About BROKEN BEATS

Darren
Single father
Widower
Retired
Three things I never thought I’d be by thirty, yet all my daily reality.
This is not the life I would have chosen, but it’s the hand I’ve been dealt.
I love my daughter.
I loved Belle.
I’m not interested in more heartache.
Relationships are a thing of the past.
Until I meet her
She’s the awakening I desperately need, but one I’m not sure I deserve.

Haddie
Everything happens for a reason.
Time heals all wounds.
You’re too young to give up on love.
They say that, but they’re wrong.
My world crumbled forever when my fiancé died.
Then I met him
He’s flawed in the same ways.
Broken in the same places.
Scared of the same things.
He looks at me like I’m his salvation.
And I want to be, but an open heart means risking a broken one.

New Release + Release Blitz + 4 Star Review: F-Bomb by Lani Lynn Vale

 

 

 

 

 

You murder a man, and all of a sudden people are scared of you.
Slate Solis went from being a guy that people went to in
times of need to an ex-con that people crossed the street to avoid being too close to.
He knows he’s done wrong, but out of all of his sins, only one really bothers him—coveting thy neighbor’s wife.
Harleigh Belle—the cute little lady that never gives him a
second glance.
After seeing her for the first time while he was in prison,
she’s stayed on his mind for three long years. Each time she comes in to visit
with her friend on family day, he can’t help but stare.
Then the day comes that he’s set free, and he’s almost
disappointed that he’ll never see her again.
Except fate has different plans.
He hasn’t been back in his house for more than three hours
when he sees her.
Harleigh Belle in all her glory…oh, and her husband that is
everything Slate isn’t.
He tells himself that her being fifty feet away from him,
all day every day, is a complete coincidence.
One that he shouldn’t take
advantage of. The more time passes, the harder it gets to stay away. Until one
day, and one very ill-timed thunderstorm, ruin everything.
Who knew that baby-making-weather was a real thing?

Tracey’s Review
Okay, so I loved Sons of Anarchy as much as the next gal, but I have to admit, I’m not much for the MC reads. Until now, that is. Because I just finished F-BOMB, the ninth book in the Bear Bottom Guardians MC series by author Lani Lynn Vale, and I am totally hooked.

Let me preface this by saying that I’m fairly certain that this series is not representative of the typical motorcycle club read. This book is quirky, funny, and with just enough suspense to keep things interesting. Yes, there is a club, but the Bear Bottom men, and the women that love them, are all about doing good, and about making their little piece of Texas safer, kinder, and gentler for the people that they help.

Harleigh’s and Slate’s story had me from the get-go, and totally invested until the last page. I just loved them both, and the interchanges between them were laugh-out-loud funny, and sometimes downright steamy, but these two characters clearly belong together.

It’s not often that I pick up a series part way through, because I am a fan of starting at the beginning and working forward, but Lani Lynn has such an avid following, and is so prolific, that I decided to take the plunge. I can absolutely say that I can’t wait to go back to the earlier books and get all caught up, because F-BOMB is just that enjoyable. 4 stars makes this one a definite thumbs-up for me, and me a happy member of the LLV club. Grab it for yourself and enjoy.

 
 
 
 
 
 
Lani Lynn Vale is a USA Today Bestselling Author of
over thirty titles. She is married with three children, two dogs, two cats, a
donkey, and a couple (a couple also meaning over twenty) chickens.
When she’s not writing, you can find her curled up
in her favorite chair reading.
Lani is married with three children and lives in the
Great State of Texas.

Dance With Me AMAZON.jpg

Dance With Me, an all-new novel in her beloved With Me In Seattle Series by New York Times Bestselling Author Kristen Proby

Starla. Just Starla.

She doesn’t have a last name, and she doesn’t need one. Not with that many Grammys on her mantel. Everyone knows her kick-ass, no-holds-barred style of singing, dancing, and living.

No one knows that America’s Sweetheart is still living with the wreckage of four years ago, when her world was torn apart. Losing her fiancé was devastating, but she’s channeled all of that into her music. Closing off her heart opened a hundred new doors.

Officer Levi Crawford, Seattle PD.

For almost twenty years, Levi has been consumed by the law. He eats, sleeps, and breathes work. Not just because he’s a workaholic, but because he loves it. Sure, he doesn’t have time for a woman and barely sees the rest of his family, but it’s a trade he’s always been happy to make.

Until Starla.

Two lonely hearts could learn to beat again, if they’re willing to dance together.

Excerpt:

“Hello, Starla.”

“Well, shit.”

My eyes soak her in from head to toe. How did she get more beautiful than before? Her auburn hair is pulled up in a knot on top of her head, and she’s in a cropped T-shirt with a pair of skin-tight shorts.

My dick is immediately at full attention.

“Wh-what are you doing here?”

“I was over at Wyatt’s house.” I point across the street. “And he said you were staying here.”

She leans on the doorframe, crosses her arms over her chest, and bites her full bottom lip.

She’s sex personified, standing right in front of me.

“Am I under arrest?”

“No.” I reach out to brush a loose strand of hair behind her ear, and the slight contact of skin against skin sends a shock wave through my already energized body. “No, you basically fell in my lap, and I decided to take advantage of it.”

“If you think I’m going to lead you straight up to bed, you have another thing coming.”

I narrow my eyes. “You just insulted both of us.”

She sighs and shakes her head, pinches the bridge of her nose between her eyes, and then laughs. “I apologize. You surprised me. Come on in.”

She stands back, and I follow her in, looking around the open living space.

“Do you want something to drink?”

“No, thanks.”

“I need a water. Follow me.”

She walks ahead of me to the kitchen, and my eyes are pinned to her round ass. I remember how the globes of those cheeks feel in my hands as she rides me. I remember everything.

“Sure you don’t want some?”

I try to swallow around my dry tongue and just nod. “Turns out, I do.”

She passes me a bottle and then takes a sip of her own.

“So, is the tour over?” I ask.

“Yes, and I’m on vacation.” She frowns slightly, staring down at her water. “Forced vacation.”

“Why?”

She blinks up at me. “Because I was exhausted, and the doctor insisted.”

I narrow my eyes again, pissed that she worked herself into exhaustion. “Starla—”

“I’m fine,” she insists. “And I’m already feeling better. Also, I owe you an apology.”

That stops me short. “No, you don’t.”

“Oh, I do.” She takes another sip, then sets the bottle aside and leans on the island. I get a great view of her cleavage.

She’s too sexy for her own damn good.

“I’m sorry I didn’t reply to your messages, Levi.”

“Why didn’t you?”

She blows out a breath. “Because I was a little overwhelmed. The sex was—”

“Damn incredible.”

“Yeah. It was. Intense is also a good word for it, and I get the feeling that you’re an intense man.”

I nod once. “If I hurt you or scared you—”

“No, it’s not that at all,” she hurries to assure me. “I didn’t do anything that I didn’t want or enjoy. I’m sorry if I gave you that impression. I hadn’t been with a man in a long time, and we have some powerful chemistry.”

That’s the understatement of the year. I can feel the electricity flowing between us like a rushing river.

“That’s really all I’m comfortable saying right now,” she admits and swallows.

“That’s enough.”

For now.

About Kristen:

Kristen was born and raised in a small resort town in her beloved Montana. In her mid-twenties, she decided to stretch her wings and move to the Pacific Northwest, where she made her home for more than a dozen years.

During that time, Kristen wrote many romance novels and joined organizations such as RWA and other small writing groups. She spent countless hours in workshops, and more mornings than she can count up before the dawn so she could write before going to work. She submitted many manuscripts to agents and editors alike, but was always told no. In the summer of 2012, the self-publishing scene was new and thriving, and Kristen had one goal: to publish just one book. It was something she longed to cross off of her bucket list.

Not only did she publish one book, she’s since published close to thirty titles, many of which have hit the USA Today, New York Times and Wall Street Journal Bestsellers lists. She continues to self publish, best known for her With Me In Seattle and Boudreaux series, and is also proud to work with William Morrow, a division of HarperCollins, with the Fusion Series.

Kristen and her husband, John, make their home in her hometown of Whitefish, Montana with their two pugs and two cats.

Release Blitz + 5 Star Review: The Lying Hours by Sara Ney – How To Date A Douchebag Series – Book 5

 

 

The Lying Hours
How To Date A Douchebag Series – Book 5
By Sara Ney
Buy
****

 

ABRAHAM
DAVIS—Honest Abe to his friends—IS IN OVER HIS HEAD…
He’s a fixer
and a do good-er. The all-knowing, resident “grandfather” on the
wrestling team who everyone relies on to fix their problems. His teammates go
to him for everything; advice, homework, or when they need a sober driver at
three in the morning–whether he likes it or not.
Abe’s
current mission is easy: mend his roommates broken heart by helping him find a
girlfriend on the LoveU app–without getting caught in the lie…
SKYLAR
GABRIEL. IS. OVER. IT.
Over her bad
grades. Over her meddling older brother and his two best friends. And over
dating douchebags. What she wants to know is: where have all the nice guys
gone?
She longs
for a handsome, sweet, and honest guy who can make her laugh. In one last ditch
effort to prove that he exists—Skylar turns to LoveU.
On her worst
day, Skylar has no filter (it’s a miracle she hasn’t been ditched mid-date).
On her best,
she’s as wholesome, and sweet, as pie.
On Thursday?
She matches with Abraham Davis’s roommate.
Skylar
Gabriel is falling for the wrong guy—she just doesn’t realize it yet.
Why?
BECAUSE ABE
DAVIS IS A LIAR.
Michel’s Review
The Lying Hours by Sara Ney is another fantastic addition to her How To Date A Douchebag Series. This rom-com new adult series has become one of my favorites.
*
Unlike Sara’s Douchey heroes in the previous books of this series, her new hero, Abe Davis is not. He’s a good guy that would do anything for his friends and there lies the problem. He has been recruited by his best friend JB (the real douchebag) to find him a new girlfriend/ slash hookup after JB finds himself dumped by his last girlfriend. Abe has joined the school dating app trying to find JB the perfect girlfriend or at least one who likes sex and is not annoying. It’s his job to vet the women before JB dates them. Swiping left is easy, finding the perfect candidate not so much. When Abe finds the perfect match he knows he’s in trouble because he wants her for himself.
*
Skylar is different than most of her friends. She’s not interested in dating or hookups. She’s content to hang with the girls, have fun, and read her books. When her friends convince her to join the dating app she’s a bit leary but does it anyway. Talking to JB is fun, challenging, and she’s enjoying their banter. Meeting JB in person is a different story. He is a completely different guy, one she doesn’t like. He seems like a real douchebag. When she meets his roommate Abe she knows dating JB is all wrong for her. She likes Abe and wants him.
*
Sounds like a modern college coed “Cyrano De Bergerac” romance with a whole lot more snark and fun!
*
I loved The Lying Hours by Sara Ney and can’t wait for the next book after reading the epilogue.
*
I highly recommend The Lying Hours by Sara Ney. It is a laugh out loud romance!

 

Sara Ney is
the USA Today Bestselling Author of the How to Date a Douchebag series, and is
best known for her sexy, laugh-out-loud New Adult romances. Among her favorite
vices, she includes: iced latte’s, historical architecture and well-placed
sarcasm. She lives colorfully, collects vintage books, art, loves flea markets,
and fancies herself British.

New Release + Blog Tour: Well Suited by Staci Hart

BT banner.jpg

Well Suited, the final standalone in the Red Lipstick Coalition Series from Staci Hart, is available now!

well-suited-illustrated-sm (1).jpg

Chemistry is my love language.

I’ve always been able to separate feelings from chemosignals. A shot of dopamine, a dash of serotonin, and a sprinkle of oxytocin—and bam. You’re in love.

And when egg meets sperm, you’re pregnant.

I couldn’t even be surprised as I stared down at the little blue plus sign, because I knew exactly when and how, and with whom it happened.

When: approximately five weeks ago.
Who: one night stand.
How: prophylactic malfunction.

The upside? I don’t have to go looking for a suitable mate.

Genetically, he’s the cream of the crop. His musculature is a study in symmetry and strength, his height imposing and dominant. He is a man who thrives on control and command, a man who survives on intelligence and resourcefulness. A perfect male specimen.

And the whole package is wrapped up in a flawlessly tailored suit.

I’m having this baby, and he insists we’re well-suited to have it together. And what’s worse? He wants more, in the way of love and marriage.

But love isn’t real. It’s just a product of chemistry.

And if he changes my mind about that, we’re both in trouble.

About the Author

AuthorPics.jpg

Staci has been a lot of things up to this point in her life — a graphic designer, an entrepreneur, a seamstress, a clothing and handbag designer, a waitress. Can’t forget that. She’s also been a mom, with three little girls who are sure to grow up to break a number of hearts. She’s been a wife, though she’s certainly not the cleanest, or the best cook. She’s also super, duper fun at a party, especially if she’s been drinking whiskey.

From roots in Houston to a seven year stint in Southern California, Staci and her family ended up settling somewhere in between and equally north, in Denver. They are new enough that snow is still magical. When she’s not writing, she’s reading, sleeping, gaming, or designing graphics.

Release Blitz + Giveaway and 5 Star Review: Then He Happened by Claudia Burgoa

Then He Happened

By Claudia Burgoa

Release Date: May 8, 2019

Blurb

Jason is a cynical rich playboy. He doesn’t take life seriously. He doesn’t believe in settling down.

Eileen’s twenty-seventh birthday is almost here. But as always she’s an afterthought in her parent’s minds. Her family is too busy planning a shotgun wedding for her older sister to pay attention to her. And now she has to help. It’s just another year where she’s overlooked.

But the best man is smoking hot. He actually notices her, and makes her feel special.

Jason doesn’t believe in commitment, but Eileen intrigues him.

She’s not the kind of girl he usually hooks up with. She doesn’t even fall for his charm.

He’s made it his mission to convince her that he’s not the shallow man she thinks he is.

But can Jason give up his playboy lifestyle to become the man Eileen needs?

Michel’s Review

Claudia Burgoa has become one of my favorite authors. She is one of those authors who has the ability to blend several different romance genres (tropes) and create an emotional story which keeps the readers glued to the pages. In her latest release, THE HE HAPPENED, she not only delivered an excellent, fun romance but also created characters that jump off the pages.

*

Eileen and Jason somehow get sucked into planning a wedding for her sister and his cousin. Both of these people are ungrateful, selfish, clueless,and broke. Neither Eileen or Jason has time nor the desire to plan a wedding. It’s bad enough they are not only expected to plan the wedding, they are also expected to pay for it. What starts out as a dreadful duty turns into something else altogether. The crazy adventures of wedding planning lead to an unusual friendship and undeniable romance.

*

Between Eileen’s ungrateful family and Jason’s reservations about love after being jilted at the alter, they both persevered. They found what they both needed. They found each other.

*

I loved the banter between Eileen and Jason. They both were witty individuals. Eileen had middle child syndrome and tended to let her family walk all over her. When she finally stood up to her family, I was jumping out of my seat with joy. When Jason realized he deserved real love and was ready to accept it, my heart melted . Never were two people more suited and perfect for each other.

*

I highly recommend reading Then He Happened by Claudia Burgoa. It is a guaranteed delightful reading experience.

New Release, Excerpt, and 5 Star Review: Boyfriend Bargain by Ilsa Madden-Mills

BB - BT banner.jpg

“Who can turn down a sexy hockey star with a big . . . stick? Zack is hot hot hot, and Sugar is the perfect blend of sweet and sassy! Their chemistry sizzles in Boyfriend Bargain!”

— Melanie Harlow, USA Today bestselling author

Boyfriend Bargain, an all-new sexy and emotional sports romance from Wall Street Journal bestselling author Ilsa Madden-Mills, is available now!

IMMBoyfriendBargainBookCover55x85_MEDIUM-new

Wanted: one hot guy with rock-hard abs and a big stick

Broke and desperate, Sugar Ryan has no use for arrogant, bad boy athletes . . . until she’s forced to bargain with the cockiest of them all.

If only he knew she was alive.

Her mission? Get on this hockey player’s radar any way possible.

Zack Morgan is the king of the ice and the bedroom—but nothing prepares him for the mystery girl who shows up everywhere he does—frat parties, his favorite bar, and finally his front door with an offer he can’t refuse. The only rule in her boyfriend bargain: no falling in love.

But after one (um, two) smoking-hot hookups, he’s done with pretending and vows to make their fake relationship real. Too bad she can’t trust a player with a reputation for breaking hearts.

Will this hockey star score his forever girl or will their Boyfriend Bargain end in heartbreak?

Excerpt:

“We should kiss, just get it out of the way and move on,” I say, sure of the crazy idea as each second passes.

There’s a hitch in Z’s breath, and his eyes go straight to my lips. “Works for me.”

“But just one. None of that fancy tongue work.”

“Afraid of falling in love with me?” He grins.

Well. My eyes take in the broad shoulders and the dragon tattoo on his muscled chest. He’s definitely my type: pure, grade A male hotness—exactly what I don’t need. “I won’t fall in love.”

Another grin. “Liar.” 

_______________________________________

Michel’s Review

The Boyfriend Bargain by Ilsa Madden-Mills was more than a new adult sports romance. Although it would seem like the plot was predictable, the story went to another level. The characters were more than college coeds manipulating the system to advance their positions. The both had very pressing situations in life that needed a “bandaid” or a significant other to hold the problems at bay.  Zack Morgan is trying to focus on his final college hockey season before he heads to the Nashville Predators. The pressures of being a superstar player come with problems of their own let alone adding emotional baggage to the heap. Zack needs Sugar by his side to keep the fans and women at a distance so that he can focus on hockey. He’s attracted to her and is falling hard but he’s keeping secrets. Secrets have a way of surfacing at the wrong time and for the wrong reasons. He has to learn to face his own issues before he can fully give himself to Sugar.

Sugar Ryan has not had an easy life. She has had to work hard for everything. She wants to attend Vanderbilt Law School but has been wait listed. She wants to recruit Zack Morgan to be her fake boyfriend for the formal dinner at Vanderbilt for wait list recruits. She has discovered the admissions dean is a hockey fan and knows that Zack will soon be a Nashville Predator. Having him by her side may be the opportunity to make herself stand out amongst the other waitlist recruits. What she didn’t count on was falling for Zack in the process. She has just gotten out of a long term relationship that ended badly. The only thing she needs to focus on now is getting into the law school of her choice.

Life has a way of throwing curves and forcing us to face the hard truths. Life also has a way of sneaking up and rewarding us with what we really need. Zack and Sugar need each other more than they know. Zack and Sugar also need to open their eyes and see what their souls really need.

The Boyfriend Bargain by Ilsa Madden-Mills is more than a new adult romance. It’s a story of finding oneself and sharing your complete self, flaws and strengths, with someone else.

Ilsa Madden-Mills always delivers an excellent story!
