Amelia loves her good friend, Avery. So much so that she agrees to do the stupidest thing ever.

A stranger photo shoot.

You know the type. The photographer takes photos of two individuals. Two individuals that, until that day, have never met in their life.

The moment she shows up at the photo shoot, she knows that she made a terrible decision.

Why? Because the total stranger about to be in an intimate photo shoot with her is the hottest thing that’s ever walked the streets of Kilgore, Texas. If not the entire US of A.

***

Adam wasn’t sure why the hell he agreed to something so stupid.

Call it temporary lapse of sanity.

When the photographer who shot his photo for the Kilgore Police Department’s benefit calendar asked him for a favor, he couldn’t say no. Not without looking like a jerk seeing as it was benefiting the Fallen Officer Foundation that he played a rather large part in.

Whatever it was that made him agree, he quickly realizes that it’s not worth it. Not when he walks into the studio and sees the massive bed with blood-red sheets dominating the middle of the room.

So uncomfortable he is at the sight, he’s about to head straight out the door and not look back when she walks in.
Amelia steals his breath away with just one glance, and all of a sudden, getting this stranger into his arms with his mouth on hers sounds like the best idea ever.

 

Sexy, sweet and suspenseful! With book eight in her much loved KPD SWAT Generation 2.0 series Lani Lynn Vale brings on the heat once again with ANY DAY NOW and I loved it! The characters were fresh, the plot was attention grabbing and the instant attraction between the main characters brought on all the feels. I can’t get enough of this series and am looking forward to more!

Amelia is adorable. She’s feisty, she’s sweet and she’s just mouthy enough to constantly be getting herself into one fix or another.

Adam is yummy! He’s manly, he’s kind-hearted and his devotion to Amelia is gorgeous.

I highly recommend this book as well as the entire series to anyone who loves an alpha cast of men who love hard. This group of friends and coworkers always have each others backs and watching them each find their happily ever after is extremely satisfying.

He’s a smooth talking jock in trouble
She’s the solution to his problems.
Love is the last thing they expected to find.

Damon Prescott had it all. Star quarterback. Money. Fame. Now? He’s being accused of taking performance enhancing drugs and banned from the sport and team he loves.

Determined to prove he’s innocent, he hires tough as nails private investigator, Evie Wolfe. She’s able to bring a man to his knees with a glare, yet sensual in ways that take him off guard - and she’s everything Damon didn’t know he needed.

Evie’s used to men dismissing her, especially playboys like Damon Prescott so she’s not buying the sexual lines he’s trying to sell. She’s with him to do a job, nothing more. But you know what they say about the best laid plans? Sometimes you end up between the sheets with an arrogant football player anyway.

But when the case is over, can Damon convince Evie she’s the only woman for him or will she leave him tied up in love?

 

This series has already stolen my heart and I regret NOTHING! With book two in her Dare Nation series Carly Phillips continues to pour on the feels with Damon and Evie’s story in DARE TO TEMPT and I loved every minute of it! What more can we ask for than a tight knit family who are all successful and accomplished finding their forever love one sibling at a time? Oh yeah, being reunited occasionally with our favorite family … their cousins THE DARES! So rewarding!

Damon Prescott is delicious. He’s self-assured, he’s adorable and he’s at the top of his game. It didn’t take long for him to get under my skin and have me pulling for him to clear his name and get the girl.

Evie Wolfe is the bomb. She loves being relaxed but can turn into a bombshell when she needs to and takes no lip from anyone. I loved seeing her let her guard down and let Damon crack her hard shell.

I highly recommend this book and the entire series to anyone who loves a fast paced story filled with family, friendship and electrifying passion. There’s always an intriguing plot and the characters are so easy to love. I’m looking forward to the next book!

five-stars

As the prince of a luxury hotel empire, I am as close to American royalty as one can get. I grew up accustomed to a certain lifestyle. One where people give me what I desire and anything, or anyone, else can be bought. Everyone wants a piece of me, yet no one is actually deserving of my time.

That changes when Bailey Robbins, the smoking hot housekeeper in one of my hotels, catches my attention. Sure, she has curves for days but it’s her smart mouth I can’t help but be intrigued by. I may have avoided relationships all my life, but something about her makes me want to introduce her to my world.

The darker, wicked side of Declan Blackwood.

 

Steamy and emotional! With the ninth and final book in The Wicked Horse Vegas series Sawyer Bennett delights her readers once again with the taming of a playboy in WICKED BILLIONAIRE. The plot is thick with tension and angst, yet the emotional connection between these two from early on brings a softness to Declan that we weren’t expecting. I loved their story and will miss this series so!

Declan Blackwood is self-assured and demanding and I loved every minute of him. It was so rewarding to see Bailey touch a part of his heart that he normally keeps hidden away.

Bailey Robbins is sassy and sure that she deserves more out of life. She happens to be in the right place at the right time to make a giant step forward when she catches Declan’s eye.

I highly recommend this book and the entire series to anyone who loves a super steamy romance with lots of sexual tension, unexpected connections and happily ever afters that will make you melt.

Resisting her may be his toughest test of all...

Finnish hockey star Miikka Laasonen may seem to live a charmed life, but the reality is that he's lonely. His struggle with learning the English language makes it hard for him to fit in and to make matters worse, his Finnish girlfriend tires of their long-distance relationship and dumps him.

Kindergarten teacher Charlotte “Charli” Bartosiewicz made a life-changing decision in her teens, and she’s battled guilt and regret ever since. She punishes herself by refusing to date and staying to herself because she doesn't feel worthy of love.

When introduced by a mutual friend, Miikka recognizes another lonely soul in Charli, but there’s more to it than that, something he’s never felt before. He convinces her to take a chance on him by tutoring him in English, but he really wants her to take a chance on love.

Miikka is determined to convince Charli that she's worthy of him. But even if he does, will their love be strong enough to go the distance?

 

An emotional journey of healing and love! With book six in her delicious Alaska Blizzard hockey series Kat Mizera brings us Miika’s story in CHASING CHARLI and it’s adorable, sweet and sexy all rolled into one! The characters drew me in quickly, had me smiling in no time and continued to pour on the feels thoughout. This book was fast paced, emotional and one of my favorites of the series!

Miikka Laasonen is sexy, brooding and downright adorable. I couldn’t find a thing to dislike about him, and enjoyed getting to know all sides of him as he fell hard for Charli.

Charlotte Bartosiewicz is as sweet as can be, but she has a past that is dragging down her ability to trust and move forward in life. Watching her fall in love with Miikka and see the depth of trust it took for her to accept his goodness was pure magic.

I highly recommend this book and the entire series to anyone who loves a good hockey romance that gives you an emotional read filled with a close knit group of teammates and their families. I always look forward to returning to Alaska!

About the Author:

USA Today Bestselling and award-winning author Kat Mizera is a South Florida native. Born in Miami Beach with a healthy dose of wanderlust, she’s called Los Angeles, Long Island, upstate New York, Massachusetts, New Hampshire and Atlanta home. She’s never been able to pick which locale is her favorite, but if pressed, she’d probably choose the west coast.

A typical PTA mom with a wonderful and supportive husband (Kevin) and two amazing boys (Nick and Max), Kat can usually be found scrapbooking or indulging in her second love (after writing) – traveling. Greece is one of her favorite places in the world. She loves that Athens is a big city with a small-town feel. The food, beaches and culture keep her going back as often as possible.

Kat’s been a working freelance writer for nearly 30 years. She sold her first article–a review of a rock concert–for $10 in 1985. Since then she’s been an entertainment journalist, waitress, bartender, legal assistant, food critic, magazine editor, substitute teacher, and sports writer. She also spent some time working at A & M Records in Los Angeles.

As you can guess from her Las Vegas Sidewinders series, Kat loves hockey and occasionally writes articles about her favorite team, the Florida Panthers. The rest of the time, she writes novels: sexy, romantic fiction that she hopes makes you as happy as it makes her. There’s something enticing about hockey players and romance…

four-half-stars

There are a few lessons one has to learn for themselves. Then there are the lessons that most people don’t have to learn because it’s just not done.

For instance, most people know instinctively that they shouldn’t crave the mother of their brother’s child.

Bourne Pena isn’t most men.

Bourne does everything he can to fight the attraction he feels for Delanie, but in the end, his refusal to go there almost ends up costing him his life.

***

Delanie Davidsdottir just wanted to forget. One night, she wanted to feel like a normal human being.

That one night changes her life and gives her a son that becomes her heart and soul. From that point forward, she does her level best to keep her head on straight and not make any more mistakes.

And falling for her child’s father's twin brother—say that three times fast— would be a mistake. Not only is he Trouble with a capital T, he’s also a SWAT officer that puts his life on the line every single day.

She can’t take another loss like the one she suffered once before.

Then again, Delanie never encountered a man like Bourne Pena before, either.

 

Double trouble! With book seven in her always enjoyable KPD SWAT Generation 2.0 series Lani Lynn Vale delights her readers with the story we were holding our breath for since the last release. With JOIN THE CLUB we get Bourne and Delanie’s story which is the climactic follow up to each of their twins’ story in book six. There were some holes in the story if you didn’t happen to read Booth and Dillon’s book previously that might leave you a bit confused, so I definitely recommend you read JOKE’S ON YOU before reading this one even if you’ve read no other book in the series. For a super fan of the series who knows what is happening, you’ll be pleased with the story line as it’s fast paced, full of heart and steamy in all the right places!

Bourne is a dream of a character. He’s confident and sexy, yet tender and loving with the people that mean the world to him … like his favorite little man Asa and his mama.

Delanie is a joy to get to know and watch her get to finally express the feelings she’s been fighting for Bourne for so many years. Their story is sweet and satisfying.

I highly recommend this book as well as the entire series to anyone who enjoys a close-knit cast of a SWAT team whose members work hard and play harder as they pair up with the women of their dreams and settle into family life. The series is sexy and sassy!

four-stars

I knew the risks of this job when I signed on with Jameson Force Security. Knew my time as a marine would prepare me for the danger I would face. But no amount of training could have ever prepared me for the helplessness of watching my teammates die, the agonizing mental and physical pain of torture, or the despair of captivity.

Returning home to Pittsburgh following a mission gone wrong, I am riddled with guilt and haunted by nightmares. I spend my days trying to regain the parts of myself I lost in that desert, the pieces that made me the Malik Fournier I once was. While the physical effects of my torture are fading, the emotional ones are proving much more stubborn and I find solace from the last person I should ever seek such comfort.

Anna Tate lost even more than I did in that mission. Now a widow and a single mom to the daughter she gave birth to shortly after her husband’s death, Anna offers me comfort I don’t deserve. As my feelings for Anna grow, I worry that once she learns the truth about what happened, she’ll turn her back on me.

I pull her to me just as tightly as I push her away. Hoping this forbidden love will save me from the ghost I’ve become.

 

A hard-fought journey! With the highly anticipated fifth book in her always addictive Jameson Force Security series, Sawyer Bennett brings her readers Malik’s story at long last. Since the series began we’ve known his story and his fate was unknown as he remained missing. With this book, we see his return home, learn some of what happened to him and watch him start the process of putting his life back together. The story was sweet and satisfying, but I honestly wanted more. More feeling, more angst, more gut-wrenching emotion. I wanted my heart torn out and put back together again after what they both had suffered … and I sadly didn’t get that.

Malik has been a draw to the reader since he first went missing during a mission back in the beginning of the series. He’s attached to a few of our favorite characters from Ms. Bennett’s hockey books and was known well before he even came onto the pages of this book.

Anna had her world fall apart and had to put it back together again all by herself. She’s been strong and resilient and shows the reader her true strengh.

I recommend this book and the entire series to anyone who enjoys a close knit group of work buddies who find their forever love in between missions and danger knocking around every corner.

While the physical effects of my torture are fading, the emotional ones are proving much more stubborn and I find solace from the last person I should ever seek such comfort.

Anna Tate lost even more than I did in that mission. Now a widow and a single mom to the daughter she gave birth to shortly after her husband’s death, Anna offers me comfort I don’t deserve. As my feelings for Anna grow, I worry that once she learns the truth about what happened, she’ll turn her back on me.

I pull her to me just as tightly as I push her away. Hoping this forbidden love will save me from the ghost I’ve become.

Tessa Chauncy is the best kind of trouble. Beautiful, sweet and completely off limits. I’ve sat by and watched other men drool after her and forced myself to stay in check. Hey, I’m in the NHL... I have self-control in spades.

Except when it comes to her.

With the bat of her lashes and quick whip of that sharply pointed tongue Tessa can knock grown men to their knees. I’ve seen them wither and crumble under her confident stare— something I’m pretty sure she learned from sparring with me, thankyouverymuch.

But I’m not just falling for her. I’m down for the count.

She’s the girl I wanted, when wanting her was wrong.
She’s also my new roommate--
And oh yeah, my best friend’s little sister.

Heaven help me, I’m probably going to get his fist to my face or his hockey stick shoved in very dangerous places for what I’m about to do, but I don’t think I care anymore.

I’m in love with my best friend’s little sister….and I’m done waiting.

 

Decadently sinful! With book three in her always steamy Ice Kings series Stacey Lynn brings us Jason Taylor and Tessa Chauncy’s story and it’s delightful! Easy to love characters, spot on chemistry and enough laughs and heartfelt moments to draw you in and hold you tight. I’m so looking forward to more in the series!

Tessa is attention grabbing from the start. She’s self-assured and independent, but when her world starts crumbling she’s quick to seek the comfort of family. Her crush on Jason is finally being rewarded … and it’s awesome!

Jason is all the feels and more! He’s brash and sweet all rolled into one and I adored him. Watching him comfort Tessa and finally decide to put all of his feelings out there is magical.

I highly recommend this book as well as the entire series to anyone who enjoys a good hockey romance filled with a close group of guys and the women who love them. Always guaranteed to be filled with laughs, heart and lots of heat!

Excerpt:

I scoop more chicken onto a folded chunk of naan and moan as I savor the taste. There are some decent restaurants where I live, all within walking distance, which is a bonus, but none are as good as Tandor’s. I can’t even piece together what makes it so delicious but it’s mouth-watering amazing.

“Jesus, Tessa. Can you not sound like you’re having an orgasm when you eat?”

I choke on my chicken and wash it down with my water. “Don’t like it, you can leave.”

“But then I won’t be able to share with you why I’m here.”

The chicken I’ve devoured rolls in my stomach. Obviously it’s not because he’s a nice guy. I lean back in my chair. “What is it?”

He huffs a laugh and I hate he looks so damn good, smirking at me, shaking his head like I’m some amusing little thing.

“You’re cute, Tessa. I ever tell you that?”

“I think the day you took me to get stitches in my head, yeah. You bopped me on the nose with a finger and said ‘cute and tough, nice’ before ignoring me the rest of the weekend.”

I’m mortified with myself. He’s not supposed to know these things, know how much I remember every.single.encounter with him ever.

His mouth opens a bit and he stares at me. Yeah. That dose of word vomit probably surprises the hell out of him too. But hell, in for a penny. He says he doesn’t give a shit about what Sawyer thinks? He should know what I think.

“I’m pretty sure that’s the day I started having a crush on you.”

He doesn’t take his eyes off me as he chews on what I think is chicken tikki masala. Slowly, he swallows and sets his own fork down. Leaning forward, elbows on the table, I’m tempted to drop my gaze to his mouth and watch his full lips move so sexily as he opens his mouth and asks, “Want to know when it started for me? When I started facing the reality that it was my best friend’s little sister that made my dick hard in my dreams at night and when I was on the road?”

I never meant to say a word, not one single word.

But I did.

Now because of something I leaked—without even realizing it—I've inadvertently broken up one of the Ice Knights’ most legendary bromances. And worse—I've kicked hockey star Ian Petrov's grumpy level to insane levels of grump.

And what could make it worse? How about the two of us being trapped together in a remote cabin after a massive blizzard. Neither of us can leave. Just us, the snow, his resentment, and OMG sexual tension so thick it would take a snowplow to break through it.

I’ve got to get out of here before I do something even dumber than I’ve already done and kiss the sexy with his misplaced anger and perfect pecs. That would be the worst, the absolute worst. But… would it be terrible if we gave in? Just a little? It’s not like we’re ever going to have to spend time together again.

Until the next morning when we’re told we have to play chummy for the press until this news cycle blows over. F.M.L.

 

Utterly delightful! With the third book in her always entertaining Ice Knights series Avery Flynn delights us all with Ian Petrov’s story. This grumpy hockey player is yummylicious and growls in all the right places, but he might have just met his match in tough girl Shelby Blanton!

Ian is a lot of fun to read. He is mad at the world when a major secret is uncovered that tears apart the best part of his days in hockey. He’s mad at the world and he’s especially mad at his jerk of a father, bonehead of a former best friend and the chatty cathy who told the world things he didn’t even know about his life!

Shelby is tough girl gold! She is at a good place in her life for a change and just wants this new job with the Ice Knights to go her way when it all starts to unravel in the blink of an eye … simply by accident! She’s got to find a way to make this right … before she starts falling for this grumpy gus of a hockey stud!

I highly recommend this book and the entire series to anyone who likes a whole lot of snarky sass to make you laugh out loud on a regular basis with your hockey romance. The characters are loads of fun and the story line always fast paced and interesting. I’m really enjoying this team!

four-half-stars

What do a cocky biker and a businesswoman who has sworn off dating bad boys have in common? According to Chloe Mallery, not much.

Justin came into the Wicked family after a harsh upbringing by a thieving father. He’s gone through a lot to become a true Wicked, and he’s made them proud. Now he’s ready to show the woman he loves exactly what type of man he is. But Chloe has worked hard to move past her difficult upbringing, and she’s wary of getting involved with a man who looks like he’s walked right out of it. When tragedy strikes, will their trying pasts draw them together, or will Justin’s protective nature be too much for Chloe’s independent heart to accept?

 

Delectably sinful! With the first book in her latest spin-off series The Wickeds: Dark Knights at Bayside Melissa Foster brings us the man we’ve all been waiting for in A LITTLE BIT WICKED. Justin Wicked has been simmering in all of our Bayside fantasies for years now and it’s finally time that he lays it all on the line for Chloe Mallery. I adored them as a couple and am so looking forward to this series! While I loved them getting together and finding their way, I felt like their story was almost too overwhelmingly sappy. There were too many characters woven into one story which made it long and left the space for the turmoil and strife needed to accurately test their relationship feel a bit like a side spot. I was left wanting a bit more drama and less distraction, but they rocked that happily ever after.

Justin is a dream. He lost a bit of the alpha bad boy side in the telling of his story, but the emotional depth he portrayed was spot on.

Chloe is easy to like even if she does let her past rule her life a bit too much. She quickly realizes how much she’s been misjudging Justin and becomes present in the making of their relationship.

I highly recommend this book to anyone who enjoys an emotional story line that is heavy in family and friendship. You really can never go wrong with a Melissa Foster book if you’re looking for love, friendship and a whole lot of heart!

 

 

 

 

 

A LITTLE BIT WICKED
The Wickeds: Dark Knights at Bayside
Melissa Foster
Releasing June 17, 2020
World Literary Press

Set on the sandy shores of Cape Cod, the Wickeds feature fiercely protective heroes, strong heroines, and unbreakable family bonds. If you think bikers are all the same, you haven’t met the Dark Knights. The Dark Knights are a motorcycle club, not a gang. Their members stick together like family and will stop at nothing to keep their communities safe. Their stories are told in the same loving, passionate voice readers have come to adore in Melissa’s other series. Some of the Wickeds’ love stories will be hilariously fun and deeply emotional, others will tear at your heartstrings and include injections of humor, but they will all leave you wishing you could climb between the pages and join them!

When the Dark Knights at Bayside and the cast of Bayside Summers collide, sparks fly, and trouble—or maybe love—is not far behind.

What do a cocky biker and a businesswoman who has sworn off dating bad boys have in common? According to Chloe Mallery, not much.

Justin came into the Wicked family after a harsh upbringing by a thieving father. He’s gone through a lot to become a true Wicked, and he’s made them proud. Now he’s ready to show the woman he loves exactly what type of man he is.
