The Finish Line Blurb

Secrets and Lies...


I’ve lived the entirety of my life wrapped up in subterfuge for one purpose—revenge.


Through the years, I lived more as an enigma than a man.


For so long, I denied I had a beating heart of my own.


Until her. Until she unearthed the starving vessel inside, forced me to acknowledge it, forced me to understand that I’m capable of bleeding the same as any other.


For that, we paid. We're still paying.


Yet, she demands it still, the useless heart of the ruthless thief and shameless villain she fell for. My fear is, I’m no longer that man.


With the lies I’ve told, the life I’ve led, my mistakes are beginning to catch up with me, day by day, one by one.


This is my last chance, and I have no intention of losing her again, but as the deception of my past starts to unravel and close in, shedding my humanity may be the only thing that can save us both.


Maybe it’s already too late.

Spoiler-Free Review: 

The Finish Line (The Ravenhood, #3)The Finish Line by Kate Stewart
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

If you read The Flock and Exodus, there is no way you are missing this book! The Finish Line is the final book in the Ravenhood series.  

This book picks off where Exodus left off. Since it’s been a while since I read Exodus, I thought I would skim it and get reacquainted with Tobias and Cecelia. Well, that didn’t work out as planned. I ended up pretty much re-reading it. IT WAS THAT GOOD. Then I devoured The Finish Line. 

Tobias tramples back into Cecelia’s life in order to win her back, all while dealing with a ton of emotional baggage. The Finish Line goes from Tobias’ past to present day, putting all of the pieces together.  Kate Stewart spun a wicked and addictive web of lies, passion, and devotion. This book is not to be missed. The Finish Line is one of my top reads of 2021 and total Kindle Crack. You must read this series in order.

Blurb:

Can you live a lie?


It’s a ghost town, this place that haunts me, the one that made me.

It’s clear to me that I’ll never outgrow Triple Falls or outlive the time I spent here.

I can still feel them all, my boys of summer.

Even when I’d sensed the danger, I gave in.

I didn’t heed a single warning. I let my sickness, my love, both rule and ruin me. I played my part, eyes wide open, tempting fate until it delivered.

There was never going to be an escape.

All of us are to blame for what happened. All of us serving our own sentences. We were careless and reckless, thinking our youth made us indestructible, exempt from our sins, and it cost us all.

I’m done pretending I didn’t leave the largest part of me between these hills and valleys, between the sea of trees that hold my secrets.

It’s the reason I’m back. To make peace with my fate.

And if I can’t grieve enough to cure myself in my time here, I’ll remain sick. That will be my curse.

But it’s time to confess, to myself more so than any other, that I’d hindered my chances because of the way I was built, and because of the men who built me.

At this point, I just want to make peace with who I am, no matter what ending I get.

Review of Exodus
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
I couldn't breathe until I hit the last page of Exodus (The Ravenhood Duet #2) by Kate Stewart. Exodus picked-up exactly where Flock (The Ravenhood Duet #1) left off, without skipping a beat.  Like the first book, Exodus is brilliantly written and equally seductive, savage, complex, and intense. The Ravenhood's secrets start to unravel through many intricate plot twists. You will not want to put this book down except to throw it at the wall. I felt for Cecelia. She reminded me of Bella Swan from the Twilight series with her romantic attachments and heartbreaking narrative.  There is a fine line between love, hate, and obsession, and Kate Stewart exposed every character's impenetrable nerve endings. I felt my heart splintering for Cecelia as she blindly navigated her life like a puppet in a twisted game of chess. Was she just a Pawn in a ruthless game or really a Queen of her own disastrous choices? This series is on my best of 2020 list!

Review + Giveaway: The Guy in the Middle by Kate Stewart

The Guy in the Middle by Kate Stewart is LIVE! Check out this jaw-dropping excerpt, spoiler-free review and Kate’s giveaway.  I LOVED this entire series so much. You can download this book now via Amazon or read for FREE in Kindle Unlimited. 

Buy Link: The Guy in the Middle - https://amzn.to/2uAk45o



Read for Free on Amazon


Synopsis: 

From the bestselling author of The Guy on the Right comes a heartwarming, steamy, second-chance romance. The Guy in the Middle is BOOK THREE of The Underdogs Series, but can be read as a stand alone.

I was born to play and bred to win.

My priorities were instilled in me early on—family and football. Those ideals led me to TGU and a coach whose ironclad principles mirrored my own.

With one last college season to play, my goal was singular—get drafted. By realizing my NFL dream, I could save my family, our ranch, and the only home I’d ever known.

Two birds, one ball.

Playing hard was my only option, but there’s always a wild card.

For all of my planning and hard work, I never anticipated falling for the coach's daughter. Harper was a fair catch, but who knew loving her could be the one play to throw my career before it started or that the weight of our secret would change the game.

Review of The Guy in the Middle
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
description

The Guy in the Middle by Kate Stewart broke my heart and put it back together one painful piece at a time. I loved the other two books so much, but the last book in this series was INCREDIBLE. This forbidden second chance romance hit me with a wicked one-two-punch to my heart. I shed a few tears, and if my heart could actually form a smile, this book would have made it happen.

The ending was so epic. All of the characters from the previous books made a special appearance allowing the conclusion to end with a real solid full-circle feel. I wanted to scream “Win, Lance, win!” at the end. I wanted Lance to win Harper’s heart, his match, and be the man he was destined to be. Lance and Harper's story is about sacrifice, second chances, and the beauty of true love. One-click this book and the first two books in the Underdog series. 


EXCERPT:
Harper

“I’ve missed you, you know? More than you can imagine.”

“Can’t imagine it at all,” he says, picking through a book he’s not reading.

“Can I help you two?” One of the store sales associates asks, and I shake my head and smile. When she takes her leave, I look over to Lance who stands fuming on the other side of a table filled with loose items. We’re in a mismatch shop full of mostly cheap junk, and I can’t imagine him finding anything for his mother here.

“Lance, I have missed you. Horribly.”

“Could have fooled me.”

I can only take so much. Irritated, I lift a designer coffee mug from the table.

“You like this for your mom?”

“No.”

“How about this?”

“Nope.” He’s not even looking at what’s in my hands.

“You sure? It’s a hide purse. Cute for a rancher’s wife, don’t you think?” This gets his attention, and stormy eyes lift to mine.

“Would you buy that for you?”

I look it over and shake my head. “Not really my style.”

“Bet it’s not.”

I can feel my ears reddening. Fuming, I eye a box on the shelf, snatch it and shove it into his chest. “How about this giant fucking purple dildo and matching anal plug!? Think mom will like that?”

He looks up completely unaffected, “Nope.”

“I don’t think we’re in the right place,” Tossing the box down, I stalk out of the cluttered shop and into the department store next to it. He’s hot on my heels.

“Got that fucking right.”

I turn back to see he’s spoiling for a fight and release a stressed breath. Fighting with him is the last thing I want to do. “Look, lets, just…” I search around and pull a sweater from the closest rack. “How about this? Simple, elegant.”

“You think Mom’s simple, huh? I’ll give her your regards.”

“That’s it.” I hook the sweater back on to the rack and close the space between us, forcing his eyes to mine. “God, you’re still a brute, aren’t you? You haven’t changed a bit. Still pig-headed as hell.”

“Pig-headed?” He opens his mouth in mock shock and covers his chest with his hand. “How dare you.”

I’m in between fight or flight, but I’ve been dodging this long enough. My heart can’t take more confrontation. I missed him too much. His eyes flare with satisfaction at my irritation. “Misery loves company, right, Lance?”

“Never said I was miserable.”

“You don’t have to. Did you come to New York just to torture me?”

“Maybe.”

“Rub it in on what I’m missing out on?”

A voice sounds from next to us. “Is there something I can help you find today?”

We both turn to the woman with lasers in our eyes, and she swallows. I clear my throat. “We’re fine. Thank you.”

Lance winks at the woman, his eyes scanning her form. “Maybe you can help me?”

“You son of a bitch,” I hiss, before walking away from the table. His voice rings out next to me as I rip through a rack of scarves.

“Good to know you care, Priss, gotta admit, it’s surprising.”

I reel on him. “Don’t you dare! Leaving you was the hardest thing I’ve ever done in my life. I had to make a clean break. I had just lost everyone that mattered to me. I was losing my mind.”

“I got pissed for one day, and you went off the grid.”

“And you let me go because you knew no matter how much we wanted it to work, it couldn’t. You have no idea what I went through!”

“What you went through? Do you know I spent six months ranting to an Uber driver named Dave because everyone on my team hated me when the truth came out?” He stomps after me as I pull sweater after sweater off the rack. “Troy jumped ship after he got drafted. I had no one but Tony and those fights.”

I turn to him with twenty sweaters in my arms. “Jenner? When did y’all get so tight?”

“When shit got tough, and my fucking girlfriend bailed!” He glares down at me, his breaths coming out fast.

“Guys, we’re going to need you to take this outside.” A woman whom I assume is the store manager approaches us cautiously.

I look around the store and see all eyes are on us, especially the women sizing him up. “He’s available ladies,” I snap, laying the sweaters on a nearby table, “I’m willing to bet he comes really cheap.” He’s on my heels as I push through the glass of the department store.

“Oh, was I supposed to wait for you? Must have missed that memo. That’s it, you must want a saint. That’s why you didn’t stay.”

“I was twenty years old and alienated from a place I didn’t want to be anyway.”

“Good to know.”

“That’s not the way I meant it. And you know damn well until you, I was only there to appease my Dad, who I barely speak to now.”

“I’m sorry about that, I am, but that’s on him. And what in the hell are you talking about ‘alienated’?”

“Forget it.” I pull on my gloves as heavy snow starts to come down. “I think we’ve concluded our tour for today.”

He glances around the sidewalk. “Well, no need to show me more, I hate this fucking place!”

“And why is that? Not enough free-range chickens?!”

His eyes flare. “You digging on the ranch now, Priss? I saw a fucking rat the size of a cat on my run this morning!”

“Probably has better manners than you, shit head.”

“Pulling out the big guns now, huh? There’s that backbone. I was wondering where it went.”

“Go home, Lance, you hate it here. And you obviously hate me.”

“Just the opposite. It’s impossible, and believe me, I’m trying!”

“Well, I hope you succeed! Thanks for stopping by, Mary Poppins. Best Christmas ever! Make sure to bulldoze the nativity scene on your way out!”

“Fuck this.” He throws his hands up and eyes me warily before turning and walking away.

“Merry Christmas to you, too!”

Blurb:
It started with a lie. A night of blurred lines between a teacher and a student.

I wasn’t her student, yet it was the single most defining night of my life.

I’ve never been the man she thinks I am.

Most people have no idea about the life I’ve lived or the words that ring true when it comes to me—still waters run deep.

But you’d be hard-pressed to find a coed on the TGU campus who knows otherwise…because I’ve never corrected them.

The clock is ticking down, it’s Fourth and Inches with the ball inside the one-yard line and the focus is on me, The Guy on the Left. I’ve never felt like a football god, inside I’m…just Troy.

It’s time to set the record straight.

For my son, I‘ll find the strength.

In her eyes, I’m determined to gain redemption.

I will have them both, even if I have to take my eye off the ball.

*The Guy on the Left is a stand alone novel in the Underdogs Series. This is Troy's story.

Review of The Guy on the Left

My rating: 5 of 5 stars
I fell hard for Theo in The Guy on the Right. I couldn’t imagine falling for Troy after his antics in TGOTR. But let me tell you, The Guy on the Left is IT for me. My head and heart are spinning after devouring this book. I have emotional whiplash. Clarissa and Troy’s tumultuous relationship made me want to both throw and hug my Kindle at the same time. Their relationship was heartbreaking, heartwarming, angsty, and everything in between. I love Kate’s writing. I didn’t even bother to read the blurb for this book and just jumped right in. She’s on my auto one-click list. She writes it, and I’m reading it.

This book is a stand-alone in the Underdog Love Story series. You don’t have to read The Guy on the Right first in order to enjoy this book (BUT you should, it’s one of my favorites). I’m thrilled that Kate has another Underdog book in the works! The Guy in the Middle is coming this winter 2020!

FYI this book includes some awesome recipes. You’ll understand once you read it. The Underdog Moms Cookbook rocks! I think I gained a few extra pounds reading this delicious story.

New Romance Book


Blurb:
Strike One-My mother named me Theodore after her favorite chipmunk.

Not cool, Mom.

I‘ve spent most of my life answering to Teddy, because I couldn’t make Theo work.

Except for here. College. The place where all bets are off, and I’ve managed to redeem myself.
There’s only one problem, my new roommate, Troy, is football royalty and looks like he stepped off the set of an Abercrombie shoot.

Doesn’t matter, I cook a mean breakfast for his panty parade, and we get along well.
And anyway, this year I got the girl. And she’s perfect.

That’s right. Theodore Houseman, former band geek, now marching band rock star has finally landed the girl of his dreams.

Everything is perfect.

That is, until Troy takes a good look at her.

I’m not going down without a fight. As a matter of fact, I’m not going down at all. As glorious as these days may be for my all-star roommate, Laney is my end game.

I may not know much about play strategy, but I’ve been the good guy my whole life. I’ve been listening and I know exactly what women want. Framed in a picture standing next to me, Troy may seem like Mr. Perfect, but he’s underestimating the guy on the right.

Spoiler alert: In this story, the underdog is going to win.
