THE HOUSE MATE – A Kendall Ryan Review

IMG_1239

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

Kendall Ryan has some of the hottest men in her books! Max is a crazy confident man in business and in his personal life. But when fate decides to leave him a surprise on his doorstep, he’s definitely thrown off his game! Hello, BABY!

Addison is like the perfect version of the girl next door but grown up. She’s so honest and real that it was easy to relate to her. I found myself wanting these two to give in at the get go! They have some honestly hot chemistry between them. Addison is a bit more skittish to jump the gun and go for Max but she’s a girl who’s not afraid to go for what she wants; and honestly what she deserves.

Most HEA have that period of the story where you just don’t know how the two of them are going to figure it out and be with one another. But Max and Addison have a way of showing you how simple it is for two people to find one another and just WORK.

Definitely love this 3rd installment of the Rom Mate series and can’t wait for The Bed Mate and The Soul Mate!!


house mate_amazonWhat’s sexier than a bad boy? A bad ass man who’s got his shit together.

Max Alexander is nearing thirty-five. He’s built a successful company, and he’s conquered the professional world, but he’s never been lucky in love. Focusing so much time on his business and raising his daughter, adulting has come at the expense of his personal life.

His social skills are shit, his patience is shot, and at times, his temper runs hot.

The last thing he has time for is the recently single, too gorgeous for her own good young woman he hires to take care of his little girl. She’s a distraction he doesn’t need, and besides, there’s no way she’d be interested. But you know what they say about assumptions?

This is book 3 in the Roommates series, but each book can be read as a complete standalone as they all feature new couples to fall in love with.

TWIST – A Kylie Scott Review & Release Blitz

 

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

The Dive Bar may be dirty but there’s a twist when the man behind the bar is actually not who he seems.

Alex hasn’t made many inroads when it comes to letting people in to her life. But a dating site dare leads her to who she thinks is Eric Collins. A sweet, funny, and charmingly sexy guy who’s gained her friendship over months of messaging.

But Eric is actually JOE, his older brother. After the dating site fluke of pretending to be Eric, Joe finds himself in a tough spot. How does he tell her without losing the connection they have? Well fate decided that it isn’t up to him…Alex just walked in and BOOM; draaamaaa.

Despite the dramatic way these two are introduced, Scott has some of the most down to earth characters in this series. Joe and Alex had a budding friendship through the internet but getting to see them relearn one another and combine internet with reality was so beautiful.

I loved that they were both so honest and wanted to go for it but wanted to respect each other and themselves. DIRTY was a wild ride full of fun and letting loose and learning who you are.  TWIST focuses on finding that person who fits you, compliments you, and makes you finally let down your walls to see the happiness you deserve.

Can’t wait for CHASER, Eric’s story……oh boy…..


twistFrom New York Times bestselling author Kylie Scott comes the second sizzling stand-alone novel in the Dive Bar series!

When his younger brother loses interest in online dating, hot bearded bartender Joe Collins only intends to log into his account and shut it down. Until he reads about her.

Alex Parks is funny, fascinating, and pretty much everything he’s been looking for in a woman—except that she lives across the country. Soon they’re emailing up a storm and telling each other their deepest, darkest secrets…except the one that really matters.

When Alex pays Joe a surprise visit, however, they both discover that when it comes to love, it’s always better with a twist.

EXCERPT

“I wanted to talk to you a bit more about what happened between us online,” he said, his mouth a serious straight line. “How I came to use my brother’s profile.”
Ugh. “I’m pretty sure I found out everything I needed to know last night.”
“I didn’t mean to lie to you, Alex.”
“Once is a mistake.” I crossed my legs, kicking my black leather bootie back and forth. So I was a little aggravated. Sue me. “Months’ worth of e-mails is not. You could have introduced yourself to me, Joe, told me who you really were. You chose not to. Christ, no wonder you kept putting off meeting. I should have known something was wrong.”
“You’re right. I shouldn’t try to sell you excuses.” A big sigh from my “friend.” “Truth is, I’m not used to being the bad guy. Usually I’m the one cleaning up my brother’s messes.”
“Lucky me.”

THE CHOSEN – A J.R. Ward Event: Highlights

VIP guests were treated to a cover cookie and BDB stadium cup alongside their autographed copies of THE CHOSEN.

The WARDen’s back! And this time she’s here to talk about another controversial storyline: Xcor and Layla!

On a sunny Saturday afternoon in downtown Cincinnati where we lay our scene…

Many questions are simmering behind the 650 pairs of eyes of the room.

But only one is the most asked question of  all:

What is the next book?

THE THIEF!

And it will be Sola and Assail’s story! It will deal with the bloodslave that was found and it will affect Z greatly.

What the fuck is going on with V and Jane?

“If he hadn’t had only one ball, I would’ve taken it from him.”

Does he cheat? Physically or emotionally?

No, but it will get ugly.
V will show up in The Thief.

Why did Quinn have such a visceral reaction to Layla’s secret?

There needs to be lowest of the lows as well as the highs in these stories. There can’t always be middle ground.

Quinn and his reaction to Lyrics was Ward’s hardest part to write in The Chosen.

The Bastards are moving in! 

They will now be interwoven into the books and will eventually get their own books. Ward’s most excited for what she finds out about Sin!

The WARDen laughs as her faithful readers ask some outrageous questions!

Is Throe and his book and shadow friends related to Devina? 

YES! Devina is at the bottom of a well and she needs another vessel. We will see Eddie and Adrian as well!


Lassiter is now all powerful
and he brought in the Lessers knowing that the Brotherhood needed to be rid of them in order to be ready for what’s coming next: Devina.

Will there ever be another Insider Guide?

“It’s about time.” She is also going to speak with her publisher about getting a few novellas out for backstories, i.e. Scribe Virgin’s becoming.

Will the BDB ever end?

No! As long as it’s possible they will go on!

The WARDen’s swooping signature on the hundreds of copies handed out.

Will there ever be more small series like The Bourbon Kings?
Yes, but she can’t tell us yet!
Bourbon kings will wrap up in book 3. And EVERYTHING does get wrapped up.

Lassiter is bound to keep all of the promises The Scribe Virgin made.

Lassiter is getting a book!

Muhrder is coming back.

Novo, of the Legacy series, will be our next tough female heroine.

We will be seeing more of Harhm’s “extended family”.

Lassiter did have to sacrifice something in order to “bring back” Selena.


Will Terese know about Selena and her connection?

No, one other person besides Lassiter WILL find out.

The WARDen focusing on a reader’s question.

The Bastards will be inducted into the Brotherhood.

Lash will be coming back.

In regards to the Dehstroyer prophecy: due to The Scribe Virgin’s power shift to Lassiter, there will be a power shift in The Omega.

Luchas will be back; possibly in the Legacy series.

The coffins! Keep reading and we will find out what they mean. “It’s creepy as shit.”

WOLFEN! It’s someone we know!!!

Ideally, Ward would like to do a “focused, in the future” series on all of the children; including Nalla, L.W., Rhamp, and Lyric.

Is there a reason Nalla is having nightmares with shadows, especially now with Throe and his book? 

Keep reading…she has a special skill 😉

Finally the secret of Boo is REVEALED!!

“BOO IS THE SCRIBE VIRGIN! She’s been with them all along and she’s with them still.”

RandomHouse, Ward’s publisher, raffled off prize bags at the end of the event.

SS-Amazon-683x1024.jpg

Luke Wilder knows the lovely stranger doesn’t belong the second she struts into his sleepy little town.

exclusive without tape

I watched the streetlights cast shadows on the angle of his cheekbone, the furrow of his brow. Strange how his manly beauty had grown on me, redefining or rather stretching my usual boundaries.

Perhaps some people’s allure came from the inside out. A good thing. Their ways and their words did the wooing instead of their physical appeal. Not to diss Joe’s impressive physique. As nice as a pretty face was, though, the personality, the person beneath the skin, should matter more. Anything else was pretty

shallow and unlikely to last. Guess that was the difference between my scratching an itch with a stranger and the way this man had me tied up in knots. And not even neat, sea-worthy knots. I’m talking, haven’t washed or brushed your hair in forever and there’s a big old mess back there. Shit.

At the bar, he’d flirted with me. Full-on flirted with me, his supposed platonic friend who was not his type. No way did I know what to do. Normally Valerie would be first on my hit list of people to call. But she’d just tell me to jump him, regardless of what else was going on, or any possible consequences. Plus, with him beside me it would be kind of uncool. But a couple of whisky sours or no, I was pretty certain I hadn’t imagined his interest. As Mom had always said, however, best to be sure.

“What are the renovating plans for tomorrow?” I asked.

“Rip out the old fittings and prepare the space for new.”

I nodded. “So we’ll be doing some pounding and screwing?”

“Ah, yeah.” The man cast me a look out of the corner of his eye. “Sound okay?”

“Absolutely. Can’t wait to get my hands back on that big hard hammer.”

“Great,” he said, throwing me another questioning look. I gave a nice bland smile.

Yeah, pal. Two could play at the what-the-fuck-is-going-on flirting game. I turned in my seat, all the better to face him. “Did you want to bang, Joe?”

“What did you say?” Wide eyes flashed my way.

“Like I did on that wall today. That was fun,” I said with all due sincerity. “Will we be doing more of that?”

A pause. “Sure.”

“Awesome.”

Another quizzical look.

“Something wrong?” I inquired politely.

“No.” His Adam’s apple dipped as he swallowed hard, shifting in his seat, gaze decidedly unsure. The poor fool couldn’t begin to understand the crazy he’d unleashed with his little taunt. Get rough with the man? My starved libido was well beyond the rough-and-tumble stage. No more hiding or denying, sticking to the sidelines of life. It was my time to step forward and be brave. When it came to Joe Collins, I was more  than ready to say yes.

“I just . . .” he started. “Never mind.”

Neither of us spoke as he pulled into a parking space a short walk down from the hotel. I leaned over, placing my hand on his denim-covered thigh. The muscle tensed beneath my fingers. Shame on me for straying a little close to his loins.

 “Thanks so much for tonight, Joe. I’m so glad we decided to be friends. Because you, sir, make a great friend.”

“Right. Good.” A frown. “How much did you have to drink again?”

“Not nearly enough. Quick, let’s get to my hotel room so I can have more!” I threw open my door.

“Okay.” Hands stuffed in his pockets, he followed me inside, lingering a step or two behind. Guess he didn’t like it when people’s moods got all mixed up and mercurial either. Funny, that. I nodded to the dude at the front desk and pressed the button on the elevator. It opened immediately. Mirrors and old-timeylooking wooden framing decorated the small space. We both leaned against the back wall as it slowly ascended.

“Yeah, sure can’t wait to do some banging, and pounding, and screwing around with you, Joe.” I smiled. “Sound good?”

He just gave me a dry look from his superior height. All confusion gone from his handsome face. Confined spaces only made him seem bigger, even more imposing than usual. No way, no day, however, was I crawling back into my shell or turning into a shadow. We’d agreed to work on our issues, so fine, I was putting it out there.

Still, my bravado was fading, I could barely meet his eyes. The man affected me in all the ways.

“It’s hard, no pun intended this time, because sometimes it feels like you want to be just friends,” I said. “But then other times you flirt with me and I honestly don’t know what’s going on. No huge surprise there, I know. Social awkwardness is my jam. But I thought I mostly understood where you were coming from.”

A ding from the elevator and the doors opened at our stop. I walked out, his bearded hotness following slowly behind, stalking me almost. For certain his usual cool, easy-going-guy persona was missing in action. The man radiated tension, intensity, even. And if he didn’t, I definitely did.

Inside the hotel room I went for mood lighting, only turning on the table and bedside lamps. I rubbed sweaty hands against the sides of my pants. “What you said back at the bar about me getting rough with you, however. Now, that almost sounded like a dare.”

“Did it?”

“It did.”

Arms hanging loose at his sides, he just watched me, saying nothing. Jerk.

“So tell me.” I stood at the foot of the bed, facing him. Every part of me was wired, wide awake. “What’s going on, Joe?”

His shoulders rose and fell on a deep breath. “I realized something tonight.”

“What?”

“That I was falling into old habits. Doing what was easy instead of doing what I wanted.”

“Huh?”

“It was just before you spilled ice on that guy’s pants.”

“Sure. I can see how you’d be seduced by my smooth moves,” I said, voice filled with much doubt. My insides were ready to spontaneously combust. I swear I could feel sweat breaking out all over me, the man was just that hot. Also, my nerves were on high alert.

One corner of his lips tipped up. “You know how you said you weren’t jealous?”

“Yes?”

“Well, I was.”

Wow. I had nothing.

 “This is the part where you’re supposed to admit you were jealous too,” he supplied.

“I didn’t think it needed to be said. I’m not that good a liar.”

“True,” he said. “Anyway, I made the pass at you and then I was leaving it up to you to figure out what you want. To be brave and make the next move.”

Softly, I laughed and shook my head. Men were such idiots.

“Make the first move? This isn’t a game. As I said last time the subject of sex came up, previous hurt feelings, etc. It’s going to get complicated.”

“Yeah, probably,” he said, voice deeper than I’d ever heard it.

HOLDING FIRE – An April Hunt Review, Excerpt & Giveaway

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

April Hunt has quickly become one of my one-click authors. Her daring heroes are so damn charming. And with sassy, take charge women by their sides it makes for one hell of a ride.

Trey is sort-of like your typical military man next door, except he’s a lot sexier, and way more charming than you’d expect. Elle, despite her high-brow upbringing, has led a not so glamorous life and has all the hard edges to show for it underneath.

I think Trey needed a woman like Elle, who needed protection, but was fully capable of doing it alongside him. Having these two meet in a magnetic one-night stand was sooo perfect. They have a chance to let their barriers down and let loose any worries.

Don’t think that Trey’s down to earth side takes away from his Alpha persona. He’s always got Elle in his sights and how he can protect but also how he can win her heart…the right way. Similarly the action throughout never diminshes! Elle goes through so much and never loses her strength!

Hunt is also becoming along the lines of Julie An Walker and Katie Ruggle for her action packed and romantic suspense filled stories. Charli and Vince’s story is next and Oh. My. GOD. THAT is going to be EPIC!!


Hunt_HoldingFire_MM

The second book in April Hunt’s romantic suspense series, perfect for fans of Julie Ann Walker, Lora Leigh, and Rebecca Zanetti.

Alpha Security operative Trey Hanson is ready to settle down. When he meets a gorgeous blonde in a bar, and the connection between them is off the charts, he thinks he’s finally found the one. But after their night together ends in a hail of gunfire and she disappears in the chaos, Trey’s reasons for tracking her down are personal . . . until he learns she’s his next assignment.

Elle Monroe never expected to see Trey again. The night they shared was incredible, but the last thing she’s looking for is a relationship. Now that it’s clear she’s being targeted, though, she has no choice but to trust this man she barely knows with her life. And Trey’s not just determined to keep her safe . . . he’s determined to win her heart.

Holding-Fire-Quote-Graphic-2.jpg

EXCERPT:

Elle stared, transfixed by the clock behind the airport’s claims counter. Each snap of the second-hand took about five years off her life. Being a few weeks shy of her thirtieth birthday, she estimated she had roughly ten-and-a-half seconds until the coroner needed to be called. Twelve, max, with a little bit of luck, but her luck seemed to be in short supply.

Her normal patience was at an all-time low, sucked into a black hole right along with her personal hygiene and her luggage. Twenty total hours in a plane, plus an unscheduled six-hour stop for mechanical repairs, was to blame for the first. The latter two were entirely the fault of the airline.

With a deep sigh, Elle looked around the large, open space. People milled through the airport, bulky suitcases bouncing behind them as they scrambled to their destinations, while others procured blankets and pillows and looked to be settling in for the duration of the night.

On her left, two children tackled the legs of a tall, slender soldier dressed in desert fatigues. Laughing, the woman bent, spreading kisses over every surface of their little cheeks.

Elle ignored the faint ache in her chest and watched the happy family walk away. As they disappeared around the corner, a new sensation whittled its way in—a tingle; the one she’d felt the instant she and Shay unloaded from the gate—the one that came with the ardent focus of someone’s attention. It took root in the pit of her stomach and didn’t let go.

When she’d sensed it earlier, she blamed the paranoia on lack of sleep and inhumane travel hours. But the prickle of awareness came back tenfold, turning her head until she noticed the man leaning against the far wall, reading a newspaper.

Elle did a double take. It wasn’t Trey. It couldn’t be. She’d left him back in Thailand without so much as her last name, much less her travel itinerary, yet the longer she stared at stranger across the room, the faster her heart galloped.

Worn blue jeans encased his thighs perfectly. Not tight. Not baggy. No doubt if he turned around, the rear would look as impressive as the front. Both his face and his hair were disappointedly half-hidden by a baseball cap and sunglasses, but he had the same strongly chiseled jaw and sexy blond scruff that made her want to throw every razor known to man straight into the garbage.

Though he never looked away from his paper, the wall lounger’s lips twitched, almost as if sensing her visual appraisal. That smirk. Those lips. The stretch of a long-sleeved T over a chest wide enough to land an airplane on. Elle nearly collapsed into an X-rated memory of how lips nearly identical to those of this stranger had pleasurably ripped away all her sensibilities only a scant few days ago.

Standing in the middle of a busy airport definitely wasn’t the time to relive her night with Trey. When her turn came up at the counter, she gave herself a mental slap and focused on giving the attendant the information the airline needed to reconnect her with her suitcase. And then with a Have a nice day and her single carry-on, Elle shuffled away to wait for Shay to finish in the bathroom.

She searched her purse for her cell phone and bounced off the chest of another traveler.

“Oh, my God. I’m so sorry.” She reflexively reached out to steady to victim.

“Shut it,” a low voice snarled.

Oh, hell no. Exhaustion mixed with an insane need to shower off the last day and a half made her head swivel to Mr. Attitude. She looked up. And up. Whoa. He was ridiculously tall.

If she’d had a little bit more sleep she’d probably be able to talk herself out of confronting someone so freaking huge, but she’d had a middle seat, and both Shay and the man to her left had been armrest hogs. Elle was eight hours past polite.

She narrowed her eyes, wishing her glare would make him squirm. “It was an accident. I said I was sorry. There’s no need to be a jerk about it.”

“Actually, there is.” Mr. Attitude clamped a hand around her upper arm and squeezed.

“Ow. Hey, watch it!” She tugged, and he tightened his hold.

He leaned his large body way past her personal boundaries. That was when she saw the scar, half-hidden behind his sunglasses. It looked angrier up close, the skin around his eye socket puckered straight up to his hairline. Cold dread licked up Elle’s spine.

It was Alley Man.

“I told you to shut. The fuck. Up.” He emphasized each word and punctuated it with a sharp jab to her ribs. When she attempted to twist away, the poke came again—this time with the cool sensation of metal.

A gun.

Alley Man stepped closer, careful to keep it hidden from view. “If you so much as twitch, sputter, or look at anyone cross-eyed, I won’t hesitate to make this very bad for you. Do you fucking understand me?”

Elle re-swallowed the bile that had risen to her throat. “I should probably warn you that I don’t have any money. Well, I have about ten dollars’ worth of Thai baht, but that’s about it. And maybe a fuzzy breath mint.”

Tightening his grip, he steered them away from anyone who would remotely care what was happening. And let’s face it: This was one of the busiest airports in the country. No one was going to notice one travel-ravaged blonde, even if she stripped down to her cotton undies and streaked half naked through the terminal.

Alley Man kept the gun pressed firmly between her ribs as he directed them to the exit. “I don’t want your money, Miss Monroe.”

Elle’s heart went from a steady thunder to an apocalyptic roar. He knew her name. He knew she’d be at this airport. On this day. On this flight.

The only thing Elle knew was that she was really—and completely—screwed.

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

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

I LOVE a good romantic comedy and this one did not disappoint. Though this was my first, I had no issue jumping in at book 3 for this series. The characters have a great background and I loved these two!

Bryan is your typical party boy with a troubled past but somehow he’s portrayed in a way that doesn’t make him pathetic or annoying. He was a total Cad….the ultimate definition. But this story line that he has with Eilish is the perfection road to redemption. I liked that we got to see so much from his point of view and his thought process for handling stress and love. Eilish is such a badass mom. Seriously, I love her. I don’t have too many mom characters where the fixation isn’t the kid but Eilish’s story is a perfect blend.

This is a story of how a man with a troubled past can overcome on his own and win back the woman made to stand by his side. These two are honestly so heartfelt and real that it made me cry such happy tears! I’m so glad I got a chance to read this romance. Also, anytime a female charter is S-A-S-S-Y I am a happy woman! Definitely going to get the first few books!


The Cad and The Co-Ed, a quirky and sexy romantic comedy from Penny Reid & L.H. Cosway is available now!!

thecadandco-edcover

THE CAD

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.

THE CO-ED

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.

THE PLAN

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?

WHAT I NEED – A J. Daniels Review

img_0814

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

Have you read the Bama Boys? How have you not! They’re hot, they’re alphas, and they love their women. CJ Tully has no shortage of that and he turns the heat up in Daniels’ latest “What I Need”.

Riley is in this horrible relationship with a man who essentially verbally abuses her and puts her down. In a moment of loneliness and thinking that they’ve broken up, Riley finally meets the infamous CJ Tully of the Bama Boys. He’s buff, he’s disturbingly sexy, and that southern drawl calling her darlin’ is all it takes to have her falling ass over tea kettle for him in a night that is UNFORGETTABLE *wink wink*.

Now the twist in our story comes early and oh so deliciously….Riley and her *cough* jerk *cough* man weren’t really on a break (Hello ROSS! lol). So what’s a girl to do but run back to what she knows. But when he takes things too far and almost kills CJ when he tries to rescue Riley….she finally sees the light. But now she’s wormed her way into a tough Tully situation. He’s laid up with a hurt leg and needs a nurse to help him at home (Sneaky CJ!).

Now I won’t give any more away but the ride that CJ takes miss Riley on is FILLED with adorable moments such as CJ saying just the right things and Riley being sweet and cute. But its also filled with some of the hottest scenes EVER. CJ may be a jokester in person and all business when he’s a cop but when CJ and Riley get passionate…THE. SPARKS. FLY. Add this to your collection immediately!!


WINFrom New York Times bestselling author, J. Daniels, comes a sexy new STANDALONE novel.

Riley Tennyson has made a huge mistake.

At least, that’s what she keeps telling herself.

Showing up to her brother’s wedding pissed off and newly single, Riley seeks comfort in solitude and an open bar, until the gorgeous and irresistibly charming CJ Tully makes her a better offer―a wild night with the master of smooth-talking where nothing is off limits.

Riley does what any single woman would do, and a connection is made. One neither one of them can ignore. But when she comes home to the boyfriend she no longer thought she had, Riley buries her secret and begs CJ to do the same.

Forget about each other. It was a mistake. That’s all it was… right?

Desires are hidden. Distance is kept. Until one night CJ makes the ultimate sacrifice, and Riley can no longer avoid the man she can’t stop thinking about.

Not with him sleeping down the hall…
