I loved him. I lost him. And now he’s back. 
 
 
August Monreaux was a stormy sea of a man, the dark between the stars, an electric chill cutting through a crowded room—all wrapped into one wicked, beautiful package. 
 
 
He was also off-limits. 
 
 
My entire life, I was kept a safe distance from the notoriously virulent Monreauxs, banned from so much as breathing the same air. And like the good daughter I was, I obeyed those rules. 
 
 
Until the one time I didn’t …
 
 
Only while I sampled him, he devoured me like the forbidden fruit that I was. And in the blink of an eye, my worst enemy became my first love. His poison became my antidote. His touch, my addiction. 
 
 
After we severed our ill-fated ties, I thought I’d never see him again. 
 
 
Until he crashed back into my life at the worst possible moment—and asked me to marry him.
 
 
But it wasn’t that simple.
 
 
It never is. 
 
 
Turns out marrying a wealthy powerhouse of a man comes with a price. 
 
 
But walking away, could cost me everything.

My Review…

I always get giddy when a new Winter Renshaw novel comes out and Enemy Dearest was so worth the wait!

I got such a Romeo and Juliet vibe from this story of August and Sheridan.

A bitter rivalry between August’s and Sheridan’s family has bled down to the children. They have both been told the absolute worst about each other’s families and that animosity has been passed down.

August and Sheridan know of each other, but have never met until one night.  And boy does the snarkiness fly when they do! 

Sheridan has lived a sheltered life, she embraces her inner wallflower. But don’t let that sway you, she also has a steel backbone and doesn’t put up with the arrogance that August puts out there.

August has revenge on his mind.  He’s been taught to hate the Roses for taking something precious from him and his family. And when he meets Sheridan an evil plan starts to form.  But he underestimated Sheridan’s strength and soon realized there is more to her than just a name.

This is a fast paced story that kept me riveted until the end.  There are twists and turns, a bit of mystery and the chemistry between Sheridan and August is hallelujah hot!

The Finish Line Blurb 

Secrets and Lies…

I’ve lived the entirety of my life wrapped up in subterfuge for one purpose—revenge.

Through the years, I lived more as an enigma than a man.

For so long, I denied I had a beating heart of my own.

Until her. Until she unearthed the starving vessel inside, forced me to acknowledge it, forced me to understand that I’m capable of bleeding the same as any other.

For that, we paid. We’re still paying.

Yet, she demands it still, the useless heart of the ruthless thief and shameless villain she fell for. My fear is, I’m no longer that man.

With the lies I’ve told, the life I’ve led, my mistakes are beginning to catch up with me, day by day, one by one.

This is my last chance, and I have no intention of losing her again, but as the deception of my past starts to unravel and close in, shedding my humanity may be the only thing that can save us both.

Maybe it’s already too late.

Title: Audrey’s Inn

Author: Elle Aycart

Genre: Contemporary Romance

Release Date: February 8th

About Audrey’s Inn:

Audrey Fleming never had much of a family or place to call home, so when she gets the chance to buy an inn that once belonged to her late namesake, she doesn’t think twice. Never mind her lack of funds, connections, and experience. Besides, she’s out of options and Alden seems like the ideal place to lie low for a good long while.

Connor Stonewell, beloved grandson of Greta, OG extraordinaire, was once one of Alden’s Golden Boys. Now he’s a hot mess. He’d never envisioned a future where he wasn’t in the military, so getting discharged after a mission gone horribly wrong has left him adrift in the civilian world.

He’s too dangerous to be around his fellow soldiers—never mind a certain sweet, sexy innkeeper he can’t seem to stay away from. He should stop playing with fire. Pack his shit and disappear for good. Too bad he can’t do it. Walking away from Audrey is something every fiber of his being refuses to do.

Their secrets will sooner or later catch up with them. Audrey and Connor both know it. But whether they’ll survive or crash and burn under the weight of revelation is anybody’s guess.

Pre-Order Today!

ABOUT 

“Are you sleeping with my daughter?” 

 

Not the question I wanted to hear from my coach. The man holding my pro future in the palm of his hand. 

 

The answer: No, sir.

 

The real answer: I’d sure as hell like to be.

 

Marisa’s been my best friend since third grade. And now she needs my help–and a place to stay. Senior year was supposed to be the year to keep some distance until the season finished and my draft prospects were safe. 

 

But resisting her is becoming impossible. Movie Thursdays under the blankets. Study sessions on my bed. Wild party nights where I kept any guy interested at bay with a single glare. 

 

Her dad can bench my ass for the entire season, so she’s off limits–for now. 

 

She’s the only woman I’ve ever loved. And one heated night, I can’t stop fighting every cell in my body and can’t stop myself from sampling her sexy smile, her sweet smell, and her sultry curves. 

 

We’re walking a tightrope with my future on the line. Let’s just make sure Coach doesn’t find out…

EXCERPT

“My toes are freezing.” She wiggled them against the hard, dark concrete.

I glanced down at her bare feet. If I offered to carry her inside, she’d probably punch me in the balls, so I bit the inside of my cheek, watching for glass or splintered wood on the porch steps. 

Inside, I got her straight to my room and handed her a t-shirt and some boxers before I sent her to shower. 

Her quietness told me just how much she needed to get under the covers—for once she didn’t have a quip or a biting comment. 

The stench of smoke hung heavy in my room, more noticeable now that we were away from the fire. I sniffed my shirt and jerked away from the burning smell. The last thing I wanted was for her to walk in here and be hit with the stink of char. 

I took off my smoke-soaked clothes and grabbed my towel off the back of the door, wrapping it around my waist. I dumped the clothes outside my door and grabbed fresh ones. 

The water in the bathroom shut off and the door opened, the hot, humid air billowing into the hallway. 

She stumbled back in and spotted me, freezing mid-hair-drying. 

Dammit, maybe I should’ve waited to take my clothes off until I’d gotten to the bathroom, but it wasn’t like she hadn’t seen me in just swim trunks before. At least I’d gotten the towel on and she hadn’t walked in on me totally naked like she had last summer after our water balloon battle. 

“My clothes smelled like smoke too. I’m hopping in the shower.”

Seeing her in my clothes did something to me—something that couldn’t be contained by a towel. I clutched my sweats and t-shirt in front of my now-straining erection. My blood pounded in my veins and I didn’t know how I was supposed to spend the night lying beside her. Maybe I should take the couch. I rushed out the doorway, poking my head back in.

“Get into the bed. I’ll be back in a few.” I flicked off the light, blanketing the room in darkness aside from the glow from the hallway.

The shower was quick and efficient and I kept myself from relieving the pressure that had built up when I saw her in my clothes. I cranked it to cold until my cock deflated and I could end my freezing torture.

Climbing out, I picked up her clothes from the floor and dropped them outside my bedroom door. I’d wash them in the morning and see if a gallon of detergent got the smell out. 

If it didn’t, I wasn’t opposed to her wearing more of my clothes until we got her some new ones or she got to go back to her place to see what could be salvaged.

There was no sound in my room. For a second, I thought she might’ve gone downstairs to get something to eat, but then I heard her soft, gentle breaths coming from my bed. 

I hung my towel up and crossed the room. 

Marisa was spread out like a starfish, taking up most of the bed. 

Chuckling, I took her arm and put my hand on her waist, rolling her toward the wall. She grumbled, but let me move her, shifting her pillow and clutching it to her chest. 

If I weren’t a glutton for punishment, I’d have taken a pillow and blanket and gone downstairs to the couch of torture, or I’d have nudged her even further toward the wall and put my back against hers. But I couldn’t help myself. 

Sliding into the bed, I curled my body around hers, wrapping my arm around her. Just for tonight. Just because of how close I’d come to losing her. Just because I couldn’t help myself. 

Her hair smelled like me. As much as I loved that, I’d have to pick up some of her shampoo and soap when I got a chance. 

“Night, Marisa.” Closing my eyes, I breathed deeply, matching my breaths to hers. 

Tonight, I’d hold her in my arms. 

Tomorrow, I’d figure out how to deal with being in love with the coach’s daughter.

My Review…

Another visit to Fulton U?  Yes, please!  This is the long-awaited story of Marissa and LJ, and it was so well worth the wait.

Lifelong friends, check! Unresolved feelings, check! A history that is painful and yet beautiful at the same time, check!

You get it all in this story.  I could so empathize with Marissa, her trepidation, her grit and spirit to become the young woman she has become despite the childhood she had was remarkable.  I could understand her frustration and her fragile sense of trust and self-worth.  LJ and his family were her only source of steadiness in her world.

LJ what a dreamboat! But boy did he get his signals crossed when it came to Marissa.  He thought one way while she thought another!  Typical in a boy/girl friendship, but was written beautifully by Ms. Hughes.

There is a beautiful and romantic surprise that left me cheering for both of Marissa and LJ! I would have never had guessed and was so moved when it came to light! 

I loved this story until the very end and am so hoping for Keyton’s story soon! Even if you haven’t read any other story in the Fulton U series, get your hands on this one!  

Get ready for an all new enemies-to-lovers duet romance from Lauren Rowe coming THIS April!

FALLING OUT OF HATE WITH YOU

I’ve tried to like Adrian Savage, the mercurial frontman for Fugitive Summer, while serving as his band’s opening act on tour. We’re stuck together for three months, after all. And I’m well aware I’m lucky to be here.

But it’s proved impossible. He’s far too rude and dismissive a guy to get along with. And way too good at getting under my skin. In fact, at this point, I think it’s fair to say I downright hate his guts.

Global thirst trap that he is, though, I’m finding it extremely difficult not to want to jump Savage’s bones, despite how much he infuriates me. I hate myself for it. But my body is going rogue on me. It doesn’t matter, though. I’m determined to resist him.

In fact, what I’ve decided is that, as long as I’m here and stuck with him, I’m not only going to give Savage the sound tongue lashing nobody else around here has the balls to deliver, I’m going to bring that bad boy to his knees.

FALLING INTO LOVE WITH YOU

I’m obsessed with Laila Fitzgerald. There, I finally admitted it. I’ve tried not to want her. I tried to step aside when my best friend said he wanted her. But it’s proved impossible. She’s too gorgeous and talented, too charismatic and badass, for me not to want her for myself.

Unfortunately, though, karma’s a bitch. In trying to do the right thing by my best friend, I’ve done the wrong thing by myself. I’ve pushed her away every chance I’ve had. Dug way too deep a hole to crawl out of . . . And now, Laila downright hates my guts. And rightly so.

But since we’re stuck together, yet again—and, this time, even more closely—I’ve decided nothing will stop me from getting what I want. This time, I’m going to figure out a way to coax Laila into falling out of hate with me . . .

Three tattoo guns.

Five motorcycle tires.

Countless T-shirts.

 

That’s what I lost before I realized nothing good comes from dating my co-workers. 

 

Usually, I don’t have much self-control. So, the fact that Frankie Grant is a hot, talented tattoo artist means it’s a damn miracle she hasn’t already been in my bed. But nothing can happen between us because Frankie comes with Jolie, her young daughter, and a crap load of baggage from her ex. And those are two things I never entertain.

 

Anyone who knows me—the screwed up foster kid from the wrong side of the tracks—knows I’m not the guy you take home to meet your parents, let alone your kid. But I also know what it’s like not to have parents, so things get complicated when Jolie asks me to be her daddy.

 

I might as well just slash my own tires now.

My Review…

The Rooftop Crew

As sad as I was to see this story I was also so in love with both of these characters from the time they were both introduced in this series and was happy to finally see how their story turned out.  And what a story it was.

Jax and Frankie have had a bit of my heart from the get-go and I knew their story was going to be an epic finale to this fantastic series.  Way to go Piper Rayne!

Jax loves the life he leads, no responsibilities but himself, loves his job and loves his freedom.  Or so he thinks.  Enter his co-worker Frankie and she slowly changes his way of thinking.

Frankie is a single mom trying to navigate her burgeoning career and keeping her mom guilt to a minimum. When she first meets Jax, there is such animosity between them.  But there is a very thin line between love and hate, Frankie and Jax are the very definition of that.

Their chemistry is off the charts hot, white-hot, hotter than the hinges on the gates of Hades!  I’ll admit, even after the numerous romance books I have read and reviewed, I caught myself blushing and have to grab my old lady fan to cool myself off after reading some of their smexy times!

This story was the perfect ending to a group of people that I fell for hard!  I know I will be re-reading all of these stories again in the future!

And neither can he.

My Review…

Another stellar story by Ava Harrison! Full of steam, angst and a twist you won’t ever see coming!

This is the story of Bailey and Drew.

Bailey is trying to find her way back from a dark and dangerous past.  She is fighting hard to keep her sobriety and when the chance at a job comes around, she can’t say no.  She is at rock bottom and hopes that working at club Silver will help.  She knows she will be exposed to things that may make her fall off the wagon, but when she is exposed to Drew…well all bets are off!

Drew is a controlling, demanding owner of club Silver. He is doing a “favor” to get ahead in his business ventures by hiring Bailey. But when he lays eyes on her, he knows she is much more than a business deal.

I admired the cast of characters in this book, every one of them had a voice and a realism that really brought me into the story! I couldn’t put it down until the very end and what an ending it was!

You won’t be disappointed in this new story from Ms. Harrison! Well done!

TheStrikeOut_collage-5

BLURB:

It started with one night out with the boys.

She was the hot diner waitress putting herself through school.

I was the rich, arrogant player everyone misjudges.

On paper we didn’t match.

Yet all it took was one day. One single day to change her mind.

She wasn’t planning to spend her day off with me.

She wasn’t supposed to fall for my charm.

But one day, one smile, turned into several nights of her calling out my name.

I’m not the guy she should end up with. I’m jealous, possessive. Not here for a long time – just a good time.

She’s changed me.

But, for some reason, I feel her slipping through my fingers and no matter what I do, I fear I’m going to strike out with the one and only girl I’ve ever fallen for.

TheStrikeOut_teaser-7

EXCERPT:

“Four patty melts, then?” Harmony asks, with a little more attitude in her voice than before.

“That would be—”

“Is there something wrong?” I ask, interrupting Knox before he can say something douchey like “that would be lovely.”

“Nope.” She pops the P with a snap of her lips and refuses to look at any of us.

“Then the patty melts would be—”

“Do you have something against us being on the baseball team?” I ask, turning my entire body toward her. Carson groans. He becomes “ravenous” when he’s drunk, and I know all he wants is his patty melt with a plateful of fries, but I want some answers first.

The stigma on campus is that the players on the Brentwood baseball team are entitled assholes—which might be true for some of the players who’ve worked through the system, but not for us. There’s also a good chance, at least once a day, that we run into a student on campus who hates us. Didn’t think it would happen before school started.

“Dude, you’re so aggressive right now,” Knox says. “Maybe she just—”

“Yeah, I do.” Harmony props her hand on her hip.

“Okay, never mind.” Knox leans back in his booth and folds his arms over his chest.

“Let me guess,” I say in an irritated and affronted tone. “You think we’re a bunch of entitled assholes who rule the campus and don’t deserve half the benefits we receive for being on the team.”

She folds her arms as well and with a whole lot of sass, she says, “Yeah, I do. Your expensive stadium, equipment, staff, and full-ride scholarships eat up half the tuition on this campus, leaving nothing for us peasants. You’re obnoxious, self-righteous, and think the world revolves around you. Meanwhile, the rest of the students around you work at shitty diners, earning low wages, serving drunk morons like you at all hours of the night, just to put ourselves through college so we can earn a degree, graduate to a shitty job that won’t pay for our student loans, and wind up in debt with the rest of the country.”

Yikes.

Silence falls. What do you say to that?

Clearly, she’s bitter, but with the passion flaming in her eyes and the claws ready to shoot from her fingertips, I think I should slowly back away.

Jason takes that moment to appear from the bathroom, and he sits with a resounding plop. He glances around and asks, “Did you order me a patty melt?”

Rolling her eyes, Harmony takes off toward the kitchen, leaving us concerned. Is she going to put in our order? Because we want our patty melts.

My Review…

If you looked up the word persistent in the dictionary, you would see Holt Green!

The next story in this series is Holt and Harmony! Originally a short story in an anthology, Ms. Quinn has added more and made this story even better.

I loved the fierce independence of Harmony, and sometimes I wanted to shake her and tell her to swallow her pride!! I could understand her need for self-preservation but sometimes when you find your soul mate, you need to take the leap!

I also loved the endless amount of optimism that Holt had! He knew what he wanted and he persisted until he got it.  In a swoony, confident swagger he strutted into Harmony’s world and made her see him for the person he truly was.  Not the stereotypical athletic jock, but a true romantic at heart.

Now that’s not to say that these characters had a perfect romance, they had some major speed bumps along the way. With a flair for the angst, Ms. Quinn brings the reader along the winding roads of Holt and Harmony’s relationship.  Their love is strong and sometimes that’s what matters.

I loved seeing the baseball loft crew again! Who doesn’t love this whole team of characters!

With her signature blend of heart, heat and hilarity, Ms. Quinn knocks another one out of the park with this story!

EXCERPT

Breathing heavily, blood pounding, my heart ramming into my ribs, I jerked back staring at him.

“What—?” My anger transformed into confusion.

His fingers gripped my face and slipped around the bottom of my ear, holding me to him while he delved deeper into the kiss. His tongue flicked against mine and I whimpered, drawing a groan from him, lost to the thumping beat of the blood coursing through my veins.

He let me go and stared into my eyes. There was no hesitation or confusion in them, only a hunger.

And my confusion reversed course and shifted straight into passion. The raging fire of anger was channeled into a need. The flood gates had opened, only this time it wasn’t water—it was fire.

My swollen, aching lips transmitted a signal radiating throughout my body. The need crawling under my skin was hungry for more.

“I’ve wanted to do that for so long.”

Panting, heated with a mental shout of ‘finally,’ I stared into his eyes, seeing the truth of his words. My heart was finally free to let all those feelings loose, and the tears almost made their return. This was pure, unadulterated bliss. “What the hell took you so long?”

His hands slid down my sleeves until they got to my hands and he intertwined his fingers with mine.

“When I’m standing here with you like this—” he lifted our hands and held them to his chest. “I have no freaking idea.”

There were so many things to sort through, but now the need was winning out. “Then kiss me again.”

He kicked my door closed and went in for another kiss. The first hadn’t been a fluke, not by a long shot.

This wasn’t a daydream. This wasn’t a fake out. This was happening.

Before long, needy sounds filled the room. It took me far too long to realize they were coming from me.

I dropped my head to his shoulder. A nearly-silent prayer for him not to stop whispered across my lips.

His lips danced along the curve of my neck, intensifying the heat humming through my body.

My hands ran along his back, shoving at the sweater and t-shirt underneath.

He stilled and rocked back, cupping my cheek. “I want you, Marisa.” An extra-long blink and his gaze was back on mine. “I need you.”

AUTHOR BIO

Maya Hughes, that’s me!, can often be found sneaking in another chapter while hiding in the bathroom from her kids! 🙂 I’m a romance writer who loves taking inspiration from everyday life, namely my husband and biggest fan. Inspiration also strikes when I hear a song, meet someone new or daydream while at soccer practice.

I love writing stories that capture the possibilities of the paths less travelled and enjoy experiencing life through my characters’ eyes.

I’m the mom of three little ones, the wife to an amazing husband and also work full time. Some of my favorite things are cupcakes, cinnamon rolls, white wine, laughing until I can’t breathe, traveling with my family and Jeff Goldblum.

I loved him. I lost him. And now he’s back. 
August Monreaux was a stormy sea of a man, the dark between the stars, an electric chill cutting through a crowded room—all wrapped into one wicked, beautiful package. 
He was also off-limits. 
My entire life, I was kept a safe distance from the notoriously virulent Monreauxs, banned from so much as breathing the same air. And like the good daughter I was, I obeyed those rules. 
Until the one time I didn’t …
Only while I sampled him, he devoured me like the forbidden fruit that I was. And in the blink of an eye, my worst enemy became my first love. His poison became my antidote. His touch, my addiction. 
After we severed our ill-fated ties, I thought I’d never see him again. 
Until he crashed back into my life at the worst possible moment—and asked me to marry him.
But it wasn’t that simple.
It never is. 
Turns out marrying a wealthy powerhouse of a man comes with a price. 
But walking away, could cost me everything.
