Anger. Bitterness. Two words that should never destroy a marriage. Especially when love is forever present, strong and passionate. Yet, Dr. Alyssa Combs did exactly that. She ended her marriage to Callum Cooper out of spite, out of hurt.
Nearly two years later and Alyssa is in the exact same place. She still desperately wants Callum back. Except now, she has the job she thought he denied her.

Callum Cooper fought desperately to save his marriage, for his wife. It was all for nothing, however. Alyssa left him anyway and blamed him for the job she lost. Now, injured and under her care and dependent on her hospitality, Callum will do anything to strengthen his resolve and force himself, his heart to get over her. He is determined that the time spent with Alyssa will make him immune to her charms… and her body.

Can they overcome their anger, their hurt and get the fresh start that they deserve?





He unlocked the front door and keyed in the security code. She stepped in and he closed the door, locking it and setting the night time alarm. They were in for the night, and they would not be disturbed.
He dragged his gaze up her body. The heels of those skin colored sandals accentuated her calves perfectly. The hem of her dress ended midway up her thigh, leaving just enough to the imagination. He didn’t need to use his imagination, he knew every glorious inch of her body. The soft fabric skimmed over her hips and dipped in slightly at the waist before framing her breasts. Her bare skin at the top almost glowed and he couldn’t wait to lay his lips on that sensitive spot between her shoulder and her neck. His gaze reached her eyes. Heat flared in them.  He lead her to sit on the couch. “Wait here.”
He walked to the guest bedroom and dug in the overnight bag Adam had packed for him. Right at the bottom he found what he was looking for. He walked back to the living room, placing the box of condoms on the table in front of her. She looked up at him, cocking her brow at him. “Is this show and tell?”
“Now’s not the time, Lys.” He barely recognized the raw-edged voice leaving his mouth. He pulled her off the couch. “We can either turn in for the night. Or you could take that dress off. Either way, we can discuss the things you’re keeping from me in the morning.”
She stepped up to him and turned, her breathing laboured. “I’m going to need you to help me unzip this dress.”

“Oh. And what are the duties of the perfect hostess?” The question may have seemed innocent but the twinkle in his eyes was anything but. He was wearing dark slacks and a black short sleeved button down with the top button undone. The heavy boots he wore to protect his foot only added to the appeal.
“Make sure everyone is comfortable and having a good time. Dance with the guests. That kind of thing.”
His smile faltered for a moment. “I keep forgetting I cannot tell you what to do.”
She took a step toward him. “What would you tell me?”
“No dancing with other men.” The words came out on a growl.
He had no such restrictions when they were married. “Wow. Possessive much?”
“Well with my foot still strapped, dancing with you would be difficult. I wouldn’t want other men giving you what I can’t.” He winked at her and pocketed his wallet.
“That’s a rather caveman attitude.”
“Looking the way you do, if you were mine, caveman would be an understatement.” His phone pinged and he checked it. “Our Uber is here.”
Her curiosity was piqued, who cared if the driver had to wait. She took another step toward him. “Oh really? What else?”
Callum narrowed his eyes, seeming to consider the question. Would he answer her? Then he started advancing to her. “I’d want everyone to know you’re with me. I wouldn’t have more than one or two drinks so I could be alert enough to keep you safe. I wouldn’t want you to drink too much, either. Not to curb your fun. But to make sure you know and feel everything I intend doing to you at the end of the night. If I’m honest, I’d want to mark you. And you definitely won’t be dancing with any other men.” They were so close, she had to tilt her head to look into his eyes. “But you’re not mi—”
She clasped his face with both hands and brought his lips to hers.

Catching Her Heart

A For the Love of the Game Romance
by Jody Holford
Publication Date: September 9, 2019
Genres: Adult, Contemporary, Sports, Romance

Purchase: Amazon | Barnes & Noble | Kobo | Apple Books

When a beautiful brunette driver meets Nashville Slammers catcher, Sawyer McBain, at the airport, he figures it’s his lucky day. Sure, he’s usually pretty guarded around people, especially after what happened with his ex, but he can definitely enjoy the car ride. Until she passes his apartment…and keeps driving. All of a sudden the woman seems a lot less like romance material and a lot more like a kidnapper. What gives?

Slammers executive Addison Carlisle needs one little favor. Sure, she may have kinda maybe kidnapped one of her professional baseball players, but it’s for a really good cause. She desperately needs someone high-profile to auction off that night for the multiple sclerosis society she’s chairing, but he insists he wants a favor in return.

Soon Addie and Sawyer are trading completely ridiculous I.O.U.s, like being his plus-one to his grandmother’s poker game or keeping each other company at the driving range. But when their agreement goes from flirty to fiery, neither is ready to let their guard down for a shot at love.

Rating:⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Synopsis

Carter Strong

I yell at the referees because they tend to act like blind bats half of the time. I’m passionate, sure, but this new referee, has the audacity to throw me out of my own damn game. Who the f*ck does she think she is?

I own this league.

I could own her, if I wanted.

Sasha Chapman

My transfer to a new league was the perfect move for my career. Until I met, Coach Strong, the abrasive asshole who yelled at me and accused me of having my ponytail too tight to see. He had it coming. I didn’t mean for the media to go on a rampage about him, but when he accused me of being attracted to him, that was the last straw.

I needed to get away from him.

But he wouldn’t let me.

My Thoughts 💭

I enjoyed this book! Carter had to grow on me. He was hot tempered and kind of a jerk but he did get better when Sasha checked him! I liked Sasha she didn’t take Carter’s foolishness and she handled it well. I liked how they grew together. They had great chemistry and I loved their banter.

Blog Tour/ARC 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.”

Hook Shot by Kennedy Ryan!

Length: 408 pages

Rating:⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Source: Kindle Unlimited

Synopsis

A deeply emotional standalone romance set in the worlds of professional basketball and high fashion.

Divorced. Single dad. Traded to a losing squad. Cheated on, betrayed, exposed.

My perfect life blew up in my face and I’m still picking up the pieces.

The last thing I need is her.

A wildflower. A storm. A woman I can’t resist.

Lotus DuPree is a kick to my gut and a wrench in my plans

from the moment our eyes meet.

I promised myself I wouldn’t trust a woman again,

but I’ve never wanted anyone the way I want Lo.

She’s not the plan I made, but she’s the risk I have to take.

A warrior. A baller. The one they call Gladiator. Kenan Ross charged into my life smelling all good, looking even better and snatching my breath from the moment we met.

The last thing I need is him.

I’m working on me. Facing my pain and conquering my demons.

I’ve seen what trusting a man gets you.

I. Don’t. Have. Time. For. This.

But he just keeps coming for me.

Keeps knocking down my defenses and stealing my excuses

one by one.

He never gives up, and now…I’m not sure I want him to.

My Thoughts 💭

I absolutely loved Lotus and Kenan! Their story gave me all the feels! They had a connection at first sight and Lotus had tried hard to avoid it but it was inevitable! As soon as she swore off men for a while the perfect man for her makes his entrance to her life. They both were so loving and understanding with each other! This was a wonderfully written book and I definitely recommend it!
