She hides behind a camera lens. He’s played himself into a corner. Can they outrun the rumor mill and make way for forever?

Hayley Brooke is done with men. So when a sloshed guy at a party makes a sloppy play for her affections, the wedding photographer is relieved when a hunky stranger comes to the rescue. But her gratitude quickly sours when she realizes her savior is the same infamous womanizer she once met on a bad blind date.

Mark Hastings is tired of trying to tough it out. Heralded online as the hottest bachelor on the market, the rugby player’s crippling anxiety steers him well away from the suffocating public spotlight. So saving a familiar pretty face and then being rejected is made a million times worse when pictures light up the internet with salacious gossip.

Horrified to be caught up in the swell of fangirl spite, Hayley demands he set the record straight by being seen with somebody else… only to be bitten by unexpected jealousy. And when they’re forced back together to plan a mutual friend’s engagement bash, they give in to their physical attraction and Mark vows to finally expose his vulnerability.

With social media commenting on their every move, will Hayley ever believe Mark’s love is real?

Just My Type is a heart-fluttering contemporary romance novel. If you like endearing characters, steamy excitement, and breathtaking twists, then you’ll adore Sophia Karlson’s sensual scrum.

What a sweet, slow burn romance. Stings is a bit of a manwhore but while Hayley is a sweet girl who has been in a bad relationship. She feels she’s “not his type” but Stings doesn’t want to take no for an answer. While this story deals with the light romance, it also deals with some serious issues like anxiety and panic attacks. Not anything super steamy here but definitely an entertaining read that leaves you with a smile at the end.

Praise for Just My Type

Mjlovestoread – “Perfect little love story!”

A Discovery of Secrets & Fate by Sawyer Bennett ~ Blog Tour w/ 4 Star Review & Giveaway!

This epic journey continues as the dangers grow, the questions mount, and the attraction builds.

About A Discovery of Secrets and Fate

Life as I knew it ended the day I accepted my fate.

In its place is an existence even the wildest imagination could never fathom. Strange creatures walk among us, plotting our demise, and I’ve come to find that the fate of our world rests squarely on my shoulders. We’re all in danger and I’m trying to figure out how to make it through each day.

The key to my survival is a man I can’t figure out. As dangerous as the darkest fae, I have no choice but to work with him to stop the prophecy that’s foretold to be the ruination of mankind.

Carrick Byrne continues to be my only source of information, but he doles it out as he sees fit. He intrigues and scares me in equal measure, yet I can’t help but be attracted to him. And the more I discover about him, the more it becomes clear he feels the same.

As we travel to Faere in search of answers, we find that every piece of information leads to more questions, that every question leads to a new piece of the puzzle, and that, most importantly, no one can be trusted.

The more secrets we uncover, one thing is certain— if we have any chance of saving the world, we have to do it together.

A Discovery of Secrets and Fate is book two of the Chronicles of the Stone Veil series and is best enjoyed if read in series order.

“How did I, once again, foolishly underestimate my situation?”

This is the second book in the Chronicles of the Stone Veil series and picks up where The Revelation of Light and Dark left off. We are pulled back into a world full of magic, suspense and mystery. A world where light and dark magic coexist. A world where if you were walking by one of the millions of residents on the streets of Seattle you’d never know that behind some of their smiles lies something so dark and sinister but Finley knows. She sees the good and the evil but will her gift help or end up getting her killed?

“I am but a servant of the gods.”

As Finley tries to grapple with what happened to her sister things get a little crazy. I mean it’s not everyday you see your sister turn into a dark fae or learn you’re the key to a prophecy that may just save the world or possibly destroy it. It’s a lot for a girl to take in. She starts to wonder if she should just walk away. We know Carrick has a stake in the game so he has to convince her that she must take her part in the prophecy. In order to do that he needs to earn her trust. Carrick takes Finley on a journey to find more answers but we also get a hell of a lot more questions. I do like the pace the author is using with Carrick and Finley’s relationship. It’s clear they feel a pull towards one another but neither overly acts on it. When Carrick reveals his secrets we start to understand why.

“You live almost five thousand years and come talk to me about how tired you are of everything. How boring the hundreds and hundreds of years passing are in the gods calling on you for something.”

I was extremely curious as to where the author was going to take us with this book. The first book was a ton of information to take in and left me with a million questions and a whole lot of confusion. But as the story continued I was slowly but surely sucked into the amazing and magical world created for us. The pace of this book was about the same as the first…a bit slow. I thought the first book laid the groundwork for the series but it felt like this one did too. So much more information and at points it dragged it a little for me. But it’s a five book series so I am hoping the next book picks up a little. I am excited to see where Finley and Carrick go from here. This one also ends in a cliffhanger and it’s a big one!

“Fear twists my gut even as longing whispers through me. I don’t know if he’s going to kiss me or beat me, but I know which one I’d prefer.”

What a crazy, turbulent ride of emotions. After the back and forth between Danielle and Mike and the crash and burn in book one…this story throws the two back together after an accident lands Mike in the hospital. Lots of drama, people hurt, tension pulling everyone every which way…this story has it all. It was freaking intense! I loved the stable, safe influence of Jason and the journey towards a wiser, healthier Danielle. But…be prepared for angst and tears and not so wise decisions as well. Lots of peaks and valleys from beginning to end. I wasn’t sure how the book was going to end but happily I was smiling when I met the last page. Worth the bumpy ride for an emotionally wrenching story.

Conjugal Visits by Lani Lynn Vale ~ Release Blitz w/ 4 Star Review!

Conjugal Visits
Souls Chapel Revenants MC Book 2
Lani Lynn Vale
Release Date: February 23, 2021

About the Book

Don’t ever, ever, ever go near that boy. Not unless you want to be a single mother at seventeen. That boy is Bad with a capital B.

The words that my father spoke to me when it came to Trouper Aoki didn’t scare me like they probably should.

In fact, they only made me intrigued all the more.

When it came to Troup, there was just no resisting fate when it came to the two of us.

Even at eighteen, when we went our separate ways with the promise to come back to each other once we were done pursuing our careers, I knew he would always be it for me.

And color me surprised when eight years after making that pact with Trouper, we were once again reunited. Only this time in an undercover FBI investigation—me, the FBI officer, and Troup call sign ‘State’ as a military liaison.

Trouble always finds him. You’d do better to run far, far away.

Truer words had never been spoken.

From the time Troup was a young boy, he’d been in some kind of trouble.

So it only goes to show when he winds up in the FBI investigation with none other than Beckham Spurlock, his high school sweetheart, things are bound to go wrong.

Only, he has no idea how wrong until things go bad. Really, really bad.

All it takes is saving her by hurting another for him to see the wrong side of a jail cell.

To make matters worse, he has to live the next fifteen years in prison knowing that his son will grow up without him. And the woman he loves will likely move on to a man that isn’t so much trouble.

The Crush by Penelope Ward ~ Review Tour w/ Two 4 Star Reviews!

Title: The Crush
Author: Penelope Ward
Genre: Standalone Contemporary Romance
Release Date: February 22, 2021

BLURB

From New York Times bestselling author Penelope Ward, comes a new standalone, second-chance story of forbidden love…

It’s natural to want the one you can’t have. And for as long as I could remember, I’d secretly wanted my brother’s best friend, Jace.

He was six years older and always treated me like the sister he never had.

Fast forward a decade.

We were all in our twenties now. Jace had moved in with my brother, Nathan, and me to help us make ends meet after our parents died.

It was just the three of us—an odd family dynamic.

Living under our roof, Jace was as bossy and protective as ever.

But he certainly didn’t look at me like a sister anymore. That was what made things so complicated.

I was pretty much hot and bothered twenty-four-seven.

And he was torn.

The signs were subtle, at first. Like on movie night, I’d casually rest my leg against his, and he wouldn’t exactly shift away.

Still, I assumed he would never…go there.

Nathan would kill us.

The knowledge of that wasn’t enough to stop the inevitable, though.

Eventually our slow burn exploded.

But more than the physical attraction, we’d developed a strong connection.

We just couldn’t get caught, right?

That sounded simple.

Until it wasn’t.

This is a story of forbidden love, broken trust, and an unexpected second chance.

A sweet and emotional little romance. Farrah has had a crush on her brother’s best friend Nathan since she was itty bitty. Now she’s 21 and all grown up…this crush has developed into a bit of an obsession for her when Jace moves in with them. The story has a very slow build with a strong reluctance from Jace to cross the line with Farrah. This book is full of complicated secrets, guilt and a whole lot of angst just waiting to explode. A quick romantic read that was entertaining, funny and sometimes a little maddening.

Awwww!!! This book was definitely a feel good read. I enjoyed the banter and how easy going the story felt. Penelope always does a great job weaving in a little angst to set the hook and this one is no different. The characters were well developed and interesting. If you’re looking for something pretty chill with some spice this is definitely it.
