Blurb:
Lights. Camera. Action
I’ve got everything it takes to make it in Tinseltown: confidence, charisma, and a killer chin. Now all I need is a chance.
But Los Angeles is full of hot, young hunks, and talent might not be enough to separate me from the cookie-cutter crowd.
Well, you know what they say: fake it till you make it.
So I devise a wild scheme to get noticed. Pretend I’m someone I’m not—goodbye Will O’Connell of Cincinnati and hello Liam O’Connell of Dublin.
‘Liam’ and his talent with accents is enough to get myfoot in the door, but I never anticipated meeting the woman who has me more worried about keeping my foot out of my mouth.
Enter Raven Locke, the dark-haired bombshell who puts the ‘tude in tattooed.
On set, she’s the costumer tasked with fitting my pants, but all I can think about is how to get into hers.
As my — I mean, Liam’s — budding career begins to heat up, so do our feelings.
While Raven pursues her passion for fashion; I chase her heart.
Our picture-perfect screenplay seems sure to send us riding off onto Sunset Boulevard… Until Raven finds out that Comedy and Tragedy aren’t the only masks I’m wearing. Our romance might be destined for the cutting room floor, unless I can salvage our story with a plot twist she won’t see coming.

*This first-person, male-POV rom-com has it all: lots of heat, plenty of heart, and a Hollywood-worthy HEA.

Tracey’s Review

If you’re a fan of romance audio, there is no way that you are not familiar with the dulcet tones of narrator extraordinaire, Joe Arden. But he didn’t stop there, because Joe can now add romance author to his resumé, and proudly. THE CHAMELEON EFFECT is Joe’s first solo project, and it just goes to show that the man with the golden voice is a man of many talents.

I’m all for a story that’s got a secret anything going on, and THE CHAMELEON EFFECT has a whopper. Shenanigans aside, though (and there were plenty!), the thing that I liked the most is that this story is written, in large part, from Liam’s point of view, and that’s a rare thing in Romance Land. It made for a very different experience, and really helped make this story stand out.

Liam and Raven have great chemistry right from the get-go, and I love that she’s such a kick-butt chick, one that I would totally want to hang out with. The way that Liam relates to not just Raven, but to his family, especially his niece, Lexi, and his best friend Devontay makes Liam more even more likable, and were some of my favorite scenes in the book.

THE CHAMELEON EFFECT is a win for me, and I hope that Joe’s got more books coming our way. In the meantime, I cannot wait to get this story in my ears, because Joe’s voice was narrating in my head the entire time I was reading, and that, my friends, is a very good thing. Happy reading (and listening!). ❤️

When knowledge and temptation collide, the fall only needs a forbidden fruit.

Skilled forensics scientist Schuyler Liu never expected her job working for a ghost-hunting show to bring so much peace. Until a grand locale in the Garden District uncovers way more than just rattling pipes and drafty entryways, and she walks away with more than she ever imagined. When chaos morphs to terror, she turns to the one man she knows may be able to help her. They may not see eye-to-eye, given their vastly differing beliefs, but Pax is her touchstone in the maelstrom, and she plans to grab hold with both hands until they find the answers they seek.
 
Excommunicated priest Paxton “Padre” Chase has felt a pull to the beautiful skeptic since she joined the Haunted New Orleans team. When a sinister presence from a routine investigation follows her home, and the oppression becomes real, Pax vows that he will do everything in his power to help her. But while digging into the house’s history to unlock the mysteries of the spirits wreaking havoc, he uncovers more than he ever bargained for. He and Sky have more in common than they ever knew, and the dark forces want to sever those ties—permanently.

New Release + Release Blitz: Wicked As Seduction by Shayla Black

Wicked as Seduction by Shayla Black is now live!

He’ll protect her…even if he has to take her captive to save her.

Tech wiz and former elite soldier Forest “Trees” Scott had one mission: Rescue the woman being hunted by a vicious cartel and get her to safety. It should have been simple…but the minute he sees the wary beauty with haunted eyes, his desire for her complicates everything. So does her stubborn refusal to trust him. When Trees is forced to abduct her, she vows to hate him–even as he finds himself falling in love…

For six years, Laila Torres has known nothing but brutality at the hands of men, so when the massive stranger with the forbidding mien kidnaps her, she’s frightened–and furious. But the giant’s protective care shocks her. With every word, he proves steadfast. With every forbidden touch, he awakens the woman in her. Soon, she’s facing the terrifying realization that he’s also dangerously close to capturing her heart.

But their ruthless enemies are closing in, threatening everything Laila holds dear. When she’s forced to make an unthinkable sacrifice, will she trust Trees and their love to save her?

Tracey’s Reviews

It’s been a minute since I’ve read a book by Shayla Black, but I jumped right in to WICKED AS SEDUCTION: TREES & LAILA PART 1 without realizing that theirs is a story that has been building as part of the backstory in prior books in the Wicked & Devoted series. Even so, I had no trouble reading this solely as the first part of their complicated, steamy, thrill-packed story, and can’t wait to see what’s next.

It was nice to see such a spitfire of a heroine in Laila, one that kept Trees on his toes and then some. I’m really hoping that Part Two of their story continues in the same vein, because it really did add something. I mean, it’s nice to have a (sometimes) gentle giant around to save the day, but where’s the fun if there’s no spark?

If romantic suspense with an, ahem, dominant side is your bag, this is definitely the book for you. I would suggest starting with the first books and working your way through, but, as said, if you just want Laila and Trees, this book can be read as a standalone, and as the first part of a two-book package. Shayla seals the deal with a cliffy that will definitely have you (and me!) coming back for more, and Part 2 can’t get here quickly enough. ❤️

Tracey’s Review
Winter Stevens never thought that she’d be raising her best friend’s daughter with no help from the father that left her friend when she needed him most. Harry Stone, sports legend, veteran, philanthropist, and, oh yes, player extraordinaire. Winter hates the very mention of his name, and when Harry comes back into the picture, she’s sure that he’s up to no good. But people aren’t always what they seem…

It’s always nice to return to a book world that I’ve enjoyed in the past. As a very happy fan of both the Cocky Hero world created by authors Vi Keeland and Penelope Ward, and the books of Brenda Rothert, it was a pleasure to read POMPOUS PLAYER, Brenda’s contribution to the Cocky Hero Club.

Harry Stone may be one of my favorite of Brenda’s hockey men. Not only has he been a member of the Chicago Blaze hockey team, he’s also served his country, and gone on to continue to help others. Pretty much the whole package, unless you’re Winter Stevens, and you’re convinced that he’s the most selfish jerk you’ve ever met. But the Harry that Winter meets isn’t quite what she was expecting, and it’s not long before she’s having to take a good long look at the man that he actually is now.

Brenda works her usual magic here, crafting a story that takes two very different people and brings them together. Winter and Harry are more than they appear to be, and, once they start working as a team, there’s no stopping them and their feelings.

POMPOUS PLAYER is a nice addition to both the Cocky Hero world and the world of the Chicago Blaze. Sparks, sass, cooperation, and, finally, love, are all on the menu in this book, and Brenda brings it all together to give us an ultimately heartwarming and feel-good read with some spice for the win. A very enjoyable read, and one that I’m happy to recommend. ❤️

New Release + Release Blitz: Headhunter by Kristen Proby

 

Headhunter: A With Me in Seattle Mafia Novel by Kristen Proby is now live!

 

Things have never been more intense in New York Times Bestselling Author Kristen Proby’s With Me in Seattle Mafia series…

As the son of one of the States’ most prominent mob bosses, Shane Martinelli’s always been immersed in society’s shady underbelly. Learning to navigate it and keep to the edges was working just fine until an acquaintance turns up missing, and he fears the worst. From the moment he laid eyes on her, he hasn’t stopped thinking about her. Luckily, as an ex-special operative, he’s uniquely qualified to track her down and keep her safe. Unfortunately, nobody’s making that easy–not the people who took her nor the woman herself.

Ivie Jordan has led a pretty uneventful life, and that’s just how she likes it. Especially since she’ll be the first to admit that she doesn’t do so well in social situations. She’s a proud business owner, and while she doesn’t have family, she does have a network of people who look out for her. Little did she know that being accepted into that fold came with a laundry list of issues. When the worst happens, and she’s forced to rely on the ruggedly handsome alpha hero who comes to her rescue, she discovers her inner badass–and the sultry vixen on her other shoulder.

Too bad the two of them are literally running for their lives and trying to ensure the safety of those they love. There is way more at stake than meets the eye.

It’s time for the hunted to become the hunters.

New Release + Release Blitz + 4 Star Review: Wild Beauty by Audrey Carlan

“Audrey Carlan has a way with words that cannot be denied.” –Kylie Scott, New York Times bestselling author

Wild Beauty, an all-new beautifully written contemporary romance in the Soul Sisters series of standalones by #1 New York Times bestselling author Audrey Carlan is available now!

My life has never been easy. Not from the day I took my first breath until now. Only days old, I was placed in a laundry basket and left in front of a firehouse. I never knew who my parents were before being shuffled around from one bad foster home to another. Until the day I arrived at Kerrighan House.

My safe haven.

My home.

I was welcomed with open arms into a world where love and sisterhood were the rule, not the exception. From that moment on, I believed I was safe. That nothing bad could touch me.

I was so wrong.

Neither my success as a full-figured lingerie and fashion model nor my street smarts as a born and bred Chicago native, safeguarded me against walking into the clutches of a monster.

As I try to pull my life back together, I’m brought face to face with a man whose wounds mirror my own. Under his protection, I’m gifted the opportunity to find beauty where there has only ever been pain. And yet, danger lurks, as a new evil threatens to bring me to my knees.

Can my savior protect me, or has my fate been sealed?

Note: Each book in the Soul Sister series can be read as a standalone.

Tracey’s Review

Although Addison Michaels-Kerrighan and her family have been through utter hell, she’s back and ready to get on with her life, with the help of her loving foster family. But when it appears that the madman that terrorized her and two of her sisters isn’t finished with them, she’s going to need the love and support of her loved ones more than ever.

Whoo, y’all, this family. I tell you, they have been put through the wringer, and that’s the truth. After the sweet but angsty start to the Soul Sister series in WILD CHILD, author Audrey Carlan keeps bringing the suspense, the sizzle, and the action in WILD BEAUTY, the second book in the series.

Audrey has done a great job of world building with these books, giving her characters diverse and definitive personalities that come together to make the best kind of family, the one that is created not necessarily by blood, but by choice. The action and suspense are off the charts, and kept me guessing what was coming next, and although I am not typically a fan of insta-love, the romance piece is done quite nicely, and I am totally here for it.

The next sister to get her story is pepper pot Liliana, with WILD SPIRIT, and I can only imagine that the sass will be strong with that one, and I cannot wait. In the meantime, if romantic suspense is your jam (and even if it isn’t, because these books are absolutely readable page-turners), you must dig in and meet this WILD BEAUTY. ❤️

New Release + Release Blitz + 4 Star Review: Bet the Farm by Staci Hart

Bet the Farm is LIVE and available from your favorite online book retailer! This heartfelt, flirty story of opposites attract from Staci Hart is just what you need. Happy reading! 💕

Amazon | Apple Books | Kobo | B&N | Goodreads

Olivia Brent has one summer to save the dairy farm she just inherited.

But there’s one problem, and it’s not her lactose intolerance.

Jake Milovic.

The brooding farmhand has inherited exactly fifty percent of Brent Farm, and he’s so convinced the city girl can’t work the land, he bets she can’t save it in a summer. 

Determined to prove him wrong, Olivia accepts what might be the dumbest wager of her life.

His strategy to win seems simple: follow her around, shirtlessly distracting her between bouts of relentless taunting. And it’s effective—if his dark eyes and rare smiles aren’t enough to sidetrack her, the sweaty, rolling topography of the manbeast’s body would do the trick.

What they don’t know: they’ll have to weather more than each other. 

Mysterious circumstances throw the farm into disarray, and with the dairy farm in danger, Olivia and Jake have to work together. But when they do, there’s more to fear than either of them imagined.

Because now their hearts are on the line, and the farm won’t be the only casualty if they fail.

 

Tracey’s Review

Okay, a lactose intolerant girl inherits half a dairy farm…it’s only going to get better after such a great beginning. Per usual, Staci Hart writes with plenty of soul, infusing BET THE FARM with wit, whimsy, and all of the feels, and I just loved it.

Staci has plenty of tropes going with BET THE FARM…small town romance, opposites attract, resisting the attraction, city girl versus country boy, and they all meld together perfectly in this romantic comedy that had me from the very beginning. Even though Jake and Livi were fighting the very obvious pull between them, I couldn’t wait for them to get it together and, well, get together.

BET THE FARM couldn’t have come at a better time. This is the kind of book that just hits all of the marks, and is a pure pleasure to read. Book slump? Read this book. Need a book to lift you out of the winter doldrums? Read this book. Just love a good rom-com that will deliver all of the ‘com,’ but with plenty of emotion? Read this book. And when you do read it? Enjoy. ❤️

 

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. When she’s not writing, she’s reading, sleeping, gaming, or designing graphics.

New Release + Release Blitz: Call You Mine by Claudia Burgoa

He’s doing everything to convince me that I don’t need a man. After all, I have him.

Call You Mine by Claudia Burgoa is now live!

A fun, sexy, charming, friends-to-lovers romance by USA TODAY Bestselling author Claudia Burgoa

I’ve been best friends with Beacon since we were kids. We shared everything, even our first kiss.

Now that we’re adults, Beacon’s been cockblocking me on my quest to find Mr. Right. No matter how hard I try to find love, he’s always getting in the way.

My shy, awkward exterior doesn’t help. After all, Beacon’s the cool one, not me–I play the cello at Carnegie Hall, and he’s a heartthrob.

The famous frontman of the band Too Far From Grace. Every woman wants him, every guy…either wants to be like him or wants him too.

I decide to play devil’s advocate, and hire Beacon to teach me the dating ropes. Maybe if we work together, we can find me a guy we both approve of.

Except, moving to Baker’s Creek to work on this experiment isn’t working the way I planned. Seems like he’s doing everything to convince me that I don’t need a man. After all, I have him.

The Baker’s Creek Billionaire Brothers series is a romantic comedy saga packed with the perfect mix of angst, tears, and laughs. If you like strong heroines & alpha males, steamy romances, and witty love stories, this series is for you!

Tracey’s Reviews

All right, so straight talk. I’ve only ever read one other book by Claudia Burgoa, and it wasn’t in the Baker’s Creek Billionaire Brothers series. So, I was feeling more than a little bit lost as I got into Beacon’s and Grace’s story in CALL YOU MINE. There is a lot going on here, and some of it seemed to come out of, well, nowhere. BUT…The more I read, the more I loved the zany and very different members of Beac’s family, and the more I loved Beac and Grace, both separately and together.

These two are absolutely and unequivocally two sides of the same coin. I mean, there is no Beacon without Grace, and vice versa, not really. Their hearts beat for each other, and that’s the truth of it. And thank goodness, because they each need the love that they share to make it through some very iffy moments, but that’s all that I’ll say about that, because, spoilers.

Suffice to say that I didn’t quite know where I’d landed when I started reading this book, but I was absolutely and utterly enchanted by the end. I do feel like I need to go back and read the preceding books, both for clarity and for enjoyment, and I strongly suggest that you do, as well. Read them in order, I mean. Because CALL YOU MINE is a treasure, and I think that romance lovers will fall in love like I did, but some background is a good thing. So, go, go forth and meet these brothers, and enjoy. ❤️

New Release + Blog Tour + Excerpt + 4 Star Review: Wild Child by Audrey Carlan

Wild Child, an all-new must-read romance that with off the walls chemistry and heart from #1 New York Times bestselling author Audrey Carlan is available now!

Twice my life changed in a single day.

The first was when I lost my parents. Hand in hand I walked with my big sister up the steps of Kerrighan House, a foster home for girls. We were lucky to be met with open arms and a house filled with children just like us. Children who’d lost everything. From that day forward, we were raised as one big family. Our bonds of sisterhood were strengthened through shared experience, pain, sacrifice, and love. Sisters not by blood, but by choice.

Soul sisters.

The second day my life changed was on the worst day of my adult life. My boyfriend broke up with me via text. My sleazy boss hit on me, forcing me to quit a job I desperately needed. And the cherry on top, was getting pulled over by an FBI Agent. Little did I know, he’d also save my life that night.

From the moment we met, Agent Fontaine wouldn’t dare let me out of his sight. And between his alpha ways, kind brown eyes, and heroism, I was lost to the man who hid behind his job. But this agent had a rule: never fall for a woman you’ve saved.

Yet I wasn’t just any woman. I was known among my sisters for taking risks and dreaming big. I was the wild child of the group. We were raised to appreciate every day as the gift it was, and not let anything stand in our way. The more I got to know the brooding, serious FBI man, the more I realized maybe it was my duty to save him.

Excerpt:

“Are you arresting me?” A deluge of tears fell down my cheeks as my chest constricted and my stomach plummeted.

“Ma’am just follow me. Closer.” He waved his non-gun-toting hand as he walked backward.

“I don’t understand. This is so crazy. I didn’t do anything wrong. I swear! It’s my car and I don’t have drugs. You can check it.”

“And I will, when you’re safely sitting in my car.”

“Oh my God! You’re arresting me!”

That’s when I lost it.

I punched my hands into my hair, tugging on the long, beachy golden waves until they were hanging off my now heated neck.

“This is unbelievable! The absolute worst day of my entire life. And my parents died in a fire! At the same time! And I had to go to foster care with my sister. And this day, oh my God. Sonia! My sister…no, Officer, you cannot arrest me. You do not understand what this will do to my sister. She’s the…”

“Ma’am! Get over here now!”  The officer grated through a super scary rumble pushing me into immediate action.

When I got closer, he latched onto my wrist and tugged me close to his body. My chest slammed against his and I placed my hands to his muscular biceps. I stared up into the darkest set of eyes I’d ever seen. Like a black cup of coffee, yet with little golden-brown flecks at the center. His skin was an olive tone, his jaw cut square, framed by cheekbones that were sharp slashes as though chiseled into fine marble. He had dark brown hair that was longer on top and shorter at the sides. If I had to guess, I’d put him in the dark Italian stallion category or Greek god.

He was beautiful.

One of his hands moved to my waist where he squeezed, and he dipped his head so close to my ear I could feel his warm breath against my cheek. “We received a report that someone crawled into the back of a blonde woman’s red old-model four-door Honda Civic at a gas station. First two letters of the license plate are A2.”

“W-what?”

“I need to check your car. Fast. If it’s not you, another woman could get hurt.”

“Oh my god! I did get gas.” I held onto his biceps so hard I may have left nail imprints.

“It’s okay, you’re safe now,” he murmured, and I closed my eyes, taking in his woodsy and fresh linens scent. It helped calm me instantly.

Until we both heard the familiar metal creaking sound against the quiet of the cool night.

I whirled around and saw a thin, tall man standing next to my car, a full ski mask covering most of his face aside from cutouts around the eyes and mouth.

Before I could do or say anything, I was grabbed around the waist and spun behind the cop as the guy in a mask lifted his arm, pointed a gun, and fired off two shots.

 

Tracey’s Review

I’m not typically a cover person in that I hardly ever choose my reads based on what’s on the front of a book. Something, though, about the cover for WILD CHILD by Audrey Carlan just called to me, and I found myself signing up to read a book that I thought might not actually resonate with me. I’m happy to say that this is not the case.

From the cover and the description of the book, I thought that Simone might be too young, too flighty, too, well, too flaky, frankly, to keep my interest. As a woman of a certain age, the New Adult sub-genre doesn’t always work for me. But what I found was a smart, quirky, wide open young woman, one that is pretty near impossible to dislike. What you see is what you get with Simone, which is true of the whole gaggle of sisters that Mama Kerri raised. She speaks her mind, she goes after what she wants, she just generally embraces life, with all of its ups and downs, with arms wide open. I am convinced that FBI Agent Jonah Fontaine had absolutely no clue what he was in for when he and Simone met. And, try as he might, there’s just no resisting her, because the chemistry here is blazing.

Laughter, heartbreak, suspense, passion, and an abundance of love make up the landscape of WILD CHILD. These characters have by no means had an easy time of things, and there is plenty of action keeping things bumping right along, and all of this together make this one book that I’m really glad that I took a chance on. Audrey Carlan has done such a great job with this book that I can’t wait for the rest of the sisters (did I mention that there are lots of them?) to get their stories, too. Grab this one and enjoy. ❤️
