May I scream now? I didn’t know this was a series. This ends in a cliffhanger. I NEED MORE NOW! This is a crazy mixed-up mess between Nick Hudson and Lyriope Bailey. Lyriope is the bastard child of Bryant Morelli. She sold her soul to the bad guys and Nick had to help her out of a bad situation. But unfortunately, it just put Lyriope in a darker situation. She has now sold her soul to Nick Hudson. That could possibly be more dangerous than the Russians she first was in debt to. Nick takes her in not once pretending to be a knight in shining armor. He makes a deal with her. He takes her virginity for her freedom. The only problem is he has no intentions of letting her go. While life gets a little hectic, Lyriope finds a way to get away. Who will get her next? Will it be the Morellis, the Russians or the Constantines? Or will it be Nick Hudson? No matter who it is…none of them will be a good thing. I need to know what happens next.

An NFL quarterback turned small-town coach gets sacked by a Texas beauty queen in this swoony, passionate romance from Wall Street Journal bestselling author Ilsa Madden-Mills.

Gorgeous, talented, and brilliant, NFL quarterback Ronan Smith has the world in his hands. But after losing his career and his fiancée in a car accident, he falls into a pit of grief and bad choices.

I liked this second chance sports romance. Fate brings Nova and Ronan back together after a one night stand a few years later. There are some emotional issues but I loved the chemistry between the two. Lots of steamy scenes to keep me addicted to the pages. I definitely found it entertaining. The secondary characters were great and hope we get more books in the future. The story was a bit predictable and insta love but sometimes I’m in the mood for just that. A nice, easy summer beach read with enough angst to keep you glued to the story.

Definitely was happy to get the ending of the Terrible Triplet’s story. I loved how feelings evolved and Landry and Della wormed their way into Scout, Sparrow and Sully’s hearts. These characters wormed their way into my heart and I really had a hard time setting the book down. For me, the ending of this dark romance was more navigating the emotions than a lot of action and intrigue. I liked the intense situations at the end but wish I’d had more suspense and crazy twists towards the middle. But still have mad love for the triplets and their bond with Della and the way Landry stood up for them. My soul sings when the characters are willing to sacrifice anything to protect one another…so this story resonated with me so much. Wonderful addition to the Midnight Dynasty!

Start the duet with TRIPLE THREAT, book 1!!!

Title: Crazy, Wicked Love
Author: Melissa Foster
Genre: Contemporary Romance

About Crazy, Wicked Love

Scorching heat, laugh-out-loud humor, and swoon-worthy moments abound in this sexy new standalone romance by New York Times and Wall Street Journal bestselling author Melissa Foster.

What happens when the player gets played?

Sidney Carver has a big problem, and he goes by the name of Dwayne “Gunner” Wicked: six-plus feet of muscular, motorcycle-riding, animal-loving deliciousness. Gunner is her boss, roommate, and best friend. They’ve seen each other through life-altering injuries and unimaginable losses, and they work side by side at Wicked Animal Rescue, fulfilling their passion to save animals. Unfortunately, Gunner is also the man Sidney is in love with, and he’s the ultimate player. As her former military comrade, Gunner sees her as his buddy—just one of the guys. Sidney is at her wit’s end, ready to risk the friendship and job she adores for a chance at forever love with the man she can’t live without. Like any good marine, she comes up with a mission. Enter Operation Get My Guy.

Gunner loves his life. He has a family he adores, a brotherhood that always has his back, and a host of willing women to warm his bed. As the owner of Wicked Animal Rescue, he saves lives and works with his best friend, Sid, the coolest woman on the planet. When Sid concocts a crazy plan to win his cousin’s heart, Gunner reluctantly agrees to be her wingman and comes up with a plan of his own.

Practices heat up as roommates become teammates. Let the wicked fun begin…

No cheating. No cliffhangers. Guaranteed to melt panties and leave readers hopelessly in love with the sinfully delicious Wickeds.

About The Wickeds: Dark Knights at Bayside

Set on the sandy shores of Cape Cod, the Wickeds feature fiercely protective heroes, strong heroines, and unbreakable family bonds. If you think bikers are all the same, you haven’t met the Dark Knights. The Dark Knights are a motorcycle club, not a gang. Their members stick together like family and will stop at nothing to keep their communities safe. These men are wickedly alpha and intensely loyal, but they are NOT alphaholes.

Gunner and Sidney have been through tons together. They were in the military and bonded over many years serving. Sidney gets hurt and returns home. Gunner soon follows and opens a pet rescue that Sidney helps him run now. Not only do they work together but live together as well. This setup to the storyline had me scratching my head for a minute and doubting this plotline, but it worked itself out!

Gunner had friend zoned Sidney when they were in the military. He is a playboy and does not want to settle down. Ever. Sidney, however, may have been friend zoned but never thought of Gunner as “just a friend”. But to keep his friendship she never told him how she truly felt. She decides to come up with a plan to make him notice her. She tells him that she has a crush on his playboy cousin and needs his advice on how to get his attention.

Gunner realizes there is a possibility of losing her to his cousin. His revelation moments are cute and funny and make for some comical scenes. Watching these two dance around each other and turn their friendship into more was tons of fun to watch. There were some steamy scenes but definitely could have used some more! Very entertaining to read.

Exclusive Excerpt

SIDNEY CARVER HAD a big problem.

She sat at the kitchen table in her underwear and T-shirt early Sunday morning, pondering her situation. It wasn’t like she’d planned on falling in love with her best friend, who also happened to be her roommate and her boss for the last three years. She swirled a waffle finger in the pool of chocolate syrup on her plate, staring absently, as if a solution might magically appear there.

If only…

Short of leaving Cape Cod and the dog rescue she adored, her father and friends, and the only man she’d ever loved, she saw no reasonable way out of the situation. It was too bad holding a gun to his head and forcing him to love her back would land her in jail, because that sounded easier than walking away. She had been attracted to Gunner since they’d first met, but her feelings had deepened over the years, and lately those feelings had gotten too big to deny.

This was one of the few times in her life that she wished she had a mother to talk to. She’d been raised by an amazing father who had been only twenty when she was born, and he had taught her all about life, loyalty, and bravery. She could face a battlefield head-on, shoot a gun with expert precision, train dogs to save people’s lives, and nurture them back to health when they were injured. But winning her bestie’s heart was foreign territory, and she’d never been schooled in flirting or using her feminine wiles. She was more of a love me as I am or leave me girl, and she knew Gunner loved her as a friend just as she was, but way deep down, she also knew they could be so much more if he’d only let himself see her in that light.

She heard a door open upstairs and froze, her pulse quickening as said problem’s heavy footsteps sounded above her, followed by the scampering of his rescue dogs, Granger, Belleau, and Opha Mae. The farmhouse stairs creaked beneath his weight, reminding her of the woman Sidney had heard leaving his room around two in the morning and causing a resurgence of the jealousy that had been driving her nuts lately. She needed to either figure out how to win him over without risking their friendship or get over him altogether, because watching a trail of women do the walk of shame from his bedroom wasn’t on her to-do list.

Why did she have to fall for a player?

Bond of Destiny by Tessa Hale ~ Blog Tour w/ 4 Star Review!

Bond of Destiny, the stunning conclusion to the must-read reverse harem Shifting Fate Trilogy from Tessa Hale is available now!

Just when Rowan thought things might be coming together. When she dared to hope things might work out. The world around her crumbled.

Betrayed by her own pack. Held captive by someone she should’ve been able to trust above all others. And time is running out.

Her only hope is her mates. Holden, Anson, Lucas, Keene, and Vaughn won’t stop fighting. For Rowan and for their bond.

But just when they thought there might be a way out, everything is turned upside down yet again.

Because the person who’s after Rowan? He’ll stop at nothing until all of her powers are his. And if he can’t have them, no one will…

**The final book in a continuing three-book series. A reverse harem, why choose romance. Think fated mates, a heroine who has no idea just how special she is, broody, swoony, crazy protective heroes, and a story that will keep you on the edge of your seat.**

Bond of Destiny is the final book in the Shifting Fates series and picks up right where Mark of Stars left off. Rowan has been taken and her five mates will tear to shreds anyone that stands in their way in order to find her and bring her home to the pack where she belongs.

“You have a chance to rule alongside me. To have a bond truly worthy of your power.”

It seems around every corner there is someone outside the pack looking to use Rowan’s incredible power to do evil or destroy her all together. Luckily for her she has five true alpha mates who if it’s up to them won’t leave her side ever. I loved the growth in this book between not only Rowan and her mates but also Rowan herself. She truly finds herself in this book. Her power becomes her own and she will do anything to protect those she loves.

“We came apart together, with the knowledge we were forever bound.”

Tons of action, great characters and some scorching hot scenes with Rowan and her mates. I also really liked how we got to see a little more of how each of her mates feels. The battle within themselves to protect Rowan and even a slight bit of jealousy. Vaughn really stepped up too. I loved when all six of them just finally bonded and became one. I thought I knew who was my favorite, but now I just can’t choose. I really enjoyed this series but I will say I really liked the first two books a bit better and the first half of this one. I struggled a little with the second half. To me, there was so much leading up to the big battle and so much time, preparation, planning etc. I feel like those chapters were too rushed and the actual fight scene was sadly anticlimactic. I did however love so many other things about this series and my favorite was Rowan and her mates.

“Lucas. Keene. Anson. Vaughn. Holden. My heart ached as I held their names in my mind.”
