Blurb
One stolen moment. That’s all it took to change everything.


The sweet girl next door, Shay Steele, knows better than to set eyes on
Three Rivers’ bad boy, Luke Rogers. With three alpha brothers determined to
keep her from ever dating, it’s not like she would even have a
chance with their best friend and local football hero. But when Luke
starts paying attention to her, she thinks her dreams may finally come
true.

Luke knows Shay is off limits but he just can’t seem to stay away from the
feisty brunette. Besides, a little secret—and a lot of kissing—never hurt
anyone. Right?

Lies and secrets, however, never seem to stay hidden for long. When
their newfound romance is discovered, not everyone is happy to hear about it
and worse yet, they’re not afraid to pull the trigger.

Review: Against the Boards by Samantha Lind

 

Title: Against the Boards
Series: Indianapolis Eagles #5
Author: Samantha Lind
Genre: Contemporary Sports Romance

Release Date: February 21, 2019

Reese Blackwood
I’m called America’s sweetheart.
They say I have the voice of an angel.
I almost gave all that up, thanks to a traumatic experience at the start of my career. Instead of letting it define me, I chose to rise above. I showed everyone what a woman on a mission could accomplish, and now I’m living my dream.
After one chance meeting, my entire world changes. Austin is every woman’s fantasy, and he wants me. While the attraction is there for me as well, I don’t need any distractions right now.

Austin Jones

Focused.
Driven.
I’m the man I am today because I never let the idea of settling down disrupt being the best I can during my hockey career.
But then Reese floats into my life and everything changes, and now all I want to do is pin her against the boards.
They say opposites attract. You can’t get more opposite than Country Music’s hottest
female singer and a hockey player from Canada. With competing travel schedules,
our instant attraction appears to be doomed from the start. Can it really be love? Or is it just a hot ice-melting fling?

 

My review:

This was two of my favorite tropes in one book! Reese is a rising star, a Grammy nominated singer who is on tour. The sister of her drummer works for the Indianapolis professional hockey team, and when she and her band are performing in Indy they get to meet some of the team members, including Austin. Reese and Austin hit it off, but she is touring the US and soon Europe, and he’s playing in the NHL. How can they have a relationship when they are both on the road all the time?

This was such a good story! One thing I loved was that there is no unneccessary drama. No pseudo breakup and angst. Reese and Austin are so supportive of each other and their careers. Both sets of parents were adorable, and I LOVED Reese’s Nana. I would happily read an entire book of just Nana!

This is a happy story with low drama and all the good feelings.

What He Never Knew by Kandi Steiner

WHNK - RB banner.jpg

What He Never Knew, a standalone teacher/student romance in the What He Doesn’t Know series by bestselling author Kandi Steiner is live!

WHNK Cover.png

I never learn my lesson.

And I always want what I can’t have.

When Sarah Henderson walks into my life, I tell myself she’s off limits. She’s my student, sixteen years younger than me, and my boss’s niece. It doesn’t matter that I see the same pain reflected in her eyes that I have in my own, or that the dead organ better known as my heart kicks to life when she’s around.

I’ve been here before, and I know how this ends.

It’s been two years since I fell for the last woman I knew I couldn’t have, the one with the ring on her finger that I chose to ignore.

Two years of trying to overcome that heartache when Sarah slides into my life.

Another woman I can’t have. Another woman I can’t stop myself from wanting.

I never learn my lesson, but with a constant reminder of how that last forbidden love burned, I think I’ve finally learned this one.

This time, I won’t chase what’s off limits.

This time, I’m staying away.

And I’ll keep telling myself that until I believe it.

My review:

I admit when I first read the description of this book I was torn. The age difference between Reece and Sarah is 16 years and the cover model doesn’t look like he’s over 30. But knowing a book with a minor in this position wouldn’t be so openly promoted (thank goodness!!) I read it. And I’m so glad I did.

Sarah is a 21 year old college senior, one semester away from graduating when she is the victim of a horrifying crime. When she isn’t believed, she leaves school never to return. She goes home to Atlanta and changes everything about herself – the books she reads, her wardrobe, and even shaves her head. She ends up in Philadelphia staying with her aunt and uncle to study under well known pianist Reece, who teaches at the school where her uncle is headmaster. They recognize the trauma in each other but he hesitates to move past friendship and teacher/student and her trauma won’t allow her to go further.

This book was so hard to put down. It’s a beautiful slow burn love story – they both have a lot of baggage to unpack and resolve before anything can happen. But I loved every bit of this book.

Two passages I highlighted because they really spoke to me:

The truth was there was no winning – not when you’d been raped. Not when the first man to ever touch you did so without asking permission, without kissing you first, without telling you he loved you. On that cold, wet, tile floor of my dorm room shower, I realized my home had been full of monsters all along. I’d just never seen them before. And now that I had, there was no going back. I was the girl who cried wolf. But I vowed to myself that I would not be the girl who let the wolf win.

 

She was quiet, but in a way only a fire can be.

The first is from the prologue and it is so powerful. It really speaks to Sarah’s strength and character. The second was from chapter 3, when Reece and Sarah are first getting to know each other. He has no idea what she has been through in her life, but can see the fire inside her so clearly.

I definitely recommend this book.

About Kandi:

Kandi Steiner is a bestselling author and whiskey connoisseur living in Tampa, FL. Best known for writing “emotional rollercoaster” stories, she loves bringing flawed characters to life and writing about real, raw romance — in all its forms. No two Kandi Steiner books are the same, and if you’re a lover of angsty, emotional, and inspirational reads, she’s your gal.

An alumna of the University of Central Florida, Kandi graduated with a double major in Creative Writing and Advertising/PR with a minor in Women’s Studies. She started writing back in the 4th grade after reading the first Harry Potter installment. In 6th grade, she wrote and edited her own newspaper and distributed to her classmates. Eventually, the principal caught on and the newspaper was quickly halted, though Kandi tried fighting for her “freedom of press.” She took particular interest in writing romance after college, as she has always been a diehard hopeless romantic, and likes to highlight all the challenges of love as well as the triumphs.

When Kandi isn’t writing, you can find her reading books of all kinds, talking with her extremely vocal cat, and spending time with her friends and family. She enjoys live music, traveling, anything heavy in carbs, beach days, movie marathons, craft beer and sweet wine — not necessarily in that order.
