Synopsis

 

Maria De La Torre is a survivor. Her life has not been paved with streets of gold…but with blood and sacrifice. She may have been there for her soul sister in the Trinity Trilogy but this story is about her life. The life she chooses. The same life someone from her past is trying to take away.

Elijah is the last man in the entire world Maria should be with. He’s a dark, gritty, lawless bounty hunter—the exact opposite of the man she loved and lost, the man who gave up everything for her. Only Elijah is not the type of guy to back down. He’s used to getting what he wants and he’s set his sights on the raven-haired seductress.

Time is not on Maria and Elijah’s side. There’s a new threat to the soul sister, one Maria never thought she’d have to face again. And this time, the stakes are life and death.

Maria quickly learns that the things she wants most in this lifetime may just be the things that have the power to destroy her.

When I met Donovan Kincaid, I knew he was rich. I didn’t know he was filthy. Truth be told, I was only trying to get his best friend to notice me.

I knew poor scholarship girls like me didn’t stand a chance against guys like Weston King and Donovan Kincaid, but I was in love with his world, their world, of parties and sex and power. I knew what I wanted—I knew who I wanted—until one night, their world tried to bite me back and Donovan saved me. He saved me, and then Weston finally noticed me, and I finally learned what it was to be in their world.

Because when dirty, filthy, rich boys play, they play for keeps.

Tracey’s Review

Oh, my holy whoa. Just, O.M.Gasp! I think that my e-reader might still be smoldering after this one. Yes, author Laurelin Paige is back, and she is ON it!

The prequel book in Laurelin’s Dirty Duet series, DIRTY FILTHY RICH BOYS grabbed me from Word One and did not let up. In this book, she’s written a couple of rich privileged college boys, up to all of the things that you might expect. But, wait, there’s more. Because there are secrets here, and I’m betting that they are going to be something else when they come to light in DIRTY FILTHY RICH MEN, the next book up. Can you say ‘cliffhanger’? Oh, I can guarantee that the next book is going to be all kinds of awesome, and I cannot wait to get my hands on it, because I need, yes, need to know what makes Donovan Kincaid and Weston King tick, and just how Sabrina Lind plays into their plans.

Final word? 5 ‘this book is so awesomely hot and addictive!’ stars. Grab this one, guys, and read it now, so that you’re ready when the DIRTY FILTHY RICH MEN hit. You don’t want to miss these books, I guarantee.

Michel’s Review

As little girls we all believed in fairytales. We grew up wanting to be just like the princesses. We wanted to find our own Prince Charming and have the happily ever after. As adult women, we still believe in the fairytales. We may have created our own in our lives but we still enjoy the ones we read in the books. That is why the romance genre dominates the publishing industry.

 

Katy Regnery knows what the readers want. We want the fairytale with a little more of a modern twist and sense of reality. She has taken the beloved fairytales from our childhood and turned them into new fairytales we can relate to as adults.

 

Don’t Speak is loosely based off the beloved fairytale Little Mermaid. Rather than the princess being named Ariel, her name is Laire. Rather than losing her speaking voice, she lost her freedom of making her own choices and voicing her opinions. She still fell in love with the charming Prince Erik but just like the original fairytale, he was out of her reach. They were both from very different worlds and social standings. Ursela was still casting her evil spell to keep these two apart. But like any good fairytale, true love always wins. It may take years and a little help along the way from people like Mrs. Sebastian, but in the end they will find their happily ever after.

 

Like the original story, this one is just as breathtaking. This version gives the Princess something more, a voice through experiences that empower her as a woman and as an individual. She works for her voice by becoming educated and working hard. She becomes emotionally stronger through single motherhood. The prince doesn’t validate her life, he completes the happily ever after she began building on her own.

 

I absolutely loved this book. It was more than a fairytale romance, it was a story about building a life and working for the happily ever after. A story all women can admire and relate to.

 

Katy Regnery has created a true modern day fairytale.

Author Bio

New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Katy Regnery started her writing career by enrolling in a short story class in January 2012. One year later, she signed her first contract and Katy’s first novel was published in September 2013.

Twenty-five books later, Katy claims authorship of the multi-titled, New York Times and USA Today Blueberry Lane Series, which follows the English, Winslow, Rousseau, Story, and Ambler families of Philadelphia; the six-book, bestselling ~a modern fairytale~ series; and several other standalone novels and novellas.

Katy’s first modern fairytale romance, The Vixen and the Vet, was nominated for a RITA® in 2015 and won the 2015 Kindle Book Award for romance. Katy’s boxed set, The English Brothers Boxed Set, Books #1–4, hit the USA Today bestseller list in 2015, and her Christmas story, Marrying Mr. English, appeared on the list a week later. In May 2016, Katy’s Blueberry Lane collection, The Winslow Brothers Boxed Set, Books #1-4, became a New York Times E-book bestseller.

In 2016, Katy signed a print-only agreement with Spencerhill Press. As a result, her Blueberry Lane paperback books will now be distributed to brick and mortar bookstores all over the United States.

Katy lives in the relative wilds of northern Fairfield County, Connecticut, where her writing room looks out at the woods, and her husband, two young children, two dogs, and one Blue Tonkinese kitten create just enough cheerful chaos to remind her that the very best love stories begin at home.

THE HOT ONE - cover

 

A sexy new standalone romance from #1 New York Times Bestselling Author Lauren Blakely…

Ever notice that sometimes a guy will do something really stupid, like let the love of his life slip through his fingers?

Yeah. I’m that guy. But the instant I run into her again I’ve got one goal and one goal only—a second chance. The plan? Go big or go home.

Fine, at first glance, stripping naked at my ex-girlfriend’s place of work might not seem like the brightest way to win her heart again. But trust me on this count—she always liked me best without any clothes on. And sometimes you’ve got to play to your strengths when you’re fighting an uphill battle. As a lawyer, I know how to fight, and I’m prepared to fight hard for her. Because sometimes you need a second chance at first love.

He’s the one who got away . . .

The nerve of Tyler Nichols to reappear like that at my job, showing off his rock-hard body that drove me wild far too many nights. That man with his knowing grin and mischievous eyes is nothing but a cocky jerk to saunter back into my life. Except, what if he’s not . . .? I’ve tried like hell to forget him, but maybe I’m cursed to remember the guy I fell madly in love with eight years ago. Lord knows I’m not over him, so what’s the harm in giving him a week to prove he’s changed in the ways that matter?

After all, how do you resist the hot one . . .?

Tracey’s Review

Look, you’ve got to play to your strengths when you’re negotiating. You need to know what your opponent wants. And sometimes you need to give them what they can’t resist.

When Tyler Nichols ended things with Delaney Stewart all those years ago, well, he could have done it with more compassion, more regard, more finesse. But things ended badly, and now, eight years later, Delaney’s pretty sure that she doesn’t need any Tyler in her life. No matter that they have rapport like gangbusters, that she can’t stop thinking about him, and that he still totally just gets her. Because what Delaney needs from Tyler is more than just good conversation, steamy sexy times, or a great sense of humor. Delaney needs to know that Tyler is really, really sorry for the way that he left things way back when. And when “Bungee Jump Tyler” sets his mind to something, he goes all in, so things are about to get really interesting.

When it comes to me and books, there are certain inarguable truths. One of them is that, if Lauren Blakely wrote it, I’m going to love it. Doesn’t matter the sub-genre, if it’s hers, I’m all in. THE HOT ONE, Lauren’t latest offering in her rom-com series of books, promised to be no different, and it did not disappoint.

Tyler Nichols has been around for a while, making appearances in several of Lauren’s books. I know these things about Tyler: he’s persistent, he’s driven, and he goes full bore to get what he wants. When what he wants is the one that he let slip away, but she’s not biting, Tyler is all ‘game on’ mindset. Delaney, goodness knows, doesn’t stand a chance.

Like all of Lauren’s lady characters, I’ve got mad love for Delaney. She’s living the life she was supposed to live, thanks in no small part to the two men in her life that disappointed her. Much better suited to life as a massage therapist than a shark in a suit, Delaney’s pretty happy with the way things are. But when Tyler reenters her life, Delaney’s in for the pursuit to end all pursuits, so thank goodness she’s got good friends and Nirvana to keep things on an even keel.

I’m going to be honest, there isn’t a book of Lauren’s that isn’t going to do it for me. She’s hit pay dirt once again with THE HOT ONE, because it’s quirky, funny, sexy, and I just couldn’t put it down. No question then, that this is another 5+-star read for me, and that I’d happily recommend it to any fan of a fantastic romantic comedy. And, hey, Lauren, about that new guy at Nichols and Nichols: I’m definitely going to need to see more of Oliver Edgecomb, just saying…

By the way, nice shout-out to Tawna Fenske, L.B. …And, now I want a polydactyl cat… 😉

Hopper

“What’s wrong?” he demanded the second I opened the door.

“Nothing,” I said and motioned for him to come in.

He pulled off his Oakleys and slid one earpiece beneath the neck of his dark-blue T-shirt so they were out of his hands and stepped into the apartment.

His eyes searched out his brother, wanting to be sure all was well.

“He isn’t here,” I said and shut the door.

Lorhaven turned. “Where is he?”

“Meeting,” I replied.

“Why aren’t you there?” He scrutinized.

“Because I didn’t need to be.” I cleared my throat. “And, I, ah, wanted to talk to you. Alone.”

His eyes narrowed suspiciously. “Why?”

Arrow’s big brother was an asshole. It wasn’t anything new to me, and his constant suspicious demeanor didn’t offend me like it used to. I understood his extreme overprotective nature when it came to Arrow (and Joey). I even respected it.

There was a time when I doubted we would ever get along. Hell, sometimes I still doubted it. But ever since the day I raced across the track to pull Arrow out of a multicar pile-up, things were different between me and Lorhaven.

Friendlier.

He welcomed me to the family that day, and since then, he’d backed up his handshake with actions. Arrow and I hung out with him and Joey regularly, something I knew meant a lot to A. To me, too.

Joey was my first and only real friend since Matt died. The months we’d spent not really speaking had hurt. To have her friendship back along with a new one in Lorhaven gave me the sense of family I’d deprived myself of for so long.

“There’s something I want to ask you,” I said. He made a sound, sort of an agreement, and shrugged out of the jacket to fling it over the back of the couch. “You called me down here because you want to ask me a question?”

“It’s not something I could do over the phone.”

He folded his arms over his chest and regarded me in a way that would probably make a lesser man piss his pants. Lorhaven didn’t intimidate me. He never did, and he never would.

But, uh, yeah… I was anxious right now. “I know how close you are to A.” I began. “He told me you’re more like a dad to him than The Fucker ever was.”

Lorhaven’s arms dropped to his sides. “He told you that?”

I nodded. “Yeah. And honestly, I’m fucking grateful to you for that.”

Shock widened his very dark eyes. I committed the look to memory as I smothered a smile. I’d likely not see that look on his face ever again.

My voice dropped. “I think you were the one thing that stood between Arrow and total shutdown a few years ago.”

“Until you came along,” he replied, gruff.

“Thank you for everything you did for him, for everything you do. I know you already know how much he appreciates you, but now you know I do, too.”

“He’s my family,” he said, like it was all he needed to say.

I half smiled.

“As touching as this is…” Lorhaven studied me. “Why do I get the feeling you want something?”

“Because I do.” I took a deep breath. “I want Arrow.”

He made a sound. “Pretty sure you already got that.”

I shook my head once. “I want to marry him.”

Lorhaven jolted like someone tossed a bucket of ice water over his head. “You wanna what?”

“I’m gonna ask Arrow to marry me, but before I do, I’d like your permission.”

The only thing more dangerous than a dark secret is a damaged heart…

Shane Brandon has been pushed to the brink, torn between his corrupt family and his explosive, all-consuming desire for Emily Stevens, who he now knows is not who, and what, she seems. Has he trusted the wrong person? Will she, not his brother Derek, be the ultimate destruction of his family Empire.
Emily tries to run from Shane, but he will stop her, confront her, force her to reveal all – one hot touch and kiss, at a time, under every intimate detail of who this woman is, and what she wants, is exposed. But as he tears away the dangers of the unknowns with the woman in his bed, and in his heart, The Martina Cartel, has set their sites on his company, his family, and the one piece of leverage they believe he won’t gamble with: Emily.

Excerpt

“You make me remember I need to be good and right in my choices.”

“Do you ever question doing what is good and right?”

“There have been times when I felt like my hand was forced.”

“When you were a lawyer?”

“No,” I say. “I manipulated the law, as does every attorney, but I never broke it. I’m talking about when I’m with my family.”

“Did you go where they lead?”

“Not so far.”

“That sounds like you might.”

“I don’t want to be them.”

“You aren’t them. You don’t have to be them.”

“I know that,” I say. “But you just keep telling me so I don’t forget.” Her legs hit the bed frame and she grips my arms.

I lean into a kiss and she pulls back, her hand pressing on my chest. “Wait. Now it’s my turn to say talk to me. Are you okay?”

“Death happened. The one thing I can’t control. It’s not the night to push me to stop protecting you. Not tonight. Can you do that?”

“Yes. We can.”

“We,” I repeat, “and that word sounds as good on my tongue as I know you’re going to taste. I’m going to make love to you properly. The way I plan to many times in our future.” I reach down and untie her robe, letting it fall open; my fingers sliding underneath just far enough to tease her nipples. They pucker beneath my touch, and her lashes flutter, settling on her cheeks. “But when it’s over, I’m going to fuck you hard and fast again.”

I tug gently on her nipples and she bites her lips. “Look at me,” I order gently.

She opens her eyes, and there is desire in their depths, but there are shadows there too,. I do not think she intends for me to see doubt or uncertainty that wasn’t there before. That I do not like or wish to know ever again. I want it gone. Now. Tomorrow. Forever. I reach up and rip the silk tie from her robe, wrapping it around my hand, before I reach up and caress the robe off her shoulder, letting it tumble to the ground.

“Give me your hands,” I order, but it’s really a question: Does she still trust me?

She studies me for several beats, her eyes narrowing ever so slightly, and I do not know what she sees in mine, but she offers me her hands. I wrap the silk around her wrists then lean in close to her, my cheek against her cheek, my body touching her nowhere else. “Now you’re at my mercy.”

“Yes,” she agrees. “I am.”

“How do you feel about that?”

“Warm.”

My lips curve with the answer that is every bit the combination of sweet sexy honesty I’ve come to expect from her. “I’m going to make you warmer.”

“Promise?”

I go still with that question, which on the surface is innocent, but I wonder if it truly is or if it’s about those shadows in her eyes. “I promise,” I say. “And you know, I never—”

“Make a promise you don’t keep.”

“Exactly,” I say, and her reference to my previous words tells me that I am not the only one on a mission of trust, and I intend to deserve hers.

I bring my hands to just above her shoulders, letting them lightly touch her before beginning a slow caress downward. She makes a soft little sound that has my cock thickening and my blood running hot, but I won’t rush this. My lips follow, tracing a line down one of her arms, then the other. I lean and caress my lips over hers, a feather light touch that teases me, if not her.

I take her hands in mine, pressing them behind her head. “Hold them there, for me, so I can see all of you. Understand?”

“You intend to tease me incessantly,” she says, without so much as a hint of hesitation. “Yes. I understand.”

I wrap my arm around her waist and pull her naked body against me, my free hand on hers above her head, our mouths a breath apart. “I intend to lick every part of you, and then do it again, so yes. If that’s the definition of incessant teasing, then yes. I am going to tease you incessantly.” I close my mouth down on hers, my tongue licking into her mouth, a deep, hungry tasting I force myself to end far too quickly. “That was the beginning. Should I could continue?”

“Yes. Please.”

“Please,” I say. “I like that.”

Tracey’s Review

I know that this means that this war has changed me. I know that winning it—which I must—will change me even more. But I am certain that I won’t lose myself, as long as I don’t lose Emily.

Oh, my gosh, this story! Lisa Renee Jones keeps the action coming with the second book of her Dirty Money series, and she does not let up. There are so many twists, turns, and surprises that my head was spinning as I worked my way through this story.

Shane knows that Emily is hiding something big, and he’s determined that he will a) not stop until he knows what it is, and b) will not let her go, no matter what it is. He is all in here, and, even knowing that the stakes could be more than even he realizes, Shane is bound and determined to get the girl and free his family business from the corruption that his brother has brought to their door.

DAMAGE CONTROL has all of the mystery of a whodunit, all of the tension of a crime read, and all of the passion that is part of Lisa’s signature style. The action doesn’t let up one bit, and, if possible, I fell more in love with Shane as the story went on. He is willing to do whatever he has to to make sure that Emily is safe and that his family’s actions do not succeed in dragging Brandon Enterprises under. This book had me on the edge of my seat, and left me waiting impatiently for the next installment. BAD DEEDS (Book 3) cannot get her quickly enough, because I need answers, darn it! Another 5 stars for this book, and for the series. It is a thrill ride that does not disappoint, and you need to be reading it, like, now.

Michel’s Review

MEANT TO BE is the first book in the new Sweetbriar Cove series by author Melody Grace, and I am in love. A huge fan of Melody’s Beachwood Bay/Callahan and Oak Harbor series, I was super-excited to see that she was starting with a whole new set of books. Although this is just the first book, it’s full of Melody’s signature themes of community, friendship, and love, and is filled with characters that I’d want to spend time with, quirky, caring, and fun to be around.

I love Poppy. She’s going through what I feel like all authors must. Prolific in her life as a romance author, she’s finally experiencing the dreaded writer’s block, at the same time that she questions her own life and whether or not happily ever afters do exist. A retreat to her aunt’s cottage in lovely Sweetbriar Cove is just what the doctor ordered. Except that that darned block is going nowhere, and, to top things off, there’s that darned Cooper Nicholson, working on the house right next door. Cooper was Poppy’s childhood nemesis, and things aren’t looking much better in the ‘gosh, he’s annoying’ department. Except that now Cooper is a lot hotter and sexier than then Cooper, and keeps turning up like the proverbial bad penny.

Cooper. Mmm, Cooper. He’s sexy, he’s self-employed, he’s settled. What’s not to like? Poppy’s arrival upsets his normal, though, and he’s not quite ready for all of the things that she makes him feel. Because, attraction and friendship, he’s all in. But, happily ever after? That’s for other people. Until a certain romance writer makes him question everything that he thinks he knows about relationships and love.

This book was like a treat for me. I devoured it from cover to cover, like it was my favorite dark chocolate. I am absolutely head-over-heels for Poppy, Cooper, and the rest of the folks from Sweetbriar Cove, and I sort of wish that I could drop in and hang out with them. I thoroughly enjoyed and appreciated that Melody, herself a writer of romance novels, wrote Poppy as a woman that isn’t sure whether she believes that the sort of love that she’s writing about is possible in real life. I mean, talk about a crisis of belief. And, as a firmly avowed lover of the HEA, I couldn’t have been happier that Poppy and Cooper became a vivid example that it is possible when the right one comes along.

MEANT TO BE is an easy 5-star read for me, and left me already hungry for the next book in the series. There are plenty of folks that need their story, and I can’t wait to see who Melody writes about next. Sweetbriar Cove is one of my new favorite places, and I can’t recommend enough that you add this one to your TBR. You’ll be glad that you did.
