The Hot Shot
by Kristen Callihan

I love this whole series and I couldn't wait for this book, all the books in this series can be read as a stand alones. 


Synopsis:
First we were friends. Then we were roommates. Now I want more... 
What can I say about Chess Copper? The woman is capable of bringing me to my knees. I know this about five minutes after getting naked for her.

No one is more surprised than me. The prickly photographer my team hired to shoot our annual charity calendar isn't my usual type. She's defense to my offense, a challenge at every turn. But when I'm with her, all the regrets and darkness goes away. She makes life fun.

I want to know Chess, be close to her. Which is a bad idea. 
Chess is looking for a relationship. I've never given a woman more than one night. But when fate leaves Chess without a home, I step up and offer her mine. We're roommates now. Friends without benefits. But it's getting harder to keep our hands off each other. And the longer we live together the more I realize she's becoming my everything.

Trick is... Now that I've made her believe I'm a bad bet, how do I convince her to give this player a true shot at forever?

I loved this book!!  I was completely sucked in from the beginning.  I loved the development of the relationship, from friendship to more.  Chess was such a different character, she was stubborn and sassy, and she cracked me up.  Finn Mannus is super swoony, but somewhat frustrating!!  There was a huge portion of the book where I wanted to scream at both of them.  I also loved getting a little bit of Dex and Fiona from the previous book.  This book is a great blend of sexy, sweeet and angst!  I highly recommend it.

This book is live and available now.

The Player
by K. Bromberg

I am a huge fan K Bromberg fan, so I was super excited to read this one.  This book made me swoon hard, reminiscent of Driven. 

Synopsis:
Easton Wylder is baseball royalty. The game is his life. His passion. His everything.
So, when an injury threatens to end Easton’s season early, the team calls in the renowned physical therapist, Doc Dalton, to oversee his recovery. Except it’s not Doc who greets Easton for his first session, but rather his daughter, Scout. She may be feisty, athletic, defiant, and gorgeous, but Easton is left questioning whether she has what it takes to help him.
Scout Dalton’s out to prove a female can handle the pressure of running the physical therapy regimen of an MLB club. And that proof comes in the form of getting phenom Easton Wylder back on the field. But getting him healthy means being hands-on. 
And with a man as irresistible as Easton, being hands-on can only lead to one thing, trouble. Because the more she touches him, the more she wants him, and she can’t want him. Not when it’s her job to side in the club’s best interest if he’s ready to play.
But when sparks fly and fine lines are crossed, can they withstand the heat or is one of them bound to get burned?

I fell instantly got Easton.  He was incredibly relatable and I loved him.  His struggles and how he deals with everything thrown at him, makes me want to hug him. I felt like Easton and Scout were a great match, they are both trying to live up to there fathers legacy.  I loved seeing the relationship progress and both of them figuring out who they really are. 

This is book 1 in a duet and it does end in a cliffhanger.  I loved this book and cannot wait for more, the end almost killed me!! 
The Player is available now!!  Purchase Link

Ain't He Precious
by Juliette Poe (Sawyer Bennett)

This is a sweet southern story that I really loved, Sawyer Bennett wrote this under the pen name Juliette Poe.  At first I didn't understand that, but I can honestly say it was like reading a book by a completely different author.

Synopsis
Welcome to Whynot, North Carolina, population 3,872. It has one stoplight, one bar, and the one-and-only Trixie Mancinkus.

Eleven years ago, Trixie graduated Harvard Law, turned down a job offer from one of the most prestigious law firms in Boston, and headed home to Whynot to open her own firm. Not only did she leave behind the big city, but she also left her boyfriend of three years. And just so we’re clear… that would be me.

So what am I doing in Whynot at this very moment? It seems Trixie needs help with a legal case and for some insane reason, she called on me for assistance. I’ve been in town for five minutes, and I’m every bit as out of place as I feel. Trixie is all sweet, southern curves to my tailored suits and high-priced haircuts. It’s a culture clash of north versus south and about the only thing we have in common is our physical attraction to each other.

But I have a new motto since coming to Whynot: When life hands you lemons, all you need is a little sex and sweet tea to make things better.

This is a sweet second chance story.  I loved all the characters.  Trixie is the epitome of southern belle.  And Ryland was a big city boy who never got over Trixie leaving him 11 years ago. 
If you are looking for a sweet second chance romance, this is a great one.  I can't wait for more in this series. 
This is available now.  Purchase Link

I am in love with Corrine Michaels and I have loved all of her books, and I couldn't wait for

Synopsis:
I spent twenty years waiting for Trent Hennington to open his eyes and see me. But it was all for nothing. He chose to keep himself guarded and let me walk away, proving that my time and efforts were wasted.

I'm done being invisible.




It's time to move on.

A single dance sets my new reality into motion, and I welcome it. After all, Cooper Townsend is perfect. He's kind, sexy, and attentive―everything a girl could want.

I thought I got it right this time.
That my heart could mend, and I would be happy.
Apparently, some things really are just too hard to walk away from

We met Grace and Trent in previous books, but this book can be read as a stand alone.  I loved the characters, and I loved that we got a little of the characters from the previous books.  I love the Hennington brothers, and I loved getting more of them.  Trent is definitely going to make it into my book boyfriend shelf.  I loved seeing Grace and Trents relationship progress, and seeing how they came together.  There was some heartbreaking parts, and some angst that made me want to scream at them both!!  
   
  This is available now and I highly recommend it.  All the Hennington brothers have a special place in my heart, and Trent is right in there!!!

A Boy Like You
by Ginger Scott

I adore Ginger Scott, and I loved this book from page 1. 

Synopsis:
They say everyone’s a superhero to someone. I’m not sure who I’m supposed to save, but I know who saved me.

We were kids. His name was Christopher. And up until the day he pulled me from death’s grip, he was nothing more than a boy I felt sorry for. In a blink of an eye, he became the only person who made me feel safe.

And then he disappeared.

Now I’m seventeen. I’m not a kid anymore. I haven’t been for years. While death didn’t take me that day, the things that happened left me with scars—the kind that robbed me of everything I once loved and drove me into darkness. But more than anything else, that day—and every day since—has taken away my desire to dream.

I wasn’t going to have hope. I wouldn’t let myself wish. Those things—they weren’t for girls like me. That’s what I believed…until the new boy.

He’s nothing like the old boy. He’s taller and older. His hair is longer, and his body is lean—strong and ready for anything. I don’t feel sorry for him. And sometimes, I hate him. He challenges me. From the moment I first saw him standing there on the baseball field, he pushed me—his eyes constantly questioning, doubting…daring. Still, something about him—it feels…familiar.

He says his name is Wes. But I can’t help but feel like he’s someone else. Someone from my past. Someone who’s come back to save me.

This time, though, he’s too late. Josselyn Winters, the girl he once knew, is gone. I am the threat; I am my worst enemy. And he can’t save me from myself.

This story was heartbreaking, and sweet, and totally confusing!  With each turn of the page I thought I had it all figured out, and then something else would happen.  I loved Wes/Christopher.  He challenges Jocelyn to be a better person and pushes her to be more.  And Jocelyn is troubled, but strong.  I loved how the relationship developed, and watching them both come into there own.  This story is heartbreaking at parts, and made me so sad.  This book made me feel the whole gamete of emotions, happiness, sadness, frustration, and confusion.  

This ends on a cliffhanger, but it does end with hope.  This is the first book in a duet, and I can't wait for the next book.  This is a YA book, so it's very innocent, but it invokes so much feeling.  This is live now!!

Cole
by Tijan

Cole is a spin off of Carter Reed, but can be read as a stand alone.  I am a huge fan, so I couldn't wait to read this one. 

Synopsis:
I shouldn’t have remembered him.

He was just a guy who walked through a restaurant. I didn't know his name. We never made eye contact. There was no connection between us at all.

But I could feel him.

The tingle down my spine. The command in his presence. The snap of tension in the air around him. That was the first time I saw him, and I was captivated.

The second time was different.

He was in the mysterious back elevator of my apartment building. Our eyes met for a fleeting second before the doors closed, and I was staggered. My breath was robbed. My senses on high alert. My body hummed.

That was just the beginning.

He was the leader of the mafia. I was about to fall in love with him, and his name…

Cole Mauricio.


I am a sucker for a dark mafia romance, so this one sucked me right in.  Addison broke my heart from the beginning.  Grief stricken from the death of her husband and just trying to move on.  Then she meets Cole, he is mysterious and dark, and she is drawn to him.  I love the twists and turns in this story.  Tons of surprises, and I loved the supporting cast as well.  The development of the characters is spot on, and completely consumed me.   

This book is available now, and I highly recommend it.  If you like dark, gritty, mafia romances, this is a great read.

Blush For Me
by Kristen Proby

I am a huge Kristen Proby so I was so excited to get my hands on this one.  This is the third book in the Fusion series. 


Synopsis:
As the take-charge wine bar manager of Seduction, Portland's hottest new restaurant, Katrina Meyers is the definition of no-nonsense, and she isn't afraid of anything. Well, almost anything: she hates to fly. When she's forced to travel on a death trap with wings, the turbulence from hell has her reaching for any safe haven—including the incredibly handsome guy sitting next to her.

Ryan "Mac" MacKenzie hasn't been able to get his sexy seatmate out of his head. The way she clung to him stirred something inside him he didn't think existed: tenderness. As the owner of a successful wine touring company, Mac thinks he's got a handle on what life can throw at him and he's not prepared for any surprises, especially in the feelings department. And when he brings a tour into Seduction, he sees the petite spitfire he just can't forget.

Mac is determined to discover what else they have in common besides fine wine and the inability to keep their hands off each other. But what will it take for two stubborn people to realize that what they have is so much more than a hot chemistry between the sheets and to admit to falling in love…?

We met Kat in the first 2 books and I loved her.  She's funny, take charge and has a kick ass style.  Kat meets Mac in the first chapter, and he was amazing,  sexy, kind, and completely smitten with Kat.  Kristen's books are always a light and fun read with some drama thrown in, and this one fits right in.  It is fun and sexy, and I love getting to know all the characters.  Kristen is so good and making you love the supporting cast as well as the main characters.  I can't wait for more from this series!!   

Blush For Me releases on March 7, but is available for pre order.  And if you pre order you will receive an early excerpt!!
