Synopsis

A full length, standalone SEAL novel releasing SUMMER 2017…

Ben Brahms shed his glasses, gangly body, and a life long pact to attend an Ivy League college with his best friend the day the world took on a sinister hue. With his outward appearance matching his new career as a Navy SEAL, Ben is saving the world…literally, at the expense of everything he gave up. A whole life.

Her.

Harper Rosehall honors the pact. She takes on, and then dominates college on the opposite coast. Always the geek, and always behind socially—especially with men, she blossoms. With her moral compass guiding her, she finds herself drawn back to San Diego and all she left behind.

Him.

With memories from their pasts haunting every interaction and decision in their present—and future, their timing never seems to be quite right.

A marriage.
A baby.
Nothing.

Some friendships last the test of time, can Ben and Harper’s stand the tests of life?
Life doesn’t care what you love, it takes it away anyways

 

REVIEW

Ben and Harper have been best friends since they were little and have been through everything together. But when the world changes after the 9/11 attacks, their plans of going off to university together suddenly falls apart as Ben decides to go into the marines. Despite the distance and times of not talking, they remain strong and their feelings of friendship start to grow into feelings of romance. But boyfriends, girlfriends, timings, pregnancy and heartache keep them apart. Will these two ever have their moment to become more than just friends or will their lives and the obstacles thrown at them keep them apart and maybe even ruin their lifelong friendship? 

“I’ll never give up hope. I can’t. Not after everything we’ve been through. As I fall asleep I’m left with only one thought: Love sews souls together. Life picks at the stiches.”

This was an extraordinary story of the strongest friendship turning into the most beautiful romance. Two people who are so obviously meant to be together but can never quite come together as life and obstacles keep them apart and throw even more distance between them. Ben and Harper’s story will pull at your heartstrings and make you believe in true love again.

“You’re it for me, Harper. The one. The dream girl. The woman I’d break every rule to be with.”

Ben and Harper were both extremely loveable characters and their relationship from the beginning was just so beautiful to read. Ben was a geek turned hot marine but despite growing muscles and becoming a brave and admired marine, his personality never changes and his feelings for Harper remain as strong as ever. I admired that he always kept true to himself and the way he felt for Harper and wanted to protect and look after her was quite literally sigh worthy and had me wishing I had a Ben of my own. Harper had also been a bit of an odd ball when she was younger but that didn’t stop her turning into a beautiful, kind and loving young women. The way she always looked out for others feeling before her own, no matter if it broke her heart, was so admirable and I desperately wished she would get her HEA that she so truly deserved. 

“So, here I stand, wearing a rose-colored midi length dress that’s actually cute, carrying a swath of flowers, watching Ben, my best friend since age three, marry her. He smiles at me and I see everything behind it. I know him like the back of my hand, like a conjoined twin, like the only man I’ve ever loved.”

This was just a beautiful friend to lovers romance with quite a bit of heartbreak, frustration and drama thrown in. There was definitely some surprises that caught me off guard and I honestly wasn’t sure if Ben and Harper becoming more than friends was in the cards for them, especially when more and more obstacles were thrown into their path. I laughed, cried, wanted to throw my kindle down in anger and ultimately fell in love with the characters and their story. A beautiful love story for two beautiful characters!

Wild Card is a standalone novel and the first book in the North Ridge Trilogy about rough and rugged Canadian mountain men, the Nelson brothers. Canada’s never felt so hot.

She swore she’d never go back home.

She swore she’d never see the man who broke her all those years ago.

But you don’t always get to choose your path.

And sometimes that path is as wild and rugged as the heart.

Rachel Waters thought she saw the last of the small mountain town of North Ridge, British Columbia, when she left six years ago. But while her advertising career blossomed beneath the skyscrapers of Toronto, her mother’s sudden illness has the 26-year old returning to North Ridge to care for her, putting her career on hold while dealing with family secrets, regrets and unresolved goodbyes.

Shane Nelson has always been a bit of a wild card. The youngest of three brothers, Shane’s spent most of his life being underestimated and misunderstood. With his quiet intensity, classic good looks and thoughtful demeanor, he’s an enigma on horseback, managing his father’s sprawling ranch on the slopes of North Ridge.

But while Shane remains the quintessential brooding cowboy, complete with an arsenal of inner demons, all of that changes when Rachel steps back into his life.

She was the girl he pushed away.

Now she’s the girl who wishes she could leave.

Despite the odds, Shane will do everything to convince Rachel he needs a second chance that he doesn’t deserve but when the two of them head off into the wilderness together in search of lost cattle, more than just their hearts are at stake.

Whether it’s love or lives on the line, one thing is for sure: always bet on the wild card.

REVIEW

I once went to a signing and met Karina Halle.  I stood in her line with all of her travel romances gripped tight in my hands, so excited to get them signed.  Beyond thrilled to ask her when she would release her next one.  She was sweet, signed my books and politely informed me there would be no more travel romances.  That her publisher canceled the series.  I almost cried but crying in front of Karina Halle about her books would have been weird and I’m already weird enough.  So the publisher may have put the kibosh on her travel romances but I forget that every time I read one of her books I’m traveling.  While the characters may not be traveling to great places, I am.  Because this author always manages to describes places so vividly and beautifully and this book was no exception.

I love cowboys.  I love second-chance romance.  I love a homecoming so this book really was a hit for me.  It packed at an emotional punch with a really sad backstory and childhood love.  This really was an epic love story that spanned a lifetime and my God it set up the rest of this series beautifully.  I am dying for Maverick and Fox’s story and the rest of this series.

Wish You Were Here by Renee Carlino Review

32620360

4.5 Smooches

a5 a4 a3 a2 a6

Synopsis

Charlotte has spent her twenties adrift, floating from interest to interest, job to job, and guy to guy, searching for a spark but never quite finding it. All she knows is that she won’t discover it working as a waitress at a pies-and-fries joint in Los Angeles or living with her fun but aimless best friend in a tiny apartment in the Arts District.

Then Charlotte collides with Adam, a gorgeous and soulful painter who seems just as lost as she feels. Their instant connection turns into a midnight drink… and a whirlwind night of champagne, Chinese food, and the kind of conversation that only happens in romantic comedies. But the next morning, Adam gives Charlotte the cold shoulder, leaving her confused and hurt—and wondering if the few odd moments between them the night before were red flags in disguise.

Months later, Charlotte hasn’t been able to shake Adam, so she decides to find out what happened the morning after their magical night together. This fateful decision rewrites their wild love story, but what Charlotte doesn’t know yet is that the ending has already been written.

Review

WOW! Now that was an emotional rollercoaster ride. I had so many strong feelings when reading this book that it is impossible to deny what an amazing writer Renee Carlino is. My emotions were all over the place when reading. At times I was in love with these flawed characters and at times I wanted to smack some sense into them But the moral is I was constantly feeling something. A sign of a great book.

I can’t go into great plot detail because . . .  spoilers, but this book hurt in that way that makes you feel alive. I wasn’t always happy with where it went and I was often quite mad at the protagonist, Charlotte, and her self-centered ways but ultimately I wanted to see where she would end up. For me while there is a heavy romance aspect, that did get sexy at times, this almost read like women’s fiction. While the romance was a driving force in the plot, the real story was Charlotte’s self discovery and her finally learning to let go and love herself and love life.

Wish You Were Here is a powerful story but be prepared . . .  tissues are a necessity and try not to question to much, just go along for the ride.

Don’t Call Me Sweetheart by Codi Gary Review

aa

4.5 Smooches

a5 a4 a1 a2 a6

Synopsis

Weddings are big business in picturesque Sweetheart, California, and Something Borrowed’s rent-a-bridesmaid service is thriving among the Hollywood elite. For the women who work there, a walk down the aisle is just a paycheck—until the right guy makes it priceless . . .

RULE #1: GROOMSMEN ARE STRICTLY OFF LIMITS

Marley Stevenson never imagined her stint as a rented Maid of Honor would practically become a career. Then again, nothing in her life has gone according to plan. At least the money’s good—and she needs it to pay off student loans and help out her mom. But the job has rules, which have never been an issue . . . until one encounter with a gorgeous best man—and his swoon-worthy Southern accent—sends Marley reeling.

Determined to get through the weekend with her professional reputation intact, Marley grits her teeth and sends out her best “unavailable” vibes, but Luke Jessup doesn’t give up that easy. A former Marine and a current SWAT team officer, his focus is legendary—and it’s on Marley. Jeopardizing her job is bad enough, and starting a relationship based on half-truths is worse—yet Marley is beginning to wonder if certain risks are worth taking, especially in the name of true love . . .

Review

I really enjoy Codi Gary’s small town stories and this one had a fun bridesmaid for hire twist added to it. Don’t Call Me Sweetheart is so unique and fun I read straight through in one day!

“Check out my ass again, and you’re going to find your balls in your throat.”  “I love it when you talk dirty to me.”

Marley and Luke are put in impossible situation, she can’t let him know she was hired as the made of honor in the wedding he is the best man in and if she acts on their chemistry she is in breech of contract and can lose out on all the money she is counting on to give her a new start in life. She knows she should stay away but the pull she feels with him makes that almost impossible. I really enjoyed their rendezvous and I honestly truly loved me some Luke Jessup He was dream worthy.

This was a fun idea and Codi Gary did it justice. Don’t Call Me Sweetheart is full of fun antics, addictive side characters, tons of steam and an overall enjoyable plot. Well written and thought out you won’t regret this!

“Meader’s strength is creating characters who live, breathe, and jump off the page; Remy and Harper shine, and the supporting cast of characters, including Harper’s half-sisters, is very strong. The mix of sexual tension and emotional decisions will lead Meader’s series launch to many a keeper shelf.”

Publishers Weekly STARRED REVIEW

“Meader takes her readers on a breathtaking, non-stop, glorious ride. The sex scenes are lyrically written with fresh, descriptive prose. Enough is included about hockey to add its fast rhythm to the book. Remy’s family is multi-faceted and fills the pages with joy. Readers will love the relationship between Remy and Harper, and will be excited for the next story — Isobel’s.”

RT Book Reviews Four and  a Half Star TOP PICK

IRRESISTIBLE YOU kicks of the all new, scorching Chicago Rebels hockey series by Kate Meader, featuring her signature “steamy sex scenes, colorful characters, and riveting dialogue” (Romantic Times). Three estranged sisters inherit their late father’s failing hockey franchise and are forced to confront a man’s world, their family’s demons, and the battle-hardened ice warriors skating into their hearts.

Harper Chase has just become the most powerful woman in the NHL after the death of her father Clifford Chase, maverick owner of the Chicago Rebels. But the team is a hot mess—underfunded, overweight, and close to tapping out of the league. Hell-bent on turning the luckless franchise around, Harper won’t let anything stand in her way. Not her gender, not her sisters, and especially not a veteran player with an attitude problem and a smoldering gaze designed to melt her ice-compacted defenses.
Veteran center Remy “Jinx” DuPre is on the downside of a career that’s seen him win big sponsorships, fans’ hearts, and more than a few notches on his stick. Only one goal has eluded him: the Stanley Cup. Sure, he’s been labeled as the unluckiest guy in the league, but with his recent streak of good play, he knows this is his year. So why the hell is he being shunted off to a failing hockey franchise run by a ball-buster in heels? And is she seriously expecting him to lead her band of misfit losers to a coveted spot in the playoffs?
He’d have a better chance of leading Harper on a merry skate to his bed…

Check out our 5 smooches review HERE.

Excerpt

Two things happened simultaneously: Harper’s eyes went wide, and Remy realized he was cold. Both of these things were related.

He’d answered the door completely naked.

And his boner was back, urgent as ever, though he wondered how long that would last because it was pretty fucking chilly out here.

“I’ve interrupted something,” she said, her gaze greedily roving his still-damp body.

“Only a pity party in my shower.”

She swallowed audibly, and just that sliver of vulnerability had him ready to fall to his knees for her. She was here, yet he had the distinct feeling that rushing her would be bad. This woman was like a high-strung filly that needed gentling and every ounce of TLC he possessed.

“Minou, talk to me.”

A shallow breath was followed by . . . another shallow breath. Before he could worry about which would happen first—Harper’s panic attack or his dick dropping off like an icicle—she spoke, her voice scarcely above a whisper.

“I shouldn’t be kissing you. I shouldn’t be touching and licking and stroking your hard body. I shouldn’t be begging you to take me all night long. I shouldn’t be fantasizing about the player I signed to save my team and career because this could be the very thing that tanks my team and career.”

His sexy little minou was hurting, and the only cure was the thing that might destroy them both.

Review

Kate Meader never fails to deliver for me. I love a hockey book and to be honest I was worried that I wouldn’t love it as much as I love her firefighter book because I have read a TON of hockey books. I should feel silly to have ever even had such a thought. Irresistible You was amazing. Harper and Remy were more than I could have imagined.

Remy was to die for, with his bulking frame, tough demeanor and penchant for breaking out his French at just the right moment, the Cajun hockey player hit all my buttons just right. For her part Harper was equally tough but soft when needed. Being boss and employee put them in a tough spot and watching them tread the waters of a fling when both knew it was a bad choice was hot and intense.

If you a hockey fan than this is a book you don’t want to miss. These two have an undeniable chemistry and the circumstances forcing them to keep secret only made everything more exciting. I am a long time Kate Meader fan and this is just one more in a string of amazing books from her. Grab it today!

Royally Endowded by Emma Chase Review Blitz

 

 

 

 

Logan St. James is a smoldering, sexy beast. Sure, he can be a little broody at times—but Ellie Hammond’s willing to overlook that. Because, have you seen him??

Sexy. As. Hell.

And Ellie’s perky enough for both of them.

For years, she’s had a crush on the intense, protective royal security guard—but she doesn’t think he ever saw her, not really.

To Logan, Ellie was just part of the job—a relative of the royal family he’d sworn to protect. Now, at 22 years old and fresh out of college, she’s determined to put aside her X-rated dreams of pat-downs and pillow talk, and find a real life happily ever after.

The Queen of Wessco encourages Ellie to follow in her sister’s footsteps and settle down with a prince of her own. Or a duke, a marquis…a viscount would also do nicely.

But in the pursuit of a fairy tale ending, Ellie learns that the sweetest crushes can be the hardest to let go.
***
Logan St. James grew up on the wrong side of the tracks, in a family on the wrong side of the law. But these days, he covers his tattoos and scars with a respectable suit. He’s handsome, loyal, brave, skilled with his hands and…other body parts.

Any woman would be proud to bring him home to her family.

But there’s only one woman he wants.

For years he’s watched over her, protected her, held her hair back when she was sick, taught her how to throw a punch, and spot a liar.

He dreams of her. Would lay down his life for her.

But beautiful Ellie Hammond’s off-limits.

Everybody knows the bodyguard rules: Never lose focus, never let them out of your sight, and never, ever fall in love.

Ellie

But then the mood shifts, as if the air becomes thicker, weighted, more . . . sultry.

Because slowly, Logan sinks down to one knee in front of me—looking in my eyes the whole time. In this position, I could touch his shoulders, comb my fingers through his thick, dark hair. He’s the perfect height for me to bend down and kiss his mouth—the perfect height for him to kiss me back . . . in a lot of places.

My breath hitches. And I wonder he feels it too.

There’s a sound of tearing Velcro, and Logan takes something off his ankle—a holster, with a small silver knife, about three inches long.

“Keep this on you all the time,” he says seriously. “Just in case. If you wear a skirt, the strap will fit around your thigh.”

And I almost laugh. Most girls get a ring from a guy on his knees. I get a murder weapon. But still, it makes me feel safe . . . watched over. Like I’m something precious that deserves to be protected.

I take the knife from him, testing the surprisingly solid, heavy weight of it in my hand. I press my index finger to the tip.

Logan grabs my wrist tightly. “Careful. It’s sharp.”

There’s a small, painless nick, a tiny bead of blood, so I put my finger in my mouth, sucking.

And Logan’s watching me again.

Watching my mouth.

His chest seems to rise just a little faster, and his throat ripples when he swallows. He bends his head, curves his strong back, and then I feel his hands on my ankle, securing the strap. His touch is warm and self-assured. It’s the way he always moves—confident and experienced. Logan knows his body and he knows how to use it, in every way possible.

I almost moan. The sound is in the back of my throat, but I keep it trapped. I never knew the ankle was an erogenous zone, but it sure as hell is now. A hot pulse of pleasure streaks from Logan’s fingers on my bare skin, up my thigh, between my legs.

And I throb there, growing swollen and heavy as he keeps his hands on me.

Can he tell? Does he know? He’s so aware of everything, always so attuned, I wonder if he can sense my arousal . . . feel it in the air that clings between us.

REVIEW

Gah, I have been so excited for Ellie and Logan’s story and when I saw this amazing cover and blurb, I was hooked.  I love friends to lovers story but this was so much more.  Logan and Ellie’s book spans years and every day, every month, every dang year I fell more in love with them.  They go from virtual strangers to acquaintances but it isn’t long before Logan is charmed by Ellie.  Who wouldn’t be?  She’s fun, spontaneous, and above all selfless and sweet.  Her grab life by the balls attitude made me smile on more than one occasion and I found myself loving her just as much as Logan did.

What can I say about this series? It just seems to be getting better and better. I can’t get enough of these sweet, hilarious men and the heroines that steal their hearts and give them a little bit of hell along the way.  These books are laugh out loud funny and somehow manage to still have the perfect blend of swoon and angst.  No one does romcom quite like Emma Chase
