Repeat Offender by Lani Lynn Vale Cover Reveal

Title:  REPEAT OFFENDER

Series:  SOULS CHAPEL REVENANTS MC (Book #1)

Author:  LANI LYNN VALE

Genre:  ROMANTIC SUSPENSE

Cover Design:  COVER ME DARLING

Photographer:  FURIOUSFOTOG

Release Date:  JANUARY 12, 2021

 

Lynnwood Thatcher Windsor has lived a lot of lies. Seen a lot of good men go down.

But he will not stand by and watch as the world he’s built from the ground up burns to ashes before his eyes. Even if he has to build an army to combat the problem he sees brewing around him.

One step at a time, he carefully lays out his plan, building layer after careful layer until everything is where he wants it to be.

Every part is impeccably played, his pawns are in the perfect place, and then she barrels into his life, totally scattering every single piece he’s set in motion.

The bad thing is, she doesn’t even realize how badly she’s messed up until she’s roused the beast.

***

The day that Six Ines Broussard met Lynnwood Thatcher Windsor was the worst day of her life.

First, she has a public breakup with a man she’s not even dating. Second, she has to deal with a black-tie event that she’d rather gouge her eyes out than to go to. Third, she then has to sit at a table for hours on end with the one man she despises.

Just wanting a break, she thinks she’ll lose herself for a few hours and do what she loves to do best—spend time by herself and go for a walk in the middle of nowhere, spot some birds, and get a little sun. Only, her day doesn’t go nearly as planned.

She walks right into the middle of hell. And at the center of it? Lynnwood Thatcher. The mayor. The man that she took one glance at on the night of his inauguration and dismissed as boring. A total stick in the mud.

Only, he’s not so boring shirtless, in the middle of nowhere, doing things that are very illegal.

At first, she’s appalled. Then her interest gets piqued. Stuck-up suit is hot! And he has tattoos. Oh, and let’s not forget one hell of a mouth on him!

Then he goes and kidnaps her, and she realizes that nobody is quite as hot as you thought they were when they’re now holding you hostage.

Cover Design:  PERFECT PEAR CREATIVE

Photographer:  WONG SIM

Model:  MITCHELL WICK 

Release Date:  DECEMBER 8, 2020

 

Hollywood taught me everything I know about relationships—except how to be in one. As an actor, I became an expert at faking it. Faking that I wasn’t affected by my childhood. Faking that I was okay. Faking that I knew how to save the day, the girl, the whole damn world.

But I’ve always known the truth—I’m no one’s hero.

Until I’m forced to move back to Sugarloaf for six months, and Brenna Allen offers me a chance to prove otherwise. She’s everything I never knew I wanted, but can’t have. Her broken heart, perfect face, and adorable children turn my world upside down. Instead of preparing for my next leading role, I’m directing a middle school play.

All to make her smile.

The more time I spend here, the more I want to stay. Build a life in this town that I swore I’d leave—for her.

But when the world comes crashing down around us, I’m forced to decide if staying for her is the right choice or if leaving is better for the woman I love.

Flirting With 40 by K. Bromberg Blog Tour with Excerpt

FLIRTING WITH 40, an all new flirty, lighthearted, standalone romance by New York Times bestselling author K. Bromberg, is guaranteed to make you swoon and available to read now! 

 

Blakely Foxx is about to turn the big 4-0 and Slade Henderson thinks she’s hotter because of it.

 

Blakely Foxx is having one of those years.

Her divorce may have been finalized a few months ago, but her ex is already engaged to someone half her age. Her younger boss is determined to sabotage her chance at getting the promotion she rightly deserves. And to make matters worse, she’s closing in on the big 4-0. There isn’t enough wine or ice cream in the world to convince her things will turn around.

When Blakely meets Slade Henderson, she’s left wondering why an early-thirties, hotter than hell, cardiothoracic surgeon would take an interest in her.

She’s been warned that he’ll break her heart, but she’s willing to take the chance. Not only is he helping her get that promotion, but in the process, he’s encouraging her to find the parts of herself she’s lost over the past few years.

Slade shows her that good guys really do exist, but who knew the hardest part about turning forty would be realizing the man you thought was a rebound, is actually your happily ever after?

“….an absolute pleasure to read. …I barely lifted my eyes from my Kindle as I devoured this book.”  ~Danielle, Red Cheeks Reads

 

Check out Danielle’s 5 SMOOCHES review!

 

EXCERPT:

“The way I look at it, you owe me one.” His voice is just loud enough for me to hear over the din of the restaurant.

“I owe it to you?” I sputter.

Mm-hm.” He nods resolutely as he puts more space between us, and my lungs find a way to breathe. “You ran out the other night without giving me a chance. I could be the best thing that ever happened to you—platonic or otherwise—and you might have missed that opportunity if we hadn’t run into each other on the street this afternoon.”

Or otherwise?

He’s talking nonsense but is doing it so convincingly that I try to talk myself out of what he’s successfully talking me in to. “I don’t—”

“Does my age unnerve you?” he asks.

“Your age doesn’t matter.”

“Exactly.” He smirks. “So, why are you making it matter?”

I walked right into that one.

“We’re at different phases of our lives. You’re in your residency. I’m a divorcée with baggage—”

“Everyone has baggage. It just looks different from person to person.” He leans back in his chair. “What are you afraid of? Getting to know someone new? Taking a chance? Stepping outside of the box for once? Finding yourself again?”

His words root deep into me and take hold. “I appreciate you trying . . . but we’ll never pull it off.”

“Yes, we could.”

“No one would ever believe it.”

“Quit letting them—whoever they are—put you in a mold, Blakely. Make your own damn mold. You might surprise yourself in the process.” His dimples deepen, and his eyes are as unwavering as his resolve.

“How do I know you aren’t some Ted Bundy in waiting?”

His laugh is throaty and rich and draws the stares of those around us. “I’m in the business of saving lives, not taking them.” He takes a sip of his beer. “Next excuse?”

“I’m . . .” I’m at a loss, and a small thrill of adrenaline shoots through me. This isn’t something I’d ever do, and yet, the idea of it is invigorating, almost freeing. I chew the inside of my cheek as I contemplate agreeing to Slade’s crazy scheme.

“What do you say?”

Say yes.

“It isn’t a crime for a younger man to think an older woman is attractive.”

I bite my bottom lip as the smile creeps around it.

He is drop-dead handsome.

“We go as friends. I help you out. No strings attached.”

The answer is yes.

“When’s the last time you threw caution to the wind? When’s the last time you did something unexpected no matter how small?” he asks.

It’s always yes. 

“I can’t believe I’m saying this,” I mutter.

“Saying what?”

“Fine. Yes. Okay.”

SYNOPSIS:

Blakely Foxx is having one of those years.

Her divorce may have been finalized a few months ago, but her ex is already engaged to someone half her age.

REVIEW:

I’m all about light-hearted, fun and flirty reads these days, and K. Bromberg nailed all of that with Flirting With 40! This reverse age-gap romance with a fake relationship twist features a recently divorced almost-40-year-old heroine and a younger surgeon.

Blakely is newly divorced – with an ex who’s moved on to a much younger model – and is dealing with some workplace-related drama. As the blows keep coming, she struggles through all of it.  Her battles with her self-confidence issues made her all the more authentic and real and relatable to me. Slade, a cardiothoracic surgeon in his early thirties dealing with his own workplace issues, is currently on a bit of a forced sabbatical when he approaches Blakely in a bar. Their first meeting was anything but cute, but Slade was so persistent and charming that Blakely eventually warmed up to him.

I really loved Slade. He was so genuine in his interest in and pursuit of Blakely. He was consistently supportive and encouraging, and he really was the driving force behind not only Blakely’s personal evolution post-divorce but also her professional growth. Slade may have been handsome and sexy, but it was the way he handled Blakely that made him so completely swoon-worthy.

Flirting With 40 was an absolute pleasure to read. I was sucked right into this story from page one, and I barely lifted my eyes from my Kindle as I devoured this book. I loved every single second of Blakely and Slade’s sweet, sexy love story! Five smooches from me for Flirting With 40 by K. Bromberg!

“…wickedly witty banter and enough steam to power a sauna…” ~Danielle, Red Cheeks Reads

 

Check out Danielle’s 5 SMOOCHES review!

 

EXCERPT:

I’ve always had an inkling that Nate has wanted more from me, and it’s become more and more apparent lately, but me and Nate? That can never happen.

Nate’s Godiva chocolate and I’m just regular old Hershey. Nate’s Armani and I’m Walmart brand on a good day. He’s pure class and I’m just white trash. I’ll never let myself dull his shine. And now that we’re adults, Nate’s on one side of the law and I’m on the other. Too many things stand between me and the man of my dreams.

I try to make an effort to take shallow breaths so I don’t draw in too much of his manly scent, but it’s no damn use. His smell assaults my senses, making me feel loopy and lightheaded. My insides warm, and the whole thing pisses me off. What did he do today? Roll around in oranges and manliness before he picked me up? He smells ridiculous.

“Crack a damn window, Nate. It’s stifling in here,” I snap out.

Nate shoots a panty-melting smile my way like he knows what his smell does to me before saying, “Till, show some respect to the uniform. It’s Officer Trent.” His lips twitch in a barely there smile.

His bicep flexes as he grips the steering wheel to make a left turn, and I blush, thinking of all the ways I want to respect the hell out of that uniform. You know? With me under him. Me over him. Me on my knees in front of him. I smile. If he only knew how much I respected that uniform.

God, get your shit together, Tillie. Stop thinking about the hot cop you’re in love with and figure out how to get the hell out of this car.

I cannot let Nate take me down to the station. It’s unfortunate, this whole bounced-check situation. It really is, but it truly was unavoidable. I think of my good-for-nothing mother and roll my eyes. I’ve got to figure out another way to keep paying her debts off, because cleaning apartments at the retirement home isn’t cutting it. I’m not making enough money to feed myself and support my mother’s bad habits. But I refuse to let her contact Millie and upset her. I’ll pay my mother’s gambling debts forever if it means Millie can live free and clear of our mom.

I look to my right out the car window and notice Hannah, Millie’s best friend, driving her old, blue Ford Escort next to us. We’re coming up on a light, so I scoot closer to Nate across the bench seat of his cruiser until I’m pressed against his side, putting my plan into action. But my stupid pulse still kicks up a notch at our proximity, my body betraying me in the worst possible way.

His head turns to mine and our lips are a mere breath apart.

“What are you doing, Till?” he asks, his eyes genuine, and I almost feel bad for what I’m about to do.

Running my hand up from his knee to his thigh, I lean closer to him until our noses brush. “What do you want me to do, Officer Trent?” I breathe across his lips as my hand ghosts across the zipper of his blue trousers.

We stop at the light, and Nate closes his eyes and leans his head back against the headrest on a groan. I ignore the wetness that floods my panties and my desire to really grip his cock and give it a good stroke.

“Another time,” I whisper before quickly sliding back across the bench seat and throwing my door open. I don’t even slam it behind me as I run across the lane, my arms flailing, sweating like a whore in church.

REVIEW:

I’m just going to come out and say it: I love smut, and one of my favorite guilty pleasure pastimes is escaping into the pages of quick and dirty little insta-love stories. Amie Knight and Miranda Elaine’s second co-written novella, Miss Understood, hits that nail on the head, and I’m officially a fan! Having read many of these types of stories, I can admit that there is sometimes a bit of redundancy in this trope. The thing that sets this duo apart, though, is their wild sense of humor, and let me tell you, these two are seriously funny.

Typically these types of stories are all about the bad-boy alpha-male and his quest to land the virginal good girl of his dreams, and that’s all fine and good. But Amie and Miranda turn that notion right on its head with a squeaky-clean, good-guy cop and a sassy, naughty girl. Tillie may put up a wall of attitude as high as the fence around the prison she could very well end up in, but Nate sees right through it to the kind-hearted, slightly lost, in-over-her-head girl underneath. Despite her bad girl rep, though, Tillie is really just trying to protect Nate, and her twin, Millie, from the mess of trouble that swirls around her.

Nate’s been patient, he’s given Tillie time to get herself together, but he’s done waiting. He’s going to use whatever means necessary, including his handcuffs, to corral his girl and clean up her mess so they can finally be together. Individually the Coletrain twins are handful, but the two together fill poor Nate’s hands to overflowing when they decide to handle matters on their own. Add in a biker looking to collect what he’s owed and the twins’ best friend—who is definitely not the voice of reason—and not even back up in the form of Millie’s bail bondsman boyfriend, Jake, can level the playing field in Nate’s favor.

Jam packed with hilarious antics, wickedly witty banter and enough steam to power a sauna, Miss Understood was an amusing and sexy pleasure to read with a sweet surprise twist that I wasn’t expecting! I demolished this one, loving every single word of it! Five smooches from me for Miss Understood by Amie Knight and Miranda Elaine!

REVIEW:

There’s a couple of things I know for sure. For example, I know that if my house were on fire, I’d be grabbing my Kindle on the way out. Another thing I’m certain of is that when I need a sweet and sexy romance to make me feel good, I can count on Lauren Blakely to provide it.

Thanks For Last Night, Blakely’s new standalone romance within The Guys Who Got Away series, features a positively enchanting friends-to-lovers romance. Pro-hockey player, Ransom, and his gal pal, Teagan, both have their own relationship baggage, but their friendship is solid.  Aside from sharing a close-knit group of paired-up friends and being the last two singles of their group, Ransom and Teagan also share an easy, effortless friendship. Inside jokes and common interests aside, they genuinely enjoy each other’s company, and they have natural connection that often shows itself in their witty back-and-forth bantering. So, when Ransom needs a favor, he calls on Teagan, and in doing so, the long-buried lust between them bubbles to the surface.

The chemistry between this couple was absolutely electric. The pent up need and desire they both harbored for each other was undeniable, and Blakely managed to completely steal my breath with the way she communicated those feelings. Both Teagan and Ransom have some relationship baggage that makes risking the friendship they share—as well as the friendship of the others in group—a scary prospect for both of them. But that genie is out of the bottle, and with all their friends pushing them together, the impossible starts to feel a lot more like the inevitable.

Friends-to-lovers is one of my top favorite tropes, and I always seem to connect to these types of stories, probably because I’m living my own friends-to-lovers happily ever after. Blakely never disappoints with this type of story, and she delivered a wonderful, full-circle kind of romance in Thanks For Last Night. It was light-hearted, romantic and rich in the kind of heart-tugging emotion that doesn’t tip the scales into angsty. A sizzling attraction couples with a firm foundation of friendship and an effortless connection into an unputdownable story that kept me glued to my Kindle. I loved every single word, step and minute of this story. Lauren Blakely’s Thanks For Last Night gets five smooches from me!

Single Dad Seeks Juliet by Max Monroe Cover Reveal

SINGLE DAD SEEKS JULIET, an all new fun, sexy and hilarious rom com from New York Times bestselling author Max Monroe coming October 13th and I have the amazing cover!

 

Dear Internet: Am I a horrible person for wanting to sabotage my work assignment—completely wreck a dating contest—because I hate the idea of love?

I know it sounds bad, but just hear me out, okay?

I (33F) work at a local paper, and two months ago, my editor assigned me a huge project—run the upcoming, highly anticipated Bachelor Anonymous contest.

In essence, I’m supposed to help a reader-nominated bachelor find his special someone, and while I should be excited to handle something of this magnitude solo, I can’t help but get queasy over how gross it feels.

Like, how cheesy could this thing get?

Not to mention, I’m the last person who should be involved in this—my dating and relationship history is a cluster. Generally, the person in charge of these things shouldn’t fantasize about lighting the whole three-ring dating circus on fire.

Anyway, men from all over Southern California, vying for the coveted bachelor role, submitted their personal ads to my paper. The readers voted, and Single Dad Seeks Juliet won by a landslide.

Enter Mr. Bachelor Anonymous (40M), the single dad Romeo seeking his Juliet.

Blah, blah, blah, right? Wrong.

You guys—and I cannot stress this enough—this guy is the ultimate man in a six-foot-three, chiseled-muscle, freaking Adonis package with aquamarine eyes that would haunt the dreams of an insomniac.

He’s a former Navy SEAL, successful business owner, motocross-riding, charming, supportive, funny-as-heck single dad, and the more time I spend with him, the more I want to bring this contest thing crumbling to the ground for an entirely different reason.

Real talk: I think I’m falling for him.

Me, the woman who despises love, might be falling for the completely off-limits Bachelor who I’m ironically assigned to help find love, while five other women think they’re the only contestants competing for his heart.

So, Internet. Am I scum? Or is all fair in love and war?
