SYNOPSIS: No one on this planet pushes my buttons like Hollin Abbey. I don’t know if it’s the rugged, sexy cowboy look or the Harley Davidson motorcycle or the cocky swagger. Or just him. But whenever we’re together we fight like cats and dogs. Now our vineyards are rivals in the annual wine competition, and I’m determined to win. I just have to take out my Wright rival.
A sexy enemies-to-lovers romance set in the world of the Wrights about Hollin & Piper from USA Today bestselling author K.A. Linde.
REVIEW: I’ve really enjoyed that K.A. Linde revisited the Wright series! A Wright Christmas was just too cute (which features Piper’s sister). Now we get the cocky playboy hero who falls for the fistey and headstrong heroine. I am here for it. Holland Abbey is a lot fo deliciousness, that is for sure. And while the drama is something you may have seen in a romance book before, the aftermath includes some friendly advice and self-exploration that made this one stand out. Piper was a wonderful female lead! She’s a powerhouse and she so deserves a HEA. Also, the first time these two get together is steamy fun! If you’re looking for a contemporary enemies to lovers, this one is definitely for you.

SYNOPSIS: Working on the ranch and settling down is all Grayson’s ever wanted in life. When he meets the woman who could make that a reality, he learns she hates him with every fiber of her being. He knows she’s being unreasonable since their bickering is the hottest foreplay he’s ever had. Mackenzie Bishop’s an elementary school teacher and can tolerate a lot until it comes to Grayson. He may act like he doesn’t remember what he did, but Kenzie will never forget. Not when the memory of that night still lingers in her mind years later. She denies her attraction, but she can’t hide it forever, especially when there’s no escaping him. Although she refuses to give him the time of day, they form a truce and everything changes—just not in the way he expected.
Winning the Cowboy is a complete stand-alone and can be read without reading any of the other books or spin-off series, but if you prefer to read in order, start with Hitching the Cowboy as the characters and families do interconnect.
REVIEW: If you’ve been reading this series, you’ve seen glimpses of Grayson and Kenzie’s on-going tension. I was interested to know why Kenzie had such a dislike of Grayson, and we finally get that answer! I enjoyed seeing these two fight the chemistry, and then finally give in–if you know what I mean! Grayson is totally swoon-worthy too! I did want to shake some sense into Kenzie, so she would just spit the issue out and communicate, but that was with the reader’s all-knowing point of view. Haha. I am definitely having fun with this series and I’m excited to see what’s to come!

Jock Royal is Book 4 in the Jock Hard Series and available in Kindle Unlimited!
REVIEW: Sara Ney has been coming in HOT with new book boyfriend material lately. And let me just tell you, this is by far my most favorite of the Jock Hard series. I fell hard for Ash and Georgia. Seriously, I could not put this book down and it pulled me right out of the book slump I was in! I always go into Sara Ney’s books without reading the synopsis, so this book took a couple turns I was not expecting (in the best way). Seriously, I loved every single minute! Ash is definitely book boyfriend material. The way he is with Georgia, even when he’s a little clueless, just made me smile. And Georgia is a total peach! She is adorably sweet in her pursuit to redeem herself after that horrific first impression she had on him–let’s just say this isn’t a meet cute for them. I just had so much fun seeing their relationship morph and grow as they became closer–literally because, roommates, ya know? Haha. Anyway, my point is GO READ THIS BOOK! Hot rugged rugby player with an accent who is caring and giving, do I need to sell you on this anymore?!
I am lucky enough to be on Sara Ney’s ARC Team and have reviewed this book with honesty in exchange for an early copy!

SYNOPSIS: He’s a notorious crime lord—and he’s on the hunt for her. Maxheim Skolov is mafia royalty. Worlds above her. Ice-cold and merciless. Driven by duty and dark secrets. Tess is property. Expected to submit. Imprisoned by ruthless criminals determined to break her for information she can’t afford to give. Because she’s got a secret that could change everything–and the last thing she wants is to put it in the hands of her enemies. Except there’s something different about the heir to the Skolvo crime family that awakens long buried instincts within Tess and draws her toward the man inside the beast. A force more dangerous than anything she’s faced to date. So, she runs. But she won’t get far. For mafia prince Maxheim Skolov, hunting down the rebellious, spirited female is a certainty. He’ll do whatever it takes to possess her secret. The real question is what he’ll do with her—and to her—when he catches her.
Savage Prince: A Dark Mafia Omegaverse Fated-Mates Romance is the second book in the Ruthless Warlords series. It is a scorching HOT standalone, though it is recommenced to read the series in order for greatest enjoyment.
REVIEW: I haven’t read a fated mates book in way too long. I love them so much, and this one was really good! There was so much to like about this story. I like the world building and the alpha/beta/omega interactions. The dual points of view bring a lot to the story. Tess has been through the wringer and I loved seeing Maxheim prove how amazing he can be to her throughout the story. Also, the way Tess’ gift is so deadly and impacted by Maxheim’s appearance in her life pulled me right into the plot from the start. Then there are the Slokov brothers as whole, yum. I am here for each one meeting their mates and the chaos that ensues. I’m excited for the rest of this series, and I’d definitely recommend this one to my PNR/SCIFI steamy romance readers!

SYNOPSIS: Ever have one of those days where life just plain sucks? Welcome to my last three months–ever since I caught my can’t-be-soon-enough ex-husband cheating with his paralegal. I’m thirty-five years old, and I’ve lost my NYC apartment, my job, my money, and frankly, my dignity. But the final heartache in the suck sandwich of my life? My great-aunt Maggie died. The only family member who’s ever gotten me. Even after death, though, she’s helping me get back up. She’s willed me the keys to a house in the burbs, of all places, and dared me to grab life by the family jewels. Well, I’ve got the vise grips already in hand (my ex should take note) and I’m ready to fight for my life again. Too bad that bravado only lasts as long as it takes to drive into Huckleberry Hills. And see the house. There are forty-seven separate HOA violations, and I feel them all in my bones. Honestly, I’m surprised no one’s “accidentally” torched the house yet. I want to, and I’ve only been standing in front of it for five minutes. But then my hot, grumpy neighbor tells me to mow the lawn first and I’m just…done. Done with men too sexy for their own good and done with anyone telling me what to do. First rule of surviving the burbs? There is nothing that YouTube and a glass of wine can’t conquer.
Back in the Burbs is a hilarious enemies-to-lovers rom com!
REVIEW: Divorced, back at the parents, and in your thirties?! Yep, Mallory is on the hot mess express, and I loved every minute. I’m a huge Avery Flynn fan because she always makes me laugh out loud while reading, and this book was no exception. I enjoyed the journey Mallory went on after the bad hand life has dealt her. Cue Nick for all the swoony vibes. I wanted a little more romance, but if you like a story about a woman figuring it all out on her own, you’ll definitely like this one!
