Cocky and self-assured, I’m confident when it comes to my skills both on stage and in the bedroom. Everything in my life is perfect, even if I am the last single man
standing in our famed rock band.
But it wasn’t always this way.
Jayla knew me before I hit it big. Back when I was a skinny teen, chasing dreams without a penny to my name. Now she’s back in my life and so much more than the girl I remember. Fiercely loyal, beautiful and badass. She walked out of my life before, and I won’t let that happen again.
They say some songs are better on the second take, and if there’s one thing I know for sure, this is our time for a replay.
Replay is the fourth and final book in the Off Track Records novels, but can also be read as a standalone. 

 

My review:

Austin is the guitarist in the band Three Ugly Guys (which has 4 members). Jayla is his former best friend who moved away when they were 16 and they never saw each other again. She is a former cop who now works for a security company. After a bomb attack at the arena where the band is about to play injures several crew members, including their head of security, Austin pushes for the label to hire Jayla’s company and her personally. Jayla has a lot of anger and resentment towards Austin, especially for upending her life for six weeks with no warning. As they rekindle their old friendship, and fight their growing feelings, they find out that the threat to the band is still very real.

I enjoyed the book, but didn’t LOVE it. Jayla is a kick-ass character. Austin was hard to warm up to. He is the kind of jokester who takes things just a bit too far than what is appropriate, and causes a lot of misunderstandings for himself and for others. He is definitely loyal, though, and has a good heart – once we finally got to see that.

I was pleasantly surprised that the one person I thought was involved in the attacks wasn’t, and glad to see him make peace with the band. I do wish the Brianna storyline would have been resolved in this book, especially since it appears to be the last of the series.

Overall, this was a good book. It just didn’t do “it” for me, whatever “it” is that makes me fall in love with the story and characters. But I did enjoy reading it.

Excerpt

I tip my chin up, letting my head fall back against his
stomach. I catch his grin and let my own lips curve up playfully. Or at least,
it starts that way. Under the heat of his stare and with his hands still moving
across my shoulders in deep, sure circles, my body tenses for an entirely
different reason.
His touch feels intimate.
The way he’s studying me from beneath those dark lashes is
intense. He doesn’t look away, and I couldn’t if I tried. “Honestly, Jay, what
can I do? You shouldn’t carry all this stress.”
“I—” want you to touch me. The words catch in my
throat and hammer in my chest. My pulse gallops and I press my legs together as
the need between them—the need for him—obliterates any rational thought.
I almost say those words aloud.
By the heat in his stare, I wonder if he feels it too.
“Jay,” he whispers. My name on his lips is full of the same
tortured longing I feel down to my core. We barely scratched the surface of
this sexual tension when we were teens, both too young and too naïve to fully
understand the power of it.
Now. Right here. I swear those same feelings have multiplied
and grown. It’s overwhelming. Terrifying as hell. And yet . . . I can’t help
but arch my back even more. I delight in the way his gaze drops to the neckline
of my shirt.
His eyes zero in on my chest and his touch becomes feather
light as his stare takes in the hard peaks of my nipples straining against the
soft cotton fabric. I want him to touch me there. To haul me off this chair and
into his arms. I need to taste his lips as they press against mine. Crave it.
“I have an idea,” he whispers so softly that if I weren’t
watching his lips I would have missed the words.
“Yeah?”
His hands brush along my arms, down to my elbows and then
back up, his fingers so close but not touching the swell of my breasts. “It’s
selfless on my part, because you know how giving I am.” He’s teasing. Joking.
But it doesn’t kill the chemistry that swirls between us. If anything, it only
adds charge to an already building momentum.
His hands feel good, but they’re not enough.
“Your idea?” My gaze waits for his.
“I want you, Jayla.”
“Oh.” Heat pools in my belly. My skin feels flush. And my
body, my body wants this and everything he wants to give.
His hands slide up the length of my neck, then still as they
cup my face. “I’ll make you feel better. I swear.” He tilts my chin up and my
back arches in response. His body leans down over mine, slowly closing the
space between our mouths.
“I don’t think that’s a good idea,” I murmur, completely
fascinated by the heat in his stare, and the way his tongue swipes across his
lips.
“Let me kiss you at least?” He lowers his mouth, his intent
as clear as his words. “I’ve been dying to taste those lips. To see if they’re
still the same.”
“Um . . .” I should feel caged in. Between the chair and the
table, his hands near my throat and his body behind mine, I expect my anxiety
to ruin this moment. Only it never comes. Instead, desire and attraction so
powerful flood my veins. I almost reach up and grab for him.
“One kiss?” He bends, closing the remaining space until
there isn’t more than shared breath between us. All I need to do is close the
space, to nod my consent, and his lips will crash on mine.

The Reality of Wright and Wrong by Leddy Harper Review + Giveaway

 

The Reality of Wright and Wrong, an all-new standalone romance that defies the odds by Leddy Harper is NOW LIVE!

 

“Save me and have me, fix me and I’m yours.”
What do you do when you catch your fiancé grinding on another woman? Well, if you’re me, you run off with a sexy, ink-covered tattoo artist who goes by the name Wrong.
Then you marry him after a week.
This isn’t a story of love at first sight—love didn’t come into play until after I had ruined it all. It’s the reality of what is right and what is wrong when it comes to soulmates.

My review:

This was different, and really good. Mercy is in town to surprise her fiance Jordan a few days early, but catches him out with another woman. Heartbroken, she is walking away from the bar when she is accosted by a homeless man and Brogan comes to her rescue. When she can’t find a place to stay he offers his guest room to her. Sparks fly, and on the day before Mercy flies back home to Ohio, they end up marrying at a courthouse.

So much happens in this book, and poor Mercy gets SO overwhelmed. She isn’t sure if she should believe Jordan, who insists that he wasn’t the guy in the bar. But she cannot deny the feelings she has for Brogan. She is also unprepared for the fact that he’s a reality TV star and their relationship being in the spotlight.

Brogan is a great character. He is so sure of himself and his beliefs. He is so supportive of Mercy. Stella, Mercy’s best friend, is hilarious. I love that she has Mercy’s back and flies halfway across the country to make sure she’s okay when she doesn’t answer her calls and texts.

Mercy and Brogan went about their relationship completely backwards, but it is so good to watch them get to their happily ever after. Nothing in this story is boring or slow.

A Model Fiance by Nikky Kaye Review + Giveaway

 

Title: A Model Fiancé
Author: Nikky Kaye
Genre: Contemporary Romance/Romantic Comedy

 Release Date: March 14, 2019

Blurb

 

There are a million reasons why I shouldn’t ask Audrey to pretend to be
my fiancée. For a start:
1.    She’s my best friend’s sexy little sister.
2.    She’ll have to travel around the world with me.
3.    The paparazzi will eat her alive.
4.    So will I. 
But I also have a million followers on social media who think we’re
already engaged, and there are millions of dollars at stake. 
So what have I got to lose?

 

My review:

Dev and Audrey’s older brother are best friends, and have known each other since childhood. Audrey was the annoying little sister following them everywhere. Then home for Christmas during college, Dev noticed Audrey wasn’t a little girl any more – except she was still too young.

As an adult, Dev has fallen into professional modeling and is very successful. He is in Vegas for the brother’s wedding, and is face to face with the fact that his crush on Audrey hasn’t gone anywhere. An accident and misunderstanding goes viral, and now the world thinks Dev and Audrey are engaged. A contract Dev has been pursuing is offered with his change of status, so he asks Audrey to pretend for a while.

I enjoyed this book. Audrey is having a crisis of identity, and Dev’s offer is just what she needs to be able to find her way. Dev has been unsatisfied with being just a pretty face, and Audrey gives him something that he’s been missing. They are so good together.

Excerpt
“Tell me, Audrey,” he murmured softly in my ear, “what’s one habit you
wish you could break?”
Half a dozen things other flashed through my mind—using a fork and knife for my pizza, flossing my teeth at night while watching TV in bed, other things that irritated my ex. Maybe the biggest habit I needed to break was falling for the wrong men, but even that wasn’t a habit. Once. It happened once. I just happened to do it Olympic-style, and lost everything. I bit my lip—another habit—before blurting out,
“I wish I was more spontaneous.”
Once my life didn’t go to plan with my parents’ death, I made damn sure I planned the rest. It hadn’t worked out. Was it karma? Fate? The gods laughing at me?
“You seemed pretty… free-spirited earlier.”
Was this flirting? “Well, you know,” I laughed uneasily. “What happens in Vegas…”
My earlier show in the lobby with the champagne bottle was the craziest I’d probably acted since… well, ever. I couldn’t deny that it was liberating.
Maybe I needed to be a little wilder.
Maybe I needed to have a fling.
Maybe I needed to remind myself that one of the hottest men in the world was sitting close enough to irradiate my brain cells and make me think naughty thoughts.
The taxi wasn’t so small that we needed to sit hip-to-hip and shoulder-to-shoulder.  His breath was hot at the top of my ear, and I knew that if I just turned my head and tilted my chin…
I shook my head slightly, unable to even look him in the eye. I didn’t have the guts. Dev wasn’t an adolescent boy anymore. Now he probably dated supermodels and movie stars. And me? I had no game. Hell, I’d already lost a few turns in the Game of Life.
“What about you?” I asked him as the car stopped.
 “What about me?” he replied.
He pressed closer, reminding me that I needed to get out of the car before he could. I wriggled over, trying to keep my skirt down and my shoes from slipping off.
Then I made the mistake of turning my head and meeting his gaze, like a kid who can’t help but look at the sun during an eclipse. His lips curved as he leaned his body into mine to make for the door. My voice was needlessly breathless when I asked
him, “Do you have a habit you wish you could stop?”
“Compulsive kissing.”
