Having to attend my sister’s wedding with a pretend boyfriend had been bad enough, but when that fake date left me stranded an hour before the ceremony, I thought my life was over. No one wore disappointment as poorly as my mother, and I’d already given her a thousand reasons to wish I’d never been born.

Which was why, when a random stranger sat beside me at the bus stop, wearing a crisp suit and a winning smile as though God himself had heard my woeful prayers, I wasted no time in making a rushed deal with the devil:
A night of his time in exchange for money I didn’t have.

It sounded so simple. It sounded easy… if only cash had been what Fraser Scott wanted at the end of the night. A man like him, with his intense grey eyes, hard muscles, and obvious charm didn’t need his wallet filling. He didn’t need anything I was willing to offer freely.

By the time it was all over, what Fraser demanded, in fact, was me…

And it turned out that Fraser wasn’t the kind of man who walked away from a deal without coming out on top.


This is a story that I absolutely adored.

“Some experiences had to be treated like a dream – a well-played trick of the mind that once made you feel alive when really you were fast asleep.”

Fraser & Charlotte’s romance could have easily been a regular fake-relationship-turned-real trope that had a cute ending, but Vicki James made The Bad Wedding Date so much more than a title, bigger than the book’s description, and into a story that made reading it an immense joy.

Charlotte meets Fraser serendipitously, it seems, as she is stood up by her fake date to her sister’s wedding. With Fraser surprising her at every turn, Charlotte must decide whether this new version of herself she is whenever he’s around is one she wants to keep forever, or if her time is supposed to be only a short, sweet memory.

“I promise to be the best mistake you’ve ever made.”

I loved Fraser. He’s all protector on the outside but sweet and considerate on the inside. His tug of war with himself was all the more endearing, since I could tell he only wanted the best for Charlotte. Meeting her has allowed him to focus on something else: truly living life.

“Sometimes, in the middle of chaos lies beauty. Charlotte happened to be mine.”

I liked Charlotte’s quiet, understated and underestimated strength. Unlike the rest of her family, she truly is a good person, with a stubborn sort of determination to be different no matter what it costs. Yet, she is a bit lost. Fraser gives her the confidence to accept herself and find freedom in that acceptance.

This book will shock and enrage you, but still amaze you. I give Vicki James kudos for a book that was very hard to put down; it was thrilling, full of twists and turns, with just that edge of darkness. And underneath it all, sweet and passionate. I recommend it unreservedly and wholeheartedly.

I voluntarily read & reviewed an ARC of this book.

Dean plays all his cards close to the vest, especially his emotional ones. He doesn’t feel the desire to settle down, instead opting for casual arrangements. Work has been his priority for a long time, and he has no intention of changing that. When Mia enters his life, he’s struck by how easily his focus shifts, as no other woman before her has come that close to altering his life. But as the secrets she keeps continue blindsiding him, he begins to wonder if letting his guard down was the right call all along.

Mia responds to a text meant for someone else and begins a seductive game of cat and mouse with Dean McCormick. But as she gets to know the man under the expensive suits and cool façade, she finds herself wishing that he could be permanent in her life. Caught up in the fantasy, will Mia be able to convince Dean that her love is real and true, or will she be the villain in her own love story?

I liked the premise and general story arc in this book. Dean & Mia had real chemistry, and I genuinely enjoyed their banter. I loved the emotional undertones that the authors snuck in, too, ensuring that I truly enjoyed the book. I recommend it. It is a great addition to the Cocky Hero Club series.

Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: April 25, 2021
Vi Keeland and Penelope Ward are excited to bring you the Cocky Hero Club: original works from various authors inspired by Keeland and Ward’s New York Times bestselling Cocky Bastard series.
My life isn’t perfect, but it’s mine. Writing for an upscale magazine in New York City is a dream come true. Everything is perfect, until it isn’t.
Now, I’m unemployed, single, pushing forty, and living back at home with my parents. Mid-life crisis anyone?
Then he walks through my parents’ front door and it all fades away. Sebastian “Bash” Jagger is grown up and all man. This new version in front of me is as cocksure as they come. Some would even call him a Rock God. And he’s about to turn my world upside down with an offer I can’t refuse.
There’s just one problem. He’s my younger brother’s best friend. My much younger brother.
Fame and fortune; I’ve got it in spades. From the millions of fans screaming my name every night to the awards that line the walls of my mansion, I have it all. It’s a far cry from the dirty orphan who used to sleep on the floor of his best friend’s room.
Still, having everything isn’t enough. Something is still missing.
The second I walk through her parents’ front door and my eyes land on her, I know exactly what that is or rather who that is.
London Ramone has been the star of every wet dream I’ve ever had. The forbidden fruit I couldn’t touch, but was dying to taste. She was beautiful then, but she’s stunning now.
Opportunity is knocking—she needs a job and I have an offer she can’t refuse. If we both end up tangled in my sheets along the way that’s a bonus I can live with because I always get what I want and that won’t stop now.
She thinks I’m too young for her, but I’m going to enjoy proving to her how wrong she is. After all, age is just a number and I have hers.
Rockstar Rebel is a friends to lovers/rock star romance inspired by Park Avenue Player.

Sebastian jumps at the opportunity to finally show his best friend’s older sister that he’s so much more than a pretty rockstar. But London’s insecurities – and someone’s jealousy – could weigh them down before they even complete the first line of what could be a perfect melody.
“London owns me, body and soul. She always has. She always will.”
I liked the chemistry between London & Bash. They really had some hot moments between them! This is one of those books where it was hard to find a favourite secondary character. I loved the entire band, London’s bestie, her cousin and parents. I loved the teasing and banter between the bandmates, too.

This is a really good addition to the Cocky Hero Club series. Christine Besze is a new-to-me author, but I am already intrigued by her work. I am already looking forward to a story about a certain “mystery redhead”. I hope that we get all the stories about the other guys in the Toxic Goats.

#ReleaseBlitz: Over the Moon by @KKAllen_Author ~ 4.5 stars

Release Date: April 22

“My secrets have always kept me safe… until he saw my truth.”


Kingston Scott is the most eligible bachelor in professional football, a charming rebel on and off the field. He’s also in desperate need of an attitude adjustment.


After a reckless night on the town puts him behind bars, he’s sentenced to coach football at a sleepaway camp in the middle of nowhere. He’s not sure he’ll survive an entire month of torture… until he sees her. The intoxicating woman with the silver moon eyes, the reserved smile, and the past she’s determined to keep hidden.


Silver Livingston is the resident nurse at Camp Dakota, a beautiful temptress on and off the clock. She’s also a forbidden mystery to all who know her.


After a decade of living in the shadows of the safe haven she’s created, she receives news that threatens her perfect façade. Silver isn’t sure what to do next… and then she sees him. The new arrival with the body of a god, a flashy smile, and evergreen eyes that burn straight through to her core.


Now, Silver isn’t sure which threat to fear most—the irresistible man she knows she must deny or the inevitable head-on collision with her past.

The book opens on a mysterious note, so we immediately know that Silver is on the run. As the book goes on, we get more of the story, most of it through flashbacks. Silver is unwilling and afraid of what returning to her ‘real’ life will do for her life and mental sanity. She doesn’t count on Kingston Scott turning her carefully crafted life inside out. He makes her wish that her past never existed, but since fairy tales and wishes don’t exist, she is determined to discourage his every advance.

Kingston Scott wishes to be anywhere but at Camp Dakota. But since it may cost him his spot on his football team, he has no choice. When he lays eyes on Nurse Silver for the first time, he thinks he might just pass the time in a better way, but Silver isn’t like the women he’s accustomed to in Seattle. What starts out as a challenge to get the pretty-eyed nurse in his bed for a fling changes to a long term campaign to win her trust and her heart.

I liked this read. It’s a slow burn that keeps you hanging onto every word and every interaction as you get caught up in Kingston & Silver’s world. The chemistry and teasing banter are plentiful, too, with lots of heartfelt moments in-between.

I would love to read more of the Bexley family, and look forward to reading more of K.K. Allen’s work.

I recommend this read. You’ll enjoy it.

#ReleaseTour #ReleaseBlitz: Between Dusk & Dawn by @wwatkinsbooks ~ #4stars

Title: Between Dusk and Dawn
Series: Rosavale Series
Author: Willa Watkins
Genre: NA Contemporary Romance
Release Date: April 22, 2021
If everything was easy, I’d throw myself in your arms and drown in your kisses.

If everything was easy, I’d hate you now.

But I want you.

You pretend you don’t notice. I’m right next door when you deny me affection.

It makes me miserable.

I want your love without prejudice. Your forbidden desire.

Talon is the youngest of the five Ashford brothers. When thirteen-year-old Navia is adopted and brought into the family, no matter how hard he tries, Talon can’t see her as just a sister.

As the years pass, they succumb to their forbidden desires. But their secret isn’t the only one looming over the Ashford family. An enemy rises from the ashes to bring discord among them.

Amid regrets and guilt, love and hatred, their feelings become more intense and harder to hide.

Will Talon and Navia be able to face all the obstacles and keep the family together while fighting for their love?

Between Dusk & Dawn is a New Adult contemporary romance with high steam and a dash of suspense. It is the first book in the Rosavale Series and can be read as a standalone. It’s advised that you read the books in order to avoid spoilers.

Bookbub Review – “What a way to debut!! Willa Watkins has written a steamy suspenseful romance that is going to suck you in and not let you go.”

Goodreads Review – “Wow this book was so good I was hooked from the first page.”

Made Me Blush Books – “This debut novel from Willa surprised me in the best way. I loved the chemistry between Navia and Talon!”

Review Graphic
Willa Watkins whets the appetite and keeps you hooked, wondering what’s really going on in Rosavale.

Navia & Talon’s relationship from the beginning is different than most of the step-sibling trope books I’ve read. Adopted into the Ashford family at around 13, she and Talon have always seen each other as more than a sibling. But as the years go by, Navia becomes frustrated with Talon’s reluctance to claim her as his, and by the time she is 19, she has decided that he needs to step up or she’s out.

Talon fights his more-than-brotherly affection for Navia hard. But even he can’t deny that he is deeply in love with her, and unhappy without her. Fearing social outcry and familial discord, he struggles to hide his feelings until he realises that Navia could move on without him. But before they can be together freely, Navia’s mysterious past reappears with a vengeance.

With a full cast of diverse characters, this is a book that I couldn’t put down easily. There are lots of secrets and mysterious disappearances, and they seem to all center around Navia. I liked the way the story developed, and it sets the series up wonderfully. While I am not into some of the paraphilia introduced in this book, I am definitely interested in how the rest of the Ashford brothers’ stories will turn out, especially after that ending!

This debut was well done, and I recommend it.

Guy & his mystery girl reunite, but immediately find themselves in the middle of some serious family drama.

The story was intriguing enough for me to finish in one day, but I wasn’t in love with it entirely. It was one of those reads that felt a bit… much. I liked the corruption angle, but felt it was a bit overblown with odd twists.

I liked the way that the author did the flashbacks and connected those events to the present. It was clear that Guy & Lynne had more than a fling going on in their every interaction. They were sweet and filled with the right amount of heat.

It’s a nice read that you’ll definitely enjoy.

#CoverReveal: Check Swing by @authorcarriea


The cover for Carrie Aarons’ next Callahan Family book is here, and it’s GORGEOUS! Check Swing releases on March 12, and it’s a sports romance with a surprise baby twist!

This steamy love story brings us back to the world of a small Pennsylvania town that houses a professional baseball team, which has been run by the same family for generations. After being struck by scandal, they’re closing ranks. Drama, romance, familial bonds, sports – this series has it ALL.

Add it to your TBR:


Sinclair Callahan is a trust fund baby.

Born into one of the richest, most notorious families in the country, the black sheep title was stamped on him from an early age. While the rest of his relatives earn their keep at the top tier baseball team they’ve owned for generations, Sin prefers spending his time and money on booze, babes and bad decisions.

Until all three land him in a coma, fighting for his life.

One year later, with a sober chip in his hand, he arrives at spring training ready to turn it all around. But when he meets the only woman who doesn’t recognize just who he is, he can’t help omitting a few important details … like his last name. No stranger to charming women, Sin uses one of his old skillsets to kick off what is sure to be an epic hookup.

But when she shows up five months after their brief Florida fling with a secret that will topple his privileged world, he might just lose everything he’s worked so hard to rebuild. Including a real shot at love with the sassy redhead that he’s been too much of a coward to pursue.

Can he shoulder the responsibility he’s always shrugged off? Or will he balk at the real-life complications and strike out completely?

Francesca Kade is an independent goal-getter.

As one of the only female strength coaches in the league, she’s used to invading the boys’ club. After putting up with being passed over and not promoted for a number of seasons, she’s finally got her shot.

A consummate professional with blinders on, there is no way anything will screw up all she hopes to achieve. Well, except for maybe the new employee with eyes the color of ocean waves and a smirk that’s the definition of sin. When they catch fire in the southern heat, it’s almost impossible to put it out.

Until she finds out that he’s her boss’s boss’s boss.

Burned from the betrayal and panicking with a fresh secret of her own, Frankie is shocked when she lands her ultimate dream job. There is no way she’s turning it down. But when she bumps into Sinclair on day one, all of the old feelings and new problems come hurtling at her like a baseball to the face.

Will she ever be able to trust that he’ll put both her and his responsibilities before his vices? Or will their differences cost them the game?

other than the bad boy, star Premier League footballer, Rush McKenzie.

British. Tattooed. Sexy. A man currently at the center of a huge scandal.

The goal? To convince him to stay in the States.

But what’s wrong with a little fun in the meantime? No strings. No sweet nothings. Just a way

#ReviewBlitz: Shook by @Sonya_Jesus ~ #3stars

Hate made him famous and fame took his sister in SHOOK, Sonya Jesus’ new romantic suspense. This twisted Cinderella retelling brings to life a killer obsessed by a True Crime Blogger and her internet famous crush. Fans of dark fairytale retellings with a splash of crime will love this new adult romance. Part of the Internet Famous Collection, Shook is now LIVE!

Only on Amazon + Read for FREE on Kindle Unlimited

💻 Amazon ➳

💻 Goodreads ➳

Hate made me famous. Fame took my sister.

As of midnight on my twenty-first birthday, I became the wealthiest man in America, and my sister went missing. Given her history, my parents insist on saving face in the cruel world of the filthy rich. They’re betting she’s on a bender with her latest boy-toy, but she’s not.

Nola would never miss my birthday, at least not willingly. Something’s not right, and I don’t give a lick about family rules or distracting myself with the fine print on the morality clause. Locking down a future with some random chick won’t find my sister or give me the answers I want.

Though, I rather those answers not come from Norah, the pain-in-the-ass wannabe blogger who is living in my home and insisting on cleaning up my act. Someone forgot to tell her she’s a maid, not a publicist. But when one of her few True Crime subscribers writes to her about my sister, the clues lead us on a hunt for a killer.

What we find… leaves us shook.


Norah hates the Brighton name and everything it represents. She especially dislikes Ledger. He was once a bit of happiness in her childhood, but ever since his family kicked hers out of their home, he’s been her #1 enemy. But, needing funds to finish school, she accepts a job at the Brighton estate, spurred on by the rumors that one of the Brighton sisters is missing and feared dead. When clues start popping up all over, Ledger & Norah form unlikely allies.

Based very loosely on Cinderella, Shook is a twisted whodunnit that left me wondering if I had forgotten to read a prequel or something. I loved the games and twisted puzzles, but I felt a bit confused, especially near the end. New characters and connections were introduced in a rush, leaving my head spinning for a bit.

I recommend it to mystery/thriller fans who love a good puzzle.

I voluntarily read & reviewed an ARC of this book.


Copyright 2020 @ Sonya Jesus

Butt-ass naked.

That’s how he opens the damn door, dangling ornaments and all. I pry my eyes away and glance at the pig-sty, he calls a bedroom. Clothes are thrown everywhere, books and magazines all over the floor, every surface has a mug, and it stinks. Considering the whole house looks immaculate, I’m wondering what happened here.

Orin clears his throat, which does little to get Ledger to cover up. “Mr. Ledger, can you please find something suitable to cover up with? Norah has taken anatomy; she doesn’t need a study session.”

Accidentally, I snort aloud and quickly cover it up with a cough when both men’s eyes land on me. Ledger rests against the door frame, not an ounce of shame on his two-hundred-pound muscular body.

“The smell,” I offer as a cover-up, “it got all up in my nostrils.” The last thing I need is a lesson on anything from the Internet’s porn star.

“Ah, yes.” Orin raises his hand in the air, inviting me in without Ledger okaying it. “Mr. Ledger has been having issues dealing with his sister’s supposed disappearance. Nine days, I assume, is enough social isolation.”

“Isolation?” I ask the naked man, who has not budged, without making eye contact. No way in hell am I going inside if he doesn’t move. His massive form takes up most of the space—not in height, because rich people have something against normal-sized doors, but in width.

His wide arms are almost unnatural and yet utterly fascinating this up close and personal. The dips and grooves of his pectorals are magnetic, nearly sinking my jaw to the floor when the future-doctor in me counts each abdominal.

For anatomical purposes, I tell myself. Symmetrical. No malformations anywhere on him. Well, except his personality.

Ledger flicks his gorgeous grayish-blue eyes over me before rolling his head and removing himself from the doorframe, turning his perfectly sculpted ass to me as he strolls over to his bed and picks up a pair of dark denim jeans. “You could leave me alone for another few days, O.”

“To do what? Mope around?” Orin picks up a shirt from a folded pile on the desk and throws it at him.

Ledger expertly catches it in the air, flexing his biceps in the process. “To grieve. To deal with losing a sister,” he spits back.

“She’s not dead,” I pipe up as I come inside. There’s no point in dismissing the opportunity of talking to a source.

Ledger stops midway, one pant leg up at his knee, and glares at me. Orin finds my statement intriguing, or maybe he’s just constipated. He kind of looks like he’s holding in a tank of gas between his butt cheeks, and this place smells like methane and decomposition.

“Excuse me?” Ledger clips out, earning me a sympathetic look from the house manager.

“Mr. Ledger—” Orin’s intervention is quickly cut short.

“Has she signed the NDA?”

About Sonya

Sonya’s a nerd—a cool nerd—who loves science, books, make-up and unicorns. She even has unicorn slippers and unicorn plushes adorn her office. It’s not obsession (or so she says), it’s simply an ode to her imaginative side.

She believes in fairytales and in the beautiful things a mind can conjure. She’s a firm believer of empowering the crazy fictional ideas, putting them down on paper (figurative paper because she’s not a fan of writing in notebooks), and letting them flourish into a story. Sometimes that story is about psychos and murders.

Don’t believe me? Ask her in any of her social media. She’s all about those connections.

“There’s so much potential in a dream, not exploring it seems like such a waste of something absolutely beautiful.”

A Cocky Hero Club Novel
Author: M. Piper
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: October 4, 2020
Vi Keeland and Penelope Ward are excited to bring you the Cocky Hero Club: original works from various authors inspired by Keeland and Ward’s New York Times bestselling Cocky Bastard series.
When my dad cut me off and locked my bank accounts, my so called life was so called over. Thank god for my uncle Carter who gave me a roof over my head while I figured my shit out. Where does a guy who never worked a day in his life even begin rebuilding? A cheap ass apartment complex, of course. 
Enter Lauren Monroe. We met in an elevator and I felt her hatred immediately…which naturally pulled me in. I latched on to her to teach me the way of the poor, and in doing so I developed something I never felt for a girl before.
Real feelings.
Just when I thought life had thrown me the biggest twist it did, I went and fell for a girl that hated me. But that wasn’t the worst part.
The hardest part was finding out the truth and not being able to do a damn thing about the fallout from it.
Pretentious Playboy is an enemies to lovers romance inspired by Playboy Pilot.

Poor rich boy Chris is homeless and penniless in a matter of hours. He can’t quite believe his luck when, on top of finding a new place to live, he has an unforgettable encounter with a woman who seems to despise him on sight alone. Her apparent dislike intrigues rather than repels him, as he finds himself tethered to her in an unexplainable way.

Lauren doesn’t hate Chris – not really. He represents a part of her life she’d rather forget. But as they become closer, she soon realises it will have to be all or nothing at all with him.

A fun, steamy read, Lauren & Chris’ story will keep you entertained and stuck to its pages as they banter back and forth and discover love and life together.

I recommend this book.

I voluntarily read & reviewed an ARC of this book.
