Release Date: October 17th
Genre: Contemporary Romance


Maverick, an all-new contemporary STANDALONE by New York Times Bestselling author Karina Halle is LIVE!!!

Maverick is a complete standalone novel and the second book about the rough and rugged Nelson brothers. Get ready for one wild alpha mountain man – Canada’s never felt so hot!

Forget playing it safe.

John “Maverick” Nelson likes to live his life on the edge – literally. A crucial member of the search and rescue team in the mountainous British Columbian town of North Ridge, Maverick’s brash and bold attitude means he’s the first one to ascend into danger, no matter the risk.

When it comes to women, though, Maverick errs on the side of caution. For all his cocky charm, rugged good looks and sexual swagger, he remains as unreachable as the surrounding peaks. Hot, wild sex? He’ll tell you there’s no better way to spend a cold, wintry night. Relationships? He’d rather freeze.

That is until he lays his eyes on American Riley Clarke. Trading in the crippling expenses of Aspen for BC, Riley is North Ridge’s newest member of their search and rescue team and the only woman on the job, which means spending a lot of time with Mav in adrenaline-pumping situations.

With the chemistry between them hot enough to melt snow, keeping their hands off each other is detriment to the success of their team. Besides, Maverick’s her boss and she didn’t work her ass off in Colorado just to throw it all away for some mind-blowing sex.

But when the worst winter in years sweeps in, Riley and Maverick will have to battle the elements along with their attraction for each other. And if either of them slip up, both of them will be in for a deep freeze.

eKindle Review by: Jen

This book blew me away. Honestly I knew I was going to enjoy the read, as I love everything that Karina Halle writes but this book dug itself right into my heart. I finished this book in 2 days and am already trying to find free time to go back and read it again. Maverick gives us the story of John “Maverick” Nelson , who we were introduced to in Shane and Rachel’s story Wild Card and Riley Clarke. Riley makes a move up to North Ridge, as she is looking to over fresh after an incident at work shook her to the core. Thinking that this place is a new beginning and a fresh start Riley is ready to see what challenges arise on her search and rescue job. What she didn’t expect was for her boss to be the “town manwhore” and the undeniably, unattainably handsome Maverick who she just can’t help but be drawn to. Maverick has finally made it as leader of the team and will not let anything stand in his way until the gorgeous Riley shows up to work. Maverick is instantly drawn to Riley – her beauty, charm, smarts, and charisma sends his world spinning. Although they both aware of the fraternization policy at work and try to keep their distance, it seems like fate has other things in mind for Maverick and Riley. Is it worth risking their careers for a potential few nights of a good time? Or will these few fun nights lead them onto a path neither one expected but that neither one can deny?

I loved this story so much!! This story captivated me from the very first chapter and I was finding any snippets of time to sneak in some reading. The sex scenes were HOT—like burning the sheets hot! Holy smokes!!!! The chemistry, not only sexually, between Mav and Riley was undeniable! They totally seem like the perfect fit and complimented each other so well. I loved their story as I did Shane and Rachel’s and I am soooo anxious to read about Fox and Del next!!! Pick up this book-you don’t want to miss out on an fantastic 5 star read!!!

Ruthless King by Meghan March ~ Blog Tour w/ Reviews

Get ready for the darker and dirtier side of New Orleans with a brand new alpha romance from USA Today bestselling author Meghan March.

New Orleans belongs to me.
You don’t know my name, but I control everything you see—and all the things you don’t.
My reach knows no bounds, and my demands are always met.
I didn’t need to loan money to a failing family distillery, but it amuses me to have them in my debt.
To have her in my debt.
She doesn’t know she caught my attention.
She should’ve been more careful.
I’m going to own her. Consume her. Maybe even keep her.
It’s time to collect what I’m owed.
Keira Kilgore, you’re now the property of Lachlan Mount.

Lachlan Mount is the man in the shadows. He runs New Orleans but no one speaks his name. You don’t want him to know who you are. But Keira has caught his attention. Well, her husband had his attention as well as owed him a debt. When Lachlan comes collecting for half a million dollars, Keira is told she must pay or her family and friends will be in jeopardy. When Lachlan gives her the option to be owned by him to work off her debt, Keira has no other choice. Will these two be able to make this arrangement work or will Keira try for another solution?

“My body in exchange for my pride. That’s the deal I’ve struck.

I hate Lachlan Mount.

Even his name sends bolts of heat through me, spawned from wrath unlike anything I’ve ever experienced.

I hate how he makes me feel.

I hate that my body responds to him.

…the voice in my head whispers one more truth.

I hate that I want him to touch me again.

I’m trying to think of how I feel about Keira, Mount and this strange arrangement they embark upon. I guess I’m throwing myself into Keira’s shoes and I’m mostly confused! I loved how domineering Lachlan could be and he’s definitely a man of mystery. The heat between Mount and Keira bounces back and forth between hatred and desire. Although Keira doesn’t like the idea of being told what to do, she definitely likes certain things Lachlan does to her at times. Bow chicka wow wow. Both of these two are stubborn and neither wants to give in. Because Lachlan never has to. He is definitely in charge even if Keira has not accepted it. I need to know what’s in the works! What’s next? Can Mount tame Keira’s fiery nature? How far is he willing to go?

This is a trilogy so we have two more books before we have Keira and Lachlan’s full story. I love books that continue on with the same characters and this one is definitely no exception. Especially with some of my favorite people from the Beneath series peeping in. Keep peeping! I LOVE YOU GUYS!

Ruthless King by Meghan March has been on my radar since she first started talking about the story that kept her up all hours of the night and this Mount character that refused to be silence until his full story was told. The moment this bad boy appeared on my kindle I jumped in and forgot about life. Ruthless King gives us the first part of Lachlan Mount’s and Keira’s story. I am extremely excited to see where the second installment takes us and how the final installment concludes their story. Mount is notorious throughout all of New Orleans – some knew of him while everyone feared him. You know the saying “things that go bump in the night” well I feel like Mount is the guy behind that saying — he makes things go bump in the night—it’s his way or …there is no other way really! Mount comes looking for Keira as she is the payment he is coming to collect on. Although she had no knowledge of what her late husband did, promised or bargained behind her back- she is now the center piece in the Mount’s chess game. Whatever Lachlan Mount wants he gets and he has his eyes set solely on Keira.

Throughout the entire story there is definitely a power struggle between Mount and Keira – Keira is one feisty lady who refuses to back down or show any sign of weakness. She stands up for herself and what she wants even if it means going toe to toe with the infamous Mount. The challenge that Keira gives Mount is like a drug for Mount – he has never been challenged liked this before and wants more and more of her. Despite the epic power struggle between the two the chemistry they have is undeniable. Mount has tapped into a part of Keira’s sexuality that she had an idea existed but no clue how deep and strong it was in her. He uses this to his advantage and Keira can’t help resist the powerful sexual chemistry/ connection they both have with one another. The chemistry and sexual tension between the two is HOT!!!

I feel like the best way to describe the story without giving away any spoilers, because really you don’t want this book ruined for yourself, is that it reminds me of being on a roller coaster as it slowly progresses up a hill. As it slowly approaches the top you are left in your seat feeling all kinds of feels — anticipation, adrenaline, nerves and that moment of “ohhhhhhhhhh ssssshhh@(!*” that is what this book is like. It gives you all these feels and then gives you a bit of a book hangover while you champ at the bit for the second part of this story! Meghan I am very anxious and excited to see where you take us on this adventure and can’t wait to buckle up and enjoy the ride of Mount and Keira.

*5 Star* Blog Tour- dear bridget, I WANT YOU by Penelope Wart and Vi Keeland





Amazon iBooks |  B&N |  Kobo  | Google Play  |  Amazon paperback


Dear Bridget,

I’m writing this letter because it’s highly doubtful I’ll ever garner the courage to say this to your face.

So, here goes.

We’re totally wrong for each other. You’re the proper single mum with a good head on your shoulders. I’m just the carefree British doctor passing through town and temporarily living in your converted garage until I head back to England.

But here’s the thing… for some bloody reason, I can’t stop thinking about you in very inappropriate ways.

I want you.

The only reason I’m even admitting all of this to you right now is because I don’t believe it’s one-sided. I notice your eyes when you look at me, too. And as crass as I appear when we’re joking around about sex, my attraction to you is not a joke.

So, what’s the purpose of this note? I guess it’s a reminder that we’re adults, that sex is healthy and natural, and that you can find me just through the door past the kitchen. More specifically, it’s to let you know that I’m leaving said door cracked open from now on in case you’d like to visit me in the middle of the night sometime.

No questions asked.

Think about it.

Or don’t.

Whatever you choose.

It’s doubtful I’ll even end up sliding this letter under your door anyway.

eKindle Review by: Jen

Where to start? Seriously, where do I even start with this review of dear bridget, I WANT YOU. How about Dear Penelope and Vi, I F@(#*$NG LOVE YOU!!!!! By far one of the best books I have read this year and of course will be doing a reread of it! But let me start at the cover- holy mother of covers! I not only wanted to read this book ASAP I wanted to lick it as well (I have no shame)! Along with a banging cover the blurb makes you want to immediately stop what you are doing (even if you are cooking and you risk the chance of your house burning down) and start reading! I was so excited to be provided with an ARC copy of this book and the moment it appeared on my kindle it was goodbye reality hello world that Penelope and Vi has created!

Dear bridget, I WANT YOU brings us the story of Bridget and Simon. The way they meet one another for the first time is by far the BEST introduction of characters I have EVER read! I absolutely loved it and the best thing is that from the very first chapter the story only got better and better. I want to gush and gush about this book but I don’t want to give anything of the story away as I hope you, the reader, enjoys it as much as I did. So Bridget and Simon both work in the same medical field however the circumstances that bring them together are extremely unique. When what was assumed to be a one-time meeting turns into Simon ending up renting the in-law apartment at Bridget’s house- things take a turn and the chemistry between these two gets turned up! Seriously just writing about this book and thinking about it has me wanting to pick up my kindle again and do a reread right now! This book had me laughing, begging for more, panting from the hot scenes, and honestly believing that love can find you when you least expect it or want it. I seriously cannot sing the praises of this book enough!!

Do yourself and your mother, brother, friend and sister a favor and read this book! This is a 5 STAR BOOK! You do not want to miss out on the amazing story that Penelope and Vi has given us.

Blog Tour- Havoc by Alexis Noelle

Title: Havoc
Series: Deathstalkers MC #7
Author: Alexis Noelle
Genre: MC Romance
Release Date: August 21, 2017



“Great story and I am very pleased I offered to read and review it based on how much I had enjoyed all the others, very worth reading.” – Review from Wendy Hodges


“Havoc was a good book, packed full of drama and action.” – Cat’s Guilty Pleasures


“I loved how this story unfolded and developed, the relationship between Rock and Chrissy was fun and the dramatic ending was an “edge of your seat” read.” – Readers World Book Haven


As a social worker, I’ve seen my fair share of broken families, bad relationships, and worlds of regret.
Because of that the last thing, I’ll ever do is let down my guard, or open up my heart.
As for men, bring ’em on.
I love a good man in my bed, but I’m not looking for forever or happily ever after. 
That’s not my style.
Please me, and leave. 
These are my rules. 
There’s no bending or breaking them. 
Even when he pulls out all the stops,
I’m not budging.
They’re set in stone.
Or should I say, “Rock?”

I’m chiseling away at that hard exterior, one pebble at a time.
I don’t negotiate, I don’t share, and 
I sure as hell don’t wait my turn.
Despite her smart mouth and fiery ways,
I still want her. 
But this “friends with benefits” deal of hers is bullshit.
I don’t play that way.
At least, I don’t plan to anymore.
I will own every ounce of her.
That body.
That mind.
That heart.
It will all be mine.

When I read the blurb for Havoc by Alexis Noelle it immediately caught my interest and I knew I had to read this book. Havoc gives us the story of Rock and Chrissy. Chrissy is your no nonsense woman who knows what she wants when she wants it. She is not afraid to speak her mind or put her man in his place. Rock, a bad boy leather wearing MC stud, cannot get enough of Chrissy. Her attitude and bite doesn’t drive him away if anything it makes him want her more.  What started out as a one night stand developed into a sort of friends with benefit relationship until Rock decides that he claiming this woman even if she doesn’t want it. As Rock and Chrissy work on their relationship both of their jobs takes them into dangerous situations that potentially could hurt one of them. Will Rock and Chrissy be able to get their relationship on track while staying safe or will the outside threats of their jobs cause their relationships and lives to potentially end?

As I read the first few pages of this book I had such high hopes for this story and was excited to see what the author had in store for us. As the story continued to develop and unroll I found that parts of it felt very rushed. I found myself wanting the story to like pump the breaks a bit so I could learn more about what excited was going on. It just felt that there were parts missing that would have tied and held the story together tighter. Other than that the characters and story line was great! This book is fast paced and does not let up so buckle and get ready to get lost in Havoc.

Alexis Noelle lives in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania with her husband, and three kids. On top a writing career, she is a full-time student and a full-time mom. She loves spending time with her kids, although she has to hide the computer from them when she is writing! She love being active and being outdoors, especially if it involves any kind of shopping.

She has always been passionate about writing. She loves to read romance books and feels like being able to lose yourself in a book is one of the more exciting aspects. The books she loves to read and write will be ones that make you feel for the characters. Ashley believes that you should have an opinion on every character in a book whether you love them, hate them, or think they are up to something.She also believes that the most important critic is your reader, so she loves to hear from the readers. She want her fans to be open & talk to her about what they want for the characters in the story, and what they would like to see happen.

New York Times bestselling author Kristen Proby delivers another sizzling novel in her delectable and sexy Fusion series.

Riley Gibson is over the moon at the prospect of having her restaurant, Seduction, on the Best Bites TV network. This could be the big break she’s been waiting for. But the idea of having an in-house show on a regular basis is a whole other matter. Their lives would be turned upside down, and convincing Mia, her best friend and head chef of Seduction, that having cameras in her kitchen every day is a good idea is daunting. Still, Riley knows it’s an opportunity she can’t afford to pass on. And when she meets Trevor Cooper, the show’s executive producer, she’s stunned by their intense chemistry.

Trevor’s sole intention is to persuade Riley to allow Best Bites TV to do a show on her restaurant. But when he walks into Riley’s office, he stops dead in his tracks. The professional, aloof woman on the phone is incredibly beautiful and funny. But can he convince her that he’s interested in Riley for himself? Or is he using the undeniable pull between them to persuade her to agree to his offer?

eKindle Review by: Jen

The Beauty of Us by Kristen Proby is the 4th book in the fusion series. To say I feel in love with this series in an understatement! This series takes us on an adventure as these fun loving best friends navigate their way of owning successful restaurant business and eventually falling in love. I seriously want to jump in these books and become part of their world- luckily for us Kirsten allows us to do just that! Although each book can be read as a standalone it is truly better to read them all in order so you get a better understanding of each character.

The Beauty of Us gives us the story of Riley and Trevor. Trevor has been burned in the past from his ex-wife but doesn’t let that negativity bring him down in life while Riley hasn’t had the best of luck when it comes to dating. As fate would have it, it takes a simple vent session to her friends about her latest online match up that Riley fails to recognize the guy who just so happens to be sitting at the bar-Trevor the man in charge of the filming that is happening at the restaurant. Trevor can’t help but overhear Riley and offers up a bit of advice-stop the online dating and let him take her out to show her how a real date should go. Although they are technically colleagues Riley decides to give a go. The chemistry between the two of them is off the charts. I couldn’t help falling in love with Trevor! He is funny, hot, sensitive… pretty much everything you want in a boyfriend! I love how authentic both Riley and Trevor are and how their relationship just flowed so well. As with all relationships the good times happen as do the bad times but it’s how we deal with those bad times that either make or break us. I love how genuine both Riley and Trevor were when trying to make it through the bad times. If you are looking for a read that will make you and your heart happy this is the book!

As always I look forward to the next book that Kristen gives us as I love getting lost in her stories!!

The Wright Mistake By K.A Linda~ 5 Star Review




A new stand alone enemies-to-lovers romance by USA Today bestselling author K.A. Linde…

I spent six weeks screwing Austin Wright’s brains out and all I got was this broken heart.

He can’t be trusted. Not with my body or my heart. Yet, two years have passed and I still crave him like an addict needing a fix.

The last time we tried this, it nearly ruined me. I know I should run and never look back. But his dark haunted eyes and razor blade smile speak to my soul. His touch sets my body on fire. And we all know what happens when you light gasoline. Someone is bound to get burned.

A second chance might destroy us both.

Because everyone knows two wrongs don’t make a Wright.

I am such a huge fan of K.A.Linde so of course the moment this book appeared on my kindle I jumped right in to start reading. Seriously, I even called my boss telling them I was running late from traffic just so I could at least get one chapter in before I headed into work. I have been such a fan of this series since the first book (each can be read as a standalone) and each book being about one of the siblings that you can’t help but fall in love with keeps me on my toes and my heart happy.

The Wright Mistake takes us on the roller coaster journey of Austin and Julia and seriously- it is quite a journey. It is no surprise, as it has been talked about in the previous books, that Austin likes to have a few drinks. Well, maybe saying a few drinks is putting it lightly when in reality Austin has a drinking problem. (Even before jumping into this book I knew we would be dealing with some heavy topics and I love that K.A.Linde did not hold back.) So Julia and Austin previously dated and their chemistry was undeniable/off the charts however it didn’t last long and their relationship ended in a bitter breakup. As fate would have it- what was supposed to be a fun weekend away for Julia, she ends up being a stuck in a house with Austin and his entire family. Although not in a relationship anymore Austin isn’t opposed to trying to rekindle what him and Julia had in the bedroom however Julia is not on board with that… in the beginning. However as their journey unfolds Austin soon realizes that his carefree lifestyle does not come without consequences. In what he assumed was something that would be rightfully handed to him he soon starts to understand the severity of how his choosen lifestyle affects every aspect of his life. While Julia and Austin attempt to give their relationship ago again Julia’s past comes knocking back while Austin tries his hardest to kick his dependency. Unfortunately life does not always go the way we want it to and it can deal us cards we are not equipped to handle. Will Julia be able to forge ahead despite the past and will Austin be able to overcome his strong addictions so they both can find happiness together? Seriously pick up this book to find out and buckle up!

From the very beginning of this book to the last page I was so wrapped up in this story that it was all I can think about. K. A. Linde did such a great job at discussing such a hard topic. She made is as realistic as it is and was very truthful in how it affects not only the person but the people around them. I loved Julia and Austin as a couple- they were not perfect people but who in real life is? They felt real- their struggles, successes, everything was just real! Despite the fact that this book was about them, the side stories in the book gripped my heart just as much and I cannot wait for the future books in the series. Do yourself a favor and not only read this book but the entire series so far if you have not done already.

I used to believe there were lines in life you don’t cross.
Don’t lie. Don’t cheat. Don’t steal.
Until I learned people don’t always practice what they preach.
I turned in my badge and gun and walked away from everything.
Then I got the call no one wants, and I’m back in New Orleans.
What I don’t expect is for her to be here too.
Another line you don’t cross?

Rhett feels like he’s been burnt by his family. He was taught to obey the law. Follow his family into law enforcement. Be the example. Except that’s not what his father and brother did. As much as he tries to escape and walk away, he is called back to New Orleans and his family. But now he has to deal with Ariel Sampson too, his best friend’s little sister. She’s always been off limits for him but being forced together, will the two be able to avoid the connection they’ve always felt?

“Figure out what you want and go after it.

That’s exactly what I was doing. My life was in ashes, so this was the time to rebuild. Something new. Something good. With Ari.

And right now, I needed some of that good.”

Omg! She did it again and I don’t ever want this series to end! You have no idea how much I wanted Rhett to find his happy. This story had my emotions flying all over the place with figuring out what was happening with Rhett’s Dad’s investigation and who all could be involved. Ariel seemed like such a smart and savvy woman with how she dealt with her business, the threats and even Rhett. He definitely met his match when he started pursuing Ari. The tying up of this series was perfectly executed with this story. All of the characters made a cameo and gave us a sneak peek into their lives. I can’t wait for the spin off with Lachlan Mount coming this Fall.

If you need some alpha bad boys in your romance books, look no further. Meghan March writes the BEST stories that will get you all hot and bothered. If you haven’t read this series or need to catch up, what are you waiting for? I love each and every one of these guys and can’t wait to see who’s next for me to fall in love with.

Ahhh I can’t even tell you how pumped I get when a Meghan March book appears on my kindle. I always know I am in for an amazing ride and probably a good book hangover that leaves me waiting to reread all her other books. I have been WAITING, not so patiently I should add, for the Beneath the Truth to come out. This was the first series of Meghan’s that I read and have been hooked by her and this series ever sense. Beneath the Truth finally gives us the story of Rhett Hennessy (gosh his name even just seeps sexiness). We have seen little bits of Rhett throughout the entire series but now we get an up close and personal encounter of who he is. To say I feel in love with him is  a HUGE understatement. I had a feeling that this book would be amazing and I hate to admit it but I set some pretty big expectations of this book that I hoped Meghan would be able to reach. She not only reached these expectations but she straight up throat punched them and knocked this book out of the park!!!

Beneath the Truth picks  right up with the intensity and sexiness that we expect in the Beneath Series. We are introduced to Ariel, the woman who has always been off limits to Rhett as it is his best friend’s little sister. She has brains, beauty, a bit of awkwardness that you just cant help but fall in love with her. There were times where I couldn’t help but crack up at what came out of her mouth. Ariel has always had a crush on Rhett but knew that nothing would ever come of it because Rhett never paid her any attention- or so she thought. Years later when they both find themselves back in New Orleans for reasons out of their control both of them realize that the crush has never disappeared and the invisibility that one felt was truly an act to try and stay away. As events unravel and puts both Rhett and Ariel in danger it is up to the both of them to figure out who close to them is not who they expect and if the feelings and chemistry they have for one another is fit for the long haul.

Gosh I am so sad to see these series end. I loved every single book of this series. Thankfully Meghan gives us the MOST EPIC EPILOGUE EVER!! I don’t want to go into to much detail about it but it leaves you with a huge smile on your face and an urge to start the entire series all over again (which I a currently doing an entire reread J ) Thank you Meghan for giving us Rhett’s story-the wait was so worth it and you crushed it! I am HIGHLY anticipating your new release and pretty much anything else you write!






Wham. My heart slammed against my ribs as it sped up about twenty beats per minute.

The heat and delicious woodsy citrus scent radiating from his body did good things to me. Things that made me want to do very bad things to him. I wasn’t a seventeen-year-old virgin anymore. I knew my way around a man, but I had to admit, the hipsters in Cali had nothing on a homegrown Louisiana man like Rhett.

When he spoke, he leaned in so close that I could feel his breath on my ear. “You missed that shot on purpose.”

My gaze jumped from the sexy five o’clock shadow shading his jaw to his piercing green eyes.

“Wha-what are you talking about?” I smacked myself mentally when my old stammer kicked in. Of course he would cause it.

“That shot. You missed on purpose. I saw you adjust at the last minute. Why?”

I swallowed the saliva pooling in my mouth and decided to take the safest exit from this situation. Lying.

“Cue slipped.”

His eyes narrowed on me. “You’re lying and you’re terrible at it, just like you’ve always been.” He reached up and pressed his thumb to my left eyebrow. “You get a twitch right here.”

Oh my God. Rhett Hennessy is touching me. And what’s more . . . he knows my tell. He noticed me!

The fifteen-year-old inside me did a terrible cartwheel at the realization. Okay, more of a round-off. With a tumble in the grass to finish. Whatever.

But outwardly, I was trapped in that green gaze until he decided to let me go—or until I came to my senses.

I cleared my throat and sidestepped him. “Whatever you say, hotshot. I need another drink.”

Focusing on putting one four-inch heel in front of the other without biting it, I escaped to the table and reached for the whiskey glass I’d left behind, interrupting my brother and the waitress. They both stared at me as I chugged the contents.

I’d always wondered what it would feel like to have Rhett’s attention, and now I knew. In a word, it was . . . unnerving.

“How’s the game going?” my brother asked.

“Fine.” Keeping my answer short meant he couldn’t tell that I was lying. Heath wasn’t nearly as observant as Rhett.

“You winning?”

Thanking the Lord that Heath obviously hadn’t been watching, I shrugged. “I guess.”

He glanced toward Rhett and then back to me. “The sister I know and love doesn’t lose at pool. Ever. Even to Rhett Hennessy.”

I lowered the glass to the table and straightened my shoulders. “Like they say, things change.”

He nodded slowly. “That may be true about most things, Flounder. But you’re a pool shark and we both know it.”

Before I could respond, Heath’s attention jumped back to the waitress. I took another ten seconds to gather myself, also known as drinking offensively in my mind, before I crossed the floor to face off against my former obsession.

“You all right, Red?” Rhett asked.

“Don’t call me that. And I’ve never been better.”

His gaze dipped to my feet and dragged up my body. “I can agree with that statement.”

Whoa. Who is this guy with the innuendo? A glance at his empty whiskey glass told me he was drinking heavily as well. Was this the booze talking? Or was Rhett Hennessy not just noticing me, but noticing me?

Either way, I had to play it cool. Or at least pretend to play it cool, since it seemed I might fall short.

“Your turn, hotshot. Better not miss, because I’ll clear the table next time,” I said, but my cocky attitude backfired.

Rhett didn’t miss. He sank his balls and then the eight, ending the game almost as quickly as it started. He returned his cue to the rack and turned to face me, all traces of the earlier heat banked, his expression shuttered.

“Game over.”

What the hell just happened?
