A new, sexy standalone from #1 New York Times Bestseller, Vi Keeland.
When I first encountered Ford Donovan, I had no idea who he was…well, other than the obvious. Young, gorgeous, successful, smart. Did I mention young? If I did, it bears repeating. Ford Donovan was too young for me.
Let’s back up to how it all started. My best friend decided I needed to start dating again. So, without my knowledge, she set up a profile for me on a popular dating site—one that invited men ages twenty-one to twenty-seven to apply for a date. Those nicknamed Cunnilingus King were told they’d go straight to the top for consideration. The profile wasn’t supposed to go live. Another point that bears repeating—it wasn’t supposed to.
Nevertheless, that’s how I met Ford, and we started messaging.
He made me laugh; yet I was adamant that because of his age, we could only be friends. But after weeks of wearing me down, I finally agreed to one date only—my first after twenty years of being with my high school sweetheart. I knew it couldn’t last, but I was curious about him.
Though, you know what they say…curiosity kills the cat.
My legs wobbled walking into the restaurant.
Ford was seated at the bar. When he turned around, he took my breath away.
His sexy smile nearly melted my panties.
But…he looked so familiar.
As I got closer I realized why.
He was the son of the neighbor at our family’s summer home.
The boy next door.
Only now…he was all man.
I hadn’t seen him in years.
I left the restaurant and planned to put the entire crazy thing behind me.
Which I did. Until summer came.
And guess who decided to use his family’s summer home this year?
An older woman, younger man romance.
I loved it!! Vi Keeland never fails to draw me in with her interesting characters, a perfect balance of hotness and addictive story-line.
I loved Ford, the hottie next door, the boy who used to babysit for her son when he was a teen at their summer beach house and now he's all grown up, a hottie but a hottie that has the hots for Valentina.
I loved the push and pull in the beginning. Valentina had so many doubts about why she couldn't' enter into a relationship with a younger man and even though she was now single, divorced and experiencing life again, a relationship with a man 12 years younger was something she just couldn't allow herself to experience but Ford was persistent, he was a man who knew exactly what he wanted and went for it.
Ford owned his own business had been the carer for his sister when his parents died in a car accident, he was mature and a hottie to boot.
I loved both of these characters and the hea was heartwarming.
I listened to this in audio and I thoroughly enjoyed Andi Arndt and Sebastian York's narration, they are a great team,always do the characters justice and I always enjoy audio from these two narrators.

They warned me not to take this job.
They said you were ruthless, impossible to please…
I said I was better than them.
I wouldn’t fall for your charm, your arrogance, or how sexy you fill out that suit.
I wouldn’t fall for your deep brown eyes or the way that muscle moves in your square jaw when you’re pissed.
I said I could resist you.
I was wrong...
(BOSS OF ME is a STAND-ALONE workplace, enemies to lovers, military romance with a badass alpha boss and the feisty woman who steals his heart. No cheating. No cliffhangers.)

Enemies to lovers, office romance, great characters.
This was a good read with a perfect balance of hotness, story line and leads to a hea.
Patton Fletcher is an intense broody hero, a retired soldier who is used to not only bossing people around but watching over those in his care. I guess even though he has now left the forces he can't switch off and has an intense constant worry for his friend Marley who he and his team rescued when he was taken and held hostage while serving in the forces and Marley hasn't been the same since, most of the plot focuses on Marley. To be honest I was more intrigued about Marley, he had more going on in regards to angst and drama and I would be really interested in reading his story.
Raquel was the new hire in his office, she was clever, extremely intelligent but at the same time didn't come across as a nerd, she was likeable but not exciting. There was instant chemistry between the two but the push and pull didn't last long at all, so I wouldn't really class this as an enemies lovers story as I know it but it was good and entertaining.
Boss of me was a romance that had a little angst, a good plot, hotness and a heartwarming hea.
From New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Rachel Van Dyken comes a new story in her Eagle Elite series…
Every family has rules, the mafia just has more....
Do not speak to the bosses unless spoken to.
Do not make eye contact unless you want to die.
And above all else, do not fall in love.
Renee Cassani's future is set.
Her betrothal is set.
Her life, after nannying for the five families for the summer, is set
Somebody should have told Vic Colezan that.
He's a man who doesn't take no for an answer.
And he only wants one thing.
Somebody should have told Renee that her bodyguard needed as much discipline as the kids she was nannying.
Good thing Vic has a firm hand.

I was hooked from the first chapter and read in one sitting.
What a dilemma Vic was in. Vic was sworn into the Mafia family to protect, to focus on his job as the enforcer, he was to be celibate with no distractions, he was a lethal weapon for the family and whoever needed him but at the end of the day he was also just a man.
Vic was drawn to the nanny Renee, a member of the mafia family who was watching over Nixon and Trace's daughter, Serena, her own father is part of the mafia family and she is helping for the summer until she goes to college. Vic tried to fight off his feelings for Renee, failure would mean punishment for breaking his vow by blood to the family, but the need and desire becomes to much even for a man as hard and fierce as Vic Abandanado .
I haven't read all this series and regardless of that I didn't feel like there was anything I missed, the plot was solely focused on the two characters and their story, it did, however, have me wanting to know more about all the secondary characters and what their history was and who they were. I can see this series being highly addictive to a mafia romance lover like myself, it was a perfect mix of danger, hotness and mafia madness, with twists and turns, it also had humor in certain parts of the plot to lighten the mood and help it feel real, I loved it.
A really good mafia read, I thoroughly enjoyed it and the characters and I am certainly going to check out more books in this series. Although this is classed as a novella with over 20 chapters you sure do get a good read.
1001 Dark Nights is a brilliant idea for readers and authors. It really does give you the opportunity to experience a book from a series that can be read as a standalone and introduces you to a series. I loved it.

Stefan Sabbioni showed up in my bedroom on my sixteenth birthday. Uninvited, he stood in the shadows smelling of whiskey and death and wrapped a broken, blood-crusted necklace around my neck.
I thought he’d strangle me with it.
That night, he left a message for my father. He said he’d be back to take something precious.
I never delivered that message, though. I wonder if things would be different if I had because now, two years later, he’s back. And he’s not hiding in any shadows.
He’s come to make good on his promise.
He’s back to take that something precious.
Marchese is the manipulator of my family’s tragedy. I won’t just bring him to his knees. I’ll bury him for what he did.
Taking his daughter is only the beginning. I’ll do it knowing I’m starting a war. I’ll do it knowing my enemies will become his allies. They’ll stop at nothing to destroy me and he’ll stop at nothing to get her back.
I’ve never shied away from war, though. I’m not one to play nice and I don’t share my toys. I’ll demolish you if you touch what’s mine.
And she is most definitely mine.

Bloody brilliant!! I need the next book like air.
Oh wow, I don't even know where to start with this, I devoured it.
Garbriela Marchese, a young woman used as a bargaining chip, a pawn in a mafia game of who has the most power. Poor Gabriela, for all of her life she has been the princess in the tower with a mafia boss father who restricted her, she was home schooled, had no friends, no mobile phone and very little access to the outside world and her life was mapped out, she was to be a wife of whoever her father chooses that will bring wealth and more strength to the family.
Stefan Sabbioni, hot damn, let me swoon a minute, he's power, demanding, A Sicilian mafia boss and a man out for revenge. Stefan is bitter following the death of his brother and discovering a rival family is to blame he wants to hit the Marchese family were it hurts and what better way than to take the Boss's daughter, something personal.
Whatever Stefan has over Gabriela's father has him agreeing to an arranged marriage and the day after meeting with Gabriela's father, Stefan takes her to his home in preparation for the marriage.
Gabriela has backbone, she's feisty, sassy and is more than capable of standing up for herself, she hates the Mafia and what she has seen in her lifetime but this is her life.
I loved how these two are insanely attracted to each other but don't voice it, I loved the chemistry, the heat and the sparks coming off them when they were in the same room, I can't wait for more.
Oh my, and then there are the twists and turns, so much going on in this plot and to top it off, the cliffhanger I was left with that has me chomping at the bit to get to the next book.
This isn't my first Natasha Knight book but she is quickly becoming my go to author for angsty Mafia romance.
Brilliant, I cannot wait for more.
"You’re my assistant."
The magic words every girl at Trinity Academy is dying to hear.
But I’m the one who gets stuck with Mason Chargill, the star of most women’s fantasies but my nightmare. One of the heirs to CRC Holdings, he might be dangerously gorgeous, but his cold and callous demeanor makes him an ice prince.
He expects me to abide by the Academy’s hierarchy, to be at his constant beck and call.
Yeah, right… hell will freeze over before that ever happens.
Unfortunately for him, I’m no pushover.
Unfortunately for me, he’s determined to break me.
If only there were a way to melt the shard of ice he calls a heart.
This is Book 2 in The Trinity Academy Series.
All 3 books are interconnected, and some plots have been carried over from the 1st book and will be carried over to the final book in this series.
"She's always smiling as if life is nothing but unicorn farts and butterflies shitting all over the fucking flowers. It irritates the living fuck out of me"
Wow, this has to be my favourite one yet. I did not put this book down!!
My impression of Mason from the first book Falcon was he was basically a moody Alpha-hole, well he didn't prove me wrong there but as the story progressed you get to see more of the real man behind the mood, you see the hurt and the reasons for Mason being Mason to those who don't know him.
"I fell for a feisty girl with zero style. I fell for the smile, which used to annoy me. I fucking fell."
I loved Kingsley, she is a young woman who definitely does not take any crap from anyone and even though people fear Mason because of his power and wealth and his status at the academy she isn't the kind of person to back down and she gives as good as she gets. Kingsley may not be the type of bimbo type woman Mason normally goes for but she is definitely his match.
"You were literally a light that forced your way through the darkness. I became accustomed to after I lost my sister"
A brilliant frenemies to lovers story and a thrilling addition to this series, I was hooked from page one I could not wait to read Kingsley and Masons story from what I had read in the previous book, I knew I was in for some hot and fiery treat and I was not disappointed.
I loved how the guys were more playful in this book too and how you got more of an insight to their friendship dynamic.
I laughed, I swooned, I felt the angst and the heartwarming moments. I loved it and can't wait for more.
Trinity academy is a series, each book is focused on a different character but the plot does continue so cannot be read as a standalone. I would totally recommend starting this book beginning with Falcon and Layla's story.

My favourite men of music.
Only one of them within reach.
The night before Presley West was due to leave our small town of Hollings Hill, all of my high school fantasies came to life. He finally wanted me. Eight years I’d spent pining, and now I, bar-tending Tessa Lisbon, was going to make damn sure I made that night count before the music industry stole him.
Never screw your idols. That’s what they say, right? Well, I did, and I did it well. So well, I somehow managed to screw my own heart in the process.
He gave me one night to convince him to stay. In the end, I begged him to go.
But that’s the thing about rock stars: they do what they want, when they want, and forever didn’t end up being as long as I expected.
Presley was back, and with his face, voice, and music now everywhere I turned, I officially had nowhere left to run.

This book is like a rhythm, one slow beat after another until the rising tempo or was that my heart?.
Amazing! CHERRY BEATS is the first debut book by Author Vicki James, also known as Victoria L James, author of A GIRL LIKE LILAC and NATEXUS among others and just like those books this author rocked it out of the arena, name change, but same great memorable stories.
A journey, a story about the rise to fame and stardom of a rock-star and all the glory, the temptations and the nasty that comes along with it, and a love story that would survive it all.
A school crush that became so much more, A rock-star crush that was always so much more. A one night stand that was never just meant to be just one night. .
Tessa Lisbon has been in love with 15 year old Presley since she first saw him take the school stage with his drum sticks in the air. "I saw how music could be a part of someones soul. The quiet boy who'd stared at the floor like he didn't care had gone with the first hit of his stick on the snare drum. He'd been transformed into a rock god before my eyes"
Eight years later and Tess worked at a bar, every night she watched Presley from afar, different night, different girl hanging off him, until just before he was due to go on his first tour, a tour that would change his life forever, Tess finally got her piece of the man of her dreams, the boy she had longed for, for so long from a distance.
Presley didn't just become a rock-star when he left, he became magazines hottest man of the year and Tess was left with the memories of their one night together, a night no other could compare to, Presley ruined her for any other man.
"He was everywhere on my skin, in my mind, in my veins, in every song, I'd ever sung"
There's a steady paced tempo to Cherry Beats and from the first chord of this addictive romance I was mesmerised. I clung to every word and action by these characters. From the moment Presley West stood on his high school stage and claimed the heart of Tessa Lisbon and through the years that followed.
"We were only ever meant to be a one night thing" I whispered.
"Isn't that how all best love stories start"
A story that is raw and real, with hotness and humor. At times I held on with bated breath waiting for that crashing symbol to fall but it never came, Presley became my idol in those moments. There's no cheating thank god, I think this what I was dreading more than anything especially with his lifestyle as a rock-star, this was the crashing symbol I was waiting for, Tessa had truly captured my heart she was quirky, sassy and I wanted it all for her, I wanted her to get her dream too, which was only ever about the boy behind the drums.
I can honestly look back after finishing and say, this is an epic love story, recommended for any music fan, romance fan, those who gush over first loves, second chances and stories of hopes and dreams, Cherry Beats has it all.
Cherry Beats is a top of the charts hit. Told in first person pov. Leads to hea. I want more, more from the band, I am definitely looking forward to whatever Vicki James brings next.
As a former member of the United States Secret Service, I’m no stranger to putting my life on the line in the name of duty. Having left the nation’s capital to re-settle in Pittsburgh, the skills I acquired during my tenure in Washington have made me a valued member of the team at Jameson Force Security. But when the President comes seeking a favor to protect his niece, I find myself on the fast track back to the Oval Office.
Simply put… she’s beyond brilliant. A nationally renowned energy scientist, Barrett Alexander is on the verge of a breakthrough that will change the world. Unfortunately, that has also made her the target of a suspected terrorist cell. And while Barrett doesn’t believe she’s in any real danger, the President isn’t willing to take chances with her life.
As the threats against Barrett become more calculated, I decide taking her on the run is her best chance of survival. Danger, isolation, and attraction ensure we grow closer than I’d ever thought possible.
When I realize I want to keep her safe for reasons that have nothing to do with my job and everything to do with the woman I’ve fallen in love with, no one is safe from the hell I’ll rain down on those that threaten her

Another great addition to the series.
CODE NAME SENTINEL is the second book in this thrilling series.
If you love the bodyguard kind of trope then your in for a treat.
Cruce Britton is one of the task force at Jameson Force security, he's already saved the presidents life once when he was a member of the secret service and now he works for Kynen along with other members of the newly established team. Kynen's own romance and story is in the first book of the series CODE NAME GENESIS not too dissimilar to this one but with more of a second chance romance trope.
Bennett Alexander is one of the world's leading energy scientist and she's getting close to changing the world with clean energy, she is also the Presidents niece so when her life comes into jeopardy the President calls in a favour once again and Cruce is the one detailed to protect her.
There is instant chemistry between Cruce and Bennett and although they are totally different characters it worked.
Bennett is the type of woman who spends all her time dedicating herself to her theories and work, hiding herself away in a lab or in her office, she isn't very worldly and hardly ever does anything outside of work.
Cruce is all action, a real action man, and he gradually persuades Bennett to take time out and have more experiences in life, of course she has no choice when she is taken away to an island for her protection but just getting away despite the threats she is under gets her out of her work bubble.
Bennett's eyes begin to open a little more as she begins to spend more time with Cruce, she also begins to fall hard for her protector.
There's danger, action and adventure and a heartwarming romance that develops between Cruce and Bennett. There are great secondary characters too with other members of the Jameson Security team and I am looking forward to the next book in the series.
Another exciting addition to this addictive series. Can be read as a standalone and told in first person pov.
A heartbreaking mature YA novel from the author of the bestselling contemporary romance, Harley & Rose.
Cancer sucks … and then you die.
Alaska Stone is a walking wet dream.
My wet dream.
For years, I’ve watched her in the halls, wanted her, but she never knew I existed.
Not until she walked into my chemo session.
For me, it was love at first sight.
For her? It might take a little longer.
But hey, it’s not like we’re on a deadline or anything.
You know that saying "may as well make the most of it"? "make good out of a bad situation" well, you could say these characters did that.
Styx Hendricks was an amazing and inspirational character with a terminal illness and he dragged Alaska Stone right along with him on their journey into forever, their positivity was infectious.
Two people with terminal illness, two people who find love and comfort in each other in their last days.
"Our diagnoses brought us together, but it may be the very thing that tears us apart."
To say I was an absolute snotty, tearful, blubbering mess when I finished this book would be an understatement. This book is going to take some getting over.
What a heartbreaking and heartwarming story . How bittersweet. Carmen Jenner you broke me with your wonderful, inspiring words and these beautiful characters.
I laughed, I cried, I finished in awe.
"We're gonna be late," Stones whispers. "Late for what?" She grins and presses her lips to mine. "Forever."

This broke me, put me together, then broke me again. What a roller-coaster of emotions.
I love story's of first loves, the bad boy who completely sweeps the good girl of her feet kind of romance. I was immediately sucked into Dylan and Aubrey's story. This book is a journey, one where my heart hurt for these characters over and over.
I felt the joys, the angst, the heartbreak. M. Robinson has a way of taking your there right along with the characters.
I listened to this book in audio and it always has more of an effect on me emotionally especially when the narrator gets into character and this was definitely brilliantly narrated. And that southern drawl (inserts dribble emoji)
This is one angsty and emotional read. UNDO ME sucked me in, oh how I love a teen romance that leads to more, but how wrong was I, this book is unpredictable to say the least. It isn't without its frustrations either, the characters will frustrate you, the plot will frustrate you especially if your the kind of person who just wants to get to the hea. The way the story jumps to the future too is also frustrating especially with the way it jumps in years from one part in time then all of a sudden its two years later but I suppose how else would you fit over 16 years of two peoples lives and their journey into one book without doing that, the jumps just felt sudden at times, that would be my only negative about that but I loved it!
First love, mistakes, regrets, heartache, romance, pasts, present and futures, heartwarming moments all in the name of destiny.
"You've always had my heart and I've always been your home. I'm your soft place to fall"
UNDO ME is a book that will stick with me and definitely one I would recommend.

A throwaway & a Princess.
Both of us are messed up, both of us pretending.
I’ve played with her, manipulated and bullied her, right up until the moment I realised how much I wanted her.
When I was planning to beg for forgiveness, someone else was planning her demise.
Her crown might have slipped but no one will ever be able to take it away, she’s a Princess, my Princess to the very core.
I’ve spent every moment of the last few years counting down for my freedom, now I want to be caught and bound to her.
Archer’s Creek was where I was forced to come; now it’s the only place I’ve ever wanted to stay.
Can she forgive me or has my past left me beyond redemption?
What can I say....I want more.
Found is the conclusion to Hidden, Valentine and Nova's story and cannot be read as a standalone.
Honestly, it didn't feel like two books, I finished one and immediately jumped into the next and was a little sad when I reached the end. I wanted the whole hea, the wedding, the pregnancy, that's how much I didn't want to let go and that's the romantic in me but they are only eighteen for goodness sake, I had to remind myself that but I do hope to see more of Nova and Valentine in future books.
I loved the whole family feel, it still had the MC kind of feel where family is a priority, no one messes with a Sinner's kid.
I adored the extended characters too and the flawless plot that gave me a smooth ride right up to the end.
A high school romance that was so much more, a bully romance that became so much more, it all switched around in the second book. Questions were answered, my doubts about the character's and their actions were squashed. Valentine had his say more in this book and there was more from his point of view, Valentine went from the huge A-hole in book one to the broken boy you just wanted to wrap your arms around.
"We two are a pair, I'm crazy and he's fucked up; maybe it's our jagged edges that pull us toward each other, maybe it's that were each so frayed and distorted that we fit"
I would definitely recommend this duet, I was glued to my kindle from start to finish. Like I said in my previous review, I have read a lot of books were the kids are from a mafia family and rule the school so to speak, this is my first of this kind where the kids are from an MC and I loved it. Fans of LJ Shen will love this too.

I’m the Princess of the Doomsday Sinners MC.
The most popular girl in school.
My name is Nova Stubbs and all of those words have been used to describe me, they define me. Or at least that’s what people think.
No-one except my family ever bothered to look past the mask I wear, the role I play. Because this is what they want me to be, who they expect.
If they looked a little deeper they’d see the crumbling mess I am.
I care too much and hate who I pretend to be. My mind is too loud and it consumes me. Staying hidden is the only way I survive.
Then Valentine Miller steps into my world.
He hates me. He manipulates me and controls me. But when I’m with him he makes the world quiet.
Love. Hate. Need. Want. I feel them all when he touches me.
Valentine wants to ruin me and I might let him.
It's time for the next generation...
Hidden is available on all platforms now https://books2read.com/hiddengw
The next generation, I love these kind of books. You've seen the parents fall in love and now it's down to the kids.
This book though can be read as a standalone and the previous series does not need to be read.
This is Nova's story, The biker princess of the Doomsday Sinners and the boy who takes her crown.
Hidden is based in a high school setting and most of the scenes revolve around high school, so this is quite different from Gemma Weir's previous MC books but you still have the hotness, the alpha male character, the feel of the MC togetherness with Nova and her other family members who all attend the same school.
Nova is a messed up kind of girl, the plot immediately thrusts you into the mind of Nova, her inner battles and the many wars she has with herself, a teenage girl with anxiety, though I couldn't figure out the root of her anxiety when she's from a stable, strong and loving family.
Nova is the daughter of an MC club member and since the start of school Nova has played to her peers expectations of being a mean girl when inside she was anything but, at home she would let her mask fall and just be Nova.
Nova put on a show she thought they all expected in school but hated every minute of it, she was a little bit of a contradiction because she acted boldly, the high school bitch and yet in her thoughts she feared being talked about, whispered about, yet her actions justified being talked about, whispered about and by being the school Bitch and top dog she thought people wanted, she also made herself unapproachable....See, messed up?
Valentine comes onto the scene as the new guy in school with the bad boy vibe and boy was he bad and he immediately takes a dislike to Nova, even before school when he meets Nova at her Aunts home when he is introduced as the new foster kid and new member to their home. But yes its instant dislike with Nova, how he did that with one glance I don't know.
Valentine claims he sees her, the real her, the false her and he makes it his mission to make her uncomfortable, fear him by tormenting her, threatening her and his reason? well, that was a little unclear but I'm sure all will be revealed in the next book.
HIDDEN is a short bully romance that finishes with a cliffy but the next book FOUND will also be ready to jump into.
I enjoyed it, in fact I didn't put it down from start to finish, it was intense, hot, unpredictable, it had an L.J Shen kind of feel to it with her mafia series, if you like that authors work, give this a shot.
I think this is the first series I'm starting were the kids are from an MC and in high school kind of setting, I've read plenty of Mafia books similar, so I love this, it's refreshing when something is different from your norm.
Looking forward to the next book and conclusion also with other characters already drawing me to them I'm looking forward to the series too.
Told in first person pov.
Infatuation is a dangerous thing.
It devours you. Manipulates you. Owns you.
You can try to ignore it, try to move past it. But it’s more powerful than you. It won’t let go.
The day I first saw him, infatuation dug its claws into my soul. I couldn’t stop it. Everything faded. Except him.
My infatuation blinded me. Made me see what it wanted me to see. Now I’m lost within the lie. Caged by the beast.
In the end, he will have me.
Until then…I fight.

DEFIANT is the second part to Alyx and Granite's story and cannot be read as a standalone.
Jumping straight in from the first book DEPRAVED, the angst, danger, threats from a club rival and bloodshed continue while Alyx who is the Police commissioners daughter also still remains a captive to the American street Kings MC and under Granite's spell.
This is no ordinary captive falling for her captor kind of romance, Alyx and Granite already had this weird lust from a distance, through a window thing going on for a while even before she was taken/kidnapped but their relationship becomes more real now, definitely more physical, Granite finally has her in his possession and as days pass she begins to realise she possesses him just as much.
There's a lot of angst in DEFIANT, dark and gritty scenes, there was ways something happening and its a hard book to put down once you start.
Alyx was once a controlled child, moulded into what her mother wanted her to be and even as an adult she didn't have the strength to break free, until Granite. I enjoyed the conclusion but I still needed that little bit more to convince me Alyx was finally happy, healthy and content especially with what she had suffered from her mother.
This book does end on a sort of cliffy but it has more to do with what is going on in the club rather than Alyx and Granite's relationship.
I would read the next book in the series, the other characters are interesting and despite the grit and darkness in he plot, this MC is one of the good ones were they treat each other as family and look after their own.
Looking forward to the next book in the series.
The NHL’s been at my door since I was 18.
But I’d never leave the Swedish Hockey League—
Not while raising my little brother.
But now he’s grown and the Carolina Reapers show up with my greatest weakness:
Langley Pierce, their new head of PR.
I’ve never been able to say no to her.
She’s fierce, independent, and the sexiest woman I’ve ever met.
She also has a stubborn streak wider than my entire country.
One comment from her smart mouth about never dating again, and I propose.
No, really, I actually propose:
A six-month marriage contract in exchange for signing with the Reapers.
I want to date this woman so badly that I’m going to marry her first.
I’ll use each day to show her how a queen should be treated.
Our wedding day started a countdown I’m powerless to stop,
And the faster the months fly, the harder I fall.
She’s sworn she’ll never choose a man over her career,
And I promised never to ask her to.
Until I’m forced to.
How can we move forward when we started this whole thing backwards?
If I can’t convince her this marriage is anything but fake—
The next document we sign will crush us both.
Welcome to the Carolina Reapers, Samantha Whiskey’s newest hockey series where the chill of the ice meets sultry southern nights.
One Click now: smarturl.it/AxelWhiskey
This was fabulous for my first ever book by this author, I will be coming back for more.
Axel is basically a Swedish hockey player, a very sought after one.
Axel was left as sole carer for his brother following his parents death, he takes family and his hockey seriously but now his brother is older and moving towards his own career Axel can now start thinking about himself after years of putting his brother first.
Langley is head of PR for an American hockey team that want him.
They have met each other before, Axel's childhood best friend plays for the same team Langley represents. After refusing to move no matter what figure they offer the club's òwner send in the big guns in the firm of Langley as they know he likes her.
Axel more than likes her, he has wanted Langley since he first laid eyes on her at a function.
Axel agrees to go only if Langley will marry him.
Langley does come across as shallow, I mean who wouldn't think that if a woman marries to help her career, she is very much a career-driven woman which may also give you the impression of her being cold but as the plot develops, as the chemistry begins to happen, this story turns out to quite swoon-worthy, heartwarming and hot!.
An enjoyable read, no spoilers to previous books in the series given and I'm looking forward to reading more from Samantha Whiskey.
The last time I saw Declan St. James was at our rehearsal dinner. That was shortly before he jilted me at the altar. To avoid the swarm of whispers and finger pointing every time I dared to show my face in public, I fled two hours south to Atlanta and never looked back. Over the last decade, I’d planned hundreds of scenarios about how our next meeting would go down. The expletives I’d hurl at him. Which knee I might use to annihilate his balls. Which dimpled cheek on his ridiculously handsome face I would send a stinging slap across.
But being elbow deep in a cow’s ass was not one of them.
Normally, I didn’t get up close and personal to a bovine’s rectum. At least not since veterinarian school. But desperate times found me back home to attend my grandfather’s funeral, who happened to be the town’s large animal vet. Those two facts had left me wading through manure in Roy Wallace’s pasture to care for a distressed heifer.
While time and maturity seemed to have changed him from the boy I knew, I still wasn’t falling for his charm. Or his hard, chiseled body. Or ass you could eat dinner off of.
No, I wasn’t going back down that street again. Unfortunately, Declan didn’t seem to get the message. Instead, he seemed as stubborn as he ever was and ready for a fight. It’ll be the fight of his life for me to let him back in my heart.

In an instant, I screwed everything up.

A fast-paced MC romance where the savage lies will either bind them together or keep them apart.
Book 7 in the Savage Angels MC Series.
I've been following this series from the very beginning and it's always great catching up with the Savage Angels MC.
Cass and Zeke's story draws you in from the beginning with the chemistry and hotness these two characters have with each other but it isn't without its twists and turns, there's also lots more going on outside their relationship with the MC and other characters too.
Told in first person multiple pov so you get a good insight to all characters involved in the plot as each has their own view on what's going down, it's different and I like how the author has done this.
Although this is an MC series and not without its danger and drama's it's also not what I would class as dark MC, I found it perfectly balanced with humour, suspense, family loyalty, hotness and heartwarming moments.
This book doesn't end on a major cliffhanger but it sure does make you wonder what's going to happen next in the Savage Angels MC world when something else happens that puts one of their loved ones in danger.
A good series to follow starting with Savage Stalker were the president of the MC Dane Reynolds falls for the rockstar and idol, Kat Saunders.

There were always whispers about my roommate at Hillcrest Academy.
The wealthiest of the wealthy sent their kids to our boarding school, and Brooke Bennett had been at the top, though I never quite knew why. She was fun and outgoing, but she kept quiet about her family. The only things she showed me were photographs of her brothers.
I became fascinated with her second-oldest brother. Kai Bennett.
He was the most of them all. Smoldering. Hypnotic. Alluring.
Kai had eyes that pulled me in and a face that haunted my dreams.
Then I met him.
He came to our school with their father, and that’s when I learned what kind of family Brooke came from. They were mafia, and Brooke’s oldest brother was dead. Her father said accident, but Brooke said murder.
Three months later, her father died, and Kai became the head of the Bennett Family. Brooke left Hillcrest for good, and that was the last time I saw her.
Fourteen years later, I’m staring at her face on the television. Brooke is missing.
Two days later, Kai Bennett kidnaps me.
I finally got around to this book, since I first saw the cover I wanted it and it didn't disappoint, I loved it. What a roller-coaster ride, Kai is hypnotic, I couldn't get enough.
And finally, a Mafia romance that isn't teenage boys being the Big I am.
I love Tijan's previous books based in a high school setting, I love all her books don't get me wrong but the age of the characters is something I sometimes struggle with, I love Tijan's writing, her plots, the characters but the actions of the characters, it never feels real or believable to me when the bad guy is a teen, I end up having too many doubts due to the age of the characters, I spend most of the time questioning things, trying to reason with what I am reading, I try and forget about the age and picture older characters until I am reminded about the setting or their age, this isn't just this author I have read a few books were the bad guy is in high school, the head of the Mafia, or a gang leader. Anyway moving on...........
This book though, this felt more believable, Kai Bennett was danger, he was a brooding alpha, he was alluring and the head of the Mafia, he was also maturer, this was no teenager finding his feet, playing Mafia, Kai Bennett was the Mafia, hang on; just let me wipe away my dribble.
A slow burn romance with intense moments, there's danger, kidnappings, angst, hotness, twists and turns, damn this was good.
Another brilliant read from Tijan, my favourite yet.
I listened this in audio, it took a bit to get into, boy was the narrator hyped up, I spent the first few chapters tense and couldn't relax, its like she had had a bag of blue sweets or something before reading, she sure did put everything into it but in the angst moments her enthusiasm really brought it all to life.
Everyone hates parts of their job.
Maybe it’s the paperwork. Maybe it’s the day-to-day grind. Maybe it’s that client who never knows what they want, or the guy who always cooks fish in the microwave.
But not me. I love every corner of the Longbourne Flower Shop, every flower, every petal, every stem. I love the greenhouse, and I love Mrs. Bennet, my boss. I love creating, and I love being a florist. I don’t hate anything at all.
Except for Luke Bennet.
The Bennet brothers have come home to help their mom save the flower shop, and Luke is at the helm. His smile tells a tale of lust, loose and easy. He moves with the grace of a predator, feral and wild. A thing unbridled, without rules or constraint.
When he comes home to save Longbourne, I almost can’t be mad at him.
He doesn’t remember that night I’ll never forget. That kiss, touched with whiskey and fire. It branded me like a red-hot iron. But it meant nothing to him.
Everyone hates part of their job, and I hate Luke Bennet.
Because if I don’t, I’ll fall in love with him.
*Spinoff of The Austen Series
Coming Up Roses is LIVE and available in KU! 💐
Coming Up Roses is an enemies to lovers or friends to lovers Romance with angst, funny moments, hotness, swoon- worthy moments and a whole bunch of sweetness.
The story begins when all the Bennet family siblings returning home to help their mother save the family business, the family business has gone from a chain of flower shops down to just the one which has been in their family for generations. Each family member puts in their own skills and the mission is on to save the business and bring it up to date, with the times and back on it's feet.
Tess has worked for Mrs Bennet for years, from when she was at school, she was also once the best friend of Luke Benet the youngest sibling in the Bennett family until Luke broke her heart and hurt her feelings.
Tess had always liked Luke, they were best friends and even worked with each other in the shop when they were younger. A night of whiskey in the greenhouse has Luke and Tess's friendship taking a drastic turn.
Tess after years of crushing on Luke finally gets a kiss from him, she thinks she is finally getting her man but things aren't quite as she imagined them to be when next morning Luke in his hung over state has forgotten all about the kiss and whispered promises the night before and he just goes straight back into friend mode with Tess.
Tess is hurt, does she tell him, how can he forget a night she will remember forever?? the icing on the cake is when he starts dating other girls, one being her best friend. .
Tess is no doormat and backs off, her hurt turns to anger and over the years hate, so when Luke waltzes in the door years later after living away from home and she discovers he will be working along side her at the shop and also tries to pick up their friendship, Tess is anything but happy, Luke Bennett is nothing but a thorn in her side.
Luke and Tess have chemistry, they were definitely meant to be together but had a lot to work through before they got to that point, they had a lot of misconceptions about each other.
"When I kissed her once more, I felt her give herself over completely, felt her yield, felt the fight in her heart abandon her. And I took the chance to fill that space in her with me. I'd convince her I could be what she wanted, what she didn't think I was. I could be that man. I would be that man"
I liked Tess she is a fiery character, definitely likeable. Luke however, well, I had my reservations about him, especially following some of his actions with his ex but he did make me swoon, he was 50/50 so not a bbf for me.
In summary; Coming Up Roses is an enjoyable read, I loved how the Bennet family all came together to save the business, there was a bit of drama and angst but Tess and Luke's story does finally lead to a heartwarming ending. Told in first person dual pov.
This is the first book in a new series.
