~Synopsis~

I gave them everything. After years of hard work and 
dedication, they gave me the boot instead of the promotion I deserved. 
To hell with them. I’d land on my feet. I was sure of it. 
The last place I ever expected to land, though, was in the
small town of Billingsley, Texas. A place I vowed never to 
return to after a disastrous one-night stand. 
Unfortunately, skipping your best friend’s wedding was not
an option. Neither was avoiding that one man who managed
to turn my world upside down in a single evening nearly a year ago.
I’d never been a runner. I’d never been one to hide. 
But sometimes, it’s necessary…

~Synopsis~

They’re serving up some red-hot revenge. A sizzling series from #1 New York Times bestselling author Rachel van Dyken.

Blaire has never quite gotten over Jessie Beckett, the ex–NFL star whose kisses were hot enough to ignite the entire Eastern Seaboard. When he chose work over her, Blaire was left brokenhearted. Why else would she have married a skeezy two-timer, just to divorce him less than a year later? Now Blaire is getting even by becoming one half of Dirty Exes, a PI firm fully committed to humiliating cheating jerks. If only the new jerk she’s been hired to uncover wasn’t Jessie Beckett himself. Exposing Jessie isn’t going to be easy, especially when she still daydreams about his sexy smile. Further complicating matters is Colin, Jessie’s best friend. He’s gorgeous, a little bit cunning, and willing to help Blaire get the inside scoop on Jessie—for a price. Now caught between two men—one totally right and the other totally wrong—Blaire will need to decide just how much she’s willing to risk…and whom she’s willing to risk it for.

Apparently, this new series is a spin-off of the “Wingmen Inc.” series. Blaire, the heroine in this book is Ian’s (Matchmakers Playbook) sister. Now no worries, you don’t have to read the previous series to understand this book, it completely standalone. I myself haven’t, but since I really enjoyed this one, I will probably go back and fix that. 😛 Now, what I loved most about this book, is that it made me laugh. For me, this was really one of those feel good stories.

When half–wolf shifter Frankie Newman receives an e-mail from a family member she didn’t know existed, a secret is revealed: as a child, Frankie witnessed her father killing her mother…and then himself. Frankie was torn from her pack by her mother’s human relatives, and the trauma was erased from her memory. Realizing that she’s been lied to her entire life, she’s never felt more alone. Until she catches the scent of an old friend—warmly familiar and intoxicating.
Trick Hardy, alpha wolf of the Phoenix Pack, can sense the rush of mutual attraction when he sees Frankie again. He knows immediately that she’s his true mate. But he also knows that, given her fragile state, he needs to tread with care—no matter how fierce his surging desires.
As aroused as Frankie is by Trick’s darkly dominant air and simmering desire, her priority right now is her past—not her future, no matter how tempting. But as more secrets emerge and Frankie’s life is threatened, Trick must do everything he can to keep her close and safe. After all, it’s their destiny.

I have been waiting to read Trick’s book ever since I read Marcus’ book. No that’s a big fat lie! I have been waiting to read Trick’s book, ever since I read that naughty little scene in “Feral Sins” (book 1) when Trick and Marcus got down together! Wow, that was awesome. 😉

Rating: ✮4.5 Stars✮

~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.

~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. 😉

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!

Afbeeldingsresultaat voor all over that gif

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.

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?

This player’s got a lot to learn if he wants to score . . . with the boss’s daughter.
Stone:
 Football is more than a game to me. It’s my calling. Becoming the Dallas Wranglers’ starting quarterback before I retire is a dream come true, but with a few wins under my belt, suddenly everyone wants a piece of me. And even though being in the spotlight has its perks—beautiful women, star treatment, more beautiful women—what really gets me sweating is the watchful gaze of my sexy-as-hell PR coach, Savannah Andrews. The catch? Her father is kind of my boss. . . .

Savannah: In my family, football is big business. When your dad owns an NFL franchise, you learn a thing or two about schmoozing, and from what I can tell, it’s not a skill in Jason Stone’s playbook. Sure, the veteran quarterback is literally larger than life. With broad shoulders, muscles on muscles, and a mouth made for kissing, he may be one of the hottest men in the league—and I should know. I’ve turned down enough players to start my own all-star team. But those guys just wanted to get close to my father. Meanwhile, Stone is getting temptingly close . . . to me.
