USA TODAY Bestselling Author Claudia Burgoa pens a fun and sexy romantic comedy where playing pretend turns to playing for keeps…

We have to pretend that what we have is something like love…

I’m down on my luck.

Scratch that. This is the worst week of my life.

Enter the last person I want to deal with: Burke St. James.

He’s wealthy.

He’s a womanizer.

And a big liar.

And it turns out we need each other.

Burke needs a fiancée to seal the deal of a lifetime. I need help or my business is going belly-up. So, Burke very non-romantically asks me to marry him. Well, he asks me to be fake engaged to him, anyway.

I’ll attend a few dinners, pretend I’m in love, and meet the family.

In exchange, he’ll invest in my company and help me launch it off the ground.

All is easy, except his kisses feel more real than they should.

And the sex…damn, we’re not supposed to have sex.

It’s all for show…right?

Did I mention he’s a really good liar?

Pretending not to fall in love is more complicated than I thought.

My Review...

Oh the St. James family is at it again!

This is Burke and Chloe’s story…

Burke is a fixer, but he keeps his real self hidden behind the playboy facade. He is in a pinch and needs help. He is quite swoony and I loved his relationship with his siblings and family.  

Chloe, oh my! First off, love, love, love the name! (hee hee hee) I felt for her when she literally lost everything. I loved the fact that she was a terrible liar and she knew when to say when. She knew she had to protect her heart and she had to make amends to her family.

This slow burn, fast-paced story had me riveted. I was sad to see it end but I am hoping that clues that I feel were throughout the story means future stories for some of the secondary characters! I am not going to name, names but I think you will pick up on them too!

Way to go Ms. Burgoa! I can’t wait to see what comes next!

Blurb:

“This doesn’t have to be the end for us.”

Except it was.

 

What did we know about happily ever after at the age of eighteen?

 

Mason Braxter was a football legend—destined for glory far bigger than the confines of our small town.

Meanwhile, I had dreams of my own—a simpler life that included staying put and growing roots.

 

And all those plans of mine were going splendidly.

 

Until one drunken mishap a month before college graduation left me staring at two pink lines.

Then I was sharing custody with the most unlikely baby daddy.

We’ve figured out a system. Kind of.

I’m rocking this single mom gig. Mostly.

 

If only I could get a boost in the romance department.

 

As if summoned by my dry spell, Mason Braxter makes a sudden reappearance in Meadow Creek.

Six years have gone by, yet I can still remember every stupidly sculpted muscle on his body.

How easy it would be to fall back into old habits.

But I’m not that foolish girl anymore.

 

That doesn’t deter my all-star ex from trying to prove we can do it right this time.

For all his efforts, I might let him scratch my itch once. Maybe twice.

Definitely not thrice.

My Review...

Wowza…Ms. Rae sure does know how to write a swoony hero!

This is the story of Mason and Presley. I fell hard for both of these characters and Archie was just the cherry on top.

Mason was disillusioned by the life he was leading, he grudgingly chose his career over his girl. Now he is back to make amends, do some soul searching and fight for his real dream.

Presley is a strong, strong woman. She is independent, fierce and is rocking the single mom life. The only thing missing is a piece of her heart. I was enamored with her relationship with her baby daddy, it was a true co-parenting experience and I absolutely loved him.

I loved how Mason was fighting from the start, there was no wishy-washy back and forth for him to declare his intentions. He was straightforward and the way that he wooed his way back into Presley’s good graces was smexy as hell and so, so swoony!

You are going to fall in love hard with these two, I also like seeing past characters make appearances. They just added that bit of “reunion” feel that I like to have in the books I read.

Book Smart, an all new friends-to-lovers sweet romance by debut author Amanda Pennington, is LIVE in Kindle Unlimited!

Melanie Hirsch is tired of watching life pass her by…

I’ve spent the last few years watching my dreams of a writing career and true love fade away, settling for a dead-end job and denying my feelings for my best friend – until I find a list of dating advice for single women to “find a husband” in the 1950s. I decide to experiment: try out the 1950s advice on my 21st-century dating pool and write about the results. If love is timeless, some of the dating advice still holds value. Maybe my experiment will launch my writing career. Maybe I’ll get over my best friend and meet someone new. Either way, I’m done watching from the sidelines.

Cameron Whitacre can’t wait forever…

I’ve spent the last few years in love with my best friend, hoping she’ll notice my friendly overtures have more than friendly intentions – but before I realize what’s happening, she declares me her wingman for a dating experiment. This idea could launch her writing career, so I’m trying to be supportive. But her experiment turns my life into a desperation-fueled dumpster fire. I need to show her how I feel without jeopardizing our friendship, all before she falls for someone else.

‘Book Smart’ is a full-length contemporary romance and can be read as a standalone. Book #3 in the Work For It series, Educated Romance World, Penny Reid Book Universe.

My Review...

This story by debut author is fantastic right out of the gate!

This is a sloooow burn of a story and it was perfectly done.

This is the story of Mel and Cameon. Co-workers and friends. 

Mel is a go-getter. She is focused but sometimes can’t see the forest through the trees. She loves her little group of friends and decides she needs her friends help in a new idea for a book. She needed wingfolks for her “mancounters”.

Cameron is such a delicious find! He is one of Mel’s best friends, but he wants to be so much more. But things in his past have left some inner scars that sways the way he interacts with Mel.

The flow of this story is perfect and the subtle ways that Cameron showed how much he cared for Mel was so swoony. 

Secondary characters were perfect in their own ways, I am actually hoping that some of them get their own stories soon.

Again I say what a fantastic debut story from this soon to be well known author. (That’s my prediction…)

Worth the Chase Front Only copy

 

From USA Today bestselling author J.D. Hollyfield comes a heartwarming, laugh-out-loud romantic comedy about falling in love with your one-night stand. But of course, it can’t be that easy.

 

CHASE

Hit it and quit it.

One night is my limit, but after our night of passion, I would change my rules for another round with her. Shame, the only proof she even existed is the lingering scent of cherries and the damn smile I can’t get rid of.
 
Or so I thought.
 

BRIDGET

Losing the love of your life puts your whole world into perspective, especially when the one man who is supposed to protect you is the very man who took it all away. I’m done feeling betrayed. From now on I make the rules. And currently, my eyes are set on the tan, muscular, guy sitting at the bar. I don’t know him. He doesn’t know me. One night together is exactly what I need.
 
But when I open the front door to my cousin’s house, and I see him standing on the other side…that’s the moment everything gets complicated.

My Review...

What a fantastic new story by Ms. Hollyfield!

This is the story of Chase and Bridget.

First of all, Chase…this character is hilarious, swoony, and is good at eating crow. 

Bridget is a firecracker, she is really a gal that is coming into her own. 

Both have some scars from their past that have dictated their future, until the meet and oh my me how the sparks fly. Their chemistry is wowza hot and the smexy times are smokin!

I loved the bit of mystery, I loved the bit of suspense and action. It kept me turning the pages until the very end.

The secondary characters were funny and brought the extra to the story.

The only question I have is….what the hell is behind the locked door?!? I am hoping that mystery is answered in Ben’s story!

Blurb:

From USA Today and Amazon Charts bestselling author Meghan Quinn comes a brand new romantic comedy about a one-night stand gone completely wrong. Laugh out loud and steamy with a heart-stopping happily ever after.

I knocked up my best friend’s sister.

Figured I would get straight to the point because how it happened is a mere snippet of the story I have to tell. The real meat and potatoes is what happened after.

Let’s start with how she decided to inform me and Pacey the news . . . together. Imagine that nightmare. I was going into what I thought was a hockey marketing meeting and then BAM! I’m going to be a dad and my best friend/teammate is attempting to imprint my face with his fist.

It wasn’t pretty.

Threats were tossed around, friendships were revoked, and then I was marched up to her apartment, suitcases in hand, and forced to live with her so I could take care of her every need. Given how much I’ve pined for the girl, you would think that wouldn’t be a hardship. Wrong.

This is my one shot to win my teammate back. Pacey is the only family I’ve got, so hooking up with his sister isn’t a mistake I can make twice . . . despite the fact that she’s pregnant with my child.

But with every mood swing, every pair of pants that doesn’t fit right, and every late night run to find the perfect donut, I’m finding it harder and harder not to fall for my best friend’s little sister.

Especially when she kisses me…

Excerpt:

**ELI**

I’m a fun guy.

Some might say . . . neat.

A solid, trustworthy good time.

If you’re looking to have an amusing night out, I’m your man.

No drama.

No worries.

Just good old-fashioned fun.

I learned from a young age that life is short, and you have to fucking enjoy every second of it. So my rule is to say yes.

Say yes to as much shit as you can.

Hornsby, want to go to the pub down the street and get wasted with the locals?

Of course.

Hornsby, do you want to go skinny-dipping in the coach’s pool—when he’s home?

Absolutely.

Hornsby, do you want to fly to Vegas on our day off and run up the poker tables?

That’s a hell yes.

Living in the moment, that’s my motto, and up until now, that motto has served me well. It has taken me places I never thought I’d go. It has presented me with opportunities I never thought I would have.

But . . . and that’s a big but, a huge one.

This time, my yes has come back to bite me in the ass.

You see, it all happened on my birthday. We had an off day, high from a big win against the Calgary Barnburners. It was Valentine’s Day—yes, I’m a Valentine’s baby—and we went to the best singles bar in the city that would be crawling with women.

The drinks were flowing.

The conversations were engaging.

And I was by no means calling it a night anytime soon.

That’s when she walked into the bar.

In a hot pink dress that clung to every inch of her curvy body, she styled her platinum-blonde hair into long, silky waves, and the lipstick staining her gorgeous lips matched the color of her dress. There was no doubt about it—she was a total smokeshow.

Every guy she came within a ten-foot radius paused what they were doing to give her a very blatant once-over.

Unmistakably the hottest girl in the bar.

And as she saddled up next to me, unaware of my presence, it felt like the music stopped as she gently placed her clutch on the bar top. Casually, she leaned toward the bartender, her manicured nails drumming along the wood top as she sweetly asked for a gimlet with two lime wedges.

I was entranced.

I was hooked.

I was stolen for the rest of the night.

My mind wanted one thing.

Her.

She had my attention, and no one would steal me away.

No one would stop me.

Because in all honesty, I’ve had my eye on her for a while, ever since I met her two years before.

And that night . . . it was my chance. All excuses, all restrictions, they were tossed to the curb as I laid down the best tool at my disposal to get her to talk to me: it was my birthday.

And fuck, did we have a night. I can still remember the way her dress slid off her body as I held her in my arms. I can still vividly recollect that her lips tasted of lime and danger. And I can still smell her intoxicating perfume floating around me as I drove into her, one pulse after the other until we both came at the same time. Multiple times.

It was one of the best nights of my entire life.

But it had to end because we agreed it would be a one-night thing. So that morning, she slipped away undetected, and we both went back to our daily routine. Eat, sleep, and breathe hockey.

Was it the best birthday present I could ask for?

Absolutely.

Did she fulfill my every goddamn fantasy?

More than I could ever have imagined.

And if she came up to me and asked for more, would I oblige?

I would be hard pressed to say no.

Unfortunately, this isn’t a fairy-tale story of how my one-night stand turned into a romance for the ages, though.

Nope, that would be far too easy. This story, well . . . it exposes me as the man that I am. The man I feel to my very core. This is the story of how I wear the title “Ultimate Fuckup,” because not only did I accidentally get the girl in the hot pink dress pregnant . . .

But I broke bro code.

Because the girl in the hot pink dress is the sister of my teammate . . . and best friend.

My Review...

Can a hero be any more swoony? (Said in my best Chandler Bing impression)

Eli Hornsby, player extraordinaire, has got to be one of the swooniest heroes I have ever read!

This is the story of Eli and Penny. One night of passion (I love how Ms. Quinn wrote the scene!) leads to some long lasting effects.

I absolutely melted when I read Eli’s back story, his childhood is absolutely heartbreaking and I could so empathize with how he created this outer shell that he thinks everyone wants him to be.

Penny, oh you adorkable girl! She can get to the soft spots in Eli’s shell. She knows there is so much more to this man and she will do anything to help him see these “soft” spots are actually strengths. 

The chemistry between these two will melt your Kindles or burn up the pages depending on your reading preference. I loved how they were like two pieces that fit together so smoothly.

As always, Ms. Quinn gives the humor we have come to love in her stories. The secondary characters really bring the funny and the heart, I can’t wait to hear their own stories in the future.

Heart, heat and humor are the hallmarks of Meghan Quinn’s stories and this one is no exception!

Parks and Provocation, an all new enemies-to-lovers small town romance from Juliette Cross, is LIVE in Kindle Unlimited!

Lola Landry stares through the window of her locked car with the keys in the ignition and the radio blaring Beck’s “Loser.” While standing there and sweltering in the soupy Tennessee humidity, she wonders how her orderly life had crashed and burned so badly. Then her high school nemesis saunters up in all of his tall, strapping, fireman-to-the-rescue glory, slapping her with the humiliating proof that it can always get worse.

When the uber-confident Jedediah Lawson requests a date in return for popping her lock, a lightbulb goes off. Revenge is sweet. He would make the perfect victim—guest, that is—for her next podcast episode on Kiss and Tell. What shocks her is the casual way he not only agrees to the post-date interview on air, but ends up hijacking her audience and wooing them with his swoony, southern charm. Not even a low score on the date-o-meter can dissuade the man or keep her fans from demanding more of the charismatic Jed.

What’s worse, she secretly wants a second date with this man who is so different from his teenage self. His unwavering patience and dimpled smile erodes her will, until she breaks the Kiss and Tell rules by agreeing to a second…and a third date. It’s a disaster. Not the date. They’re wonderful. The disaster is that she is falling for a man she once dubbed Jockstrap Jed.

‘Parks and Provocation’ is a full-length contemporary romance and can be read as a standalone. Book #2 in the Green Valley Heroes series, Green Valley Chronicles, Penny Reid Book Universe.

My Review...

Green Valley Heros

I so love the Smartypants Romance world! They have introduced me to a fantastic group of authors! Ms. Cross is definitely one of them.

This story of Lola and Jedidiah, it is swoony, steamy and deliciously funny!

This is a story of high school nemesis between Coca Cola Lola and Jockstrap Jed. Teenagers with typical teenage hangups and insecurities.  Lola leaves after high school for college and a big new job in a big new city.

Time passes and Lola finds herself back in Green Valley, to lick her wounds and reset her life. Her big city job wasn’t all it was cracked up to be.

When Lola and Jed see each other again, the sparks fly off the pages! The chemistry between these two is molten hot and I loved the dual POV’s! The inner dialogue of Jed is phenomenal and Lola’s internal struggle was magic on the page.

Jed is a total dreamboat and I loved the patience and the determination in him to keep what he wants.

Lola is fantastic, she is trying to find her way in the world and overcomes herself to do it properly!

This story makes me want to be a part of the Green Valley community even more!

My Review...

I was so excited to hear that a new story was coming from Ms. Madden-Mills! I have been a long-time fan of hers.

This new story is all the things you love in a romance. This story of Nova and Ronin is a story of fate, timing, and finding your glow! There are so many things I loved about this story!

I loved Nova; she is beautiful, fierce and loyal to her family. I also loved her directness and honesty, but I especially loved it when she showed her vulnerabilities in returning home and facing her past.

Oh Ronin, what a broken soul he is. He finds himself in the small town of Blue Belle, coaching high school football, using this as a placeholder for his dreams of coaching college and eventually the NFL. His professional career as a baller was taken from him tragically, both physically and emotionally. He has his walls built high.

I loved their first meeting; it was both steamy and heartbreaking. I loved how coming together years later forged their relationship. I loved how they both leaned on each other for support. I loved the yellow roses and the meaning behind them! So. Much. Love!

I have never been disappointed by a story from Ilsa Madden-Mills, and this story is phenomenal!

What happens when the guy who’s afraid of love finds himself in it?
 
Know what they say about never mixing business with pleasure? Yeah, no.
The one about never sleeping with your boss?
I ignored it too.
I blame Aslan Spearman, the boss.
He’s a wealthy playboy who doesn’t believe in happily ever after.
He’s demanding, a workaholic, and cynical.
He’d rather have a root canal than be in a romantic relationship.
Do you want to know a secret? I think he’s afraid of love.
So when he has to go to the Spearman family reunion in Hawaii with his girlfriend, he’s in big trouble.
That’s what happens when you lie to your family about your relationship status.
It wasn’t important—until now.
What does he do?
He comes to me, his VP of Operations and right hand for assistance.
After all, I’m a problem solver.
Except my personal life is complete chaos.
So we make a deal. I’ll be his girlfriend if he helps me solve my problems.
It’s a win-win situation, right?
I mean, how hard can it be?
It’s not like I plan to fall in love.

My Review...

A new series from Claudia Burgoa? Sign me up please!

A spinoff but a totally stand-alone series starts off with a sweet and swoony story!

This is the story of Aslan and Keaton.

Aslan is part of the Spearman family and one of a set of triplets that have stepped up to help care for their younger siblings and mom after their father’s passing. He is focused on his work and depends on his VP for everything, eventually even his heart!

Keaton is Aslan’s girl Friday. She is his VP of operations and also has a full plate of taking care of her family, a family that has really treated her like an afterthought. She just wants to feel like she belongs someplace.

A fabulous and romantic tropical locale, a fake relationship…what could go wrong?

I love the flow of this story; Ms. Burgoa has a true talent not to drag a story out but make it just the right speed. I love how the relationship between Aslan and Keaton evolved, from co-workers and friends to so much more. I fell hard for Aslan; I loved his inner dialogue and how he finally has the epiphany of how much he loves and depends on Keaton in his world.

As an avid fan of Ms. Burgoa, it was lovely to see past characters make appearances. It was like an actual family reunion. I can’t wait for more from this series!

ABOUT LUCIFER’S SIN
They call him Lucifer for his wild side.
 
She called him the man she loved, she called him Luke. But then he proved he really is worthy of his nickname. Or so she thought. Nothing is as it seemed back then.
 
A man with a past. The only woman he has ever loved. Someone wants her dead. That someone is about to find out that yes, he is Lucifer when you dare to threaten his woman. Even if she doesn’t call herself that now. He does. But all he ever really wanted to be was Luke—the man worthy of her love.
 
 
EXCERPT

I open the door. Ana’s sitting on the edge of the bed, staring at the door. The instant she sees me, her lips part, and her eyes travel my body before jerking back to my face.

“You have to put a shirt on. You just—have to.”

My cock is pretty damn pleased with this reaction that says she wants me, but my brain is working overdrive, and for once, overpowering that plaything in my pants. “Why, sweetheart? You want to kiss the scar you gave me better? It’s too late for that. Or maybe, you want to lick me all over? You already did that. You don’t get to do it again. Not after trying to kill me.” I walk to the end of the desk where I left my gun, pick it up, and then lay down on the ground at the foot of the bed. My phone goes to the floor. The gun sits on my gut.

Ana moves to the end of the bed, and sits there, staring down at me. “What are you doing?”

I notice she avoids my name when she would normally do otherwise. I guess she just can’t figure out who I am anymore. Well, I know. And Lucifer fits. She knows, too. “I’m catching a few z’s, and protecting you from anyone that comes in the door. If it so much as jiggles, I’ll sit up and shoot.”

“It’s been a hellish night and morning. Lay on the bed. You can have the side closest to the door. Please.”

I glance up at her. “Sweetheart, if I get in that bed with you, I’ll have you naked in about thirty seconds, and while we’ll both enjoy that, you’ll just hate me for it after. Not to mention we won’t get any sleep.”

“I could say a lot of things to that response, but I probably shouldn’t. We’ll put pillows between us.”

“If you think a pillow will stop me from getting naked with you, you might have been right when you said you never really knew me, Ana. That was right before you shot me, right? I told you. I want to fuck you. I don’t want to sleep next to you.”

She buries her face in her hands and groans a frustrating sound and then glowers at me, all sexy and way too damn hot for my own good. “Fine, Lucifer. Sleep on the damn floor. Just do what you want.” She stands up and walks to the side of the bed before climbing on top.

She tosses a pillow down on top of me. I grab it and stick it under my head. “For the record, me down here and you up there is not what I want. It was never what I wanted, Ana. It’s just who we are now.”

“Yeah,” she says softly. “I know. “

That’s all she says and I want more. But then, I’ve always wanted more when it comes to Ana. And more was never enough.

My Review...

Welcome back to the world of Walker Security!

Ms. Jones hits us readers with a bang, with mystery, suspense, and oh my me, the heat!

Lucifer, Luke, Lucas, whatever you want to call him is an Alpha with a capital A! He has a dark past, and he sees Ana as his happy place until something tragic happens and Lucifer and Ana are no more.

Ana is a bad mama-jama! She was raised to fight her own battles and always to have control. When she meets Lucifer, she believes she finds someone she can give up control to.

When evil people want to hurt Ana, Lucifer comes back into her world with a vengeance. He has his reasons for “hating” Ana, but when death is knocking on Ana’s door, he does what he must do to ensure Ana is safe. 

A thin line between love and hate is the central theme in this story. How can you hate someone that you love just as much?

This is the start of a sure to be an exciting, smokin’ hot trilogy that I cannot wait to read more of!

Can Aaron love her, even when she can’t love herself?

Love on the Lake, an emotional small town, standalone romance from New York Times bestselling author Helena Hunting is live now!

Teagan Firestone has always been the dutiful daughter, especially since her mom died. But as her father finally begins to move on, it’s her turn to do the same. Her destination: Pearl Lake, a close-knit community with an entrepreneurial spirit and secrets of its own.

One of them is Aaron Saunders, who dropped out of college to work construction for Pearl Lake’s upper class. He’s a mystery and has a playboy reputation—that is, until he meets Teagan. Neither of them is looking for love, but in a town this small, it’s hard not to let your heart get involved.

As their romance heats up, Aaron’s elusive past comes to light and Teagan is there for him, bringing them even closer together. But when Teagan is forced to face her own demons, her inability to accept the support of friends and family threatens the life she’s worked so hard to build.

Can Aaron love her, even when she can’t love herself?

My Review...

Ms. Hunting does it again! 

The next chapter in this series is phenomenal! 

Now this story can be read as a stand alone, but I am telling you, do yourself a favor and read the series!

We briefly met both Teagan and Aaron in the first book, even then you could see the sparks! But now with their own story, the chemistry and love that comes off the pages is beautiful and so moving.

This is more than just a love story, this is a story of realizing your inner demons and fighting hard to stop them from taking over your life. Both Aaron and Teagan have those aplenty. This is a story of finding yourself and loving yourself first.

Teagan is a giver, a people pleaser, which she does too well, to her own determent. She struggles within herself and she doesn’t want to face the issues that she has.

Aaron leads a double life, and living in a small town doesn’t help. He tends to keep people at a distance, thinking that will help, but it truly doesn’t.

Aaron and Teagan’s relationship shows the true meaning of love, of acceptance and doing the hard things for the ones you love. 

There are some surprises and some demons come to light, and Ms. Hunting shows her writing talent in really bringing some real world issues into this story and doing so with a realism that is both heartbreaking and amazing.

I hope that there are more stories in this series, I can’t wait to read what comes next!
