Review – Sex, Not Love by Vi Keeland 

Sex, Not Love by Vi Keeland 

Vi Keeland NEVER disappoints. EVER. Everything she writes is pure gold. Everything she writes is incredible. Sex, Not Love was just the perfect romance. I devoured this book whole in a matter of hours, I couldn’t put it down. There was nothing about this book that I did not like, nothing I would ever think needed to change. It’s PERFECT.

Vi  is a go to author for me. She’s the author who’s books I read when I want a solid contemporary romance that brings the heat, the feels and is as sexy as it is sweet. Sex, Not Love, fitted that to a t. From start to finish we are delivered magic in the form of Hunter who’s as delicious as he is dirty, sexy as he is sweet. I felt RUINED by this man. His cocky arrogance was HOT! And mannn did I swoon? *nods enthusiastically*. I swooned harrrrrrd! Nat was also a brilliant, captivating heroine. So easy to connect with and understand. She was written with flair and sass and her vulnerability was clear to see but I saw her as a character I would love to be friends with. She was just FANTASTIC. 

Together Hunter and Nat are explosive. Their chemistry all consuming. I loved the sizzle and burn of their build up and everything inbetween. Everything about them together just worked. Vi also worked in the perfect amount of emotion and feeling that 100% tugged on my heart strings. Together the emotions and the sexiness balanced flawlessly. 

If you’re looking for a read that will make you smile, swoon and get a little hot under the collar, a read that makes you feel then this book is the one you need! Vi Keeland has kicked off 2018 in tremendous fashion!! And as always I can’t wait to see what she does next!


From #1 New York Times Bestseller Vi Keeland, comes a new, sexy standalone novel.

My relationship with Hunter Delucia started backwards.

We met at a wedding—him sitting on the groom’s side, me sitting on the bride’s. Stealing glances at each other throughout the night, there was no denying an intense, mutual attraction.

I caught the bouquet; he caught the garter. Hunter held me tightly while we danced and suggested we explore the chemistry sparking between us. His blunt, dirty mouth should’ve turned me off. But for some crazy reason, it had the opposite effect on me.

We ended up back in my hotel room. The next morning, I headed home to New York leaving him behind in California with the wrong number.

I thought about him often, but after my last relationship, I’d sworn off of charming, cocky, gorgeous-as-sin men. A year later, Hunter and I met again at the birth of our friends’ baby. Our attraction hadn’t dulled one bit. After a whirlwind trip, he demanded a real phone number this time. So I left him with my mother’s—she could scare away any man with her talks of babies and marriage—and flew back home.

I’d thought it was funny, until the following week when he rang the bell at Mom’s house for Sunday night dinner. The crazy, gorgeous man had won over my mother and taken an eight-week assignment in my city. He proposed we spend that time screwing each other out of our systems.

Eight weeks of mind-blowing sex with no strings attached? What did I have to lose?

Nothing, I thought.
It’s just sex, not love.
But you know what they say about the best laid plans…

Review – Sky’s The Limit by Elle Aycart



5 out of 5 stars

 Well this was certainly not a book I ever pictured myself reading but was recommended, so I took a chance. Boy was I in for a roller coaster ride. There is comedy around every corner just for the very fact of the  town that Sky has been stranded in, doomsday preppers. Im talking bat-$hit crazy lunacy from some of these characters. You couldn’t help but laugh at the antics and the whole situation Sky has found herself in. 


Sky is a fashionista who believes she is on her way to Paris, France for a job teaching English  while she pursues her fashion career. Cue hilarity. Her sister booked this whole trip  for her,  and when Sky finds out she is indeed not going to Paris, France but Paris, Minnesota things get crazy fast. Her mini car breaks down in a snowstorm. She has no signal on her cell, and is definitely not dressed for these temperatures. Lucky for her Logan comes along and saves her, but now the fun begins. 


When some of the residents find out Logan brought who they are referring to as patient zero into their town, they lose their minds. They demand quarantine and it doesn’t help that Sky winds up with the flu. Her and Logan get stuck  together and eventually sparks start to fly and not just in the fireplace. Great story. I would definitely recommend it. 




 Tired of waiting for her big break in the fashion industry, Sky Gonzalez, eternal part-time student and overworked retail drone, quits her job, sublets her New York apartment, and embarks on a semester abroad study program in Paris. Paris! Time to throw caution to the winds and jump-start her dreams. What’s the worst that could happen? 


How about getting sent to the wrong Paris? As in Paris-frigging-Minnesota?

Bye-bye career dreams. Bye-bye glamour and haute couture. Hello flannel shirts, mind-numbing cold, zero bars on the cell phone, and socially challenged mountain men with tons of unruly facial hair.

So yeah, let the truck barreling her way hit her, please. Less painful.


Logan should have dodged the little lost waif and kept on driving. Who in their right mind walked in the middle of the road, dressed in white from head to high heels, during a snowstorm? Clueless city girls, that’s who. Sky is all that Logan has gladly left behind: stylish, cosmopolitan, and a massive pain in the butt. He wouldn’t trade a single day in his quirky little corner of the woods for all the high-maintenance beauties the city can offer.

Too bad this beauty has been deemed a health hazard and quarantined in his house. Damn his doomsday-prepper neighbors and their paranoid emergency protocols. Now  he has to keep Sky in and the pandemic squad out until the roads are clear. The question is, will that happen before or after Sky realizes she’s under house arrest?

Ah, the best-laid plans…



 

 Logan addressed the pandemic squad up on the platform. “Sorry to break it to you. This is a free country. You can’t go quarantining people at will.”

“Wrong. Exactly because this is a free country, we can.”
There were some mumbles of agreement from the crowd, “That’s right” and “You got it” and “Try to stop us.”
“We live in a democracy. Let’s take a vote,” Carol suggested. “All in favor of quarantining Patient Zero, please raise your hands.”
Everyone, including a smirking Ty, raised their hands.
“Oh, come on,” Logan grumbled. “Really? You serious?”
“Motion accepted,” Carol said, wrestling the gavel from the mayor and banging it on the podium. “Besides, Patient Zero doesn’t have to know she’s been quarantined. Just keep her indoors by any means necessary until she gets better.”
“Or she kicks the bucket,” somebody chimed in.
Nuts. The whole bunch of them. Down to the very last one.
“She’s not Patient Zero, people. Her name is Sky and she’s got the flu, damn it. Not Ebola. Just a common, garden-variety flu.”
“By our calculations, Patient Zero has been here almost twenty-four hours. We’re late on containment,” Carol said.
Logan shook his head in dismay. Man, like talking to a wall.
“You had her hidden away for a whole day?” Ty asked impishly.
“She was just sleeping on my sofa.” Logan realized his mistake right away and turned to Carol and the rest. “You are not burning my sofa. Are we clear?”
Whether it was clear or not, Logan didn’t know, because Carol ignored his words. “And we’ll be monitoring you,” she added while the rest nodded. “At the slightest indication you’re sick—”
“Yeah, yeah, you’ll quarantine me too, and if I don’t get better fast enough, you’ll shoot me and cremate my remains.” Along with the damn couch, of course.
Carol rolled her eyes. “Don’t be silly.”
“Yeah, don’t be silly,” someone interjected. “We’ll autopsy you before that. Dissect you into tiny pieces.”
Jesus fucking Christ. Why couldn’t his neighbors have been the gearheads prepping for solar flares that would fry the grid? More kumbaya. Less ready to dissect.
“This is all your fault, Megan,” he said to his sister, who was sitting two rows behind him. “Couldn’t you have moved somewhere else? A normal fucking place?”
She just laughed. “You heard the lady. Keep Patient Zero indoors—by any means necessary.”
“Ha. Ha.”
“What? Skills too rusty to keep a woman indoors?” she asked.
“I can help,” Ty added. “Is she pretty?”
Gorgeous, actually. Big, dark eyes. Olive-colored skin. Delicate features. But that was beside the point too.
“Fuck off, both of you,” Logan muttered. Raising his voice, he addressed the crowd again. “You’re certifiable. All of you.”
“I totally agree,” Carol said. “We give you far too much leeway. Look at how flexible we’ve been about your toxic contaminants.”

Review – Under The Lights by Tia Louise 

5 out of 5 stars 

  Tia Louise strikes again. That woman needs a fire extinguisher around when she’s writing. She has the heat packed in surrounding you with hot and sexy words. Tia’s books definitely never lack for heat, but this book!! This book is so much more than off the charts heat.


Bonechilling, dangerous, angst all packed into a powerful book that you will not be capable of putting down until THE END! Then, you’ll be dying for more. You’ll be chomping at the bit for more. I feel for all the messages Tia will be bombarded with asking for more. Hot dang woman. You’re a rockstar!!


 “All the sin, heat, and dirty underbelly that comes with it. I’m dying to read Under the Stars!” –Nora Flite, USA Today bestselling author

Under the Lights, book one in the thrilling, white-hot second-chance Bright Lights Duet from USA Today bestselling author Tia Louise is available NOW!

Under The Lights

Heroes don’t last long around here…

Fall in love with the sexiest girl in New Orleans?

Check.

Prepare to die for her?

Double-check.

Larissa is the most beautiful woman I’ve ever seen.

She’s the rising star of the Pussycat Angels, the hottest burlesque show in the French Quarter.

I’ll never forget the first time I saw her.

The curve of her breast outlined by sparkling rhinestones.

Slim hips wrapped in black fishnets.

Long, dark hair…

She’s the Dark Angel who stole my heart.

Her body is intoxicating, our love overwhelming.

Cat eyes and blood red lips.

Sizzling fingers on white-hot skin.

I couldn’t keep my hands off her…

But her fame had a dark side,

A sinister shadow lurking under the lights.

I would do anything to save her…

He would do anything to see me dead.

“You’re so good.” Her voice is soft, and she traces her finger along the bandage before lifting her blue eyes to meet mine. “Thank you for buying me lunch. For saving me…”

Without warning, she steps forward and wraps her arms around my waist, pressing her face against my chest, and I don’t hold back. She fits perfectly in my arms, and I inhale the sweet scent of her hair just before I press my lips to the top of her head.

Her voice is muffled against my shirt. “It feels so safe here.”

“Lara,” I whisper in her hair. “I want to keep you safe.”

She pulls back, and I loosen my hold. But she doesn’t leave. She puts her hand against my cheek, lifting her chin as she rises higher on her toes. Hell if I make her work for it.

Leaning forward, I capture her lips. They part, and our tongues meet, curling together as I hug her closer to me. She exhales a little noise, and her fingers thread in the sides of my hair. I trace a line with my lips to her ear.

“I want you so much,” I whisper.

She turns, searching for my mouth, and I kiss her. She fists my shirt in her hands, pulling it up and placing her palm against my bare stomach. I groan deeply, and my hands slide under her ass. I lift her against my chest, and her legs go around my waist. Our kisses are wildfire, fast-moving, lips pulling, hungry for something more. Something just within reach.

She moving subtly against my waist, and the blood rushes downward. I’m hard and she’s riding me, stroking my erection with her crotch.

“Lara,” I groan.

Her lips still, and she holds my cheeks, looking into my eyes. “That night on the catwalk… The way you looked at me…”

My brow collapses at the memory. “You’re the most beautiful thing I’ve ever seen.”

“I only want you to see me.”

Her lips are pink and swollen from my kisses. I lean forward and kiss her again, tasting her like she’s water in the desert. She exhales a little noise, and it’s a charge straight to my cock.

I love her lips. I love her mouth. I want more. I want all of her.

“Does your waist hurt?”

She leans forward, running her nose along my jaw. “Nothing hurts. Everything is amazing.”

Review – Buried Alive by Stacey Marie Brown

Buried-Alive SMASHWORDS

Buried Alive by Stacey Marie Brown

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

If there is one constant in reading for me it’s the giddy delight I get when meeting a new or new-to-me author’s words. That rush during that initial read is off-the-charts incredible! I just popped my Stacey Marie Brown book cherry with BURIED ALIVE that was more of an explosion because HOLY HEADY, HOT, and HEART-HITTING READ!!! From the very first page, Buried Alive was my FIX and I could not get enough!!! Life was on hold as I. Could. Not. Put. This. Book. Down!

A broken hero and heroine drawn are together.

Broken sees broken.

His eyes drifted over my head, a scary blankness in his eyes. I recognized that expression. It was one I saw in the mirror every day. Vacant. Numb.

Darkness sees darkness.

”We both live in the darkness.”

Like sees like.

The longer I was around her, the lighter I became.

Rhys and Hannah are HERO AND HEROINE PERFECTION!!! Rhys is one hot, heartfelt, intense, dark, and super star snowboarder—the ULTIMATE ALPHA! Hannah is stunning and strong—a pillar of strength! Hannah and Rhys’ humorous and heated banter was INTOXICATING!!! I loved these kindred spirits so much who MELTED ME with their darkness mixed with light! These two imperfectly perfect and shattered souls made each other whole.

All I could do was hold on as he consumed me. Breathing me in whole.

Like a shard of glass, Buried Alive glitters and shines, then cuts deep. Humming with adrenaline-inducing action and paralyzing with emotional intensity, this story of two broken souls fused by fate will sear itself into your memory long after the last page. This story SLAYS demons and souls. This story is healing after heartbreak. This story is life and living. This story is ALL THE FEELS!!! THIS STORY IS EVERYTHING!!!

He was here to destroy me.

Amusing. Arousing. Adrenaline-filled. Addicting. Awe-inspiring. An electrifying and emotionally-rich roller coaster of a sports romance, Buried Alive is an ADRENALINE RUSH OF FEELS until the end!!! It twists and turns like pro snowboarder, Rhys, conquering the slopes. My feels were free-falling through this story. I felt every word I read in Buried Alive. This romance is HARD-FOUGHT LOVE at its best!!! Buried Alive is still BEGUILING ME!!! This heart-pounding and heartwarming romance still holds my heart.

”You made me feel alive again.”

🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟 ’buried itself into my heart’ stars

Nine years after a tragic accident, Hannah “Brennley” Evans has returned home to the snowy mountains of Whistler, Canada. This is the very place that destroyed her, where her whole world ended, and the reason she now goes by Hannah Jennings.

The moment Hannah walks into his room, he knows something is different about her. Drawn to her, he can’t seem to stay away from the mysterious, guarded girl. They are two heartbroken souls who both understand the darkness.

Little does he know she lives in lies and carries secrets that will bring his universe to its knees and secrets that will bury them both alive.

Review – Fake Wife by Stacey Lynn 


 5 out of 5 stars

 What  a whirlwind adventure this book was. Both of the main characters had been facing hardship of a different kind, but that all changes the night Teagan rear ends Portland’s most eligible bachelor.  Neither knows at the time, but both of their lives are  about drastically change. 


Teagan gets laid off only to come home and did her boyfriend of 7 years banging a blonde in her own bed. She has nothing. She is now stuck in a car with all of her belongings, not knowing what to do next. Then fate answers for her when she rear ends Corbin.  Gee, what else could possibly go wrong. Or not??? 


Corbin has just found out that the land he wanted of his  grandmothers  has stipulations that he never saw coming. He must be married for 2 years before the property is his free and clear. Fate just so happens to drop Teagan in his life  by way of fender bender!  Lol. 


He thinks he has it all figured out. Get married as soon as possible  so he can get the divorce done and over, but fate may have other plans for the two who don’t trust so easily. What a great read. I highly recommend it. 


 Fake Wife by Stacey Lynn

Publication Date: January 9th, 2018
Genre: Contemporary Romance

This marriage is strictly business . . . until the temptation gets way too real.

 

Sterling: I loved my grandma, but I don’t need her money. All I care about is keeping the house—the only place that’s ever felt like home. That, and screwing over my dad, who wants to turn the property into a mall. There’s only one catch: To receive my inheritance, I have to get married within six months. Me, the guy who’s never dated a girl for more than six minutes. Now I need to find a woman I can trust. So when I’m rear-ended by a Prius, I figure it’s a sign that I’m supposed to meet gorgeous, down-to-earth Teagan Monroe.

 

Teagan: First I lose my job. Then I come home and find out—in the most graphic way possible . . . yeah, that way—that my boyfriend is a cheating jerk. And then I speed off and nearly kill Portland’s sexiest bachelor. Sterling Lane should be pissed. Instead, he offers me more money than I’ve ever seen in my life to marry him and live together in a mansion for two years. No sex. No feelings. Just cash—enough to make all my dreams come true. Then we go and break all our rules . . . and I realize I’m falling in love with my fake fiancé.

  Prologue

Teagan

I stare at the man, the absolutely beautiful man, across the table from me, completely disbelieving what he’s just said.

I had to have misheard.

He couldn’t have just offered me what I think he did.

Perhaps when I slammed into the back of his Mercedes forty-five minutes ago I gave him a concussion. Maybe the accident gave me a concussion.

“Are you serious?” Propping my elbows on the table, I lean forward to hear him better. “You can’t be. We should get you to the hospital. I think when I rear-ended you it gave you a concussion. Are you sure you didn’t hit your head?”

Corbin Lane relaxes against his chair at our table at Le Chat Noir. His golden-brown hair shines, a bit wavy, long on top but still short enough not to cross the line from professional to hipster. His cornflower-blue eyes haven’t veered from my direction for the last hour.

A typical man would have yelled at me, threatened me with a lawsuit, demanded my insurance information, and returned to his day, doing whatever playboy billionaires do.

Not this guy. He asked for my insurance information, and when he saw the tears streaming down my cheeks, the clothes and boxes strewn all over my cramped backseat, he asked me if I was okay. Then he escorted me to this nearby restaurant, asked me a million questions, and then this . . .

This . . . proposition, as he called it.

“I’m not joking. I think this solves both of our problems.”

I drink the rest of my wine and set the glass aside. The alcohol has made me tipsy.

Corbin smiles again. I’ve seen that smile plastered on the gossip pages and on the news for the last five years, ever since I moved to Portland. So sexy he makes girls stupid, he’s an heir to the Lane Holdings fortune, a great-grandson of one of the Oregon Gold Rush families, and son of the CEO of Lane Holdings. When his father retires, Corbin is poised to run the multibillion-dollar company.

“I think you’re going to have to explain it to me again.”

“It’s simple, really. You need a place to live and I’m offering you one. You need time to find a new job, and I’m providing financially for you to do that. We can iron out the details later, but this needs to last at least two years.”

Two years. Two years of my life spent in close proximity to one of Time magazine’s top-ten sexiest and wealthiest bachelors in the world. Three years in a row.

Yeah, I’m a fangirl.

Shit.

Two more years of life wasted.

Although the money he’s offering will definitely help me set up my dream when it’s over.

“Listen, Corbin—”

“Consider it. Take all the time you need.”

“I’m still not sure I understand what you get out of it.”

Beautiful, luscious lips tip into a full-blown smile and I’m almost blinded by the brightness of his teeth. “Me? I get a wife.”

TheWrightSecret BN Kobo

The Wright Secret by K.A. Linde
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Bossy girls are strong. Bossy girls take over the world. Bossy is a compliment. Don’t let anyone tell you different.

K.A. Linde continues to engulf e-readers in flames while making hearts jump with joy in the masterful Wright series. THE WRIGHT SECRET is as strong and sassy as it is sexy and sweet. It’s HEART meets HEAT. It’s pure ANGST ADDICTION!!! I felt the ANGST bleed through me, and it was one HEADY HIGH!!! I was BREATHLESS. This book BUZZES with a thrill felt everywhere!

We were standing here, on the precipice. All we had to do was lean, and we’d free fall right off the cliff.

I want to be Morgan when I grow up. I loved Morgan and saw bits of myself in her: the sass, the strength, the sarcasm, and the vulnerability. She is a stunning, sassy, smart and sarcastic spitfire and I ADORED her. Morgan is just perfect. Patrick, her brother’s best friend and childhood crush, was perfect for her. He is one hot hero with a huge heart. K. A. Linde writes characters you can’t help but wholeheartedly love.

”I see you. All of you.”

The Wright Secret is SIMPLY DELICIOUS, a SLOW BURN, a MELT-WORTHY LOVE STORY!!! A friends-to-lovers tale that’s sassy, smoldering, tender, twisty, and full of sexual tension, The Wright Secret has all the elements of a PERFECT ROMANCE. This Wright is UNEQUIVOCALLY RIGHT.

”You’re not my dirty little secret.”

synopsis.jpg

new brother’s-best-friend stand alone romance by USA Today bestselling author K.A. Linde…

I was just his best friend’s little sister.

But he was always more than that to me.

After twelve years of pining over Patrick’s easy smile, baby blues, and captivating charm, I decide to take matters into my own hands—and completely blow my chance.

Who knew a self-proclaimed manwhore would decide to be a gentleman the first time I’m naked in his bed? Definitely, not me. But when I land there again, neither of us has any intention of stopping.

There’s only one problem: nobody can know. Especially not my three older brothers. If they found out, all hell would break loose.

So I’m willing to keep our secret. Because I want him Wright here, right now.

Review – Most Likely to Score by Lauren Blakely

Most Likely To Score by Lauren Blakely

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I read the most ROMANTIC of sports romances!!! I can’t stop SWOONING over this story that is just so SWEET-SIGHING GOOD!!! MOST LIKELY TO SCORE… just WOW!!! This book blinded me a bit as I didn’t expect to love it so hard. Best. Blindside. Ever!!!

Not even ten percent in and I wanted this hero for myself. Hot. Humorous. Blue eyes. Tall. Big in the right places. Playful. Passionate. Sexy as sin. Football player. I’m a sucker for a hot jock with a huge heart. Jones is HERO PERFECTION!!! Can you say hall pass?!?

”You didn’t look at me and all I want to do is look at you.”

The heroine is incredibly noteworthy too! Jillian is as brainy as she is beautiful. A bold woman who goes after what and who she wants, I admired her so much! She is sweet, sexy, and sassy too and I would so become her bestie.

I’m a shooting star. I’m lit up. My body is full of electrons and neurons, pulsing and glowing bright.

This build-up in this book between the heartfelt hero and heroine made me BREATHLESS at times. Jones and Jillian were MAGICAL together!!! I just LOVED the friends/worker to lovers theme executed to perfect in Most Likely to Score.

”What would you do if I was yours?”

“Let me show you.”

Witty writing. Enticing innuendos. Sexual tension. Swoon. Humor. Heat. Hot hero. Heart … all the heart. Most Likely to Score is ALL THAT and MORE. Just YES!!!

This is fire and heat, and I need more of the blaze.

I’m so IN LOVE with this romance! This sports story SEDUCED me with smolder and sweetness along with a STRONG HEROINE and THE ULTIMATE HERO who is as tender as he is tough. Most Likely to Score made me MELT so much! This story SLAYS ROMANCE!

I don’t want to lose her. And I don’t even have her.

Lauren Blakely never disappoints! Most Likely to Score scores all the touchdowns! I’m awarding Lauren Blakely the game ball as this football romance is so Super Bowl worthy. Most Likely to Score is Lauren Blakey’s BEST BOOK to date!!!

Maybe there are rules worth bending.

It seemed like a good idea at the time…

As the team’s publicist, I need a football player to be the face of our charity calendar, and Jones Beckett needs a savvy PR woman to manage his new sponsorship deal.
A simple give and take, and I’m sure I’ll have no problem following my iron-clad rule — don’t date a player. And never ever fall for one. No matter how charming, big-hearted and devilishly clever the man is.

But you know what they say about best laid plans…

Once I start spending my off-season days and nights with Jones, I’m following a brand new playbook, one that has me falling hard for the incorrigible flirt — heart, body and mind.

That’s against the rules, and now what seemed like a bright idea has turned into a dangerously forbidden one.

***

It was supposed to be an I-scratch-her-back-she-scratched-mine kind of arrangement. And man, did Jillian ever drag her nails down my back on one hell of a hot night. Okay fine, it was several hot nights on the road.

Now we’re back in town and it’s time to set the play clock back to when we were simply player and publicist. Given the way the last few years have gone, I can’t risk this deal. Trouble is, I want more than than just another night with her.

What’s a guy to do when he’s always been most likely to score, but the woman he’s falling for is way off limits?

~JONES~

“Love it,” Christine says emphatically, her lips and that metal hoop in the bottom one the only parts of her face visible since the lens covers the rest. “How about a little tough-guy look now?”

Because tough guys hold footballs in front of their junk.

“This is my best badass pose,” I say, narrowing my eyes and staring at the camera like I’d stare at the secondary of the Miami Mavericks.

“Oh yes, more of that, right, Jillian?” Christine shouts to the other person here in the studio with us.

That person is Jillian, and she hasn’t looked my way since I strolled in here and dropped my drawers. Damn shame.

From her spot leaning against the far wall, the team publicist answers in a crisp, professional tone I know well. “Exactly. We love his tough-guy face.”

She doesn’t even look up from her phone.

I keep working it for Christine, doing my best to make sure my blue eyes will melt whoever is looking at the picture when the magazine hits newsstands and Internet browsers in another few weeks.

It’s an evergreen kind of issue, since the body edition is one of the most popular. Gee, I wonder why. I’ve no doubt this shot of me with a football for my skivvies will quickly surpass the previous most-searched-for image of yours truly—the game-winning catch I made in the end zone in the Super Bowl two years ago.

But, to be fair, there’s another shot of me that’s searched for maybe a tiny bit more. I like to pretend that shot doesn’t exist.

“The camera loves you,” Christine croons as the snap, snap, snap of the lens keeps the rhythm.

“The feeling is entirely mutual,” I say, pursing my lips in an over-the-top kiss.

Christine laughs. “You are my favorite ham in all of sports, Jones. That’ll be a perfect outtake for our website.”

“That’s a brilliant idea,” Jillian chimes in. “Make sure to send me a copy for social, please.”

“Absolutely,” Christine answers.

I sneak a peek at the dark-haired woman by the wall, that silky curtain of sleekness framing her face as she smiles a bright, buoyant, outgoing grin at the photographer then drops her head back down.

Damn.

Jillian Moore is one tough nut to crack.

I’m nearly naked in front of her, and she hasn’t once looked my way.

As the woman behind the lens shoots another photo with my favorite ball covering my favorite balls, Jillian doesn’t even spare another glance.

I’m going to need a whole new playbook to get this woman’s attention.

Review – No Fear by Nora Phoenix 



5 out of 5 stars 

 Woah!  Talk about an action packed book!  Nora really pulled you into the story just dying to see what  would happen  next. I’ve absolutely loves this series from book 1and am still in awe that this is a new author. Her writis impeccable and her  style is so unique and unconventional. You can’t help but love it. Before I go any farther, I do need to tell you this is not a standalone. You must read the first 2 books first. They’re totally worth it. Trust me. 


This book’s major focus was on the budding relationship between Blake and Aaron. These two had a lot of hurdles to overcome, but they definitely belong together. They are threatened apart by the skepticism of Blake’s brothers, which adds a twist to the plot. 


We also start feeling the heat from the Fitzpatricks. It causes mass chaos for everyone involved and if the cards aren’t played perfectly, they may devastatingly lose this hand. I can’t wait for it all to be tied  together in book 4.



 No Fear

No Shame Series Book 3

Nora Phoenix

Release date: December 27, 2017

Cover Design: Sloan Johnson/Sloan J Design

BLURB

Aaron is drowning. After coming out as gay, he lost his parents’ approval, his job, and his sense of identity. He feels like a freak who doesn’t fit in anywhere. His last hope was his brother Josh, but Josh can’t seem to forgive him for how Aaron treated him when they were teens. Not that Aaron can blame him, because he did treat Josh like crap.

All Aaron wants is for someone to accept him, guide him, because he doesn’t have a clue. When sexy jiujitsu teacher Blake takes him in and starts mentoring him, Aaron has hope for the first time, even though he can’t understand what Blake sees in him.

Blake doesn’t do relationships. At all. He’s more than willing to help Aaron find solid ground under his feet, but that’s it. Until insecure, vulnerable, and surprisingly sexy Aaron gets under his skin, triggering all kinds of protective instincts that make Blake long for more. He wants to take care of Aaron, give him what he needs, but how can he convince Aaron of that?

When Josh’s friend-with-benefits Indy’s past finally catches up with him, it endangers them all—and leads to heartbreaking decisions for everyone involved.

No Fear is a steamy M/M romance that ends with a HFN for Aaron and Blake, but has a continuing storyline as well. It’s the third book in the No Shame Series, and is not a stand alone novel, so make sure to read the first book (No Filter) and the second book (No Limits) first. It contains hot sex, a little kink, more hot sex, very mild puppy play, and a beautiful friendship-with-benefits that transcends labels. Also: trigger warning for mentions of sexual abuse.

“You can start with plain vanilla sex, work your way up to the kinky stuff,” Blake said with a laugh.

“You make it sound boring,” Aaron complained.

Blake sobered. “No, and I’m sorry for teasing you a bit. You set the pace, Aaron. If you’re not ready for sex, you wait. If you are, you find someone who will respect you enough to take it slow, okay?”

Aaron reached out for his hand and held it tight. “Will you do it?” he asked.

Blake’s heart jumped in his chest. Was Aaron asking what he thought he was? “What do you mean?” He needed to be certain.

“I want you to be my first.”

He looked so cute and pretty and sexy, still in that gorgeous top and the tight jeans. But his words were cute and pretty, too, like a schoolgirl on prom night. Blake needed to manage expectations. “Aaron, I don’t do relationships. I like you, I really do, but don’t read more into this. I don’t date or hold hands or do romantic dinners.”

“That’s okay. I don’t need that. What I need is a safe place to gain some experience. You said it yourself, I need someone who respects me enough to take it slow. I want my first time to be good. I trust you. Please, Blake?”

Blake couldn’t help himself. He pulled Aaron close and brought their mouths together. At first, Aaron kept his mouth closed. Blake increased the pressure, licked his lips and pushed with his tongue until Aaron let him in. He angled his head a bit more, dove in deep. Aaron’s movements were slow, insecure, but he wound his arms around Blake’s neck and held on.

His mouth was sweet, hot. Blake tasted the peppermint Aaron so often suckled on, those white-and-red-striped ones. He teased Aaron’s tongue with his, until it responded, until they were doing a slick dance of push and pull. He was a fast learner, copying Blake’s moves at first, then coming up with a few of his own.

He was everything Blake usually avoided. Inexperienced, vulnerable, insecure. Yet kissing him did something to Blake’s body that he didn’t recognize. It triggered a hunger in him, a fierce need to possess, to own.

His hands lowered till they reached Aaron’s ass. He put one hand on each butt cheek, pulled Aaron close to him and ground his hips into him. The kid was hard again, and he himself had barely been soft since they had gotten into the dressing room. What was Aaron doing to him?

He broke off the kiss, swore softly at the sight of Aaron’s dazed look, his swollen lips. Fuck, Blake didn’t want to stop, not even close. He kissed him once more, the gentlest of kisses. “Not here. Not now.”

Aaron blinked. “But you’ll do it?”

“Tomorrow. I want you to have time to think about this, sleep on it. If tomorrow in the cold light of day you decide this is what you want, I’m your man.”

When she was a little tot, Nora’s mom got a library subscription for her. That, as they say, was that, and a lifelong love for books was born. Nora never stopped reading and doesn’t exaggerate when she says she devours books, rather than plain reads them. She started writing stories as soon as she could hold a pen, and wrote her first full book as a teen (on a typewriter!). It took her waaaay too long to follow her dream to become a romance author.

Nora writes M/M romance, because hello, sexy boys, and likes her men flawed, strong, and a tad broken. She appreciates a little kink, but insists on a happy ever after.

Review – Awaken Me by Alex Grayson 



5 out of 5 stars

 This series has been one of the best ever, and I’m so sad to see it go. We all knew leading up through the previous 3 books, that this book was going to be the hardest. I was so right. I suggest tissues and to be ready for an ugly cry. 
Alex quickly became a go to author to me, and after this series, I will never miss a book of hers again. We got to see the pain and torment going through Nick throughout the whole series. He was headed down a oath of destruction, so lost. I felt for him and knew his book would be the death of me. 
Chris, oh poor Chris. Bless her heart. She loved that man so much but you can only be pushed so far. No matter what, she was always there for him. 
I really won’t spoil the story for anyone because this was in my opinion, the most anticipated book of the series. Well done Alex. Well freaking done! 


 The highly anticipated conclusion of The Jaded Series, featuring the beloved Nick and the relentless Chris. Be prepared to experience an emotional roller-coaster of a life time!


What do you do when you lose the single most important thing in your life? You grieve. You sink so deep in a hole, you can no longer see the top. All you see is dark. Your life becomes dull and dreary. You withdraw from your friends, lash out at the ones you’re closest to, and become so absorbed in your pain, you feel the only way out is to end it permanently. Your heart no longer pumps properly and you can never get enough air in your lungs. You drink, you neglect your health, and you rent dirty hotel rooms with the sole purpose of ending your pain in them. Guilt eats at you for not being at the one place you were needed the most. And you become angry because you were left behind.


Or at least, that’s what I did. Until she came along…


Chris, the bane of my existence. She’s always there in the background, watching me, trying to ‘be there’ for me. But I don’t want her help. I don’t need her to butt in where she’s not wanted. I just want to be left alone in my dark world. But she’s not giving up, even when I’m a bastard to her. Every time I turn around, there she is. And what’s worse, she’s starting to make me want things. Things I never thought I could have again. She’s making me forget the pain and bringing color back into my life with her fiery red hair, bright green eyes, and the silly faces she makes at herself in the mirror. But what happens if I let her in? Could I be brave enough to open myself up, knowing the possibility of having it snatched away again. Once I know the feeling of touching Chris, of having her heart and soul blend with mine, I would never survive losing that.


Can I take the chance of her being my savior, even knowing that she could also be the one that could push me other the edge of self-destruction?

Awaken Me can be read as a stand alone, but it is HIGHLY recommended to read at least the first in the series, Shatter Me. Through Shatter Me, you will understand the emotional ties between Nick and Chris and why Nick is the way he is. Without reading Shatter Me, Nick’s behavior may seem too harsh for some readers. This is not a light read. Deals with mental abuse through extreme grief. Intended for readers 18+.



  The darkness of grief has consumed him. Can he trust anyone to help him heal?

Awaken Me, book four in The Jaded Series by Alex Grayson, is now #FREE in KindleUnlimited!!!

After spending several years as a devoted reader and blogger, Alex decided to write and independently publish her first novel in 2014 (an endeavor that took a little longer than expected). The rest, as they say, is history.


Originally a southern girl, Alex now lives in Ohio with her husband, two children, two cats and dog. She loves the color blue, homemade lasagna, casually browsing real estate, and interacting with her readers. Visit her website, www.alexgraysonbooks.com, or find her on social media!

Review – Three Blind Dates by Meghan Quinn

Three Blind Dates by Meghan Quinn

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

”The Suit, The Rebel, and The Jock. If you had to choose, who would you choose?”

With a sappy smile still on my face, I just floated to Cloud Nine. I’m still SWOONING from Meghan Quinn’s Three Blind Dates and can’t stop!!! This is one of the most romantic of romances. I was UTTERLY ENAMORED!!!

26167670_10210596053714350_4682928868933126697_n

 

I ADORED the beautiful, bold, smart, and sassy Noely along with her three hot and heart-worthy heroes. These hot and dreamy dates … just YES!!! The playful banter and texts were entertaining—an intimate and insightful peek into the heroes’ heads. The blind dates were epic where each hero brought a different type of A-game, which made choosing the possible ‘one and only’ a challenging task.

The strong and powerful yet kind and funny man standing next to me is holding my hand without a second thought, as if he’s been meant to hold my hand his entire life.

HoldHand_TBD

It was so fun to watch the heroine and main hero stumble their way through to their feelings. Meghan Quinn’s writing is so ENGAGING that you’ll feel like a second heroine in this romance. I was so IMMERSED in this story that I took these three blind dates too. I wanted to be Noely badly! I was WOOED right along with the heroine.

”Tell me you don’t want this, Noely. Tell me you want me to stop.”

From its playful banter to quirky character names to clever and over-the-top descriptions and moments, Three Blind Dates shows how much Meghan Quinn is a creative genius and mastermind of humor. As snort-laughing humorous as Megan Quinn words are in Three Blind Dates, they are balanced with the perfect blend of sizzle and swoon. As I’ve said after meeting this author’s Stroked series: Meghan Quinn creates the perfect romance harmony of heat, humor, and heart—all the elements to send you straight to BOOK BLISS.

What is love without risk?

Three PHENOMENAL blind dates are wrapped into a telling tale that keeps you ENTERTAINED and ENCHANTED the whole time reading. I was smiling, swooning, and snort-laughing the whole way through! Three Blind Dates is FRESH, FUN, and FULL of FEELS!!! This story was MY GUILTY PLEASURE and I couldn’t turn the pages fast enough!

He’s my very own love story.

“Good Morning Malibu, it’s another beautiful day on the west coast! I’m Noely Clark, your host: and I’m in the market for love…”

When the publicity team of the new local restaurant, Going in Blind, began their search for a hot, local celebrity to promote the wildly popular eatery, they couldn’t have found a better person than me.

Outgoing? Check.
Single? Check.
Open to finding love? Check.

I signed up immediately.

A hopeless romantic with an exceedingly demanding schedule, I’ve found it impossible to find the man of my dreams—so Going in Blind seems too good to be true! That’s until they start setting me up on dates—three very different, very attractive, very distinct blind dates—and only one thing is for certain . . .

I’m in big trouble.

Good Morning Malibu,
I’m Noely Clark, and I have a choice to make.
The question is who will I choose; the suit, the rebel, or the jock?

FB_IMG_1494244623114

I didn’t realize how close I was to the restaurant because I’m ten minutes early. Does that make me seem desperate? No, I chastise myself. It shows that I respect the other person’s time . . . right?

God, dating is the worst. There are so many unspoken rules you have to follow to not look desperate, or to not look like a psycho, or a creep, or horny, or—

“Can I help you, miss?”

Straightening up, I turn toward the hostess stand, which is a beautifully carved piece of wood. Standing behind it is an exotic, tall woman with long black hair, stunning grey eyes, and a massive engagement ring on her hand. Please tell me she got that rock from dating someone in this program.

Don’t get me wrong. It’s not that happiness for my life is dependent on getting married, but to see a success story in the flesh—particularly for me—would be encouraging.

“Hi, yes, I’m Noely Clark. I have a date at seven tonight with”—I lean forward, feeling silly and whisper—“with WindsorKnot.”

Her smile is kind and reassuring, making me feel a little calmer. “Yes, Miss Clark, I have you here for seven. You’re date hasn’t arrived yet, so can I show you to the bar for a drink while you wait?”

“That would be lovely, thank you.”

With my clutch tucked under my arm, I follow tall, dark, and beautiful to the bar where a very handsome Asian man is standing with a towel draped over his shoulder and a bright grin on his face. He’s wearing a button-up shirt with rolled sleeves, a brown vest covering his chest, which totally channels his inner Justin Timberlake.

“Danny, this is Miss Clark. She has a reservation at seven. Would you be so kind to make her whatever drink she would like?”

“Of course.” He winks at the hostess who presses her warm hand on my arm.

“Enjoy, Miss Clark. If you have any questions, please feel free to ask. My name is Veronica, this is Danny, and we will be happy to serve you in any way.” With a parting grin, she moves back to her hostess spot.

Well, she’s nice.

“Miss Clark, please take a seat. What would you like?”

My tight, formfitting red dress makes my hop onto the bar stool a difficult task, but with a pleading prayer to the dress gods and a swift jump, I situate myself, only breaking a minor sweat.

I let out a sigh of relief and place my hands on the bar in front of me, scanning the glitzy bottles of “muscle relaxant.” “Hmm . . . how about a Moscow Mule?”

“Coming right up.” He gets to work and I watch as he magically floats around the bar, pulling the ingredients. “We recently bought new copper mugs, and I’ve been dying to use them.”

“Yeah? Am I the first?”

Winking, he says, “You are.”

If I didn’t know any better, I would say Danny is a bit of a flirt. Either that or he’s super friendly. Or simply made to be a bartender.

From beneath the bar, Danny pulls out a shiny, hammered-copper mug, and I’m instantly taken by the design. So sleek, just like its surroundings. The restaurant, with its white exposed brick, natural wood features, electric colors, and stone tabletops, is sexy, yet inviting. The friendly waitstaff is an absolute bonus. Every table is cornered off in its own spot, never getting too close to the other tables around it, and the mood lighting is on point with dim Edison bulb lights hanging from the ceiling and tabletop candles. I’m feeling the mood.

Despite the welcoming atmosphere, I can’t help but feel nervous, even after my brief exchange with WindsorKnot. There’s something to say about a blind date: the anticipation, the unknown, the knowledge that you’re having dinner with someone to possibly form a romantic relationship. It’s intimidating, but exhilarating all at the same time.

Could this be the last time I ever go on a first date? Will he like me? Will he want to get to know me?

Butterflies float around in my stomach and my cheeks heat as Danny places a napkin in front of me, topped by my drink with a lime slice on the side.

“Here you go, Miss Clark. Please enjoy.”

I smile politely. “Thank you.” When I take a sip, I’m instantly assaulted by the ginger-lime combination. Perfect. “This is fantastic.”

“Good.” Danny winks again and like an old-time bartender, starts drying a tumbler with the towel hanging over his shoulder. Eyeing me for a second, he asks, “A little nervous?”

Stalk This Author

Born in New York and raised in Southern California, Meghan has grown into a sassy, peanut butter eating, blonde haired swearing, animal hoarding lady. She is known to bust out and dance if “It’s Raining Men” starts beating through the air and heaven forbid you get a margarita in her, protect your legs because they may be humped.



Once she started commuting for an hour and twenty minutes every day to work for three years, she began to have conversations play in her head, real life, deep male voices and dainty lady coos kind of conversations. Perturbed and confused, she decided to either see a therapist about the hot and steamy voices running through her head or start writing them down. She decided to go with the cheaper option and started writing… enter her first novel, Caught Looking.

Now you can find the spicy, most definitely on the border of lunacy, kind of crazy lady residing in Colorado with the love of her life and her five, furry four legged children, hiking a trail or hiding behind shelves at grocery stores, wondering what kind of lube the nervous stranger will bring home to his wife. Oh and she loves a good boob squeeze!
