About the Book

He should’ve never left his house. He should’ve stayed at home. He has a legitimate excuse—he’s running a fever and he’s fairly sure he’s developing pneumonia. He should have called in sick…but he doesn’t.

He goes to work, because his team is relying on him.

First, he has to sign about eight thousand calendars—all from women who purchased said calendars to benefit the Fallen Officer fundraiser. And when he’s done with that, he has to endure a television interview along with the rest of the SWAT team seeing as they made national news with their ‘Hot SWAT’ calendar that’s sold a million copies to women all over the world.

Needless to say, when Samuel Adams walks into the pharmacy hours later, he only has one thing on his mind. Ibuprofen.

Sadly, he never gets to the Ibuprofen. Mostly because before he gets there, he finds a junkie waving a gun around threatening to kill anybody that moves.

He’s running a fever. That has to be the reason that the girl in the corner begins cursing up a storm and drawing the junkie’s attention. Has to be.

***

Stop it, stop it, stop it!

She tells herself to take a deep breath. Tells herself that she needs to calm down. Tells herself that if she doesn’t get her act under control, things are going to get ugly.

And, of course, that’s when the curse words start flying.

The more nervous she gets, the worse her Tourette’s becomes. Which is, of course, why she stands up and gives the man a perfect target.

Thank God that the coughing giant in the corner makes the same move and saves her life.

And how does she repay him? By calling him every awful word in the dictionary.

Thank you, Tourette’s.

Each of this author’s Kilgore books just get better and better!!! Loved this book. Could not put it down! This book is about Sammy…a hot, super sweet, sexy cop.

We start off with Sammy sick and he goes into the pharmacy to get medicine. Unfortunately, he walks into the middle of an armed robbery. And he meets Hasting…oh my god I love her!!! He doesn’t know it at the time but she’s the manager of “cop row” where all the SWAT team lives. While being forced onto the floor during this robbery, it’s the first time we learn that she has Tourette Syndrome. Let’s just say it takes off from there!!! There is so much action and secondary plots but it is all woven into each other beautifully.

These two go through A LOT in this book and I was rooting for them!!! I adore this whole series and loved this latest installment as well!! You’re missing out on this and the other Kilgore series if you don’t start reading these books now.

Evil Love by Ella Fields ~ Release Blitz w/ 5 Star Review!

EVIL LOVE by Ella Fields
Release Date: September 3rd

BLURB

There was a time Jude Delouxe didn’t hate me, and I’m fairly certain it was when he didn’t know I existed.

Senior year, I finally caught his eye long enough to throw word vomit at him like the obsessed teenage girl I was.

That was then.

You see, the most wanted guy in school blamed me for losing his second chance with his girlfriend. Ex-girlfriend? Whatever. Point is, the Adonis loved to hate me.

It wasn’t my fault he’d followed me. It wasn’t my fault he’d stared too long and stood a little too close, just daring me to accomplish my wildest dreams.

And it most certainly wasn’t my fault his ex-girlfriend arrived when he’d decided to kiss me back.

Then the cruelty began. I’d thought I could handle it, so long as his lips kept gracing mine and he kept giving me more scorching firsts.

Until he took it too far, and all his carefully kept secrets blew open the doors to a brand new world. A world he was all too familiar with.

Obsession became loathing and fear replaced naivety as Jude was forced to hold my hand and help me navigate a secret society rife with sin and debauchery—the crème de la crème of Peridot Island.

If I wasn’t careful, I’d do more than lose what remained of my heart. My first love and greatest foe wouldn’t be satisfied until he’d devoured my soul, too.

Loved it!!!!! For me…this dark story was refreshing and a different take on the stalker/bully romances that I crave. Jude was such an unrepentant asshole. I wasn’t sure how he could be redeemed but there was something about his flirty smirk that pulled me in. Fern was innocent yet determined…WAY TOO GOAL oriented. But it all worked! I was drawn to the characters and not just the hero and heroine. To their friends as well. I need more than a glimpse of this world! I definitely could NOT put this book down.

Behind the Plate by J. Sterling ~ Release Blitz w/ Review

The most anticipated J. Sterling release of the year is finally here! You’ve waited years to meet Jack Carter’s son and the wait is over! Strap in and enjoy the ride. 

Chance Carter is the son of local baseball legend, Jack Carter. Now in his junior year at Fullton State, Chance is facing challenges he never saw coming. Failing a class will stop his draft season short, making him ineligible to play and pushing his goal of professional baseball even further away.

In steps Danika, a mouthy tutor from New York, who only wants to help him pass his class… NOT get in his pants. But try telling that to Chance.  He doesn’t trust girls and he definitely doesn’t trust his new tutor.  A lifetime growing up as a Carter taught him that.

But Danika has issues of her own.  After an incident that happened last year, she doesn’t trust athletes and wants nothing to do with them. And Chance is no exception.

The fireworks explode as the two try to deny the chemistry between them and family secrets are revealed. Chance doesn’t know how to give up on something he wants and he’s decided he wants Danika. There’s just one problem… she has a boyfriend she has no intention of breaking up with.

How can he have her when she belongs to someone else?

I really love this author and have loved her past books. I liked this 2nd book, but didn’t love it. It’s Chance Carter’s story. The son of the great Jack Carter and it’s very reminiscent of his parents’ story…for me, too much like it. The names have changed and characters but the premise was pretty much the same.

Chance is the bad boy of baseball and has his focus solely on that. He wants no distractions from anything or anyone. That is until he meets Danika. He is failing, needs a tutor and she is the only choice. She is known to be the best, but he thinks she may be a distraction. He knows his future depends upon passing, and she can 100% help him do that. He agrees and that’s where it all begins.

Danika has no time for baseball players or their egos but agrees to tutor Chance. She is quite the spitfire and does not let him get away with anything. The more time they spend together, she starts to realize Chance is more than baseball and an admiration as well as attraction starts to form. Now this wouldn’t be an issue if she didn’t have a boyfriend and that lends a little drama to this storyline. It was cute to watch these two fight their feelings for each other and work through their issues. But it was very predictable and mirrored his parents’ story. Good but I was hoping for more.

Meet J. Sterling

I’m a New York Times and USA Today best selling author of over 18 books! My goal is to write stories that you can get lost in, that will leave a smile on your face and a full heart. If you can forget about the real world while you’re reading and fall in love with my characters, then I’ve done my job. A lot of what I write has real life aspects in it, but that’s what makes the stories so relateable- the fact that they could happen to anyone… and have!

I live in California with my only son, Blake. If you can’t find me sitting behind a computer screen, then there’s a good chance I’m sitting in the bleachers of a baseball stadium watching him play. I love traveling to new places, meeting my readers and living life with the Real Jack Carter. ♡

I know you have a million books to choose from and I am humbled, grateful and thankful each time you choose to read one of mine, or tell someone else to read them. Thank you.

BLURB

He was my foster brother.
He swore to protect me.
He failed.
They all failed.
I’m an open box of passé photographs, snapped in chaste daylight, but filtered in sepia. I’m the past that he tried to forget, and he was the future I needed. When he left six years ago, I screamed for him every night. But then it all stopped. My screams were suddenly muffled by cruelty, and further coaxed by pain.
But he has come back. He’s not the cute big brother I had a furtive crush on, or the bad boy, rich brat that I hated to love.
He’s the ruthless vice president of Wolf Pack MC, and he doesn’t answer to Royce Kane anymore.
He answers to Sicko.

Everything I love and expect from an Amo Jones’ book. Dark, gritty and full of steaminess. Loved the twists and angst from two soulmates torn apart AND the touch of forbidden. I really couldn’t put it down. Jade has a whole lot of secrets going on. Especially after her foster brother Royce disappears for four years. Will their former closeness pull them together or tear them apart? Royce returns having joined a Motorcycle Club. “Sicko” says he wants to protect his sister but his actions point to hating her versus loving her. I loved the mixed up emotions and push and pull between these two. All of the hidden parts of Jade’s life that come spilling out and she can’t keep secret any longer. So many intriguing characters. And depraved and disgusting acts…so much of it all. My pitch black soul loved every single page!

New Zealand is not a state of Australia and rugby is the best sport ever played.

I don’t know why it’s been so long since I have read one of Colleen Hoover’s books. She has always been one of favorite authors. Any book I have read of hers I’ve almost instantly fallen in love with. But still it seems like far too long since I have opened a book with her name on the cover. To me, this book in many ways was like reconnecting with an old friend. Reminding me of all the reasons I loved her writing so much. I couldn’t possibly have loved this book anymore than I did. This book hurt so badly. It turned me inside out and back again. It shattered my heart and then tenderly picked up the pieces. I laughed. I swooned. I uncontrollably sobbed and I smiled. There was so much emotion within the pages of this story. Colleen Hoover is a master storyteller and this book…this book was everything!

“The nicest thing my Mother has ever done for me is Die.”

Beyah has been dealt a shitty hand so far in life. This girl has been through so much in her nineteen years. She is holding onto a dream that will soon become a reality because of her perseverance. She’ll get to leave her broken down trailer in her shithole town and never look back. Just a few more months and she’ll be so much more than anyone in her home town in thought she’d ever be. But then tragedy strikes and left with literally no choice at all, she is leaving behind Kentucky and headed to Texas.

“Damaged people recognize other damaged people.”

Beyah is staying with her Dad, who she barely knows, and his new wife and daughter for the summer in this beautiful beach house in Texas. This is where she meets their neighbor Samson who her new step-sister Sara is hoping to set her up with. Beyah thinks Samson is someone who he really isn’t and he thinks she is someone she really isn’t too. This sounds a little confusing but it’s not…it’s just me. It may seem like they come from completely different worlds but soon we start to see that they may have more in common than they thought. What starts out as a friendship grows into something so much more but they are both holding on so tightly to secrets that can change everything.

“You think you’re as alone in this world as I am?”

I feel like I can’t say anything more about the actual story without giving anything away. This is definitely one of those times you need to jump in with as little information as possible and let yourself be immersed in this beautiful, amazing and powerful story that Colleen Hoover gives us with Heart Bones. I will say I loved Beyah and Samson so very much. I honestly don’t remember the last time I was this fully invested in two characters. Every single thing about them. They both amazed me. I just can not stop thinking about them. I also love the way the author wrote Sara, Beyah’s step-sister. I feel like all too often the step-sister is an evil witch who is jealous of the new girl but not here. Just the opposite and I loved it. So read this book, you just have too. This book was nothing that I expected and because of that I loved it so much more.

“Don’t worry. Hearts don’t have bones. They can’t actually break.”

Excerpt

Samson’s knee brushes high up on my inner thigh and I’m glad he can’t see anything from my chin down, because my body is covered in chills right now.

“I didn’t think there were many people in the world like me,” he says.

“You think we’re alike?” I want to laugh at that comparison, but there’s not an ounce of humor in his expression.

“I believe we have a lot more in common than you think we do, Beyah.”

“You think you’re as alone in this world as I am?”

He folds his lips together and nods his head, and it’s the most honest thing I’ve ever seen. I never would have thought someone so well off could have a life as shitty as mine, but I can see it in the way he’s looking at me. Everything about him suddenly seems familiar to me.

He’s right. We are alike, but only in the saddest ways.

My voice comes out in a whisper when I say, “When I first met you on that ferry, I could tell you were damaged.”

There’s a flicker of something in his eyes as he tilts his head to the right. “You think I’m damaged?”

“Yes.”

He moves even closer in the water, but there wasn’t much space left between us to begin with. It’s deliberate, and so much of me is touching so much of him now. “You’re right,” he says quietly, slipping a hand around the back of my left knee. “There’s nothing left of me but a fucking pile of debris.” He pulls me to him, wrapping both my legs around him. That’s all he does, though. He doesn’t try to kiss me. He just connects us together as if that’s enough while our arms keep us both afloat.

I’m swiftly succumbing to him. I don’t know in what way. All of them, maybe. Because right now, I need him to do something else. Anything else. Taste me. Touch me. Drag me under.

We watch each other for a moment and it’s almost like looking into a broken mirror. He leans in slowly, but not toward my mouth. He presses his lips against my shoulder, so gentle it feels like a graze.

I close my eyes and inhale.

I’ve never felt anything so sensual. So perfect.
