Synopsis
 

Charlotte Manning never expected to see Chad Tomlinson again. He was her best friend growing up, but he moved away during middle school and she never had the chance to act on her crush. Not until he moves back to Brooklyn—a grown-up, hot cop version of the boy she once knew.

Chad’s happy to be back in his old stomping grounds and more than interested in reconnecting with the girl he never forgot. But when someone makes it clear that they have it out for Charlotte, Chad will need to step up and use his skills—and his military connections—to protect the woman who’s always been meant to be his.

Header Protecting Charlotte

 

Awww…What super story ‘second chance’,childhood friends to lovers story!

And a holiday theme tale to boot! Charlie and Chad have a chance meeting after more than a decade of separation and when recognition comes, let’s just say these two are full on with the idea of getting to know the adult and hot version of their teen bffs! With a bit of a push for a meddling charming family, of course, lol.
From then on it was a sweet and seductive series of dates that we all could see would result in a forever kind of love: a teen crush turned to full on love!
The only point that detracted from having a higher rating, was result of some of Chad expressions and thoughts, that are one of my biggest pet peeved of ‘compared all women with’ Charlie, and my dreaded ‘have always and only loved’ her, yes, I know it’s just minor details, but since none are virgins, and since he was with other women, that just makes the expression and that forever love less believable for me. Yep, I’m weird like that, but if those things were out I’d love this deliciously sweet and hot story that much more!
Rochelle Paige always delivers the most pleasurable and enticing little novellas, and this was no exception! And how cool is that she heard the readers that ask for more of Chad and Charlie after the Bleed Blue 69 Anthology, and Unexpected Claim?! And even now I wanted even more of these two, specially in the future. I can never get enough Epilogue, lol!

“You were my first love back when we were too young to know what it meant. You’re going to be my last love, too, as we grow old together. Hell, beautiful. You’re the only woman I’ve ever loved.”

Synopsis

When small-town Nebraska sheriff Hixon Drake meets Greta Dare, the connection couldn’t be stronger, but the timing couldn’t be worse.

Dealing with the fallout of a divorce he never wanted and setting up a new home for his kids, Hix becomes that guy, that one he never wanted to be, and puts a stop to things before they can even start. Protecting his kids and himself is his only priority.

Greta, on the other hand, has found the place for her and the brother she adores that’s perfect for them – a sleepy little town in Nebraska. She’s learned from life that there are no hopes and dreams. The only thing to look forward to is peace. And that’s what she works hard to build for herself and her brother. Right up until Hix walks into her life.

Hix can’t fight the pull and stay away from Greta for long. And Greta’s finding it hard not to hope for something more with all the promise that is Hix.

But when the first murder that’s happened in over five decades rocks his small, sleepy county, Hix has got to learn to trust again, convince Greta to take a shot with him, and at the same time catch a killer.

In other words, things are definitely…Complicated.

Woohooooooo! A new all time fav from KA!

“It’s more complicated than that,” Hix informed him.
“People say that when they’re trying not to see how simple stuff really is.”

I can’t express how much I ADORED and devoured every single word of this book! We get the best of Kristen Ashley, and I couldn’t have loved Hixon and Greta (plus all the incredible secondary characters!) more and they will be forever ingrained in my memory, as one of KA’s fav couples – only second to Ty and Lexie, which I worship, so that’s saying a lot – and I couldn’t get enough of this story, so much so I’d love even more Epilogue!

“Marriage is not a guessing game. It requires constant communication to keep it strong.”

“Oh yes.
I’d finally found it.
Something worth fighting for.
And if I had to, I was going to fight for it.
Because I was falling in love with complicated.”

Enrapturing plot, heart thumping love story, intriguing suspense, incredibly deep and complex characters and SO much EMOTION! I cried, I laughed, I sobbed and I bit my nails and sigh and swooned with these two and I couldn’t be any happier! And one of the thing I loved the most?! How even though we get a couple of KA’s brand of @sshole actions/words by the H, Hix very fast realizes his mistakes and apologizes! Yes, he does grovel and does it earnestly, and best of all, Greta is no doormat, and doesn’t fall immediately by his swoon worthy apologies and justifications! I ADORED that!

Complicated was so beyond everything I could have expected and dreamed of: KA perfection! <3 <3 <3 <3 <3

“Hix knew the ride he was taking to fall in love was over.
At the same time it never was and never would be.
That was what love was, he knew right then.
An endless night of beauty that didn’t include making plans to retire to your RV.
Just sitting back and seeing what came next in your never-ending journey of discovery.
He was in love with Greta Kate Dare.”

“That all sounds really complicated, Hix,” she replied softly, her voice
breathy.
“No, sweetheart, all that is really fuckin’simple.”

 

 

About the Author

Kristin Ashley - headshot

Kristen Ashley was born in Gary, Indiana, USA and nearly killed her mother and herself making it into the world, seeing as she had the umbilical cord wrapped around her neck (already attempting to accessorize and she hadn’t taken her first breath!). Her mother said they took Kristen away, put her Mom back in her room, her mother looked out the window, and Gary was on fire (Dr. King had been assassinated four days before). Kristen’s Mom remembered thinking it was the end of the world. Quite the dramatic beginning.

Nothing’s changed.

Kristen grew up in Brownsburg, Indiana and has lived in Denver, Colorado and the West Country of England. Thus, she’s blessed to have friends and family around the globe. Her family was (is) loopy (to say the least) but loopy is good when you want to write. They all lived together on a very small farm in a small farm town in the heartland. She grew up with Glenn Miller, The Everly Brothers, REO Speedwagon and Whitesnake (and the wardrobes that matched).

Needless to say, growing up in a house full of music, clothes and love was a good way to grow up.

And as she keeps growing, it keeps getting better.

Synopsis

He wants her soul. Too bad she already sold it.

Family is everything to gambling den darling, Teresa Valentini. Blood comes first, especially before men. So when her brother lands himself in hot water, she’s willing to do whatever it takes to save him. And showing up topless in her unwitting savior’s motel room is turning out to be the furthest thing from a hardship…

Will Caruso is the bad boy of New York’s financial scene…and he just found out the very thing that drives his success is a damn lie. Now, he’s exchanged his high-stress life for the open road, no one but his Great Dane…and half a million Instagram followers to keep him company. When a mysterious beauty arrives, her secrecy prods his suspicions, even while she tempts his lust to the breaking point.

Teresa met Will under false pretenses, but the bond consuming them is real. They’re strong enough to overcome a little betrayal…aren’t they?

Excerpt

“Here we are.”

My face heats over being caught even imagining such things. We’re at my door and I have no recollection of entering the motel. Come on, Teresa. Stop letting this guy get to you so bad. “Right.” I fish for the key card in my pocket, but cease all movement when Will brushes his fingertips down my arm, then trails them back up. Slow. And all the while, he invades my space, eliminating inches at such a leisurely pace that I’m panting by the time our mouths are a breath apart.

“What are you going to do when I close this door behind you, Teresa?” He grazes my bottom lip with his teeth, making me gasp. “You going to get undressed in front of the air conditioner, thinking it might cool you down after teasing my cock for over an hour in the bar? It won’t. I give you five minutes before you’re face down in bed, riding your own fingers.”

My knees threaten to buckle. “That’s my business.”

“Make it mine.”

Mayday. Mayday. “Will—”

He stops my admonishment with a drugging kiss, his tongue stroking in and out of my mouth. His hands grip my elbows, lifting me up on my toes in desperate degrees, meshing our bodies, our lips, until I’m moaning, letting him have rough intercourse with my mouth. Just when I’m on the verge of giving in and begging him to take me up against the door, he steps back, eyes glittering, wiping away the moisture on his mouth with a wrist swipe. “I’ll be out on the balcony. If you’re going to finger yourself in my honor, I want to listen.”

5 ‘ Will-notized’ Stars

KABOOM… There go my ovaries…

That’s right. Nothing, I mean NOTHING can prepare you for all that is filthy Will!

“Get used to having soaked panties,”

Yep, consider yourself warned, since this just one of the many, many reasons for which Follow went straight to my SEXIEST READ of the year

Jesus. If someone told me this morning a woman existed who could make me feel protective, jealous, horny, challenged and curious in the space of five minutes, I would have laughed until my fucking face turned blue.

She looks like a sin I want to commit. Frequently.

These two were absolutely brilliant! Tessa Bailey outdid herself from the very beginning, completely gripping us, with both these realistic and passionate characters and their heart touching stories.

Poor Teresa, what could be harder than falling for her mission?! A man she needs to con in order to save her brother, but that makes her crave for everything she never had, and all that could be… 

I’ve never had anyone look at me like Will does. Like he’s dying to get to the bottom of me. Metaphorically and physically.

Lordy, talk about an impossible mission! Their ‘live wire connection’ couldn’t be missed, they really were like two magnets being drawn together, their scene were so sexually charged it’d be no surprise if you are found panting by yourself while reading this beauty. Yep, that good!

If I’m going to use this attraction to maneuver Will halfway across the country, I need to dangle myself like a carrot. And in the meantime, try not to be tempted by his carrot. His very thick, flesh-colored carrot.

All like all the Will Caruso jar wasn’t already overfilled with sexiness, this man had to have the filthiest of mouths! I know, nothing new, given it’s Tessa Bailey, The Queen of Dirty Talk herself we are talking about here, but really, I feel this woman – especially in this man – should be given a real award for it! This truly is an one of a kind gift! And one that yours truly, enjoys immensely! 😉

Oh my God. Have I ever been spoken to like this? I mean, there’s dirty chatter. And then there’s Will’s Fantasyland of Fuck Talk.

Sweet Baby Jesus, there are no words to describe all that is Will Caruso, but worry not, because he has plenty of naughty, panty-melting words to tease you with…

She’s a gift from God.
 I accept.

“Someone is a very horny girl.” 
“Look who’s talking,” I manage, my voice shaking along with my thighs. “You’re just as bad.” 
“I’m worse, baby. A million times worse.”

Endless quotes and highlights, I’m telling you! Every single word that came out of his mouth should be considered a threat  to women’s reproductive system, hence the my combusted ovaries, lol!

“I might take you to fancy hotels, baby. Might walk you through those elegant lobbies and demand you be treated like a queen.” He drops forward, bending down to lick a path between my breasts, up and down. Again and again, before lifting his head. “But I will always be the man who fucks you nasty on the floor once we’re upstairs, with your thong twisted around your dripping cunt. We clear?”

“Are you going to charge me extra to lick it?” Holding her legs open wide, I curse over the damp, black silk stretched across her pussy. “You should. It looks as delicious as the rest of you. I’d let you fleece me just to get the taste in my mouth.”

Teresa was such a strong and resilient woman, I don’t blame her for succumbing to Will’s charms despite her important mission. If anything she was a miracle worker, because that man and his dog were beyond irresistible. She did put up a good fight though! 😉

Tonight I’m the woman who’s falling for him and his dog, heart, body and soul.

But the man wasn’t only sexual appealing, he was EVERYTHING! The absolute perfect man! Swoon worthy, a hint of vulnerability, protective and possessive to extreme, just how like my Romance heroes, über sexy and HOT in every conceivable way, and best of all, so utterly devoted, enraptured, head-over-heels for HIS Teresa! 

Teresa is mine. My bones know it. My head. Even the heart I thought was too damaged and scabbed over to be touched knows she belongs with me.

For the rest of my life, if anyone doubts out loud in my presence that a man can fall for a woman overnight, I’ll be the first to tell them they’re dead wrong. Because I’ve damn well fallen for this woman who just saved my dog’s life and goes from sex bombshell to honest and afraid in mere seconds. She’s a mystery, she’s truth, she’s black, white and gray. She’s mine.

Now, tell me that didn’t make you melt on the spot? And that is just a small teaser, because like I’ve said before, Will Caruso is a league of his own! A Best Book Boyfriend League, that’s for sure!

“Mine now.”
 I nod like I’ve been hypnotized. Or Will-notized.

Follow was indeed the SEXIEST romance novel I’ve read all year. Tessa Bailey took her already superb words to a whole new level of awesomeness in this, that is the her first ever self published book, and I couldn’t have adored more the result! Enrapturing and well developed storyline, beyond amazing main characters, and a romance hero that I won’t soon forget, nor Will and Teresa’s chemistry and sexscapades. This man kept me salivating and panting for more and more, and now I’m begging Tessa Bailey to give us Nicky’s story! And a little more of Will, of course, since you’re at it! LOL! Pretty please…. <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 

“I need you, Teresa. Let yourself need me back.”
“I do,” she murmurs haltingly. “I need you.”
“You have me. You have me.”

“Screw the fantasy.” Our eyes lock and the love shining back humbles me. Makes me ache and feel weightless at the same damn time. “You’re my fantasy, Will.” 
“And you’re mine, baby. One I’m going to keep having over and over again.”

“Managing his parents’ biker bar was never part of his plan, but after meeting Gia Caro, he’s beginning to think that’s exactly where he’s meant to be.”

Falling Fast by Aurora Rose Reynolds!

falling fast cover

Synopsis

Colton Allyster is relieved to be back home. After six months of rehabilitation, losing his career as a Marine along with his fiancé, he’s had to learn quickly what’s really important. Colton grew up wanting to serve his country. Managing his parents’ biker bar was never part of his plan, but after meeting Gia Caro, he’s beginning to think that’s exactly where he’s meant to be.

Ever since Gia Caro arrived in the small, sleepy town of Ruby Falls, Tennessee, her life has spiraled out of control. Between losing her grandmother a little more each day to dementia, and her hot boss’s constant attention, her once quiet existence isn’t so quiet anymore.

After weeks of sidestepping Colton, things get out of hand, and before Gia knows what’s happening, she’s spending her nights in his bed and her mornings in his kitchen. And as he cleans out drawers and makes room in his closet, she starts to wonder if she’s falling too fast.

Header Falling Fast

Talk about a BOOM!!! Colton and Gia’s story is HERE!!!

I’ve been dying for Colton and Gia’s story since we got a glimpse into them on Until June, so you can imagine my level of excitement when Aurora Rose Reynolds announced the release of Falling Fast! I’ll tell you, it was a *running around screaming and squealing* kind of enthusiasm, since it was one of my most anticipated books EVER! 

Watching her go, I know I’m fucked, because I have never in all of my life wanted anything the way I want Gia Caro.

“That’s the kind of woman you lay all your hopes and dreams on, the kind who will make the struggles you’ve been through worth it.”

Well, after finishing Falling Fast I can honestly say the level of giddiness and exhilaration was more than justified, because Colton and Gia were everything I’d been hoping and craving for, and then some!

“I’m in love with you, and I know that isn’t going to change. I don’t want to be without you, so if you said you wanted to live in Chicago… fuck, if you said you wanted to live in Hell, I’d follow you there and do it happily.”

“You just breathing my air makes me happy, baby,”

Colt might have come with a big of nasty baggage, in the shape of a crazy ex, but the man himself and his unwavering faith that Gia was the One for him, and that he wouldn’t allow her, anyone or anything stop him to show Gia they were meant to be, was absolutely swoon-worthy and one of the reasons for which I feel for him as fast as I did. That and his insanely HOT alpha manliness! Oh boy, was this man hhhhhhhooootttt! Straight to my Best Book Boyfriend and my ARR fav H list!

Aurora Rose Reynolds really outdid herself, giving us in Falling Fast, a super sweet, sexy and, one my personal fav trope, insta-love story in most perfect of settings. Loved and devoured it from start to finish, so much so that now I’m  begging to see more of all these fantastic secondary characters, specially Colton’s brother and Gia’s bff! Can’t wait! <3 <3 <3 <3 <3

“I love you, Gia. Had no idea what love was until you, but I know now, and I know I’ll always cherish everything you’ve given to me.”

I might have fallen fast, but I fell right into the perfect life.

Synopsis

 

Everybody has problems. But Travis? Yeah, he has so many problems that he finds it hard to breathe sometimes.

He spends five years catering to his ex-wife’s every want and need—all to make it possible to continue to see his child.

He isn’t supposed to fall in love with a woman, but he does.

He isn’t supposed to find someone that is willing to put up with his ex-wife’s crazy antics, but he has.

He isn’t supposed to be happy, but he is.

And all it takes is his ex-wife finding out about his new-found peace for things to change.

***

Hannah saw him and knew he was the one.

All it took was one look into that haunted man’s eyes, and she was lost, never to be found again.

She thinks she has it all. His love, a new baby made with that love, and a house to raise their blended family.

She’s wrong, and Travis’ ex-wife is out to prove it.

***

Travis doesn’t deserve Hannah. All he’s done is hurt her.

She’s done everything in her power to keep everyone happy, but the more she tries, the harder his ex-wife pushes. Until one day, there’s nothing left to push.

Hannah leaves, and Allegra wins.

But Travis isn’t willing to let her have her way any longer.

He fights back, and only gets a bullet to the chest to show for it.

iScream Book Blog – It’s so damn #HOT you’ll enjoy every page and come back for more.”

Britt Red Hatter Book Blog – “I don’t think there are enough words in the English language to express how insanely incredible Go To Hail is.”

Smashly Bookalicious Reviewing Chicks – “For all those girls who have dealt with a crazy ex and their antics, this book is for you.”

 

 

Header Go To Hail
Lani Lynn Vale sure gave us another HOT and exciting new story with Go To Hail!

I’ve been anxiously awaiting for Hannah to have her very own HEA since LLV’s Code 11 – KPD SWAT series, biting my nails during Wolf’s book, and then when Travis was announced as her H, I’ve been counting down the days until I got their story.

And what a story it is! Damn, talk about between a rock and an hard place! And I’m not just talking about Travis here, but POOR Hannah. Hadn’t she already suffered enough in some of LLV’s previous books?! Poor woman can’t catch a break! I would call her Saint Hannah, the woman has been going through hell for more than ONE YEAR! A saint I tell you! I know Travis was in a horrible and tough situation with his daughter, mainly due to his PSYCHO ex ( though an absolute nightmare in every way, still takes second place, with Mig’s ex as reining queen of all time worst exes), and her disgusting blackmail, but I wish he had realized the hopelessness of the case sooner, and put Hannah and their baby first much early on! This crazy ex took far too much air time in the whole book, than I normally like, and hence why – even though I was expecting some serious OW drama in here – I couldn’t enjoy it as much or get as involved in their romance as I normally do with any of Lani Lynn Vale’s books.

Don’t get me wrong, I still devoured this baby like I always do with any of Lani’s fantastic tales, since we got all her typical kickass, funny, and HOT moments! The storyline was just was thrilling and enrapturing as the rest of her books : we can never go wrong with a LLV book! And these Hail brothers sure are something else. And I did FINALLY get Hannah’s HEA! It was a long time coming, woman! Now, I can’t wait to what these Hail Raisers gang brings us next!!! <3 <3 <3 <3

Synopsis

From the New York Times bestselling author, K. Bromberg, comes a new series about three brothers, the job that calls them, and the women who challenge them.

“I hate you. I never want to see you again.”

Grant Malone is not the reason I moved back to Sunnyville—at least that’s what I tell myself. Yet, those parting words I said to him back in third grade, ring in my ears every time a townsperson brings up one of the Malone boys. I thought time had healed my wounds. I was wrong. Nothing could have prepared me for how I felt when I finally saw him again.

Twenty years does a lot to turn a boy into a man. One who hits all my buttons—sexy, funny, attractive, and a police officer. But Grant is off limits because he knows too much about my past.

But I’m drawn to him. That damn uniform of his doesn’t hurt either. It’ll be my downfall. I know it.

What’s one night of sex going to hurt . . . right?

***

I’ve always loved Emmy Reeves.

That’s why I’m shocked to see her all these years later. The shy girl I once knew is all grown up.

Adventurous and full of life, she owns my heart now, just as much as she did back then. Convincing her of that is a whole different story.

I’ll give her the one night she asks for—like that’s a hardship—but when it comes to letting her walk away after, she has another thing coming. There’s no way in hell I’m letting her go this time without a fight.

Header Cuffed

5 ‘Head up. Wings Out’ Stars

K. BROMBERG HAS WRECKED ME! COMPLETELY AND UTTERLY WRECKED ME!

Cuffed was so far and beyond I hardly have words to describe this literally achievement! From sobbing like a baby to full on belly laughing and passing by some seriously panty melting moments  and insane chemistry, this incredibly heartfelt, thoughful and sexy story couldn’t have been more perfectly written! it’s no wonder Cuffed is one of my Top Ten Top Reads of 2017, and my new K. Bromberg favorite! For me it was PERFECTION!

She’s my bestest friend in the whole wide galaxy.

He’s just like the little boy I used to know and nothing like him at the same time.

AND it all started with a chance meeting, or should I say reunion, of Grant and Emmerson, after twenty years of no contact and a heartbreaking separation, for more reasons than one. Let’s just say they were both shocked beyond belief, and just one look, and all those feeling of destiny, best friends for life, and all the memories came rushing through. Just not in the same way for both of them…

Malone Family Rules: If someone’s hurting, you help them.

From the very beginning I started falling for this family, there is no other word for it! All the Malones conquered my heart, and the more their family values were revealed, and the reflections of them, the more I was helplessly in love. And Grant… O… M… G… Even when he was eight and had to make the hardest decision of his life, right there, he took a huge piece of my heart and just kept getting more and more pieces, as the story kept unfolding.

My black-and-white world has color seeping into its edges. 
I love and hate it all at the same time. 
It makes me feel alive inside when, until now, I hadn’t realized I had been dead.

Good God, and Emmerson… How she  and her story made my heart hurt, and bleed, and break… I’ll keep this review spoiler free, so that you can experience the full impact of the story as reading, but let me just tell you, with all that she has gone through, it’s no wonder her resistance to all Grant makes her feel and all her trust issues. Fortunately, Fate and their insane physical and emotional reactions to one another can’t be denied…

His kiss is thunder and lightning, a tornado and a tsunami, all in one fiery package that makes me forget about the here and the now, makes me want more when more with Grant scares the shit out of me.

Well, as we, and Emmy soon find out, all the handsome package that is Officer Sexy, is impossible to resist. Not even her well set out rules stood a chance against this determined, swoon worthy law man, and what he wanted.

I shouldn’t do this. I don’t get to throw my rules out the window for one man. One hotter than hell and more than skilled man named Grant Malone, but a man nonetheless.

Her rules that she needs to feel like she’s in control but that I know I’ll ply away one by one until it’s her and me with nothing between us.

This limitless determination, and irresistible enchantment he has for Emmy, naturally make him one of the Best Book Boyfriends I’ve ever read. He was just so far gone for her, seeing through her tough and nonchalant attitude, and craving and wanting every part of her, that it’s no wonder I was swooning from the get go.

The woman is a force to be reckoned with and hell if I’m not sitting in the middle of her windstorm and waiting to be hit with everything she has.

She’s sunshine with a little bit of hurricane thrown in, and I’m willingly walking straight into her storm with nothing more than the clothes on my back. 
She turns to face me, her brow furrowing as I just stare at her as the realization hits me again that I want to be a part of her beautiful destruction. All of it. Without a damn forecast to prepare me for what’s coming next.

What a emotional rollercoaster this book was! Honest to God, I don’t remember the last time I sobbed so much, in more than one occasion – specially in Emmy’s and more surprisingly, most of Phony Maloney’s child’s POVs – they really wrecked me, and Ms. Bromberg couldn’t have given them a more realistic and heartbreaking form. You’ll fall in love with their eight year old version as much as the twenty eight year old one.

Grant Malone seems to be the only one I’ll allow to upend my world. 
First to save me. 
And now to show me what it’s like to feel.

Yes, he did save her, but it’s all so much more complicated than that. Hero complex does fit him to a T, and he’s the first to acknowledge that. It’s in his blood, and Grant owns to it even more than his brothers. The thing is, when it comes to where Emmy is concerned, wanting to ‘save’ her is just the tip of the iceberg. He wants everything from her, and will do EVERYTHING and ANYTHING for her. And the way he executed all this, two words : SWOON WORTHY!

The part of me that needs to prove to her that her rules are going to be broken.
One. 
By. 
One. 
Until she sees that sometimes sharing a past means you can build a future together.

I kissed all of her pain away, now I want her to know I desire her, too. All of her. The scars. The beauty. The pain. The past. The future.

We do have so much diversity of moments, situations and dynamics in Cuffed, that it will no doubt keep you hooked from the very first word till the last, and you’ll find yourself trying to read it all in one sitting and ignoring the rest of world, lol. 

Their banter, their game of seduction was as sizzling hot as intricately clever and funny, giving us the perfect balance between those emotionally and gut-wrenching charged scenes, and light and super steamy ones.  From their first interaction we could feel these two belonged together.

“Christ, Em.” 
“Are you gonna frisk me, Officer Malone?”
(…)
 “Frisking someone has never been so tempting.”

“Oh, am I under arrest?” 
“Definitely.” 
The palm of his hand slides down the line of my spine. 
“What’s the charge?” 
“Making me want you. Every minute of every goddamn day.”

How could Emmy resist the force of nature that was Officer Malone?! That’s easy, she couldn’t, and not even being a force of nature herself, because a love and connection like theirs couldn’t be broken, not even by twenty years, not even by anyone. Emmerson may have been Grant’s biggest obstacle, but there was no way she was letting her go a second time. Epic love story material, people!

“I’ve survived this far by closing myself off and not allowing myself to feel . . . and then you enter my life with your lights and sirens blazing, and it’s as if you’ve handcuffed me so that I can’t escape from you. So that I’m forced to feel. So that I think in wants and needs. So that I wonder how I ever lived without it.

Let me take a moment here to bring to light all the awesomeness that are all the secondary characters, starting with the other two smoking hot, Malone brothers – yes, Grady and Grayson, I’m already ogling you guys! – the Malone parents, that were the foundation of all this family is about, and made my heart warm more than once, Nate and Leo, and last but not least, the kickass, dirty innuendo sister, and overall sassy filled, Devi! I loved her interactions with both Emmy as well as with Officer Sexy! TOP BFF, no doubt! 

“You know what they say about curiosity . . .”
“It killed the cat, yeah, yeah. But honey, by the grin on your face, I know your kitty meowed. A lot.”

OK, I really ended up saying far more than I intended to, but with this level of romantic novel brilliancy, how could I not?! K. Bromberg completely stole my heart with Cuffed, and with this perfect beginning, and all the teasing we got with those HOT brothers, I’ll be here counting down the days until we get Grady’s story on Combust and Grayson’s on Cockpit! I need more Malone hotness!!! <3 <3 <3 <3 <3

You can’t go gypsy when you have roots. And I want you to have roots, Em. Here. With me. Ones that tangle with mine and can never be ripped out. Lazy Sunday together ones and white picket fence ones.”

At his mussed hair and his crooked smile. At his eyes that hold more than I could ever ask for. I see love in them. I see pride. I see tomorrows. 
I see forever.

Synopsis

A hotshot consultant hired to streamline Osbourne Corp. meets his match in Pandora Justice—the more she plays hard to get, the more he wants her.

They say that like recognizes like, and the day I looked into her deep blues, I met my other half.

Pandora Justice took over as head of security at Osbourne Corp. after her father’s retirement. Eighty-hour workweeks are normal; being brushed up against by hot consultants with ridiculous names is not. And she doesn’t like it. Not even one bit.

It’s amazing how easily she can lie to herself.

I had to have her. Plain and simple.

The first time Pandora sees Royce in the ring—all tattoos and sinew, covered in sweat—he looks at her like he’s just won more than the fight. Like he won her.

I won’t play games with her. I’ll wait, and it will kill me, but I’ll do it for her.

Royce’s cocky grin with deep dimples makes Pandora melt. Once she wanted to smack that look off his face—now all she wants to do is kiss it. For the rest of her life.

The thought of spending the rest of my life with Pandora warms the place in my chest I didn’t think was alive. I’ve put my claim on her—she’s the one, and I’m done. It’s that simple.

These ladies really know how to give us the best of insta-love goodness in all its variations and leaves us hot and bothered in the best of ways!
Pandora was so like her mom Paige, making Royce (I refuse calling him his nickname, because it was the only thing I disliked in the book, lol) work for her. Not that he minded because from the very first sight he knew what he wanted and that it wouldn’t be an easy task, Pandora was one tough cookie, and he would be only satisfied when he cracked that steel armor around her heart and got ALL of her!
As usual with AR, I loved the couple, and loved just as much to see Paige and the Captain, as well as Penelope and his Russian (major swoon), and now I’m dying for Henry’s story! Really, counting down the days! I bet it will be just as epic as his dad!!! <3 <3 <3 <3 <3

She’s the one, and I’m done.

Synopsis

No one would say Keelie Lockhart isn’t determined.  Taking on the role of both mom and dad to her two young kids, she’s managing life the best she can.  Saddled with a century-old dilapidated farmhouse she can’t afford, a bevy of goats, two dogs, and a geriatric donkey, the last thing she has time for is a man—even if that man is a knight whose shining armor comes in the form of worn-in jeans and work boots.  

Controlled, methodical, and focused—Asa Hollingsworth takes charge of everything in life.  Working close to home after years away, he finally has the time to focus on his kids.  Little does he know, a chance meeting with a petite, strawberry-blonde stranded on the side of the road, would intertwine their lives in a way he’d never want to untangle.  

But when school bullies turn into something much worse, Asa starts to dig around.  He never dreams the troubles lurking in the hallways of the local high school would shake his family to its core.  With drug dealers lurking, bullets flying, and threats coming from every angle, Asa must do everything he can to protect the ones he loves.  

Because in the end, there’s nothing more precious than the gift of life.  

Warning:  Oh, I’m sorry, that’s a fake ID.  If you’re not eighteen, consider yourself bounced and walk away from my books.  I’ll gladly welcome you back when you become a legit adult.  That is, unless you’re my parents or my children.  If so, walk away and don’t come back.  You don’t need to know what’s in my head.

5 Million ‘The greatest Gift’ Stars

WOW! WOW! WOW!
Every romance lover – specially the ones that love single parents trope – needs to one click the hell of this baby as soon as it’s live! Believe me you won’t regret it, because this book is EVERYTHING!!! 

Perfect love story and main characters, perfect subplot, perfect secondary characters (even the pets!) : yes, that’s right, utter PERFECTION!
I have no doubt you will fall in love with this whole gang, and I most say I adored both Asa and Keelie, but this man… Swoon…

Her hair’s a mess of waves flowing out from underneath, and for some reason, I like the fact she didn’t feel the need to do herself up.  Not that she needed to.  I’d take her covered in paint any day.

The whole story was beautifully written, but Asa was just far and beyond everything! I’m a sucker for an older, more mature Alpha (you know how much I hate immature Hs, lol) and this man really was THE BEST! Loving, patient and protective of the ones he loved but still remaining a true man’s man, OMG, I just melted and swooned all throughout the book with his actions and his words.

If a kiss could be a promise, then he just professed his declaration—heart and soul.

I’m calling dibs, I tell you, because he went straight to my top Best Book Boyfriend list, and he’s without a doubt my FAVorite of Brynne’s heroes.

“I hope you’re wet, baby.  I plan to bury myself in you so deep, you’ll feel where I’ve been for a week.”

Kellie was just as incredible, and SO STRONG! I hurt for her and her past and admired her resilience and strength – and of course her kickass spirit- and I was so glad Asa crossed paths with her, giving her a much needed breath of passion and happiness into her life!
Finding each other’s soul mate, your other half truly is the greatest gift of them all! <3 <3 <3 <3 <3

I’m home—for the first time since I moved to the farm, I’m home because I’m in his arms.

I look around at what might seem like bedlam to others—but to us, it’s become a perfect kind of chaos.

Synopsis

 

Captor becomes lover…
I’m a marksman. Mobster. Deadly assassin.
My job is to protect my brotherhood, but that isn’t my only responsibility.
I’m Kieran Hendry, the up-and- coming leader of The Order, and a new duty calls. I must take a wife.
A wife I don’t know.
A wife born into a position at the top of The Fellowship hierarchy.
A wife who will forge a strong alliance between her brotherhood and mine.
A wife I don’t want.
I knew next to nothing about Westlyn Breckenridge when I abducted her, but I quickly discover that she’s intelligent, strong, defiant, selfless. And beautiful.
One night with her is all it takes for me to see that she is no typical Mafia princess. I’m hopeful this arranged marriage won’t be the miserable union I imagined it to be. But convincing my intended to give us a chance won’t be easy when she sees me as the enemy. The brute who kidnapped her. The vile fiend who threatened to do as he wished with her body.
It’s true. I am all those things. I had cruel intentions. But everything has changed. My affection for her is unexpected. My love, unintended.

Excerpt

Kieran Hendry makes me feel like a woman. A desired woman. His words, the way he looks at me, his body language. Everything he does is a huge turn-on. Yet I hate this man. Loathe him. But damn, he has a way of touching me that makes me forget every logical thought in my head. It doesn’t make sense to me how I can despise him and at the same time respond so strongly to his touch.

It’s my body reacting to him, not my head. It must be hormones and sex drive. Those two things combined have the power to make people do things they wouldn’t normally do.

“You’re trembling.” He grazes the back of his fingers down my cheek and my stomach does some kind of flip. “Do I frighten you?”

I look away because I can’t tell him that it isn’t fear giving me the trembles.

He grasps my chin and forces me to look at him. “Do. I. Frighten. You?”

“No.”

He rubs my bottom lip with his thumb. “Then what is it?”

I shake my head.

He leans in for another kiss but stops before his lips touch mine. We’re so close I can feel his breath on my mouth. Just like last night when my body turned to mush.

I’m quivering and my breath has become more rapid. I may even be a little lightheaded.

His bottom lip grazes mine, but he still doesn’t kiss me. “I’ll back off right now if it’s what you want.”

I don’t want him to back off. I also don’t want him to know that I don’t want him to back off. Feels too much like giving in to something I’m not supposed to crave.

“I’m going to kiss you.”

I’m his captive. We made an agreement. I must submit without a fight per our deal to maintain Ellison’s safety.

Yeah. Keep telling yourself that, Wes. Maybe if you say it enough, you’ll start to believe it.

His fingers lace through my hair and he holds me prisoner when he lowers his mouth to mine. I open, giving his tongue an invitation to come inside. The two meet, and together they become erotic dance partners with Kieran taking the lead.

I’ve only had one very forgettable kiss in my life. But this kiss… I could live a million years and never forget it or the way I feel right now.

He stops, his lips hovering over mine. His breath warm against my skin. “More or stop? Your decision.”

He’s asking me to venture further with him. My body says yes, but my head tells me that one more step will take me to a place I shouldn’t go with this man. I’m twenty-three and being kissed for the second time in my life. I don’t want this to stop. “More.”

Header Unintended

4.5 ‘Mo Chroí’ Stars

Oh, Wow, talk about an intended mate becoming full on unintended FOREVER LOVE!!!

Well, like everyone who’s read and loved this series and specially after Endurance, I’ve been dying to know all about what happened in those days after Westlyn and Ellison’s abduction and the agreement of marriage between The Order and The Fellowship. Unintended can be read as a standalone, but to fully enjoy and understand all this Mafia universe – and because the rest of the series are MUST READS – I advise reading all the previous books, where we got to meet not only Kieran and Westlyn, but the rest of gang.

Kieran and Westlyn have been raised in the ways of the brotherhoods since they were born, and knew of their fates weren’t really their own, and obligations they would  have to fulfill, but that is very different from having to face that reality instantly, and having to accept that in a matter of days they will have to marry someone they don’t even know for the peace of their brotherhoods. Two marriages between their leaders families to seal a peace treaty between two enemy brotherhoods. 

Wouldn’t it be a wonderful thing to tell our children one day that the brotherhood they’ve grown up in and their mother’s brotherhood were once at war, but our marriage and their existence brought peace to the two of them?”

Kidnapping his future intended may seem like a OTT measure by Kieran, but for the man that will be the future leader of The Order, nothing is too much if it insures his objectives are fulfilled and he gets what he wants. To claim his mate.

This woman has the power to affect me. Affect my actions. My emotions. It’s a weakness I can’t afford.

Oh, yes, Kieran never expected to be so affected by his intended, and I loved how sucker punched he was by his reactions to Westlyn, given his cocky and asshole attitude, specially in the regards of required female purity *insert eye roll* – yeah, yeah, I know it’s a brotherhood/culture thing, but damn, I hate one sided expectations! If the leaders want pure brides they should keep it in their pants too, argh… – made me slap him silly a bunch of times, lol. Ok, rant over, because like I said, it’s a culture thing, and the women, given how they were brought up, are fully aware and understand. And, boy did the man make up for his initial asshole attitude! I did love how Westlyn reacted to him instantly, but never lost her focus of the situation, that she was a captive to The Order, her brotherhood enemies, and that though she was incredibly attracted to Kieran, she remained strong, and true to herself.  

No man has ever spoken to me the way Kieran does. Telling me that I’m beautiful and that he wants me and that I’m going to be his. Feeling desired and wanted… it’s intoxicating, even if it is coming from this brute.

She may have been melting on the inside, and her body begging for all that Kieran was offering, but she knew all that was at stake, and made the man work for it! The sexual tension was off the charts and Kieran was beyond HOT and swoony in every way after their initial confrontation. It was full on ‘seduce Westlyn’ game on!

“Even if I say yes to your marriage proposal, I won’t belong to you. I am my own person.” 
She’s delusional if she believes that misconception. “That’s where you’re wrong, Westlyn. When you take my last name and my cock, you will become mine… my property. But that also means you’ll become my treasure to protect. I will place myself between you and whatever danger presents itself. No harm will ever come to you or our children. That’s my vow to you.”

See what I mean? WOW!!! From that point on he really was the PERFECT book boyfriend, and made me swoon and sigh often and constantly. Him revealing his true self, his hidden pain and fragility, to her was just the perfect culmination of their courtship. They were indeed the perfect match.

“I don’t know how it’s done in The Fellowship, but we are faithful to our partners. When I claim you, you also claim me. Just as you owe me your faithfulness and loyalty and devotion, I owe you the same.

Yep, I’m adoring this Syndicate men! You know how much I worship loyalty and faithfulness in my characters, so you can imagine why this Sin series is one of my favorites, because, so far all the characters have been incredibly loyal to their mates, and Kieran and Westlyn are once again fantastic on that matter. From the start they don’t settle, they show and demand that loyalty and discover that have the same view on their marriage. They want a real marriage, they are each others, and only each others!

Westlyn Breckenridge is mine. 
I will go to fucking war with The Order, The Fellowship, or whoever for her if I must.

Kieran stole me… and I liked it. 
He told me I was beautiful… and I liked it.
He took my virginity… and I liked it. A lot. 
He calls me wife… and I love it. 
Captor becomes intended becomes lover becomes husband.

OMG! They were fantastic! I completely feel in love with these two, and their love story. And Kieran surprised me in the most wonderful ways in how he treated Westlyn. Like she really was his whole world, not only the woman he was obligated to marry, but his life. His salvation.

This woman. She’s the light to my dark. The angel to my devil. The quiet to my storm. The key to my prison.

“You’re the angel who possesses the power to ease my hell.”

Georgia Cates managed to capture all the blossoming of Kieran and Westlyn’s love story, in the most beautiful, organic and realistic of ways, and still maintain all this incredibly and well constructed Mafia universe, that makes us live all this intense emotions right along with all these characters.

“Love is like a rose. It blooms at the perfect time when it’s at its most beautiful, but only after being nurtured. That’s what our relationship needs: to be nurtured so it can bloom when it’s at its most beautiful.”

“Please, Westlyn. I can’t recall in twenty-eight years ever hearing those words said to me. You’d be the first to say them.” 
We are so much alike, he and I. Both of us yearning to be loved.

Unintended really was so much more romantic and heartfelt than I could have imagined, and I couldn’t have loved Kieran and Westlyn more than I did. It was fantastic to live and go through all these feelings with them. Georgia Cates couldn’t have created a more perfect story for this Mafia arranged marriage, we got all the emotions of the love story plus an enrapturing side plot that is giving us so many potential main characters and interesting plots for the series future. This series keeps getting richer and more and more enticing, and after some considerations pointed out by Kieran himself here, I now hope – PRAY – that Lorna will get her own HEA with another that not Leith, and if that teaser is any indication, I’m hoping she does indeed get her own fresh start and a brand new H, that is the perfect man for her! Fingers crossed and counting down the days!!! <3 <3 <3 <3 <3

She is my other half. My better half. And that is why I will never let her go.
I was her kidnapper. I may have taken her as my captive, but she’s the one who captured my heart.

When I stole this beautiful woman, all I had in my heart was anger and rage and malice. I had cruel intentions. But then everything changed. My affection for her was unexpected. My love, unintended.

Synopsis

Emery Matheson knows pussies. Cats, that is. As the star of a reality show called The Pussy Tamer, it’s his job to fix extreme feline behavioral issues.

When he hears about his next project—a lonely cat hoarder named Estelle—he expects a little old widow, not the blond bombshell who opens the door.

With a 100 percent success rate, Emery has never had trouble finishing a job. But just a few hours into the first day of filming and one thing is clear—Estelle and her band of misfit pussies will give him a run for his money… and his heart.

Excerpt

Red spots began soaking through Emery’s gray T-shirt.

“Oh my God. You’re bleeding.” I pointed at his chest. “I’m so sorry.”

He just laughed. “Occupational hazard. We have a medic on hand for that very reason. Besides, it’s not like you didn’t warn me.”

His words summoned a brunette carrying a first aid kit.

“You know the drill,” she said, grinning at him while she opened the case and started lining up her supplies on the kitchen table.

Emery grabbed the back of his T-shirt and pulled it over his head, being careful not to disrupt the wires from his mic.

Suddenly, it felt like all the air had been sucked out of the room. The thin material had done little to hide the muscle definition underneath, but at least then I couldn’t see his smooth skin.

His nipples.

The ridges of his abs and that highly coveted V by his hips.

A thin smattering of hair covered his chest, traveling down the center of his abs and below his belly button. The light brown trail disappeared into the waist of his jeans.

I wanted to run my fingers over it. All of it. Even the parts I couldn’t see.

I was looking at the most magnificent torso ever—not just in real life—in the entire damn universe. He had movie stars and models beat. I remembered watching a video of Charlie Hunnam training for an upcoming role, and I’d been in awe of the amount of work it took to look that good.

Regular people didn’t just go walking around in that kind of shape. Apparently, Emery didn’t fall into the category of ‘regular people.’

And God bless him for it.

Feeling weak in the knees, I leaned my hip against the counter and wondered if I was the only one affected. Everyone else went about their tasks as usual. Well, everyone except for the medic.

After taking a seat, Emery said something to her about not using bandages this time, and her response was a nervous giggle. She quickly cleaned the area with disinfectant, then put cream over the scratches.

Red-faced, she slowly backed away as Emery slipped a new shirt on.

A different kind of heat flared through me, but this one was familiar and much more unpleasant than the virus I was fighting off.

Jealousy.

I was jealous that she got to touch him.

I made a face, because that was ridiculous. Emery was here to work, not get eye-fucked by the crazy cat lady.

The hot-and-bothered medic taped a sign to the wall by the door. In big letters, it said, ‘Do not leave door open. Mike will run.’ It made my sudden desire to claw her eyes out diminish.

She was just doing her job.

Psycho much, Estelle?

Opening my cabinet, I grabbed the bottle of Tylenol and choked down a couple pills along with my sweet tea.

I extended the medicine toward Emery. “Want some?”

“Nah,” he replied. “It doesn’t hurt that bad.”

“That happens a lot, doesn’t it?” I lightly accused.

“Getting mauled by cats?” He laughed. “More times than I can count.”

“No.” I tipped my head toward the flushed woman retreating from my apartment. “People losing their shit every time you take your shirt off.”

AWWW…

UNTAMABLE IS PERFECT! UTTERLY AND COMPLETELY PUUURRRFECT!

I’m sorry, but I had to go there, with this many pussies in one book, how could I not?! LOL

Now, seriously – ok, as much as I can be – Emery and Estelle’s story surpassed all my expectations.  Yes, I was anticipating a pretty amazing and hilarious Rom Com with plenty of sexual innuendo and some deliciously cheesy lines, and I sure got all that, but Untamable surprised me so much, given it was SO much more than that. It was EVERYTHING! It made me do through all the range of feeling possible, and in such a realistically and perfect way written that I was so invested in the characters and their emotions I even ended up shedding a few tears in a more than one occasion and not all of them laughing.

I’d heard people talk about this moment. When they were so captivated by someone, time seemed to stop. 

The whole world would get to witness the first time I ever felt weak in the knees from one look. One simple sentence. One set of perfect plump lips.

I never expected to be so emotionally connected with the story so I can honestly say Estelle, Emery and his family, and specially his dad, completely stole my heart. 

Emery and Estelle meet in the most unusual of ways as a cat hoarder and the pussy tamer, but from the get go we could see that besides the instant connection, these two were indeed the perfect match in all ways possible. OMG, I loved these two so very much!

First kisses were meant to test the waters. They were supposed to be brief and gentle. 
Nothing about Emery’s kiss was quick or apprehensive. 
I’d waited my entire life for a kiss like this—I just didn’t realize I’d been waiting for it. Until now.

I already knew going in that Jamie Schlosser always creates the most realisticly, down to earth heroes, but with Emery she went far and beyond. It’s like she has an Perfect Man handbook and she just goes there and pick one up, and each it she ups the game even more. Body, heart and soul perfect! Like Estelle said herself the man didn’t have flaws, he was good and loyal to the core in a smoking hot package and just as scorching in between the sheets, so she was one lucky lady. 

She let me see her—all of her. I was such a lucky motherfucker.

He was like a drug. And I just had to face it—I was so fucking addicted to Emery Matheson.  

Estelle was an equally interesting character, I loved her spunky, quirky, hold no barriers attitude. Her hidden fragility and love and care for her cats, just made her even more endearing to me, and with a combo like that in a blonde bombshell like that, Emery didn’t stand a chance. Two golden hearts matched perfectly!

So it doesn’t matter how far apart we are,” I said, squeezing her hand. “Wherever I am, you’ll still be my greatest something.”

Jamie really exceeded all my expectations and blew my mind in how she was able to compile every emotion in the book – worry not, because it is a RomCom after all, so the hilariousness was still front and center –  and make me fall in love, not only with the main characters, but with the secondary ones. Undoubtedly heart touching, soul warming and spirit lifting! <3 <3 <3 <3 <3

“I love you,” he blurted out, and I sucked in a breath so fast I thought I might choke on it. “I love your potty mouth and the way you don’t give a fuck if anyone approves or not. I love that you bottle fed kittens. I love that you lose at strip poker on purpose. I even love the way you drive.” He took a deep breath. “You’ve shown me everything about you, Estelle. I see you. And I love all of it.”

“If we ever get separated—by death or otherwise—I’d dream of you every night just so we could be together.”
