R E V I E W ➠ Ridden Hard: A Surprise Baby Romance by Kim Loraine


(Ryker Ranch Book 3)


They call me the wild one.
The Ryker brother who’d rather have more notches on his bedpost than rodeo championships.
I’m good with horses, even better with women. I’ve been warned that sowing my oats might have consequences, but I’m always careful. And there’s nothing wrong with having a little fun.
But the truth is, I want more than fun. I want it all. With the right girl.
So when the most beautiful woman I’ve ever seen shows up at my ranch, it should all fall into place. Except she’s got a big surprise for me. She’s pregnant, and the kid is mine, but she wants nothing to do with me.

RELEASE DATE: December 2, 2020

NEW to me author and books. I originally saw this as a sign-up and recommended it to my Book-Friend Britney to read because she loves Cowboy Romances, and after she read it and told me a little about it I wanted to give it a try.

This is a backwards game, Tristen and Hazel are starting it off a little backwards. When Hazel decides to let loose for one night, after learning news that new ex-bf of 5 years not only moved on after a hot minute but also got engaged then is getting married even faster…well things don’t go as planned. Oh the romance and sexy times portion was spot on and perfect, but Tristen the sexy cowboy that calls her Darlin’ left behind a little more than they both bargained for. After searching to find him again, because well they both didn’t bother more than first name bases on the one night they spend together, she finds out more about the sexy cowboy a.k.a her baby-daddy. And what she finds is beautiful, romantic, sweet and just plain Tristan. But she’s been burned before, she spend 5 years with a man who was always looking for the next best and new things…these two take a ride of adventure and love.

I will say that the peek of the story line, I guess there wasn’t a big build up to it as well as the aftermath, but I enjoyed the story very much and the ending has me wanting to continue these brother’s stories!

R E V I E W ➠ Grip by Lacey Black




Mack
I live to race. It’s in my blood—the smell of dirt and gasoline, the fast cars, the screaming fans. I was the king of a small track in Missouri with the world at my fingertips. I even had the girl, until a call came from the infamous Colton Donavan. I had a choice to make: my dream or the woman I loved. I couldn’t have both.
When an unexpected surprise shows up on my doorstep in the form of a baby, there’s only one woman I trust enough to help me. Lena Stanley, the one I left behind. But being in close proximity to her reminds me of what we used to have, and what I still want. Her.
Lena
The day he walked away to chase his dream was the hardest day of my life, but I powered through. I could never ask Mack to choose between me and the opportunity of a lifetime.
That’s why I pushed him toward the latter, despite the heartache it caused.
Now, he needs my help. The problem is it’s hard to keep old feelings buried. Despite my best efforts, our connection is too powerful to deny. However, as our short time together draws to a close, I have another difficult choice to make. Only this time, I’m not just walking away from him, but his son too.

RELEASE DATE: October 15, 2020

Not my first rea dby the author, but since this is part of the KB World I wasn’t really sure what to expect to be honest.

Mack and Lena are part of the DRIVEN WORLD by K. Bromberg and I do love this author’s style and have read a lot of her books, after reading the blurb I knew I needed to read this! This was beautiful, emotional, real, sweet, angsty and FULL OF HEART! This is a second chance romance I want to re read over again. This story will have lots of curves, banter, sweet adorable babies, mystery that will have you turning the pages faster to see the truth. Absolutely loved both characters even the side of course but these two, were just so beautiful together.

R E V I E W ➠ Officially Over It by Lani Lynn Vale


(SWAT Generation 2.0 #10)


Going from a professional baseball player to a SWAT officer should’ve been seamless. Should have been.
But it wasn’t.
All it took was one single calendar shoot for word to spread that Nathan Cox was not only no longer playing professional baseball, but he was also the man behind saving the life of Reggie Morton, the City of Kilgore’s princess.
Reggie didn’t know that by agreeing to provide the expertise and the know-how for the Police Officer’s Ball that she would be required to actually attend the function.
What she also didn’t expect was needing to be saved—again—by the same man that had saved her life a year ago when she hosted her debut event.
This time in a not-nearly-as-spectacular way. The moment she falls into his arms like a modern-day Cinderella and takes him in in all his three-piece suited glory, she realizes that she’s been fighting the impossible.
Nathan Cox owns her. Body and soul. 

RELEASE DATE: October 13, 2020

Not my first read by the author. I have also read almost all in this series and generation #1 series as well so I am familiar with the style and the ongoing stories.

This was a little different but same at the same time because well I am used to different and out there form Lani it’s part of why I love reading her books! This one had kind of everything in it, second-chance, romance, sweet, painful, secrets…a mix of a lot of what you want. Nathan and Regina together were explosive in all the ways, when the sweet turns on IT’S SWEET, there is danger, secrets, so many secrets and painful past but them together really makes your heart happy. I would highly recommend this one, grabbed me from the beginning and kept me engaged the whole time. One of my favorites from the series!

R E V I E W ➠ Edge of Tomorrow by Freya Barker


(Arrow’s Edge MC #3)


Solitude and motor oil meets soul food and wariness
I’m a grease-stained enigma.
A watcher, a protector, an ex-con, and a mechanic.
My name is Brick.
I’m old enough to know good things come to those who wait, and hungry enough to go after what I want.
I am a proud independent.
A nurturer, a cook, a casualty, and a grandparent.
My name is Lisa.
I’m cautious enough to keep my distance, and too wise to let a chance at love pass me by.
We seem unmatched—in race, in history, in lifestyle—but when tragedy leaves a baby in our care and a target on our backs, we discover the strength of family.
Unified.

RELEASE DATE: September 21, 2020

Not my first read by the author, I actually she’s been one of my secret hidden I LOVE her books author. I honestly have not read any books by her that I did not like, something about her writing style just appeals to me.

So the hero and heroine here are in their late 40’s meaning they are also grandparents. So the hero is a rough MC who is 50 and has had his share of life, the one daughter he does have he lost contact with many years ago. Two years is how long this man has waited to make his move only to be send into hyper speed of romance when the time does come. The heroine, she is super sweet, loving and smart. Taking care of her childs children, raising them since they were little enough…she doesn’t have time for anything else. She likes her job being the cook at the MC and that’s that. WRONG! She didn’t know what she was missing until that kiss. Since this is a MC you know you will get action, mystery, suspense, danger, dark..but what’s beautiful about this si the love between the hero and heroine, it’s not over the top no, but by gosh it’s so sweet makes you melt. Something about a big strong MC man to melt your heart when he calls you SUGAR!

Absolutely recommend her books to anyone that loves older characters, old school love, romance, passion, dirty sex but in the best way possible and just plain REAL!

R E V I E W ➠ More Than Dare You by Shayla Black




I dared her to spend a hot, no-strings night with me. Now I’m determined to keep her forever
I’m Trace Weston, recently reformed womanizer. In the blink of an eye, I went from busy bachelor to full-time single dad. My life was already complicated before my sister-in-law asked me to show off my bedroom skills to her bestie, who’s wanting to experience real pleasure now that her one-and-only long-term relationship is over. Gorgeous Masey Garrett isn’t my “usual.” She’s shy, sassy, driven, and incredibly kind. Suddenly I’m falling fast…but she’s only mine for a night
What’s a former player to do? Change the rules
Now she’s under my roof night after night, letting me into her body and her life. Her heart? Not so much. She loves my newborn son. Me? I can’t tell. I’m pulling out all the stops to win her over, but she’s not taking me seriously. Other than passion, how can I reach her? Every attempt only pulls me deeper under her spell. 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 ➠ Can’t Fight It by Kaylee Ryan and Lacey Black




Colton
From the moment she showed up on my doorstep, I knew our lives would never be the same. I felt it deep in my soul that she was going to change us forever. I didn’t know how, but I knew she was important. I tried to maintain the distance between us, but it was too strong to fight.
With each passing day, I saw a future I never planned flash before my eyes—one with a fairytale ending. The only problem is that someone wanted to take that away from me, away from us. I just found her, and no way am I letting her go that easily. Hollis is family, my family, and I’ll do whatever it takes to protect her.
Hollis
Colton Callahan wasn’t what I expected. I was in desperate need of a fresh start, ready for something new, but all it took was one look at those intoxicating blue eyes for me to reevaluate everything. I tried to stay detached, but something about him just called to me.
It took no time at all for me to fall. Not only for the man I share a living space with, but also his son, Milo. The problem is my past is not too far behind, trailing behind me and slowly catching up. When it finally does, I have a choice to make—run away, leaving them behind, or stay and fight, potentially putting them in danger. Either way, I could lose it all. (

RELEASE DATE: July 30, 2020

Not my first read by the author and i have read all of Kaylee’s books and a lot of Lacey’s as well books including every book in this series. I was SOOOO excited about this one.Ii didn’t know how knocked odd my boots I’d be with this single dad *swoon swoon swoon* just so sweet and romantic…with a little bit of suspense. 

So in book 2 we find out that the hero here Colton is the father *Que the dramatic music* and since becoming a single dad he is doing everything right! In comes the knew tenant that was supposed to be a he and she is definitely a she, a gorgeous she. While the heroine is running away from something, is she also running TO something? I loved these two, this series is a *make you want to have a baby or a daddy * either way it’s so swoony and romantic.

R E V I E W ➠ Fight For Me by Corinne Michaels




I fell in love with Sydney Hastings when I was ten years old.
At sixteen, we whispered promises of forever.
When I was twenty-two I broke them all. I left her and promised never to return.
After my father’s death, I’m forced to go home to Sugarloaf for six months. She’ll be everywhere, no longer just in my memories and regrets. 
When we’re together, it’s as though time never stopped. She’s still the one I want, but I don’t deserve her. Instead of apologizing, I take that beautiful, broken woman in my arms. But after that, it’s her turn to leave me. 
Now I have to fight. For her. For us. For the life we both want …

RELEASE DATE: May 19, 2020

Her head is in my hands, and my heart is at her feet. She has no idea how badly I want to be the man she still sees.
-Declan


Not my first read by the author or last, I’ve been a huge fan for many years. I was WAITING FOR DECLAN gah *sigh* absolutely everything about it kept me captivated through out the whole book. What a start…and then I finished it and I am now asking myself what in the heck just happened? Wha…why? *breathing*

Well this will be really hard to keep spoiler free but I shall. If you’ve read book one you know this was going to be a second-chance and if you didn’t, now you know. It was so intense to a point I wanted to throw my kindle, then it just took a turn and BAM, I was balling my eyes out into my chips I was eating. It feels like I just got off a roller coaster ride and wasn’t sure that I ever even got on one. It was intense, heart-breakingly beautiful, angsty, sorrow and romantic in it’s own way! You kind of come out breathing little faster, but by gosh did it mend my heart! You don’t want to miss Declan and Sydney’s story…one for the books!!

R E V I E W ➠ Secret Plunge by Jasmin Miller


Romantically Ever After: A Limited Edition Collection of Contemporary Romance Novels


Sometimes, it takes being dumped by the wrong person so you can find the right one.⁣
Sometimes, the job you hate, but pays the bills, kicks you to the curb.⁣
And sometimes, being divorced and jobless at twenty-four leads to questionable choices on New Year’s Eve that have the potential to turn into something wonderful . . . once you weather life’s bumps to get there. Of course. ⁣
Like finding out your drop-dead-gorgeous one-night stand turned baby daddy is Ryan Monroe, swimming gold medalist who came out of retirement for one more Olympic Games. ⁣
And that your dad is his new coach. ⁣
Or that Ryan will never overlap his personal life with his work life again. ⁣
That’s when the secrets . . . the omissions begin. Because sometimes, that’s how you protect fledgling relationships and those you love. Isn’t it?⁣

RELEASE DATE: May 12, 2020

Not my first read by the author, I also have read the full Book #1 in a new series, this one belongs to a group of author’s analogy. It was shorter but long enough to keep you happy.

This was a very sweet and sexy read. involves a surprise pregnancy, age gap, sports romance. The heroine is much younger to the hero who shared one amazing night, only for Harper to leave the next morning. now that they both realize what is going to happen, not only that but also the fact that they live on opposite sides of the country. I think if I had to pick one thing that kind of threw me off a little is, how it kind of turned over night (the feelings for one another) and i mean that because there wasn’t much progression towards that for me, they felt more just friends platonic to me for a very long time and then like the switch was turned on. The hero was sweet, funny, sexy. outgoing…just a good guy all around. the heroine was a little quirky, funny, sweet and vulnerable. Two different lives that may be connected to one another after all. It was light, exciting and sweet story with a little hint of mystery!

R E V I E W ➠ Working For It by BJ Harvey


(Cook Brothers #5)


It started one night in Vegas over a naughty cocktail and dirty banter. Eight months of bedded bliss later, Gilly Nelson says the two words Ezra Baker never saw coming:
“I’m pregnant.”
Twice-divorced Ezra has always acted first, thought it through later. Except in Gilly he finds an equal; a strong-willed, independent woman who doesn’t need his money or kind heart to get ahead. She just wants him.
Career-focused Gilly never imagined she’d be thirty-five, single and pregnant. Except when Ezra suggests they date rather than just mate, she finds herself wondering whether the man she’s been looking for has been in her bed all along.
If they can survive raging hormones, house renovations, and the realities of childbirth, surely creating a family will be a walk in the park…right?
***
Working For It is a full-length house flipping romantic comedy that can be read as a complete standalone and is the fifth and final book in the Cook Brothers series. Working For It is Ezra Baker’s story.

RELEASE DATE: May 6, 2020

Not my first read by the author & I have read all the books in this series so I am familiar with the crew and writing style of course. I am a forever fan of BJ…she really writes sweet, sexy and funny books! This one was romantic on a whole new level!

Ezra has got to be one of my favorites in this series, I knew we’d get something else form him from the previous books but my gosh did I fall in love with him…actually with Gilli as well…not only is she strong, independent and beautiful but has the biggest heart and isn’t afraid to show her emotions. Ez is a sweetheart but in a alpha sexy way, I really REALLY LOVED HIM! This has a mixture of fun, surprise, sexy and let’s not forget this whole series has a lot of rom-com and this did not disappoint it. You get to watch two people navigate something that could have gone differently but they both chose the right path for themselves…now the question is can they overcome everything being thrown in at once?!

R E V I E W ➠ Wild For You by Kendall Ryan



GOODREADS AMAZON AUTHOR WEBSITE

He’s growly. Grumpy. Stubborn.
And now, my new roommate.
Walking away from my disastrous last relationship was an easy decision, but moving in with a friend-of-a-friend hockey star who’s rarely home? Not quite as simple, because Grant makes me feel all kinds of things I’m not prepared for.
Protected. Desired. Unsteady.
She’s beautiful. Smart. Tempting.
And a little fragile.
I’ve never been anyone’s knight in shining armor, but when Ana needed a place to stay, it was easy to offer her a room with me.
Not so simple, though, is keeping my hands—or my mouth—to myself. And the night she crawls into my bed and shares her body with me? Heaven.
But she’s not looking for a relationship, and to my surprise, I find myself pissed off by that idea.
They say my heart is broken, that I’ll never settle down. I used to think that was true. Now, though? Hell, your guess is as good as mine.
First, she took my bed.
Then she took my heart.
Then she took my everything.

RELEASE DATE: April 20, 2020

Not my first read by the author & I also have read every book in the series!

I love this series, and have really liked every book, maybe one where it wasn’t my style but I was so super excited to read Grant’s story. Like more excited then the rest. And so it is with heavy heart that I have to say that, I sadly did not like it. The plot was weak, the heroine was weak a ‘push-over’ type weak, granted it called for the situation(s) but it was overly. I think it was just that that bothered me, Ana the heroine. Grant was understandable, protective and grumpy but sexy. The plot line in the beginning was really fast for the situation that occurred, it “moved” on too quick for me. I understand Ana’s situation but just wasn’t executed well, for my taste.
The story line only gets worse for me. There are so many missing pieces for me, i have so many questions and just confusion all around. I do not like Ana’s actions at all, not only weak but poorly and so confusion and indecisive. I can’t really say it but want to but i don’t do spoiler alerts so i wont but gosh I just want to yell at her, WHAT IS WRONG WITH YOU aside from the beginning of the story reason!!! I mean this has a trigger: abuse but it was poorly constructed to me. And sadly I have to say that, even through the end I did not end up ever liking Ana, and Grant was, just seemed the push-over himself. Like I said I don’t want to spoil anything but boy, am I disappointed at this book. There is one more in the series, and we shall see.
