Chicago Rebels hockey player Dex O'Malley has been a naughty boy . . . again.

Only his latest stunt isn’t quite like when he was caught with his pants down at a nightclub or was cited for drag-racing on Lake Shore Drive or even that time he said a few critical things about his teammates on a hockey podcast. Oops. This time, Dex is in real trouble, the kind that could get him kicked off the team and out of the league. And that cannot happen. Hockey is the only thing he’s ever been good at. The only thing he cares about. He’ll do whatever it takes to rehab his rep, even if it means cleaning up dog poop and suffering the steely-eyed disapproval of his new no-nonsense “boss” at the animal shelter, Ashley Adams.

Ashley has enough on her plate between her low-paying job, her high-maintenance family, and a love life she’s trying to resurrect after her divorce. She’s already mom to an amazing nine-year-old; the last thing she needs is to be stuck mothering a celebrity volunteer with more money than sense. But the troublemaking f-boy needs Ashley to sign off on his good deeds so he can get back to what he does best: lighting up lamps both on and off the ice. And while a guy like that could never interest her mind, it seems her body is not on the same page. Sure, Dex O’Malley is too young, too hot, too flighty for Ashley to take seriously, but a brief ride on the wild side might fit the bill …

Only that’s not enough for Dex. What happens when this notorious player decides the older, single mom is the hottest woman he’s ever met and that he wants to light her lamp . . . forever?

 

Bad boy Dex has met his match! The next book in Kate Meader’s much-loved Rookie Rebels hockey series brings a sweetness out in Dex that probably not many were expecting when he’s thrust into a setting with adorable animals and a precociously brilliant little girl. I loved every minute of Dex and Ashley’s story and look forward to more to come in the series as always. Great depth to the characters, a sincere and heartfelt side to the story in addition to the yummy sexcapades!

I highly recommend this book as well as the entire series to fans of hockey romance where the brotherhood of the team is a close knit family and they all rally around when another needs their support while finding their forever love.

Sasha Whiskey is done being the good girl. She’s ready to wrangle in the one man not looking to be caught and give him a taste of Whiskey. With any luck, one taste won’t be nearly enough. Come along for the steamy, emotional ride in this friends-to-lovers, forbidden romance.

Equine rehabilitation therapist Sasha Whiskey has everything she needs right there on Redemption Ranch—a job she’s passionate about, a loving family, and Ezra Moore, the sexy single father who went from trying to nail her as a belligerent teen to keeping his distance as a successful therapist and the person to whom she compares every other man. She’s done with comparisons. She wants the real thing. But going after what she wants means risking everything they’ve both worked so hard to achieve. If only dating co-workers weren’t forbidden.

 

Just the perfect amount of sweet and sizzle we’ve all been waiting for when it came to Sasha and Ezra! I’ve been loving this couple since adorable little Gus walked onto the pages early on with his love for his “Sugar” and I was NOT disappointed in their story. Lots of emotion, so much steamy goodness and more heart than you’ll know what to do with from them and their supporting cast of characters. Melissa Foster is always good for a heartfelt romance and loving families!

I highly recommend this book as well as the entire series to anyone who enjoys a close knit family who loves hard as they support one another through life, love and occasionally heartache. Great characters, lots of emotion and sizzling hot sex always guaranteed!

I don’t know who needs to hear this but take a day off from being the bigger person. Fuck some shit up.

Those words were said to him by a stranger in the airport. And from that moment on, he’s only had eyes for her.

Too bad they met when she was taking off for three months to parts unknown. Otherwise, Keene Day—yes, that was really his godforsaken name—would’ve tried a little harder to get her info.

Lucky for him, fate takes pity on him.

They meet over and over again in the airport. First in the security line, then at the terminal where they’re both on the same plane. Finally, after a few delayed flights, an emergency landing, and a six-hour road trip, he finally pulls his head out of his ass long enough to get her info.

And over the next few weeks, they talk over the phone and get to know each other.

But fate is funny.

Just as easily as it can bring you to a person, it can tear them away, too.

And Ande Carter’s life is about to take a turn for the worse.

But Keene is there for it all. The good, bad, and ugly.

Whether she wants him there or not.

 

Attention grabbing, gritty goodness! With the final book in her Welcome to the Circus series, Vale saved the best for last and delivers on a satisfying reconnection with all of the sisters as Keene finds his forever. I’m sad to see them go, but delighted in Keene’s sexy happily-ever-after! Great characters, addictive drama and such a pleasure to meet Ande’s brothers who are taking center stage in LLV’s next series The Carters! I can’t wait!

Keene has been a favorite character of mine throughout all of the circus angst, and I’m so happy in who he wound up sharing his life with. Ande is good people and I really enjoyed her close-knit fam.

I highly recommend this book as well as the entire series to anyone who loves a dramatic family as the back drop of a romance series where you never know what’s going to happen every time you turn around. Great suspense and so much love and heart throughout this entire series!
