Blurb:

Getting Played, a magnificent new romance by New York Times bestselling author Emma Chase.

Dean Walker is all about keeping life simple. He’s effortlessly talented and intelligent—spending his summers playing drums in the local band and the rest of the year teaching high school in the same Jersey town where he grew up. He likes his love-life simple too, enjoying the commitment-free hook-ups his good looks and sexy charm have always made oh-so easy.

Then he meets Lainey Burrows. And his simple, easy life gets turned upside down.

***

One wild one-night stand was all it was ever supposed to be, so Lainey is shocked when she discovers that her sizzling summer fling is also her son’s new math teacher. But that’s nothing compared to the most unexpected twist of all—their hot hook-up left Lainey knocked-up, and now they’re about to become parents. Together.

What ensues is an addictive, insatiable, sweet and tender romance that won’t be simple, but it will be more than worth the fight.

A stand-alone, contemporary romance.

Excerpt:

Dean

I find Lainey in the living room—standing on a ladder, with those long, toned legs peeking out from itty bitty cotton black shorts and a power drill in her hand, while Bruce Springsteen sings “I’m Goin’ Down” from a speaker in the corner.

And, dear God—the things I could do to her on that ladder.

Wonderful, filthy things that instantly make my heart pound and my cock throb. She’s the perfect height for me to just walk over there and put my mouth between her legs. I picture it, see it in my mind—the way she’d grip my hair and pant my name, arch her back and writhe against my face . . .

But then I catch sight of the small bump of her stomach, and reality smacks me in the head. I think about the baby—and how making Lainey lose her mind three feet off the ground wouldn’t be the safest option. My protective instinct overrides the desire to get freaky on the ladder.

“Hey, Dean.” She sets the drill on the ledge and picks up a beeping light green rectangle, running it along the wall.

“What are you doing up there?” I ask.

I don’t have a decorative bone in my body, but the room looks good—with light gray walls and navy corduroy covered couches, reclaimed wood tables and a dozen different-sized candles filling the white-washed brick fireplace. It’s clean and simple but warm, the kind of place you’d look forward to coming back to every day.

“I’m going to hang up those boards.” Lainey gestures to three square planks, with ornamental arrows burned black into the wood. “I just want to make sure this stud-finder works.”

“If you’re looking for a stud,” I wink, “I’m standing right in front of you.”

“Ha-ha. I’ll keep that in mind.”

She turns back to the wall, reaching up over her head and stretching onto her tippy toes on the narrow step. I move under the ladder to catch her if she goes ass over end, and a stab of terror slices through me at the thought that Lainey would still be doing this if I wasn’t here. Alone. Without Jason even in the room in case something went terribly wrong.

What the hell is up with that?

“I read that you’re not supposed to reach above your head when you’re pregnant.”

“That’s just an old wives’ tale.”

I wrap my hands around her hips, holding her steady.

“Maybe the old wives knew what they were talking about. Come on, come down.”

Slowly, Lainey lowers her arms and turns in my hands. I lift her off the ladder by her hips, tilting my head back and holding her above me for a moment, before sliding her slowly down. And the feel of her softness rubbing against me, the friction—it’s fantastic.

When her feet are on the ground, I dip my head and our faces are just millimeters apart. Close enough to count the sprinkle of cute, light freckles that dust the bridge of her nose.

“That’s better,” I say softly, taking the stud-finder out of her hands. “I’ll do it.”

“Okay.” Lainey’s tongue peeks out, wetting her bottom lip. “Thanks.”

Like I said . . . fucking killing me.

Michel’s Review

Emma Chase has finally brought her readers back to Lakeside, NJ for another small town/ adult high school adventure.  This time around it’s the assistant coach, AP Math teacher, and drummer rock god, Dean Walker is on the playlist.

Lainey Burrows, single mother and popular blogger is out celebrating her success when she meets the sexy drummer from the band Amber Sound.  Being a single mother and sole provider doesn’t leave much time for dating or sex.  A one night stand is just what she needs to make her celebration complete.  He’s not from this area and she’s moving within weeks. She will never have to see him again. Her wild night can be her secret.

Lainey has signed on for a one year blogging show on FB. She will be re-furbishing and redecorating an old lake house in Lakeside, NJ. The small town area is perfect for her do-it-yourself projects and lifestyle tips.  It’s also an opportunity for her brilliant nerdy teenage son to have a new start and maybe make new friends. He has spent his life with his nose buried in books and focused on school. She’s hoping he’ll find friends and a social life in this new place.  Moving day is perfect until she realizes she’s pregnant. Suddenly she’s got a new life project in her new adventure.

Her son is adjusting well to Lakeside. He loves his AP Math teacher, the mathletes club, and his new friends. When she goes for her first parent teacher conference she’s in for a big surprise. Her sexy drummer boy / baby daddy is none other than Coach Walker, mathematical genius and town player.

Dean was the known player in Lakeside and now it’s his turn to fall. Between the Dork-Squad, the Gray Army, Lucy- the delightful kitty, a “haunted” lake house, ex girlfriends & hookups, and four snarky sisters… Dean just might make the cut. He has to prove he’s finally ready for the new game known as fatherhood. Ohhh… the mighty fall hard… and we readers get to experience this sexy genius drummer/ teacher become a clueless fool when faced with love.  But when the mighty fall it is perfection on every level.

The one thing a reader can expect when opening an Emma Chase novel is pure, delightful, fun, light-hearted entertainment. Falling head over heels in love with these lovable clueless characters and experiencing a beautiful love story is reading perfection.

I absolutely loved Getting Played by Emma Chase.

Michel’s Review
Single In Sitka by Katy Regnery was the perfect modern day romance that most readers can relate to. A single father of three children and a single woman with a successful career whose biological clock is ticking. It’s the story of real life where car accidents change lives, settling for someone because it’s easy is the norm, being afraid to start over where the rules have changed in the dating world, and trying to fit in an already made family where parenting is a new concept are very real realities in today’s world.
*
Luke Kingston lost his wife and mother of his children in a car accident two years ago. As a single father of three children he has had to primarily focus on his family. Daily routines change as the children grow and their maturity levels evolve with puberty. While they all have learned to adjust to the changes in life the one thing they have not experienced is someone new coming into their lives.  Luke is ready to enter the dating world but he’s not sure how to or how much of himself he wants to give. He’s old fashion and doesn’t believe in Tinder or swipe dating apps. When his sister places an ad in the dating personal ads of a popular area magazine, Luke is mortified until he meets his potential date. She’s a beautiful and genuinely nice woman who is in the same position he is. They both need a Rebound date to help get them back in the saddle again. She’s only in Sitka for a few weeks. It should be easy. What he didn’t count on was falling for the sexy reporter and wanting more than a mutually satisfying hookup.
*
Amanda McKendrick spent five years with Mr. Wrong. When he cheated on her and left because he just wasn’t “feeling it anymore”, her eyes were opened. She began to re-evaluate what she wanted in life while realizing her biological clock is ticking much faster.  Needing to get away from Seattle, she proposes a storyline about the Bear Attacks in Sitka and how their environment is being affected. The paper proposes to do a fund raiser to help the Bear Refuge .  She decides to take a chance at re-entering the dating world while she is in Sitka where nobody knows her. What happens in Sitka can stay in Sitka.  When she responds to Luke’s ad the rules of the dating game are thrown completely out the window. She is falling hopelessly in love with Luke and his kids. The only problem is their lives are in two completely different worlds and there are three other people involved in decision making.
*
I absolutely loved Single In Sitka by Katy Regnery because it was a contemporary romance that today’s readers can relate to. Katy has a way of making any kind of romance fun, charming, and emotional. She has a talent of creating characters who are perfectly ordinary people with their own personal strengths and flaws. This is what makes their story extraordinary.
*
I highly recommend Single In Sitka by Katy Regnery.

New Release + Release Blitz + 5 Star Review: Down Too Deep by J. Daniels

 

Two single
parents and three adorable kids are about to have a summer they’ll never forget
in this sexy, heartwarming new novel of the New York Times bestselling
series.

 

Following the sudden death of his wife, Nathan Bell spent
nearly two years burying himself in work and neglecting his biggest
responsibility: his daughter. Overcome with guilt, he wants to connect with
little Marley, but he doesn’t know how to do it alone. And then Jenna Savage
throws him a lifeline.

 

 

A single mom of twins, Jenna is more than capable of taking
care of Nathan’s adorable two-year-old and wants to help Nathan however she
can. As the days go by and her attraction to Nathan grows, she can’t help
wondering what might happen if they became a family for real. And the closer
everyone becomes, the more right it feels.



Falling in love forces Nathan to face his biggest fear, and
when hearts — both big and little — are on the line, the only thing scarier
than needing Jenna and her kids so much is losing them all.

Tracey’s Review

Oh, my gosh, I freaking loved this book! I forget sometimes how J. Daniels absolutely sucks me right the heck in with her books, and, man, I was ALL in for Jenna’s and Nathan’s story. I mean, everything, just EVERYTHING, about this book. I see a book hangover in my future…

It’s hard not to sound repetitive, but, man, I am SO in love with Nathan Bell. My heart just hurt for this man that was so mired in his own grief that he had never been able to look beyond it to connect with his daughter, Marley. When Jenna Savage shows up, she is just the lifeline he’s been missing. Jenna hasn’t had it particularly easy herself, but the circle that she casts is pure light, and Marley and Nathan can’t help but be drawn into it. It’s not long before these two are changing each other in all the best ways.

J. Daniels always writes the perfect mix of angst, steam, and pure unadulterated love, and DOWN TOO DEEP showcases this very well. I was drawn into the story, into the family and friend circle, into the intensity, from the very start, and I did not want to stop reading until the very end. This is what makes a book a 5 star read for me, and DOWN TOO DEEP is not only that, but one of my favorite books of this year.

Nate, Jenna, and their beautiful family will stay with me for a very long time, and I can’t wait to go back and catch up with the earlier books. DOWN TOO DEEP is one for the TBR, reader friends, and I guarantee, it will not disappoint. Make sure to get this one, and enjoy. ❤️

Blurb:

Cleaning up after playboy Paxton deBraun is a full time job.

His family is worth billions. They are the elite. They influence politicians. They’re the power behind the power. Paxton is their golden child, wealthy in his own right, a rising star in Washington DC’s political scene…a 21st century Jay Gatsby, prone to throwing lavish, expensive, wild, and destructive parties.

I’m a housekeeper at a hotel owned by his mother, Camilla deBraun, and I’m sent in to clean up after such a party.

What I wasn’t expecting was to find Paxton naked in his bed, passed out and breathtaking even hungover.

Even more unexpected is the proposal bombshell he drops on me: Marry him.

A man I met once, a golden god, richer than belief, gorgeous beyond comprehension, and arrogant beyond fathom.

Me, a hotel maid working three jobs to make ends meet…Marry him.

It’s supposed to be fake, more of a business agreement than marriage proposal.

Only…it turns out there’s more to this sexy billionaire than meets the eye.

5Star
Michel’s Review
***
     Married In Michigan by Jasinda Wilder is like a modern day fairytale with a real dose of reality that most readers can relate to.  It also reminds me of the world’s favorite royal couple- Prince Harry and Princess Meghan.
*
     Paxton deBraun is one of the most eligible bachelors in the US. He is known for his wild parties, philandering ways, and high profile antics. Although he is from an influential family, he relies on his own intelligence and business endeavors in his career. He is one of the youngest congressmen in the House of Representatives and has aspirations for a long political career. He needs to clean up his act to prove he has more brains than financial clout. He needs to prove he is more than qualified in his elected position. His controlling mother has issued an ultimatum, he must marry within three months or lose the family financial backing and political connections.  Although he can thrive on his own financially he also sees the need to clean up his reputation. His only concession is that he picks his own bride rather than her finding one that has the right credentials.
*
     Paxton chooses the maid from his mother’s exclusive hotel to become his bride. It will send his mother through the roof knowing he is marrying a bi-racial maid who is from the other side of the tracks. Paxton sees more than a beautiful woman from the wrong side of the tracks, he sees her integrity, intelligence, and diligence. Everything needed to be the perfect politician wife. He can offer her the world but she just wants a reprieve from her stressful life.
*
     Paxton and Makayla find more than a beneficial business relationship. They find a beautiful friendship filled with respect and support. They also find themselves falling head over heels in love.
*
     Married In Michigan by Jasinda Wilder is my favorite in the 50 States of Love series. I loved the cheesy fairytale/ billionaire romance along with doses of reality in today’s modern world. I loved how this book was a slow build up through dialogue, clever banter, and world building rather than fueled by the red hot sex scenes as a way of  propelling the romance.
*
     I highly recommend Married In Michigan by Jasinda Wilder. It was a pure reading delight.

Michel’s Review

It’s always a delight to read anything written by Kylie Scott. It is an extra bonus when her latest novella is set in the Stage Dive world and we get to re-visit some of our favorite rockers and yes that includes the one of a kind percussionists that doles out dating advice while parenting his puppy. Alas, the Stage Dive members are not the stars of this novella but one of their security team agents, Ziggy Thayer, has been hired to protect their neighbor, plus size super- model Mae Cooper. While Ziggy is all kinds of hot and can rock a suit, he is also good at his job. He’s her to protect Mae.

Mae has a stalker who has been sending bloody gifts that are raising all kinds of warning flags. The stalker has escalated from threatening letters to threatening gifts. Ziggy believes this is only the beginning and wants to find the person behind the threats. Although He loves protecting Mae but would rather put his hands on her a different way. She has won his heart with her down to earth personality and great sense of humor. Why anyone would want to hurt this beautiful soul is beyond him but he knows there are all kinds of crazies in the world. It’s his job to neutralize the crazy.

Mae and Ziggy are dancing around what they really want to do with each other. When the threat is finally eliminated… watch out because these two are going to bring down the house.

Once again Kylie Scott wrote a delightful novella and created fun-loving, likable characters that make the Stage Dive world even more delightful. She added her special blend of snarky humor and sarcasm while also maintaining a sexy romance. I loved it!

Closer is a fun, fast paced novella that will keep the reader fully engaged and entertained.

Tracey’s Review

Well, reader friends, I can say without reservation that Meghan March knows how to keep us invested. WHITE KNIGHT starts off with a bang, jumping right back into the thick of the action that was coming from every direction at the end of BLACK SHEEP. Man, this is mafia romance at its best, with twists, turns, and revelations enough to keep me guessing right up until the very end.

At the heart of it, WHITE KNIGHT is a love story, on more than one level. Romantic love, familial love, the bonds of friendship, they’re all here, and I fell more in love with Cannon, Drew, and all the rest of the far-flung members of their clan. And, at the end of it, Meghan’s done her usual wonderful job of bringing all the pieces together to give a story that I’ll remember for a long while to come.

As this is a duet, it is an absolute must to read BLACK SHEEP first, because you will be lost if you try to jump right in to this book. And, the truth is, you don’t want to miss one juicy detail, one action-packed minute, of the entire story, believe me. These Cassos are one complex bunch, and the surprises keep coming, one right after the other.

As if all of this wasn’t enough, we get the first look at Gabriel Legend, too, so, y’all, don’t be dawdling, make this duet a part of your must-be-read piles. You’ll be glad that you did. ❤️

Excerpt:

I’d had bodyguards before. But only for events like fashion week or a big shoot. Just for a limited amount of time. My contract with Ziggy, however, was open ended, dependent on the heart in the box situation. Once he’d grilled me about what the police were doing (investigating my entire life), my routine (I don’t really have one. It’s consumed by work), and my calendar for the next few days (I’d freed up time to finish unpacking and then back to work on my lingerie line), he drove me to the gym. There was one I used a couple of times in the apartment building, but I generally do better with some active encouragement and guidance.

Guess Ziggy approved of my Land Rover because he gave it another one of those almost-smiles. I, however, continued to receive the full professional cold front face. This was definitely going to take some getting used to.

“Who’s your shadow?” asked Kwana, my awesome trainer.

I paused mid-lunge, my breath coming hard and fast. “My bodyguard, Ziggy. You like him?”

“He’s pretty. Don’t stop, keep moving.”

“Yeah, yeah.”

“You don’t usually have one of them around. Have you been getting hassled or something?”

Kwana stood with her arms crossed, all lean muscles beneath brown skin. Since we were in an open area at the end of the main part of the gym, Ziggy waited over by the wall, just out of earshot. He stood with his arms loose at his side, his gaze constantly wandering a circuit from me—around the room, over to the exits, and back again. Always on alert.

“More a precaution than anything,” I said.

No matter how much I liked Kwana, no one outside my inner circle needed to know about the incident. The fewer people who found out about the gross cow heart and knife the better.

There’d been no further news from the police. Though it was never likely they’d track down a suspect and charge that person the next day.

Case closed, hooray!

Michel’s Review

It’s always a delight to read anything written by Kylie Scott. It is an extra bonus when her latest novella is set in the Stage Dive world and we get to re-visit some of our favorite rockers and yes that  includes the one of a kind percussionists that doles out dating advice while parenting his puppy. Alas, the Stage Dive members are not the stars of this novella but one of their security team agents, Ziggy Thayer, has been hired to protect their neighbor, plus size super- model Mae Cooper.  While Ziggy is all kinds of hot and can rock a suit, he is also good at his job. He’s her to protect Mae.

Mae has a stalker who has been sending bloody gifts that are raising all kinds of warning flags. The stalker has escalated from threatening letters to threatening gifts. Ziggy believes this is only the beginning and wants to find the person behind the threats. Although He loves protecting Mae but would rather put his hands on her a different way. She has won his heart with her down to earth personality and great sense of humor. Why anyone would want to hurt this beautiful soul is beyond him but he knows there are all kinds of crazies in the world. It’s his job to neutralize the crazy.

Mae and Ziggy are dancing around what they really want to do with each other. When the threat is finally eliminated… watch out because these two are going to bring down the house.

Once again Kylie Scott wrote a delightful novella and created fun-loving, likable characters that make the Stage Dive world even more delightful. She added her special blend of snarky humor and sarcasm while also maintaining a sexy romance. I loved it!

Closer is a fun, fast paced novella that will keep the reader fully engaged and entertained.
