A few years ago, when his sister went missing, Haggard Crow turned into something he never wanted to be. A killer.

Even after his sister is rescued a year after she was kidnapped and sold, Haggard ‘Thief’ Crow doesn’t have any plans on changing. He sort of likes the zero fucks given guy that he is now.

Bonus points, he saves women and children from extreme situations, along with his club and real life brothers by his side.
After a horrible marriage, Haggard has zero plans of ever finding a woman again. One-night stands not counting, he adores his life as a single man. There are no expectations. No ‘where are yous’ and ‘are you coming homes.’

The life he chooses to live is a simple one. Until he makes a huge mistake, and he steps over that line between ‘daughter’s best friend’ and ‘a woman he desperately wants.’

Before long, he can’t stop thinking about her. Can’t stop wanting her. Can’t stop feeling things for her that a man twenty years her senior should never feel for a girl he watched grow up.

After one lapse in judgment, he decides she needs to go. But the funny thing is, he never expected Sophia Madden to fight back. And dirty at that.


An exhilarating start to a new series by Lani Lynn Vale! ALWAYS SOMEONE’S MONSTER is dramatic, heartwarming and sexy as all get out, but underneath it all stands a powerful message about standing up for what is right. Vale doesn’t write the most gritty MC romance you will ever read, but her heroes are always alpha with a major twist of sweet goodness that makes them endear themselves to her reader’s heart quickly and easily. I loved the twists and emotional turns of this book and am looking forward to the next in the series!

Haggard is tough and tantalizing and I enjoyed every delightful minute in his company.

Sophia is a sweetheart who keeps getting life’s hard knocks tossed at her time and again, but she perseveres and becomes a stronger person because of it.

I highly recommend this book to anyone who enjoys an alpha hero with a cuddly heart of gold who isn’t afraid to take a wrong turn if it’s for the good of his loved ones.

Falling for his fake fiancée wasn’t part of the plan!

Securing the fortune owed to the Texas Cattleman’s Club is a top priority for its new president, Carson Wentworth. But to get there, he needs to win over rival Lana Langley and unify their feuding families. What better way than through a wedding…or at least a fake engagement? It might even be fun.

Lana has her doubts. They’ve been battling each other so long, how can they make their charade believable for one full month? Perhaps the key is the chemistry raging between them—which could also be their downfall!


Fast paced and highly entertaining! FROM FEUDING TO FALLING by Jules Bennett is the fourth book in the Texas Cattleman’s Club: Fathers and Sons series for Harlequin Desire and this enemies to lovers story is sure to please TCC fans. The plot is quick to develop into a fake relationship between the longtime feuding Wentworth and Langley families and kept me watching throughout.

I recommend this book as well as the entire series to anyone who enjoys a high powered cast of the Texas elite working their way through business ventures, personal drama and happily ever afters.

Series: The Kingston Family #4

He’s a playboy rock star living the rock and roll dream...
Until a very real baby scare threatens to bring it all crashing down.

Dash Kingston has learned his lesson and knows his hard-partying lifestyle needs to change. To clean up his playboy image, he needs a fake girlfriend.

There’s just one problem: the perfect woman for the job is a gorgeous blonde who once aroused not just his body but his emotions, sending him running. And leaving her to wake up alone.

For the band’s sake, Cassidy Forrester agrees to play the girlfriend role, but she’s not going to fall for Dash’s charm or sex appeal ever again.

Except this Dash Kingston swears he’s a changed man, and he’s out to win Cassidy over - for good. But only a fool would make the same mistake twice, and Cassidy refuses to let their spark burn her a second time.


Sensual, sweet and so very satisfying! JUST ONE SPARK is book four in The Kingston Family series by Carly Phillips and picks up with rock star Dash and the trouble he’s managed to get himself into. We met his love interest Cassidy in Xander’s book previously as Sasha’s BFF/assistant. Sparks flew the minute Dash and Cassidy were in the same room as the other in that book, so we knew we were going to be in for a good time when they got together. I love this family and this series and now that a major seed has been planted I absolutely cannot wait to get Aurora’s story next!

Dash is an interesting character because we are led to believe he’s led this life of fun and debauchery, but we only know him as a loving brother and a down-to-earth guy who wants to change his way of living for the better. I enjoyed him and his sensitive side a lot.

Cassidy was a great secondary character in Sasha and Xander’s story so to see her get her own happily ever after was really sweet.

I highly recommend this book as well as the entire series to anyone who enjoys a high-powered group of siblings working through the simplicities of family life as drama, love and business unravel around them.
