This was an amazing story of a strong powerful woman by the name of Violet Luna. She worked her way up into powerful positions in her job. A job that was prominently driven by men. She had an event to go to and she didn’t want to go alone, so she contacted an agency for a “Gentleman Escort”. Gabriel De Graff was a beautiful “ex-model” and did his job amazingly well. He was a true “gentleman” and said he would never have sex while he was on the clock. He doesn’t sell sex. He is just a companion. Well, thing change and life gets complicated. Emotions get involved and don’t get me wrong…sex happened, just not during the hours of when she hired him for.

This author did an amazing job at sucking you in and making you feel like you knew these people personally. She dragged you into their life, and you couldn’t put the book down until you knew what was happening next. I loved all the twist and turns in this story. How it made a woman “somewhat” in control of her life…emotionally and sexually. I do not believe I have ever read a book by this author before, but I will definitely read more. Love her writing style.

Things I Wanted to Say (But Never Did) by Monica Murphy ~ Release Blitz w/ 5 Star Review!

Things I Wanted To Say (But Never Did) by Monica Murphy is now live!

Whit Lancaster burst into my life like a storm. Dark and thunderous, furious and fierce. Cold, heartless and devastatingly beautiful, like the statues in our prep school gardens. The school with his family name on the sign. He can do no wrong here. This is his domain.

He’s a menace on campus.  Adored and feared. Hated and respected. His taunting words carve into my skin, shredding me to ribbons. Yet his intense gaze scorches my blood, fills me with a longing I don’t understand.

When I stumble upon him one night alone, I find him broken. Bleeding. My instincts scream to leave and let him suffer, but I can’t. I sneak him into my room. Clean him up. Fall for his lies. Let him possess every single part of me until I’m the one left a gasping, broken mess.

When he leaves me alone in the dead of night, he takes my journal with him.

Now he knows all my secrets. My hate. My truth. And he promises to use my words against me. I’ll be ruined if my darkest secret gets out.

That’s when I strike a bargain with the devil.

I’ll let Whit Lancaster ruin me behind closed doors instead.

This. Fucking. Book! I devoured this beast of a badass book. Could not get enough of Whit and Summer. This one starts off cruel and wicked and ends so damn awesome it’s not even funny. Whit is a major frikin’ asshole and I love him. I mean…damn! Alpha. Ornery. Spiteful. Mean. Brutal. Gorgeous. And the most shocking part that stole my heart…the man is appreciative! He knows what he has and he’s going to keep it. Hell or high water. Love him!

Summer is a queen, y’all! This girl has been through hell and back and she has the lady balls to stand up for herself. She’s fierce. She knows what she likes and is okay with taking it. She knows when it’s okay to walk away and when to fight. Love her so much.

This one is my favorite book of the year so far. I seriously could not get enough and I am so sad it’s over. A little bully, enemies to lovers and I was gone for it. Do not miss out!

Love, Ally by Hannah Gray ~ Release Blitz w/ 4.5 Star Review!

𝐿𝑜𝓋𝑒, 𝒜𝓁𝓁𝓎 by Hannah Gray is LIVE!  This is a second chance, college sports romance full of heat, heart, and an amazing HEA!

Blurb

The world never granted me much. No warm and cozy home to rest my head, no loving parents to cheer at my games or remember my birthday, and certainly no finer things in life. Just a damn good arm to throw a football and a hunger inside of me that I hoped would lead me straight to the NFL.

I was twelve years old when the universe finally delivered its first gift. A beautiful angel, though my angel certainly wore no halo. She dressed in the same tattered clothes that I did, and her eyes were as lost and broken as mine were.

All it took was one look at her face, and I knew she had been made for me and me alone. From that day forward, my soul was hooked, taken, a slave to hers. Nothing could come between us. I was headed to college and then pro ball, and she would be by my side, where she belonged.

Until one day, she disappeared without a word.

The love of my life, my best friend, was suddenly gone, vanished, evaporated into thin air. Almost as if she were never even here.

Now, over a year later, at Brooks College in Georgia, she’s back. I want vengeance for her leaving me so callously. But one look into her stormy-blue eyes, and I’m enamored yet again.

But she’s keeping secrets. Pushing me away so that they remain buried in the past. She’s forgetting one thing though—when it comes to her, I’ll stop at nothing.

She can’t keep me at arm’s length forever. After all, she is mine.

*This is a complete stand alone in the Brooks University series. A Second Chance Sports Romance.

Ally and Cole met when they were twelve in a foster home. From that young age, these two were bound by some unseen force. Some may say soulmate…others may say twin flame. It was like two pieces of a puzzle that fit perfectly. Naturally that friendship turned into something more once they got older. Plans were made about the future and no matter what had happened to them in the system, they were moving forward with their lives. Cole was an elite football player with NFL stars in his eyes and Ally had the voice of an angel and aspired to sing or write music. But wherever their talents led them, they planned to do it together.

Ally finds herself between a rock and a hard place in their senior year and ready to move on to college. Only she can’t say a word about it to Cole. It could jeopardize his future in the NFL. So she must make a decision that will leave Cole rocked to his core. She disappears and makes it impossible for him to find her while he is away for football camp. Needless to say, he is heartbroken and irate to find her gone. He takes that anger and puts it all into football the next year of his life trying to move on without her.

When Ally finds herself at a college that she never thought twice about, she has a very hard go of it. But both she and Cole are shocked to see each other on the same campus. Cole is angry and wants answers. Ally feels horrible. But neither of their feelings for each other have changed. Can these two soulmates find a way to come together again or has too much changed?

This was a great, fast read. It didn’t drag on and on…it got right to the point. Their connection was definitely palpable and you felt all of their emotions. I highly recommend this fast paced, second chance love story.

About Hannah Gray

Hannah Gray spends her days in vacationland, living in a small, quaint town on the coast of Maine. She is an avid reader of contemporary romance and is always in competition with herself to read more books every year.

During the day, she loves on her three perfect-to-her daughters and tries to be the best mom she can be. But once she tucks them in at night–okay, scratch that. Once they fall asleep next to her in her bed–because their bedrooms apparently have monsters in them–she dives into her own fantasy world, staying awake well into the late-night hours, typing away stories about her characters. As much as she loves being a wife and mom–and she certainly does love it–reading and writing are her outlet, giving her a place to travel far away while still physically being with her family.

She married her better half in 2013, and he’s been putting up with her craziness every day since. As her anchor, he’s her one constant in this insane, forever-changing world.

No Rep by Lani Lynn Vale ~ Release Blitz w/ 4.5 Star Review!

No Rep
Madd Crossfit Series 1
July 27, 2021

About the Book

Taos was tired.

Tired of everything that came with living. Not to the point where he was suicidal or anything, but tired enough that he just didn’t give a crap anymore.

He’d seen all the ugliness this world had to offer due to his job as a police officer for way too many damn years of his less than stellar life. After finding a way to sustain his spending habits that didn’t include having criminals point guns at his face, he quits without a backward glance.

Only, he just can’t step away from old habits.

Old habits that have to do with a beautiful young woman that makes his heart feel like it isn’t nearly as broken as it is.

Fran has experienced more than her fair share of crap. After an attack that nearly took her life, she stays hidden in her house, fearful that stepping out of her comfort zone will be the final nail in her coffin.

Then her sister forces her to face her fears, and she joins Madd CrossFit.

There, she meets the man that saved her life a year ago, and realizes rather quickly that he doesn’t even realize who he is to her.

He’s everything she ever thought a man should be and wants nothing to do with her.

Maybe she’ll have to give him a reason to look her way.

And damned if she doesn’t find a way to do it.

She didn’t plan on nearly getting killed for that to happen, though.

At least not again.

Gahhh! This book was awesome. I love how the characters at first resisted at all costs and then built on top of the friend foundation. It made their bond stronger for sure. I fell for them instantly and this story was so different and unique. Lani as usually does a great job with the opening hook of the story and doesn’t let you go until the end. I just wished there was more. I felt like the end was a little quick. Other than that the book was great. Steamy and intense. I mean…it’s kinda hard to not be intense with a serial killer on the loose. The suspense was awesome!

This book was ok for me. It was a take on the forbidden older brother’s best friend genre. Harley is a muay thai fighter who has been living in Thailand for years. She’s recently returned home to stay with her UFC champion brother Seth after a devastating end to her relationship. Her brother owns a gym and she starts to train their with him. Naturally, all the guys in the gym have the bro-code that no one is to hit on or go near Seth’s little sister.

But hot, up and coming start Devon must not get the memo and doesn’t care. He and Harley are attracted to each other immediately and are constantly being thrown together. Once they start having feelings for each other it’s the “I want you but we really shouldn’t” type scenario. There is the usual sneaking around so Seth won’t find out.

This wasn’t super exciting to me for some reason. I didn’t feel the connection between Devon and Harley which kept me from fully engaging. You might find this story completely different and really enjoy it. In fact, I hope you do.

EXCERPT

“So,” Devon continues, rubbing circles on his chest. “This is the part where I ask you out again, yeah?”

I sigh. “If it was, I’d have to turn you down.” Strangely, I find myself regretting that fact, and not just because my body is still wired with attraction to him. He actually seems like a nice guy, but officially off-limits, and not the right match for me anyway.

“Damn.” His lips quirk, but he doesn’t seem upset at all. “Have you decided whether you want me to back off and stop flirting with you?”

My breath quickens. Why does he have to keep asking that and putting the responsibility on me to reject him? Why can’t he be like any other douchey guy who’d ignore what I want and flirt anyway? Because while I can’t date him, I enjoy exchanging hot looks across the gym floor and I don’t want it to end.

“No, I haven’t,” I say, something fizzing in my chest. “I need more time to think about it.”

“Okay, then.” He grins crookedly. “Can I ask what’s holding you back?”

I drag a hand down my face and battle to pull myself together. Dare I be honest with him? I moisten my lips. “The thing is, I’ve recently gone through something that makes it hard for me to trust people, and I’m not denying that I’m attracted to you, but you seem like a good-time guy and that’s not what I’m looking for.”

He cocks his head, the humor fleeing his expression, and his eyes become uncharacteristically serious. “I could be more than a good-time guy for you, Harley.”

A lick of heat runs down my spine. His gaze is so intense. So honest. But from what I’ve seen of him, I’m not sure whether to believe him. The fact is, I hardly know Devon. I knew Thaklaew much better, and I still didn’t see his betrayal coming. Why should I think I’m any better at reading this guy?

“Think on it.” He touches his glove to mine. “Ready for round two?”
