Book Cover Reveal for Repeat Offender by Lani Lynn Vale....

A rough around the edges man, one who's not at all how the world sees him, pushes boundaries in order to preserve the world he's created for those he calls family in this gritty, sexy, and suspenseful story.  Keep reading to get a tempting glimpse of Repeat Offender by Lani Lynn Vale, then start counting down the days until this first installment in the Souls Chapel Revenants MC series hits bookshelves on January 12th, 2021 too!

Lynnwood Thatcher Windsor has lived a lot of lies. Seen a lot of good men go down.
But he will not stand by and watch as the world he’s built from the ground up burns to ashes before his eyes. Even if he has to build an army to combat the problem he sees brewing around him.
One step at a time, he carefully lays out his plan, building layer after careful layer until everything is where he wants it to be.
Every part is impeccably played, his pawns are in the perfect place, and then she barrels into his life, totally scattering every single piece he’s set in motion.
The bad thing is, she doesn’t even realize how badly she’s messed up until she’s roused the beast.
The day that Six Ines Broussard met Lynnwood Thatcher Windsor was the worst day of her life.
First, she has a public breakup with a man she’s not even dating. Second, she has to deal with a black-tie event that she’d rather gouge her eyes out than to go to. Third, she then has to sit at a table for hours on end with the one man she despises.
Just wanting a break, she thinks she’ll lose herself for a few hours and do what she loves to do best—spend time by herself and go for a walk in the middle of nowhere, spot some birds, and get a little sun.
Only, her day doesn’t go nearly as planned.
She walks right into the middle of hell. And at the center of it? Lynnwood Thatcher. The mayor. The man that she took one glance at on the night of his inauguration and dismissed as boring. A total stick in the mud.
Only, he’s not so boring shirtless, in the middle of nowhere, doing things that are very illegal.
At first, she’s appalled. Then her interest gets piqued. Stuck-up suit is hot! And he has tattoos. Oh, and let’s not forget one hell of a mouth on him!
Then he goes and kidnaps her, and she realizes that nobody is quite as hot as you thought they were when they’re now holding you hostage.

Reese Carlisle hates her life. Three years after her father’s arrest for one of the largest embezzlement schemes in history, twenty million dollars is still missing, and the world believes she knows where it is.
Two years after her brother’s death, they still think she killed him. One year later, she’s still hiding.
When the loneliness is too much, she seeks out strangers for one dark night, no questions asked. She makes up a name, puts on a disguise, and tries to forget.
One night she meets a new man. She tells him her name is Denise, she’s a dental assistant, and she loves dogs. He tells her she’s smart, she’s pretty, she’s funny. Things she hasn’t heard in too long.
Things that are too good to be true...


I undo my seatbelt and shove open the car door. Maybe it’s the cool air or the terror still pumping through my veins, but my exposed skin pebbles with goose bumps. I round the car but I’m still half-blind; the truck is right where he stopped, emerging from the invisible lane and pointed straight at me, the glaring light making it impossible to see. The silhouette of a figure starts to approach. It’s like a scene from every alien abduction movie, and I’m the newest test subject.
“Do I know you?” he asks.
I freeze. It’s that precipitous moment where I can climb into my car and drive away, or turn back and have this conversation. Yes, I’m Reese Carlisle. Yes, I was at the prison visiting my criminal father. No, I don’t know where the money is. No, I didn’t kill my brother.
“Who do you think I am?"
He takes a few steps toward me and my muscles tense, preparing to run. Right. Like I’m going to lead him on a chase through a corn field. I stopped running years ago.
“Denise,” he says.
The world stops spinning.
Only Doug knows Denise. And I can’t think of a single sane reason Doug would be parked along a dark country road on a Saturday night, accidentally scaring the crap out of me.
Except...he doesn’t sound like Doug.
He comes closer and I shift away, moving the glare of the headlights from my front and his back to right in between, and I see who it is.
The stranger.

Book Release Blast for Loathe Thy Neighbor: Roommate Romps by Teagan Hunter (REVIEW).....

Next door neighbors who've been having a subtle war of words for months find themselves fighting attraction once a fire has them living together as roommates in this fun and flirty rom-com.  Keep reading to get a tempting taste of Loathe Thy Neighbor by Teagan Hunter, along with my impressions of this delightful rom-com, then add this first installment in the Roommate Romps series to your bookshelf!

Don’t fall for your enemy...especially when he’s your new roommate.
Dean Evans is the worst.
Not only does the devil in disguise steal my pie on a regular basis, he also lives in the apartment right. Next. Door.
I see him all the time. At the mailboxes. In the elevator.
Every single morning.
It’s exhausting because he’s exhausting.
Now, after setting his apartment on fire, he’s my roommate...and he’s the worst at that too.
I don’t know what possessed me to let him stay with me. Pity, perhaps? I do know that I won’t be falling for his charm.
Or that panty-dropping smirk.
His quick wit.
That body he works so hard for.
Nope. Not falling for any of it...least of all him.
There might be a fine line between love and hate, but I know exactly where I stand.



When it comes to witty banter teeming with sensuality and snark, I can count on Ms. Hunter to give me all that and more.  With this new release readers are introduced to three close-knit women whose lives begin to play out in front of us with humor, sass, sexiness, and the promise of more to come as this series progresses.  Starting out as next door enemies the main couple of this book have been waging a war on each other, one teeming with sexual tension, but the moment they become roommates is the moment when their relationship turns romantic in a journey that put a smile on my face.

Dean Evans is the teacher next door, the kind of teacher that all the kids love for the caring and cool vibe he gives off.  He's sexy, funny, and a gentleman when he wants to be least he is around everyone except his neighbor River.  Around her, he pushes every one of her buttons in a subtle sexual tug of war as the attraction between them is more than obvious from the very start.  I found Dean an utter delight! He comes from a family of money, a sport-fueled past that could've left him arrogant but endeared him to me all the more as he became a coach for youth football.  He's the kind of guy you wish really existed as he's good with kids, is a romantic at heart, and is someone you can count on.  He's the quintessential book boyfriend and I thoroughly enjoyed him and River together in a journey of endless verbal foreplay that ultimately led to fireworks!

River White's a hard-working heroine with a string of bad dates and exes unworthy of her when readers first meet her.  Coming off yet another bad date she's determined to focus solely on her business while trying to ignore her annoying next door neighbor.  That's difficult to do though when he's so entwined in her life as the teacher (and father figure) to her nephew, as the next door neighbor who plays Bob Sager every morning at 5:30 AM, and the man who always steals the last piece of cherry pie at her favorite eatery.  Through each interaction the connection between them crackles as the attraction bubbling below the surface becomes harder to ignore...especially when they become roommates.  River's a wonderful heroine, tough when necessary, but clearly kindhearted when it comes to her friends.  She's quick to hug and support those in her small circle of friends, while giving as good as she gets when it comes to sparring with Dean.  She’s a serious-minded soul, but with Dean she started to enjoy life with him as her sexual tour guide.

This was an entertaining romance from the first page to the last courtesy of witty and sexy banter, humorous exchanges between the main couple, and an equally delightful cast of secondary characters and endearing pets.  Maya, River's long-time friend and a teenage mother whose son Sam was a fun part of the story too, was a good support to River and didn't hesitate to call her out when needed in a realistic friendship that warmed my heart.  Caroline, a worker at River's store, was another delight as she too didn't hesitate in pointing out the truth to River about her unacknowledged attraction to Dean.  Caroline was a quiet character, one struggling with low self-esteem, so her observations spoke volumes. Both of these women left their mark on me as I wanted to be their friend too and greatly anticipate their stories as Caroline herself has a friend who could easily become more while Maya deserves her own HEA after being a single mom for so long.  Add in Leo, the emotional support turtle, and Morris the cat and you have even more reasons to smile.  On a whole this was a perfect series starter with a decadently delightful blend of steam and snark and I look forward to the next installment in this series!

My rating for this is an A.

*I got this book from the author for review in exchange for my honest opinion.


I'm a Missouri-raised gal, but currently live in North Carolina with my US Marine husband and 9-year-old dog. I spend my days begging him for a cat, and I survive off coffee, pizza, and sarcasm. When I'm not writing, you can find me binge- watching various TV shows, especially Supernatural and One Tree Hill. I like cold weather, buy more paperbacks than I'll ever read, and I never say no to brownies.
Writing is my passion, and this is just the beginning of my journey.

Book Tour for Thanks For Last Night by Lauren Blakely......

Readers looking for a sexy story teeming with crackling encounters and witty banter between two friends who unexpectedly become oh so much more will be celebrating today with this new release.  Keep reading to get a tempting taste of Thanks For Last Night by Lauren Blakely, then add this third installment in The Guys Who Got Away series to your bookshelf!

A sexy new friends-to-lovers standalone!
Let me list the reasons why dating a sexy, charming, pro hockey star is a bad idea:
1. He’s one of my closest friends
2. All our friends are friends
3. The wounds I’ve got from past relationships go deep. And so do his.
We’re both devoutly single -- it’s just safer for the heart that way. But there’s no reason not to bid on the gorgeous, clever athlete at the charity auction this weekend. If I win, it’ll be a friendsdate. And I do win. I win him big.
And hard.
And all night long.
The trouble is...what happens in the morning?
