R E V I E W ➠ Moon Shot by Tara Wyatt




Dallas Longhorns manager Javier Flores’ plate isn’t just full—it’s overflowing. Not only is he focused on taking the Longhorns to the World Series this year, but he’s also fighting his ex-wife for shared custody of his two daughters. He doesn’t have room for distractions, even if he is lonely. But when he wakes up beside his nemesis, sports agent Aerin Stone, the morning after a few too many drinks at a wedding reception, he is definitely distracted.
Aerin knows better than most what it’s like to have her heart ripped into a million pieces. She knows what it means to have her entire world crash and burn. And she knows that she’s better off alone, even if she did have the best sex of her life with Javi Flores. It doesn’t matter how good it was, because it can’t ever happen again. After all, she doesn’t even like him. He’s too uptight, too bossy, too sexy. Too dangerous. Too risky for her wounded heart.
But one night isn’t enough to quench the pent-up lust burning between Javi and Aerin, and for once they agree on something: they want more, even if it’s the worst idea either of them has ever had. Because everyone knows what they say about the best laid plans…

RELEASE DATE: August 18, 2020

NEW to me author and books! I am so glad that I took this chance because I really really enjoyed this read!

One drunken night after a wedding, has Javi Flores reminding himself why he can never do this again, why he can’t have normal because not only is he under pressure job wise but in a nasty custody battle with his ex. Of all people to wake up next to it had to me his nemesis Aerin Stone. Aerin which by the way is a beautiful name but my heart goes out to her, not only does she have her walls up but she is so guarded not sure anyone can break in. Hahah but little do they both know, fate is about to throw a curve ball and given them plenty of chances to meet again, only making their growing attraction they both keep denying to one another that much stronger every time.

Favorite part about the characters is that they are well lived, in their early 40s and mature, funny and just feel real. The banter between them seemed more real to me, stronger and let’s not forget their chemistry and how sizzling this is. Very sizzling!! I would most definitely read more of the author ad in this series!

R E V I E W ➠ Egotistical Jerk by A.K. MacBride




I had one goal: To learn from Sebastian Ryker.
He was an award-winning physician in his field of medicine.
A genius who could diagnose you with the barest of symptoms.
The best of the best.
Too bad he turned out to be an egotistical jerk.
Mere hours into my first day, I realized that the man I had idolized for years didn’t live up to the hype.
He was rude, arrogant, and totally full of… himself.
It was clear that my presence bothered him, that I was nothing more than an irritation.
So, why did I want to melt into a puddle whenever those dark eyes were trained on me?
And why didn’t I listen when my head warned my heart that he’d break it in two?
I had one goal: To learn from Sebastian Ryker, not fall in love with him.

RELEASE DATE: August 16, 2020

NEW to me author and books! Now this author is the sweetest and after reading the blurb I KNEW i had to give this a go. I was so pleasantly surprised and in love with this!

Usually you get one or the other when it comes to the medical field but in this case both hero and heroine are doctors, stubborn and each with a heart of gold that not everyone may know about. Oh Dr Sebastian Ryker you sexy handsome and swoony man, this was so much fun to watch unfold when Dr Mia Phillips flips his world and thoughts around. Love me a confident and feisty heroine that isn’t over bearing but enough to grip you in. The hero and heroine together were beyond words, something about them grabbed you in and made you want more, read faster, try to figure it out but what you got it that yes but also you got to go on for a ride that was fun, sweet, sensual, sexy, lots happening but in a good way. I don’t want to give out too much because this really is a beautiful addition to the Cocky Hero Club and I would most definitely read more by this author, if she say wants to I don’t know just give us more of Mia and Sebastian please! There wasn’t too much debacle, just enough heat and sweet, their banter, their heated looks, GAH really these two were made for one another and I had so much fun watching them realize it.

RELEASE DATE: August 16, 2020


NEW to me author and books! I am usually not one for Political or Star Romance but I wanted to throw myself out there plus I heard some good thing about it prior to singing up.

This is a love story where the hero and heroine DO NOT DO LOVE, they are both focus on their career and lives to want anything romantic involved. The hero is a smart, handsome, sexy, arrogant at times a-hole but in alpha way man and the heroine is a woman of the screen, front row always, plastering a different face…even if she loves it, she does have doubts on what she does. Ethan and Maya as characters were perfect for one another yes, but I was missing something here, not sure if I’ve read too many of these but I was missing a UMPF a CLIMAX BOOM it feels like!

R E V I E W ➠ No Mercy by D.M. Davis




When it comes to protecting his angel, he has no mercy.
Gabriel:
The first time I saw her, she made my pulse dance to a rhythm that matched the sway of her hips.
The second time I saw her, she was in the arms of my best friend.
That broken, rusty organ in my chest hasn’t beaten since.
Blood doesn’t run through these veins, it’s pure, unleaded determination.
I’ve fought my whole life. For safety. For Food. For my family.
Five years later, I’m fighting for my position in the MMA world.
No distractions.
Only, my angel needs me, and that tin can behind my ribs found its beat again
Francesca:
Gabriel “No Mercy” Stone earned his fight-name long before he entered the octagon.
He’s been a thorn in my side for years.
He takes pleasure in proving his nickname to me at every turn.
He’s relentless. He’s heartless.
Until one day he’s not.
It took the worst day of my life for Gabriel to show me mercy.
Broken and afraid, I let him piece me back together.
He offers me everything yet promises nothing.
When a man shows he has no mercy, you should believe him.

D.M. Davis’ No Mercy is a heart-wrenching, enemies to lovers, sexy, contemporary romance written in K. Bromberg’s Everyday Heroes Worlds project, and is the first book in the Black Ops MMA series.

RELEASE DATE: August 13, 2020

When a man shows he has not mercy, you should believe him.

-Frankie

NEW to me author and books. I not only of course love all of K. Brombergs books and have read them multiple times. So this Everyday Hero’s Worlds project, I was super excited to read this. As well as the blurb that ought my eye!

Well this was a pleasant surprise, I won’t lie I was a little worried but having read all of K. Bromberg’s boks and familiar with the surrounding, this not only fit well in but also would love to read more and hope there is more in this series. The heroine was by far my favorite, she was strong enough but vulnerable enough for my taste. THE HERO let’s not kid ourselves we all love an alpha hero but this one was not only alpha but sensual, sweet and loving. Big heart ALPHA hero’s are a dime a dozen and I am in love with them. The story line fit well and I will be getting a paperback of this for sure!

Sure, I could drop an L bomb…except that once imploded my heart. But when her past collides with my desired future, can I risk everything and dare Masey to stay with me forever?

RELEASE DATE: July 28, 2020

Not my first read by the author, and I kind of jumped the gun and read book #6 in this series but I’ve wanted to catch up on it. This one WOWed me!

“I love it when you’re polite about wanting something dirty.”

This was a unique love story. I thought it was going to go one way but ended up going an ever better way. It was very sweet, sexy, fun and romantic! The hero is a easy going man that has had his fun in life, until the day a one-nighter shows back up with the cutest baby ever and gives him full custody. When his sister-in-law asks him for one of the most strangest favors ever, he really has to think about it…until he sees HER! The heroine is a sweetheart, she really really is sweet and after spending years with a man that manipulated her, she didn’t think much of herself until HIM. He shows her what she has been missing, and she show’s him what he needs.

Even if I didn’t read the other’s which this book makes me want to, this was a beautiful read and no triggers for me and actually interesting because the heroine is a BEAUTY INFLUENCER and the hero is a YACH SAILOR not sure if that’s what it is, but he charters yachts for trips. Really different in a good way read!

R E V I E W ➠ Any Day Now by Lani Lynn Vale




Amelia loves her good friend, Avery. So much so that she agrees to do the stupidest thing ever
A stranger photo shoot
You know the type. The photographer takes photos of two individuals. Two individuals that, until that day, have never met in their life
The moment she shows up at the photo shoot, she knows that she made a terrible decision
Why? Because the total stranger about to be in an intimate photo shoot with her is the hottest thing that’s ever walked the streets of Kilgore, Texas. If not the entire US of A.
Adam wasn’t sure why the hell he agreed to something so stupid
Call it temporary lapse of sanity
When the photographer who shot his photo for the Kilgore Police Department’s benefit calendar asked him for a favor, he couldn’t say no. Not without looking like a jerk seeing as it was benefiting the Fallen Officer Foundation that he played a rather large part in
Whatever it was that made him agree, he quickly realizes that it’s not worth it. Not when he walks into the studio and sees the massive bed with blood-red sheets dominating the middle of the room
So uncomfortable he is at the sight, he’s about to head straight out the door and not look back when she walks in.
Amelia steals his breath away with just one glance, and all of a sudden, getting this stranger into his arms with his mouth on hers sounds like the best idea ever.

RELEASE DATE: August 11, 2020

Not my first read by he author, I am a huge fan and have read a very good amount of all her books. She is also one of my very firsts reads, back in the day authors. This one the blurb really caught my eye, if you know Lani she is well known for her unique characters and story lines.

Of all the books I have been reading of Lani, this one has to be a top top favorite. This INSTA-LOVE had me wanting more, reading faster, experiencing every feeling…Adam and Amelia are the perfect character couple! This is sweet, sexy and fun too because the theme is Stranger Photo Shoot and it did not disappoint! Adam has you failing in love with him SO FAST, his alpha side, his big heart and the SWOON turn that shit up because it’s unbelievable in this story! Amelia, sweet sweet Amelia, I say that lightly because she is a HOOT. Outgoing, fun, firecracker…after all she does come from a fun family. That said, when you put these two together, you get funny laugh out loud moments, swoony make your heart melt moment and fire-y need to change sexy moments! Loved everything about this!

R E V I E W ➠ Inked In Lies by Giana Darling




He moved in next door.
Handsome as sin, older in a way that meant forbidden.
He had tattoos on his hands and wickedness tucked in his grin.
I was a goner as girl to a man they called Casanova for a reason. He would never love me, at least not the way I needed him to.
I tried to move on. But I couldn’t turn my back on him or The Fallen MC.
So when they needed me most, I offered the only thing of value I could use to help them.
My body.
And when helping them meant putting my life on the line, Nova had to decide just how much he was willing to do to get me out alive.

RELEASE DATE: July 31, 2020

NEW TO ME author and books! This was something very new to me when it comes to the trope and type. I unfortunately was not 100% able to connect only because it was mostly one-sided love, a Unrequited love if you will. The Ag-Gap did not help for me, that is one trope I was wary about. There I say the characters were a bit immature for me. But that is my style, I really wanted to push myself out there with this type. Also it had a HUGE trigger for me (Love-triangle/sharing) I don’t want to give out much but that is a HUGE trigger of mine. I twas hard for me to fully finish invested.

That said I really am not sure how to go about this review without obviously sounding out my dislikes because that’s what happens when one has triggers in a book and or dislikes in actions, characters or events. I thought I could kind of get with it I guess but it felt like a YA version of dark and biker MC type, the romance was minimal in this one. It is very erotic and sexy. I just, I feel bad I couldn’t connect but it really was not for me or my type, I wanted to give it a try, I will say that I appreciate the authors words and writing because it flowed very well and the words worked, it was just the style of story and characters did not work for me. I appreciate a chance to REVIEW this.

R E V I E W ➠ Reckless At Heart by Zoe York




“Daddy, I’m pregnant.
The last three words Owen Kincaid ever wanted to hear from his teenage daughter. The firefighter knows how hard it is to have a kid when you’re still a kid yourself. He did it, and now eighteen years later, history is repeating itself. To say he’s beating himself up is an understatement. The last thing he needs is to fall head-over-heels in lust with his daughter’s midwife
Kerry Humphrey hates her new client’s father. She has no reason to hate him, except for the fact he’s tall and brooding and always there, hovering in the background of appointments. And the crackle of chemistry every time their eyes meet. She hates that, too
Everything about their attraction is ill-fated. But it won’t go away. Maybe, for one night, they can be… Reckless at Heart.

RELEASE DATE: June 2, 2020

Kerry’s kisses matched the way she looked at him. Teasing, curious. Sex in a way hat seemed to have no limit.

Not my first read by the author, I actually have read this author before I even started anything and love her writing style.

Single/Dad forbidden romances are the greatest combo ever! I really REALLY enjoyed the entire story and plus I really like the author’s writing style and have been reading her books for a while. Owen Kincaid the hero, i can’t express his sexiness, something so manly and just hot. He was someone you could not figure out easy, and can we just mention that his 18 year old daughter got pregnant and he is not only a sexy dad but sexy grandpa? YEAH! The heroine is in her mid-thirties and happens to be the hero’s daughter’s mid-wife and someone who HATES the hero for being arrogant, pushy and in her face at all times. Their relationship is so complex yet simple. What makes this so fun is because the hero is mature yet really looking forward to being a bachelor and the single life, after all his daughter made the same mistake he did by having her at the same age. The heroine is ready for more, as in relationship, stability and a child. Every turn is new and unexpected and I would highly recommend this book, the author really does a fantastic job at keeping you on your toes while giving you what you want!

RELEASE DATE: August 4, 2020

Not my first read by the author, and I also have read the first book in this series so I was prepared for this one!

I have to say I loved the first book but this was something else, in a good way. The heroine is a PI and the hero happens to be a FAMOUS FOOTBALL player that had something happen to him and it needed solving. It was the perfect job for the heroine, it was really fun and sweet. I don’t want to give too much out because it;s worth the read. Lot’s of adventure, secrets, mystery and suspense all mixed with some sweet romance and hot love scenes!

R E V I E W ➠ The Rivals by Vi Keeland




The feud between Weston Lockwood and me started at the altar.
Only neither of us attended the wedding, and the nuptials happened decades before either of us was born.
Our grandfathers had been best friends and business partners, at least up until my grandfather’s wedding day—when his bride-to-be blurted out she couldn’t marry him because she was also in love with Weston‘s grandfather.
The two men spent years fighting over Grace Copeland, who also happened to be their third business partner.  But in the end, neither man could steal half of her heart away from the other.
Eventually, they all went their separate ways. Our grandfathers married other women, and the two men became one of the biggest business rivals in history.
Our fathers continued the family tradition of feuding. And then Weston and I did, too.
For the most part, we kept as much distance as possible.
Until the day the woman who started the feud died—and unexpectedly left one of the most valuable hotels in the world to our grandfathers to share.
Now I’m stuck in a hotel with the man I was born to hate, trying to unravel the mess our families inherited.
As usual, it didn’t take long for us to be at each other’s throats.
Weston Lockwood was everything I hated: tall, smart, cocky, and too gorgeous for his own good.  We were fire and ice. 
But that shouldn’t be an issue. Our families were used to being at war. There was just one minor problem, though. Every time Weston and I fought, we somehow wound up in bed. 

RELEASE DATE: July 13, 2020

Not my first read by the author, I have read all her books and she’s a part of my BEGINNER TEAM, so it means I’ve been reading her books for years and probably will always read her books. Her writing style is to my liking in all of them and every time she comes out with a new book I get super excited!

Not your average office-romance, no these are not just 2 people that have known each other since they were young but they are part of the bigger rivalry for many years. Weston is a man that carries a lot of burden on his shoulder, the guilt, the unease, broken in a lot of ways. Very sexy tall, dark and handsome, yes, but broken. Sophia is a woman that learned her lesson at age 18, and never again. Or so she thinks, but lines can’t be blurred with the one man she despises, for many years, even if that’s what she has to keep telling herself. When they both fall on old ways, new ground rules are set. that only brought out the fun in the story, until well when all you know is to lie and hide people from yourself, does Weston fall on his old ways? This book is seriously ALL VI writing, so there is JUST that that you’ll love, it’s fun, the banter, sexual tension but also lies and betrayal. After all, was it all really fate?
