R E V I E W ➠ Trying To Score by Kendall Ryan


Teddy King excels at many things. Playing hockey. Check. Scoring on and off the ice. Check. Being stupidly attractive … Double check.
I knew him way back when. Before he was the guy everyone wanted a piece of, he was just a rebellious college co-ed and one of my more energetic study partners.
But secrets have a way of getting out, and a steamy encounter from our college days (that we probably shouldn’t have filmed) is about to cause a major scandal. Unless we can work together to stop it.
Teddy’s no stranger to hard work … but the thing he wants most?
Is me.

RELEASE DATE: November 12, 2019

Lipstick stains on my skin, kiss marks along my thigh and, oh fuck, on my cock. I don’t think I’ll ever be able to get this visual out of my head. Not that I’d ever wanted to.
I’m gone for her–big fucking time.

Not my first read by author & I have read every single book in this amazing series!! Needing more of course I was super excited for this one too!! And am SO GLAD I got a chance to read and review this one, A MUST READ! ABSOLUTELY LOVED LOVED LOVED IT!!

This is the story of Teddy and Sara, Teddy who has been in the previous books and the one I kept thinking WILL HE HAVING HIS OWN BOOK and boom, prayer answered. Something about him, young at heart and just so beautiful, handsome and sexy. Just something about him, even though he is a little wild and crazy, deep down the love her hides and has…breathtaking! Until that one time in the bathroom and a video, Teddy is kicking himself and hoping he can be spared. But no luck, Sara is the lucky lawyer who is tasked with helping Teddy out. She is determined, beautiful, smart and catching. No time for anything but her work, that focus of her’s is admirable. When the two combine it’s like putting oil and water together. What’s beautiful about this is the rawness of both the main characters.

I can safely say that this is one of my favorite’s of Kendall Ryan!!

Watch them try to figure it all out!!

R E V I E W ➠ Dirty Secret by Mira Lyn Kelly


In my defense, I didn’t know she was his sister…
A sexy hockey standalone from USA TODAY bestselling author Mira Lyn Kelly
This team hates me. Something about my chronic case of resting prick face and that thing with the captain when the season started. My fist, his jaw. Yeah, we go back and not in a good way.
Coach says no more “confrontational BS” or I don’t play at all. And that’s a hit my career in the NHL can’t take. So the plan is simple. Keep my head down and finish out my contract with my fists checked.
There’s just one problem.
Allie. The girl from Vancouver eight months ago. The one with the sexy, shy, and sinfully bold smile and the sweetest, wettest mouth I ever tasted. The girl who blew my mind and then blew out of my life without giving me her number.
Turns out she’s the captain’s little sister. And even though my career depends on it… I can’t stay away from her.

RELEASE DATE: October 19, 2019

I keep asking myself what it is about her that’s got me so tied up…

New to me author and books! Thank you to the author for my ARC to review. Also I love me some sports romance so it wasn’t a hardship. Also, I am glad I had the chance to review because I absolutely loved it!

Vaughn is my type of hero, moody, rough, grumpy but so very sexy and handsome with a hidden secret big heart. Seriously am in love with Vaughn!! Natalie is also the perfect heroine…so beautiful but she has no idea, sweet, smart…pretty much a kind hearted person always looking out for everyone’s else. When they two come together…fireworks. One night is all it took for Vaughn to not be able to get Nat out of his system. But he is not able to have her again and it’s killing him. When they cross path’s again it’s under rather difficult circumstances. After the initial shock they can’t deny their chemistry, explosive beautiful chemistry that is. The forbidden factor in this was perfect. I felt every emotion and the story line was superb. Fell in love with the main characters right off the bat, the side characters were likable and fit well. The SWOON ration on this is off the charts too, and let’s not mention the sexy scenes…scorching and steamy with so much romance. *sigh*

I will be reading more by this author because I totally fell in love with this!

R E V I E W ➠ The Dugout by Meghan Quinn


Let me ask you a question:
If someone is vying for your spot on a team and just so happens to injure you during practice, would you believe it was on purpose?
Word around campus is . . . it was no accident.
That injury has cost me everything; my starting position, my junior year—and the draft. Now, I’m a senior fresh off recovery, struggling to find my groove, until the day I run into a nervous, fidgety, girl with freckles, in the dining hall.
They call Milly Potter The Baseball Whisperer, The Diamond Wizard, and The Epitome of All Knowledge. She believes in baseball. She breathes it. She’s the queen of an infamous dynasty, but no one actually knows who she really is, and she plans to keep it that way.
One mishap in the panini line, one miscommunication in the weight room, and many failed attempts at an apology equal up to one solid truth — Milly Potter never wants to speak to me again — no matter how good my forearms look.
Little do we both know, she’s about to become more than just my fairy ballmother. 

RELEASE DATE: September 19, 2019

“That was sexy as shit,but I’m going to make you pay for that later.”
I can’t wait.

-The Dugout

Not my first read by author, I actually have read her before all my bookstagramming but since then have been thankfully able to upkeep with all her releases. Been waiting for this one, a broody and funny big sexy man? MMMM yes please!

Carson is a handsome, funny and smart man, with a nick for Baseball, when an incident takes all of it away from him, he goes from being the happy go lucky guy to the DON’T EVEN LOOK AT ME OR BREATHE AT ME or I’ll bite your head off guy. Withdrawing himself away from everyone but his close buddies. Oh, and a dick…major major one!

In comes Milly who has to be my favorite thus far! I mean she is quirky, funny, adorable and a badass when it comes to baseball. She is clumsy and just adorable I don’t know how else to describe her. Really really fell in love with her, nothing surprising since the author has a keen for writing amazing characters!!

I loved watching Carson and Milly come together, their adventurous, laughs, faults…the sizzling chemistry and other exciting sexy things 😉 As much laughter and fun you get it really does go in depth with the feelings, incidents, and all the beautiful romantic SWOON! So much of it in here, once Carson get’s his head out of his ass…SO INTENSE AND BEAUTIFUL!! A must read in my book!!

Her celebrity crush.
And the newest fighter to train in her gym.

She’s got this….Maybe.
Gage ‘The Kraken’ James is the reigning MMA Heavyweight Champion.

His coach’s daughter.

RELEASE DATE: September 8, 2019

And sweet mother of all things Calvin Klein underwear model. He was Michelangelo perfection in his white boxer briefs. Mark Wahlberg has nothing on Gage James.


“I like when you wear your hair up.” He whispered the words as his lips trailed down the curve of her neck, setting off shivers in their wake. “It gives me east access to do this.” His teeth bit down on the tendon of her neck, marking her like an alpha would his mate. If she wasn’t already sitting, her knees surely would’ve given out and her ass would have been on the floor, melted into a puddle of desire.

New to me Author & books, but my bookwifey #2 (Britney) told me a little about it and I needed to read it, also the BLURB caught my eye! Glad I gave it a try, wow this book! I have always had a thing for MMA fighters and in books, even better!! Gage & Rocky were something else, in the best way!!

Rocky is one bad-ass woman. She works at her family’s training gym. She is very independent, very loyal and loud! All the woman in the group are, but Rocky to me seems a little lost as in, she really just want’s to be loved. So when she meets her crush-celebrity on a night out, she is smitten and also in shock at the fact that the next time she sees’s Gage is at her work. Let the cat-and-mouse games begin. It’s rather sweet, Gage may be a big scary fighter but deep down a heart of gold and Rocky may show she has it all together but sometimes even the bad-ass girls need a hand.

They play around, building that sexual foreplay and boy, this may be a slow-burn in a sense but when it’s there IT BURNS big and bright! *sizzling* sometimes things that burn so bring, burn-out but will either tap-out before the sizzle get’s too hot?
To me this whole everything was a lot of fun to read, getting to know all the side characters, their duo and more. Fun, exciting and sexy read!!

R E V I E W ➠ The Hardest Hit by A.S. Teague


My friends used to tell me ‘What happens in Vegas stays in Vegas.’ Clearly they lied, because there was no way the chemistry I had with Mel could ever be left behind.
However, my children, her career, and nine hundred miles between us meant that for seven years, Melanie Holstein was the one who got away.
I was Aiden Shaw, first-round draft pick turned the best quarterback the league had ever seen. I worked hard to secure my position in football history while balancing life as a single dad. Through it all, my Vegas spitfire was never far from my mind.
And considering her best friend was now with my best friend, it was pure and utter torture.
When my career took a devastating turn, Mel was the first person at my side. I was broken and defeated, but that stubborn woman was determined to piece me back together.
I liked to pretend Mel and I were destined for greatness, but Lady Luck had never been on our side. And the tragedy that followed might have been the hardest hit of all.

RELEASE DATE: September 5, 2019

This is a NEW to me author & books but the BLURB is what caught my eye! So I was kind of going in blind as I say!!

This was a fun start, Mel and Aiden met in Vegas. And NO the ‘what happens in vegas stays in vegas’ term did not apply to Aiden because he couldn’t get enough of Mel. They spend a beautiful night together and when parted, Aiden pushed to keep Mel in his life. Mel is 8 years older than Aiden and so she feels like she should have her shit together and get this right. Something always went wrong, where Lady Luck was not on Mel’s side, ever! When Aiden is dealt some terrible news, Mel is determined to be there for him, help him through this.

This is a slow burn, friends-to-lovers romance with a twist. It is a lot more complex then it seems, in the good way of course. I feel for both of there characters and what they endure, now I am usually not a big fan of ‘older’ than Hero Heroines, so to my surprise it was refreshing. There were times she was a little over-powering for my taste but all in all I had a great time reading this and felt every single FEEL of this book!! Go find out if lady luck will finally set Mel free!!

R E V I E W ➠ This Is Love by Natasha Madison


Never fall in love.
That was my motto, and I was sticking to it.
Having my heart broken once was enough, and I never wanted to do it again.
He was supposed to be a one-night stand, the only thing I do.
One rule shouldn’t be so hard to follow, but then I went back for seconds, then thirds. 
After that, I lost count of the number of times I lost myself in his arms.
When I wasn’t paying attention, my guard slipped.

They call me Private Mark for a reason—my whole life is a secret.
For two years, we danced around each other until I got her right where I wanted her … under me. Now that I had her, I wasn’t letting her go. I thought we were on the same page.
I thought we were building something great.
Boy, was I ever wrong.
I had no idea that while I was falling in love, she was trying to convince herself we were temporary.
She thought I’d walk away.
She was wrong.
Now it’s time to convince her she wants us too and to show her that the crazy, wild thing we have … This Is Love.

RELEASE DATE: September 3, 2019

“He kissed me,” I tell her.
“Okay,” she says. “You’ve kissed other men.”
“Yes, but this one was different. My stomach did a thing.”

Under The Sea

The second mt head hits the pillow, I’m out like a light, and he’s there, waiting for me in my dreams. His smile, his touch, everything is there, and when my phone rings, I feel like I’m in that movie Groundhog Day.

Not my first read by author and I have read the first 2 books in the series which I LOVED! I don’t know where to start with this BEAUTIFUL book! I mean the more I read the author’s book the more I fall in love not just with the writing but with all the characters, especially this series!! Hand’s down the TOP FAVORITE of mine from this author!!

This is the story of Mark & Vivienne who is the best friend of Karrie married to Matthew who is on the same hockey team ask Mark. So she appeared in the previous books and I have always loved her in them, something about her. When I realized she would be getting her own story I couldn’t wait.

About the characters:
Vivienne: She is french but living in the states and called the states her home. She is rich but also works for a new paper column that no one but her best friend knows about. She is a woman who has it all but is in pain. The memory of what she went through shaped her into the woman she is today. A no more than 4 sexual encounters or it get’s to complicated. She likes to flavor and isn’t afraid to speak her mind and be up front [my kind of woman].
Mark: Mark is the Hockey Team’s Goalie but also a business man, meaning the man is richer than God it seems. He has been making smart money decisions since day one and today he stands to have whatever he wants, and that whatever is Vivienne [the un-touchable]. Mark is from a Greek family and half Italian, so bet your ass that he is not only tall and handsome but gorgeous, sexy with a beard and a heart of gold. The “traditional” man sense. [Also MY type of man]

The story starts of with a heartbreak and all the painful feelings you can imagine. Vivienne is the receiver of this pain, again shaped her who she is today. When she run’s into Mark LITERALLY he doesn’t hesitate to ask her to out. She figures since it’s been a while for her, she would just jump on it and leave. One night with PM [Private Mark] and she thought it would be enough, their kiss was MAGICAL and their night, something only one can dream of. But she would never say that out loud, she has never felt this way before and wasn’t sure what to do. Hell she though she was dying. What’s a girl to do? Well scratch her itch and call it good!! Mark had other plans!!

The other plans Mark had only lead him to heartbreak, well heartbreak for everyone you see, PM had one thing in mind while Vivienne had another…or so she told herself at least. When push comes to shove will Vivienne be able to let go finally?

R E V I E W ➠ The Truth About Cowboys by Lisa Renee Jones

Texas Heat Book #1


I had my life figured out.
Engaged to a successful man.
About to make partner at my firm.
Bought a high-rise apartment in downtown Dallas.

And then, poof, it’s all gone. Now, like in some cheesy romantic comedy, my car has broken down in the pouring rain on my way to “find myself” in The Middle of Nowhere, Texas. Cue hot guy coming to my rescue and changing my tire. This is the part where we flirt and have a meet-cute, right? That’s how it works in romance novels, and I should know—after all, I’m coming to Texas to write my own cowboy romance. But nope. This sexy cowboy lights into me about not being prepared for the country roads and how inappropriate my high-heeled boots are.
Little did I know, Jason Jenks would tilt my world into a new dimension with his sinful smirk and his bad attitude. Every time I turn around, he’s there to reluctantly save the day. And every time, I think there may be something to that spark we ignite. But there’s a reason the majority of country songs are about broken hearts. The closer I get to this man, the closer I get to learning the truth about cowboys.

My paperback copy I got!

RELEASE DATE: August 27, 2019

The words pour out of me, and it’s really an easy story. It’s a cowboy and a city girl. It’s romance I now know. Only the one on my computer is going to have a happy ending, even if mine doesn’t.

This is a NEW to me author and books. I was fortunate enough to have received a paperback (DIFFERENT COVER) ARC from the author and publishing company. I always enjoyed Cowboy Romance so I was looking forward to reading this!!

I have to say that I am so glad to have had a chance to read this. The hero is ALPHA, SEXY and swoon worthy while the heroine is STRONG, BEAUTIFUL and very SASSY. Ex baseball player vs. city girl stuck in the country. When two polar opposites unite, you know what happens? Things melt!! This was so much fun to read, the characters, the story itself and of course the words! Pleasantly surprised at how this turned out.

Jessica is a divorce attorney who found her fiancee in bed with another woman, not only that but with a better looking and younger woman. She sets out to the country to clear her head and also write a book, after all the events that occurred she just needed to get away. That’s when she runs into sexy cowboy Jason who is of course, always ready to lend a hand. Right of the bet their chemistry is off the chart scorching. But Jason has learned his lesson with woman especially city girls, and is treading carefully.

What happens when an old lady set’s you up? Well you go along with it of course, not like their chemistry alone can’t get them close enough to one another. BUT there are far too many secrets on both ends, not to mention the obstacles between them. Jason really struggles to not mare his past and future, which causes Jessica to have doubts and of course question everything. Can these two make it out in the end? Or, will they forever let their past and mistakes hold them back.

GAH, I really have to say how much I enjoyed this read! Talk about the perfect cowboy and city girl romance. It’s a new love so always fun for me to read, they didn’t know each other and you get both POV’s so that’s also a bonus. Let’s not forget about MARTHA the amazing grandma haha and Jessica’s cat THE DEVIL one! GREAT READ!

R E V I E W ➠ Playing For Keeps by Kendall Ryan



I’ve never been so stupid in my entire life.
Elise Parrish, my teammate’s incredibly sweet and gorgeous younger sister, should have been off-limits, but my hockey stick didn’t get the memo.
After our team won the championship, our flirting turned physical, and I took her to bed. Then shame sent her running the next morning from our catastrophic mistake.
She thinks I don’t remember that night – but every detail is burned into my brain so deeply, I’ll never forget. The feel of her in my arms, the soft whimpers of pleasure I coaxed from her perfect lips….
And now I’ve spent three months trying to get her out of my head, but I’m starting to understand she’s the only girl I’ll ever want.
I have one shot to show her I can be exactly what she needs, but Elise won’t be easily convinced.
That’s okay, because I’m good under pressure, and this time, I’m playing for keeps.

Get ready to meet your new favorite hot jocks in an all new stand-alone novel. If you like sexy, confident men who know how to handle a stick (on and off the ice), and smart women who are strong enough to keep all those big egos in check, this series of athlete romances is perfect for you!

RELEASE DATE: August 13, 2019

He kisses like he plays hockey– with complete confidence and laser focus.


“Is that a hockey stick, or are you just happy to see me? I tease.


⇨ R E V I E W ⇦

Not my first read by author, one of my top favorites! New series are always exciting and I for one after reading this one a excited for more!

Justin is the big brother’s best friend, Elise is the little sister that is untouchable. Elise is just out of collage age and Justin is a bit older, Owen’s age of course, so what happens when one night alcohol is involved? Well, you know what they say about alcohol, you always are truly you when consuming it…okay I made that up but it’s true!

When a beautiful night of passion and other things I can’t say turn sour the next morning, what’s a girl to do…after-all HE did this all to himself. Forward a few months and can he really stay away> Will Elise move on for good, find that someone she deserves…someone who isn’t Justin?

What comes next is light hearted, fun, flirty, passionate and heart-crushing! The side characters are wonderful along with the hero and heroine, but if I had to chose I think I would go with Justin, someone about him. Big scary sexy hockey player but the biggest heart made of gold. Something about him drew me, and nooooo not just because the cover model’s arm is PORN for me but…okay a little…can’t blame a girl, yumm!
