New Review: Beautiful Mistake by Vi Keeland

 

BeautifulMistake_FrontCover

The first time I met Caine West was in a bar.

He noticed me looking his way and mistakenly read my scowling as checking him out.

When he attempted to talk to me, I set him straight—telling him what I thought of his lying, cheating, egomaniacal ass.

You see, the gorgeous jerk had wined and dined my best friend–smooth talking her into his bed, all along failing to mention that he was married.

He deserved every bit of my tongue-lashing and more for what he’d done.

Especially when that lazy smile graced his perfect face in response to my rant.

Only it turned out, the man I’d just told off wasn’t the right guy.

Oops.  My mistake. 

Embarrassed, I slunk out without an apology.

I was never going to see the handsome stranger again anyway, right?

That’s what I thought…until I walked into class the next morning.

Well, hello Professor West, I’m your new teaching assistant.

I’ll be working under you…figuratively speaking.

Although the literal interpretation might not be such a bad thing—working under Professor West.

This was going to be interesting…

Vi Keeland has done it again! Every time I pick up one of her books I know it’s going to be super smexy with irresistible characters and yes Caine is exactly that! From the opening of this book (which is just epic) to the very end I just couldn’t put it down.

Rachel is just awesome, she’s smart and sassy and doesn’t put up with much. I loved her whole personality, especially when challenged by Caine. And Caine, oh hello hot sexy professor oh and yes Rachel is your new TA! These two have amazing chemistry together and their story really is something special! Vi Keeland throws a pretty good twist in this story and she definitely kept me guess but oh what a ride! I loved their story, their journey definitely wasn’t always easy but it’s totally worth it. This is one of those stories that grabs you by the heart, it will make you laugh, probably make you cry a bit and will surprise you! Vi Keeland delivers another wonderful story with characters that will stay with you long after the story ends! I am so in love with Caine and Rachel!

Stay BN Kobo

Can you fall in love with someone you’ve never even met?

Hailey Taylor Emery has a hunch that her favorite client at Fetch—an anonymous virtual assistant service—is actually hockey star Matt Eriksson.

Although it’s against the rules for her to check his file, she’s 95% sure she spends at least part of each day texting with her lifelong crush and catering to his every need. Still nursing a wounded heart thanks to her recent breakup, Hailey is perfectly content with some harmless online flirting… until she has to meet her client. Face to face. Cue: utter panic.

Matt Eriksson is no stranger to heartbreak. He’s still not over the destruction of his marriage, and it sucks to be the only guy on the team who knows the truth—that hockey and long-term relationships are a toxic mix. He barely sees his kids, and dealing with his ex makes him feel insane. The only person in his life who seems to understand is someone who won’t show her pretty face.

But it’s nothing that a pair of fourth row hockey seats can’t fix. Hailey can’t resist the offer. Matt can’t resist Hailey. Good thing he doesn’t have to. Fire up the kiss cam!

Warning: Contains rabid hockey fans, misunderstood dick pics, hockey players at the opera and exploding ovaries.

I absolutely love the WAGs series and cannot get enough of this group! I first fell in love with Jamie and Wes and now everyone since them and Matt and Hailey are no exception. They are fantastic and loveable and just make my heart so freaking happy!

Hailey runs an awesome virtual assistant business called Fetch with her ex-husband, and while their marriage didn’t work out, they are still pretty good friends. They offer around the clock service and give their clients the option to remain anonymous. There’s one account though, that Hailey takes care of personally, that she suspects belongs to her favorite Hockey player, Matt Erickson. Matt is recently divorced, his ex-wife is a pain and he’s spending less and less time with his twin daughters. He’s come to rely on Hailey and Fetch to help him and when he installs a camera in his home to make sure his dog walker isn’t doing something shady, he sees Hottie, um Hailey.

These two have a wonderful relationship even before their relationship! They talk online through Fetch but they have a great connection, they are fun and their personalities just match! And once they actually meet, just perfect for each other. It’s not all easy though, they both have their issues and their hang-ups, especially from their previous marriages but they make it work. They work through things and their story feels real and natural.

This is a fun, feel-good story that made me laugh and oh did it make me swoon! It’s a well-rounded story line and the characters are larger than life, I guarantee you will want to be friends with these people! This can be read as a standalone but Good Boy is just as fantastic so I recommend reading that too! I hope Sarina Bowen and Elle Kennedy never stop writing together because they are just that great!

Genre: M/M Contemporary Romance
Release Date: June 29, 2017
Blurb
Too big. Too fat.
All his life Eric Sontag has judged himself on his size,
believing love and friendship aren’t in the cards for someone like him. Tired
of being alone and scared of his doctor’s warnings, he enrolls in a nutrition
support group, determined to change his life. When a beautiful thin man sits
next to him, he can’t believe they have anything in common, but conversation
between the two soon proves first impressions aren’t always what they seem.
Drifter. Loner.
Corey DeSantis has always been the scrawny waif; he’s tired
of struggling with his art and with life. Scarred by the disappearance and
death of his drug-addicted mother, he doesn’t wish for love, believing it will
bring him nothing but pain in the end. Now his only hunger in life is his
desire to paint…until a health scare and his mentor force him to attend a
nutrition class where he meets a man who piques his interest. One drunken kiss
later, Eric is all Corey can think about. 
The same, yet different.

An unlikely friendship is born with both men wanting more
but afraid to listen to their well-guarded hearts. When Corey receives shocking
news leaving him angry and helpless, it’s Eric he turns to, to help see him
through, while a surprising career opportunity finds Eric leaning on Corey for
advice. One night of explosive passion leads to a second and soon neither man
can imagine a life without the other. Life is shaped by the challenges accepted
and roads not taken but as Corey and Eric walk the path together, they’ll
discover the most beautiful destination of all. Love.

5 Stars
WOW – I just don’t know where to start, I loved this book and I felt this book! For me, right from the start this book was something so much more than a romance. Don’t get me wrong, I love a good romance (obviously) but this story seemed to carry so much more. Both Eric and Corey are dealing with very real food issues, but from opposite directions. Eric has always been overweight and has struggled with that but with the early passing of his father and his own health scare he is ready to make real changes. Corey is underweight and doesn’t eat, it’s not so much a body image issue as a lifelong nutrition, food issue. These two meet at a nutrition group and decide to be partners in the class and they end up finding so much more in each other.
There is so much vulnerability in this story, from Corey and Eric. These two quickly find themselves opening up to each other like they never have with anyone before and it’s both helpful and shocking to them. One of the things I loved most about these two is how protective they are of each other, they may not see their own self worth but they see value in the other person. It’s not an easy journey for them, they definitely have their struggles but both men do learn to lean on each other, to look to the other for support.
There really wasn’t anything I didn’t like about this story, I adored these characters with their imperfections and their insecurities as well as their beauty. Eric is so sweet and loving and while Corey could be a bit prickly at first, Eric brings out that nurturing loving side of him. It was powerful to watch them work through their food issues and it was beautiful to see them fall in love. This was a such an emotional read got me right in the heart and I know it will stay there! This is one of those times where I don’t think I have all the words to express what this story meant to me but I think Felice Stevens has created something very special with The Shape of You, bringing Eric and Corey together!

Release Day Blitz & 5 Star Review: Regret by Christina Lee

New Favorite Alert – oh my goodness you have to meet Brin and Nick! I absolutely adored this book, it has ALL THE FEELS, just keep some tissues handy. Regret by Christina Lee is an emotional, beautiful story about love and healing that you really don’t want to miss! *SIGH*

Happy Reading!

REGRET

CHRISTINA LEE

M/M ROMANCE

RELEASE DATE: 06.26.17

Regret Cover

COVER DESIGN: KANAXA

BLURB

When Brian “Brin” Schubert’s condo floods, he takes his co-worker up on the offer to stay on his crappy futon for a while. The last thing he expects is for his friend’s roommate to be the one guy he despises the most. The same guy who stomped on his heart senior year of high school. And by the looks of the girl on his arm, the same man who’s still deep inside the closet.

Nicholas Dell never predicted that eleven years later, one of his greatest regrets would show up on his doorstep down on his luck. Nick has made some terrible mistakes—story of his life—and he’s been paying for them ever since. And if the guilt and shame aren’t enough, his first crush had to turn into one of the sexiest men he’s ever laid eyes on.

Nick and Brin have weeks to steer clear of each other. Weeks to avoid strangling each other. But when stubbornness leads to skyrocketing sexual tension, hate-sex doesn’t seem like such an awful way to work through their frustration. Except hate is a powerful emotion, especially when it’s turned inward. And in Nick’s case he’s been drowning in a sea of self-loathing for so long, he can’t see his way out.

As Brin reconnects with Nick, his perception of what really happened in their past begins to change. He’s finally ready to forgive him and take a second chance on the one guy who stirs him like no other. But Nick’s demons are complicated, heart-wrenching…demanding. So devastating, he might never allow himself true happiness—even with the one man who’s always owned his heart.

I absolutely loved this book and I can tell you right now that Brin and Nick are going on the favorites list! This book was just everything and got me right in the heart! I’m a huge fan of the enemies-to-lovers trope, I love the passion found in those relationships and Christina Lee nails it 100%!! This story really wasn’t what I expected initially but holy moly I absolutely adored it!

When Brin’s condo floods due to a burst pipe he needs a place to stay for a few weeks while they are making repairs and it’s his best friend and co-worker Elijah who offers up his place. He has a roommate Brin hasn’t met but it’s only a few weeks so it shouldn’t be an issue. But when Brin finally meets the roommate, he’s stunned to see Nick, a guy he knew from high school, the guy he tutored and messed around with and the guy who broke his heart. Nick is just as shocked to see Brin but he hopes he may be able to finally get the chance to apologize. The two try to get along, just for the few weeks Brin is staying there and as they do the walls come down and the truth comes out.

I loved Brin and Nick, absolutely freaking adored them but Nick was not at all what I expected. This poor guy is so very broken, trying to ‘make up for’ a tragic past that he doesn’t believe he deserves to be happy himself. When Brin comes back into his life, everything in his attempt at an orderly world comes crashing down all around him. My heart ached for him and what he was dealing with, the pain that never seemed to leave. Together though, these two are something so special! Brin doesn’t want to let Nick in again, he doesn’t think he can take that heartbreak twice, but the man is already in his heart. As they work through their past and their pain they learn more about each other and finally Nick reveals his pain to Brin, making him finally understand.

This wasn’t the easiest read, it absolutely shattered my heart at times (just get the tissues ready) but it was so very emotional and beautiful. Brin and Nick are such well developed, wonderful characters and their journey together is real and raw. As they come to understand each other and heal the love between these two just melted me. This was a story I felt, not just read, it’s one that went straight to my heart and I know it will stay there. Ms. Lee does an amazing job of bringing these characters to life and filling with so much emotion it is felt off the pages. I adored this book from beginning to end, it’s one of those books that as soon as I finished I wanted to start again just to experience it all one more time.

EXCERPT

“Brin, let me introduce you to my roommate,” Elijah said as I followed him through the short hallway to the living room. “This is Nick and his friend, Sarah.”

Sarah’s curly locks were nearly as blond as mine and Nick’s black hair was mostly tucked beneath a worn blue baseball cap. The two of them were cozy on the couch, Sarah sitting with her legs tucked under her and Nick with his ankle crossed over his knee. They were eating Chinese food off paper plates resting in their laps. Sarah simply waved as her mouth was full from a bite of food but Nick responded, “Hey, how you doing?” after swallowing a piece of what looked like an egg roll.

The smell of fried rice hit my nostrils and when my stomach rumbled in response, I realized just how famished I was. I was dying to dive right into the second brown bag resting on the coffee table that more than likely contained my food, but I didn’t want to be rude.

When Nick leaned forward with an outstretched hand, for some reason I zeroed right in on the neatly groomed scruff on his chin. When he tilted his face to look directly into my eyes, I froze, our fingers interlocked. A startled gasp sprang from my lips, and Nick’s eyebrows slammed together in confusion right before they lifted straight to his hairline.

The same cherry-colored lips, with a center dimple drilled into his chin. Those sad, amber-colored eyes that shuttered out the world.

Holy fuck. Elijah’s roommate was Nicholas Dell.

The same Nicholas Dell from Jefferson High who practically ruined me for other guys.

The same Devil’s third baseman that begged his math tutor to suck his cock in the locker room after practice.

And given the female nestled up beside him, it was the same Nicholas Dell who was still deep in the closet.

New Release & Review: Small Town Scandal (Wingman #5) by Daisy Prescott

 

 Happy release day Daisy Prescott!! Oh my heavens guys this book stole my heart! No really. Carter Kelso was just so stinkin amazing from start to finish. Daisy never fails to make me love her writing more and more, and this time I remembered my love of goats too! Oh and showing us that sometimes a scandalous reputation is more talk than reality. So yeah I loved Carter and Ashley. I hope you will too! Happy reading!

Title: Small Town Scandal
Series: Wingmen #5 (Standalone)
Author: Daisy Prescott
Genre: Second Chance Romance
Release Date: June 27, 2017
Blurb
Another wingmen meets his match and this time it’s
scandalous.
Carter Kelso is a man with a plan. And goats.
Ashley Kingston is a woman with a reputation.
Can he earn back her love before their past catches up with
them and destroys everything?
On the island, my last name is synonymous with scandal. With
a notorious father and a famous brother, I’ve been on the sidelines of our
small town’s gossip circle for years. Nothing to see here. Just a man and his
goats, happily going through life. Not a care in the world. Too bad it’s all
lies.
I’m tired of trying not to be in love with Ashley Kingston,
our very own island jezebel. Some people think she’s a slut. They think they
know her. They’re wrong. Screw them.

Reputations can be deceiving. I should know.

Small Town Scandal is a second chance romance standalone
novel and the fifth book in the Wingmen series. You do not have to read the
other novels first.
amber review       5 Stars
Daisy, Daisy, Daisy. Seriously this story just grabbed me where I feel! It took me 2 solid days after I finished to put my thoughts together because I loved it so much. The Modern Love Stories and Wingman series’ never fail to make me laugh, sigh, fan myself and sometimes even cry. Usually a rom com just makes me happy and gives me feels with lots of warm fuzzies, but ‘A Daisy Prescott story’ is always gonna make me feel so many more things!
Told from Carter Kelso’s pov, the weaving of his and Ashley’s history was perfection! Having read this series I knew that there was history there, but the depth of it just made me root for them as a couple. Ashley has been hurt by so many people and has so many guards up. While Carter has hid behind his playboy ways and his ‘roll with the waves attitude’; we find there is so much insecurity on his part. But also that he’s always put others, especially his family ahead of his own dreams.
So what all did I love about Small Town Scandal? I loved how Daisy used all the things Ashley had been told or that she had said about herself as chapter headers. I loved how Carter was determined to finally get his girl and own his feelings for her. I loved the fierceness as well as the vulnerability that Ashley showed, all the while proving to Carter that he was more than he thought about himself. Gah!! These two may have taken forever for their story to be told but it was oh so worth the wait!!!

Strong Enough

by Melanie Harlow & David Romanov

Genre: Contemporary MM Romance

Publication Date: June 19, 2017

I wasn’t looking for Derek Wolfe.

I wasn’t looking for anybody. All I wanted was to start a new life in America. But when I found myself stranded here with no place to go, he came to my rescue, offering me a place to stay.

He’s smart, successful, and sexy as hell—I can barely sleep knowing he’s right down the hall. And when the chemistry between us explodes one night with fierce, fiery passion, it’s hard to deny there’s something real between us.

But he does.

He says he was drunk. He says it was a one-time thing. He says he’s not into guys and what we did meant nothing.

He’s lying. Because it happened again, and again, and again. And it’s better every time.

I know we could be good together, and I want the chance to try, but I’m done hiding. If he’s not strong enough to admit the truth, I’ll have to be strong enough to walk away.

5 Stars

Strong Enough was one of those books I fell in love with right from the start and just could not put down! Derek and Maxim are fantastic characters and their story is raw and full of emotion.

Derek had a vision for how his life should be – husband and father with everything in it’s place, but that’s not his reality. He wants to be happy and is struggling to find that happiness. Maxim is excited to finally be moving from Russia to America, but it’s a rough start for him, left stranded at the airport then his bag gets stolen. Through the kindness of a bartender he meets, he ends up staying with Derek and that’s how their journey together begins.

This story is amazing and will go straight to your heart! I felt attached to these two right from the beginning, there is a connection between them that you can just feel. Oh man, does Derek struggle though, and it made my heart hurt for him and for Maxim as well. There’s passion and love and so much self discovery in this book. This is definitely one of those books you ‘feel’ as you go and it is worth every single feel! Derek and Maxim show how beautiful love is and what it’s like to finally find your soulmate!

Melanie Harlow and David Romanov have created wonderful characters and a beautiful story that will definitely stay in my heart! Strong Enough is a definite must read!

Excerpt:

Figuring I’d had enough booze to blunt his effect on me, I rolled up the sleeves of my black button-down shirt and moved next to him. “I’ll help you.”

“Okay.”

I caught him trying to not to look at my wrists and forearms, and it made me smile. How does it feel to want someone and have to hide it? “You wash, I’ll dry?”

“Sounds good.”

We worked in silence, shoulder to shoulder, and I found myself increasingly—and disturbingly—pleased at the thought of him being attracted to me and being forced to conceal it. It was fucking horrible of me to take pleasure in his discomfort, but I liked being secretly wanted. Being illicitly desired. Being the object of his covert glances and maybe even his darkest, dirtiest thoughts. I let our arms touch more than necessary, as thrilled by the physical contact as I was by the thought of what it might be doing to him.

For there is no man who does not sin.

My dick started to get hard, clearly unbothered by the whiskey that was breaking down my inhibitions, pushing past all my defenses, and letting my imagination run wild.

What’s in that gorgeous head of yours, Maxim? What’s behind those cobalt eyes? What would you do to me, if I let you? What would you let me do to you?

“Carolyn is so nice,” he said, handing me the last serving dish left to be dried.

What? He was thinking about Carolyn right now? He wasn’t supposed to be thinking about Carolyn—I was, goddammit!

But I wasn’t. “Yeah.”

He turned off the water. Rested his wet hands on the edge of the sink. “I didn’t realize you had a girlfriend.”

And I heard it in his voice—the slightest edge of jealousy, so faint I might never have noticed it had I not been so hyperaware of everything about him right now. I fucking loved it.

“She’s not my girlfriend.”

“Oh.” Now there was confusion. “I guess I misunderstood.”

“She wants to be my girlfriend.”

Silence.

Of course there was silence. Maxim would never ask what the problem was. But I wanted to tell him. I wanted him to know. I wanted to share the impossible longing I felt with one person who might understand it.

“The problem is me.”

He was completely still. Before I could stop myself, I covered his right hand with my left. “Sometimes I don’t know what I want.”

He yanked his hand from beneath mine and we faced each other.

For the first time tonight, I looked him right in the eye. Nothing around us existed for me anymore. I heard only his breath. Smelled only his skin. Saw only his guarded expression.

I had to have him.

Sloan O’Malley just left her entire world behind—her family, her wealth, and even her real name. For the first time in her life, she’s free. She can live the “normal” life she’s always wanted. A life without fear. But there’s nothing safe about her intensely sexy next-door neighbor.

Still, he’s never been able to walk away from the forbidden, and Sloan—who is every inch of pure, mouthwatering temptation—has forbidden written all over her. Only after it’s way too late does he discover the real danger: claiming Sloan as his puts a target on her back.

amber review   5 Stars

Another addictive addition to the O’Malley series!! Oh my for all things Jude MacNamarra!! Sloan O’Malley has definitely met her match when she ends up as his neighbor. But as always, the connections are not far from danger and everything Sloan is trying to escape from seems to be on her tail.
Katee Robert does a masterful job crafting this series with all the twists and turns that never cease to keep me on the edge of my seat! This is a must read series for me with family drama, suspense, mafia and so much steamy goodness to boot! Can’t wait to see what happens next!!

My Best Friend’s Ex, an all new sexy, laugh out loud romantic comedy from Meghan Quinn is available now!

MyBestFriendsEx

My Best Friend’s Ex by Meghan Quinn
Publication Date: June 1st, 2017

Genre: Contemporary Romance

Synopsis

When I found an eviction notice taped on my apartment door, I had two options: find a comfortable cardboard box to call home, or move in with Tucker Jameson.

Seeing that cardboard makes me feel itchy, I chose the latter. Which shouldn’t be that big of a deal since Tucker is one of my good friends. And because he’s still pining after his ex-girlfriend and I’m trying to finish my nursing degree, there is nothing to worry about in the romance department, making my last semester an easy one to conquer.

Boy, was I wrong.

Rules are set, dinners are made, conversations are had, and a shirtless, swoony roommate walks around in nothing but a pair of black briefs, ruining me for every other man.

Before I know it, I turn into a panting, lust-filled woman begging for Tucker to kiss me, touch me, and show me exactly what is hiding under those briefs.

But with great orgasms, comes great consequences.

Tucker might be my friend and roommate but he’s also my best friend’s ex-boyfriend, making him completely off-limits. At least that’s what my brain is telling me, my heart is speaking an entirely different language.

5 Stars

I loved this book – so hard and holy moly you have to meet Tucker – you will fall head over freaking heels in love with him, I sure did! I went in to this book expecting one kind of story, something funny and sexy but I got so much MORE! This book is the perfect example of blending fantastic wit and humor with serious feels and emotion. My heart is still all schmoopy!

Emma is a nursing student, with only a semester left to graduate but one day is called home by her roommate to discover that they are being evicted. Her roommate has found a place to stay so she’s got to find a place for herself and while out having drinks one night she runs into a blast from the past, Tucker Jameson and he offers her a room at his house. These two used to be great friends but have grown apart since he also happens to be her best friend Sadie’s ex boyfriend. But, with no place else to go Emma and Tucker become roommates and so much more!

There is a lot more heart and emotion to this story than I expected and it makes it so very wonderful. Tucker and Emma are so wonderful and natural together, it’s easy to just feel their friendship. They are hilarious together and just so right, they are flirty and affectionate and it just seems natural for them to take it to the next step. Both seem to quickly develop real feelings for each other, but there are still questions about whether Tucker has really moved on from his broken relationship with Sadie. There’s more to his pain that just a break up and Emma and Tucker both have to figure out if what they have is strong enough to overcome that pain.

Seriously I adored this book, every page, every word! Emma and Tucker made me fall helplessly in love with them, laughing at their fun house rules and epically swooning. And it’s not just Emma and Tucker, they come with a group of hilariously wonderful friends that just add to this story. These are people I would definitely want to be friends with. Meghan Quinn has created a wonderful, fun and touching story about finding real love and figuring out how to keep that love! (And yes, awesome mugs definitely help!) I definitely recommend this book, it’s a must read!

Excerpt:

“Morning,” Tucker’s deep voice rattles off the cabinets. It’s his morning voice, deeper, throatier—if that makes sense—and I hate to admit it, because he’s just my friend, but sexier.

Once my pupils adjust to the light, I take Tucker in. He’s standing in front of the stove, rubber spatula in hand, wearing a white long-sleeve Henley shirt, the top two buttons undone, a pair of worn jeans with a few paint stains on them, and tan work boots. Sweet Jesus, he makes construction look good. Strap a tool belt around his waist and stick him in front of a camera for the benefit of all womankind.

“Morning,” I say in reply, using the counter to help hold up my tired body. “You’re up early. What time do you have to go into work?”

“Around seven thirty. I like to get an early start before the boys come in.” He looks me up and down, a small smile at the corner of his lips. “You look good.” He motions around his head with his hand. “I really like what you did with your hair.”

I turn toward the window in the kitchen and check out my reflection. Sure enough, my long brown hair looks like a lion’s mane poofed out and framing my face with an abundance of volume. Beautiful.

There is no use in taming it, so I leave my hair as is and turn back toward Tucker. “Not many people can get this kind of height while sleeping.” I pretend to fluff my hair.

“Impressive.” He chuckles and then points to the coffee maker with the spatula. “Coffee is done, mugs are above in the cabinet. Grab me a cup, will ya? Eggs will be done shortly, bacon is warming in the oven.”

I do as directed, thinking it’s kind of cute how he’s including me in on his little morning breakfast. “I didn’t even know you had eggs. I was expecting to hit up Dunkin’ Donuts or Tim Horton’s this morning.”

He turns off the stove and reaches for two plates from the dish rack. “I went to Walmart this morning. Picked up a few things.”

“This morning?” I pour two cups of coffee and turn toward him. “What time did you wake up?”

“Four thirty,” he answers casually. “Got a quick run in, did some weights, took a shower and then went to Walmart.” He fills our plates with bacon and eggs and then nods toward the dining room, plates and silverware in hand. “I have a surprise.”

I follow him to the dining room where he flips on the light and reveals a card table fold-out dining set.

“You got a table.” I chuckle, loving that it’s a fold-out card table with matching chairs. Anything is better than the floor.

“And placemats,” he adds, as he lifts two plastic placemats from one of the chairs. “The options were bleak so I went with dinosaurs for me and Trolls for you. Given the look of your morning hair, Trolls was the right choice.” Clever bastard. He sets them on the table and then puts our plates on top of them.

God, it’s too freaking cute. Chuckling, I take a seat and hand him his coffee. “Look at you getting all domestic. I never thought you would be a placemat kind of man, I stand corrected.”

He rests a napkin on his legs, which are spread drastically, almost the length of the table and leans over to fork some eggs into his mouth. “Didn’t want our food to damage the plastic of this high-class table.” I love the humor in his voice, it reminds me of all the good times we had, before the end of his relationship with Sadie.

“Smart man, you want this table to last.”

“Of course, you don’t see fine furniture like this in houses anymore. Everything has to be so sturdy. What ever happened to rickety furniture and living through a meal with the threat of your food possibly kissing the floor at any point in time?”

“The horror,” I joke.

He looks up at me. Some of his hair is still wet from his shower. Pointing his fork at me he says, “Are you ready to be schooled?”

“Schooled on what?” I take a bite of bacon and my stomach jumps in excitement for finally rewarding it for waking up early. All right, I will admit it, getting out of bed was a smart idea.

“It’s Monday, babe. DJ Hot Cock has his song picked and ready to show you what real music is.”

“When was my music taste ever questioned? I like good music.”

“We’ll see.” He reaches into his pocket and pulls out his phone. I watch as he flips through it until he lands on the song he wants to introduce me to. He presses play and sets his phone on the table. The light pickings of a guitar fill the small dining room. I don’t recognize the song, but I like the sound of it so far.

Just as I’m settling in to the sweet pickings of a guitar, the distinct voice of Zac Brown chimes in. I’ve known Tucker for loving EMO growing up, so his choice in a country song is very surprising to me, but when I look up at him, pure hometown country boy sitting across from me, it makes perfect sense.

And then the lyrics hit me. My Old Man. Zac sings about his father, hoping he’s proud of the man he’s become. I’m transported back to a dreary day in Whitney Point, where we grew up, when Sadie called me one Saturday morning. I was getting ready for the day. We were in middle school. Tucker’s dad was killed by a head-on collision, the dad Tucker just reconnected with, the dad Tucker had plans on moving in with to get away from his neglectful mom. Those next few days—and weeks—were a whirlwind of sorrow. Attending his funeral, my first ever funeral, seeing the look of devastation on Tucker’s face, wondering what he might be feeling, trying to channel his hurt, it was so much to take on as a teenager.

Glancing up, I take in Tucker’s expression. He’s lost in the music, in the words, just like me. When the song ends, I lean over and place my hand on his, our eyes meet and there is an unspoken understanding between us. I don’t have to say anything about his dad, about the tragedy we went through so many years ago together as friends. It’s all said between this silent exchange.

About the Author:

A BLONDE AT HEART

Born in New York and raised in Southern California, Meghan has grown into a sassy, peanut butter eating, blonde haired swearing, animal hoarding lady. She is known to bust out and dance if “It’s Raining Men” starts beating through the air and heaven forbid you get a margarita in her, protect your legs because they may be humped.

Once she started commuting for an hour and twenty minutes every day to work for three years, she began to have conversations play in her head, real life, deep male voices and dainty lady coos kind of conversations. Perturbed and confused, she decided to either see a therapist about the hot and steamy voices running through her head or start writing them down. She decided to go with the cheaper option and started writing… enter her first novel, Caught Looking.

Now you can find the spicy, most definitely on the border of lunacy, kind of crazy lady residing in Colorado with the love of her life and her five, furry four legged children, hiking a trail or hiding behind shelves at grocery stores, wondering what kind of lube the nervous stranger will bring home to his wife. Oh and she loves a good boob squeeze!

Release Blitz: Twenty-Two (Assassins #11.5) by Toni Aleo

 

 Happy release day Toni Aleo!! I loved Lucas and Fallon before, but this novella? Holy moly I love them even more! Toni brought out all the feels with the Brooks Family. Get this one if y’all love this series!! Check out my review and these awesome teasers. Happy reading! Laters ~ Amber

 

 

When Lucas Brooks was traded to the Nashville Assassins over a decade ago, he was a brash, brawling hothead without an anchor.

Well, four kids and a smokin’ hot wife will weigh you down real fast, but Lucas wouldn’t change a minute of his happily ever after.

During an epic, end-of-season quest for the Cup, changes appear on the horizon, and suddenly, there’s a plot twist in Lucas’s fairy tale.
Amber’s 5 Star Review
Oh. My. Heart!! Thank you Toni Aleo for not only creating Lucas and Fallon, but giving us this visit to their life. I loved this pair and their boy Aiden when I first read Trying to Score (Assassins #2). We got more of them in Empty Net with Audrey and Tate. But this visit to everything Brooks Family was simply perfection. Laughter, love and so much heart encompass Twenty-Two. Grab some tissues because if you love these folks there’s gonna be tears! But I wouldn’t change a thing!

Blurb:

There will be a battle, and you will need to protect your heart.

Kjell of Jeru had always known who he was. He’d never envied his brother or wanted to be king. He was the bastard son of the late King Zoltev and a servant girl, and the ignominy of his birth had never bothered him.

But there is more to a man than his parentage. More to a man than his blade, his size, or his skills, and all that Kjell once knew has shifted and changed. He is no longer simply Kjell of Jeru, a warrior defending the crown. Now he is a healer, one of the Gifted, and a man completely at odds with his power.

Called upon to rid the country of the last vestiges of the Volgar, Kjell stumbles upon a woman who has troubling glimpses of the future and no memory of the past. Armed with his unwanted gift and haunted by regret, Kjell becomes a reluctant savior, beset by old enemies and new expectations. With the woman by his side, Kjell embarks upon a journey where the greatest test may be finding the man she believes him to be.

I was so excited to see a second The Bird and The Sword Chronicles book and even more so when I saw it was going to be Kjell’s story and Amy Harmon did not disappoint! This book, just like the first one, is an experience, it will sweep off your feel and transport you to a different world. The characters are captivating and the story is all consuming!

I fell so freaking hard for Kjell – oh my goodness! He was definitely an intriguing character in The Bird and the Sword, but now as the main focus, I just loved him so much! He is just everything! His love and devotion, despite his rough exterior just made my heart melt. He’s easily one of my favorite characters from Amy Harmon. Sasha is also her own form of amazing, she’s pure and real even in a world she doesn’t remember, trying to sort out the future.

I loved this journey and don’t want to spoil it for any reader, but I can guarantee you will be transported into this world, living with these characters in every moment. I’m not one to typically read fantasy but I love this series. I didn’t know if Amy Harmon could do better than The Bird and The Sword but I’m going to say she did with Kjell and Sasha’s journey.  I loved the way their story started and I adored the way it all came together – a beautiful ending! I cannot wait to go back to Jeru!
