Vince: A Marine Romance

Anchor Me book 2

Lisa Carlisle

She has a rule. He has two problems. But can one night lead to forever?

Emma: After my divorce, I was a hot mess. After catering a wedding, I ended up escaping reality for one night with a hot Marine.

Six months later, I discover the Staff Sergeant I’d been emailing for a work project is the same Marine from the wedding. And we’ll be working together over the next couple of weeks.

Awkward.

Vince in real life is even more irresistible than the sexy stranger at the wedding.

Too bad it won’t work. I have a rule: Don’t date men in the military. For good reason. Actually, two very big ones.

But maybe my fling with a Marine can turn into friends with benefits this second time around?

Vince: After a few weeks of training, I’ll be on leave–finally home in Newport for the holidays.

When I discover that I’ll be spending time with Emma, the caterer from my brother’s wedding, I’m intrigued by the diversion. The one thing I can’t resist is a puzzle and her behavior puzzles me.

Someone breaks into her apartment, and my interest grows into more than just a game. I want to protect her. I need to make sure she’s safe.

A challenge because:
1) I’m only around for the holidays.

2) She wants nothing to do with the military.

Is there any way we can make something work without it blowing up, leaving us both as casualties in the explosion?

 

 

If you like second-chance romances spiced with steam and suspense, read the Anchor Me series by USA Today bestselling author Lisa Carlisle. Navy SEALs, Marines, and hometown heroes — each who encounters his most complicated mission yet when a woman from his past challenges his plans for his future.

My Review…

Anchor Me Series

As a veteran and a military wife for 18 years, this book really resonated with me.

This is the story of Vince and Emma.

Emma, like me, was a veteran and a military wife.  Unfortunately, her marriage was not a good one.  Her first marriage was a very real downside of many military marriages.  It has left her with some understandably huge trust issues and her mantra of never dating a military man again.

Vince is the middle brother of the DeMarchis family.  He is a career Marine.  His job working with explosives, and losing members of his team has made him not want any type of long term, meaningful relationships.

Emma and Vince have an explosively steamy one night stand, and Emma runs after the fact.  Fast forward six months later and they are both in each other’s orbit again.  The attraction flies and the more they spend time together, the more their relationship grows beyond the physical.

I could empathize with both Emma and Vince.  Ms. Carlise is able to accurately tell a believable story.  Feelings are relatable and real and that’s coming from someone who has experiences like both of her characters!

Can’t wait to read Matty’s story next!

 

Happy Release Day & Review!! Boss in the Bedsheets by Kate Canterbary

See My Review Below!!!

 

bossinbedsheets-amazon_fb3131d2-df69-48ae-9701-e8b7cd02b752

 

SYNOPSIS:

Mr. Santillian,

Despite the fact I’m currently living out of your guest room and sleeping with you most nights, I am writing to announce my resignation effective two weeks from today.

In other words, I’ll locate someone who is both obscenely overqualified and willing to devote their days to the handful of tasks you are able to wrench from your perfectionist, micromanaging grip. It may be difficult to find a Nobel laureate genius looking for basic filing work on such short notice, but I’ll do my best.

Don’t worry about your sister’s wedding this weekend. I still plan to attend as your date, assuming you’ve finished hating me by then.

Thank you in advance for your understanding.

Zelda

Ms. Besh,

Resignation not accepted.

I’ll see you at home.

Ash

BOSS IN THE BEDSHEETS is a full-length steamy contemporary romance standalone.

My Review…

 

From pocket eggs to smartwatches, you get all the quirkiness, smarts, heart and heat from this new story from Ms. Canterbary.

This is the story of Ash and Zelda.  If you are a fangirl like I am, you know Ash from other stories in Ms. Canterbary’s world.

Ash is the straightlaced triplet, always feeling the need for control.  His tyrannical tendencies are thrown to the wayside when he meets the whirlwind that is Zelda.

Zelda is finding herself, after a devastating past and an abusive ex, she runs away to spread her wings and put the pieces of her mismatched parachute away.

As always with Ms. Canterbary, you get whip-smart dialogue that doesn’t talk down to the reader.  She creates a world and characters that you want so badly to be real.  Her stories teach me something every time I read them.  From archeology to accounting, and from embracing the messiness that is life and to the realness of loving someone for who they truly are and not trying to fit yourself or someone else into a shape that you think you should be. That’s what this story is all about.  I couldn’t put it down until the end and then I wanted to pick it back up and read it again!

T.M. (Tracey Marie) Frazier never dreamed that a single person would ever read a word she wrote when she published her first book. Now, she is a five-time USA Today bestselling author and her books have been translated into numerous languages and published all around the world.

T.M. enjoys writing what she calls ‘sexy wrong side of the tracks romance’ with morally corrupt anti-heroes and ballsy heroines.

Her books have been described as raw, dark and gritty. Basically, what that means, is while some authors are great at describing a flower as it blooms, T.M. is better at describing it in the final stages of decay.

My Review…

The Pawn Duet…

While waiting on pins and needles for this finale to another phenomenal duet by Ms. Frazier, I can totally understand her reasons for holding off until now.

While the subject matter is such a fiery topic, this story is more about the love between Pike and Mickey.  The love that overcomes everything.

I empathized with Mickey’s mental instability.  I applauded her bravery and her constant in Pike.

Pike was absolutely amazing in his possessive need for Mickey, in all her forms and vulnerabilities.  In her strengths and weaknesses, he is there for her always.

With Logan’s Beach as the backdrop of this story, the reader is brought again to the gritty world that Ms. Fraizer has created and continues to amaze us with. There are twists and turns and a hella big surprise that you won’t see coming!

Get your hands on this duet! You will not be sorry!

Happy Release Day & Review! Make Me Hate You by Kandi Steiner

See My Review Below!!!

“This is a return to the Kandi Steiner of 2016 who brought us Weightless and A Love Letter to Whiskey. Prepare for the burn.” — Author Sarah E. Green

Make Me Hate You, an angsty, emotional stand-alone romance from bestselling author, Kandi Steiner,is LIVE!

If he kisses me right now, I’ll drown.

Every sip of air is shallow and burning, because in the arms of my best friend’s brother, I’m the closest I’ve ever been to sin.

His eyes flick to my lips, and I remember the first time I tasted him, seven years ago before I left this town and vowed never to return. His hands grip my waist, and I remember the pain when he rejected me, when my entire world crashed down at his command. His jaw clenches, and my senses come alive with one stinging reminder.

I’m not his to kiss, and he’s not mine.

I tried to stay away from Tyler Wagner, putting an entire country between us. But when his sister’s wedding brings us back to the same town, to the same house, I can’t avoid him, no matter how hard I try.

He’s always there, his dark eyes bewitching, luring me into their depths. The memory of us pulls me under like a rip current, and when he flashes that smile, I lose my breath, along with my will, unable to escape his grip and find the surface.

Now, hours before our plus ones arrive for the wedding, I’m in his arms, begging him to make me hate him, knowing he never could.

If he kisses me right now, I’ll drown.

And I’ll take him down with me.

Make Me Hate You is a best friend’s brother romance that will have you on the edge of your seat from start to finish.

Excerpt:

Seven miles and an hour later, and all the anxiety I’d felt the night before was completely gone.

At least, until I rounded the foyer into the kitchen and saw I wasn’t the only one up early on Sunday morning.

Tyler sat at the kitchen island, still in his navy blue sweat pants and simple white t-shirt, with one foot planted on the ground and the other hooked casually on the lower bar of his stool. His hair was an absolute disaster, the boyish waves sticking up this way and that. He had both hands wrapped around a mug of hot tea, his eyes focused on the iPad he had propped up in front of him, and BlueTooth headphones in his ears.

At first, he didn’t notice me, and I slowed my steps, standing silently at the entry of the kitchen and watching him. I’d done everything I could last night to avoid his gaze, to not look at him, and now that I had a stolen moment to observe, I found my chest tightening again, my mouth dry and sticky.

His brown eyes were hidden beneath bent brows, expression serious as he watched whatever was on the screen. Small lines creased the edges of his eyes — lines that weren’t there when we were kids. He’d grown into a man somehow, overnight, it seemed. Then again, it had been years.

I’d seen him on social media, watched from afar as his YouTube channel took off. I’d seen pictures of him on Instagram — traveling through Europe, hiking in Australia, swimming in hot pools in Iceland. I didn’t follow him, of course, but his profile was public, which allowed me to flip through picture after picture on the nights when I was a pathetic mess.

But, pictures and videos didn’t do justice to the actual man who sat studiously at that kitchen island.

He was something between the boy I used to love and the man I’d never know, familiar and unreachable all at once.

Tyler shook his head at something, letting out a frustrated sigh and kicking back the bar stool a little before taking a sip of his tea. His eyes flicked to me then, back to the screen, and then, he did a double take, this time fixing his gaze on me and leaving it there.

Something changed in his eyes when he looked at me, like a shadow passed over them and held him captive. I was dressed in jogger shorts and a modest tank top, but from the way he watched me, I might as well have been completely naked.

That’s what his gaze did to me, what it always had done.

It stripped me bare.

About Kandi:

Kandi Steiner is a bestselling author and whiskey connoisseur living in Tampa, FL. Best known for writing “emotional roller-coaster” stories, she loves bringing flawed characters to life and writing about real, raw romance — in all its forms. No two Kandi Steiner books are the same, and if you’re a lover of angsty, emotional, and inspirational reads, she’s your gal.
An alumna of the University of Central Florida, Kandi graduated with a double major in Creative Writing and Advertising/PR with a minor in Women’s Studies. She started writing back in the 4th grade after reading the first Harry Potter installment. In 6th grade, she wrote and edited her own newspaper and distributed it to her classmates. Eventually, the principal caught on and the newspaper was quickly halted, though Kandi tried fighting for her “freedom of press.” She took particular interest in writing romance after college, as she has always been a die-hard hopeless romantic, and likes to highlight all the challenges of love as well as the triumphs.
When Kandi isn’t writing, you can find her reading books of all kinds, talking with her extremely vocal cat, and spending time with her friends and family. She enjoys live music, traveling, anything heavy in carbs, beach days, movie marathons, craft beer, and sweet wine — not necessarily in that order.

My Review…

Well, the queen of angst has done it again with this story!! Ms. Steiner is going to take your heart, stick it in a blender, set it to frappe, and let it spin…..then she is going to stitch it back together again.

This story of Tyler and Jasmine is poignant and sometimes it hits upon subjects not very popular, but to me, it’s real and honest and sometimes that makes things a bit blurred and a bit ugly, but needed to add more to the story.

The torment and the vastness of the love between these two characters bleed from the pages and I didn’t know whether to laugh or cry.  This story is going to take you on an emotional journey that only Kandi Steiner can write.

Beautiful locations, beautiful memories, and writing of such clarity you can actually “see” yourself in the world that Ms. Steiner has created!

Well done! And get your hands on this!

Eighth Circle.

Also known as Gabriel Dane.
 
He is a ray of sunshine that warms your heart with kind eyes and a dazzling smile.
Don’t let him fool you with that silver tongue or lure you in with a body that draws every woman’s eye. This man is fluent in deception and a devil who only offers pretty lies.
Gabriel is my old nemesis.
I’m the girl that always fought back.
He has every reason to hate me as much as I hate him.
 
Now that he found me, he’s determined to make me pay for our past.
Except, there are two small details Gabriel doesn’t know that will be his ultimate downfall:
There are no rules when it comes to our war.
And I’ve learned to lie just as good as him.
***Each novel in the series depicts a unique romance, but the plots through each book connect in one world. For the best experience, read the series in order.
Nine Standalone novels. Nine dangerous men. Nine unrepentant sinners you’ll hate to love.

My Review…

 

 

Antihero Inferno #2

These Inferno men just get better and better! This next book just expands the world that Ms. White has created and sucks you in even harder.  The mystery, intrigue, and steaminess is abound in this second book.

This is  Fraud’s story.  The silver-tongued devil himself Gabriel and his ongoing war of pranks and words with Ivy.

From childhood, the clashes between them have developed from childhood pranks to some downright shady and hurtful things. But the two of them continue to be a thorn in each other’s sides over the years.

When the Inferno decides it’s time for Ivy to pay the price for the favor she was given, well the sparks fly anew between her and Gabriel.

A thin line between love and hate is the absolute definition of the relationship between Ivy and Gabriel and I couldn’t put down this story.  I caught myself cheering for each of them throughout the story and then feeling heartbroken for both of them as well.

Ms. White has a magical talent to her writing, each book in this series is flawless in its flow.  It’s seamless in the timelines and each story brings more answers to the great mystery that surrounds all the characters in this story.

I cannot tell you how excited I am to read the next story in the series, hell all of the stories!

My Review…

The Baileys

I just get more and more invested in this family! This dynamic duo has the writing magic that really brings the reader into the world of Lake Starlight and makes you want to belive the inhabitants are real and a part of your own.

I have been waiting, not so patiently, for this story of Juno and Colton. You get to read about them in the periphery of the other books in this series, but now we get the more!

This story is sweet and oh so spicy! The long friendship, the move to the more in Juno and Colton’s relationship is a delight to read!

You can feel the apprehension in Juno, and the determination in Colton. You can feel how intertwined these two are in each other’s lives. They have a history that is absolutely heartwarming and sometimes heartbreaking.

There are twists, turns and surprises abound in this story! You are going to be amazed, I know I sure was!

Each book just vested me more and more as a true fan of Piper Rayne’s writing talent and the amazing ability to effortlessly meld two great writers into a stories that flow beautifully!

Happy Release Day & Review! Surrender by Rachel Van Dyken

See My Review Below!!!


From #1 New York Times bestselling author Rachel Van Dyken comes the next standalone rockstar romance in her Seaside Pictures series…

Surrender is now live!

 

I had his posters on my wall when I was sixteen and when I accidentally got pregnant in high school—his was the face I dreamt of when I closed my eyes at night.

Now, over twenty years later, that dream’s turned into a reality.

Not only is Drew Amhurst in my tiny town of Seaside, live and in the flesh…

But he’s mentoring my rockstar son.

Drew says he’s mine for a week.

And he made me three promises.

“No strings attached.”

“No falling in love.”

“It’s only seven days.”

He’s confident that he can help me rediscover myself both in and out of the bedroom, and I’m confident that he’s too arrogant for his own good.

And at the end of seven days, he swears he’ll walk out of my life the way he came into it.

The only problem is, the more I get to know him, the more I want to surrender the last pieces of my heart and beg him to stay.

My Review…

This is the first book in this series that I have read and can truly say that this can be read as a standalone, but now I want to go and read the whole series.  After reading this, you will too!

Surrender is the story of Drew and Bronte.  Two more mature characters with life experience and wisdom that shapes them to the people they are.

Bronte is a single mom, she had her children early in life. She totally missed out on the fun and foibles of her teenage years because of motherhood. But she took to motherhood like a champ and raised some exceptional kiddos, with no help from an ex.

Drew…oh my swoon…he is determined to help Bronte get her groove back in any way possible.  He is the epitome of a long term rock star that has changed his ways but feels like his baggage is his alone to carry.  But Bronte wants to help him unpack all that negativity.

What once started as a short term relationship was beautiful to read as it became so much more!  The dialogue was full of wit and heat and I couldn’t put this story down until the very end! Now I am going to go buy the rest of the series to see all the stories from the secondary characters in this one!

Happy Release Day & Review!! Loud Mouth by Avery Flynn

See My Review Below!!!


Release Date: June 22


 

I never meant to say a word, not one single word.

But I did.

Now because of something I leaked—without even realizing it—I’ve inadvertently broken up one of the Ice Knights’ most legendary bromances. And worse—I’ve kicked hockey star Ian Petrov’s grumpy level to insane levels of grump.

And what could make it worse? How about the two of us being trapped together in a remote cabin after a massive blizzard. Neither of us can leave. Just us, the snow, his resentment, and OMG sexual tension so thick it would take a snowplow to break through it.

I’ve got to get out of here before I do something even dumber than I’ve already done and kiss the sexy with his misplaced anger and perfect pecs. That would be the worst, the absolute worst. But… would it be terrible if we gave in? Just a little? It’s not like we’re ever going to have to spend time together again. 

Until the next morning when we’re told we have to play chummy for the press until this news cycle blows over. 

F.M.L.

My Review…

Ice Knights

This was the story I had been waiting for in this series!

This is the story of Ian and Shelby.

Take a cabin, a whole mess of chemistry and two beautifully quirky characters, and watch the pages melt with humor, heat, and heart.

Shelby is such a complicated and enduring character! The struggles and triumphs she goes through are so commendable! It made me in awe of her, she was a complicated puzzle that Ian could only figure out.

Ian, whew, this fella is also complicated.  To the surprises about his family and living in the shadow of his father, his whole life has truly molded him into the man he is.  He is the epitome of “silent waters run deep”. There is so much more to him than what he reveals to the world.  And Shelby is the lucky soul that gets to have him!

I have so much love for this series!  Each book can be read as a standalone, but do yourself a favor and read them all!!

My Review…

This series just gets better and better! Ms. Lind’s confidence in her writing has grown with every new book she releases.

This is the story of JJ and Riley.

When a surprise knocks JJ off his axis, it’s Riley that comes in to save the day.

The chemistry between these two is wicked hot.  Their spark lights up the pages.

Riley is such a giving soul.  She is just what JJ needs to tame his playboy ways.  I admired her flirty banter and take-charge attitude when it comes to what she wants.

JJ is just swoony! Yes, he’s a former playboy, but his dirty talk is on point and when he realizes what a treasure Riley is, he is determined to make Riley his own.

This a sweet, slightly angsty story that really pulls the reader into the world that Ms. Lind has created. It was lovely seeing past characters make appearances! Don’t be discouraged by that last sentence, this can totally be read as a standalone! Fans who have read Ms. Lind’s previous stories will see small glimpses into other characters.

My best friend and I were inseparable as kids. That childhood bond turned to puppy love, and then pure, burning lust.

But all that changed when our club found out her dad was a rat—an FBI informant trying to take down our empire.
He betrayed his club.

He betrayed her.
He betrayed us.
To tarnish the brotherhood legacy with such disloyalty and dishonor comes with swift retribution.

My Review…

Grab your helmets and prepare for the ride of your life!

This is the story of Alec (Animal) and Drew. Childhood friends, best friends that slowly became more over the years until young love turned into true love. To be able to find your soul mate that early in life is amazing. And written beautifully by Ms. Dukey.

Drew is a true child of a biker club, she is tough, she is fierce and she knows how to handle the intricate life of being a child of a club member.  Her saving grace is her friendship with Alec and it was refreshing to see when Alec knew when to come to her “rescue” and when to stand back and watch her take care of herself.  That to me is a true man!

Alec/Animal is club royalty.  He is the prince of this charter of the MC. He knows where his future lies and that is with Drew. When circumstances change and loyalties are tested, Alec truly becomes Animal. He becomes what he feels he needs to, to endure the loss he feels. He becomes the new king and he thrives in it.

As always, Ms. Dukey takes the reader and brings them in the world of her making.  I felt truly immersed in the life of the MC and the dangers and family meaning behind it.

A bit of thriller, mystery and intrigue will keep you guessing until the end and what an ending it is! I can’t wait to see what comes next!
