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…

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!

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.

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.

This lady just might just get through that tough layer he has built around himself. Can the sexual chemistry they feel be just that, or could it be more? Is one year long enough for these two people to forget their pasts and grab onto a chance of love or will they lose it forever.
RELEASE DATE: August 16, 2020
NEW to me author and books. And this really was a pleasant surprise, I wasn’t sure what to expect from this from the blurb it could really go anywhere and this took me by surprise.
Autumn and Brett are unique characters. The heroine has a disability and the hero is not only mindful but also a good person at heart. He treats her with respect and like nothing is in the way, which in the heroine’s case she really is amazing and NOTHING is in her way. It was a little bit different story line and different for me but all in all smooth and very well put together!

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!

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!

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!

Not my first read by the author, and not my last. I have fallen in love with this series from book one, and I have been waiting for the youngest brother’s story and it did not disappoint! HIGHLY HIGHLY RECOMMEND this series & this book!!
WOW. I was not expecting that, I mean Brig is the youngest brother of them and the most ‘I WANT TO FIND LOVE’ silly, sweet, big heart and still very handsome and sexy in his own way. Ruth is, she surprised me each time, my heart fell for her at every corner fallen and by gosh, can you live through a character? Because i sure as heck did with Ruth. She’s had a secret for a long time, the secret being only to Brig who is a clueless idiot. Talk about a town effort. Yes, you will get lots of laughs here but also sweet moments that will keep you wanting to read more and need more. I was very captivated by this one, I even cried my eyes out. I really wish there is it will be more because I don’t want it to end please. And I am saying this because of the way this book ended, I’m kind of hanging there….

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!

Not my first read by the author and I have read all her books and am familiar with her writing style which I love. So this was a very ‘pull you in’ blurb and I was super excited to dive into this.
I don’t know where to start because I have a 50/50 feeling about this. I love Tia’s books I do but this one was too smooth and easy flow, I felt like there could have been a little more action and or fire. It’s was almost TOO SWEET, not that there is anything wrong with it, but it was a little slow for me at times because of it. That said I really don’t want anyone to take this negative, the writing and characters were as always fantastic, I just wasn’t fully feeling this book. Definitely a MODERN DAY ROMEO & JULIET story!

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.
