Nothing or no one will keep them apart…

Kyler Kennedy is in the wind.

Shocked and upset, he has taken off on a solo mission—to track down his mom’s ex and demand answers.

Faye understands what it’s like to have your world turned upside down. Determined to support her boyfriend, she gives chase. Yet nothing could prepare her for the ugly truth. Ky has always been plagued with inner demons, and as he falls apart, Faye finally discovers what he’s been hiding from her—from everyone.

When serious accusations arise, Kyler’s future hangs in the balance. But Kennedys stick together in times of crisis, and they rally around him now.

At least there is nothing to prevent Faye and Ky from being together. They go public with their relationship, but not everyone is thrilled for them. Enemies reappear, and fresh battle lines are drawn, but Faye is ready to fight back.

No one is taking her new family from her.

Especially not a manipulative ex.

With time running out for Kyler, Faye takes matters into her own hands.

But when you play with fire, you risk getting burned.

Excerpt 8:
Faye
I press a quick kiss to Ky’s mouth, but he has other plans. Wrapping his arms firmly around my waist, he hauls me into his body as his lips claim my mouth. His tongue swirls around mine, and I’m dizzy with lust. Leaning me right back, my spine arches as he kisses the heck out of me. I dig my fingers into his shoulders, pulling him even closer. His arms hold me firmly around the waist, ensuring I don’t lose my balance. Heat from his body mingles with the spicy masculine scent that is pure Ky, and I’m lost in an alternate realm. One where it’s only him and me, and the way he’s holding me, kissing me, is the entire center of my world. When we finally come up for air, I’m struggling to breathe.
Kal slaps him on the back. “Marking your territory?” he quizzes with a grin.
“You forget I know most of these horn dogs. Just protecting my girl.” His dark stare is shamelessly domineering, and I stare back at him through dazed eyes. I’m still trying to return to earth after that incredible make-out session.
Rach loops her arm in mine while she peers up at Ky. “Which of those horn dogs would know how to kiss a girl like that?”
“I’m one of a kind,” he quips, with a smirk.
Her face drops. “Was afraid you were going to say that.”
I finally snap out of it. “Come on. Let’s get out there before he does that again and sends me into a coma.”

Blog Tour: Sexy Stranger by Kendall Ryan


Today is my stop during the blog tour for Sexy Stranger by Kendall Ryan! I share my review of this book with you and there are some teaser images as well.

Title: Sexy Stranger
Author: Kendall Ryan
Series: standalone
Rating: 3.5 stars
Genres: Contemporary Romance
Links:

Blurb:
From New York Times Bestselling Author Kendall Ryan comes a sexy and sizzling, enemies-to-lovers romp with bite.

He’s rude. Arrogant. And too hot to handle.

And she’s stranded with him for an entire week.

He knows the sexy stranger doesn’t belong in his small town, but he’s determined to keep her there. The second she opens her smart mouth, he wants to swap a whole lot more than insults with her.

She’s got a secret. But he’s got his own agenda.

Buckle up.

My Review:
Another fun, fast-paced, laugh-out-loud, sweet, sexy romance from Kendall Ryan.

Kendall has a really strong brand and I always know what to expect when I pick up one of her books. Sexy Stranger ticked all the usual boxes and it was a quick, entertaining read with a great HEA.

Luke Wilder owns and runs a whiskey brewing company with his brother and sister and he has lived a small town existence for most of his life. He had a promising football career and he went away to college but returned home after his father passed away, to run the family business with his twin, Duke (hardy, har. Luke and Duke are actually nicknames but it was funny!)

He has been burnt in love so when sexy stranger Charlotte rolls into town with her expensive car and her fiesty mouth, he has no interest in pursing the spark of attraction that ignites between them. Charlotte is on the run from those who seek to control her life and the last thing she wants is some redneck hothead pushing her buttons. Despite the fact our couple got off on the wrong foot, they soon make amends and quickly agree to a fling. Both know it can’t go anywhere because he is stuck there and she is leaving.

The banter was great between our couple and Luke was swoonworthy in the extreme. I enjoyed the setting of the book and the whiskey business was unique. I enjoyed watching Charlotte relax and let her hair down and the romance was electric. Kendall writes great romantic/sexy times.

An inability to properly communicate had the potential to rip our couple apart but all ended up in a good place.

The writing and pacing were solid and it was a thoroughly enjoyable read.

Actual 3.5 stars.

Thanks to the author and Inkslinger PR for providing an ARC of this book which I have voluntarily reviewed.

Cover Reveal: Loving Kalvin!

Today is the cover and blurb reveal for Loving Kalvin! Loving Kalvin is the fourth book in my Kennedy Boys series. Massive thanks to Fiona Jayde of Fiona Jayde media for the amazing covers and graphics she has created for this series. I hope you love them as much as I do!

Loving KalvinLoving Kalvin (The Kennedy Boys #4)
By Siobhan Davis
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Age category: Upper Young Adult/ New Adult
Release Date: July 2017

Blurb:
A second-chance romance from USA Today bestseller Siobhan Davis. Standalone with HEA and no cliffhanger.

Lana
I knew it would end in disaster, but I didn’t listen to reason. I didn’t care. Because I loved him so much.

Kalvin Kennedy ruled my heart.

Until he destroyed it.

Shattered it so completely that I became someone else. Someone I loathed. Someone who repeatedly lied to her loved ones.

So, I ran.

From him. From myself. Desperate to hide my new reality.

But I could only run so far.

When he reappears in my life, I’m terrified. Unbelievably scared of facing the consequences of my actions.

Never mind that I still love him and want him so badly—there’s too much at stake now.

How can I trust him with the biggest secret of all when he’s likely to rip my world apart again?

Kalvin
Lana was always far too good for me. Everyone knew it but her.

I tried to stay away, but I was weak.

And I hurt her.

Crushed her until she barely resembled herself. Forced her to follow a path she would never have willingly chosen.

And then she was gone.

And my world has never felt as empty, as lonely.

She begged me to stay away. Not to find her. To forget she ever existed.

But that’s like asking me to slice my heart in two and toss half aside.

I’ve never believed in fate, but when I rock up to the University of Florida, I’m ready to eat my words.

Because she’s here. Like I hoped she would be. And I’m determined to prove I deserve a second chance.

Excerpt:
Sweat rolled thickly down his neck, making his getup suffocating. The night was bleak and all-consuming as Brokk Foster looked to where he knew his best friend and Commander was hidden. Weeks of tactical planning and training had brought the soldiers of Black Dawn to this moment. The slight tremor in his hands was the only sign of how he was feeling. Brokk pressed himself closer to the mossy ground, breathing in the sweet smell of dewy grass. A snap of twigs and the group went rigid, frozen in the shadows. Laughter filled the forest air as four men with blood-red sashes of the guards draped brazenly across their chests walked into view a few hundred yards away. They quipped at each other, totally relaxed, their voices sounding like a constant buzz to Brokk. His blood thrummed in his ears as his heart pounded wildly. The seconds felt like centuries until finally, he saw a flash of silver and a smooth voice filled his mind, “Now.”
Brokk didn’t need to be told twice. Springing from the ground like a demon from the darkness, he pulled his curved twin blades out in seconds as he cut the men off. The group stopped, looking pale in the moonlight and extremely exposed.
“Evening, boys,” Brokk said in a taunting voice. “Sorry to interrupt your rounds, but I dare say you’re a little close for comfort to our home. Convenient for us, though,” he added, twirling the hilts in his hands. “We wanted you exactly here.”
Their leader took a daring step toward him. His mistake. Brokk yelled into the darkness, “Memphis, keep him alive!”
In a flurry of movement, his friends dropped from the surrounding trees, all dressed in the same camouflage, their weapons at the ready. A mad cackle broke the guard’s momentary trance, and they tried to run. Chaos ensued.
Brokk threw his blades at the nearest tree—a satisfying thud sounded as they found their mark. He ran, eyes fixated on the two guards that had broken away from the fight ahead of him. It was laughable really, just how much they thought they had a chance of escaping. They had no idea who they were up against.
The familiar popping and breaking of bones shivered through his body when animal instinct took over as the wolf inside him did. The ground shook from his colossal paws, golden fur rippling like a beacon in the night. His growl rumbled like thunder, and for a split second, he forgot who he was. All that mattered was that he took his targets down. The guard’s deaths were much swifter than they deserved.
Brokk shifted back, trying to calm the elation of how good that had felt. Memphis snapped him out of his glorified moment. “Brokk! Come here.”
The last guard was openly crying, now forced to his knees, hands shaking behind his head. Brokk almost felt sorry for him. Almost.
Up close he was much younger than Brokk thought, fear replacing the guard’s bravery now. Memphis’s icy blue eyes cut into his, and he didn’t have to say anything for Brokk to understand. Telekinetic or not, his friend wore his heart on his sleeve. They were all on edge and who could blame them? Six years of hiding. Six years of losing this war. Brokk swallowed back his thoughts, wearing his mask of oozing confidence and anger.
“W-who are you?” The guard’s voice squeaked out several octaves higher than it should have.
Nyx kicked him in the gut, making him wheeze in pain and gasp for air. Memphis crouched down in front of him, his long blond hair tied back, revealing his severe features. They all bore scars, some more visible than others.

Saying I DoSaying I Do (Stewart Island #8)
by Tracey Alvarez
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Age category: Adult
Release Date: 19 May, 2017
Rating: 5 stars

Blurb:
Marriage and happily-ever-after are for suckers…

Joe Whelan was fooled once on the way to the altar, and the Irish doctor isn’t about to be an eejit over a woman again. Especially not one who witnessed his broken-hearted humiliation years ago. He won’t be swayed by the sparks that fly whenever his eyes meet MacKenna’s or distracted by her sweet kisses. The only thing Joe cares about is preventing his sister from making the biggest marital mistake of her life.

MacKenna Jones loves a good wedding—so long as she’s sewing the bride’s gown, not walking down the aisle herself. Falling for Joe Whelan’s sexy bedside manner wasn’t on the cards, neither was a seven-day road trip with him to Las Vegas, the Marriage Capital of the World. When the stakes are so high, will these two gun-shy cynics ever say I Do?

Saying I Do Teaser 1

My Review:
Dr Joe has featured in several of the Due South books up to this point but we haven’t really learned that much about him except that he’s originally from Ireland. Mac has appeared previously as Holly’s cousin and the bridal shop owner so we know a little bit about her too. This is their story and I loved every heart stealing moment of it!

Tracey is a fabulous writer and her prose and her wonderful characters always hook me from the get-go, and Saying I Do was no different.

Dr Joe has sworn off love due to a disastrous previous engagement that Mac played a part in. I won’t say any more because I don’t want to ruin the story but suffice it to say that both formed opinions of each other when they first crossed paths and since Dr Joe moved to Oban they have butted heads every time they meet. But there is no stopping Mrs T once she gets a notion in her head. As the island’s self-professed matchmaking expert, Betsy has set her sights on Mac and Joe and the story kicks off with her manipulating a meeting between them.

Mac is also a bit love-shy thanks to an overly-eager mother who has been divorced a few times and she has some love skeletons in her closet too. I enjoyed Mac’s character – she was intelligent, successful, confident, and fiesty. She struggled to understand her feelings for Joe but as the story progressed she couldn’t avoid the fact she was falling in love with the Irish doctor.

Joe gradually starts opening his heart to Mac and he proves how far he has come on a trip to Vegas to celebrate his sister’s nuptials. But the path of true love doesn’t run smooth and there are a few hiccups for our couple before they get their HEA.

Tracey has done an amazing job portraying the Irish characters in this story. They were all believable and I found myself chuckling at phrases I know so well! All of Joe’s family were right characters and I sense they have some interesting stories to tell. The scene in the Vegas hotel room where Mac first meets his brothers was hysterically funny and I almost peed my pants I was laughing so hard. I loved the switch of scenery in this book, especially the American road trip. Something happens during that trip that made me mad (no spoilers here folks) but all was good in the end.

Overall, this was another superb read from Tracey. I always know I’m in for a great time when I pick up one of her books and that was most definitely the case with Saying I Do.

I beta read an unedited draft of this book and I have voluntarily reviewed same. All opinions expressed are entirely my own.

Saying I Do Teaser 2

Excerpt:
Mac continued to gaze lustfully into the all-marble bathroom and giant tub that could easily hold a wedding party of six. As much as she wanted to soak in a tub filled with bubbles, if she wasn’t to be a complete wreck meeting Joe’s family later, she needed to crawl beneath those sheets and sleep for at least an hour.
“Shower and sleep,” she said. “I’m on an unstoppable trajectory to get clean and unconscious.”
“Party pooper.”
He grinned that sexy, promising a good time grin, and she nearly caved. Before Mac changed her mind, she ducked into the bathroom and shut the door. Locked it. Keeping temptation out of reach—for her, not him. Tapping her phone, she selected her favorite playlist and cranked up the volume. Nothing like Freddy Mercury’s soaring vocal plea for someone to love to set the mood for a refreshing, loooong shower.
Mac sang along—too bad if Joe didn’t like her voice—and took her time under the steaming-hot jets while Freddy gave way to Madonna, Bryan Adams, and Simple Minds.
Once her fingers started to prune, she relented and got out, pouncing on the free bottle of expensive body lotion. While Cyndi told the world about girls just wanting to have fun, Mac finished slathering on the lotion. She’d been a little premature turning down the opportunity to mess up the sheets with Joe because parts of her were very refreshed.
She flung open the bathroom door, shimmying everything she had, the chorus on her lips—and met the startled gaze of Joe, beer bottle in hand…and two other men.
One sat on the sofa, the other reclined on their bed, beer balanced on his flat stomach. Three pairs of eyes locked on her assets, jaws sagged, followed by wide, appreciative smiles by the two strangers. Joe turned a murderous stare at the two men—who were obviously his brothers, judging by their same coloring and bright blue eyes.
Mac froze momentarily, like a possum in a hunter’s spotlight, a flight or fight response kicking in, even though in this case, embarrassment would kill her before the adrenaline overdose. She bit down on the urge to shriek like a train whistle and slapped an attitude-infused hand on her waist instead. What was the point of rushing away when men had a photographic memory for boobs and bums? They’d be retelling this story for years.
“You must be Joe’s brothers,” she said. “Nice to meetcha.” As if she met her boyfriend’s family bare-assed every day of the week.
“Pleasure is all ours,” said the brother from the bed, lifting his beer in a silent toast. “I’m Kyle.”
“Luke,” the older of the two men said, from the sofa. “We brought beer.”
Both men, after their initial surprise, met her gaze squarely without their gazes lowering to her…assets. Now if she could just figure out how to make a graceful exit…
Joe solved the issue by hauling the gold-and-purple bed runner off the comforter and crossing the room in double time to wrap it around her, using the bulk of his body to block his brothers’ view.
“Flippin’ hell, Mac,” he muttered, tucking the tail of fabric between her breasts.
His voice was gruff, but not with the chastisement she’d assumed. His face told her he was caught between laughter, annoyance, and possessive arousal. Suddenly, she wanted the Whelan brothers gone. Suddenly, she didn’t need a nap, she just needed Joe.

Blog Tour: The Wright Boss by K.A. Linde


Today is my stop during the blog tour for The Wright Boss by K.A. Linde! Read on for my review and some teasers for this book!

Title: The Wright Boss
Author: K.A. Linde
Series: standalone
Rating: 4 stars
Genres: Contemporary Romance
Links:

Blurb:
A new stand alone office romance from USA Today bestselling author K.A. Linde…

I’ve always had one rule:

Don’t mix business and pleasure.

But then Landon Wright comes home to his family’s construction company with a broken back and a beaten heart and ends up as my new sexy boss. As the office gets heated, I’m thinking about throwing the rulebook out the window.

If only there weren’t a million reasons this could never work.

We may have shared a single perfect kiss, but I can’t let our intense connection cloud my judgment. Not with everything I’ve worked for on the line.

Dating your boss is so very, very wrong…even if he feels so Wright.

My Review:
I was super excited to read this book as I really connected with Landon and Heidi in The Wright Brother and I was keen to see them get their HEA.

This was a great read and I read it in one sitting. Landon won me over from the very start and I was delighted when he kicked his conniving wife to the curb. Not that she went easily but I’m glad he had the strength of his convictions. He still had a job convincing Heidi he was sincere but he persevered until she was willing to take a chance on him. She was risking a lot as relationships between immediate management and employees was forbidden in Wright Construction and she was also worried how Em would react. Landon was swoon-worthy in the extreme and I totally shipped them.

Our couple was so hot for one another and their chemistry was explosive. The sexual tension in the first third of the book was delicious and it kept me hooked. Both are dealing with separate issues in their personal lives and it was nice that they could be there to support one another.

I really enjoyed how much of a career-orientated person Heidi was and how she had to work extremely hard to hold her own in such an alpha-dominated environment. I can relate to that. Her career was very important to her and it’s why she was so concerned about taking a risk with Landon – she didn’t want to jeopardize everything she had worked toward over the years.

It was great to get glimpses of Jensen, Em, and Colt, and to see the other family dynamics at play. I’m intrigued by Austin’s background and what demons are driving his alcohol addiction. I’m so looking forward to reading his book even if I’m not overly enamored with Julia, but I’m prepared to be won over. I enjoyed the sample we got at the back of this book and it’s most definitely whetted my appetite.

The writing was great and the pacing was perfect and it flowed beautifully.

This was a five-star read right up until the main conflict detonated. I want to share my review without spoilers which is difficult when it comes to this part of the story so, fair warning, this is mildly-spoilery. I found this part of the plot weak and I struggled to accept it as believable when her boyfriend was part of the family who owned the business and his brother (and her bestie’s boyfriend) was the CEO. I worked as Head of HR for 12 years and I have to say that Julia is the worst HR professional and a shitty friend. While I understand her personal relationship could have no bearing on the situation, no skilled HR professional fires someone without having all the facts to hand and without ensuring the relevant authority figures are aware of the situation, ESPECIALLY when this person is a well-respected loyal employee and a friend – you would do everything to avoid having to pull the trigger. I actually got really mad at that whole situation because it was a clear plot device and not properly thought out. I would have preferred if Miranda had used different means to cause chaos rather than going that route. Most readers probably won’t have any issue with it but given my background, I just couldn’t accept it as plausible or in any way credible. What was worse was the scene at the charity event when the Head of HR publicly assaulted one of the owners in front of clients and employees but she’s allowed to keep her job? That was a worse scenario than what happened at the golf event, and it brought the brand into more disrepute in my opinion. It just didn’t add up to me.

Also, while I understood Heidi’s reaction toward Landon, her acceptance of Julia’s role wasn’t realistic. She should have been mad at her for not handling it properly but instead, she was mad at Landon. And Julia never once apologized for her unprofessional handling of the situation. Gah, I hate saying anything bad about another author’s work but this really pushed my buttons and I hate that because I was LOVING this book up until this happened.

Anyway, that is my only complaint. The rest of the book was excellent and thoroughly enjoyable and I still wouldn’t hesitate to recommend it. This is a great series and I’m looking forward to reading the rest of the Wright stories. I do hope the girls are getting books too as I’m so invested in this family and I want to read more in this world.

Thanks to the author and Insklinger PR for providing an advance copy of this book which I have voluntarily reviewed.

Mason Kade is the dream.

He is the promise.

He’s offering what so many would fantasize about, and it’s not that I don’t want it/him/us.

It’s the opposite.

There might be ghosts haunting me, but this man who’s my soulmate is asking me for forever.

How can I say no to someone who already gave me my happily ever after?
