A WILD CARD KISS #1

Release Date: February 25, 2022

A sexy standalone romance between a single dad athlete and the woman who got away!

Things that suck on my wedding day — walking in on my groom kissing another woman twenty minutes before the ceremony.

Things that suck worse? The woman he’s kissing is my mom.

I head straight for the bowling alley bar down the street and ask for a double. And in walks a deliciously charming local football hero — Harlan Taylor.

Yes, I’ll take another drink in the form of a one-night stand with this hunk of a man. In the morning, he asks if I want to get together again. More rebound nookie? Yes please!

But then I learn his football team just hired my yoga studio to teach downward facing dog to their star player, making my O-delivering hottie officially off limits.

Trouble is, the more time I spend working with the sexy single dad who dotes on his daughter, the more I’m feeling all the things far too soon.

There’s no way this can end well, but tell that to my runaway heart…

A Wild Card Kiss is a sexy, flirty sports romance featuring a charming, pie-baking, single dad who’s never forgotten the red-hot kiss he planted on the feisty, sassy blonde one night years ago and a jilted bride heroine determined to move on from heartbreak. This story contains sexy times that can cure getting-left-at-the-altar blues, and heart-tugging swoony romance that’ll melt the most jaded hearts.

If that’s not enough, the hottie and I are forced to work together on a brand new collection.

The Virgin Scorecard by Lauren Blakely Review

 

5 SMOOCHES!

* * * * * * * * * *

SYNOPSIS:

Indulge in this collection that begins with Mr. Right Now and Captain Romance — two romances between virgins and athletes that complete the bestselling RULES OF LOVE series.

Mr. Right Now
I’ve got a problem. After a dozen failed dates – but who’s counting – I’m done hunting for Mr. Right. I’m more than ready to cash in my V-card, and at this point I’ll gladly hand it over to Mr. Right Now. When I go out with my friends for a night on the town, I bump into the perfect candidate. A guy from my past who kissed like a dream but took off before we could say goodbye. The swoony, charming pro athlete is back in the city and he’s as ready to help me with my project as he is to win baseball games. The next morning, I’m deliciously satisfied and I know I’ve chosen wisely. But when he leaves again, I can’t stop wondering — what if Mr. Right Now is actually Mr. Right? And how do I get him back?

Captain Romance
I don’t have luck on my side when it comes to romance. That’s why I’m laser focused on my career as a sports reporter and making a mark as a woman in this tough field.
When one of the city’s baseball stars asks me to spend a night on the town, I have to draw the line. Just friends, I say.
He’s good with that.
Very good with that.
So good that I start falling for my new friend.
Of all the swoony, charming, thoughtful men in this big city, why is the one I want thoroughly off-limits? But if I want a chance with the guy they call Captain Romance, I’m going to have to put more than my heart on the line.

This collection also includes Kiss Your Tulips, Limo Bang, and DogFishing, three stories set in the Rules of Love world.

* * * * * * * * * *

REVIEW:

A fantastic collection of romantic comedy novellas and short stories from Lauren Blakely, The Virgin Scorecard was exactly what I wanted to read right now. All of the stories in this collection were quick reads set in fun, engaging tropes and got straight to the good stuff—the addictively steamy romances!

Mr. Right Now is a novella featuring the surprise reunion of high school sweethearts, Shane, a professional baseball player, and Clementine, a virgin. I loved following their sweet and seriously sexy second-chance romance—including a prom redo—as they rekindled their relationship!

Captain Romance, a friends-to-lovers forbidden romance novella, features baseball player and romance-novel-reader, Sullivan, and the sports reporter, Erin, covering his team. Despite being a quick read, Blakely indulges readers with a swoony, sexy slow burn build-up between this virgin and her ballplayer.

Kiss Your Tulips, a short story pairing florist, Frankie, and baseball catcher, Drew, in the sweetest meet cute of the collection. Frankie isn’t sure if Drew is flirting with her or just a friendly patron, and their wildly witty, pun-filled banter blossoms into a seriously hot connection.

Dog Fishing, a F/F epilogue/short story about Nova, a podcaster, who’s got a crush on comedian, Matilda.

Three Dates With You features two UK-based bar owners, Maeve, and Sam, who became fast friends after Maeve’s business partner and Sam’s good friend, Dean, left to plan his wedding in the US. Dave is newly divorced and not looking for a relationship, and Maeve is focused on her bar. Both of them have some events coming up and agree to attend them together. Cue the flirty banter, fireworks and feels in this friends-to-lovers novella!

My Single-Versary is a novella featuring happily single Skylar who’s on a trip celebrating her one year anniversary of being single. She challenges herself to do things outside of her comfort zone on this adventure, and promptly finds herself with her own personal tour guide as she snorkels and zip-lines her way through Hawaii. Caleb owns a tour company, and he lives by the mantra that you never date a client. They have plenty of exciting experiences below the surface and dangling from the tree-tops, but the truly heart-racing ones are those that they have together.

Limo Bang, a frenemies-to-lovers short story, pairs two rival billionaire baseball team owners in a seriously sexy, tit-for-tat situation. Marlow and Hudson have the kind of chemistry that radiates off them and other people can see and feel. They end up in their own dirty version of one-up-manship with highest of stakes – their hearts and a happily ever after.

Blakely caps this collection off with a teaser chapter of from A Wild Card Kiss, due out February 25, 2022 about a single dad and the woman who got away.

The Virgin Scorecard collection was fun and fiery and full of all the fantastic, feel-good moments and emotions I love from Lauren Blakely. It was the perfect little treat for this busy time of year and teeming with heat, humor and heart. Five smooches from me for The Virgin Scorecard by Lauren Blakely!

“…blisteringly sexy, intensely emotional with just enough angsty drama…” ~Danielle, Red Cheeks Reads

 

Check out Danielle’s 5 SMOOCHES review!

 

EXCERPT:

In an uncharacteristically clumsy move, I unzipped the side pocket while it was pointing down, and all its contents poured out onto the marble floor.

Rattled, I knelt down to gather my keys, a tube of lipstick—and watched in horror as a pink-encased tampon skidded along the polished surface to land in the hand of a stranger who’d knelt down to retrieve it.

Of course it couldn’t have been another woman who picked it up, or an older gentleman who would smile at me like, “there, there, we’ve all had embarrassing moments.” Nope, the man was young, gorgeous, and dressed in a three-piece suit, tailored to perfection. His baby face—with dimples—left me dumbfounded.

I straightened up and forced myself to speak. “Thank you.”

He held on to it, mischief spread all over his GQ-model face. “How can I be sure this is yours? Can I see some ID?”

His flirtation might’ve been cute if it had been a makeup compact or a pack of gum, but for a tampon, not so much. He inspected it curiously. “What is this?”

REVIEW:

I love Aubrey Bondurant’s books, and I’ve read them all. She describes her writing style as adult contemporary erotic romantic comedy—I like to call it smutty chick-lit—but whatever she calls it, you can count on an engaging, smart and witty story. She always pulls me right in with vivid details and relatable characters and a sexy, consuming love story. If you haven’t read Aubrey Bondurant’s books yet, you’re seriously missing out. She’s a not-to-be-missed indie author that contemporary romance readers need to have on their TBRs.

I’m really loving Aubrey Bondurant’s latest series, the Miss series. Workplace romances are a favorite trope of mine, and Aubrey does a fantastic job telling these complicated stories. I absolutely loved Kelsey and Dominic’s story. It was an emotional journey of a woman finding her footing after a lifetime of dealing with a narcissistic mother and ex. Nic was so charming. He’s a good guy, a little lost and looking for that something missing in his life, but he knew right away that Kelsey was it. The problem was she wasn’t sure if she could trust her instincts about him and if she should risk her newly healed, fragile heart. That’s where the fun began as Nic worked double time pursuing Kelsey.

Miss Treated was blisteringly sexy, intensely emotional with just enough angsty drama to keep me on the edge of my seat, furiously tapping my Kindle. The feels were real in Nic and Kelsey’s romance, and Bondurant perfectly peppered in some much appreciated humor and a bit of hope that pulled on all my heartstrings. I’m so excited for the next few books in this series, and I can’t wait to get my hands on them. Five smooches from me for Miss Treated by Aubrey Bondurant!

The Final Play by Amie Knight Cover Reveal

THE FINAL PLAY, an all-new must-read sports romance from Amie Knight, is coming February 3rd, and I’m excited to share the cover with you!

The Final Play isn’t always the end. Sometimes, it’s the beginning of something far more beautiful… 

 

As a professional linebacker, I lived and breathed football. 

The only thing I loved as much as the game was my twin brother, Max, who kept me almost as busy cleaning up his messes. 

The most recent of which landed him behind bars.

So, it shouldn’t have surprised me when a beautiful woman showed up on my doorstep, claiming to be pregnant with Max’s baby. 

Glory was unexpected, infuriating, and flat-out crazy most of the time.

But no matter how hard I tried to deny it, that tiny spitfire slammed into my boring life with the strength of a Category 5 hurricane, blowing through my defenses until she’d carved her name in my heart—permanently.

I feared we would never work. She was a single mom, my brother’s ex, and one more chance for me to fail yet another person I loved. 

But if football was my church, then Glory was my heaven.

Same Ol’ Situation by Lacey Black Release Blitz

SAME OL’ SITUATION, an opposites-attract, best friend’s sister, small town romance from USA Today Bestselling Author, Lacey Black, is available now!

He’s so different from any man I’ve ever known…

 

Isaac

I’m about as straight-laced and by the book as they come. They call me Numbers, the man in the office of Burgers and Brew, the restaurant and bar I co-own with my friends. Routine and spreadsheets, that’s how I spend my day. I’m a creature of habit, from the designer clothes to the same girlfriend, I crave the pattern I’ve become dependent on.

Until said girlfriend breaks up with me for the umpteenth time, and I find refuge in a woman who is my exact opposite.

I’m intrigued and completely out of my element, yet that doesn’t stop me from spending time with her. Even if I consider her off-limits, something about her calls to me.

The problem is I just might lose a friend because of it.

BJ

Most of the time, I would never look twice at Isaac Thompson. He’s all suits, ties, and expensive dress shoes, and I’m…well, not. My time is spent at the tattoo studio I work at, day and night, designing badass ink for clients who want the best. I have no room in my life for a relationship, nor do I care for the messes they always create.

Until Isaac finds me stranded on the road, and I end up inviting him inside.

Now, I can’t stop thinking about him. He’s so different from any man I’ve ever known, which is why we decide to keep it casual and fun.

Let’s just hope I can keep feelings out of the arrangement, so I don’t get burned.

REVIEW:

The Burgers and Brew Crüe series is about four college buddies who own the hot and happening gourmet burger and brew pub slash busy bar in Stewart Grove, Ohio. Same Ol’ Situation is book three in the series, and it’s an opposites-attract, best-friend’s sister, small town romance.

I’m a long time Lacey Black reader, and her small town romances are amongst my most favorite things to read. I really love this series, and it’s because of this group of guy friends. Same Ol’ Situation focuses on Isaac, the back office, finance guy of the group who the other guys have nicknamed Numbers. He’s a by-the-book, suit-and-tie guy who’s loyal and very hardworking. He’s just ended a long-term, on-again-off-again relationship that he now realizes was all wrong for him. After his breakup, he finds himself drawn to his best friend and business partner’s sister, BJ. A tattoo artist and piercer, she’s his total opposite in every conceivable way. She’s free-spirited, confident, inked and pierced. She’s unlike any woman he’s ever known, and he cannot get enough of her.

The chemistry between Isaac and BJ was so explosive, and what I loved was how much that took them by surprise. They were so very different, but yet they were also so well matched. This couple made my heart soar, and I was rooting for them from the start. Full of heart, heat and humor, I loved everything about Isaac and BJ’s sweet and sexy love story! Five smooches from me for Same Ol’ Situation by Lacey Black!

“…a love story full of feels, fun and fire. I positively devoured this book, loving every single moment, word and scene of it.” ~Danielle, Red Cheeks Reads

EXCERPT:

Prologue

Auggie stood at the front of the church and watched her walk down the aisle. The bridesmaids’ dresses Lottie chose were very Lottie. Sleek. Sexy. Baring.

All the women looked great in them, but none of them looked better than Pepper.

And he thought that even before Pepper, as she strutted down the aisle, caught sight of her daughter, Juno, and shot her girl a huge smile.

Pepper Hannigan was gorgeous.

Anytime she was with her daughter?

Knockout.

They were the next in the line of Lottie’s matches. Auggie and Pepper.

Mo and Lottie were the obvious firsts (Mo was one of Aug’s four best buds), and Lottie earning the love of Mo had been all Lottie’s idea.

Mo never thought he’d find anyone as fantastic as Lots, would never go for it, until Lottie talked him around.

Now Mo was standing at the front of their line, waiting to make her his wife.

Once Lottie got her happy ending, she set about giving the same thing to Mo’s friends…fixing them up with her own crew.

And so far, she’d done a bang-up job.

Mag and Evie, the second couple, were living together and getting married.

Boone and Ryn, the third, were tight, and further, they were in business together.

Axl and Hattie, the fourth, were as good as living together, and practically inseparable. It was him and Pepper who were the holdouts.

This was not for lack of trying on Auggie’s part.

Once he’d met her, Auggie saw no reason not to go for it.

She was gorgeous. She was funny. She spoke her mind. She was laid back. Together. She didn’t seem to have any hang-ups.

But Pepper saw reason not to give it a shot because she had a kid.

He got it. She was being careful. Whatever had torn her and Juno’s dad apart had made her skittish.

So yeah.

He got it.

That didn’t mean it wasn’t torture.

Like right now, when her eyes caught his, the smile that she gave her kid still in them,

and Auggie felt that. He felt it.

Damn.

It wasn’t even aimed at him in any real way, and that residual love she’d targeted at her daughter was so big, it took forever to fade away.

He’d never felt that kind of love.

Not once in his life.

And he wanted it so bad, the backs of his teeth hurt with the need to taste it.

He lost her attention when she shifted to take her place at the front of the church and

Auggie tore his gaze away from her to watch the next woman, Hattie, march down the aisle. On its way, his gaze snagged on Juno.

Dark hair to her mom’s blonde, she was all dressed up, her hair curled —her mom was a bridesmaid in a big wedding with all the prep that entailed, but it was clear Juno had not been forgotten.

She was staring at her mother, beaming with pride.

Seeing that beam made Auggie want even more of what he’d never had. From the both of them.

Come Again by Lauren Blakely Blog Tour

COME AGAIN, an intensely sexy and hilarious all-hero POV enemies-to lovers standalone romance set in the Big Rock world from #1 New York Times Bestselling Author, Lauren Blakely, is available now!

It’s the hottest game of one-upmanship I’ve ever played…

 

There are three words most men can’t resist—I dare you.

So as you can see, ladies and gentlemen of the jury, I had no choice when my buddies said “I bet you can’t get that brunette beauty to kiss you before the night ends.”

I proved them wrong, and oh how good it felt to be right when I swept the quick-tongued woman into my arms and kissed the breath out of her at the party.

But, I made a slight miscalculation.

Turns out she’s my brand new enemy.

And soon I’m locked in a fierce battle of wits with my sexy-as-sin nemesis. I’m determined to show the whole city that my company is offering the best new path to romance, and she’s dead-set on knocking me down. Publicly.

It’s the hottest game of one-upmanship I’ve ever played, punctuated by fiery kisses, dirty letters, and, after a heated argument, hate s-e-x.

You know what they say. Keep your enemies closer.

I keep her so damn close to my favorite body part.

Everything is fun and games…until I gamble something I can’t afford to lose.

My heart.
