Until Sage
by Aurora Rose Reynolds

I am a huge Aurora Rose Reynolds fan.  She writes great alpha males, with fun female characters, with just enough angst.  And this one fit right in!

Sage Mayson had Kimberly Cullen once, and the memory of that brief encounter has tortured him since the moment he pushed her away. He should have followed his gut, but he didn’t, and now he’s left watching the woman he wants more than anything from afar.

Kimberly vowed to protect her heart from Sage, but when her sister is murdered and her world starts to fall apart, he’s the one person she finds herself leaning on.
Getting a second chance is something Sage knows is rare. He’s not going to squander the one he’s been given, and he won’t take no for an answer when it comes to making Kim his.

But what Sage doesn’t know is Kim has a secret that could leave them both devastated and heartbroken.

We met Kim and Sage in Until Ashlyn, but this book can be read as a standalone.  I fell in love with Sage from the beginning, and Kim was a sweet and loveable girl.  Sage had the right amount of Alpha, without being a jerk.  This sucked me in from the beginning and I devoured it.  I can't wait for more!  Another BOOM!!
This book is part of a series, and I love the whole thing, but this can be read alone.  There was the right amount of drama and angst, and it kept me completely enthralled.  This is live today and I highly recommend it!!

Lost Rider
by Harper Sloan

Lost Rider is the first book in a new series by Harper Sloan.  I am a huge Corps Security fan, so I was excited when I heard about this one. 
In Lost Rider, the first Western romance in New York Times and USA TODAY bestselling author Harper Sloan’s Coming Home series, an injured rodeo star encounters an old flame but will she be just what he needs to get back in the saddle?

Maverick Austin Davis is forced to return home after a ten-year career as a rodeo star. After one too many head injuries, he’s off the circuit and in the horse farming business, something he’s never taken much of a shine to, but now that it’s his late father’s legacy, familial duty calls. How will Maverick find his way after the only dream he ever had for himself is over?

Enter Leighton Elizabeth James, an ugly duckling turned beauty from Maverick’s childhood—his younger sister’s best friend, to be exact, and someone whose heart he stomped all over when she confessed her crush to him ten years back. Now Leighton is back in Maverick’s life, no longer the insecure, love-stricken teen—and Maverick can’t help but take notice. Sparks fly between them, but will Leighton be able to open her heart to the one man who broke it all those years ago?

Written in the vein of Diana Palmer and Lindsay McKenna, this Texas-set series is filled with sizzle, heart, and plenty of cowboys!

This is definitely a western romance.  I adored the characters from the very beginning.  Leighton was fun and sassy, and she cracked me up.  But also broke my heart just a little bit.  And Maverick was sexy and troubled, and he came across as a douche in the beginning, but I quickly fell for him.  This is a great second chance romance with tins of back story!  This story has all the fells.  Tons of heartbreak, and new beginnings.  It also introduces us to several new characters I can't wait to get more of!!! 

I really enjoyed this book and can't wait for more in this series.  It is sexy and fun, and lots of swoon!!  This book releases tomorrow, and is available for pre order now!

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. 

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. 

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.

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

Say I'm Yours
by Corrine Michaels

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

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. 

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!!

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. 

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. 

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!!

There is also a giveaway for a $50 GC to Amazon, so make sure and enter!!

The Wright Brother
by KA Linde

This is the first book in the new series by KA Linde and I loved it, I can't wait for more. 

I'd dated his brother.

He didn’t remember and I wish I could forget.

I may have sworn off the Wright family a long time ago. But when I returned home, Jensen Wright crashed into my life with the confidence of a billionaire CEO and the sex appeal of a god. Even I couldn’t resist our charged chemistry, or the way he fit into my life like a missing puzzle piece.

Too bad he’d forgotten the one thing that could destroy us.

Because Jensen Wright doesn’t share. Not with anyone. And if his brother finds out, this could all go down in flames.

When it all was said and done, was he the Wright brother?

This book sucked me in from the beginning.  I loved Emery.  She is a smart no nonsense girl that knows what she wants.  And Jenson was sexy and arrogant, but he also pissed me off for quite a bit of the book.  However, he came around.  I loved the family dynamic of the Wright family.  The secondary characters in this story were awesome.  I can't wait to read more about the whole family.  And, the cover is smoking.  It is sexy without being tacky, I love it. 
This book is available now and I highly recommend it.  The next book in the series is called The Wright Boss and is die out in May!
Sweet Rivalry
by K Bromberg

This is a novella about new people we haven't met before.  This is a stand alone.

Ryder Rodgers had a plan.

He was going to stride into the conference room, do the required song and dance over the next five days, and win the biggest contract of his career. But when he walked in and heard the voice of one of his competitors, all his plans were shot to hell.

Harper Denton. She was always on top. In college. First in their class. Always using every advantage to edge him out to win the coveted positions. The only one who could beat him. His academic rival. More like a constant thorn in his side. And his ego’s.

When he heard her voice, he was brought back to years before. To the bitter taste of being second best. But the woman who meets his gaze is nothing like the drab wallflower he used to know. Hell no. She was all woman now: curves, confidence, and staggering sex appeal. And no doubt, still brilliant.

The fact that she’s gorgeous and bright won’t distract him. Thi
s time, Ryder’s determined to be the one on top. But not if Harper can help it.

This is a novella, but she packs a lot of story into 120 pages.  I loved the banter between Ryder and Harper.  He is a sexy, bearded AND tattooed.  And she is confident and funny.  If you are looking for a light, fun and sexy read, this is a great pick!!

Sweet Rivalry is fun, and has the right amount of angst.  I highly recommend it, and it is available now!

Royally Matched
by Emma Chase

I am a huge fan of Emma Chase and I loved the first book in this series so I was super excited to read this one!

Some men are born responsible, some men have responsibility thrust upon them. Henry John Edgar Thomas Pembrook, Prince of Wessco, just got the motherlode of all responsibility dumped in his regal lap.

He’s not handling it well.

Hoping to help her grandson to rise to the occasion, Queen Lenora agrees to give him "space"—but while the Queen’s away, the Prince will play. After a chance meeting with an American television producer, Henry finally makes a decision all on his own:

Welcome to Matched: Royal Edition.

A reality TV dating game show featuring twenty of the world's most beautiful blue bloods gathered in the same castle. Only one will win the diamond tiara, only one will capture the handsome prince’s heart.

While Henry revels in the sexy, raunchy antics of the contestants as they fight, literally, for his affection, it’s the quiet, bespectacled girl in the corner—with the voice of an angel and a body that would tempt a saint—who catches his eye.

The more Henry gets to know Sarah Mirabelle Zinnia Von Titebottum, the more enamored he becomes of her simple beauty, her strength, her kind spirit... and her naughty sense of humor.

But Rome wasn’t built in a day—and irresponsible royals aren’t reformed overnight.

As he endeavors to right his wrongs, old words take on whole new meanings for the dashing Prince. Words like, Duty, Honor and most of all—Love.

We meet Henry in book 1 where is he is forced into a position he is not at all prepared for.  At the beginning of this book, he is drowning.  I wanted to hug him!  Henry never wanted to be king, and he is struggling greatly!!  And Sarah is a sweet, innocent girl that automatically grabs his attention, even when he should stay away,
I loved seeing Henry and Sarah evolve and find themselves.  They both came into there own, not only with each other, but individually as well. 
I highly recommend this whole series.  Both books are sexy, funny, sweet, and moving.  You must read both books, and there is another one coming!!  I can't wait!

Fake Fiancee
by Isla Madden Mills

I am a huge fan of this author so I was excited for a new one from her. 
They say nothing compares to your first kiss, But our first kiss was orchestrated for an audience. Our second kiss . . . that one was REAL. He cradled my face like he was terrified he’d f*ck it up. He stared into my eyes until the air buzzed. Soft and slow, full of sighs and little laughs, He inhaled me like I was the finest Belgian chocolate, And he’d never get another piece. A nip of his teeth, his hand at my waist . . . And I was lost. I forgot he was paying me to be his fake fiancĂ©e. I forgot we weren’t REAL. Our kiss was pure magic, and before you laugh and say those kinds of kisses don’t exist, Then you’ve never touched lips with Max Kent, the hottest quarterback in college history.

I really enjoyed this book, and there is much more to the story than the synopsis implies.  I adored both characters.  Max is a hero, and sexy, and a bit of a douchebag.  And Sunny was strong and independent, and I loved her.  She was not afraid to stand up to the Quarterback.  There is a ton of history with these characters, and I highly recommend this book.  It is light and sexy and fun.  And I am probably in the minority when I say this, but I don't love the cover, so please don't let that sway you.  You should still read this book!! 

This book is live and available now, and is only $.99 right now, so grab it quick

by Aly Martinez

Singe in the first book in a new series by Aly Martinez.  I have loved her other series so I was very excited to read this one. 

She was my nightmare. Every time I closed my eyes, I watched her fall into that inferno. Over and over, I failed to save her.

I hadn’t been able to reach her, and the guilt only burned hotter over time. Four years later, I was the unreachable one.

Heroes aren’t always saints. Sometimes, we’re nothing more than jaded sinners driven by sleepless nights and hearts full of darkness.

And then I met her. She was a dreamer who managed to soothe my scars and heal my wounds.

But, as the flames closed in around us, I feared I wasn’t the right man to save her. That is until I realized she was the one woman I’d burn the world down to protect.

This book was heartbreaking and sexy and I loved it.  It sucked me in from the beginning.  Jude and Rhion were such great characters.  Both flawed and a little broke, but also strong and destined to be together. 
Singe is fast paced and suspenseful with a little twist thrown in.  This is the first book in a new series, and I can't wait to see where it goes from here.  There are so many great characters in this story, I am excited to get more insight into them. 

Singe is the first book in this series, but it is not a cliffhanger.  It is available now and you should definitely read it, I highly recommend it!!

by LJ Shen

Defy is the prequel to Vicious, the first book in the Sinners of Saint series.  This is a novella and can be read as a standalone. 

My name is Melody Greene, and I have a confession to make.
I slept with my student, a senior in high school.
Multiple times.
I had multiple orgasms.
In multiple positions.
I slept with my student and I enjoyed it.
I slept with my student and I’d do it all over again if I could turn back time.
My name is Melody Greene, and I got kicked out of my position as a teacher and did my walk of shame a la Cersei Lannister from the principal’s office, minutes after said principal threatened to call the cops on me.
My name is Melody Greene, and I did something bad because it made me feel good.
Here is why it was totally worth it.

I fell in love with this book right away.  It is sexy and forbidden, and I loved the characters.  Jaimie was a dirty talker and Melody was funny, and a little lost, but she was also a strong heroine.  This is a novella, but it has a ton of story to it.  It is fast paced and super hot!  I highly recommend this book, and I can't wait for the other books in the series. 
Defy is available now and is only $.99 for a limited time, so grab it quick!

Lucian Divine
by Renee Carlino
This is a different genre for Renee Carlino and I was very intrigued.  I love this author, and I was very curious where this book would go.  
“My guardian angel is a drunk.”

Evelyn Casey’s life is at a standstill. She’s in her mid-twenties, struggling with the dating scene in San Francisco. Nothing seems to be working out, and she’s starting to think that she’ll live out her days in her crummy apartment with her overbearing roommate, Brooklyn. It’s absurd, but sometimes Evey longs for a guardian angel to show up and save the day.

And then he does. Seriously. His name is Lucian and he’s a guardian angel, been on the job for two thousand years. His sudden presence in her life is both good—he’s brilliant, witty, and warm—and bad—he’s brilliant, witty, warm, and hot as —-. But as perfect as Lucian seems, he’s got problems of his own. He’s taken up drinking and he’s brazenly inserted himself into Evey’s life, going against the greatest cosmic law ever created.

For Evey, the rules are simple: You are not allowed to hook up with your guardian angel. But sometimes fulfilling your destiny requires a leap of faith, a confrontation with God.

Yes, God as in God. 
This story was very different.  I was sucked in immediately.  Lucian is hilarious and sexy.  And Evey was a fun and strong character that you couldn't help but fall in love with.  This story is about finding love and overcoming the challenges that come with it.  It is technically a paranormal story, however, it is more about the relationship between Lucian and Evey than paranormal.  I loved this story, if you aren't really into paranormal than this one is for you.  It is sexy, funny, and heartbreaking.  I loved this book and highly recommend it.  It is live tomorrow, but is available for pre order now.
