This time he’s playing for keeps.

The Mastermind, a standalone novella set in the Rivers Wilde World from Wall Street Journal bestselling author Dylan Allen and 1,001 Dark Nights is now available!

He lives under a golden spotlight.
I’m shackled to a past that must stay hidden.

Omar Solomon is the king of the comeback.
Ten years ago his career as a star athlete ended in injury and scandal.
He may have traded in his cleats for Gucci loafers, but he’s been as victorious in the boardroom as he was on the pitch.

He returns to London, wealthy, influential, and powerful beyond measure.
And he spends every weekend in the pub where I work.
A law student with a night job and a dark past,
I’m hardly the type of woman a man like him would notice.

Or so I thought.

When he offers me a no-strings-attached affair,
I forget all the reasons I should say no.
He’s straight out of my dreams—
with a body and a mouth made for sinning.

Our passion turns my gray existence into a vibrant, colorful life.
But it has an expiration date.

When his time in London is over, we will be, too.
And it will be for the best.
Because he can never find out who I really am.

But my Mastermind has set his sights on a new goal: me.
And this time he’s playing for keeps.

Review

Dylan Allen has been on my TBR list for some time, but this blurb of this novella really caught my attention. It hinted at intrigue and I was hooked.

“Staying alive and living aren’t the same thing, and I’ve only ever been able to do one at a time.”

Jules has been beaten down in life, and she’s always trying to claw herself out of the depressing hole of her life. Working multiple jobs to assuage her guilt and keep her demons at bay, she is blindsided by the attraction and depth of feeling she develops for Omar, former world famous athlete. Though she originally thought they’d be temporary, her heart has already decided that Omar will stay in it permanently. When her past comes knocking, though, their new relationship will be put to the test.

Omar is a hero you love almost immediately. He’s drawn to Jules in a way he’s never been drawn to a woman before.

“…the beauty that first caught my notice has become the secondary driver of my attraction and respect for her.”

Confused and hurt with family issues, he finds peace in Jules, and seeks to become hers, too. But when the woman he’s falling for suddenly begins keeping secrets, he’s worried that he’s been taken for a fool all over again.

I loved this read. It was romantic, with bits of suspense and lots of twists and turns – but pretty inspiring. It was longer than I expected a novella to be, but it was a satisfying read. At the end, I found myself wishing for more of Jules & Omar. I very much enjoyed the author’s references to calypso/soca music; I felt seen!

I recommend this read wholeheartedly and unreservedly. Jules & Omar will wow you.

I voluntarily read & reviewed an ARC of this book.

Excerpt

He cuts through the crowd of people in glamorous garb, crystal cut tumblers or fragile flutes in their wildly gesticulating hands. Yet they seem to move just as he wants them to so that he doesn’t need to turn sideways to accommodate his broad shoulders or taper his remarkably long strides.
Long strides that are bringing him straight toward me.
I barely have time to spin around before he’s right behind me.
“Scotch on the rocks,” he tells the bartender when he slides onto the empty barstool next to me. I disguise my gasp as a cough, place a hand on the bar to steady myself, and stare straight ahead.
The young man nods and grabs a glass. “We’ve got Macallan 18 for the masses, but I’ve got a bottle of Craigelachhie that might be more to your taste.”
“I don’t really care, whichever,” he responds in a voice that’s not rude but doesn’t match the adoration in the server’s. Undeterred, the young man leans forward across the bar and lowers his voice to a loud whisper. “I know you’ve been gone a while, but I’m still a huge fan, Mastermind. Can I snap a selfie?”
To my surprise, Omar doesn’t rebuff the bartender. “Only if you promise you won’t post it for a bit. No one knows I’m in London yet, and I’d like to keep it that way for just a few more weeks.”
I watched an interview from very early on in his career when he was asked about his dislike of public availabilities.
He explained that he understood it was part of the job. So he did it. “I play for the love of the game, and if I had my way, I wouldn’t do any interviews at all. I don’t even know why you want to interview me. I say everything I need to out on that pitch. I get it. I had sports heroes, too. But when they fall off the pedestals you put them on, you swoop in and eat them alive.”
That interview would prove prescient when he left Chelsea years later. The press tore him to shreds for sitting out an entire season, leaving as soon as he became a free agent and basically abandoning London, his fans, and his team.
He still doesn’t talk to the press regularly, but he doesn’t leave their accusations unanswered. He became his own press secretary and posted videos on social media pushing back on false headlines. And when they lost interest, he started sharing his private pictures. And sued newspapers that used his images without his permission.
I watch the exchange between him and the bartender out of the corner of my eye and am giddy that the wickedly sweet dimple is as deep as I’d imagined. And God, I want to lick it. One day, my pretty.
This has to be a sign. He’s so far out of my league, I shouldn’t be able to see him. And at the pub, I wouldn’t dare approach him.
But here I am, close enough to see and touch. And I look good tonight. I’m glad I took special care to send my most fashionable friend off.
The bustier I invested in makes my otherwise unimpressively small breasts look their very best in the very low neckline of my scarlet red minidress. It’s hugging every inch of a body that even CrossFit and a vegan diet couldn’t kill the curves on.
The lighting in this ballroom sets off the healthy glow of my bare legs, shoulders, décolletage, and back that is courtesy of my homemade sugar scrub. It leaves me smelling like a tropical garden at midnight.
Liquid courage and my heels give me height and confidence that override my nerves, and I shoot my shot.
“Do you want to dance?” I ask loudly so there’s no way he won’t hear me.
Those wolf eyes slant down to look at me, unblinking, the smile he’d given the bartender long gone. There’s no flicker of recognition, but there’s no mistaking the interest as he stares at me. He’s never done more than look past me at the pub, so I don’t know why I’m disappointed that he doesn’t recognize me.
“Excuse me? I didn’t hear you,” he says when he finally speaks. His voice. It’s deep, smooth—no gravel but a lot of bass. And is there anything sexier than an American accent? I smile as widely as I can manage, the punters at the Effra call it my traffic stopping smile. Then I break my golden rule and repeat myself. “Would you like to dance?”
He doesn’t return my smile, and when he turns to look at the dance floor, that scowl reappears. “I don’t dance,” he comments without looking back at me.
I follow his gaze. “Childhood trauma on the dance floor?” I ask with a teasing grin.
His lips tug up a little, but he doesn’t smile. “No. General observation. People look ridiculous when they dance.”
I can’t deny that. But I shake my head in disagreement. “They’re having fun, not putting on a show.”
He shrugs. “That’s not my idea of fun. Like I said, I don’t dance.” He reaches into his jacket pocket, pulls out his phone, and glances at it. He gives me a quick, stiff smile. “I’m sorry, but I have to take this call.” He doesn’t sound sorry at all and doesn’t wait for me to respond before he walks off.
“Ouch,” the bartender drawls, and I want to glare at him and tell him I didn’t ask for his feedback. But he’s so right I can’t be mad.
“I know,” I groan.
“For what it’s worth, if I wasn’t working I wouldn’t have said no.” He grins, and I wish I was attracted to him instead of Omar.
I smile gratefully and take the refill he hands me. But a few sips of it while swaying by myself to a song I’ve never heard before only makes me feel worse.
I put my glass on the tray of a passing server and head to the coat check to collect my things.

Blurb

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.

Review

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.

D is like a forbidden fruit, and I’m aching for a taste.
I didn’t want to be enthralled by the Greek god across the pool,
but the sexual magnetism between us was too strong to fight.
After one night of unbridled passion, I left his bed,
resigned to the fact that I’ll never see him again.
I didn’t count on my dreams haunting me… consuming me.
Causing me the kind of agony only his touch could alleviate.

to be my new, pompous, unapproachable boss.
With Chloe, I want it all.
Waking up in an empty bed after the single best night of my life
hurt me in a way I never expected it would.
I searched for her for an entire month before I found her
in a skin-tight pencil skirt that made me want to bend her over my desk.
I didn’t count on the battle we would fight…
the obstacles that would hinder our path to love.
But I knew we could overcome everything thrown our way.
Even with the odds stacked against us and our very survival at stake.

After one of the best nights of her life with a man she gave a fake name to, Chloe resigns herself to the ‘real’ world of work and moving on. Yet, she desperately misses her one night stand, only to realise that he was a lot closer than she first believed.

REVIEW
Sometimes, the drive for revenge leads us to the best times and best people in our lives. After that, it is up to us to decide how much we let it consume us.

In a tale that is a bit reminiscent of Jason Bourne, Dr. Liam King saves the life of a woman who doesn’t remember her name. In doing so, he unwittingly endangers his own. He’s worried about the timing of her arrival and what it could all possibly mean, since he prefers to keep to himself to hide his past, but his greatest worry is his unexpected and very inconvenient attraction to her. When the fragile cords connecting them are revealed, it will literally be the difference between life and death – for them both.

This book had me on the edge of my seat, trying to figure out who was in charge, who was the real villain and how everything was going to go down. This is another suspense-filled page-turner from R.C. Boldt that I absolutely devoured. Though it was a bit sweeter than I expected – I was cheering for Alexandra & Liam to get together – I did enjoy it. There is an undercurrent of hope that winds through the book; intermingled with the need for vengeance is the search for peace, happiness and love.

I recommend this read unreservedly. It’s also perfect for romance lovers looking for that extra bit of action with their steam.

EXCERPT

“Do you know my name?”
Every muscle in my body goes rigid. “Excuse me?”
Her chest heaves, and the movement clearly causes her pain, but her lips flatten stubbornly. “What is my name?” Those blue eyes are troubled now, fear edging in, while distress practically oozes from her voice.
“You don’t…know your name?” I ask slowly, carefully gauging her reaction.
“No.” She swallows audibly, her eyes filling with tears. “I don’t remember anything.”
Fuck.
I scoot my rolling stool closer and take a seat beside her. Peering at her, I try to decipher whether she’s being completely honest.
I’ve learned to be suspicious over the years, especially with living in part of the denser, remote jungle areas bordering the coast.
“Well, what I can tell you is”—I lace my fingers casually—“you’re not pregnant, you have an IUD for birth control, and the panel I ran on you says you’re negative for any sexually transmitted diseases.
“You’re also blood type O, and your X-rays showed some broken bones—both previously incurred and current.
“Two of your ribs on your right side showed current hairline fractures, likely sustained during your…accident.”
I pause for even a flicker of acknowledgment but get nothing. Nothing, that is, except witness her expression bloom with stark terror.
“I removed two bullets from your shoulder and two more from your side near your hip. You also suffered a considerable stab wound.
“The X-rays indicated you most recently broke your index finger on your left hand. It’s since healed.”
She stares down at her hand, now trembling slightly, as if it’s grown a head of its own. I don’t bother informing her of the other bones in her body that indicated a previous break or fracture.
Broken left wrist.
Fracture near the base of her right elbow.
Fractures of most of the small bones in her right foot.
Broken nose.
Fractured jaw.
Straightening her fingers, she wiggles them before her eyes cut to mine. A thread of panic lines her tone. “I should remember something like that, shouldn’t I?”
I scan her features again for evidence of deceit but come up empty.
I’m dealing with a woman who has a severe case of amnesia.
Sonofabitch.

Review

We get the story of the second oldest royal sibling in this installment of the Tattered Royals series.

Sparrow and Breck have had a less than amicable relationship from the moment they met. Yet, the two can’t help sparring with each other. When an enemy comes for Sparrow, she and Breck find themselves growing closer and closer. But with him being the Playboy Prince and her life set in stone in terms of her career, the two have to decide if love is going to be enough to prosper their relationship.

I liked this book. Though it wasn’t as exciting for me as the first one, it was no less a page-turner. However, I felt a bit disappointed with how not-so-bad the villain was. Also, with all the action, I don’t think enough romance was put into the book. Breck & Sparrow didn’t spend much time together on the pages before deep feelings entered the picture.

Still, like I said, the read wasn’t bad. I am still looking forward to more from the secondary characters, so I am eager to see what the next book will be like.

full blurb

Sweeper Cover-front copy

The cocky footballer next door has some serious game…luckily, Daphney Clarke knows how to play.

Zander Williams is the hot new American determined to take European football by storm. His head is so big, it barely fits under his backwards hat. And when he’s recruited to one of the biggest up and coming clubs in London, he’s certain to make his name known.

Managing the building where they live is only one of Daphney’s many jobs. It’s why she has zero patience for the obnoxious American on the other side of the wall who makes the most ungodly noises and likes to answer his door in nothing but a pink tea towel.

Tensions build and after one steamy hallway kiss, neighbor wars quickly shifts into neighbors-with-benefits and that’s a battle they both intend to win.

But Daphney doesn’t know the real reason Zander is in London and now she’s stuck in the middle of a game she didn’t even know she was playing.

This book was super riveting! Full of steam, sweet moments, and secrets, this book was an enjoyable one.

After a rocky start, Daphney and Zander strike a tentative sort of frenemy-ship that eventually extends to include benefits, but underneath it all are two people who are struggling to trust again after great loss.

Filled with the humor, sarcasm and wit that the Harris Brothers series seems to be famous for, this book fits right in. I liked the lead characters, and the way their relationship developed. I also liked that Zander was in touch with his feelings. He was the right combination of cocky and sweet. I liked Daphney’s upfront, bold attitude. She was no pushover, and it made Zander respect her, as well as pursue her harder. Their banter was something I truly enjoyed. It showcased their chemistry, as well as provided a source of humor.

I recommend this read wholeheartedly. The book not only re-envelops us into the Harrison family, but reminds us that sometimes, good family isn’t necessarily related to you by blood.

“…family isn’t about genetics, or DNA, or even the people who raised you – family is about who you love and who loves you.”

“Boop, boop, boop,” a deep voice echoes much too close to my face, and my eyes fly open in terror as I catch sight of Zander Williams’s finger by my nose.

“What are you doing?” I exclaim, scrambling up off my sofa and standing behind the arm of it to put some space between us. I hold my chunky blanket out in front of me like it’s somehow going to protect me from the psychopath currently standing in my flat.

Zander holds his hands up defensively, his eyes wide. “I didn’t mean to scare you!”

I blink back at him as my sleep-fogged mind clears, and I take in the surroundings of my flat. I reach up and touch my nose. “Did you just touch my nose?”

“I booped it.” An awkward smile spreads across his face as he grips the back of his neck. “You were sleeping so cutely. I thought it’d be a funny way to wake you up.”

“Funny?” I repeat, forking my fingers into my messy bun and glancing down to make sure I wasn’t having another wardrobe malfunction in front of him. “You thought it would be funny to break into my flat and touch me?”

His face falls. “Well, when you put it like that, it sounds creepy.”

Blurb:

Five. That’s how old I was when I picked up a ball for the very first time during flag football—something my mom had signed me up for.

 

Nine. That’s when I decided I’d stop at nothing until I played football at the highest level.

 

Fifteen. That’s when my father informed me that the only future I had was working at his private investigation firm.

 

Seventeen. That’s when I tried to escape the future that had been laid out for me. Tried to cut all ties that connected me to my own blood. Spoiler alert: It didn’t work. They still own me.

 

Eighteen. That’s when I was told if I completed this one job, I’d be cut loose. Free. I’d finally be free. It seemed easy enough.

 

Then, I meet her. You know, the one who makes you do all kinds of stupid, wacky stuff because you feel things you’ve never felt before. Yeah … that’s the one.

 

Here’s the real kicker: What happens when the girl you’ve likely already fallen in love with is the one you need to betray in order to leave behind a life you can’t stand?

 

Well, that’s a damn good question. I’m dying to know myself.

Review

Knox is feeling suffocated. He lives and breathes football, but his father wants different things for him. Forced into agreeing to an ultimatum, Knox plans to execute his plan as quickly as possible. But his heart quickly gets stuck on the mark, Sloane Silvine, and refuses to let go. As what was fake soon becomes all too real, he’s forced with the reality that he may just break the heart of the woman he’s in love with.

Sloane is in a college 2 hours away from home to escape the caged feeling in her home. Armed with a To-Do list, and determined to enjoy herself while getting her degree, she isn’t exactly looking for a boyfriend. So, she is confused, surprised then intrigued that Knox would want to work so hard at getting her attention when she plainly tells him she’s not interested. But as she lowers her guard, she realises that Knox might be the best thing she never knew she needed. The secrets lurking in the background and her own family’s issues are just a few of the obstacles in the way.

I liked this read. Knox & Sloane are funny. They joke and banter with each other in a way that I totally envy. Their chemistry is obvious, even though they try to pretend – especially Sloane – that it’s non-existent. Their story makes me curious about Cole & Ally’s story. Ally seems to be a really good friend. I also loved the boys’ camaraderie and friendship with each other.

This is a good read with lots of heat and tension, and heartwarming moments. The epilogues were totally sweet, too.

BLURB

USA Today Bestselling author Brooke O’Brien brings the hate to love feels in this steamy enemies to lovers, underground fighter romance.

Austen Fox always knew how to get under my skin.

When she arrived at our foster home four years ago, I recognized the pain she carried with her.

She deserved more than she had been dealt in life. She’s worthy of far more than I could ever offer her, and that’s why I’ve warned her to stay away.

After her brief stay at Haven Brook, I never expected to see her again, especially not hundreds of miles from where we once lived.

We’ve both had our share of secrets we’ve kept hidden. Secrets we’d fight at everything to stay buried.

When I find out someone is blackmailing Austen, it’s enough to change the game for me and I quit fighting what I always knew to be true. I’ll stop at nothing to take down whoever’s threatening to hurt her and make them pay for what they’ve done.

Even if it means fighting until my last breath.

I’m Wild Irish, and I’m ready for war.

*Wild Irish was previously featured in the Hate to Want You Anthology.

Review

Ryder and Austen met in a group foster home several years ago. Dealing with abandonment issues, he’s tried not to get too attached to anyone, and even though he senses that Austen is different, he pushes her away. Years later when they meet, they find themselves lashing out at each other, with the an undercurrent of attraction. But Austen has problems of her own that could interfere with their new bond.

I liked the push and pull between Austen & Ryder. Though he proclaims to everyone that he hates her, he is protective of her, and goes out of his way to ensure that she is okay in every way. It confuses Austen at first, but as he goes to bat for her, she realises that this may be one time that a person keeps their promises to her.

I liked the read, and enjoyed the bit of suspense.

I voluntarily read & reviewed an ARC of this book, as part of the Hate to Want You anthology.
