𝗕𝗟𝗨𝗥𝗕 

From USA Today Bestselling Author Jennifer Hartmann, comes a brand new, heartfelt, two-book romance series.

There once was a girl with fireflies in her eyes and music in her soul.

(Remember her… she’s important.)

She’s the reason I panic-bought the little brick house on Maple Street; the one I lived next door to for eight magical years. Now that I’m back digging up floorboards and lost journals, I can’t stop thinking about the two people who grew up here.

You see, that girl was my best friend, and this house was once hers. She also had a big brother who was my everything before circumstance turned us into nothing more than memories.

That’s why I applied for a job at his auto shop—unprepared to discover that my new boss, Cal Bishop, is now gruff, built, and covered in tattoos.

I’m the sun to his overcast sky. The smile to his surly solitude.

A reminder of everything he longs to forget.

But my heart has a secret, and we’re running out of time to fix our torn pages.

Maybe… the same girl who used to be the glue still holds the key to putting our pieces back together.

(See? I told you she was important.)

Toodles,

Lucy

Holy Moly! This author and her ability to flay my heart right open with her phenomenally unforgettable stories. Every single one that I read imprints itself on my heart and I find myself thinking back on them often. This story was no exception.

From the moment I started it I was intrigued with the way we started off. It was obvious there is lots of history, and heartbreaking circumstances just waiting to be revealed. The characters immediately capture me like beacons. Both for different reasons. Both still hurting and suffering from what all we just don’t know yet. But what we can tell is that there is definitely a special connection between them, and their reactions to that draw towards each other is completely different.

Lucy’s character made me feel so much. I laughed, I cried, I rooted for her, I hurt for her. Right now, I feel so much for her. Right now… I am NOT OKAY!
Cal is everything I want in my book boyfriend. He’s gorgeous, he’s tatted, he’s mean yet protective. He’s all anti-relationship yet possessive AF. He’s hurt y’all. And hurt people hurt people.

He frustrated me as much as he fascinated me. He could be intimidating, infuriating, but oh so enticing too. He put up this hard exterior but you can see hints of the ooey gooey center beneath. It will just take the right person to get him to expose those parts of himself.

I must warn you, If you are offended by cliffhangers in books then I must urge you to wait until 1/31/23 until both books in the duet are out. But If like me you don’t mind feeling the burn, then jump head first into this duet ASAP!! I need book 2 immediately, I am ready to see what kind of HEA Author Jennifer Hartmann gives us. I just know it’s going to be EPIC!!

Preorder 𝘼 𝙋𝙚𝙨𝙨𝙞𝙢𝙞𝙨𝙩’𝙨 𝙂𝙪𝙞𝙙𝙚 𝙩𝙤 𝙇𝙤𝙫𝙚, Book two, releasing on January 31st!

Stay Tonight Release & Review




Title: Stay Tonight
Series: Kincaid Brothers #3
Author: Kaylee Ryan
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: January 10, 2023

BLURB
Sterling


It’s always been her, and I just never realized. Now that I’m looking at her that way, I can’t unsee it… and I don’t want to. Alyssa has been my best friend since kindergarten, and these intense new feelings could cost me our friendship.

She’s the one I share everything with, good or bad. It makes sense to share my life with her. But I can’t risk losing the only woman I’ve ever loved, which will happen if she doesn’t feel the same.

Alyssa is loyal and kind and takes my breath away. I just wish it hadn’t taken me so long to figure out what’s been right in front of me.

Alyssa

Falling for my best friend is easy, but keeping it to myself while figuring out what to do about it is the hard part. Because in a small town, everyone knows everyone… and their business.

Sterling is the perfect guy—handsome, with a heart of gold and a protective streak. I know he’ll do anything for me… except maybe admit he feels the same way I do.
So, I’m stuck in limbo and am in love with my best friend. Just when I work up the nerve to finally tell him how I feel, everything changes with a confession and two words: stay tonight.
I am absolutely crazy for the male Kincaid offspring. Like totally fallin’ for all these mouthwateringly fabulous fellas. Immediately as soon as I get through one’s story I’m craving the next, chomping at the bit, counting the day!! For Real my friends. Sterling and Alyssa’s story is the next must read standalone in this series and there is no better time than right now to start this phenomenal series.
Sterling and Alyssa have been best friends since childhood. Included in every family function, it’s as if where one goes the other is always sure to be there as well. Alyssa is the sweetest and Sterling is oh so swoony. The way these Kincaid men dote over the women in their lives, makes my heart melt and my ovaries explode.
This is just the perfect best friends to lovers, vacation, one bed, slow burn romance. They have the best flirtatious banter and they don’t even know it. Author Kaylee Ryan just has this amazing gift to slowly give you everything you want at the perfect pace for our couple.
With delicious chemistry between characters, it was so great that everyone seemed to figure out what Alyssa and Sterling took so much longer to realize. That their perfect soul mate has been in their life since they were little. Four. Fun, flirty, fate had a hand in it, stars!! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

The Hatesick Diaries Release Blitz & Review

Release Date: January 10

Echo Adler hates Reign Davidson. He’s the reason the love of her life left her all alone and broken hearted two years ago. 
 
So it should be easy to stay away. 
 
It should be easy to not dream about his dark and mean eyes, or his cruel but sexy smirks. It should be easy to not think about the guy who ruined her happily ever after. 
 
Only it’s not.
 
Sometimes his intense stares make her heart race, and those smirks of his make her breathless. 
 
But it needs to stop. 
 
Because she has a mission: to get back together with her ex-boyfriend. And Echo will be damned if she keeps dreaming about Reign. 
 
The guy who not only makes her sick with hate but who also happens to be her ex’s best friend.

NOTE: This is a standalone set in the world of St. Mary’s.

Grab Your Copy Here!

Saffron A. Kent has done it again. She just has this special gift with her writing to immediately suck me into her stories. Her characters will undoubtedly snatch me up by my heartstrings in a fisted grip and I know they will put me through the wringer over and over before all will be said and done. OMG! This book Y’all. From the moment I cracked it I was immersed, I was obsessed. I was instantly ADDICTED!!


It doesn’t get better than enemies-to-lovers, but add in that he’s the ex-boyfriends best friend. WOW!! The drama, angst and forbiddenness that it adds to this. Yes please!
Echo is the sweetest. She is beautiful and just good as gold. Like most of this author’s heroines she’s a bit quirky, adorably so. I love her. 🥰

Reign has always had a thing for Echo but really never really thought he deserved her. So when his best friend took a liking to her as well he stepped aside and let who he thought “was the better man” go for her.

This book is such a rollercoaster of emotions. I went from my heart all a flutter, to furious, to fanning myself because it’s freaking HAWT! 🔥 Then I was swooning, swearin’, and shouting hot mess. This book had me feelings every emotion. All the thighs. Even at my lowest points in the book I wouldn’t trade a second.

This is probably my FAVORITE of the series. Just Phenomenal, Fantastic, Terrifically Unforgettable. Fifth and final standalone book in the St. Mary’s Rebels is not to be missed. I highly recommend the entire series but you absolutely cannot miss this one. I cannot wait for the spin-off series coming soon. FIVE Favorite in Series Stars ⭐️✨⭐️✨⭐️✨⭐️✨⭐️✨

With every new book I find myself more and more entranced in this book world she has created and I never want to leave it. I sent Santa 🎅 my list and it included lots and lots of Wyncote stories. I’m talking, Cali Melle can do generations if needed. Pretty Please with gumdrops and candy canes.  I just need these men like I need hot chocolate 🍫 this time of the year.

I was able to grab a hot drink, a comfy blanket and settle in while my kiddos took a long winter’s nap… SIKE! 😝 My kids won’t nap. But the great thing- this is just the perfect length novella. I devoured it in the time it took for a round of the Grinch movie and an afternoon snack. Not one of my little creatures was stirring, but mama’s heat level sure was. 🔥🔥🔥

He told me things were too complicated. Messy. Wrong. 

That we could never be together.

With too much at stake, he sacrificed our hearts and ended it. 

Now, he’s back and he still wants me.

He still loves me.

Oh QB Tyler, My Astonishing Angel of Angst. You have done it once again. What Was Meant to Be has whipped it’s way right into this gals heart. A staggering and bewitching story that will have you stunned from the start all the way to the explosive ending. If you even mention a forbidden age-gap I practically start drooling. 🤤GAH! They are so my jam, yall!  The heat, the angst, the sneaking around.

HOLY HOT HADES!! 🔥🥵🔥Don’t even get me on a roll about QB Tylers dynamically explosive 🧨 love scenes. I don’t know how she does it but she always manages to blend this perfect amount of tender and soul-uniting moments with down and dirty, toss them under goods they are ruined now, moments. She just casts 🪄 her literary spell on me and I’m entranced and under her spell until the last syllable of the epilogue. 

I really loved all the characters. Well okay not all  *cough,cough Parker🤬) Jacob, Kevin, and Michelle have this amazingly close friendship that has spanned years. As godfather to Kevin and Michelle’s two children, Jacob just fit right in as a piece of the family puzzle. 

The dynamics of all that could change when the once innocent way he felt about Whitney changes when he has a little too much to drink and stays over at Kevin and Michelle’s. Whitney reveals that she has been crushing on him for a long time. She isn’t a little girl anymore. She is a beautiful woman and totally off limits.  Everyone knows that forbidden fruit is always the yummiest! 🍑🍒

Guilt, fear, and loyalty leads to a life changing decision and double dose of heartbreak for our couple. Even if the road was paved with good intentions it can still be one heck of a bumpy ride. 

You do not want to miss a paragraph of the heart-wrenching emotions, the angst, and the steam. So full of frustration, lip biting banter, and sinfully wicked chemistry?! OMG the chemistry. A tantalizingly taboo tale of inevitable love that just may have you wondering, can a relationship that has the power to hurt so many people really be What Was Meant to Be? Well in this case… I say yes, yes, one thousand times yes!! Five Stars for the H3 Effect! ⭐️✨⭐️✨⭐️✨⭐️✨⭐️

💔Heart Break ✔️

😩Hangover ✔️

🥰Happy Ever After ✔️

Stay Forever Release Blast & Review




Title: Stay Forever
Series: Kincaid Brothers #2
Author: Kaylee Ryan
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: November 1, 2022

BLURB
Declan


My whole world has revolved around caring for my baby girl. I never wanted to let anyone into my life—into our life—until Kennedy came to town and threw a wrench into my single-dad routine.

She’s the first woman to make me feel something… anything, in a long time. If only she would let me in.

Kennedy is kind, beautiful, and everything I never knew that I wanted. She looks at me as if I’m her entire world, and her bond with my daughter is something to see. But there’s a problem: she’s leaving in a few weeks, and I need to find a way to ask her to stay.

Kennedy

My trip to Willow River came at the perfect time to escape. Taking care of my grandmother should be my whole focus. What I shouldn’t be doing is falling for a drop-dead-gorgeous single dad. But my meddling grandmother has other ideas.

Declan is impossible to resist. Everything with him is easy and feels right. We feel right. But the timing is all wrong—no matter how I wish I could change things.

He’s a forever kind of guy, but this isn’t my home, and he doesn’t know what he’s asking when two words change everything… “stay forever.”

Holy Moly You Guys! Kaylee Ryan has done it again. Not even a little surprised but just as giddy and excited that she did. Her stories are just the sweetest. Relatively low on the angst they always leave me feeling so warm and ooey gooey inside. I oh and ah over the sweet and tender moments and then totally fan myself 🥵 over the scorchingly sinful moments of shared lovin’ too. 🔥

Deacon Kincaid is MY Kincaid brother. This is my official public claim of him.  I have been kinda obsessing about the sexy single dad since we met him. Even with just getting small glimpses of him here and there I still just knew he would be amazing by the way his little girl was his everything. TBH  I have always been a sucker for a single Dad because I was raised by one, and there is no bond more precious than the bond of a Daddy and his Daughter. Since Blakely Is his number one responsibility, Declan has no plans to settle down anytime in the near future. Well…That is until he meets Kennedy. She just might be the person that has him reevaluating his stance on living life as a bachelor with his only commitment to his daughter. The way he is with his daughter is just absolutely adorable. Blakely is so sassy and inquisitive. The is bubbly and loving and an overall ray of sunshine. She could cheer the grumpiest of grumps up, on their worst of days. 

Kennedy is just coming off the tail end of a situation that wasn’t fulfilling her the way it should have. Even though ultimately she would never see any of her dreams come to fruition had she stayed it still was a difficult thing to endure. Her grandmother had an injury that required her to need some help with the events facility she owns in Willow River. This opened up the perfect chance for her to get away and lick her wounds while also helping her grandma. When she meets Declan Kincaid and his little girl, she certainly is NOT ready for the overload of feelings they bring out in her. She finds herself falling hard and fast for these two. Struggling with all the ifs, and’s and but’s, will she throw caution to the wind and take a chance and decide to give love a chance and Stay Forever with Declan and Blakely?! Grab this amazing story and find out now.

FIVE Forever you will Stay Stars!

Mine To Hold, book four in author Natasha Madison’s Southern Wedding series is just what you are looking for. Swoony, sexy, and smokin hot, Bennett and Presley will melt hearts and kindles alike with their charming and emotional storyline. 🥰🥰

Presley has had a front row seat to the relationship woes of her siblings and that has left her traumatized so she vowed to herself to stay single. She had always had a thing for her brother’s best friend, Bennett. For the last twelve years they have been hooking up whenever he would come home to visit. But when he moved back they became regular secret friends with benefits. She definitely went out of her way to make sure to keep things casual but a handful of positive pregnancy tests threw a monkey wrench in that plan. Will she be able to stick to her stay a strong single woman plan once Bennett kicks off operation “break down her walls and make my baby mama officially mine?”   

Bennett has actually been in love with Presley for the last twelve years so all the pregnancy news does for this amazing man is solidify for him that Presley is in fact HIS.

Ms. Madison gives each sibling their own story touching on different troupes in different books, but putting her own special sauce on each one. I love how she gives just the right blend of steam, humor, sweet, angst, heart, frustration, and tears. I have felt the full range of emotions by the time I have finished the story. Check this book, actually this whole series out. FOUR, fills my heart with LOVE Stars! ✨⭐️✨⭐️✨⭐️✨⭐️

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…

Mine for Yours Review

Holy Heartbreak and Healing Y’all. Harloe Rae has done it again and far surpassed  anything I was hoping to get from this book. Then she went and kicked it up several notches from there and slap BLEW.MY.MIND!🤯 She took me on this perfectly polished journey packed full of emotions, steam, swoon, the best of banter, and two adorable kiddos. I have always been a sucker for a good ‘ol single parent romance, but being served up a double dose of single parent goodness is just…”Chef’s Kiss” 💋 This has all the best parts of so many of my favorite tropes. Like it’s my own little smorgasbord of literary deliciousness. So run over to Amazon and grab your copy ASAP. Here are a few of the things you can look forward to with this book. 

🥃Brother’s Best Friend

🥰Single Parent x 2

🖤Frenemies to Lovers

🥃Top Tier Banter ‘O Hate 

🔥Super Steamy 

🥰All The Feels 

🖤Workplace Romance 

Rhode’s and Rylee are just remarkable. Separately I love them both. Together I am OBSESSED! They are both suffering over a recent tragedy that affected them both. When they meet let’s just say it’s almost loathe at first sight. They both are definitely attracted to each other but are trying to keep things strictly professional… that is until they can’t control themselves anymore. They are just explosively HAWT!!🔥 I mean DAAANNNNGGGG! Rylee was so sassy yet strong at the same time. Rhodes was alpha and grumpy, but also oh so swoony.  I just couldn’t get enough of them, and don’t even get me started on their little scene stealing adorable offspring. So.Stinkin.Cute. They had it all mapped out for their parents. Lol

I went in not really knowing too much about this book and would recommend you do the same. It will make it that much more impactful when you do read it. Every scene will pop you right upside the head with it’s powerfully unforgettable storyline. A truly remarkable and unique take on the single parent romance trope.

I love the background and all thoughts and details she puts into each and every unique character she writes. It shows the quality of her writing. I can’t get enough of her writing. Especially her series. That is why she is one of my  favorite one-click authors!

I didn’t expect to see Rylee Creed after her brother’s funeral.

That’s the initial reason my jaw hangs slack when she walks into Bent Pedal a month later.

The loss of my friend hit me hard, but that’s nothing compared to the crash she’s endured.

Grief and misery still shadow her every move.

But she’s not alone.

A little boy about the age of my daughter clings to her side.

Their shared pain is too ripe, salt in my raw wounds.

I assume we’re about to make a deal and go our separate ways.

But this bar was Trevor’s pride and joy.

She wants to honor his final wishes.

How can I possibly stand in her way?

Simple. I don’t.

Our paths collide after that point.

The journey forward is messy and complicated, much like us.

Maybe there’s an exchange to be made after all.

Rylee just has to willingly accept the wager.

Then I’ll trade her broken heart for mine.

Dear Diary,

I’m going to do it. I’m going to run.
I have to, because I finally have something to live for.
When I first saw those two pink lines, it was a blow that stung harder than any slap or punch ever could. I was devastated. I’m not sure I’m fit to be a mother, but I’m damn sure going to protect this child from the monster down the hall. He will never know it exists… he will never lay one finger on my baby. Not ever.
Some might think the life growing inside of me would be a reminder of all I’ve lost—of all of the pain I’ve endured, the hurt, and the terror. And in a way, they’re right, but it also gives me hope. Now I have something—someone—to fight for.
Anxiously, Nora
__________________
Dear Diary,
I hope this finds you in time—that you can help me, that you believe me.
Please believe me…
I had to run sooner than planned… he’s too unpredictable. I can’t take any unnecessary risks, not anymore, not when I have so much to lose.
It’s funny, I used to want to die, for him to hit me so hard I would never wake up, but now? Now I want to live. I have to live.
If you’re reading this still, look for me in the place where the lake meets the shore. I’ll wait for you as long as possible. I understand if you can’t come, or if you don’t want to… but I really hope you do.
Desperately, Nora

Quarterback Sneak Release Blitz & Review

 

Quarterback Sneak by Kandi Steiner is now live!

Quarterback Holden Moore can have any girl he wants.
Except me: the coach’s daughter.

With piercing green eyes, herculean biceps, and irresistible dimples, Holden is the number one target for every girl on campus. But according to his teammates, football is the only love of his life.

He’s their leader, their QB1 and team captain who is all business and no play.

But when I’m with him? Mr. Serious isn’t serious at all. He loves to push my buttons, to pin me with those sexy eyes of his and tease me until I bite back.

I remind him I’m off limits.
He can’t have me, and I don’t want him—or anyone else, for that matter.

I’m here for one reason: to show my father I’m more than his greatest disappointment.

But when an old injury flares up and I’m forced to work with Holden every day as his athletic trainer, his attempts to get under my skin start becoming harder to resist.

We can’t give in, no matter how much the air crackles between us when we’re close.
I’m the coach’s daughter, and if Holden Moore wants to go pro, he’s got to play by daddy’s rules.

Otherwise, he’ll be off the team.
And he’s not the only one with something to lose.

I couldn’t possibly love this series any more than I do. Author Kandi Steiner Is one of those authors I immediately one-click.  ANYTHING she writes. I don’t even need to read the blurb first. I know I’m going to love it. I don’t think I have ever rated any of her works less than a four star. Pretty sure I would darn near give one of my pinky toes to be granted the privilege to ARC read her grocery list. Lol  But really,  If you are anything like me then you love a good college/new adult, sports, forbidden (quarterback & coach’s daughter), forced proximity, grumpy/sunshine, secret romance. What you will find even more appetizing here is the way this author flips the trope script on you and you get anything but the typical in some of these tropes. Trust me, you definitely don’t have to worry that you’ve read this story before. Because you HAVEN’T!  Holden and Julep were unexpectedly everything I didn’t know I needed and SO.MUCH.MORE! 

HOLY HOT HADES! Two words ladies. Holden.Moore. The little tidbits we’ve got of our captivating captain in the previous books could never have prepared my heart for a whole book of Holden. Very focused and together, he’s got one thing on his mind, football. Pretty planned out for smooth sailing right on through his senior year. But what he couldn’t have planned out in any playbook, was being flipped right on his fanny by none other than the coach’s daughter, in all her delicious forbidden glory. 

Julep Lee has walls as high and tight as Ft. Knox up to keep people from getting close. No stranger to loss, it’s just best to not get close to people then you can’t lose them. Holden is someone and evokes feelings she never expected. His ability to cut down to the most vulnerable and terrified parts of her and meet her there, with an understanding only someone who knows pain like she has could. GAH. 🥺 The emotions in this book. In their story they discovered how to let things be and forgive themselves. They were able to look at life from a new perspective. That realization that you have found your person. The one who completes you, who gives you strength to let your guard down and truly be vulnerable with someone else. The complexity and depths to these characters. Their journey of finding love and a special bond over shared past traumatic experiences, and being able to share those with each other. A love so powerful and full of hope and healing in these sweet and tender moments. 🥰😍🥰

But as sweet as Holden was he had this amazingly alpha side that came out and it was hella hot y’all. Like a spark ready to ignite at any second they were just explosive. I’m talking about he smirks,  the dimple comes out and panties go 💣 🩲POOF! 🩲💣💋  *Chef’s Kiss*💋  I mean we all know combustible undies at a smile and a wink equals a good day. Am I right?!😏

Quarterback Sneak is the third stand-alone book in the Red Zone Rivals series. While you do not have to read the other book in the series before reading this, there are appearances by couples from the previous books. Plus they are amazing stories, so I cannot recommend them enough, so I say read them anyway if you can. You will be so glad you did. 

My Cr8zysockbookblock Wrap Up

⭐️Star Rating~⭐️✨⭐️✨⭐️✨⭐️✨⭐️✨⭐️~

SIX because I am never gonna want this series to end even though the next book is the final book, and five just isn’t enough to do it justice STARS!! 

💭Overall Thoughts~I am such a Kandi Steiner super fan. Her emotional and angst filled writing never fails to suck me right from the first paragraph and have me lingering in a book hangover long after the last sentence is read. Her masterful word wizardry blends fun and super sexy, with the perfect amount of emotions and angst. It is so obvious the careful thought she puts into the backstory of each and every unique character she creates. I can’t get enough. Especially her series. That is why she is at the top of my list of one of my favorite one-click authors! 

🌶HEAT~ 🌶🌶🌶🌶 EXPLOSIVE, SCORCHING AND DELICIOUS. This author never let’s me down in the “love scene” department.  

🥰HEA/CLIFFY🧗‍♀️~ No Cliffy. HEA– I was left all warm and ooey gooey at the end. I couldn’t love Holden and Julep any more than I do at this moment. So happy with the glimpse into the fourth and final book in the Red Zone Rivals Series. While I’m so sad to see this series end, I will be super pumped to see what Ms.Steiner has in store for us next. 

 

Kandi Steiner is an Amazon Top 5 bestselling author and whiskey connoisseur living in Tampa, FL. Best known for writing “emotional rollercoaster” stories, she loves bringing flawed characters to life and writing about real, raw romance — in all its forms. No two Kandi Steiner books are the same, and if you’re a lover of angsty, emotional, and inspirational reads, she’s your gal.

An alumna of the University of Central Florida, Kandi graduated with a double major in Creative Writing and Advertising/PR with a minor in Women’s Studies. She started writing back in the 4th grade after reading the first Harry Potter installment. In 6th grade, she wrote and edited her own newspaper and distributed to her classmates. Eventually, the principal caught on and the newspaper was quickly halted, though Kandi tried fighting for her “freedom of press.”

She took particular interest in writing romance after college, as she has always been a die hard hopeless romantic, and likes to highlight all the challenges of love as well as the triumphs.

When Kandi isn’t writing, you can find her reading books of all kinds, planning her next adventure, or pole dancing (yes, you read that right). She enjoys live music, traveling, playing with her fur babies and soaking up the sweetness of life.
