Synopsis

New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Harper Sloan returns with a passionate and breathless romance about the sparks that ignite when a cautious cowboy and a once-scorned woman open up to each other in the third installment of the Coming Home series.

As the eldest Davis, Clayton has always tried to lead by example. He takes his job as head of the family businesses seriously, making sure the farm and auto shop are running smoothly—along with keeping an eye on his brother and sister. For him, there’s a time and place to let go of the control he holds with an iron grip. And with the way he grew up, coupled with a disastrous end to his last relationship, he’s just fine with his quiet, solitary life.

Most of the time.

What he hadn’t counted on was the cute, quirky, shy bookstore owner, Caroline Michaels. She’s the proverbial woman next door—well, the next town over, that is. Caroline hasn’t lived an easy life, but after escaping a verbally abusive ex, she’s finally living it for herself. The last thing she ever expected was a one-night stand with Clay Davis she can’t stop thinking about.

So when she falls on hard times and Clay comes out of nowhere to her rescue, she realizes just how impossible it’ll be to stay away from him. Now all she has to do is convince him to live a little…. Will Clay be able to give up the reins and finally settle down? And, more importantly, will Caroline muster enough courage to lasso him up?

Excerpt

I push my hands from his shoulders and palm his jaw as his stubble prickles against my fingers while my hands wander up to his hair. His hat falls to the ground with a thud and I know he’s just as lost in me as I am in him, because he doesn’t even make a move to pick it up. He lets out a deep grunt when I mold myself against his body, seeking some sort of friction. The next thing I know, my back is against the door and he’s gripping my bottom. His mouth hits my jaw with a bite of his teeth, making a squeak of pleasure shoot up my throat, and his deep rumble of laughter reaches my ears as he presses me harder into the door with his hips. The heavy bulge of his erection against that spot makes me so desperate for him that I whimper in relief when his mouth finally closes over mine in a wet tangle of tongues.

I’ve never been kissed so thoroughly.

This is the kind of kiss that sets the bar for any that might follow.

The kind that shows you everything you’ve been missing and everything you never knew you wanted. I’m going to be comparing every kiss I ever have to my dark cowboy’s, even though I know there’s a good chance no one will ever compare. The sounds coming from my mouth, the ones being swallowed by his, are nothing short of needy. My hips move in tandem with the thrusts of his, and even though we’re both fully clothed, I know it won’t take much more of this for me to go off like the town’s fireworks on the Fourth of July.

“Fuck, you taste just like apple pie,” he whispers against my lips, breaking away with a gasp.

“Huh?”

“Goddamn, I love apple pie,” he says before his mouth is back on mine, this time with a whole new kind of hunger deepening his kisses.

I’m held captive, enraptured. Then his hands move from my bottom to glide up my torso. He lifts his hard chest off mine and suddenly those delicious fingers are at my breasts. Even if I had big boobs his hands would dwarf them, I’m sure, but as it is he covers both with a firm grasp before adjusting his hold with a deft twist of the wrists. His mouth continues to feast on mine while his huge hands learn my body with slow movements. I tear my mouth from his with a breathy moan when he pushes my shirt up and slips his fingers into the cups of my bra to tweak my nipples.

“Oh, God,” I moan when he does it again.

“I can’t get enough of you,” he rumbles.

“Please,” I beg, not with the slightest clue as to what I’m begging for.

His hips dig even harder into mine as he leans back, supporting me against the door with that connection alone as he pulls my shirt off. The darkness makes me feel more confident than I normally would be, almost half naked with a man—no, a stranger.

“Yours too,” I tell him as his fingers move to unclasp my bra. “I want to feel your skin on mine,” I breathe, taking over the task so he’ll hopefully give me what I want.

I fumble in my haste to feel more of this dangerous arousal he’s creating in my body, but the second my bra is free and dangling toward the floor, his naked chest collides against mine, pushing me into the door with a force that sends the air rushing out of my lungs.

His mouth hits my collarbone at the same time his hands grasp my bottom, sliding me up the door until I feel the wet heat of his breath against my breast.

Then he stops.

Header Cowboy Up

4.5 ‘Sweeter than apple pie’ Stars

I’ll be damned, Cowboy Up – and everything that is Clayton Davis – was the perfectly tied bow to wrap up this amazing Coming Home series! Pure romance novel perfection!

That’s right, I expected Clayton Davis’ story to be fantastic, given silent and broody men make the best romance heroes, in my opinion, and HOT DAMN, this man sure did surpass my expectations!

“I’m old enough to go after what I want without playin’ games. There ain’t a thing cocky about that.” God, his voice is pure sex.

Incredibly that what Clayton and Caroline thought would be a one time, no strings attached, night stand, where they could lose themselves of their life troubles would end up being just the very beginning of their story. Even if at the time they were anonymous to one another.  

I’ve never been kissed so thoroughly. 
This is the kind of kiss that sets the bar for any that might follow. 
The kind that shows you everything you’ve been missing and everything you never knew you wanted.

Well, one night was more than enough for them to be branded on each other. How could it not? That kind of sexual chemistry, and physical connection we felt from the start couldn’t be beat. It was a ‘once in a lifetime’ occurrence, and they felt it deep in their soul.

“You taste like apple pie all over?” he oddly asks, when the sounds of him getting naked stop. 
“What?” 
“Never tasted anything better,”

Yep, they were instantly hooked, even though they tried to ignore the connection at first, but once they cross paths again, and realize they aren’t that stranger after all, well, all bets are off, at least on Clayton’s side. There is no way he miss the chance to have what he thought he’d never have in his life, what his siblings had successfully achieved, his very own happy ever after…

This must be what it feels like to miss something so deeply you crave it . . . even if you never really had it to begin with.

“Don’t let go of me,” I tell my dark cowboy.
“Not sure that’s gonna be possible, sweetness,”

I adored that from that second chance meeting, Clayton knew what he wanted, what Caroline represented, and what she could be to him and to his future, and that he was willing to fight for her and with her if necessary, to show her all they could become, that they could be each other’s everything!

“You make me feel like I’m comin’ alive, sweetheart.

Caroline was really as sweet as pie, and considering her sad background, it’s no surprise how strong she is, and how difficult it is for her to accept and believe Clayton could be her chance of true happiness. 

“I probably should just tell you all the ugly parts of me so you’ll understand what a waste of time pursuing this would be. Save you from gettin’ upset when you realize you’re wastin’ your time on someone broken,” she mumbles. 
“Darlin’, you’re not broken. You’re still standin’, which means you’re just a little dinged up, maybe even a little bit bent, but you’d be hard-pressed to find someone who isn’t.”

 

I’ve seen bent. I’ve seen fractured. But if the people I know who’ve been both can find what they need to be happy and move on, so can this beautiful woman who has me wrapped in her spell.

Oh my Lordy, see what I mean by how dreamy this cowboy is? If not for one small recollection that Caroline revealed about their past, of something that she witnessed as a teen that kind of tainted my image of him – yes, I know it’s in their past, but it was totally unnecessary for their story, at least to that level, imo – and I just couldn’t erase it from my mind *cue sad face*, he would have been the perfect romance H in my book! He’s so beyond amazing, I really wish I could delete that revelation, lol. Why oh why did that have to be there?! If not, Cowboy Up would have been the full five stars, because their story is THAT fantastic and heartwarming! Want more proof?

“One night of being bad with you, Caroline, and I felt more with you in the darkness than I’ve ever felt with anyone else in the light.

 

“I feel the pull to you like someone lassoed me around chest and yanked.”

ALL THE QUOTES, people! Seriously, Harper Sloan outdid herself when she created all that is Clayton Davis. This man is pure Romance Hero GOLD, and even though I’m giving you so many snippets of his awesomeness, you have no idea how incredibly hard it was to choose amongst so many brilliant, deep and heart touching quotes! This man… All the feels, I tell you!

It’s his affections, after all, that have shown me how to complete the puzzle inside of me—that have allowed me to finally shed the past and start living.

Ask me, baby. Ask me what roads we’re traveling on.” 
“Wh-what roads?” 
“The ones that collide together and form one indestructible path.

And better yet, Clay is not only a heart stealing, swoon worthy cowboy, no sir, like he wasn’t lethal enough for our hearts, this man had to be a dirty talking, panty melting, COWBOY! Enough said, consider yourself warned!

“My good girl doesn’t need any help bein’ bad anymore, does she? I’m about to love you so hard, you’ll think I’m still inside you for days. So vividly that you’ll take one step, feel what my hard does to you, and come from just the thought of me takin’ you alone.”

Seriously, I feel like I can’t say anymore to show you how beyond amazing Clayton and Caroline are, and how incredible and enrapturing their love story is: the true epitome of Romance novel!

Sweet, super sexy, and so immensely emotional, that I’m sure will touch even the coldest of hearts and so perfectly fitting for this holiday seasonal! I can’t tell you much more than, here are a few more quotes that I can’t resist showing you and to say: ONE CLICK this baby today! 

My reason for waking and my reason for breathing. The woman who made the risk of loving her unquestionably worth it, because with her love, that risk is really just a reward.

 

“How did I not see it before! You rode in on your white horse, knocked me on my butt, but saved me in the end. My knight in pressed flannel and Wranglers.”

 

“Never gonna stop lovin’ you, Caroline.” 
Her breath hitches. “And I love you, Clayton. Always.”

THAT ENDING!!!! It was PERFECTION! I’ll miss all this guys so much, but Ms. Sloan sure did tied up everything perfectly with an amazing HEA not only for this couple, but for all the Davis family! Sooooo good, and plenty of babies and bright futures for all of them. Perfect ending for this once-tortured, now-blissful siblings! <3 <3 <3 <3 <3

And that’s how Clayton and Caroline, Maverick and Leighton, and Quinn and Tate . . . came home.

Synopsis
 

Winnie thinks she has the perfect life.

Two beautiful, healthy children. A police officer husband. A job that she loves. Oh, and let’s not forget that she’s a nationally ranked marathon runner.

Fast forward six months, and her perfect life has imploded.

Winnie finds herself in a completely new world, and this new world is a brutal bitch.

In this new life of hers, her husband is gone. He realizes, at the worst possible time, that he’s no longer in love with her. He’s in love with her best friend. So he leaves, and doesn’t look back.

Her sixteen-year-old daughter is in trouble with the law, and she’s barely making ends meet thanks to losing the job that was keeping her and her tiny family afloat.

Then, the last thing that could make it all bearable, her running, is ripped out from under her, too. Thanks to a spinal stroke that leaves her unable to walk, let alone run, she’s having to relearn how to do the simplest of tasks—such as putting on her own pants.

She’s at the lowest of lows, and the last thing she wants is a sexy, bearded, motorcycle riding alpha to tell her how to live her life.

But Steel Cross never asks her what she wants.

***

The moment Steel Cross sees Winnie’s daughter steal some shoes for her younger brother, he knows he’s in trouble.

He’s a sucker for misunderstood teens. After all, he was once one himself.

He knows he can’t just walk away, and the moment he sees that troubled teen’s mother, he doesn’t just know it, he feels it. Down to the very bottom of his soul.

With his share of hard knocks, he knows that he shouldn’t step in and make his move on a fellow police officer’s ex. There’s a code, after all, yet he just can’t seem to help himself.

He’s done being the good guy. Sometimes he just wants to be bad.

And Winnie makes him realize that being bad is still kind of good. As long as you’re with the right person.

Excerpt

I’d never, not once, had the pleasure of giving a blow job.

Yet, I wanted to give one…to Steel.

Jesus Christ, did I want to give him one.

The man turned me on in ways that I had no clue I could be turned on by, yet here I was, wondering what it would feel like to give the man a blow job.

My curiosity got the better of me as I googled more tips—which they’d said they’d done as a comparison—and then I got lost in the World Wide Web.

My first stop had been Cosmopolitan!

My second had been some random Joe-Blow (literally, that was the name of the website) blog that gave the men’s top ten best blow job tips—according to men.

1. Maintain eye contact.
2. Tie your hair back, it shows your dedication.
3. Allow him to put his hand in your hair and control the movements.

That, I could do! In fact, the idea of Steel putting his hands in my hair and controlling all of the movement was downright arousing.

4. Use your hand as well as your mouth.  Twist it side to side lightly as you pump and suck him.

Okay, pump, suck, and twist. Check!

5. Don’t use your teeth. Ever.

I shivered at the thought. That would suck, accidentally biting Steel’s dick. He’d probably never let me near him again and kick me straight the hell out of his bed. Though, I had to get in his bed first…

6. Drop down so he’s standing and you’re kneeling. There’s nothing more arousing than watching a woman get on her knees.

That thought made me shiver. Would Steel like me on my knees?

I sure the hell hoped so. I’d love to get on my knees for him.

Then again, I was doing good with my rehab…he still might have to help me back up.

I winced. Maybe I should just get on the bed between his splayed thighs…yes, that was how I’d do it.

7. Suck his balls.

Suck his balls? How the hell did I put those in my mouth? There wasn’t enough room!

8. Go slow. It’s not a race.
9. Swallow.

Well, that was self-explanatory. But I didn’t know if I could swallow. I’d try, but what if I gagged?

10. We like it when you gag.

Did they? What if I accidentally threw up? That would completely ruin the mood.

“What are you doing?”

I squeaked and jumped as Steel came out of the bathroom.

Synopsis

E L James revisits the world of Fifty Shades with a deeper and darker take on the love story that has enthralled millions of readers around the globe.

Their scorching, sensual affair ended in heartbreak and recrimination, but Christian Grey cannot get Anastasia Steele out of his mind, or his blood. Determined to win her back, he tries to suppress his darkest desires and his need for complete control, and to love Ana on her own terms.

But the horrors of his childhood still haunt him, and Ana’s scheming boss, Jack Hyde, clearly wants her for himself. Can Christian’s confidant and therapist, Dr. Flynn, help him face down his demons? Or will the possessiveness of Elena, his seducer, and the deranged devotion of Leila, his former submissive, drag Christian down into the past?

And if Christian does win Ana back, can a man so dark and damaged ever hope to keep her?

Header Darker

Awww… Mr. Grey….

That’s right, I’m one of those full -on Fifty fans till the end, and with pride!

This series, like Twilight, changed my life, and I’ll forever be in debt with EL James for the whole new world she opened for this already bookworm. The genre became an absolute addiction, and for that I’ll always adore Christian and Anastacia’s Love story!

Darker, gave much more than I was expecting, and that’s saying a lot since I’ve read and know all the scenes from the original series by heart! I’m a sucker for a male POV, and Ms. James really gave us plenty of new and insightful moments, that just made me love these two even more! And those childhood flashbacks with Grampa Trevelyan were everything!
Emotionally charged, ultra steamy, funny and witty, and oh so romantic, Darker had for me a richer and even more developed writing than its predecessors, which fed my FSoG fan addiction to the fullest, and made me practically (given it’s a long one, which I’m thankful, btw) devour it in one sitting!
Can’t wait for the third book in Christian’s POV, can already anticipate how epic it’s going to be! I so need it NOW! <3 <3 <3 <3 <3

This woman who has dragged me into the light. This woman who loves me in spite of my past, in spite of my wrongdoings. This woman who’s agreed to be mine for the rest of her life.
My girl. My Ana. My love.

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.

4.75 ‘Uncomplicated’ Stars

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.

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

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 bad boy with something to prove.
A woman with a mission.
The race of their lives.
The love of a lifetime.

I don’t think his parents expected him to live up to his name—Racer Tate—but once he felt the adrenaline rush behind the wheel, he was addicted.

He’s the fastest, fiercest driver around.

Scouting new talent brings me to his doorstep…
but his smile sends me to my knees.

The sexy, mysterious Racer Tate is not the kind of man a girl like me falls for. He’s secretive, reckless, elusive. But his proximity pushes me beyond reason, and his kiss….

This is our last chance to win, and he is our only hope. I’m supposed to watch him—make sure he doesn’t get into trouble. But it’s an impossible task. And now the one in heart wrenching, toe-curling, soul-crushing trouble is me. Because when your heart belongs to someone, their truths become your own, and their secrets become your salvation…or your curse.

He says he wants me. He says I’m the One. But he also thinks he’ll break my heart, one piece at a time until it’s gone.

Excerpt

I’m still reeling. While people approach him, he cuts a path straight to me, his gaze penetrating and target-like; making me want to bolt.

His lips do that little upward tilt they do that seems so sexy, and for a second, I feel like I’m lightheaded.

I gulp, and then feel mad at myself for acting like some idiot as fucking devil-Racer Tate reaches me, throws himself into a seat next to me, and turns to look at me expectantly with the most gorgeous grin on his face.

I don’t know what to say.

This guy has left me sort of speechless.

“So … ” I say, staring in the distance at his beat-up mustang, then at him.

“So … ” he says too, in his deep voice, his smile a little more wicked than it was two seconds ago. He glances at my mouth.

Oh god.

Why am I licking my lips?

It only made his eyes narrow and darken.

        I open my mouth to speak, failing to find words. He smells like sweat and soap and shampoo, and I feel my traitorous nipples push up to my top again. Why do they do that when he’s around?

“This is illegal,” I state.

His voice is husky from exertion, and his eyes glint with laughter. “That’s why it’s fun.”

I look away from his eyes, trying to focus and clear my head. He leans over and peers into my face, his face shadowed by the moonlight and his jaw now carrying a little scruff. “Are we in agreement?” he presses.

“No.” I glare and shake my head, meeting his cocky gaze. “You’re reckless, Racer.”

“So are you, Alana.”

“It’s just … Lana.”

His brows fly up in surprise. “And a bit of a liar too.”

I purse my lips, still glaring as my gaze goes back to his car. Girls are rubbing against it as if it were him, and I find it disgusting. Why are women always acting so slutty around race car drivers and bad boys?

“You crashed your car,” I say flippantly.

“You crashed my car,” he contradicts, amused.

I laugh, then scowl in his direction. “You crashed it more. I can’t believe you were making such a fuss about me crashing into you when it was just a little kiss—”

He leans in to peck my lips—fast but firmly. “That’s a kiss.”

I lose my breath.

My eyes wide.

He eases back, lips smiling as he comes to his feet and stretches his hand out to take me by the elbow and help me to my feet.

“Let’s get out of here.” He starts walking, leading the way.

“And go where?”

“Anywhere I can get my hands on you.”

Oh… My… GOD!!!
You probably know how obsessed I am with my Ultimate Book Boyfriend, Remy, so when Racer’s book was announced I was hoping and secretly praying that he was all that his dad was (not more, because we all know that is impossible!). Well, it seems all my prayers and wishes can true because Katy Evans blew my freaking mind!!!

That’s right, ladies and gentlemen, this books was beyond my wildest dreams, sweet, sexy, rapturing and so very REAL! And now Racer stands right there with Remy as the Best Book Boyfriend Ever! For me, beyond PERFECTION! <3 <3 <3 <3 <3

I can simply tell that I am loved … beyond my wildest dreams.

I want this girl like crazy. Not only with every atom, pore, and cell of my body. I want this girl heart and soul.

Synopsis
 

Baseball is life, the rest is just details.

Everyone who’s played the game has heard those words a time or two. But Hancock has heard them his entire life from his parents. His family has lived and breathed baseball even before he started little league.

Hancock “Parts” Peters has a name that inspires grins across many faces, but the moment those faces get their first look at him, those grins slide away.

Hancock is gruff, filterless, and doesn’t give a crap who he offends.  He is the only man in baseball who doesn’t care if he gets an endorsement or not. He’s there to play the game. He’s there to win. He’s there because baseball is his life.

People think he’s a jerk.

And maybe he is. But if that’s how he has to come off to get people to leave him the hell alone so he can play in peace, so be it. The less people he has to worry about offending, the better.

***

Don’t let the fear of striking out hold you back.

Sway Coffman didn’t mean to rock the boat.  She was just there to do her job.

Sure, she was a woman in a man’s world. Yes, she beat out several of those men to get the job as head athletic trainer for the professional baseball team, The Texas Lumberjacks.  And yeah, she now got hate mail from those men.

But she’s good at her job, and she earned the position.

What she is not good at, however, is talking to men.

Men seem to see her curvy hips, large breasts and thick thighs and automatically think she is incompetent.  Because surely a fat girl couldn’t get the job treating some of the most fit and athletic men in the world, right?

Wrong.

This fat girl got the job, and she is proud of it.

What else did she get?

The attention of the sexiest bearded man she’d ever had the pleasure of laying eyes on.

It was enough to bring to her down to her knees…in front of that man, the hot and grumpy baseball player, Hancock Peters.

Synopsis
 

Tobias knows that women are a lot of trouble, and one in particular is more trouble than most. Yet even with the knowledge that she’s a pain in the ass, he doesn’t stop himself from doing the one thing he knows that he shouldn’t do—fall in love with her.
It’s supposed to be simple. Get in, get the girl, and get out.
What Tobias isn’t supposed to do is fall for the woman he’s supposed to rescue. But he can’t help being intrigued–and amused–by the defiance rolling off Audrey every time he so much as speaks to her. This fascination only intensifies with every single word from her delectable mouth.

***

It’s been six years since her assault, yet it feels like it happened just yesterday. Audrey’s sick and tired of feeling so useless. She’s had enough of being scared, she’s doesn’t want to be all alone for the rest of her life. All of that boils down to a woman who’s had enough of not doing anything to reclaim her life.
She’s at a loss as to how to move on, and every attempt she makes results in failure. Just when she’s ready to quit, a sexy biker is there to push her out of her comfort zone.
Under Tobias’ patient guidance, Audrey slowly makes her way back to herself. She lands a job that she adores, and she thinks she’s finally found her place in this world. Most surprisingly, though, she finds herself falling in love with a man that honestly scares her to death.
Just when she vows to take that final step that’ll put her past in her past forever, the life she wants to live is yanked away. Leaving her with nothing to pick up the pieces.

Header For the Love of Beard

4.5 ‘Healing Hearts’ Stars

Hot damn! Lani Lynn Vale did it again, and I’m equal parts sad to see my LLV’s FAV series go (though we know we’ll get more at some point from the Dixie Wardens Rejects, yay) and so, so very happy, because For The Love of Beard, Tobias and Audrey story, really was the PERFECT conclusion for the series. A story of rebirth and healing at its very best, with Toby stealing my heart with the way he cherished and loved Audrey from their very first encounter! I Adored these two, their tale and all the feelings they created, so very much!

As we know from Beard Up – if you haven’t yet read this amazing story, you NEED to! – Tobias was sent to save and protect Audrey from a possible and terrible fate, what he hadn’t counted was to fall in love at the spot.

I was that annoying man who followed her around like a goddamned puppy.

 

It was the longest two days I’d ever experienced. 
On the plus side, we got all her crap packed. The downside? I lost my heart.

Audrey, as we LLV’s fans know, is Tunnel’s sister, and was horribly sexually assaulted six years prior – Life To My Flight – and has sense retracted on to herself, just revealing a snappy and sassy persona, and kidding her true self, and protecting her heart behind steel walls.

Fully acknowledging all this and the rough path that laid ahead for him, Tobias took an amazing way to approach Audrey’s prickly demeanor, showing how much he understood and cared for her beyond everything else. 

On the outside, I may look undamaged. But if it was possible to see to the heart of a person, mine would look torn, mangled and bruised.

Toby really was the perfect match for her in every way, and I couldn’t have pictured a better person to understand all that Audrey had been trough and its subsequent damaged. After all broken souls and damaged hearts is something his family is well versed in. Something that luckily Lani will allow us to explore in her upcoming new series, Hail Raisers.

Through a lot of patience, true love and care, Audrey’s soul slowly started to heal, and Toby’s heart, to his own surprise, gained a new life, in his love for her. They truly healed one another.

All of it was gone, and in its place was Audrey. 
She surrounded me, filled my heart, and I never wanted her to leave.

And when Audrey couldn’t resist the handsome, tattooed and bearded biker, that was a standing feature in her life, anymore, and gave in to their attraction, and let go, it was everything and more that Toby could have wished for, so much more. It was explosive! 

He plundered my mouth, his tongue tangling with my own, as he claimed me. 
And it was a claiming. Everything in that kiss told me exactly what I needed to know.
I was his. Now. Tomorrow, and next week. He wanted me, and I had to either accept it, or fight.

Once that line was crossed there was no stopping them, and oh boy, were they HOT!!! Prepare yourself, because this book has the steamiest sex scenes in any of Lani Lynn Vale’s book! *cue fanning myself*

Until then, I’m going to be the best roommate you’ve ever had.” 
“A roommate with benefits?”  She started to chuckle. “Will you sneak into my room at night and have your dirty way with me, Mr. Dixie Warden Reject?” 
I grinned widely. “Yeah, but you won’t be leaving my bed after we’re done.” 
“Why is that?” I turned my serious eyes back to the road, too. 
“Because you won’t be able to feel your legs until morning.”

And their banter! It was so incredible awesome and hilarious at times! I’ll say it again, and again, truly PERFECT MATCH!

I was more than aware of the consequences. I’ve attended nine police officer funerals in my years as a cop. I knew better than she did the sacrifices we had to make each day, and the possibility of putting that shield on over our hearts one day, but not the next.

As per LLV usual we have all those suspenseful, hilarious, steamy and emotional moments, as well as a touching sensibilization for the hard and dangerous reality that is working in Law Enforcement. Lani’s main characters, are, imo, so incredibly enticing for the realism in which she portraits them, and Tobias and Audrey are the perfect example of it. I loved them beyond words, and I’m said to see these Rejects go, but I’m sure this isn’t the last of we’ll see of them. Now, counting down the days until LLV’s new series and their first installments, Pitch Please and Hail No! Lani’s really spoils us rotten, and I couldn’t love her more for it! <3 <3 <3 <3 <3

There were a lot of people in love in the world, but only the ones who truly felt it the deepest, and were willing to fight for that love, were the ones that stayed together.

“I love you, Audrey Morrison, soon-to-be Hail.” I squeezed his neck tighter. “I love you right back, Tobias Hail.

Synopsis
 

Ghost [gohst] noun:  the soul of a dead person, a disembodied, vague, shadowy spirit wandering among or haunting living persons; a mere shadow or semblance; a trace.

That noun sums up Ghost and what his life has become with painful precision.  He is barely living, merely existing but never thriving. There wasn’t much that could pull him from the darkness he willingly inhabits…except one thing.  Her.

She is the reason he’s done what he’s done, and his life has become what it has become.

He haunts his former life, lurking in the background, surviving on occasional glimpses of the only thing good that is left in his miserable life. The horror he has inflicted upon her is nothing compared to the terror that waits for her when someone moves in to take her from him.

The thing about being stuck in the past is that it is like walking through life backwards. She is always looking back, so she doesn’t see what is happening in front of her. Unfortunately for her, it turns out that the ghosts of the past aren’t nearly as terrifying as the monsters of the future.

They say that true love is like a ghost, something that many talk about but few have seen. It’s a good thing for that, too, because he’ll need that element of surprise to protect her. Hopefully when the dust settles, he’ll be able to resurrect more than just himself.

5 Million ‘7 X Unforgettable’ Stars!!!

Mind blown! Seriously, completely and utterly blown away! First, Lani Lynn Vale was killing us with the suspense around Ghost’s identity – which I’m not even hinting at, btw, believe me you’ll thank me for hanging onto every word until it’s revealed, like I did -, and now, she totally and utterly KILLED IT with Ghost’s story!!!
Since the very first book of the Dixie Wardens Rejects, we all been dying to know and read Ghost’s story, so much so that ended up as origin and speculation in endless threads on media. Beard Up became of the most anticipated Release of the year, and undoubtedly of all of LLV’s books.
Well, I can honestly say all the anticipation and built up were surpassed by the book, and specially the main couple. I never thought it would be possible to come up with a explanation for Ghost’s decision where I would completely forgive him, but damn, Lani sure proved me wrong, because I was rendered speechless. Completely understandable and without another choice, no one would have chosen the alternative, so I hurt for him, as much as for his wife and child.
His wife’s reaction was another of the highlights, totally unexpected, and so humanly realistic, I cried right along with her, and felt what she felt.

“I made a promise to myself a long time ago,” she said, her voice heavy with grief. “To God. To anyone that would listen.”
I swallowed thickly, not sure that I wanted to hear what she had to say.
“What?”
“That if I ever got another chance…if you came back to me some way, that I wouldn’t squander it. I wouldn’t scream. I wouldn’t yell. I wouldn’t question. I wouldn’t hate. I’d love you. I’d love you for every single second that you were gone. I’d hug you. Kiss you. Never let go.” 

More of a surprising, honest and heartfelt explanation I couldn’t have asked for. Their reunion brought simultaneously to tear and smiles, and heart as full as the MCs themselves. I adored every devoted word, every caring gesture and loving feelings. Beard Up was one of the most realistic and truly heartfelt stories I’ve ever read. This married couple’s love and devotion made me fall in love all over again, not only with Lani Lynn Vale’s writing, but with all Romance all over again! Top Three best reads of the year and fav LLV of all time! <3 <3 <3 <3 <3

My heart was full.
I had the love of my life in my arms, and our kids in our bed. My club—both of them—at my back.
It was a long, painful road back to this point. I’d never take any of this for granted because life just didn’t get any better than this.
