A new angsty college mafia romance from bestselling author of the Rixon Raiders series.
Arianne Capizola is her father’s daughter.
Humble. Hardworking. Honest.
She’d rather spend her days helping at the local shelter than brushing shoulders with her vain and entitled classmates.
Niccolò Marchetti is his father’s son.
Dark. Dangerous. Deceitful.
He’d rather spend his days getting bloody in the ring than attending class and keeping up pretences.
When their paths cross at Montague University neither of them are willing to drop the walls they’ve spent so long building. But he can’t resist the girl with stars in her eyes, and she can’t forget the guy who saved her that night.
There’s only one catch.
Nicco isn’t Arianne’s knight-in-shining-armor, he’s the son of her father’s greatest enemy.
He is the enemy.
And their families are at war.
*Prince of Hearts in the first book in Nicco and Ari’s duet. Due to mature content that some readers may find distressing, this book is recommended for readers 18+

“For never was a story of more woe than this of Juliet and her Romeo.” ― William Shakespeare
I loved it!! A brilliant Romeo and Juliette adaptation within the Mafia world.
I was gripped from start to finish and that cliffhanger had be face palming, I want the conclusion now.. dam it!!
Prince of Hearts is Arriane and Nicco's story, how they met at the same school, how they fell in love and how they discovered their families were in a generation war. So much angst and drama, I loved it.
Written flawlessly. I was addicted, I could not get enough of this story and the direction it was going. Will Nicco and Arianne find a way to be together without being in danger, will their be more blood spilled.... OMG, I cannot wait to find out.
What a brilliant start to a new series, I already have my eye on other characters were I want to know about them and hope they get their own story.
Three-time world champion bull rider Rhett Allen has never been afraid to get his hands dirty. Hard work, sweat, and determination have gotten him where he is today—and that’s holed up in a hospital room, wondering how he let that damn bull buck him off. He’s also wondering why he thought it was a good idea to let his twin brother talk him into returning home to heal.
Rhett has a million reasons to come home to Heaven, Texas, and only one reason to stay away. That reason comes in the form of a sweet and feisty girl who stole his heart long before he ever thought to give it away. The only problem…that girl has turned into a stunning woman.
Monroe Gallagher is downright sexy with more curves than County Line Road. It’s been six years since he’s seen her, six years since he’s felt any form of peace, and six years since she gripped his heart in her delicate little hands and squeezed the life out of it.
The longer he’s in Heaven, the more he starts to realize that the heart she took from him—the one she crushed into a million pieces—she also never gave back.

A hot second chance romance with s sexy bull rider.
I liked it. I listened to this book in audio and it was well narrated in dual pov.
Rhett left 6 years ago to be a bull rider, Monroe let him go and broke his heart. It broke both their hearts when Monroe lied to make Rhett leave, so he could concentrate on his career.
Childhood sweethearts who could never settle with anyone else even apart.
Rhett's back following an injury and when he see's Monroe he wants answers.
Crazy Sexy Love is swoon worthy, hot, had drama, angst and a hea, it had everything I love in my romance reads.
The woman he loved died.
And I’m what’s left standing.
I didn’t know I would fall for him. He is, after all, my enemy.
I set out to break his heart. And that’s what I plan to do. Splatter it into a million pieces.
He’s an asshole, you see.
He runs this town. And he thinks he can run me too.
Well, he can’t.
And he can think again.
Most women don’t fall at the feet of a man like him. No, they grovel.
Except, I can’t. Because I hate him.
Even with his rugged good looks and a demanding presence, he can’t win me.
Because I’ve played this game well.
And I will win
"But how can you tell a temptress no, when she looks like a goddess"
Kat is badass, I love a strong heroine and this single mum is definitely all that and really knows how to put this MC President in his place with no effort.
Another brilliant read from TL Smith.
Blaze is the brother of Marcus and Kat is the sister Rochelle from the previous book but it can be read as a standalone.
A page turner, I loved it, Kisses and Warfare has a perfect balance of what's going on in Blaze and Kat' s life with their enemies to lovers romance and just a bit of club life and their chemistry is hot *fans self
I love it when T.L. Smiths writes hot sassy heroines with backbone.
Great addition to the series and I'm hoping for more.

The epic finale of When Rivals Play. A coming-of-age tale of loss, love, and redemption.
They were wrong for each other from the start.
The jock and the nerd, what a cliché they made.
He was the town prince, and she was a nobody.
Tyra Bradley was invisible.
That is until she told him he needed some manners, and so began their game of cat and mouse.
She ran, he chased.
It was perfect.
Except Vaughn Rees has a deep, dark secret. Promised to the NFL, but fated for something sinister, Vaughn knows she’s forbidden fruit. To want more is to tempt death. He’s already in too deep.
When a betrayal unravels their fragile ties, the good girl runs as fast as she can. What Tyra doesn’t know? They’re a siren’s song. She can run, but they’ll always be bound.
They’re two souls torn apart and mended by fate. And now…Vaughn isn’t the only one with a secret.
* * *
Each novel depicts a unique romance; however, the plots connect. It's recommended that you read them in order for the best experience
A story of unrequited love filled with twists and turns only B.B Reid can deliver.
THE PRINCE AND THE PAWN is an epic ending to a captivating and addictive series.
Each book is inter-connected and shows how each person in this close group of friends finds love and not one of them are in the conventional way which is what I love about B.B Reid's books.
Unpredictable, exciting Vaughn and Tyra's story was just as edgy as the others and you just didn't know what to expect.
Yo are given more insight on Vaughn's father and the control he has over his lie and how he expects Vaughn to follow in his footsteps and not his career in football. Tyra is the girl he falls for but isn't allowed to have.
There are many twists and turns along with suspense within the plot and it was a good story that will have you eagerly turning the pages.
I'm not sure if this can be read as a standalone. I read it after a long gap after the other book and didn't feel like I need to know much about the others to understand Vaughn and Tyra's story so I would say it could be however to get an overall feel for the journey and where it takes you I would suggest reading from the beginning which is THE PEER AND THE PUPPET which is Four's story yes that's her name Four which still confuses me her name being a number who is Tyra's best friend.

A heart warming insta-love kind of romance.
I had this Author recommended to me when I was looking for something with humour. I obviously picked the wrong book but I still enjoyed it.
Quinn isn't your typical man-whore, hot football star normally portrayed.
Quinn first meets Cat where she is a flight attendant. When the flight has to land due to weather and they land in an unscheduled destination, Cat and Quinn share a long train journey together.
Quinn is instantly armoured with Cat while Cat is equally attracted to Quinn and doesn't know he is one of the nation's best Quarter backs.
They exchange numbers but when Cat finds out who Quinn is she doesn't hold her breath for him to contact her..
Quinn does contact Cat and is determined to make her his.
Media attention and comments about her skin colour nearly have Cat running.
Wildcat is a heart warming read that I listened to in audio and was well narrated.
I enjoyed it and although it lacked excitement and drama it was a good story that had you routing for the characters and it had hotness in all the right places.
She belongs to my brother…
I’ve stood back for years watching Dax repeatedly screw things up with Kennedy, as if he doesn’t think anyone could ever swoop in and steal her away.
Breakup after breakup, they always end up back together, even though I’ve always had a thing for her. I’m tired of waiting. He had his chance.
I want mine.
When Dixie’s Alibi — her Grandmother’s bar — needs a new cook for the food truck, I jump at the opportunity, despite the fact that Kennedy Ward hates me. At least, she pretends she does. We both know she secretly wants me and always has.
One way or another, I will get her to finally admit it, even if it involves losing my brother. I plan to play dirty — real dirty — just like he did.
This time I’m going to beat him at his own game. I wanted her first, and he knew that, but our age kept us apart. Not anymore.
Now, I’m grown and ready to take what should’ve been mine to begin with.
Tension, hotness. A cocky Alpha. Steal You Away has it all.
Now, I was a little put off by Colson's forwardness at the beginning, how he would pursue Kennedy relentlessly even though she was his brothers girlfriend. As the story unfolds though and you begin to understand the history and the reasons for Colson only just making his move it all comes to light.
Steal You away was a good story with characters that definitely deserved to be with each other. I haven't read a love triangle in a long time and I found the suspense had me turning the pages eagerly to see how it would all unfold.
Told in first person dual pov and leads to HEA.
AVAILABLE IN KU
“You should be thanking me,” he breathes. “I have many ways you can do that. But it’s best to wait until we’re alone before I name them.”
“Fuck off, Colson.” I place my hand on his firm chest to put some space between us. His closeness has my entire body igniting into flames. “I won’t be thanking you for anything. No one asked for your help. I know I certainly didn’t. In fact, I had no idea you were even back in town. Your sister failed to mention that little disappointing tidbit to me.”
“I doubt it’s that much of a disappointment. From what I remember, babe, I left you with a little something to remember me by and we both know you enjoyed it. Let’s not pretend.” His eyes lower to the natural bulge in his jeans, and following his trap, mine do as well. “I bet you still fantasize about my taste, don’t you? Does my brother know?”
“You’re disgusting.” I say, my pulse racing with need. “If you must know, I haven’t thought about you in months. In fact, I almost forgot you existed until you showed up here.”
“We both know that’s a lie…”
Buried secrets never stay hidden in the South.
When you find out that your fiancé is arrested for swindling over ten million dollars from his clients, you do what any sane woman would do. You escape reality and go undercover, trading in your city-girl Louboutins for country-pumpkin cowboy boots.
It wasn’t a forever change—it was temporary. I only had to stay here until things back home got straightened out, or so I thought.
I was riding horses before I was walking, or at least that was what they told me. I always knew I would take over the family farm. It’s in my blood.
Country boy at heart, the minute I saw her dragging her luggage up the gravel driveway I knew she was out of my league.
I shouldn’t have started anything with her, because I knew she was just passing through.
I couldn’t stop it, I fell in love with her. Even though I knew, in the end, she would leave me
Hot swoon-worthy Alpha cowboy alert and millionaire to boot, hot damn!.
Southern Comfort is the second book in this series and a perfect weekend read or the kind of book you pick up when you have time to just get lost in the story.
Olivia is a city girl, once a model now designer but after finding her boyfriend in a compromising position with women and drugs on a surprise visit she kicks his ass to the curb to then find out not only was he not the man she thought he was but her life is now in danger due to illegal dealings her ex was involved in.
Olivia needs a safe place to stay, out of the city and is offered just the place by her best friend Kallie which is on her brother Casey's ranch.
Enters smooth talking cowboy Casey who calls Olivia Darlin * fans self
Casey is an ex rodeo star and ranch owner and as things begin to happen to alert Casey and the family that Olivia has been found and is still in danger you discover there's a lot more to Casey than just a cowboy, with his access to security devices and how he calls in orders and favours to keep Olivia safe, he's a man of mystery until all is revealed.
With Olivia staying under Casey's roof it was inevitable these two would get together, Casey is all alpha, he becomes her protector and eventually more and I thought they were a perfectly matched couple.
Another enjoyable read, a touch on the slow-burn side in the hotness and relationship part of the story but still a page turner of a book by Natasha Madison and I am definitely looking forward to Beau and Savannah's story that you get a little cliffhanger taste of.
Each book can be read as a standalone but the characters and plot lines do flow into one another so to get an overall feel and history to the story I would suggest reading from the beginning. I haven't read the previous book and felt there was some things missing or somethings I needed to know which would have been in the previous book, Kallie and Olivias relationship for example the back stories that sort of thing for an overall feel and picture to the whole story.
Told in first person dual pov and leads to a hea.
Looking forward to the next book

IT WAS TEMPORARY, OR AT LEAST THAT IS WHAT HE THOUGHT!
ADD THE SOUTHERN SERIES TO YOUR GOODREADS
START AT THE BEGINNING!
From NYT & USA Today Bestselling Author A.L. Jackson comes the next sexy, gripping Bleeding Stars Stand-Alone Novel…
I’m Ash Evans.
The life of the party.
Hot. Rich. Charismatic.
A tattooed rock star with the world at my feet.
I burn through women faster than the strike of a match.
I’ve embraced my lifestyle and live it to the fullest.
Until the day my lifestyle caught up to me.
Willow Langston found me at my lowest.
Facedown in a puddle of my own blood.
I owe her my life and I have three months to repay that debt.
What I never should have done was touch her. Kiss her. Take her to my bed.
Love wasn’t supposed to be a part of the equation.
I gave up that nasty complication a long damned time ago.
Now I want her more than my next breath.
But she doesn’t know what I know.
Do I leave to protect her? Or can I face my demons and ask her to Stay?
A heartwarming journey with twists and turns.
This is the first book in the series for me and although I haven't read previous books I came across no spoilers, so this can be read as a complete standalone.
Willow and Ash's story is one of fate, heartwarming, cruel and beautiful all at the same time.
Ash is the front-man of a famous band, he's a man-whore, a player, he is a girls dream one night stand, until he gets beaten up, left for dead by a group of men and the boyfriend of a woman who didn't say she she had a boyfriend when she slept with Ash.
Lying semi conscious, willow finds him outside her shop and calls for help.
Willow and Ash have an instant connection.
Willow is meek, caring, gentle, a complete opposite to what Ash would normally be attracted to, she's the kind of woman Ash normally avoids.
Although this is a rock-star story the plot is solely focused on the characters rather than Ash's career and what he does and there is very little regarding other members of the band.
Ash and Willows journey is heartwarming, I always enjoy a story where the man-whore changes his ways for the right girl, I enjoyed it, the twist was a little hard to swallow but I swooned at Ash's change of heart and loved the hea.
I listened to this book as part of a box set Heart Break. 3 books for one price, Stay is the first book, Jessica Hawkins and Corrine Michaels to follow, loving it.
A perfect weekend read.
That awkward moment when an ER doctor has to inform you that you’re pregnant…with his baby.
Three things Lynsey Jones knows about the hot doctor: he’s grouchy, an arrogant jerk, and strangely obsessed with pie.
Three things Dr. Dick knows: he doesn’t talk about his past, he doesn’t do relationships, and the crazy girl in the hospital cafeteria who ate a fistful of French silk pie…is annoyingly irresistible.
After a chance meetup at a bar and a heated cab ride together, things come to a head and now instead of hating each other, they’re horizontal in a bed.
Three months later, the weird cafeteria stalker who crept out of Dr. Dick’s house like a thief in the night, winds up as his patient in the ER after her Tinder date from hell.
Dr. Dick is prepared to keep it cool and professional. That is until her bloodwork reveals that she’s pregnant.
What really throws him for a loop…is that the surprise baby…is his.

Another book by this author that has a perfect combination of humour, hotness and Romance.
Frustrating characters, a page Turner of a story and sprinkled with heartwarming moments, I finished ONE MOMENT PLEASE with a happy sigh.
Dr Dick, aka Josh is one frustrating Doctor who following a one night stand with Lynsey ends up being a baby daddy.
A surprise pregnancy that both are ready to embrace and while Lynsey, Kate's friend from the previous book WAIT WITH ME, is a hearts and flowers kind of girl and wants her relationship to develop into more with Josh, Dr Dick, just wants to do the right thing without letting himself get attached emotionally, been there done that suffered heartbreak and it ruined him.
What starts of as a one night stand moves to friends with benefits and then to Lynsey moving in with Josh which begins to develop into more for Lynsey as they try to make it work for the baby coming but Josh still holds back and is afraid to open up, let anyone in due to a past experience that broke him.
Its a make or break, a will it, won't it work kind of scenario until something or someone's has to give.
Another enjoyable Rom-Com from Amy Daws.
Leads to hea and told in first person dual pov. Characters from previous books are also present in Josh and Lynsey's story.

Bossy Brothers: Alonzo is an enemies-to-lovers trope that can be read as book five or as a standalone story.
Tara Tanner and I are not a couple.
We don’t do real life. We don’t do real numbers. We don’t do real names.
We do phone sex, and text sex, and email sex.
Everything about our ‘relationship’ is a lie.
You call it catfishing, I call it being careful. And I do not feel bad about it. Because my life is an ocean of secrets that could all wash ashore if I’m not careful.
Alonzo Dumas is the King of Catfishermen.
Oh, yes. I know who he really is.
But he has no idea who I am.
I feed on secrets. They’re my lifeblood. He has no idea that I’ve been stringing him along, casting him a line of lies like bait, and now I’ve got him on my hook.
Watch out, Alonzo Dumas. Because I’m about to reel you in.

Catfished, online lovers, fate?
This was an odd one and a story I couldn't connect with or the characters, it was hot but the plot wasn't grabbing me all that much until near the end.
The characters meet online, developing a relationship for two years, they face time, have sex chat but have never met and neither are who they say they are until they realise they are more connected than they thought because they never talk about their real lives.
It was different, hot in the right places and I'm not sure honestly if I liked it or not.
It's one you will have to judge for yourself. I haven't read previous books in this series but found myself more interested in the other characters so I would definitely have a go at reading the other books in this series.
Leads to hea and can be read as a standalone.
Presley Marks has just become a cliché: the jilted bride. Wearing a white dress, standing in front of her friends and family, she announces that her fiancé—according to his text—has forgotten about the wedding.
Humiliated and angry, she hides from the world in the mundane routine of her life. Working at the Clifton Forge Garage isn’t glamorous, but it’s safe from the spotlight.
At least it was, until Shaw Valance comes to town.
The notorious Hollywood actor is starring in a movie based on the town’s infamous murder. When he’s not on set, Shaw hovers at the garage, watching as they build his custom motorcycle and irritating her with his handsome smile. He was supposed to leave once filming wrapped and go back to his fancy life, not buy the house next door.
But Shaw might regret that purchase once Presley’s ex-fiancé returns, bringing with him a war between old rivals that could burn both their houses down
Stone Princess is another brilliant addition to this addictive series.
I was always intrigued by Presley and her relationship with the biker no-one from the former Tin Gypsies liked, the story begins with Presley being stood up on her wedding day proving to the guys at the Clifton Forge Garage, now her family that he was never any good for her.
I love the other characters and they have always treated Presley like a sister, they are overprotective of her just as Draven had been before his death, Presley is like the sister at the garage who looks after them all.
I would suggest reading this series from the start, you would get more of an insight to the dynamics of all the relationships and how the story has progressed from the beginning following the first book and the murder of Genevieve's mother, the arrest of Draven and the build-up to the movie now being made in their small town.
When a notorious Hollywood actor Shaw Valance comes into town to film his movie based on the town’s infamous murder it opens up wounds that are just beginning to heal for all at the Clifton Forge Garage, formerly the Tin Gypsy's MC.
Stone Princess is a heartwarming romance, Shaw was so swoon worthy and not your typical actor who loved the limelight. When Shaw visits the garage he is instantly attracted to Presley and especially her sass and straight talking which isn't something Shaw is used to, women are normally falling at his feet.
A brilliant addition to the series, a heartwarming story that leads to a hea, very little drama and action until the latter part of the book but addictive all the same, especially if you have followed these characters from the beginning. I am looking forward to more in this series.
A will. The last wishes of a dead man shouldn’t have had the power to change all of our lives.
But a family fortune can test even the bonds of identical twins.
Now there’s him, the perfect bad boy who hates us all.
My sister wants him, but he wants me.
With billions of dollars at stake, no one is going to come out unscathed.
The Spare - Part One
I could not put this book down!
The Spare has blown me away, I was so engrossed in this story, the characters were intriguing and the plot soooo intense.
Tallulah is a ghost, invisible even to her own family until they need her. She's the daughter who doesn't matter, a twin but not in her own right.
Carrigan is the oldest, the first born who will inherit everything if she succeeds with her late Grandfathers will demands, she must remain a socialite keep up the family name she also has to keep her grades up, finish High school with good grades, and to do that Tallulah the sister nobody knows about sometimes has to sit tests in her place Carrigan was definitely not the twin with brains but no-one must know who Tallulah really is and so she pretends to be her sister when necessary.
They both go to the same school filled with rich students, the elite, the well known in society but people only know of one Archibald and that's Carrigan.
The Archibald family are greedy, evil, selfish, they parade their eldest daughter around like a prize possession and even the money she is going to inherit isn't enough, they want more, they want Carrigan to marry into money, they want Carrigan to marry Arlo who is also from a rich family to strengthen the family name.
Arlo Lexington can't be bought or manipulated that easily, he can't even stand the prissy princess Carrigan and eventually he stumbles across the secret the Archibald's have been hiding... Tallulah, who is the complete opposite of her sister.
Oh my god it got so exciting and intense, I seriously cannot see where the plot will go, Gemma nailed this young adult romantic suspense and I cannot wait to see what happens next in part two.
Fans of L.J Shen and L.A Cotton, Tijan, would love this.
Darcy Ryan is a woman on a mission. A mission to take down the corrupt cops who ensured her best friend, Matteo Torres, went to jail for a crime he didn't commit - the murder of his wife, Rebecca. Darcy is willing to do just about anything to prove his innocence, including getting up close and personal with lead detective, Finn Drake. She knows she's playing a dangerous game, but it gets more dangerous than she could have ever imagined when she discovers everything she thought she knew about Rebecca Torres was wrong, and Finn Drake isn't the man she thought he was either. Darcy's life and her best friend's freedom are on the line. With her entire world turned on its head and time running out, she has to decide. Should she take a chance on Drake and go against her gut instincts, or go it alone and pray she can find the killer before he finds her?
A murder mystery. I really enjoyed it and was filled with anticipation as the plot progressed, I wanted to know who had framed Darcy's best friend as much as she did.
Matteo Torres was convicted or murdering his wife, he's innocent but all the evidence is pointed to the scorned husband and his best friend Darcy vows to prove his innocence and in doing so is prepared to put her life on the line by trying to get close to one of the investigators on the case who she thinks is corrupt and had a hand in putting her friend behind bars.
From the moment Darcy sets off on her miss Marple investigation journey, even her relationship with the Detective Finn takes a surprising turn and the hero becomes someone she believed to be the villain but who did it?.
Reasonable doubts is a gripping story full of twists and turns, Its a page turner with an unpredictable plot.
I listened to Reasonable Doubts in audio and I have to say this is the first audio I have listened to where the whole book is narrated by a man. I liked it. The narrator didn't try and make himself sound like a woman with Darcy's pov which can be annoying when a male narrator does that but he softened his tone.
The master of the tease.
The god of rock.
Frontman of the world's most desired band, Youth Gone Wild.
I'm Rhett Ryan, and I get what I want.
Women? They were lining up.
Money? I had enough.
Accolades? My shelves were full
Love? I didn't have time for that.
Not until I had no choice but to pay attention to the last woman I expected to fall for.
My beautiful, sassy publicist, Julia goddamn Speed.
She was a vital part of the band's success, and she was as off-limits as they came. I'd never wanted anything more in my life. But Julia wasn't like the rest, and my advances only pushed her further away. She was the first woman to make me work for it, and Christ, did I suddenly want to work for it!
Even if I knew it would end in disaster.
Even if I knew there would be tears.
I was willing to play dirty to make it happen.
I just had no idea how much I'd change in the process, or how something that had once been my everything would soon become nothing because I'd jumped into the forbidden with her.
Stupid, Reckless Rhett.

Rhett Ryan isn't just another cocky Rock star, well he is, he's a guy who drinks too much, sleeps around and uses drugs, he's living the life of a rock and roll star, it's like he's on a mission to fill a void that he just isn't finding until he's see's what he has truly been missing and it's been right under his nose all along in the form of his publicist Julia Speed.
Three years Julia has been Rhett's publicist she has dug him out of more holes and covered up his mistakes more than all the other band members put together. Julia is bossy, professional and straight talking, I loved her.
But one night, and an unexpected moment of weakness and Julia's hard shell cracks in her resistance to Rhett Ryan, lead singer of Youth Gone Wild.
"I've got you" I breathed down on her "Bet on me, Bet on Rhett"
Moving, captivating, mesmerising, I absolutely loved Rhett and Julia together, how their relationship developed and how this man whore of rock turns into a love sick puppy when his eyes finally open to what has been right before him all these years.
"She was warm to my ice cold life, and I tasted every drop"
Another book By Vicki James I could not put down, I love being taken on a journey and this author always does that and I cannot wait for more, my mind is going wild with the possibilities of what is to come next in this series.
Told In first person pov and leads to hea. Available in KU

A High school Bully Romance
An interesting start to a new series and Erin Trejo sure does nail the punch with the dark and gritty.
I found a particular scene disturbing, I like Bully romance but when the characters, all three brothers tie Whisper up blind fold her and each had a turn at molesting her, I had to take a step back and especially with what I could gather from the story, Whisper had already been a rape victim or the victim of abuse at some point in her life when she was in foster care but following her night with the Alder brothers, she went to school, carried on as normal with the intention on finding out who it was? THAT, was not believable and that, I could not get my head around especially when she ended up being the girlfriend of one of them and best friends with the other brothers as the story progressed, now if they had just scared her, tied her up and not done anything sexual I would have just moved on but it kind of lost me from that point.
With the above being said, it was gritty, edgy had suspense and other parts within the story made it a page turner. I have read a similar book before though. Other characters did interest me so I would be curious to see what the next book in this new series is like.
From New York Times Bestselling author, Kristen Proby, comes the first in an all-new trilogy in her beloved Big Sky Series!
Hannah Malone loves her new town. Despite living in Cunningham Falls for five years, she’s still considered a “move in” by most of the locals, and that doesn’t bother her in the least. She’s the “new girl”, and she hasn’t regretted it for one day. This town is her sanctuary. Her home. The one place she finally fits in and feels safe after a lifetime of being different and running from the memories and a past so far away it can’t haunt her anymore.
As the newly appointed police chief, Brad Hull has the responsibility to keep his citizens safe and to maintain order. His roots in this town are deep—five generations deep, to be exact. Cunningham Falls, Montana is his town, and being a cop and protecting what’s his is his passion. Everything’s running like clockwork until a sassy redheaded doctor moves in and disrupts the order—and Brad’s focus.
She’s not just beautiful, funny, and strong. Hannah’s everything he’s been looking for in a woman. The chemistry is undeniable, and the heat in the bedroom is off the charts. Brad knew the minute he met Hannah that she was the one for him. He’s tenacious in his pursuit of her. But when the past catches up with Hannah, will Brad be able to protect her and their hearts?
I waited for the angst or drama, it never came.
If this was a book I would have lost interest and put it down, however, I listened in audio so I was determined to see where it went which was nowhere basically unless you count the hea.
A small town romance about a police officer and a Doctor falling in love, doing life.
The narration was confusing at times when the male narrator read parts containing a conversation, I couldn't tell which character was which and who said What.
In summary an OK romance but for me it fell flat, I enjoy page Turners, this wasn't one.
BAD IDEA #241: Sending a dirty text to your number neighbor.
In my defense, my friends did it too, and their neighbors took it as the joke it was.
He responded with a dirty text of his own. Next thing I know, I have a standing texting date every night at ten-thirty.
Until I have to miss it because the stray kitten who adopted me one week ago is sick. The only person I know who can help me at this time of night is my British next-door neighbor and local vet, Isaac Cooper.
I’ll keep him overnight, he says. Here’s my number to call me in the morning, he says.
I know that number.
Because I’ve been texting it every night for the last four days...
Drunken number neighbours texting, a cat called Lucifer, an uncontrollable teenage acting Granny and a hot neighbour who's a vet with a duck fear, oh and British,
I should have also said hot British next door neighbour * fans self
"Jesus dirty talk in a British accent was heaven"
Number neighbours was funny, the characters witty and fun and the sexy scenes hot.
I peered down. Awesome. Just awesome. I was wearing lime green, cotton panties with cherry print on them, and I'm pretty sure they had a hole on the ass.
I enjoyed it, an ideal read to lift the mood and infuse some laughter and romance into your day.
As always Emma Harts words were witty, fun and her characters loveable.
Leads to a hea and told in first person dual pov.

From New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Sawyer Bennett comes a new story in her Arizona Vengeance series…
I was living my dream until one phone call changed everything.
As the second line center for the Arizona Vengeance, my mind has been on one thing—helping my team bring home a championship. But that all changed when I found out my dad had cancer and only months to live. In that moment, nothing mattered more than getting home to North Carolina to be by his side. That meant asking for the unthinkable—a trade to the Carolina Cold Fury.
Now I’m home and when I’m not on the ice with my new team, I’m helping care for my dad. And in the midst of my grief, I find comfort from the one person I never expected.
Calliope Ramirez stole my heart at a very young age. The beautiful, smart, headstrong girl next door, she was my first… everything. She has never forgiven me for leaving her, believing that I chose hockey over a future together. What she doesn’t understand is that every decision I made was for her, and I’ve never given up hope that one day we’d be together again.
Watching my dad slip away is a harsh reminder of how short life can be, and having Callie by my side makes me realize I was a damn fool before. That changes starting right now. Calliope Ramirez is mine and I’m not going to waste the second chance that I’ve been given.
**Every 1001 Dark Nights novella is a standalone story. For new readers, it’s an introduction to an author’s world. And for fans, it’s a bonus book in the author’s series. We hope you'll enjoy each one as much as we do.**
RAFE: An Arizona Vengeance Novella

► Kindle: https://amzn.to/32ONFEh
► Print: https://amzn.to/33UHzlC
I really love this hockey series and always look forward to the next one.
RAFE is a short novella approx 14 chapters. I loved Rafe and Calliopes story, although it did take me a bit to get her name right in my head. I would have loved to read a longer version of their story, how they grew up living next door to each other and fell In love as teenagers only to separate when RAFE was drafted to an put of state team but with a good imagination I suppose I will just have to settle for using that instead.
Rafe and Calliopes story is bitter-sweet, they reunite when Rafe switches teams and returns home to be with his dying father. If you have read previous books you will be aware of Rafe's situation as it is mentioned in the previous books.
RAFE is a heartbreaking yet heartwarming story with second chances and hot moments that leads to a swoon-worthy hea. Sawyer Bennett writes brilliantly, always with the right mix of drama, sexiness and story-line, balancing everything perfectly.
Another book in this Arizona Vengeance series by Sawyer Bennett that I couldn't put down. Each book is interlinked due to the focus being on a different hockey player in the team but they can be read as stand-alone's. As always I will be looking forward to the next book.
Arc received for review purposes
No sex outside of the game.
No disclosing the terms of the contract.
Rules were made to be broken, right?
Eight weeks ago I signed a contract. One that seemed like a good idea at the time. A handsome bachelor, luxury accommodations, and a chance to win a prize my family desperately needed. There were some rules though. Lots of them actually. Follow the script, no dating, sex, or disclosing the terms of the deal. After my self-imposed moratorium on men the last year, it wouldn’t be hard to live up to my end of the bargain... so I thought. Until I realized the deal I’d made was with the devil... and I was in love with his dirty-talking brother.
Can be read as a standalone.
Another book by this author that I enjoyed in audio.
Hot, intense, funny, sexy, and as usual Vi Keeland delivered everything I love in a romance.
Main characters: Hot alpha CEO, sexy bachelor, Cooper Montgomery and the sweet and sassy normal girl next door kind of woman Kate Monroe.
What an awkward situation when Cooper falls for one of his brothers casts on a reality dating show that he himself is funding and he then has to watch the woman he has fallen for dating another guy. Yep, awkward, uncomfortable, it was all kinds of a mess and yet with all the power Cooper has he was powerless over Kate's motives and even when they fell deeper, he still let her carry on.
Kate has her reasons for entering the show, she has a brother who is in a wheelchair and wants to make life better for him so winning has to be her focus even though she's falling for the hot bachelor Cooper Montgomery.
I loved it, the hotness, swoon-worthy moments and the angst in-between.
The audio narrator's were as usual perfectly matched to the characters. I love Vi's audios.
