I Knead You Tonight - Teagan Hunter

I hate Drew Woods, and she hates me. 

Even so, I’m not the cold jerk most make me out to be, and I have no problem moving the single mom and her baby into my home. I do, however, draw a line when it comes to acting on the way her loose lips make me feel.


She’s too mouthy, too prying, and her curves are way too distracting.

I might have lost my way after a nearly fatal car accident, but I’m not stupid. Giving in to Drew would be a short-lived fix for this pain I’m saddled with, and I knead something permanent.

I’d be insane to think what we have could be anything other than temporary…right?

I Knead You Tonight is an enemies to lovers romance.  Drew and Winston are like oil and water, but every time they are in the same space their chemistry is undeniable.  As they say there is a fine line between love and hate. 

Drew is strong, resilient, sassy and sarcastic.  She's incredibly hard working and has a tendency to say exactly what is on her mind, but is struggling as a single mother to make ends meet. 

Winston is a complex hero, whilst grumpy, lazing and not appearing to have a care in the world, he has his own issues and when you see him interact with Drew and Ryker you see his huge caring and loving heart. 

Whilst quite different this pair are also quite similar in that they both are incredibly headstrong and stubborn, and don't like to let anyone help them. 

Their banter is fun, flirty, antagonistic, but most of all full of moments of humor. 

I thoroughly enjoyed the first title in this series, but this pair stole my heart and I hope we see more of these endearing and fun characters in future titles.

What do you do when the town golden boy, who never noticed you in high school, decides to make a play for your heart?

For Minka Braxton, high school has been anything but easy. After a humiliating scandal sophomore year, she's avoided the social scene and anything having to do with boys, especially of the popular variety. But with senior year approaching, Minka decides it's time to take life back into her own hands. That is, until Owen Axel, the type of guy she's always avoided, decides he wants her in his hands.

Owen Axel is the definition of popular. Good looks, all-star worthy pitching arm and a former pro-athlete father make him Mitchum's town God. Returning from college for the summer, his plan is simple. Beach, booze, and beautiful girls. But one look at Minka Braxton and he knows what he wants. He just doesn't count on her not wanting him.

As the summer unfolds, both must decide how much to reveal, how deep they should fall, and what might happen if they strike out.


After a lifetime of neglect and sorrow, Miles Farriston has hit rock bottom after his lying ex-girlfriend proves that no one in his life sticks around. On the outs with his friends, in jeopardy of losing his baseball career and this close to getting kicked out of Kappa Eta Sigma, Miles is forced to compete in the Greek Life dance competition. What he didn't bank on was getting bright, cheery Chloe Trabucco as a partner.

Ballet, friends and her sorority. The only three things Chloe Trabucco wants to focus on and excel at. So when she is asked to compete, as a freshman, in the popular Greek dance competition, she couldn't be happier. That is, until she learns Miles is her partner. The same Miles she's had a huge crush on for half of her life, and the same guy who made it clear more than a year ago that he wants nothing to do with her.

Her positivity and patience annoy him. His attitude and anger finally drive her to the breaking point. Can they hit a home run, both on and off the dance floor, or will they go down swinging?


Kelsey O'Brien is the definition of a free spirit. She goes where she wants, when she wants, and takes to bed who she wants. And when she arrives back at Grover University after eight months on an African animal preserve, it’s her newly hunky best friend that has caught her eye. As their friendship turns physical, Kelsey begins to form feelings she swore she'd never have for anyone. But when the past she's not ready to face finds her, she must make a decision whether to stop running, or confront the truth.

The first time Clint Bellows laid eyes on Kelsey, he fell hard. Too bad she looked right through him. A year and countless hours in the gym later, she's back and hardly recognizes him and his new body. After a drunken encounter takes them over the line of friendship, Clint agrees to Kelsey's proposal of a benefits-added relationship. Only he's playing for keeps, and is willing to round all of the bases trying to score the self-proclaimed gypsy.

She's running from her demons. He's committed to winning her over. Can he catch her in time, or will she be out of his grasp before he can blink?

Power Play -- December 31st

Universal --

You’ve known Harper Allen and Jakob Titov since you met them in Taking Shots. You know their story already, right? Ha! You only think you do. In One-Timer, they’ll tell it for themselves.

Harper has been hurt so many times, and she has no interest in anything more than a one-time thing, but Jakob Titov has other ideas.

He is looking for his forever. He has his sights set on a girl who is so good at blocking his attempts, she could be a star goalie in the NHL. Jakob is persistent, though, and he knows what he wants: Harper—forever. together, he knows they’ll make one hell of a team.

The last twenty years have been even better than they could have dreamed. But when their daughter comes home, informing them she’s giving up everything for a boy, they know it’s past time to tell the truth about the shutout they scored all those years ago to get where they are.

It wasn’t easy. But sometimes, that one-time thing leads to a fairy-tale kind of ending.

Posey Adler is coming home. After a devastating journey for what she mistakenly thought was true love, she is saying to hell with men and love forever. As the Nashville Assassins’s new assistant coach for special teams, Posey is ready to focus on her job and have the attention on her for a change. She’s been haunted by her place in her sister’s shadow, but this is her chance to shine and force her family to take notice. But in order to make a name for herself, she’s going to have to go toe-to-toe with her team’s leading power play scorer.

Boon Hoenes lives for special teams. The power play is his favorite thing about the game. He loves having that advantage over his opponent. And most of the time, it’s his quick thinking that sends the puck to the back of the goal when he’s on the ice. Off the ice, however, no amount of quick thinking prepared his heart for being dumped by his college sweetheart. Boon has sworn off women, but when Posey Adler comes onto his ice—and kicks him off his beloved power play—he decides she’s one woman he doesn’t want to swear off.

They’ve both been hurt, but instead of going in for the penalty kill, Boon is ready to convince Posey their hearts are the secret to how they’ll win.

How they’ll score the ultimate goal.

A forever kind of love.

A Lie for A Lie is the first title in Helena Hunting, All In series.  I adored her Pucked series, and couldn't wait to dive into a new hockey series and this title did not disappoint. 

Fate put this pair in each other's path not once, but twice.  What ensues is a sweet, sexy, and fun second chance romance. 

Lainey is sweet, and kind, yet also kind of na├»ve.  She's very intelligent, passionate and strong and shouldn't be underestimated despite some of the quirks of her character. 

RJ or Rook is a kind, caring and protective hero.  A reformed player he's sweet, charming, and thoughtful, and has plenty of determination and drive when it comes to proving his worth and character to Lainey. 

The banter and interactions are fun, flirtatious and has the signature humor that I've come to expect from Helena's books.

If you're a fan of the Pucked series, you will love that several past favourites make a cameo appearance throughout this title. 

I adored Lainey and RJ's story and cannot wait for the next addition to the All In series.

In Sheila Kell’s thrilling novel of deception and second chances, two operatives embark on a dangerous journey that will test them as agents, friends, and lovers.

Time and distance hasn’t impacted Ken “Boss” Patrick’s love for Samantha “Sugar” Milton. When faced with the chance to move them from friends to lovers, forces out of his control make the stakes impossibly high. His mission to win her heart becomes a frantic task to save both of their lives.

EVENING SHADOWS is the first book in the Agents of H I S romantic suspense series. Agents of H I S is a spin-off series of the original award-winning H I S series. Just like in the H I S series, each Agents of H I S novel is a standalone novel.

Amazon UK: 

I love Sheila Kell’s Hamilton Investigation and Security series, and was eager to read the first title in the spin off series, Agents of His featuring Ken and Samantha.   Evening Shadows can easily be read as a standalone, although I highly recommend the HIS series as well.

If you love a title full of action, intrigue, danger, suspense, drama and sexual tension, then Evening Shadows may just be the book for you.

Ken is a former Army Ranger, and team leader for HIS.  He’s kind, caring, and protective and has battles with demons and choices he made in the past.

Samantha ‘Sam’ is independent, strong and resilient.  This sharpshooter can easily stand her ground with the men of HIS!

This title is full of twists and turns and I was completely captivated from start to finish and cannot wait for the next installment in the Agents of HIS series.

Falling For My Brother's Best Friend - Piper Rayne

Let’s say you’re an independent, self-sufficient woman who runs the family company and you find yourself falling for your little brother’s best friend. Now, more than ever, you need to count all the reasons why you need to abandon falling.

Abandon Falling #1 – He’s a womanizer. Hasn’t had a serious relationship a day in his life and changes women more often than he changes his sheets.

Abandon Falling #2 – He’s never serious. He cracks one-liners, mostly at your expense.

Abandon Falling #3 – When things go wrong, he seems unfazed and always remains in control. It’s so annoying.

Abandon Falling #4 – He has tattoos. Lots of them. Everywhere. Not to mention, he owns a tattoo parlor. (Damn it! Why doesn’t that sound like a bad thing anymore?)

Abandon Falling #5 – There’s a growing list of how different you two are. You can’t get along for fifteen minutes—a lifetime together would land one of you in prison.

Keep repeating those reasons and drown yourself in work. Pretend you don’t notice his good qualities or how enticing he looks without a shirt, and do not, I repeat, do not agree to live with the man while your place is being repaired from flood damage.

Trust me, even the strongest of us can only forego temptation for so long.

I adore the Lake Starlight and The Baileys and I couldn’t wait to read Savannah and Liam’s story.  On the surface this pair appear to be like oil and water, but there’s more than meets the eye.  

Liam is the best friend to Savannah’s two younger brother’s.  He’s the tattooed bad boy who has a habit of being involved in the Bailey twins shenanigans.  Under the tattooed exterior lies a heart of gold.  He’s kind, caring, and compassionate.

Savannah is five years Liam’s senior.  She’s strong, successful, organized and reliable, if not a tad on the boring side.  All her siblings have a tendency of turning to her for everything they need, and really kind of use her kindness and loyalty against her, as she has great difficulty in saying no.

The chemistry between this pair is undeniable, and I loved not only their interactions, which are full of heat and steam, but also with the various Bailey family members.  Grandma Dori once again steals the show with her master manipulations and meddling.

I will be eagerly awaiting the next release in The Bailey series, and cannot wait to see the remaining siblings find their other half.
