Bastard Bachelor Society
The Bachelors Club – Book 1
By Sara Ney
***
What is the Bastard Bachelor Society?
 
It’s a gentleman’s club—like the dignified men of the past used to have.
 
Except, we’re not gentleman, and we’re not dignified.
 
We’re ineligible bachelors; bored, jaded and not looking for relationships. Quite the opposite actually 
 
We’re so committed to being single, we’ve created a high stakes bet to see who can remain single the longest. Rules are involved. Prizes.
 
Laugh it up, but I’m no loser. 
 
Enemy number one to my single status? My irresistible neighbor, Abbott Margolis. She with her evil cat Desdemona, and Sexy AF pencil skirts. She’s kind and beautiful and hilarious. We can’t get involved, no matter how much her meddling grandmother pushes us together. But if I was going to lose this bet for anyone? It would for Abbott. 
 
Let’s face facts: I’m a bastard, unwilling to settle down. 
 
Especially when there’s a bet to win.

Michel’s Review
Sara Ney has a brand new series that is going to capture the readers complete attention just like her Douche Bag Series and Jock Hard Series.  Although she’s stepped off campus and out the frat house, her leading men still have a lot to learn about women, love, and relationships. They may have graduated from college but still are holding onto some of their frat house mentality until they meet the right kind of woman to change their way of thinking. Bastard Bachelor Society is the first book in this sassy, saucy, fun loving, and super sexy series.  Brooks Bennett didm’t see this coming. He barely got to break in that blue velvet smoking jacket and cuban cigar.
***
Bachelor Bastard Society is written from multiple POV’s including the precious Pussy of Terror, Desdemona.  Brooks Bennett doesn’t know what hits him when Abbott Margolis and the Pussy of Terror sink their charming claws into him with promises of good food, great company, a fantastic Nan that knows how to give the right gifts, and hopefully great sex. When Brooks realizes what’s at stake, he’s all in even if he has to give up his baseball season tickets, a four wheeler that he was going to buy property for, and a vacation time share home in Myrtle Beach. Sometimes a guy just has to know when to surrender. Sacrifice will bring him greater rewards. It will bring him love.
***
One bachelor down, two more to go. I can’t wait to see what comes next!
***
Sara Ney has once again delivered a fun, heartwarming romance that makes me tingle all over!

New Release … 2020 Favorite… 5+ Star Review: Fighting For Rain by BB Easton – The Rain Trilogy – Book 2

FFR - BT banner.jpg

“This is a series I urge every single person to read. It’s so unique and artistic and has me hanging off of every word.”
– Amo Jones, Wall Street Journal Bestselling Author

Fighting for Rain, the second installment in The Rain Trilogy everyone’s raving about from BB Easton, is out now!

Fighting for Rain final ebook

The world was supposed to end on April 23, but Rainbow Williams’s world ended days before that.

The mass hysteria caused by the impending apocalypse claimed everything she’d ever loved. Her family. Her city. Her will to live.

Until she met him.

Wes Parker didn’t have anything left for the apocalypse to take…he’d already lost it all by the time he was nine-years-old. His family. His home. His hope of ever being loved.

Until he met her.

Brought together by fate and bound by a love that would last lifetimes, Rain and Wes were prepared to die together on April 23.

They were not prepared for what would happen on April 24

Excerpt:

“Did I pass?” Rain asks as I stop at the bottom of the tree house ladder to give her a hand up.

“I think I’m the one who passed.” I give her a swat on the ass as she heads up and chuckle when she yelps in surprise. “I know your song.”

“Oh, really?”

When I climb in behind her, Rain is sitting, facing me with her arms folded over her chest.

For a guy who has nothing to prove, I fucking love proving myself to this girl.

I sit with my back against the plywood wall and strum something softer and slower and definitely sadder than anything I’ve played for her before. I’m afraid it might be too much, considering how far she’s come today, but fuck it. It’s the truth, and right now, the truth—and this guitar—is all I got.

“I think you might be a Paramore girl.”

The simple, soulful melody is synchronized with every beat of my own bleeding heart as I open my mouth and sing the first line.

About a girl watching her daddy cry.

Rain clutches the blanket to her chest and listens as I tell her the story of a woman who’s afraid to get hurt after watching her parents break each other’s hearts. She tries to protect herself. She tries to avoid the pain of being left. But when she finally falls in love, she realizes that it’s worth the risk.

I hope she’s fucking right.

I can’t really see Rain’s expression in the dark, but as I let the final note fade out, I know I’m going to find tears before I even reach for her face.

“How did you do that?” She sniffles, and when she leans into my touch, I know I got her.

I shrug. “When you’re in the system, you get good at figuring people out.”

She inhales deeply and sighs. “So, what’s the name of my new favorite song?”

I place the guitar in the corner and crawl over to her. Laying her down, I take the wadded-up blanket out of her arms and set it behind her head like a pillow. “‘The Only Exception.’”

Gazing down at her, I know now that that’s exactly what she is for me. The only exception to all of my rules.

No getting attached.

Leave before you get left.

Supplies. Shelter. Self-defense.

Survival above all else.

Now, they’ve all been crossed out with a giant X, and next to them, in murderous block letters, are the words Protect Rainbow Williams. That’s all I fucking care about now. Keeping her safe. Keeping her—period.

“Wes?” she asks, her voice small and shaky as she slides her fingers into my hair and pushes it away from my face. “Will you still be here when I wake up?”

Bracing myself on my forearms, I lower myself onto her soft, warm body and press my lips to hers. Blood explodes through my veins on contact, but I don’t move. I hold that kiss until I feel her relax beneath me. Until I know she’ll believe me when I finally promise, “Forever.”

Satisfied, Rain pulls my face back down to hers and kisses me like forever might actually exist. Slowly. Sweetly. Without the ticking clock of April 23 looming over our heads. Without blood on our hands or ash in our hair. Without wonder or worry about how it will end. Because we started at the fucking end.

Now, we get to begin.

Michel’s Review

2020 Favorite

Fighting For Rain and Dying For Rain by BB Easton are my most anticipated novels of 2020. After reading Praying For Rain I could not wait to see what happened on April 23rd to Wes and Rain.

April 23rd has come and gone. They survived but what exactly did they survive? What happens on April 24th and everyday after that. What has become of the world they knew and the new world emerging? The only thing they thought they could depend on was each other but that is another fallacy that is proving to be a lie.

The only truth is the survival instinct has only begun. The world has changed and everyone has choices to make. Some will become leaders, some will become saviors, some will become liars, some will righteous, some will become repulsive, and some will become recluses. Society has broken down and the new world emerging may not be worth surviving for. Dying may be the only option.

I hung on every word and was completely shocked by the direction this trilogy has taken. It is unpredictable, hair raising, adventurous, and philosophical as well as being a red hot romance. Who ever thought the end of the world would be so sexy? Who ever thought the world would end and humanity would be redefined?

BB Easton has my complete attention and my calculated anticipation. I cannot wait for Dying For Rain , the final book in the trilogy to release.

I can easily see this trilogy being made into a major motion picture! Well done BB Easton!

About BB Easton

bb easton author photo

BB Easton lives in the suburbs of Atlanta, Georgia, with her long-suffering husband, Ken, and two adorable children. She recently quit her job as a school psychologist to write books about her punk rock past and deviant sexual history full-time. Ken is suuuper excited about that.

Praying for Rain is BB’s first full-length work of fiction. The idea, fittingly, came to her in a dream.

If that sounds like the kind of person you want to go around being friends with, then by all means, feel free to drop her a line. You can find her procrastinating at all of the following places:

INAPPROPRIATE IS LIVE!

SYNOPSIS

Terminated for inappropriate behavior.

I couldn’t believe the letter in my hands.

Nine years.  Nine damn years I’d worked my butt off for one of the largest companies in America, and I was fired with a form letter when I returned home from a week in Aruba.

All because of a video taken when I was on vacation with my friends—a private video made on my private time. Or so I thought…

Pissed off, I cracked open a bottle of wine and wrote my own letter to the gazillionaire CEO telling him what I thought of his company and its practices.

I didn’t think he’d actually respond.

I certainly never thought I’d suddenly become pen pals with the rich jerk.

Eventually, he realized I’d been wronged and made sure I got my job back.

Only…it wasn’t the only thing Grant Lexington wanted to do for me.

But there was no way I was getting involved with my boss’s boss’s boss. Even if he was ridiculously gorgeous, confident, and charming.

It would be completely wrong, inappropriate even.

Sort of like the video that got me into trouble to begin with.

Two wrongs don’t make a right.

But sometimes it’s twice as fun.

Michel’s Review

I have been a huge fan of Vi Keeland’s writing since she began her publishing career. I have watched her develop her craft, hone in on her reader audience, join forces with Penelope Ward to become part of one the most popular writing teams, and trade her career to follow her heart. She has earned the well deserved success in the romance publishing world. It has been a delight to witness her growth as a writer as well as becoming one of her fangirl Violets. The one thing that has made her a success is staying true to herself and her formula. Nobody and I mean nobody writes a hero like Vi Keeland. Her hero’s are sexy as sin, smart mouthed, dirty talking men who can back up every single word while still being vulnerable and flawed beneath the surface. Their confidence and masculinity is a result of intelligence, sense of humor, ability to value those they love, to respect women at all times, and tune into their personal emotions when push comes to show. Oh and did I say they were sexy as sin … always in a Vi Keeland novel. The best part of Vi’s writing is her ability to match the hero with a saucy heroine that can handle everything he dishes out and give it back with whip cream on top.

Inappropriate was more than an inter-office romance. It was the beginning of something both Ireland and Grant needed in their lives. They had both lived through emotional trauma. They both understood both sides love, the ugly and the beautiful. They both deserved a chance to grasp the beautiful and build their own love story. First they have to get past human resources, the law, family business partners, a bridezilla,a crazy grandpa, a sassy teenager, and crappy contractor. Oh and maybe their very own flawed hearts. Let the fun begin… Grant and Ireland are in for an Inappropriate sexcapade Vi Keeland style!

I absolutely loved Inappropriate by Vi Keeland . There is nothing like a Vi Keeland reading adventure!

Tracey’s Review

Y’all. Every single time that Meghan March introduces a new couple, I think, ‘This is my favorite couple of Meghan’s!” Let me tell you, friends, this might be it. Scarlett and Gabriel and the group of people that they love are the deal, and THE FIGHT FOR FOREVER, the perfect wrap-up for one of my new favorite set of books from Ms. March.

Each of the two previous books has been a great read in their own right, but this one has all of the action, all of the love, all of the feels. Scarlett and Gabriel are turning the typical Cinderella story on its ear, coming together as the power couple that no one was expecting, and writing their own happy ending. Edge of my seat much? To the very last page, and I wouldn’t have had it any other way.

Meghan kept me guessing right up to the end, paving the way for what I am hoping is the story that I cannot wait to read. Was that my jaw on the ground? Why, yes, yes it was, as Meghan proved once again that she is at the top of her game as one of the reigning queens of contemporary romantic suspense.

If you’re a fan of Meghan’s, then you know that this book, and, indeed, the whole Legend trilogy, is a must-read. If she’s been on your TBR, then go, right now, and grab these books. Go. Now. You can thank me later… ❤️

Growing up, Ramsey Stewart branded my soul in ways time could never heal.

At twelve, he asked me to be his girlfriend.

At thirteen, he gave me my first kiss.

By sixteen, we’d fallen in love, planned a future together, and had our eyes set on the horizon.

Love never fails, right?

But for Ramsey, it did.

Love failed him.

I failed him.

The entire world failed him.

At seventeen, Ramsey was convicted of killing the boy who assaulted me.

Move on,he wrote in his first and only letter from prison.

Start a new life, he urged.

I don’t love you anymore, he lied.

There was no such thing as giving up on Ramsey. Love may have been our curse, but he was mine—then, now, and forever.

So here I am, twelve long years later, waiting for a man I don’t even know to emerge from between the chain link gates.

Excerpt

It was funny. I’d spent almost half my life surrounded by the biggest, baddest criminals the state of Georgia had been able to capture. Yet, I was terrified of a five-foot-five woman who for some asinine reason was still in love with me.

I couldn’t be around her. Not if I wanted to keep my head straight and my eye on the prize. I had three years before I got off parole. I needed to get a job, tuck away some cash, and, the second I was allowed to leave Georgia, get the hell out of there. Maybe, if I was lucky, I’d be able to convince my sister to come with me. We didn’t have to go far. We could stay in the south if she wanted. South Carolina, North Carolina, Alabama, Tennessee—there were schools everywhere. Nora wouldn’t have trouble finding a job. The hardest part would be convincing her to leave Thea.

However, maybe if she did, Thea would finally move on with her life and stop obsessing about me.

I’d known they lived together for a while. I didn’t want anything to do with Thea while I was locked up, but I was happy as hell Nora had someone to lean on. I had been under the impression that Nora had gotten her own place when she found out about my release. I had been under that impression because Nora had straight-up told me she was getting her own place after I’d declared there was no way I was living with Thea.

Now, I was hiding in my room, waiting for Nora to wake up, open my door, and escort me to breakfast like a damn bodyguard so I could avoid confrontation.

Next up in my efforts to kill time was a workout. Sit ups, push-ups, planks, running in place. This was when I realized Nora hadn’t bought me any deodorant.

Another shower.

Another naked lap around the bedroom, and this time, I managed to keep my hands off my cock.

Finally, I got dressed. This required me to pick through a bunch of preppy shit Nora had bought for me to find tattered jeans and a fitted green tee that clung to my chest like a damn glove. In my closet, I found a belt and a pair of distressed brown lace-up boots that maybe could have doubled as combat boots if the war was taking place on a runway. But what the hell did I know about style? I’d been wearing orange or puke beige for almost half my life.

When I was done with all of that and there was still no sign of Nora, I sat on the edge of the bed and decided to give the phone thing a try. I wasn’t totally out of the technology loop. We had computers at the library and we were allowed to use them if we earned the privileges. But they might as well have been dinosaurs compared to the phone she’d bought me. I couldn’t even get it to read my face with the fancy secret laser thing. I gave up trying pretty quickly.

So there I was, bored out of my mind, starving, and poking at my newfound wrinkles in the bathroom mirror, when I heard a knock at my door.

“Ramsey?”

I froze, my eyes locked on the mirror, panic staring back at me.

Thea.

Jesus. I needed to find somewhere else to live.

Leaning out of the bathroom, I stared at the door. If I was super quiet, maybe she’d think I was still asleep and go the hell away.

When I didn’t reply, she knocked again. Her voice was timid and sweet, not at all like the fearless girl I’d grown up with. I hated it.

“Ramsey? You hungry? I’m making breakfast? I was wondering if you wanted something?” Everything from my name to the fact that she was making breakfast was a question, as if maybe she was asking permission to cook in her own house.

My stomach was currently feasting on my backbone. Still, I said nothing.

She sighed. “Okay. Well, if you change your—” There were several seconds of silence.

I quirked my eyebrow at the door, trying to figure out why she’d abruptly stopped talking, and then cursed my inability to develop x-ray vision.

I held my breath, hoping to hear her footsteps as she walked away.

No. Such. Fucking. Luck.

The door swung open and she came walking inside with her hands stacked over her eyes. “Look, I know you’re awake. I heard you running earlier. I also heard you take at least three showers. Sorry, but the house isn’t that big. Neither is the hot water heater. Are you at least dressed so I can open my eyes?”

Brave. Unapologetic. And completely oblivious to boundaries. Now that was the Thea I knew.

“Get out,” I barked.

“Dressed? Not dressed? Help me out here?”

“Get. Out.”

She kept her eyes closed. “You gotta eat, Ramsey. You can’t stay locked up in this room forever.”

I wanted to tell her to get the hell out again. Honestly, it was on the tip of my tongue. But it never made it past my lips because my traitorous eyes stole a head-to-toe of her lithe body. She was barefoot, wearing jeans—tight ones that tapered at her ankle. They looked like mine in the sense that they had a rip in the knee. They didn’t look like mine in the sense that they hugged the curve of her hips and more than likely her ass too. A pink tank top stretched across her chest, and I swear on my life, fuck x-ray vision because I could see the pebble of her nipples beneath the fabric.

It wasn’t a ridiculous dress.

It wasn’t stupid fucking heels.

She wasn’t wearing a face full of clown makeup.

She was just Thea.

The nostalgia pumped through my veins like acid even as my cock stirred. Fuck, I should have jerked off again in the shower.

“I’m dressed,” I bit out, desperate for her to put her damn hands down and maybe use them to cover her tits instead.

Her long, brown lashes fluttered as she opened her eyes. Those fucking eyes had once owned me. As a huge smile lit her face, I felt the claim all over again.

“Oh, look, you chose one of the outfits I picked out for you.”

Of course I had. Of fucking course. As soon as I got her out of my room, I was going to take the outfit off and light it on fire.

Michel’s Review

Once again Aly Martinez has commanded my complete attention and insisted I stay glued to the pages until I finished RELEASE, her latest novel.

Thea Hull and Ramsey Stewart lives became intertwined when both suffered their own personal tragedies. They were kids trying to survive the loss and heartache while surviving the next phase of their young lives. Their friendship gave them strength to survive childhood. Their friendship gave them an undeniable passion for one another that is only found once in a lifetime. That love was supposed to be the beginning  of their happily ever after. The night that should of been a celebration of their love turned into another tragic event that destroyed their future. For twelve long years they have both suffered the consequences of that ill fated night that changed their lives forever. The one thing that never changed was their deep love for one another. They must find their way back to one another and learn to trust in that love once again.

Release is more than a tragic love story. It’s a story of faith, trust, love for family, and a willingness to forgive. It’s about everything that really matters in life.

Once again Aly Martinez nailed it and held my complete attention. I loved RELEASE!

Come Back For Me
The Arrowood Brothers Series – Book 1
By Corinne Michaels
***
Blurb:
One night, eight years ago, she gave me peace.
No names.
No promises.
Just two broken people, desperate to quiet their pain and
grief.
In the morning, she was gone and had taken my solace with
her. I left for the military that day, vowing never to return to Pennsylvania.
When my father dies, I’m forced to go home to bury him.
At least I’ll finally be rid of his farm, which is grown over and tangled with
memories I’ve fought to forget.
And that’s when I find her. She’s even more beautiful
than I remember and has the most adorable kid I’ve ever seen.
Years have passed, but my feelings are the same, and this
time I refuse to let her go. They say you can’t bury the past, and they’re
right. Because when long-ago secrets are exposed, rocking us both to the core,
I have no choice but to watch her walk away again . . .

Michel’s Review
Come Back For Me by Corinne Michaels is the first book in her new captivationing Arrowood Brothers series. Four brothers shared a horrific, abusive childhood that not only bonded them but also drove them away from each other and their family home. They made a pact that they would never return home and would never have children to carry on the Arrowood legacy. They have returned home to bury their abusive, drunken father. They are going to sell off the family farm and never look back.  Their abusive father is going to strike out one last time from the grave with his last will and testament. He is determined to destroy the last bit of joy in the Arrowood name. All four brothers will once again pay a high price for being born an Arrowood. They may hate their legacy but the past they left behind includes more than despair and heartache. They may have left the only shred of happiness they will ever have in life. Vows can be broken, souls can be bruised and battered, but the heart will continue to beat until the love that was meant to heal can do it’s job.
*
Connor Arrowood is forced to resign from the Navy Seals due to a leg injury that hasn’t healed right. Instead of a heroic, joyful release from military service he is forced to return home for his father’s funeral. He’s hoping the money from selling the farm will finance his next step in life.   Rather than getting an inheritance he is getting an ultimatum. His father’s will demands that each of the four Arrowood Brothers spends six months home on the family farm or the inheritance from the proceeds of the farm will be forfeited. Each brother has to comply or they all lose. Connor is expected to be the first to stay on the farm because he is not tied down to a career and has time on his hands. He is also very handy and can repair the broken down farm.
*
The only good memory Connor has of Arrowood Farm and Sugarloaf, PA after his mother passed away when he was seven is his last night there. The night before he shipped out for the Navy. He had an exciting, anonmymous affair with a woman who captivated his heart and soothed his soul. Their promise of one night only has stayed with him all through his adult life. He never dared to dream he would come face to face with the woman of his dreams once again. Nor did he ever imagine that seeing her again would change his heart towards the Arrowood Farm.
*
Ellie met Connor on the night she found herself at crossroads for her future. She chose the right place to lay her weary heart but chose the wrong road the next day. Once again she’s at the crossroads in her life. This time she can’t choose the wrong road because her daughter’s life also depends on it. She never dreamed she would meet Connor Arrowood once again and that he would be her shelter in the storm.
*
Their lives are tied together from the past and their future is dependent on letting go of the secrets from the past that bind their nightmares. Only they can choose to love one another no matter what. A little girl is depending on their love for her happy future.
*
The Arrowood Farm may not be living hell after all. It may be Ellie and Connor’s slice of heaven.
*
I can’t wait to see what happens next in Arrowood Brothers saga. These broken men are coming home.
*
Corinne Michaels has once again captured my heart with Come Back For Me.
