Accidental Tryst

by Mia London

 

So much for the American Dream. After twenty years of marriage, successful careers, and two teenage boys, Angie and Mac’s relationship dissolves into disappointment and resentment. Overworked and underappreciated, the toll of their problems fizzles their dream of happily ever after.
Smacked in the face with failure, Steve “Mac” MacKey refuses to give up so easily, and strategizes how to win back his wife. So a plan to confront her by leveraging the boys backfires on him. In the most wonderfully unexpected way.
Angie’s misery in marriage is topped only by her misery without Mac. When she confronts Mac in his office, she learns just how fine that line is between lust and anger. And when she thought her husband couldn’t care any less about her, he sparked a new fire inside her she didn’t know existed . . . that felt so damn good.

Sex may not solve everything, and it’s a far cry from making any real changes, or fixing her emotional rollercoaster.

Can they last that ride long enough to save their marriage, or are their rifts and broken promises too deep to cross?

About the author…

8414916.jpgI love to write!

I’ve been reading fiction for years and finally decided that the images and scenes floating around in my head needed to make it to paper.

I’m a huge fan of romance, highly optimistic, and wildly faithful to the HEA (happily ever after). I’m inspired by most anything around me. And my biggest obstacle is not having enough time to get it all down on paper (or my computer, as the case may be).

My goal is create a fantasy you will enjoy with characters you could love.

I live in Texas with my attentive, loving, super-model husband, and my perfectly behaved, brilliant children. My produce never wilts, there are no weeds in my flowerbeds, and chocolate is my favorite food group.
And then I wake up.


Review

I received a copy of the book for an honest review. Absolutely loved reading Mia London’s approach to a marriage that could happen any and everywhere. It was absolutely real and raw to read Angie and Mac’s story–a marriage that has gone stale. Each chapter—beginning with an amazing opening–brings you closer and closer inside a story that gives layers and emotions to each character. Truly a great read, and a wonderful HEA.

The Sweetest Match by Abby Tyler (Review)

The Sweetest Match
Abby Tyler
Publication date: March 7th 2019
Genres: Adult, Contemporary, Romance

She hid secret messages in frosting, thinking no one would notice.

Abby Tyler welcomes you to the witty, well-meaning busybodies of Applebottom, Missouri, where the community takes its pies — and its matchmaking — very seriously.

Sandy Miller became an outcast at fifteen years old. Pregnant, confused, and blackmailed into silence, she spent eighteen years raising her son away from the disapproving stares of her hometown.

But Caden has left for college, and Sandy needs a job. When Applebottom’s tea shop owner sees Sandy’s decorating sketches, she hires her instantly in hopes of putting her little bakery on the map.

And then the town starts spotting secret words of love and longing on her cakes.

Andrew McCallister is the first to admit that he never got over Sandy Miller. In high school, another boy swooped in and snatched her right up. Everything that happened afterward filled him with regret. The town’s censure. His failure to check on her. Her struggle.

But now she’s back.

When the town summons the pair to a meeting to plan the school’s centennial bash, Andrew and Sandy discover they are the only two members of the committee. As they attempt to rekindle the long-lost flame, they realize the community must come together for more than an anniversary party. For their new relationship to flourish, the old guard must learn to support their most vulnerable members even when times get hard.

Abby Tyler is the new small-town romance pen name of USA Today bestselling author Deanna Roy / JJ Knight.

Review for The Sweetest Match

 

The Sweetest Match was a perfect cozy read to curl up around and get comfortable with. I adored the relationship between Sandy and Andrew and their sweet dynamic brought their characters to life. Andrew stole the show, being a history teacher with a heart of gold. Sandy was a heroine with a strong and determined personality that gave both characters the personalities that I look for in my romance novels. All in all, The Sweetest Match is a tasty treat for everyone that loves a happily ever after!

The Date Deal by Tara Sue Me (Review)

The Date Deal

By Tara Sue Me

Seven years ago, I went from being America’s Golden Son to That Idiot faster than you can say, “Foul ball.”

At the time, I thought I was making the right decision by ditching my professional baseball career and today, I know I did. But I’ll admit, being the punchline of every late night comic changed me. The paparazzi no longer follow me and the media’s moved on, but I still live by rules created to ensure I would never be a laughingstock again.

My rules are restrictive and controlling. They dictate what I do and who I do it with.

They do not allow for a free spirit, bound and determined to get a recording deal in Nashville. A woman actively chasing a public life I turned my back on. And they certainly will not accept the little sister of the man who recently married my ex.

Unfortunately, this siren with the voice of an angel, is the only woman I want.

So I made a deal…

THE DATE DEAL


About the author…

NEW YORK TIMES/USA TODAY BESTSELLING AUTHOR

Even though she graduated with a degree in science, Tara knew she’d never be happy doing anything other than writing. Specifically, writing love stories.

She started with a racy BDSM story and found she was not quite prepared for the unforeseen impact it would have. Nonetheless, she continued and The Submissive Series novels would go on to be both New York Times and USA Today Bestsellers. One of those, THE MASTER, was a 2017 RITA finalist for Best Erotic Romance.

Now she is focusing on new contemporary romances that allow her the freedom to write and publish on her own schedule.


Review of The Date Deal

I truly enjoyed every aspect of this book! Tara continues to mold and shape her characters into such memorable people that it leaves the reader always wanting more. What I enjoyed best about Carsen and Tate were that they came from such different situations, but seemed to compliment one another nicely. The “opposites attract” style of the book gave me much to enjoy with each turn of the page. I loved this story, and look forward to what will come next from the great romantic mind of Tara Sue Me.

Born Of Sin (Book 2) By Deanna Richmond (Review)

Book Cover Born Of Sin 2.jpg

Born Of Sin (Book 2)

By Deanna Richmond

Genre: Gothic; Paranormal Romance

Love is a curse.

Victor Logan Marchette has roamed the Earth for over 600 years as a vampire. Faithful to Cabalistis, the vampires’ governing body, Victor’s lifelong allegiance has put him beyond reproach.

Until the day that he meets Octavia Vail.

No mere woman, Octavia was born from a centuries-old curse – one so dangerous that even the powerful Vampire clan dreads its dark birth. When Victor and Octavia’s passion ignites, the curse only grows stronger and beyond Octavia’s control. And when Ciprian, the oldest vampire on Earth, discovers Octavia’s secret, he’ll stop at nothing to destroy her… and Victor.

Branded a traitor, Victor must escape America with Octavia so he can save her. But it comes with a price. Because keeping Octavia safe means reviving Victor’s dark past – the one that gave him the long-forgotten title of Barbarian.

Born of Sin is a thrilling Gothic Romance that redefines love. Because when Victor and Octavia forge their unlikely relationship, the greatest heights of love can easily fall… into the darkest depths of madness.

Review of ‘Born Of Sin’

Wow. This was QUITE the ride! You definitely need to read the first book in the series before starting on book two, as this is not a stand alone romance. The excitement between Victor and Octavia piles and piles up into a tangled web of intrigue. I was drawn immediately by the first chapter. What made this book run smoothly was Richmond’s character detail and depth. She did not disappoint in creating a wild world of vampires and the paranormal. I highly recommend getting your hands on a copy of the first book, in order to truly appreciate the romance and adventure of the second!

Moonlight Scandals

by Jennifer L. Armentrout

It takes a fearless woman to love the most scandalous man alive in New York Times Bestselling Author Jennifer L. Armentrout’s breathtaking novel

Even a ghost hunter like Rosie Herpin couldn’t have foreseen the fateful meeting between two mourners that has brought her so intimately close to the notorious and seductive Devlin de Vincent. Everyone in New Orleans knows he’s heir to a dark family curse that both frightens and enthralls. To the locals, Devlin is the devil. To Rosie, he’s a man who’s stoking her wildest fantasies. When a brutal attack on her friend is linked to the de Vincents, he becomes a mystery she may be risking her life to solve.

Devlin knows what he wants from this sexy and adventurous woman. But what does Rosie want from him? It’s a question that becomes more pressing—and more dangerous—when he suspects her of prying into the shadows of his past.

Now, the legends surrounding the de Vincents may not be myths at all. But if she’s to discover the truth, she must follow them straight into the arms of the man she can’t resist—the handsome devil himself

Fading To Black by V.H. Luis (Review)

Fading to Black
V.H. Luis
(Uninhibited #2)
Publication date: November 20th 2018
Genres: Adult, Contemporary, Romance

We’re flawed. Both full of scars and tormented by the shadows of our past. But in each other’s arms we find solace, we find perfection.

Adam Black. Gorgeous, demanding, a sinful dream that once was my reality.

I was his… until I walked away.

For months I’ve managed to curb my Adam addiction. I’ve focused my energy on my painting career. I’ve found success. Still there is a dangerous urge within me I can’t resist, one that tempts me to be reckless. My life isn’t complete.

Something is missing… he’s missing.

I left him, but fate again has made us collide. And this time I won’t turn away—I won’t be the only one revealing the scars of my past.

I was his… am his… and this time he’ll be completely mine.

Goodreads / Amazon

 

Author Bio:

V.H. Luis is the author of the Black Series, an erotic romance trilogy that follows the love affair of Evelyn Snowe and Adam Black. Her debut book WAKING to Black, was released May 2, 2018, and the subsequent sequels FADING to Black, and SURRENDERING to Black, will follow shortly thereafter.

I’m a born and bred Miami Girl–and proud of it! I would wear shorts and flip-flops everyday of the week if I could. Growing up in Miami, surrounded by my parent’s heritage has made me proud of my Cuban ancestry. Cafecito and a guava pastry for breakfast? Yes, please! Salsa music while I tidy the house? Of course.

If I’m not busy scribbling notes about a story, I’m painting, listening to music, or spending time with the love of my life–my son. If I decide to travel, I bring the whole family (in-laws included), or at least I try to, because life is too short not to spend it with family; one of the many lessons my father taught me.

Review of Fading To Black

This book takes you for quite a ride. Evie is always racing into irrational behaviors and Adam seems to bring her back to reality. That push and pull in a storyline always tends to help me fall into the world the author creates. Fading To Black weaves a tale that continues on from one book to the next, bringing about two very raw and very fascinating characters that practically need one another to breathe. I enjoyed the sex scenes a lot as well. The way these two were drawn to each other made it real. I definitely will be checking out the next book in the series!

Hard Trigger by S.L. Hannah (Review)

Hard Trigger

by S.L. Hannah

“Your mother’s opiates are coming from Jose Herrera’s distribution network.” My pulse races as my stepfather speaks these words. Because taking on the Herreras also means taking on Diego.
Reckless, and hardened by a volatile past, Victoria does not see a future with Diego Herrera as a realistic option. As their childhood friendship ignites, they find themselves on opposite sides of a bloody feud between the two most powerful families in Mexico City. And she’s a Moreno now—brought up to be the secret weapon nobody suspected.But Victoria can’t deny the attraction. Diego’s commanding muscles, the coarse, dark hair of his solid chest, that rugged scar above his sensuous lips…

Loyalty is in the eye of the beholder.


About the author…

dsc07457bw2small
S.L. Hannah was born in Poland, grew up in Canada, and moved to Southern California to pursue her love of single-engine airplanes. Her latest, Hard Trigger, is an enemies-to-lovers story about a woman that must spill the blood of her lover’s family to stop the flow of opiates that are killing her mother. S.L. Hannah lives in Los Angeles, CA with her husband and garden of succulents. When she’s not writing fiction, she continues to solve the aviation problems of the world.

Review for Hard Trigger

I had received this book early on as a first draft and finally to a final draft. I must say, the two were incredible reads and complete page turners in their own rights! S.L. Hannah delivers a hardened but willful heroine. She is an individual powerhouse that is to not be messed with. I loved the way she brought her to life and weaved a tale of intrigue and suspense. Her hero, Diego, is the only even match she’s faced. I loved the push and pull these two shared between one another, in and out of the bedroom–or other various places around the house. They were a duo that brought the story to a climatic point and left the reader panting for more.

Teaser Excerpt:

“His kiss was hard and long as he took my head in both his powerful hands and devoured my mouth. His lips felt soft and I felt like I was eating a succulent strawberry as I returned his kiss. It was an out of this world long kiss and it was all about that moment in time. All my values and lifelong objectives were left on the wayside. Any will to resist was long gone as I gave myself up to these two hungry wolves. I forgot about all my good girl values and was instead overpowered by something higher and bigger than that. I gave into absolute carnal desire as my body started to pulse and convulse as they took full control.”

Review for Let Me Love You

This was my first “older” heroine and “younger” hero romance and BOY OH BOY does it set the bar high for my next one! Jessica Jayne gives you a glimpse into a relationship that exceeds my expectations for what love can look like, no matter your age. Ren and Stacey were wonderful, and their backstories were realistic and thought out, all through the end.
