BRASH BOSS
BY A.S. ROBERTS
NICO
Ruthless, unstoppable, downright relentless.
I know what they say about me,
And they’re right. 
I’m Vegas, mafia royalty. I deal with business the only way I know how, arrogantly.
But, in life listening to the matriarch of our family is really all that matters.
However, settling down,
Getting married,
And playing it straight,
Just isn’t me.
But what Nonna wants,
Nonna gets.
BARBARA
The roll of the dice,
The flip of the cards,
I love it all.
The risk,
The chance,
The odds.
Which is why I’m here again,
In over my head,
Drowning in debt,
With no clear way out.
But when a sexy, commanding mob boss makes me an offer.
I can’t refuse.
After all,
It can’t be that hard being married to the Brash Boss. 
But deals struck over money should never involve the heart…

BITTER EDGE
BY ARIANA ROSE
He was sent to put my body and dreams back together. Were they things I even wanted anymore?
Spencer Broten was a pain in my backside from the moment we met.
I was conned into going on a road trip with him. Within hours, I was realizing he wasn’t just my trainer. He was much more.
This unnamed, unplanned winding road turned into us getting to know each other as we truly were.
Two broken bodies, two broken souls finding out we were more the same than different.
The line between hate and love is a bitter edge.
Outside or Inside.
Where will we land?

TOUGH CUSTOMER
BY ERIN ST. CHARLES

Dear Ida,
The arrogant man at the dry cleaners made my bad day worse.
So, the last thing I expected was for him to offer me a job.
I shouldn’t have accepted—not if I wanted to maintain my sanity.
But the allure of a big paycheck overpowered my reservations.
Now, I know he’s just as infuriating as a boss as he was the first day we met; yet, the sparks that fly between us are far more than on a professional level.
The more time I spend with him, helping him secure investors for his new restaurant chain, the harder it is to ignore the attraction between us.
Playing with fire, you’re bound to get burned.
And this man has seared himself into my soul.
Tell me, Ida, is there hope for our future, or is it impossible to really please this Tough Customer?

COCKY JERK
BY JANINE INFANTE BOSCO
It was just a typical manic Monday until the blue and red lights flashed behind my Harley. The cop who pulled me over was good-looking, if you’re into clean cut guys with expressive eyes. He was also cocky and gave me three tickets.

One for speeding.
Another for blowing a light.
And the third for not producing an insurance card.
Jerk.
When he finally let me go, I realized I was more than an hour late for my first day as an intern for the infamous advice column, Ask Ida.
So much for trying to be the only one in my family with a legit job.
Lucky for me, my new boss, Soraya, didn’t fire me on the spot. But that’s where my luck ran out.
A couple of weeks later, in between fetching coffee and finding the missing paperclips, I received a text message from my dad, the president of the Corrupt Hellraisers MC, ordering me to the compound.
Yeah, try explaining that to your new boss.
Hey, I’ve gotta go. Everyone in my family is a criminal and we’re all on lockdown.
You’re fired.
Sure enough when I arrived at the clubhouse, everyone was in cuffs and the jerk who pulled me over was the one ushering my father out of the clubhouse.

They say you never see the bad guys coming.
Well, I didn’t see the cocky jerk coming either.

MISTER DIMPLES
BY LINDSAY BECS
Is it possible to crush on a voice?
My favorite thing to listen to is Juniper Love’s podcast show, Go, Sports!.  Hearing her uninformed, teasing commentary on every game she watches makes me laugh—even when it’s my team she’s talking about.  I might be her biggest fan.
I thought Troy Tipton was just a nice guy with a gorgeous smile.  Until I learned he was a fan-favorite NFL star quarterback.  The same one gracing magazine covers with his irresistible dimples.  The same one I mock on my show.
When we start dating, the explosive chemistry we share is impossible to ignore. But can we keep our opposing careers from ruining what we have before we even begin?  Or will we let them destroy everything good that’s between us?

ELIGIBLE EX-HUSBAND
BY MARIE JOHNSTON

The man in the magazine spread, the one dubbed the most eligible bachelor, is my ex-husband.
Six months ago, Simon’s company was never more successful, just like our marriage was never emptier. I was a stay-at-home mom with a sugar daddy who had no time to pass the sugar or be a daddy. I asked for a divorce and he let me go, just like that.
Now I’m mending my broken heart and finding myself while being a strong role model for our girls. But when my mom gets sick, I need help, and he’s there like a superhero in a tailored suit. And when my mom recovers, he’s still there, doing grocery runs and braiding our girls’ hair.
I don’t want to hang my hopes on my workaholic ex just because he’s suddenly wearing basketball shorts instead of designer threads, or because he’s giving me that look that melted my heart in college.
Chemistry was never our problem. I don’t want to trust that he’s changed only find out that once again I’m not worth fighting for. He needs to prove that he’ll be as ruthless about us as he is in the boardroom.

SEXY SEAMAN
BY PAIGE STEELE

I’m sick of following suit, doing everything my dad thinks I should. I’m my own woman, and I know just how I’m going to prove it. I went through six years of college to earn my master’s in business to please him, while I wanted a degree in interior design, so I worked my tush off and received my bachelor’s in that too. Now that I’m twenty-four, I’m going to do a one-eighty in my life and take a job I never saw myself doing, just to please me. It really can’t be too hard to serve food to people, make beds, and use a feather duster…can it? I’ll be sailing away and forgetting all my worries. Or so I think, until I look up to see the sexy captain, with his white hat on, step in front of me and I meet Reed Nichols.
Growing up while traveling the open seas made my decision to take over the family business the easiest one I’ve ever had to make. After four years in college taking accounting classes, I went after my true dream…a captain’s license. I always knew I’d follow in my father’s footsteps; I just didn’t think it’d be this soon. Right before he passed, he asked me to do just that and I’ve never looked back. Right now, my life is perfect, just the way I want it. I run the company my father founded and drive a million-dollar yacht every day. I pick and choose who lies in my bed, and I’ve never allowed anyone there for more than a night or two. No one has ever kept my attention any longer than that. Then I look down to see the long legs of a cabin stewardess walking toward my boat and I meet Maci Foster.

RECKLESS REBEL
BY T.C. MATSON

Kenlyn
Trusting others means taking risks, and that’s hard for me to do.
I mean, when your mother abandons you as a child, you’re left with scars.
I’m not reckless.
I’m not wild.
I play by the rules.
It’s safer that way.
Or so I thought…
Catching my boyfriend cheating on me confirmed every reason I’d kept my heart guarded.
But being kissed by a sexy-as-sin stranger in front of him proved how little I was in control.
It was passionate, electric, and it rocked me to my core.
He stole my breath but replaced it with anger.
I stormed away without so much as a name exchange.
When our paths cross again unexpectantly, he refuses to let me go this time.
He inserts himself into my life so much, he becomes hard to ignore.
He makes me feel alive and pushes my limits.
He’s everything I’m not.
But he’s hiding something. And those secrets threaten to shatter me right along with the trust I’ve started granting him.
Asher
I’m a tattoo artist. My life is fast, hard, and exciting. Just the way I like it.
I’m reckless.
I’m wild.
I’m a rebel.
I live life on the edge.
My life was a revolving door of fun and women until a jaw-dropping beauty caught her man cheating on her.
All I could think about was making sure he realized his mistake…and rubbing it in his face.
I laid a kiss on her to rival all others.
But I wasn’t prepared for the kiss to knock me to my knees as she stormed off without giving me her name.
When I run into her again a few weeks later, I’m determined not to let her go.
The more I get to know her, the more I want her.
And the more she’s around, the more she realizes I come with secrets.
Ones I share with no one. Ever.
Her trust issues won’t allow me to keep things to myself.
It’s either bare my secrets or risk losing the only thing that makes me truly happy.

Audio Review: REDEMPTION by Garrett Leigh, Narrated by Dan Calley

 

 

REDEMPTION – Narrated by Dan Calley,standalone.

Length: 6hrs 26mins

Reformed gangster Luis falls hard for his boss. When friendship turns to love, it’s up to Paolo to convince him second chances are worth the pain.

Luis Pope is back on the street after a six-year stretch in prison, but life on the outside seems just out of reach, especially when the whole neighborhood knows his face for all the wrong reasons.

Paolo’s temper makes it hard to keep staff, and he knows Luis’ rep all too well. But his nonno believes in redemption, and Luis isn’t the tough guy Paolo remembers. Prison has left its mark, inside and out, and all the kindness in the world can’t fix the three inch scar on Luis’s skull.

And it can’t keep ghosts locked up. Luis is the best worker Paolo’s ever had, and Luis is happier than he’s ever been. But his old life doesn’t want to stay in the past. Trouble comes to call, and when it makes him an offer he can’t refuse, keeping Paolo safe hurts the most.

Redemption is an angsty, stand-alone M/M romance novel, with second chances, found family, friends-to-lovers, and buckets of hurt/comfort themed loveliness.

4.5 Stars

I recently read and reviewed this book and truly enjoyed it, and I enjoyed the audio version just as much. I really Dan Calley does a fantastic job of bringing characters and their stories to life and he definitely did just that with Luis and Paolo! I love his unique ability to capture the differences in characters and the nuances of the stories. He brings so much emotion and feeling and I truly enjoyed listening to this book. 

I’m a big Garrett Leigh fan and it’s because of books like Redemption. It’s gritty and raw and also so full of love and yes redemption. That really is the perfect title for Luis and Paolo and their story. The characters are complex and imperfect and this is their new beginning.

Luis has just been released after serving six years in prison, now he’s got to find a new path, one that hopefully keeps him away from his brother and the gang. After getting out, he’s not sure where to go, he has little money and ends up in a little restaurant that he remembers. It’s there he comes across Paolo, he runs the place and remembers Luis, but it’s not quite the same Luis he once knew. He decides to take a chance and offer him a job, hoping that it’s not going to be something he regrets.

There’s a great connection between these two, but they certainly face some major issues. We learn a lot about these two, about their pasts and how they’ve ended up where they are. It really does add a lot to this story, understanding their reasoning and how and why they are making decisions. Especially when it comes to Luis and his relationship with his toxic brother. There is also a good amount of angst as well, I had to keep reading just to see what was going to happen and how it would all come together. As usual with a Garrett Leigh book, this book had my heart on edge and I loved it! It really is a wonderful and intense read with these two really getting a new start and real love

Blurb: I’ve fallen victim to a heinous act. An act so vile, so downright dirty, that I’m not sure as a twenty-year-old man I’ll ever recover. Brace yourself, because what I’m about to tell you might have you gasping in secondhand horror. Ready? Here it goes . . . I’ve recently become the pawn of a meddling mom. Yes . . . A MEDDLING MOM–who’s been trying to set me up all summer. Now, I understand it’s not a crime for a mother to want her child to fall in love, but when she makes it her relentless MISSION, the heinous act should be classified as a misdemeanor at least. Of course, my mom, the evil matriarch in the devil’s leggings, made her final stab at finding a girl for me days before I went back to college. And I hate to admit it, but she saved a doozy for last. A titan in black skinny jeans. A boss of nonchalance. And a girl who would not only turn my life upside down, but do it while juggling a soccer ball, looking effortlessly gorgeous around campus, and is one hundred percent against relationships. Of any sort. Thanks, Mom.

   

Prologue:

**LINCOLN** I’ve fallen victim to a heinous act. An act so vile, so downright dirty, that I’m not sure . . . as a son, as a member of society, as a twenty-year-old man . . . I will ever recover. Ever. I see the concern in your eyes, your hand wandering up your chest to clutch the collar of your sensible cotton shirt, scared to find out the truth. Brace yourself against something sturdy, because what I’m about to tell you might just knock you back on your ass in horror. *Deep breaths, everyone* I’ve recently become the pawn of a meddling mom. Yup, you read that right. A MEDDLING mom. The bane of a son’s existence. I know what you’re wondering . . . what did she do? Make me pick up my socks during summer break? *Eye-rolling* *Woe is you* *Grow up* You grow up! Ehhh, that was a little harsh. But before you go and put your judgy face on, you need to know the difference between a nagging mom and a meddling mom. A nagging mom is one who storms into the living room while you’re trying to watch the series finale of Game of Thrones, complaining about the dishes in the sink you swore you’d take care of once you found out who took the throne. Nag, nag, nag—part of the daily routine of the person who birthed you, or in this case, one of two moms who adopted me. But a meddling mom, oh boy. They’re a fresh kind of hell wrapped up in high-waisted leggings and muted tunics. This isn’t some everyday mom who texts you GIFs of squirrels playing with a hula hoop. Nope, meddling moms have an agenda. An agenda that they believe benefits their children. But it really benefits them . . . and only them. In this case, my mom’s agenda: get Lincoln to fall in love. I understand it’s not a crime for a mother to want her child to fall in love, but let me tell you. When she makes it her mission when you’re home from college, it should be classified as a misdemeanor. That’s right, all freaking summer, my mom has made it her duty to set me up with girl after girl, all of whom she’s met in our hometown Kalamazoo, Michigan. I’d like to say I’m exaggerating that she made a list and set me up with every eligible girl—one by one—but I’m not. I saw the Excel spreadsheet on her computer. Girls who were highlighted in red were a no-go. Girls in green still had a fighting chance. Girls in yellow? Apparently, I had lukewarm interaction with them, but they showed promise. Why is she so desperate for me to fall head over heels? Can you believe she’s been spending time on the Internet, researching relationship statuses of major league baseball players? Well, she has. Too much time. And she said she didn’t want me to end up forty, about to retire, with nothing to say for my life other than that I was able to throw a ball off a mound. She also wants a girl to fawn over. When my mothers were adopting, Mom hoped for a girl, but Mama hoped for a boy. Don’t get me wrong, my mom loves me more than anything—hence the meddling and nagging—but she always wanted to do girly things with me, like have tea parties, get our toenails done, shit like that. Side note: I’ve done the pedicure thing with her, and it’s not that bad. But she wants a daughter, and apparently, a daughter-in-law is the next best thing. Which brings me back to my summer of “not love.” I wanted nothing to do with these girls and after my mom’s eighth attempt to set me up—yes, eight—I told her enough was enough. I was done. And thankfully she listened . . . until the last Saturday before I left for school. The evil matriarch in the devil’s leggings made her final stab at finding a girl for me. And I hate to admit it, but she saved a doozy for last. A fucking titan in black skinny jeans. A boss of nonchalance. And a girl who will not only turn my life upside down, but do it while juggling a soccer ball, looking effortlessly gorgeous, and is one hundred percent against relationships. Of any sort. Thanks, Mom. *Thumbs up* Your meddling has made me absolutely miserable.

Jenn’s Review

5 Stars

This is the third book in this series and these definitely should be read in order and it is a fantastic, perfect addition! I loved this book, it was everything I wanted! I really do love this entire series! 

So, as the Conner and Rocky story continues, they are now officially dating while also dealing with a new baby dropped in their laps. On top of that Rocky is overwhelmed with work and is hardly ever home. It’s definitely a lot for a new couple to take on, especially when Rocky gets shot.

This was such a fun read!! I love Rocky and Conner and even though they were plagued with drama it is such a great story! There’s the mystery side of trying to figure out what happened with Rocky along with the fake calls and then there is the growing relationship. Just perfect, I loved it, Rocky, Conner, River and now Ryder so own me! I can easily say this series has been a favorite for me this year and I’m already looking forward to the next book!

I’m the only Dixon brother to step up when our family crumbled.

When I took over the ranch, I lost everything, career included.

My heart hadn’t been in it anyway. It couldn’t. A girl left with it over a dozen years ago.

Now she’s back.

Different hair. New style. Kid clutching her hand.

Not a trace of the Madison Black I knew. A down-home girl with the sweetest smile and drawl. The rebel with a spirit that glowed so bright.

But with one conversation, that girl starts to reappear.

One kiss, the years apart fade away.

One night, I vow to never let her go again.

But some pasts refuse to stay buried. And when the heart-wrenching truth behind her leaving is revealed, it might ruin us all.

When she’s not diving into the world of her characters, some of her hobbies include hiking, snowboarding, traveling, and long walks on the beach . . . which roughly translates to being a homebody and dishing out movie quotes with her hubby. She has a weakness for crude-humored movies and loves curling up in a fluffy blanket during a thunderstorm . . . or under one in a bathtub if there are tornados. That way she can pretend they aren’t really happening.

Review Tour: The Anti-Boyfriend by Penelope Ward

I’m a bit late on this post, some technical difficulties set me back this week, but I’m excited to be a part of the Review Tour for The Anti-Boyfriend by Penelope Ward!

Happy Reading!

~Jenn

Title: The Anti-Boyfriend
Author: Penelope Ward
Genre: Standalone Contemporary Romance
Release Date: August 31, 2020
Blurb
From New York Times bestselling author Penelope Ward, comes a new standalone novel.
At first, my neighbor Deacon frustrated me.
Sure, he was great-looking and friendly.
But our walls were thin, and on occasion, he’d bring women to his place and keep me awake while he “entertained” them.
As a single mother to an infant, I didn’t appreciate it.
So, finally it was my turn.
When my daughter wouldn’t stop wailing one night, Mr. Manwhore came knocking on my door.

Miraculously, at the sound of his voice, Sunny stopped crying. And when he held her…she eventually fell asleep in his arms.
Deacon was rough on the exterior, but apparently on the inside? Mr. Single-and-Ready-to-Mingle was a baby whisperer.
After that night, we became friends.
He’d go for coffee runs. Come over to chat. Normal friend stuff.
But over time, our conversations ran deeper. We got closer.
Until one night we crossed the line.
Our friendship turned into a complicated mess.
I’d gone and fallen for a guy who’d sworn off commitment and kids.
I knew Deacon was starting to care for me too, even though Sunny and I didn’t fit into any plan he’d ever imagined for himself.
He was wrong for me—so wrong that I’d dubbed him the “anti-boyfriend.”
Then why did I wish more than anything that I could be the one woman to change him?

Jenn’s Review
4 Stars

This was a sweet, heartfelt read from Penelope Ward! I do have to say it didn’t grab me as much as her books normally do, but I did enjoy it! Especially Deacon, I did love him.

Deacon and Carys are neighbors, but don’t really know each other. Well, Carys knows how often Deacon brings women home because she can hear everything through the walls, and he’s pretty active. It’s keeping her awake and with a 6 month old baby, she definitely cherishes the sleep she can get. One day she decides to confront Deacon about the noise and what begins is something very special. They definitely start out as friends and they are cute together. I loved their banter and easy relationship.

There are some twists and turns for these two though, ones that threaten the relationship that they are building. I thought there was a good balance of the emotional and fun, their story felt very genuine. Even through the struggles, I loved seeing Carys and Deacon fall in love and even learn to trust again. Definitely a heart-felt read!

Excerpt Blitz & Giveaway: Falling into You by A.L. Jackson

Falling into You
A Falling Stars stand-alone romance from A.L. Jackson
Coming September 21st

I swooped her up. She squealed in surprise, and then she wrapped her arms around my neck and melted into me.

I carried her into her room. The whole time, I kissed her slow and desperate.

She whimpered and sighed, that honeyed tongue playing and dancing and teasing against mine.

Strokes and licks.

Desire lapped and sizzled and flamed.

Growing in strength.

I only stopped long enough to shut her door and click the lock before I set her in the middle of her room. “Let me look at you.”

“I think you’ve been lookin’ at me all night,” she teased.

A rough chuckle curled up my chest. “Not possible to pay attention to anything else when I’ve got heaven staring back at me.”

Heat crept up her chest and splashed her cheeks.

Girl so fucking sexy and so fucking sweet.

“You wreck me, Violet. Absolutely destroy me.”

“You ruined me the first time you touched me.”

“Hope you’re good with me touchin’ you time and time again.” It came out a warning.

She breezed out the wisp of a sigh. “I’m just fine with you ripping me apart while you’re keeping me together.”

Lust burst in my blood. A dam breaking way and sweeping away all control.

Need overwhelming.

Crushing.

Guts tied up and body aching to get lost in this girl.

“Gonna devour every inch of that delicious body,” I muttered, voice scraping the heated air.

Energy banged against the walls.

Trembled underfoot.

“You better.” I heard it for what it was. A demand.

My hands drove into her hair, and I jerked her mouth against mine in a punishing kiss.

She returned it, this girl giving me her all.

My hands found her neck, and I rode them all the way down to tease at her nipples through the clingy fabric. “This dress. This fucking dress, Violet. You are killing me, baby. Can’t handle how bad I want you. Every second. Every day. Not ever gonna let you go.”

“That’s good because I won’t let you leave me.” She pushed her hands to my chest and ran them up under my jacket, shoving it from my shoulders. I twisted out of it and let it drop to the floor, my hands rushing back to grip her by the hips.

I tugged her against my throbbing cock. “Feel that? What you do to me?”

Violet whimpered, and she started jerking through the buttons on my shirt. “I want to feel it. Want to feel it all.”

Yes-fucking-please.

A fiery, passionate MM romance novel from #1 New York Times Bestselling author Lauren Blakely…

Ever hear the story about the bodyguard who falls for the rock star? Yeah, it never ends well. Each day I remind myself that it’s my job to protect Stone. And nowhere in the job description does it say I should lust after the charismatic, charming rock star. But every night I spend with him the attraction grows more intense, electric, undeniable. Until one night in a limo when we combust. One time only will have to be enough. Because the mistakes from the past are chasing me. And If I give in again, I might lose everything. Good thing I’m strong, determined, and dedicated to resisting him. But after a close call at his concert, all bets are off. And in his hotel room, we strike a brand new deal. One that can’t end well for me, but I do it anyway. Because sometimes you grab hold of the desire. And other times, the desire takes hold of you.

Blurb

I’ve had my fair share of less than proud relationship moments, but waking up married to my brother-in-law’s best friend is a new low.

A drunken wedding to a man who already rejected me once? Check. A hefty bet about how long it will last? Check. My feisty new husband, determined to make our friends pay up? Double check.

I’ve never managed to make a real relationship last nearly a year, there’s no way Daniel will stick around long enough to win this bet. The only problem is the longer he stays, the more the lines blur between what’s real and what’s for show. Does he feel it too, or am I totally screwed?

*Screwed is a woke up married, faking it to their friends but also totally hooking up, sweet, STEAMY love story that happens to be the fourth book in the Four Bears Construction series. There are no bear shifters in this series, only the OTHER kind of bears.

Excerpt

“You know what will make you feel better than booze? Dancing.” He doesn’t even wait for my response before grabbing my arm and hauling me out of my seat. I stumble a little, the four shots I took in quick succession going straight to my head.

Daniel slips his hand into mine without hesitation. His skin is warm and his palm is soft and smooth in contrast to my own. He’s slight, but his grip is strong, and he seems to have a special talent for making people get the hell out of his way, never slowing his steps as he parts the crowd and leads me to the makeshift dance floor.

He turns to face me as soon as we find an open space. In an instant, I watch as the prim, proper man I thought he was slips away, replaced by a man who’s smiling like a mad man and dancing like he’s trying to earn next month’s rent, swinging his hips from side to side and shaking his ass. It’s enough to lift the heaviness from my chest, a smile breaking over my face as I join him in swaying to the beat of the fast paced song.

“There’s a smile,” he says, reaching over and running his fingers through my thick beard with too much familiarity and not enough all at once. Why did I decide Daniel wasn’t my type again? Because right now I’m pretty sure he’s checking every box I can think of. “Don’t worry about that douche, okay? You were too good for him anyway.”

I chuckle. “You hardly know me. Maybe I’m a douche too,” I challenge.

“I know enough,” he shouts over the music, spinning around so his ass is toward me and swiveling his hips invitingly. He turns his head, looking at me over his shoulder, and winks.

His ass looks tight and firm, perfect to dig my fingers into, to spread his cheeks apart and bury my face between them. My cock perks up, pressing against the zipper of my jeans.

The song changes to one with a slower tempo, and Daniel turns back to face me again, stepping closer and looping his arms around my neck without hesitation, pressing his body against mine. I roll with it, wrapping my arms around his middle and swaying to the song with him.

“So, what’s the deal? Do you have shitty taste or bad luck?” he asks conversationally.

“Both?” It wasn’t intended to sound like a question, but fuck if I know. Maybe I’m cursed. Or maybe a happy ending was never in the cards for me to begin with.

Daniel bobs his head in understanding. “Relationships are bullshit.”

“You don’t mean that,” I argue, tilting my head back at Ren and Cole. “Look how happy they are. That’s not bullshit.”

“They’re freaks,” he says with a laugh. “The way I see it, it’s like winning the lottery. Do some people win? Of course. But it’s only enough people to keep the rest of us scratching duds the rest of our lives.”

“That’s goddamn depressing,” I sigh.

“Shit, I’m supposed to be cheering you up, not making it worse,” he says, pulling an apologetic face. “What I meant was everyone totally finds their soulmate and lives happily ever after. If they didn’t, then we’d all have to sue rom coms and like boycott all music, and hell, I don’t know, the Fleshjack company would go out of business.”

“I’m not sure that any of that checks out, but thanks for trying.”

Author K.M.Neuhold is a complete romance junkie, a total sap in every way. She started her journey as an author in new adult, MF romance, but after a chance reading of an MM book she was completely hooked on everything about lovely- and sometimes damaged- men finding their Happily Ever After together. She has a strong passion for writing characters with a lot of heart and soul, and a bit of humor as well. And she fully admits that her OCD tendencies of making sure every side character has a full backstory will likely always lead to every book having a spin-off or series. When she’s not writing she’s a lion tamer, an astronaut, and a superhero…just kidding, she’s likely watching Netflix and snuggling with her husky while her amazing husband brings her coffee.
