Hissy Fit - Lani Lynn Vale

He is the one that never looks her way.

He is handsome and strong.

He is rough around the edges and mean.

He is everything she’s ever wanted.

He doesn’t even know she exists.

Her life is a joke.


She doesn’t step on cracks in the sidewalk.

She laughs at inappropriate times.

She talks when she shouldn’t.

She is clumsy and trips on air.

She is finally on his radar.

God help her now.



4 Stars 

I always get excited when Lani Lynn Vale starts a new series and I was thoroughly entertained by Hissy Fit, the first title in The Southern Gentleman series. 

With Lani's signature brand of humor throughout this title will leave you with a smile upon your face.  The heat between this pair is undeniable, and this story just oozes heart. 

Raleigh is over the top awkward.  She's a complete klutz, yet at the same time incredibly sweet and kind.  She has a tendency to speak her mind without thought for the ramifications for what she blurts out.  

Ezra is completely oblivious to Raleigh's existence.  Honestly I thought he was going to be an egotistical ass, but he's actually a really great hero. 

I adored this endearing pair and thoroughly enjoyed this sweet and fun story, and cannot wait for the second book in the series Lord Have Mercy.

Play To Win - Kelly Jamieson - Release Blitz

He only plays to win...

Play to Win by Kelly Jamieson is now live!

Meet the Wynns—a hockey dynasty built on family, money, and drama. From USA Today bestselling author Kelly Jamieson, the first novel in a new series is a total win-win.“Kelly Jamieson is an auto-buy for me.”—Carly Phillips

After an injury forced Théo Wynn to give up professional hockey, he turned to his second love: numbers. Now, as the general manager of his grandfather’s NHL team, the Los Angeles Condors, Théo is dying to prove to the rest of his family—especially the brother who betrayed him—that he’s just as successful as the rest of them. If only Théo had a gorgeous woman on his arm to complete the picture. . . .

Lacey Olson needs to get out of Las Vegas right now, thanks to her no-good, crooked brother. When a handsome stranger who’s out partying with friends comes to her rescue in the cocktail lounge where she works, they strike up a conversation that leads to a crazy plan: her leaving with Théo for L.A. tomorrow. A few drinks later, the idea gets even crazier: a quickie marriage that works for both of them.

But back in California, Lacey immediately turns Théo’s precise, well-ordered life into one big beach party. And before long, she’s tempting him with her smart mouth, sexy body, and sunny charm. The last thing Théo needs is a real relationship to distract him. Because he only plays to win. . . .

3.5 Stars

I'm a fan of Kelly Jamieson's hockey romances, so when I saw that she was releasing a new series it's safe to say I was intrigued and quite eager to read Play to Win. 

The Wynn family is large, complex and completely dysfunctional.  There is so much jealousy, anger, hurt and betrayal that revolves around the various members of this family, not to mention their competitive natures it's sure to be an interesting series. 

 What starts as a marriage of convenience between two opposites, was quite different to the hockey story I was expecting. 

Theo Wynn is a former NHL player, so he buff and brawny, but also a bit of a nerd.  He's quite the contradiction and has a point to prove to his family, in particular his younger brother.  I really liked his drive, intelligence and determination. 

Lacey is Theo's opposite whilst he organised and goal orientated, she's more flighty and free spirted but still very honest which I really liked. 

With all the drama and large family, it took me a while to figure out how the characters fit in and are connected, but now i'm quite intrigued by this dysfunctional dynastic family, and look forward to reading the next Wynn Hockey title. 

Trust The Push - Kaylee Ryan - Release Blitz

Title: Trust the Push
Author: Kaylee Ryan
Genre: New Adult Romance
Release Date: March 19, 2019

I’m making strides in the world of dirt late model racing.  With back to back championships under my belt, I’m determined to win a third and be the youngest driver in history to do so.  I’m going to make it happen my career is my focus.  That is until the ultimate distraction in the form of a redheaded bombshell drops into my life.

I know nothing about racing, but when my boss comes to me with a special assignment, I take it.  Now, here I am traveling from city to city engrossed in this new world.  I never would have dreamed that this project would lead me to new friendships and ultimately finding love.

We made a deal, our time together would expire, and we would part ways.  The only problem with that is I’m not so sure that’s what I want anymore. She’s pushing at my walls, and I’m trusting her, letting them fall.

It’s a shame we put an end date on our time together.  I knew I would fall for him, but I never dreamed that those feelings would run this deep.  The plan was to walk away, that’s what we agreed to, it’s just going to be harder than I thought.  I need a new plan one that helps me move on without him.




4 Stars 

Every time I pick anything written by Kaylee Ryan I know I'm in for a emotional and heart warming read.  Kaylee's books are generally low in drama and angst, and that is the case with Blaine and Aubree's story. 

Blaine is a race driver, who drives dirt late model racers.  As I'm an Australia, and never heard of this type of racing, I had no idea what this was (thanks google).   Blaine can be quite cocky, arrogant, stubborn and egotistical, but underneath all the bluster is a really big heart.  He's determined and driven and has very high standards and goals for himself, and the last thing he wants is a romantic entanglement to get in the way of his plans. 

Aubree is hard working, strong, independent, and brave, yet at times quite naïve, and shy.  She struggles to form relationships after surviving a painful childhood, she doesn't give her trust easily.  

What starts as an enemies to lovers romance becomes a heartfelt story, that family is what you make it. The sexual tension and chemistry that Aubree and Blaine share is undeniable, and I adored the side characters. 

Another lovely, sweet and endearing story from Kaylee Ryan, that's perfect to escape into for an afternoon or evening. I will be eagerly awaiting her next release!

release blitz banner.jpg

With a Hitch, an all-new smart and sexy standalone sports romance by RC Boldt is live!


She’s playing it safe. He’s playing for keeps.

Growing up in the foster system, I learned the hard way that lasting love doesn't always come easy. Dating in the modern era can be daunting; the bar scene and dating apps leave you wondering if there's any hope in sight.
That's where I come in. Helping you break the “swipe-right” cycle, I’m dedicated to matching you with the love of your life.
Finding Mrs. Right for Dax Kendrick should be a piece of cake. Except nothing about this man is simple.

The NFL has given me more than I ever imagined—a roof over my head, food on the table, and a chance to provide for the family who sacrificed everything while I chased my dreams.
Maintaining a squeaky-clean image for my sponsors when my paycheck and the fruits of my endorsements are all the women want is a hefty challenge.
I’d nearly given up when I hired Darcy Cole. Yet the more I’m around her, the less I care about finding my perfect match.
Because it might be right in front of me.

Fleeting by Carrie Aarons

Available Now | Nash Brothers, #1 

Presley McDaniel lives her life from moment to moment.

Making permanent decisions means obligation, and that would force her to stop being the family disappointment. Waitress, fitness instructor, dog walker … you name the hourly job and she’s probably held the position.

But when her grandmother can no longer run her book shop in Fawn Hill, a town so small it barely has its own zip code, Presley steps up to help.

The move from bustling city to green pastures may be exactly what she needs to sort out her life. But she didn’t ask for that happy ending to include a gorgeous veterinarian with an all-American smile and a penchant for snuggling puppies. The good doctor is reliable, responsible, and just the kind of man Presley has always avoided.

Love and commitment are predictable.

So why, the moment she lays eyes on him, are they all she wants?

Keaton Nash has never questioned his steady path.

His brothers may tease him about settling into his father’s passed-down role of small town veterinarian, but Keaton has never minded his rural roots. And after tragedy struck two years ago, he has a duty as the eldest Nash man to look after his family.

What he doesn’t need is the sexy, flighty stranger who shows up in town and gets his broken heart beating again. Presley McDaniel is a distraction, a red-headed temptation that is the definition of a bad idea.

He’s barely recovered from the love who left him to chase bigger dreams, and this woman is bound to do the same.

Except for the first time ever, he wants to abandon stability.

She makes him want to be reckless.

3.5 Stars 

Fleeting, is the first title in The Nash Brothers series, and features Presley McDaniel and Keaton Nash. 

I love an opposites attract romance, and this pair are quite different.  Presley is a city girl, whilst Keaton is born and raised in the small town of Fawn Hill.  They both suffer from demons for different reasons, and there is quite a push and pull between them, but overall the chemistry they share is undeniable. 

Presley never intends for her visit to Fawn Hill to be anything but short and sweet, she doesn't form long lasting relationship, and despite her age hasn't committed to a career path.  In some ways she comes across as a bit immature, but I did enjoy seeing her grow as a character over the course of this title. 

Keaton is her opposite he's the back bone of his family, and community.  He steps up to every family expectation, and is incredilby sweet and charming.  For the most part he's confident and self assured, except when he's dealing with Presley, then he becomes shy and stumbles over his words. 

I found myself quite intrigued by the other Nash brother's who aren't quite as sweet as their eldest brother and I look forward to discovering their stories.

5 Stars 

After the conclusion to Motion, I was incredibly eager for more of Mona and Abram.  

Apart from the prologue, Space takes place two years after the events of Motion. 

The main difference with this title is that it's told in a dual point of view and readers get a glimpse into not only Mona, but also Abram's inner most thoughts and feelings. 

Mona broke Abram's trust with her deception, lies, and half truths.  Despite the fact that they both fell hard and fast in the little amount of time they spent with each other, he's hurt, betrayed and angry and must come to terms with the fact that he wants to discover if what they had was real.  He doesn't know if he should trust his feelings to know if what he felt was real or fabricated. 

The chemistry and attraction between this pair is undeniable and their story is angsty and emotional, broken up with moments of Penny's signature humor. 

I adored Space and now I will be eagerly awaiting the release of Time for the conclusion to their story!

“Hi—hello,” she said, stepping forward but not out of the way, drawing my attention.

She was still staring at me, her face still pale, but her eyes had turned searching instead of stunned.

“I—” She stopped herself, swallowing, her gaze dropping to the front of my coat, a cute little frown furrowing her eyebrows. In the next moment, she was pulling off the glove of her right hand. Abruptly, she shoved the ungloved fingers toward me, returning her eyes to mine. “I’m Mona.”

I suppressed my disbelief at her small action before it could break my outward mask of calm. I wasn’t calm. Just to be clear, I was the opposite of calm.

The fact that she was introducing herself to me now meant that she thought I was too stupid to figure out her lies over the last two-and-a-half-fucking years. She was arguably one of the smartest people in the world, after all. To her, people like me must seem like housebroken pets. So it shouldn’t have surprised me. But it did. The tension and tightness around my ribs reappeared, squeezing uncomfortably.

Dropping my attention to her bare hand, I pressed my lips into a tighter line, dismissing the way my pulse jumped at the sight of her wrist, the olive tone of her skin under the yellow string lights overhead. Glaring at her outstretched offering, I considered telling her to go to hell.

I considered it, but I wouldn’t.

I didn’t trust myself to speak, that was reason number one.

The other reason was harder to explain, or use as a justification, or admit to myself. Staring at her hand, I braced against a sudden flare of hunger. She might consider me a lower life-form, but that didn’t change the fact that I wanted to touch her. I wanted to touch her more than I wanted to tell her to go to hell, and that was fucking pitiful.

But there it was.

Acting on the compulsion, I lifted my right hand and tugged off the ski glove, sliding my warm palm against her much colder one. Her hand felt good in my hand, the right weight, the right size, the right texture, and I inhaled freezing air.

Mona also seemed to suck in a slow but expansive breath as our hands touched, held. This brought my eyes back to hers in time to see her lashes flutter. Pink colored her previously pale cheeks. The sound of the wailing wind, the sting of the air and frost momentarily melted away, leaving just her, her soft skin warming against mine, her beautiful face filling my vision.

So beautiful.

She really was. She was stunning. I hated that she was still so beautiful to me.
