Dare to Tempt Banner


By Carly Phillips
Release Date: August 4

He’s a smooth talking jock in trouble  
She’s the solution to his problems.  
Love is the last thing they expected to find. 

Damon Prescott had it all. Star quarterback. Money. Fame. Now? He’s being accused of taking performance enhancing drugs and banned from the sport and team he loves.

Determined to prove he’s innocent, he hires tough as nails private investigator, Evie Wolfe. She’s able to bring a man to his knees with a glare, yet sensual in ways that take him off guard – and she’s everything Damon didn’t know he needed.

Evie’s used to men dismissing her, especially playboys like Damon Prescott so she’s not buying the sexual lines he’s trying to sell. She’s with him to do a job, nothing more. But you know what they say about the best laid plans? Sometimes you end up between the sheets with an arrogant football player anyway.

But when the case is over, can Damon convince Evie she’s the only woman for him or will she leave him tied up in love?

For me, this wasn’t my most favorite book sadly. Damon is a pro quarterback that has just been accused of taking performance enhancing drugs which he vehemently denies. All of those that are close to him believe him, but he has to have proof that he didn’t willingly take them. His sister hires her friend Evie who is somewhat of a PI to find out who could have given him the drugs. Evie is hard as steel and has no interest in Damon other then helping prove his innocence.

An idea is presented that Damon and Evie should pretend to be a couple so she can get close to his inner circle to see if she can find any clues. As you can guess, since they pretend to be a couple real feelings start to develop. It was an ok read for me. I didn’t feel much of a connection between these two and the second half of the book was pretty predictable. I would read more in this series but this just wasn’t my favorite one.

This book was not what I had originally thought. Maybe I needed to read the first book in this series but to be honest even if I had more background, it wouldn’t have made me love the dynamics between a few of these characters.

Salome is in love with her brother’s best friend Chris. For years. Chris is also in love with her but there is so much more to this simple “best friend’s little sister”. Chris is bisexual and had a fling with Salome’s brother years ago. Salome may or may not be bisexual. Chris hooks up with Salome’s best friend Jordan who is gay and so on. It was hard to follow at times. Also the whole friend/brother swapping wasn’t really for me. Not to mention Salome’s family treats her like crap and she never stands up for herself.

I felt no connection between her and Chris even though they have had feeling for each other for so long. It just was not a smooth read for me. I didn’t like some of the characters and how they treated each other. Maybe I was missing something but sadly this book wasn’t for me. It might be for you.

Bliss Ebook Cover (1)

Title: Bliss
Series: Entangled Hearts Duet #2
Author: Kaylee Ryan
Genre: New Adult Romance
Release Date: July 16, 2020



Reese Latham was about to make the biggest mistake of her life.

At eight-years-old, we vowed to be best friends for the rest of our lives, thinking nothing could ever change that.

We were both wrong— we made mistakes, and grew apart. Until I realized living without her wasn’t an option.

I was almost too late… but I wouldn’t stand by and watch her walk down the aisle to another man. She might not choose me, but I’ll spend the rest of my life proving I’m all in.


Every step I take towards my happy ending takes me further away from my best friend.

Leave it to Cooper Reeves to wait until I’m about to say “I Do” before he finally admits how he feels.

It’s not his confession that has me doubting myself. It’s my heart. Because I know deep down, it’s him… it’s always been him.

I was crazy to think I could live without Cooper because sharing forever with my best friend is the best kind of bliss.

This book had HUGE shoes to fill as a follow up to Agony. I have to say I was so ready for this book when it hit my kindle and could NOT wait to see the how this all played out for Cooper and Reese. He is at her wedding as she is about to marry someone else and he is in pure freaking agony!!! But as fate would have it, the unexpected happens and Cooper cannot believe it. He cannot believe he is that close to losing her.

While Agony had so much drama and angst and had me on the edge of my seat and left me with my heart ripped out, Bliss was not filled with as much emotional turmoil. To be fair, the first couple of chapters were great with the drama played out and the aftermath. Their love story and drama lost some of its effect due to her being wishy washy. I loved Cooper and was rooting the whole time for him while I was screaming at her to just get over it before she loses her soulmate! The story was good but book one was definitely better for me.

Join the Club by Lani Lynn Vale ~ Release Blitz w/ 4 Star Review!

Banner AN_ Join the Club_Lani Lynn Vale


By Lani Lynn Vale
Release Date: July 14

There are a few lessons one has to learn for themselves. Then there are the lessons that most people don’t have to learn because it’s just not done.

For instance, most people know instinctively that they shouldn’t crave the mother of their brother’s child.

Bourne Pena isn’t most men.

Bourne does everything he can to fight the attraction he feels for Delanie, but in the end, his refusal to go there almost ends up costing him his life.


Delanie Davidsdottir just wanted to forget. One night, she wanted to feel like a normal human being.

That one night changes her life and gives her a son that becomes her heart and soul. From that point forward, she does her level best to keep her head on straight and not make any more mistakes.

And falling for her child’s father’s twin brother—say that three times fast— would be a mistake. Not only is he Trouble with a capital T, he’s also a SWAT officer that puts his life on the line every single day.

She can’t take another loss like the one she suffered once before.

Then again, Delanie never encountered a man like Bourne Pena before, either.

I absolutely adore this series and the other KPD series. They are hot, steamy and have alpha males in all of them. These are the reasons why I didn’t think twice to read this installment. This is the Bourne/Booth and Delanie/Dillon love triangle plus one. Bourne and Booth are brothers and Delanie and Dillon are sisters. It’s slightly tricky since one brother knocked up Delanie but is in love with her sister. I was ready to indulge in this part two book to see how it all plays how but I have to say it was my least favorite book of all the series which made me very sad!

It was a good storyline but for some reason I just couldn’t get into it. Maybe because Booth is his brother’s girlfriend’s kid’s dad? Maybe because it felt too weird? I don’t know but I felt distracted by that too much to enjoy the love story and semi sexy scenes. It definitely won’t discourage me from reading any further books but was just a little sad that I couldn’t immerse myself into Booth’s story. Still it was a good addition to the series.

Hooked on Her by Stacey Lynn ~ Blog Tour w/ 4 Star Review & Excerpt!

HOH - BT banner

“Stacey Lynn always knows how to perfectly balance sexy and sweet.”
New York Times bestselling author Lauren Layne


Hooked on Her, an all-new fun and flirty forbidden romance from Stacey Lynn is out now!

Tessa Chauncy is the best kind of trouble. Beautiful, sweet and completely off limits. I’ve sat by and watched other men drool after her and forced myself to stay in check. Hey, I’m in the NHL… I have self-control in spades.

Except when it comes to her.

With the bat of her lashes and quick whip of that sharply pointed tongue Tessa can knock grown men to their knees. I’ve seen them wither and crumble under her confident stare— something I’m pretty sure she learned from sparring with me, thankyouverymuch.

But I’m not just falling for her. I’m down for the count.

She’s the girl I wanted, when wanting her was wrong.
She’s also my new roommate–
And oh yeah, my best friend’s little sister.

Heaven help me, I’m probably going to get his fist to my face or his hockey stick shoved in very dangerous places for what I’m about to do, but I don’t think I care anymore.

I’m in love with my best friend’s little sister….and I’m done waiting.

This was a cute little book that was well written and definitely kept my attention. It’s a little sister/brother’s best friend romance. Tessa has had a rough go. Her now ex-fiancé has drained her savings and cleaned out everything in their apartment in Toronto. She is completely deflated and devastated.

She goes to North Carolina to stay with her hockey playing brother and girlfriend to figure out her next move. Only while there, she has to put up with her brother Sawyer’s best friend Jason. When they say there is a thin line between love and hate, it rings true between Tessa and Jason. They are downright mean to each other and have been for years! But is it because they hate each other or out of sexual frustration for each other??? Once Jason finds out that Tessa is no longer engaged and staying in the United States, he knows it’s the perfect time to finally tell her how he has always felt about her.

Will these two fight feelings that have been brewing for years or will Tessa pack up and head back to Toronto? This was a great little love story that had funny one liners, heartfelt moments and some steamy scenes. I enjoyed this book and look forward to reading more in this series.

I scoop more chicken onto a folded chunk of naan and moan as I savor the taste. There are some decent restaurants where I live, all within walking distance, which is a bonus, but none are as good as Tandor’s. I can’t even piece together what makes it so delicious but it’s mouth-watering amazing.

“Jesus, Tessa. Can you not sound like you’re having an orgasm when you eat?”

I choke on my chicken and wash it down with my water. “Don’t like it, you can leave.”

“But then I won’t be able to share with you why I’m here.”

The chicken I’ve devoured rolls in my stomach. Obviously it’s not because he’s a nice guy. I lean back in my chair. “What is it?”

He huffs a laugh and I hate he looks so damn good, smirking at me, shaking his head like I’m some amusing little thing.

“You’re cute, Tessa. I ever tell you that?”

“I think the day you took me to get stitches in my head, yeah. You bopped me on the nose with a finger and said ‘cute and tough, nice’ before ignoring me the rest of the weekend.”

I’m mortified with myself. He’s not supposed to know these things, know how much I remember every.single.encounter with him ever.

His mouth opens a bit and he stares at me. Yeah. That dose of word vomit probably surprises the hell out of him too. But hell, in for a penny. He says he doesn’t give a shit about what Sawyer thinks? He should know what I think.

“I’m pretty sure that’s the day I started having a crush on you.”

He doesn’t take his eyes off me as he chews on what I think is chicken tikki masala. Slowly, he swallows and sets his own fork down. Leaning forward, elbows on the table, I’m tempted to drop my gaze to his mouth and watch his full lips move so sexily as he opens his mouth and asks, “Want to know when it started for me? When I started facing the reality that it was my best friend’s little sister that made my dick hard in my dreams at night and when I was on the road?”
