Wild with You (#2 The Connor Family) Layla Hagen - Release Blitz



Planning weddings is my dream job. As a single Mom, I live vicariously through my brides. From picking the dress to cutting the cake, I'm there every step of the way.

When I meet the best man at the latest wedding, sparks fly. Graham Frazier is more than I bargained for. The charismatic soccer club owner is disillusioned with marriage after his divorce, so it's part of my job to make sure he won't slip any sarcastic jokes in his best man's speech.

It's not part of my job to notice his washboard abs, or that he kisses like a dream. Graham's touch is sizzling.

Before I know it, he bosses me into accepting gifts and spending the night at his house (his excuse is good: I can't possibly drive after working a wedding, can I?)

I say yes to both. There are no two ways about it. I have the hots for this bossy man.


Since my divorce, weddings aren't my favorite events. But when my best friends decide to tie the knot, I promise to throw them a party they won't forget.

I was counting on sitting through long hours of preparations, but I didn't count on meeting someone like Lori Connor.

I pursue her relentlessly, wanting those long legs wrapped around me and her smooth skin under my lips.

Then I meet her son, and that boy charms me even faster than his mother did. Before I know it, he has me wrapped around his little finger.

But are Lori and I ready for our lives to intertwine in ways we haven't even imagined before?

5 Stars

This is a delightful read with a good balance of love, angst, romance, rumpy pumpy and drama.

Graham has been through a difficult time and for the past two years, he has refrained from intimate relationships. 

Lori is a single mum who has devoted the past seven years to her son, Milo, and her business. She has a lot of support from her tight knit family. The Connors. 

Graham is to be best man at his best friends' wedding and is going all out to make it a memorable event. When they meet Lori to discuss the wedding plans, he is instantly attracted to her. Something he hasn't felt for a while. The further they go into the planning, the more their attraction grows. After her experience with her ex, Lori is wary of entering into a relationship. The last thing that she wants is for her and her son to be hurt again. Besides her family, she doesn't usually open up to anyone else. Except for his nana and his best friends, Graham tends to keep things to himself too. 

When her ex shows up to make unreasonable demands, by trying to do what he feels is right, Graham muddies the water. Then his father complicates things further by his behaviour. At this point, the relationship between Graham and Lori is uncertain. Can they come back from this fallout or will caution get the better of them? 

The Connor Family is growing on me as much as the Bennetts did. The way they support one another is refreshing and their sense of humour is contagious. Little Milo is endearing even when he is mischievous. I am totally compelled by this series so far and look forward to reading the next book.

Seven Minutes 'til Midnight (#3 Rock Gods) Sunniva Dee - Release Blitz

Seven Minutes ‘til Midnight, an all-new Standalone Rock Gods Romance by Sunniva Dee is NOW LIVE!!

A legendary drummer. An outrageous music video... and little me blowing his ever-loving mind in it.

Next thing I knew, my anonymity was a thing of the past.

“Clown Irruption’s smash hit goes from hawt to adult!”— Star Report, April Edition.

The uncensored, all-bared footage was leaked.

And here I was, forced to stare down the same paparazzi lenses the band did.
“Meet Aishe Xodyar, the vixen who made Troy Armstrong reach Heaven on tape!”—Fan Chicks, May Edition.

I cowered behind enemy lines.

Aka joined the band on their worldwide arena tour.

It was another one of my unfortunate miscalculations.

See, Troy Armstrong was formidable.
We were polar opposites, but he still sucked me in like a magnet.

A fragile truce set in between us. Then, a mutual crush.

I had an obsessive nature, but my fixation on him was downright wholesome compared to their new merch girl’s.

“Meet Hailey Pawter, secret stalker, fangirl, and dangerously gifted lookalike.”—Tabloid Minute, June Edition.

As Hailey’s web tightened around us, love in the limelight turned from complicated to impossible.

5 Stars

Seven Minutes 'til Midnight is a terrific addition to the Rock Gods series.

Troy and Aishe share a past which was amiable, until it wasn't. Aishe made an appearance for Clown Eruptions forthcoming video. It was meant to be a one off and she would go back to her life now that she has Troy out of her system! She didn't expect for this video to be leaked and all of a sudden, she is back in the band's life. 

Troy is a droolworthy respectable drummer whose principles are admirable. As much as he wants Aishe, he respects her boundaries. The chemistry between them can hardly be ignored. Their biggest problem is Hailey who has set her heart on claiming Troy. Will she succeed or will Troy and Aishe follow their hearts to their happiness? 

The emotions in this novel are palpable. Troy and Aishe fight hard to overcome what previously tore them apart and the reward is more than satisfying. Yet again, this author produces a soulful novel which captivates the heart. 

I was kindly issued with an eARC and the views expressed are my personal opinion. I have also purchased my own copy.

About Sunniva Dee

So you know I’m a writer. I write literary romances that are full of substance and romance. I tend to write in my head all the time, like when I sleep, breath, pet cats, am forced to make dinner, and even while doing my job as an adviser for students at an art college in the South—

I mean…I—I—I write at other times too.

I love international flights when they’re delayed and my Mac and I can dive into a bar. There’s nothing better than an hour or two lost (too quickly) in pages I didn’t know were waiting for me.

I hate schedules, real life, cross-country skiing, and moodiness not inside of me. Not that I enjoy it in me. I’m just used to it, and it feeds scenes in my books, see?

I giggle at everything. I don’t judge easily. People say I’m kind/genuine/shy/stubborn/annoying/aloof/boring, but above it all, I am passionate. A Dragon of the Chinese zodiac and an Aquarius with all-the-air and the brightest color palette. Incidentally, that last fact could be why no one wants to buy the house I’ve got for sale.

But mostly, I love to write.

Mixed up Love by Natasha Madison - Release Blitz


When my business partner asked me to do him a favor, I had no idea he was sending me on a blind date his mother arranged for him. I walked in the bar, saw the woman drinking her third martini, and knew I was in for an eventful night.

After the unexpected second date, she didn't know my real name or who I really was. By that time, the lie was too far gone, and I wanted her too much to admit the truth.


It's not every day you find out your ex-boyfriend is engaged.

I shouldn't have agreed to the blind date. My mother insisted, and I wasn’t in any position to turn down a night out.

I will admit, I definitely shouldn't have ordered that fourth martini before said blind date even arrived.

The man turned out to be swoon worthy, handsome, condescending—a perfect distraction. Then I found out he was a liar.

I've never been in over my head to this degree.

Then again, I've never been in love.

I pull up to the front door, and the valet meets me at my door once I stop. “Good evening, sir,” he says once I open my door.

“Yeah, I won’t be here long,” I tell him as I get out, not bothering to take off my sunglasses when I hand him the keys.

“No worries, sir. It will be here when you are ready,” he says, handing me the ticket for later. I put it in the inside pocket of my suit jacket. I walk inside to the hostess table, where a woman who looks like she is eighteen stands smiling.

“How may I help you?” she asks sweetly. I stop and look around to see if I might recognize the woman I’m here to meet, even though I’ve never met her. I spot a couple of women at the bar, but I instinctively know they aren’t her. I also check for exits. It’s not my fault; it’s just instilled in me.

Looking to the left, I don’t see anyone sitting alone, but then I look to the right, and I see her. I don’t know why I know it’s her, but I just do. With curly long blond hair, she downs a martini, then picks up another one and brings it to her mouth. I spot a waiter walking with two more martinis on his tray, and I’m not surprised when I see him approaching her table. “Great,” I say under my breath. “I found her,” I tell the hostess and start walking toward the table. She spots me and watches my every move. Luckily, the glasses I’m wearing stop her from seeing my eyes.

The closer I get to her, the more my pulse speeds up. What the fuck? This is weird. I look around maybe to see if something else is piquing my interest or maybe I spotted something to elevate my pulse, but no, it’s her. The fact that a gorgeous woman is sitting by herself and drinking like a fish is enough to get any man’s adrenaline pumping. Isn’t it?

“Are you Laney?” I ask, taking off my glasses, and my gray eyes finally meet her blue ones. She opens her mouth, expecting, I think, something to come out, but nothing does. I continue looking around to see if anyone is watching her, and it’s no surprise that I spot two guys at the bar sizing her up.

“Here are two more.” The waiter smiles at her, putting two more glasses down on the table and taking the two now empty ones away. She laughs nervously, and I want to reach out and trip him when he walks away.

“It isn’t what it looks like.” Her soft voice breaks me out of my plan, and I turn back to her as she smiles at me, causing my heartbeat to skyrocket. The collar of my shirt suddenly feels tight, but it’s not even buttoned.

“Really? I find it hard to believe,” I finally say. Looking around again, I spot the same two guys in suits sitting at the bar watching her. This time, one of them spots me and looks back down at his drink. “It looks like you’re sitting here waiting for something bad to happen.” I pull out the chair and sit in front of her.

“Um.” She still doesn’t say anything.

3 Stars

A blind date between two reluctant individuals who think that they would turn up, have a drink and make their escapes. As it happens fate has different ideas!

Hunter is ex SEAL and runs a security company with a group of friends. He has flings, but doesn't date.

Laney has her dream job and hasn't dated since she found out that her then boyfriend was a cheat and a liar.

Hunter's friend, Anthony asks him to go on a blind date arranged by his mother. Hunter reluctantly agrees as his friend has other plans. Laney has just discovered that her ex is engaged and agrees to the blind date. Just the distraction that she needs. For once, she lets her hair down and indulges in one too many "refreshments"! Her date arrives when she is on her third and it's no way to make an impression. Does she really care? Most likely not.

Hunter starts to lecture her on her behaviour and soon finds out that she is no push over. This intrigues him, and he takes her to his favourite restaurant. Although, their first impressions were far from desirable, they enjoy the so called date. The first leads to a second and they quite like each other's company. Neither of them has ever felt so comfortable in the company of a date. They are both smitten, but there is a problem. Hunter is still acting under false pretenses! What happens when Laney uncovers his true identity and the lie?

This novel is fairly easy to read and although it's not insta love, the development of the romance is rather fast. Hunter is overbearing when it comes to safety, but the reasons behind his fears sort of justify his behaviour. Laney is dependable, but she makes rash decisions. They work pretty well as a couple. It's a light read with a little humour.

DishonoAdred by Bethany-Kris - Blog Tour


by Bethany-Kris
Publication Date: August 6, 2018
Genres: Adult, Organized Crime, Mafia, Romantic Suspense



Sex is his weapon.
Power is her drug.

Caesar Accardo is gasoline. Mostly harmless while stable, but Aria holds the match to set the dishonored Cosa Nostra prince on fire in more ways than one. And if he burns down everything in his path because of it, so be it.

The problem is  she just wasn't prepared for all of him.

Aria De Rose is a hurricane. Amazing from afar, but destructive up close. Caesar keeps getting pulled into the Camorra queen's plans in her effort to gain power, but he's a better player than she knows.

The thing is  women like her are the reason why rules are meant to be broken.

Philadelphia isn't ready for the game these two are playing, the sacrifices they make might not be worth it in the end, and someone will always lose in a war.

They're broken, so very vicious, and they are not the good guys. But for every villain in the world, there's a monster at his back who made him that way.

And monsters like those hide in plain sight.

Note: This is a standalone romance with content that some might find triggering. Be warned, and read with caution.

5 Stars

Wow! This author never ceases to amaze me. Dishonored is a fitting title to this novel where the two main characters are no "goodie two shoes". It's what makes this story unique and spellbinding.

Caesar is the son of a Cosa Nostra boss. Unlike every made man, he does everything in his power to go against what they represent. He is a broken soul who doesn't give a toss about what anyone else thinks and somehow he gets away with all his "misdeeds"! 

Aria is from a different organisation where the rules are totally different. Women should know their place! On the surface, she plays the role well, but she has an ultimate motive. To gain power and find her freedom. She can be deadly! 

Part of Aria's plan is to get an "in" in the Cosa Nostra. Who better to manipulate than Caesar? After all, his reputation precedes him. Their first meeting is very well orchestrated by Aria, but in the process she gets more than she bargained for. For the first time in his life, Caesar feels more than sexual attraction. Aria is something else. They can't resist each other even when Caesar finds that he has been played. He wants her and wants to kill her at the same time. They are both cunning, and now that they are aware of the reasons behind their behavior, will they come to an agreement to end the conflicts between the two organisations and explore their irresistible attraction? 

This sensational story is souldestroying and full of mystery. The reasons for Aria's behaviour are horrific, but Caesar's past is deplorable. What they both went through turned them into who they are today, but once again love proves to be the best healer.

Cocky (#5 Spartan Riders) JC Valentine - Blog Tour


by J.C. Valentine
Spartan Riders MC, #5
Publication Date: July 30, 2018
Cover Credits: Sara Eirew
Genres: Adult, Contemporary, Romance, MC Romance, Biker, Standalone



USA Today and International and bestselling author J.C. Valentine is back with the latest in her captivating, enigmatic, and rousing world of the Spartan Riders MC

They've been through hell and back and have the scars to prove it.

Kade Moose Hunter doesn't tolerate drama. He's cocky, unapologetic, and all about the quiet side of life.

That's why Mouse fits him so well.

Angel Mouse Grace isn't like the other women hanging around the club. She's sweet and gentle, and when Moose gets her engines revving, her passion burns bright. She's the yin to his yang, and Moose is almost certain she's the one, but life is never that easy for a Spartan.

The catch? Their town is falling apart.

A cesspool of crime and addiction, the Spartans face yet another challenge: confront crime lord Manuel Contreras and risk war, or worse, death. When Angel's kid sister rolls into town and takes a shine to the Spartans' mortal enemy, Moose is torn between doing what's best for his family, and what's best for his love life.

Will he be able to strike a balance, or lose everyone he cares about in the process?

*NOTE* COCKY can be read as a STANDALONE! Although a part of the Spartan Riders series, COCKY features a brand new couple, therefore, can be read as a standalone!



4 Stars

This brings a sparkling finish to the Spartan Riders trials and tribulations.

Although Moose and Mouse are at the centre of this story, loose ends pertaining to other couples are nicely tied up.

Moose and Mouse are getting deeper into their hot relationship, but feelings are begenning to surface. Neither of them expect this development and have to decide on what they really want out of life.

Rena, Mouse's younger sister who is always in trouble makes a surprise visit, but omits to tell her sister the real reason why she is in town. She wants a clean start and everything comes with a price. Sleeping with the enemy is easy, but falling for him is a different story.

Heath has his own romantic feature. An interaction over toothpaste turns into something more. What he doesn't know is that she is the enemy's daughter, but the heart knows what it wants.

Talia and Taco are still estranged and the truth about her reason for leaving comes to light, but can he forgive and forget?

This story encompasses the lives of the other couples in the Spartan Riders series and ends on a positive and hopeful note. They have achieved what they have been striving for. A worthy finish to this encapsulating mission of the Spartan Riders.

When his latest task pushes him to team up with FBI Agent Amy Murray, a fierce beauty with the undercover skills to match, Cabe must admit that, for the first time in years, he wants to do more than just complete their mission together…

But when the sparks begin to fly―and the stakes rise to dangerous heights―the only thing Amy is left worrying about is how she can resist him. Their lives may be in danger, but their hearts hold the biggest risk of all…

Four Stars

Deep Cover is a great addition to the Love over Duty series. It's about the last unattached of the trio in Eagle Securities. Three best friends who have known each other most of their lives with a rather impressive friendship.

Cabe, an ex SEAL is dedicated to his job despite his grief striken experience two years ago. He has given up on finding love again. Until now!

Coming from a professional gambling family, Amy has this uncanny way of remembering and reading people. As an FBI agent she has gone through some difficult situations with some bigots in the organisation. She is now rellocated, but is weary of her male colleagues.

When Eagle Securities is brought in by the FBI to help uncover a money laundering ring, Cabe finds himself working alongside Amy whose ultimate goal is stop sex trafficking. Having gone through a loss at a very young age, she joined the FBI to make this her mission in life. As much as she tries to avoid getting involved with her co workers, she is finding it hard to resist Cabe's appeal. As for Cabe, for the first time in two years he finds himself wanting "more" from Amy.

They both carry the baggage of their pasts, but they eventually throw caution to the wind and find that there is "More" between them. The problem is that they are afraid of history repeating itself. Can they overcome this fear and explore what's between them?

I found this installment just as entrancing as the first two. The mission is dangerous. Mac, Six and Cabe remain loyal to their cause and to each other. Amy and Cabe are great characters. This romantic suspense is well worth reading.
