Butterfly Save - Mignon Mykel



 It’s been one hell of a year.


If I’m being honest, it’s been one hell of a life. 

For years my worth has been tied up in one of two things: goaltender for the San Diego Enforcers, and husband—then ex-husband—of the oldest MacTavish daughter.

Regret is a heavy thing and it’s weighing on me.

Now I’m retiring myself up to the wooded island my family called a second home growing up.

Getting away from the limelight.
Feeling closer to my roots.

I’m fully prepared to live out the rest of my life alone up here in seclusion.

And then I meet her. 
Timid. Cautious. And so damn beautiful.

I should stay away.
She doesn’t need my brand of baggage.
But damn if I can't help myself.

“The least you could have done was talk it over with me,” Caleb said as I sat in his office. I’d already packed up my things when my big brother called me into his personal four-walls.
He pulled open and shoved closed drawers; what he was looking for was beyond me. It wasn’t like he had anything in this office he needed to bring home.
Besides, he would be back in a couple of weeks, anyway.
Today was locker clean-out day.
A day where the players left items for auction and brought other things home. Most of us arrived in gym clothes and even Cael, who took a liking to slacks and dress shirts since becoming head coach, was in basketball shorts and a long sleeved, Enforcers-issued tee.
“Ace knew.” Ace was our youngest sister, Avery. She was a players’ agent and was in charge of both mine and Porter’s careers.
Speaking of Porter, he managed to get in and out this morning before Caleb even noticed him.
Lucky bastard.
“Of course, Ace knew. She was in charge of your contract. But I’m your coach.”
With my hands folded on my stomach, I shrugged, pulling off the bored look. Even brought my ankle up to rest on my knee for good measure. “You’d have tried to talk me into another season and I don’t have another in me.” I bounced my toes up and down as I waited, restless energy running through me.
I wanted to get out of here.
Board a plane and sit in economy.
Land in Chicago or Milwaukee—whichever got me there quickest, and in this case, would be Chicago—hop in a long-term rental, and drive the seven or so hours north until I hit the Apostle Islands.
“It just would have been nice to know before the rest of the country.”
And that right there was his issue.
My big brother was pouting because I announced my retirement during a post-game interview last night.
It wasn’t because he was a coach left in the dark.
No.
It was because he was my brother and once upon a time, we told each other everything.
But I wasn’t that eight year old kid anymore.

RIVER 

My life took an unexpected turn after an accident that left my hands damaged. Too damaged to continue my firefighting career. Lucky for me, a lifeline came in the form of a year prospecting for the Wounded Souls. My family was friends with the MC, so it took no time to say yes. Becoming a patch gave me more purpose. My injuries didn’t matter anymore because I was useful again. Fast forward five years and I was one of five members of a new Souls chapter. Now the enforcer at a new compound, I was far enough away from the malicious gossip that stained my family and, Willow and I were free to be together. Away from the watchful eye of her biker dad, and far enough away that I could get away with living the best of both worlds. Willow was mine during the week, her arms around me at night and I still managed a safe distance between her and my family. Keeping everyone separated was the best option. 

How wrong I was. 

WILLOW 

Growing up a MC princess wasn’t as good as it sounded. Not if you called being wrapped in cotton wool and having a plethora of leather clad alpha’s watching every move you made. So, when the opportunity to go help set up the new Souls chapter came my way, I jumped on it. I went to war with my dad and with some help from my mum, I found myself the new assistant to the Queenscliff chapter president. Life was finally mine to explore. River was finally mine to love. One problem though, River was hiding his true feelings from me. And, so much more. Why was he hiding me from his family? Why claim me and continue to find reasons to keep me away from the people most important to him? Add a disgruntled prospect to the mix and my life was suddenly a lot more complicated than cotton wool. 

If River couldn’t see how much I loved him, what the fudge was I fighting for?

Sweeper - Amy Daws


 


Sweeper by Amy Daws releases November 4!


 

The cocky footballer next door has some serious balls…

luckily, Daphney Clarke knows how to play.

 

Zander Williams is the hot new American determined to take European football by storm. His head is so big, it barely fits under his backwards hat. And when he’s recruited to one of the biggest up and coming clubs in London, he’s certain to make his name known.

 

Managing the building where they live is only one of Daphney’s many jobs. It’s why she has zero patience for the obnoxious American on the other side of the wall who makes the most ungodly noises and likes to answer his door in nothing but a pink tea towel.

 

Tensions build and after one steamy hallway kiss, neighbor wars quickly shifts into neighbors-with-benefits and that’s a battle they both intend to win.

 

But Daphney doesn’t know the real reason Zander is in London and now she’s stuck in the middle of a game she didn’t even know she was playing.

Change on the Fly - Maren Moore

 


Imagine being in love with your best friend's brother.

Then.. keeping it a secret for years.

Ridiculously charming, a total player and a hockey super star... Reed Davidson has been the boy next door who's had my heart for as long as I can remember.

He was the ultimate bad boy, and I was just his sister’s shy best friend.

But when Reed's world is suddenly flipped upside down and he gets custody of his nephew, I'm the only one who can help.

I shouldn’t have agreed to come on the road with them, but Reed wasn’t cut out to be a single dad and I knew he needed help.

I tried to hide my feelings for him, but the two of us, the cutest kid on the planet, and a long hockey season were a recipe for disaster.

Reed was used to getting everything he ever wanted, and this time... He wanted me.

Only now, the stakes are higher and my heart is the one on the line.

The Boss is the first title in the Men of Hidden Justice series, and this romantic suspense, was such a surprising read.

The characters are complex and layered.  Matteo is a protective, possessive, yet lethal alpha, and Evie is a strong, and resilient heroine who has a big heart.

This is a complicated story full of twists and turns, and equal parts suspense, drama, and romance.

I thoroughly enjoyed this story, and the undeniable chemistry and connection that lies between Matteo and Evie and look forward to future additions to the series.

Boyfriend - Sarina Bowen



 The hottest player on the Moo U hockey team hangs a flyer on the bulletin board, and I am spellbound:

Rent a boyfriend for the holiday. For $25, I will be your Thanksgiving date. I will talk hockey with your dad. I will bring your mother flowers. I will be polite, and wear a nicely ironed shirt…

Now everyone knows it’s a bad idea to introduce your long-time crush to your messed-up family. But I really do need a date for Thanksgiving, even if I’m not willing to say why. So I tear his phone number off of that flyer… and accidentally entangle our star defenseman in a ruse that neither of us can easily unwind.

Because Weston's family is even nuttier than mine. He needs a date, too, for the most uncomfortable holiday engagement party ever thrown.

There will be hors d'oeuvre. There will be faked PDA. And there will be pro-level awkwardness…

Boyfriend is a full-length stand-alone romance for Weston and Abbi!



Amazon: https://geni.us/Amazon-boyfriend








I wonder what Abbi is like. It doesn’t matter very much, of course. I haven’t agreed to marry her. It’s just one day of my life. And people fascinate me, so even if Abbi’s family is irritating as fuck, I probably won’t take it personally.

But I have a good feeling about Abbi herself. She’s local, which is interesting. Vermonters are pretty cool. They have a rugged mentality, and they rarely complain. And they’re usually hockey fans. What’s not to like about that?

The door opens, and I immediately lose my train of thought. I’m blinking at a pretty blond woman with shoulder-length hair. My first reaction is all hell yes and thank you, Jesus

Then I realize this is not just any woman. It’s the hot waitress from The Biscuit in the Basket. The one who remembers every order without writing it down. The one who always seems to know when we need something more, or when it’s time to drop the check.

The one with the kissable ivory neck and gray eyes that always make me a little stupid. I’ve never asked her out, because it’s rude to hit on a girl who’s just trying to get through her shift at work. But man, I’d like to. 

“Hi,” she says, frowning at me. “Wow. You’re wearing a tie.”

“Too much?” I ask, my hand flying to the knot of silk at my throat. “I could lose the tie.” And, heck, why stop there? If she asked me to lose my trousers, I’d do it. Anything for you, honey.

“No, you look very respectful. Thank you for doing this.”

I blink slowly. I can’t believe my luck. She’s my date? “You work at The Biscuit in the Basket,” I say stupidly. “But your name tag says Gail.”

She smiles. “That’s right. The lazy manager put the wrong name on it, and then wouldn’t redo it for me. But I’m glad you can recognize me without the uniform.”

“Well, sure. You look nice. Your hair is different. Fluffier. Wait. Is fluffy a good thing?” I babble.

She laughs suddenly. “Fluffy is fine. At work they make us wear those visor caps. Like we’re all golf caddies.”

I smile back at her and get a little lost for another moment. And her laugh is terrific. A little husky. I dig it.

“So, uh, are you ready to go?”

That’s when I realize I’m blocking her way out of her own door. “Yup, sorry,” I stammer, leaping to the side like a frisky goat. 

Oh, man. Nobody would call me Mr. Smooth right now, that’s for damn sure. I’m glad my teammates aren’t here to witness this. I’d never live it down. 

Abbi locks her door. “Where are you from, Weston? Is it too far to go home for Thanksgiving?”

“I’m from the eastern edge of Vermont. But I don’t have a car, and we have practice tomorrow anyway. Hey—does your family drink? I brought a bottle of wine.” I hold it up, along with a bouquet of flowers, too.

“That’s lovely of you,” she says. “I have a bottle in my car too. I find that where alcohol and my so-called family are concerned, more is more. Although I’m driving tonight, so I can’t drink.”

“Your so-called family?”

“Well, it’s complicated without being terribly interesting. But we’re going to my stepfather’s house. I mean, he used to be my stepfather and now he’s married to someone else.” 

“Your step-stepmother,” I say, recalling her text message.

“Right.” She leads me off the porch and down the walkway. “My car is just around the back. It won’t take us long to get there. You’ll be eating turkey dumplings in no time.”

“Sounds good. My body is, like, fifty percent wings and fries at this point. I’m sure you know that. I’m at your restaurant all the time.”

“Table number seventeen,” she says cheerfully. “The hockey table. Do you know that we prep a different portion of wings depending on whether you guys win or lose?”

“No, really? Why?”

“Because you eat more and get drunker on the nights you lose than on the nights you win.”

“Huh. That’s very scientific of you.”

She unlocks an elderly Honda Civic and opens the driver’s side door. “Last chance to back out.”

I wouldn’t dream of it. I have to remember how to be Mr. Smooth, though, and flirt properly with Abbi. Who knows? After a great meal, we could make this a night to remember. “I’m at your service,” I say, hoping it sounds a little sexy and not creepy. “Let’s get our turkey on.”

Huh. Mr. Smooth seems to be on vacation today.

I give myself a fifty-fifty shot at success. But I’ve faced worse odds. Game on.

 


Boyfriend is a sweet, sexy, and heartfelt fake relationship romance.  Honestly this trope isn’t one of my favourites, but Sarina Bowen is an automatic one click author for me, and I thoroughly enjoyed this new adult romance featuring Weston and Abbi.

Weston is a college hockey player, who is as confident on the ice as he is off it.  Even though he’s quite the ladies’ man, he’s also got major commitment phobia.  He could be cocky or egotistical, but is quite the gentleman and sweet, fun, caring and kind, and protective.

Abbi is an admirable young woman.  She’s incredibly strong, resilient, and hardworking and with the losses she’s endured, you just want her to find her happy ever after.

The chemistry between this pair is a little slow to build but their connection is steamy, and their banter is not only honest and real, but flirty and fun.

I couldn’t help but love this endearing pair with complicated family situations, and I was captivated by this story with equal parts, heat, heart and humour.  

All The Sauce - Toni Aleo

 


-- BRAND NEW IceCats Hockey Romance --



All the Sauce by Toni Aleo is available now!

https://geni.us/AllTheSauce

Available on All Platforms



Owen Adler has spent his whole life being half of a matched set. But when his twin brother Evan leaves hockey—and him—behind on the Carolina IceCats, Owen finds he has to skate a new path on his own.

Angie Paxton knows a lot about being on her own. She pushed Nashville, and the trauma she experienced there, to the back of her mind and started over in South Carolina. And though she’s blooming where she planted herself both academically and professionally, emotionally, she’s been struggling under the weight of her past.

Owen has had a thing for Angie since they were kids, but she would never give him the time of day. Now that they’re reconnecting as adults, they quickly find they want to spend all their days together. Angie is struggling to let go of the insecurities that plague her, but growing up Adler has made Owen an expert at getting what he wants. And for him, Angie is the only goal worth making.


All The Sauce is the fourth title in the Ice Cats series, and I’ve thoroughly enjoyed the previous books, but as a fan of the original Assassins series, I was incredibly eager to read this title as it featured Owen Adler ad Angie Paxton.

Angie and Owen’s story is incredibly well written, and emotional, and I was completely captivated from the very first chapter, it was one of those books that I just didn’t want to put down.

This pair are not only endearing, and well developed, but relatable. They both have their flaws and are slightly less than perfect, which for me makes them all the more enjoyable to read about.

Angie is the daughter of Lucy and Benji Paxton who featured in Rushing the Goal, and she’s intelligent, driven and dedicated to her role of working with athletes and their mental health. She has some insecurities, mostly regarding her weight, and is resilient and strong, dealing with a trauma from her past.

Owen is the son of Shea and Ellie Adler, who featured in Taking Shots, he’s a driven, dedicated and talented professional hockey player who is relentless in his pursuit of Angie.  He’s cocky, yet also charming, sweet, kind, and compassionate.

This title is equal parts heat, heart, and humour, with fabulous banter that is both witty and fun.

I loved the cameos from the previous generation of Assassins, and the characters who have appeared in the previous Ice Cats books and will be eagerly awaiting the next addition to this series.

Beyond The Game - Kaylee Ryan




 Paisley

 
One minute I’m sitting at the ballpark chatting with a handsome stranger, the next his lips are on mine and sparks are flying, while the whole world watches us reach first base on the kiss cam.
 
As the daughter of a former professional baseball player, I know all too well what it’s like living in front of the lens. Which is why I chose a career behind the scenes and away from the spotlight—that included my love life.
 
Post-kiss, I never expected to see Cameron Taylor again and certainly not playing for my team. I might want him more than my next breath, but I’m not willing to jeopardize either of our careers to make it to second base.
 
Cameron
 
A rare day of relaxing at the ballpark turns out to be so much more. I can’t take my eyes off the gorgeous brunette sitting next to me. The only thing hotter than her perfect pink lips is listening to her talk baseball.
 
Life throws me a curve ball when I get called up to the majors and Paisley Monroe is introduced to me as the team trainer. She’s unlike anyone I’ve ever met—beautiful, passionate, driven, and off-limits.
 
When the media goes into a frenzy over our relationship, the rules change. But the love I have for Paisley goes beyond my love of the game, I don’t need the kiss cam to tell the world that she’s mine. I can do that all on my own.
