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!

Title: Irish Crown
Author: Nashoda Rose
Genre: Contemporary Romance

Cover Design: Sara Eirew Photographer & Designer

Model: Mike Chabot

Release Date: April 9, 2018

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.

It’s Live Early! Happy Release Day! Gentleman Nine by Penelope Ward

 

 

 

Amazon | iBooks | Amazon Paperback | Nook | Kobo | AUDIO Amazon | Audible

 

 

From New York Times bestselling author Penelope Ward, comes a new, sexy standalone novel.

 

Growing up, the three of us were friends.

He was the nerd.

I was the playboy.

She was the beauty.

 

Deep down, I only ever wanted her. I kept it inside because Rory and I made a pact that our friend, Amber, was off-limits.

He lied.

 

I went off to college, and he got the girl.

Amber never knew how I felt.

They were together for years—before he broke her heart.

 

Through it all and across the miles, she and I casually stayed in touch.

When my job sent me to Boston for a three-month contract position, Amber let me stay in her spare room.

 

Still reeling from her breakup, she’d sworn off men.

One night, I opened her computer to find the shock of my life. She’d hesitantly contacted a male escort company. Afraid to date and get her heart broken again, she was looking for sex with no strings.

Every emotion imaginable ran through me: protectiveness, jealousy—curiosity.

Amber had chosen Gentleman Number Nine and sent him a message.

She opened up to him, confessing, among other things, her physical attraction to her friend— me. But she considered me off-limits—and she thought I was a manwhore. (Ironic, considering the circumstances.)

Eventually, she set up a date to meet Gentleman Nine at a hotel.

When she showed up several nights later to meet him, she got the surprise of her life to see me standing there—with an offer I hoped she wouldn’t refuse.

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

toured internationally as a “WAG,” and her experiences inspire her writing.



Ellis’s love of romance began when she was 11 years old,

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.

My Review….

This is the debut novel from MV Ellis and what a fantastic start!!

This story of Arlo (love that name!) and London is a fast paced story with funny dialogue and steamy naughtiness too!

I like that London is a multi-racial character, no blonde with blue eyes here! I loved her drive and I understood her trepidation and guilt about her feelings for Arlo.  Although I wanted to smack her because it took her so long to admit to her feelings, she came through at the end!

Arlo is the epitome of a bad boy rock star, he was no holds barred with that alpha swagger.  At first I was thinking, what a jerk! But then as the story moved on I saw the swoon factor kick in! You will love him by the end!

I would have loved to see some chapters from Arlo’s POV, but it still was fantastic first story from MV!  I can’t wait to see what else she comes out with !

Squeeeee! (That’s excitement folks!) Currently Reading – Hero by Lauren Rowe

That’s right ladies! (And gentlemen, I am not one to discriminate!) I am so excited to be a part of the ARC crew for Lauren Rowe, author extraordinaire! So here I go, getting ready to dive in to her fabulousness!

See you on the flip side!!

My Review…

I am motherf*cking Smoke….

Whew! What an introduction.  When I first read All The Rage (and the numerous re-reads later) I have wondered more and more about this character, Smoke.  And T.M., being the genius she is gave us his book and I was floored, absolutely floored.

Gosh, I don’t even know where to start.  So excuse my rambling, but I just have to get everything out!

Well first off, I am so glad we got to read about past characters! They are secondary characters of course, but they come across so beautifully, so utterly them and it was like having a family reunion as I was reading! It was so good to “see” them again!

This story is about Smoke and Frankie Helburn…I flove her name! It’s just perfect!

Then of course we find out why Smoke became the man he is and it is heart wrenching!  To come through what he has and to be as “normal” as he is, is a testament to his strength! I love his nickname for Frankie, it flows so well with the story.

Frankie is a flawed genius, her own upbringing is just as tragic as Smoke’s.  I think that’s what makes her and Smoke fit together so well.

The chemistry between these two is white hot and classic T.M.!  This story has the twists and turns that leaves you begging for more!  It grabs you by the throat and tells you to keep reading until the very end.  The way a well written story should do!

And as I thank T.M. for yet another fabulous story, I just want to end by quoting one of my favorite lines in the book.  “He named the bacon….”
