Zeke Daniels isn’t just a douchebag; he’s an asshole.

A total and complete jerk, Zeke keeps people at a distance. He has no interest in relationships–most assholes don’t.

Dating? Being part of a couple? Nope. Not for him.

He’s never given any thought to what he wants in a girlfriend, because he’s never had any intention of having one.Shit, he barely has a relationship with his family, and they’re related; his own friends don’t even like him.

So why does he keep thinking about Violet DeLuca?

Sweet, quiet Violet–his opposite in every sense of the word. The light to his dark, even her damn name sounds like rays of sunshine and happiness and shit.

And that pisses him off, too.

Review: Heartbreaker by Stacey Kennedy


I am excited today to be part of the release blast for Stacey Kennedy’s Heartbreaker. I love a good law enforcement romance and this features two people involved in law enforcement.

After her boyfriend breaks up with her, Joss is feeling lost and bereft. But she is also ready to try something new, to forget her ex-boyfriend. That’s when she meets Maddox and soon they are going at in the club’s bathroom. But it’s just one moment, just one small moment and it will never be repeated because Maddox does not do repeats.

One year later, Joss and Maddox are brought together again. And the sexual tension between them is hotter than ever. But now Maddox is Joss’s superior at the police station. She is his subordinate and there is no way they can be together, if even for just a fling. Maddox and Joss crave each other however and it isn’t long before the tension between them is leading to sexual release.

The tagline for Heartbreaker is “filthy dirty love” and this book definitely holds true to that. Talk about sexy! Maddox knows just how to make Joss feel alive. And Maddox is a master in the bedroom. While I wouldn’t qualify this book as a BDSM story, there are very strong hints of it in the way Maddox takes care of Joss during their sexual encounters. It is not love at first but as the story continues these two get a lot closer. It is difficult though because they are both hiding parts of themselves from each other.

Stacey Kennedy does a good job of working in the conflicts these two face on a professional level even if it tended to end a little easier on that storyline than I expected. Mostly, I just really enjoyed watching these two fall for each other. It was not easy on either of them because they had convinced themselves that there was no way the could be in love but of course, any romance reader knows that love is exactly what these two need in their lives.

If you’re in the mood for a really sexy and dirty (in a very romantic way!) story, I recommend Heartbreaker. I am excited to see what the second story in the series will be about. Joss and Maddox are going to break your heart just the tiniest bit but it’s worth it!


Filthy Dirty Love #1
By: Stacey Kennedy
Releasing January 31, 2017

Handcuffs aren’t just part of their job in this sizzling new standalone novel by USA Today bestselling author, Stacey Kennedy.
Veteran cop, Maddox Hunt, is all about the job. Sure, there are women—lots of women, truth be told—but there’s no one special. Until a one-night stand from his past, rookie Joss O’Neil is assigned to his division. Suddenly, all he can think about is her. The scent of her. The taste of her.

Fresh out of field training, Joss has thrown herself into her job, determined to kick-start her career. And while police work has its thrills, her gorgeous new boss is what really gets her pulse pounding. Too bad he’s nothing but a distraction. Especially since he’s as devastatingly handsome as she remembers, and his sexy smile arrests her heart.
Now that Joss is back in Maddox’s life, he has a plan: satisfy her fantasies and fulfill his every dark desire. Nothing is off limits. Her pleasure is the endgame . . . but even the best-laid plans have a way of falling apart. Despite his best attempts to keep his distance and have things remain only about the pleasure, Maddox soon finds himself breaking the only law he’s set for himself. Don’t fall in love.

STACEY KENNEDY is the USA Today bestselling author of the Dirty Little Secrets and Club Sin series. She writes deeply emotional romances about powerful men and the wild women who tame them. When she’s not writing sensual stories, she spends her time in southwestern Ontario with her real life hero, her husband, their two young children, and her other babies: a mini labradoodle named Jax and a chocolate labrador named Murphy. Stacey is a proud chocolate, television show, Urban Barn, and wine addict. She likes her heroes in her books like she likes her coffee . . . strong and hot!

Review: Good Boy by Sarina Bowen and Elle Kennedy

gb-bn-koboGuys. GUYS. GUYS! Good Boy is almost here! It releases January 31 and well, you are in for a treat because this book is fabulous from start to finish.

You may remember the charismatic Blake Riley from Elle Kennedy and Sarina Bowen’s previous books together, Him and Us. Blake was introduced in Us and quickly became a breakout star. With good reason! He has a roguish charm that is hard to resist. And that charm shines through in Good Boy.

When the story opens, Blake is looking forward to hooking up with Jess Canning again. He is sure she can’t resist him and well, it’s a wedding, a traditionally romantic event for women. Except for Jess, the wedding of her brother is stress city. She is organizing the event and wants it to be perfect because when it’s over, she has to tell her family that yet again, she is not going to stick with a career that she was sure was for her. She is embarrassed because her family sees her as a bit flighty. So, Jess is determined to have this event go well. And it does. But yet again, in her eyes, Jess is seen as the family failure. But Jess has a new plan. She wants to be a nurse and she will make this work. That means moving to Canada, where the cost of nursing school is a bit less than the schools in California. Moving to Canada also means being put in constant contact with Blake.

I don’t want to really give anything else away because this book is pure joy to read. I will say, both Blake and Jess have relationship issues that makes acknowledging their growing feelings difficult. But in between those moments, this romance is wonderful. Blake is more than happy to give chase to Jess. He wants her back in his bed. He does not expect to fall in love with her though, at all.

Blake is a charmer. He is a bit of a rascal. He is utterly delicious. Just about every sentence out of his mouth made me laugh. I love his enthusiasm for life. Not a lot gets him down and in general he is a very positive person. I really loved seeing him falling in love because once it hits, it hit him big time and he was just fully committed to making this new relationship work.

I must admit, when I finished this book I felt like a pile of romantic mush. While I love both Him and Us, I feel like Bowen and Kennedy were truly in sync together when writing this book. The story flows really well and at no point was I ever really aware that there were two writers for this book. I don’t know how they did it but their writing talents have grown in leaps and bounds in this new series. I can only imagine how difficult it is to write a book with another person so I must say, hats off to you Ms. Bowen and Ms. Kennedy. Job well done!

I absolutely love this story. Plain and simple. Jess is a strong, fabulous woman who has found her calling in nursing. Her hard work and joy in this profession is evident as the story continues. I loved seeing her mature as a professional woman. And I really liked her roommate and must admit, was hoping she would get a book of her own. Hard to say if it will happen but I will hold out hope.

Anyway, there is SO MUCH good in this book. Good Boy is the kind of heart-swelling, tear-inducing, laughter happy story that romance readers crave. Don’t miss out on this book!

Review: Wrecking Ball by P. Dangelico


I’m excited to be taking part in the release day launch for Wrecking Ball by P. Dangelico. What interested me about this book is that it features one of my favorite tropes, that of the live-in nanny who ends up being the object of affection for the hero, who is sharing the house with her for some reason or another. It’s a well-used trope in the romance genre but I love it every single time. P. Dangelico does a good job of making her take on this trope interesting.

Camilla “Cam” DeSantis’ life has gone down the tubes. Her husband, now deceased, was involved inWrecking Ball by P. Dangelico several Ponzi schemes. Unfortunately, the blame has fallen equally on Cam’s head, even though she had no idea what was going on. She loved her husband and though he seemed to enjoy the “good life” sometimes, she had no idea what he was doing to people. Now, he is dead. Her house and car has been repossessed and she is basically seen as a villain everywhere she goes. She’s back home living with her parents and is desperate need of a job. Her background in education makes her perfect for the live-in nanny/teacher role that Calvin Shaw needs when it comes to his young nephew.

Unfortunately, Calvin Shaw has notoriety written all over him as he is a famous football player for the New York Titans. When she overhears him making a very callous remark about her, Cam initially turns down the job. But soon enough she knows she needs the money. It will help pay back her parents who helped bail her out.

Cam and Calvin don’t particularly get along. He is callous and rather rude. Cam loves helping Calvin’s nephew, Sam, though. He is a little boy who needs her friendship and help and she feels like finally she has a purpose again. But, as one would expect in a romance novel, soon feelings are growing between Cam and Calvin.

I mostly liked Wrecking Ball. I really enjoyed the relationship between Sam and Cam. I also did enjoy the banter between Cam and Calvin as he started opening up to her. I think my biggest dissatisfaction is that I wish I would have been able to see into Calvin’s head a bit more. He is a definite hard nut to crack. And I was infuriated when Calvin called Cam a cow. Just infuriated. If I hadn’t been reading on my phone I would have thrown it across the room.

BUT… I will say Calvin does man up in a big way. By the end of the story, I was a lot more in his corner and supportive of him as a character. He is not perfect so if you’re looking for Prince Charming, Calvin may not be the hero for you. He’s kind of dark at times but when it’s all said and done, I did make connections with him as a reader.

I really liked Cam. She said what was on her mind, damn the consequences. She has already been through her own version of hell and she realizes she has nothing to lose at this point. Cam is blunt, she is open, and she is not going to hold back anymore. I liked that about her a lot. She really became a take no prisoners kind of woman. There is one small thing that bothered me throughout the course of the book. She referred to herself as a trany at one point which I find to be a slur. And while I’m sure the author didn’t intend that, I just find myself sensitive to language like that.

Overall though, I really did fly through this book while reading it. Calvin and Cam and Sam make up a sweet family as the story changes and grows. I really came to appreciate how these two fell for each other. It wasn’t easy by any means. But if you like the nanny/live-in help falls for the hero trope, well you may just thoroughly enjoy this book like me.

Wrecking Ball:

Cam DeSantis’ life is a hot, steaming pile. How else would you describe losing your husband, your job, and your money all at once? Desperate times call for desperate measures, so when salvation comes in the form of one intolerable a-hole, who just happens to be the starting quarterback for the vaunted NY Titans, she has no choice but to accept his offer as a live-in nanny slash teacher for his eight year old nephew. Now all she has to do is find a safe place in her mind to hide whenever she feels the need to throat punch him into tomorrow…which is often.

Calvin Shaw has zero interest in women. Wait, wait––let me rephrase that. He loves women, he just doesn’t want anything to do with ‘um. Not since his wife, presently ex-wife, got knocked up by the guy she was cheating on him with. Problem is––there’s one living in his house. And he doesn’t know what’s worse, that he promised to be civil, or that he’s attracted to her.

About the author:

P. Dangelico loves romance in all forms, shapes, and sizes, cuddly creatures (four legged and two), brick oven pizza, the NY Jets (although she may rethink that after this season), and to while away the day at the barn. What she’s not enamored with is referring to herself in the third person and social media.

Cover Reveal: Unwritten by Jen Frederick

beautiful Landry. But if he wants to claim his woman, it might be at the expense of all his ambitions.

Landry Olsen has had success at every stage of her life, except when it comes to men. She’s put her heart on the shelf, but one look at Adam and she’s a goner. The hot rocker heats her from the inside out, and she wants him as much as he wants her. The only thing standing in their way of their happiness is Landry’s brother—she ruined his musical hopes before, and she won’t do it again. Even if it means saying no to the one guy who makes her believe in love again.

There’s no fruit more tempting than the forbidden kind…

Release Day Blitz: Egomaniac by Vi Keeland






Pageflex Persona [document: PRS0000038_00072]The night I met Drew Jagger, he’d just broken into my new Park Avenue office.
I dialed 9-1-1 before proceeding to attack him with my fancy new Krav Maga skills.
He quickly restrained me, then chuckled, finding my attempted assault amusing.

Of course, my intruder had to be arrogant.
Only, turned out, he wasn’t an intruder at all.

Drew was the rightful occupant of my new office. He’d been on vacation while his posh space was renovated.
Which was how a scammer got away with leasing me office space that wasn’t really available for rent.
I was swindled out of ten grand.

The next day, after hours at the police station, Drew took pity on me and made me an offer I couldn’t refuse. In exchange for answering his phones while his secretary was out, he’d let me stay until I found a new place.
I probably should have acted grateful and kept my mouth shut when I overheard the advice he was spewing to his clients. But I couldn’t help giving him a piece of my mind.
I never expected my body to react every time we argued. Especially when that was all we seemed to be able to do.

The two of us were complete opposites. Drew was a bitter, angry, gorgeous-as-all-hell, destroyer of relationships. And my job was to help people save their marriages.
The only thing the two of us had in common was the space we were sharing.
And an attraction that was getting harder to deny by the day.

Releasing January 16th, 2017

Entangled Embrace

Steps to Surviving a New Job:

1. Don’t sleep with the client. It’ll get you fired. (Sounds easy enough.)

2. Don’t blink when new client turns out to be former one-night stand.

3. Don’t call same client a jerk for never texting you back.

4. Don’t believe client when he says he really, really wanted to call.

5. Remember, the client is always right—so you can’t junk punch him when he demands new design after new design.

6. Ignore accelerated heartbeat every time sexy client walks into room.

7. Definitely ignore client’s large hands. They just mean he wears big gloves.

8. Don’t let client’s charm wear you down. Be strong.

9. Whatever you do, don’t fall for the client. You’ll lose more than your
job—maybe even your heart.

10. If all else fails, see rule number one again.

Cover Reveal: Your Tempting Love by Layla

Today we have the cover reveal for Your Tempting Love by Layla Hagen! Check out the gorgeous cover and grab your copy on February 17th!


Title: Your Tempting Love (The Bennett Family series, book 5)

Author: Layla Hagen

Genre: Contemporary Romance

Release date: 17th February 2017




About Your Tempting Love (Book 5):

This is book 5 in The Bennett Family series, but can be read as a standalone since every book features a different couple.

Christopher Bennett is a persuasive man. With his magnetic charm and undeniable wit, he plays a key role in the international success of his family’s company.

Christopher adores his family, even if they can be too meddling sometimes… like when they recommend him to employ Victoria Hensley’s decorating services for his new apartment in an attempt to set him up with her. Christopher isn’t looking to settle down, but meeting Victoria turns his world upside down. Her laughter is contagious, and her beautiful lips and curves are too tempting.

Victoria Hensley is determined not to fall under Christopher’s spell, even though the man is hotter than sin, and his flirty banter makes her toes curl. But Christopher is her client, and she knows better than to get involved with clients. Besides, Victoria isn’t looking for love. After her parents’ death, Victoria is raising her much younger siblings, and she can’t afford any mistakes.

But Victoria and Christopher’s chemistry is not just the sparks-flying kind, but the downright explosive kind. Before she knows it, Christopher is training her brother Lucas for soccer tryouts and reading bedtime stories to her sister Chloe.

Victoria wants to resist him, but Christopher is determined, stubborn, and oh-so persuasive.

When their attraction and connection both spiral out of control, will they be able to risk it all for a love that is far too tempting?

Exclusive Excerpt

When I walk up Victoria’s porch on Saturday morning, I can hear a war waging inside the house.

“Chloe, you can’t wear that shirt again. It’s dirty. Take it off now.” Victoria’s voice sounds stern but tired.

“But I like it,” Chloe retaliates.

“It’s dirty and smelly,” Lucas says. “Why do you want to be smelly?”

For a few minutes, I wait outside the door for the spirits to calm down, but things just seem to escalate. It’s best if I announce my presence, even if I’m twenty minutes early.

The second I ring the bell, the voices die down but then start again, now as low whispers. After a few hurried orders of “behave” and “pick your socks up off the floor,” the door swings open.

“Hi,” I say.

“You’re here early,” Victoria exclaims. She wears a bright orange robe she desperately tightens around her. Clearly she meant to change before my arrival. Something is different about her this morning. There are shadows under her eyes, and she looks utterly disheveled. She looks down at the gym bag in my hand as if considering something.

“Should I wait outside, or in my car?” I joke because she seems to need some lighting up.

“God, no.” If possible, she gets even more flustered than before, shaking her head and opening the door wider. “Sorry, I’m a bit of a mess this morning.”

“There’s no need to explain yourself to me,” I assure her as I walk inside. The little devils are nowhere to be seen. “Where did the kids disappear to? I heard them when I walked up onto the porch.”

“Chloe agreed to change when she heard the doorbell. Sienna’s helping her. Lucas went to change into soccer-appropriate clothes. Do you need to change?”

“Nah, this will do. I’ll change into a new shirt afterward.” I point to the gym bag, in which I packed a towel, shower gel, and a new shirt.

“Sorry for my outfit. I meant to change into something decent, but….”

And maybe it’s because she seems to get more distressed by the second, but I resort to the one thing I know will take her mind off it.

“Hey, I’m a big proponent of indecency. You’d make my day if you told me you’re wearing a camisole underneath that.” Seeing her blush, I can’t help leaning in and adding in a slight whisper, “And no panties.”

My words have the desired effect of making her laugh. “I’m not even awake enough to come up with a witty reply to that. Let’s go in the kitchen. I’ll make you a sandwich.”

As I follow her, I actually make an effort to avoid ogling her round, perky ass. Her robe is tightened around her middle, which highlights her other curves more than I wish it would.

“Do you ever leave the house wearing just your robe?”

“I know my choice of clothes is oddly colorful sometimes, but I don’t go out of the house in what’s practically underwear.”

“Not even to get the mail or something?”

She turns around as we enter the small kitchen, pursing her lips. “What’s with all the questions?”

“Just wondering if any of your neighbors saw what I’m seeing right now. I might have to kill a few if the answer’s yes.”

“Territorial much?”

Her question takes me by surprise, and damn, I haven’t been territorial with a woman in a long time. Victoria keeps surprising me. Not only that, she makes me surprise myself, and that has never happened before. Maybe this is why, despite my best efforts, I can’t tone down the flirting. Okay, scratch that. I’m not even making a decent effort. If anything, I’m looking for any opportunity to make her blush.

A slow smile spreads on her face. “Just think about all those men who saw me in a bikini.”

I love this woman’s spirit and talent for banter. Still, that doesn’t make me less of an ass. All I want is to prop her up on this counter, bury myself inside her, and lure sounds of pleasure out of her delicious mouth.

Review: Dirty Money by Jessica Clare

Dirty Money by Jessica Clare

Roughneck Billionaires #1

I’m going to be completely forthright: Dirty Money is already one of my favorite books of 2017. Jessica Clare has outdone herself. This book is addictive! Truly, Jessica Clare has written a hero that hits every single button for me. I thought I loved her various billionaire books before but this book! OH THIS BOOK.

Boone Price is rich. Mega, super duper billionaire rich. Boone along with his brothers are big in the oil business and it has treated them well. Now Boone wants to show off his money because he’s tired of being treated like dirt by certain people in Texas. First things first, he’s going to acquire a realtor. When Boone sees Ivy Smithfield in an advertisement for a real estate firm, he decides right then and there that is who he wants. And Boone always gets what he wants. Ivy’s gorgeous looks and genteel manners have Boone convinced that she is the perfect woman to elevate him in society.

There is just one small problem. Ivy isn’t rich. She isn’t refined. She isn’t classy. Her veneer appeals to Boone but will he want her once he realizes she lives in a trailer and her roots are as poor as him? Ivy is struggling to make ends meet. She wants to send her sister to college and that means making real estate work. Boone’s commission is just what she needs but the more time she spends with him, the more time she wants to be honest and hope that he will love her just for who she really is.

First let me start by saying this book is DIRTY. The title fits this book very well! Boone is sex on a stick. He lavishes Ivy with attention. He yearns for intimacy with her even as she withholds the truth from him. And um, he likes to have sex with her, as often as possible. And his favorite thing to do involves his beard between her thighs. And Ivy LOVES it. Jessica Clare, I raise a glass to you because DAMN. Boone is a dream man.

I really liked Ivy a lot too though. She is doing her darn best to make a better life for herself and her sister. She is a hard worker, she is kind, and just a nice woman. I loved how Boone fell hard for her because well, Ivy could be an ordinary, every day woman. Someone I could see being friends with. It was wonderful seeing her get the special treatment from Boone because well, it’s kind of nice to see a hardworking woman get a truly off the charts hot guy.

I just really and truly loved this book. It is sweet, it is FUNNY. Jessica Clare has done great writing in Dirty Money. The dialog between Boone and Ivy is romantic, sweet, sexy, and tender. The dialog between Boone and his brothers is just what you’d expect from a group of men from humble roots who now have the world at their feet. And… there are some really funny scenes overall. You may never think of fire in quite the same way.

Anyway, my advice for 2017 is buy Dirty Money because if you love a hot, sexy romance with two characters who are just fabulous alone and even better together? You’re going to love this book. I truly cannot recommend it highly enough.

Dirty Money is available for purchase on January 17.
