Is it an accidental pregnancy, if it’s purposefully planned?

Autumn Kulis wants a baby. It’s that simple and that complicated because one thing stands in her way – she doesn’t have a man in her life. And at almost forty, she isn’t getting any younger. On a two-week trip to her brother’s lakeside cottage, a plan forms. Make a list of three men. Sleep with each of them. Allow nature to take its course. Only, a certain someone gets in her way.

Logan Anders goes with the flow of life. Divorced, single dad, he works hard, and occasionally plays harder. When his college roommate invites him to Lakeside Cottage for two weeks, he hadn’t remembered his best friend’s little sister being so hot. Nor was he a fan of her plan to find a baby daddy. He’s determined to make her list then tear it to shreds leaving him the only man horizontal with her.

When we were forty, we had so much life to live, and a simple proposition could be the start of a second chance at really living.

Amber Reviews: To Catch a Dream by Audrey Carlan

To Catch A Dream, an all-new beautiful and emotional story of sisterhood and love from #1 New York Times bestselling author Audrey Carlan is available now! Guys this book! I adored the first book in this series, so I have been so eager to read Evie and Milo’s story. Man, Audrey did not disappoint!!! So many emotions! Check out my review below. And if you haven’t read book 1 in the Wish Series, What the Heart Wants, go spend some time with Suda Kay and Cameron too!! Happy weekend and happy reading!

~ Amber

The #1 New York Times bestselling author of the worldwide phenomenon Calendar Girl series brings readers a poignant and honest look at life’s most complicated relationships.

When their mother passed away, Evie Ross and her sister were each given a stack of letters, one to be opened every year on their birthday; letters their free-spirited mother hoped would inspire and guide them through adulthood. But although Evie has made a successful career, her desire for the stability and security she never had from her parents has meant she’s never experienced the best life has to offer. But the discovery of more letters hidden in a safe-deposit box points to secrets her mother held close, and possibly a new way for Evie to think about her family, her heart and her dreams.

“Audrey Carlan has created a gem of a story about sisterhood, love, second chances, and the kind of wanderlust that won’t be silenced, reminding us that sometimes the most important journey is the one we take home.” —Lexi Ryan, New York Times bestselling author

Goodness what a beautiful story!! I fell for these Ross sisters reading What a Heart Wants, but I’m not sure I was fully prepared for Evie and Milo. Audrey Carlan has truly outdone herself with this series! Rich, full visuals and so many emotions. Loved the passion between Evie and Milo. Loved seeing Evie be everything from cool and collected to panicked and scared to heartbroken to hopeful and giddy. Audrey takes the reader on an absolute roller coaster of emotions! Throw in some secrets being revealed, some sisterly conflicts and a whole lotta love. To Catch a Dream stole my heart!! ♥️


As the music starts, the double doors open into the huge hotel ballroom. The first set of dancers flows into the room, following one after another while leaving the appropriate amount of space between them. Closing my eyes for a moment, I allow the music to filter through my subconscious and ease away any nervousness or fear. I open my eyes and watch as my sister’s arms flow out to the sides. I mimic her position and follow her in.
Every so often we spin, swaying our arms and skirts, and make exaggerated hip movements along with the music.
Suda Kaye leads to me the right side of the room where I can see her zeroing in on a table with a man with long, dirty-blond hair who only has eyes for her. I glance down at the floor to ensure I haven’t hit my mark yet. I follow until she stops right in front of Camden’s table. I work around a table wedged in between a group of four. She nods at me and I stop on the X.
The music changes and I watch as Suda Kaye lifts her arms and starts the routine I’ve had memorized since I was a child. It’s one we were taught by our mother long ago. It comes to me on autopilot and I get into the music, drop my hips and use the cymbals to accentuate the beats and flow.
I’m having a blast and lose myself to the music. I do a series of hip rolls and spin around to face the other two tables. My breath is knocked right out of my chest as my gaze connects with the coal-black eyes of the only man I’ve ever wanted more than anything.
Milo Chavis.
Swallowing down the surprise I feel, I keep up the dance. Only this time, I feel as though I’m dancing for an audience of one.
His dark gaze leaves mine to slowly track up and down my body. It’s like a featherlight caress I can almost feel from beaded sandaled feet, along my bare legs and gyrating hips, up and over my working abdominal muscles and rolling shoulders. I arch my back and thrust my chest forward as I bend back and forth.
Since I know this dance well, I can take in every inch of his masculine form. He has pitch-black hair that’s parted perfectly down the center and tied tight at the nape of his neck. I know he usually fastens it with leather bands at intervals down his back. His jaw and cheekbones could have been chiseled in stone by Rodin himself they are so defined. His eyebrows are black slashes above his dark eyes and his skin tone is a toasted brown that reminds me of the desert hills on the reservation when they are shaded from the sun at dusk. He’s wearing a black suit with a crisp white dress shirt underneath. At his neck is an intricate bolo tie made of black leather. Twisted rope strings hang down his massive chest; an etched medallion at his strong throat has a thumbprint-size turquoise stone in the center.
One hundred percent Native American.
One hundred percent man.
One hundred percent beautiful.
One hundred percent never meant to be mine.

Breakaway, Take 2: Amber Reviews

Happy weekend!
So Jenn posted her review earlier this weekend for Breakaway from Kindle Alexander. Tonight we bring you my take on this story. Spoiler alert – I loved it too!! Greer and Dallas were everything I love about KA characters. So check out my thoughts below, and as always go 1-click. Happy reading friends.
~ Amber
Greer Lockhart set out to save the world from itself when he organized his first beach cleanup at the age of twelve. Now, as a uber-successful venture capitalist for eco-friendly startups, he doesn’t let anything get in his way—whether personal or professional. When a new fitness app schedules a site-wide cycle race, Greer’s competitive side won’t let him back down. Not even when his undivided attention turns to the one racer he can’t beat: Biker101.
Dallas Reigns learned a long time ago to keep his head low and his focus forward. He gives his all to a business he started with his brothers, BikeBro. But he worries his all might not be enough if they can’t gain traction before their financial ship sinks. A chance meeting with a hard-hitting venture capitalist is just what they need. Until his resistance is tested when the striking blond man shows interest in more than just his company, challenging all Dallas’s etched-in-stone boundaries.
When the illusion of Dallas’s life threatens to crumble under the weight of his own desire, can he find a way to fortify his iron will, or will Greer help him breakaway from the restraints of his past?
amber review

4.75 Stars

Breakaway was full of all the things I have come to expect from a Kindle Alexander story. The characters had depth, drive and passion about life. The story not only explores the world of these characters but also gives us glimpses into beloved characters from other stories. From the start it was clear that Greer and Dallas were on a collision course, and that when they finally collided that neither of their lives would be the same. Man was that true!

I loved Greer and his single-minded focus. He wasn’t your typical successful, rich guy. He really was more concerned with those around him, whether it was his p/I/t/a sister, his friends, his business or his desire to create an environmentally friendly world. Dallas, similarly had a drive to make his world better and to be there for his family. Dallas was so singularly focused that he never takes time for himself, and he is more focused on building his business than acknowledging his own misery. There was something both hopeful and at the same time sad about Dallas, as from the start I could tell he wasn’t living his life authentically. When Greer and Dallas meet it’s hot, and Greer is all about it; Dallas is a bit wasted and once sober is a more than a bit freaked out. Too bad Greer is not daunted in the least and is determined to find a way to make him his mister. The push pull between them as Dallas figures out his feelings was angsty goodness for me. When these two are together you can feel the heat on the page. A true finding our way love story, Breakaway did not disappoint. I loved the characters, loved the way these guys demonstrated their emotions, loved their circle of friends/family. Hoping that KA will give us Ducky’s story next! 

“They weaved words of heartbreak, love, and triumph. They pulled on the heartstrings making me feel all the feels. My heart was full when I turned that last page.” ~ Jill Miller, Embrace The Romance Blog

“Breakaway is everything I want in a romance book. It is sweet and swoon-worthy, and so so romantic. The character depth is extraordinary and from the moment we meet Dallas and Greer, they owned my heart.” ~ E.Muddle, Goodreads Reviewer.

Best Selling Author Kindle Alexander is an innovative writer, and a genre-crosser who writes classic fantasy, romance, suspense, and erotica in both the male/male and male/female genres. It’s always a surprise to see what’s coming next!
I live in the suburbs of Dallas where it’s true, the only thing bigger than an over active imagination, may be women’s hair!
Usually, I try for funny. Humor is a major part of my life – I love to laugh, and it seems to be the thing I do in most situations – regardless of the situation, but jokes are a tricky deal… I don’t want to offend anyone and jokes tend to offend. So instead I’m going to tell you about Kindle
I tragically lost my sixteen year old daughter to a drunk driver. She had just been at home, it was early in the night and I heard the accident happen. I’ll never forget that moment. The sirens were immediate and something inside me just knew. I left my house, drove straight to the accident on nothing more than instinct. I got to be there when my little girl died – weirdly, I consider that a true gift from above. She didn’t have to be alone.
That time in my life was terrible. It’s everything you think it would be times about a billion. I love that kid. I loved being her mother and I loved watching her grow into this incredibly beautiful person, both inside and out. She was such a gift to me. To have it all ripped away so suddenly broke me.
Her name was Kindle. Honest to goodness – it was her name and she died a few weeks before Amazon released their brand new Kindle ereader. She had no idea it was coming out and she would have finally gotten her name on something! Try finding a ruler with the name Kindle on it.. It never happened.
Through the course of that crippling event I was lucky enough to begin to write with a dear friend in the fan fiction world of Facebook. She got me through those dark days with her unwavering support and friendship. There wasn’t a time she wasn’t there for me. Sometimes together and sometimes by myself, we built a world where Kindle lives and stands for peace, love and harmony. It’s its own kind of support group. I know without question I wouldn’t be here today without her.

Review for My One and Only by Layla Hagen

4.25 Stars for Tess & Liam’s story!!

What I liked was finally seeing Tess get her happy ending. I liked seeing her in her element of making her dreams come true with Skye and their business. I liked how she didn’t hesitate to hold her head up even when she wasn’t sure, or when she was feeling doubt. I liked the meet cute between Tess and Liam, even if it was slightly embarrassing for both. I liked Liam from the start. I liked how Tess seems to throw him out of his rhythm. I liked watching him realize she was so different and wanting to pursue her, to woo her. I liked the chemistry between this pair, because it was absolutely crazy hot!

My only frustration, if you can call it that were wanting more banter between Tess and Liam. I thought the times they had these text convos or interactions while at work, while trying and failing not to flirt were the best. I just needed more of them. I also wished that there had been a bit more of the family interaction in this book like was present in others. I just felt it was not as prevalent to me. I also felt that the drama and angst level fell a little flatter then expected. Not to say that I’m all about the angst, but I kept feeling we were building to this angsty and maybe even danger filled moment that just seemed to deflate. All in all, My One and Only was a wonderful addition to this series and solidifies that Layla Hagen continues to be a go-to author for me! So if you are looking for swoony, feel good romance this is a winner!


Tess Winchester loves her life. Her family is growing with new nieces and nephews for her to spoil. And her lingerie business is really taking off, so in order to keep up with demand she needs more capital. Though Tess had always dreamed about finding Mr. Right, and having a family of her own, dating hasn’t been easy so working extra hours is never a problem. When an opportunity of a lifetime arises, Tess jumps at the chance to present to the CEO of Harrington & Co, New York’s hottest investment firm. She’s determined to make the right impression, but when Liam accidently walks in the ladies room during a wardrobe malfunction, things get off to an… interesting start.
Tess isn’t Liam’s type, they’re too different: She’s a romantic. He’s a realist. She’s a dreamer. He’s a practical man and doesn’t believe in love. Besides, if they’re going to sign a deal, it’s best not to mix business with pleasure.
Despite their differences, Liam finds himself doing anything in his power to win her over. She’s captivating, and he won’t back down until they explore the connection that keeps him on his toes. He can’t get enough of her sassy mouth, her tenacity, and the tenderness that encounters him at every turn. Her blushes drive him crazy. Liam wants Tess.And Liam always gets what Liam wants.

When a bookworm on borrowed time meets a younger, free-spirited chicken farmer, sparks and feathers fly…
Harrison Phillip Fletcher, III isn’t supposed to be here. Not in Burlington, Vermont, not running Vino & Veritas, a quaint inclusive bookstore and wine bar, and definitely not still alive, at forty-two. Also not supposed to be here? An unexpected delivery of chickens.

Finn Barnes knows chickens. The burly organic farmer knows all about rare breed poultry, but dealing with a hot, older bookseller is an entirely different matter. City slicker types like Harrison never end up staying in Vermont for the long-term.

They should steer clear of each other. But the flare of attraction is mutual. And somehow amid book discussions and farm tours, they discover plenty in common. Now they’re stealing kisses in Finn’s barn, sneaking out like teens, and burning up the sheets.

What starts as a fling brings very real feelings for two lonely souls, but a future together seems as unlikely as chickens in a bookstore. Feathers may be flying, but learning to trust takes time neither may have. Can they take a leap of faith together before it’s too late?

Featherbed is a stand-alone novel in Sarina Bowen’s World of True North. This opposites-attract, age-gap romance features a low-angst, fluffy—and feathery—romp as a fish out of water discovers the home he never thought he’d find.

From award-winning author Garrett Leigh comes a gorgeous new romance in the True North world! Think: great food, burly men and good times. Beards are optional but encouraged.

I’m not the obvious choice to run Burlington’s coolest wine bar—quiet, brooding, clueless about tannin content, and always one wrong turn away from another downward spiral.

But no one seems to mind that I’m a wreck. Besides me. I just focus on getting through each shift until the night a beautiful stranger appears, looking as lost and damaged as I feel.

When a mutual friend calls in a favor, the sexy newcomer winds up crashing on my couch. I don’t know if it’s his melodic Cornish accent, or his ocean blue eyes, or the rock-hard body with the mysterious scars, but I get the feeling whatever happened to him runs far deeper than those wounds. 

Having Jax in my home makes my chest warm. Makes me shiver. Makes me want more. But I’ve got a pile of baggage and I don’t want to be a burden on anyone let alone a man who seems to have enough demons of his own. 

Our chemistry is off the charts. His arms feel like home. The last thing I want is to screw this up. Is it wrong to hope we can heal each other? Or will one of us die trying?

HEARTSCAPE is a heartfelt MM friends-to-lovers romance in the True North world, with a brooding bartender, a rugged outdoorsman, sweet angst and lots of Shipley cider. Triggers: contains mentions of depression, suicidal ideation and PTSD recovery.

A straight guy gives gay hookup tips to a virgin. What could go wrong? 

When I first met Whit, I couldn’t get away from him fast enough. He’s a hockey player, and I hate everything to do with the sport that broke my heart.

But I can’t help feeling sorry for the guy. He’s newly out and desperate to meet someone, but his eagerness seems to scare potential hook-ups away.

Agreeing to be his wingman should’ve been simple. Watching him flirt with other guys made things complicated.

Whit challenges me in every aspect of my life, from my hatred of hockey to the new questions I’m asking myself. Like why a straight man suddenly can’t stop thinking about kissing another guy.

I think the answer lies somewhere on Whit’s lips…

Review: Naughty Books

Hey Hey reader friends!! Today we are sharing the trailer for the Naughty Books documentary. If you’ve been a fan of this romance world of ours for awhile you will hopefully find this as fascinating as I did. I got to view it early and am sharing my review today. Check that out below. Until then, as always happy reading!

Come into the world of erotic romance and meet the authors who made millions by transforming their fantasies into fiction.

NAUGHTY BOOKS: A Documentary directed by Austen Eleanore Rachlis and starring Kelli Maine, Laurelin Paige, Kristen Proby, CJ Roberts, Aimee Garcia, Allison Tolman and Aisha Tyler is available now!

About Naughty Books

No one was prepared for the success of Fifty Shades of Grey. Originally written in 2010 as a piece of Twilight fan fiction and posted online, it eventually sold over 100 million copies, taking erotica mainstream. But women didn’t only read erotica in large numbers; they also wrote it. In the aftermath of Fifty Shades a cottage industry emerged around self-published romance novels. Once women who worked forty-hour-a-week jobs, living paycheck-to-paycheck, many of them are now New York Times bestselling authors with their own merchandise lines and die-hard fans. Naughty Books follows three such women: an Air Force vet, a telemarketer, and a hospital administrator who became millionaires in under a year by using pen names to sell erotica online. They garnered thousands of fans and secured lucrative book deals with major publishing houses by writing about good girls and bad boys finding love and having steamy sex. However, as more and more people saw writing erotic romance as a quick path to money and fame, the market became saturated with hundreds of romance novels published every month, making success difficult to maintain…

4.5 Stars

This documentary was so interesting to me. Featuring 2 authors I’ve met, CJ Roberts and Kristen Proby, and one that I have heard of but not engaged in Kelli Maine. While there are other authors and folks from our romancelandia world in it, the bulk follows these three over the course of a few years. Seeing the realities of both the successes and stresses of publishing were eye opening for sure. For me, because I have followed Kristen Proby since early 2013 at the start of her publishing breakthrough, there were times it was emotional. Overall I thoroughly enjoyed this look at the romance world. I even enjoyed spotting myself and a few friends when the filmmakers shot at the Naughty Mafia signing in 2013!

Naughty Books will be available to rent on October 13th across digital, cable, and satellite platforms.
