THE CAD & THE CO-ED: A Penny Reid and L.H. Cosway Release & Giveaway

The Cad and The Co-Ed, an all-new romantic comedy from Penny Reid & L.H. Cosway is LIVE



Bryan Leech is a cad.

Or, he *was* a cad.

No one is quite certain.

Once the quintessential playboy, Bryan claims he’s done with wild parties and weekend benders. No more one night stands leading to mornings he can’t remember; no more binges and blackouts; no more exploits plastered all over the tabloids and rag sheets. According to Bryan, he’s cleaning up his act.

The only problem is, no one believes him.


Eilish Cassidy never thought she’d be a mother at nineteen or still in college at twenty-four. Cut off from every member of her family except her favorite cousin, she’s finally managed to put her life back together. Stronger and wiser, Eilish enters her last semester of university determined to stand on her own. Now she just needs to find an internship.

The only problem is, her best option—by far—places her directly in the path of her son’s father, and he doesn’t remember her at all.


Bryan is determined to prove he’s changed. Eager to settle down with the right woman, he’s got his sights set on the gorgeous redhead who seems terribly familiar.

Eilish is determined to hide her secret. She’ll do anything to keep her child safe, even if that means ignoring her own wishes and desires.

But what happens when Bryan starts to remember? And what will it take for Bryan to convince the girl he forgot that she’s unforgettable?

JACK OF HEARTS – A Sandra Owens Review

**ARC received from the author for an honest review**

Meet Alex Gentry: undercover FBI with the right mix of badass and righteousness. He’s been working undercover with his brothers to take down a kingpin; everything has been carefully planned out and calculated. Except for Madison Parker, niece to the elusive kingpin and somehow wrapped up in his dark world. Alex never planned to have her in his radar…but now he can’t seem to get her out of harm’s way.

I loved the blend of bad boy biker and FBI agent with Alex and his brothers. Owen’s clever nicknaming of the brothers as card faces was refreshing; hence our books title as Alex is “HeartMan”. For book one on the series there is a good layout of characters and whats going on but I was a but lost in the beginning. I feel like there’s already backstory to Madison and Alex that isn’t told clearly enough for us at first. But it was quickly forgotten once you get down to the meat of the story.

Madison and Alex have an undeniable attraction to one another and light up the page. and not just with their passion but with the action that we see. Its almost like a biker/mob version of Romeo and Juliet except adults and no suicides. The underlying plot of Alex and his brothers’ mission he’d a great level of action for me, not enough suspense but it wasn’t by any means boring.

This was a first time read for me for Sandra Owens and I DEFINITELY can’t wait for book number two: King of Clubs!


31340885.jpg Alex Gentry doesn’t scare easily. Working as an undercover FBI agent in the biker bar he and his brothers co-own, he hangs with deadly criminals in order to gather information. Danger is just part of the family business. But one thing has him terrified: his attraction to Madison Parker.

Madison is the cousin of Ramon Alonzo, son and second in command to a notorious drug lord Alex is trying to bust. Alex has befriended Ramon as part of his cover, and Madison has unknowingly become his informant. Falling for her could risk this case—and both their lives.

All Madison wants is to get her new bookstore business off the ground, and for her creepy cousin Ramon—to whom she’s unfortunately indebted—to leave her alone. If she could only stop fantasizing about his mysterious new friend, Alex…

As the Alonzo cartel investigation heats up, so does their relationship. But will the secrets they’re keeping tear them apart—or get them both killed?

A few highlights of Sandra’s life she fondly recalls are jumping out of a plane, flying upside down in a stunt plane, and riding her Harley in the mountains of Southern California and along the coast of Maine.

Although those events in her life were great fun, nothing compares to the joy and satisfaction she gets from writing her stories.

RIVETED – A Jay Crownover Review


**ARC received from the author for an honest review**

There are stories that make you cry and there are stories that make you ugly cry. Then there are stories that get deep in your gut, stir up the butterflies and the demons, and have them come out in hiccuping sobs of happiness. THAT is the level of emotion I got down to when I finally got my hands on Riveted and dove in to the story of Church and Dixie. This is not only a literal adventure tale; but a journey in learning, soul-deep, in to what makes Church the man he is.

Dixie is your down home girl with a heart of gold and smile to knock the sun off its axis. I love that Crownover got right down to her truth. She’s seen some nasty in her life but nothing can bring this girl down to doubts and pessimism. She believes in a HEA down to her bones. And seeing Church, knowing what kind of man he is, she knows he’s the right kind of man.

Church…gods where do I begin with Church! This is a man who’s seen and FELT war. I cannot put into words the way my heart breaks for him. He isn’t a good man gone bad, no. He’s a good man who thinks he deserves the bad; and couldn’t be more wrong. I pulled so hard for Dixie to drag him out to the sunshine and let him see how he belongs in the light with her.

I love that Crownover when a bit of anew route this time with the suspense of danger that happens with Church and Dixie on their journey home to the South. I loved trying to figure out who was after them and was completely surprised by who it was! I’m also so proud of her for taken on a touchy subject of race and Church’s life having to deal with the differences he had to go through compared to someone like Dixie. It was nice to see it in a realistic light; that it is a subject that people have to live with.

This was one crazy ride with a girl with knew her worth and a man who found himself worthy of it. Every new tale from Crownover surpasses the last and pushes the bar higher for the next. I’m DYING for my man Wheeler’s story. The glimpse of them in this was NOT ENOUGH. No matter what anyone says I will always love that man. I can’t explain the way he jumps off the page to me! Can’t wait for Salvaged but for now order your copy of Riveted AND HOLD ON TIGHT FOR THE RIDE!


Riveted - cover
Everyone else in Dixie Carmichael’s life has made falling in love look easy, and now she is ready for her own chance at some of that happily ever after. Which means she’s done pining for the moody, silent former soldier who works with her at the bar that’s become her home away from home. Nope. No more chasing the hot as heck thundercloud of a man and no more waiting for Mr. Right to find her; she’s going hunting for him…even if she knows her heart is stuck on its stupid infatuation with Dash Churchill.

Denver has always been just a pit stop for Church on his way back to rural Mississippi. It was supposed to be simple, uneventful, but nothing could have prepared him for the bubbly, bouncy redhead with doe eyes and endless curves. Now he knows it’s time to get out of Denver, fast. For a man used to living in the shadows, the idea of spending his days in the sun is nothing short of terrifying.

When Dixie and Church find themselves caught up in a homecoming overshadowed with lies and danger, Dixie realizes that while falling in love is easy, loving takes a whole lot more work…especially when Mr. Right thinks he’s all wrong for you.
