Spencer Grayson’s structured world is collapsing. The surrogate he hired to carry his and his late wife’s child has gone missing and the wrong woman is inseminated. There weren’t supposed to be loose ends in this transaction, but it’s turning into a zero-sum game he can’t afford to lose.

Artist Winter Alexander has painted a perfect picture for her life. But when a routine procedure results in an accidental pregnancy, the realistic portrait she painted turns surreal. It’s an error she can't brush away with a tube of titanium-white, no matter how much she might want to. Especially not when the Grayson is determined she become his substitute surrogate.

To Grayson, Winter is an abstract piece, a collection of soulful shapes and swirls he’s hopelessly mesmerized by. One he wouldn’t have envisioned in his life before. Winter finds Grayson controlling at first, but beneath those cold eyes lies a longing, a torch of desire and vulnerability that makes her agree to things she’d never considered.

They embark on a 40-week journey in the name of a child, navigating through a sea of self-doubt, conflicting emotions and rising feelings. When these nine months are over, will Grayson be able to convince Winter to make him and the baby part of her picture-perfect landscape? What happens next is something neither of them sees coming.

 

Excitement from start to finish! When a mix-up occurs at a clinic, the wrong woman ends up pregnant and there’s a whole slew of mystery surrounding the low-down of who was up to no good and why. Overall I enjoyed the story and felt connected to the characters and their outcome. They were well developed and intriguing. The story seemed a tad long and I felt could have been tightened up a bit to not be drawn out so much, and I admit to being irritated that there was no mention of Grayson or Gray being his nickname, yet that was all he was ever called after the introduction and I kept wondering if I was mistaken and it was his first name.

When teacher Winter Alexander goes in to the doctor for a routine procedure, she never expects her life to be irrevocably changed. Now a high-powered man is turning her world upside down with the information he tells her. A sliver of her worst nightmare is coming to life!

Spencer Grayson can’t believe what is happening. His planned surrogate has disappeared, and a stranger has been implanted with his and his late wife’s baby. Heads are going to roll, but first he has to plead his case with this head-strong woman as to why she should agree to carry his baby to term. Before they know it, they are knee deep in attraction for each other, and the mystery of who knew what and why.

My love wand is on a strike.

As bad as that blows, pun unintended, it’s ten times worse for me. I’m a male escort, but not just any escort, I’m the escort. The one with a mile-long waiting list and a pristine reputation that’s very well-deserved.

Only now, I’m on hiatus. Because after years of pleasing women all over the city, my man missile decides to get finicky. And the only woman he wants? Someone I can never have—my best friend’s younger sister, the nerdy and awkwardly adorable Sienna.

She’s working at the agency this summer, keeping me organized, handling paperwork, and most importantly, keeping me on track to finish writing my book about sex and intimacy, which is due to my publisher in thirty days.

She thinks I hate her, that I don’t want her here. The truth is much more twisted. I get hard every time she walks into my office. Her wide blue eyes and pouty mouth drive me wild with desire, and if she stays, I’m not sure how much longer I can stay away from her.

Little Miss Overachiever says she’s here to help? Fine. I’m going to put her nerdy, curvy tush to work.

 

Thrilling us with her signature sass, humor and happily ever afters, Kendall Ryan takes us once again into the life of male escorts! We met Case in the first book in this series and knew he was going to make for an interesting hero one day … and that day has come! He’s living life one day at a time enjoying what he’s built with hard work, determination and sure, his sexy body helped. When his best friend wants him to hire his sister to help on the admin side of the business, he’s reluctant, but he’d do just about anything for a friend … so in walks Sienna. Young, tempting and the only thing to make his body stir in awhile. Fun, fast-paced and oh so yummy. Really enjoyed it!

Escort Case Smith is stressed out more than ever before. He’s supposed to be writing a book on his sexual prowess that’s due to his editor in a month and he has absolutely nothing to show for it. The part of his body that has made him such a success over the years is all of a sudden refusing to perform, and then the traitor stands at attention when the one woman he can’t have walks through his door!

Sienna Johnson is fresh out of college and doesn’t have a clue what she wants to do with her life. She’s hesitant when her escort brother Ryder drags her in to help his boss out with paperwork for the summer, but she’ll give anything a try. Her chemistry with Case makes for a good environment in helping him crank out the words for his book deadline, but the attraction that keeps drawing them towards each other is going to get them into trouble if her brother finds out!

Meet the Wynns—a hockey dynasty built on family, money, and drama.

After an injury forced Théo Wynn to give up professional hockey, he turned to his second love: numbers. Now, as the general manager of his grandfather’s NHL team, the Los Angeles Condors, Théo is dying to prove to the rest of his family—especially the brother who betrayed him—that he’s just as successful as the rest of them. If only Théo had a gorgeous woman on his arm to complete the picture. . . .

Lacey Olson needs to get out of Las Vegas right now, thanks to her no-good, crooked brother. When a handsome stranger who’s out partying with friends comes to her rescue in the cocktail lounge where she works, they strike up a conversation that leads to a crazy plan: her leaving with Théo for L.A. tomorrow. A few drinks later, the idea gets even crazier: a quickie marriage that works for both of them.

But back in California, Lacey immediately turns Théo’s precise, well-ordered life into one big beach party. And before long, she’s tempting him with her smart mouth, sexy body, and sunny charm. The last thing Théo needs is a real relationship to distract him. Because he only plays to win. . . .

 

With lots of drama, Kelly Jamieson kicks off a brand new hockey family saga with her latest release PLAY TO WIN. The characters are fairly well developed, and though we have a lot of family to get familiar with, the key players are drawn forward slightly in order to make several of the family members background until their time to shine comes up later. I loved Theo & Lacey’s story and look forward to getting to know JP in the next book in the series!

Las Vegas cocktail waitress Lacey Olson finds herself in need of a rescue from some very bad guys her brother is mixed up with. She just so happens to be serving a group of sexy hockey players when it all goes down and one steps forward to defend her honor. Before the night is over, they agree she’s coming with him to L.A. tomorrow … oh and they get married!

Theo Wynn might be an offspring of the famous Wynn hockey family, but his playing days are over thanks to an injury and he’s just trying to find some other way to fit in. He’s had some success in Vegas, and now his grandfather is handing over some of the reins in order to make him the GM of the Los Angelas Condors, but he’s going to have to buckle down and work hard to achieve the success he needs. Too bad he has a sexy bombshell of a temporary wife distracting him from work, but she’s a great support system when he has to walk into that dreaded family dinner that holds his former best friend brother cozied up to the girlfriend he stole out from under Theo!

Strong characters, a compelling plot and just enough mystery to nab my attention and keep it throughout! The powerful Black family is once again center stage with the second book in the To Serve and Seduce series. When Simone’s best friend finds herself in need of some help, Simone calls out the big guns of her brothers the lawyer, PI and cop. Lots of mystery, sexy seduction and close knit family time. Really loved this story!

Getting in deep has never felt this good...

Commercial diver Tara Hunter nearly lost everything in an accident that saw her medically discharged from the navy. With the help of the Warrior Fight Club, she’s fought hard to overcome her fears and get back in the water where she’s always felt most at home. At work, she’s tough, serious, and doesn’t tolerate distractions. Which is why finding her gorgeous one-night stand on her new dive team is such a problem.

Former navy deep-sea diver Jesse Anderson just can’t seem to stop making mistakes—the latest being the hot-as-hell night he’d spent with his new partner. This job is his second chance, and Jesse knows he shouldn’t mix business with pleasure. But spending every day with Tara’s smart mouth and sexy curves makes her so damn hard to resist.

Joining Tara’s wounded warrior MMA training program seems like the perfect way for Jesse to blow off steam—except now they’re getting in deep and taking each other down day and night. And even though it breaks all the rules, their inescapable attraction might just be the only thing truly worth fighting for.

 

A sexy connection right from the start! With the third venture into the Warrior Fight Club series, we’re getting the story of tough gal Tara and her hunky obsession Jesse. Their story was exciting from start to finish, and it was great to get to see some familiar faces again. Looking forward to more in the series.

Tara Hunter didn’t let a near death injury stop her. Yes, it might have forced her to leave her beloved Navy job, but she rallied and pushed herself at the Warrior Fight Club to work through the fear and anxiety she faced until she was able to make herself dive again. She’s coming back for her second season with the commercial dive team that has quickly become like family. On the eve of the start of the season, she happens upon a wickedly sexy stranger at her favorite bar.

Jesse Anderson put his twenty in with the Navy and has recently gotten out. He’s burnt out, stressed and facing a lot of guilt and what ifs. He’s hopeful this new diving job will be just what he needs to acclimate himself to civilian life again. If the welcome to town is anything to show, it could all work out just fine. Until he walks in for his first day and realizes his good time last night is part of his new dive team!

Hold on to your hat for Violet's wildly hot love story! Lizza is up to her old tricks again, and Violet is in for the surprise of a lifetime!

Two years ago Violet Vancroft was a nomadic artist who never wanted to put down roots and Andre Shaw was a prominent Boston physician whose roots ran too deep to unearth. Their love didn't stand a chance-or at least that's what Violet believed when she received a plea for help from the sister she'd never really known-so she snuck away like a thief in the night.

Now Andre travels the world setting up new medical clinics, and Violet has finally found the family she'd always craved and the roots she'd never known she wanted. When their paths cross unexpectedly, it's not the reunion either one imagined. But they've never stopped loving each other, and after the dust of anger and hurt settles, passion ignites even hotter than before. As the end to Andre's time at the Cape nears, reality sets in, leaving them no closer to a future than they were before. Violet and Andre are forced to dig deep to discover if they're destined to live apart forever or if true love really can conquer all.

 

Steamy, raw, and exhilarating! Melissa Foster has such a way of making us feel like we’re best friends with all of her characters too! We’ve always known that Violet had a history she wasn’t spilling, and it’s just come to life before our eyes when Andre shows up on the Cape! Their connection is powerful and the side of Vi that comes out when she’s with him is sweet. The conflict of their story was basically over by halfway through the book, but they were such a cool couple together that I didn’t mind it just being the two of them enjoying each other, and of course she had a whole other side of her life that she had to introduce him to. Really love this couple and this series in general! Looking forward to more to come!

Two years ago, wild-child Violet Vancroft ended the nomadic lifestyle her mother had taught her when she settled into life at the Cape with her sister Desiree. Life and distance had them more estranged than ever, but even grizzly Vi has to admit that she has loved getting to know the grown up Des and all of her wild and crazy friends. Life’s been good … or at least as good as it can ever be when a piece of you is missing.

Dr. Andre Shaw can’t believe it’s her! He attends a wedding, and finds the missing love of his life. He searched for her after she disappeared in the night two years ago, and just when he’s decides to get on with his life, she’s stirring him up again. Does she know how much she hurt him? Did she ever care about him at all? Andre is determined to get answers … whether Violet wants to poor her heart out or not!

Ghosts are real.

Well, technically speaking, maybe not. But the ones that haunt a man’s soul? Those are very real. So real, in fact, that there are times when Castiel would rather silence them forever in the worst way possible than to go on living with them haunting his every step.

All it took was one single second in time for his attention to drift, and everything changed.
Life as he once knew it, is over.

Now he’s struggling to make sense of the pieces that are left, and he’s fairly sure at least half of them are missing.
He’s living for three things now.

His club—the Bear Bottom Guardians.

His work as a police officer for Bear Bottom Police Department.

And the occasional glimpse of a girl that makes his spirit feel free.

Despite the ghosts that haunt him, he’s not willing to present them with another target. Which is why he has to stay away from her. He can’t touch her. He can’t talk to her. He can’t get anywhere near her.

Not and live with himself afterward.

The only problem is, Turner doesn’t care what Castiel wants. She also has a solution for his ghosts.

You may call her Ms. Ghostbuster.

 

An emotional read! With the next book in the Bear Bottom Guardians MC series, we get Castiel’s book. He packs a punch with his stoic front, but underneath, he’s a really gentle guy. He was already attracted to Turner, and when they are the only ones in sight when tragedy strikes, it bonds them. I enjoyed their story. I felt like the story of his past got dropped a good bit, and no longer matches the description of the book, but the story was powerful none-the-less. Good addition to the series!

Police Officer Castiel Hendrix doesn’t feel like he has a lot going for him these days. He works hard and the rest of the time he devotes his life to the MC. He has to keep his mind busy … too busy to remember the past that haunts him. He lives with pain, loss and regret … and so many “if onlys”.

Turner Hooch mixes with Castiel like oil and water when she meets him, but she can’t deny there is a strong attraction under the surface. He drives her crazy … but when happenstance has him in the right place at the right time to help pick up the pieces when her entire world falls apart, she starts to see what a great guy he really is.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Ghosts are real.

Well, technically speaking, maybe not. But the ones that haunt a man’s soul? Those are very real. So real, in fact, that there are times when Castiel would rather silence them forever in the worst way possible than to go on living with them haunting his every step.

All it took was one single second in time for his attention to drift, and everything changed.

Life as he once knew it, is over.

Now he’s struggling to make sense of the pieces that are left, and he’s fairly sure at least half of them are missing.

You can’t put the brakes on love…

Ronnie Ashford needs a distraction. In the morning, she has to offer arrogant, conventional Jack Crews a job and convince him not to take it. She doesn’t need anyone’s help, thank you very much. But tonight is all about the tall, sexy stranger who just walked in the bar—and all the delicious trouble they could get into together. Too bad just as things are heating up between them, he whispers the three little words that destroy everything: “I’m Jack Crews.”

Jack is determined to connect with fiery Ronnie—in bed and out of it—but her terms are clear. If he takes the job, helping her acquire prized artifacts for her mysterious bosses, anything between them is strictly off-limits. Somehow he has to convince a woman who’s never felt like she belonged that she’s found her place—with him. And with the danger sparking hotter than the fire between them, it’s going to be one unforgettable trip…

 

A rollercoaster of emotion, sass and sizzling hot chemistry! With the second book in her Road to Love series, Lori Foster brings us a cast of familiar faces, adorable animals and a proof yet again what an incredible family this is turning out to be. We loved his brother Brody in Book One, and now we’re getting to know Jack, and he’s YUMMY! The connection between him and Ronnie is off the charts hot and his protective streak is coming on strong. Really enjoyed their story and am looking forward to what’s to come!

Ronnie Ashford is dreading the job offer she’s being forced to make. Her bosses are like family to her, so she can’t let them down but she just feel like their worry isn’t warranted. She can do the same great job she’s been doing … without adding a man to the mix!

Jack Crews thinks it’s his lucky night when a stunning woman starts giving him the eye across the room. She makes it clear she wants one night … no names, no promises. How was he to know the mere sound of his name being tossed out by a buddy as they walked out of the bar would bring their time together to a screeching halt? It seems she’s the woman he has an appointment with tomorrow … and he’s the man she’s determined to get to turn down the job offer she has for him. Yeah, not happening.
