Friendships and family abound during a week of love, laughter, and happily ever afters. Catch up with your favorite characters and enjoy Bones and Sarah’s wedding while falling in love with the newest Whiskey-world couple, Penny Wilson and Scott Beckley in this Whiskey series novella.
When everything you want is right in front of you, but it’s still out of reach…
Penny Wilson has a successful business, more friends than a girl could ask for, and a boyfriend she’s madly and passionately in love with. Scott Beckley is honest, loyal, hands down the best lover on the planet, and absolutely gaga over his nieces and nephews. Scott’s a keeper…as long as Penny doesn’t ever want to hear those three magical words that would take their relationship to the next level. Scott escaped abusive parents at seventeen and was forced to find his way alone in the world. Even though it’s been more than a decade and he’s reunited with his estranged sisters and built a good life in Peaceful Harbor, Maryland, he’s still tortured by his past. Penny knows he loves her with everything he has, but for a girl who wants a family and a guy who is afraid of having one, love might not be enough.

“I love you, Penny. You’re my soul mate, my best friends, my eye of the fucking storm,”

-Scott

Not my first read, I couldn’t even tell you how many of the author books I’ve read! That said you bet I have read all the books in the series so I was SOOO ready for this! It was the sweetest read!

This may have been shorter but filled with so much emotion! I was hanging on to every page, it was sweet, romantic, swoony with full of angst. Penny & Scott are a beautiful couple, they both harvest some pain from the past but the secrets and chip on Scott’s shoulder about certain outlooks in life…during their friend’s wedding, things get a little out of control and Penny is trying to get herself around the idea of being single. That is all I am saying, this was a rather very enjoyable read and just exactly what was needed! Beautiful addition to the Series!

R E V I E W ➠ Tease Me by J. Kenner



GOODREADS AMAZON AUTHOR WEBSITE

Entertainment reporter Jamie Archer knew it would be hard when her husband, Stark Security Chief Ryan Hunter, was called away for a long-term project in London. The distance is difficult to endure, but Jamie trusts the deep and passionate love that has always burned between them. At least until a mysterious woman from Ryan’s past shows up at his doorstep, her very presence threatening to destroy everything that Jamie holds dear.
Ryan never expected to see Felicia Randall again, a woman with whom he shared a dark past and a dangerous secret. The first and only woman he ever truly failed.
Desperate and on the run, Felicia’s come to plead for his help. But while Ryan knows that helping her is the only way to heal old wounds, he also knows that the mission will not only endanger the life of the woman he holds most dear, but will brutally test the deep trust that binds Jamie and Ryan together.

RELEASE DATE: March 10, 2020

“Mostly, I love you, Jamie Archer.”
“Jasmie Archer Hunter,” I correct.
“And thank God for that,” he says.

He pulls me close and kisses me, sweet and tender, as if sealing the vow between s all over again.

-Jamie

Not my first read by the author and she is one of my firs reads along with being a top favorite author. That said, yes I have read all of the Stark books from one to lasts. This is Ryan and Jamie story, well another one hehe. And with that I will say this can not be read as a standalone since this couple is already established. It’s a fun and exciting story about a part of their life. Which by the way I love about all this, we get glimpses of their lives after the fact.

It jumps right in of course. When a past of Ryan’s re-appears it really does shake everything up. After a spontaneous trip that Jamie takes, turns into a un-forgetting adventure filled with sizzling moments, mystery, danger, past and trust. Really intense and after my Bestie Amy talked me down with me threatening to throw things at people at the gym if it was what I though it was, I really really enjoyed it.

“You’re everything I didn’t expect to find.”

-Infatuation

Not my first read by author, she is on my top 5 favorite author’s! And yes I have read every single of her books and re-read them also. So when I received this Novella, I jumped right on it!! I needed JUSTIN like air!! I will have to say that reading the Underground King’s Series is probably a best idea before this. Justin is in Book #1 Assumption and I fell in love with him there. So keep that in mind also that this is a Novella.

Aubrey and Justin are neighbors, one day Aubrey’s car door would not shut and gives Justin finally an “in” which he takes gladly. He has had an eye on his new beautiful and sexy neighbor for a while now. AANNDDD I can’t say too much because if you’re reading at least Book #1 you’ll get more and then you’ll get the full in this Novella. I will say that it’s beautiful, just the closure I wanted from Justin’s story!! I have read this and already re-read it, this entire series is amazing so I would highly recommend that too!!

A MUST READ!

R E V I E W ➠ Biker Babe by Audrey Carlan



GOODREADS AMAZON AUTHOR WEBSITE

Princess. That’s what the club calls me. I’m not frilly, into pink, or expect a man to woo me with chocolates and flowers. I don’t need candlelit dinners and long walks on the beach.
I’m not the girl you take home to your parents. I like wild, fun, and good times. I’m the kind of girl you put on the back of your bike and ride through the night…in more ways than one.
I like the wind in my hair and the open road before me. I was born a biker princess and I’ll be one until the day I die. The man in my life can try to tame me, but he’ll have one hell of a fight on his hands. Though if he wins, he’ll get the ultimate prize…all of me. Devoted. His old lady through thick and thin.
So when I opened my store, aptly named Biker Babe, I didn’t expect to have the biggest, sexiest, most jaw-dropping man walk into my shop and set my world on fire. I wanted him instantly. Only problem, my father is the president of the Hero’s Pride MC, and Taggart “Rex” Crawford is his new Vice President.
Our Pride likes to live wild and ride free but everyone knows the President’s daughter is off limits.

*The Biker Beauties are a collection of interconnected standalone novellas. They can be read out of order if desired. They are high in heat, but don’t forget the sweet.

RELEASE DATE: November 11, 2019

“No, sweetheart. I think you’re going to be a challenge. A challenge I’m entirely ready for.”

-Rex

Not my first read by author and boy was I excited for this to come out. One set back for me was: I NEEDED MORE! This totally would have made an amazing FULL-LENGHT book! That said, this is a Novella.

This is a full on biker romance! With all the badass, sexy, rough and dangerous you can want! Shay is the BIKER PRINCESS meaning she not only belong to them but is the President’s Daughter. Meaning. OFF-LIMITS. Just when she thinks it would never happen for her then REX shows up at her store and everything changes. Their love is rough yes, but so beautiful and full of life. Let’s not forget the spice and steamy, boy it is steamy! But in the Biker World there are rules and Rex will have to commit to acts, to prove his love and her honor.

Gah, seriously wish this was a full on length, I loved Rex and Shay. Their love so pure and real…since this is a novella I read it in one sitting and looking forward to Biker Beloved Shane’s story!!

R E V I E W ➠ Her Dirty Secret by Melanie A. Smith


(The Safeguarded Heart Series Book #4)

GOODREADS AMAZON AUTHOR WEBSITE

Emily Hoyt is often referred to as a “free spirit,” but she knows that’s just a nice way to say “flake.” Thick-skinned and stubborn, she doesn’t let it bother her — she simply does what makes her happy. It’s a hard thing to pull off living in the shadow of her perfect big brother, who does everything right. So when big brother Bryce unexpectedly announces he’s married his perfect match, Emily once again feels the pressure to be more than the meandering musician she is.
At exactly the moment she needs it, an opportunity presents itself in an unforeseen way. Alessandro Giordano is the lying, selfish bastard who once hurt her brother’s now-wife. Emily had him pegged as bad news. But when they meet at the engagement-turned-wedding celebration, they’re both looking to escape, and the instant chemistry they have pushes them together.
Is their attraction just a diversion, or could it really be more? Is Alessandro truly capable of the selflessness committing to one woman requires? And will that really be the deal-breaker for Emily, or is it the idea of being tied down that will get in her way? The pursuit of love can devastate us, or it can liberate us — if only we can get out of our own way.
Note: This is a novella and the fourth book in a steamy contemporary romance series. This book includes mature content, and as such is not recommended for readers under 18 years of age, or those who might be offended by such material.

“You have a fire in you,”

-Alessandro

Officially my first read by the author but I do have the previous books also, which I am getting to. So, yes I am jumping ahead but I think it’ll be fine. Also, this author has been a long time follower of all my everything’s and I want to thank her for always being there and this ARC!!

This was rather short obviously being a Novella so one sitting read and it was really steamy. Started off with Emily feeling like things in life may not happen to her…the relationship and marriage type. When she attends her brother’s engagement party she runs into the infamous Alessandro and things kind of just GO from there on. From thinking of him of all the things she has heard and see her soon to be sister in law go through, she had him pegged one way and to a delightful surprise he was nothing like.

When Alessandro takes her home and doesn’t follow what she is offering a IN THE MOMENT happens where she ends up going to Italy with him on a whim. Then the ADVENTURE begins! It’s a short but sexy story and for it being my first read, it was very enjoyable. Like I said at the beginning I do have the whole series to catch up on too!!

R E V I E W ➠ It Started With A Kiss by Jenika Snow



GOODREADS – AMAZON – AUTHOR WEBSITE

Ari
It was supposed to be a fun, easygoing bachelorette party. But it turned out to be so much more. They dared me to kiss the next guy to buy me a drink. And I agreed. It was just a kiss, right?
And then it happened… I saw Grey and felt something instant. I tried to back out of that kiss even though I wanted it desperately.
But he didn’t let me stop it. He kissed me until my toes curled and my heart raced. He kissed me until I knew I wanted more.
So when I left him standing there staring at me, I knew it was all kinds of wrong to leave. 
Grey
It started with a dare.
It ended with a kiss.
And for weeks after she walked out of my life, I searched for her, doing anything and everything in my power to find a morsel of information about the first woman to make my heart stop and my future flash before my eyes.
And when I finally found her, I was going to show Ari that I’d known she was mine from the very beginning. And that I wasn’t letting her go a second time. 

Release Date: August 14, 2019


“You’re the first woman who’s ever made me feel alive, who’s ever made me want to actually think about the future.”

-Grey

Not my first read by author, and I want to address that right after the Blurb got me THAT. COVER. my god, that smirk *sigh* okay, I’m okay now!!

This right away starts off AMAZING! I am already loving the librarian type ARI and the eavesdropping LITTLE BANDIT Grey!! I love how they met, love how both of them are two strangers that share the same spark and feeling for one another, or at least the BOOM they feel for one another!! It was very sweet and uber-sexy because Grey has a deep manly voice and looks like a tall dark and handsome drink!!

It’s a consuming and craving type of chase, passion and love. 162 pages of fast and somewhat irrational but totally understanding type of love. The type you try and capture when it’s still zipping around you. I really wish there was more of Grey and Ari,I loved them together, their chemistry and all.

Grey is a responsible, sexy and smart man, worked him way of building him empire so to say and has a straight head on his shoulder, that is until he kisses Ari because that consumption was magical!! Ari is the responsible and innocent Librarian, who’s friends dared to kiss the first guy that buys her a drink one night out, only turned out to be more beautiful than anything. I can’t say I had dislikes, it’s more about the hero and heroine which I don’t mind, it is a shorter one after-all. Fun, sexy and consuming!!

A MUST READ!

R E V I E W ➠ The Celtic Cowboy by Jessica Marin


Adeline Murphy
In Texas, two things are gospel – football and rodeos. Growing up as the daughter of a football legend made me practically royalty, but it’s not a crown I’m interested in. Football life isn’t for me, no matter how hard my family pressures me with their motto of “If you can’t be them, marry them.” Living in the shadow of my football star brothers was exhausting and I eventually became invisible all together. I bide my time working at my family’s car dealership until I gather up the nerve to tell them that I’m living life on my own terms. I have my own dreams and they don’t include marrying a football player or a cowboy. 
My resolve was strong, until a cocky Celtic cowboy sauntered into my life. Ryan Kearney might not wear a football jersey, but wearing a cowboy hat and chaps was just as lethal. Devilish good looks with a mouth that could even charm the panties off a nun, I knew I was in trouble when he set his sights on me.

Ryan Kearney
As an up and coming bull rider, I’ve learned that rodeo life is grueling, but it’s the life I’ve chosen. The pounding of your heart and the thunder of applause that rings in your ears when that buzzer calls out the end of the eight seconds is a sound like no other. My dream to be a professional bull rider in the American Pro Rodeo Circuit is finally becoming a reality when my brother and I leave Ireland to compete for our shot at Nationals in Las Vegas. If I want the title of the best bull rider in the world, being mediocre isn’t enough. To be the best, you have to beat the best, which requires me living, breathing and sleeping rodeos. Being in a committed relationship isn’t even on my radar. So I do casual relationships and it seems my notoriety as the Playboy Cowboy preceded me to America. What can I say? The ladies love cowboys and I love the ladies.
Charming them into bed is my second favorite pastime, so when the warm brown eyes of Adeline Murphy lock on mine and burn with yearning, I know I have her right where I want her. Except I don’t. The sexy spitfire seems immune to my charm and makes me work hard for her attention. 

The chase has become a game – one that I’m determined to win and to make her mine. I wasn’t looking for forever, but I can’t imagine my life without her. 


Release Date: June 26, 2019


Ryan: I can’t wait to see your gorgeous face in the stands today. Dinner with your family after?
Me: Hell No! Straight to the hotel for congratulatory sex on your huge victory.
Ryan: My kind of woman.


⇨ R E V I E W ⇦

Not my first read by author, I have officially read every single book so far!

Ryan Kearney is the younger brother of Rhett, where Rhett is handsome in a rugged way, Ryan is on the pretty side if you wish. Having slept through half of Dublin, he and his brother are heading to America to compete in the Pro Rodeo Cowboy Circuit. A dream really, so this was a very exciting time for Ryan…could almost have been even more in the mile high club if his brother didn’t pull the responsible card on him. It’s going to be a LONG 9 months!!

Adeline is a girl who is pretty much always around family, she is there to work, help and just be. It is perfectly fine until she decided she is going to follow her own dreams, that don’t involve working for her family any longer. Easier said than done!

One evening changes it all, a meet and some sassy fiestiness later….what can go wrong? So this is where it would be great if you read Book #1 BUT no worries, this one gives out enough back-story and info that you will be fine. What I love about this book is that Adeline does not give…not an inch and makes Ryan work for it. Their situation is no ideal, considering why Ryan is in the States and the rules his brother made. Also Adeline, she has a plan, remember…yeah, ALL’S FAIR IN LOVE AND WAR! is all I am going to say!!

A QUICK SLOW BURN, but very SIZZLING once there! *fanning self*
