Synopsis

I once met a man on a cold Halloween night. He dressed as a superhero, and I dressed in red. For one night, I was his break from reality, and he was the temporary fix for my broken heart.

Two years later, I was given the opportunity of a lifetime to become a senior editor at one of the biggest magazine companies in the world. The only catch? Nail an exclusive interview with New York’s finest bachelor: Connor Roe.

To the rest of the world he was becoming one of the wealthiest men in New York City. To me, he was simply my once upon a time superhero.

Happy Book Birthday!

Eye Candy (Fighting for Love Book 3) by Jiffy Kate is now available!

Eye Candy, an all-new opposites attract small-town romance from Jiffy Kate, is LIVE EARLY on AppleBooks, Nook, Kobo, and GooglePlay!

Synopsis

Vali Erickson is the classic middle child—misunderstood, underestimated, and overlooked. He’s fine with it. Really. The overlooked part is actually serving him well during this phase of life.

He’s in Green Valley in an effort to fly under the radar and regroup after a life-altering blow to his heart and ego. The last thing he’s looking for is a woman to warm his bed until one throws him to the mat and rocks his world.

Margaret O’Neal is an only child who has led a sheltered life. She’s used to being a wallflower. Her ability to blend into the background is what allows her to maintain her anonymity as a gossip columnist for the Green Valley Ledger.

Since the Ericksons moved to town, she’s never felt more inspired, especially with the newest addition. Vali Erickson is the definition of eye candy—devastatingly handsome with muscles for days—giving her plenty to report about.

The more Maggie observes, the more she finds herself wanting things she’s only read about in romance novels.

Admiring Vali from afar is good enough for her until their paths cross and she finds herself trying to stay afloat in uncharted territory—no labels, no promises, and WAY out of her comfort zone.

Will this arrangement be what finally breaks her out of her shell, or will her heart be a casualty of the Viking Invasion?

‘Eye Candy’ is a full-length contemporary romance, and can be read as a standalone. Book #3 in the Fighting For Love series, Green Valley Chronicles, Penny Reid Book Universe.

5- I didn’t see her coming, I wasn’t expecting to find her.
But, Dear God, I’m glad I did – Stars!” – Vali Erickson

“Greeting, Good People of Green Valley.” – Trixie and Tess, Green Valley Ledger

Margaret O’Neal has a secret.  She’s the voice behind “The Green Valley Ledgers” gossip and advice column.  Nobody knows her secret but two people.  Her editor, Sarah, and her pen pal and confidant, Everly.
Margaret would also say that she suffers from a “lack of social interaction” because her parents were older when they had her.
She was homeschooled. 
She went to college through online courses. 
She works and has always worked for her parents – O’Neil Feed and Fodder Store, and she still lives at home with her parents.
Writing her weekly column for the “Green Valley Ledger” allows her to transform from Maggie O’Neal, feed store employee, to Maggie O’Neal, a writer, and columnist.
It’s through Maggie’s column that she’s able to tell the good people of Green Valley about the <i>”Viking Invasion”</i>, and that there’s a new addition to Viking MMA -Vali Erickson.

Vali Erickson’s reason for coming to Green Valley is to get away.
He was betrayed in the most brutal of ways.
He’s hurt, heartbroken, and has come to his brother’s MMA gym to get away, lick his wounds, ground himself, and learn to move on.

As fate would have it, Maggie and Vali end up getting to know one another. 
They agree to have a relationship “with no labels” because Vali doesn’t know how long he’ll be staying in Green Valley, and he wants to be upfront with Maggie that his move there was never meant to be permanent.
Their chemistry is off the charts.
Vali is Maggie’s everything firsts. 
First relationship.
First time travelling outside of Green Valley. 
First Love.

This is a wonderful story of Vali learning to trust and love, and Maggie learning to get off the sidelines of life and follow her dreams. 
When she does, she soars.


I just want to say that this is my MOST favourite story yet in the series!
I totally fell for Vali and Maggie.
Vali Erickson if f#@*ing Perfect, and I LOVED, LOVED Margaret (Maggie, Mags) O’Neil’s character!

Amazing read and a wonderful addition to the “Fighting for Love” series!

Librarian Maxine Peters lives her life behind the scenes. By day, she’s a buttoned-up cataloguing whiz in the basement of the Green Valley Public Library. By night, she’s secretly dominating in an online role playing game as the legendary Maximus_Damage. Her in-game persona has the skills to back up the hype.

Jonathan quickly learns fighting his own demons will take more than one elite gamer. And Maxine, who is busy rebooting her life in Green Valley, might not be up to the task.

Dewey Belong Together’ is a full-length contemporary romance and can be read as a standalone. Book #7 in the Green Valley Library series, Green Valley Chronicles, Penny Reid Book Universe.

Dewey Belong Together by Ann Whynot

My rating: 4 of 5 stars


Publication Date: February 18, 2021

“4- Games bring people together, and those people can become your friends, and your friends can become your chosen family.” Stars!
-Maximus_Damage


This was a good enemy-to-lovers story by debut author Ann Whynot, but what was most inspiring about the story was how the author addressed the issue of mental illness particularly bipolar disorder and anxiety.
It was incredible seeing things through Jonathan’s eyes. How he was feeling and how he reacted to stressful situations and realizing that having a mental illness doesn’t make you weak.
Maxine was also a wonderful character to meet.
It was great reading her transformation to a confident, secure, intelligent, strong woman.
Her relationship with Johnathan was wonderful (once she stopped hating him).

I really enjoyed this story and look forward to reading more books by this author.

Truth or Beard by Penny Reid

My rating: 5 of 5 stars


Full review posted August 3, 2015

5 -“Finally seeing what’s been right in front of you all along – tale of two twins” Stars!

Once again Penny Reid has spun a fantastic tale with wonderful, unique characters and an amazing story-line.

I’ve been anxiously waiting for this book since I was first introduced to Duane and Jessica in Penny’s short story “Double Dare” in the Anthology .

The only thing that pacified me over the past few months was the note that Penny left at the beginning of the short story “Double Dare” saying that this was the beginning of the first book in the Winston Brother’s series… and that it would be released in the beginning of summer 2015.

When I received the arc copy of this book a week before it’s release I literally devoured the book in one sitting…yep, it’s that good!

Right from the beginning the reader is drawn into the writing and the characters.

This story is about Jessica and Duane.
Duane has a twin brother Beau, who is considered the ‘nice’ one. He’s outgoing and charming.



Duane on the other hand is considered the ‘bad’ one. He’s broody and quiet, and when he does speak he doesn’t mince words. He says it like it is and doesn’t sugar-coat it.



Jessica is smart and level headed so it made sense to her that she would be drawn to Beau, so much so that that she gets tongue-tied whenever he’s around. Duane on the other hand has been Jessica’s adversary for as long as she can remember. When they were younger it seemed Duane went out of his way to torment and bully Jessica whenever he could, but rest assured Jessica gave as good as she got.

The story begins with Jessica attending a Halloween jam session and dinner at the community center. Jessica is also the high-school math teacher. She’s obviously smart, funny, and weird (all the things I love in Penny Reid’s characters!).

An incident occurs of mistaken identity when Jessica and (who she assumes is) Beau have a hot and heavy make-out session behind the stage at the community center. Jessica later realizes that it was really Duane pretending to be Beau. Jessica is shocked, angry and mortified to discover this, but can’t seem to get the feel of Duane’s touch and kisses out of her mind.

Duane had decided long ago that Jessica was the only one for him. He has waited for his chance to court her, and when the opportunity presented itself at the community center, he took it. He has been waiting patiently to finally be with the only girl he has ever loved.

This story is about two people have a chance to finally get to really know one another. They’re shocked and surprised to discover that they really like one another, and that they have a lot in common because they share many of the same memories.

As their relationship slowly grows, Jessica and Duane have to go through a lot of obstacles which include bearded brothers, and a blackmailing biker gang to get to where their meant to be.


This is a wonderful start to the Winston Brother’s series!
I can’t wait to read the next installment! ❤

THE REVELATION OF LIGHT AND DARK by Sawyer Bennett

From New York Times Bestselling Author Sawyer Bennett comes the Chronicles of the Stone Veil, a five book urban fantasy/paranormal romance series.

A departure from contemporary romance, the Chronicles of the Stone Veil is a return to fantasy/paranormal romance, where Sawyer started her fiction publishing journey. Readers can expect to find all the elements they love from Sawyer’s books—strong heroines, alpha heroes, and an epic romance—with a fantastical element to add to their reading experience.

About The Revelation of Light and Dark: 

I always knew I was different.

From a young age, my mind has been plagued with things only I could see. Some hauntingly beautiful, others completely terrifying. Never knowing if these visions were real or just hallucinations, I learned how to lock them down and ignore them. I learned to take solace in the relative anonymity of city life and find peace in the rainy days my city of Seattle is known for.

But just when I think my life is getting on track and my dreams are achievable, a moment of weakness causes me to learn a hard and fast lesson.

My entire existence has been a lie.

Now I’m faced with a new reality that’s as implausible as it is fantastical. Filled with realms and veils, light and dark, fae and daemons, gods and angels—things I don’t understand but am forced to acknowledge. It doesn’t help that the man teaching me about my unique gifts is the gorgeously handsome Carrick Byrne, one of Seattle’s richest and most powerful men.  He intimidates, annoys, and intrigues me all at the same time. I don’t trust him and yet there’s no one else to help me.

No longer certain who to put my faith in, what to believe, or how I fit into it all, one revelation is clear…

The world as I know it will never be the same again.

The Revelation of Light and Dark is book one of the Chronicles of the Stone Veil series and is best enjoyed if read in series order.

The journey begins now.

The Revelation of Light and Dark by Sawyer Bennett

My rating: 5 of 5 stars


Publication Date: February 9, 2021

What an amazing story!
I literally devoured this book in one sitting today.

I knew…KNEW that the first four three books were going to end in cliffhangers, I was warned about it when I requested the ARC, and I mentally prepared myself for it before starting this book.
But man! I really want the second book, like NOW!

I love Finley and Carrick’s hate/like relationship.
I love the world that Sawyer Bennett has created.
Her spin of the origins of Light and Dark Fae, and Daemons and the role they play in this world is creative and wonderful.
And what exactly is Finley’s purpose?

The writing, storyline, and fantastical characters are amazing.

This was a wonderful read for me, and exactly what I needed to read today.
Like I said above, I can’t wait to read the next book in the series, and I look forward to reading what happens next in Finley and Carrick’s adventure!

Happy Book Birthday!

Steal My Magnolia by Karla Sorenson is NOW AVAILABLE!

Steal My Magnolia is more than a love story. It’s a beautifully crafted journey of life full of obstacles but a journey worth the travel with the right person.” –Author Andrea Johnston

Steal My Magnolia, an all-new heartwarming small-town romance from Karla Sorensen, is now available in Kindle Unlimited!

About Steal My Magnolia

Life lesson from Grady Buchanan: If you’re going to fall in love with the untouchable girl in town, don’t hire her as your only employee.

Even after he bungled the interview with Magnolia MacIntyre, he knew better than to hire her. The list of why it’s a bad idea is a long one.

Her father could ruin his fledgling business.

She is completely overqualified.

And he’s attracted to her.

What does Grady do? He offers her the job.

Magnolia knew better than to take it. Normally, she’d make the safe choice, and working for Grady is anything but.

He’s new in town–and entirely too charming.

Her dad will be furious.

She hates the outdoors and working for an outdoor adventure company is not exactly the right fit.

What does she do? She says yes on the spot.

Grady and Magnolia will have to prove to everyone in their life that they’re not crazy. And prove to each other that the list of why it’s a bad idea should be tossed out the window.

For these two opposites, sometimes doing the wrong thing is exactly right.

‘Steal My Magnolia’ is a full-length contemporary romance and can be read as a standalone. Book #3 in the Love At First Sight series, Green Valley Chronicles, Penny Reid Book Universe.

Steal My Magnolia by Karla Sorensen

My rating: 4 of 5 stars


Publication date: February 9, 2021

Welcome back to Green Valley in Penny Reid’s Book Universe!

This is the third book in the “Love at First Sight” series written by Karla Sorensen.

Once again we revisit the Buchanan family curse, where when a member of the Buchanan family meets their “ONE” (in Green Valley) it’s love at first sight and for life.

Let me start by saying that this book can be read as a standalone, but the reader would definitely benefit from reading the previous book in the series Batter of Wits because the main character in this book is the previous books main characters, twin brother Grady.

What makes this story so good and engaging is that Grady’s “ONE” is the one person who would make his life complicated, weird, and awkward.
Magnolia MacIntyre, Tucker’s ex-fiance, the one he broke up with to be with Grady’s twin sister Grace.

I really liked the characters in this story.
Grady and Magnolia circle one another throughout the story, which builds their chemistry and attraction to one another.
That being said, this is a slooooooow burn.
I really love slow-burn romance especially when it’s well written and the author builds the couple’s relationship until the anticipation of them finally getting together is so worth the wait.

The reason I’m only giving this book a 4-star instead of a 5-star is because I thought the ending was kinda anti-climatic.

Yes, there’s a happy ending, but I was kinda expecting more raw passion when Grady and Magnolia are finally…FINALLY on the same page in their relationship.

Good story, and a great addition to the “Love at First Sight” series.

About Karla Sorensen

Karla Sorensen has been an avid reader her entire life, preferring stories with a happily-ever-after over just about any other kind. And considering she has an entire line item in her budget for books, she realized it might just be cheaper to write her own stories. It doesn’t take much to keep her happy…a book, a really big glass of wine, and at least thirty minutes of complete silence every day. She still keeps her toes in the world of health care marketing, where she made her living pre-babies. Now she stays home, writing and mommy-ing full time (this translates to almost every day being a ‘pajama day’ at the Sorensen household…don’t judge). She lives in West Michigan with her husband, two exceptionally adorable sons and big, shaggy rescue dog.

Excerpt

“Want to give it a try?” he asked.

I frowned. “What, me? In there?” I pointed to the ring, the walls made of black chain link fencing. “That looks like something out of a Mad Max movie.”

He smiled. “Come on. I’ll show you what I do, but you have to promise not to hurt me.”

He sat down on a metal bench that was next to the ring, took off his hat and toed off his boots and socks. He was serious, so I slipped off my flip flops. Leading me up the steps to the elevated fighting ring, he let me step in the ring first. The floor was firm, but it had a little give. “I have no idea what to do.”

“Okay, so you want to stand like this and put your hands up in fists, here and here.”He stood beside me, and I copied his stance. “Good.”

He moved to face me, hands up like mine. “Punch me.”

My eyes widened, and I dropped my arms. “Are you serious? I can’t punch you,”I said, looking at the other men who were over by the locker rooms, taking off their gloves and squirting water in their mouths from their water bottles. “Besides, we aren’t even wearing gloves.”

“Think of something that makes you mad. Got it?”

The first thing that came to mind was Jack. My eyes narrowed. “Yeah, I got it. My ex.”

He offered a quick smile. “Good. Now pretend I’m him. Punch him. Left, right. Like you mean it.”

I lifted my arms back to the position he’d shown me, then thrust out with my left hand. Gray’s arm came up to block my strike. When I shifted my stance and punched with my right, I felt my feet come out from underneath me, and the next thing I knew, his hands were on me and I was on my back on the ring’s mat with Gray sideways on top of me. In the blink of an eye—and with a care I doubted he gave to his usual opponents—he’d swept me to the ring floor. Gray’s chest was pressed into mine, and his face loomed over me. I was breathing hard, perhaps from the surprise move, but most likely because I had him on top of me, his mouth only inches from mine. There was no question he could hurt me, no way I could defend myself from him. Sure, I hadn’t really tried to punch him all that hard or quickly, but still. A champion fighter, he was so far out of my league. I knew, though, if I pushed against him, he’d let me up. I wasn’t afraid of him. I was in awe. And in lust. If I was this turned on with all our clothes on and in front of other people, what would it be like with him naked? And alone?

I licked my lips. My heart raced, and surely he could feel it. I could feel every inch of him, see the whiskers on his jaw, the darkness of his eyes. “Now what do you do?” I whispered.

Gray’s gaze lowered to my mouth. “If you were my competition, I’d try to either choke you out or do an arm bar.”

I felt every hard muscle of his torso, even though he held himself off of me with his forearms. Regardless, I felt pinned and at his mercy. I did not mind in the slightest.

“Choking doesn’t sound like fun, and I have no idea what an arm bar is,”I replied, licking my lips.

“Neither are fun,” he said, his gaze dropping once again to my mouth. “As for you—”

His eyes lifted to mine, and I blushed. “—I take you to lunch.”

He levered off me, stood and held out his hand. I just laid there for a few seconds and looked up at him. I had been ready for him to kiss me, and I’d loved how he felt pressing me down. My body felt taunted and now neglected. Was he torturing me on purpose?

Never in a million years did I think I’d turn to an advice column for help, but I’m stuck. Moving to New York is my dream come true, but the big city is a tough place to navigate for a small-town, southern girl like me. Luckily, fate sent me my very own knight in shining armor. 

Only Whitaker Aldrich didn’t ride in on his white steed to save me. He picked me up on his Harley Davidson, wearing a leather jacket and sporting a cocky smirk that doesn’t bode well for my man free diet. He screams one-night stand.

But there’s so much more to him than that bad boy billionaire persona. He’s thoughtful and kind and his six-year-old son is his entire world. 

That twinkle in his brilliant green eyes makes me weak in the knees and I’m terrified that I won’t be able to protect my already bruised heart. I should probably say no when he asks me to be his nanny, right?

Yeah, getting involved with Whit would be a huge mistake. 

I should definitely say no. Maybe… Possibly? 

Help! 

Yours truly,

The Billionaire’s Babysitter

Still Standing by Kristen Ashley

“Any hopeless romantic would devour everything Kristen Ashley has to offer!”

Fresh Fiction

Still Standing, an all-new white-hot, high octane MC romance and the first standalone in the Wild West MC series from New York Times bestselling author Kristen Ashley, is available now!

Synopsis

When Clara Delany walks into the Aces High Motorcycle Club’s hangout, she’s hit rock bottom. She’s hiding her car from the repo man, she has less than two dollars in her bank account and the only employment she can get is delivering messages for a criminal.

All because of a man. Therefore, she’s sworn off them.

And then she meets West “Buck” Hardy, president of the Aces High MC.

Buck also meets her, and the minute he does, he makes it clear (to everyone but Clara) that they’re starting something. Since Clara doesn’t get that message, she decides to leave Buck and sort out her life in order to come back to him clean.

She’s not gone but hours before life hits Clara with another blow. Which means Buck and his boys have to ride in and save the day. After that, Buck makes no bones about where they stand.

But does he?

Welcome to the first novel in the Wild West MC series which will tell the stories of the brothers of the Aces High MC, the Resurrection MC and the Chaos MC…and the women who love them.

Excerpt

“Babe,” he growled.

A warning.

Definitely.

I’d gone too far.

I also didn’t care.

“Okay, so then does Tia have to sleep with one, or, say, all of your boys?”

“Don’t do that shit. You know that’s not what I’m talkin’ about.”

“So maybe you’ll explain what you’re talking about.”

“I would, you shut your trap.”

I shut my trap and stared at his shadowed head.

He stared at mine.

Then he muttered, “Christ, need my head examined.”

“You could get off me,” I reminded him.

“Is this shuttin’ your trap?”

I shut my trap again.

“You take of care my house and my business as well as me.”

“What does that mean?”

“That means you move outta the apartment before they kick your ass out. You move into my house. You keep it clean. You keep me fed, that is, when I’m not feedin’ you, and I like to cook, so mostly, I’ll be feedin’ you. You come to work with me and take care of the office, and you go home with me.”

Wow.

Was he serious?

That sounded like…it sounded like…

My God, it didn’t sound like a sex-for-safety arrangement.

It sounded like a relationship.
