The bad boy …

Growing up, Nicholas Hawkins was always the life of the party, and that hasn't changed. The only difference is that now he gets paid to do it—literally. He's the last man standing, so to speak, from his group of friends of Saddles & Racks. He plans to be a male escort for as long as the women still book dates with him, and he hopes that's for many, many, many more years.

The nerd …

Ashleigh James got the brains when it came to her and her twin sister, Everleigh. Growing up, all the boys wanted to date the pretty sister, and that didn't change when Ashleigh brought home her boyfriend during college. Everleigh wasted no time hooking up with Ashleigh's beau, leaving the sisters estranged for several years until Ashleigh receives her sister’s wedding invitation. Turns out, Everleigh is marrying the man she stole—and in Fiji no less.

The ruse …

Not wanting to show up alone, Ashleigh's best friend talks her into hiring a male escort to bring with her to paradise. A bad boy who is the complete opposite of her ex. Since Nick is the last to fall, his friends bet him that he'll find love during the weeklong trip. Neither one expects anything to happen except nightly fun while pretending they're dating. When the attraction between the two is undeniable, they both fight their desire toward each other because one can't fall for someone they hired to date, and the other can't lose a bet.

The Gladiator’s Downfall
Kristen Banet
(Age of the Andinna #1)
Publication date: December 14th 2018
Genres: Adult, Fantasy, Reverse Harem
Mave knows where she stands in life.
She’s an Andinna. A member of the winged, horned, and tailed warrior race that the Elvasi Empire defeated in the Hundred Year War and then enslaved. She’s a slave, and has been one for a thousand years, the personal property of the Empress of the Elvasi Empire, since the end of the War. She’s a gladiator, thrown onto the sands of the Colosseum to die, though it backfired on those who wanted her dead. She’s the Champion of the Colosseum, and has been for roughly nine hundred years.
All of these things have marked her as an outcast among her own people. Hated, distrusted, and despised, she knows the name of her people, but not much else.
But she knows where she stands. Keeping her head down and her blades sharp has carried her this far, and she refuses to acknowledge the deepest wishes she holds in her heart. Those will only get her killed.
Alone, she’s stood against everything they have ever thrown at her, refusing to give them what they want.
What Mave doesn’t know is that it’s all about to change.

Book Blitz! One Hot Texas Summer (Prentice Brothers of Sweet Ridge #1) by Nicole Flockton

One Hot Texas Summer
Nicole Flockton
(Prentice Brothers of Sweet Ridge #1)
Published by: Tule Publishing
Publication date: May 26th 2020
Genres: Adult, Contemporary, Romance
She’s been fooled before by sweet words and hot kisses
Kelly Turner loves being a florist, and being asked to take the lead on the new site for the town’s festival is an honor. If only she didn’t have to work closely with the town player, Tate Prentice. After being burned once by a serial cheater, her inconvenient attraction toward Tate needs to be nipped in the bud.
Tate Prentice’s focus is on ensuring his father recovers fully from his stroke and making sure the family’s peach farm continues to thrive. When his brother nominates the farm to be the satellite site for the festival, he’s less than impressed. The only good thing is he’ll be working with Kelly – even though he knows she’ll never give him a second glance, not with his reputation.
The more time Kelly spends with Tate, the more she sees the man behind the reputation. Can she trust her instincts, or will her heart be broken once again?
Outside, the sounds of summer surrounded them. Crick- ets trilled, calling for company. A light veil of humidity hung in the air, not quite stifling yet. Come July and August, humidity would be heavy and unpleasant. Hopefully, Mother Nature would play nice for Founders’ Day and make the days and evenings pleasant.
“Where did you park your car?” he asked.
“Behind the shop.”
“Okay.” Tate headed in that direction, aware that he still had his arm around Kelly’s shoulders. Interesting. Why hadn’t she shaken him off? Not that he was complaining. She fit snugly, and he could get used to it.
A second later, she took a step to the right and his arm slipped to his side. The universe liked to give and then take away from him pretty quickly.
“You don’t have to walk me to my car, Tate. I’m a big girl and can get there by myself. The town is safe.”
He shoved his hands in his pocket to stop from reaching for her again. “I’m aware of that, but Dad would box my ears if he knew I’d let you walk alone after spending the evening with you.”
“Ahh, the gentlemanly gestures. It’s kind of sad they’re dying out.”
“You sound like you don’t want that to happen. You do know you just told me I didn’t have to do one of those gentlemanly gestures with dinner.”
She shrugged. “I have mixed feelings. I’ve been on my own for a long time. I’m an independent business owner. I’m in charge of my own life. And I love that, but when I listen to Mom talk about the early days of her and Dad’s courtship, it kind of makes me sad that some of those traditions are being lost. Some days, I’d like to experience it, and other days I don’t.”
Tate itched to rest his arm on her lower back as they walked down the darkened alley by her shop. Would this be one of those gestures she wanted? He compromised and raised his hand to her lower back, not touching but close enough that he could if she needed it. “I’m sure in time a balance will be struck that will please everyone.”
“I hope so,” she murmured as they stopped by her car, unlocking it. The flashing lights brightened the night for a heartbeat.
Deciding to risk it, he leaned around her and opened the door for her. “I had a really nice evening tonight, Kel. Thanks for asking me to join you.”
She looked up at him, the action bringing her face closer to his. In the muted glow from the only light in the parking lot, he caught the way her tongue darted out to moisten her lips. Tate bit back a groan. Memories from earlier in the day when he’d been tempted to kiss her in his kitchen slammed into him. His blood heated and his lower body tightened in his jeans.
He didn’t miss the increase in her breathing. “Kel?” he asked, sure of what he wanted but not wanting to assume she wanted the same thing.
“Tate,” she whispered and swayed a fraction toward him.
He rested his hand on her hip and lowered his head, keeping his eyes open. If she pulled back, he would give her space. Only she raised her face and their lips met.

New Review! One Click Love (Hot in the City #2) by T Gephart 4 Cranky Stars

One Click Love (Hot in the City #2)One Click Love by T. Gephart
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

4 Cranky Stars

Ahh dating in the age of online dating sites. It must be harder to navigate when you’re in your forties running a fifty/fifty chance of encountering a weirdo or a prince charming. In One Click Love that is the case for Hayden and Mack. Hayden being a recent divorcee who is so down on herself for gaining a few pounds but smart enough to know she deserves better than her ex husband Cooper. Years of becoming complacent and doing everything to make her husband happy and recognize his dreams she lost herself along the way. Her sister in law set up a dating profile and it’s here she meets Mack. She wants a one-night stand or so she thinks. Mack is fire chief in his forties. His last marriage was a disaster and it seems she was the wicked witch of the east as Riley calls her. When Quinn sets up a profile for him, he accepts it begrudgingly. When Hayden’s message pops up, he sees this beautiful woman and can't wait to meet her. I mean come on he’s a catch! In his forties and in shape with a good career and can bake a souffle that could rival a fancy chef. He notices that Hayden has insecurities but slowly proves to her that she is beautiful and worthy of his love.

I loved that Hayden was my age. I haven’t read many books like that. I felt a kind of kinship with her but I’m happy in my marriage and oddly enough I did meet me husband on social media as well. I knew Mack was going to be a good guy. He is so dedicated to Riley that I just knew there was a heart under there. He just wanted to be loved. This book is a little steamy. Mack has a mouth on him. Someone fetch me a fan. I liked that Riley finally found her worth and learned to love herself. I did like this series it’s cute and steamy and has something for everyone.

New Review! Send Me Crazy (Hot in the City #1) by T. Gephart 4.5 Cranky Stars

Send Me Crazy (Hot in the City #1)Send Me Crazy by T. Gephart
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

4.5 Cranky Stars

It all started with a pair of lacy panties mailed to the wrong address to help her best friend get the guy of her dreams. It only got crazier from there when Quinn meets the recipient of those undies. Between her craziness and his hero status it’s a wild ride for sure. Quinn is a little bit of all of us deep down and Riley is a hero with a big heart and a not so nice upbringing.

I really liked Quinn. She was impulsive and snarky. I admired her take life by the horns mentality even if it meant she missed out on a significant other. She is a lifestyle photographer catching all the momentous occasions, but she knows that she doesn’t want that for herself. Riley is a fireman who lives and breathes his job. He recognizes the crazy in Quinn and loves it. These two are a match made in heaven I suppose. Every crazy girl needs a more down to earth guy to bring her down. I even liked her friend Karli and Panties Brad. I can’t wait to read the next book!

New Review! The Rise of Saint by Bella J 5 Cranky Stars

The Rise of SaintThe Rise of Saint by Bella J.
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

5 Cranky Stars

What a fabulous read this was, it drew you right in and talk about tense.

Mila had lived in foster homes for most of her life. Never knowing who she was. She lived mainly on the streets now and made friends with a young man called Brad. Little did she know that she was targeted to be given to Saint. What can I say about Saint, mean, rich, Italian, sadistic the list goes on. Mila knew that she was being used but her body wanted him it didn't mean she wanted him it was just her body. Saint was evil in the romantic sides of things. Deep down he had feelings growing for Mila but wouldn't let them out.

Can't wait to read next book as it was left on an amazing cliffhanger!

Release Blitz! Birdy (Upper Echeleon Duet #1) by Dee Garcia

  BIRDY (Upper Echelon Duet #1) by Dee Garcia Release Date: May 26th Genre: Mafia Romance/Romantic Suspense   Add to Goodreads:   Watch theTrailer:       AVAILABLE NOW ON ALL RETAILERS!   DOWNLOAD TODAY!     Blurb: Come to the United States, they said. Freedom and endless opportunities for all, they said. So we did—made the ninety-mile trek overseas from Havana to Key West. What they didn’t tell us was how hard these supposed opportunities would be to obtain when you’re an illegal alien. A fact that forced both my brother and I onto a dark path in an effort to help our family. The difference between Tommy and I? He didn’t get caught. Had I stayed away from Arcángel—the illusive, faceless mastermind behind the Upper Echelon—I might not have gotten caught either. Now, I’m paying the price, rotting away at the hands of the judicial system and facing possible deportation after serving my time. Can’t get worse, right? Wrong. Enter Andrés Bala—the new C.O. at the Annex who fits the tall, dark, and handsome stereotype to a T. It’s clear the man wants me, and I don’t understand why. Why I want him. I’m a criminal...he strives for justice. So wrong yet so right, we end up crossing the line, and after a sneaky, whirlwind affair, he vows to wait for me. The question now is: can Andrés handle la Jefa outside the confines of her cage?           About the Author: Self-published dark romance author Dee Garcia was born and raised in Miami, Florida. A voracious fan of romance novels and long time lover of the written word, her mission is to craft unique, compelling, and deliciously dark stories that will give her readers a thrilling escape from the monotony of everyday reality.
