#NewRelease PROFESSOR FEELGOOD by Leisa Rayven @LeisaRayven #MastersOfLove2 #Standalone #Swoony #5Stars

Don’t miss this sexy new standalone from the international bestselling author of Bad Romeo!

OUR REVIEW:

From the very first moment I picked up Professor Feelgood I was drawn right into this story. It is so full of humor and heart with amazing characters that I couldn’t help but fall in love with (and a few that I completely hated!)

“Your words are just so … visceral. They’re full of passion, and longing, and pain, and how you write …I shake my head in awe. “It affects people.”

Asha Tate is looking for an idea for a bestseller. She needs this bestseller to secure a promotion, to possibly keep her job and ultimately save the publishing company she works for.

“Plus, any guy who rips open his chest to show how damaged he is definitely rates as extra-boneable. You should offer to soothe his poor heartsick soul, with like, your mouth around his cock.”

A few chapters in and I was sure that I had this story figured out, but boy was I wrong! I was surprised at every little twist and turn. I loved this story and I can’t wait to read more stories with these characters!

What’s a girl to do when a man who’s countless shades of wrong feels oh-so-right?

Ambitious book editor Asha Tate is a hopeless romantic. Despite her mediocre track record with men, she believes in swooning, sighing, and the everlasting love of true soul mates. Sure, sex is okay, but she’s not someone who’s ever been driven by her animal urges.

Until now.

When Asha stumbles upon the scorching hot Instagram feed of someone calling himself Professor Feelgood, she falls in lust for the first time. Not only is she left panting over the professor’s insane body, but his angst-filled poetry about losing his one true love speaks straight to her soul.

Desperately in need of a bestseller for her struggling publishing company, Asha knows the professor’s potential to sell to his millions of loyal followers could be the lifeline her bosses need. However, the ink is barely dry on a book deal before she realizes she’s made a terrible mistake. Sure, the professor is incredibly talented and sexier than any man has a right to be, but the man behind the persona isn’t at all who she pictured. In real life, he’s intense, arrogant and infuriating, and his uncanny ability to rub her the wrong way turns her dream project into a total nightmare.

Knowing that the professor is everything she doesn’t want in a man should help Asha ignore her occasional urges to mount him, but she quickly learns that explosive, unwanted chemistry can make even smart people do stupid things.

OUR REVIEW:

Kiss The Girl is SO MUCH FUN!! I needed a funny story to get me out of a book hangover and this was perfect..

It’s a Little Mermaid fairytale retelling with strippers and sexy times!!

“…the way he’s looking at me right now. Like he’s amazed. Like he’s grateful. Like I’m the best thing that’s ever told him to eat sh*! and die.”

Ariel is a sarcastic mouthy B- aitch with attitude for miles. Tough times seem to be snowballing and piling up one thing on top of another. Ariel is hiding her pain and scars under a hard exterior and trying to prove that she is a strong woman.

“I’m crying because of a guy. A GUY. An annoying, sweet, charming, hot, funny guy who Kool-Aid-man smashed his way through all the walls I built around myself without my even knowing it.”

Eric kind of swoops in. He quietly leads Ariel toward healing herself. He helps her to see that she can be in control of her own destiny.

“…but he’s been texting me nonstop, sending me pictures of Derrick Alfredo. Dozens of pictures of his devil cat wearing one ridiculous sweater after another, asking me which one makes him look the manliest. The hell beast is growing on me. And so is the cat.”

Kiss The Girl is the third book in The Naughty Princess Club series. Each book can be read as a standalone, but the characters from the previous books do play a large part in this story. This was my first book in this series, but I will immediately be picking up the first two books and catching up!!

ABOUT THE BOOK:

A struggling antiques collector finds herself falling in love with a millionaire playboy; but can she ever be a part of his world?

While her friends have broken free of their insecurities, Ariel Waters is struggling to come out of her shell. Her ex-husband took away her voice and her self-confidence, and Ariel is drowning under a sea of debt to afford the alimony she has to pay him. She refuses to ever fall for a man’s charms again, and is determined to make her own way.

When her house and her beloved antiques are taken by the bank after too many missed payments, Ariel finds herself adrift until the infuriatingly charming Eric Sailor comes to her rescue. Although she can’t stand the millionaire playboy, Eric’s kindness and unconditional support reveal hidden depths and a love that Ariel never imagined she could find.

AT THE STROKE OF MIDNIGHT

OUR REVIEW:

At The Stroke Of Midnight is a super fun retelling of Cinderella. The Naughty Princess Club is formed when Cynthia, Isabelle and Ariel need to find a way to support themselves. They take the lemons that life has given them and make some amazing spiked lemonade!!

“I don’t think this is a children’s princess party!” I shout over the noise of the rambunctious men as a shower of dollar bills land at my feet. One of the men yells “TAKE IT OFF!”

After being abandoned, divorced and left with no money by her husband, Cindy is just trying to keep up appearances for the PTA and her neighbors. But together with Belle and Ariel, she learns to shake off the persona that her ex-husband and MiL have built around her and she starts shaking something else!

“You are NOT going to die sexless and alone with anything stuck in your cookie, aside from another much larger, much more enjoyable frickle,” Ariel reassures me.”

I adore this really humorous series of steamy fairytales that are entertaining and loaded with heart and heat!!

-5 Stars!-

💚🍀 SERIES NOW COMPLETE 🍀💚

#NewRelease CATCHING IRISH by Katy Regnery @KatyRegnery #Novella #SummerhavenSeries #Swoony #5Stars

OUR REVIEW:

Catching Irish is a novella. It is a super quick read but doesn’t skip the emotional kick from these characters.

Tate lost her parents at a very young age and she has scars that still flare up when she gets too emotionally close to anyone.

Finian, a Haven cousin visiting from Ireland, thought he was looking for a hot and dirty vacation fling.

“…it turned out he wanted something considerably deeper than Tate was willing to offer. With the right girl, he wanted the possibility of love. He wanted the possibility of commitment. He even wanted the possibility of forever.

Love. Commitment. Forever.”

In Catching Irish, we get Fin and Tate’s beautiful story, but we also get to catch up with the Haven family. As a treat the author also adds a little note at the end giving a little more of all of our favorite Summerhaven characters.

I love this series and just hate to see it end!

-5 Stars!-

#NowAvailable DR. STRANGE BEARD (Winston Brothers #5) by Penny Reid @ReidRomance #6Stars #RomCom

Dr. Strange Beard, an all-new standalone in the bestselling, romantic comedy Winston Brothers Series by Wall Street Journal and USA Today bestselling author Penny Reid, is available NOW!

#NowAvailable DR. STRANGE BEARD (Winston Brothers #5) by Penny Reid @ReidRomance #6Stars #RomCom

OUR REVIEW:

“I mean, ladies.

Holy cow.

Get thee a Winston, stat!”

Any book by Penny Reid is guaranteed to entertain, it is always smart, sprinkled liberally with emotion and dowsed with humor. Dr. Strange Beard is no exception.

“I didn’t fight him on this for a few reasons, but mostly because the element of surprise was my favorite, even if it wasn’t on the periodic table.

My second favorite was potassium, mostly because of its freak show reaction to water.

But I digress.”

Roscoe and Simone were inseparable best friends until when they were 16, Roscoe “ghosted” Simone. Simone is back in Green Valley but secretly working undercover for the FBI investigating the Iron Wraiths Motorcycle Club where Roscoe’s deadbeat dad is Vice President.

“Don’t get me wrong, I have feelings. I just choose not to be preoccupied by, ensnared by, or guided by them. That’s not what feelings are for. If I wanted to be guided, I would open Google Maps or consult a Sherpa.”

Roscoe and Simone have amazing chemistry. Everyone around them knows it and is rooting for them. They are the ones who just can’t seem to get on the same page!

“I was glad that I didn’t let feelings be my guide because my feelings were clearly dumb as rocks.”

As a person who has a really terrible memory, Roscoe completely fascinated me! Roscoe can NEVER forget memories… like EVER. Not matter how good, bad or even painful the memory is, he can only try to bury it temporarily under another memory.

“Memory is a strange thing.” He pressed another kiss to the soft skin of my interior forearm. “An endless reminder of the past, revealing itself—as a cannon blast or a whisper—when you’re least prepared for it.”

Dr. Strange Beard is a standalone and it definitely can be read as such but it continues and at times overlaps a bit with some of the storylines from the other books in this series.

This book has everything! I laughed out loud, I was brought to tears, I swooned, and at times I was on the edge of my seat with suspense. I was just left wanting more of these Winston Brothers and Penny Reid’s writing!!

-6 Stars!!-

Hunches, horse races, and heartbreak

Ten years after Simone Payton broke his heart, all Roscoe Winston wants is a doughnut. He’d also like to forget her entirely, but that’s never going to happen. Roscoe Winston remembers everything—every look, every word, every single unrequited second—and the last thing he needs is another memory of Simone.

Unfortunately, after one chance encounter, Simone keeps popping up everywhere he happens to be . . .

Ten years after Roscoe Winston dropped out of her life, all Simone Payton wants is to exploit him. She’d also like some answers from her former best friend about why he ghosted her, but if she never gets those answers, that’s a-okay. Simone let go of the past a long time ago. Seriously, she has. She totally, totally has. She is definitely not still thinking about Roscoe. Nope. She’s more than happy to forget he exists.

But first, she needs just one teeny-tiny favor . . .

Dr. Strange Beard is a full-length romantic comedy novel, can be read as a stand-alone, and is the fifth book in the USA TODAY bestselling Winston Brothers series.

Excerpt:

“Simone, this is not one of our adventures from when we were kids. This is not finding Blithe Tanner’s cat. These men are murderers, drug dealers, thieves.”

“I know.” Boy oh boy, did I know. I didn’t want to be here anymore than he did. I was frightened. Yet allowing Roscoe to be taken on his own hadn’t been an option. “I can handle myself, and I can provide backup for you, if you need it.”

Roscoe gripped my shoulders. “Nothing can happen to you, do you understand?” His words were emphatic, his gaze disoriented, desolate, frantic. “If anything happens to you, I’ll . . .” He swallowed, apparently unable to finish the sentence.

My heart twisted to see him like this. I wished there were some way to show him what I could do, what I was capable of, so he would stop seeing me as a liability.

Well, why can’t you?

“Huh.”

Now there was a thought.

Stepping out of his grip, I walked backward to the other side of the room and took a deep breath. “Okay. Come at me.”

He blinked. “What?”

“I want you to come at me.”

“Simone,” he seethed.

“Come at me, bro.” I did that little movement with my fingers, my palm turned upwards. “Come at me or I’ll start singing again.”

“I’m not doing this.”

“Fine.”Frustrating. “I’ll come at you.”

He stood there, features set, looking raw.

Moving quickly forward, staying light on my feet, I faked right and then went left, hooking him behind the back of his leg, catching his arm to twist behind his back, and sending him to the ground—face-first—with a thud.

I winced as he grunted, my knee at the base of his spine, his arm restrained behind his back. “Sorry! But you wouldn’t listen to me.” Leaning forward, I whispered in his ear, “Are you okay? Did I hurt you?”

Roscoe’s back and shoulders rose and fell with an expansive breath, like he was about to respond, but in the next moment he’d spun his legs to the right, leveraged my knee on his back to throw me off-balance, and slipped his wrist from my hold.

In my defense, my grip had been lax as I was purposefully trying not to injure him.

The next thing I knew, Roscoe had me pinned to the ground, air knocked out of me, him hovering above, and my gun digging into my ribs beneath my shirt. He’d been careful to subdue my legs, likely so he wouldn’t end up with a bruised ballsack.

His stare more probing than angry—which I took as a good sign—he said, “I didn’t teach you that. Where’d you learn that?”

Even though I was still coughing, I smiled and rasped, “Since college, take judo.”

He nodded faintly, his eyes moving between mine, looking concerned. “Are you okay? Did I hurt you?”

“No.” Endeavoring to catch my breath, I said, “I took it easy on you because I didn’t want to hurt you either, but I’m an asset, not a liability.”

“You’re definitely an asset.” Roscoe frowned, his gaze dropping to my mouth. “And a distraction,” he said, his voice rough.

“I’m a distraction?” I asked, my words still breathy.

I bucked, but he held me fast.

“Yes. . .” His stare turned inward. “You are most definitely a distraction.”

Even though I’d had plenty of time to recover and we’d been holding still for close to a minute, I was still breathing hard. This might have been because of my lingering irritation. Or, maybe it was because the length of Roscoe’s lean body was lying on mine. He held my hands on either side of my head, our faces even, his mouth just inches away.

Was it insane that I hoped he kissed me?

Yes?

No?

Let’s go with no.

He gave me his eyes again and I saw something there, a battle. He looked undecided, at war with himself, straining against something I couldn’t see.

“Roscoe?” I whispered.

Roscoe closed his eyes, and I thought he was going to let me go, but in the next second his lips descended, capturing my mouth in a tender kiss.

I moaned.

I kissed him back.

That’s what one does when Roscoe Winston kisses one. Moan and kiss. Repeat. Because not doing so would be a travesty.

His hold on my hands slacked, his fingers seeking and threading with mine. He settled his hips between my legs, his form relaxing. The weight of him was different now, warmer somehow. At least I felt warm. I also felt cherished as his tongue sought mine, again tenderly, stroking, causing my abdomen to twist and tighten into delicious knots.

He broke the kiss and a protest died on my lips as his mouth trailed down my jaw to the sensitive skin of my neck, sucking, licking, savoring me. What had felt warm and cherishing heated, and my hips tilted reflexively as he nibbled on my ear, cradling his rapidly growing erection.

We both gasped as his hips rocked in an answering yet inelegant movement. It felt perfect and essential in the moment.

“Oh God.” His hot breath spilled against my jaw, a ragged sigh. “What are we doing?”

“I don’t know, but don’t stop.”

OUR REVIEW:

OMG!! What an amazing story! This book is for those who LOVE a dark, twisty, and wild story. If you need to ask about your “no-no’s” or “hard limits” this just might not be for you!!

“Then he bites—hard—at the soft skin between my neck and shoulder, his teeth clamping down to stake his claim on my body. On my soul.”

Luke is the new leader of the Red Order. His dark and violent past has left him as a man trying to control the monster that abides within him. Only one person seems to touch that beast and affect it in any way.

“You say I’ve ruined you James—” he steps away from me and my used body sags against the door in front of me. “—but one taste of you has damned me.”

Faithless is the third and final book in the Red Order series. Each book can be read as a standalone but have connected characters and a storyline that continues throughout. I think Faithless feels the DARKEST and most suspenseful in this series. So Good! I was on the edge of my seat reading this!

-5 Stars!!-

Faith is for the foolish.

Life is simple when you’re faithless.

Until the man who rewrites the rules, and the girl who is determined to break every one of them, set their sights on me.

They want. They take.

I beg. They smile.

They deny.

#NewRelease NOT SO NICE GUY by R.S. Grey #Standalone #RomCom #Review

#NewRelease NOT SO NICE GUY by R.S. Grey #Standalone #RomCom #Review

OUR REVIEW:

Not So Nice Guy is a seriously funny romcom about two teachers who have been best friends for years.

Even though Samantha is extremely attracted to Ian, she doesn’t want to upset the status quo and do anything to interfere with the amazing friendship that they have.

“This whole tightrope walk is getting harder and harder, but there’s no alternative. For 1300 days, I’ve been best friends with Ian Fletcher, and for 1300 days, I’ve convinced myself I’m not in love with him.”

Ian knows all along that he wants more than friendship from Sam and is just biding his time waiting for her to get that memo.

“I’ll have to take another cold shower once she leaves. My infatuation with Sam is a major drain on our planet’s supply of freshwater.”

The story veers from the ordinary and what started as a cute friends to lovers tale takes some really fun turns and twists that keep the story fresh. I loved all of the fun banter, quirky characters, and plenty of laughs.

-4.5 Stars!-

-Diane-

About NOT SO NICE GUY

“Oh my god. Who is that?”

I get asked this question a lot.

“Oh him?” I reply. “That’s just Ian.”

Just Ian is the biggest understatement of the century. Just the Mona Lisa. Just the Taj Mahal. Just Ian, with his boring ol’ washboard abs and dime-a-dozen dimpled smile.

Just Ian is…just my best friend.

We’re extremely close, stuck so deep inside a Jim-and-Pam-style friendzone everyone at work assumes we’re a couple—that is until one day, word spreads through the teacher’s lounge that he’s single. Fair game. Suddenly, it’s open season on Ian.

He should be reveling in all the newfound attention, but to our mutual surprise, the only attention he seems to want is mine.

He’s turning our formerly innocent nightly chats into X-rated phone calls. Our playful banter sports a new, dangerous edge.

I want to assume he’s playing a prank on me, just pushing my buttons like always—but when Ian lifts me onto the desk in my classroom and slides his hands up my skirt, he doesn’t leave a lot of room for confusion.

I’m a little scared of things going south, of losing my best friend because I can’t keep my hands to myself. So, I’m just going to back away and not return this earth-shattering kiss—oh who am I kidding?!

Goodbye Ian, ol’ buddy, ol’ pal!

Helloooo mister not so nice guy.

#NewRelease Waiting For Her by Jennifer Van Wyk @AuthorJenVW #Standalone #Swoony #5Stars #OurReviews #Excerpt

Waiting for Her, an all-new emotional, standalone second chance romance from Jennifer Van Wyk is available NOW!

OUR REVIEW:

I just loved Waiting For Her!! It is a friends to lovers, super swoony and romantic second chance story.

Grady and Bri were best friends then high school sweethearts until Bri disappeared.

Bri got scared. She went through SO much and felt like she was going to break. She just didn’t trust that love alone could be strong enough to get them through the difficulties.

“I was always waiting.

Waiting for her to come back.

Waiting for her to come to her senses.

Waiting for her to love me enough to fight.”

Grady is such a strong character. He not only survives all the tough that life can throw at him, he uses all of it to make himself a better person.

These main characters are introduced in previous books, but the story is a complete standalone. Waiting For Her is the first book I’ve read by this author, but will definitely not be the last.

-5 Stars!-

-Diane-

Our relationship was such a cliché.

Friends to lovers. High school sweethearts.

Then… driven by insecurities, I broke Grady Ryan’s heart.

I was weak, afraid to love, and even more afraid to be loved.

There are secrets I’ve kept buried but I can’t forget what we once shared.

I’ve been given a second chance and this time, I’m prepared to fight for him.

After six long years of silence, Bri Jameson is back in my life.

I never expected to see her again, especially not to share in the biggest opportunity of my career.

When she walks toward me across my football field, I can’t stop my heart from racing.

But time hasn’t stopped me from knowing her – and I know she’s hiding something.

I can only hope whatever it is doesn’t ruin me.

I’ve finally moved on and I won’t fall into her trap again.

I wish I could tell my heart the same thing – it’s just been waiting for her.

Excerpt:

“It’s Bri.” Mia says, both shock and confusion in her voice.

“Yeah, that’s what I said.”

“No, Grady. It’s. Bri.” Savannah says, nodding her head with wide eyes.

Mia’s eyes are narrowed, and Cole looks like he’s seen a ghost.

Actually, he’s not even looking at me. None of them are.

They’re looking behind me.

I turn in my seat to see what they’re all gawking at, and wouldn’t you know it, the object of conversation is right there.

Standing behind me.

Bright green eyes glistening.

Top teeth biting down on her plush bright red bottom lip.

Dark hair down, curling over her shoulders.

Beautiful.

To anyone else, she would look like she’s going to a St. Patrick’s Day party, but I know Bri. She has more green and white in her closet than anyone I know.

If I bleed the colors, she may as well paint them on her body. I’m sure it’s at least part of the reason she was chosen to do the story on me. She knows Warrior football better than anyone I know.

My eyes can’t decide which part of her to catalogue first. When I was younger, I was positive there was nothing sexier than Bri Jameson. It’s shockingly apparent nothing’s changed, at least in my reaction to her appearance. I take in the rest of her, wanting so badly to reach out and pull her into my arms. She’s grown into a beautiful woman.

“Bri,” I breathe out her name, stumbling like a moron to get out of my chair. The effects of two shots in less than a few minutes time hitting me more than I care to admit. Surprisingly, I have a low alcohol tolerance. With my size, one would think I’d be able to handle a lot of liquor. Not so much.

“Hi, Grady.”

The sound of her voice causing my heart to speed up triple time.

I haven’t heard it in years.

Except for in my dreams.

Or nightmares, depending on the night.

And it still hits me direct in the gut.

“What am I missing?” I hear Drew murmur behind me only to be shushed by the girls.

“Um. What…” I trail off, clear my throat, look down at the dirty bar floor, shake my head and look back at her, standing up in the process. She takes a small step back to allow me room. She’s a little thing. Only about 5 feet tall. When we were dating, I would have to practically bend in half to kiss her. A lifetime ago. My chin meets my chest when I tilt my head down to her. “What are you doing here?” I ask, finally finding my voice.

She looks away quickly before returning those eyes that always drew me to her. I never could resist her shining emerald eyes. She simply had to flutter her long lashes at me, and I was putty in her hands. “Um, I heard about this incredible band and wanted to check them out since…” Her voice trails off as she glances at the table of my friends and family uncomfortably.

She’s back in town, is what she failed to finish saying.

She swallows and closes her eyes.

I lick my lips, blow out a breath, and wait for her to open them back up.

“Wait. A. Minute.” Cole’s voice breaks through our stare down.

“Bri?” Mia sneers. Or as close to sneering as she gets. “What the hell are you doing here?” I turn in time to see her waddle her pregnant body out of the chair, shove Cole’s hand away from her shoulder and come to stand in front of me, effectively pushing Bri away a few steps considering Mia’s, well, she’s not little at the moment.

“I’m sorry. I didn’t realize everyone would…”

“Realize what? That we would be here to support Brandon?” Mia crosses her arms over her chest and taps her foot.

I press my lips together to keep from laughing.

Mia’s hardly a threat, but she’s also protective of me.

I place a hand on Mia’s shoulder and she twists her head to peek at me. She raises her eyebrows and tilts her head to the side, narrowing her eyes at me in a silent challenge for me to let her be.

“Easy, mama bear,” I murmur.

Bri looks down at Mia’s protruding belly then in Cole’s direction. She smiles faintly, her eyes glossing over slightly. I doubt if anyone else noticed, but I’ve always been a little more in tune to Bri than anyone else.

“Mom mentioned you were expecting. When are you due?” she asks quietly.

Mia lifts her chin, probably determined not to answer her because she’s a stubborn little shit, but Cole pipes up.

“Two weeks.”

“Congratulations.” She smiles but it’s sad.

“Yup. We got married, too,” Mia says, a hint of snark in her voice, raising her hand to show her ring finger.

“Mia,” Cole murmurs a quiet warning.

“Yes, I heard that.”

Of course she’d heard. Her entire family was there, celebrating with us. I’d swallowed down the hurt all day, enjoyed the moment of celebrating with my brother and Mia. Pushed away the jealousy I felt toward him and Mia, who’d also been friends before they started dating. It had been a little over two years at that point since she had walked out on our relationship. Walked out of my life.

Part of me had wondered if she’d show up at the wedding.

A bigger part of me held out hope it would happen. I missed the hell out of her and as pathetic as it may make me sound, I was still waiting for her to come back to me.

That night, more changed for me than only getting a new sister.

With Bri’s stepdad working for our dads, who own a construction company together, it’s not as if we’re strangers. Our families don’t just know each other, we’re connected in every way that matters. Which leads me to believe she knew Mia and Cole were expecting, too.

“You missed a lot,” Mia reminds her, hurt and anger lacing her voice.

In another time, Bri would have been one of Mia’s bridesmaids. It was a hole that was missing on the special day that everyone felt, not just me.

I was always waiting.

Waiting for her to come back.

Waiting for her to come to her senses.

Waiting for her to love me enough to fight.

“I did,” she nods her head sadly. “I wish I hadn’t.”

Me too.

I can’t take my eyes off her.

Can’t believe she’s here.

Standing in front of me.

Still looking too beautiful for her own damn good.

Life, man. What a mother-effing bitch it is.

“Yeah, well. It’s done,” Mia snaps. Bri breaking up with me didn’t hurt just me. That hurt and pain extended far and wide.

“Mia,” Bri whispers. Raising her eyes from where they’ve been fixated on the floor between us, she looks directly at me, rather than Mia. My gut clenches when our eyes lock, afraid she’ll see the hurt still living inside me. The sound of a chair scraping along the floor behind me startles me, breaking our stare down. She turns and starts to reach out a hand to Mia but pulls back. Rather, she lifts a hand and twists a finger through the thick strands. I used to be obsessed with running my fingers through her hair A flash of déjà vu hits me when I remember she would always mess with it when she was nervous, especially in front of a crowd of people. “I’m so sorry I missed it. I have no excuse. I won’t pretend any of what I did was okay.”

“You’re right. It wasn’t. But like I said, it’s done,” Mia says dismissively.

She doesn’t accept Bri’s apology, but I know Mia. She will eventually. The only reason she’s holding a grudge right now is because she thinks I need her to and because she’s more hurt than she’s letting on.

If Bri wants forgiveness, she’s going to have to earn it.

“So. You’re back?”

Bri takes a step in my direction, and I see realization hit Cole’s features.

He points a finger at her then me. “Wait. Is she the one?”

Out of the corner of my eye I see Drew’s head going back and forth like he’s at a tennis match, but I ignore him. I should introduce them, but I figure they’ll get to know each other soon enough.

Irritation suddenly settles in my veins. Being this close to Bri used to provide me with a sense of calm. “The one, what?” I growl, staring down at the girl I once thought was my forever.

“The one doing the article,” he explains. Cole’s not stupid. He knows she’s a reporter and who she works for. Her showing up after all this time obviously isn’t a coincidence.

I pause a few beats, breathe in deep as her eyes, so expressive and beautiful, blink up at me. “Yeah,” I admit, my heart in my throat. “She is.”

MIXED UP LOVE

By Natasha Madison

Release Day: August 7th

Standalone

OUR REVIEW:

I love, love, loved the adorable story that is Mixed Up Love!! It is a cute, fun, quick, easy read.

Laney is not thrilled when her mom sets her up on a blind date but in a moment of weakness, she agrees to go.

“Did you really want coffee?” she asks me, and I look at her.

“Was ‘do you want coffee’ code for ‘come upstairs so I can make out with you and see where you keep your gun’?” I joke with her, walking to her.

She puts her hands on her hips. “Um, no,” she says, and I raise one eyebrow, looking at her. “Okay, fine, it was, but I wasn’t going to make out with you. I was going to spill the coffee on your pants and see when you took them off.”

Hunter gets roped into taking Anthony’s place on a blind date. He has zero expectations and is just trying to get through one date. Until that leads to a second date and he gets caught up in the lies.

“Who would have known that being set up on that blind date would have gotten me mixed up in love?”

Mixed Up Love is a book that you could just pick up and read right through without stopping. It is flirty and full of super fun banter, great chemistry and swoony romantic hero!

-5 Stars!!-

Hunter

When my business partner asked me to do him a favor, I had no idea he was sending me on a blind date his mother arranged for him. I walked in the bar, saw the woman drinking her third martini, and knew I was in for an eventful night.

After the unexpected second date, she didn’t know my real name or who I really was. By that time, the lie was too far gone, and I wanted her too much to admit the truth.

Laney

It’s not every day you find out your ex-boyfriend is engaged.

I shouldn’t have agreed to the blind date. My mother insisted, and I wasn’t in any position to turn down a night out.

I will admit, I definitely shouldn’t have ordered that fourth martini before said blind date even arrived.

The man turned out to be swoon worthy, handsome, condescending—a perfect distraction. Then I found out he was a liar.

I’ve never been in over my head to this degree.

Then again, I’ve never been in love.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR

When her nose isn’t buried in a book, or her fingers flying across a keyboard writing, she’s in the kitchen creating gourmet meals. You can find her, in four inch heels no less, in the car chauffeuring kids, or possibly with her husband scheduling his business trips. It’s a good thing her characters do what she says, because even her Labrador doesn’t listen to her…

To dominate one’s heart is to truly be free.

The anticipated conclusion to The Final Harris Brother Duet.

After the harrowing attack against Gareth and Sloan, there are more than just physical wounds that must be healed.

Recovering and moving on from their dark pasts is the only way they can truly find their bright futures.

Who will surrender? And who will dominate?

OUR REVIEW:

After the Oh, Wow cliffhanger ending of Surrender, I just couldn’t wait to read Dominate. My expectations were super high and there were absolutely no disappointments here. Everything about this duet lives up to anything I could have hoped.

“I think you can be good at anything you want, my boy. It doesn’t have to be football. It just has to ignite joy and passion. And you have to want to bleed for it because you believe in it so fully. Something that you refuse to surrender to until you dominate it in every possible way. Do you understand?”

The relationship between Gareth and Sloan has so many complications and as it develops it only becomes more complicated and never easy. But they are both so strong that I just couldn’t help but want them to find a road that would take them to happiness and to each other.

“I need you to know that I’m all in, Sloan. And I’m not the kind of man who jumps out of airplanes for a rush. I’m the kind of man who stands on the ground, waiting to catch you.”

I just can’t believe that this series has come to an end! The author gives us great writing, humor and emotion throughout each book. I am so in love with this Harris family and I don’t want to let them go. I think this will be a series that I need to go back and reread them all.

“When it comes to Harris siblings, it’s hard to do anything significant without each other. When one is honoured, we all celebrate with them. When one hurts, we all feel the pain alongside them.”

-5 Stars!-

OUR REVIEW:

OMG! WOW! Those are the only things I could think when I finished this book!! What an amazing story. I am a fan of a well executed cliffhanger, and this one took my breath away!

“the memory of her lips on mine becomes fainter and fainter, like a melting ice cube evaporating before my eyes.”

I had been waiting for Gareth’s story but not because of anything I’d read about him, but mostly because he was such an unknown. He is the eldest brother in this family who’s dysfunctionality has shaped each family member. As the star player for Manchester Untied football team, Garett is someone who’s public life is in the public eye, but he keeps to himself as much as he can to protect as much of his privacy as possible.

“He can both dominate and surrender. In fact, it makes him more of a man if he can do both.”

Sloan is living a life that has just seemed to spiral completely out of her control. All aspects of her life including where she lives, her work, everything has been decided by someone else or just what she must do to get by.

“On the surface, she’s peaches and cream with a sweet, pleasing sort of nature. But there’s a fire beneath the surface of her that cannot be denied.”

Together Gareth and Sloan find they have what the other needs, but they are both hiding so much under the surface. Surrender has all the feels. It was like riding waves of humor and emotion.

“I miss you, Sloan. We used to be friends.”

Her eyes are practically hooded when she licks her lips and replies, “We were never friends.”

I smirk. “We were friendly.”

She smirks back. “Too friendly I seem to recall.”

I really wanted to read this book slowly, to bask in the romance of it, to enjoy every bit of our last Harris brother. But after starting I just couldn’t stop reading. Even during the night I woke several times thinking of Gareth and Sloan and I had to read a bit more before I could rest. I think I will be holding my breath waiting for the conclusion to this story!

-5 Stars!-

-Diane-

BLURB

One night of complete surrender is all it takes.

Gareth Harris is Manchester United’s reclusive star defender. He has control over all aspects of his life. But a lifetime of supporting his siblings and filling in for an emotionally absent father has taken its toll.

Sloan Montgomery is a clothing stylist whose world was turned upside down when she found herself pregnant and moving to Manchester with a man who was never supposed to be her forever. Now recently divorced and struggling with shared custody of her daughter, control is a fleeting concept for this American living in England.

Both Gareth and Sloan are in need of a release.

A moment in time where they can forget about their pasts and family pressures…and just…

…surrender.

No one could predict what happens when both of their defences are down.

Surrender is part one of The Final Harris Brother Duet and concludes with Dominate. The Final Harris Brother Duet reads great as a duo, but to maximize enjoyment, check out the first three brothers’ books in Challenge, Endurance, and Keeper.
