Unexpectedly pregnant…

Scandalously wed!

Fleeing her very public divorce, socialite Vienna is shocked to find her private hideaway already occupied. Gruff and brooding Jasper was presumed dead—just like Vienna’s love life. So her instant connection to him is unexpected, yet completely undeniable…

One night is all Jasper can offer Vienna. The people closest to him always get hurt. Then scandal strikes, forcing them to fly to Chile as a couple for the whole world to see! But when Jasper learns Vienna is carrying his baby, he must take things one step further to protect them both…with his diamond ring!


Passionate and endearing! With the final book in her Four Weddings and a Baby series Dani Collins is bringing two familiar faces to the forefront when Hunter’s sister Vienna meets her match in Amelia’s brother Jasper. The characters were quick to catch my attention and the drama surrounding them held my attention throughout. I loved getting to see little pop ins from the previous couples in the series as well. Great ending to a satisfying series.

Vienna is a captivating character. She has big dreams and let them be cast aside by life and inappropriate choices for too long, so she’s finally putting an end to it and steering her life back on course.

Jasper is easy enough to like and quick to catch the reader’s eye as the story of his recent past comes to life and continues to unravel.

I highly recommend this book as well as the entire series to anyone that likes a whole lot of drama mixed in with your romance. True love wins, but there are lots of curves getting them there.

I may be a bodyguard, but I can't protect my heart from her.

She's fire and ice. She's emotional and yet logical. She's beautiful and sexy. She's everything I have ever wanted. But she's not mine. Not anymore. Lucia and I blew up a few months ago after she almost died in a racing crash, and I carelessly told her something about herself she didn't know.

I stopped working for her sister, got a new job, and let her live without me. That's what she wanted. We were supposed to be a casual fling, but apparently, my heart didn't read the fine print. Now she's traveling the world in her first F1 season, and I'm guarding an annoyingly self-absorbed pop star.

Until I get a frantic call from her Dad telling me someone is stalking Lucia. He wants to hire me back, and whether she wants me in her life or not, I'm taking the job. I can handle her better than anyone. And when she decides to let me handle her again — in all the ways I used to — I can't say no. Even if it means she speeds off with my heart yet again.


Explosive and heartfelt! The second book in Victoria Denault’s Racing Hearts series quickly brings drama and passion to life as Frankie’s little sister Lucia gets her chance in the spotlight. The characters are easy to become invested in, the setting is action packed and exhilarating and the family drama adds an interesting dimension.

Nick is my very favorite. He’s such a nice guy with a kind heart and he gets the raw end of the stick when it comes to Lucia for a good bit of the book, but I adored him and his good nature.

Lucia is setting out to knock down the standards of auto racing being a men’s sport and her determination is admirable, as is her get up and go attitude when it comes to life … I had to dislike her and how she treated Nick some though. Overall I like her and loved their final outcome, but she was a bit much sometimes.

I highly recommend this book as well as the first book in the series to anyone that enjoys sports romance and high intensity drama and passion all rolled into one great read!

I’m the new guy on the team, and I’m struggling to earn my teammates’ respect and forgiveness for the dirt I’ve slung at the Sockeyes in the past.

I played my entire life with my twin brother by my side, even in the pros. Now I’ve been traded to the Sockeyes, and my brother has been selected in the expansion draft by the Portland Icehawks.

I’m facing the unthinkable, competing against my brother in a game where only one of us emerges as the ultimate winner. And that’s not my only problem. I’ve developed a huge crush on one of my teammates’ sisters, and he’s not taking kindly to my interest in her, especially since he and I have butted heads in the past.

She’s not interested in me, but I’m not able to walk away. There’s something special about her, and I have to find a way to convince her that there’s also something special about me, even if her brother hates my guts.


Action packed and filled with passion, heart and just enough strife to keep us on our toes until the end! The ninth book in The Scoring Series hockey series by Jami Davenport brings a familiar family to the forefront again when Jason Wilder’s little sister moves to town and sparks fly with the new trade that the team isn’t excited to see. The tension is high and the characters are fun to get to know. I wanted a bit more interaction with his fam, especially the twin that owns his heart … but overall I loved their story and await more steamy goodness to come in this great series.

Banks is at a turning point in his life when he gets an unexpected trade and has to play without his twin by his side for the first time in his life. He’s a sincere guy and wears his heart on his sleeve when it comes to his bro. Watching him fall in love was heartwarming.

Jessie is accomplished and determined to succeed where no woman has before so she’s quite the inspiration. Her attachment to the ex that broke her heart grounds her a bit and makes us dislike her just a smidge, but overall she’s a great match for Banks and fun to get to know.

I highly recommend this book as well as the entire series to anyone that enjoys hockey romance revolving around a great group of guys who have each other’s backs and share in each others joy as love finds one after another.

All the rules change once the lights go out…

Up-and-coming plus-size model Mila Hale couldn’t chance another scandal ruining her newest job. That means keeping her eyes and hands off billionaire playboy—and her potential boss—Cruz Westbrook. Until a storm traps Mila and Cruz at his palatial estate. Now all bets are off. Their chemistry ignites into a whirlwind fling…but what will they do once the lights come back on?


Flirty and exhilarating! Book two of the Business and Babies duet by Jules Bennett brings us the story of Zane’s twin brother Cruz. The characters are relatable and easy to like and their chemistry is instantly off the charts hot. I enjoyed watching them overcome their hang-ups and obstacles to become a match.

Mila is a refreshing character. She knows what she’s dealt with in life has skewed her outlook, so she goes above and beyond to make sure she never settles for less than she deserves.

Cruz is successful and kind-hearted, but watching him grow into the man that can let his partner prosper without his interference is very satisfying.

I highly recommend this book as well as the first in the duet to anyone that enjoys a rich playboy who changes his ways and quickly hands over his heart when he meets “the one”.
