

“My lips brush hers, and the world stills. For the briefest second, I don’t want to move. All I want to do is savor this sliver of time—this most perfect of moments when I kiss her again.”

TOO Teaser 5.jpg

That kiss! Small in size but HUGE in history and love, that KISS WAS EVERYTHING!!! It was the turning point of a renewed love affair of soul mates.

“My feet don’t touch the ground. Gravity has no hold on me. I’m floating, falling, gliding….his lips both wonderfully familiar and yet fantastically new.”

That kiss melted from the pages, penetrating that passion right to me as I felt it too. Those lifetime kisses that you know will lock you to love for life.

“I’m going to worship you. I’m going to adore you.”

“You already do.”

too-teaser-6Oh. My. SWOON!!! My soul was slayed in the best way as The Only One owned it and me! I was breathless at the blossoming love between these soul mates, this love that lifted me up into the sky where I floated among the clouds.

too-teaser-8

As fast as the love was rekindled, the loss lingers, hurt hovering over Penny and Gabriel along with the past like a dark cloud. Trust was a traitor that threatened to invade their new found happiness.

“He leaves, and that frustration inside me explodes into hurt and sadness as I watch him walk away.”

My heart bled for Penny and for Gabriel. As the feelings of hurt and betrayal float through the air, chemistry also permeates with a passion. A passion that transports them both to their intense love affair years ago in Barcelona.

“Only him. It’s only ever been him.”

too-teaser-7

The Only One is THE ONE, the fairy tale that flutters in feels and dances in dreams, the one that caused me to FALL HARD IN LOVE. The Only One left me breathless in a brilliant and beautiful story that was love at first sight. Oh did this utterly romantic romance feel real.

The Only One has that special spark that made me feel butterflies as it shot stars in my eyes. I flew high on Cloud Nine to Swoon Land! The Only One is a magical and mesmerizing second-chance love story full of sweetness, swoon, and soul. Oh how I loved thee…SOOO MUCH!

The Only One is Lauren Blakely’s most romantic romance ever! PURE BOOK BLISS! The off-the-charts chemistry, the passion, the promise of more, the love that never died, the sweetness, the swoon, and heart and soul…The Only One was EVERYTHING!!! This passionate love affair of words was the only one for me! I’m still swimming in a sea of swoon where I want to wade longer in the bliss of this Blakely book.

************************************************************************

EXCERPT

The clock mocks me.

  As the minute hand ticks closer to eight in the evening, I wrack my brain to figure out if I got the time wrong. Maybe we picked two. Maybe he said ten. Maybe we’re meeting tomorrow.    

  My chest twists with a desperate anxiety as I toy with the band on my watch.

  But as the fountains of Lincoln Center dance higher under the waning light, I’m sadly certain there was no error in communication.

  The only error was one of judgment.

  Mine.

  Thinking he’d show.

  Drawing a deep, frustrated breath, I peer at my watch once more, then raise my face, searching the crowds that wander past the circular aquatic display at Manhattan’s epicenter for the performing arts. This fountain is so romantic; that’s why we chose it as the place to meet again.

  One week later.

  Foolishly I hunt for the amber eyes and dark wavy hair, for the lean, tall frame, for that mischievous grin that melts me every time.

  I listen for the sound of him amidst the melody of voices, wishing to hear his rise above the others, calling my name, apologizing in that sexy accent of his for being late.

  My God, Gabriel’s accent was a recipe for making a young woman weak in the knees. That was what he had done to me. The man melted me when I first met him last month in Barcelona at the tail end of my summer of travels across Europe.

  When I close my eyes and float back in time, I hear that delicious voice, just a hint of gravel in his tone, and a whole fleet of butterflies chase each other in my belly at the resurgence of that faraway romantic dream.

  I open my eyes, trying to blink away the inconvenient intrusion of memory. I should go. It’s clear he’s not coming tonight.

  But, just in case I mixed up the times, maybe I’ll give him one more minute. One more look.  

  One more scan of the crowd.

  I let the clock tick past eight.

  I still don’t see him.

  I’ve been here for more than two hours, sitting on the black marble edge of the fountain. Scouring the corners of Lincoln Center. Peering left, then right down Columbus. Circling, like an animal at a zoo—pathetic modern-day female waiting for male to stay true to his word.

Review – Womanizer by Katy Evans

womanizer-cover

Womanizer by Katy Evans

Karen's Review.png

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Love cannot be forbidden. The more that flame is covered up, the hotter it burns. Love can always find a way. ~ Pyramus and Thisbe

When a Katy Evans book lands in my hot hands, I shut out the world because that book BECOMES MY WORLD. Nothing exists except Katy Evans’ words and me, words that I devour yet savor, words that penetrate straight through my heart like Cupid’s arrows, shooting sensations straight through me. Her brilliant and beautiful books are my love…my life.

I clutched this story with a bit of anxiety, adrenaline coursing through my veins, as I exited my everyday life and entered the world of the Womanizer. I knew that this last man standing in the trio of manwhores—the Womanizer—would cast a spell on me as the others did and claim me for life. Oh was I claimed; I swiftly succumbed to this story that slowly and smoothly seduced me. Womanizer just began and I already did not want it to end…ever.

Sigh. Smolder. Swoon. Sigh. Smolder. Swoon. Womanizer enticed me with a build-up of feels…a slow burn of smolder, swoon, and soul. I bled in angst. I burned in need. I was engulfed in flames, a fire that sparked into a full inferno. My appetite for these powerful and penetrating words could not be sated enough. Womanizer’s words WERE ALL THE THINGS that made me melt from inside out, shooting straight through my heart like Cupid’s arrows, sensations swimming around me.

Womanizer filled me with a heady mix of energy and emotion, an exhilaration that made me feel giddy and dizzy as if this story were my drug and I were the addict. Oh was Womanizer MY ADDICTION. Womanizer was the air that I needed to breathe…my oxygen…as every breath belonged to this book. THIS BOOK BECAME ME.

Oh Callan Carmichael. Tahoe Roth’s best friend and billionaire with a sexy, bad boy, James Dean look and vibe. Copper hair and golden eyes. Yummy facial scruff. Tall. Cut. Cocky. Complex. Intense. PURE PERFECTION.

Womanizer Teaser 5.jpg

“I can’t believe anything can be both this male and this perfect.”

Olivia Roth, Tahoe’s little sister, is interning at the company Callan owns. Beautiful, blonde, and brainy Olivia is out to prove that there is more to her than meets the eye and definitely not a dumb blonde, a stereotype that follows her and one that she uses as motivation to rock the business world.

A chance meeting on the terrace at work changes her life when she encounters the most sinfully sexy, cool, charming, and confident man who becomes Olivia’s confidant with chemistry between combustible. A man who happens to be Olivia’s boss.

Womanizer Teaser 3.jpg

“His lips capture mine, our tongues moving slowly to meet. It’s like two lightning bolts crashing…God. I’m being kissed from the inside out. His hunger only feeds mine.”

That kiss melted me from inside out. I felt the passion from Olivia and Callan penetrate me, owning these pages…owning me.

Womanizer Teaser.png

“Say you can handle what I’m about to do to you. Once I’m in, I’m owning every freckle I find….You’re coming so fast, so hard, and so very frequently tonight there won’t be a day that you come and not think of me.”

I. WAS. ON. FIRE. The heat set me ablaze, as I burned along with this sensual and seductive story. The forbidden fanned those flames of fire, sparking even more desire.

Womanizer Teaser 2.png

“I’m a full-time working girl and I can’t be Callan’s shiny new toy.”

Olivia will surrender her body, but not her heart as she won’t let this Womanizer hurt her or squash her plans for becoming a success businesswoman.

“I’m trying to do the right thing, but I’m not a good guy.”

For the first time in his life, Callan is wowed by a woman, one who is more just sex, and he can’t fight his addiction to Olivia who has turned his world upside down. His best friend’s sister is supposed to be forbidden, but temptation has never felt so right. He is torn between capturing his beautiful butterfly with whom he is falling in love and letting her spread her wings to fly.

I loved their fierce friendship that burned as bright as their intense chemistry. Friendship along with chemistry is the perfect beginning of a relationship, the substance, the build-up to love.

Womanizer Teaser 4.jpg

“I had my whole life planned out, and maybe Callan won’t change his spots for a girl—there’s a reason he’s the last man standing.”

This player may finally end the game as the prize is too good to resist.

“I’m a reasonable man. So why, when it comes to you, do I have no reason?”

Oh how I LOVED CALLAN. Tough and tender. Intense and irresistible. Complex and compassionate. Sweet and sexy. All man. ALL MINE.

“I know I can break. I know this can break me.”

Will Olivia let Callan into her heart or will this womanizer remain the last man standing?

Womanizer bleeds passion with heart and soul in an addictive and seductive, smoldering, and swoon-filled story of forbidden love. Oh did I smolder and swoon! Womanizer was the wind beneath my wings where I flew on an adrenaline and angst-filled ride. Womanizer was my addiction. My ache. My adrenaline. MY ALL. Womanizer twisted itself around every piece of me, quickly capturing me in its clutches. IT did not let go; I did not let go. I FELL FAST. I FELL HARD. I FELL IN LOVE WITH EVERYTHING WOMANIZER!

Katy Evans once again outdid herself in one UNPUTDOWNABLE, pulse-pounding, and pleasurable penned piece of PERFECTION!!! Weaving her magic into wondrous words that make you melt to mush, Katy is an artist and those pages are her canvas where she paints words to life. SO MUCH LIFE AND LOVE. OH DO I LOVE HER WORDS WITH EVERY BREATH I TAKE. Her beautiful, broken, and brilliant books bled into me….becoming me. Oh did Womanizer come to life!!!

Womanizer is the perfect end to the Manwhore series. The innocence…the angst…the explosive chemistry…the raw sexiness…the sweetness…the swoon…the fierce friendship…the forbidden element…ALL OF THE FEELSEVERYTHING!!! Dizzying, dominant, and spine-tingling, Womanizer was my rush. This all-consuming, raw, and racy romance felt real, as it wrapped itself around my head and heart, relentlessly tugging and tearing, and never letting go. I don’t ever want to let go.

synopsis.jpg

From New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Katy Evans comes a brand new contemporary romance. WOMANIZER is a full standalone, and no other books in the series need to be read.

You’ve seen the headlines: Womanizing billionaire player! Watch out! Stay away!

We were just two strangers. Facing a forbidden attraction, a chemical connection. Neither of us expected or wanted it to amount to more.
But I had never been drawn to a guy the way I was drawn to this one: my brother’s best friend, and CEO of the company where I interned.
Even knowing I should stay away, I proved to be too human, after all.
The chemistry was amazing.
The laughs were incredible.
I opened up to him in more ways than I’d opened up to anyone before.
But sex was as far as I’d go.
Just sex because he was too irresistible.
Just sex because I wouldn’t be falling for him.
Just sex because I’d leave in three months, and I’d like for my brother not to kill me, and for nobody to find out he was my wicked little secret.
He wasn’t the One.
He was just a womanizer.
But for a time, he would be mine.

Review – Hail Mary by Nicola Rendell 

Annnnnnd the crowd goes WILD! The crowd being me because I’ve finished Hail Mary and I think I’m having some pretty big feelings for this book. 

Nicola Rendell has once again taken romance and BLOWN IT UP. She has once again put a spin on everything we know and love and made it better. More intense. More passionate. Just MORE. Nicola is an enigma. I have no idea where she sprung from back when she released Professed but HOLY WOW this woman is a writing goddess and I’ll happily bathe in all her wordy magic. Nicola is a true diamond and story telling GENIUS. I honestly don’t have enough praise for the woman. She gets it ALL. I instantly fell in love with Hail Mary. It immediately became one of my top reads of 2016 and I COULD NOT put it down. It infiltrated itself so bloody deep. From the indestructible sexual tension that just BLEEDS from this book, to the breathtaking romance, to the devastation that pulled at my heartstrings, I was 100% IN. Nothing was going to stop me devouring this book. Even Frankie Knuckles has wedged himself into my heart.

TINGLES!

Jimmy Falconi, ruthless, raw and powerful but so damn passionate and beautiful. The man made me all tingly. He sent my emotions CRAZY. I was ALL over this beautiful specimen. He rendered me speechless, left me breathless and made my heart skip a beat. 

And Mary. OMG! High five Nicola Rendell. You wrote one amazing, sassy heroine that I would LOVE to be besties with. 

From beginning to end Hail Mary oozed beauty and passion. Five stars just doesn’t cut it.. this was the touchdown of all touchdowns!!

A funny, naughty, dirty *standalone* sports romance…

At a boxing gym in Chicago, Mary Monahan accidentally knocks out the most handsome man she’s ever met. After she wakes him up with a few slaps and some smelling salts, the very first thing he does is ask her out for ribs and beer. His name is Jimmy. He looks like a Gillette model. And he’s just too hunky to resist.

Jimmy “The Falcon” Falconi is mystified that Mary has absolutely no idea who he is. Mystified and refreshed. He is, after all, not your everyday NFL quarterback. He shops at Costco, has a soft spot for Pinterest, and is in the midst of an epic losing streak.

Jimmy falls for Mary fast and hard, the way he does everything—balls out and like it’s fourth and long. And he realizes he’s finally met his match. That stamina he’s so proud of? Doesn’t stand a chance against her Kegels.

But what they don’t know is she’s also his new physical therapist, recently hired by the Bears to work on his rotator cuff…and groin injury. If she can’t help him, he’ll be traded faster than they can say “offensive penetration.”

In spite of the thousands of internet memes featuring Jimmy’s face with captions like: “HEY GIRL, WANT TO TOUCH MY BALLS?” Mary finds herself falling for him and his unrelenting desire to make her his.

Until a toddler shows up at Jimmy’s door.

And throws their lives into total chaos.

To the reader: Sweet. Safe. HEA. This is a comedy that gets very dirty, so be advised. Other tasters’ notes: Hints of honey and champagne. And a feisty little dog named Frankie Knuckles.
