New Release and Book Review – Colette (Kingsbrier Quintuplets #5) by Jody Kaye @JodyKaye

Publication Date: February 14, 2019
Coming-of-Age / Family Saga
Standalone in the Kingsbrier Quintuplets series
Series number: 5

Description:
I know how to make a man want. I do it so well that it gained me a stalker. I’m not afraid of him,
but of men like him. So living an orderly and private life keeps my anxiety at bay and my family
out of the tabloids.
Devon shows me how freeing chaos can be. He refuses to accept the face I show the world. But
Devon also holds me at arms length… And when he reveals the darkest places inside of him, I
can’t help wondering if he wants me at all.
(This book is a stand alone romance in The Kingsbrier Quintuplets Series.)

Excerpt:
“You’ve got questions for me,” he says.
“Oh so many.”
Devon leads with his heart. I’m not sure why I trust him, but I do. Perhaps it’s that the
Cavanaughs think highly of him. Our interactions at times are so effortless that it seems like I
know everything about this man. I’d say he’s an open book, but for as much as we talk, it’s me
who continues to open up. In comparison, to what I’ve told him about me, I know nothing at all
about Devon and I want to change that.
“What’s the first one?”
“Why is it so easy to talk to you?”
“I understand something inside of you,” he says matter of fact.
I’m not arguing that. There’s no point. We have a connection and I want to see where it’s
leading us.
I turn and start walking backward underneath the weeping limbs of an immense willow. The
drapes hide me and Devon brushes the heavy curtains back.
“Now, what’s the real first one?” Devon knows I’m holding my cards close. Testing if his honesty
holds out.
“Why haven’t you kissed me yet?” My heel hits the first exposed root. The base of the tree is a
few feet away.
“I didn’t think you wanted me to.” He stalks forward at a leisurely pace, but instinct tells me that if
I ran and hid behind the trunk that Devon would give chase. I ran and hid behind the trunk that Devon would give chase.
“Liar.”

As you may know by now, I absolutely love the Kingsbrier Quintuplets series! When I say love, really what I mean is I am obsessed with the series and when Jody says she has a new book coming out, I jump!

This series is everything that is good about the romance genre, and Colette is no exception! Characters that are larger than life, deep emotion, and sizzling chemistry are just a few of the qualities you can expect to find in all of Jody’s books.

I have to say that I really have had the expectation, all throughout the series, that Colette would end up with Colton, so imagine my dismay when it’s not Colton, but Devon, Adam’s friend and sort of boss! That being said, I found myself sucked in by Devon and he won me over – in a big way!

I found it so easy to identify with Colette. Ok, the big differences between us being that she’s rich and a super-model, and I am anything but… HA! However, she is so incredibly real – struggling with severe anxiety, an eating disorder, and PTSD, not to mention growing up as a ward of the state, and finally finding her family in her 20’s. It was time for her to get her happily ever after!

This book, can easily be read as a stand-alone, but really I recommend reading the ENTIRE series… Each book builds on the last, and you really must get to know the whole family!

Jody, you have outdone yourself!! Two amazing books just a few weeks apart – and they just keep getting better and better! Thank you for letting me be a part of your world! ❤️

Book Review – Adam (Kingsbrier Quintuplets # 4 by Jody Kaye @jodykaye

Publication Date: February 5, 2019
Coming-of-Age / Family Saga
Standalone in the Kingsbrier Quintuplets series
Series number: 4

Description:
Since quitting med school, Adam Cavanaugh has lied about everything, and the truth is catching
up with him. He knows it’s time to prove he’s someone his family can be proud of.
Temple has high standards—ones Adam will never reach. But he wants a woman like her in his
life someday and is willing to let Temple teach him how to be a better man. That is, if he can
keep his heart out of the equation.
Who would have guessed that her perfect life was an illusion? Or that she was falling for him
too? And when Adam’s conscience compels him to tell the truth about his past, will his deceit
stop Temple from trusting anyone ever again?

Excerpt:
“No bridesmaid to hook-up with tonight? Let me guess.” Temple lifted a finger. “Daveigh’s
friends are smart enough to not let you anywhere near them?” Temple glanced around the bar
as if she was looking for someone with loose morals whom she could direct his attention to.
“It’s the other way around. I know not to get involved with my sister’s friends.” He leaned in,
mocking her and whispering in her ear over the noise of the crowd. “They’re too good for me.”
Temple’s eyes were wide when he pulled back. Then she shrugged it off, placing her elbow on
the bar and propping her knuckles up under her chin. “Glad you know your place.”
She really didn’t like him and Adam was torn between being a nice guy and a full-on douche.
“You might want to watch out for the glass,” he reminded before inquiring, “Why are you here
anyhow?”
“I needed dinner and was out of wine.” The drink seemed like the most important part so he
asked her how many glasses she’d consumed. There wasn’t a plate on the bar and, luckily, the
guy on the opposite side was with a date. However, his training made him keenly aware that
Temple attracted attention from other dark corners. “Two, no three. I ordered a third when I
finished eating.”
“Where’s your husband?”
“Out of town.”
“How are you getting home?”
“I have a car…Wait!” She smacked her forehead. “Are you propositioning me? For some
reason, I figured you’d be smoother than that. Kingsbrier, you have a reputation to uphold. I’m,”
she was pensive for a second, rubbing where she’d hit, “disappointed.”
Disappointed, he mouthed. Considering who was saying it and that the comment was about
him, it made perfect sense.
“I’m going to drive you home. That’s all.”. She frowned. “I need my car.”
“Not tonight you don’t.” They’d figure a way to get her back here to pick it up once she was
sober.
Temple looked away. She placed a finger on the smooth part of the broken base, sliding it
toward her. “If I’d cut myself would you’f sewn it up?” She slurred and he was glad he offered.
“Yeah.” He snagged her purse off of the chair back and placed it on her shoulder so Temple
didn’t absently forget it. As they stood she lost her balance, catching herself with a palm to his
chest and patting him there distastefully.
“Gotta love the Hippocratic Oath. I’d save you too, Kingsbrier. Even if I hate you.”

I am a HUGE fan of Jody Kaye! I was hooked the instant I started reading Cavanaugh, the precursor story to the Kingsbrier Quints series, and nothing I have read since has disappointed me!
Adam, book 4 in the series, is Adam’s story. The oldest of the Quints, by only minutes, and heir to the Kingsbrier fortune, Adam has been running from his family, his legacy, and the expectations that come with being the eldest and heir. Expected to take over the family business, Adam chooses instead to go to medical school and become a doctor; however, that didn’t happen. He left med school for the military, and never clued anyone in. Now, Adam has been discharged and his family is still none the wiser. Adam keeps up the facade, while working for a security firm far, far from home.
Unsettled, and unsatisfied with the man he has become, he knows he needs to come clean with his loved ones, but he wants to be able to show them proof that he is becoming a man that they can be proud of before doing so. Of course, that never works, as lie piles upon lie, and just digs Adam further into the hole.
I really loved Adam’s story. I laughed and I ugly cried. Jody has that effect on me. Her story-lines are engaging from the start, full of emotion, and you never know what is coming next.
The characters are so well developed that I feel as if I know them. It is fun coming back to this series and the characters that I love so much – in fact, I am going back through and reading them again.
I believe that while Adam is book 4 in the series, it could be read as a stand-alone. There is a backstory that would be missing; however, Jody does an outstanding job of weaving the stories together, and allowing you to understand the intricacies and dynamics of the relationships without having to go back to the start. I highly recommend reading the entire series, though, as I know you will love the family as much as I do! ❤️❤️

Book Review and Blog Tour – Shamrock (Linear Tactical Series) by Janie Crouch

Title: Shamrock
A Linear Tactical Standalone
Author: Janie Crouch
Genre: Romantic Suspense
Release Date: December 4, 2018
Blurb
Every mission
has a price.

He never meant for her to pay it.

Aiden has never left anyone behind. Not a comrade and certainly not an
innocent. But when an undercover mission goes wrong, he’s forced to abandon a
woman trapped in a human trafficking ring.

Violet learned brutally that no one is promised a happy ending. She knows Aiden
blames himself for his part, but she refuses to let her abduction define the
rest of her life.

She won’t be a victim again. And she’s going after what she wants: Aiden.

Watching Violet transform herself into a fierce warrior is the sexiest thing
Aiden has ever seen. The honorable plan would be to stay away from her–let her
heal and grow without the shadow of his mistakes clouding her progress–even
though every instinct tells him to claim her for his own.

But when they discover the danger they thought they’d left behind is closer
than ever, they’ll have to face their deepest fears and fight
side-by-side in order to survive.

I’m not gonna lie! I am head over heels in love with this series! Janie Crouch has done an outstanding job of creating a world full of relatable characters, and the perfect mix of action/suspense and romance!
I was so excited to read Aiden’s story, and I was not disappointed. I was waiting for the series to lose it’s sparkle, but it just hasn’t happened! Thank goodness! Aiden – code name Shamrock – is undercover trying to bring down Spellman’s crime syndicate, as we know from previous books. While working one night, he finds Spellman’s men have a woman working for them who appears to be there under duress. Aiden knows he needs to get her out, but can’t without blowing his cover.
Violet, kidnapped by Spellman’s men and subjected to degradation of the worst kind, recognizes that Aiden is different from the other men, and he gives her that little bit of hope needed to survive the torture and humiliation.
I would truly be hard pressed to choose a favorite book in this series, but Shamrock is definitely a contender for the #1 spot. These books are so well written, the storyline never seems to flatline, the men are swoon worthy, and the women are seriously kick-ass, all in their own ways.
These books could be read as stand-alones; however, the stories are so closely intertwined, I don’t recommend it, as they build on each other and you would be missing a lot of back story.
All I can say is this is an absolute must-read!

Excerpt
Violet knew
what she wanted.

No more
being passive. No more agreeing to what might in fact be good for her but
wasn’t what she really wanted.

“You
respect me,” she said gently.

The relief
flashed and Aiden’s hazel eyes. “Yes. I have nothing but respect for
you.”

“Thank
you,” she whispered, trailing her fingers through his thick hair. “And thank
you for getting me home safely last night. And like I said before, thank you
for getting me out of that hellhole a month ago, for figuring out that I was in
trouble when to anyone else it just looked like a normal part of that
situation.”

His brows
furrowed. “You’re welcome for all those things. But there’s no need—”

She put her
finger up to his lips. “I just wanted to say it one more time to make sure I’d
been clear. Because now I’m done saying thank you. And I think you better take
me inside. Otherwise, Mrs. Mazille and her neighborhood watch might get quite
an eyeful with what I’m planning to do to you.”

There was
only so much a man could take. A line where he snapped. A great deal of his
Special Forces training had been spent learning how to push that line as far
back as possible.

But when
Violet’s fingers reached for the hem of the T-shirt covering her body and began
pulling it off, Aiden found his line very clearly.

Book Review and New Release – Who We Might’ve Been (Billie Dixon #3) by D. L. Pitchford

Synopsis

How many second chances does one person deserve?

After an eye-opening summer abroad, Billie Dixon’s world has fallen apart. Her childhood best friend has replaced her. Her boss at the gallery doesn’t think she’s paid enough dues to be a “real artist.” And Xander ignores her, even though they’re roommates. But she’s made her peace with that.

When her photography professor partners her with Dahlia Finnick, it’s only a matter of time before she intrudes on Billie’s life. And this time, Dahlia pursues what she’s always wanted—Billie—and she doesn’t care who she hurts in the process. Even if that person is the object of her affections.

Can Billie look past Dahlia’s faults and give her a second chance? Can she give one to herself?

Now, Billie has to choose between the acceptance she craves and the love she lost. But to mend her broken relationships, she must take her first leap of faith.

So by now, you all must know I am a huge D.L. Pitchford fan! I FLOVE this series and am obsessed with Xander! Of course, I love all the other characters too… even the ones I have a love-hate relationship with (Dahlia)!

Who We Might’ve Been checked all of the boxes for me! I have to admit that I have binge-read it not once, but TWICE and the second time it was even better! It met every expectation I had after reading books one and two.

The storyline moves quickly and it was such an easy read! The dialogue between characters is natural and I had a ton of laugh out loud moments.

This is a must read for all YA fans!

Welcome to the famed resort, The Hathaway at Dragonfly Beach, where newlyweds come to honeymoon, where anniversary couples celebrate milestones, and where broken hearts find a place to heal.

Jilted bride Audra Montgomery wants to reset her life at the famed resort, The Hathaway at Dragonfly Beach. A good girl for far too long, Audra has penned a list of must-do experiences she’s sure will change her. When the hotel’s maintenance guy, a “Mr. Jones,” knocks on her door, she wonders if the sexy handyman might just come in handy when enacting some of the spicier items on her agenda.

Kane Hathaway, general manager of the resort, didn’t set out to deceive his guest when he performed a minor repair. But it’s freeing to imagine life without the responsibilities of the family business. Then there’s the whole “Heartbreak Hotel” designation—cynical Kane doesn’t believe for a minute that a stay on site can heal the wounds left by bad romance. But every moment in Audra’s company sparkles with magic—can this be love?

Me and Mr. Jones is book two in the Heartbreak Hotel series and is a STANDALONE.

I was ridiculously excited to read book two in the Heartbreak Hotel seres after reading book one and I can say that I was not disappointed in the least with Me and Mr. Jones! It was every bit as enchanting as Our Last First Kiss.

I love Christie Ridgeway’s writing style. It is sunny, bright and like a breath of fresh air. Her characters are believable and engaging, the dialogue is natural and flows well, and her stories are simply beautiful!

The Hathaway, otherwise known as Heartbreak Hotel, is set in Santa Barbara and it is rumored that guests with broken hearts heal there and may find love again. Audra and her BFF, Lilly, who we met in the first book, retreat to Dragonfly Beach to recover after Audra was jilted at the author via text message by her no-good fiancé, Jacob.

Broken-hearted, Audra never leaves her room, in fact, doesn’t open the drapes or even take her wedding dress off until the day she meets Mr. Jones, the maintenance man. What she doesn’t know is that it’s a case of mistaken identity. Mr. Jones is none other than the General Manager of the resort, Kane Hathaway, confirmed bachelor who has convinced himself and most of the world that he is not cut out for long-term and is destined to be alone. Mr. Jones convinces Audra to venture back into the land of the living, rather than remain a Zombie Bride.

The chemistry between Audra and Kane is sizzling. I found myself fanning my cheeks throughout the book. I had several laugh out loud moments at the banter between them.

I thoroughly enjoyed being re-introduced to the characters from book one, and even though they took a sideline, they were every bit as lively as I remembered.

This is an absolute must-read for those of you who enjoy a good HEA!

Book Review and New Release – City Of Kings by Bree M. Lewandowski

Synopsis

Lovers once. Enemies now.

How hot does hurt and hatred burn before the flames consume everything?

She was the ruin of his heart, the reason he swore he’d never come back to Illinois. Yet when a commanding officer sends Judah Grane on obligatory guard-detail to Chicago for the Quarterly Council of Kings, nightmares from that past come back to haunt him.

And God has a funny sense of humor…

Maive Greene has worked hard for the life she has. There’s been no one along the way to help. Now, engaged to Chicago’s City King, she can finally see her future and everything she hopes to accomplish.

Until the man she once loved appears.

Betrayed by each other years ago, yet suddenly thrown together in a strange twist of fate, neither can see how this will end…

Scandal threatens and hearts never healed might break anew! Get lost in this wildfire dystopian second chances romance!

Wow! Bree’s imagination and ability to tell a story and build her worlds absolutely blows my mind! I have not read anything of Bree’s that I have not been completely fascinated with. City of Kings was no different.

I loved Judah and Maive’s story. I always love a strong female lead character, and Maive is just that – Courageous, strong, and dedicated to making something of herself. Judah is the perfect alpha-male – strong, brooding, dedicated and loyal. Their chemistry is sizzling!

When I started reading, I wasn’t sure where it was going… if I was reading fantasy, post-apocalyptic, or what… but as I said Bree is a masterful world-builder and she pulled it all together and created the perfect romance, full of tension and conflict.

This is a MUST read!

Book Review and New Release – The Bombshell Effect by Karla Sorensen

Title: The Bombshell Effect
Author: Karla Sorensen
Genre: Sports Romantic Comedy
Release Date: June 14, 2018
Cover Designer: Najla Qamber

Allie Sutton just got a new job. 

Not one she wants, and definitely not one she’s prepared for. She hadn’t seen her dad in years, so the last thing she expects upon his sudden death is to inherit the thing he loved more than anything (or anyone) … the professional football team he owned for the last twenty years. 

Luke Pierson does not want a new boss. 

What he wants is to be a good father to his daughter, the best quarterback possible for his teammates. What he doesn’t need is a blonde bombshell ruining the team’s chances at another championship. Especially when that bombshell turns out to be his new neighbor. The neighbor he was a complete jerk to the first time they met. 

For the sake of the team, they treat each other like complete professionals. In public, at least. Behind closed doors, it’s a different story. And the fallout of giving in to that heat is something neither one of them can see coming.

Well, this is the second book I have read by Karla Sorensen, and it completely lived up to my expectations! She has such an engaging writing style that you can’t help but be sucked in from the first page. OK, so little disclaimer, as I may be a bit biased on this book – it takes place in Seattle, my stomping grounds and I ALWAYS love reading stories that take place here!

Luke, a pro-football player for the Washington Wolves, and single Dad, does everything he can to keep his personal life out of the media… he has been burned before.

Allie, daughter to the former owner of the Wolves, has just found out that she inherited the team. She knows NOTHING about football and has no idea what to do with a team, but that won’t stop her from trying.

The characters are beautifully developed, the chemistry between Luke and Allie is sizzling hot, and oh, I just can’t say enough good things!

The storyline is riveting. I did not want to put this book down for one second! I highly recommend this to anyone who is a fan of sports romances, and just romance in general!

Well, let’s see … I’m a wife and a mother. If the things that I write bring a smile to someone’s face, then I’ve done my job. I am obsessed with Outlander (both the books and the show). I’m almost exclusively a romance reader, which means some people will never consider me a literary snob. If I could meet one historical figure, it would be Jane Austen. I received my Bachelors in Public Relations and worked in health care marketing before I had my babies. I hate Twitter. I do it, but I hate it. Also, if you want to get on my good side, bring me wine and I’ll love you forever.

A story about first love, lost love and new love.

When his high school sweetheart dies before they can truly enjoy being married, Brandon isn’t sure he wants to let anyone that close again. He’s sure her memory, and their child, is all he’ll want or need. So when he starts feeling sparks of attraction for his daughter’s godmother, he isn’t sure how to react. Stung once by life’s fickle whims, he doesn’t want to risk his heart again – especially when he has an innocent child to consider, too. But fate – and a hard headed little girl – have other plans…and they think Brittney and Brandon are a perfect fit.

Can Brandon find room in his wounded heart for Brittney?

Can he be persuaded to take another chance on love?

“Unbelievably heart-wrenching, laugh out loud chuckles, intense and gripping nail-biting on the edge of your seat impossible to put down perfection at its finest!” ~ Goodreads Review (Treasa)

“… a story with heart, passion and chemistry.” ~ Goodreads Review (Laila V.)


I am a southern girl, born and raised in crawfish country. I love to write romance – and read science fiction and fantasy, horror, romance and erotic romance. I’m a bit of a poet, but mostly when I’m feeling emotional. My friends tend to come to me when they need poems. I’ve been all over the continental US. My fave state? Oregon, because it has it all – beaches, ocean, mountains, caves, valleys, desert. I’ve been to Canada. I’ve driven an 18 wheeler…I’m 5’1″, lol. I wanted to be a race car driver, but my first love is reading/telling stories. Why? Because between the covers of a book, you can go anywhere, be anything, and do whatever you like…all in the span of a few hours.
