I have some exciting news for you today! Both Finding Kyler and Loving Kalvin are free for a very limited time only. If you haven’t started the Kennedy Boys series yet or you haven’t read the later standalone books in this series yet, this is a great time to pick them up. If taboo/forbidden romance isn’t your bag, you can skip the Kyler books and jump straight into Loving Kalvin (a friends to lovers, second chance romance.) While the first three books in this series must be read together, thereafter every book focuses on a different Kennedy brother and his love interest and they are STANDALONE romances.
Up to date with the series? Fantastic! And thanks so much for reading. This series has been one of my absolute favorite to write to date. Did you know that Releasing Keanu is releasing at the end this month? I can’t wait to share Keanu’s story with you, because he is EVERYTHING! I am seriously swooning over this guy and this couple are the best! While this is a very emotional story, and there are some dark undertones, I can honestly say these two are one of the sweetest couples I have ever written. Did I mention I’m in love with Keanu?? Lol. If you haven’t preordered it yet, I’ve enclosed the links below.
I’d like to take this opportunity to thank you all so much for an amazing 2019. Merry Christmas to you and yours and I hope you have a fantastic holiday.
Two fractured hearts and a forbidden love they can’t deny.
You shouldn’t want what you can’t have…
Faye Donovan has lost everything. After her parent’s tragic death, she’s whisked away from her home in Ireland when an unknown uncle surfaces as her new guardian.
Dropped smack-dab into the All-American dream, Faye should feel grateful. Except living with her wealthy uncle, his fashion-empire-owning wife, and their seven screwed-up sons is quickly turning into a nightmare—especially when certain inappropriate feelings arise.
Kyler Kennedy makes her head hurt and her heart race, but he’s her cousin.
He’s off limits.
And he’s not exactly welcoming—Kyler is ignorant, moody, and downright cruel at times—but Faye sees behind the mask he wears, recognizing a kindred spirit.
Kyler has sworn off girls, yet Faye gets under his skin. The more he pushes her away, the more he’s drawn to her, but acting on those feelings risks a crap-ton of prejudice, and any whiff of scandal could damage the precious Kennedy brand.
Concealing their feelings seems like the only choice.
But when everyone has something to hide, a secret is a very dangerous thing.
A second-chance romance from USA Today bestseller Siobhan Davis. Standalone with HEA and no cliffhanger.
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?
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.
Pre-order Releasing Keanu
A friends-to-lovers second-chance romance from USA Today bestseller Siobhan Davis. Standalone with HEA and no cliffhanger.
Selena played me.
Confirming I wasted years loving someone who didn’t love me back.
It should be easy to move on, but since she dumped me, I can’t shake her from my thoughts, no matter how hard I try.
Dates and random hookups don’t help, because no one measures up to the girl I still love with my whole heart.
When she appears at my door, begging me for help, I can’t turn her away. My protective instincts kick in, and I grasp this second chance with both hands.
This time, I’m determined to open her eyes.
To help her realize she made a mistake throwing what we had away.
To prove our love is the real deal.
Keanu has it all wrong.
I let him go because I love him too much to continue holding him back.
And I’ve paid for it every day since.
I didn’t think it was possible to miss someone this much, but my entire being aches for him in a way that isn’t healthy.
It’s why I continue to keep my distance even though it’s killing me inside.
No one understands me the way he does, so, when my ugly past returns, threatening to undo years of progress, he’s the first person I run to.
If anyone can keep me safe, it’s the love of my life.
Maybe, this time, I’m strong enough to be the woman he deserves.
If my past doesn’t take me from him first.
Releasing Keanu is a STANDALONE new adult romance in the Kennedy Boys world. No cliffhanger, no cheating, and a guaranteed HEA.
According to the guys at Fairfield Academy, there are two types of girls: the kind you hook up with, and the kind you’re friends with. Seventeen-year-old Alyssa Reed is the second type. And she hates it. With just one year left to change her rank, she devises a plan to become the first type by homecoming, and she sets her sights on the perfect date—Justin Carter, Fairfield Academy’s biggest hottie and most notorious player.
With 57 days until the dance, Aly launches Operation Sex Appeal and sheds her tomboy image. The only thing left is for Justin actually to notice her. Enter best friend Brandon Taylor, the school’s second biggest hottie, and now Aly’s pretend boyfriend. With his help, elevating from “funny friend” to “tempting vixen” is only a matter of time.
But when everything goes according to plan, the inevitable “break up” leaves their friendship in shambles, and Aly and Brandon with feelings they can’t explain. And the fake couple discovers pretending can sometimes cost you the one thing you never expected to want.
This was so adorable. Loved, loved, loved Brandon. And Aly’s journey to self-discovery was one that kept me engaged the whole way through. I was totally rooting for our couple! Gabi and Carlos are my favorite secondary characters and I’d love to see them get their HEA. Drew and Sarah intrigued me too, and there’s a lot more to Justin Carter then we’ve seen. A great cast of characters, superb writing, and plenty of chemistry to keep me hooked.
A fun, flirty, feel good read and one I highly recommend.
Today marks the release of Surviving Amber Springs, a second chance reverse harem romance that will appeal to both reverse harem and contemporary romance readers alike. This book has everything you have come to expect from my work – twists and turns galore, tons of emotion and angst, drama and suspense, and a controversial story-line. PLUS, there is plenty of swoon-worthy romance and three times the male hotness to drool over!
I’m always nervous-excited with every new book launch, and I regularly tell my husband that the day I’m not is the day I’ve become complacent and should give up! But my anxiety today is a lot higher than usual because this is such a sensitive subject and I really hope everyone understands the message I’m trying to convey. Yes, this book is entertaining but I also hope it’s thought-provoking and insightful. I urge everyone to read the note at the start before reading as this book may cause triggers for some readers.
I’m enormously proud of every book I write, but this one has touched a special place in my heart and I hope it does that for you too.

About the book
Genre: Contemporary Romance/ Reverse Harem
Age Category: Upper Young Adult/ New Adult
Release Date: 26 December, 2018
Let him who is without sin cast the first stone…
I’m the second-most hated person in Amber Springs.
First place honors go to my twin, Ethan; however, hate isn’t a strong enough word to convey how people feel about him.
Not that I blame anyone—some days, I hate him too. Mostly, I’m just lost and afraid, drowning in a sea of betrayal and guilt, wondering how this happened right under my nose.
There’s no choice but to leave. To move clear across the country in a last-ditch attempt to start over.
Transferring to a new school midway through senior year is hellish for most people. For me, it’s a welcome relief—until someone discovers our secret and now everyone knows.
The pointing, whispering, and scathing looks follow me around again, and I’m back to square one. Except, this time, I’m not alone.
Axel, Skeet, and Heath took me under their wing from the minute I arrived here. I’ve no idea why three of the hottest guys in town took any interest in me or why they continue to have my back, but I’m so grateful to have them in my corner.
Because, right now, they’re the only reason I’m not following my brother into an early grave.
Due to sensitive content, and possible triggers, this book is recommended to readers aged 18+. Full length novel.
“You go first,” Axel says in a whisper on the landing, thrusting a fluffy white towel into my arms.
I channel my inner seductress, narrowing my eyes and licking my lips. “We could always shower together.”
He pushes me into the wall, caging me between his arms while leveling a dark gaze on me. “Showering won’t be all we’re doing if I go in there with you,” he warns, his voice rough and husky.
“Why do you think I suggested it?”
His lips descend on mine, and he kisses me deeply. I pant into his mouth, clutching at his waist, pulling him flush against me. The evidence of his arousal, prodding my stomach, coils my insides into delicious knots, and I’m already so wet for him. I whimper when he suddenly pulls back. “Are you sure, Blaire?” His eyes examine mine carefully. “I thought you needed space.”
I was right. He was purposely ignoring my wishes, yet I can’t find it in me to criticize him for it. Not when he seems to know what I need better than I know myself. “I do.” I sigh. “I don’t. I … I don’t know.”
“And that’s exactly why we shouldn’t.” He kisses my cheek, moving to step away.
“No.” I fist my hand in his shirt, pulling him back into me. “I need to feel … something real.” My eyes convey every emotion racing through me. “Please, Ax. I just … I just need you.”
Look up the word “nerd” and you’ll find Lily Cooper’s picture. She’s got one goal: first stop valedictorian, next stop Harvard. Until a stint in the hospital from too much stress lands her in the last place a klutz like her ever expected to be: salsa dance lessons.
Look up the word “popular” and you’ll find Stone Torres’s picture. His life seems perfect—star of the football team, straight-A student, lots of friends. But his family is struggling to make ends meet, so if pitching in at the Torres dance studio helps, he’ll do it.
When Lily’s dad offers Stone extra cash to volunteer as Lily’s permanent dance partner, he can’t refuse. But with each dip and turn, each moment her hand is in his, his side job starts to feel all too real. But in dance, as in life, one wrong move and someone could get hurt.

A girl with a hidden past. An alien prince. Their unlikely attraction could save two worlds… or doom them all…
Sadie Owens desperately needed a do-over. When she’s chosen for a six-month residency in a government-run undersea city, she willingly drops everything to participate. After all, the experiment could be a huge step forward for her overcrowded planet and her life.
The instant Sadie crosses paths with a hot guy with ocean-blue eyes she’s drawn to him in a way she can’t explain. But Logan gives Sadie mixed signals, and she can’t figure him out.
Logan Chandler has kept a lot of secrets for his species. If humans knew the real reason the Saven were on Earth, then their coexistence would be anything but peaceful. Logan has vowed to stay away from human girls, but he can’t help falling for the different and beautiful Sadie. Unfortunately, protecting the girl of his destiny could destroy his own kind…
As the mystery of the Saven starts to unravel, is it too late for Sadie to save her heart and the human race?
“Come, sit,” he says, his fingers curling gently around the tips of mine. I plop down on the beanbag beside him and yelp. “You are hurt.” He frowns. “Let me take a look.” He scrunches the edge of my shirt, but I clamp down on his hand. There’s no way I’m admitting that it’s my butt that’s sore, and no way am I ready to let him inspect that part of my anatomy.
Get you, my inner devil teases.
“I’m fine.” I pin him with a “drop it” look.
“You are so stubborn.” Shaking his head, he unscrews the cap from his bottle.
“I’m stubborn?” I level an incredulous look his way. “Have you not looked in the mirror recently, dude?”
He laughs and the sound sends warmth flooding through me.
“You’ve a lovely laugh,” I blurt out. Ohmigod! I can’t believe I said something so cheesy.
“I do?” He looks amused.
“Yep.” I’m resorting to one-word replies now for fear of what else might inadvertently tumble out of my mouth.
He stares intently at me, his fiery eyes penetrating my soul. The cord buzzes with anticipation. I might’ve forgotten how to breathe again. “You are beautiful, through and through.”
With each passing second, my heart pounds faster and faster. He inclines toward me and I move closer. Butterflies are throwing a mad party in the pit of my stomach. Like magnets, we inch closer and closer still. As my pulse throbs, he zeroes in on my lips and his eyes linger there.
I’ve imagined this moment so many times without ever really believing I’d get to experience it. Now that I’m here, seconds away from my first real kiss, I’m terrified of the strength of my emotion. I never knew it could be like this. That I could feel such a strong connection to a boy; that my body could tremble with such intense desire. And our lips haven’t even met yet.
We are a hairsbreadth from one another. I bridge the final distance and close my eyes. His fingers brush my lips and I’m tingly all over. Reopening my eyes, I see the adoration glistening in his gaze. For me.
“Ala beatra.” The words roll seductively and respectfully off his tongue. I’ve no idea what it means, or what language he’s speaking, but it sounds beautiful.
And like a form of worship.
Though it’s possible I’m deluding myself.
He closes his eyes and presses his mouth to mine. His touch is feather soft and it unravels me. I kiss him back equally gently and he moans softly. His lips exert more pressure as he draws me in flush with his solid chest. I’ve never felt this much emotion before. It’s almost too much, but at the same time, not enough.
Gaining in confidence, I encircle my arms around his neck and melt into him, savoring the feel of his body as it presses against mine. Angling his head, he extends the kiss, and it grows in intensity and fire. I’m matching him, kiss for kiss, and my need for him is reaching an all-time high. I can’t get enough of him. He is everywhere, and yet I need more.
Enemy alien ships crowd the skies over Earth while the world waits with bated breath. The Saven have been exposed, and where once they were abhorred, they are now championed as Earth’s greatest ally and only possible savior.
Logan and Sadie have been separated, and the longer he is gone, the more their love is tested by duty, doubts, and deception.
Sadie and Jarod have infiltrated the highest levels of government, but they are playing a dangerous game. Surrounded by people with conflicting agendas—hell-bent on using her for their own aim—Sadie is confused when the lines between good and evil are blurred. It’s impossible to tell friend from foe, and no one can be trusted.
When the full extent of the experiments taking place in Sector Twenty is disclosed, Sadie can no longer sit back and watch as the lower classes face a horrific fate. Racing to save her loved ones and mankind, she risks her own safety and the love she’s waited a lifetime for to do the right thing.
But no one thought to save her from herself.

On the night of her high school graduation, Vale McKinley and her boyfriend Crawford are in a terrible car accident that leaves Crawford in a coma. They were supposed to spend the summer planning for college, for a bright future full of possibility. Together. Instead, Vale spends long days in the hospital, hoping Crawford will awaken.
Slate Allen, a college friend of Vale’s brother, has been visiting his dying uncle at the same hospital. When he and Vale meet, she can’t deny the flutter of an illicit attraction. She tries to ignore her feelings, but she’s not immune to Slate’s charm. Slowly, they form a cautious friendship.
Then, Crawford wakes up . . . with no memory of Vale or their relationship. Heartbroken, Vale opts to leave for college and move on with her life. Except now, she’s in Slate’s territory, and their story is about to take a very strange turn.
Absolutely loved this except the end was far too abrupt, and it feels like I don’t have closure. Happy I guessed the twist, and it was genius. The blurb really drew me in and it had the right level of angst and drama to keep this reader happy, just wish the ending was different.
Also, I’m wondering why the end paragraph of the blurb is there as it’s technically not correct. I’m wondering if the story was maybe written like that first, and was later changed. It was actually that part of the blurb that really hooked me. I can’t help thinking of how angsty that would’ve been. Maybe she’ll do a Jessica Sorensen on it and write a different version of the same story with a different Part 2 – would love to read that!
My name is Alexis and up until a day ago, I thought the worst thing that ever happened to me was catching Blaine and Masie kissing. Boy was I wrong. Like really, really wrong. Now my life is filled with crazy hackers, dirty lies, and three hot guys trying to protect me. And who knows what tomorrow will bring.
I LOVED this volume and I’m enjoying Alexis’ character way better than Zharas. The boys aren’t quite as captivating as the boys in Zhara’s harem, but West and Steel are smokin’ hot and very intriguing. Ellis not so much. This one was a fantastic read, plenty of laughs, sexual tension, and mystery. Initially, I was peeved that the story was splitting between Zhara and Alexis but after this volume, I really don’t mind. I hate that they are so short because I’m so stuck into it and then, bam, it’s over. Aaggh! I’m hungry for more even though I can’t really complain as I’ve read these all back to back.
Totally addicted to this series – I need more like, yesterday, lol. Please tell me the next volume is coming soon? Can’t get these guys out of my head!
My name is Zhara and my life is filled with drug lords, threats, lies, secrets, and kissing…
It’s making separating my real life with my undercover life complicated.
The Bad Boy Rebels series is a novella series that follows Zhara and six guys who are part of a secret detective program. It contains a lot of kissing, steamy scenes, with a bit of suspense, and mystery.
5 hawt stars for all the gorgeous, interesting guys but 3 stars for the gullible heroine, weak premise, and plot holes. That said, Zhara is growing on me as she becomes more forthright but the premise behind the story is not believable and I’m consistently rolling my eyes at how she has to “prove” she’s dating six guys. There is no credible reason for it or the fact that others are demanding proof. But, I really enjoy the detective agency side of it and the mystery is intriguing, and I’m one hundred percent invested now.
And that scene with Benton and Xavier was hot (even if ridiculous that they were asked to do it.) Hoping for steamier scenes as it progresses and I’m definitely loving the RH aspect.
Wish I knew when the next Zhara episode was out, but Jessica is very prolific and she releases quickly so I’m confident we won’t have to wait too long. Usually, I’m not a fan of serials like this but I’m really enjoying this one (complaints aside.)
Swim. Eat. Shower. School. Snack. Swim. Swim. Swim. Dinner. Homework. Bed. Repeat.
All of Maggie’s focus and free time is spent swimming. She’s not only striving to earn scholarships—she’s training to qualify for the Olympics. It helps that her best friend, Levi, is also on the team and cheers her on. But Levi’s already earned an Olympic tryout, so Maggie feels even more pressure to succeed. And it’s not until Maggie’s away on a college visit that she realizes how much of the “typical” high school experience she’s missed by being in the pool.
Not one to shy away from a challenge, Maggie decides to squeeze the most out of her senior year. First up? Making out with a guy. And Levi could be the perfect candidate. After all, they already spend a lot of time together. But as Maggie slowly starts to uncover new feelings for Levi, how much is she willing to sacrifice in the water to win at love?
Combine high school romance, best friends turned lovers, and a competitive sports environment and you have one heck of a great read!
I chose to read Catching Jordan and Stealing Parker just before I read this book as I wanted to familiarize myself with the Hundred Oaks series and with Miranda’s writing. While I enjoyed both those books, I felt they were lacking on the romance front and I didn’t like the fact that our couple only got together at the end. Coming up for Air was a vastly superior read, for me, because the romance was much better written and I loved how our couple got involved at a much earlier point in the story.
I adored both Maggie and Levi and was rooting for them from the start. Both are very focused on a future career in swimming and very dedicated to their craft with one key difference. Levi has regular hook-ups to alleviate stress where Maggie has barely even kissed any boys. When she proposed that Levi “coach” her so she was better prepared for college it was obvious the way this was going to go. I didn’t mind that though, and I enjoy that trope so I happily went along for the ride. What I didn’t like was how Levi used that evil witch to help push Maggie away and I was screaming at my Kindle in blind rage at that scene. Maggie was the more mature of the two even if she was way more inexperienced than him. She knew better than to treat her best friend that way.
Miranda seems to excel at abrupt ends that leave you scratching your head, and this book was no different to the others I’ve read in this series. I hated that it ended so suddenly and I don’t feel like I have proper closure which is the only reason this is a four-star rather than five-star review. I did enjoy the epilogue in Sam Henry’s narrative and it explained a little more but I wish the ending wasn’t so rushed.
Overall though, this was a superb read. It gave me all the feels and I adored the setting, the characters, the best friends to lovers trope, the writing and the pacing was spot on.
I look forward to reading other titles in this series at some stage.
Thanks to the publisher for supplying an ARC of this book via Netgalley. I have voluntarily reviewed same and all opinions expressed are entirely my own.
