Never With Me Release Blitz & Review




Title: Never With Me
Author: Kaylee Ryan
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: July 26, 2022

BLURB
Ramsey


I’m out of my depth participating in a blind-date photo shoot. Not only am I meant to act like I’m open for dating, but I’m meant to be sexy and get up close and personal with a complete stranger.

None of the above is me. But I’m a sucker, and my best friend can talk me into anything.

Deacon is the kind of guy my heart could be safe with. But I’ve been taking care of myself for a long time, and I’m not sure I’m ready to rely on anyone else. Not even the handsome, successful older brother of my best friend.


Deacon

I never saw her coming. One date with a beautiful stranger and I’m hooked.

Technically, Ramsey isn’t a stranger. She’s my little sister’s best friend, the same sister who volunteered me because she claims “I’m a workaholic in desperate need of love.”

All I know is I can’t stop thinking about Ramsey and the way her lips felt against mine. I have to see her again. Good thing I’m an attorney, because convincing her to take a chance on me is going to be the hardest case I’ve ever pleaded. She’s worried about the past repeating itself. What she’s yet to figure out is that her fear is unnecessary… never with me.

My Review

Kaylee Ryan has done it again my book lovin’ friends. Dropped right in with another one of her perfectly delicious, sweet, and fantastically swoony stories that make you feel all ooey gooey and fluttery inside. Never With Me is Ramsey and Deacon’s remarkably heartfelt journey that will have you feeling good, maybe a little frustrated a couple of times, and a whole lotta love for ALL the characters in this book. From the very first time they saw each other they had undeniable instant chemistry and an instant connection, making this a super flirty, fun, and definitely a fan yourself because it’s so freaking hot, tale of love.  It just further cemented to me why this author IS and WILL REMAIN one of my one-click favorites for steamy, dreamy, feel-good romances.

One of my favorite things about this author’s works is how big family plays a part in her books/series. You can’t help but to want to be a part of these stories. To be friends or a cousin or someone because I want to be at a family cookout or something hanging out with all these awesome people. One thing is for certain,  I am always up for being swept away into the magical book worlds that author Kaylee Ryan has created. 

Ramsey Rammed Her Way right into my heart from page one with her emotional backstory. From the first paragraph of the prologue I knew this woman deserved so much more than she had ever been given before. She needed to be loved wholly, completely, unequivocally. I love how coming to Willow River was her new start and she was ultimately able to find everything she needed to heal the parts of her that had been cracked and broken by the ones who were supposed to take care of her when she was younger. She found her people. She finally had a true loving support system.

When a favor to her introduces her to, Deacon the drop dead gorgeous older brother of her best friend, Palmer. Instantly attracted but hesitant for several reasons Deacon seriously has his work cut out for him if he wants to wear her down and get her to give him a chance. Not only is he older but also the workaholic brother of her BFF, but he has to penetrate walls of protection put up to protect the heart of a woman that has been hurt and does not trust or intend to ever depend on a man again.

My heart just bled for them both. I love the personal growth her character went through in this book. The way she grew more confident in voicing what fears she had, the things she had been through. The way she opened up. She was already strong but with his backing she was even more so. GAH!! She did good Y’all!

I am definitely Devoted to Deacon. While he may be a workaholic because he has goals that include taking over the law firm where he works when the partners retire. Up to this point he really hasn’t had any drive to find a girlfriend because that would just occupy time he could devote to working instead. But holy moly ladies, he’s a total sweetheart.

He’s sexy and everything about him is the stuff book boyfriend dreams are made of. A successful lawyer who loves his family, is patient, supportive and kind, plus knows how to throw down in pound town. Can I get a HELL Yeah?! Y’all, I would beg this man to allow me the pleasure of hand washing his skivvies after cutting the grass at 3:00 pm on the hottest day in July. Lol Okay so maybe not really dirty laundry because TBH I have seven kids and do enough laundry, but I’m sure there are other ways I could lend a helping hand. 😏

Pretty Please with a Cherry on Top, any wish would be my command. Deacon just did it for me guys. 

This author writes the swooniest of heroes. So henceforth I shall refer to him as  “Deacon the Delicious.”  When you read this you will completely understand why. 

Never With Me is a stand-alone story told in alternating POV with elements of many different tropes. Fans of my best friend’s brother, age-gap, and small town. There is an instant connection and chemistry but we get to see the relationship build and grow as well. This book,   the setting, all the secondary characters kept me engaged and loving every minute.

I am really pumped because this book introduced us to Ramsey’s cousins,  the Kincaid brothers whose stories we will be getting in a new Kincaid Brothers Series, which will feature each of the nine brother’s in his own book. I AM SO EXCITED! Make sure you grab your copy of Never With Me today and fall in love with Ramsey, and Deacon. Get ready for a little kickstart introduction to the hotness that is the Kincaid boys.

Fame Release Blast & Review

FAME

The final, breathtaking stand-alone in the Secrets in L.A. Series

I guess it’s naïve to say I thought I would be an actress.

But isn’t that why everyone comes to Los Angeles? Fame?

Then again, I’m from here.

And after years of paying my dues, all that fame and fortune was shoved at me with the promise of care for my family.

I’d grabbed for it without truly seeing what I was reaching for. Now I’m trapped in a role that owns my body and slowly steals pieces of my soul.

I wanted to be on camera . . . I never wanted this.

But when an intriguing stranger steps into my life, everything changes.

For the first time in so long, I feel alive—cherished and adored.

But as our stolen glances and secret smiles turn into shared nights and hidden passion, I know it’s only a matter of time before we fall apart.

Because he has no idea what I do for a living, and he works with my boss . . .

Now all my secrets are threatening to expose my deepest shame and ruin so much more than the façade I’ve fought to maintain.

My Review

My friends, FAME is FANTASTICALLY FABULOUS!! It’s MAGICALLY MARVELOUS!! I’m gonna calm down and stop yelling at you in shouty CAPS

But in all seriousness this book y’all. Molly McAdams once again proves why she is one of my absolute favorite authors. She is a must read everything she writes, plus owns every ebook, and signed paperbacks too. It doesn’t matter the genre or trope I know going in that with this author’s work I’m in for a story that will be profound and positively unforgettable. A story that is sure to weave itself through my mind, heart and soul and leave a little piece of itself behind. A story I felt so deeply that I will think back on it for years to come. As I still do with pretty much all of her books I have read thus far. (I will go to my death bed still feeling Taking Chances)

Trust me when I tell you Fame is a story like no other. Jensen and Mia are two imperfect humans who just happen to be perfect for each other. Bringing you the best by giving you a little taste of everything, this sinful and sexy romance is slap full of secrets, lies and mystery. Not skimping on the angst, steam, banter, tension, and a good ‘ol swoony and southern, Georgia bred country boy to come in and make everything all better  (this Georgia girl might be biased but there’s nothing hotter than a GA boy) I promise this book has something for every reader. It will captivate you from paragraph one until the very last sentence. Not just a book but an unputdownable journey to unite two amazingly unique and inspiring characters who against any obstacles that may come between them truly belong together. But what to do when love is inevitable between two people and one is dang near ready to sprint in the opposite direction away from it?  Will love bring them together or will Fame tear them apart? 

Mia is really a special character. She is one of the most unselfish of heroines I have ever had the pleasure of reading, yet her circumstances broke my heart over and over again. Her strength and dedication to her family was commendable. How could you not fall in love with her story? This amazing woman who sacrificially suffered for those she loved most in the world. It was devastating and inspiring at the same time. The internal conflicts are gut-wrenching. But I was so immersed in this story I really felt her struggle and found myself battling the what would I do in real life?

I think her battles with the life she was forced into and its impact on her character as a person just made me love her more. She was a deeply loving character but as much love as she had for others she didn’t have it for herself. I wanted to be able to jump into the book and just hug her and tell her I see you. You are beautiful and I see you for who you are. I see you for why and not what you have to do. She was existing, getting by and surviving. But she wasn’t living. She wasn’t enjoying her life. Until she met Jensen. He brought life back into her. He made her feel things no one ever had. It put the carefully crafted walls she’d put up to hide her secrets behind at risk of crumbling down around her. But for the first time she began to think she finally found someone who might be worth the risk. But there is still so much he doesn’t know about her. What will happen when the truth comes to light?

“You don’t know what my greatest joy is or the worst moments of my life. You don’t know what I’ve done to survive.”

Jensen is deliciously swoony and without a doubt book HUSBAND material. I say husband because this man is better than a book boyfriend. Boy oh boy was he ever hot and so dreamy too y’all. 

He had been burned in the past and that had an impact on him. He certainly wasn’t looking for a relationship, but he was instantly drawn to the beautiful yet emotionally barricaded girl from the third floor of his new office building. Quickly he finds himself unable to resist the need to get to know and win this woman over. He knows it will be no easy feat but not one to give up; he sets out to win her over. He’s just so stinking sweet. He is caring and thoughtful. Successful but humble. Supportive and protective. Loving and kind. Gah! The way he was with her melted me into a puddle of goo y’all! I was a pile of jelly for Jensen. I could go on about him FOREVER

None of that matters because I hear you in songs. I see you when I close my eyes. I feel you in my veins.”

In closing let me just say this book will tug on your heart strings. It will move you. You will laugh, and cry. You will fan yourself, get frustrated, cry again, and swoon so hard. You will fall so hard for all these characters (old and new). The writing is so engaging you feel like one of the gang, a part of the story.  So vividly you feel like you share in the outrage, the excitement, the urge to smack a fool upside the back of his head and tell him to get it together.  Mostly I just wanna see everyone get all the goodness life has to offer.  But alas, I cannot actually be a part of the story and that is just the mark of a truly talented author, the fact that they make you forget that you aren’t. This author does this to me. EVERY.SINGLE.TIME! 

Jensen and Mia’s breathtakingly remarkable journey is not one to be missed. It is the final standalone (with crossover characters) in the Secrets in L.A. series and told in dual POV. You can read the entire series for FREE in Kindle Unlimited. Go grab you some snacks, a drink and hold onto your taters because Fame is gonna take your heart on one heck of a rollercoaster of feelsEnjoy!⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Blind Side Release Blitz & Review

 

Blind Side by Kandi Steiner is now live!

 

Blind Side is a fake dating sports romance that early readers are calling Kandi’s spiciest book yet! Add in that the heroine is a virgin and takes “lessons” from our star athlete Hero on how to please herself, and this is one hot summer release you won’t want to miss!⁣

𝐓𝐡𝐞 𝐡𝐨𝐭𝐭𝐞𝐬𝐭 𝐜𝐨𝐥𝐥𝐞𝐠𝐞 𝐟𝐨𝐨𝐭𝐛𝐚𝐥𝐥 𝐬𝐚𝐟𝐞𝐭𝐲 𝐢𝐧 𝐭𝐡𝐞 𝐧𝐚𝐭𝐢𝐨𝐧 𝐣𝐮𝐬𝐭 𝐚𝐬𝐤𝐞𝐝 𝐦𝐞 𝐭𝐨 𝐛𝐞 𝐡𝐢𝐬 𝐟𝐚𝐤𝐞 𝐠𝐢𝐫𝐥𝐟𝐫𝐢𝐞𝐧𝐝.⁣

𝐀𝐧𝐝 𝐈 𝐣𝐮𝐬𝐭 𝐚𝐬𝐤𝐞𝐝 𝐡𝐢𝐦 𝐭𝐨 𝐭𝐚𝐤𝐞 𝐦𝐲 𝐯𝐢𝐫𝐠𝐢𝐧𝐢𝐭𝐲.⁣

Clay Johnson has the abs of Adonis and the deadly smirk of the devil, himself. There’s hardly a day he’s not headline material during football season, and never a day he isn’t a bullseye target for every girl on campus.⁣

He used to be the easiest of all the players for me to wrangle as the Public Relations Coordinator, but after a nasty breakup with his high school sweetheart, he’s a mess.⁣

And a complete pain in my ass.⁣

We meet to discuss his behavior and review media relations standards. But when he witnesses how I fall to pieces in front of my guitar-toting crush, his wheels start turning. And he cooks up this absurd plan.⁣

He helps me get noticed. ⁣
I help him make his ex jealous. ⁣
All by pretending to be in a relationship.⁣

What he doesn’t realize is that this bookworm is a virgin, and far from versed in seducing a musician. So, to sweeten the deal, I convince him to help me — not just to get my crush’s attention, but to knock his socks off once I have it.⁣

But the more I come unraveled at the hands of Clay Johnson, the more trouble I have discerning what’s fake and what’s undoubtedly real — particularly, the way my heart flutters every time that breathtaking man touches me.⁣

We set the rules. We put the safeguards in place.⁣

But they say rules are meant to be broken.⁣
They probably should have added that hearts are, too.⁣

My Review


My friends. I am absolutely cuckoo for Clay and Giana!🥰 I happen to love this take on a new adult/sports romance, which is a pretty common trope right now. Author Kandi Steiner attacks Clay and Giana’s story with gusto, giving us two extremely loveable characters that instantly captured my heart. With an attention grabbing storyline from the get go you will be instantly addicted to all things Giana and Clay. Y’all ready for this? Because this is a little bit sweet, a little bit swoony, and whole lotta sexy. Pearl Clutchers get ta clutchin’ because this is the 🔥HOTTEST 🔥virgin heroine romance this girl has ever read!🥵

Clay is still reeling from a shocking and unexpected dumping courtesy of his highschool sweetheart when he happens to notice the awkwardly adorable yet kind of hot Public Relations Coordinator for his team is losing it a bit over the musician at the place where they are having a business meeting. He immediately comes up with an idea. He can help Giana get the musician’s attention and she can help him make his ex jealous. Win Win.They form a plan. They make rules. They begin their lessons Then O-M-G! The lessons, I couldn’t get enough of the lessons. (Fanning myself just think about them) Giana has a special request of her own. These two are fun, flirty, so freaking hot together. The lines quickly start to blur. Is it possible this fake relationship is becoming real?  But the times when they talked and learned about each others growing up. It was just sweet and vulnerable and in those moments you just knew they were meant to be together.

Here are just a few things you can expect from Blind Side. 

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ A Fantastically Phenomenal Five Star Read

🏈 A gorgeous Hero who will frustrate you as well as make your heart flutter

👓A Fake/Opposites Attract Relationship

🏈 A beautiful, sweet, and sassy heroine

💋Ex/Other people causing drama

🏈Scorching Hot Scenes

👓Complete Standalone but will be more in this world

🥰HEA

Misconception Release Blitz & Review




Title: Misconception
A Coming Home Series Standalone
Author: Kaylee Ryan
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: June 7, 2022

BLURB
Hudson


I didn’t plan on kissing my best friend’s twin sister… or falling for her. But it happened all the same. It’s always been Riley, but after I finally get the chance to taste her lips, she ghosts me.

Not exactly the response I was hoping for. Getting out of town for a while, and giving her space, seemed like the best thing for us both. Until the night before my year overseas, and she ended up in my bed.

I thought leaving her was the hardest thing I’ve ever experienced, but returning home to find her with a newborn and knowing she’s moved on is a sucker punch to the gut. She can push me away all she wants, but the sexy single mom better get used to me being around, because I’m home to stay.


Riley

I’ve had a thing for Hudson Fleming for as long as I can remember. But I couldn’t get past his friendship with my sister. When I hear that he’s planning on leaving town, I know it’s now or never. Spending the night with him changes my life¾in more ways than one.

Now he’s halfway around the world, and I’m pregnant. Having this baby alone doesn’t scare me half as much as my feelings for Hudson.

When he returns to town, I’m torn between loving and hating him. How can I not since he gave me the greatest gift, then walked away from us both? And now he wants to be a family… like he didn’t break my heart into a million pieces.

My Review

OMG!! Y’all this book was SO GOOD. I mean a twin sister’s BFF/friends-to-lovers/secret baby romance. Heck yeah.🤩  I was all about this book. It was just what I needed in my life right now. I get in kicks where I read a LOT of dark romance and I have been in one lately, but I absolutely need to break up the dark at times and Kaylee Ryan is one of my go to favorites. You just can’t help but to fall head over heels for this author’s characters. Her heroes are the trifecta. Swoony, sweet and oh so smexy. 🔥 Her heroines are fun and flirty and I would most definitely be friends with them all IRL. 

Misconception is Hudson and Riley’s story and part of the Coming Home Series. Which is a fabulous series, so if you haven’t checked it out yet I highly recommend doing so. Each story is a standalone. Anywho…

For years Hudson and Riley have secretly harbored feelings for each other. They run in the same circle of friends and are always around each other. Though assumptions about how the other feels and maybe their biggest hurdle of all is Riley’s twin sister and Hudson’s long term BFF, Raven. The thought of her being upset  has caused neither to make a move…up until now. An unexpected kiss, rash decisions and alcohol lead to an unforgettable journey that will melt your heart, break your heart, and then heal your heart. 🥺

Fall in love with Hudson, Riley and their entire crew in this phenomenally fantastic story that will have you all up in your feels. 🥰 Are you ready to be left feeling all warm and fuzzy with the best kinds of book hangover? Then do yourself a favor and grab Misconception today. It’s sweet, full of heat, and pretty quick to read. Perfect for a hot summer night. Five My Heart’s all a Flutterin’ Stars⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Blurb:

From USA Today and Amazon Charts bestselling author Meghan Quinn comes a brand new romantic comedy about a one-night stand gone completely wrong. Laugh out loud and steamy with a heart-stopping happily ever after.

I knocked up my best friend’s sister.

Figured I would get straight to the point because how it happened is a mere snippet of the story I have to tell. The real meat and potatoes is what happened after.

Let’s start with how she decided to inform me and Pacey the news . . . together. Imagine that nightmare. I was going into what I thought was a hockey marketing meeting and then BAM! I’m going to be a dad and my best friend/teammate is attempting to imprint my face with his fist.

It wasn’t pretty.

Threats were tossed around, friendships were revoked, and then I was marched up to her apartment, suitcases in hand, and forced to live with her so I could take care of her every need. Given how much I’ve pined for the girl, you would think that wouldn’t be a hardship. Wrong.

This is my one shot to win my teammate back. Pacey is the only family I’ve got, so hooking up with his sister isn’t a mistake I can make twice . . . despite the fact that she’s pregnant with my child.

But with every mood swing, every pair of pants that doesn’t fit right, and every late night run to find the perfect donut, I’m finding it harder and harder not to fall for my best friend’s little sister.

Especially when she kisses me…

MY REVIEW

Those Three Little Words is a fantastically funny and heartfelt brother’s best friends, one night stand, accidental pregnancy, troubled hero, sports romance story with just the right blend of sweet and swoony with sexy and angsty. Eli and Penny’s journey packs the perfect blend of witty banter, all the emotions and plenty of steam. In classic Meghan Quinn fashion you will run the gamut of feels as you find yourself laughing, crying, fanning yourself, swooning, and getting fed up and frustrated with Eli at times. He’s oh so delicious but this tortured man has some past trauma that’s causing some present day issues. TBH Penny is just adorable but I wanted to shake her a few times for some of her behaviors in response to the way Eli was acting. But even with that said they couldn’t be more perfect for each other. 

You really should check this book out. It has it all!!  With an amazing cast of secondary characters this book will keep you entertained with things going on from start to finish. Fans of Meghan definitely pick up this fabulous four and a half  star ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ 💫 read!!

Excerpt:

**ELI**

I’m a fun guy.

Some might say . . . neat.

A solid, trustworthy good time.

If you’re looking to have an amusing night out, I’m your man.

No drama.

No worries.

Just good old-fashioned fun.

I learned from a young age that life is short, and you have to fucking enjoy every second of it. So my rule is to say yes.

Say yes to as much shit as you can.

Hornsby, want to go to the pub down the street and get wasted with the locals?

Of course.

Hornsby, do you want to go skinny-dipping in the coach’s pool—when he’s home?

Absolutely.

Hornsby, do you want to fly to Vegas on our day off and run up the poker tables?

That’s a hell yes.

Living in the moment, that’s my motto, and up until now, that motto has served me well. It has taken me places I never thought I’d go. It has presented me with opportunities I never thought I would have.

But . . . and that’s a big but, a huge one.

This time, my yes has come back to bite me in the ass.

You see, it all happened on my birthday. We had an off day, high from a big win against the Calgary Barnburners. It was Valentine’s Day—yes, I’m a Valentine’s baby—and we went to the best singles bar in the city that would be crawling with women.

The drinks were flowing.

The conversations were engaging.

And I was by no means calling it a night anytime soon.

That’s when she walked into the bar.

In a hot pink dress that clung to every inch of her curvy body, she styled her platinum-blonde hair into long, silky waves, and the lipstick staining her gorgeous lips matched the color of her dress. There was no doubt about it—she was a total smokeshow.

Every guy she came within a ten-foot radius paused what they were doing to give her a very blatant once-over.

Unmistakably the hottest girl in the bar.

And as she saddled up next to me, unaware of my presence, it felt like the music stopped as she gently placed her clutch on the bar top. Casually, she leaned toward the bartender, her manicured nails drumming along the wood top as she sweetly asked for a gimlet with two lime wedges.

I was entranced.

I was hooked.

I was stolen for the rest of the night.

My mind wanted one thing.

Her.

She had my attention, and no one would steal me away.

No one would stop me.

Because in all honesty, I’ve had my eye on her for a while, ever since I met her two years before.

And that night . . . it was my chance. All excuses, all restrictions, they were tossed to the curb as I laid down the best tool at my disposal to get her to talk to me: it was my birthday.

And fuck, did we have a night. I can still remember the way her dress slid off her body as I held her in my arms. I can still vividly recollect that her lips tasted of lime and danger. And I can still smell her intoxicating perfume floating around me as I drove into her, one pulse after the other until we both came at the same time. Multiple times.

It was one of the best nights of my entire life.

But it had to end because we agreed it would be a one-night thing. So that morning, she slipped away undetected, and we both went back to our daily routine. Eat, sleep, and breathe hockey.

Was it the best birthday present I could ask for?

Absolutely.

Did she fulfill my every goddamn fantasy?

More than I could ever have imagined.

And if she came up to me and asked for more, would I oblige?

I would be hard pressed to say no.

Unfortunately, this isn’t a fairy-tale story of how my one-night stand turned into a romance for the ages, though.

Nope, that would be far too easy. This story, well . . . it exposes me as the man that I am. The man I feel to my very core. This is the story of how I wear the title “Ultimate Fuckup,” because not only did I accidentally get the girl in the hot pink dress pregnant . . .

But I broke bro code.

Because the girl in the hot pink dress is the sister of my teammate . . . and best friend.

Figured I would get straight to the point because how it happened is a mere snippet of the story I have to tell. The real meat and potatoes is what happened after.

Let’s start with how she decided to inform me and Pacey the news . . . together. Imagine that nightmare. I was going into what I thought was a hockey marketing meeting and then BAM! I’m going to be a dad and my best friend/teammate is attempting to imprint my face with his fist.

It wasn’t pretty.

Threats were tossed around, friendships were revoked, and then I was marched up to her apartment, suitcases in hand, and forced to live with her so I could take care of her every need. Given how much I’ve pined for the girl, you would think that wouldn’t be a hardship. Wrong.

This is my one shot to win my teammate back. Pacey is the only family I’ve got, so hooking up with his sister isn’t a mistake I can make twice . . . despite the fact that she’s pregnant with my child.

But with every mood swing, every pair of pants that doesn’t fit right, and every late night run to find the perfect donut, I’m finding it harder and harder not to fall for my best friend’s little sister.

Especially when she kisses me…

Say It’s Forever Excerpt Reveal

A Close Proximity, Single Parent Romance from A.L. Jackson

Coming March 28th

“You matter, Salem. You matter. Look at you, darlin’.”

There was the charm all mixed up with the disorder that was at the heart of this man. 

My chest squeezed and the blood thundered through my veins. 

“Beauty. The meaning of it.” The words fell on a harsh exhale from his lips, and the air that was barely skating up my throat died right there when he slowly toed off the dress shoes he wore. 

Obsidian eyes flashed like a rush of the darkest night, rough as they devoured me from across the space.

Without looking away, he leaned down and peeled the socks from his feet.

I gulped, then I was nearly passing out when he ticked through the buttons on his shirt and peeled that off, too. 

The man was nothing but wide, wide shoulders. Muscle everywhere, bulky on his arms and chest, his abdomen packed, tapering down and narrow at the waist. 

Most all of his skin was covered in ink that seemed to scream the same as the walls, though it remained indistinct in the minimal light cast down from the rafters. 

But I could make out enough to get the intonation.

The pure intimidation. 

Menace and peril and life. 

The mountain of a man stood there for a moment, then he took a step forward. 

Energy rushed across the floor.

He approached like a phantom. Like a painting that had come to life. 

It covered me whole and caressed me in shadows. 

I was right. This man was definitely, definitely dangerous.

There was no question about it then.

And still, I remained there, held in his gaze, feeling the safest I’d ever felt. 

I thought he was coming for me, only he slipped by on his bare feet. 

Desire rippled through on his wake. 

God, that was sexy, too. 

Jud Lawson was an anomaly.

Conflict and peace.

Harmony and dissention. 

A blinding light in the longest night. 

Stealer of heart and sanity and good sense.

Because remaining there on the ground like an offering? 

Posing for him? 

There was no question I’d lost my mind.

His aura rippled through the room as he moved over to the wall that I faced. He pulled an easel closer, and the canvas he set on it looked like it’d been painted over a thousand times. He knelt to open a few jars of paint. 

He picked up a brush and studied me.

I trembled beneath his watch.

“Beauty,” he rumbled. “Second I saw you out in the rain. Thought I had to be imagining things. Hallucinating.” 

“I was terrified,” I admitted, our voices dancing through the condensed air. 

Louder than they should be. 

The thrumming of our hearts was palpable.

Frantic beats that echoed against the other. 

A smirk ticked at the corner of his sexy mouth, then it slipped when he glanced at me then to the canvas. He began to paint. Quick, sweeping strokes, as if the images fell from him without thought. “I felt your fear, Salem. I felt your desperation. Wonder if I felt it then, that we were bound to be more than strangers. Wonder if I knew you were supposed to be on the back of my bike that night. Wonder if I knew you were going to become something that mattered in my life.”

A Million Kisses In Your Lifetime Release Blitz & Review

A Million Kisses in Your Lifetime by Monica Murphy is now live!

Wren Beaumont is many things.

Beautiful.
Smart.
Sweet.
Innocent.

At Lancaster Prep, the girls love her. They all want to be her friend. Only I see Wren for who she really is.

A repressed little virgin who keeps her feelings locked up so tight she’s probably close to bursting. She thinks she’s above us all.

Even me.

I shouldn’t be drawn to her. She’s not my type.

Until we’re forced to work together in class and realize we might have more things in common than we originally thought. Soon enough I find myself completely obsessed. I will do anything for this girl to make her fall in love with me.

Anything.

My Review

Monica Murphy perfectly captures everything and so much more that I love about the NA, the High School Seniors, Virgin Heroine, Enemies-to-lovers genre. The love story between Wren Beaumont and Crew Lancaster is the perfect blend of a little angst, a little bully, a lot unexpected. With plenty of sweet, swoony and sexy with a beautiful poignance and magical wonder.

Like that of first love and self discovery but also with a fun, flirty and almost dare I say…slightly fairytale-like (at times) feel to it because of the elite world our characters are brought up in and the surprisingly sweet and thoughtful ways in which we see our young Crew trying to romance Wren. It makes him seem older, yet still appearing the young and playful highschool senior he is. 

This is such a sweet love story and a great story of character growth. Wren has such a sense of self worth and high expectations for herself. I love that even when she grows closer to Crew he does not change those things about her but is a source of encouragement for her. While she feels the pressures from society, her family, from friends, she has a very strong sense of self awareness and will do what SHE feels is best for her in the end. 

With Crew we see her bring the more serious side out of this campus king, the playboy. When that happens he is truly dream  book boyfriend goals for sure. He was the perfect pairing for Wren as he brings out some sass and feistiness in her where she never used to have any bite and would just take everything others would say to her. I absolutely loved their banter back and forth. 

Crew at first comes across as arrogant and seems as though he can have anyone he wants and maybe Wren would be just a challenge for him but it is super clear from early on that it’s so much more for him. The little things he does for his “Birdy”, the ways he goes about getting to know her, and finding out what is important to her. It legit melted this gals heart. SWOON Y’all!! 🥰

So this might have been a relatively slow burn but it had some excellent dirty talkin’!!

Loved,Loved,and Devoured every second of this book from the start to the end. A Million Kisses In Your Lifetime is not to be missed. Would read this A Million Times in MY Lifetime!! I need A Million Stars!

Beyond the Team Release Blitz & Review




Title: Beyond the Team
Series: Out of Reach #4
Author: Kaylee Ryan
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: March 8, 2022

BLURB
Griffin


All it takes is four days to change my carefully planned-out life. Four days to fall for Peyton Monroe. Four days to convince her to give me… us a chance.

Before her, baseball was the center of my world. Being the best. Getting a full-ride scholarship. Getting drafted. Going pro. But from the moment my frisbee lands at her feet on the beach, I can’t stop thinking about her.

She’s beautiful, funny, smart… and lives thirteen hours away. Long-distance love is a complication I should avoid, but staying away from Peyton is not an option. This goes beyond the team and my love of the game.

Peyton

I’m looking to get away, not searching for love. But it all but lands at my feet on spring break anyway. A beach full of hot guys, and of course I find myself falling for a handsome baseball player.

Griffin Anthony’s charming smile draws me in. We fall hard and fast, but when it’s time to say goodbye, he tries to convince me that we can make this work long distance.

Now I’m torn between following tradition and playing it safe or throwing out the rule book and following my heart across the miles. He wants me to trust our connection. Can I risk my heart?

My Review

I absolutely love an insta-attraction, a meet on vacation romance. Add in a little long-distance, sports romance and you’ve got a delicious mix of the perfect story, ones like Peyton and Griffin’s. 

From the very first time they saw each other they had instant chemistry, making for a fun, flirty, sweet and swoony tale. I just loved how instantly they felt a connection even if they felt like they needed to fight it because of distance and other factors. 

I love how family and friends was once again such a big theme throughout this book as we are used to with this series. Griffin and Peyton were loyal, loveable and just really good people. Just wanted them to get together. It was refreshing to have a book boyfriend that was a sweetheart, good to his momma and talked a little dirty. So HAWT!! 

This was just enough a sweet, swoony and steamy story to keep me engaged and entertained from start to finish. Fans of a low angst  sports romance with real and relatable characters grab this series and especially Beyond The Team today!! Five Fastball Stars!!⚾️ ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

The Billionaire Release Blast & Review

 

The Billionaire by Marni Mann is now live!

 

I’ve always been a good girl.

But the second I walk into the hotel bar, I see temptation.

The man sitting there is delicious. Older. Experienced. Once our eyes meet, I know I’m not walking away unscathed. I’ve heard about men like Jenner Dalton–richer than God and hotter than sin. He’s got heartbreak written all over him.

But it only takes fifteen minutes before we’re headed up to his room.

I’ve never done anything like this before, but something tells me he’s worth it. Every swipe of his tongue feels electric, every kiss sets me on fire, and his experience has me begging for more.

And more.

And more.

In one week, I’ll return to college in Miami.

He’ll go back to being LA’s most eligible billionaire.

The miles and years between us are just too many for this to mean anything.

So, between now and then, I plan to spend every moment being anything but good …

My Review

Marni Mann has blown me away with Jo and Jenner. This deliciously dirty age gap, forbidden romance is everything I was looking for in my life right now. 

From Jenner and Jo’s sexy meet cute to them kickin things right off from there with explosive chemistry they will captivate you with their down and dirty playfulness, witty banter and swoony steam. 

Jo is beautiful, sweet, fun, playful and mature. She’s about to graduate from college and is ready to make her mark on the world. There is just something about Jenner that caught her eye from the get go and she had to have him. Jenner is this perfect blend of successful, alpha, swoony and oh so hot. 

This couples journey from a strings free type of arrangement to falling hard and fast will keep you entertained and engaged with its every little detail designed to have you obsessing over Jo and Jenner. The dynamics of just how forbidden a romance this particular book is unfolded as the story did. It definitely made for an unexpected twist that I didn’t see coming and I loved it! 

Four fan yourself flirty and fantastic stars! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
