It was just supposed to be a week-long vacation for my brother’s wedding.

I wasn’t supposed to find her. A woman I’m inexplicably drawn to. A woman I can’t keep my hands off of. A woman who doesn’t hesitate to ask for what she wants.

Kimmy couldn’t saunter into my life at the worst possible time.

I have an injury that might mean the end of my career if things don’t change. The only thing I’m focused on is getting healthy and capable of playing my next season. Otherwise, I’m done for. Just a guy who used to be good at hockey once upon a time, and I’m not about to let that happen.

So when she’s the one to approach me with a “what happens in Vegas stays in Vegas” type situation, I barely hesitate. A little distraction can’t hurt. Besides, we’re both on the same page—one week and then we go our separate ways three hundred miles apart.

Sooner than I expected, I’m all wrapped up in her—and not just her body. Her smiles. That wild, untamable hair. Her laughter. Confidence. Hell, she’s everything I’ve been looking for.

It was supposed to be a fling, but I want more. Even if it means I’m in for the fight of my life.

It’s my shot… and I’m taking it.

  This destination fling is sure to delight! With the fourth book in the Las Vegas Vipers series from Stacey Lynn we get a vacation vibe as Max connects with another member of the wedding party when he stands up with his brother and sets out on what’s supposed to be simply a fling. There wasn’t much hockey action in this book, but there was talk of the sport a lot as he recovered from an injury. I enjoyed their connection, but felt the relationship was rushed at the end in particular. Max is easy to love and I found myself rooting for him throughout the entire story. Kim is accomplished and a real go-getter, so seeing her let herself actually relax and enjoy life with Max was really heartwarming. I recommend this book as well as the entire series to anyone who enjoys a hockey romance with a strong camaraderie of players, delectable passion and goodhearted people.        

Shot Taker by Stacey Lynn is now live!

 

A week away for my brother’s wedding was supposed to be a chance to unwind, not get tangled up with a bridesmaid…

I have an injury that could end my career— and unless I’m ready to hang up my skates and become a hockey has been, the only thing I should be focusing on is getting healthy and playing my next season.

Kimmy saunters into my life at the worst possible time, but when she proposes a “what happens in Vegas” type situation, I figured what could it hurt. Especially when we’re both on the same page—one week and then we go our separate ways… three hundred miles apart.

Before I know it, I’m all wrapped up in her—and not just her body. Her smiles. That wild, untamable hair. Her laughter. Confidence. Hell, she’s everything I’ve been looking for and I can’t keep my hands off her.

It was supposed to be a fling, but now I want more. Even if it means I’m in for the fight of my life. This might be my only shot… and I’m taking it.

Blackjack

As Vice President of the Manchester chapter of the Untamed Sons, I have one job—to stand at my president’s side. That’s what I’ve done since we came here to expand our territory. I’m always on the lookout for trouble, but I never expected to find her in a casino in my home patch. She looked sweet, innocent, then she took me for everything I had. I’m a gambling man but that night I played my cards wrong and lost. I never expected to see her again, but when she turns up at the clubhouse telling me her life is in danger I have to put our past behind to save her.

Elyse

Robbing a member of an MC isn’t my smartest plan, but I’m desperate. The man I owe money to is escalating. He’s forcing me to do things I would never have thought possible before this happened to keep me and my brother safe. Now I’m staring at a positive pregnancy test, wondering if the only person who can fix all of this is the man whose baby I’m carrying—the man I robbed.

 

Emotional, gritty and addictive! The second book in the Untamed Sons MC: Manchester Chapter series is sure to please as drama, passion and danger rear their heads quickly. A passionate meet-cute turns into a cunning subterfuge that leaves hard feelings and lasting impressions. Loved every minute of it!

Blackjack has met his match when a wily con catches his eye and leaves a lasting impression and lifechanging surprises.

Elyse is in a dire position that forces her to act in an uncharacteristic way, but the goodness in her heart overpowers the lies quickly.

I highly recommend this book as well as the entire series to anyone who enjoys a dangerous MC romance filled with goodhearted folks and emotional, yet angsty happily ever afters.

five-stars




Enemies to friends to almost lovers…then back to kind-of enemies…to lovers. For a guy who wanted to keep things simple this is anything but.

Fiona knew Knox would be mad when she moved in next door.

And not because she brought a collection of wild animals with her.

And she was right.

So she intended to leave him alone. Mostly.

But he’s not ignoring her. He’s actively working to send her and her “ridiculous menagerie” (rude) right back out of town.

Still, as hard as she tries, it’s impossible to stop thinking about the small town grump’s long hair and tattoos and that mouth.

Not the one that’s almost always set in a grim line and says things like, “you got a permit for that?”

Nope, the one that kisses her like she’s everything he’s ever wanted and says very dirty things in her ear. And sweet, protective, supportive things. Sometimes. Accidentally. When she catches him off-guard.

The one that also says he only wants a long-distance fling with her. Nothing serious. And that he never dates women he sees every day. Like his neighbor.

Well, fine. If he doesn’t want her—and her unbelievable past and that-can’t-be-real future—then she doesn’t want him either. He can just kiss her…giraffe. (Yeah, she actually has a couple of those.)

Now she just needs to convince her heart to give him up.

What a joyful series this has been! I thought the steamy cajuns in the original series were pulling all the feels, but once this spin off Boys of the Bayou Gone Wild series came to life, it was steamy and heart melting sweetness all rolled up into one delicious read after another. I’m excited to see what the future holds for Autre and the family we have made while visiting over the years!

The characters in this story have been bringing a smile to our face many times over as their attraction and bantering sass played off each other in prior books so it is no surprise to anyone that they are adorable together, have a sexual chemistry off the charts every minute they are in site of each other and that each of their strong personalities comes to life when paired against the other.

I adored this book and highly recommend it as well as the entire series to anyone who loves pulse pounding attraction and humor mixed into a feel good steamy romance.

 

 

 

 


She’s the only woman he can’t resist.

And now she lives right next door.

 Kiss My Giraffe, a spicy grumpy sunshine romantic comedy, and the final standalone in the Boys of the Bayou Gone Wild series from New York Times bestselling author Erin Nicholas, is available now!

Read on for a look inside Kiss My Giraffe!

“Remember that thing we talked about at Christmas?”

Knox felt his gut clench. They’d talked about sleeping together. And him becoming the temporary foster dad to three baby otters.

And they’d kissed for the first time. A kiss that had been causing annoying, unwelcome, frustrating dirty dreams for three fucking months.

“About having a salacious affair where we sneak around behind our friends’ backs and sleep together whenever I’m in town?” she pressed when he didn’t answer.

“Yes. I remember.”

Too well. He was incredibly pissed about how often he’d replayed that conversation and how restless he’d been waiting for her to call or come back to Autre.

He didn’t pine for women. Ever. He did the opposite of that.

But now she was here. And Knox wasn’t sure what he was feeling. Her showing up unannounced wasn’t unusual. Fiona Grady rolled into Autre without warning more often than not in her grape-soda-purple truck that sent his heart hammering and cock hardening.

But it had been three months since he’d seen her. Since they’d talked. Since he’d had any clue what she was doing, where she was, how she was.

Suddenly, she was on his doorstep asking about their plan to bang whenever she was in town for a couple of days?

“Okay, well, there’s something I need to tell you that will make you not want to do that anymore,” she said. “So I was wondering if maybe you wanted to get naked together once before I told you and ruined everything?”

He opened his mouth to reply. Then shut it without a word. What the hell?

He glanced over his shoulder. Three minutes ago, he’d been sitting at his kitchen table doing paperwork with a cup of coffee and listening to a podcast about new creative urban development ideas.

Now the woman he was low-level obsessed with was on his porch asking if he wanted to have sex before she told him something that would make him not want to have sex with her anymore.

He ran a hand through his hair. This was why Fiona Grady was no good for him. She came into his carefully controlled and organized life and made things chaotic and messy.

“Are you sick?” he asked.

“Sick? No.”

“Dying?”

“No.”

“Is anyone dying?”

“No.”

“Are you married?” He braced himself. He knew very little about this woman, actually, and if she belonged to someone else, he’d… leave her alone. And hate that man. And never forgive her for stirring him up like this.

“Absolutely not.”

“Engaged?”

“No.”

Okay, that was all…way too much of a relief. He should not be this happy to hear that.

“Did you kill someone?” he asked.

She tipped her head, her mouth curling. “Is that a definite deal-breaker?”

No, probably not. Knox narrowed his eyes.

“No, I haven’t killed anyone.”

“Are the Feds looking for you? Or will I be implicated in some kind of crime if I let you in?”

“Not that I’m aware of.”

“That’s not a no.”

“I’m just being honest.”

Fair enough. Fiona was a wild animal advocate. The type of person to show up at roadside petting zoos and ‘circuses’ to monitor how the animals were treated and hand out literature to people attending the events, raising awareness about the poor conditions and treatment of those animals. She showed up to help rescue and care for animals, wild and domestic, after natural disasters such as hurricanes and wildfires. She regularly lobbied local, state, and even the national government for animal protections.

The chance that she could have done something in the “gray area” for one of her causes was pretty good.

The problem with that was he knew that wouldn’t keep him from wanting her.

She was precisely the kind of woman he should be avoiding.

He studied her face for another long moment, then gave in to the inevitable. He pushed his door open.

“Yeah?” she asked.

“Yeah.”

She wasn’t dying, wasn’t married, and hadn’t killed anyone. And he wanted her more than he’d ever wanted another woman in his life. So how was he possibly going to shut the door on her? After three months of missing her? He wasn’t that strong. Or stupid.

What happens when you find your soul mate but she belongs to someone else?

Months ago, famed wedding-gown designer Jax Braden met the woman of his dreams when a bride-to-be came in for a consultation. He’s tried to move on, but there is no forgetting beautiful, smart, and refreshingly real Jordan Lawler, or the loneliness she cleverly tries to hide. When Jordan hires him to design her wedding gown, Jax knows he’s in trouble, but he cannot walk away. As business meetings turn to late-night confessions, their connection deepens, igniting passion too strong to deny. They’re drawn into an inescapable and forbidden love. Loyalties are tested and hearts are frayed, but neither will cross that invisible line in the sand. Come along for the sexy, emotional ride as Jax and Jordan face their toughest competitors yet—their hearts.

 

This one is going to cause a stir, but it’s no less powerful than the rest! In all honesty this book is going to trigger some readers who will not be able to see past the emotional cheating thought that rears it’s head early on, BUT … if you can take into context the intentions and obvious care they each put in to not crossing the point of no return, you will have to admit you love Jax and Jordan’s story. It’s heartfelt and endearing and I loved their happily ever after!

Jax is a sweetheart. He fell hard for Jordan the second he laid eyes on her across the room, but he respected her situation and took great care in not sullying her relationship.

Jordan is loyal to a fault and it almost has her sacrificing herself wrongly, which becomes glaringly obvious in the end. I liked watching her realize what love really is.

I highly recommend this book as well as the entire series to anyone that enjoys a close knit family being the backdrop to a hot and steamy romance that begins with a sweet friendship.

Tangling up with my new physical therapist, Mila Lewis, is a mistake. One I can’t seem to stop making.

When I sign with the Tennessee Thunderbolts, I have two goals: prove my injury hasn’t benched my career and get back to New York.

But then, I meet Mila, the enigmatic therapist tasked with rehabbing my shoulder.

With her long ponytail, professional demeanor, and girl-next-door look, Mila is nothing like my usual type. She’s better—a good girl with sad eyes and a tragic past our small-town loves to dissect.

With the entire town up in her business, our budding connection is far from simple. I’m not staying, and Mila will never leave.

Deep down, I know I should walk away and let her find the happily-ever-after she deserves.

But I can’t. Not without showing her that it could be me.

And that may be the biggest mistake of all.

 

A rejuvenated NHL team is bursting into the spotlight! With the first book in the Tennessee Thunderbolts series we are introduced to several familiar faces as players are traded, former players and coaches are stepping up to buy a franchise and new friendships and rivalries are paving the way forward. I loved the passion of the sport, the camaraderie of a newly formed team and the sweet family and love connection. I’m looking forward to more to come in the series!

Mila is a sweetheart whose past imploded when she least expected it and she was left to pick up the pieces. I loved her spirit and watching her welcome happiness and love again.

Devon has a family support system that is to die for, and as he fights to overcome the injury that has been derailing him, he falls for life’s unexpected.

I highly recommend this book to anyone who loves a hockey romance filled with love, laughter, and so much heart you’ll be hooked in no time!

Spending the night in jail isn’t exactly how I planned to spend Christmas, but I’ve had worse holidays…

Now that I’m out, it’s time to accept my real punishment. Coaching ten-year-old terrors on the ice, in my non-existent free time. My Coach thinks it’d be good for me. Remind me where I came from. He should know I’ve tried every day of my life for the last ten years to forget.

The youth hockey league is a hell I didn’t plan on and the worst penalty possible…
Until the day a sweet, single mom cracks a joke about her kid, and then all bets are off.

I’m the best defenseman in professional hockey, but I didn’t see her coming… now what in the hell do I do? I’m not equipped for a relationship. I’m definitely not ready to have a kid depending on me, but I can’t deny she makes me feel things— want things I never imagined I could have.

I should save us both the trouble and stay far away from her. But rules were made to be broken, and I was never good at following them anyway.

  He had me from hello! The Las Vegas Vipers series is addictive and book three kept that high energy and emotional pace up well. I loved the characters, the connections and the emotional growth as they worked towards their happily ever after. I can’t wait for more in the series!

Dominick is closed off and cold on the outside, but beneath the surface he’s a wounded soul who only wants the best for the little sister he adores. Watching him let Holly into his inner thoughts and fears was magical.

Holly is a doll. She’s had hard knocks like you wouldn’t believe, but she refuses to close her heart off to the good things in life and in the people around her.

I highly recommend this book as well as the entire series to anyone who enjoys a good hockey romance chock full of drama, friendship and sweet, sexy love!

The scars that cut deepest are the ones beneath the surface…

Detective Addison Hale is a survivor. The armor she uses to hide her scars keeps her safe on the job, and holding people at arm’s length is a small price to pay when there’s a stalker on the loose.
Especially since he’s after the sister of impulsive firefighter Ryan Dempsey, who she had a scorching-hot fling with two months ago.

The fling she can’t forget, even though she knows how dangerous it is to get close. To feel.

Ryan will do anything to keep his sister safe, even if it means he has to play by Addison’s rules. But when the stalker sets his sights on the smart, sexy detective, Ryan finds he’ll do anything for her, including risk his life to fight at her side.

But this enemy is as cunning as he is deadly and he’ll stop at nothing to get what he wants.

Addison and Ryan must outrun the shadows and outwit a killer.

No matter the cost.

 

An emotional connection of danger and passion! The fourth book in The Intelligence Unit series continues the tradition of grabbing my attention from the start and keeping me spellbound throughout. I love the group of characters behind each core player in the romance this time and the danger aspect added a suspenseful thrill. Loved every minute of their story!

Addison is one tough cookie and she doesn’t let much get to her. The burning attraction she feels for Ryan is something that she lets slip through her cracks … just once … and then once more …

Ryan is a total sweetheart and getting to know his family side was heartwarming.

I highly recommend this book as well as the entire series to anyone who enjoys a bit of suspense wrapped up into a close knit group of co-workers who became family to each other over the years as each one finds their forever love along the way.

When workaholic Boston attorney Deirdra de Messiéres is passed over for a well-deserved promotion, she takes a two-month hiatus to show her boss just how much he needs her and heads home to Silver Island. But beyond seeing her sisters happy, home is not where Deirdra’s heart is. She has no interest in their family restaurant, the Bistro, or reliving hurtful childhood memories, and absolutely no interest in spending a single second with Josiah “Jagger” Jones, the Bistro’s too-laid-back musician and chef. Sure, the hippie is hot, but he drives her nuts. The guy lives in a van with his dog, and he can’t even commit to a solid work schedule. To make matters worse, he’s always around. She needs to get off the island, stat.

Jagger has overcome his own personal trials to place stock in life’s pleasures: family, friends, peace…and if he has his way, one positively beautiful, absolutely uptight attorney. Jagger knows he’s the perfect person to help Deirdra deal with her hurtful past and find her way back to being happy.

A chance encounter leads to deep conversation, and night after liberating night, Deirdra lets down her guard. But neither has plans to stay on Silver Island. Free-spirited Jagger has wanderlust, and Deirdra has a career to return to. They’re on different paths, and plans for a future together don’t stand a chance. But when has anything gone according to plan?

 

OMG, they are too adorable for words! I always love a Melissa Foster couple, but every once in awhile there’s a magical one that tweaks my heart a little harder than normal and Deirdra and Jagger were one of those. Humorous and snarky chemistry, steamy hot passion and such a sweet, gentle love story that kept me devouring every single minute.

Deirdra is a tad different than your typical Foster heroine in that she’s not exactly sweet and open to love. She’s compartmentalized and on the cold side until you get to know the wounded little girl still living in her psyche. It was a joy getting to know her and watching her thrive.

Jagger is the sweetest, and even though he’s not the typical alpha hunk we see in a Foster novel, he carried himself as strong, capable and loving just the same and I adored him.

I highly recommend this book as well as the entire series to anyone who enjoys a smoking hot romance equally balanced with fun and laughter in a friend and family centric setting.

Code Name: Revenge (Jameson Force Security, Book 9)
Sawyer Bennett
Release Date: April 19, 2022

 

Synopsis:

When Kynan McGrath approached me about joining Jameson Force Security, I jumped at the chance. Just call me Dozer Burney, one half of the genius duo who keeps the team at the forefront of security technology. The move from NASA to Jameson also put me back on the east coast, closer to those who mean the most to me.

Jessica Anderson has been my best friend since college. A single mom who found herself mixed up with a dangerous man years ago, she’s been living a safe, quiet life in Miami after helping police put him behind bars. We both knew her safety, and that of her daughter, was reliant on him staying locked up. So when I see an alert that he’s escaped from his maximum security prison, I know where he’s heading to exact his revenge.

Now it’s a race against time to get to Jessica before he does.

Protecting her with my life is easy, because there’s one thing I’ve never admitted to anyone, not even myself—I have been in love with Jessica Anderson since the day I met her. And if we both make it out alive, I’ll make sure she knows it every day for the rest of our lives.

One dance at a stranger’s wedding. That’s all it took for me to fall for Alexis.
And then? Disaster. Another man—her boyfriend—gets down on one knee and proposes to her.

I never thought I’d see her again.

Years later, I’m in desperate need of a wedding planner—not for myself, but for my company.

My five brothers and I need to get our new Wilder Resort off the ground, and Alexis is the only one savvy enough to help us.

But there’s the little matter that I still have it bad for her. Alexis has changed since the night we met. She’s gun shy. But there’s a spark between us that will not die. We both fight it, until we don’t.

Until history repeats itself. The same guy who took her away from me is back to do more damage. But this time he’ll have to go through me to get her.

 

Decadently delicious! This steamy match up between eldest brother Eli and Alexis is sure to please as Carrie Ann Ryan turns on the heat and drama in the first book in The Wilder Brothers series. ONE WAY BACK TO ME introduces this set of siblings who are banding together after leaving the military to love and support their way into a thriving business … hopefully! The basic premise is fun and caught my attention quickly. I would have liked a tad more development in spots, but overall I liked the feel of the series and look forward to watching each brother meet their match.

Eli is a stand up guy looking to make a go of this business with his brothers that is coming about just as they all needed it. He’s honest, trustworthy and more than a touch naughty, just the way I like ‘em!

Alexis is sweet and sincere, but she’s made some bad choices in her life that keep coming back to bite her.

I recommend this book to anyone that enjoys a close knit group of siblings who interact in business on a daily basis as each one stumbles across their very own forever.
