EMMY

My fall from grace was one for the books. All it took was his word against mine for everything to topple.

Liar. Slut. Snitch.

Now, I wear my shame like a scarlet letter pinned to my chest.

People say I ruined his life. Except, he’s the one who irrevocably broke me—my heart, my body, my soul…my will to live.

STERLING

Like a little coward, she thinks the span of five states is enough to keep her safe. But I know where she is and I’m going to make her pay.

She ruined my best friend’s life. Now…I’m going to ruin her.

One by one, I’ll spill her secrets, until she has nowhere left to turn—except to me, her very own big, bad wolf.

Emmy has a tortured past. Her sick, sadistic stepbrother Rob took advantage of her in the worst way possible. Multiple times and when she finally had the strength to tell someone, no one believed her. Not even her own mother. Of course, her stepfather threw money at the problem and hired a high powered attorney. That attorney happens to be a family friend. The father of Rob’s best friend Sterling. Not only did Emmy grow up with her stepbrother but also his best friend Sterling. He was added to the list of people that now thought she was a slut and liar out to ruin someone’s life with her stories.

Emmy moves on and away to start over at college. Somewhere where people don’t know what she has been through. Somewhere where people won’t stare, judge and call her names. Things get off to a great start and she finally feels like there is light at the end of the tunnel. Until she finds out that one of her professors has a TA and it’s Sterling. She is horrified and knows this will not turn out good.

Rob alerts Sterling to the fact that his sister is there and enlists him using the “bro code” to help destroy Emmy’s life. Now here’s where things turned for me. I was liking the story up until this point and Sterling doing evil Rob’s bidding. Until he starts to doubt if Rob is actually telling the truth and that Emmy made up the rape accusation. Not only does Sterling start to doubt him, he is starting to have an attraction to Emmy and vice versa. At this point, I was lost.

Emmy is supposedly so devastated by what happened and Sterling is torturing her. She is wrecked. Sterling hates her guts to the point of enjoying torturing her and then WHAM…it’s all hearts and flowers. Sterling wants to prove her innocence and kill his best friend. Pump the brakes here! It literally happened in less then one chapter and the pivoting of these two had me rolling my eyes. It definitely needed a chapter or three more to make this transition more believable. At the speed it happened, the book just didn’t feel like the story flowed where I could lose myself again. But it might be the perfect bully romance for you.

EXCERPT

“Waiting for your next victim?” a cool, dark voice asks from my left.

“What do you want?” I ask without turning around. His voice alone sends shivers down my spine. God only knows what seeing his smug smile and sharp jaw would do to me right now.

Stupidly, I let my guard down tonight. Every single fiber of my being is telling me to run, but I refuse—partly because the thought of making a scene in front of all of these people has my skin feeling tight and itchy, and also because I refuse to give him the satisfaction of seeing me run away… again.

Sterling leans in, his breath tickling my neck and his body warming mine. “I’m just saying. Dressed the way you are, you must be looking for a good time. And I can’t help but wonder…” He trails off, skimming his nose down the column of my throat before scraping his teeth against the sensitive flesh where my neck and shoulder meet.

“Stop it!” I pray for my voice to come out firm and commanding, but seeing as God abandoned me long ago, I sound raw and needy. Which is a lie. I am a lot of things in regard to Sterling Abbot—angry, frustrated, hurt—but definitely not needy.

I try to shoulder-check him, but he bands an arm around my waist and pulls me in closer, bringing my back flush with his front. The feel of our bodies pressed together has my heart slamming against my ribs as arousal and disgust battle for dominance inside of me.

Judging from my roiling gut and damp panties, it’s a tie.

“I don’t really think you mean that, little mouse.”

It’s been six years since Jazyln Benson skated out of my life and now that she’s back, I’m determined to make her mine.

But things are different this time around.

She’s the new owner of the Nashville Devils which makes her my boss. She has the power to destroy my career and being seen with me would destroy hers. She’s the one woman who’s supposed to be off limits. Too bad I can’t get her out of my head.

And they’re all waiting for me to fail.

I had high hopes for this book and liked the storyline premise but it’s one that has been done before. I was hoping this one rose above the rest. Jazlyn and her brother inherit a hockey team when her father passes away. She starts to get a lot of blowback because she is a woman, doesn’t know how to run a hockey team (even though she was on the Women’s Olympic Team) wears skirts, yada, yada, yada. She knows that she has to lay low and prove herself to management, the team, the fans…everyone. Only it’s not as easy once she realizes that the new team captain is no other than the boy who broke her heart 6 years ago, Lincoln.

Lincoln is a hot, sexy, alpha hockey player who has just been named team captain. Jazlyn waltzes in as the new co-owner of his team and the girl he left behind. He had his reasons for leaving and is not sure if that reason will be able to be kept a secret any more. Especially when he realizes his feelings for her have never gone away and come roaring back. Jazlyn, however, is not ready to bring any attention to her or the team. She’s not ready to have her heart broken again. Or is she?

This was a light read for me. I had hoped for some fire in it but it wasn’t quite hot enough for me. Might be exactly what you are looking for though.

Okkkkkkk…not sure what I just read but I want MORE ASAP!!! There is not a lot I can say about this book without giving way too much away so you just need to go read it! But I will say that Mia is from a small town that is into some crazy sh*t. They have very old and creepy traditions that only a few know the details about while everyone has their theory about what is actually going on in the decade old “tradition”. She finds herself betrothed to the hottest guy at school Cade. After getting to know him she is borderline scared/creeped out when every other girl would die to get a chance with him.

But Mia’s heart is already slowly getting attached to the new guy at school Bexley. Only Bexley is not who he thinks he is and throws a huge wrench in Cade’s plan to rule the town and school. There are so many twists and turns and secrets that get exposed that they literally had me on the edge of my seat. Mia and Bexley know that they will never be allowed to be together but can’t fight their feelings. There are some hot sexy scenes, some creepy hazing scenes and angst…all wrapped up in a love story.

Until the very end, which is a huge cliff hanger and left me with a wtf, this book was a page turner and had me hooked from the beginning. Will be patiently waiting for the next book to come out!

My Beautiful Neighbor by Piper Rayne ~ Release Blitz w/ Review

MY BEAUTIFUL NEIGHBOR
Piper Rayne
Release Date: February 23

Who’s the mystery woman who just walked into my brewery?

I’m not the only one from my Alaskan small town asking themselves that question. But I’m positive, I’m the only one in Sunrise Bay undressing the pretty blonde in my head. Everything about her, from her make-up to her high heels says she’s a fish out of water.

Whispers and speculations run rampant until the secret of who she is gets uncovered. Then the rumor mill goes into overdrive when she announces she’s staying to open a bookstore in the building next to mine—throwing a big wrench into my plans to buy that empty building.

I quickly find myself in a tug-of-war since my business partner/brother is upset she’s ruined the opportunity to expand our business. I try to keep my distance, but I’ve got one sister with a gossip column on the local radio station and two meddling grandmas setting me up as a tour director.

And now I kind of like the idea of our new neighbor staying. But small-town life isn’t for the weak—time will tell if she has what it takes to be one of us.

I really like all of this author’s books but for some reason the first book of this new series didn’t connect with me. It takes place in a very small intimate town in Alaska. A town where everyone knows each other and their business. A well known figure passes away and leaves her sewing store to her daughter Clara. Clara has a group of tight knit friends and I have a feeling they will each be getting a book. Clara finds out that she actually has a sister that she never knew when she shows up to the reading of the will.

Cade is one of the Greene’s, a well known family in town. Successful and good looking, he is working at the family bar when Presley walks in. There is an instant attraction between these two and their banter and funny one liners kept me going to the very end.

Cade has past relationship issues and Presley is dealing with owning her own store and a sister she has never known. Can she handle a relationship with a handsome stranger too? For me, it was hard to feel the “love” connection. It was also hard to empathize with the two long lost sisters reuniting. I wanted more from this series and I couldn’t completely lose myself in the story. There was no angst, no drama…it was pretty docile except for a few sexy love scenes. I am looking forward to reading future books in this series with my fingers crossed!

Hawk by Kat Savage ~ Release Blitz

HAWK
By Kat Savage
Release Date: February 23

Hawk Tanner is not a man of many words—especially if you’re a silly girl getting a silly tattoo in his shop. The owner of Bird’s Eye Tattoo Studio doesn’t want you to tip him with your phone number or flirty glances. He’s tired of all the wrong women wanting him for all the wrong reasons.

Drew Ashby has no time—for anything. As a recently-divorced single mother, her focus is on finding a job, caring for her daughter, and rebuilding some semblance of a life after hers was wrecked.

When Drew lands a job at Bird’s Eye, sparks don’t immediately fly. She can’t deny the fact that her boss is a delicious specimen of a man. His tattoo-covered skin might even drive her wild, but his brooding presence and set jaw make him hard to read.

That is, until he drops the bad boy persona and starts making moves on her—kind and caring gestures she doesn’t expect.

Things turn hot, and just when Drew thinks everything is finally going right, life does what it does best: It throws her a curveball from her past.

Bird’s Eye might not be the family Drew envisioned for herself, but ideals can change in a heartbeat. There’s no doubt Hawk is the man she wants, but can he step up and be the man she needs?

Meet Kat Savage

Kat Savage resides in Louisville, Kentucky with her three beautiful children, her hunky spouse, and two spoiled dogs. She secretly has hope of getting chickens one day.

By day, she’s an office manager, pushing paperwork and daydreaming. When she’s not at her nine-to-five, she’s writing. Or thinking about writing. Or preparing books and book stuff. Or quite possibly, designing stuff for other people’s books.

She was driven to writing out of a need to distraction and self-preservation after the death of her sister in 2013. Since then, it’s snowballed into a full blown passion she can’t escape. Even on the toughest days, she wouldn’t want to.

She writes poetry packed with real, raw, and sometimes ugly truths. She won’t lie. Her goal is to make you ache, in that perfect delicious way we often secretly crave.

Shortly after putting her poetry and prose out into the world, she turned to novel writing. Savage is a natural storyteller, getting better with each book. She tries to give the characters in her novels depth, whether they’re serious or comical, she builds them in layers with the hope that you see a little of yourself in some of them.
