Switch Hitter - Sara Ney - Cover Reveal

I knew something was wrong the second she walked in the door tonight; I just couldn’t put my finger on what it was.

Same hair color.

Same legs.

Same face.

Except…I look harder.

At the small dimple beneath her lip that wasn’t there the last time we went out. And her laugh—that laugh isn’t as loud.

This isn’t the girl I’ve gone out with the past few weeks.

It’s her twin sister, and they’ve switched places on me.

Only I’m not quite ready to let them switch back.

Long Shot - Kelly Jamieson - Review

A haunted beauty inspires a Navy SEAL turned playboy bar owner to change his ways in this tender and sensual novel from the bestselling author of Hot Shot and the Heller Brothers series.

Waitressing at a tequila bar on the beach in sunny San Diego may not be what Reece Kirkwell wants to do forever, but for now it’s perfect—other than the flashbacks to the tragedy she caused in Boston. And the fact that one of her bosses is a domineering, first-class manwhore who’s as stubborn as he is sexy. If he’d just listen to her, she could double his business. But it would also mean getting close to someone, and that’s a risk she can’t afford.

Cade Hardy’s partners at Conquistadors are like his brothers, but he’s the money man trying to keep them all afloat. To blow off steam, he’s been sleeping around a little. The last thing he needs is business advice from their crazy-hot new waitress. Cade can’t figure Reece out. She’s smarter than she lets on, and she doesn’t hide her disgust for his active sex life. But after he recognizes her PTSD symptoms, Cade is determined to save her . . . unless she saves him first.


Cade checked his watch. “Reese should be here soon.”
“Just don’t freak out on her,” Beck said, crossing his arms.
“I’m not going to freak out on her. I’m going to fire her.”
“What? No!” Beck gaped at him.
“Hold up,” Marco said, waving his hands. “Why do you want to fire her?”
“She’s been lying to us!”
Marco and Beck exchanged looks. “Well . . . she’s been a little deceptive . . . but I don’t know about lying,” Marco said. “Why don’t you just talk to her and find out what’s going on?”
“She actually came up with some pretty fantastic stuff,” Beck said. “I don’t think we should fire her. I think we should promote her.”
“What?” Now Cade stared openmouthed. “What the actual fuck?”
“I’m serious. Hey, do you want me to talk to her? Or Marco?”
Cade narrowed his eyes. “No.”
“Maybe we should be here, though,” Marco said.
Jesus, what did they think he was going to do? “I can do it. I hired her. I’ll deal with it.”
“Okay. But let me be clear on this.” Marco leaned forward, shoving his face right in Cade’s. “Do not fire her.”
Cade’s muscles tensed all over again. He was so fucking pissed he could spit bullets.
Why? He never got angry like this. He was in control of his emotions at all times. It was Reese who did this to him. He took a deep breath. “Fine,” he said through clenched teeth. “I won’t fire her . . . right now.”
Beck and Marco wore identical looks of frustrated annoyance. The three of them stood glaring at each other for a long moment in a tense standoff. “Okay,” Beck said finally.
Beck and Marco left and Cade threw himself down into his chair.
Jesus. He hadn’t even had to ask Sid how long this had been going on. It was pretty obvious. He’d known there was something weird happening, when Sid had suddenly come up with those great ideas, but he’d been too lazy to put it all together. Lazy. Stupid. Blind. Or maybe in denial that the cook they’d been on the verge of firing hadn’t really come through after all.
A soft knock on the open door had him lifting his head.
She stood in the doorway, smiling faintly. She was dressed for work in another black dress, this one sleeveless with a bunch of pleats that wrapped around her slender body. It, too, showed off her amazing legs, and today she wore a pair of pointy-toed shoes with a low but spiky heel. Her bright hair had been pulled up into a bunch of loops on the back of her head with wispy pieces hanging out.
“Come in,” he said gruffly, trying to rein in his anger. He gestured at another chair.
She advanced into the room and perched on the edge of the chair. Her fingers went to the hem of her dress and rubbed it. Fingers that were shaking. Just a bit.
“What the everloving fuck have you been playing around at?” he demanded. Then he closed his eyes. This wasn’t how you talked to an employee.
On some level, he recognized that his anger was way out of proportion to the incident.
“What are you talking about?”
He slashed a hand through the air. “No more lies. You’re busted. Sid confessed everything.”
“Oh.” She said the word on a soft exhalation. “Damn.”
“Yeah. Damn.”
She met his eyes. “It was my doing. Don’t be angry at Sid. He’s trying his best.”
Her defense of Sid and acceptance of responsibility took him aback. For a few seconds. “How the hell . . . what were you thinking . . . why?” he yelled.
Her eyes flashed and she pressed her lips together. “I could see how he was struggling. And the food . . . well, you know how I felt about the food.”
Oh, yeah. He did. Even now she didn’t bother to hide her distaste.
“Look, it’s not like I was taking cash out of the register or skimming credit card numbers from the customers, for the love of Godfrey. We weren’t hurting anything by doing what we did. In fact . . .” She jutted her chin at him. “Even you have to admit guests liked the food.”
“That’s not the point.”
“Then what the hell is the point?” she demanded. She sat forward, her cheeks now flushed peach, eyes sparkling. “You wanted to make your food better. I was trying to help. It didn’t interfere with my waitressing, if that’s what you’re worried about.”
He frowned. “I never thought that.”
“Then what are you so pissed off about? Oh wait, I know. Because this wasn’t your idea. Because you weren’t in control.”
His head jerked back.
“Well, I’m sorry I went behind your back. I know it wasn’t honest. I didn’t mean to cause problems. Just don’t . . . I don’t want Sid to be in trouble about this, because it was my doing.” She jumped to her feet. “I’ll get my things and leave.”
“No!” He pushed up, too, then laid his hands on the desk, leaning forward. “No. Sit down.”
She didn’t move for a few seconds, holding his gaze with her own fierce stare.
Jesus. For some reason, he was turned on. Hot need punched his lower belly. She
was stunning with her passion and confidence and honesty. Then she turned and started to walk away.
No fucking way.
He vaulted over the desk and grabbed her arm, spinning her around.
She gasped, eyes big. His gaze dropped to her mouth . . . her full lips shiny and parted . . . fuck, he wanted to taste her and feel those lips. Tension shimmered around them, the temperature in the office rising several lustful degrees. Her breasts lifted and fell with her quick respirations and he tried not to look there but damn, it was hard not to, and he wanted to pull her closer so he could feel those sweet, soft tits pressed against him.
“Let me go.” Her voice came out low and husky.
He was losing his goddamn mind. This was a sexual harassment suit waiting to happen. But for some reason he didn’t fucking care. “You’re not leaving.”
Their eyes met again and the air around them crackled.
“Why?” she demanded. “You’re obviously angry. I lied to you. That’s grounds for termination.” She glared. “You know you want to fire me.”
He nearly groaned. “You have no idea what I want to do to you.”
Her eyes widened again. Tension arced between them. His muscles bunched and jumped, his heart thudding. When her lips parted again, he knew . . . she did know what he wanted to do to her. And she wanted it, too.
Drawn to her like a magnet, he bent his head. He breathed in that scent he now knew, spiced vanilla and pear. Heat pulsed through his veins.
He couldn’t screw this up.

“Shit.” He relaxed his grip, but then probably made things worse by reaching for her other arm. Holding her like that, his grip gentler, he stared down into her face. “You make me crazy, Reese.”
Her eyelashes fluttered and her pulse flickered at her throat. Her face now wore a
glowing flush of color and her eyelids dropped to half mast. “I know.”
He choked on a laugh, and lowered his forehead to touch hers. “Sometimes I think you try to make me crazy.”
“It’s pretty easy. Control freak.”
            “Shit,” he murmured. “You know what buttons to push.”
“I didn’t do this to make you crazy. I swear.”
He sighed. “I believe you.” He moved back, still holding her arms, and he gave her a
searching look. Then he eased her back toward the chair and down into it. “Sit.”
“Yes, sir.”
His lips twitched. “That’s much better.”

4 Stars

Long Shot is the third and final title in the Last Shot series, and it’s an enemies to lovers romance featuring Cade and Reese.  Although you could read this title as a standalone, I would recommend reading the previous titles in the series first. 

Cade and two of his former SEAL buddies, own and manage a tequila bar named conquistadors.  Each of the trio has their own area of expertise and for Cade, that is being the brains behind the business.   He’s most at home in his office with his spreadsheets and plans for the business.  Cade also has a reputation with the ladies, can be quite stubborn and doesn’t like to be told what to do, but in saying that he can also be quite supportive, caring and protective.  

Reese is working as a waitress, whilst she sorts out her life, and attempting to outrun her past.  She’s very vocal about the quality of the food on the menu, or lack thereof.  I found her characters to be very endearing.  She’s a survivor, strong, resilient and outspoken despite being slightly damaged.  

Long Shot is a fast paced, well written story.  The banter this pair share is fun, flirtatious, and they have a tendency to butt heads so quite often it’s also argumentative.  Both characters are hardworking, genuine, complex and endearing.   The sexual tension between Cade and Reese just oozes off the page, and the attraction is undeniable, the heat generated between this pair is quite combustible. 

I quite enjoyed this ending to the Last Shot series, and there were a few twists and  turns, that I didn’t anticipate. 

USA Today bestselling author Kelly Jamieson is the author of more than thirty contemporary romance novels. She’s a married mother of two who lives a very ordinary life outside of her imagination. She likes coffee (black), wine (mostly white), and shoes (high!). She also loves watching hockey.

Now a local celebrity, Nolan never wants for female companionship. But he never gets too close. And he damn sure never lets them see the man—or the pain—behind the jokes.
Then a one-night stand changes everything.

Career-focused, goal-oriented, and buttoned-down accountant Shelby Drake isn’t the kind of woman who’d usually catch Nolan’s attention, but her soft mouth, hidden curves, and deep sensuality blow his mind. And after only one taste, he wants more.
But Shelby wants nothing more to do with him. And now the radio playboy is on a sensual mission to convince her that opposites really do attract.

4.5 Stars

Start Me Up is the fourth title in the Man of The Month series, and features Nolan Wood and Shelby Drake, an unlikely pairing of opposites. 

Shelby is a straight laced, conservative accountant.  She's quite introverted, hard working, and is very goal orientated.  Nolan on the other hand is easy going, laid back and fun.  He's a hot, and sexy radio DJ who has hidden depths, and uses humor as a defense mechanism at times, and hides from the baggage of his past.  When he wants something in this case Shelby he's quite determined and not going to give up without reaching his own goals.

Whilst a quick, and engaging read this title is packed full of heat, heart and humor and will have you laughing out loud, at some of the humor laced one liners.  The banter is incredibly fun and flirtatious and the connection and chemistry this pair share is undeniable.  There are a few twists and turns that I didn't anticipate, but kept me enthralled and glued to my kindle to the very end.

Being the fourth title that I have read in this series, I've got to say they just keep getting better, and I cannot wait for Tyree's story next!

Whiskey Rebellion - Toni Aleo - Release Blitz


An emotional can't-miss romance, Whiskey Rebellion from New York Times Bestselling Author Toni Aleo is AVAILABLE NOW!


I have to make the pain stop.

I want to feel alive, and I do when I’m drinking and partying the way I should have when I was a teen. Instead, back then, I was preparing to become the Whiskey Princess, a role assigned to me from birth.

A lady never drinks to the point of blacking out, nor does she go home with men she meets in bars. But I went home with him…Jackson.

He was more than just a one-night stand, but I learned that a wee bit late and he was gone. Or so I thought.

For when I return home, Jackson is there, and he finds out very quickly who I am.

Problem is, I’m not sure that I’ve ever known who I really am.


I can tell by looking into her blue depths that she’s absolute trouble, but I have to have her. It’s only for one night. Some fun, and I’ll be on my way. My time here is done, and I’m ready to move on to my next adventure.

What I don’t realize at the time is that she is my next adventure.

Lena excites me. She blows my mind. And her brogue? It has me in knots. I don’t even care about the rumors that surround her.

She’s hurting. I want to help her, but then my time is up.

Can I leave her?

I have to leave. I have no choice.

But I love her.




4 Stars

Whiskey Rebellion is the third title in the Taking Risks series.  Whilst the first two titles in the series focus on Declan O’Callaghan, this title features his younger sister Lena.  Whilst I would recommend reading the previous titles, as this title follows where the timeline of events left off, you could read Whiskey Rebellion as a standalone. 

Lena O’Callaghan is desperately trying to out run her past, and her identity and duties expected of the Whiskey Princess.  Damaged and hurt, Lena is desperate to feel alive, but her behaviours are unhealthy and it leads to a downward spiral.  Although she’s rebellious, lost and lonely, she’s a survivor and incredibly strong, and resilient.  I loved that she’s not the quiet, insipid girl from the previous titles, and has a real backbone and isn’t afraid to fight for what she wants.

Jackson is a gypsy, never staying in one place too long, he’s travelling the world.  This pair meet by chance, and miscommunications and misunderstanding result in them not parting in the best of ways.  But fate has other plans for this pair and their paths once again cross and brings them back together.  Jackson is very endearing being strong, affectionate, supportive, caring and loyal.

The chemistry between Lena and Jackson is very hot and steamy, and incredibly intense. They are both slightly damaged and a little bit broken, trying to outrun the demons of their past.  Both are very like-able characters, fallible and realistic.

Lena and Jackson’s tale is an emotional journey of self-discovery, and overcoming the demons of their past.  I found this tale to be engaging and quite enjoyed revisiting Ireland and becoming reacquainted with so many of the characters who appeared in the previous titles.

Whiskey Prince

Becoming the Whiskey Princess

Take a risk.
Do something drastic.
Fall in love.

My name is Toni Aleo and I’m a total dork.

I am a wife, mother of two and a bulldog, and also a hopeless romantic.

I am the biggest Shea Weber fan ever, and can be found during hockey season with my nose pressed against the Bridgestone Arena’s glass, watching my Nashville Predators play!
When my nose isn’t pressed against the glass, I enjoy going to my husband and son’s hockey games, my daughter’s dance competition, hanging with my best friends, taking pictures, scrapbooking, and reading the latest romance novel.

I have a slight Disney and Harry Potter obsession, I love things that sparkle, I love the color pink, I might have been a Disney Princess in a past life… probably Belle.
… and did I mention I love hockey?
