How to kick off a great summer in the Hamptons:

Snag a gorgeous rental on the beach. Check.

Get a job at a trendy summer haunt. Check.

How to screw up a great summer in the Hamptons:

Fall for the one guy with a dark leather jacket, scruff on his face, and intense eyes that doesn’t fit in with the rest of the tony looking crowd. A guy you can’t have when you’ll be leaving at the end of the season.

Check. Check. Check.

I should add—especially when the guy is your sexy, tattooed God of a boss.

Especially when he not only owns your place of employment but inherited half of the town.

Especially when he’s mean to you.

Or so I thought.

Until one night when he demanded I get in his car so he could drive me home because he didn’t want me walking in the dark.

That was sort of how it all started with Rush.

And then little by little, some of the walls of this hardass man started to come down.

I never expected that the two of us, seemingly opposites from the outside, would grow so close.

I wasn’t supposed to fall for the rebel heir, especially when he made it clear he didn’t want to cross the line with me.

As the temperature turned cooler, the nights became hotter. My summer became a lot more interesting—and complicated.

All good things must come to an end, right?

Except our ending was one I didn’t see coming.

Rebel Heir is the first book in the Rush Series Duet. Book Two, Rebel Heart, will release six weeks later on May, 22, 2018.

Synopsis

 

We’ve been best friends since we were five: Beau, Masyn, and me.

Relationships change and so do people.
Especially now.
With Beau getting married, and a new girl in town, it’s time to confess.
I’m in love with my best friend.
…And I think I’m too late.

Excerpt

 

Felicity and Beau greeted each person at the door and thanked them for coming. His parents were next in the welcome wagon, and I thought the whole thing was strange. This girl had more personalities than Sybil. I could only guess what her mother had said to her, or better yet, Beau’s mother. Mrs. Chastain reigned supreme in these parts. She was head of every women’s committee in the county, did countless hours of volunteering, led the church bizarre, and put on the town’s fall festival every year. She was as Southern as apple pie and moonshine, right down to the accent and the debutante balls.

“Masyn, dear, you look lovely tonight. Hopefully, I’ll be attending your wedding in the near future.” Mrs. Chastain turned her attention to me. “Don’t wait too long, Lee. Someone might sweep her out from under you.”

Dear God, this woman had been hitting the sauce already. “We’re not dating, Mrs. Chastain,” I reminded her for about the hundredth time in six years.

Masyn had been wrapped up in the arms of Mr. Chastain while my conversation continued with his wife.

“Fiddlesticks. Just because you don’t label it, doesn’t mean it doesn’t exist.” She waved her hand at me and grinned. “Seriously, Lee. Your mother would roll over in her grave to know you hadn’t made an honest woman out of Masyn.”

I wouldn’t know. My mother had died when I was three, and I remembered very little about her. My father struggled to raise me after she passed away. Not because he couldn’t support us financially—he never stopped grieving her loss. To this day, it controlled him. I finally convinced him, after I graduated, to move to the city and get out of this town where memories bogged him down like quicksand. He seemed a bit happier now that he didn’t live in the past, but I could only attest to what he told me since I didn’t see him much.

“I’ll take that into consideration, Mrs. Chastain.” I loved Beau’s mom. She’d been meddling in my love life since we were kids; I didn’t expect her to stop now. Luckily, she’d done the same to Masyn. Oddly, she never pushed Masyn toward Beau. Even as little kids, she coupled the two of us.

She leaned in and kissed my cheek. “Don’t drink too much tonight. You hear me?”

“Yes, ma’am.” I stopped myself from striking a rigid pose and saluting her. I’d been smacked enough for one day.

A tug on my arm finally pulled me through the line of greetings. If it had been anyone else, I might have bitched about them being rude. That tiny hand was as familiar as the smell of motor oil. Masyn could drag me anywhere she wanted to go, and I’d follow willingly.

Masyn laced her fingers with mine and clutched her side with the other. “I’m starving. Please tell me this is a buffet and we don’t have to wait for a seated dinner.”

I raised my eyebrows and let her form her own opinion. A buffet—that was laughable. I would have a buffet—or hell, maybe even a barbeque. Beau Chastain would not. And I doubted Felicity even knew what one was. “How about a drink, instead?”

“You shouldn’t drink on an empty stomach.”

She was right; I shouldn’t. But we both knew I would. This wasn’t my social scene, regardless of the fact I’d grown up in it. I spent more time with Beau’s family than I did my own. When my dad flaked out, the Chastains picked up the slack. And somehow, Masyn fit into the majority of my childhood memories as well. Her family was good as gold, and they welcomed me the same way the Chastains had. In some ways, my mother dying left me with two others and three fathers. I picked up Masyn’s three brothers and Beau, Bodie, and Braden as well. No one ever knew the Porters and Chastains came from different social standings—and in my opinion, thatwas the sign of true class. Felicity didn’t stand a chance of fitting in with the likes of Beverly Chastain.

“You’re going to anyhow, aren’t you?” The pout that formed on her lips almost had me giving in. Almost. If she’d pressed those plump lips to mine, I would become an active leader in a movement toward prohibition.

My Review!

Playing to Win – the second book in the Brits in Manhattan series….

This is the first book I have read from Laura Carter, and color me impressed!

This is the story of Izzy (Isabella) and Brooks and what a chemistry they have!

Izzy was a bird in a gilded cage, but wanted so bad to be free, to break the chains of upper crust British family and be her own person, to do the things she loved.  I admired her tenacity and I wanted to shake her when she made such poor choices and bad mistakes! But in the end I loved her for breaking away and becoming happy doing what she wanted to do!

Oh Brooks, my heart broke for him. His history with Alice and the result in Cady was so sad.  It really did follow him and dictate his life and choices for the years following.  He’s had his heart broken and it was going to take a strong person to get through to him.

Like I said earlier, Izzy and Brooks chemistry is off the charts! Their bickering and fighting was foreplay to them and it was fun to read! It wasn’t all hearts and flowers which made it more real! There was some laughter from me while reading this, especially when Brooks is salsa dancing in the shadows and gets caught!

I am so glad to have the opportunity to read this and can’t wait to read what’s next for Laura!  Thank you for your words and stories! Well done!

Happy Release Day & Review – Reckless by Lex Martin

Title: Reckless
Author: Lex Martin
Genre: Adult Contemporary Romance
 Release Date: February 20, 2018

 

Blurb
Tori…
For the record, I’m
not going to hook up with my boss.
I’m a lot of
things—a screwup, a basket case, a flunky. But when I take a nanny job to be
near my pregnant sister, I swear to myself I’ll walk the straight and narrow,
which means I cannot fall for my insanely hot boss.
I don’t want to be
tempted by that rugged rancher. By his chiseled muscles or southern charm or
the way he snuggles his kids at bedtime. Ethan Carter won’t get the key to my
heart, no matter how much I want him. 
Ethan…
Between us, she’s
the last thing I need as I finalize my hellish divorce. 
What sane man trying
to rebuild his life wants a hot nanny with long, sexy hair, curves for miles,
and a smart mouth? A perfectly kissable, pouty mouth that I shouldn’t notice.
My focus is on my
kids and my ranch, not the insufferable siren who sleeps in the room next to
mine. It doesn’t matter that she wins over my kids in a heartbeat or runs my
life better than I do. Tori Duran is the one woman I can’t have and shouldn’t
want, no matter how much I crave her.

My Review!

From the Epigraph to the Epilogue, this book was phenomenal!

This story of Ethan and Tori is what a perfect romantic comedy should be.

Tori has had craptacular luck in her past and even though she has had it hard, she still holds onto her humor, feistiness and truthfulness which makes her my hero! Some of Tori’s comments and thoughts made me laugh out loud (getting some strange looks from my family) while I was reading.  I love a story that does that!

Ethan, oh Mylanta is this man fabulous! I think the quote that made me fully swoon was “…you have occupied most of my thoughts, half of my dreams and at least two-thirds of my future plans…” Wowza, I needed a cold shower after that, and it’s just one of the many swoon worthy things he says and does that makes me melt!  Fantastically done Lex! He is the quintessential gentleman cowboy.  Trust me, once you read this you will want an “Ethan” for yourself!

The secondary characters are fantastic! They really add to the story and I hope that we get to see a book about Logan soon! (Pretty please?)

The dialogue is quick, funny and oh so steamy that it makes you really want to keep reading until the end.

Thank you for your fantastic stories Lex! Never stop writing!!

Author Bio
MV ELLIS knows what it’s like to fall head over
heels in love with a badass musician. She followed her heart halfway around the
world to be with one. She moved from London to Sydney after a steamy holiday
romance with a sexy bass player in sultry Brazil.
Twelve years, two children and a dog later, and she’s still
smitten. All this with a guy she sat next to on a bus for 36 hours! She has
toured internationally as a “WAG,” and her experiences inspire her writing.



Ellis’s love of romance began when she was 11 years old,
after a summer spent secretly reading her auntie’s books. She’s been a sucker
for an alpha hero and strong heroine ever since.

An avid reader, Ellis always knew she’d write a book of her
own one day. She was right about that. Following a career spanning advertising,
marketing, and social media, she finally wrote Catching London in
2017.

Whoop! It’s Here!! Happy Release Day & Review – Fresh Catch by Kate Canterbary

See My Review Below!

 

His walls might be tall, but I wasn’t afraid of the climb.

Fresh Catch_ebook cover

Title: Fresh Catch
Author: Kate Canterbary
Release Date: February 20, 2018

Blurb_

Take a vacation, they said. Get away from Silicon Valley’s back-stabbing and power-grabbing. Recharge the innovative batteries. Unwind, then come back stronger than ever.

Instead, I got lost at sea and fell in love with an anti-social lobsterman.

There’s one small issue:

Owen Bartlett doesn’t know who I am. Who I really am.

~~

I don’t like people.

I avoid small talk and socializing, and I kick my companions out of bed before the sun rises.

No strings, no promises, no problems.

Until Cole McClish’s boat drifts into Talbott’s Cove, and I bend all my rules for the sexy sailor.

I don’t know Cole’s story or what he’s running from, but one thing is certain:

I’m not letting him run away from me.

Bio_

Kate Canterbary doesn’t have it all figured out, but this is what she knows for sure: spicy-ass salsa and tequila solve most problems, living on the ocean–Pacific or Atlantic–is the closest place to perfection, and writing smart, smutty stories is a better than any amount of chocolate. She started out reporting for an indie arts and entertainment newspaper back when people still read newspapers, and she has been writing and surreptitiously interviewing people—be careful sitting down next to her on an airplane—ever since.

Kate lives on the water in New England with Mr. Canterbary and the Little Baby Canterbary, and when she isn’t writing sexy architects, she’s scheduling her days around the region’s best food trucks.

Review_

To start….that dedication grabbed my heart!

I love how Kate’s stories are all tangentially bound, it’s beautiful without being overbearing. You have to savor her words slowly, like fine wine or you will miss something. Everytime I read her words, I do so in small sips, so I can truly appreciate it.

This story of Owen and Cole is just wow.  This story really stretched my comfort zones in just the right way.  I felt like I was being treated with kid gloves when needed and pushed when warranted. It made me respect Kate all the more.  This is the first book I have read in the M/M genre and I am glad I did it with Fresh Catch.  It was a beautifully written story.

Owen, the lobster boat captain and Cole, the tech billionaire.  I liked how they were both comfortable in their own skin but wary as well, it made it believable and made me love them all the more.  I loved how they walked the tightrope of their sexuality in the beginning, ever so cautious but once revealed it was like a house on fire! You get real, you get honest and you get that their love is their own and they are not apologizing for it.

I loved the secondary characters and of course, I hope to see more of a certain few in the future, I will not spoil this by naming anyone but know when you read this book, you will find a few of your own!

Kate Canterbary has a die hard fan in me, she has yet to write something that I haven’t fallen in love with.

I want to sign off with this quote that did it for me…it is a total Kateism! (Can I coin that word as a new dictionary entry?!?) “…Stick-to-your-ribs,  prickle-the-back-of-your-neck, hot-and-sweaty-all-over, headboard-banging desire…” Wowza, I needed a cold shower after reading that!

If you have never read this genre before or a die hard fan, do yourself a favor and read this! Kate Canterbary is the queen of the smart, sassy, smutty words!

Blurb
From the New York Times & USA Today
bestselling author Nashoda Rose, comes a new, sexy standalone romance
novel. 
I finally have my shit together. FINALLY. Successful career,
new house, great friends and my good for nothing ex-boyfriend long gone.
I was looking for a safe, secure, picket fence kind of guy,
but instead I got the Irish you’re-not-ready-for-this Deaglan Kane.
Tattooed. Sexy. And totally unavailable.
I planned for us to be a fling. But Deaglan has other plans
and suddenly having my shit together is long gone.
Because my past is back full throttle and Deaglan Kane isn’t
who I thought he was.

 

Excerpt
I sighed,
hugging the pillow closer and waiting with baited breath for him to come back
to bed.
It was
Sunday and I didn’t have to work today, so I kind of hoped he’d do that thing
with his tongue again.
My body
quivered and I bit my lower lip.
He sat on
the edge of the mattress and without a single glance my way, he said, “Pet, I
have shit to do.”
I tensed.
Then the
daisy heads snapped off and the velvet petals shrivelled up in my belly.
Uh, what?
Suddenly,
that hot raspy Irish accent didn’t sound so hot.
Okay, I
wasn’t expecting a proposal or anything, not by a long shot, but I did expect a
morning kiss and a possible number exchange for a possible second date. Or rather first date.
He didn’t
even pretend like he’d call.
God, was I
that naïve?
I sat up,
taking the sheet with me. “Excuse me?”
He bent,
picked up his cargo pants from the floor and tugged them on.
“I have
shit to do, babe. I called a cab. It’ll be here any second.”
My heart
slammed into my chest. He called me a cab? Was I supposed to think this was
okay because he called me a cab?
Because it
wasn’t. It totally wasn’t.
There was a
brief honk outside.
Oh. My.
God. When did he call me a cab? When he had his finger in my ass.
