BREAKING NEWS: The Bad Boy of Baseball, Maddox Paige, is totally and utterly whipped. Okay, that might not be the headlines in the newspaper this morning, but it’s the reality of my current situation. It all started a month ago when I received a call from my best friend, Kinsley. She got a new job in Chicago and needed a place to stay. I’ve known the girl since I was five, what harm would it be to have her stay at my place for a while? Ha! Total disaster. Now instead of going out every night with my teammates, I’m couch surfing and sketching endless photos of my best friend . . . but that’s the least of my concerns. The disaster, you ask? I’m rapidly falling head over cleats in love with my best friend, my roommate, and my number one fan. And she has no idea . . .
RELEASE DATE: June 11, 2020
Not my first read by the author and I have read most of her books!! I was excited about this one because a mix of Meghan’s writing and rom-com…such a huge sucker for good rom-com’s and this one took the cake for sure!!
Maddox Paige is not what I expected, yes he looks like the bad boy, sleeping with a new girl every night type of man who has it all but he has the BIGGEST heart and when he is sweet, boy will your tooth hurt! I loved LOVED Maddox with Kinsley *sigh* and *swoon* their friendship is beautiful. Kinsley is the type of woman that will bat for you no matter what, she is loyal to the core and that’s why there wasn’t a single thing I did not like about her, all her actions are pure. Maddox’s past is heartbreaking, but Kindley really is there for him in all the ways possible. When their lines are blurred, things heat up and that slow burn will burn very bright! Like I said one of my favorite rom-com’s and hero’s!

Dating is hard. Dating in a small town? Impossible. Leave it to my little brother to come back home announcing he knocked up his fiancée and the wedding has been moved…to next month. When he tries to set me up with one of his football buddies, I tell him I’ll be bringing my own plus-one. Only problem? I’m hopelessly single. Enter Sullivan Scott, AKA my hero. We strike a deal: he’ll pretend to be my boyfriend, and I’ll use my mechanic skills to help him fix his boat. That’s it. No funny business, and definitely no feelings involved. Sully’s quiet and reserved, and I’ve been told I’m too much to handle on a good day. We’re opposites, and neither of us is looking for anything serious. I’m certain we can keep this strictly platonic…
RELEASE DATE: June 4, 2020
Not my first read by the author and I have pretty much read every book of hers including all the ones in this series. And let’s just say I’ve been waiting for Sullivan’s story so hard! Best meet ever haha already loved this from the get go. Teagan has a talent for ROM-COM’s that have enough of everything else including romance that you will love it from the first chapter!
These two are opposite yet very alike. The heroine is a tom-boy that isn’t looking for a relationship and the hero is a easy-going smooth sexy man that isn’t looking for anything either. They were brought together by an incident and here they are living the lie that keeps getting bigger and bigger. Only when the lie get’s blurred for the both of them, they think they can keep it in check…but things never work out how you want them too.
I really loved these two together. The hero kind of fit so well with the heroine and her quirky ways. And I will not get yout oo excited about the sexy scenes because OH. MY. GOD. yes!! Another fantastic read!

Not my first read by the author & I have read every single book she wrote! I was excited to see something something from Krista on a book-let like this. The first few pages alone were SWEET & exciting!
This was a shorter but oh so sweeter read! I wasn’t sure what to expect but did see it coming, just not the way it played out. Here we have a heroine that runs into some bad luck….most her life, all because of a curse. And a hero that promised he’d never let himself feel again. But there is a huge twist, I can’t say because well spoiler free and all but these two may have a lot more in common than they think. It’s bitter sweet for the hero once he finds out and everything then will seem small co pared to the bigger picture.

Lies. Deceit. Espionage. And that’s just the tip of the iceberg here in DC. My boyfriend is fake engaged, I’m pretty sure someone out there is trying to kill me, and now a sexy-as-sin attorney from the Justice Department is investigating me and I have zero clue as to why. Torn between duty and love, I’m not just floundering in my role as VP, I’m drowning. When the pieces of the president’s plan come to light, I know I have to stop him. Permanently this time. How I’ll get out of this alive, I have no idea, but at least I still have my favorite secret service agent, Trey Benson, by my side—for now. I’ll do whatever it takes to remove Kyle from office, even if it means sacrificing everything I love. Again.
Power Switch is the third book in the five-book Power Play series and is a continuation of Randi and Trey’s epic love story. The books in this series cannot be read as standalones. All five books follow one main couple’s relationship as it grows through a five-year time period. It’s suspenseful, steamy, and oh so unputdownable. If you’re a fan of Tiffany Snow, Meghan March, and Skye Warren, then this series is for YOU!
RELEASE DATE: April 20, 2020
Not my first read by the author, she is one of my favorites and I also have read Book 1 & 2 out of the 5 series books!
You will get a strong doze of Jessica in this one and I pray that she “accidentally” gets killed off! Anyways, thus far (and since this is book 3 and I hope no one is reading in the middle of a full length 5 book series) we all know that the heroine Randi is the VP of the USA with a President who is a big DICK! Trey the hero is cornered by his parents specifically his mother to do something that he wouldn’t normally agree to but to keep Randi safe he had no choice. His relationship with Jessica who in the beginning really seemed like a ‘woman power’ type of person until Trey’s mother got her claws in her, is a rather preternatural relationship! I didn’t like the “triangle” aspect of it in the beginning, it turned me off only because that is my taste or NOT my taste to be exact. I put a lot of emotion and feeling into reading, and it’s not so much as put but that’s how I read, will a full heart and concentration to the story and characters. Blessing & a Curse!
That also said, it really in this one you can see how hard it really is to keep a relationship when you’re the VP and the other is sworn and paid to protect you. The hurdles they go through are real and dangerous, sweet, romantic, fast, mysterious…it has it all. It’s deep political romance but with lot’s of twists and turns. Randi is complex character that Trey keeps at bay, they really are perfectly perfect together. Aside from the beginning where I wanted Jessica killed off, I really enjoyed the remainder. Now let’s talk about the ending: everything from 65% and on was intense, from the lies, secrets, danger constant danger, Randi holds her ground. Like I said these two are perfect for one another and the ending had me SHOOCKED!!!!!! Just shoocked!

He’ll do whatever it takes to steal her heart. Brea has always been a dutiful daughter and a good girl…until she meets the dangerous warrior. He’s everything she shouldn’t want, especially after her best friend introduces her to his fellow operative as his girlfriend—to protect her from Pierce.

Not my first read by the author and she actually was one of my firsts many years ago. I have always loved her books and writing style. I am always honest and even if that means a favorite author of mine wrote something I did not enjoy reading. I think I was more frustrated/annoyed during this book than anything. I don’t even know where to start on this, so I think I will start with what I did not find attractive to read:
The heroine is younger 22 and innocent. She is a preachers daughter and has family and friends around. I honestly can’t say that I liked her, maybe part of the story but definitely over-all, I did not like her. Immature, indecisive, a push over, christian which is fine but it was A LOT out there, again not that I mind or care to each it’s own but it was a lot, most the time I wanted to shake her to wake up, she reminds me of a little mouse that gets scared and does what other’s say and can’t make up her mind. I couldn’t get into it with her at all.
Before the Hero I’d like to talk about the most ANNOYING and PIT of this book character. Cutter, he is the heroine’s best friend and has been since they were little. At the beginning it was kind of okay he was playing the big brother and protective but then it became repetitive over and over again him protecting her from the hero, him stating he is her boyfriend. I won’t lie but I feel like he was more with the heroine than the hero. Absolutely after the first 3 times of repetitive, no I do not like Cutter.
Now the hero, there actually isn’t much wrong with him aside from the fact that he is a man what knows what he wants and goes after it. But here is the catch: he is going after someone that supposedly belongs to one of his co workers, Cutter. So that of course rubbed me wrong the whole time, it was sweet until I realized that 80% into the book and he still has yet to find out that Cutter is not the heroine’s boyfriend. So this whole time while he and the heroine show up in the book, to me it feels like cheating. And who’s fault is that? the push-over’s heroine of course. So the hero was a 50/50 .
All in all I honestly can’t say that I was able to fully get into it aside from not understanding that a hero and heroine can fall in love with the hero truly has no idea she didn’t belong to another man but to him he though she did yet he still fell in love with her. It was just a mess for me and I will not be reading the conclusion, the way it ended and the EXCERPT you get at the end, I don’t think I can endure her indecisiveness any more. Sad to say because I honestly have never met a book by Shayla I didn’t like. This was not for me, not to say someone isn’t going to love it. To each it’s own it’s why we review, I am just simply pointing out my opinions. That said, I will be reading more by the author just not finishing this one.
The book does contain exciting scenes, steamy one as well, angsty and the whole words were amazing, because Shayla really knows how to write, so aside from my dislikes and no connection, I might have enjoyed it a little more had the heroine not been the way she is in here. Not my flavor or style.

Having watched his brothers meet their match, Cohen Cook is feeling something he never anticipated—envy. With a demanding job, and helping his brothers with their biggest flip project yet, he doesn’t have time to sleep with, let alone date, anyone. Skye Rossi is a free spirit. She’s a take-her-as-you-see-her woman who works hard and plays hard, but the person she wants to play with friend-zoned her the minute they met. When sparks fly between Cohen and Skye, the only way forward is to propose a mutually beneficial arrangement that no one knows about. Besides, what’s the harm in a few orgasms between best friends?
RELEASE DATE: January 30, 2020
Not my first read by author & I have read all the ones in the COOK BROTHER’S SERIES and loved every single one!! Super excited when I got the chance to early read this beauty!!
This one was a SWEET and FEISTY one because the hero is the ever so sexy Cohen EMT & his new partner the heroine the sister of two of the firefighters, Skye Rossi. She is feisty, outgoing, smart, sexy and down to earth, not to mention beyond gorgeous! Both of them are here to do one thing….a job, a very important job. But when you put two people together in a small proximity for a period of time, what can go wrong? Well, an agreement that a normal person may not have thought of but these two strictly have it handled, of course. “of course”
As light-hearted this was and fun, it was still in depth and you get to see sides of two souls that hurt for different reasons but find solace in one another, even for a short time being. Something about these two drew me closer to the series, maybe even thought me a lesson or two. And to end it with I CAN’T WAIT NOW FOR EZRA AND GILLY’S STORY, this should be an amazing story too!!

“hush. look in love.”
Not my first read by the author and this author to me always writes BEAUTIFUL books, very sweet and perfect like. I also jumped the gun, as in this is my first book in the series which also happens to have been the end of a series. I won’t like but I liked this because I also got a little glimpse of the previous ones which are on my top tbr because I would love to get their story too.
Audrey Tate was very lovable to me, I could relate to her and feel every single emotion. After the tragic incident, I wasn’t sure how she would go on. She gets herself into a little but of a triangle because her best friend Clarke who needs to escape his mother’s meddling ways, so a little white lie won’t hurt anyone….right? What happens after is a lot of SOMETHING REAL, little by little the fine line starts to blur but after all she has been through and having known Clarke for all her life…can they step over onto the other side without losing everything they already have?
I received a paperback ARC and it felt great haha for some reason they always are a little more different to me. I was happy to have been able to read this and like I said I really want to read the previous 2 books to get their story as well, the ladies all sounds equally amazing!

When I joined Seattle’s NHL expansion team, I thought it was the start of something great. But nothing ever goes the way you expect. Take my introduction to my new neighbor. She came rolling in on the hot mess express at midnight, making a racket while she tried to get into my team captain’s apartment. Did I mention that he’s married to a woman who definitely was not her?
Imagine my surprise when I end up with an injury that has me out of the game for weeks, and she’s the one to offer to help me. I should probably add that she’s not the captain’s mistress. She’s his sexy, pastel-haired younger sister.
So we come up with an arrangement: she rehabs me so that I can get back on the ice sooner, and she can add a professional athlete that isn’t her brother to her client list. Seems simple enough. As long as I can keep my hands to myself and my hormones in check.

“His man stick is pretty much broken. I’m not getting a ride out of this, if that’s what you’re thinking.”
Not my first read by this author and have read many many of Helena’s books. This is the most perfect ENEMY-TO-LOVERS romance I have read in a while! Everything about this from the words to characters…L O V E D!!
Stevie is a woman living in a shadow, meaning her older brother who is the NFL star has always out shinned her and when he wanted the attention, Stevie did everything to be out of it. Living a life to prove to herself that she can make it on her own and not the help of her famous brother (who btw has his own book in Book #1 a lie for a lie) that said, I was excited and happy to see that Stevie was getting her own story.
The hero is Bishop who is not only a Hockey player in the same team as Stevie’s brother but neither of them know of one another. When they meet is a night that Stevie will never forget although she’d love to and Bishop was throwing out assumptions left and right. In his boxers….ONLY his boxers. That’s how it continues….only Stevie has a few tricks up her sleeve too.
When they both realize how one another is, things change and some of the clearing comes out. What happens after I DON’T WANT TO SPOIL so, I will say that there is a lot of laugh out loud moments, lots of hate to, mystery, sweetness, and the sweet sweet romance, not to mention the sexy scenes WOW on those. Everything came together so well and I couldn’t get enough!

Skye Walking down the aisle toward my arch enemy wasn’t exactly what I was picturing when I planned out my dream wedding as a little kid. However, as I take in his chiseled jaw and sexy smirk, I remember why I agreed to this sham of a marriage. It’s because I’m a glutton for punishment and love a good underdog story, and the more I get to know Liam, the more I can see that he’s exactly that. The underdog. I just hope I’m not wrong about him.
Liam Marriage is a load of crap and my dad knows it, which is why he insisted I find a wife if I ever wanted to touch my inheritance. Little does he know, I don’t have a problem getting my hands dirty in order to get what I want. And if I have to use my little brother’s nanny to prove it, I will. Besides, the girl drives me insane. It’s not like we have anything in common other than our mutual disdain for each other. This’ll be a walk in the park. I hope.

Not my first read by the author and the previous one’s I have read I have liked very much so, this one was right up my FAV alley because I love a good enemy-to-lovers romance!!
Sky is a younger woman who is a nanny to an adorable little man, who’s father is a very wealthy and well known man. When one day they get home and a unknown vehicle is parked in the driveway, Skye hopes it’s not the asshole-playboy older brother Liam. Sadly, it was him. Things only heat up between them from then on.
When Skye loses her mind and agree’s to a FAKE MARRIAGE to Liam, she has no idea that his intentions are anything but good. Liam, always being a man who is misunderstood and not listened to and trapped under his father, he will do anything to be free of it all. Even if it means stepping over the “nanny” and his little brother. After all, all his life his father has pegged him for a loser and low life.
But, when his little lie turns into the biggest one yet…will he lose it all?
This story is fantastic because the heroine is strong, firm, smart-mouthed and gorgeous, she is still vulnerable enough to want to be needed. Liam may be a little shit and mean at times, deep down he has his reasons and doesn’t know any better because he’s been like that…always. You get bickering, sexy moments, sweet uber SWOON moments and heartfelt scenes. Would highly recommend this one!

Stuck with a dangerously hot man nearly around the clock is tonrture in itself.
Not my first read by author and I am very honored to have received this ARC very early!! I can’t wait to see more in this series because after this one I AM NOW HOOKED!! Also little about the author from how I perceive her: her books are different, in a REAL sense, so it’s not your typical romance and it’s always real to a point you forget your reading. So, this is a political-real-life-romance, enemy-to-lovers, angsty, suspenseful, mysterious, action packed, funny and sweet at times also. Slow burn for sure, but with some teasing! When hero and heroine meet it’s under not so good circumstances. What’s worse is that Randi was shocked by the man’s size and beautiful eyes, until the harsh words that come out of his mouth. How do you change someone perception of yourself when it’s a lie to yourself too.
Trey Benson is part of Randi’s security detail, and the man is a grumpy one. Sexy, but grumpy! Considering he got himself and his team in the situation they are in in the first place. I think it’s funny that he already made up him mind about Randi, but he has NO IDEA!! Trey and Randi are more intertwined than they know, small world if you will. Beware and that’s saying it light of K Y L E! Oh my gosh, did I want to stab him then suffocate him with his own pillow a few times! *grrrr* This is a VERY REAL LIKE political life, and boy did the author do some good research which ever way!!
Two people whoa re polar opposite, lies, wrongs, deception and real life. It’s when Trey realizes a little who Randi really is, every day it’s something new and he can’t believe his eyes because, not a minute ago she was this polished, clean beautiful and shark woman in a world of powerful men. This is a DON’T JUDGE A BOOK BY IT’S COVER through and through. I really really flipping fell in love with Randi, her past, her upbringings, her push through life…it’s admirable and not believable at times but in here you will understand that, really not everyone is as they seem. But throughout all this, she stays true to HERSELF even if the rest of the world sees her as this perfect Political Barbie!
While these two try and figure out WHO THEY ARE to themselves, while living this life of polar opposite yet so very much alike…it’s a on the edge of the seat, glued to your book type of story. As much as the political world is arrogant, there is a way to navigate, the question is will Randi trust her new found friend Trey to help her with that, and will Randi put himself back out there for someone he essentially had pegged already?!
Prepare for that ending & thereafter…seriously, a fight to the end?
