Review Graphic
We are reintroduced to Alé & Tilda once more. Now married, they are competing for the title in the World Tango competition. Still as attracted to his wife as he was the day he first saw her, his confidence is riding an all-time high. However, his past isn’t quite as willing to let him be at peace.

Tilda’s emotional growth is showcased in this little bite, as is Alé’s understanding that she can stand up for herself. I liked the forward glimpse we get of Alé & Tilda’s life. Less dramatic, but still as intriguing as well as steamy, it was like an epilogue.

I voluntarily read & reviewed an ARC of this book.

Mma is just beginning her first job. Despite her family’s problems, she is determined to be her own woman, and live her own life. A night out with her sisters sees her meeting Fuad and she ends up giving him her virginity. After an unforgettable night, she decides to leave it in the past, but then she finds out she is pregnant, and Fuad demands her hand in marriage so their baby can have a good home. She is hesitant, as she wants her marriage to be a love match.

Fuad hasn’t been able to forget the night he and Mma had. Shocked at her pregnancy, he does what he thinks is right, but warns her that she can never expect love.

I enjoyed this romance. It has humor, heart and a bit of steam. It’s the first time that I am reading one like it, and I truly liked the way that the author incorporated a different culture into the story line. I had a fun time Googling the different African words as I read.

I recommend this book wholeheartedly.

The Trojan Series

Publication Date: October 21, 2021
Genres: Adult, Contemporary, Rock Star Romance

Rush – noun: a surging of emotion

My life is falling apart.

Fired from my job.

Blacklisted across NYC.

At odds with my mother.

The only thing good I have to hold on to is the memory of my steamy one-night stand.

Only I had no idea who Eli was…

Or that I’d end up working on his movie set.

The spark between us threatens to reignite every time we’re near each other.

But Eli wants more than just hot sex.

He has a daughter and wants a partner in life.

I’m seeking answers about my past and trying to plan my future.

Commitment is the last thing I want.

Yet, I’m unable to resist his pull and his passion.

His touch eases the turmoil in my life.

His kiss takes me to another place.

And the more time I spend with him and his daughter, 

the harder it becomes to break away.

Though when forced to choose between Eli or a chance at a fresh start, 

I’m not sure I can risk it all for love.


Book 4 in the Trojan series gives us Eli’s story.

As a single father trying to separate his fame from who the man he is, Eli is struggling in the dating department. No woman he meets on his sophisticated dating app seems to fire his blood the way a recent one night stand did. He didn’t get her name, but he can’t forget her face or the way she made him feel. A twist of fate lands them on a movie set together, and into each other’s lives again. But how eager is Prudence to believe that what they have is forever?

“…we’re destined to meet and be together in every one of our lives.”

Prudence aka Pru is flailing about since the company she helped create kicked her out. Blacklisted and in-between jobs, she isn’t exactly eager to work on a movie set. But then she is introduced to one of the main actors and is shell-shocked to realise he was her unforgettable one night stand. With walls high because of her past, Pru is afraid of the life Eli promises.

“There’s a pull between us. Undeniable and electric.”

Pru and Eli’s story moves fast, but their connection is unmistakable and believable. I liked the way Eli did everything possible to give Pru the assurance that he was 100% invested in them. He never gave her any occasion to doubt him. She didn’t stand a chance!

“You can give me your worst, and Pru Edwards, I’ll still be here.”

I enjoyed this book. It’s the right amount of sweet and steamy, wrapping up the series.

Ginny Colburn can’t believe she’s been dumped by her wedding date. And everybody knows it.

So when a cute, younger man serving champagne to the guests flirts with her, she decides to really give the guests something to talk about and flirts back. But the incredible, rebound, one-night stand gives her more than great memories. A few weeks later she’s holding a positive pregnancy test.

Josh Anderson finally has his degree and is ready to make his mark on the world, but then he finds out he’s going to be a father. He’s too young to settle down and Lakeside is way too small for his big dreams. Ginny doesn’t expect him to stick around anyway and makes it clear she’s ready to be a single mom, but Josh won’t run away from his responsibilities.

But just as they’re starting to think maybe what they have is real, Josh gets a job offer he can’t refuse. Surely Ginny can’t follow a guy half her age across the country just because they’re having a baby together… Can she?


This romance was sweet and I truly liked it.

The author gives us an emotional journey as Ginny & Josh juggle impending parenthood, their age difference and the desire to be more than just co-parents. They struggle through small town gossip, family expectations, misunderstandings and the desire to “do the right thing”. I liked watching as their relationship grew from a one night stand to one where they began to put one another first.

I recommend this read. There’s a lot that’s going on in it, but it’s a wonderful, heartwarming read.

A regimented life on the track is the reason I’m a Kingston College scholarship student.

But a wayward football—thrown by Christian Moore, the rich guy who ruined my reputation in high school—threatened to rob me of my future.

Desperation drove me to do something foolish.

Something that put my body in the hands of the guy I hate.

I didn’t want to like his touches. I didn’t want to crave him.

But everything in the way he devoured me turned me inside out and made me forget this was just a game.

Now I fear he’s going to ruin me again…in ways there will be no coming back from.


Maize has a lot riding on her last year at college. On a scholarship, she can’t afford any distractions or mistakes. But when she’s in the wrong place at the wrong time, and the unthinkable happens, she finds herself at the mercy of her old high school nemesis, Christian. As she struggles to separate past Christian from present Christian, she finds that he continually surprises her.

Christian Moore doesn’t remember when he stopped disliking Maize Malone. But ever since he helped cause her accident, he finds himself unable to stop liking her. And being in close proximity to her day and night is doing a number on his control. Will he have the courage to show her that he’s all in before their arrangement expires, or will he have to watch her walk away from him?

I liked the push and pull between the couple. They had chemistry in spades, and they were relatable as well as easy to like. I liked the suspense/forbidden aspects of the book, but felt that the author didn’t exploit them enough. I also wanted a little more by way of ending for the book.

I enjoyed this book much more than I expected to. After how bitterly disappointed I was with the first book, I must say that my faith is restored, and I am definitely looking forward to more from the series.

#ReviewTour: The Pediatrician’s Twin Bombshell by @juliettehyland ~ #4stars

The Pediatrician’s Twin Bombshell
Juliette Hyland
Published by: Harlequin Medical Romance
Publication date: May 25th 2021
Genres: Adult, Contemporary, Romance

The wrong time…
…to meet Mr. Right?

Why is pediatrician Tessa all work and no play? Well, she’s far too used to people not believing in her. Still, Tessa can’t resist one—incredible!—night in nurse Gabe’s arms…and the chance to feel wanted. But it’s not just Tessa who is battling her past. Widower Gabe has his own scars to heal. So when Tessa discovers she’s pregnant, he’s determined to look after her! But is Tess ready to trust Gabe?

Goodreads / Amazon / Barnes & Noble / iBooks / Kobo / Google Play


Tessa Garcia is feeling low after reflecting on just how much her failed marriage has affected her entire life. But Gabe Davis is a welcome blast from the past to change all that. Can she let go of the pain of her past in time to ensure that their new life together would work out fine?

Gabe is pleasantly surprised that his one night with Tessa has brought on a compelling desire to stay close to her. He sees his future with her clearly, but isn’t sure that she does. Determined to make her realise that things between them despite their unorthodox circumstances, will his eagerness drive her away instead of straight into his arms?

This is a good, light and comfortable read. Tessa faces a lot of the challenges that modern women face when they decide that they want the best of both worlds. The author did a great job of capturing each partner’s fears as well as their chemistry in a charged, fast-paced environment.

Fans of surprise baby/accidental pregnancy romance tropes will enjoy this read. I recommend it.

Take A Number-front-no apple

Fake dating the cute owner of a bakery Dean is an investor in sounds kind of messy…but messy can be fun.

Norah Donahue wants bakeries not babies, but her matchmaking mother won’t stop trying to play Cupid.

Dean Moser is a cocky stock market savant whose friends are all settling down, leaving Boulder’s infamous ladies’ man all alone.

When Norah needs a fake date for her parents’ anniversary party, her new silent investor is the perfect guy for the job. It seems like a foolproof plan…

That is until Norah decides to break her biggest rule and lock lips with Dean in the middle of the party to spite her meddling mother.

Turns out that Dean and Norah’s chemistry is sizzling hot, and mixing business with pleasure could turn out to be a recipe for disaster.

Or maybe they can have their cake and eat it too

The Wait With Me series is simply amazing!

In Take A Number, we finally get Dean’s story. Dean – the metrosexual best friend of Kate and all-round do-gooder player. Offering to help a friend out by being her fake boyfriend turns into the best relationship he’s ever had, but he knows he’s not good enough for her… But can he be?

Norah Donahue is super-focused on expanding her bakery business. She does NOT have time for her mother’s matchmaking shenanigans. Dean Moser is someone she already knows and couldn’t possibly ever fall for. She’s not into babies and weddings, anyway, and certainly not with him, of all people… Right?

Norah & Dean’s story will certainly get you in your feelings as pastry and cookies take on new meanings. I wholeheartedly recommend this hot, funny and sweet read.

“This is a disaster,” I groan and turn to prop my elbows on the bar. “Can I get another champagne, please?”

Dean sidles up next to me as the bartender fills my glass. “What’s up, sugar? I think your dad likes me.”

I pin him with a warning look. “If you add tits to the end of that sugar, your balls must have a death wish.”

“Why so cheery?” Dean asks, hunching over the bar to sip his brown liquor out of a rocks glass. “Did your mother give you a puppy again? That Elaine.”

“My mother invited Nathaniel here tonight,” I state flatly.

“The perfect teeth guy?”


“So, what’s the big deal?”

I pin him with an accusing look. “She gave him the impression I was here for him. Like I was some lonely sack who couldn’t get a date even if I wanted to. Jesus, this is embarrassing.”

“Relax.” Dean turns to face the party and rests his elbows behind him like he doesn’t have a care in the world. “We’ll just have to break some of your rules.”

“What do you mean?” I grab a nut from the bowl on the bar and chew on it nervously.

“Well, if you want this guy to steer clear, then a little PDA might be in order.”

“What kind of PDA?” If he says kissing, I’ll spontaneously combust.

Dean seems to read my mind and rolls his eyes. “Relax, sugar cake, I mean a little…affection. Maybe we dance. Maybe I put my arms around your waist or play with your hair a little. Or maybe we get practically pornographic, and I waffle your fingers.” He laughs casually. “Something to show your mother this Nate guy doesn’t have a chance.”

I nod thoughtfully as I process what Dean’s just said. He mentioned touching me so casually like it’s no big deal. I suppose it isn’t since he seems to flirt with anything that walks. But I’ve been out of the game for a while now, and I can count on one hand the number of people I’ve been affectionate with, and even those were years ago. Is this really something I can pull off?

“Norah, drink the rest of that champagne. It’s going to be fine.”

I close my eyes, letting his words sink in while feeling anything but fine. “Okay, just promise you won’t try to kiss me. I’m barely holding it together as it is, and if I have to worry about you breaking the ultimate rule, I won’t survive this night.” I tip the rest of the champagne into my mouth.

“Relax, I won’t tongue thrust you in front of all your parents’ friends. I’m a mountain manwhore, but I draw the line at lip raping.”

#BlogTour: Trust Fund Fiance by @Naima_Simone


Trust Fund Fiance banner.jpg

An intriguing proposal mixes romance and finance…

His friend needs a fiancé to claim a fortune.

But they both know it’s about more than money…

Ezekiel Holloway’s proposition could save his friend Reagan Sinclair’s inheritance and give her the freedom she craves. But when family scandals force Ezekiel to end their fake engagement, the heiress comes up with a counter-proposal—and they elope to Vegas after all! Is there something more than mere convenience at stake here?

Trust Fund Fiance Final Cover.jpg

Trust Fund Fiance Teaser Graphic.png


“Marry me.”

Ezekiel stared at Regan, struck speechless. Dozens of questions bombarded him, and he mentally waded through them, finally settling on the most important one. “What?”

“Marry me,” she repeated, closing the short distance between them, not stopping until her hands fisted the lapels of his suit jacket, her thighs braced against his and that honeysuckle scent embraced him like a long-lost lover.

He swallowed a groan at her nearness, at the feel of her body pressed to his. Lust, hot and hungry, punched him in the gut, then streamed through him in a swollen flood. Desperate to place distance between them so he could f*cking think, he gripped her hips to set her away from him. But touching her backfired. Instead of pushing her back, he held her close, his body rebelling and taking control. Two weeks. It’d been two long weeks.

“Reagan,” he rumbled.

“No, Zeke. Don’t give me all the reasons why we shouldn’t. I don’t care. Do you know where I just came from?” she asked, switching topics with a lightning speed that left him floundering. Between that and his *ick finding cushion against her stomach, he couldn’t keep up. “I just left a restaurant where my father arranged for me to have lunch with Justin McCoy.”

“The hell?” His grip on her tightened. Douglas had set her up with that a**hole?

“Yes.” Reagan nodded as if reading his mind. “Apparently my father considered him a more suitable match than you. A man who uses and throws away women for his own gain rather than you, a man who has been nothing but honorable and unfailingly kind and respectful. I had enough. I walked away from him and his machinations. I’m through allowing him to run my life, to make choices for me out of guilt and loyalty.”

Guilt? What the hell did that mean?

Shoving the questions aside for the moment, he refocused on her. “I understand your anger, believe me, I do, but take a moment and think this through before you make a mistake you can’t take back. This decision will cost you your inheritance. It could damage your relationship with your parents. Is this rebellion worth that? Because you’re not in…” He couldn’t finish that sentence. Couldn’t fathom it.

“No, Zeke, I’m not in love with you,” she assured him, and he exhaled a heavy breath. Even as an unidentifiable emotion twisted in his chest. “And maybe this is a little bit of rebellion on my part, but it’s so much more. I’m taking control—of my choices, my mind, my life. I respect you, Zeke. But this isn’t about you. It’s about me. About finally becoming the woman I’ve been too afraid to own. So, from now on, I’m making my own decisions,” she continued. “And that includes you. I choose you, Zeke. And I want you to marry me.”

Jesus, did she know what a delicious temptation she was? How he’d fought following after her that evening he’d let her walk out of his house? That had required strength he hadn’t realized he possessed. Doing it a second time…

No, she might feel certain here in this office, but she was still upset. Could feel very differently in the morning, hell, hours from now. Maybe after they talked this out, she would see—

She rose on her toes and crushed her mouth to his.

Oh f*ck.

His control snapped.

Like a flash fire, the press of her lips to his poured gasoline over the lust that had been steadily simmering. He took possession of that sweet siren’s mouth, claiming it with a thrust of his tongue. Possessing it with a long, wet lick. Corrupting it with an erotic tangle and suck that left little to the imagination about what he wanted from her.

And he wanted it all. In this moment where the lines between platonic friendship and desire incinerated beneath his greedy mouth and her needy whimpers, he wanted everything she had to give him.
