Miller

They called me the pretty boy on and off the ice. Hockey’s most eligible bachelor.

When my teammate asked me to donate one date to his charity, I figured why not. Worst case, I’d spend the night with a fan. Best-case scenario, she would be hot. What I wasn’t expecting was for my dream girl to be the highest bidder.

For years, she brushed me off, and now, I finally had a chance to take her out and show her who I really was.

With only one shot at this, I really hoped I didn’t mess it up.

Layla

At the top of my career, I was riding the wave of my sports talk show having the best rating on the radio.

I also made it a rule to never date any sports players.

It was my one rule, and I was sticking to it until I bid on the only man who gets under my skin.

All it takes is one touch, one night, one kiss, and only one chance.

 

Swoon-worthy romance! The ultimate hockey hook-up has been a longtime coming as he’s lusted after her for years while she’s openly hated his guts. The tables are finally turning in his direction as she starts letting him knock down the walls she erected long ago and OMG, it’s worthy of all the feels! I am so loving this series and cannot wait for more!

Miller is hot personified and you have to simply love him! He’s unapologetic for the life he leads and it’s kind of a breath of fresh air really. I loved how much he fell for her.

Layla is a powerhouse and watching her figure out that he might not be the guy she thought he was anymore is mega special.

I highly recommend this book and the entire series to anyone who loves a hockey romance that’s strong in game and in love as one player after another shows their warm heart and decadent moves to their special lady.

Bossy, protective bad boy biker Mammoth Saint always thought he’d be a member of the Disciples MC…until he laid eyes on her.
Tamara Gallo has always been headstrong, sassy, and never afraid to speak her mind, even when it comes to her hottie biker boyfriend and his brothers in the MC.

But when Mammoth’s ready to sever ties from the club for good, choosing love over the brotherhood, until someone from his past shows up and needs his protection, threatening his freedom along with their future.

♥ Happily Ever After—YES!
♥ Swoon-Worthy—Heck, YEAH!
♥ NO Cliffhanger

If you love a loyal biker, a strong heroine, steamy swoony romance, and witty laugh-out-loud banter…this book is for you!

Ignite is the fifth book in the USA Today bestselling Men of Inked™ Heatwave series.

 

Just the right amount of steam and sweetness to satisfy! With book five in her always irresistible Men of Inked: Heatwave series Chelle Bliss brings us Mammoth’s story, and it warms our heart! The characters had our attention from page one and as drama rose and tempers flared it only intrigued us more. I felt a little weakness in explanation of who each character was and background to make it a true standalone, but I enjoyed it a lot nonetheless. Looking forward to the next book already!

Mammoth is a dream. He’s hot, he’s bossy and he has such a caring heart. He’s being pulled in two ways a bit and when his past walks in the door it only adds another layer of not knowing which way to turn into the picture, but he’s determined to start a new chapter with the love of his life.

Tamara is a great character. She knows her mind and her spirit and doesn’t hesitate to speak up for what she wants, but she’s supportive regardless of the situation. I enjoyed seeing her in action with her family and watching them grow to accept Mammoth as the one.

I highly recommend this book and the entire series to anyone who loves a dramatic story that always includes a close knit group of family and friends who love hard as they support one another in finding their forever.

Going from a professional baseball player to a SWAT officer should’ve been seamless. Should have been.

But it wasn’t.

All it took was one single calendar shoot for word to spread that Nathan Cox was not only no longer playing professional baseball, but he was also the man behind saving the life of Reggie Morton, the City of Kilgore’s princess.
***
Reggie didn’t know that by agreeing to provide the expertise and the know-how for the Police Officer’s Ball that she would be required to actually attend the function.

What she also didn’t expect was needing to be saved—again—by the same man that had saved her life a year ago when she hosted her debut event.

This time in a not-nearly-as-spectacular way. The moment she falls into his arms like a modern-day Cinderella and takes him in in all his three-piece suited glory, she realizes that she’s been fighting the impossible.

Nathan Cox owns her. Body and soul.

 

Delectably sinful and smokin’ hot! Lani Lynn Vale comes up with some wicked story lines that you would think just wouldn’t be able to work … but she does it beautifully! Her writing is unique and creative and the best thing about all of her books that I’ve read is the absolute heart that you feel in each and every one. With book ten in her KPD SWAT Generation 2.0 series she does not disappoint yet again. OFFICIALLY OVER IT is full of drama, sass and a tight knit group of friends and family. Looking forward to more in the series!

Nathan Cox is a dream. He’s hot, he’s self-confident and he’s a truly nice guy. He has his own reasons for walking away from a pro baseball career to become a SWAT officer and if people don’t like it, too bad. Just when he thinks things are starting to mellow out, his whole world goes topsy turvy, and he’s not hating certain aspects of it!

Reggie Morton is adorable. She’s a NICU nurse and part time event planner and is a spitfire full of sass and gumption. She’s always had Nathan’s back even when they fought like cats and dogs as kids, but she never expected to be tried this hard in supporting him.

I highly recommend this book as well as the entire series to anyone who loves a drama filled romance filled with alpha cops, the feisty women who loves them and more heart than you know what to do with.

Recovering drug addict Quincy Gritt has fought his demons. He’s confessed to his crimes and conquered his addictions. He’s finally ready to go after sweet, sexy Roni, the gorgeous brunette who won a date with him in a charity auction five months ago and has been putting him off, and driving him wild, ever since.

Dancer Veronica “Roni” Wescott worked hard to escape the seedy area where she was raised and followed her dreams to Julliard, only to have them shattered in the blink of an eye. She fought hard and regained her footing, but then the rug was pulled out from under her again when the grandmother who raised her passed away, leaving Roni feeling adrift in a world she knows very little about outside of dance. And then there's Charlie Hunnam–lookalike Quincy Gritt—the man whose late-night texts pulled her through her grief and have been setting her heart aflutter for months

Quincy pulls out all the stops, determined to prove that their friendship is only the beginning of what’s destined to be so much more. Romantic nights lead to smoldering passion and a deep connection too strong to be denied. But when Quincy’s past comes back to haunt him, can he and Roni accept their new gritty truth, or will Quincy spiral back into the darkness and lose the future he fought so hard to have?

 

A gut-wrenching story of survival! Melissa Foster’s writing voice shines in book seven of her The Whiskeys: Dark Knights at Peaceful Harbor series as she rips a piece of her reader’s heart apart and then slowly sews it back together again. In THE GRITTY TRUTH we are quickly hooked on Quincy and Roni and waiting with baited breath for them to connect and live happily ever after, but life has another idea in store for them and they are going to be tested like no other before walking into the sunset together. The characters are well developed and awe inspiring, the supporting cast is full of love, laughs and emotion and the happily ever after is breathtaking. I can’t wait for more in the series!

Quincy is such a sweetheart! He’s been through so much with his mom, his addiction and his guilt yet he’s come out of the other side as such a loving young man. He’s easy to sympathize with and easy to love.

Roni tugs at our heartstrings. She was on top of the world when a freak accident stole her future and she fought hard to come back from it. Now she’s again floundering with the loss of her person, Gram. Quincy and his friendship and spirit helped put her back together again and now it’s time for their relationship to shine.

I highly recommend this book and the entire series to anyone who loves a tight knit family of sentimental tough guys who love hard. The stories are always highly emotional, humorous and full of so much heart.

A slow burn, second-chance rom com!

She broke his heart ten years ago.

Now he's back -- and her new boss.

And she might still be semi in love with him.

But that’s no problem, right? They can keep it professional.

Until her grandmother gets involved.

She’s thrilled to think that Whitney and Cam are still in love. And invites him to move in with her…and Whitney.

Of course, Whitney can handle that too. Yeah, everything is fine. Just fine.

Until Cam makes it clear that he’s all in.

Having him back is very sweet, but can she really have it all? Or will it all crumble around her?

  A reunion of first loves, a cast of close friends/family and sweets galore … what more could you ask for in a romance? With the fourth book in her always scintillating Hot Cakes series Erin Nicholas brings together two power players for the reunion we’ve all been waiting for in SEMI-SWEET ON YOU. It was definitely a slow burn reunion, but the connections between friends and family throughout held a reader’s attention easily. Looking forward to more in the series!

Camden McCaffery is a really down-to-earth character in this book. He was more arrogant and sure of himself in previous stories, but being humbled by the opportunity to possible reunite with his only love is good for him. He shows us a softer side … and I loved it!

Whitney Lancaster is one of those characters that makes you want to reach into the pages and shake her once in awhile because she hesitates when all she’s ever dreamed of is right in front of her for the taking. It was heartwarming to watch her start to understand the dynamic of what true love can look like.

I recommend this book and the entire series to anyone who loves a steamy romance mixed with a sweet cast of friends, families and happily ever afters.

Excerpt:

He leaned in, close enough that she could feel his breath on her lips when he said, “Let me kiss you.”

Oh damn. She wanted that. She wanted it so much. She was weak.

“I—” she started.

“The tea is getting cold!” Didi bellowed from the kitchen.

Whitney and Cam stilled. Then she felt him sigh. But he didn’t pull back. “You going to let me do this or not?”

He was already practically kissing her. When his lips moved as he spoke, they brushed hers ever so lightly. His body heat surrounded her. She swore she could feel his heartbeat pounding. Or maybe that was hers.

They both clearly wanted this. She certainly wasn’t pushing him away or stepping back. But the only actual connection was his hand on her face. And their mingling breaths.

Clearly he was going to insist that she make this decision. He wasn’t going to just sweep her up and kiss the hell out of her before she could protest and then let the chemistry take over.

“Whit,” he said, his voice low and rough. “Push me back or pull me closer.”

She slid her hands up to his chest, not sure until the last moment if she was going to fist his shirt and pull him in or push him away.

Cam, however, didn’t look surprised when she pushed.

He let go and stepped back though. He didn’t seem angry or even frustrated. It seemed that he’d been expecting her reaction actually.

“Okay,” he finally said.

She wet her lips. “Thanks,” she said, hoarsely. And she meant it. She appreciated that he was giving her these choices. Kind of.

It would be a lot easier to just climb him like a tree and give in to everything zipping between them if he’d just back her up against the wall, seal his mouth over hers, and start running his big hands over her body. Then she could pretend she was just caught up in the moment and enjoy the hell out of it without actually admitting she wanted any of that.

Which he knew.

She could see it.

He knew that she wanted him, but that she didn’t want to admit it.

So, of course, he was going to make her confess before he did anything more.

“In case you’ve forgotten, I’m very stubborn,” he said.

Whitney gave him a nod. “I remember.”

“And something you should know about me and the past ten years,” he said, holding her gaze steadily, “I’ve also gotten very used to winning. “

That actually made her heart trip and her inner muscles clench.

See, she should really feel trepidation at that implied promise from him. But she didn’t.

“I’ll keep that in mind,” she said, trying desperately not to act excited about the idea of him trying again and again to get close to her.

He looked at her for a long moment and a thought flickered through her mind—he knows.

five-stars




Years ago, bestselling author Jack “Jock” Steele lost his girlfriend and baby in a horrific accident that drove a wedge between Jock and his family, keeping him from sharing a devastating secret. An aging philanthropist saved him from the brink of despair, and for a decade Jock cared for his ailing friend who became his family. Now his friend has passed away and left him a fortune—on the condition that he publishes another book. Jock is floundering, unsure how to rebuild the life he’d walked away from, much less find his muse, have another relationship with a woman, or even think about having a family of his own. But he can’t get his sweet, sexy new friend, single-mother Daphne Zablonski out of his head, and her adorable toddler must know something he doesn’t, because she wraps her tiny fingers around his heart and won’t let go.

Daphne has been through the wringer with her ex-husband and doesn’t believe true love is in the cards for her. Friends she can handle, but letting a man see her mom bod naked? Especially someone as strikingly handsome and unbelievably sexy as Jock? No, thank you. Besides, she has a toddler to chase after and enough fictional boyfriends to fill her lonely nights. If only her book boyfriends could make her body tingle the way one look from her mysterious neighbor does.

As Jock and Daphne’s friendship turns to something too tempting to deny, their lives take an unexpected turn. Can a man who has lost everything find redemption with a woman who has everything to lose? And then there’s that secret…

 

Melissa Foster is on fire with the kick off to her new Steeles at Silver Island series! In TEMPTED BY LOVE we quickly fall in love with Daphne’s little girl Hadley who has her heart set on making sure Jock is hers. The story line is emotional, the characters are endearing and the family and friends around them add so much depth to their story. I loved Silver Island and the Steeles and can’t wait for more from this family. What a ride!

Jack “Jock” Steele is a bit of a mystery at first, but it doesn’t take long before Daphne has unraveled his history and we feel so much for this guy who’s had it rough over the years. Watching him begin to heal and feel again is heartwarming.

Daphne Zablonski is a doll and quickly steps into the protective mother roll as she watches her little girl’s heart hurt as time and again Jock runs away from her. Watching him start to fall under her spell is so rewarding, and their passion for each other is off the charts HOT!

I highly recommend this book to anyone who loves an emotional, family and friend centric plot that adds another dimension to the steamy romance taking place as they fall in love.

Ralph

Being traded to Dallas was a dream come true. I had everything I wanted, my game had never been better, and my wife was due to have our baby any day now.

What could go wrong?
Everything.

I was now raising our baby on my own. After hockey practice and games, I didn't have time to sleep, let alone make sure my social media was up to par.

I never thought I'd get a second chance at love.

Candace

When my hotshot brother was drafted in the NHL, he didn't have time to do his social media, so I took over for him. Little did I know it would become my career.

My plate was full with over fifty NHL players, and I wasn't taking on any new clients.

Yet when he showed up on my doorstep with the cutest little girl in the whole world, I couldn't say no.

I was just helping, but it turned into more than that. He's the man I've been waiting for.

All it takes is one touch, one night, one chance, and only one kiss

 

Gut-wrenching emotion mixed with steaming hot chemistry makes for an awesome read! With the first book of a brand new Only One series Natasha Madison brings despair to life in ONLY ONE KISS and I loved it! We are entrenched into the story line from the very first page and who could put it down as train wreck meets a sunny day page after page? The hockey play was a bit light, but the team connection was there somewhat behind the scenes. I’m so looking forward to the next in the series!

Ralph Weber is so appealing. He’s an adorable father to this rosy cheeked baby girl who steals a readers heart time and time again throughout the book, and he’s mentally exhausted from all of the turmoil he has going on inside his head. Meeting Candace is a breath of fresh air.

Candace Richards is easy to like. She is strong and playful and even though she’s super busy she makes time to take Ralph on as a client because who could really resist him? When sparks become too hard to resist their world changes one day at a time.

I highly recommend this book to anyone who loves an intensely emotional sports romance that centers more on the relationship than the game.

Meet Natasha Madison 

 

 

When her nose isn’t buried in a book, or her fingers flying across a keyboard writing, she’s in the kitchen creating gourmet meals. 
 
You can find her, in four inch heels no less, in the car chauffeuring kids, or possibly with her husband scheduling his business trips. 
 
It’s a good thing her characters do what she says, because even her Labrador doesn’t listen to her…

BULL
I lost my wife on a rainy night almost two decades ago.
Since then, my heart has been a barren wasteland.
It only knows love for family and the club.
And for revenge.
Then I meet Taylor and I know I’m doomed.
Because she’s everything I didn’t know I wanted.
Everything I’ve denied myself for years.
But my club is about to storm headfirst into a war and I can’t afford the distraction.
Yet I can’t get her out of my head.
We both say we’re not interested.
But we are both liars.

TAYLOR
For years we’ve been running from my past.
My kid brother and me.
Hiding in the shadows.
Now we have a chance for a new life in a new town … far, far away from trouble.
I crave freedom and a quiet, simple life for us both.
The last thing I expect is to fall for the enigmatic biker king, Michael “Bull” Western.
He is magnificent.
White-hot and scorching.
With the touch of an angel and eyes of the devil.
He could be the love of my life.
But I have a secret.
A very big secret indeed …

 

Emotionally raw and oh so sexy! With book six in her always exhilarating Kings of Mayhem MC series Penny Dee brings us the man we’ve all been waiting for. From the moment we learned early in the series that MC President Bull had lost his wife and shut himself off from everything but the club, we knew he was going to be intense, and he did not disappoint.

Bull is eye-catching! He’s alpha and tough, but when he cares about someone, he’s all in and showing his heart easily. Hearing his story was heartbreaking, but watching him find love again was awe inspiring. I couldn’t have loved him more.

Taylor was really easy to like in the beginning and watching her fight her feelings for Bull had me pulling for them right from the start. When the twist in her life enters the story line, I lost a bit of my enjoyment in her, but she was redeemed somewhat.

I highly recommend this book as well as the entire series to anyone who enjoys a close-knit motorcycle club who will fight to the death for their family. Always addictive characters and their happily ever afters are intense.

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!
