Bones (Rebel Wayfarers MC, #10) by MariaLisa deMora

Raised in a hellhole echoing with the sounds of conflict, Bones most profound childhood memory is of the day he died. Decades later, he has built an empire where he is king. His brothers have his back, and life is good. So good, he doesn’t realize what’s missing until he meets her. Ester seems to be the one woman capable of looking beyond his mask and seeing … him.

Full description:

Salvador Ramos’ world was upended the day before he turned twelve. The stick-thin son of a small-time drug king, his demand for justice fell on deaf ears, and the identity of his sister’s killer remained a mystery. From that day forwards, Sal vowed he would never forget how it felt to be powerless.

Now he’s ready to make good on that promise. Positioned as one of the dominant outlaws in Chicago, he deals from a place of strength and power, leveraging fear as a weapon. He is a leader among men, having honed loyalty through harsh lessons, and earned trusted friendships until none can stand against him. He is Bones.

Bones. A man who looks like a monster. Covered in tattoos, black and grey, with hardly any inch of skin left bare. A hundred different sigils and symbols on each arm, ink crawled up his neck like the collar of a closely fitted shirt. Black and colored ropes of pictures disappeared underneath his shirt. Strong hands, with muscles that danced beneath the images as he moved. Bones wore his skin like a shield, a barrier to hold at bay those who wouldn’t put in the time to know who he is. Who didn’t care enough to learn about the man behind the bars written on his skin. The ink as isolating as any jail cell unless you held the key.

Ester has been on her own since she was ten. She spent much of that time on the run from her own fears, failing to escape from the demons in her mind. Her life on the fringe of society has given her a unique perspective on humanity, and a cautious but abiding curiosity about the nature of people. She sees pain and terror everywhere, except when she looks at him. Bones alone helps relieve the piercing agony of her thoughts.

He should be frightening to a woman like her. But he wasn’t. He isn’t.

Private Reserve by Cathryn Fox

Olivia was the best thing that ever happened to me. But she’s a good girl, and I have a side that is far too dark for a minister’s daughter. When she started talking about plans after graduation, the only thing I could do was run back to Italy—to protect her from me. But she’s back in my life, and I need a wife before I can take full ownership of our failing vineyard and hotel. Only problem is, I want her again. No way can I put my hands on her. One kiss, one taste, could unleash the side of me that would only scare her.

If she discovers my dark side, I don’t know if she’ll flee back to the states, or surrender to me. What she doesn’t know is she already owns me, and if she leaves, I’ll never be the same.

All the Frogs in Manhattan by Carrie Aarons

You know how Cinderella had the whole glass slipper, pumpkin carriage, fairy godmother thing?

Yeah…with foot-destroying stilettos, Uber, and a Twitter horoscope, my life is far from a happily ever after.

In fact, instead of Prince Charming, I end up dating every slimy, scaly, brainless frog in the kingdom of Manhattan. And by frog, I mean all of the stereotypical bad guys that Mom and Lifetime movies warned you about.

The meathead player.
The mommy’s boy.
The namedropper.
The cheapskate.

If they suck at relationships, I’ve probably kissed those cold, clammy lips in the hopes of finding love. Until one day, when one man with commitment issues offers to help me find the Romeo to my Juliet.

But what happens when the frog, who was never supposed to turn into a prince, kisses you at midnight? Ok fine, he propositioned me for some afternoon delight after brunch, but not everything can be straight out of a fairytale.

This battle of wills is about to go below the belt…

Willow Scott is sweet, innocent, and 100% untouchable. She’s the epitome of everything MMA fighter Regan “Rapscallion” Matthews has always wanted, but will never have. A woman like her deserves more than a scrapper from the wrong side of the tracks—the Scott’s charity case.

When Willow sees something she wants, she goes after it—damn the consequences—and her sights are set on him.

Willow has been in love with Regan Matthews since she was in pigtails and braces.

If Willow has her way that’s all about to change, and Regan must decide if he’s willing to risk losing his best friend and the Welterweight title for a woman he doesn’t deserve but cannot live without.

Running Mate by Katie Ashley

Barrett

The name’s Barrett Callahan. Yeah, that Barrett Callahan—the one the press dubbed “Bare” after those naked sexting pictures surfaced. At twenty-five, I was armed with an MBA from Harvard, an executive position at my father’s Fortune 500 company, a penthouse, and a different piece of delectable eye candy in my bed every weekend. I had a life most men dreamed of. But then my father decided to run for president, and my playboy lifestyle became a liability to his campaign that was built on family values. My “makeover” comes in the form of a fake fiancée who I don’t even get to choose–one who is an uptight, choirgirl acting priss but also sexy-as-hell.

Addison

My latest relationship had gone down in flames, and I was drowning in a sea of student loans when in true Godfather status, James Callahan made me an offer I couldn’t refuse. Seven figures for seven months on the campaign trail pretending to be the adoring fiancée of his son, Barrett. As soon as he won the election, our engagement would be dissolved amicably for the press, I was free to ride off into the sunset a million dollars richer, and because of the NDA, no one would be the wiser. Sure, I’d never met the guy, but I’d been a theater nerd in high school. I could pull off any role from Lady Macbeth to Maria Von Trapp. But that was before I met my fake fiancé—the infuriating, self-absorbed, egotistical, drop-dead-sexy King of the Manwhores.

The race will be a fight to the death finish, and that’s not even the actual campaign.

Dear Agony: A Novel by Georgia Cates

Dear Agony,
You’ve been my shadow, following me through childhood—filling my days and nights with terror and uncertainty. You cleverly disguised yourself as some form of pain or suffering as I grew into a young woman. We were unwavering companions … until I severed our ties.
I traded homelessness on the streets of New Orleans for a luxurious bed covered by the finest linens.
I traded dumpster diving for dinner in the finest restaurants.
I traded myself to a stranger—Bastien Pascal.
I have a good life within my platonic and mutually beneficial companionship with Bash.
He’s my friend. My mentor. My roommate.
Until everything changes.
I’m not supposed to get goosebumps when his hand brushes my skin.
I’m not supposed to be eager for his soothing touch following one of my nightmares.
I’m not supposed to think about what might happen if I reached out to him in the darkness.
Falling in love with him? Preposterous . . . unavoidable.
Agony, why are you back with a vengeance to rob me of this life I’ve come to love so dearly?
I’m finally happy. Don’t ruin this for me.
Always yours,
Rose

In this epic love story, Dear Agony forges a connection between an unlikely pair—a beautiful rose entwined in barbed wire and a shipwreck sinking into the darkest depths of the ocean. This agonizing romantic novel poses some gut-wrenching questions: What does a woman do when the man she loves is planning his own demise? And how far will she go to give him something to live for?

The Boxer (Modern Love #2) by Piper Rayne

“Who knew a bad boy could mend a broken heart?”

What does a girl do after she discovers her fiancé is a cheating bastard?

In my case, I performed the ritual implosion of all scorned women. I drowned my sorrows in cases of white wine, wallowed in gallons of ice cream, and ignited a bonfire to burn away every damn remnant of his existence. Six months later, the only result was a permanent impression of my ass on the couch.

Adventure Dating my friends dared.
A new and exciting opportunity they said.

I thought they were crazy, but I’m not one to back down from a challenge, so I signed up for the entire four-week deal.
That’s where I saw HIM. Lucas Cummings. He isn’t the classic rich boy I usually end up with. The one whose idea of working up a sweat is waiting for his margarita to be served beachside. Nope. He’s a rough and tough bad boy that all fathers warn their daughters about. You know the type. Cocky swagger, chiseled jaw—the ‘V’.

SOLD, I said to myself, until I discovered he was so much more than just a BOXER.

Left Hook.
Right to the heart.

This is a standalone book in The Modern Love World. You do not need to read book one, The Bartender, in order to read The Boxer.

Except me.

A chance encounter. One unforgettable night.
That’s all we could ever have. At least, that’s what we tell ourselves.

Fate has other plans.

If anyone found out, I would lose my job.
He could lose his scholarship.
Some things are worth the risk.

Sometimes, you have to cross your fingers,
Roll the dice, and hope lady luck is on your side.

Princess Emma Reviews: Mr. Rebound by Kat T. Masen

Princess Emma Reviews: Mr. Rebound by Kat T. MasenMr. Rebound by Kat T. Masen
on October 30th 2016
Goodreads
4.5 Stars

Moving across the country was supposed to be a fresh start. I’d made mistakes, but I told myself I’d no longer prey on emotionally unstable women. I don’t do relationships—I’m a selfish bastard that enjoys not answering to anyone—and relationships mean being with only one woman. More often than not, one that carries emotional baggage, like cheating exes or worse—kids.
After landing myself in trouble, again, my cousin Charlie dared me to settle down with one woman. I’m not one to shy away from a dare, so I chose Scarlett Winters, the most wanted actress in Hollywood. The sexiest woman on Earth.I just needed to get past the roadblock—her assistant, Morgan Bentley.
The wicked bitch of the west.
Between her multiple personalities and the giant stick up her ass, I should’ve seen it coming. I’d been with enough women to read the signs. Morgan Bentley was after one thing, and one thing only. A rebound.
That’s me, right?
Mr Rebound.
But what if this time I wanted more?

Also by this author: #Jerk, Roomie Wars

4.5 Crowns

Mr. Rebound is a standalone romantic comedy, although fans of this author will recognise the secondary characters that pop up throughout.

Noah Mason is a predator. Nowhere near to settling down and dealing with the emotions of a relationship, he preys on women looking for a rebound. It has really worked for him and he is never short of a woman to warm his bed, a closet or club restroom. Until he chooses the wrong woman and finds himself flying across the country to start afresh. His Cousin Charlie is well aware of his reputation and is determined to challenge him to change his ways after another near miss that could have had him moving on once again. So to put her off the scent he chooses Scarlett Winters, Hollywood leading lady, and someone so far out of his league that it is bound to get Charlie off his back and his happily relationship free. What he doesn’t expect is to suddenly find himself working alongside her. Even more unexpected is the gorgeous Morgan Bentley, Scarlett’s assistant. As beautiful as she is, she makes his life hell. She is one woman that won’t fall for the infamous Noah charm. But you know what they say, treat them mean to keep them keen. Noah soon finds himself in unchartered waters, but will Mr. Rebound meet his match? Or will he find himself doing what he does best?

I absolutely LOVED this book. One thing Kat T. Masen does well is comedy, and believe me this book will have you roaring. Told pretty much exclusively by Noah, the narrative is spot on. Is he a user, well abso-blody-lutley, but he feels he is providing a service… until it all goes wrong for him. It is the wake-up call he needs and he is determined to choose another path; although not the relationship path I might add. Reading about his thoughts and where they lead him was entertaining, light-hearted and I couldn’t help falling in love with him.

In Bentley Morgan he meets his match, but this isn’t a formulaic, disposable love story. It might be light-hearted and fun, but Bentley Morgan has issues that they must both overcome if he is to become more than just Mr. Rebound. And that is probably what I love most about this book. It would be so easy to churn out a funny rom com, light on storyline and for want of a better word generic, but by adding another layer of story, this has turned Mr. Rebound into a delicious story that you will devour like I did.

Shout out to the secondary characters. If you are a Kat fan you will adore it. Charlie, Lex and Kate from The Dark Love series are here, as are Presley and Haden from #Jerk. It was like spending time with old friends and it enriched the book all the more for it.

A great, hilariously funny read and one that I highly recommend. If you have yet to dive into any books by Kat. T. Masen then what are you waiting for. A great author, with a gift for writing love stories with gripping and often humorous storylines. Another great book Kat, can’t wait for the next. (Kate… PLEASE)

5 Stars

From New York Times bestselling author, Samantha Towle, comes a new standalone romantic comedy.
Vaughn West, Hollywood heartthrob, has been at the top of his game for years. He thinks he’s untouchable—until a betrayal brings him spiraling down. Now, everyone pities him, and if there’s one thing Vaughn hates, it’s pity.
After a few months of working his way through every available actress, pop star, model, and waitress in California, Vaughn needs to get his life back on track and focus on what he does best—making hit movies.
Charlotte Michaels is in love. Just not with one person. Louis Vuitton…Christian Dior…Valentino…Gucci…And the list goes on.
Sadly, Charly’s limited bank account doesn’t allow her those luxuries, and the closest she gets are lucky finds in charity shops and working closely with some of those names in her job as a wardrobe assistant.
Now, Charly has landed the mother of all jobs—working on the new Vaughn West movie. Excited doesn’t even cut it.
Only things don’t go as planned, and it turns out that Vaughn is actually a jerk. A hot jerk, but a jerk nonetheless.
So, why do their clothes keep falling off whenever they’re around each other? And why can’t Charly keep her mind in the closet and off Vaughn?
Getting mixed up with a smart-mouthed, fashion-obsessed wardrobe assistant is the last thing Vaughn needs.
Getting mixed up with an arrogant, self-centered, obnoxious, jumped-up actor who has a lack of respect for fashion is the last thing Charly needs.
Things are about to get hot, dirty, and messy in Hollywood. Very messy. Especially if Charly’s closely guarded secret falls out of her closet.

It all started with a twerk, a precariously misplaced pin and a cock warmer…

And ended with me hugging my kindle in glee because not only is this romantic comedy a jovial, fun and sexy read but it was the perfect lighthearted escapism that I never knew I was craving until now.

I’m a sucker for Hollywood romances and yes, I’ve read a few but Wardrobe Malfunction by far is now one of my absolute favourites.

Vaughn and Charly’s story is a laugh a minute but it has so much heart and honesty that you cannot help but fall in love with them in equal measure. Yes, our hero is gorgeous, witty and highly amusing but it was Charly who I admired as she held her own admirably given her position and I do love a strong heroine who isn’t afraid to take a gamble on Hollywood’s golden boy.

I don’t want to go into a story overview because this is one you have to just delve in and enjoy for yourself as you travel from New York, to Vegas to Oregon and back. Charly and Vaughn’s journey is a pleasureable, fun and lighthearted read that will put a smile on your face and another notch on the romcom favourite list.

Samantha Towle does it again!

5 shiny pins.

From New York Times bestselling author Molly McAdams comes a powerhouse romantic suspense that will have you questioning your morals and second guessing your view on love.

I live in a world few know exist. I’ve trained for this. I know what to say, what to do, and how to act. I’ve perfected the lethal calm required for this life.
Now it’s time to buy my first girl. But all it takes is one look at the brave girl who starts singing mid-auction for that calm to slip.

We’re a battle of the brightest day and the darkest night—and I want to lie in the wake of our war.

Sweet Rivalry (1001 Dark Nights) by K. Bromberg

Ryder Rodgers had a plan.

He was going to stride into the conference room, do the required song and dance over the next five days, and win the biggest contract of his career. But when he walked in and heard the voice of one of his competitors, all his plans were shot to hell.

Harper Denton. She was always on top. In college. First in their class. Always using every advantage to edge him out to win the coveted positions. The only one who could beat him. His academic rival. More like a constant thorn in his side. And his ego’s.

When he heard her voice, he was brought back to years before. To the bitter taste of being second best. But the woman who meets his gaze is nothing like the drab wallflower he used to know. Hell no. She was all woman now: curves, confidence, and staggering sex appeal. And no doubt, still brilliant.

The fact that she’s gorgeous and bright won’t distract him. This time, Ryder’s determined to be the one on top. But not if Harper can help it.

Bless Her Heart (Like A Lady Book 6) by S.J. Sawyer

He’s so hot. Like hotter than the Oklahoma sun in August sort of hot. Like steal your breath and scorch your panties kind of hot that will leave a good girl begging for anything.

It should be illegal to walk around without a shirt on, looking the way he does. His sculpted arms are sinful. His chest is just as sturdy, all hard planes and chiseled muscle. Dirty blonde hair and icy baby blues complete the package deal.

Lazy little rich boys shouldn’t have those sort of muscles everywhere. It’s a total lie. He’s never known a day of hard work in his life. Everything has been spoon fed to him since he was an infant, but apparently, no one told God.

It’s ridiculous. We couldn’t be more different, right?

I should not be attracted to Jake Roberson. ~Cassie

Life’s great when you’re a Roberson: new cars, the best of everything, and more chicks than you can possibly sleep your way through in a lifetime. It’s all so easy. But then a chance accident puts her right in my arms, throwing everything off course.

She is the most sheltered girl to ever walk the planet. She’s a total do-gooder, always working and volunteering for this or that. Forget being a teacher’s pet, she’s the town pet. Everyone loves her. We can’t possibly have anything in common, and since when do I even care what I have in common with a someone? I don’t.

And I damn sure don’t care about being good friends with a chick. Except…now, I do. I want to see her step down from her pedestal, let her wild curls go, and live. There is so much she hasn’t experienced but should. And I’m going to help her, as her friend.

But no matter how many times I tell myself to get my act together, no matter how often I swear I don’t want in those tight little shorts of hers, I can’t deny it any longer.

I should not be tempted by Cassie Hall. ~Jake

If You Were Mine by Melanie Harlow

Theo MacLeod wasn’t supposed to be the one.

Tall, dark and handsome suits me just fine, but the cocky grin, know-it-all attitude, and mammoth ego? No thanks. I only hired him so I wouldn’t have to sit at the singles table again. It was just pretend.

He wasn’t supposed to kiss me.

My heart wasn’t supposed to pound.

We weren’t supposed to spend the night together—the hottest night of my life.

One night turns into a snowed-in weekend away, and even the blizzard of the century can’t cool the fire between us. I can’t get enough—of his smile, of his body, of the way he makes me feel.

We’re nothing alike. He’s a daredevil, and I’m a nervous Nellie. He’s a drifter, and I want to put down roots. He’s an opportunist with a checkered past, and I’m a Girl Scout volunteer.

But none of it matters when I’m in his arms.

I know he’s made mistakes. I know his wounds are deep, and he doesn’t trust easily. I know he doesn’t believe he could ever be enough to make me happy, but he could.

All he has to do is stay.

Rebels like Us by Liz Reinhardt

“It’s not like I never thought about being mixed race. I guess it was just that, in Brooklyn, everyone was competing to be exotic or surprising. By comparison, I was boring, seriously. Really boring.”

Culture shock knocks city girl Agnes “Nes” Murphy-Pujols off-kilter when she’s transplanted mid–senior year from Brooklyn to a small Southern town after her mother’s relationship with a coworker self-destructs. On top of the move, Nes is nursing a broken heart and severe homesickness, so her plan is simple: keep her head down, graduate and get out. Too bad that flies out the window on day one, when she opens her smart mouth and pits herself against the school’s reigning belle and the principal.

Her rebellious streak attracts the attention of local golden boy Doyle Rahn, who teaches Nes the ropes at Ebenezer. As her friendship with Doyle sizzles into something more, Nes discovers the town she’s learning to like has an insidious undercurrent of racism. The color of her skin was never something she thought about in Brooklyn, but after a frightening traffic stop on an isolated road, Nes starts to see signs everywhere—including at her own high school where, she learns, they hold proms. Two of them. One black, one white.

Nes and Doyle band together with a ragtag team of classmates to plan an alternate prom. But when a lit cross is left burning in Nes’s yard, the alterna-prommers realize that bucking tradition comes at a price. Maybe, though, that makes taking a stand more important than anything.

Jude (The Saints #2) by Kathy Coopmans

Jude

I faked my way long enough by keeping my mouth shut, painting a fake smile on my face and focusing hard on my job.
I quit going out to find that random piece of ass.
Not a one of them would stand up to her anyway.
She hates me, loathes me even.
Little does Vivian Shepard know I’ve got more tricks up my sleeve than she will ever begin to imagine to get her to change her mind, to get my chance.
I’m not giving up.
I want her, and by God, I’ll fight as dirty as I can get to have her.
No matter what!

Vivian
Of course, I knew it was a one- night stand.
It’s was the perfect night before all hell broke loose to be quite honest.
Drinking, talking and flirting.
One I relished in as I tried to gravitate my mind back to solid ground after soaring so high I could feel the rush of flying.
My stomach dipped, my heart fluttered, and my toes curled inward and then I splattered to the hard surface of the ground.
Jude Westbrooke opened his big fat mouth.
He ruined it, ruined me, ruined it all.

Cole by Tijan

I shouldn’t have remembered him.
He was just a guy who walked through a restaurant. I didn’t know his name. We never made eye contact. There was no connection between us at all.
But I could feel him.
The tingle down my spine. The command in his presence. The snap of tension in the air around him. That was the first time I saw him, and I was captivated.
The second time was different.
He was in the mysterious back elevator of my apartment building. Our eyes met for a fleeting second before the doors closed, and I was staggered. My breath was robbed. My senses on high alert. My body hummed.
That was just the beginning.
He was the leader of the mafia. I was about to fall in love with him, and his name…

Rule #3: (Most importantly, and above all) Do not fall for Mr. Popular… 

Liam ‘Mr. Popular’ Carter will always be the closest thing to the “walking plague” in my eyes. His cockiness seeps through his every move, and no matter how many state championships he wins with the basketball team, he will forever be a “loss” to me.

Because he’s my older brother’s best friend, I’m forced to tolerate him, and he’s forced to tolerate me. In fact, unless my brother is around, we happily ignore each other every chance we get.

It wasn’t always this way, though…

Several summers ago, we both attended the same summer camp. A place we returned to year after year. We became friends–close friends, but right when I thought he could possibly turn into my everything, he made it clear that what we had was nothing. 

Now that’s he’s a senior, and I only have to deal with him for one more year, I’ve vowed to keep repeating the same set of rules to myself. Especially since he seems so hell-bent on wanting to talk to me for some reason, and especially since he seems to be staring at me every time we’re in the same room together…

Dark Protector by Celia Aaron (

From the moment I saw her through the window of her flower shop, something other than darkness took root inside me. Charlie shone like a beacon in a world that had long since lost any light. But she was never meant for me, a man that killed without remorse and collected bounties drenched in blood.
I thought staying away would keep her safe, would shield her from me. I was wrong. Danger followed in my wake like death at a slaughter house. I protected her from the threats that circled like black buzzards, kept her safe with kill after kill.
But everything comes with a price, especially second chances for a man like me.
Killing for her was easy. It was living for her that turned out to be the hard part.

Author’s Note: This is a full-length romance novel. It’s not a super-dark read, no trigger warning. Explicit violence and hot sex included. HEA, no cheating.

Something in the Way by Jessica Hawkins

An epic, three-book saga of forbidden love coming 2017.

It was a hot summer day when I met him on the construction site next to my parents’ house. Under the sweat and dirt, Manning Sutter was as handsome as the sun was bright. He was older, darker, experienced. I wore a smiley-face t-shirt and had never even been kissed. Yet we saw something in each other that would link us in ways that couldn’t be broken…no matter how hard we tried.

I loved Manning before I knew the meaning of the word. I was too young, he said. I would wait. Through all the carefully-chosen words hiding what we knew to be true, through his struggle to keep me innocent, and through infinitely-starry nights—I would wait. But I’d learn that life isn’t always fair. That no matter how much you achieve, none of it matters if you suffer the heartbreak that comes with falling for someone you can never have. Because even though I saw Manning first, that didn’t matter. My older sister saw him next.

Goodreads
Buy on Amazon
5 Stars

Every once in a while, you need to get away from it all.
I was a woman on the edge, shaken and shattered after a breakup that felt like it tore my entire world apart. My best friend, sick of watching me drown in misery and melancholy, harassed me until I agreed to go with her on a week-long wilderness retreat.
She promised days spent bonding and getting in touch with our inner bad-asses. It was supposed to be all about the two of us roughing it and making do with the bare minimum. She assured me we were going to be pushed to our limits in ways that were unimaginable. Neither one of us could have ever guessed just how right she was.
Nowhere in the glossy brochure did it say anything about the fact I was going to have to battle the insufferable but deliciously rugged and sexy trail guide instead of the elements. The brochure also forgot to mention the part that warned when you left civilization behind, there was no place to pack your inhibitions and fears.
I was told that I would be facing a week where the only thing I should expect was the unexpected. However, no one mentioned that I was going to have to fight for my life…and my heart as soon as I ventured into the unknown.
I was a pro at hiding from my feelings but when it came time to face a real threat, one that could change everything, I learned I was more of a no surrender, no retreat kind of girl.
Retreat is a standalone novel, the first in the Getaway series which centers on the hardheaded and brokenhearted Warner brothers and the women that dare to love them. These boys are very good at putting the wild in wilderness.

5 Crowns

Book 1 in The Getaway series, each book will be a standalone featuring the lives and loves of the Warner brothers. It is completely unrelated to any other series written by this author.

Leo is coming off the back of a really bad relationship. It has left her questioning everyone and everything in her life, but mostly it has left her questioning herself. Fed up of the pity party she is throwing, her best friend Emrys persuades her to go on a wilderness retreat, to get back to nature and to find herself away from the stresses of her life in San Francisco. So when they arrive in the mountains of Wyoming she expects to be greeted by some hot Cowboys; instead she is greeted by the Warner brothers, her hosts for the weeks.

So Cowboys, eh not quite. The Stetsons and chaps are definitely missing, but hot… hell yes. It’s just a shame that their customer care leaves a lot to be desired. Lane the youngest is the friendliest, but Sutton struggles to raise a smile and Cyrus the eldest, well he is just plain rude. If Leo didn’t think this week could get any tougher, having to deal with Cyrus may just finish her off.

So I am purposely stopping right there in my story overview. The synopsis Jay Crownover gives, although lengthy, doesn’t give too much away and man she is spot on in her decision to do that. I went in pretty much blind with this book, but clicked it because of my love for this author. I thought it would be a great romantic story between a city girl and a cowboy, and yes for all intents and purpose it is that. Retreat however is not your run of the mill cookie cutter romance, this book is sooooo good and so much freaking more. It throws a story at you totally out of leftfield. I so didn’t see it coming, and quite frankly I didn’t expect this book to be as bloody brilliant as it was.

So whilst I would usually talk about characters and my thoughts on them, I won’t for this book. I seriously don’t want to give you any spoilers whatsoever. What I will say is that each Warner brother has an interesting backstory and if each brothers story is as good as Cyrus’, then we the reader are in for a hell of a bumpy ride. Told from Leo’s POV, you might question whether this gives you everything you need from the book. Let me assure you it does. Jay has a quality in her writing that ensures that we get the full story without being overloaded with words, inner thoughts and story fillers. I actually think a dual POV would have been too much in the pace of the storyline. As she herself says, it is Leo’s journey into the Warner world. Again she is bang on the money in her thought process on this.

I am a huge Jay Crownover fan, and have been with her since Rule (still one of my top 10 reads EVER) I have loved the Marked Men series, am loving the Saints of Denver, whilst found the  Welcome to the Point series so so. This book, indeed this series is a complete departure from anything she has ever wrote before and I congratulate her on going off her usual path. By doing so she has created a book that is as totally unexpected as it is amazing. So if you aren’t sure, if the cowboy thing maybe isn’t your bag, all I can do is implore you to give it a chance; I can promise you won’t be disappointed.

 

A MUST READ start to a series that is nothing you would expect from this author. I now look forward to Sutton’s story; I have a feeling it will be just as epic as Retreat.

WARNING!This book will break your heart!
From the best-selling romance author of THE EDUCATION OF SEBASTIAN comes a sexy, heart-breaking and heart-warming story about one man and his dog. (Standalone)
Alex is lost and alone, with only his dog, Stan for company. He doesn’t expect kindness from anyone anymore, but sometimes hope can be found in the most unlikely places. He has a second chance at happiness, but there’s a dark side to Alex, and a reason that more than one person has called him crazy.
Single mother Dawn is doing just fine. Except that her ex- is a pain in the a**, her sister isn’t speaking to her, and her love life is on the endangered list.
At least her job as a veterinarian is going well. Until a crazy-looking guy arrives at her office accompanied by an aging dog with toothache. Or maybe Alex Winters isn’t so crazy after all, just … different.
Dawn realizes that she’s treated him the same way that all the gossips in town have treated her—people can be very cruel.

* Contains scenes of an adult nature. *

Also by this author: The Traveling Man (Traveling, #1), Dazzled, Slave to the Rhythm (The Rhythm #1), Slave to the Rhythm (The Rhythm #1), Dangerous to Know & Love

Another strong, beautifully executed love story by Jane Harvey-Berrick.

Even though this wasn’t my favourite book of hers, I thoroughly enjoyed the dynamics of Alex and Dawn’s story. It wasn’t rushed or even portrayed as being an easy, all consuming love story but one that teetered precariously with unsurety and caution.

The allure of an outsider hiding within the shadows calls to our heroine as she sees the best in what the gossiping small town locals regard as a strange lost cause.

Dawn is a vet and a single mother who is trying to make the best of a rather difficult situation. Estranged from her sister due to a past indiscretion which resulted in her daughter, Katie, Dawn has been the focus of local gossip more than she can count, so when a stranger enters the town and is shunned by the locals, she can’t help but be intrigued.

Alex is a recluse. Renovating an old log cabin in the woods, with only his best canine friend Stan for company, his severe stutter keeps others at a distance as his level of communication with strangers proves difficult.

When Stan requires a vet, Alex has no choice but to go into town and get him some help which is where our story starts as two guarded characters find a friendship and connection in one another.

There were times when I wanted Dawn to open up a little more and take a chance, but her guarded persona was justified in her circumstances. I did find it a little difficult to connect with her at times, she was all very normal.

I liked Alex, he had a dark air about him and it was fascinating to see him starting to fight that darkness and come out of his shell.

Katie was adorable and her energy gave good balance to the story. Her innocence and honesty was a breath of fresh air.

Stan is the man! I loved that mutt. He was a fundamental part of the story and even had his own voice in a chapter or two. It was fitting to the backdrop of the darker twist towards the end of the book and I commend Jane on touching on a despicable and upsetting subject. It was hard to read but I will never dismiss a raise of awareness. Very brave.

4 Crowns.

Daisies in the Outfield by Carolyn LaRoche

His lifelong dream turned into a haunting nightmare.

Jamie Williams had his chance but blew it. A series of very bad choices not only destroyed his major league baseball career but brought a dishonor his family refused to forget. Exiled to a small Cape Cod town, a distant relative took pity on him and got him into the local fire department. His love of the game remained though and drew him back to the field–not as a player, but as the head coach of the Falmouth Troopers. Falling for a girl from New York who thought baseball, the only real love of his life, was just a bunch of guys standing around picking daisies was so not in his game plan.
Her summer in Cape Cod was supposed to be a new start.

When Mandy Gilman happened upon the chance to take her paramedic skills to Cape Cod for the summer, she packed up and didn’t look back. Mandy needed a serious change–an escape from the heavy disappointment in her parents’ eyes and the prying pity in her friends’ comments. The Cape was the perfect opportunity to find herself again under the warmth of the sun and relaxing sea breeze. She even let her new roommate drag her to a couple of ball games. Baseball bored her but watching some hot guys run the bases was better than sitting around feeling sorry for herself. The incredibly sexy coach who seemed determined to make her fall in love with him and the game didn’t hurt…

Mandy has no intention of falling in love ever again, but Jamie has no plans to let her walk out of his life. He might have blown his past, but the feisty paramedic is his future. He has to convince her that a man who risks his life every day for strangers is worth risking his heart on. Can she let go of past heartache and let Jamie love her or will Mandy be the one left picking Daisies in the Outfield?

Finding Mr. Wrong by A.M. Madden

Here s a tip: never trust a jackass in preppy clothing.

The phrase trust me should have been my first clue to hightail it out the door, but hindsight is always 20/20.

So there I was, on a stage with two other men, being asked ridiculous questions by a woman I couldn t see, but whose voice made my pants tighten and not around my ankles.

Before I knew what was happening, I’d signed up for six weeks in paradise, isolated on an island for forty-two days with a complete stranger. And when I finally laid eyes on the sexy brunette who belonged to that voice, a part of me thought this wouldn t be so bad.

I ve always been a levelheaded guy. I am a successful, smart, and shrewd business man. But that was when I was listening to the head above my shoulders. Once the blood traveled south, I always ran into trouble.

She called me Mr. Wrong, and that was fine with me.
Lesson learned: lust always trumps logic.

Switch (Landry Family #3) by Adriana Locke

Mallory Sims is late for her first day of work.

After spilling her tea, she discovers she has no gas in her car. Add that her arm keeps sticking to her dress from syrup left on the console of her car, flustered feels like an understatement.

Then she sees her new boss.

Graham Landry is the epitome of NSFW in his custom-fit suit, black-rimmed glasses, and a look so stern her libido doesn’t stand a chance. Being flustered is just the start of her problems.

Her punctuality is only the start of his. With a pink slip in hand, he’s been waiting on his new secretary to show up only to let her go. Then she rushes in with her doe eyes and rambling excuses, smelling like bacon and lavender. The termination paper falls to the side as she falls in his arms.

This is a disaster in the making. Not because of his pinpoint exactness or her free spirit, but because when they’re together, the sparks that fly threaten to burn the whole place down.

Time's Up! (A Romantic Standalone) by Vicki Green

You’ve run out of time

What happens when your wealthy, pretentious Italian parents create a contract for you when you turned twenty-one and now a few years later you realize you only have nine months left to fulfill it.

The terms:
Must be married and pregnant by the age of twenty-five.

The catch:
It has to be true love.

All stipulated in the contract.

The problem:
Rica has no boyfriend.
She’s not easy.
She’ll be twenty-five in nine months.

What’s NOT in the contract:
Her parents forgot to mention he must be Italian.

Well, at least there’s a little hope. Very little hope.

Lost In Between (Finding Me Duet Book 1) by KL Kreig

We all have one.

A price.

That magic number that will get us to agree to do anything, be anything.

Don’t sit on your gold-plated high horse and say you don’t because you do. Everyone does. Each of us has something we covet enough that we’d sell ourselves to have it.

What’s my tipping point, you ask? Apparently a cool quarter mil will do the trick.

What does one do for 250 large, you wonder? Anything the infamous, gorgeous playboy of Seattle wants. For the next four months I’ll be Shaw Mercer’s arm candy, his beck and call girl, his faux girlfriend. I’ll be his to command, mold, push and pull in any direction he sees fit.

I’ll fight falling into bed with him. I’ll fight falling in love with him even harder. I’ll fail at both. And when my past and present collide in the most unexpected of ways, I’ll learn that while one man’s love for me has never died, the only man’s love I really want will never be mine.

*warning: 18+ only. Contains foul language, explicit sex and a hot alpha (or two, or three). NOTE: Book 1 in a duet. Conclusion in FOUND UNDERNEATH, out May 2017

#1 Crush (#1 Series #1) by T. Gephart

#1 Crush

Tia Monroe was smart, sassy and successful. Sure, she could get a little crazy at times—life around Tia was never boring—but that was part of her appeal. And while she didn’t see herself as ‘classically beautiful’, she had no shortage of options in the boyfriend department. She just hadn’t found one who held her interest.

Until she laid eyes on Eric Larsson, and then it was lust at first sight.

He packed the perfect mix of smoldering sexy and unapologetic cool into his blond-haired, blue-eyed, ridiculously hot six-foot-four frame. One smile from him was enough to twist her insides, making her girlie bits tingle in the most delicious way. But it wasn’t just his looks, he was smart and funny—charming in the most a-dork-able way.

The only problem was . . . Tia had never actually met him.

Eric Larsson was one of Hollywood’s hottest movie stars, rising to the top of his game and leaving a trail of disintegrated panties in his wake. Tia’s were no exception—but she wasn’t delusional. Love, marriage and happily-ever-after were not part of her fantasy; she just wanted to meet him. Just one time. One time. Confident that just seeing him in the flesh would get him out of her system.

So, with her resolve steeled, Tia set off on a quest to make it happen while avoiding her mug shot being splayed across the five o’clock news.

The journey no doubt will make for one hell of a story.

From New York Times bestselling author, Samantha Towle, comes a new standalone romantic comedy.
Vaughn West, Hollywood heartthrob, has been at the top of his game for years. He thinks he’s untouchable—until a betrayal brings him spiraling down. Now, everyone pities him, and if there’s one thing Vaughn hates, it’s pity.
After a few months of working his way through every available actress, pop star, model, and waitress in California, Vaughn needs to get his life back on track and focus on what he does best—making hit movies.
Charlotte Michaels is in love. Just not with one person. Louis Vuitton…Christian Dior…Valentino…Gucci…And the list goes on.
Sadly, Charly’s limited bank account doesn’t allow her those luxuries, and the closest she gets are lucky finds in charity shops and working closely with some of those names in her job as a wardrobe assistant.
Now, Charly has landed the mother of all jobs—working on the new Vaughn West movie. Excited doesn’t even cut it.
Only things don’t go as planned, and it turns out that Vaughn is actually a jerk. A hot jerk, but a jerk nonetheless.
So, why do their clothes keep falling off whenever they’re around each other? And why can’t Charly keep her mind in the closet and off Vaughn?
Getting mixed up with a smart-mouthed, fashion-obsessed wardrobe assistant is the last thing Vaughn needs.
Getting mixed up with an arrogant, self-centered, obnoxious, jumped-up actor who has a lack of respect for fashion is the last thing Charly needs.
Things are about to get hot, dirty, and messy in Hollywood. Very messy. Especially if Charly’s closely guarded secret falls out of her closet.

Samantha Towle again gives us a fun and hot story that will make you wish you knew how to sew!! lol

Vaughn West, Hollywood heartthrob, is King of Hollywood.  He has it all.  An amazing career, amazing BFF, and hot amazing girlfriend.  Life could not be any better.   Until that bubble gets burst by a shocking betrayal.  He spirals into oblivion and sinks into disaster.  He does not give a F***!  His world crumbles and he is out!

Thank goodness he has good peeps surrounding him.  His manager pretty much kicks his emotional arsenal back to reality and helps this broken soul back on his throne.

Back on set… life on track… He is still licking his wounds.  In walks Charley the wardrobe assistant on set into his life, and he will have a whole new wound to lick!! lol or maybe Charley can help him out with it.

They are definitely attracted to each other… but Vaughn needs to keep his head in the game.  He promised his manager total focus on the movie and no distractions.  And hot damn is Charley a distraction!  She is a smart-mouthed, feisty and beautiful distraction.  Luckily for her, getting involved with an arrogant, self-centered, obnoxious, jumped-up actor is the last thing on her to-do list.

I absolutely love Samantha’s writing.  She gives you strong women, lots of laughs, Hot Hot Hot men and lots of elegant writing.

You can never go wrong with reading anything written by her!  So what are you waiting for??

Black Hearts (Sins Duet #1) by Karina Halle

For Vicente Bernal, truth is all he’s known. The son of an infamous drug lord, Vicente was born to help run the family business, which means he’s been raised on a throne of sordid pasts and dirty laundry, violence and pride. But when Vicente stumbles across someone he’s not supposed to know about – a woman from his father’s checkered past – he sets out to California to find her behind his father’s back.

What Vicente doesn’t expect to find in San Francisco is Violet McQueen, the woman’s twenty-year old daughter. Beautiful and edgy with a vulnerability he can’t resist, Violet tempts Vicente from afar and though he promised himself he’d stay away from her, curiosity and lust are powerful forces. Besides, Vicente has always gotten everything he wants – why shouldn’t he have Violet too?

Soon his wants turn into an obsession, one that sweeps Violet into his games as they fall madly, deeply in love with each other, the type of first love that can drive a person mad.

But it’s a love with tragic consequences.

Both the truth – and the lies – not only threaten to tear them apart, but threaten their very lives.

Someone has to pay for the sins of the fathers.

And they’ll be paying the price with their souls.

NOTE: Black Hearts is book one of the Sins Duet, with the sequel, Dirty Souls, releasing in March 2017.
These books can be read as a standalone – though they are a spinoff of the Sins & Needles and Dirty Angels trilogies, Black Hearts & Dirty Souls are set 20 years in the future and follow new characters. You do NOT need to read TAT or DA to enjoy or understand this duet.
