Tin Queen is the final book in the Tin Gypsy Series! Motorcycle Club and Small Town Romances
REVIEW: WHAT AN ENDING! I’m so sad that another Devney Perry series has come to an end. I love her books so much. This series has been so interesting and it’s awesome to see the Tin Gipsy and Arrowhead Warriors feud come to a head with Emmett and Nova. I love the emotion this book provoked in me. As the reader you know the big secret, yet Devney still managed to surprise me with some of the big moments. It was kind of like watching a train wreck in slow motion, I could not stop watching, but I knew it was going to get really messy. Although, this particular train wreck comes with a HEA, so it was easier to watch. Haha. I sincerely recommend this whole series to readers, and I hope you love the characters as much as I do!!

SYNOPSIS: For Regan Penhaligon, there’s no better place to run to than the exclusive Ardnoch Estate in the remote Scottish Highlands. Her impulsive behavior has finally caught up with her and Regan’s visit with her sister, Robyn, is an opportunity to hide from someone who has grown dangerously obsessed with her. Determined to make amends for her mistakes, Regan plans to repair her relationship with Robyn by staying close. And when an offer of help comes from Thane Adair, Regan gratefully accepts. Widower, Thane, needs a new nanny housekeeper for his two young children and when they bond with Regan Penhaligon, he offers her the job. But as the weeks pass and the complex American reveals who she really is, Thane struggles with his growing attraction to her. Regan never expected to feel so intensely for Thane, but she can’t deny her passion for him or her love for his children. When someone from Thane’s past threatens his family, Regan wants to be his pillar of support. However, his continued inability to trust her might just destroy their chance at future happiness… and the person who drove Regan to Ardnoch might snuff out her chance for any future at all.
There With You is Book 2 in the new Adair Family Series!
REVIEW: If you’ve read my reviews for a while, you might know that I love a good single dad/nanny romance. And this one was HOT, HOT, HOT! This book had a lot going on, and not just the steam level!! Samantha Young writes these emotionally charged characters and scenes so well. The connections and friendships were just so interesting. And I loved getting more from this world. Not to mention some nail-biting-suspence. This one has the recipe for perfection. It was almost there for me, but I felt it had a few too many dramatic scenes. I also think that reading the first book will add to the reader’s enjoyment of this one, so I kind of wish I did a reread. I’m sincerely looking forward to seeing what the next Adair book brings us!!

SYNOPSIS: Trouble. One word that comes to mind when someone talks about me. I like to think of it as protection, watching out for the ones I love. But now I’m spending more time in the penalty box than on the ice and the team owner isn’t happy. Finding myself across the room from the hot therapist I kissed on New Year’s Eve only makes me push my problems down further. I want couch time with her but not the kind she’s used to. I decide to lie to her just to finish off my therapy so I can do what I really want—date her—even if she says she doesn’t date hockey players. Just when my therapy sessions are up and I’ve made some headway with Paisley, it’s my parents who throw another wrench in my plans. If I abide by my parent’s wishes to marry the one they’ve chosen, I’ll lose Paisley forever. But if I go against my parents, I’m failing my deceased best friend all over again.
This is Book 2 in Piper Rayne’s new hockey series, Hockey Hotties!
REVIEW: Only Piper Rayne could bring me to read a therapist/client romance. I’m going to be very honest and say that I avoid this trope like the plague (my masters in counseling may have something to do with that). Anyway, enough about me, I really did enjoy this book, for the same reason I always enjoy Piper Rayne books: they make me feel things in the best way. They’re steamy and have characters with depth. Maksim and Paisley complemented each other well, despite their own issues. It was enjoyable watching them overcome the odds with each other. And then there are Maksim, Aiden and Ford. I really do love reading about these friends interacting. It’s always so entertaining. Ford‘s book, Faking It With #41, has all the makings to be a favorite for me, so I cannot wait for that one! Overall, I’m having a lot fun with these hockey romances from Piper Rayne!!

Piper Rayne, or Piper and Rayne, whichever you prefer because we’re not one author, we’re two. Yep, you get two USA Today Bestselling authors for the price of one. Our goal is to bring you romance stories that have “Heartwarming Humor With a Side of Sizzle” (okay…you caught us, that’s our tagline). A little about us… We both have kindle’s full of one-clickable books. We’re both married to husbands who drive us to drink. We’re both chauffeurs to our kids. Most of all, we love hot heroes and quirky heroines that make us laugh, and we hope you do, too.
SYNOPSIS: Amelia – Never make the same mistake twice is my motto. After being left in the dust of an old pickup truck, I promised that I would take care of myself and never trust another man with a sexy smirk and cowboy boots. Then he showed up, and he’s everywhere I turn. He’s at the barn, he’s at the bar, and now, he’s my roommate. He makes me want things I shouldn’t. Asher – I grew up in foster care, and on my eighteenth birthday, I was set free. I spent years coasting from town to town. Staying wasn’t a part of my plan and neither was love, especially with someone off limits. This was all supposed to be temporary. I’m just hoping my secret doesn’t destroy the only family I’ve ever known.
Buried secrets are never buried for long. The is the seventh book in Natasha Madison’s Southern Series!
REVIEW: Another emotional twisty romance to add to the Southern Series!! Asher is such a great male lead, he is deeply impacted by his past experiences, but a whole lot of wonderful. I love how he is willing t work so hard to get his girl. In true Natasha Madison fashion, there is lots of chemistry and love between the main characters, but also a lot of big issues that are here to cause them problems. This whole series is perfect for readers that like some action and drama with their romance!

Check out the other books in the Southern Series:
When her nose isn’t buried in a book, or her fingers flying across a keyboard writing, she’s in the kitchen creating gourmet meals. You can find her, in four inch heels no less, in the car chauffeuring kids, or possibly with her husband scheduling his business trips. It’s a good thing her characters do what she says, because even her Labrador doesn’t listen to her…
SYNOPSIS: I never thought I’d say yes to a fake date. Let alone with Julian Wright. But I’m stuck attending my perfect brother’s doctoral graduation, and I can’t suffer through another round of parental disappointment. Julian has to go to a charity function he planned with his ex-girlfriend. We both need a date. Yes, we shared one kiss in a darkened office to make his ex jealous. But it wasn’t real. Was it? I’m sure I can get through this. Until we get to the house and there’s only one bed. I’ve pined for Julian for three long years. More than my body is on the line…I need to guard my heart. Because if I get hurt in our fake relationship, then it serves me Wright.
A new stand alone fake relationship romance set in the world of the Wrights from USA Today bestselling author K.A. Linde.
REVIEW: Yes, yes, yes, this was definitely everything I wanted it to be! I’m so happy that K.A. Linde revisited the Wright series with A Wright Christmas at the end of last year! These new characters have been wonderful l to read about. I had a feeling that Jenn was going to be a really great female character from what we’ve seen of her in the last couple books, but she even exceeded my expectations! I like the realistic portrayal of the mental health condition she’s dealing with and how it plays out in different situations. I also appreciated the different family dynamics for both Jennifer and Julian. These dynamics play a part in who they are and how they interact with others. After everything that happened with Ashleigh in the last book I had a feeling she would be a little bit of a problem for Julian and Jennifer in this one as well. It was nice to see Jennifer grow and come more into herself while dealing with the Ashleigh throughout the story. Jennifer was just so relatable in many ways, even with the things about her that I didn’t connect with at all. There were just so many parts with her where I just sat there and said “yep, haven’t we all felt this way!” I think what I really loved too, is the connection between these two from the very beginning and how that is stable throughout the book even when things happen to throw them off course. I’m really excited to see what we get in the next Wright book, Wright Rival!

SYNOPSIS: She’s a figure skater. He’s a hockey player. Things are about to heat up on the ice. Rhett Rauthruss is single for the first time in six years. He’s fresh off a long-term, long-distance relationship and ready to make the most of what’s left of college. Party with his boys, get to the Frozen Four with his team, and maybe play the field for a change. Sienna Hale knows a thing or two about heartbreak. She’s a college athlete about to skate for the last time, and nothing is going to throw her off course. Not her worries about finding a job after college, not the whispers of last year’s accident on the ice, and not the cute hockey player who keeps asking her out. They think they want different things, but when it heats up between them, there’s no denying they have something in common–even if it’s just for a night.
This is Book 3 in the Campus Nights series!
REVIEW: THIS SERIES! I have honestly loved EVERY SINGLE BOOK in the Campus Nights series from Rebecca Jenshak. Each couple is so unique in their issues, but so real, and so good for each other. Rhett and Sienna are so stickin’ cute. Something I love about Rebecca Jenshak’s books is that I can be laughing my butt off in one chapter, and then clutching my heart with all the emotions I’m feeling in the next. And I do have to say the beginning this book had me laughing pretty hard! I’ve been so curious about Rhett this whole time because we met him in the previous books. He’s in this weird long distance relationship that isn’t a great one and the guys don’t exactly support. From what little glimpses we get of him, I also got this impression of him being a very sweet and loyal guy, but really getting him to know him in this book was so much better! The first interactions he has with Sienna are hilariously awful. But the progression of them together had me very, very invested. Sienna was a very interesting character, because we get to see her later on in her growth where she has a great maturity and handle on her situation. Everything she’s dealt with, and is still currently dealing with health-wise, really made her fascinating. We don’t get to see her growth as much, but she still pulls you into the story. I also really enjoyed her friendship with Silas. What the friendship is built on and how they were there for each other in a way only they could was heartwarming. Silas has one of the quotes that I love the most:
“Do you want to know what makes me and Sienna so close? What makes any two people close, I’d wager?” I don’t respond, but he keeps going. “Going through challenging shit together. Being vulnerable and letting the other person see all your fucked-up-ness…” There’s a little more, but I don’t want to spoil it anything!
It’s also really awesome to see the couples from the last two books! I think what I love the most about series that have standalone books is that you get the complete story in one book, but you get to revisit the characters throughout the other books. It makes me feel like there’s this group of people that you’re really invested in and you really want to see them get their happy ever afters! And not only do you get to see them get their happy ever after, you then get to see them living their happy ever after while their friends are on their own personal journey. Not only are the couple stories amazing, but also how the whole friend group is supportive of each other. They all experience major ups and downs, but their friends have their backs. The thing about Rebecca‘s books is that while she can definitely have you laughing your butt off, she also covers the real issues that people deal with on differing levels. Sometimes those issues are super emotional and you need the help of your friends and family to get through it. The characters in this one are just so great! I appreciate all of the side characters in different ways, and I’m definitely looking forward to learning more about Maverick and Dakota as the series continues!

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!

4.5 STARS Release Date: June 9, 2021 SYNOPSIS: When the person you blame for your grief is the only one who can save you from the pain… Tank Wicked lost his sister and has since vowed to save everyone else in his path. He lives by the creed of the Dark Knights motorcycle club, sworn to protect and respect his community. He selflessly saves lives as a volunteer firefighter and treats the men and women who work for him at his tattoo shop like family. But life isn’t a balance scale where good deeds negate bad things to come, and one foggy night life guts Tank once again. When a car careens over the side of a bridge and into a river, Tank springs into action, plunging into the water to rescue the passengers. Four people go into the river, but only three come out alive. Leah Yates is just trying to make it through each day. When the man she blames for her grief becomes the only one who can pull her from the depths of despair, she discovers that even hope comes at a price. Maybe this time she won’t have to face it alone.
The THE WICKED AFTERMATH is an emotionally gripping story of love, loss, and hope, with a rich and entrancing happily ever after. Set on the sandy shores of Cape Cod, the Wickeds feature fiercely protective heroes, strong heroines, and unbreakable family bonds. If you think bikers are all the same, you haven’t met the Dark Knights. The Dark Knights are a motorcycle club, not a gang. Their members stick together like family and will stop at nothing to keep their communities safe. Some of the Wickeds’ love stories will be hilariously fun and deeply emotional, others will tear at your heartstrings and include injections of humor, but they will all leave you wishing you could climb between the pages and join them. All Wicked novels may be enjoyed as standalone romances.
REVIEW: This book was just so heartwarming and sweet! Tank is definitely a new book boyfriend. Something that really adds to the story are the different family dynamics between Leah and her small family, and the large Wicked clan. There’s just so much love and caring within them. The quirky little things make you really excited to learn about all of the characters. The connection between these two is so touching. I loved seeing Tank with Leah, but also with the girls! This book illustrates grief as a process. It’s interesting that it is grief that really connects both Tank and Leah. Overall, I really like the growth of the relationship and I loved seeing the small family that they formed! Also, the cover is hot as hell and I will definitely need to own a physical copy!

SYNOPSIS: A hate to love, second chance romance. Just how wrong is it to want my best friend’s little sister? And, how do you fix a broken heart? This inquiring mind wants to know. It probably doesn’t matter though because Nora hates me. If you ever wondered, it is possible to live and work with someone in a small town and not speak to said person for months. That’s how long Nora ignores me after I tell her commitment isn’t for me. I didn’t know I was already in love with her. I didn’t know I was breaking my own heart by telling myself it was too complicated to fall for my best friend’s sister. All I want now is to find the way back to us.
What to Expect ✔️ A broody ex-military pilot ✔️ Best friend’s sister ✔️ Off limits ✔️ Frenemies to lovers ✔️ Hate to love ✔️ Second chance
REVIEW: This is just such an adorable series, every book has made me smile I love how the characters are connected through this small town Alaska and piloting. The previous book, Evers & Afters, was adorable, and I love how Cami’s coffee makes an appearance in this one as well. I seriously want a cup! Before this book we get little glimpses of the connection between Nora and Gabriel, and I knew I was going to enjoy their story. They started off as friends with benefits, until Gabriel put an end to all that, being anti-commitment. These two are scared and trying to protect themselves, but man did Gabriel win me over right in the beginning. I really was rooting for him to win Nora over and their chemistry was so hot! This book can be read as a standalone, but I recommend the other stories too!
