This is going to be Ryan Justice’s year. It’s his last year of college and his last year as a hockey player for the Bellevue Bullies. He’s making all the plays in preparation for achieving his dream of being drafted into the NHL.

This is Sofia Castilleja’s beginning. She is starting her college career as a star member of Bellevue’s brand-new gymnastics team. She’s going to tumble her way to success, first in school and then by realizing her dream of opening her own gym.

Ryan and Sofia didn’t see each other coming, but once they meet, they can’t look away. Their dreams are destined to take them in opposite directions. But it doesn’t take them long to realize that waking up to reality together may be better than dreaming alone.

 

About the Author:

My name is Toni Aleo and I’m a total dork.
I am a wife, mother of two and a bulldog, and also a hopeless romantic.
I am the biggest Shea Weber fan ever, and can be found during hockey season with my nose pressed against the Bridgestone Arena’s glass, watching my Nashville Predators play!
When my nose isn’t pressed against the glass, I enjoy going to my husband and son’s hockey games, my daughter’s dance competition, hanging with my best friends, taking pictures, scrapbooking, and reading the latest romance novel.
I have a slight Disney and Harry Potter obsession, I love things that sparkle, I love the color pink, I might have been a Disney Princess in a past life… probably Belle.
… and did I mention I love hockey?

New Release & Review: Screwed by Kelly Jamieson

Happy release to Kelly Jamieson!!! I kinda adored Cash and Callie in this new book from Kelly. I’ve read her former SEALS and her hockey players, but Cash is just a good ‘ol Southern boy. This book was totally a good time read, fun and relatable. Great poolside or beach read for sure!! Happy reading! ~ Amber
Screwed by Kelly Jamieson is AVAILABLE NOW!
“A sizzling forbidden romance.” – #1 NYT bestselling author Lauren Blakely

Cash Hale has been in love with his best friend’s wife forever. Now Callie and Beau are divorced, but she’s still way off-limits. Dating her would betray his friendship with Beau. And Cash is nothing if not loyal.

Callie Sutherland is starting over. The end of her marriage was just one more way she failed to live up to her wealthy family’s expectations, so from now on she’s not even going to try. It’s time to live her life the way she wants. And she wants Cash.

Cash and Beau aren’t just friends, they’re business partners, and the drop in the price of oil has hurt their business. They need to win the bid for Sutherland Industries’ next big project—but it may get messy since Callie’s family owns the business. Not only would Cash risk his friendship with Beau to be with her, he’d be risking the company they worked so hard to create.

But this new Callie isn’t taking no for an answer.

He’s so screwed…

amber review  4 Stars

Cash and Callie are friends. Cash has always wanted to be so much more, but unfortunately when your best friend saw (and married) her first you are kinda screwed. This book really made me feel so much. Callie is coming into her own; finally saying screw it to her cheating ex-husband, standing on her own with the expectations of her parents (her mother – omg I kinda couldn’t stand her). In the midst of all these things is Cash, ever present, ever steady and Callie is finally realizing that their connection is electric. Watching these two give in, even if it starts by hiding, was fun and hot. But it was also painful to see two people who are obviously good for each other and with each other, allow others to dictate their happiness. I like Kelly’s writing and her ability to create relatable characters.

New Release & Review: Speakeasy (True North #5) by Sarina Bowen

Happy release to Sarina Bowen! I’m so excited to share with y’all about this book, and I’m really looking forward to reading the rest of this series!! The True North is set in Sarina’s Vermont and evokes all the things that I know to be true of that area. This book surprised me in ways as Alec and May built a friendship and more, all the while dealing with their own struggles. I really loved this couple, and now I really want to know all the backstories of their friends! Happy reading! ~ Amber

 

SpeakeasyWeb 

Speakeasy (True North #6)

Sometimes you fall for Mr. Right. And sometimes for Mr. Right Now…

May
Did you hear the one about the girl who walks into a bar and catches her live-in lover kissing someone else? No? You’re the only one in town who missed it.

Luckily Alec is there to wrap me up in strong arms and carry me out the door before things get too ugly. And that’s not all Alec is good at. Our unexpected chemistry makes him the perfect rebound guy.

Alec
I should know better than to hook up with my rival’s little sister, but the fiery look in May’s eyes really turns my crank. She needs cheering up, and I’m just the guy for the job.

It’s not like I’ll fall in love. Not even after a string of scorching hot trysts, and the realization that we’re good at the same things: wild nights and familial disappointment. I don’t do love, never have, never will. So this is the perfect arrangement, for both of us.

Nobody would approve, but nobody has to know…

amber review  4.5 Stars

What a great story by Sarina Bowen!! I’ve been wanting to read this True North series for a while and somehow Speakeasy is my first, even though I have most of the rest in my library. Standalone, interconnected series are definitely a favorite of mine for just this reason! Alec and May were fantastic together! Both are seen as a bit of a mess by their families. Both have some insecurities. What’s starts as friendly support turns to hot hookups, but when feelings start happening things get good and complicated. I loved the flow of this story. Ms. Bowen is always so good at developing her characters, and at weaving humor with strong emotions. Once again I’m left feeling happy and wanting to visit the places and the characters.

New Release & Review: I Flipping Love You by Helena Hunting

This will be the first of several posts today for new books out this week that I was lucky enough to read and review lately. I have become a big fan of Helena Hunting and her ability to create characters that connect in ways that are both emotional and hilarious! Her brand of rom com is my jam, and if you aren’t reading her now is a great time to start! Happy reading! ~ Amber

 

IFLYCover

From New York Times bestselling author Helena Hunting comes I Flipping Love You, a love story about flipping houses, taking risks, and landing that special someone who’s move-in ready.

Rian Sutter doesn’t usually get hit on in the grocery store, but when she notices a sexy man in a suit checking her out, she thinks maybe it’s her lucky day. Either that or the suit has a thing for sweaty, yoga-pant wearing women with excellent price matching skills.

Turns out it’s neither.

Pierce Whitfield can’t believe his luck when he’s able to track down the woman who scratched up the paint job on his car at the scene of the crime. But when he confronts the hit and run hottie, he discovers there’s not just one, but two of them, and he’s been throwing accusations at the wrong twin.

As repair costs are negotiated, and the chemistry between them flares, Rian and Pierce find out they have more than mutual attraction in common. They’re both vying for the same pieces of prime real estate in The Hamptons and neither one plans to give up without a fight.

Can these passionate rivals turn up the heat on their budding romance—without burning down the house?

amber review   5 Stars

Another winner for me from Helena Hunting!! I Flipping Love You checked all the boxes for me. Great characters, great chemistry, great banter and all the feels. Rian and Pierce, from their first meeting to the end had me hooked. I laughed, cried and swooned all through this book! Playing off characters from Hooking Up, so we get to see Amalie and Lex too. I laughed a lot reading this one because there were too many encounters that you couldn’t help but imagine happening. I loved the chemistry and banter between this pair. Their sexy times were smokin and at times funny at the same time. I loved the gnomes. I loved that Pierce fought for Rian, even when Rian was being insecure and letting her fears get the better of her. The epilogue was pretty perfect for me too.

Chase Hansen. Broke. College drop out. Male stripper.

My life wasn’t at all what I imagined it would be. I should have been finishing up college, interning with a well-respected business, partying with my friends. But instead, I was raising my seventeen year old brother, struggling to make ends meet. Love wasn’t even on my radar. Besides, what did I have to offer? A few crumpled singles pulled from my G-string? Defeated and exhausted, I knew I had zero chance of finding someone to love me just as I am.

Noah Carpenter. Angry. Betrayed. Doctor.

Just when I thought my life was going exactly as it should, everything turned upside down. With my final rotation in medical school complete, I finally achieved my lifelong dream of becoming a doctor. What I never expected was to catch the man of my dreams in our bed with the man of his. Beyond infuriated, I struggled to piece together the remnants of my life. Just when I’d decided to give up on love altogether, I found a man who loved me just as I am.

amber review 5 Stars

As I Am is simply Melissa Collins at her best! I thoroughly enjoyed Chase and Noah in her short story, Stripped Bare (from the Drunk in Love anthology); but it left me wanting more. Thankfully those desires were answered here! This beautiful story of finding love amongst the broken pieces of life. Chase and Noah reconnect in an unexpected way, but once it happens they both know that their connection can’t be ignored despite their differences. It was simply all I’d hoped for and more. So much passion and desire, but also so many emotions and angst as they both come to terms with the things that haunt them from their pasts.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR

Melissa Collins has always been a book worm. Studying Literature in college ensured that her nose was always stuck in a book. She followed her passion for reading to the most logical career choice: English teacher. Her hope was to share her passion for reading and the escapism of books to her students. Having spent more than a decade in front of a classroom, she can easily say that it’s been a dream.
Her passion for writing didn’t start until more recently. When she was home on maternity leave in early 2012, she read her first romance novel and her head filled with the passion, angst and laughter of the characters who she read about it. It wasn’t long before characters of her own took shape in her mind. Their lives took over Melissa’s brain and The Love Series was born.

Blurb:

McKenzie Bishop is fresh out of the Army after getting wounded overseas. Estranged from his family, he decides to attend college as far away from home as possible; ending up at Buchanan State University, in Crescent Falls, Pennsylvania. He doesn’t know a soul there; so, it’s the perfect place to begin the next chapter in his life.

After two weeks of immense boredom, loneliness, and his own form of alcohol therapy, he decides to pledge a fraternity, something he always wanted to do prior to joining the Army. Enter, Delta Iota Kappa, the animal house of BSU.

Bishop is the oldest one in his pledge class and wary about what the pledging process will entail, but like everything else in his life prior, he fully commits. Everything goes smoothly until the night he’s arrested at a fraternity party.

Faced with jail time or a Veterans Affairs substance abuse program, Bishop chooses the latter, and to his surprise, falls head over heels for his much older female counselor. He finds this elusive woman intriguing and suddenly, his sessions become about much more than learning how to overcome his addiction to alcohol.

Happy reading! ~ Amber
Title: My Unexpected Love
Series: The Beaumont Series: Next Generation #2
Author: Heidi McLaughlin
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: April 12, 2018
Cover Design: Sarah Hansen @ Okay Creations
Ben Miller met the love of his life the day he crossed paths with Elle James in their high school cafeteria. New to Beaumont, he took a chance when he approached her. Their first encounter was everything his mother ever read to him about fairy tales. He saw the girl who would be his forever.

From the moment Elle James met Ben Miller they’ve been best friends. Everything they did, they did it together, from late night study sessions, family vacations, throwing bottles off the water tower, going to prom and finally moving to California for college.

However, after the almost tragic accident where she nearly lost her twin sister, Elle’s life hasn’t been the same, and neither has her relationship with Ben.

One fateful decision changes the scope of Ben and Elle’s relationship. For one, it means a new beginning. For the other, it means change.

amber review

5 Stars

Prepare for the emotional ride that was Ben and Elle. Heidi McLaughlin returns with the Beaumont Next Generation series in My Unexpected Love.

These characters drew me in, frustrated me and made me love them all at once!

Elle is so messed up after her sisters near death that she’s drowning in her own pain. Everyone around her sees it but doesn’t know what to do, including her best friend. Ben is so good, so kind and so in love with Elle. This pair I swear, I wanted to strangle them both, all the while rooting for them to find their way to the other.

So many angst filled moments. So many sighs and cries and tears. The scenes with Elle and her siblings, with Elle and her parents – all brought me both tears and so much love for these people. Harrison and Kaitlyn are the best kind of parents! I loved them all the more! 💜

Heidi did such a fantastic job of portraying Elle’s journey to acceptance. To realize that while life is fragile, you can’t hide away and numb your feelings. To realize that sometimes love is unexpected, but sometimes it’s been with you all along if you just look.

Heidi is a New York Times and USA Today Bestselling author.
Originally from the Pacific Northwest, she now lives in picturesque Vermont, with her husband and two daughters. Also renting space in their home is an over-hyper Beagle/Jack Russell, Buttercup and a Highland West/Mini Schnauzer, JiLL and her brother, Racicot.

When she’s isn’t writing one of the many stories planned for release, you’ll find her sitting court-side during either daughter’s basketball games.

Heidi’s first novel, Forever My Girl, will be in theaters on October 27, 2017, starring Alex Roe and Jessica Rothe.
