Lexa Kozlov must pay off her family's massive debt to the mob...all while raising even more money to save her little sister. The result? A never-ending (and incredibly illegal) stakeout for the Bratva. Lexa barely has time to sleep, let alone find love.
Enter Caelin Vass, the handsome Scotsman who runs Empire Investments. Caelin offers Lexa a new job with dollars galore, as well as a hot bod (his own) to contemplate every workday. Even so, Lexa isn’t sure. Freaky things keep happening whenever Lexa and Caelin are alone. The energy between them is magical, sensual, and way overwhelming.
Is Lexa leaving her old prison just to enter a worse one...or is Caelin Vass all he seems and more?
***12,000 word novella, previously published on Kindle Vella as Blood Slave***


I've never wanted anyone more than Caelin Vass. Never hated a man so much, either.
Vass looms before me right now. He's all broad-shoulders, brown hair, and searing dark eyes. Imagine a Celtic god in a three-piece suit; that's the general idea. We stand in his office—a place that's all plush leather chairs and heavy wooden furniture.
Sadly, Vass and I aren't alone. Some chick in a kimono kneels before him. She toys with his belt buckle with ill intent. And by ill intent, I mean she's about to give my potential employer a blow job.
In his fancypants office. Right in front of me.
Wish I could say this is the first time something like this happened. It isn't. I also wish I didn't want to punch Kimono Chick in the throat and take her place.
Yet I do.
Still, I must stay away from Vass' pants and get this gig. Why? It pays one hundred grand a month. For someone like me, that money's literally a life-saver.
Across the room, Kimono Chick smirks so hard, it's a wonder her face doesn't get stuck that way. "Join in or get out."
Meanwhile, Vass stares at me with a smoking hot look that makes my thighs clench. He knows the affect all this has on me.
Stupid Vass.
Stupid thighs.
Which leads to a big decision: do I go for the job, the belt buckle, or the door?
Tough call.

Book Teaser Reveal for Off the Record by Annmarie Boyle…….

 A woman's carefully ordered life falls apart the night she gives into the temptation of her brother's bandmate in a flirtatious romance with a doggy matchmaker.  Keep reading to get a tempting taste of Off the Record by Annmarie Boyle, then start counting down the days until this third installment in the Storyhill Musicians series hits bookshelves on September 6th!

Ever since the day her life flipped upside down, Bridget Hayes obeys a carefully crafted plan. And it works. Or it did. Until the night of her brother’s wedding, when she throws out all her rules—in spectacular fashion and finds herself in bed with one of her brother's bandmates. What had she been thinking? She caved to the one thing she can’t control—her longtime crush on a tall, charismatic, ginger of a man...who also happens to be ONE OF HER BROTHER'S BEST FRIENDS.
Blake Kelly knows two things for sure: happily-ever-after is a myth and Bridget Hayes is risk personified. Doesn’t matter that he’s been attracted to her since her brother uttered the words, “Meet my sister.” Getting close to her could blow up the band. And the band is his family. He can’t risk matter how much he wants a repeat performance.
Armed with a pact—tell no one—they return to their regularly scheduled lives. Because in a city of nine million people, what are the chances they’ll bump into each other anytime soon?
Nada. Zip. Zilch.
That is, until a rescue pup named Destiny turns out to be less dog and more cupid in a fur coat.




Annmarie Boyle is a connoisseur of yoga pants, Sharpies, and fancy coffee drinks. She loves to create stories about strong, smart, and sexy women tackling some of life’s biggest issues—while finding their happily-ever-after along the way. Throw in a lot of laughter and a fabulous supporting cast of characters and you’ve got the stories she both loves to write and read. She enjoys traveling the world but spends most of her time in a sleepy Midwestern town overlooking a lazy river with her husband, who, after 20+ years, still makes her believe in happily-ever-afters.

Book Release Blast for Hanson by Kat Savage (REVIEW)…….

 Readers will find yet another sexy, tattooed, and drool-worthy hero courtesy of Ms. Savage and her older woman/younger man romance of a single mom and the determined man used to getting what he wants as they travel down a rocky road to HEA. Keep reading to get a tempting taste of Hanson by Kat Savage, along with my impressions of it, then add this fourth installment in the Men of Bird's Eye series to your bookshelf too!

Hanson Serrano is a complicated man—even his therapist tries to convince him to put his trust in someone. But the youngest member of the Bird’s Eye crew isn’t too concerned. He’s got no plans to settle down anytime soon.
That is, until he runs into Thea James—literally. One nasty spill on the sidewalk later, and this brooding Brazilian can’t take his eyes off her fiery red curls and curvy backside. Though, the interaction makes it clear he’ll have to work for this one.
Thea James is looking for something very specific—and Hanson Serrano isn’t it. Nevermind the fact that he’s tattooed from neck to toe, but he’s also much younger than her. She’s been down the bad boy road before and all she has to show for it is her single mom status and an ex that makes her life miserable.
When Thea finally agrees to one date in an effort to halt Hanson’s chase, she’s pleasantly surprised when he pulls out all the stops. In fact, it’s the best date she’s ever been on.
The pair eventually get tangled up—in their feelings and between the sheets. But between Hanson’s walls, Thea’s ex, and a nagging age gap, their blooming relationship feels like a shipwreck waiting to happen.
As the couple navigates this ocean of obstacles, will they give up and abandon ship or find a way to get in the lifeboat and row together?


BUY FOR $2.99 here.


Well folks, that's all she wrote!  And what a delight this series has been throughout these four books!  With each turn of the page, readers discovered a supportive and unconventional family of sexy tattoo artists with painful pasts that made for rocky roads to HEA.  Hanson gives us much of the same in a charming and sizzling read with a bit of angst, and a lot of heart and soul, that put a smile on my face.

From the moment readers were first introduced to Hanson Serrano they saw a quiet and reserved young man.  They saw a man judged by others for all his tattoos but who doesn't care as he lives life for himself and those he cares about.  There's also been an air of mystery surrounding him, a mystery of a painful past that still weighs on him today and has him claiming the men and women of the Bird's Eye Crew as his family. These people mean everything to him and he'd do anything for them in interactions that warmed my heart and made me fall even further in love with him.  The day he meets single mom Thea James is a life-altering moment for him with a sizzling instant attraction that has him working hard to win her over.  Hanson's a wonderful hero, one who exudes energy, one with a big heart very much on display as he works to convince Thea that their younger man/older woman relationship can work.  In slow and sizzling interactions he shows her what HEA will look like if she just gives them a chance.

Thea James is a teacher and single mom, a woman with a nasty ex who's trying to date but who finds herself immediately attracted to the younger tattooed man who's been picking up his niece daily...while trying to pick her up too.  Thea's an immensely likable heroine, one who's just the person Hanson needs to share his painful past with.  She's a mama bear too when it comes to her young son Ethan and the two of them are a heartwarming addition to the Bird's Eye family.

On a whole this was a quick read with a lot of heart and soul.  Hanson and Thea were both sweet and sizzling together in a romance that I was invested in from the very beginning.  Add in Ethan and you have the most amazing unconventional family...and the most satisfying end to a series!  The men of the Bird's Eye crew may look rough and tough, but they have big hearts that will pull you in from the very first page to the last!

My rating for this is an A.

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


Kat Savage resides in Louisville, Kentucky with her three beautiful children, her hunky spouse, and two spoiled dogs. She secretly has hope of getting chickens one day.
By day, she’s an office manager, pushing paperwork and daydreaming. When she’s not at her nine-to-five, she’s writing. Or thinking about writing. Or preparing books and book stuff. Or quite possibly, designing stuff for other people’s books.
She was driven to writing out of a need for distraction and self-preservation after the death of her sister in 2013. Since then, it’s snowballed into a full blown passion she can’t escape. Even on the toughest days, she wouldn’t want to.
She writes poetry packed with real, raw, and sometimes ugly truths. She won’t lie. Her goal is to make you ache, in that perfect delicious way we often secretly crave.
Shortly after putting her poetry and prose out into the world, she turned to novel writing. Savage is a natural storyteller, getting better with each book. She tries to give the characters in her novels depth, whether they’re serious or comical, she builds them in layers with the hope that you see a little of yourself in some of them.

Book Cover Reveal for So Not Meant to Be by Meghan Quinn…..

Frenemies become roommates before unexpectedly becoming more in this fun and flirty rom-com.  Keep reading to get a tempting glimpse of So Not Meant to Be by Meghan Quinn, then start counting down the days until this book hits shelves on June 7th!

Are you ready for J.P. Cane?!
A perfect gentleman isn’t going to make you scream the way I can...
From USA Today and Amazon Charts bestselling author Meghan Quinn, comes a fresh take on a romantic comedy classic, When Harry Met Sally. This steamy, laugh-out-loud, enemies to lovers romance is about an annoyingly handsome coworker and the woman who refuses to be charmed by him.
Am I friends with JP Cane?
Ha! That's laughable.
Besides the fact that he’s adopted some far-fetched notion from the movie When Harry Met Sally that says men and women can't be friends and work together, it’s safe to say we're not friends. He's annoyingly loud, obnoxiously handsome, and has made an art out of poking all my hot buttons...multiple times a day.
So you can imagine how disgruntled I am when I not only have to fly to San Francisco with him for work, but stay in the same penthouse. Yup, we're sharing the same air, twenty-four-seven. We're talking full-fledged working roommates.
The man doesn't know what it means to wear a shirt, thrives off protein bars, and you guessed it, moans loud enough for people to believe he's Meg Ryan in a restaurant.
Spoiler Alert: I WON'T be having what he's having.
Tack on his continuous flirting and his polished good looks, and I'm caught staring down the barrel of a seductive temptation that makes it hard for me to sleep at night.
But guess who can control herself? This girl.
Because if there is one thing I know for certain, it's that JP Cane and I are so not meant to be.


***Stella Hunter and Aaron Shedlock are narrating this sizzling hot, hilarious romance in duet, and they are stunning as JP and Kelsey! SO NOT MEANT TO BE will be released on June 7th in a live release on Audible, so get ready to dive into this aural sensation!***

Book Release Blast for Grimm Wolves MC (Books 1-4) Box Set by DM Earl (REVIEW)…….

 See where it all began with the sexy and suspenseful first four books in the Grimm Wolves MC series!  Learn about the painful pasts of these men who now live on the edge of the law while making things right along the way.  See them fall in love, end fall in love with them in return, while waiting for the next unforgettable addition to this raw and gritty world.  Keep reading to get a tempting taste of the Grimm Wolves MC (Books 1-4) Box Set by DM Earl, along with my impressions of it, then add it to your bookshelf!

Take a ride with D.M. Earl and her Grimm Wolves MC. Start with this box set which includes Books One through Four.
Members-Prospects-Their stories show that family is not always the one you’re born in.
‘Live and let live—ride ‘til ya die—brothers not of blood but of the club.’
Meet the Grimm Wolves MC and see why you shouldn’t always judge a book by its cover.
How does a man live two lives? One with honor as a firefighter and the other questionable as a Nomad in a Motorcycle Club. Add into the already confusing mix an unbelievable skill set that allows him the uncanny ability to absorb other’s thoughts and emotions. Francis M Stein aka Stitch is surviving the best he can with the hand he has been dealt. He has found an extended family in his brothers in both his firehouse and MC.
“Bottom of the Chains-Prospect”
My life has sucked for as far back as I can remember. My folks didn’t want me, so I was thrown into foster care. Let me just say lots of fun. NOT. Then one day, my life took a dramatic change. My circumstances improved greatly. I met The Grimm Wolves MC, and they took me under their wing. I became not only a prospect but also part of their brotherhood.
“Santa…Nope The Grimm Wolves”
What happens when your past pounds on your door and you lose the little control you have over your own life? Cesar ‘Beast’ Ironhorse struggles with which road to take when a new threat storms into his life. As he is blackmailed, he needs to find a way out not only for himself, but also for his family, who he has sworn to protect. As luck would have it his well-intended play goes to crap, so Beast involves his brothers from his club the Grimm Wolves MC.
“Keeping Secrets-Prospect”

An honorable man: soldier, lover, father, and friend. How did this happen? When did the lies begin? How can one man be expected to keep them all straight, even knowing the consequences deep down to his soul if he doesn’t? Lenny ‘Iron’ Fensley realizes each day is truly a gift in his world. Not only is his life but also the lives of the two most important people in the world, his baby girl and the woman he loves, are in constant danger? A danger he never saw coming when he was doing his duty serving his country.




After reading the emotionally intense fifth book in this series (which has now left me breathlessly waiting for the second half of the book) I knew I had to go back to get greater insight into the Grimm Wolves MC.  From the very first book (which is a bit rough around the edges) you'll find yourself captivated by the writing and completely invested in the complex characters who aren't all good but aren't the bad guys either.

Behemoth is an intriguing start to a series that just gets stronger as it goes along.  With a hint of the paranormal, and only a small taste of the MC life, this book still pulls you in courtesy of the steamy romance between the psychic Francis and mama bear Grace.

Bottom of the Chains is a novella, a quick read that touches on events in the previous book.  Bullet is a man clearly struggling under the weight of a painful past, a past that is taking his Club towards danger, a past that he's just starting to discover the truth about. When readers meet him he's feeling lost and thinks himself unlovable.  With his introduction to the feisty heroine Clementine, and with the unwavering support of his Club though, he'll hopefully find his HEA....if he can indeed survive his past.

Santa…Nope The Grimm Wolves is a festive thrill ride that kept me glued to the pages while rooting for Beast every step of the way.  Beast is a man devoted to his wife Cathy and son Rider.  Thus far he's lived his life one step ahead of his dangerous past, but when he's blackmailed he can run no longer.  With everything starting to fall apart he finally goes to his Club and they show why they're a family by going above and beyond to help him keep his wife and child safe.  There's a lot of heart and soul in this book as the brothers all come together to help Beast, sharing their painful pasts in a story that pulled at my heartstrings.  Cathy was a wonderful heroine, someone who told it like it was in numerous laugh out loud exchanges.  Add in little Rider and you have an endearing family you hope gets just what they want for Christmas.

Keeping Secrets is a great conclusion to the collection and another gritty and gripping addition to the series.  It's a perfect segue into book five and will have you on edge while reading this book and while waiting for the next.  This is a raw and intensely emotional story that shows the damage that secrets can do.  And, oh my...the secrets surrounding both Iron and Chains are implosive!  Their secrets are in fact intertwined which has Chains stepping in to help Iron finally leave his past behind so he can make a HEA with his wife Joy and baby girl Emery.  Chains doesn't come out unscathed though as his secrets really come back to harm him, and those he's loved in secret, in the next book which is alluded to in this installment.

On a whole this is a compelling series.  It might've started out a bit bumpy, a bit choppy, but it's really come into its own.  The storyline is complex, gritty, not shying away from the darkness in people's hearts and lives to make for edge of your seat suspense.  The romance is erotically-charged, and with Chains, we get a triad relationship as well as m/f involving the other couples.  There's sweetness, sensuality, and above all there's these tough guys are willing to show their vulnerabilities in order to win the hearts of those they love.  It's an enticing thrill ride that I definitely recommend and a well-crafted addition to the genre!

My rating for this is an A.

Book Tour for Ryker by Samantha Lind (REVIEW)…….

 A hockey player trying to have it all finds himself needing help and relying on his next door neighbor in this charming single father, hockey-fueled romance.  Keep reading to get a tempting taste of Ryker by Samantha Lind, along with getting my impressions of it, then add this first installment in the San Francisco Shockwaves series to your bookshelf!

After years of trying to get back home to be closer to my daughter, I finally secured a spot on the newly expanded San Francisco Shockwaves.
Juggling being the newly appointed Captain of the team and taking on full-time fatherhood to a teenager sends my life into chaos.
I quickly find myself needing someone who can pick up the pieces and keep my life in order as I certainly can’t do it alone.
I just never thought my savior would be the sexy woman next door--the one I can’t keep my mind or eyes off every chance I get.

BUY here.


Hockey romances seem to be all the rage right now!  Scanning the shelves there's numerous series to choose from, books offering something for everyone.  it's hard to make a place for something new though, which is how I felt about this book.  Much about it was familiar with a storyline that got straight to the point without any real obstacles putting the main couple's future in doubt.

Ryker Jorgensen has just been traded to the San Francisco Shockwaves as the new Captain of their team.  It's a dream come true, as is taking over as caregiver to his teenage daughter Ellie.  Upon moving into his new home he meets his enticing neighbor...with sparks resulting.  He's drawn to Avery from the very start in a steamy connection that builds with each turn of the page.  Ryker's an appealing single dad, one who exudes sexy vibes and a loving heart.  His actions make him a drool-worthy hero who's a beautiful balance to Avery.

Avery Reid's an immensely appealing heroine, smart and sassy, who works from home which makes her the perfect chaperone to the young Ellie.  Theirs is a heartwarming pairing, one with a familial vibe that made for some very endearing moments. Meanwhile, the romance between Ryker and Avery seemed to be on the back burner as he was often on the road.  What readers did get to see though, with Ryker juggling his hockey career with his personal life, was a sweet and sexy story between a couple that was easy to relate to while they created a new family.

This was an easy read with sweet and sensual intimacy between strong and secure adults as well as loving interactions between parent and child.  Getting to see glimpses of the other Shockwaves also made for many temptations and excitement for the future as I look forward to other players taking center ice.  On a whole this was an enjoyable read, familiar but well-crafted.

My rating for this is a B.
