Review Blitz: On the Edge by Julia Connors ~ 5 stars

Release Date: May 18

A steamy second-chance romance set in the world of competitive skiing…

 
Once upon a time I had it all: an Olympic gold medal, a career as a professional ski racer, and a happily ever after so close I could almost touch it. Then my perfect life imploded in one tragic weekend. 
 
Five years later I’ve rebuilt my life with the best girlfriends, the perfect new boyfriend, and a new career. Now my ex—the one who wrecked everything five years earlier—is back as the newest member of the National Ski Team and I’m forced to be his physical therapist. 
 
My days are filled with him. He’s constantly shirtless and sweaty and sexy as sin, and trying to make me fall in love with him again. 
 
But I built these walls around my heart for a reason—and his presence is threatening to undo everything I’ve created without him. With the stakes this high and the sexual tension this hot, this could all go so very wrong. 
 
Or, maybe we’re on the edge of getting everything we ever wanted.

Review

“Without love, there’s little purpose to life.”

Jackson has spent the last 5 years getting over her ex, Nate. He left her when she needed him most, breaking every single promise he’d made to her. When she finds out that she has to work with him as he trains to race on the National Ski Team, she is livid. She’s sure she’s moved on, but whenever he’s near, her body and heart become traitorous. When she finds out that things didn’t go down the way she thought they had, will she make the necessary moves to ensure their HEA? Her heart says they belong together, but her mind has other ideas.

Nate knows he did Jackson wrong when he left her 5 years ago, but he’s hoping that this time around, they have a fighting chance to right all the wrongs that happened in the past. But has he left things too long? Will his past and his budding career work against him, too?

This second chance romance was moving. A slow-burn that burned just the right amount with a healthy dose of push-and-pull, pain and angst, it was a pretty good read.

“I promised you a long time ago that even though you weren’t my first, you’d be my last.”

I really liked the cast of characters introduced here, and I definitely look forward to more from Julia Connors.

Meet Julia Connors

Julia Connors grew up on the warm and sunny West Coast, but her first decision as an adult was to trade her flip-flops for snow boots and move to Boston. 

She’s been enjoying everything that New England has to offer for over two decades, and now that she’s acclimated to the snowy winters and finally found all the places to get good sushi and tacos, she has zero regrets. 

 

You can usually find her in front of her computer, but when she stops writing she’s most likely to be found outdoors, preferably with a pair of skis or snowshoes strapped to her feet in winter, or on a paddleboard in the summer.

Release Blitz: Stone Cold by Winter Renshaw ~ 5 stars

 

Amazon 

From #1 Amazon and Wall Street Journal bestselling author Winter Renshaw comes a scorching hot forbidden romance …
 
 
The most humiliating moment of my life begins with an early morning message from my ex’s notoriously heartless best friend.
Jovie—
In no way does this mean my opinion of you has changed.
I’m reaching out because sometime in the middle of last night you tagged yourself in Jude and Stassi’s engagement photo.
I don’t care if you were drunk or it was unintentional. I suggest you remove it immediately since the wedding is in two months (which I’m sure you know since you were clearly FB stalking them). The damage is done, but no reason to make things more awkward.
You’re welcome.
Stone
I waste no time removing my accidental tag before the sharp-tongued novelist in me fires off a response to the man who harbored extreme and inexplicable hatred of me during the three years I dated his best friend in college.
Only I didn’t expect him to respond.
And nothing could have prepared me for what he would say …
… or for all the ways this gorgeous villain with cruel icy blues would become the biggest plot twist my life had ever known.

Stone

The Hannaford Supermarket is packed on this Friday afternoon. I imagine we’re all doing the same thing; ditching work a couple of hours early, grabbing some dinner items, and heading home to kick off our weekend. I wonder if this is what Paul meant when he told me there’s no such thing as a unique experience.

I tuck a six pack of Heineken beneath my arm and head for the meat counter to grab a porterhouse and half a pound of stuffed mushrooms.

“I mean, what would you feed a dog if you had one?” A pony-tailed blonde in neon blue yoga pants asks a pimple-faced butcher.

“I don’t have a dog, ma’am,” he says, his Adam’s apple bobbing.

“But if you did though,” she says.

“I’d probably feed him kibble, ma’am.” His eyes shift toward the long line forming behind her.

“I guess I’ll just take two sirloins,” she says. “The eight ounce, not the five.”

The young man wraps the steak in brown paper for her before sealing it with a sticker.

“Anything else?” he asks.

“That’ll be all, thank you,” she says before taking the package, turning on her heel—and walking right into me. “Oh my god. I’m so sorry. I didn’t see you there.”

In her defense, I was probably standing a little too closer, but the little old lady behind me kept inching closer to me, which made me inch closer to her and it became a big circle jerk of inching.

“Jesus,” I mutter under my breath when our eyes catch.

I’d know those Pacific ocean blues anywhere, the ones so effervescent they almost make me forget it’s been about a week and a half since I ignored her last message.

“Jovie,” I say.

“Stone?” She squints, as if she doesn’t believe her eyes. Then again, I imagine I look slightly different than I did five years ago. Shorter hair. More muscles. Dressier clothes. Bigger big dick energy …

“What are you doing here?” I ask.

The little old lady behind me clears her throat, and I motion for her to go around me.

“I’m watching my neighbor’s dog and he’s refusing to eat. I think he’s depressed. I thought maybe if I got him a steak …” she shrugs. “What are you doing here? I thought you were in Baltimore?”

She remembered …

Our senior year in college, I was accepted into the University of Maryland School of Law that upcoming fall.

“Yeah,” I say. “I was offered a position up here from one of my law professors who was opening a practice here.”

Her lips inch into a wistful yet friendly smile. I’m sure it’s strange seeing me here—of all people. Or maybe she’s looking at me but thinking about Jude. It’s hard to tell. I imagine seeing me all these years later rustles up some old memories she wasn’t prepared to think about at the grocery store on a Friday afternoon.

The last time I hung out with Jovie was before the ill-fated Tulum trip. We were sitting around eating burnt frozen pizza from the campus convenience mart and downing cheap beer. And if that weren’t enough, Jovie forced us to play some God-awful card game where we had to shout certain phrases and clap and make fools of ourselves, but by the end of the night I was drunk enough to actually enjoy it.

The last thing I remember before passing out on the living room couch that evening was Jovie covering me with a blanket before adjusting my pillow so I wouldn’t have a kink in my neck.

I mumbled something to her about not being half bad.

She replied with a coy, “Yeah, I know.”

Everything turned black after that.

Who’d have ever thought that would’ve been the last time we’d hang out, the three of us?

Certainly not me.

I doubt Jude did either.

“You know, I’m still waiting for you to reply to that last message,” she winks and crinkles her nose. “You left me on a cliffhanger.”

“I didn’t feel like answering it.” And it’s the truth.

“That’s your prerogative, I guess.”

I’ll admit, I debated sending her another clever deflection last week, but then I got busy with work and decided it was best just to leave it alone. Besides, some things are better left unsaid.

“You know Jude lives here too,” I say, leaving out any mention of Stassi because it goes without saying.

She lifts her brows. “Okay …”

“You haven’t run into him yet?” I swear he’s never home. Stassi’s always got him running to this festival or that concert or this new restaurant.

She shakes her head, her ponytail flicking over her shoulders.

“I’ve only been here about a year,” she says. “I moved here with my ex … and I guess I haven’t gotten around to leaving yet.”

My chest tightens at the idea of Jovie being with someone new, some faceless pencil dick who probably doesn’t deserve her. From the second time we met, I knew she could never be mine. But even after Jude left her, I never once stopped to picture her with someone new. No need to torture myself.

We linger in silence for a beat, as if neither of us wants to go, yet there’s nothing more to be said.

Her full mouth curls at the sides, flanked by two perfect dimples as she stares up at me through a fringe of curled lashes. I’ve known far too many people who let themselves go after college. The stress of a corporate gig, a robust travel schedule, and a social life that revolves around drinking on the weekends tends to do that to a person. But Jovie looks even more beautiful than she did the night I first saw her.

There’s a calmness about her, as if these last several years in the real world have given her the kind of education she couldn’t get from a four-year institution.

Jovie waves her package of steaks. “I should probably get home and feed Domino.”

“Right.” I rake my hand along my jaw, taking her in for what very well might be the last time.

“It was nice seeing you though.”

Most of the time, when people say that, they never mean it.

“You too,” I say.

She walks away, turning back once more. “You should really think about answering my question …”

“Not a chance.”

She laughs before spinning on her heel and heading to the front of the store to check out.

A moment later, I realize I’m standing there wearing a dopey grin. I’m sure I look like a damn lunatic.

I wipe the expression off my face, get back in line, and order my filet mignon.

Years ago, I used to wonder what would be worse: Jude and Jovie getting married and me having to spend the rest of my life watching my best friend live happily ever after with her? Or Jude sending Jovie packing and me never having to see her again.

It never occurred to me that there could ever be anything in between.

Now I know.

Only I don’t know how I feel about it.

None of these scenarios end with me getting the girl.

Review

This book pulled me in and wrapped me up in it pages.

This forbidden, ex’s best friend romance will surprise you with not only its plot, but its sweetness. The flashbacks, the tension and conclusion make for amazing reading.

You will alternately groan at the what-could-have-beens and cheer while Stone & Jovie navigate the newness of their relationship. I definitely recommend this read!

Release Blitz: Kiss and Fake Up by Carrie Aarons ~ 4 stars

Kiss and Fake Up by Carrie Aarons is live!

This summer was supposed to be an escape from the city and the demons lurking within it. Too bad the minute I arrive at the beach house I’m sharing with friends, the guy I swore I’d never talk to again in my life walks through the door.

Now I’m not only stuck hiding out from an ex who won’t leave me alone, but with someone who screwed me over before he could even be considered an ex.

That’s right, two years ago Campbell Whitlock double booked me on our fourth date. As in, had a girl show up to the table where he was feeding me off his own fork and barely disguising it as foreplay. Meanwhile, my head and heart had been completely on board to make our relationship more serious.

But a leggy blonde foiled that plan, and I’ve hated him on sight since. The ex-Marine turned millionaire restauranteur didn’t even have the decency to follow me with an apology as I ran out of his own establishment.

It’s just my luck that I’m forced to room right next door to my nemesis, who couldn’t be acting more like a saint if he tried. And then the impossible happens; my ex hunts me down to deliver loaded threats and the fear I thought I’d left behind in Manhattan. Who is the only person to witness it? Campbell, of course.

His apology tour apparently extends to offering himself up as my fake boyfriend to scare off my stalker. While the plan is moronic and means having to spend more time with him, the danger I feel is real. Having a hulking, intimidating boyfriend, fake or not, might be exactly what I need.

With every passing day, pretend date, emotional gaze and midnight run-in, our relationship starts to feel less like a deal and more like something very similar to the connection I thought we had years ago. Even though I promised myself I’d never give him a second chance.

But what happens when the person protecting me starts to feel like the one I want to trust forever?
And how will I recover if his favor was done only to gain forgiveness, instead of a chance at falling in love?

Review

Campbell Whitlock has spent every day of the past two years kicking himself for letting Heather walk out of his restaurant. When he finds out they’ll be spending the summer together, he’s determined to get her to forgive him, and see him in a different light. But when his attempt at faking a relationship to keep her safe changes to very real feelings, he’s even more resolved to show her that he’s the man she’s been waiting for.

On top of her most recent relationship troubles, Heather has just found out that the man she almost completely fell for two years ago will be spending the summer in the Hamptons along with their mutual friends. Pissed, afraid and confused, she tries to ice him out. But when Campbell begins to care for her and steps up for her, she begins to feel all the old feelings coming back.

I liked this romance. The suspense aspects were a bit scary (even though it was pretty light), but the overall vibe of the book was still laid-back and fun enough for me to enjoy.

Review Tour: Ten Trends to Seduce Your BestFriend by Penny Reid ~ 5 stars

Title: Ten Trends to Seduce Your Bestfriend
Author: Penny Reid
Genre: Contemporary Romantic Comedy
Release Date: April 12, 2022
BLURB
Winnifred Gobaldi and Byron Visser are not best friends.
Yes, they’ve known each other for years, but they’re not even friendly. Winnie considers them more like casual, distant acquaintances who find each other barely tolerable, especially when he’s being condescending (which is all the time).
The truth is, they have nothing in common. She’s a public school science teacher with stars in her eyes, and he’s a pretentious, joyless double PhD turned world-famous bestselling fiction author. She loves sharing her passion for promulgating women in STEM careers and building community via social media, and he eschews all socialization, virtual or otherwise. She’s looking for a side hustle to help pay down a mountain of student debt, and his financial portfolio is the stuff of fiduciary wet dreams. So why are they faking a #bestfriend relationship for millions of online spectators?
When a simple case of tit-for-tat trends between nonfriends leads to a wholly unexpected kind of pretend, nothing is simple. Sometimes, it takes a public audience to reveal the truth of private feelings, and rarely—very rarely—you should believe what you see online.
Ten Trends to Seduce Your Bestfriend is a full-length, complete standalone, adult contemporary romantic comedy.

REVIEW
This book will surprise you. It was nothing like I thought it would be, but it surpassed every expectation I had. This is a really interesting, captivating read. Byron & Winnie were a couple I enjoyed reading about.

Winnie is a sweet soul. A full-time schoolteacher, she uses social media to introduce young persons to science. She gets offered an opportunity to extend her reach and increase her income, but is told that her follower count is too low to meet the initial application criteria. Her best friend suggests using TikTok challenges with a romantic undertone to spice things up. Despite the whole ‘fakeness’ of it, Winnie agrees. Her original partner flakes at the last minute, and her practise video with Byron – the man she considers most irritating and infuriating – gets posted accidentally. With no choice but to continue the charade with Byron, she braces herself to tolerate his company. Surprisingly, she finds herself not having to pretend to have a good time with him as the two begin spending more time together.

“This feels like fiction.” His stare was absorbed, a little frantic, like I might disappear if he blinked. “This feels like something I’ve conjured from my imagination.”

“Because I surprised you?”

“No.” He pulled in a shaky breath, his eyelashes flickering. “Because it’s perfect.”

It is impossible not to fall for Byron, even though the story is told mostly through Winnie’s POV. We do hear Byron’s side – albeit briefly – but he shines throughout the book. His personality is layered and a bit complicated, but his loyalty, devotion and consideration for Winnie made me love him harder. This slow-burn enemies-to-lovers is one I wholeheartedly & unreservedly recommend. Please don’t be intimidated by the page count. You will love it, and like me, probably be smiling long after you read ‘The End’.

#ReleaseTour: Love to Hate You by Whitley Cox ~ #5stars

Title: Love to Hate You
Author: Whitley Cox
Genre: enemies to lovers, marriage of convenience, best friend’s brother, road trip, forced proximity, romantic comedy, high heat, erotic romance
Release Date: March 12, 2022
She needs arm candy, he needs her insurance, but first, they need to drive across the country without killing each other.
 
Eli
Since the first day of kindergarten, I have hated Alexandra Hartford.
And twenty-something years later that hasn’t changed.
But she has.
She’s still a tomboy with a chip on her shoulder, but now she’s a hot tomboy with a chip on her tattooed shoulder who can fight like a badass.
I’d still rather have a bath with fire ants than spend ten days in a car with her, but she has something I need.
Once the deal is done, we can go our separate ways.
That is … if I want to.
Alex
Eli Evans is my nemesis.
He blames me for his sister’s death, our parents’ divorces, and probably global warming, too.
Why on Earth would I help him?
Because he’s as easy on the eyes as he is the bane of my existence and I need a hot date to a wedding in San Diego.
Can we drive across the country without me leaving him at a truck stop somewhere? I doubt it.
But, I’m willing to try.
Ten days in a car, a wedding, and a marriage of convenience, then I’m done with him forever.
Right?
“An irresistible blend of emotion, angst, drama, heat, heart and humor was super enjoyable and made this book a true delight to read.”
– Gladys (Goodreads Review)
“There was certainly some emotional moments in Love to Hate You and a few times where I was on the edge of my seat whilst reading. This book is a little gem and one I thoroughly enjoyed.”
– Erin Lewis (Goodreads Review)
“Their story is intense and poignant at times but it also has a lighter side to it as well. The authors words draw you into a storyline that holds hard and fast to your heart. Love to Hate You is an exceptional love story.”
– Kylee (Goodreads Review)
“The sexy times between them are nothing to sneeze at either: hot, steamy, sensual and drool-worthy. This book made me laugh one moment and cry the next.”
– Silke (Goodreads Review)

The sound of the curtain in her changing room being pulled open echoed into my changing room, so I made sure my dick wasn’t visible, then pulled back my own curtain. 

Jamie was zipping up Alexandra’s dress—the royal blue bandage strapless one—but she whipped around to face me when Jamie was finished. 

Her eyes widened, pupils dilated, nostrils flared. It was a primal reaction that I would have to be an idiot to miss. 

I had a primal reaction of my own—in my pants. 

“Holy fuck,” I breathed. 

She glanced away, but the smile that lifted one side of her mouth was dead sexy. 

“You’re getting that one,” I said. 

She smoothed her hands down the sides, turned on one foot, and glanced at herself in the mirror. “Yeah, I like it, too.”

“You can’t wear those two together, though,” Jamie said. “The blues are too close in color, but not close enough. If you know what I mean?”

Alexandra and I nodded. 

“He should just wear a dress shirt and maybe dark gray pants when you wear that dress.”

“I have dark gray pants in the room,” I said, hooking a thumb toward my changing room and a stack of pants on the bench.

I stepped out and away from my room to get a better look at myself in the mirror outside the changing rooms. “What do you think?”

“I think it’s a perfect fit,” Jamie said. “Doesn’t even look like you’ll need tailoring.”

Alexandra nodded. “Looks good.” I caught her checking out my ass and grinned, but when she saw me see her, her eyes whipped up to the ceiling as if a flock of geese had just flown overhead. 

“You guys got any brown wingtips?” I asked, focusing my gaze on Jamie. 

He nodded. “Sure do. Size?”

I glanced back at Alexandra and smiled as I said, “Thirteen.” 

I did not miss the flare of her eyes or the way they drifted down to the front of my pants. 

“Eyes up here, lady,” I said, catching her gaze back in the mirror. 

Startled, she ditched the surprised look and went with a glare before returning to her changing room and dramatically pulling the curtain closed again. 

“What is the dynamic of your relationship?” Jamie asked, glancing back and forth between me and the closed changing room curtain. 

“She’s my fiancée,” I said chipperly. “But she’d rather not be.”

blog_review166480378.jpg
This was a pretty great read, with characters that I couldn’t help but like because their feelings were so relatable.

Eli & Alex have known each other since childhood but have never gotten along. And as their teens progressed, their childhood rivalry grew into hatred. And as adults, their relationship hasn’t improved, but Eli needs a huge favour, and Alex needs him as a date to a wedding she absolutely must attend. A marriage of convenience seems like a small price to pay for both parties to get what they want.

I truly enjoyed this read. Whitley Cox did a great job. Many moments, I was able to sense the pain, frustration, confusion and wonder felt by both main characters as they tried to reconcile their past opinions of each other with the person they were getting to know in the present. As a lover of enemies-to-lovers romances, I must say that this one is a very good, very well-written one.

“No, our origin story was not a fairy tale, but it was our story, and it was magical in its own way.”

I was totally wrapped up in this read. You’ll love Alex’s strong yet vulnerable vibe, and like how much Eli is willing to work to atone for all the hurt he’s caused. With a great couple with sizzling chemistry, lots of emotional depth and character development, I recommend Love to Hate You.

I voluntarily read & reviewed an ARC of this book.

A Canadian West Coast baby born and raised, Whitley is married to her high school sweetheart, and together they have two beautiful daughters and a fluffy dog. She spends her days making food that gets thrown on the floor, vacuuming Cheerios out from under the couch and making sure that the dog food doesn’t end up in the air conditioner. But when nap time comes, and it’s not quite wine o’clock, Whitley sits down, avoids the pile of laundry on the couch, and writes.
 
A lover of all things decadent; wine, cheese, chocolate and spicy erotic romance, Whitley brings the humorous side of sex, the ridiculous side of relationships and the suspense of everyday life into her stories. With single dads, firefighters, Navy SEALs, mommy wars, body issues, threesomes, bondage and role-playing, Whitley’s books have all the funny and fabulously filthy words you could hope for.

My first memory is of breaking my mom’s heart. Yea, people know me as the good-time guy, the guy with the jokes, the deejay who’s always up for a party. But underneath all of that, I’m the guy who lets people down wherever I go. 

The one person who sees past all my bullshit is Lucy. She always has, since we were thirteen and she hated my guts. But I’ve never hated her. Lucy is my ideal in every way– gorgeous and funny and smart and takes no shit with an ass that’s the stuff of my dreams. Too bad she’s also my stepsister. 

But don’t worry, ma. Nothing to see here. Afterall, Lucy can’t stand me, so when we go roadtripping together, nothing will happen, right?

Except it does. And neither one of us is ready for the fallout.

 Release Date: February 22

Chloe believes in two things: Russell is her soulmate and her pies are magic. One bite of her cherry pie and he’ll declare her “the one.”

But she’s perfect for him–as a fake girlfriend to appease his family-friendly boss. She’s in love with someone else, after all. And, he doesn’t do love, especially not with someone so bubbly, so dewy-eyed, so … committed to marching down a wedding aisle.
Plus this girl needs help when it comes to men–a lot of it. He’ll help her lure Russell into dreaded wedded bliss, and she’ll pose as his date.
Except Chloe’s wishes begin to go haywire–granting Nick’s and turning all those fake kisses into smoking hot moments of passion.
It turns out Chloe’s not as innocent as he first thought.

A fake relationship, opposites attract, laugh out loud romantic comedy.

Review

Chloe has met the man she believes to be the man of her dreams, so armed with pies baked with her grandma’s recipe and her belief in the magic of love and seizing the right moment, she is ready to woo him into her arms forever. But her plan hits a snag when there seems to be competition for her soulmate.

Nick doesn’t believe in love, having had the least happiest experiences where it was concerned, but he is sure excited about the taste of Chloe’s pies. When his workplace begins to hint at it being best that he be a bit more family-oriented, he offers her a deal: be his girlfriend for a little while and he’ll help her land her soulmate.

The real fun begins when both Nick & Chloe begin to fall for each other while pretending it doesn’t mean anything. Their romance is fun, fresh, inspiring, and full of confidence and personal growth lessons with many great pie ideas.

I wasn’t sure what to expect when I began this book, but Elizabeth SaFleur gave me a story that pleasantly surprised me. More than just a fake relationship romance, it is a book that I wholeheartedly recommend.

Elizabeth writes award-winning, luscious romance from 28 wildlife-filled acres, which she shares with her husband and one very spoiled Westie. When not immersed in books she can be found hiking or drinking good Virginia wine—not necessarily in that order.  

She writes and posts under a pseudonym, Elizabeth SaFleur, since her day-job clients might be (would be) a little shocked at how their counselor spends her free time, the delicate flowers. Then again, perhaps they’d fear they provided inspiration. She’ll never tell.

How do you send a fake relationship into overdrive?
Turn it into something real.
With your best friend’s ex.
Who hates you.

My life is about risk – racing cars for a living. So, a fake girlfriend should have been no more dangerous than anything else.

It was supposed to be temporary, just a few fake meet-ups, nothing too serious.
A small white lie to help fix my so-called “bad” reputation.

Who would have thought I’d want more than a few dates?
Not me.

Or that the girl who was supposed to be my fake something would turn into my very real everything?
Also not me.

The question is, do I let her believe it’s all still pretend?

Or tell her how I feel and wait to see what happens?

Review

Jace has racked up many indiscretions lately, and needs a quick, believable image rehab. The idea to choose his PR agent as his fake girlfriend seems excellent, but their fake show soon has real feelings. Can he trust these new, unfamiliar feelings?

Charlie is suckered into being Jace’s fake girlfriend. Disbelieving of his ability to keep up the ruse, she is pleasantly surprised when the Jace she gets seems completely different from the man she thought she always knew. Can this bad boy leopard change his spots?

I really, really liked Jace & Charlie – Jace especially. The book was funny and sweet, with just a bit of drama. I would have liked for some resolution for Charlie career-wise, but otherwise, it was a great read that I absolutely recommend.

I voluntarily read & reviewed an ARC of this book.

About the Author

Denise has been reading since before she could talk. And to this day, escaping into a book is her go-to activity before anything else.

She likes to write about sassy women and semi-flawed alpha-esque men (hard on the outside and just a little soft on the inside.) Denise’s female characters always have strong friendships, potty mouths, and like to drink—a lot.

Denise is loyal to a fault, a bit too sarcastic, blindingly optimistic, and pretty freakin’ happy with life overall. If she couldn’t be a writer, she’d be a singer in a classic rock band. Right after she learned to carry a tune. She has more purses than days in the month, an obsession with colored ink pens, and a slightly unhealthy bracelet habit.

Home is in the Pacific Northwest where she lives with five Siberian Huskies and a husband (BW) who has the patience and tolerance of a saint. And, lest she forget, Denise also lives with too many to count characters inside her head, who will eventually have their stories told.

Teaser Tuesday: Scandal by J. L. Baldwin

Scandal by J.L.  Baldwin is releasing March 3, 2022!

Goodreads: http://bit.ly/3e6WPSI

Blurb

A female racer set on defying the odds, a famous playboy set on ruining her reputation, an attraction neither one can deny

Kellie

Kellie was a rebel without a cause, a defiant force to be reckoned with, and everything her parents feared she’d grow up to be. 

Defying the odds and breaking the rules. On and off the track. That was Kellie’s motto for life. Being a female race car driver in what’s considered a male-dominated profession has given her some challenges in life.

But when a wrench is suddenly thrown into the path of her dreams, she decides to take matters into her own hands and not bend down to anybody. 

Ashton

Ashton has had his fair share of rules. Growing up as the son of a famous indie race car driver, he has been at the epicenter of the media his whole life.

Things take a sudden turn when Ashton catches Kellie, his old high school “acquaintance” in a rather compromising position, then the perfect plan started to form.

Blackmailing Kellie into a fake relationship was the only way to get what he wanted and that was to get the media off his back and his playboy ways. Even if fighting him every step of the way and letting him see that fire inside of her made him fall harder each and every day, pretending to fake the feelings he developed might just veer him off track of his perfect plan all together.
