A sexy new forbidden romance from #1 NYT Bestselling Author Lauren Blakely…

It should have been a simple play…

She needed a football player to step up and be the star for a charity calendar. I needed a sharp and savvy publicist to manage a brand-new sponsorship deal. I scratched her back. She scratched mine. And oh hell, did Jillian ever drag her nails down my back on one hell of a hot night. Okay fine, it was several hot nights on the road.

Now we’re back in town and it’s time to set the play clock back to when we were simply player and publicist. Given the way the last few years have gone, I can’t risk this deal, so it’s hands off for us once again. Trouble is, I want more than than just another night with her.

What’s a guy to do when he’s always been most likely to score, but the woman he’s falling for is just out of bounds?

I don’t date players.
And I definitely don’t sleep with players.
And I absolutely don’t fall for a certain player when I get to know him and learn he’s more than just sexy — he’s clever, funny and has a heart as big as his . .. well, you get my drift.

But my job is at stake, and I can’t afford to lose that as well as my heart. The problem is, I think I’ve already lost that game.

What’s a girl to do when the clock is running out, but the man she’s falling for is off limits?

MOST LIKELY TO SCORE is a brand new standalone sports romance written in dual POV!

“Most Likely to Score is another flawlessly executed story that’ll have readers laughing, sighing, blushing, and swooning as a publicist and an athlete get their shot at a Happily Ever After.” –Yvette-Nose Stuck in a Book

MY REVIEW

This book blew me away. I could tell it was going to be pretty good from the first page. Jones’ internal banter was hilarious!! I totally fell for him even before he started putting the moves on Jillian. His ability to find the lighter side of things never made him seem immature – just a guy who knew how to have fun.

Jones stole my heart further & then completely with how considerate he was of Jillian. Her reputation, success & happiness meant a lot to him, so watching him struggle to hide his feelings for her definitely increased his appeal for me.

I enjoyed the way the story flowed, even from Jillian’s POV. The author took a forbidden romance trope and made it into a story that I truly, truly enjoyed. I wholeheartedly recommend this title.

I voluntarily read & reviewed an ARC of this book.

EXCERPT

~Jillian~

He runs his hand through his hair, flashing a lopsided grin then a wink. “Sorry. I meant are you my personal PR person now?”

That word zips through me like an electric charge. A light gust of wind blows my hair across my cheeks, and I tuck the strands behind my ear, grateful for the temporary distraction courtesy of San Francisco’s windy morning. I shiver lightly from the chill. “Yes, that seems to be the case, and I’m happy to do it.”

He cocks his head to the side. “Are you like my babysitter?”

My jaw drops. “What? No. No. No. That’s ridiculous. I’m not a babysitter.”

He arches a brow. “A nanny?”

I smirk. “Jones, I would hope you’ve outgrown the need for a nanny.”

“That’s up for debate, it seems. But maybe you’re my governess?”

I roll my eyes and gesture to the car at the curb. “I’m not your nanny, I’m not your babysitter, and I’m definitely not your governess. I’m here to help you create the best image possible. I can market, publicize, and help you manage putting the best foot forward,” I say, my tone earnest, my meaning important. “I believe in what I do. I know you’re a great guy, and I want the world to see what I’ve seen in the last couple days.”

“Yeah?”

“That’s why I said yes when Ford asked for my help. I’m not interested in being anyone’s au pair. I am very interested, though, in showing this city what good things our team does on and off the field. Including you.” I take a breath and try to read him. To understand what’s beneath the teasing. I think I know what it is. He wants a choice. “But if you don’t want me to help out, I’ll step back and we can stick to just the calendar. I told Ford I’d do this for your new deal, because I want to be the one to help you if you need it, and it’s the kind of help I can give. Since you signed the contract yesterday, and the folks at Paleo Pet are local, they want to stop by the shoot later today. Take some pictures, chat, and so on. I’m happy to be there by your side the whole time, making sure you’re comfortable with everything, and you’re represented in the best way possible. But if those aren’t your wishes, and if it isn’t what you need, then I’ll be hands-off. I hold up my palms as if I’m backing away.

In a heartbeat, he grabs my wrists. Possessively. A thrill rushes through me, like a drumbeat pulsing in my veins. I look away from him briefly. I can’t make eye contact when he does this, when he touches me. If I do, he’ll know. He’ll realize I’m just like all the other women who fling panties at him, who chase him down in bars, who line up at the players’ entrance to become his football floozy for the night. I won’t ever be someone’s football floozy, and I can’t let him see for a second that I want some of the same things those other women want from him. Him.

“Don’t be hands-off,” he says, his voice soft.

Hands down, my favorite thing in the world is to score. Touchdowns.

Don’t let the fact that I’m the leading pick in the MOST LIKELY TO SCORE charity auction fool you. These days, I’m only a player on the field. I’ve kept my pants zipped all season long — and it has been long — because nothing’s more important than leading my team to victory every week. Except maybe escaping from the team owner’s recently-widowed and handsy-as-hell sister who’s dead set on winning more than a date with me.

Enter Violet and a well-placed Hail Mary.

She’s my best friend’s sister with a smile as sweet as cherry pie and a mind that runs quicker than the 40-yard-dash. After Violet saves the day with the highest bid, I don’t even give her a two-minute warning before I kiss her in front of the whole crowd and then announce that she’s my girlfriend. Which would be fine except my agent tells me we have to keep up the act while he’s negotiating my contract.
Violet takes one for the team and pretends to be mine, but our boyfriend-girlfriend scrimmage quickly turns into a full contact sport, and I want it to go into overtime. The problem is — I’ve been riding the bench for years.

How can a guy like me, who finally has a chance to prove his worth on the field, convince the girl she’s most valuable to his heart?

Genres: Adult, Contemporary, Military, Romantic Suspense

Preorder for 99¢: Amazon | Barnes & Noble | Kobo | iBooks | Google Play

I thought I knew better than to make the same mistake twice.

To say I’ve never had good taste in men in as an understatement.

When I met brooding Marine Ford Collier, I was certain he’s different than anyone else I’ve ever dated. He was honorable, charming, and sinfully dangerous in all the right ways.

But I’ve been wrong before.

My first lover ruined my life. And Ford may destroy my future.

My heart tells me he’s innocent, but the facts tell me I’m wrong. Again.

Going against the only family I have left could mean losing it all for a man who may be a traitor.

Synopsis:

Technically, you aren’t supposed to fall in love with your best friend’s girl.

But if we’re talking technicalities, he wasn’t supposed to be cheating on her every other weekend, either.

The day I met Mira York, I knew she was off-limits. But after months of stealing side-glances while he ruined the most beautiful woman I’d ever seen, I realized there wasn’t a rule in the world I wouldn’t break to make her mine.

She chose him anyway.

I wasn’t sure how I’d ever move on, but bitterness turned into fuel for my fire.

Without Mira, I thrived.

Until seventeen years later, when she showed back up, begging for protection from the very same man she’d left me for all those years earlier.

Now, it was my turn to choose.

And she wasn’t going to like my answer.

THRIVE takes place seventeen years AFTER a love triangle.

Emily—Thank you for joining me for dinner tonight. And for agreeing to my proposal, as ludicrous as it is. Desperate times call for fake engagements. At least in my family.
I am attaching the contract we discussed. Our lawyers asked that I highlight the following clauses:
  • The engagement shall last ninety days
  • Both parties are to appear genuinely in love at all royal appearances
  • Beyond required public displays of affection, there shall be no contact of any kind between the parties
The first half of your payment will be deposited into your account upon the signing of this contract. Be sure to note your ring size. We would like to make prompt delivery of the family emerald. The Queen and I thank you in advance for your discretion.
Cheers,
Kit
P.S.—Sorry to hear about your divorce. Your ex sounds like a proper knob head.
P.P.S.—You looked stunning tonight.

MY REVIEW

This was a fun, heartwarming read. The entire cast of characters makes it easy to read, understand and fall in love with the story line. Not only did the characters put on a great show, but the writing was superb. It was hard to put down this book – even to sleep.

Prince/King Kit is a darling, really. He’s the stuff Prince Charmings are made of – the entire package. I loved him immediately, and hurt for him when Emily couldn’t see how all in he was. Emily was a tad finicky, but I grew to love her all the same.

I will definitely be checking out Ms. Peterson’s other work, and look forward to Aly & Rob’s story in this series.

Title: An Uphill Battle

Author: LK Farlow

Genre: Contemporary Romance

About An Uphill Battle:

Azalea Barnes has hated Drake Collins since the day he broke her teenaged heart.

Fast forward almost seven years later and her libido still hasn’t gotten the memo.

Now they’re frenemies… with benefits.

Which suits Azalea just fine. She gets what her body craves while keeping her heart safe.

Kind of.

Mostly.

Drake has loved Azalea since the day they met. He knows that she’s his forever. Too bad she only sees him as a good time. He wants more. Needs more.

If only he could convince her that it’s real this time. He’s more determined than ever to prove to Azalea that chemistry like theirs doesn’t exist only in the bedroom.

 

The odds may be against Drake, but he’s prepared for an uphill battle.

Amazon

Exclusive Excerpt:

After two miles of running in silence, void of all our usual small talk and bullshit, Simon slows us to a slow jog. “Azalea?”

He never was one to beat around the bush, and he’s certainly never hesitated on calling me on my shit. “Yeah, Azalea.”

“Y’all ever gonna get together?”

I scrub a hand over my face. “Us getting together ain’t the problem. It’s staying together. She’s got it stuck in her pretty little head that I don’t want strings.” He shows no reaction to the fact that I just shared that Azalea and I have been sleeping together. Odd. Shaking my head, I grunt in annoyance. “Girl’s got it wrong. I want more than strings. I want chains.”

“Hmm.”

Here we go. “Hmm what, Simon?”

“Well, and this is just a thought, but have you ever actually told her you want more?”

“I mean, I guess?”

“You don’t sound so sure. You either have or you haven’t.”

“I’ve told her we were a long time coming and that I’ve always wanted her, and just today, I told her how good we are together. So, yeah, I’ve told her.” My voice comes out strong and confident. Too bad Simon’s about to crush that confidence like a tin can.

“You’re an idiot. That’s not telling her how you feel. That’s telling her you like the way she makes you feel, if you catch my drift.” Judging from the confused look on my face, Simon can see, clearly, that I’m not catching his drift. “Dude, you basically made it sound like you enjoy fucking her.”

Is he right? I mean, I do, but . . . “Aw, hell.” Yeah, he’s totally right. “I’m such an asshole.”

An Uphill Battle

 

MY REVIEW

I wasn’t sure if I would like this book, much less give a positive rating, but by the time I finished reading, I did find that I quite enjoyed some parts of it.

Drake & Azalea’s chemistry is off the charts hot, but they can’t seem to get along at all! Most of the book is centered on Azalea’s inability to see that they could have a HEA. I found that there was a lot of unnecessary drama that could have been avoided if the main characters just TALKED TO EACH OTHER!

This is the first book in the series I’ve read. I liked the camaraderie & friendships the entire cast of cast characters has, and look forward to reading more in this series.

I voluntarily read & reviewed an ARC of this book.

Redeeming Lottie

by Melissa Ellen
Publication Date: February 1, 2018
Genres: Adult, Contemporary, Romance

Preorder: Amazon | iBooks | Kobo | Release Notification

Things I never planned on happening in my life: Getting married, being a mother to a house full of kids, and returning to my small hometown of Billingsley, Texas.

I especially never planned on seeing Tucker Monroe again.
Sexy smile. Country charm.
A man and a life I left behind for a reason.

The only plan I had for myself was my career.

A buyer for one of the largest high end department stores was the only commitment I had time for. The only one I was willing to make.

Now, being left with no choice but to return to Billingsley, I’m finding it hard to remember why I left in the first place. Because all that’s on my mind is Tucker.

He is just as sexy. Just as charming.
Just as dangerous as he used to be…

About Melissa Ellen

I’m the author of The Blackwood Series. I grew up as a book worm, reading anything and everything and still try to read at least a book a week. I’ve always had an active imagination. Luckily, I now have time to put it to good use into stories that are constantly swarming around in my head.

When I’m not writing, you can find me working on architecture projects, buried in a book with a glass of wine (or coffee), playing with my adorable son (I’m not partial at all…his adorableness is a fact), laughing with my hot husband (another fact), or tackling my latest DIY project (and by that I mean putting my hot husband to work).

 MY REVIEW

This is a really good debut. It has all the hallmarks of the rocker lifestyle: the drugs, the hype, the drama, the sex. The fact that Luminous is an all-girl group in no way makes the story line weird or awkward. As a matter of fact, it enhances it.

Kaden, aka Mercs, is the typical guy from a small town trying to do the right thing and struggling to take care of his family. Getting a job as the head ELT for Luminous is not only super cool, but an answer to prayer for him. A well-paying job, it could help smooth the way for his entire family’s happiness in the future. After meeting the band’s lead singer, Effa, he realises that there’s more things in life he’s passionate about. When love enters the equation, all sorts of drama begin to crawl out of the woodwork, too. Effa & Mercs have a few obstacles in their path to happiness.

The book moves along fast, so personalities, names, situations & feelings come at you quickly. The chemistry between Effa & Mercs is electric, and the way that they struggle to go slow is so adorable. It works, as the relationship grows, and develops into something deeper than a short term affair.

I wasn’t quite sure that I was going to enjoy this book when I read the first few pages, but Ms. Osborne managed to change my mind rather quickly. You’ll be pleasantly surprised – as was I – to realise how well all the VERY different personalities in the book worked so well with each other. I knew the book was ending in a cliffhanger, but the way it played out was unexpected. I actually thought it was going to go in another direction, so I was surprised, yet fully intrigued and now, fully committed to reading the next installment in the series.

I recommend this book wholeheartedly.

Cover Reveal: Stud by Kelly Siskind

Title: Stud
Author: Kelly Siskind
Genre: Romantic Comedy
Release Date: January 31, 2018 

A down-to-earth carpenter. A Prada loving personal shopper. 

 

A Habitat for Humanity project that erects more than walls…

 


The word “nail” has so many meanings:
Ainsley Hall’s manicured nails belong in the Museum of Modern Art.
The fashionista hammers nails at Habitat for Humanity.
She desperately wants to nail Owen Phillips.
Unfortunately, she mistakenly thinks he’s gay.
Owen’s never-ending divorce has taken a turn from messy to downright vindictive. Yearning for the simpler things in life, like working with his hands, he joins a Habitat build. Turns out he also wants to work over Ainsley Hall…but the confusing bombshell flirts blatantly with other men.
When Ainsley discovers Owen’s true sexuality, their mutual attraction ignites, but he hasn’t shared the extent of his divorce drama. If he can’t disprove his ex’s false allegations, it will take more than hammers and nails (and nailing studs) to keep their walls from caving in.
 

 

“…a sexy and steamy read with loads of flirty and witty banter. Siskind knows how to write characters that have off-the-charts chemistry.” ~ RT Book Reviews


“Kelly has outdone herself with this book!” ~ Blushing Mom Book Reviews



“If you like your stories smart, snappy, and stuffed with sweet emotion (and even sweeter heat), Owen and Ainsley will not disappoint.” ~ Bookgasms Book Blog

 

 
A small-town girl at heart, Kelly moved from the city to open a cheese shop with her husband in northern Ontario.

Cover Reveal: Gentleman Nine by Penelope Ward

We are thrilled to bring you the cover from New York Times bestselling author Penelope Ward. Gentleman Nine releases on February 19th!

 

 

Cover designer: Letitia Hasser, RBA designs
Cover Model: Lucas Garcez
Cover Photography: Sven Jacobsen

 

From New York Times bestselling author Penelope Ward, comes a new, sexy standalone novel.

 

Growing up, the three of us were friends.

He was the nerd.

I was the playboy.

She was the beauty.

 

Deep down, I only ever wanted her. I kept it inside because Rory and I made a pact that our friend, Amber, was off-limits.

He lied.

 

I went off to college, and he got the girl.

Amber never knew how I felt.

They were together for years—before he broke her heart.

 

Through it all and across the miles, she and I casually stayed in touch.

When my job sent me to Boston for a three-month contract position, Amber let me stay in her spare room.

 

Still reeling from her breakup, she’d sworn off men.

One night, I opened her computer to find the shock of my life. She’d hesitantly contacted a male escort company. Afraid to date and get her heart broken again, she was looking for sex with no strings.

Every emotion imaginable ran through me: protectiveness, jealousy—curiosity.

Amber had chosen Gentleman Number Nine and sent him a message.

She opened up to him, confessing, among other things, her physical attraction to her friend— me. But she considered me off-limits—and she thought I was a manwhore. (Ironic, considering the circumstances.)

Eventually, she set up a date to meet Gentleman Nine at a hotel.

When she showed up several nights later to meet him, she got the surprise of her life to see me standing there—with an offer I hoped she wouldn’t refuse.

ARC Review & FB Giveaway: Hot Stuff by Weston Parker ~ 4 stars

HOT STUFF, a small town love story by Weston Parker, is LIVE!

Blurb:

Hot Stuff coverI’ve never had a problem with getting my hands dirty. I prefer it.

Hard work. Long days. Watching my crew create something beautiful from nothing – that’s what I was all about.

A blue-collar construction worker who happens to own the business too.

And things were going great. Life was about my little girl and my business. Until my best friend’s father died.

The funeral was a place of reunion, coming home, and warmth through remembrance until she walked in. My Best Friend’s little sister.

Time stood still.

How in the world had Lauren grown into the cold, hard-ass, beautiful woman that stood before me? Where was the small town girl I thought she would turn out to be?

I’d convinced myself that all I wanted was to be a good father to my little girl, but something else resurrected inside of me seeing Lauren again.

I wanted to be a good husband too.

My Review:

I enjoyed this book. I liked that while it followed the brother’s best friend trope, it was still a little different. I liked that there wasn’t much external drama to the relationship, and that the couple – with just the right amount of conflict – found a way to work through their issues. I liked that we got to see Gage’s struggle to be a good parent. Many books pretend it’s so easy. I also enjoyed the dual POV.

I only wish that we got a little closure on Gage’s business dealings, but this book is a very good read. It kept me riveted from the opening scene. I recommend it.

I voluntarily read & reviewed an ARC of this book.
