Queen Move by Kennedy Ryan is LIVE!

“The joyous, heartfelt romance we need right now!” -- Lexi Blake, New York Times bestselling author

New Romance Books

Queen Move, an all-new powerful and moving, not-to-be-missed second chance romance from RITA® Award-winning and Wall Street Journal bestselling author Kennedy Ryan is available now!

The boy who always felt like mine is now the man I can't have…

Dig a little and you'll find photos of me in the bathtub with Ezra Stern.
Get your mind out of the gutter. We were six months old.
Pry and one of us might confess we saved our first kiss for each other. 
The most clumsy, wet, sloppy . . . spectacular thirty seconds of my adolescence.
Get into our business and you'll see two families, closer than blood, torn apart in an instant.
Twenty years later, my "awkward duckling" best friend from childhood, 
the boy no one noticed, is a man no one can ignore.

Finer. Fiercer. Smarter. 

Tell me it's wrong. 
Tell me the boy who always felt like mine is now the man I can’t have. 
When we find each other again, everything stands in our way--secrets, lies, promises.
But we didn't come this far to give up now. 
And I know just the move to make if I want to make him mine.

Review of Queen Move
Queen MoveQueen Move by Kennedy Ryan
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Learning how to play chess and understanding each piece’s value is a lot like the “game” of life—the real game of knowing how every move and relationship serves a purpose. Like the game, every strategic play has an effect on each player. Any good chess player knows that the most significant piece is the Queen.

In Queen Move, Kennedy Ryan tackles social issues that plague our society. Ezra and Kimba are strong, smart, and so very real. I love those traits in Kennedy’s characters. They want to change the world. Kimba and Ezra get it. They get the game; they get each other. Just like in life, you need a strong and understanding partner who values your strengths, weaknesses, and sacrifices; in good times and bad. Ezra and Kimba, and their second chance at winning at love, is a checkmate for me! One-click this book! Queen Move is total Kindle Crack!

REVIEW: Fight For Me by Corinne Michaels is LIVE

Check out my spoiler-free review of Fight for Me by Corinne Michaels.  This second chance romance was unputdownable.  This book is a standalone in the Arrowood Brothers series. 
Corinne Michaels Books
Fight For Me by Corinne Michaels is now LIVE!

New York Times Bestselling author, Corinne Michaels, brings a new breathtaking and emotional love story to life in the second STANDALONE in the Arrowood Brothers series. 

I fell in love with Sydney Hastings when I was ten years old.
At sixteen, we whispered promises of forever. 
When I was twenty-two I broke them all. I left her and promised never to return.

After my father's death, I’m forced to go home to Sugarloaf for six months. She'll be everywhere, no longer just in my memories and regrets. 

When we’re together, it’s as though time never stopped. She’s still the one I want, but I don’t deserve her. Instead of apologizing, I take that beautiful, broken woman in my arms. But after that, it’s her turn to leave me. 

 Now I have to fight. For her. For us. For the life we both want …

Spoiler-free Review:
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
4.5 - 5.0 Fight for Me by Corinne Micheals is the second book in the Arrowood Brothers series. Four brothers have to go back home to deal with their dead father’s farm and a barnyard of emotional baggage. Fight for Me focuses on Declan, the oldest brother, who had to leave the love of his life, Sydney. Now Declan is back in Sugarloaf full of regret and has to face the feelings he tried to bury for years.

I literally read this book in one sitting! I was fully invested in seeing Sydney and Declan’s story play out to the end. I have to say there were about a dozen times I wanted to smack Declan and Sydney with my Kindle. They frustrated me as much as they frustrated each other. I felt for Sydney as she tried to break through the barricade that Declan had built around his heart. They were both fighters who deserved that emotion-packed ending. 

Fourth A Lie by Pepper Winters is LIVE!

From New York Times Bestseller, Pepper Winters, comes the fourth book in the USA Today Bestselling Dark Romance series, Goddess Isles.  Check out my spoiler-free review below.  You can start reading this series for 99 cents

“There was a truth once. Truth we shared in the dark and scribed scars upon our hearts.
There was a lie once. A lie that shattered our hard-earned truth apart.”

Eleanor Grace did the unbelievable. She fell for a man who trades in women, dabbles in myth, and has the morals of a cold-hearted beast. However, love isn’t enough where past sins are concerned, and only pain can follow.

Sully Sinclair did the impossible. He gave his trust to a goddess who has the ultimate power to break him. Unfortunately, paradise is just an illusion, his islands aren’t impenetrable, and now he has to pay the price.

A fledgling connection.

A war they can’t stop.

A future that doesn’t bow to fate.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Fourth a Lie (GODDESS ISLES Book 4) was incredible. It was brutal, intense, and a total page-turner. I couldn't read this book fast enough and experienced page flip anxiety while trying not to skip ahead. The fourth installment in this series is action-packed. Drake and Sully go to war. Sully finds himself at war with his emotions as he realizes his heart's potential to experience love. I'm DYING to see how it all ends. The conclusion, Fifth a Fury (GODDESS ISLES Book 5), will release on June 16th.

Add THE HUNTER to Goodreads:

The Hunter, an all-new scorching hot contemporary romance from USA Today bestselling author L.J. Shen is available now! 

Boston’s debauched elite is going up in flames, and it’s the Fitzpatrick family that set it on fire. 

I didn’t mean to star in a sex tape, okay?
It was just one of those unexplainable things. Like Stonehenge, Police Academy 2, and morning glory clouds.
It just happened.
Now my ball-busting father is sentencing me to six months of celibacy, sobriety, and morbid boredom under the roof of Boston’s nerdiest girl alive, Sailor Brennan.
The virginal archer is supposed to babysit my ass while I learn to take my place in Royal Pipelines, my family’s oil company.
Little does she know, that’s not the only pipe I’ll be laying…


I didn’t want this gig, okay?
But the deal was too sweet to walk away from.
I needed the public endorsement; Hunter needed a nanny.
Besides, what’s six months in the grand scheme of things?
It’s not like I’m in danger of falling in love with the appallingly gorgeous, charismatic gazillionaire who happens to be one of Boston’s most eligible bachelors.
No. I will remain immune to Hunter Fitzpatrick’s charm.
Even at the cost of losing everything I have.
Even at the cost of burning down his kingdom. 

Review of The Hunter
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

“He was the Hunter, and I was the prey.”

Hunter Fitzpatrick is an oil company heir who will be disinherited if he doesn’t clean up his wild ways. Sailor Brennan only cares about one thing - winning Olympic gold in archery. Sailor gets an offer she can’t refuse. She needs Hunter's family contacts to help leverage an expensive PR campaign to give her a much-needed edge in securing a spot on the team. All she has to do is move in and tame the orgy loving, dirty-talking man whore. Sailor might hit her mark if her misunderstood pornified prince doesn’t make her fall for him.

“Us. I have a glass soul, baby. Pretty to look at, but it breaks easily, can make you bleed, and nobody gets attached to it.”

“I slept in nothing but my boxer briefs. When I woke up with a hard-on like a supersized German sausage—the kind that makes you wrestle with your own dick during your morning pee—I hope she’d caught a glimpse of it before she scurried along to her boring day of shooting objects and skipping off into the sunset, holding hands with her hymen.”

I don’t know what I can say about Leigh Shen’s books that I haven’t said before. I EFFING LOVE THEM. Can I call her the queen of irresistible bad boy dick heads that you can’t help but love? Hunter and this book struck gold with my heart! The Hunter must be one-clicked as soon as it goes live on 5/11. This book is total Kindle Crack.

"He thought I was his muse. Turned out, he was mine too.”

Maggie Stevens is done feeling objectified.

After spending her entire life in the spotlight and climbing the high fashion ranks as a model in LA, she’s willing to leave it all behind for a fresh start. Moving to Seattle seems like the perfect solution.

A clean slate.
New adventures.
Endless opportunities.

All is going according to plan. Until she meets the drop-dead gorgeous cooking instructor who delights in adding to her misery.

Desmond Blake is determined to make a name for his culinary school—one that speaks to his hard work and undeniable passion.

When his food photography hobby garners attention from an unexpected source, his dreams are finally within reach. The obstacle he never sees coming is the sharp-tongued bombshell with a distaste for all he stands for.

When Desmond accidentally captures a photo of Maggie during a moment of weakness, he starts to see there’s more to the fashionista than meets the eye…

Sometimes what can be seen through the lens is a skewed version of reality. A bent perspective. Manufactured, therefore losing all sense of authenticity. And sometimes all it takes is a different angle to see what’s right in front of you.

Through the LensThrough the Lens by K.K. Allen
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

4.5 stars KK Allen dishes out a sexy and sweet enemies-to-lovers romance lovers treat. Demond is a cooking school owner and teacher. Maggie, a one-time runaway model, and cooking school student, fails his class. At first, their relationship is like oil and water and didn’t mix well. Once they worked through some emotional baggage that tied the two together, they turned up the heat in the kitchen. The delicious build-up between Desmond and Maggie could create a picture-perfect cooking show unless they burn down the kitchen with their antics. One-click worthy.

A Contemporary Romance Novel
New York Times Bestselling Authors Penelope Ward & Vi Keeland


My planned trip for two unexpectedly turned into a trip for one.  Rather than let my breakup get me down, I packed my bags and decided a week at a luxury resort was just what I needed.
But one calamity after the next, and suddenly I was stuck without a hotel room, along with a few hundred other people.
It looked like my fancy vacation was about to turn into me sleeping on the hotel lobby floor.
Until I overheard a gorgeous man pretending to be someone he wasn’t in order to steal a reservation from a guest who hadn’t shown up yet.
When I realized there were two rooms, instead of calling him out, I pretended to be his sister. That’s how the story of “Milo and Maddie Hooker” began. 
We were the Hookers.
My depressing trip quickly made a U-turn into an adventure.  
My fake brother spent the next few days showing me around his hometown. When it was time to leave, neither of us really wanted to go yet. 
So, instead of flying back to our respective homes, we ventured on a road trip. 
At every stop, we’d pick up souvenirs.
But as hot as our chemistry was, we never crossed the line.
Milo knew I’d just come out of a tough relationship and didn’t want to mess with a vulnerable woman.
So instead, at the end of our trip, we made a pact to meet again in three months.   
It was always my intention to meet him.
But when I got back home, reality hit in a big way.
And I worried I may have lost my handsome stranger forever.
Was there a place for him in my future?
Or had the memory of him just become my favorite souvenir?

Review of My Favorite Souvenir 
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
I feel like hit the book lottery. I knew this book was going to be really good, but My Favorite Souvenir by Penelope Ward and Vi Keeland was nothing short of incredible. When my Kindle reached around the 30% mark, I was already in love with Milo and Maddie Hooker. At 60%, I decided that this book rivaled my love for their first co-authored New York Times and USA Today bestselling hit, Cocky Bastard. If you read Cocky Bastard, you know how insanely good it is. It's like a cult classic for these two. My Favorite Souvenir is about taking chances, living your best life, and following your heart no matter where it takes you. I'm not going to regurgitate the synopsis or dream of spoiling this book for you. All I will say is that you will be hooked on The Hookers! Vi and Penelope brought their A-game with this new release. You will also be hooked on all the fun, feels, and deliciously sexy build-up and banter.

At 430 am this morning, my husband woke up and said to me: “You’re still up reading?" You guys know my answer. After hitting a crazy plot twist, there was no way I was putting this extraordinary piece of Kindle Crack down. This book is magic. I shed both happy and sad tears, and I'm still grinning like and loon hours after I hit the last page. This story feels like a souvenir in itself. My book-loving heart will treasure this romantic magical adventure. MFS is on my best of 2020 list!

Review of More of Us 
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
More of Us picks up right where More of You left off. Cruz had to deal with his addiction issues, as well as family and band drama. Jade left Cruz to join a medical brigade in Honduras. Will their time apart throw Jade into the arms of another, or will she forgive Cruz and trust him again?
Like the other two books in the A Love You More Rock Star Romance series, More of Us was filled with a great mix of emotion and it was not overdramatic. I adored Jade and Cruz. What a perfect rock star-worthy ending to this trilogy.

Laura Pavlov writes sweet and sexy contemporary romance that will make you both laugh and cry. She is happily married to her college sweetheart, mom to two awesome almost-grown kids, and dog-whisperer to a couple crazy yorkies. Laura resides in Las Vegas where she is living her own happily ever after.
