~Synopsis~

From New York Times bestselling author K. Bromberg comes a new, sexy standalone about taking chances and finding love when it’s least expected. Or wanted.
This whole contest was supposed to be easy. I know, I know. Famous last words.
It’s a long story, but I messed up at work. Big time. To earn back the trust of my boss, I promised to save one of our magazines. Yep. That Hot Dad contest you’ve seen advertised all over the place was my idea. And if I’m successful, if I’m able to increase our online readership, then I get a shot at my dream job.
But the one thing I never expected to happen, happened: Contestant number ten, Grayson Malone. Hello, Mr. Difficult. And did I mention sexy as hell?
Unfortunately he knows me. The old me, anyway. And while we might be older now, I remind him of before. Of the woman who broke his heart, who hardened him, and who left him alone to raise the cutest little boy I’ve ever seen. 
But I don’t want a relationship. And I definitely don’t fall for single dads with baggage. Even ones with chiseled abs and killer smiles. 
But he got to me. They got to me. Him and his son and their messy, crazy life. But I got to him too. I see the stolen glances. I feel the walls he built start to crumble. I recognize that there’s an unexpected beauty to the chaos in his life. 
And now that the contest is about to end, we’re left to decide whether the last six months were just fun or if what we have is worth risking it all?

I have been waiting for Grayson’s book, ever since I’ve read “Cuffed”. I was so curious to get to know more about this “medevac” single dad! I’m glad to say that he didn’t disappoint. 😉 He is definitely a combination of sexy and sweet! A real Hero…I especially loved the relationship he had with his 8 year old son, Luke.

I am familiar with K.I. Lynn’s work and I especially loved the “Breach” series. When I read the blurb for this new book, I was immediately intrigued. It was just vague enough for me to become very, very curious.

~Synopsis~

A COMPLETE standalone and a Sinners of Saint spin-off.
Roman ‘Bane’ Protsenko 
Naked surfer. Habitual pothead. A con, a liar, a thief and a fraud. 
Last I heard, he was extorting the rich and screwing their wives for a living. 
Which is why I’m more than a little surprised to find him at my threshold, looking for my friendship, my services, and most puzzling of all—looking humbled. 
Thing is, I’m on a boycott. Literally—I cut boys from my life. Permanently. 
Problem is, Bane is not a boy, he is all man, and I’m falling, crashing, drowning in his sweet, perfect lies. 
Jesse Carter 
Hot as hell, cold as ice. 
I wasn’t aware of her existence until a fat, juicy deal landed in my lap. 
She’s a part of it, a little plaything to kill some time. 
She is collateral, a means to an end, and a side-bonus for striking a deal with her oil tycoon stepdad. 
More than anything, Jesse Carter is a tough nut to crack. 
Little does she know, I have the teeth for it.

It’s no secret that I am a fan of L.J. Shen’s work. This is the fourth book in the series, and no worries, it can be read as a standalone. I would advise reading the others though, I myself especially loved “Ruckus”,  and even though this book certainly rocked…he will always be my favorite I think. 😉 That said, this one comes in on a close second!! Bane and Jesse definitely had me on the edge of my seat. 😉

Rating: ✮4 Stars✮

~Synopsis~

The steamy Chicago Rebels series returns with this racy and sassy tale of embittered hearts, second chances, and going for the goal—on and off the ice.
Violet Vasquez never met her biological father, so learning he left his beloved hockey franchise—the Chicago Rebels—to her is, well, unexpected. Flat broke and close to homeless, Violet is determined to make the most of this sudden opportunity. Except dear old dad set conditions that require she takes part in actually running the team with the half-sisters she barely knows. Working with these two strangers and overseeing a band of hockey-playing lugs is not on her agenda…until she lays eyes on the Rebels captain and knows she has to have him.
Bren St. James has been labeled a lot of things: the Puck Prince, Lord of the Ice, Hell’s Highlander…but it’s the latest tag that’s making headlines: washed-up alcoholic has-been. This season, getting his life back on track and winning the Cup are his only goals. With no time for relationships—except the fractured ones he needs to rebuild with his beautiful daughters—he’s finding it increasingly hard to ignore sexy, all-up-in-his-beard Violet Vasquez. And when he finds himself in need of a nanny just as the playoffs are starting, he’s faced with a temptation he could so easily get hooked on.
For two lost souls, there’s more on the line than just making the best of a bad situation… there might also be a shot at the biggest prize of all: love.

Violet is the result of a one night stand, and even though her father knew she existed, he never showed any interest in her….Until he died that is.

~Synopsis~

One punch took him from Hollywood’s Golden Boy to Bad Boy Brody.
The media didn’t care he was grieving his brother’s death. They descended on him, but to change his reputation, his manager got him a deal. Act in an indie film, one that already had Oscar buzz, and he’d get the movie roles he needed to secure his future.
He took the deal.
Yet he wasn’t prepared for the real-life people behind the script. He wasn’t prepared for the murder the movie was based on. And he really wasn’t prepared for her, the biggest secret of all.
She was wild. She was beautiful. She defied gravity.
But was she the leading role that would tame him?

I absolutely loved Pam Godwin’s “Deliver” series, and when I found out she was gonna write another dark romance series with cowboys…I was all over that!

At first, I figured this was gonna be a trilogy with cliffhangers, so imagine my relief, when I found out that each book was gonna center around a different couple. They still need to be read in order, but they all have their own HEA, and better yet NO cliffhanger!!…If you have read some of Pam Godwin’s dark romance books, then you know that there will be triggers, which is also the case with this one. Please be aware of that.

This is my second read from this author, and I must say I really like it. But my favorite remains the first book I read by this author, This Life I …This is a quick and short read, more erotic than romantic, but very very hot… and I’m a big fan of menage’ and daddy kink…The book tells the story of three people. They are all attracted to each other and although they try to fight that attraction they still fall in love.

Wheeler by Ker Dukey is the fourth and the last book in the Four Fathers series. The books can be read as a standalone, but I suggest reading them in order because they interconnect. Especially don’t read book four before the other three books, it will spoil everything for you. I thought I knew what I will get myself in, but clearly, I wasn’t. I was expecting something different…a different story for Jax, his own story with a girl, but in many ways, Jax really had a different story.

Jax Wheeler is an obsessive freak guy with a very dark side… intense, possessive, and mysterious but he loves his daughter Rowan.You will hate this guy, I can’t say, hero, because he’s not a one. I hated him, still, do…I don’t know what to say about the book, without not saying anything important about the plot or storyline…but I will try.

Pearson by K. Webster is book 3 in the Four Fathers series…K. Webster and Ker Dukey are for me, the reason I wanted to read this series. It was a first time reading for the others authors, J.D.

Pearson is a taboo romance story and maybe it’s not for everyone…but, I liked it very much!

Finnegan O’Shea 
The Sons of Munster have been living this life for generations. We have our own protocol, our own traditions, dating back to when two families merged and created our syndicate in Ireland. Now, we have our strongholds in Philly and Chicago, and the wrong man holds the highest position. The day my uncle decided to betray us, he signed his own death warrant, and after a five-year hitch in the can, I’m ready to take everything from him. In order to ensure the demise of his management, I have to get close to him. I need to earn his trust and that of his closest associates. I’ll be the top earner he wants me to be. I’ll be the very image of a conventional family man. 
For that to happen, this Irish bastard has to find himself a wife. Someone sweet and compliant who will stand by my side and make me look like I have too much to lose to screw over the head of the family. 
Emilia Porter 
When it rains, it pours, so I guess it’s been pouring for eighteen years now. Being from an old mining town that’s full of drunk cautionary tales, I spend my days juggling—and failing—school, work, and paying the bills so my dad can drink himself into a stupor. Then this freaking guy rolls into town in his expensive sports car and thinks I should marry him. This isn’t the fifties, and there isn’t a snowball’s chance in hell I’ll marry a well-known mobster. No matter how much money he promises me. No matter how intensely the chemistry sizzles between us. 
He asks for three years of marriage. Then I’d be set for life, independent and free to start fresh on my own. Free to walk away. Who the hell does he think he is?
