Boomerangers [boo-muh-rang-ers] noun, informal: an adult that moves back home to live with a parent after a period of independence.
I love sex. I love the power, the intimacy, the euphoria it brings. Too bad I’m not having any . . . You’d think as New Orleans’ most renowned sex therapist that I’d be swimming in single men. In a way, I am . . . except for the fact that one is in diapers and the other two are drowning in preteen hormones. As a single mother of three, my days are devoted to my clients and my kids, and my nights are spent with Fabio, my trusty vibrator. When my world begins to unravel, I have no choice but to move back home. And when my high school sweetheart comes waltzing back into my life, comedy and chaos ensue.
What can I say? I never said I could pick ’em, but you can bet your ass I know how to fix ’em.
As soon as the ink dried on my divorce papers, I made myself a solemn vow: I was done with relationships. Moving home to take over my father’s firm was the plan, until Spencer decided to return, along with three souvenirs from the life she’s lived without me.
I’ve been in love with the girl next door for nearly all of my life; the rest was spent trying to forget her. I’d give almost anything for a second chance with her, but I have no time for distractions—especially the kind that involve diapers, bottles, and eighteen-year commitments.
The problem is, she’s already got me by the balls . . . and I’m beginning to feel the noose tightening around my heart.
In good times, and in bad.
In sickness, and in health.
Until death do them part…
Owen and Sloane never foresaw their vows being put to the ultimate test mere hours after declaring those sacred words.
Their lives were shred to pieces on the night of their wedding and the aftermath that followed the tragedy set those pieces ablaze. Promises of better or worse began to blur as they attempted to return to daily routines.
With a burnt and bloodstained wedding dress hidden in the basement, will Sloane be strong enough to mend the broken pieces inside of her husband?
With guilt and despair pulling Owen further into the dark corners of his mind, will he battle his demons, or surrender to them?
Sometimes when love is pulled apart, it might not fit back together as easily as it once did. Every marriage takes faith and sacrifice, but how far will these two go to save what they once had?
It seems the further these newlyweds drift from one another the harder it becomes to focus on the happy life they once envisioned.
The highly anticipated sequel of The Gone Series, Edges of Gone will have readers on the edge of their seats until the very last page.

I’m supposed to hate him.
But I can’t.
I don’t know how.

They don’t play for the same team. Or do they?
Jamie Canning has never been able to figure out how he lost his closest friend. Four years ago, his tattooed, wise-cracking, rule-breaking roommate cut him off without an explanation. So what if things got a little weird on the last night of hockey camp the summer they were eighteen? It was just a little drunken foolishness. Nobody died.
Ryan Wesley’s biggest regret is coaxing his very straight friend into a bet that pushed the boundaries of their relationship. Now, with their college teams set to face off at the national championship, he’ll finally get a chance to apologize. But all it takes is one look at his longtime crush, and the ache is stronger than ever.
Jamie has waited a long time for answers, but walks away with only more questions—can one night of sex ruin a friendship? If not, how about six more weeks of it? When Wesley turns up to coach alongside Jamie for one more hot summer at camp, Jamie has a few things to discover about his old friend... and a big one to learn about himself.
Warning: contains sexual situations, skinnydipping, shenanigans in an SUV and proof that coming out to your family on social media is a dicey proposition.
Jamie and Wes’ story was consuming, empowering, honest, and hotter than hell! Holy hockey pucks and purple skittles did I fall head over heels in love with this love story. – Kelly, Perusing Princesses
I was on the fence for so long because I will be the first to hold my hand up and say that M/M has never really done anything for me in the past. However, two very good author friends told me nearly a year ago that I had to read this book and after some deliberation, I finally jumped in! Alas, I’m converted because my reservations have been silenced with this book.
Jamie and Wes’ story was consuming, empowering, honest, and hotter than hell! Holy hockey pucks and purple skittles did I fall head over heels in love with this love story.
Wes was always aware of his sexual orientation from a young age, and his battle to keep his true feelings hidden from his best friend was honourable and I loved him for it.
Jamie has never had to work hard for female attention but when one drunken night presents an opportunity to experiment he doesn’t shy away from his best friend, and from that moment on questions and confusion rears its head for Jamie, but what was so pleasurable about this read was there was no disgust by any of it, just a quiet, almost diplomatic realisation of personal self awareness that was embraced with sympathetic maturity on a scale that isn’t often seen in ‘fictional’ life changing circumstances.
Witnessing these two talented and beautiful young men manifest into more was a really beautiful reading experience that made me want to bitch slap myself for not delving in sooner.
US is the sequel and I can’t wait to get back on the rink with these boys to see what happens next.

Series: Steel Souls #1
Also by this author: Against the Tide, Headstrong (The Kingdom Book 4), Spark in the Ashes (Steel Souls MC Book 1)
Book 1 in the Steel Souls series, this book is unrelated to any previous work by Nikki Groom.
Sadie Foster hides her rage well. Outwardly she lives a quiet almost solitary life, however look a little deeper and she is a volcano waiting to erupt. Unable to forget her past, she desires revenge and retribution. Little does she know the path it is to lead her down.
Ramsey Dalton is a loud and proud biker. VP of the Steel Souls MC, he likes his bikes fast and his pussy even faster. Loyal to the core, his brothers both blood and water come first. So when he comes across a raven haired beauty getting in the way of club business, he vows to find out more. Little does he know of the darkness she holds and the ripple effects the presence of her in his life will create for both him and his club.
Well that ended my MC book slump. I have always LOVED this genre, but to be honest it has all got a bit same samey of late, leaving me to avoid reading anything in this genre for a while now. But having loved Against the Tide by Ms Groom, I knew this was a book I would most certainly have to make an allowance for. Let me tell you how glad I am about that.
Nikki’s first venture into this popular style is a roaring success as far as I am concerned. Not only is it departure for her in terms of subject and backdrop, thankfully it is also a departure from the rather generic MC stories that every Tom, Dick and Harry seem to be releasing. Straight away I was sucked in by the rather dark and interesting prologue, then I became addicted to the mystery and secrets that you know are waiting just around the corner. It had an almost suspenseful feel about it and I applaud Nikki for being able to get that across in her writing.
Both characters have a history and I think they recognise the darkness they both possess in each other. The chemistry between them is electric, but it is the connection and understanding of who they are as people that seems to attract them the most. Sadie isn’t scared to stand up to Ramsey and he totally respects her for that. On the flip side, Sadie isn’t a shrinking violet that he needs to protect and that seems to be a major turn on for Ram. They can be themselves and although that works for them, I’m not sure it works for all.
So don’t go in expecting a rush job of a storyline; that is totally not Nikki Groom’s style. Their story continues into book 2, Fire in the Stars. So do expect an amazing ending, one that I personally didn’t see coming; and I totally had my own little conspiracy theories running through my head as I raced to the books conclusion, all of which were not on the money in this book anyway. I hope we get further books as well, there are a few interesting secondary characters that I hope Nikki explores more for us in the future.
Another great read from a talented British writer. I highly recommend reading her books of you like a bit of grittiness in your reads. Well done Nikki, and thank-you for restoring my faith in MC romance. I seriously can’t wait for book 2.

For the first time in my life, I’m fighting back, and with Ryder by my side, I’m never letting myself be weak again.

Can she?
It’s been years since his disastrous marriage crashed and burned, and Bradley Hawk has finally moved on. So when Bridget blows back into town with her new fiancé, throwing the engagement party of the year, he could care less…until Ali tells one little lie that lands him smack dab in a fake relationship.

Wanted: Personal Buffer
Often snarly, workaholic executive seeks “buffer” from annoying outside distractions AKA people. Free spirits with personal boundary issues, excessive quirks, or general squeamishness need not apply. Salary negotiable. Confidentiality required.
Workaholic billionaire Sawyer Carlyle may have joked he needed a “buffer” from their marriage-obsessed mom, but he didn’t need a waiting room filled with “candidates” to further distract him. (Thanks, bro.) But when a sexy job applicant shooes his mom and the socialite in tow out of his office, Sawyer sees the genius of the plan. And the woman. In fact, Miss Clover Lee might just get the fastest promotion in history, from buffer to fake fiancé…
This “free-spirit” might look like hot sunshine and lickable rainbows, but she negotiates like a pitbull. Before Sawyer knows what hit him, he’s agreed to give up Friday nights for reality tv, his Saturdays for flea markets (why buy junk still baffles him), his Tuesdays and Thursdays for “date nights” (aka panty-losing opportunities if he plays his cards right). And now she wants lavender bath salts and tulips delivered every Monday?
Yup, she’s just screwing with him. Good thing she’s got this non-negotiatable six-weeks-and-she’s-gone rule or Sawyer may have just met this match…
10 cities in two weeks 10 famous rockstars. On my knees. Against the wall. On my tits
I don’t care. As long as I get the evidence to prove it. Why? Because I caught my former prick of a boyfriend from Heavy Metal Enthusiasts doing a groupie doggie style backstage on the night we were supposed to be celebrating our 1 year anniversary.
He told me I was too uptight. Too vanilla. Too boring. So I got drunk with my bestie, Marsha West, the aspiring videographer. I ranted. I raved. I came up with a crazy idea. What I didn’t know was that my best friend recorded me. Marsha put the video up on YouTube. It went viral with 10 million hits. Now I’ve got fans and sponsors offering me big bucks.
Rockstars are volunteering to be my f*ck buddy.
Hollywood is calling.
I get to choose which rockstars I want.
The stakes are high.
This sh*t just got real.
What could go wrong?
Being the Vice President of the Sin City Outlaws Motorcycle Club comes with its perks.
Respect, power, and easy women whenever I want. I have control in everything I do.
Because of that, I wasn’t expecting my president to put me on babysitting duty, and on a female cop of all fucking people. I kill law enforcement, not protect them.
Alessandra pretends to be the good-guy hiding behind that shiny badge. But I see the darkness dancing in her eyes, and it draws me to her in the worst way. I want to devour that act of innocence, pull her over the line of justice, and into my bed.
I just wasn’t expecting the handful of secrets I got behind that badge of honor I ripped from her chest. Because now, we’re retaliating against a common enemy together.
This is book 3 in the Sin City Outlaws MC series. It is recommended you read Reign, and Mercy before Retaliate. Enjoy.
Two strangers in Paris …
One passionate, earth-shattering kiss.
He was the artist upstairs with the tantalizing smile and laughing eyes.

She was as wild as the horses who owned the beach highways we drove down.
Blake Sayer was the beautiful daredevil who had me wrapped around her finger from the time we were seven.
Until a horrible accident stole every piece of joy from her life.
Ten years later, she’s a shell of the girl she once was, and it’s all my fault. The whispers of our history shackle her to the island I left behind.
