From My Best Friend’s Honeymoon by Grahame Claire

“What do you mean you aren’t going to make the flight?”

The man across the narrow aisle of the plane stared wide-eyed at my raised voice even as the woman next to him chattered away. I pressed the phone to my ear and angled away from him as Roxy continued to make excuses.

“Mr. Bubbles escaped. I’d think you’d be more concerned.” Seriously? Roxy was giving me a guilt trip?

“That cat only moves to eat, so don’t tell me that the lazy thing actually ventured out of your house.” I gripped the phone so tightly in my hand, pain shot through my joints.

“Also, somebody pulled the fire alarm at the library.” Considering it was eight in the morning on a Sunday and we didn’t open the library until one, I highly doubted it.

“This isn’t fifty excuses to give your best friend for leaving her alone on your honeymoon.” The lady in front of me whipped around and flashed a scathing look. I smiled apologetically and lowered my voice. “If you aren’t on this plane by the time it takes off—”

“Ladies and gentlemen, please fasten your seatbelts. Flight crew, secure the door.”

“As soon as I can get another flight, I’ll be right behind you,” Roxy promised.

“I can’t believe you overslept.” She was perpetually late to everything. Why I was surprised she missed the flight, especially after what went down at her wedding yesterday, I didn’t know.

“Um…well…actually, I didn’t.”

“Don’t throw Mr. Bubbles under the bus again.”

“Fine. I was up all night doing unspeakable things to Marco,” she said in a rush.

“The best man?!” I squeaked.

“Miss, please put away your phone,” a passing flight attendant said in a polite but don’t-cross-me kind of way.

I nodded and gave her a tight smile. As soon as she moved on, I pinned the phone to my face as Roxy tried to explain herself.

“I got left at the altar. I deserved to have some fun.”

Hook Shot by Kennedy Ryan Review + Giveaway

Hook Shot - RB banner.jpg

“This book was utter perfection! Hook Shot is full of emotion, sizzle and a breathtaking romance. It is a book I will never forget and one I will revisit often to get swept away in its magic.”- Devney Perry, USA Today bestselling author

Hook Shot, a deeply emotional standalone set in the worlds of professional basketball and high fashion from Kennedy Ryan, is available now and FREE in Kindle Unlimited!


Enter the Release Giveaway for a $50 Gift Card +Signed HOOK SHOT Paperback here:

Divorced. Single dad. Traded to a losing squad.

Cheated on, betrayed, exposed.

My perfect life blew up in my face and I’m still picking up the pieces.

The last thing I need is her.

A wildflower. A storm. A woman I can’t resist.

Lotus DuPree is a kick to my gut and a wrench in my plans

from the moment our eyes meet.

I promised myself I wouldn’t trust a woman again,

but I’ve never wanted anyone the way I want Lo.

She’s not the plan I made, but she’s the risk I have to take.

A warrior. A baller. The one they call Gladiator.

Kenan Ross charged into my life smelling all good, looking even better and snatching my breath from the moment we met.

The last thing I need is him.

I’m working on me. Facing my pain and conquering my demons.

I’ve seen what trusting a man gets you.

Don’t. Have. Time. For. This.

But he just keeps coming for me.

Keeps knocking down my defenses and stealing my excuses

one by one.

He never gives up, and now…I’m not sure I want him to.

My review:

This book is so much more than I expected.

Lotus is a child of New Orleans working in high fashion in New York City. The design house is creating a new type of wearable technology and wants NBA player Kenan to be the spokesperson. Kenan and Lotus have met before, since her cousin Iris is married to his teammate August.  She knows she is attracted to him, but is taking time away from men to work on herself and deal with parts of her past she’s tried to bury her whole life. Kenan is freshly out of a nasty divorce where he was betrayed on many levels by his ex-wife, the media, and people he thought were friends. He wants to protect his heart, and his daughter, by not jumping into a relationship. They decide to be friends, but true love cannot be stopped.

So much happens in this book. There is humor and joy and love and friendship, but also deep, emotional pain and tragedy. Ultimately there is also healing. There is a beautiful blending of beliefs. There is power. When Lotus was a child, she and Mimi had a conversation about the powerful thunderstorm that had Lotus captivated. When Mimi commented that most people are afraid of storms and Lotus stated that she was not, Mimi replied simply “Of course not, you are the storm.” That is perfectly Lotus. She may be tiny but she is strong and powerful and mighty. She has generations of fire in her veins and lightning in her eyes.

I feel like I could go on about this book for pages and pages, yet at the same time I don’t want to tell anything because I don’t want to give anything away. This book is an experience, though. And definitely one worth reading.

Release Date: April 18, 2019
Alister Bennet
Loyal, reliable… predictable even, I’ve always done what’s expected of
me. Stay out of trouble, get my teaching degree and build a respectable career
as a college professor. The job comes with a long list of rules and at the top
of that list is no fraternizing with students. Following the rules seemed easy
enough, until a dark, tortured boy sat outside my office waiting for me. His
voice told me it was his grade he was worried about, but the deep onyx pools of
his eyes told me more as they shook the solid ground I’d always stood on.
Am I willing to risk my career, my carefully built reputation, to help
one so filled with pain I can taste it?
Benjamin Wallace
Rejected, abused, and abandoned my entire life, all I’ve ever wanted was
to be accepted, loved even. I thought going to college on a scholarship would
be my ticket out of hell, but nothing good ever comes without a price. As
graduation nears I find myself drawn to the mysterious professor like a moth to
a flame. Just one meeting with the man that has been staring in my dreams has
my soul screaming for him to hold me, comfort me. A relationship isn’t just
frowned upon, it’s forbidden, but the heart doesn’t always know the difference.
Can I trust my mangled heart in his perfect life when my past repeats
itself or will he destroy what is left of me?
*Author’s note: This is an MM teacher-student romance with themes
including abuse and kidnapping. This story ends with a HEA.*

Who knew a cooking show could get so messy?
Elle Fierro
All I have to do is appear as a judge on this cooking show in Hollywood and my restaurant will open to rave reviews. Pretty much my lifelong dream. What I absolutely shouldn’t do is sleep with one of the contestants and ruin everything I’ve
worked so hard for. But he gives good hugs, makes me laugh, fills out a simple T-shirt like nobody’s business, and is sweeter than the maple syrup he dripped all over my naked body last night…
Austin Cox
I may have been drunk when I applied to be on that reality cooking show, which is why it’s hard to believe I’m here. What’s even harder to believe is that Elle, with her
painted red lips and fiery disposition, is in my bed and making me forget I need to win this damn show to get my little sister out of the foster care system.
When Elle throws me under the bus to realize her dream, will our love burn out or will we find the missing ingredient to happiness?

Just Neighbors by Charity Ferrell


Title: Just Neighbors

Series: Blue Beech #4

Author: Charity Ferrell
Genre: New Adult/Enemies-to-Lovers Romance

 Release Date: March 26, 2019



Every day, my neighbor tells me to have a good morning.
Every day, I tell him to f*ck off.
Kyle Lane is the town’s hottest cop.
He’s also the man I’ve despised since high school.
Each morning, he stands on his porch with an annoying smirk on his
perfect face.
He’s made it his life’s mission to get under my skin.
Until one day, he’s no longer on his porch but on mine.
He claims he wants to redeem himself for ruining my reputation.
My instincts tell me to stay away, but with each morning he shows up,
it becomes harder and harder to resist his charm.
I was never supposed to fall in love with my neighbor and once he finds
out my secret, we’ll forever be enemies.


My review:


Despite what it seems from the blurb and cover, this is not a light, fun read full of flirty banter and enemies-to-lovers goodness. Don’t get me wrong, because there is definitely plenty of that, especially in the beginning, but it has SO MUCH MORE. Chloe and Kyle both grew up in their small town; Kyle is the son of the mayor and Chloe is the daughter of a neglectful drug-addicted mother who grew up in a trailer park on the outskirts of town. We know early on that something happened between them in high school that has led to Chloe hating Kyle with everything she has, and hating the attraction she feels toward him.

But like I said, there is so much more. Chloe’s childhood was heartbreaking. Her mother and sister were terrible people, and her sister is still the cause of most of Chloe’s stress. She followed in their mother’s footsteps and is addicted to drugs and alcohol and horrible relationships, and neglecting her two children, teenage Trey and 4 year old Gloria. Their family has secrets, and when they come to light the whole town feels the repercussions. Then when tragedy strikes, the people affected by the secrets are able to help each other heal.

I fully expected this to be a humorous rom-com, but this book made me cry. Really cry, not just tear up a little. The humor is there, but the pure heartbreak just killed me. Thank goodness we did get our happily ever after to make it a little better but this book will be in my head for a very long time.

Shattered With You by J Kenner


Shattered With You, the first in the all-new Stark Security series of standalones, from New York Times bestselling author J. Kenner, is available now!


With his lethal skills and criminal connections, former British agent Quincy Radcliffe has fast become a key asset at the newly formed Stark Security. But Quincy isn’t the man he appears to be.

When the woman whose body he once worshipped and whose heart he broke pleads for his help, Quincy knows he must either turn his back on her or risk revealing his dark secrets to the one woman who can—and will—tear open his old wounds.

For years, struggling actress Eliza Tucker has tried to forget the decadent weeks she shared with Quincy Radcliffe. His smoldering good looks had drawn her in, while his British charm had enchanted her. But it was the wildness of his seduction and the ferocity of his passion that captured her. She’d given herself to him—and he’d shattered her like glass when he’d walked away.

Now, he’s the only person who can help find her missing sister. She’ll use him because she has too. She’ll pay any sensual price he demands. But she won’t fall for him again.

My review:

This was an entertaining book. Quincy is a former MI6 agent working for the  newly formed Stark Security Agency, going undercover, along with his partner Denise, at a party trying to get information to stop a sex trafficking ring and save a 13 year old princess who was kidnapped and being sold. He unexpectedly sees Eliza at the party, thinking she is so desperate for money she is working as a call girl although she is also undercover trying to find her missing sister. Almost five years previously he and Eliza had a relationship while she was living in London, but the job took him away from her, leaving them both heartbroken and her angry. Unfortunately, they must work together to find her sister and the princess.

There is a lot of action and excitement in this book, along with the romance. The main story is the missing princess and sister. There are some intense scenes, too. When we find out what happened to Quincy on the mission that took him away from Eliza in London… wow. And the villain reveal and fight at the end was insane. Even better, I was actually surprised by who the villain actually was! I had predicted it would be a different person. And once Eliza and Quincy talk out what happened when their relationship ended, they are able to come to terms with their feelings and move forward in a healthy way.

This is a great book, but not a light easy read by any means. And the ending sets up the next book well, too. I am excited to read Denise’s story after getting to know her in this book.

Book 1, Wild King

My review:

Holy mother of cliffhangers! I kept tapping my Kindle, not able to figure out why the page wasn’t turning and finally realized it was the end. Noooooo!
The entire book was totally worth it, though. I just hope book 3 is finished quickly!
We’ve followed Clara and Alexander from the beginning, when they were dating to engaged to a new family who rise to King and Queen much more suddenly than expected. Now with this new series, we get to see them more comfortable in their new roles and yet still coming to terms being a married couple with kids along with ruling England.
I have always loved Clara but she has really come into her own in this book. She is livid, understandably, at this last secret X has been keeping from her and she makes him work for every scrap of forgiveness she may give. And it’s about time. Alexander is still working on the fact that while the weight of the country may rest on his shoulders, he has an equal partner to share ALL his burdens and keeping secrets to “protect” her always backfires. Clara is not a weak woman who needs protecting from truths.
The addition of the family member who was not actually dead adds so much to their story! It was a rocky reentry for sure but at the end things were looking up for her and her place in the family.
Well done, Ms Lee. I can’t wait to read the next installment.

Heart Throb by Magan Vernon



Title: HeartThrob
Series: Heart Duet #1
Author: Magan Vernon
Genre: Romantic Comedy
Release Date: March 25, 2019
He was just another dad at my daughter’s school.
Another very hot, former teen heartthrob dad.
One I couldn’t get involved with.
Lennox Reign was the hottest teen star over fifteen years ago. Now,
he’s staring me daggers across the principal’s office.
Not my fault my daughter got in trouble the first day of school and I
seem to have ‘bad mom’ stamped on my forehead.
But now not only do I have to see Lennox and his very grown-up body now
at school drop off, but we’re working together on the school bake sale.
If he could just stop being a brooding heartbreaker for like two
He says he wants to keep the past in the past and move forward with his
life, but the closer we get and the more I uncover, the more I can’t help
falling for the former actor.
The one who I know could easily break me.
And he will.
HeartThrob is told from the Female POV

My review:

First: Cliffhanger warning! This is book one of a two-part duet; this one is from Rachel’s point of view and part 2 is from Lennox’s point of view.
Rachel is a single mother who has moved in with her parents to save money as she rebuilds her life and business after divorce. On her daughter Ariana’s first day at a new private school, she makes friends with another girl in her class and they accidentally clog the classroom bathroom’s toilet and cause a flood resulting in a visit to the principal’s office. Rachel is surprised to see the father of the friend is Lennox Reign, former teen heartthrob and object of Rachel’s teenage crush. Despite their daughters becoming best friends, Rachel and Lennox can’t seem to get along. When they are paired together to head the school’s bake sale fundraiser, though, things start to change between them. Until a misunderstanding goes viral and changes everything.
I did enjoy this book, even though there was no resolution and a new plot twist was introduced on the last page. I know the second book is coming soon so I can be patient. Maybe.
Rachel is a great character. She’s sassy and independent and a fantastic mother. Her ex-husband was horrible but when she finally stands up to him I was cheering her on. Lennox helped her to see how the ex was treating her and that was an invaluable lesson no matter the outcome of their relationship. The girls are adorable third graders. I was also pleasantly surprised by Amy’s character. I was anticipating her to be a “Mean Girls mommy” but she ended up completely opposite of that and a good friend to Rachel.
I can’t wait to read the conclusion to this story. If part 2 is as good as part 1 we will not be disappointed.

“Well, accidents happen, Mr. Reign. You weren’t the only one
called out of work, and I’m sure the girls both learned their lesson.” I forced
a smile, hoping he’d drop the hard-ass look.
No such luck.
I glanced at the principal out of the corner of my eye, hoping she’d have something to say. But before she could even open her mouth, the guy spoke again.
“Yes, we can hope this doesn’t happen again. Make sure your daughter knows that.”
I whipped my head around. “Excuse me? You think my daughter, out of the blue, on her first day, decided ‘Hey, let’s try and unclog a toilet and flood the bathroom!’” 
He smirked, the only crack in his exterior. “Never happened before with my daughter and she’s been going here since preschool.”
This guy had some nerve.
“Yeah, well, people change. Not everyone can solve kids’ problems in twenty minutes with a laugh track.” The words flew out of my lips before I could take them back.
I really needed to learn how to use a filter.
“You really just used a sitcom line?” He raised an eyebrow.
“Well, you are Lennox Reign, aren’t you? Former poster boy, even with your own milk mustache campaign? I’m sure you raised enough hell as a teen star,” I spat.
He shook his head, blowing a breath of air out of his nose as he muttered, “Un-fucking-believable.”
Finally, the principal walked around her desk, putting her hands out. “Okay, I think that’s enough. Both of your daughters have been given a warning, and we will make sure this doesn’t happen again. Okay? No need for language.”
“You’re right, Ambro. Sorry for getting out of hand,” Lennox said, offering her a smile but not even glancing in my direction.

The Story of Home by Krista Sandor Review + Giveaway



Title: The Story of Home
Series: Langley Park #5
Author: Krista Sandor
Genre: Romantic Suspense/Contemporary Romance
Release Date: March 24, 2019
Sam Sinclair has a secret.
A secret dark enough to bring Zoe Stein to her knees.
A secret that’s kept him from being more than just her friend.
But not all secrets stay buried, especially in the town of Langley Park.
Zoe is done.
Done with Sam.
Done waiting for him to realize she’s in love with him.
Done wondering why he’s kept her at arm’s length.
Done remembering the two steamy nights they shared years ago.
Zoe gets the chance to right a wrong from her past, and Sam is the only one who can help her uncover the truth. Their passion reignites, but is their love enough to
overcome the secrets that could tear them apart?
The Story of Home is a sexy standalone romance in the Langley Park Series.


My review:

Zoe is a reporter in Washington DC who runs a story on abuse and neglect at a girls’ detention center. When her source recants and is discredited, she is fired. The same day, a tragedy sends her home to Langley Park to help her family. When she learns of similar allegations at the nearby facility owned by the same company, she takes the opportunity to make up for the past and save the girls.

I liked that there was so much more to this book than the main romance (which seems to have played a secondary role in my reading experience).  Zoe is smart and fearless, and the support her friends show is amazing. The romance part was sweet – Sam is carrying a lot of guilt and feels like he doesn’t deserve to be loved and be happy, but Zoe is able to break through that and help him heal. One thing that bugged me, though – they are in a smallish town. How is it that literally no one knew what happened to Kara?

This was a really good read. It’s a standalone in a series, and while the others are not necessary to enjoy this one, it’s nice to “catch up” with past characters. This book follows The Measure of Home, reviewed here.

Sam pressed Zoe’s back into the door, and she tilted her head to meet his kiss. Their lips came together, and she sighed, the sweet pull of desire and relief and love manifesting itself with every lick, every brush of skin on skin.
“Let’s get inside. I have all sorts of ideas about what we can do with a can of whipped cream.”
“Tell me you’ve got chocolate syrup in there, too.”
“I’ve got the biggest container they make.”
“Do you have ice cream?”
“Strawberry and chocolate,” he answered, taking her earlobe between his teeth.
“And Maraschino cherries?” she purred.
“What kind of freak do you think I am? An ice cream sundae without a cherry on top? Of course, I’ve got Maraschino cherries.”
She bit his lip. “What are you waiting for? Let’s go have the naughtiest ice cream party Langley Park’s ever seen.”
