Parental Guidance by Avery Flynn

“A fantastically fun, HOT love story.” – Kendall Ryan, New York Times bestselling author

Parental Guidance, an all-new, sexy and laugh-out-loud romantic comedy from Wall Street Journal bestselling author Avery Flynn, is available now!

ParentalGuidance_1600.jpg

All I want is to play hockey on the Ice Knights, instead, I’m in a viral video for all the wrong reasons and my mom—yes, my mom—has taken over my dating apps. Then, when I think it can’t get any worse, the fates deliver Zara Ambrose, a five-feet-nothing redhead with more freckles than inches and who’d rather be anywhere other than on a date with me.

Now a bet with her friends and my PR nightmare have us both stuck in this go-on-five-dates-with-the-same-person hell situation. But if we band together, we can get the whole thing over with and go on with our lives. It’s perfect! No feelings. No future. No fuc— *ahem* fun. No naked fun.

What could go wrong? Nothing—as long as I remember the rules. Don’t notice the way she looks in a dress. Don’t react when she does that little shivery sigh thing whenever we touch. Don’t think about the fact that she’s never had a toe-curling orgasm that wasn’t self-delivered and just how badly I want to change that.

Five dates—that’s it—and then we go our separate ways. At least, that was the plan.

My review:

This was such a fun book to read! A giant dog always makes things better, so this book gets brownie points immediately for Anchovy, the Great Dane. Zara is a workaholic who plans every detail. Caleb is a hockey player embroiled in a PR  nightmare. On paper, they shouldn’t work. And yet they work so well. They seem like opposites but have more in common than they expected. There is just one thing that bothered me as I was reading this book: why was Caleb the only player under fire? The “you were the senior player, you should have shut it down” argument works to an extent, but as it’s written the rookies make the mistakes and the senior players get punished while the rookies face no consequences.

Overall, I really enjoyed this book. There is a small appearance of Fallon from Tomboy  which was fun. Caleb and Zara’s support of each other personally and in their careers was amazing. And both of them have invaluable friendships. And like I said, Anchovy makes everything better.

About Avery

AveryFlynn.jpg

USA Today bestselling romance author Avery Flynn has three slightly-wild children, loves a hockey-addicted husband and is desperately hoping someone invents the coffee 

IV drip.

She fell in love with romance while reading Johanna Lindsey’s Mallory books. It wasn’t long before Avery had read through all the romance offerings at her local library. Needing a romance fix, she turned to Harlequin’s four books a month home delivery service to ease the withdrawal symptoms. That worked for a short time, but it wasn’t long before the local book stores’ staff knew her by name.

Avery was a reader before she was a writer and hopes to always be both. She loves to write about smartass alpha heroes who are as good with a quip as they are with their *ahem* other God-given talents. Her heroines are feisty, fierce and fantastic. Brainy and brave, these ladies know how to stand on their own two feet and knock the bad guys off theirs.

Take Me Down, an all-new, sexy contemporary standalone from Wall Street Journal and New York Times bestselling author Carly Phillips, is available now!

Read my review here

CPTakeMeDownCover5x8_MEDIUM-NEW3

Parker Knight was going through the motions… and then he met her.

Parker Knight lived and lost his dream. Now he works for his family’s business, wearing a suit and pretending to be happy. A weekend away to plan a corporate retreat turns into a revelation when he lays eyes on Emily Stevens, the sexy owner of a small inn that’s seen better days. One look at Emily and the run down bed and breakfast and suddenly Parker has a purpose. He turns his short stay into a longer one, intending to act on the intense chemistry and desire that runs hot between them. While there, he plans to give Emily and her father’s inn a much needed infusion of cash and manpower.

Coming off an emotionally abusive marriage, Emily has an immediate bias against suave, city guys … But despite the slick exterior, Emily discovers Parker is sweet, charming and eager to help. And when she caves to their incredible passion, she discovers he makes her feel just as good in bed as out. Yet no matter how hot they burn or how well they mesh, Parker’s time with her has an expiration date. And Emily has an ex who refuses to accept that their relationship is over.

Parker isn’t a man who gives up. Sweet, sexy Emily Stevens is his chance to reclaim his life. He wants to take care of this woman who makes him feel … everything. If only he could figure out how to merge his two lives, everything would be perfect. But when her ex makes his move, Parker realizes what’s important. He only hopes he isn’t too late.

Excerpt:

“I like the dreamy look on your face.”

“It isn’t often I’m thrown into a good memory of my mom,” he admitted.

More often than not he thought about the bitter ones of his dad and his lack of attention, his many wives, and losing the one parent who loved him unconditionally.

“Do you know the key ingredient that differentiates a Snickerdoodle from a sugar cookie?” she asked.

He shook his head. “Can’t say that I do.” That memory escaped him.

“Cream of Tartar. It’s a leavening agent that gives the cookie its signature tangy flavor and chewy texture.”

“She made them every Christmas,” he said, hearing his own wistful tone. “We left them out for Santa.”

Emily smiled at his memory. “I’ll make them for you one day if –“ She shook her head.

If you’re still here went unsaid.

“Can I take this to mean you’re not mad at me anymore?” he asked, leaning in on one arm.

She poured the brownie mix into the pan and sighed. “I was never mad at you. At first I was just scared to death. Then I was frustrated with dad and the situation. You being here, supporting his dream doesn’t help. But I’m not angry at you.”

The heaviness in his chest eased. But he was going to throw her an even more difficult question. He wasn’t sure if he expected an answer and given he didn’t know if he could answer in return, it wasn’t exactly fair.

“Okay then, good. What about before we came back? Are you still running from what we felt?”

She’d stuck a chocolate covered finger into her mouth and at the question, her eyes opened wide. The question had been bad timing on his part because his dick hardened at the sight of that finger in her mouth. He wanted her lips wrapped around his cock.

But, they had important things to discuss. “Running?” she asked on a squeak.

He pushed himself to standing and strode around the island, coming up to her and pushing her back against the counter. “Running,” he confirmed. “Not physically but emotionally.”

“I can’t let myself get too attached to you, Parker. You’re leaving. Sooner not later. Just because we don’t discuss it doesn’t make it not true. I need to protect myself.”

Her words sliced through him because they were true. Because he hated them. Because she was right and he didn’t want her to be. So he did the only thing he could do in the moment.

“But we have now.”

Stay by Allie York

Release Tour for STAY by Allie York
Brought to you by Forever Write PR

 

 

 
Allie York is back with a novella, STAY, from her lovable The Shores series.
Blair Smith takes her work seriously and her men casually.
Jaxon Stone spent his whole life picking himself up from a life in foster care,
always looking for the family he never had.
Fans of accidental pregnancy romance will adore this steamy yet heartful read.

 

 

 
About STAY
 
Title: Stay
Author: Allie York
Release Date: June 6, 2019
Publisher: self-published
Series: The Shores Book 2
Genres: Contemporary Romance

Synopsis: Blair Smith is her own woman. She’s strong, independent, and proud of it. Owning a
wildly successful boutique by day and having a different date every night is her idea of living the
dream. Blair takes her work seriously and her men casually, until she makes the best decision
with the worst possible man.

 

Jaxon Stone spent his whole life picking himself up. From a child in foster care to a teen in juvie,
life always seemed to dish out the worst. Once he landed at The Shores Animal Hospital Jax
found a family. The only thing missing is someone to share that family with.

 

My review:

I’ve never watched Jersey Shore, but I suspect I just read a version of it. There seems to be a big group of friends. Blaire is the best friend of Ozma, who is now engaged to Harris and very pregnant. Unlike her bestie, Blaire is anti-relationship and just wants to get laid and often. Jax is basically the male version of her. They both work out a lot, they both date a lot, and they go out with friends a lot. After drinking too much one night they hook up, even though they were off limits to each other to protect the group dynamic. Best sex of their lives, friends with bennies, and so on. They both catch feelings but don’t want to admit it because each thinks the other still doesn’t want a relationship.  Then their little bubble is shattered and they face a very real commitment.

Honestly, I didn’t like either Jax or Blaire very much. All of the characters that had more than a few lines were pretty stereotypical. Ozma’s name is great, though. I haven’t seen that name since the Wizard of Oz collection of stories. Ranger was my favorite in the book but even he needed more book time.

This wasn’t a bad book, really, but it isn’t very good either. If you like reading about young twentysomethings with little responsibility and blossoming existential crises who pride themselves on sleeping with everyone they meet of the opposite sex, but no real substance to the story, then this is for you. Unfortunately, that’s not me.

Excerpt:
Copyright @ Allie York 2019

 

Jax swaggered over just as the coffee pot beeped. He reached around me, leaning in close to take the pot,
and pouring two cups before putting it back. “You always drink that much? I thought you were a health
freak.” He dumped way too much sugar in the coffee.
        “It’s all about balance.” I shrugged putting a teaspoon of sugar in mine. “I’ll go to the gym tomorrow, and it
will all balance out.” I sipped my coffee, watching him lean against the counter like he belonged in my
kitchen. “Do you go?”
        “To the gym? Yeah, that one across town, Frankie’s.” He stared at the coffee, then me. “I’ve slept with too
many women at World Fitness to go back. It got weird.” I nearly spit my coffee.
        “How many?” I looked into his gray eyes. Maybe it was the daiquiris, but Jax was sexy. In his button down,
all the tattoos were covered, but I knew they were there. His arms had these skulls and stuff on them, but
he never looked like a thug. He looked like a badass. Only Jax could pull it off. When he didn’t answer, I
walked past him to the living room, and he followed.
        “Maybe eight?” Jax sat at the other end of the couch, slouching back in a classic manspread. I curled my
legs under me, trying not to give him a clear shot up my skirt. At least my buzz left me a little dignity.
“Maybe eight? You don’t know?” I teased, sipping my coffee.
“No,” Jax said it like he couldn’t give me a number if he tried.

Back For More_ebook

Summer in the city…

Kurt

She’s smart, hot, and funny. My dream girl.

There’s just one problem. She’s also my best bud’s little sister.

The sparks have always been there, but law school had to come first. Now, we’re all back in the city and the same sparks fly every time I run into her.

She needs a job and I need an assistant at the law firm. What could go wrong?

I don’t know if I can hide my feelings any longer.

I know I shouldn’t go there, but I can’t help it.

Corina

My brother’s back in town, and I offer to share my awesome apartment. Imagine my surprise when his best friend Kurt walks in.

He’s still tall, dark, and handsome, and I can’t deny the pull.

Working together only complicates things. Long days and nights in the office can be dangerous.

When we’re not at the office, he’s always hanging around my apartment. To see my brother. Yeah, right.

All I know is, summer in the city is about to get a lot hotter.

 After all, 425 Madison Avenue is the perfect place to fall in love.

*Each story is completely standalone.

My review:

This was a decent book, but not my favorite in the 425 Madison series. Kurt and Corina have known each other forever since he’s her older brother’s best friend. She’s always had a crush on him and it turns out that was mutual, but Kurt was afraid of ruining his friendship with her brother. Things heat up quickly between them, though, and they can’t deny their feelings for long.

This book kept me interested; it isn’t a bad book by any means. I just wasn’t really feeling the connection to the characters like in others of this series. I did appreciate the cameo by Savannah from Two For Holding (while other residents of 425 Madison can make appearances in other stories, these are true standalones). I know there has to be tension and a conflict to overcome in a story, but these two seemed to manufacture their own conflict where one didn’t exist and I was as exhausted by their secret as they were.

Excerpt

Copyright @ 2019 Sylvia Kane

“I’m here for Corina Davies in 1205,” I respond, my nerves rattling even louder than five minutes ago when I was seized with the instinct to see her.

“Is she expecting you?” he asks, resting his hand on the phone.

I shake my head. The guy must think I’m a weirdo for just showing up like this. He’s going to call her for sure.

Sure enough, he picks up the phone. “Ms. Davies, you have a visitor,” he says, and then looks back at me. “Your name?”

I almost turn around to walk back out into the night, but I stay rooted to the spot. “Kurt. Kurt Owens.”

“Kurt Owens. Thanks.” He turns to me again and nods. “Go ahead. Have a good evening.”

I head for the elevator, and my heart rate rises with each step. She’s gonna think I’m fucking nuts for showing up like this at midnight. And why am I doing this again? What do I hope to achieve by interrupting whatever relaxing activity she’s enjoying at this time of night? I don’t know, but the thought of seeing her makes my palms sweat. I remember that skirt she wore, and how soft her legs looked. My cock twitches at the memory of her silky-smooth legs. Fuck. Down, boy. We’re not here for that.

I step into the elevator and before I know it, I’m standing in front of her door, my hand in the air. What am I going to tell her? What’s my excuse for showing up here so late? At the very least, I have to admit it to myself—I just want to see her. I have to see her. There’s no denying the spark that flew between us the other night. All those years hadn’t done a damn thing to kill our chemistry.

It sure is ballsy to just show up here. Maybe I’ve had a bit much to drink, but I’m not drunk. I’m not slurring or falling over myself. She won’t notice.

Finally, I knock. She’s expecting me, because she opens up right away. Seeing her knocks the wind out of me. Her hair rests over her shoulders in this sexy, yet natural way; she has a hint of makeup, but not much. She doesn’t need any. She’s still a natural beauty, just like she was all those years ago.

A light pink, silk robe clings to her body and ends just above the knees. She ties up the belt, very tight, as if afraid it might slip off any minute. Or that I might see what’s underneath. I try to push the thought from my head.

“Hi,” I say, hoping I don’t look as awkward as I feel. I’m standing in her doorway, without any good reason whatsoever, like a doofus. She’d be perfectly justified in turning me away with some excuse about going to sleep or whatever. But, she doesn’t.

She stands back to let me in.

“Hi, Kurt.”

I love the way my name sounds on her lips. Her lush, rosy lips. So smooth and kissable.

The Marriage Effect by Karla Sorensen

Title: The Marriage Effect
Author: Karla Sorensen
Genre: Sports Romance
Release Date: June 12, 2019
Logan Ward doesn’t want any more women in his life.
Being a football player and legal guardian to his four younger sisters means his playbook is full. However, one of them just landed in the hospital, which gives his brother the shot he needs to challenge Logan for custody.
 
Legal counsel says there’s only one thing Logan can do—find himself a wife.
Paige McKinney doesn’t always think things through.
 
Like walking away from her modeling career without a thought of what might come next. She really doesn’t think it through when she proclaims herself Logan’s fiancé at the hospital, simply because the sexy—albeit grumpy—football player forgot his cell phone at a party and security won’t let her pass. It’s not her fault it was overheard by the worst possible person.
A bargain is struck, and a fake marriage is the perfect solution. But the simple solution creates a whole new problem: they’re not as different as they seem. The reluctant groom has fire inside him, and his impetuous bride is about to light the match.

My review:

I admit, when I first started this book I wasn’t expecting much. How many ways can the fake marriage trope be executed? But this one was one of the best yet. Logan needs a wife to keep custody of his four younger sisters. Paige needs a husband to collect an inheritance. On paper, it’s the perfect plan. But Paige wasn’t counting on bonding so much with the girls.

The sisters made this book. They are hilarious and chaotic and sweet and fiery, and dealing with a lot in their short lives. They are good for Paige and she is good for them. And of course there’s the main part of the story: Paige and Logan. SO good together. I love how they see each other so clearly, through the screens each put up to hide from the public. And the ending of the book is a perfect movie ending.

“… this story is a tasty recipe for sweet sports romance, that you won’t regret breaking your diet for!!” – Mells_View

 

“There is just something so completely consuming about the way this author can write a story.” – BooksandBandanas

“1000 Stars for Karla Sorensen newest book The Marriage Effect. Karla has written one masterpiece y’all are going to flip for!!” – Andrea Britton

 

Well, let’s see … I’m a wife and a mother. If the things that I write bring a smile to someone’s face, then I’ve done my job. I am obsessed with Outlander (both the books and the show). I’m almost exclusively a romance reader, which means some people will never consider me a literary snob. If I could meet one historical figure, it would be Jane Austen. I received my Bachelors in Public Relations and worked in health care marketing before I had my babies. I hate Twitter. I do it, but I hate it. Also, if you want to get on my good side, bring me wine and I’ll love you forever.

My review:

The Paperback Writers anthology is a baker’s dozen of short stories all written by different authors, and all inspired by a Beatles song. Each story is different – there is romance, supernatural, fantasy, historical fiction, most anything you could want.

This is the perfect book to work on when you don’t have a big chunk of time – each short story stands alone so you can just read one or two at a time or devour the entire book. The story titles are the titles of the songs that inspired them. It’s also a great way to discover new to you authors!

This is a fantastic collection of short fiction from a talented group of authors.

Take Me Down by Carly Phillips

TMD - RB banner.jpg

Opposites don’t merely attract. . .they combust.

Take Me Down, an all-new, sexy contemporary standalone from Wall Street Journal and New York Times bestselling author Carly Phillips, is available now!

CPTakeMeDownCover5x8_MEDIUM-NEW3.jpg

Parker Knight was going through the motions… and then he met her.

Parker Knight lived and lost his dream. Now he works for his family’s business, wearing a suit and pretending to be happy. A weekend away to plan a corporate retreat turns into a revelation when he lays eyes on Emily Stevens, the sexy owner of a small inn that’s seen better days. One look at Emily and the run down bed and breakfast and suddenly Parker has a purpose. He turns his short stay into a longer one, intending to act on the intense chemistry and desire that runs hot between them. While there, he plans to give Emily and her father’s inn a much needed infusion of cash and manpower.

Coming off an emotionally abusive marriage, Emily has an immediate bias against suave, city guys … But despite the slick exterior, Emily discovers Parker is sweet, charming and eager to help. And when she caves to their incredible passion, she discovers he makes her feel just as good in bed as out. Yet no matter how hot they burn or how well they mesh, Parker’s time with her has an expiration date. And Emily has an ex who refuses to accept that their relationship is over.

Parker isn’t a man who gives up. Sweet, sexy Emily Stevens is his chance to reclaim his life. He wants to take care of this woman who makes him feel … everything. If only he could figure out how to merge his two lives, everything would be perfect. But when her ex makes his move, Parker realizes what’s important. He only hopes he isn’t too late.

My review:

Emily has a lot going on. She had several life traumas happen all at the same time, and now she’s back home helping her dad with the bed and breakfast that was her mother’s dream, putting her own dream on hold and trying to convince her dad to unload the B&B and move to Florida to live with her sister. Parker is living his life, but not really happy with it. He is simply existing. He lost a lot at a pretty young age and is still affected by his losses. He and Emily are drawn to each other, despite her reservations and the fact that he lives across the country.

I loved how Parker helped Emily to deal with her grief and take care of herself. She takes care of everything else and needed that reminder. I also liked the way he helped her understand her father better and see him how he is instead of through her fears. These two had insane chemistry, too. This was an entertaining, easy to read book.
