Before the Sunset by Laura Pavlov Kindle Crack
Synopsis: 

He’s an actor in need of an image makeover. She’s determined to show her ex-fiancรฉ that she’s moved on. A fake relationship between two best friends is the perfect solution. Or is it?

 

Reese Murphy has been my best friend since before we took our first steps.

She’s the yin to my yang.

The peanut butter to my jelly.

It’s all platonic, of course, as we made a pact years ago that we’d never cross the line.

But then she took a job abroad and moved away for a year.

To say I’ve been lost without her would be a massive understatement.

She’s finally coming home, and I couldn’t be happier about it.

And then she presents me with a proposition...

Pretend to be her boyfriend.

I am an actor, after all, so it should be a piece of cake.  

It’s all part of her grand plan to show her ex-fiancรฉ that she’s moved on.

My agent wants me to clean up my image, so it would be a win-win for both of us.

But then she moves into my house and prances around in those tiny pajama shorts.

There's also the night she catches me alone in the bathroom in a compromising position.

And she isn’t in any hurry to leave.

We get lost in the moment and now I can’t think of anything else.

We are way past a gray area at this point.

We’ve entered a smoking-hot-I-think-I-might-be-in-love-with-my-best-friend area.

The problem is, she still thinks we’re fake dating.

And I stopped faking it a long time ago.

Before the Sunset (Cottonwood Cove, #4)Before the Sunset by Laura Pavlov
My rating: 5 of 5 stars


SIX STARS!! Just when I thought I couldn’t fall in love with Laura Pavlov’s books any more than I already do, she goes and writes Before the Sunset. Before the Sunset is the fourth book in the Cottonwood Cove series of interconnected standalones and my absolute FAVORITE! I didn’t want this book to end. I loved how Finn Reynolds and Reese Murphy’s relationship grew from childhood best friends to lovers. Before the Sunset was filled with the perfect amount of sweet, spicy heat and funny banter. This second-chance romance is addictive, small-town romance lovers' gold! One-click this book and the entire series.

From USA Today Bestselling Author Nikki Ash comes an all new standalone romantic suspense... Micah

From the first time I saw Sienna Bardot dancing on my stage, I was mesmerized. But after booking a private room and buying her time, I want more than just one night.

She thinks by telling me that she’s waiting for love and marriage it’ll scare me away, but what she doesn’t understand is that I plan to make her mine in every way.

When her life is threatened, I would do anything to keep her safe—even if that means forcing her to take my last name.


Sienna

Micah Alexander is a man used to getting what he wants, and I’m a woman used to having my choices taken away.

The sexy club owner thinks he can charm me, but it’s never going to happen. I’m dancing my way to a better life—one that doesn’t include making the same mistakes my mom did.

But when her sins come back to haunt me yet again, I have no choice but to turn to the only man who can save me—and hope letting him in doesn’t put my heart in further danger.

The Risk of Falling (Falling in Love #1)The Risk of Falling by Nikki Ash
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I loved The Risk of Falling (Falling in Love Book 1) by Nikki Ash. I loved Micah and Sienna. I won’t regurgitate the synopsis; I’ll just say Micah is the ultimate Cinnamon Roll Hero. He’s a little hard and crusty on the outside and sweet and soft on the inside. Sienna is a little bit of a Cinnamon Roll herself. This delicious, spicy and sweet mafia crime family romance made me love this trope a little more. Micah is life. I can’t wait to read Ellie and Lincoln’s story in A Risk Worth Taking in January! Nikki Ash’s books never disappoint! One-click worthy.

Salt Kiss by Sierra Simone Kindle Crack
Synopsis: 

Tristan Thomas is lost. 


After leaving the Army, the young former soldier is in limbo. Until, that is, he’s hired by Mark Trevena, the owner of Lyonesse—DC’s ultra-secret club—to be Mark’s new bodyguard. He’s drawn into Mark’s dark, seductive world of power and desire, and slowly drawn to Mark himself, even though Mark is everything Tristan knows he shouldn’t want: cruel and wicked and shamelessly amoral.

 

But protecting Mark isn’t Tristan’s only duty: soon, Mark asks him to guard his soon-to-be bride as she travels home from Ireland on Mark’s yacht. Tristan is jealous—and hurt to learn that the object of his obsession is engaged—but the soldier in him is made to obey orders, and he goes to fetch Mark’s bride for him.

 

Isolde Laurence is nothing like Tristan expected, however. Young, quiet, and sharp, she’s being pushed into this marriage by her family, and as the two travel back to America, Tristan finds himself fascinated with Isolde and the glimpses he gets of the lonely but determined woman behind her reserve. And the fascination is mutual: one night, while sailing under the cold stars, they share a searing kiss. 


From there, it’s a fast fall into the forbidden.  


But in Mark Trevena’s world, the fall is only the beginning…


The Lyonesse trilogy is a queer, kinky contemporary retelling of the legend of Tristan and Isolde, set in the same world as the New Camelot series. Readers will not have to read New Camelot to enjoy Lyonesse, although readers who enjoyed New Camelot will find all the things they loved about the trilogy here: MMF mรฉnage, plenty of the angsty forbidden, and a sweeping retelling of a familiar story.



Review of Salt Kiss:


Salt Kiss (Lyonesse, #1)Salt Kiss by Sierra Simone
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Salt Kiss (Lyonesse Trilogy Book 1) by Sierra Simone is a wickedly sexy retelling of the legendary medieval Celtic romance between Tristan and Isolde. Salt Kiss was everything I had hoped it would be. Tristan, Mark, and Isolde’s relationship is nuclear hot. I was going to post a few dozen ๐ŸŒถ️ for my review, but this story is so much more. Sierra’s writing is brilliant, as always. If you read Sierra’s New Camelot series, you’re in for an equally addictive kinky MMF adventure. Get ready to devour every salty, sexy, steamy page of this debaucherous romance on 9.12. My Kindle screen is still on fire a week after reading this book.

Cover Reveal: The Rules of Dating My One-Night Stand

Authors: Penelope Ward & Vi Keeland

Genre: Standalone Contemporary Romance

Cover Design: Sommer Stein, Perfect Pear Creative

Photographer: Marq Mendez

Release Date: November 12, 2023

BLURB

Rule number one for having a one-night stand: Don’t fall for the girl. 

After a lengthy dating slump, I finally met someone who sparked my interest. 

Well, first the sparks flew when we argued. Later in the evening those sparks ignited into something

more.   

I was drawn to Devyn, in a way I hadn’t felt in a really long time. 

Needless to say, I was disappointed when she abruptly left after our amazing night together.  

I couldn’t stop thinking about her. But she hadn’t even given me her number. 

In a city with eight-million people, I figured I’d never see Devyn again. 

So imagine my surprise when I knocked on the door of an apartment in the building I lived in, and

none other than my one-night stand stood on the other side. 

If I thought Devyn didn’t want anything to do with me before, that was nothing compared to how

she felt after finding out I was the landlord and she was about to be evicted… 

And that was just the first surprise that would rock my world when it came to the mystery woman in

apartment 410.

Synopsis: 

I was loved by two men--one was my husband and the other his best friend. But I was only in love with one. Then he forgot I existed.


Hudson Mackay was the only man I ever wanted.

The man I married. The man who promised to love me "'til death do us part."

Then he disappeared and never came home.


Everyone thinks he's dead. Everyone but me.

Friends tell me to move on. That he's never coming back.

But with every single month that passes, I can't seem to let go.


His best friend Brooks swears I'll never be alone. That he'll always be there.

But the stronger his feelings for me get, the more I realize how wrong they are.


I can't move on. Especially not with him.

Hudson wouldn't want that. But Hudson isn't here.


And soon I learn, Hudson was a liar.


He kept secrets that could ruin us.

Secrets I'll take to my grave.


I never thought I'd get the chance to see him again, to ask how he could betray me.

Until one day, I discover he's alive.

Except, he has no idea who I am.


I never truly knew my husband.

And now, he doesn't know me.


Author Note: This is a standalone. No other books need to be read to enjoy this one. There is no cheating and no OW drama. It has a HEA.

Review of Shattered Secrets by Lilian Harris

Shattered SecretsShattered Secrets by Lilian Harris
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

4.5 stars. I finally popped my Lilian Harris cherry and devoured her latest mafia romance, Shattered Secrets. Lilian spins an intricate web of love, lies, and betrayal told from dual points of view. This second-chance amnesia-induced romance is unforgettable! I can’t wait to read her other mafia books. Shattered Secrets is a standalone romance, and there is not a cliffhanger ending.
