USA Today bestselling author Stacey Kennedy returns to the passion-filled world of Club Sin and Dirty Little Secrets with this novella featuring a slightly flawed Dom who has six days—and six very steamy nights—on a Caribbean cruise to convince an innocent woman from his past that maybe the best way for two broken people to find true love is to jump headfirst into the deep end of desire.

Liv Sloane needs a vacation. After her cheating ex broke her heart—and their engagement—Liv never fully recovered. In fact, she’s spent the past two years avoiding romance at all costs… with the exception of that sizzling one-night stand she can’t seem to forget. So when her friends from college suggest a reunion cruise, Liv knows a relaxing week of sun, sand, and beach reads is exactly what she needs to clear her mind. But when they board the ship, Liv is hit with two surprises. Her friends accidentally booked a singles cruise, and her one-night stand is waiting on deck.

Miles Schantz has spent the past six months thinking about Liv. As a Dom at one of the hottest sex clubs in Las Vegas, Miles has his pick of women… so why can’t he get Liv out of his head? When he receives an email asking him to join Liv on a cruise, he can’t believe his luck. But when he meets her on board—and she’s completely unaware of her “invitation”— Miles has to come up with a new plan. Six nights of no-strings-attached passion. Six nights of wild fantasies, sexy games, and forbidden adventures. Six nights to show Liv that she belongs with him…

Five friends. One singles cruise. So many sexy shenanigans. Be sure to check out all of the standalone Gone Wild books!

Filled with heat, heart and happily ever afters! With the final book in the Gone Wild series, Stacey Kennedy delights readers with some familiar Club Sin faces! The characters were fresh and easy to relate to and the steam was off the charts!

After a heartbreak, Liz is wary … of men, of love, of ever losing herself in that way again. She’s really easy to relate to and sympathize with.

Miles is heart stopping. He hasn’t been able to get Liz off his mind since their one night together months ago, yet can’t get her to agree to see him again. He can tell she’s skittish and is more than willing to ease her into a comfort zone when fate … and a little helper … put them together on this cruise.

I highly recommend this book as well as the whole series for anyone wanting a fast paced story line filled with fun characters, friendships and lots of yummy sexy times. Really enjoyed the series!

five-stars

An inheritance brought her to Magnolia, but love just might keep her there…

Avery Keller arrives in Magnolia, North Carolina, with one aim: collect her inheritance and quickly put the quirky town in her rearview mirror. But the father who didn’t acknowledge her when he was alive has left Avery a mess to sort through—along with two half sisters she’s never met and a gorgeous single dad living next door. Soon her plan to keep this colorful, close-knit community at a distance gets complicated….

Grayson Atwell has rescued plenty of people in his firefighting career. His work and his little girl, Violet, are his entire world and there’s no time for anything—or anyone—else. But the vulnerability beneath Avery’s prickly facade brings out a fiercely protective side of him. Despite her protests, Gray can see that Avery’s falling under Magnolia’s spell—just like he’s falling for her. Now the only question is: How can he convince her to give them both a chance at forever?

 

This kick-off to a new small town romance series is full of sass and heart and had me chuckling out loud on more than one occasion! Michelle Major never fails to deliver a warm cast of wayward souls just looking for that happily ever after and with THE MAGNOLIA SISTERS, she keeps up her stellar delivery. I’m looking forward to watching Avery’s new-found sisters find their true loves soon!

Avery evokes sympathy from a reader from the first moment she enters the first scene and is in our hearts throughout. She’s tough as nails, but is being thrown for a loop in more than one aspect of her life and it feels like it’s suddenly all crumbling down around her. Watching her connect with these two somewhat bitter sister that she never knew she had is heartwarming.

Grayson is the epitome of a kind-hearted single father and I adored him. He’s helpful, he’s nice and he’s so yummy!

I highly recommend this book to anyone who loves a small town romance filled with a fun supporting cast of townspeople who make the story that much more rewarding. I am highly anticipating the next in the series!

I’m not the same Bebe Grimshaw I was years ago. The woman I was spent years behind the bars of the highest security women’s prison in the nation, my punishment for hacking nuclear codes as part of a crime syndicate I’d gotten in way too deep with. The woman I am today doesn’t regret what I did, or the fact that I got caught, but I am remorseful for the years I lost with my son, Aaron. Released from my sentence early thanks to Kynan McGrath, I joined his team at Jameson Force Security and now put my skills to use helping people.

I’m just trying to get back a piece of what I lost, focusing solely on raising Aaron and my work at Jameson. As long as I have my son and my career, I’m content. But life has a funny way of letting you know exactly what you need, and when a devastatingly handsome stranger named Griffin befriends Aaron at the park, I have to consider I might be missing something. A part of me that was locked away long ago reawakens, and I find myself looking at Griff in a way I’ve not looked at a man in more than a decade.

Just when I think things are starting to look up, my world is turned upside down. Turns out that meeting wasn’t an accident, and things aren’t going my way at all.

Griffin Moore is the man sent here to kill me.

 

Addictive chemistry! With book four in her Jameson Force Security series, Sawyer Bennett once again thrills with the story of the heart of team in CODE NAME: HACKER.

BeBe has been a spunky character since she first stepped onto the scene at Jameson to help Kynan brings down the bad guys. It’s extremely satisfying to see her life play out and get that happily ever after.

Griff is intense. We go into the story believing one thing and slowly start to put the pieces together as he infiltrates BeBe’s world. An explosive connection soon ensues!

I highly recommend this book as well as the rest of the series to anyone who enjoys a cast of close knit characters and friends who band together to better the world one case at a time. Bennett weaves together action, suspense and sex appeal like no other!

I never dreamed I’d meet my celebrity crush while stealing every single pair of my best friend’s pants.

Trust me, my life is not that wild. In fact, the most excitement I usually get is running my fan-favorite Insta thirst account featuring butt-tastic pics of Hollywood superhero Carter Hayes. So, imagine my shock when, in the middle of the cruise ship hallway, I realize the guy whose shirt I'm stuffing slacks inside of is Carter disguised as a tourist. How I manage not to faint dead away, I've got no clue.

When word leaks that Carter might be on board, he asks me to help him maintain his cover. There’s no way I’m gonna say no to that. I just don't share that I’m the anonymous woman behind the fan account that reported sighting him onboard. No biggie. Right?

However, when things between us go from friendly to hot to OMG-I-can’t-keep-my-clothes-on-around-him, all I can do is hope he never discovers my secret. You see, somewhere along the way, Carter went from an untouchable movie star to the man I’m falling for.

Five friends. One singles cruise. So many sexy shenanigans. Be sure to check out all of the standalone Gone Wild books!

Fun, flirty and fantastic! With the third book in the Gone Wild series, Avery Flynn brings us Aubrey’s story in ATTRACTING AUBREY and it’s my favorite in the series so far! I loved seeing a little more mingling of the friends in this book than the prior two.

Aubrey catches a reader’s eye from the very beginning when playing a prank puts her in the radar of a hunky stranger … who on closer inspection is the super-hero actor she’s been lusting after on Instagram! Aubrey is a fun character with more depth than originally expected.

Carter might be a superstar, but he’s just a guy wanting to walk through life unrecognized for a change. He’s amazingly down to earth and earns Aubrey’s affection quickly.

I highly recommend this book and the entire series to anyone wanting a fast paced interwoven series that packs a sizzling punch, but in a light-hearted way. Lots of heat, humor and heart!

Excerpt:

This was beyond a doubt the weirdest experience Carter Hayes had ever had and he’d once spent six hours on a green screen sound stage wearing a CGI suit and pretending to fight a one-eyed zombie giant with poisonous farts.

When he’d turned the corner and found the cute blonde giggling to herself as she pulled one pair of pants after another out of a suitcase, he thought she might be a little touched, as his grandmother used to say. When she held one pair up in the air and declared she was freeing Grace’s sexy thighs, he figured she was drunk already. And just when he thought it couldn’t get more bizarre, she managed to pull him in as an accessory to pants theft and now she wanted him to shove four pairs of pants down his shirt?

This was a mistake. It would only draw attention to himself when he was supposed to be observing others, not be observed. The last thing he needed was for anyone to realize that he wasn’t mild mannered dental laboratory technician Carter Van Stettle from Iowa. This cruise was his opportunity to prove to indie-darling director Kennedy Howard that he could disappear into a part, that movie goers could look up at the big screen and see him as anyone other than The Admiral.

He was all ready to return the pants to their rightful owner and be on his way. It was the smart thing to do. Then, the thief beside him said please and, well, one could only play the most debonair superhero to ever top the box office for so long before some of the character stuck to them. He stuffed the stupid pants up his shirt and tucked the hem of it into his shorts to keep them from falling out. The special effects team on his last movie would have laughed their asses off, but the pants’ paunch effect was actually pretty good.

 

About Avery Flynn

avery-flynn-about-300x300

USA Today bestselling romance author Avery Flynn has three slightly-wild children, loves a hockey-addicted husband and is desperately hoping someone invents the coffee IV drip.

She fell in love with romance while reading Johanna Lindsey’s Mallory books. It wasn’t long before Avery had read through all the romance offerings at her local library. Needing a romance fix, she turned to Harlequin’s four books a month home delivery service to ease the withdrawal symptoms. That worked for a short time, but it wasn’t long before the local book stores’ staff knew her by name.

Avery was a reader before she was a writer and hopes to always be both. She loves to write about smartass alpha heroes who are as good with a quip as they are with their *ahem* other God-given talents. Her heroines are feisty, fierce and fantastic. Brainy and brave, these ladies know how to stand on their own two feet and knock the bad guys off theirs.

All work and no play is no way to enjoy this cruise.

Executive Director Grace Kim figures this reunion with her college friends is the perfect excuse to prove that she knows how to keep work/life balance and enjoy the Caribbean, preferably with her pants intact.

Rich, sexy, brilliant Bryan Sirimongkol has an app for that, and he charms Grace into helping him test it. He offers seven days of the best vacation of her life (bonus, sizzling chemistry) before they return to reality, but he didn't anticipate just how much of his heart he'd give her.

When an accidental error results in a humiliating video of her online, Grace must salvage her career and decide whether to erase Bryan from her memory forever or admit they brought out the best in each other.

 

Workaholics unite! With the second book in the Gone Wild series, Piper J. Drake delights with GAMING GRACE. It’s fast paced and full of charm, but I still feel the lack of interaction between the friends is a large plot point going undeveloped in this series so far.

Grace is easy to like and quick to charm. She is more low-key than most of her friends and is simply looking forward to a little relaxation time … if only one of her friends didn’t decide to play a trick on her.

Bryan is kind and accomplished. When he stumbles upon Grace in a compromising position, he uses his charm to calm the tension and gain a promise of help in testing his latest app. A week of whirlwind outings is sure to please.

I recommend this book to anyone enjoying a low-key romance with a richly developed atmosphere. The characters could have used a bit more fleshing out instead of the food, but overall I enjoyed it.

A hot, funny brother’s best friend rom com . . . with sugar on top!

She's his best friend's little sister. He's known her all his life. He's practically part of the family. There is nothing either of them could do to surprise the other at this point. Then she showed up in his bedroom in lingerie and asked him to take her V-card.

Okay, that was a surprise.

Aiden is pretty sure Zoe was equally surprised when he told her no.

To say that he didn't handle it well would be a massive understatement. Almost as massive as the amount of work he's going to have to do now to convince her that he wants her. Forever.

Right after he tells her that he's bought the company that's her bakery’s biggest competitor.

Maybe if he tells her he’s in love with her first, that will help sugarcoat the whole we're-rivals-in-business-now thing.
So, first "I'm in love with you", then "take off your clothes", then "I'm now your business adversary".

Sure. Piece of cake.

 

Delectably sweet! With the kick-off to her brand new Hot Cakes series, Erin Nichols thrills readers once again with a yummy brother’s best friend rom-com yet steamy delight in SUGARCOATED. The characters draw your attention instantly, there’s a whole lot of laughter and heart throughout and it’s just downright FUN to read.

Zoe was a complex character. She is giving her bakery her all and carrying on traditions that have been in her family for years, but she’s sort of stuck in a rut. She wants excitement, but she’s afraid to reach for it. Aiden brings out a different side to her and helps her develop that adventurous side.

Aiden was simply delightful. Yes, he’s keeping secrets that he should have told from the very beginning, but he’s so sweet and down-to-earth, how can I hold it against him? I really enjoyed watching him reach for the stars.

I recommend this book to anyone who loves a close-knit friends and family small town romance with a major kick of heat, heart and humor. I see the potential for great things with this cast of supporting characters … can’t wait for more!

Excerpt:

“What?” she asked, her eyes wide and blinking. “You thought I’d just be waiting around for you to come back?”

“Yes!” It was the wrong answer, he knew, even as he said it. But it was true.

“You are so full of yourself!” She frowned. “You actually thought I’d be waiting around, pining for you, didn’t you?”

Maybe not crying herself to sleep every night, but thinking about him? Yeah. Fuck. He hadn’t been able to get her out of his mind for more than a few hours at a time. “It’s only been five months,” he said. “Is it really crazy for me to think that you didn’t get your virginity ‘taken care of’ yet?”

“Exactly! It’s been five months!” she said.

“You went twenty-five years without sex, and you couldn’t go five more months?”

“Well, it’s not like you gave me an IOU!” she shot back. “I had no idea when you were coming back, and I assumed your answer would have still been no. So yeah, I moved on, Aiden.”

“Who was it?” he asked, noting his tone was suddenly a little ominous.

“I’m not telling you that.” She looked at him like he was insane.

“Tell me, Zoe.”

No.”

“I’ll find out. This is Appleby. I’ll probably know by the end of tonight.”

“You won’t.” She lifted her chin. “I can promise you that.”

“Bet I do.”

“Why do you really even care? Now you don’t have to do it.”

“Because you’re mine.”

Yeah, shit. See, he’d known that was the wrong answer to give. Guys didn’t go around claiming women like they were property or possessions. He knew that. He’d never had that urge before. This woman was strong and independent and confident and certainly didn’t need him for anything.

But the idea of another man touching her, seeing her naked, making her feel the ultimate pleasure, made his blood boil.

She stood, just staring at him. Then she picked up a cake ball. And threw it at him. It hit him square in the red tie and bounced back onto the table.

“You’re a jerk.”

Yeah, maybe he was. A nice guy would probably just take all her explanations and excuses about why they shouldn’t be together and admit his idea was crazy.

He didn’t say anything. He didn’t wipe away the sticky crumbs the cake ball left on his tie. He picked up the ball and rounded the worktable.

Her eyes widened, and she backed up as he came closer. He kept going. Until her back was against the front of the fridge.

He didn’t say a word as he stopped right in front of her, lifted his hand to cup her face, and leaned in.

Aiden ignored her hands on his chest. She wasn’t pushing. She wasn’t pulling him closer either, but she wasn’t trying to get away. She wasn’t lifting her knee to his balls. She wasn’t saying no.

He stared into her eyes for a long moment. She could stop this. He knew she knew that.

She didn’t.

So he kissed her.

All Kendall Barnes wants is a nice relaxing cruise to reconnect with her friends from college. Instead, they’re mistakenly booked on a singles’ cruise. Despite this series of unfortunate events, Kendall is determined to follow through on her original plan… At least until she meets a gorgeous stranger who might just be enough to tempt her into breaking all her rules.

Alex Jeffries is on his first vacation in over ten years, and he hates every second of it. He can’t stop thinking about what could be going wrong with the bar he owns back home, at least until he meets Kendall and forgets about everything but kissing her. Maybe a party cruise wasn’t the worst idea after all…

Kendall and Alex embark on a sexy fling, but it only takes a few days for the truth to sink in. The mind-blowing chemistry between them is only getting stronger, and despite the expiration date they both agreed on, they can’t help wondering if this vacation fling can go the distance…

Or are they destined to crash and burn when they come back to reality?

 

Explosive chemistry right from the start! With the kick-off book in the highly anticipated Gone Wild series, Katee Robert brings us Kendall’s story in KISSING KENDALL. The heat between these two is off the charts and their story was a lot of fun to read. I did feel there was a noticeable lack of interaction between the friends which is the only thing that would have made the book feel even more complete.

Kendall was super easy to like and sympathize with when she discovers the relaxing cruise she planned to re-connect with her friends from college is going to be far from relaxing because they accidentally got put on a singles party cruise!

Alex is pretty irresistible … for Kendall and for the reader. He’s a workaholic and from the start is worrying about getting back to the family bar that he runs, but he quickly recognizes his good fortune when things start to heat up between them.

I highly recommend this book to anyone who enjoys a steaming hot tryst that accidentally turns into forever. Great characters, a perfect setting and lots of emotions running high. Looking forward to the rest of the series!

Lauren Taylor isn't thinking about love, especially not with the impossibly attractive man she accidentally spilled coffee all over. He's out of her league and she's focused on finishing her oncology pharmacy residency. She's sworn off men who are too handsome for their own good, anyway.

Andrew Bishop can't stop thinking about the gorgeous redhead who crashed into him and then disappeared, even though he should have way more on his mind - like dealing with his Hodgkin Lymphoma diagnosis and finishing out his last year in law school. When Andrew and Lauren run into each other at the cancer center where she's working and he's being treated, they try to keep it professional. They can be friends, and nothing more.

But sometimes life has other plans…

 

A heartfelt debut! With her first novel, Allison Ashley wasn’t afraid to go big! It’s rare the taboo subject of cancer is front and center in a romance novel because let’s be honest, there’s not a lot of laughter surrounding it, but Ms. Ashley delights with a fresh voice who not only shares a touch of what a day in a life is like, but also proves that life isn’t over just because of a diagnosis. I felt the new authorness slightly in the lack of development here and there, but overall, it was a stellar kick off and I look forward to seeing more from this author!

Lauren’s character is easy to like. She’s steps away from the job she’s been dreaming of as an oncology pharmacist when she accidentally falls for an almost patient. Her turmoil is sincere, but their connection is hard to resist.

Andrew is such a down-to-earth likable guy. He’s at the prime of his life and almost to achieve the law degree he’s been working hard towards for years when he receives the devastating news that he has cancer. Meeting Lauren on his first day of treatment gives him the distraction to deliver the strength needed to make it through.

I recommend this book to anyone who enjoys an instant connection and perseverance to let love win. It’s a touchy subject, but it’s written really well and it’s not portrayed as a huge book of sadness. It brings realness to a sensitive time and brings out the beauty of human connection. Really enjoyed Lauren and Andrew!

Tegan Fine has never had a plan—life, business, or otherwise. But she’s always had goals—to laugh daily and to pay it forward as often as she is able, just like her favorite uncle always did. After inheriting her great-uncle’s amphitheater, Tegan makes a risky move to a charming small town on Cape Cod to carry on her uncle’s legacy and hopefully expand the business with her new friend, Harper. Unfortunately, those goals aren’t doing much to help her plan a business strategy for her new endeavor. With Harper counting on her and her uncle’s legacy at stake, she swears off all distractions, determined to succeed. If only she could stop bumping into a certain arrogant, witty, and excruciatingly hot businessman who tweaks her nerves and invades her every thought. Including her late-night fantasies.

Self-professed workaholic Jett Masters never slows down. He lives life with no attachments—except to his clients, to whom he gives his all. A reluctant trip to his hometown has him itching to shake the ghosts of his past and get back to spinning deals and adding to his investments. But when he comes face-to-face with a gorgeous, handsy woman who is quite possibly the snarkiest and most disorganized person he’s ever met, sparks fly, and his sharp mind stumbles. He doesn’t even know her name, but he can’t get her out of his mind.

A chance encounter turns into a wild, sexy night, and their chemistry is off the charts—even if their ideals, and their lives, are worlds apart. Neither Jett nor Tegan is looking for more. Becoming friends with benefits seems like the perfect solution. But when they are trapped together in torrential weather, they work side by side in the aftermath, and every passionate kiss deepens their connection. Secrets are shared, trust is built, and no promises dare be made. As their lives move on, lines begin to blur, hearts get hurt, and their true selves come into focus. Tegan and Jett are left wondering if they make the perfect storm, or if they’ve reached the end of their bayside fantasy.

 

Off the charts chemistry! Melissa Foster more than delights with book six of her beloved Bayside Summers series! In BAYSIDE FANTASIES, we watch dreams come true and old injuries heal when a confidant workaholic and an unbridled life-of-the-party can’t fight their attraction, quickly making a friends with benefits agreement fly out the window.

Tegan Fine is a really fun character. She’s boisterous and happy even at the times of her life that are a bit uncertain. She brightens up ever room she enters and lets her kind heart shine through always.

Jett Masters is attention grabbing. His confidence draws every eye in the room, yet deep down there’s a part of him that still wonders if he’s enough.

I highly recommend this book and the entire series to anyone loving a tight-knit group of friends who are each slowly finding their happily ever afters. Melissa Foster always brings a boatload of heat, heart and happiness to every story!

From temporary fling…

…to baby bump!

Labor and delivery nurse Amanda is in Sydney for work, not to be distracted by “the baby whisperer”—neonatal specialist Dr. Lucius West. But Amanda loves a challenge—especially an intriguing, handsome one. Their fiery clashes in the OR soon turn into passion in the bedroom. But there are consequences to Amanda and Lucius’s insatiable desire…and they’ll have nine months to face them!

Miracles in the Making duet
Book 1 — Risking Her Heart on the Single Dad by Annie O’Neil
Book 2 — The Neonatal Doc’s Baby Surprise

 

This fertility doctor and nurse took baby making to a whole different level! With the second book in the Miracles in the Making duet, Susan Carlisle brings us Lucius West’s story in a colleagues to lovers book, and it’s delightful!

If you read the first in the duet by Annie O’Neil, you were already familiar with Lucius going into this book and if you were like me, you were expecting him to be a bit of an uptight jerk from his sister Kirri’s point of view in her story. I was pleasantly surprised to find that he was truly a nice guy beneath the workaholic persona.

Amanda was easy to like and once sparks started to fly between them, I was pulling for them whole-heartedly.

I highly recommend this duet to anyone who is looking for a romance set in a medical setting with a cast of heartfelt characters. I really enjoyed it!
