Synopsis

Trigger

You can run, but you can’t hide from me, mama. The cat and mouse game is what I do for a living: I chase criminals and apprehend them. But you ain’t no criminal, Candy. The only thing you’re guilty of is giving me a taste and expecting it to be enough. I can help you, if you’ll let me. I can clear this mess up – but for the love of God, don’t try and run from me, because one dip in your sensual pool just ain’t enough for this cowboy. I need more. I need it all.

Candy

You say you came to meet up with me and then you reveal the truth: that you’re a bounty hunter and you know my darkest secret. Of course, I’m going to bolt. It doesn’t matter that your rugged cowboy looks and firm hand completely undo me. Thanks to my traumatic past, I can’t trust you! Don’t look for me, Trigger, and definitely don’t come to back to Atlanta for me. You took one dip and I survived; but if you double dip, there’s no way I’ll be able to resist you.

My thoughts 💭

I liked this book! Trigger knew he wanted Candy and didn’t let her go. One taste wasn’t enough for the cowboy! This was a steamy and sweet read.

Blog Tour/ARC Review: Pretty Lies by Bethany-Kris

PRETTY LIES

by Bethany-Kris
Publication Date: March 2, 2020
Genres: Adult, New Adult, Mafia Romance, Romantic Suspense

SYNOPSIS

Pretty things always tell lies …

Cory Rossi isn’t what you would expect the youngest son of the Chicago mob’s underboss to be. Despite what everyone thinks, he can actually do what he’s told. He just does it his own way. The problem with that is every tattooed- and leather-covered inch of him screams one thing to Della Costello—total heartbreak. It’s all men like him do, right? One hook-up, when he didn’t even know her name, was all she could afford.

Their one-time encounter should have stopped there. But an ex that causes problems for her business—and the mob’s—and Cory becomes her new shadow until the bullets quiet in the streets. It gets harder and harder to stay out of his bed.

They’ll walk a fine line.
And there is no mercy in this tragedy.

For love and lost blood, once more, Chicago will rage.

Pretty Lies is a standalone romantic suspense within Bethany-Kris’s Commission World.

Autumn Archer: A Northern Irish #1 Bestselling Romance Author who thrives on gin and the written word. She’s a mother to two cool kids, two cute dogs and has a fluffle of wild rabbits in the back garden. Between working in the city during the day, entertaining the brood, feeding the husband and cuddling with the pups, she somehow manages to write romance.


Brie Paisley is a small town gal from Mississippi. She always wanted to write at a young age and was always filling journals with her thoughts and short stories. Brie started with the idea of Worshipped a year ago and with the encouragement of her husband and sister in law, she was able to write her first book. When she is not writing, you can find her reading a good book, painting, scrapbooking, or watching a good movie with her husband and her boxer.


Summer Zoris is an author, wife, mother, reader and coffee lover who loves to take you on an emotional ride with her books.
When she was younger, it was her best friend who got her into writing in the first place. School was boring? Afternoon off? Fanfic writing was what they would do for hours to no end. Publishing, though, hadn’t been anything on Summer’s radar until she woke up one day from a very vivid dream. It was one of those you can’t get rid of, so she ended up writing it down. And writing some more on it. Until a full story started to emerge. It was her best friend who ended up pushing her to take the next step and put the book out there.

Laura Farr: A Wife and Mummy of 2 who is pursuing her dream of writingRachael Tonks is a romance author with a love of books, and a particular love of the romance genre. As a child Rachael could always be found with her head in a book, but it wasn’t until the beginning of 2015 when Rachael’s love of books really took over. Reading spurred on her desires to put pen to paper. Starting out her career with a new adult romance novel, she has now published multiple novels, ranging from dark romance to contemporary. Rachael lives in the steely suburb of Sheffield, in the north of England with her family. She has 3 beautiful children and a crazy dog. She loves nothing more reading with a good cup of tea and is self-proclaimed chocoholic!


Paige Thomas debut novel Starstruck was originally released by Ellora’s Cave Publishing in 2013, with her first short story Count Me In following close behind. Since parting ways with the now defunct publisher, she decided to become an independent author.

Paige is a contemporary romance author who loves to add splashes of other genres into her work. Whether it’s thriller, suspense, mystery or paranormal, someone’s usually sarcastic and someone always gets laid.

She lives on the central coast of New South Wales, Australia with her husband and son, and continues to battle her addiction to dark chocolate and hot musicians.

She wants to be Stephen King when she grows up.


Stacy McWilliams is a Scottish Author who loves romance. All of her books have a romantic element and her books will keep you on the edge of your seat, make you want to throw your kindle around and her characters will make you either love them or loathe them.

Rae B Lake is a daydreamer, nurse, bookworm, nature enthusiast, wife, momma, animal activist and an optimist. She has lived her entire life in NYC and loves to travel with her family. She believes that sweets should have a larger piece of the nutritional pyramid and that Buffy the Vampire Slayer was one of the best TV shows ever invented. When she is not working as a nurse in her community, she can either be found reading, writing, or taking a walk while listening to music. She has been writing books in her mind for as long as she can remember but decided that maybe there were others out in the world that would find joy in the words she would put down on the page.

Renea Porter is best known for writing realistic stories with realistic characters. Her stories may even cause you to shed a tear or two. She mainly writes New Adult and Contemporary Romances. However, she’s not afraid to venture into other genres like Paranormal Romance.
She enjoys spending time with her husband of fourteen years, and stepson. She calls Pennsylvania home but loves to travel and try new things. In her free time, you can catch her reading books, watching reality tv, and baking.

Lara Norman used to scribble her fictional characters down on legal pads in high school, and then not show them to anyone. In recent years, she started posting her work in public forums for feedback, which gave her the courage to publish professionally.
She needs copious amounts of coffee and chocolate to survive. She enjoys eavesdropping on the character conversations in her head, which she has been assured doesn’t make her crazy. She always gets the best ideas while in the shower, driving, or about to fall asleep.

Though she’s a Florida girl at heart, Lara currently resides in the Blue Ridge Mountains with her husband of twenty years and their three children, where she is living out her own happily ever after with the boy she met at age fifteen.


Eden Rose As a child, I loved telling stories to entertain myself and my friends from the beginning. The most outlandish stories about random things that I concocted in my head, I would tell to my friends and family. It took many years for me to harness that into an actual book. Once I bit the bullet and decided to publish Save Me (The Lucky Family Series), I had to continue writing.

It’s been something that has always intrigued me.
Maybe its because I’ve been alone most of my life.
I was the only one looking out for me, but I guess that’s what happens when you get shipped around different foster homes.
I want more out of my life.
Two has always been my favourite number.
Two men all for me.
Two different hands to touch, tease and caress me.
Two different lips to kiss me.
One has never been enough. Two would satisfy my appetite. It could all just be the wishful thinking, desires of a stupid young woman but then I met someone who holds the key to my every fantasy…
 










Elaine May is my Author name. I live in the South West of England with my two beautiful daughters and yummy hubby. I love reading dark and twisted tales that mess with your head. I love to travel and spending time with my family. My dream is for people to like what I’ve written and hopefully get to go to a book signing event as an author.

If I don’t bend, I’ll break.

Georgia Meyers business may be sweets but that’s not what she’s looking for in a man. In fact, she’s not looking for any man. Running Sweet Georgia, her candy shop in the center of Angel’s Lake, is her priority.

Police officer, Cam Andrews is known for being a good cop and a shy man. Meeting Georgia, he’s not only smitten but impressed. When a handsy Santa tries to grab more than her holiday suckers, Georgia quickly puts him in his place. With her knee. Cam and other officers arrive just in time to see she doesn’t need to be rescued.

Georgia’s new life plan is all about staying focused on business. She has no intention of acting on her growing feelings for the charming police officer. Cam’s not a casual kind of guy. Georgia insists she’s not a forever kind of girl.

Cam respects Georgia’s wishes about not pursuing the attraction between them, but when her shop is vandalized, he closes the distance. In a professional capacity.

As more incidents happen, Cam is convinced Georgia has made an enemy. She might want to deny their snowballing feelings but he won’t ignore his sworn duty to protect.

Even if she was, there’s something she’s not telling him that could put them in more danger than getting caught under the mistletoe.

Publication Date: December 2, 2019
Genres: Adult, Romantic Suspense, Organized Crime. Erotic Romance, Standalone

SYNOPSIS

When falling is easy, people often forget about the crash.

The time has finally come for Marcus Guzzi to step into his birthright. He’s the firstborn—the next boss to take over his family’s mafia and he’s never been more ready. With an MC encroaching on Guzzi territory, family expectations following him, and more responsibility on his shoulders than ever, what’s one more thing added to his ever-growing list of duties when his father asks for a favor? He just didn’t expect that favor to bring with it a woman he can’t ignore.

Cella Marcello is a lot of things. Single mother. Daughter of a former New York Underboss. A highly sought-after interior designer. Widow. The one thing she’s learned about life after all that’s happened in hers? It keeps moving on, and so does she. When a contract for a penthouse design takes her to Toronto, she isn’t ready for the gorgeously dangerous man waiting there to make sure she has everything she needs. Even if the thing she needs is him.

Marcus is everything she never wanted before now. He wasn’t even looking for someone like her. When the traumas of the past take center stage, these two will need to decide if the chance at forever is worth the risk.

The final Guzzi Legacy novel …

Note: Marcus is a standalone romance within The Guzzi Legacy series.

My thoughts 💭

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

I loved Marcus’ story! He was just amazing! Cella was perfect for him. Neither of them were looking for love but it found them anyway! The suspense, angst and love were a perfect fit and conclusion to the Guzzi Legacy series.

SALLY: A Steamy Chick Lit Novella

Undateables, #3
by L. Moone
Publication Date: December 2, 2019
Genres: Adult, Contemporary, Chick Lit, Romance

SYNOPSIS

I don’t do relationships. I don’t do love.

The closest thing I have to a soulmate is my best friend and colleague, Becky, and I don’t even share myself with her. To me, men are fun playthings to be enjoyed in small doses. Luckily, Mark – my latest conquest, as well as our manager at work – seems to like it that way too.

One day my carefree existence is interrupted when a ghost from my past makes an appearance. My ex Gareth has tracked me down at work, and my world threatens to crumble. Old wounds are ripped open, and painful secrets are about to be exposed. I thought I was over him, but my once strong facade threatens to break down. On top of that, Gareth’s appearance has made Mark jealous, adding awkwardness to what was previously a perfectly casual affair.

Why is it that the harder I try to ignore these complications, the worse I feel? No matter how hard I try to run from it, the past is intent on catching up with me. Perhaps now it’s time to admit that it wouldn’t be so bad to confide in someone. To rely on someone other than myself.

Sally is the third book in L. Moone’s Undateables series. This women’s fiction novella features themes of loss, gender-nonconformity and plenty of colourful (British English) language.

ABOUT L. MOONE

Realistic characters, pure emotions, true passion. Everything I write is about the characters: how they interact, what’s going on in their heads, how the passionate relationship develops and affects them. I don’t believe in keeping things hidden, or dressing them up just for show. Some of my characters are potty-mouths, most of them are less than perfect (yes, even physically). I aim to write a happy ending for all of them, without keeping anything behind closed doors.

Review: Stroke The Flame by Elizabeth Briggs

Length:266 pages

Published: May 3, 2018

Rating:⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Source: Kindle Unlimited

Synopsis

Four sexy dragon shifters. A huntress with a dark past. A bond that could save the world.

I’ve spent my entire life running from my past and staying out of trouble. That’s how I’ve kept alive ever since my parents were killed by the Black Dragon, who’s ruled the world under her oppressive talons for as long as anyone can remember.

But it’s hard to keep a low profile when four handsome strangers turn up in your village claiming you’re destined to save the world. According to them, they’ve been chosen by the gods to become elemental dragons—and I’m their mate.

Which means one day I’ll be the most powerful dragon of all, able to control all four elements. Assuming I can unlock my powers first…by getting intimate with each of my sexy mates.

Auric, the clever prince. Jasin, the cocky soldier. Slade, the protective blacksmith. Reven, the mysterious assassin. And me. We’re the only ones who can bring balance to the world and overthrow the Black Dragon—if she doesn’t tear us to shreds first.

STROKE THE FLAME is the first book in a new steamy reverse harem fantasy series.

My thoughts 💭

This was a great start to the series! There’s action and dragons! Kira is no pushover and will fight if necessary. I adored Auric and Jasin! They were all for finding Kira and being her mate. Slade and Reven are in denial and standoffish but hopefully that ends soon. Everyone is keeping secrets and it is kind of cute how they’re all cautious with each other and their mission.

Review: Dragon’s Tears by Eva Chase

Rating:⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Source: Kindle Unlimited

Synopsis

Discovering you may be the last dragon shifter alive—and that you’re destined to take four hot alpha shifters as your mates—can throw a girl for a bit of a loop. But now that Ren is getting her powers and her enemies under control, her confidence is growing. A little hike into the mountains to uncover her mother’s last secret seems like no big deal with her guys by her side.

Too bad life has other plans. The farther Ren goes, the more other secrets surface. Secrets that threaten the fragile peace between the shifters and the fae. Secrets that could destroy the bond Ren’s forming with her mates. With unexpected enemies around every corner, it’ll take all her newfound strength to survive the fray.

*This is the second book in a steamy reverse harem paranormal romance series intended for readers 18+. Expect sexy situations, intense action, ongoing storylines, and a quartet of alluring wolf, bear, jaguar, and eagle alpha shifters you’ll wish you could make your mates.*

My Thoughts 💭

I’m enjoying Ren’s journey. She’s showing she’s not one to take foolishness no matter who it’s from. Aaron and Nate are the only ones she’s mated with so far so they’re okay. Marco and West are jerks but they’re her jerks I guess. I can’t wait to see how they respond to the attack on Nate’s estate.
