Review – Relay by Layla Reyne 

4 out of 5 stars 

 I have been anticipating this book for months. It’s not everyday that you come across a swimming series and after Irish and Whiskey, I just knew we were in for a treat. I had one tiny issue with the book that explains why 4 stars instead of 5. I felt the ending to abrupt, but I know we’re getting getting another book that will provide some of the pieces I felt we missed at the end. 

It was definitely a second chance almost haters to lovers. There was alot of animosity between Alex and Dane. A showdown 10 years in the making. It made for a hell if a ride as they navigated all the battles thrown their way. I’m definitely looking forward to book 2.

 “Layla Reyne does a fantastic job portraying the pressures and delights of being an elite athlete, and how questing for the gold and going after a second chance at romance with the man you never fell out of love with are complex, emotionally intense pursuits. I was rooting for Alex and Dane from the beginning to the end, both in and out of the pool.”

Book Blurb:

Captain is not a title Alejandro “Alex” Cantu takes lightly. Elected by his teammates to helm the US Men’s Swim Team, he proudly accepts the role, despite juggling endless training, team administrative work, and helping out on the family farm. And despite his ex-lover, Dane Ellis—swimming’s biggest star—also making the Olympic Team.

Dane has been a pawn in his celebrity parents’ empire from crib to pool, flashing his camera-ready smile on demand and staying deeply in the closet. Only once did he drop the act—the summer he fell in love with Alex. Ten years later, Dane longs to cut his parents’ strings, drop his too-bright smile, and beg Alex for another chance.

Alex, though, isn’t ready to forgive and forget, and Dane is a distraction he doesn’t need on his team, until an injury forces Alex to accept Dane as his medley relay anchor. Working together, their passion reignites. When Dane’s parents threaten reprisal and Alex is accused of doping, the two must risk everything to prove Alex’s innocence, to love one another, and to win back their spots on the team, together.


 Dane’s gaze shot to Alex’s reflection in the mirror, and he dropped the razor. He was sure it clattered against the sink, but he couldn’t hear it for the blood whooshing in his ears. Blood that beelined south as his gaze made a similar journey down Alex’s body. The mesh top showed off his broad chest better than Dane had imagined, and those ratty jeans fit just shy of decent. It wasn’t like he hadn’t seen Alex shirtless and in jammers daily, but that was Alex the swimmer.

Unreachable. A safe distance away.

This was Alex the man. Standing five feet behind him.

Looking like everything Dane had ever wanted.

His gaze swept back up and met Alex’s in the mirror. He held the heated stare until it burned, then cast his eyes aside with a muttered “Fuck.”

Review – The Thing About Love by Kim Karr

The Thing About Love by Kim Karr 

“He was the Ying to my crazy Yang. He was my perfect. He was my soulmate.”

The Thing About Love is a beautiful, HOT, enemies to lovers, romance between two incredibly charismatic characters that are just MADE FOR EACH OTHER. 

Jake & Juliette have a sizzling connection. From the start these two start a fire and only burn hotter as the book progresses. Their whole story is brilliantly paced and believable. It is also emotional in some places, adding in a beautiful aspect that just makes this story what it is. 

I am forever a fan of Kim Karr. Her males are always spot on and so, so easy to fall in love with. Her females always have the perfect balance of sass and insecurity that make them real and connectable. Kim is most definitely kicking of 2018 with a great book and I urge everyone to read it!

An emotional and unforgettable new romance from New York Times bestselling author Kim Karr.

The whole stethoscope-and-white coat thing isn’t my cup of tea. 

I prefer a man with an artistic vein in his body. 9 – 5 hours. And I can definitely do without the half-lidded, sleepy bedroom eyes. (Okay, so those are kind of sexy.)

Tall, dark, and handsome doesn’t change the fact that he’s arrogant, cocky, and rude.

Not that I care, but he’s made it clear he wants nothing to do with a quirky girl like me, which is why he said no.

Turns out no isn’t an option.

I have a quickie wedding to plan, and Dr. Jake Kissinger doesn’t have a choice. He looks at our situation like he’s stuck with me, but in reality I’m stuck with him. Stuck with his pouty mouth. His long, lean body. And stuck with those loose, low riding scrub pants. (Okay, so the doctor thing is growing on me.)

When spending time together turns into more than it should, I know I’m in trouble.

He isn’t supposed to make my heart pound.

I’m not supposed to make him look twice.

And we aren’t supposed to spend the night together. (Okay, so he has more than one artistic vein in his body, and other places.)

Falling for him is definitely a mistake.

Here’s the thing…

Jake is unavailable, and I know it.

Just not in the way you might think.

I guess you can’t have your cake and eat it too.

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.

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?



“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.


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 – Sin And Saint  by JM Dabney 

4 out of 5 stars 

 This was a definitely intriguing tale of 2 brothers with their sights set on the town sheriff. The problem was the sheriff was twice their age. They would stop at nothing to make him theirs. The brothers did nothing without the other but they each had their own quirks. They also had some mad skills up their sleeves  that came in handy when their sheriff found himself in need  of rescuing. This book was definitely unique and I’d  recommend it especially if you’re into triads.





RELEASE DATE: 12.26.17

COVER DESIGN: Winterheart Design


Eric and Ellison Gant better known as Sin and Saint were opposite sides of the same coin. They epitomized the nicknames given to them by their friends in the band Executioners. One thing Sin and Saint did well was fight and being inseparable means they had a lot of disagreements, but one thing they agreed on was Sheriff Camden Pelter was theirs. The older, stoic man didn’t agree, yet they were determined to change his mind.

Camden Pelter had the daunting job of turning the Powers Sheriff Department around. The residents of the Georgia town didn’t have much faith or respect in the Deputies serving them. That’s where he came in and he was determined to do his job. That was easier said than done with two annoying brothers Sin and Saint who dogged his every step. No way in hell was he getting mixed up in the chaos that were the Gant Twins. Now if only if he could get them to listen and realize they didn’t have a chance of changing his mind.

Saint didn’t want to get off the bike. Camden smelled like leather, sweat, and spicy cologne, but it could be the man’s leather jacket that was wrapped tightly around him. He’d dreamed of being that close to Camden for almost three years since he’d seen him the first time. Camden was dressed in tactical gear. Looking badass and sexy, commanding. He’d wanted to crawl into the man’s lap and never get up.

When he’d mounted behind Camden, he’d tried to keep as much distance as possible between them, but Camden moved him closer. His brother saw something he wanted, and he went for it, except when it came to Camden. Sin was as terrified as him but played a good game. They’d never wanted the same person before. They always talked about it, and when it happened, they would be the one for them.

They hadn’t anticipated, well, Sin hadn’t anticipated their one putting up such a fight. He wasn’t like Sin. He wasn’t confident or outgoing, he wanted someone who would love and take care of him—someone to make decisions. Sin joked about his Daddy issues. He knew Sin didn’t mean anything by it, but it hurt.

Camden had told him what to do—that he would eat. That he would sit beside him. He’d gotten hard at the commanding, gruff voice.

His chest hurt as Camden slowed to a stop. The man helped him off, and he stood beside the bike as Camden removed the helmet. He started to remove the jacket.

“No, keep it, I’ll get it next time.”

“Next time?”

“You stop by.”

“Okay.” He started to back away, but Camden’s huge hand wrapped around the back of his neck.

He found himself plastered to Camden’s side. He twisted his hands in Camden’s uniform shirt. Tilting his chin, he waited for the kiss. He wanted those firm, full mouth on his. Calloused fingertips pinched his chin, and the hand on his neck kneaded the muscles.

Another kiss landed on his forehead like before they’d left. Camden pulled back, and he looked into the man’s gorgeous green eyes. He was so close he could see the yellow flecks around the pupils.

“You’re so beautiful.”

Lips brushed his left cheek, then the right, and Camden moved lower until the man’s mouth hovered over his.


A hard tug at his hair stopped him.

“I said you’re beautiful, Ellison.”

“Thank you.”

He lowered his gaze then jerked it back up when Camden retreated.

“I’ll wait here until you’re inside.”

J.M. Dabney is a multi-genre author who writes mainly LGBT romance and fiction. She lives with a constant diverse cast of characters in her head. No matter their size, shape, race, etc. she lives for one purpose alone, and that’s to make sure she does them justice and give them the happily ever after they deserve. J.M. is dysfunction at its finest and she makes sure her characters are a beautiful kaleidoscope of crazy. There is nothing more she wants from telling her stories than to show that no matter the package the characters come in or the damage their pasts have done, that love is love. That normal is never normal and sometimes the so-called broken can still be amazing.

Review – Shelter by Jay Crownover


Shelter by Jay Crownover

My rating: 6 of 5 stars

“We’ve been on a collision course from day one. We were always going to crash into one another.”

I love the authors who ditch the ordinary for the extraordinary, who take risks in their writing, who deliver the different to readers. Every time I open a book by Jay Crownover, I know it’s going to be a voyage into unchartered territory. Just like all of Jay Crownover’s other out-of-the box books, Shelter is UNIQUE, UNPREDICTABLE, and UTTERLY BRILLIANT. The Getaway series continues to be one INCREDIBLY INTENSE ADVENTURE!!!

Shelter is tale of tough love but also a story of survival, second chances, and strength. Shelter is a roller coaster ride of an adventure with twists and turns, and ups and downs—one that takes the senses for a spin. Shelter is a fierce and fiery flame of a love story that burns all over. Shelter is a fusion of feels where no emotion is left untouched. Shelter is UNPUTDOWNABLE. Shelter is EVERYTHING!!!!

Jay Crownover has truly outdone herself with this masterful, intensely mesmerizing portrait of a broken hero and heroine who fight the hardest of battles to become whole. Emerys and Suttons’ life-altering journey continues in Shelter. A hero and heroine, both strong and stubborn, may learn that the best way to heal and put their broken pieces together may be to come together as one.

”All his broken pieces made mine seem less jagged.”

Like older brother, Warner, Sutton is a man’s man. Tall. Rugged. Handsome. Brooding. Stubborn. Tough. Tender. Sutton is my favorite Warner brother and near the top of all of Jay Crownover’s complex and tough but tender heroes.

”Even when I didn’t want to want you, I did.”

Emerys is a tall beauty who sees the light in others’ dark. She is the perfect complement to Sutton: the soft to his hard. Emerys is as bold as she is beautiful, and one of the strongest heroines I’ve encountered.

”I like all your pieces, Sutton…You keep dropping them and I keep picking them up.”

Sutton and Emerys are on fire together!!! Their chemistry is COMBUSTIBLE! This hero and heroine are imperfectly perfect but so perfect for each other in every way. It’s as if Sutton and Enerys were forged together by fate, calming each others’ storms.

”You feel like fire wrapped up in silk.”

I LOVED THIS HEART-POUNDING ROMANCE!!! My heart pounded out of my chest where I forgot to breathe. Tears streamed down my face as Shelter—this mix of SORROW, SWEETNESS and SOUL—struck me hard, igniting every emotion. Shelter struck me everywhere!!! I was so lost in this story that I didn’t want to be found.

Humming with rich descriptions, deep emotions, and razor-sharp intensity, Shelter tears at the heartstrings in a journey felt all over. What a RUSH!!! Twists and turns. Fire and ice. Dark and light. Love and loss. Chase and calm. This book BUZZES WITH EXCITEMENT!!!

Shelter is a heart-clenching thriller of a tale of love wrapped in heroism, heartbreak, hope, and healing that strikes straight to the core. Shelter is the BEST EMOTIONAL CHAOS!!! Like a shard of glass, Shelter shines and then cuts deep. An ADRENALINE RUSH spiked with HEAT and HEART, Shelter is an ADVENTURE lived and a story loved long after the last page.

”What do you get out of any of this, Em?”

“I get you.”

🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟 heart-striking and soul-shining stars

His life is chaos and confusion. It’s a storm of uncertainty and raging emotion.
Sutton Warner is a mess. Everything in his life feels like it’s unraveling.
He’s let a lot of people down lately, including his daughter. Sutton always promised his little girl he would never disappoint her and that he would always be there when she needed him. Until he wasn’t.

The truth is, he’s used to disappointing the women in his life. First was his mother who couldn’t find a reason to stick around when he was growing up. Then there’s his ex. The woman who takes unbridled delight in making his life incredibly complicated. Luckily, his daughter is still young enough to believe her old man is some kind of hero. But, he knows the day is coming when she realizes the truth, which is, he’s just a man with some serious flaws and a list of ever-growing weaknesses.

Finally, there’s the woman he’s desperately trying to forget with every shot tossed back and each pill popped.

He more than disappointed Emrys…he almost got her killed.

Her love is steady and sure. It’s a shelter shaped by conviction and silent assurance.
Emrys Santos is lost. Everything in her life feels pointless and futile.

She’s been busy running away from her feelings and all the people who love her the most—including her best friend, the one person who knows exactly what she’s been through. They promised to always stick together and to lean on one another. It was a promise Em had to break so she could lick her wounds and figure out her next move. For once, there is no easy way out of the tangled web of emotions she’s caught up in, and right now, she recognizes that all roads lead back to Wyoming…and back to Sutton.
The man she nearly got killed.

Shelter is a standalone novel, the second book in the Getaway series, which features the hardheaded and brokenhearted Warner brothers and the women who dare to love them. These boys are very good at putting the wild in wilderness.

Review – The V Card by Lauren Blakely & Lili Valente

The V Card by Lauren Blakely

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I love each of Lauren Blakely and Lili Valentes’ hot, humorous, and heartfelt stories but when paired together, this Double L DYNAMIC DUO is UNSTOPPABLE!!! Seriously!!!! Lauren Blakely and Lili Valente are a ROM-COM DREAM TEAM! Their words are just so ENTICING. This author duo’s writing fused together is FLAWLESS in their co-authored hit, The V Card.The V Card is a FUN, FIRE-HOT, and HEART-FLUTTERING ADDICTION!!!

Let’s start with the HOT and BIG-HEARTED HERO, Graham. A company owner by day and city playboy by night, Graham is not a one flavor type of guy. MR. MAN CANDY samples the goods. However, Graham is a GIVER. This hero is the type of man who OWNS A WOMAN’S PLEASURE and oh did he own mine. This man made me MELT all over, and I pledged my love to Graham way back on page one!

CJ is Graham’s friend and little sister of his best friend, a beautiful and successful business woman. I ADORED this sweet and sassy beauty! CJ is done carrying her v card, which is so old that it is covered in dust. What better man to bestow her with his sexpertise and be her cherry popper than her gorgeous guy friend, Graham?

The V Card is FRIENDSHIP ON FIRE!!! I love how the friendship flames into more. I adore how gentle Graham is with CJ. This hero is tender and touching while still so deliciously dirty—a HEADY COMBINATION. Graham and CJ are MAGICAL together! This hero and heroine are MEANT TO BE.

The V Card is the PERFECT ROM-COM!


The V Card CAPTIVATED and caught me with its witty dialogue and I found myself laughing out loud A LOT.

Note to self: if you ever change careers, consider being a sex tutor. It streamlines the focus and keeps your dick in the game.


The V Card SMOLDERS all over!!! It’s the HOTTEST brother’s best friend or best friend/ little sister romance I’ve ever met!!! This hero and heroines’ CHEMISTRY paired with Graham’s deliciously dirty mouth is so HOT!!!

“I need to make you come on my mouth … I need it like I need air.”


The V Card is as SWOONY as it is SMOLDERING. I MELTED from head to toe.

”Tell me anything.”

“I’m so glad it’s you.”

I LOVE a well-written friends-to-lovers story, and The V Card delivers the goods. Laugh-out-loud lines, smokin’ hot yet huge-hearted alpha, sweet and sassy heroine, and plot that is pure addiction make The V Card the IDEAL ROM-COM!!! This friends-to-lovers tale is full of FIRE and FEELS. You’ll fall in fast LOVE. I was ENRAPTURED with this love story! The V Card is the ULTIMATE FEEL-GOOD ROMANCE.

I know he feels it too.

💋💋💋💋💋 sweet and sexy forever kisses


When you think about how easy it is to lose keys, phones, sunglasses and your dignity on social media, you might figure it’d be a cinch for me to ditch my V Card.

You’d be wrong. At 25, I run a successful business, live in a fantastic apartment, and have fabulous friends to go out with any night of the week. And yet I’m still a card-carrying member of a club I don’t want to belong to anymore.

Good thing I know just the man for the deflowering job—my brother’s business partner and best friend.

Graham Campbell is charming, smart, and, I’m told, oh-so-skilled in the sack. As long as I keep my eyes on the prize, there’s no way this pluck-the-flower project could possibly complicate matters.


Work and pleasure. As the CEO of a fast-growing company, I’ve been enjoying both to the fullest. What do I do when the board throws me for an unexpected loop so I can keep my business in my hands? I enlist the help of my best friend’s little sister since she holds a big stake in the company. But then I learn there’s another big stake she wants.

The one between my legs.

I can do this. Seven nights to teach her everything I know in the bedroom. There’s no way I’ll fall for her, even though she’s earning top grades in every single sinfully sexy lesson. And turns out I’m learning something too. The trouble is I don’t have the answer key to what to do when I fall hard for her.

And that throws a whole new hitch in my plans.

The best way to get over someone is to get under someone else. And I have the perfect candidate all picked out.

My new assistant is tempting beyond belief with her curvy body and take-no-shit attitude. All those luscious curves, and a juicy ass I’m already in love with. God, the things that I would do to that ass…

But it’s the haunted look in her eyes that speaks to me. Like she’s taken just as much shit in her past as I have—maybe more. We both deserve a little fun.

Love can’t fix everything. Mind-blowing sex and a few killer orgasms, on the other hand?

I have a feeling those might do the trick.

This is book three in the Forbidden Desires series, and while it can be read as a standalone, it’s recommended you start with Dirty Little Secret.

Review -Leaning Into A Wish by Lane Hayes 

5 out of 5 stars

 I confess that this was my first book by this author. I’m now kicking myself for taking so long to discover Lane’s work. This book was the perfect pick me up. It had the best comic relief but still dealt with serious relationship issues. I was completely mesmerized and couldn’t read this fast enough. Danny and Ryan were the perfect pairing and just what each other needed to pull the  other out if their shells. It also was a nice Christmas read. We all love this magical time of year. I’m for sure adding all of Lane’s previous work to my TBR now, and I definitely won’t be missing any future books coming up! 





RELEASE DATE: 11.20.17



Ryan Haskell loves everything about the wine business. He’s fortunate to work at one of the most prestigious wineries in Napa Valley doing something he enjoys with the people who are like family to him. But he could do without the good-natured intern slash former jock with the wicked grin who always seems to be in the way. Ryan isn’t sure why the new guy is under his skin when everyone else loves him. Thankfully he’ll be gone after the holidays.

Danny Meyers can’t believe his luck when he lands an internship at Conrad Winery. It’s the perfect temporary gig to wrap up his graduate studies. He’s left his dreams of tennis stardom on the court to focus on a new career and a new life. However, he didn’t count on the spark of attraction he feels for his prickly co-worker. When their tentative friendship blossoms into something more than either man counted on, they may have to change direction and lean into a holiday wish.




I rolled my eyes then turned toward the bar area set up outside on the terrace. And immediately ran into Danny. I frowned and glanced back into the kitchen, wondering if Geordie somehow set this up.

“How’d you get out here so fast? I thought I saw you inside a second ago.”

“Keeping tabs on me? I’m flattered.”

“Don’t be. I’m on a refill mission.” I held up the empty glasses in my hand in case he needed proof. “Excuse me.”

“Ah. That’s important. Hey, be ready at nine a.m. tomorrow. We can use the courts at your condo complex. I’ll bring an extra racket and balls. You bring you.” Danny grinned before stepping aside to let me pass.

“Wait a sec. How do you know where I live?”

“I followed you home, memorized your license plate number, wire-tapped your place—nice boxer briefs, by the way—and rummaged through your trash. I’m gonna recommend you eat less Nutella. Too much of a good thing can end up being bad for you.”

He pursed his lips and held my stare. The intensity was overwhelming and so was he. Yeah, I figured he was messing with me, but the fact he got even a few things correct was disconcerting.

“How do you—”

Danny threw his head back and guffawed. The hearty sound rang through the terrace, garnering a few curious glances our way. “Dude, I was kidding. But…I do know where you live. See you on the court. And Ry?”


“Don’t be late.” He winked before turning on his heel and heading inside.

I watched him through the open doorway. The contrast of standing in the dark while peering into the well-lit house made me feel like a voyeur. I couldn’t tear my gaze from him. Straight or gay or whatever he was, Danny was fucking hot. And when a sexy man who moved like a panther casually brought up your underwear preference…it did things to a guy. It made me want to do things to him too.


Lane Hayes is grateful to finally be doing what she loves best. Writing full-time! It’s no secret Lane loves a good romance novel. An avid reader from an early age, she has always been drawn to well-told love story with beautifully written characters. These days she prefers the leading roles to both be men. Lane discovered the M/M genre a few years ago and was instantly hooked. Her debut novel was a 2013 Rainbow Award finalist and subsequent books have received Honorable Mentions, and were winners in the 2016 Rainbow Awards. She loves red wine, chocolate and travel (in no particular order). Lane lives in Southern California with her amazing husband in an almost empty nest.






Review – Trading Yesterday by Kahlen Aymes 

6 out of 5 stars

 6 stars but deserving of the galaxy 
I have read so many amazing books this year so it gets hard to pick a favorite. Halfway through this book though and I knew I had my top read of this years in my hands. I couldn’t put it down. It was perfect in every way. The angst, emotions  tears, pounding heart, and unconditional love was everything you could ever dream for in a book. This book will truly remain in my heart for all of eternity. I knew I would love this book,  but I had no idea how hard I would fall. 
I really don’t want to go too much into detail about what happens in the book because it will ruin your reading experience a bit. You really will just become fully immersed in Chase and Teagan’s world and feel every emotion that they experience throughout this whole journey. It can definitely be heartbreaking and you absolutely need tissues. I promise it is more than worth it in the end. 
To me, there is nothing better than being completely owned by such and emotional and real story such as Kahlen has so graciously gifted us with. This is definitely one you will surely regret if you don’t move it to  the top of your TBR. You’re heart will he bursting at the seams by the end. I promise. 

 Something inside me snapped.

“Chase, I need you.  Please, come.”

Teagan’s words screamed from the screen of my phone. My heart started pounding and I started to sweat. I felt like I might pass out as I was sucked into a vortex of emotions and memories I’d tried desperately to forget.

Teagan Tessler was the love of my life. My professional soccer career was a big part of the future we planned to have together, but an offer with Arsenal, one of England’s premier soccer teams, sent me to London a year ahead of schedule. Just months after I left, Teagan betrayed me with my best friend without an explanation.  I was completely and utterly destroyed.

Six years later, I can finally breathe again and my professional and personal life is in a good place; but, now this.  I’d  have to be insane to even consider ripping open those old wounds, but whatever she needed, it had to be huge.

The truth of my feelings resonated: I should shut off the phone and forget her forever, but my traitorous heart told me to get on a plane, no questions asked.

One decision can ruin your life… Maybe another one can save it.

From USA Today bestselling author, Kahlen Aymes, Trading Yesterday is a sexy roller coaster of emotion, ultimate loss, desperate longing, betrayal and forgiveness that will restore your faith in unconditional love.  You’ll be left gasping for more!  The Remembrance Trilogy readers will love this book.
