SYNOPSIS

The first week in my new city starts out about the way I expected. Lots of unpacking. Learning to navigate life with a new roommate. The buzz of excitement that I can be an entirely new person…and throw my restrictive past right out the window.

Who knew everything would change in one night?

Mr. Sexy Businessman and I start chatting at the local bar. Soon chatting turns in to flirting. Flirting turns into kissing…. And ends with the best sex of my life. He is so not my type, he’s far too in charge, but I can’t deny the explosive chemistry. The affair starts out normal enough, but then we’re both feeling totally out of control. Part of me wants to run for the hills… but another, secret part, wants to stay and ride the blissful insanity into the scary unknown.

Synopsis
Go-getter Skye Delaney’s sights are set on the office of LA City Manager, but when her path is blocked by a cloud of corruption at the Mayor’s office, she is forced to reevaluate her ambitious goals. A seat on the City Council is the next logical step, but as they say, politics makes for strange bedfellows. Fellows like Kyle Armstrong.
Kyle barges into Skye’s life without warning and has her yearning for more. But when she discovers he’s running for the same City Council seat she is, Skye is faced with some big decisions.
Does she give up on her political dreams for a man? Or is Kyle the man to make all her dreams come true?
*****
Misadventures is a romantic series of spicy standalone novels, each written or co-written by some of the best names in romance. The stories are scandalous, refreshing, and, of course, incredibly sexy. They’re the perfect bedside read, a ‘quick blush’ for the reader who loves a page-turning romance.

ReviewGorgeous & ambitious, Skye Delaney has her dreams right in front of her; she doesn’t have time for Kyle Armstrong’s antics, or the way he’s beginning to make her feel as though she could actually have a life – and love – outside of her job.

This is an enjoyable read. I liked the banter in this one. The secondary characters really enhanced the plot, as well. I only wished we had a look inside Kyle’s head. Still, a good read.

Release & Review Blitz: Sinners Are Winners (KPD Motorcycle Patrol #5) by Lani Lynn Vale ~ 4.5 stars




 

He saw her from across a crowded ballpark and knew she was about to change his life. 
Yes, he realizes just how cliché that really is, but the moment his eyes locked on her, he knew that she was the one.
At least, the one that royally screwed him over. The one responsible for his demotion and the subsequent disciplinary action taken against him before he’d even gotten out of the probationary period with Kilgore Police Department.
It all started with a kiss.
***
Saylor Rae Spada tried to mind her business. She also tried to not get involved in petty disputes.
However, from the moment she saw him sitting next to her at a professional baseball game, a game she didn’t even want to be at but was dragged to by her blind date, she couldn’t look away.
Then the kiss cam came on, featuring none other than her and the handsome stranger.
Without missing a beat, he kissed her.
Then her blind date decided to pull a knife and try to stab him.
From that point forward, she’s done nothing but cause him trouble.
Trouble that he’s starting to find increasingly adorable.

Review

Just before Saylor is to leave Kilgore for good, she meets a man that makes her wish that she had more time – the same man whose career she managed to unwittingly torpedo months earlier. When her wish is granted, she finds that old grudges have no place in their lives, but may still have the power to ruin their new romance.

This is another fun, steamy and intriguing read by Lani Lynn Vale. I love that her characters aren’t cookie cutter perfect; they have quirks and flaws. I love how she manages to pair her characters up with persons who seem so perfect.

I am looking forward to the next installment.

Three reasons why rebound s-e-x with my hot neighbor is a very bad idea.

1. My life is already complicated enough
2. He knows I wear Batman undies (please don’t ask)
3. He’s older, sophisticated and so hot he makes me go weak at the knees

I know that’s more than three. But it still didn’t stop me.

On paper, we’re the worst kind of match.
He’s rich.
I’m . . . not. My second job is pet sitting!

He says we’re friends.
I say barely, but I do love those benefits . . .

The man rocks my world.
But he’s so not the one.

Which is unfortunate,
Because he’s also the one who got me pregnant.

Review

I thought I loved Bolivia, but James & Miranda have stolen the show.

Miranda is young, yet cannot be called naive. Still reeling from a breakup, she’s not eager to be in a new relationship, yet James somehow manages to sneak past her walls – repeatedly – through clever manipulations. She’s worried by what society might think about them, but something always keeps her coming back 😉

I liked James immediately. I saw James as the deeper feeler/thinker of the group when I first met him in “To Have and Hate”. He was also one to persist until he got what he wanted. These two personality traits were amplified in “(Not) The One”. The mix of confidence & sophistication he had going on was sexy. I also loved the way he would draw Miranda in with humor. He had a sort of wit that made me wish he was real.

I recommend this steamy yet sweet-in-its-own-way romance. I look forward to reading Griff’s story.

Falling for the enemy has never been so deliciously complicated in this standalone romance where a sexy single dad meets his unexpected match! Get ready for all the feels!

Never have I ever been so infuriated by a man I wanted to kiss.

They say opposites attract, but I beg to differ. Combust is more like it. Because every single time I talk to Zach Nolan, I see red.

The too-good-looking, too-smart, too-effortlessly charming single dad who works down the hall from me has turned getting under my skin into a sport. Call it the battle of wits between the wedding planner and the divorce attorney.

Trouble is, when we’re forced into closer quarters planning an engagement party for our best friends, I start to see his other sides.

And I fear I’m falling for the enemy.

***

I’m not out to make friends. My goals are simple — fight till the end for my clients, and my family.

The last thing I need is a vibrant, outgoing, snarky, and surprisingly big-hearted wedding planner to spend my precious free time with…except, watching Piper bond with my daughter just might break down the cinder block walls I’ve built around my heart these last few years.

Second chances don’t come around for guys like me…or do they?

Blog Tour & Chapter Reveal: Hate the Game (Love Games #1) by Winter Renshaw ~ 4.5 stars

Amazon 

Talon Gold is a lot of things: good at football, bad at love. Obsessed with scoring, refuses to play by the rules. Cruel. Relentless. Brilliant. Intoxicatingly attractive.

Despite his demanding reputation and propensity for being the most arrogant a-hole ever to strut Pacific Valley University’s picturesque campus, everyone wants a piece of him: coaches, scouts, and pretty little campus fangirls with pouty lips and perfect top knots.

But Talon … he only wants a piece of me.

And four straight years of infuriating rejection means I’m almost positive he’d take a night with me over a national championship trophy.

But I’m no fool—he only wants me because he can’t have me. And with graduation approaching, time is running out. He’s more desperate than ever, pulling out all the stops and doing everything in his power to get in my good graces.

They say, “Don’t hate the player, hate the game.”

But to that I say, “Why not both?”

I have my reasons …

Sorry, BMOC. This victory? Not going to happen.

Review

I enjoyed Irie & Talon’s story.

I liked their romantic journey, and Talon’s determination to ensure that she realised that they belonged together. I liked that she didn’t give in to his advances immediately, but that she also gave him a chance, even though she had her walls waay up high. The epilogue was sweet, with the perfect ending for this couple.

I liked that this book was something unlike what I expected from Winter Renshaw, yet entertaining and intriguing in its own right. I wasn’t ever bored. I look forward to more in this vein and series from Winter Renshaw.

I voluntarily read & reviewed an ARC of this book.

“Irie, right?” Talon’s long legs stretch wide, pushing into my space, his expensive sneaker stopping two inches from my knock-off Golden Goose sneakers.

Cute.

He’s pretending like he might not know my name. He’s pretending like he hasn’t been trying to hook up with me since the fall semester of our freshmen year when I got roped into attending a party at some beer-scented three-story on frat house row and he cornered me the way a mountain lion corners prey, carefully stalking me first from all angles then making smooth and deliberate moves until he positions himself to go in for the kill.

Fortunately for me, his hunting skills were still in need of some fine-tuning back then.

I got away.

And I’ve gotten away every time since.

The auditorium hums with small talk. My body hums with electric amusement. Over the years, this has become a sort of game between us. Cat and mouse. Offense and defense. He’s tried every strategy in the book, but I’ve managed to stick to the one that always works—cold, coy, aloof, and uninterested.

“All right, dudes and dudettes,” the professor rests his hands on his hips, rocking back and forth on his heels as he scans the room. “I’m Dr. Longmire, but you can call me Rich if you want.”

The girl to my left giggles to her friend. “He’s not a regular professor, he’s a cool professor.”

“Welcome to Anthro 101.” Dr. Longmire—Rich—twists the shark tooth necklace that hangs on a leather cord down his tanned chest as he paces the room. “We meet Mondays and Wednesdays from eight to nine with recitation on Fridays. You should have received your syllabus in your email over the weekend. If you need a paper copy, I’ve got a few on the desk up here. That said, I’ve been asked to remind you all that PVU is striving to become a paperless university. Please only print things when absolutely necessary.”

One student gathers his things in a hurry and dashes out the side door. He’s probably in the wrong classroom. It happens and it’s no big deal, but it doesn’t stop a group of meatheads in the corner from finding it hilarious and yelling out, “Loser!” just before the door swings shut.

Professor Longmire cracks a joke about how he doesn’t usually scare people off until after he goes through his entire spiel.

No one laughs.

“You have a good winter break?” Talon asks me, leaning close and keeping his voice low. He’s trying to feign intimacy, trying to act like we’re more than the acquaintances we’ve only ever been. Smooth. But I see through it.

“The best,” I lie, sparing him the details before pointing at the front of the room. “If you don’t mind …”

His heavy stare weighs on me, and a blanket of heat covers my skin in the seconds before the steady trot of my heart turns into an all-out gallop.

This happens every time—the ongoing war between my mind and body every time he comes around.

I’d be lying if I said his attention didn’t flatter the hell out of me. I mean, come on. I’m only human—a mere mortal myself. I just happen to have a hell of a lot more self-control than the average SoCal blondie strutting PVU’s seaside campus. I appreciate the attention, but by no means am I naïve enough to think there’s anything special about it.

Talon wants to screw me.

And he only wants to screw me because he can’t.

Nothing more, nothing less.

“Hey. You have a spare pen?” Talon asks with zero shame, his cinnamon-scented whisper tickling my eardrum.

Dipping down into my bag, I retrieve a hot pink gel pen and hand it over without so much as making eye contact.

From my periphery, I watch as he examines it for a second before his full lips mouth a quick thank you. The garish color doesn’t seem to faze him, doesn’t so much as threaten his jock itch masculinity.

He flips to a clean page in his notebook and concentrates on the screen ahead.

“Now, I’ve been teaching here for over thirty years,” Professor Longmire prattles on as he paces the front of the room. “I’ve been around long enough to know that these eight AM Monday classes are a pain in the you-know-what. I know not everyone is going to go to every single class. I know that there’ll be times you’re hung over or you over-sleep or what have you. Don’t email me. Don’t send me your sob story or made up excuses. I don’t want to hear it. Now some of the younger professors, they post lecture notes on the class website. But I don’t have time for that. So here’s what you’re going to do. Everyone’s going to have an accountability buddy.”

A what …?

“I want you to each to turn to someone next to you,” he says. “That person is going to be your go-to when you need a copy of lecture notes. That person is also going to be your study partner. Their success is your success and vice-versa. Just because this is Anthro 101 doesn’t mean it’s an easy class. In fact, a quarter of you will drop out before the end of the semester, and the majority of you probably won’t walk out of here with A’s.”

Two people—a guy and a girl from opposite ends of the room—gather their bags and show themselves out, heads tucked.

“Aaaand there we go. That’s when I usually scare them away.” Longmire laughs at his own joke before scanning the audience. “Anyway, I’ll give you all a moment to find your partner. Don’t make a big deal of it, don’t overthink it. Just pick someone—anyone—close by.”

I gather a sea-salted lungful of air and take in my surroundings. The two girls beside me are clasping their hands together like a couple of junior high besties. The guys in the row ahead are already exchanging phone numbers, as are the guy and girl to their right. Within seconds, I surmise that everyone else around me seems to be spoken for—everyone, that is, except Talon.

Straightening my shoulders, I angle my body toward Talon and maintain a neutral expression.

The moment our eyes catch, he bites his lower lip and flashes a cockeyed smirk. “Guess it’s us.”

My stomach somersaults, but I play it cool. “Lucky me.”

“Yeah.” He laughs through his nose, his perfect white teeth flashing as he grins. “Lucky you.”

Wall Street Journal and #1 Amazon bestselling author Winter Renshaw is a bona fide daydream believer. She lives somewhere in the middle of the USA and can rarely be seen without her trusty Mead notebook and ultra portable laptop. When she’s not writing, she’s living the American dream with her husband, three kids, and the laziest puggle this side of the Mississippi.

Synopsis
Senior Detective Cat Day has one hard and fast rule about dating: no cops. They live hard and die young—a truth she’s faced every day since her fiancé’s tragic death several years ago. But when rookie Jace Sutton shows up to work the same burglary investigation, she feels desire she hasn’t felt in years.
Jace knows what he wants the minute Detective Day strolls onto his crime scene in heels and a pencil skirt tailored by God himself. He wants to thaw the legendary Ice Queen, and it only takes one hot, dirty night for Jace to realize he wants more. Much, much more.
But more is the last thing Cat wants from any cop—especially a playboy rookie like Jace. As the burglary investigation heats up and he repeatedly puts himself in danger, Cat must ask herself if Jace will be as reckless with her heart as he is with his life.

Sierra is a voracious reader of all things including the smuttiest smut, young adult, piles of non-fiction for research, and everything Bill Bryson (especially on audio).
She loves writing the dirtiest things that she can think of, King Arthur, sparkling water, Tarot, coffee, leggings, and learning new words daily.

Her previous jobs have included firing ceramics, teaching living history lessons in a one-room schoolhouse in full, 1908-approved school marm attire, and working as a librarian for several years—not in that order

She lives in the Kansas City area with her hot cop husband, two children, and two giant dogs. (And two cats, but they’re so naughty we don’t talk about them.)

The social media she cares about the most are Spotify and (her very very NSFW) Tumblr. Following her in those places is a true love language, indeed.

Review

This is a really good collection of sweet, fun & steamy romances. There isn’t one that I didn’t like. Sure, I felt like strangling some authors when I realised that I only was getting a sneak peek, but at least I have something to look forward to in the coming months.

I recommend this collection, and look forward to more like this anthology.

About Mandi Beck:
Mandi Beck has been an avid reader all of her life. A deep love for books always had her jotting down little stories on napkins, notebooks, and her hand. As an adult she was further submerged into the book world through book clubs and the epicness of social media. It was then that she graduated to writing her stories on her phone and then finally on a proper computer.

A wife, mother to two rambunctious and somewhat rotten boys, and stepmom to two great girls away at college, she shares her time with her husband in Chicago where she was born and raised. Mandi is a diehard hockey fan and blames the Blackhawks when her deadlines are not met even though her favorite hockey player calls her…mom.

About Rochelle Paige:
I absolutely adore reading—always have and always will. When I was growing up, my friends used to tease me when I would trail after them, trying to read and walk at the same time. If I have downtime, odds are you will find me reading or writing.

I am the mother of two wonderful sons who have inspired me to chase my dream of being an author. I want them to learn from me that you can live your dream as long as you are willing to work for it.

When I told my mom that my new year’s resolution was to self-publish a book in 2013, she pretty much told me, “About time!”

About Teagan Hunter:
I’m a Missouri-raised gal, but currently live in North Carolina with my US Marine husband and 9-year-old dog. I spend my days begging him for a cat, and I survive off coffee, pizza, and sarcasm. When I’m not writing, you can find me binge-watching various TV shows, especially Supernatural and One Tree Hill. I like cold weather, buy more paperbacks than I’ll ever read, and I never say no to brownies.

Writing is my passion, and this is just the beginning of my journey.

Blog Tour: Make Me Fall (Bayshore #2) by Ember Leigh ~ 4.5 stars

Today we have the blog tour for Ember Leigh’s MAKE ME FALL! Check it out and be sure to grab your copy today!

Title: Make Me Fall

Author: Ember Leigh

Genre: Contemporary Romance

About Make Me Fall:

There’s one rule in my family.

Stay away from the Daly brothers.

We were raised to know them as users. Manipulators. But I only ever saw Connor as the enigmatic senior hottie who dropped into fifth period to teach us about the perils of drunk driving.

So when my first big girl job out of college ends up with us working at the same company, it’s heart throb city all over again. Except he’s way ahead of the game. Successful, talented, put together. I’m just a frumpy twenty-something in a quarter life crisis who doesn’t know a glue stick from a makeup highlighter.

He would never want me, even though he’s all I ever wanted in secret. So when we cross paths one night at the bar and one drink leads to another, he slaps me with an offer I can’t refuse.

Accompany him back to Bayshore, flight included.

Only stipulation? Pose as his girlfriend.

Our families will flip, but I’m not strong enough to say no to those baby blues, especially if it means I’ll have a chance to spend the next two weeks with my adolescent heart throb.

review:

The enemies-to-lovers trope takes a different slant in this second installment of the Bayshore series.

Kinsley Cabana has always had eyes for Connor Daly, but their families are sworn enemies. Fast forward years later, and they both work at the same soul-sucking company. Kinsley is sure he doesn’t remember her – until a drunken proposition to pose as his girlfriend is delivered. As expected, fake feelings turn into real ones, but Ember Leigh makes the journey worth it.

There’s more tension, drama & sibling rivalry in this installment. It’s made me anxious – in a good way, of course – to read book 3.

I voluntarily read & reviewed an ARC of this book.

Blog Tour: On the Rocks (Kingston Brothers #1) by Isabel Lucero ~ 5 stars

Amazon

You learn a lot about people pouring their drinks and London is what I would consider a regular.

Like clockwork, she’s been coming into my bar twice a week for the last year.

Besides her name, I’ve learned that she’s witty, beautiful, and unfortunately… taken.

She’s in a relationship with a guy that I’m pretty sure doesn’t deserve her.

Respecting that is the only thing stopping me from figuring out the things I really want to know.

Things like, what her body feels like against mine, or how she tastes on my tongue.

But one evening, everything changes. London comes in and tells me that they broke up.

One drink leads to two, and she finally confesses that this attraction isn’t one sided.

Our slow burn is about to get blazing hot.

I wasn’t just looking for a one-night stand, not with a girl like her.

But next thing you know, the ex is back. He’s in my bar, sitting next to her.

We try to act like there isn’t a connection between us.

Like our bodies weren’t made for each other and we didn’t set each other aflame with a single kiss.

Every time I look at her, I see the flash in her eyes that tell me she’s remembering it too.

Re-living every delicious second of our time spent together on top of this very bar.

The problem is now that I know what she tastes like, I want more.

On the rocks. It’s how London prefers her drinks, and the current state of her relationship.

And I’m about to shake things up, because I’ll be damned if I let her get away.

Review

On the Rocks is a heartwarming, emotional story.

London & Royce are friends who are attracted to each other, yet just that bit afraid of what the acknowledgment & consummation of that attraction could mean for their future. As their friends and family look on from the periphery, the couple tries to find out which path to take.

I liked the entire cast of characters, and found this to be a great start to the series. There’s fun, laughter and quite a few “aww” moments that all helped to make this book unputdownable (lol) for me. I read it eagerly; excited for what was next.

I recommend it, and can’t wait for more of this series!
