SYNOPSIS

Some temptations are just not worth the complication.

Victoria Hollingsworth does not need a surly, uncommunicative bodyguard cramping her style, following her everywhere, and intimidating any would-be male callers. She’s a florist for goodness sake, not a princess or a pop star. Having a massive, mysterious bodyguard always hovering is an inconvenience. And yet… there he is, Tyler Chambers, her unwanted protector, ultra-serious, no-nonsense, and off-the-charts hot. Vicki doesn’t want, or need, him as a bodyguard. Yet, disturbingly, he may be everything she wants, and needs, in a man.



Ty hates his current long-term assignment. It’s mind-numbingly tedious. Vicki Hollingsworth is a pain in the butt who talks too much, laughs a lot, and frequently tests his patience. And her life isn’t exactly filled with intrigue and action. Ty is ready for this job to be over. He has a couple of months left before reassignment. So close to being out of here he can taste it. The last thing he needs is to suddenly find his cute-as-a-button charge irresistibly attractive. She’s not his type. Wholesome, adorable, and sweet, Vicki is the kind of woman who needs long-term commitment. And all Ty has to offer is a few short weeks of far-from-wholesome pleasure.

How much chaos can one little florist introduce into his regimented life? Ty is about to find out.

Forrest for the Trees (Green Valley Heroes,#1) by Kilby Blades is NOW TOURING!

Forrest for the Trees, an all new slow burn small town romance from Kilby Blades, is LIVE in Kindle Unlimited!

Synopsis

Forrest Winters isn’t just a federal fire marshal; he’s a thorn in Ranger Sierra Betts’s side. The way he swings his big axe, fixes her with his chameleon gray eyes, and talks about his jurisdiction has a way of breaking her concentration. He has a way of showing up everywhere he doesn’t belong, including Greenbrier Ranger Station. And he really needs to quit stealing her bacon bites.

When a series of suspicious fires, an underhanded co-worker, and a cagey Parks Police Chief threaten her job and the park itself, Sierra grudgingly agrees to partner with Forrest. Their side investigation may be her best shot at preventing the framing of an innocent man. But can his firefighting expertise and her detective skills lead them to the real arsonist before Forrest breaks her with his charm?

‘Forrest for the Trees’ is a full-length contemporary romance, can be read as a standalone and is book #1 in the Green Valley Heroes series, Green Valley Chronicles, Penny Reid Book Universe

Forrest for the Trees by Kilby Blades

My rating: 5 of 5 stars



PUBLICATION DATE: September 28, 2021



This is definitely my favourite books of the year!
I loved the characters!
I loved the writing style of Kilby Blades.
This was the first book I’ve read from her and it certainly won’t be my last!
What a wonderful story and an absolutely great start to a series!
I hope Kilby Blades continues to write with SmartyPants Romance because she friggn nailed it!

I loved the mystery of who was setting the fires, the “good ol’ boy” politics and how an African-American woman had to navigate through ALL the blocks that were set up against her.

But, the chemistry and bantering between Forrest and Sierra was wonderfully, so wonderfully written and engaging, I couldn’t put this book down until the absolute end.
I love the enemies-to-lovers trope, it’s one of my favourites and Ms. Blades brought these characters full-circle to the absolute best ending.



I can’t wait to read more from this author and I can’t wait to read the next installment in the series!

Excerpt

“Do you walk around with bacon in your pocket or something?” Sierra asked.

Forrest gave Everest a final rub and rose to his feet. “I reckon it’s just good, old-fashioned Southern charm.”

Reaching toward his face, he pushed up the temple of his sunglasses until they sat on top of his head. Forrest looked down at her, smirk on his face, as usual, having his fun. Only, for Sierra, there was nothing fun about the heat that rose to her ears every time his gaze set on her, clouding her thinking with his smoky eyes.

Forrest’s eyes weren’t just gray, and they weren’t “just eyes.” His gaze was penetrating and clear, with dark lashes that matched his dark hair. His irises were never the same, though whatever their hue at any given moment, a dark charcoal ring that looked like drawn pencil outlined the lighter color, adding intensity. Today they shone brightly—the color of wet shale—a stark difference from the last time she’d seen him. They’d turned dark, like slate, when he’d talked about the fires. There was something wondrous, and magical, and devastating about watching the way they changed.

“What are you doing in my neck of the woods?”

Forrest chuckled and crossed his arms. “Your woods again, huh?”

Sierra mirrored his posture. “‘Neck of the woods’ is a Southernism. I know how y’all like your sayings.”

He laughed again, his voice rich and deep—another thing about him she had the bad habit of replaying in her mind.

“Better than a pig likes slop.” Forrest’s eyes twinkled.

It made Sierra grateful for her own sunglasses—windows to her soul, and all. She didn’t want to think what Forrest might notice if he really saw her then. He would never stop gloating if he knew of her susceptibility to his allure.

“You never said what you were doing here,” she pointed out.

“Following up on some potential fire hazards. Just being vigilant. You know how it is …”

Sierra nodded. “I do.”

“I was just down at the ranger station …” he began haltingly. “I wanted to thank you for what you left me—you know, my fire marshal snacks.”

Sierra bit her lip against her own smile. “You liked that, huh?”

“Not just me. The guys thought it was pretty funny.”

“You told me you could read, so I figured …” She trailed off innocently, and shrugged.

After their last conversation and his repeated, willful ignorance of her Tupperware marked specifically as being “Ranger Snacks,” she’d brought in a smaller Tupperware labeled “Fire Marshal Snacks.”

“Sad thing is, a different fire marshal must’ve beat me to it,” he continued. “Imagine my disappointment when I opened the container and it was empty.”

“Oh, no!” She feigned shock. “What did you do?”

“Picked up the phone and called Ed Ellis. Asked him to put out an APB to track down whoever had my bites.”

“Then you helped yourself to the ranger bites, I’m guessing.”

He made a production out of looking distraught. “They’re not as good as fire marshal bites, but I had no choice.”

He didn’t take his gaze off of her. When heat rose again in her ears, she knew she had to go. Plus, if she didn’t get moving, she really would be late.

“Nice to see you, Marshal Winters.”

His smirk melted into a half-smile. “Always a pleasure, Ranger Betts.”

Happy Book Birthday!
Key Change (Common Threads, #3) by Heidi Hutchinson is NOW LIVE on KU!

Key Change, an all new slow burn rockstar romance from Heidi Hutchinson, is LIVE in Kindle Unlimited!

Synopsis

Before Hannah was a 9-5 working, dinner making, homebody, she was Ashton James: a paparazzi-stalked pop star with more enemies than friends.

These days she has one priority: keeping her sister safe and away from the public eye.

Hannah was doing a great job, until the pesky little brother of an ex-fling discovers where she is, and wants her help launching his career.

Now she has to trust Johnny—whom she betrayed in more ways than one—to protect her whereabouts. Johnny may have an infuriating moral compass and the timing of a storybook hero, but is he immune to the temptation of revenge?

Johnny’s focus has always been his music business, and a bad influence like Hannah is the last thing he needs at work, or around his brother.

But some things are too powerful to be stopped. For someone like Hannah, second chances—in life and in true love—don’t exist. She didn’t think so, at least.

Johnny is about to prove her wrong, and being wrong has never felt so right.

‘Key Change’ is a full-length contemporary romance, can be read as a standalone, and is book #3 in the Common Threads series, Seduction in the City World, Penny Reid Book Universe.

Key Change by Heidi Hutchinson

My rating: 5 of 5 stars


So… I finished this book earlier today and I was in total love with the story.
I wanted more Johnny ( Johnny is literally too good to be true).



But, I wanted more of Hannah!

Hannah is possibly one of my favourite characters ever written because she speaks of her past mistakes (we all have them).
Her regrets (ditto).
And, how she was in the “time before”.
The time when she’d had enough of trusting the wrong people, giving in to her addiction to cope, and being a selfish bitch.
She was a person who was mean, cold, and used whatever she needed and whoever she needed to get what she wanted at (that time).

Now, after literally walking away from her (then) life, she’s trying so hard to be a better person, to make better decisions.
But, she second-guesses her decisions, she lives in self-loathing, and regret.
She can’t see that she deserves to be happy and that she’s a good person.

She’s now living in the “who she’s wants to be” period.
Her honesty is humbling.
Her reactions to situations are true.
Her self-doubt and questioning if she’s doing the right thing are honest and raw.

Of course, as a part of her personal growth and healing period in the present time, she would have to run into possibly “the one that got away” and who she also kinda destroyed at the same time because he was so good and pure.

Seeing Johnny after so many years, and their journey of discovery of “their new relationship” together was a wonderful, and engaging experience.

I will tell you that this book is not erotica, but the authors build up in Johnny and Hannah’s chemistry before they found “their moment” in the library is something that poets have written about.

It was


NIIIIICE!

johnny and Hannah’s journey after their moment is wonderful, terrifying, and absolutely beautiful.

I loved this book, and I highly recommend reading it.

Something Like Hate by Harloe Rae is NOW AVAILABLE!

SOMETHING LIKE HATE by Harloe Rae

Release date: June 10th

Genre/Tropes: Enemies-to-lovers/Billionaire Romance/Office Romance

A sizzling all-new enemies-to-lovers romance from USA Today bestselling author Harloe Rae where a billionaire CEO battles against a snarky redhead who has her own agenda.

Synopsis

“I’d say it’s nice to meet you, but I’ve never been a good liar.”

That’s his initial offense against me.

Don’t worry—there’s plenty more where that came from.

Landon Winters is colder than his last name suggests.

Cruel and callous too.

I’m certain he finds pleasure in making others miserable.

He’s a billionaire by his own making—not satisfied with simply inheriting a white collar and silver spoon.

Landon’s arrogance is so thick I could choke on the stench alone.

He’s also responsible for gouging a jaded chip into my shoulder.

The only saving grace is never having to see him again.

Wishful thinking is a fickle beast.

My boss just announced that Landon is my latest client.

I’ll need to impress him or kiss my promotion goodbye.

Either way, this is my chance to get even.

Revenge is all I see.

The price for redemption is steep.

Landon will pay a small fortune in humiliation.

And I’ll walk away filthy rich in vindication.

EXCERPT

“So, neither of us is willing to surrender.” His slight detour in topic raises my hackles. He could derail our discussion for hours with a few misplaced words.

I roll my neck, a few joints popping with the stretch. “I guess that leaves us to finally getting down to business.”

“It’s about damn time you’ve warmed up to my idea.” He reclines in his chair with a moan any porn star would envy.

“Oh, please, stop.” A retching sound yanks from my throat.

“Why should I? You’re quite gorgeous, Savannah.”

“Quit flirting with me.” My tone borders on begging.

“Why?” A curious sparkle twinkles in his gaze as he repeats the question.

“It’s… weird.”

“Only because you like me hitting on you.”

I make another show of choking on bile. “You’ll never get me to admit such a despicable thing.”

“A new challenge? I accept.”

Why does it feel like I just signed my own resignation notice? Veering this conversation onto professional ground is my only chance to salvage his account. “Ditto, which is precisely what your demands are to me. Did you get my emails with the listings?”

Landon scowls. “Yes, but that can wait.”

“It should take precedence. I’m prepared to accomplish actual progress on finding you a property. That’s why I’m here, remember?”

“Terms and conditions change by the minute.”

Something Like Hate by Harloe Rae

My rating: 3 of 5 stars


Publication Date: June 10, 2021



I truly love the enemies-to-lovers trope and was so happy to be approved to receive a copy of an ARC.
This is the first book I’ve read by Harloe Rae, but I have to admit, it took me a while to get used to her writing voice.

I really liked the premise of the story, but the banter between the protagonists was just so toxic, I thought I was going to lose a part of my soul just reading the schemes and lengths the characters were willing to go to in order to one-up the other.



I had to put the book down for a couple of days just to convince myself to give it a second chance and see where the author was going with the story.

I’m glad I did because it was definitely looking like it was going to be a DNF for me.

I absolutely HATED Landon Winters!
He was cruel, cold and conniving and the author did a fantastic job of making the reader hate him.
But, the reader doesn’t know how diabolical he is until he deals his final blow to Savannah Simon that has her leaving him almost broken.




What you have to understand is that Savannah is no push-over. She’s strong, smart, funny, and snarky.

She gives as good as she gets, but Landon is just so broken that he crosses a line that should never be crossed.



His journey to redemption with Savannah is what gives this book a 3-star rating and worth the read.



I’m glad I finished it, and now that I know what to expect in Ms. Rae’s stories I look forward to reading more of her work.

A BATTLE OF BLOOD AND STONE (Chronicles of the Stone Veil, #4) by Sawyer Bennett is now available!

The clock is ticking as the queen of the Underworld gathers everything she needs to bring Hell on Earth, while Finley, Carrick, and their friends, both human and otherworldly, work to find a way to stop her.

Synopsis

Another day, another step closer to Hell on Earth being unleashed.

With every piece that falls into place for the queen of the Underworld, Kymaris gains strength and power that will make it more difficult to defeat her when the time comes. It feels as if we’re in a desperate race to get just one step ahead of her, but my demise feels closer than it ever has before with still so much to do.

The first order of business is to unlock the angelic powers with which I was gifted at birth, and Carrick insists on getting help from my archnemesis to do so. Yes, I have to save the world, but my priority has now become rescuing my sister from the Underworld. While there are many questions still to be answered about my long-lost twin, I know I will not win this battle without her by my side.

In the midst of all the doom and gloom, Carrick has become my beacon of shining light. Our connection unimaginable, my heart recognizes his as the other half of its whole. Inexplicable and deeper than one could ever imagine, the love I hold for him is forged by destiny, however ill-fated it may turn out to be.

And those are the feelings I must hold close…to keep me going. Because a painful lesson is on the horizon—betrayal never comes from your enemies.

A Battle of Blood and Stone is book four of the Chronicles of the Stone Veil series and is best enjoyed if read in series order.

A Battle of Blood and Stone by Sawyer Bennett

My rating: 4 of 5 stars



Publication Date: April 13, 2021

A Battle of Blood and Stone is the fourth book in the Chronicles of the Stone Veil tetralogy, it also gives the reader a better understanding of the epic love story of Finley and Carrick that has lasted throughout time.




It’s both beautiful and tragic.



Their souls will always recognize one another, but fate (or Rune) is jealous, hateful, and vindictive and will stop at nothing to punish Carrick for the rest of his life for the one transgression he did against him.



I enjoyed this book.
A lot of answers were revealed.
Bonds were made stronger, and a key player was lost.



I didn’t suspect the traitor until it was too late, well played Ms. Bennett!



This book was the perfect preamble for the final battle against Kymaris.


I can’t wait to read the next book!
So many things could/can happen.

Review: Sunlight (Blood Magic, #4) by L.H. Cosway

Synopsis

Tegan is learning that it’s not all fun and games being in a relationship with the most powerful vampire in the city. For one thing, there seems to be a catastrophe around every corner, and for another, how can a relationship between a half-witch and an immortal actually work?

Fearing Ethan’s transformation, Finn has decided to escape the city with his friends in tow. Unfortunately, a magical barrier has been erected preventing anyone from leaving. Along the way he makes the acquaintance of a half-elf named Alora, who has just escaped her warlock kidnapper. Finn takes Alora under his wing and finds that his feelings for Tegan are fading as a new love blossoms.

In anticipation of Theodore’s next move, the group cast their prejudices aside and join forces one last time. They know that if the city is to have any chance of surviving, they must put an end to the sorcerer once and for all.

Sunlight is book #4 in L.H. Cosway’s Blood Magic Series. A previous unedited version of this story was published under the title Tegan’s Power.

Sunlight by L.H. Cosway

My rating: 5 of 5 stars


“5- It’s the attraction of the soul that links two people together- Stars!”



Sunlight is the final book in the Blood Magic tetralogy.
What a wonderful conclusion to this well-written, well-developed, and well-executed series!

I loved how Ethan and Tegan’s relationship has developed.
I love that they’re now free to love and be who they were meant to be with one another.

And even with so much power at hand, Ethan’s only want – his only need is to be Tegan’s.
Tegan is also learning to control and tap into her power, and with the introduction of her grandfather, The Sorceror Roman and the proposal he offers her she could have it all…after they’ve defeated Theodore.

Once again L.H. Cosway has taken her readers on an amazing journey of adventure and love with unique, interesting, likable characters who you are cheering for right up until the very end.

I loved this series and I especially liked the twist at the end of this book that almost had me throwing my tablet across the room.
Well played L.H!

This was a wonderful story and a great series!

Review of Nightfall (Blood Magic, #1) by L.H. Cosway

Nightfall (Blood Magic, #1) by L.H. Cosway

Synopsis

Tegan encounters all kinds of crazies working the night shift at a 24-hour grocery store. None of them, however, have anything on the handsome stranger who comes in one night and helps her fend off an armed robber. He looks the thief directly in the eye and without confrontation convinces him to turn around and walk out the door.

Tegan has never seen anything like it, nor does she understand why he then lays those mesmerising eyes on her and tells her to forget they ever met. She shrugs it off as just another weird night shift encounter, until the following evening when her best friend produces free passes to a new club in the city. Tegan agrees to go and is pleasantly surprised by the tasteful, classy décor and oddly beautiful, intensely ethereal clientele. To her surprise, her mysterious stranger is sitting smack dab in the VIP section. What are the chances?!

Tegan is struck by the coincidence of bumping into him again so soon, while he is furious that she remembers him when he insisted she forget their meeting. Tegan has no idea that she’s taken a misstep into a whole new world inhabited by vampires, slayers, dhampirs, witches and warlocks. All of whom display a wholly disconcerting interest in what makes her unique from the rest of the clueless humans who populate the city. On top of this, her handsome stranger keeps turning up at her work and seems intent on getting to know her a whole lot better.

Nightfall is book one in L.H. Cosway’s Blood Magic Series. A previous, unedited version of this story was published under the title Tegan’s Blood

Nightfall by L.H. Cosway

My rating: 4 of 5 stars


“4- Knights in shining armor don’t exist. There’s always a catch, Stars!”

L.H. Cosway is one of my favorite authors, and she’s one of my 1-click automatic buys.
So, when I heard she was releasing this series, I was really excited.


Nightfall is the first book in the “Blood Magic” tetrology.

Once again L.H. has created very interesting, and unique characters.
In this paranormal series, she’s created a world where Vampires, Warlocks, Witches, and shapeshifters exist but are unknown to the common folk.

This is a story of an average girl being at the wrong place at the wrong time and having the world as she knows it immediately being turned upside down.

I really enjoyed Ian and Tegan’s characters.
They are likable and engaging.
The attraction and chemistry between the two is wonderful, and I can’t wait to see what happens in the next book.

This is a good start to the series.

Synopsis

Dawn Botstein is doing just fine after her divorce, thank you very much.

She’s got her yarn store to run, her house to herself for the first time in her life, and no use for men anymore. That is until the hottie silver fox who walks into her store turns out to be her old high school crush—the guy who rejected her 30 years ago.

No way is she going to lose her head over him this time, no matter how well he wears that salt-and-pepper lumberjack beard. Okay, so he’s the opposite of her ex in every way, and his attention gives her a thrill she thought she’d never feel again. She’s not risking her heart again.

Mike Pilota is having a mid-life crisis.

Only instead of buying a red sports car he can’t afford and dressing like a 25-year-old who’s time-traveled from the 1990s, he quit his job after his second divorce to move closer to his recently widowed mother.

He didn’t expect to run into Dawn again, but as soon as he lays eyes on her he’s utterly smitten. So he sets out to make up for past mistakes and prove he can be the kind of man she deserves.

But is it too late for second chances? Or will these two lonely hearts find a way back to each other?

‘Mad About Ewe’ is a full-length contemporary romance and can be read as a standalone. Book #1 in the Common Threads series, Seduction in the City World, Penny Reid Book Universe. 

Mad About Ewe by Susannah Nix

My rating: 4 of 5 stars


Mad About Ewe, an all-new heartwarming second-chance romance from Susannah Nix, is coming on March 18th!


“4- It takes great courage to shoot for the stars!”

There were so many things I really enjoyed about this book.
1) It was a second-chance romance. Not only did the protagonists know one another from high school, but they were both basically starting their lives fresh after being divorced.

2) I LOVED that the protagonists were in their late 40’s.
They’ve lived some life.
There was the fact that there were grown kids involved. An aging parent. The recent death of a parent, and illness.
Real Life.

3) They also had insecurities about getting into the dating scene and/or possibly getting naked after being with the same person for so many years.

This was a wonderfully written and well-paced story.
I really enjoyed meeting Dawn and Mike.
Their story was great!

It was also lovely seeing some of my favorite characters from the “Knitting in the City” series.

A great start to a new series in the Penny Reid Universe.

“I voluntarily read an ARC of this book which was provided by Smartypants Romance in exchange for an honest review.”
