My Review…

Wowza, straight outta the gate this is a fast-paced, fast love story!

You get action, you get mystery and oh how you get the heat.

This is the story of Jason and Faith.  A chance meeting, a damsel in distress and then you get the swoons.

Faith is starting over, running from a past that is ugly.  She finds herself falling for an alpha with a possessive streak.

Jason is the epitome of alpha male.  He is handsome, he is a take-charge kind of guy and he sees a woman in need in Faith.  But he has scars of his own and he doesn’t want the feels that comes with knowing and wanting Faith.

I always enjoy reading Ms. Phillips stories and this is no exception!

Happy Release Day & Review!! A Lie for A Lie by Helena Hunting

See My Review Below!!

A sexy, heartwarming read!” —Elle Kennedy, New York Times bestselling author

A Lie for a Lie, an all-new sexy second chance romance from New York Times bestselling author Helena Hunting is available now!

Hunting-A Lie for a Lie-28155-CV-FT

From the New York Times bestselling author of the Pucked series comes a romantic comedy about instant attraction, second chances, and not-so-little white lies.

Sometimes I need an escape from the demands, the puck bunnies, and the notoriety that come with being an NHL team captain. I just want to be a normal guy for a few weeks. So when I leave Chicago for some peace and quiet, the last thing I expect is for a gorgeous woman to literally fall into my lap on a flight to Alaska. Even better, she has absolutely no idea who I am.

Lainey is the perfect escape from my life. My plan for seclusion becomes a monthlong sex fest punctuated with domestic bliss. But it ends just as abruptly as it began. When I’m called away on a family emergency, I realize too late that I have no way to contact Lainey.

A year later, a chance encounter throws Lainey and me together again. But I still have a lie hanging over my head, and Lainey’s keeping secrets of her own. With more than lust at stake, the truth may be our game changer.

My Review…

Hells yes!! Ms. Hunting is taking the readers back to her world of hockey!!

This is a spin-off from her wildly popular Pucked series.

This is the story of RJ/Rook and Lainey.  A chance meeting on the way to the Alaska wilderness.  A fantastic summer together and then circumstances separate them for a year.

Lies by omission and secrets are revealed as the story plays out.

Lainey is a fantastic character, even with her sheltered upbringing and some catastrophic events in her life, she has pushed through and become stronger for it.  She is a lovely mix of independent and fresh innocence to some things that makes her special.  I admired her strength, honesty and she was not afraid to tell the people that she loved what she wanted and needed.

Oh Rook, you swoony man! I could understand why he kept some of his world away from Lainey.  He wanted to finally be “seen” by a girl that he was really into. When his world gets flipped, he grabs what he loves and holds on tightly.  Who doesn’t love a hero like that?

Oh and the best thing!! Seeing past characters making an appearance! It was like a family reunion and it was wonderful catching up and seeing what was new in their world.  Now this doesn’t take away from the main story, it just adds more to it!

I am hoping for so much more from this world!

Happy Release Day & Review!! Falling For My Brother’s Best Friend by Piper Rayne

See My Review Below!!!

Let’s say you’re an independent, self-sufficient woman who runs the family company and you find yourself falling for your little brother’s best friend. Now, more than ever, you need to count all the reasons why you need to abandon falling.
Abandon Falling #1 – He’s a womanizer. Hasn’t had a serious relationship a day in his life and changes women more often than he changes his sheets.
Abandon Falling #2 – He’s never serious. He cracks one-liners, mostly at your expense.
Abandon Falling #3 – When things go wrong, he seems unfazed and always remains in control. It’s so annoying.
Abandon Falling #4 – He has tattoos. Lots of them. Everywhere. Not to mention, he owns a tattoo parlor. (Damn it! Why doesn’t that sound like a bad thing anymore?)
Abandon Falling #5 – There’s a growing list of how different you two are. You can’t get along for fifteen minutes—a lifetime together would land one of you in prison.
Keep repeating those reasons and drown yourself in work. Pretend you don’t notice his good qualities or how enticing he looks without a shirt, and do not, I repeat, do not agree to live with the man while your place is being repaired from flood damage.
Trust me, even the strongest of us can only forego temptation for so long.

My Review…

The Baileys 

Oh how I have waited for Savannah and Liam’s story, and Piper Rayne did not disappoint.

This story starts out fast, no long drawn out minutiae and I loved it!  You get to the good part, the day after…the fallout from the wedding!

Now if you haven’t read any of the stories in this series, don’t fear.  You can totally read this as a stand-alone, but trust me…you are going to want to read all of them.

I loved the reverse age gap!  As Savannah wrote in an autograph..”The future is female” and I embraced her girl power. It’s sad that there is still a stigma on the whole older woman, younger man and I admired that Piper Rayne wrote this story the way they did.

It was refreshing to see that Savannah has vulnerabilities.  I empathized with her feelings of being overwhelmed and losing herself.  Nobody really saw her.  Well nobody but Liam.

Oh Liam, this is a true man…he is fierce, he is flawed and he is the soft place for Savannah to fall when she needs him.  He too has his fears and he struggles with them just like everyone does.

Thank you Piper & Rayne for writing this story, heck for this whole family!  You have really outdone yourself with the town of Lake Starlight and all of it’s inhabitants.

Happy Release Day & Review! The Mogul and the Muscle by Claire Kingsley

See My Review Below!!!

Title: The Mogul and the Muscle
Series: A Bluewater Billionaires Novel
Author: Claire Kingsley
Genre: Contemporary/Romantic Comedy
Release Date: October 14, 2019

“I wanted this man’s arms around me, cocooning me in safety. I wanted to feel like I didn’t have to be brave for a few hours. I wanted to let him be my courage. My protection. My shield.”

 

Cameron Whitbury—billionaire aerospace mogul—can engineer her way out of any problem. Sure, she’s living with the threat of a potential sex scandal thanks to her lying ex. And that attempted mugging in her parking garage might not have been a random attack.

 

But she’s totally got this. Sacrifice her privacy to an overprotective bodyguard? No thanks. She doesn’t need a six-foot-five, motorcycle-riding, square-jawed, hazel-eyed man-beast shadowing her every move.

 

Jude Ellis—one-man security operation and professional problem solver—is ready to retire from the cloak and dagger stuff to live a normal life. He doesn’t need another client. Not even one with coppery-red hair and mile-long legs who looks hot AF in a sexy pair of heels.

 

To appease her worried friends, Cameron hires Jude as her bodyguard. And despite their feisty banter and their rampant—and totally inappropriate—sex fantasies, they’re both determined to keep it professional.

 

But as the danger to Cameron escalates, the heat simmering between them just might combust.
Author’s note: Big wall-of-man hero with a fierce (and growly) protective streak. Confident and snarky heroine. All the banter. Sex in a closet. And a daring rescue with a big, heart squishing HEA.

 

 

 

Heat, Heart, & Happily Ever After
 
Claire Kingsley writes sexy contemporary romance and romantic comedies. She loves sassy, quirky heroines, swoony heroes who love their women hard, panty-melting sexytimes, romantic happily ever afters, and lots of big feels.
 
She can’t imagine life without coffee, her Kindle, and the sexy heroes who inhabit her imagination. She’s living out her own happily ever after in the Pacific Northwest with her husband and three kids.

My Review…

A Bluewater Billionaires Novel

I love reading new to me authors.  I am loving this series about a group of vagillionares and their lives!

This is Cameron and Jude’s story.  You get excitement, you get a bit of mystery and oh the swoons!

Cameron is another fabulous lady boss! She is smart, she is successful and she has a target on her back.  I admired her strength and I flove the friendships she has.

Oh Jude, you strong, silent alpha! He doesn’t say much, but boy when he does!  He is trying hard to retire, but he just can’t say no to helping Cameron.

Once I started this story, I couldn’t put it down until the very end.  I kept trying to guess who was after Cameron and why!  Just when I think I have it figured out, Ms. Kingsley took me by surprise!  I love a story that keeps me guessing.

I am so glad I had the opportunity to read this! I am looking forward to seeing what’s coming next in this series and I plan to put Ms. Kingsley on my TBR list!

Your gonna love this story and this series!

Happy Release Day & Review! Awk-Weird by Avery Flynn

See My Review Below!!!

 

There’s more to me than just being awk-weird. I own my own flower shop, have some great friends, and I have my eye on adopting the most adorable kitten. But sadly, hot guys don’t tend to be blown away by my trivia-spouting, dorky self.
 
So, when a Thor-lookalike who happens to be a professional hockey player hits on me at my bestie’s wedding rehearsal party … You better believe I climbed that tree like a cat. And the face that it happened not once, not twice, but three times? Yeah, that’s pretty much a once-in-a-lifetime experience for a woman like me. 
 
There’s zero chance I’ll end up ever seeing him again…right? 
 
Until the pregnancy test comes up positive. What happens next?
 
Oh my God, I wish I knew…

My Review…

Ice Knights

Oh how I love this world that Ms. Flynn has created!

This is the awk-weird story of Tess and Cole.  An awkward meeting over a trivia game, random facts spouting and a hella hot hookup.

Tess is just precious.  I could sympathize with her go-to reaction of spewing out random facts.  I wanted to hug her hard after reading about her past and how she was shuffled along.  I too know how it is to make yourself small, to disappear into the wall to not make waves.

Cole, oh this hot mess of a man.  Such a stickler for consistency, but that is his “safe” place. I did want to shake him hard about his stubbornness with Marti, I mean come on! See what is in front of you!

Tess and Cole have sparks galore, but they also have insecurities and vulnerabilities that almost wreck their relationship.

With hilarious secondary characters and a spawn of satan cat, this story is one you won’t be able to put down until the very end!

Blog Tour!! Baking Me Crazy by Karla Sorensen

See My Review for this #mustread Here!!!

 

“Friends to lovers at its best– a sweet indulgence I couldn’t put down!” – R.S. Grey, USA Today Bestselling Author

Baking Me Crazy, the first in the romantic comedy Donner Bakery Series of standalones, from Karla Sorensen is available now!

20190718_DB01_Baking Me Crazy_Sorensen_KDP_FINAL

I’m Levi Buchanan, and until five years ago, I thought the legend of my family’s curse was a load of crazy, Southern nonsense.

No curse can make you fall in love at first sight. No curse can force a true, deep, passionate, all-consuming love that will haunt you all the days of your life.

Then I met Jocelyn Abernathy and I realized how completely wrong I was.

The problem is, Jocelyn guards her feelings like well-armed soldier. She’s the most beautiful, stubborn, infuriating woman I’ve ever met. Every time she talks, I want to kiss the living daylights out of her. But I can’t.

Because when we met, she didn’t need true love. She needed a best friend. And that’s what I’ve been to her… for five years.

But when Jocelyn meets a handsome stranger her first day working at Donner Bakery and she lets him buy her a dill pickle cupcake, I realize with ominous regret that I may have missed my window with my best friend.

If I can’t get her to see past our friendship, my new curse may be to watch the love of my life move on with someone else.

‘Baking Me Crazy’ is a full-length contemporary romantic comedy, can be read as a standalone, and is book#1 in the Donner Bakery series, Green Valley World, Penny Reid Book Universe.

Excerpt:

“Besides, this is my best friend perk. Shouldn’t I get perks in baked goods?”

She cut me a look. “You’ve been getting those perks for two years, Buchanan. Don’t even pretend you didn’t put on a solid ten pounds that first year I started baking.” Quite pointedly, she looked at my stomach, which we both knew was covered in muscle.

“That’s rude,” I mumbled under my breath. I flexed my bicep. Nero licked my elbow since it was right in front of him. “Yeah, ten pounds in my left arm maybe.”

The noise she made roughly translated to you are ridiculous. She made that sound at me a lot. Of course, the sad truth of the matter was that I was ridiculous.

Not once in the past five years had my feelings lessened for her. I had just learned to live with them. In my junior year of undergrad, I was taking a class on brain pathology in injuries, and a man came to talk to us about how he learned to live without his right arm after it was amputated.

He told us about how, even years after he lost his arm, his brain still triggered sensations to the limb that was no longer there. The adult brain, in particular, struggled to reorganize after the loss of a limb, and given that four out of five amputees suffer from phantom pain symptoms, some of which were incredibly debilitating, it was a lesson that stuck with me.

I wasn’t fool enough to think that me loving Jocelyn was on par with a man who’d lost his arm, but something about the way he talked plucked at a chord inside me. Sometimes my brain struggled to remember that we were just friends.

She’d never dated, never even hinted that she wanted to. She’d never given me a longing glance. Never stared at my mouth like she wondered what it tasted like.

But my hands never, not once, stopped wanting to reach for hers. My fingers always, always itched to dig into her crazy hair and see what the curve of her scalp felt like.

My brain knew what this relationship was, but sometimes, the signals it sent to the rest of my body didn’t always match up with the truth of our situation. We worked out together a lot, Joss and I, and when she got frustrated with the limitations of her body, I always wanted to wrap my arms around her.

I wanted to pull her into the curve of my body, absorb her dissatisfaction into my skin, and carry it for her. That was the irony when she made noises like that.

She had absolutely no clue how ridiculous I really was.

About Karla Sorensen

Karla Sorensen has been an avid reader her entire life, preferring stories with a happily-ever-after over just about any other kind. And considering she has an entire line item in her budget for books, she realized it might just be cheaper to write her own stories. It doesn’t take much to keep her happy…a book, a really big glass of wine, and at least thirty minutes of complete silence every day. She still keeps her toes in the world of health care marketing, where she made her living pre-babies. Now she stays home, writing and mommy-ing full time (this translates to almost every day being a ‘pajama day’ at the Sorensen household…don’t judge). She lives in West Michigan with her husband, two exceptionally adorable sons and big, shaggy rescue dog.
