Survival of the Richest, an all-new emotional and romantic standalone from New York Times bestselling author Skye Warren, is coming June 12th!
SurvivalOfTheRichest-Facebook (1).jpg
Blurb: A Park Avenue princess…My story starts with a plunge into the cold water of Manhattan’s harbor. A strong hand hauls me back onto the deck of the luxury yacht. Christopher was supposed to be my enemy, the son of my mother’s latest husband. Instead he protects me with fierce determination when I need him most.

This tale begins with a fall, but it doesn’t end there. Because another man wants me.

Sutton wants to consume me with a passion more feral than kind. In the lush emotional wilderness I’m not sure I want Christopher to save me this time…or if there will be anything left if he tries.

SURVIVAL OF THE RICHEST is a book about finding your soul’s desire, even if the search leads you places you never expect. A woman torn between two men. An impossible choice. And a war fought on the most dangerous battlefield–the heart.

Top 5 Wednesday: Best Sports Romance Books

Top 5 Wednesday @ Goodreads (moderated by Lainey) – Each week is a different topic to pick 5 of your favorite/best for. There are a lot of topics but this week I wanted to focus on Sports Romance and talk about my favorite ones!

#5 Lucky by Carina Adams
carina
My thoughts: I don’t like football, at all. HOWEVER there is something about sports romance books that focus on football that I actually really like! Weird I know, but bare with me please! Lucky was a huge surprise for me but I loved this story and Adams is a fantastic writer with a great sense of humor. Not to mention the chemistry between Sunshine and Lucian is electric hot and the way they meet is just hilarious but I won’t spoil it for you. Lucien is also super, super sexy and honestly he just made me swoon! If you’re a fan of sports romance and football romance, you definitely need to read or add Lucky to your TBR list!

Blurb:  Everyone loves Lucky # 7.
He’s the whole package – smart, athletic, and sexy as sin.
A filthy talking bad boy, he can have any woman he wants.

Except me. A chance encounter. One unforgettable night.
That’s all we could ever have. At least, that’s what we tell ourselves.
 Fate has other plans.
 
If anyone found out, I would lose my job.
He could lose his scholarship.
Some things are worth the risk.
 
Sometimes, you have to cross your fingers,

Roll the dice, and hope lady luck is on your side.

#4: Home Run King by Stacey Lynn
HomeRunKing_ecover
My thoughts: I was SO excited when I first signed up to review Home Run King because honestly besides football, there wasn’t a lot of versatility when it came to sports romance and a lot of books were focused on just football. So when I saw that Stella was releasing a sports romance book about baseball, I was pumped! Home Run King was such a sweet, funny read and I love books that focus on blossoming relationships. Most of the time you start a book and BOOM! The couple are suddenly in love which isn’t the case for this book and I really liked that change. 

Blurb: My life was what country songs are made of: my Granny died, my girlfriend broke up with me, I knocked up her cousin, and I was inducted into the Major League Hall of Fame. Yup…just like every country song I’ve ever heard.

But let me start over…my name is Gage Nix. That’s all you need to know. Actually, there’s a lot more to Gage than meets the eye. My name’s Katie Crisp, and I had a front row seat and the inside scoop. In a moment of grief and desperation, I allowed the Home Run King to…well, hit a home run on my diamond. He not only knocked it out of the park, but he also knocked me up. 

Raising two babies—the one I was carrying, and Gage—wasn’t what I signed up for. But he gave me no choice. I only wish I hadn’t waited until the end of the season to see that he was my MVP. Oh, and the only hall of fame he’s ever been inducted into is his own.

#3 Filthy Player by Stacey LynnFlithyPlayer-ANMy thoughts: Again another football sports romance but another favorite of mine! Stacey Lynn has this wonderful way of mixing real life problems within her books and it’s so relatable that it makes me feel closer to her characters. Beaux and Paige are one of my favorite fictional contemporary romance couples EVER and Beaux is one steamy, dirty talking, kind man. Definitely one of my favorites and there are other books in the series too! 

Blurb: The Raleigh Rough Riders are back, and this time Super Bowl Quarterback Beaux Hale finds himself playing the most important game of his life.

Every woman knows Beaux Hale is nothing but a player. Yet the first time he walks into Paige Halloway’s restaurant and flashes his sexy grin, she feels a heat between them spark. Too bad he opens his mouth and ruins it.

He may think his money, fame, and sexy looks will attract any woman—but he’s wrong.Paige doesn’t have time for a man. She’s too busy keeping a roof over her head and taking care of her father to care about relationships.

Lucky for Beaux, he’s a man who’s ready to use all the plays at his disposal. He didn’t bring his team a Super Bowl victory by giving up at the first block in his path—and Paige Halloway has just become his new long-game. Beaux also knows that sometimes, in order to win and claim your prize, you have to get a little bit filthy.

#2 Team Player A Christmas Anthology
TeamPlayerBookCover6x9_MEDIUM
My thoughts: Team Player is a great sports romance read because it is a long read but includes so many different kinds of sports! Baseball, football, MMA fighters, hockey, oh my! Lots of different stories and lots of love storys and hunks to swoon over. Perfect for anyone who wants a little taste of everything when it comes to sports romance. 

Blurb: Hot jocks. We love them all. Sexy baseball players. Intense footballers. Sweaty MMA fighters, and sizzling hockey hotties. Score!

The good news? Eleven bestselling authors have gathered to give you a set of stories focused on the men we love most—sports heroes. We bet you’ll love this thick…book. The bad news? The men in these novellas don’t actually exist.

*This anthology does not contain calories, just eleven original, never-before-seen stories by the following authors: Adriana Locke, Mandi Beck, Charleigh Rose, Kennedy Ryan, LJ Shen, Meghan Quinn, Rochelle Paige, Ella Fox, Kate Stewart, Emma Scott, and Sara Ney.

#1 Real by Katy Evans
real
My thoughts: If you read my blog and reviews, you should KNOW that I am a Katy Evans fangirl. I’m not afraid to admit it, I am! So it shouldn’t be a surprise to you that Real by Katy Evans is #1 for my Top 5 Wednesday Sports Romance. I love Remington Tate so much, he is the embodiment of athleticism, health goals and oozes sex appeal by just looking at you. Real is my favorite book of all time and every romance reader/sports romance lover should read Real! 

Blurb: Remington Tate has a bad-boy rep in and out of the ring, a granite-hard body, and a raw, animal power that sends his female fans into a frenzy. But from the moment their eyes lock, the only woman he wants is Brooke Dumas. His desire is pure, all-consuming, and REAL.

Hired to keep his perfect body working like a machine, Brooke finally has the lucrative sports therapy job she’s been dreaming of. But as she tours the dangerous underground fighting circuit with Remy and his team, Brooke’s own body becomes alive with the most primal of hungers. If what happens between Brooke and Remy is ever as light as a flirtation, it quickly becomes an erotic obsession for them both, and promises so much more.

But their white-hot lust has a dark side—and when Remy’s deepest secret comes to light and Brooke’s familial duties demand action, will the pair be able to hang on, or will everything that once seemed so real suddenly fade away like an illusion?

Monthly Series Mention: The Stage Dive Series by Kylie Scott

Sometimes I like to pick out competed series because let’s be honest, no one likes waiting around for books! So I thought why not review a completed series? I used to do this all the time when my blog was on blogger instead of wordpress but I’m bringing it back! For May   I am choosing the Stage Dive series by the fabulous Kylie Scott! I am so excited to share this series with you guys! It is one of my absolute favorite series with characters and stories that I adore. Kylie is incredibly funny, the kind of funny that makes you laugh out loud days later after finishing one of her books. Something else that I really admire about Kylie’s writing is the fact that she has diverse female heroines, especially with their looks. Newsflash, not every woman in this world is size two and that is something that is evident in the Stage Dive series which I really appreciate. I love all of the stories, characters in this series and speaking of characters, the chemistry between these characters in this series,!! Oh my goodness you guys! I can guarantee you are going to fall head over heels just like I did! So let’s dive in!
Stage.dive-series-1024x370.png
The CoverThe Stage Dive series has some of my favorite covers EVER. I tend to either love or hate a cover, there is no in between and I’m very picky when it comes to book covers. Frankly, sometimes people only buy books based on covers so I think it’s important for authors nowadays to have kick ass covers that relate to their story and characters. The Stage Dive series does this perfectly; each book represents different members of the band Stage Dive, Lick represents David (the guitarist), Play represents Mal(the drummer), Lead  represents Jimmy(the singer) and Deep represents Ben(the bassiest). My favorite cover is Play because I love Mal and the story within Play very much. A+ covers guys!

Basics: The Stage Dive series is a total of four books, usually between 300 and 200 pages long. Lick is the first book, followed by Play, then Lead and ending with Deep. The books were published between November 2013 and March 2015. They were published by St. Martin’s Griffin. Genre wise The Stage Dive series belongs to contemporary romance. 

Description:  LicK: Waking up in Vegas was never meant to be like this.

Evelyn Thomas’s plans for celebrating her twenty-first birthday in Las Vegas were big. Huge. But she sure never meant to wake up on the bathroom floor with a hangover to rival the black plague, a very attractive half-naked tattooed man in her room, and a diamond on her finger large enough to scare King Kong. Now if she could just remember how it all happened. One thing is certain, being married to one of the hottest rock stars on the planet is sure to be a wild ride.

***Note: I’m only going to post the description of Lick, all of the characters in each other (but especially in Lick) are all intertwined so I don’t want to spoil anything for future readers! ***
lick-teaser.jpg
Overall thoughts: The Stage Dive series is such a fun series full of bad situations with bad pasts and history, but it’s lovely and interesting to read about how hot rocker male’s fall in love fighting falling in love or just falling in love and overcoming their demons and hardships. Kylie Scott writes beautifully, her writing is laugh out loud funny and the romance is perfect and steamy. I think everyone can relate to several situations and characters in this series which is one of the reasons why I love it so much, I felt connected to the books. These books will have a piece of my heart forever and I hope the Stage Dive series touches you the way it has touched me.

Character Chemistry Rating 5/5 Shells
5 shells
Favorite Quotes:
  “Love isn’t always smooth or straightforward. It can be messy and painful … Doesn’t mean it isn’t still the most incredible thing that can ever happen to you.” -Lick

“We’ve broken my bed,” I said, stating the obvious.
“In battle, sacrifices must be made, pumpkin.” -Play

“The truth is, I’m all about you, Lena. You’re my best friend. You’re my girl.” -Lead

“Dicks don’t have brains. It’s why men get into trouble”  -Deep

Review: Dirty by Kylie Scott

*Originally posted 10/7/16 on blogger before I moved to wordpress**
I am currently in the path of Hurricane Matthew and since it hasn’t hit yet I thought it would be the perfect time to get some reading done and write up some reviews! The first book I chose to read for Hurricane Matthew was Dirty by Kylie Scott. I am a big, big fan of Kylie Scott, I fell in love with both her Stage Dive series and her Flesh series. So I had big expectations for her new series and first book, Dirty. The great thing about her Dive Bar series is that it’s based in the same world as the Stage Dive series but with different characters and different scenarios. You can read the Dive Bar series as a standalone but I highly recommend reading the Stage Dive series as well. But without further ago, let’s dive in this review!

dirty.jpg
Cover: I really find myself drawn to Scott’s covers because she has a certain theme with them, usually a handsome gentleman with only half of his face showing. I really like this concept for a a book cover because the guy doesn’t have a face, so it’s easier for you as the reader to visualize what the guy on the cover looks like and you can make it your own! Which is especially great because when it comes to reading everyone has different ideas of what certain characters in books look like in their own heads. I also like the fact that a martini glass is also featured because it fits in with the story.  A+ for the cover.

Basics: Dirty was released on April 19th, 2016, is 289 pages long and is published by St. Martin’s Griffin. Genre wise Dirty belongs to contemporary romance.

Description: Love—on the rocks. The last thing Vaughan Hewson expects to find when he returns to his childhood home is a broken hearted bride in his shower, let alone the drama and chaos that come with her.

Lydia Green doesn’t know whether to scream or cry in a corner. Discovering the love of your life is having an affair on your wedding day is bad enough. Finding out it’s with his best man is another thing all together. Just when this runaway bride has nowhere left to turn, a handsome stranger offers her a broad, muscular shoulder to cry on. Vaughan is the exact opposite of the picture perfect, respected businessmen she’s normally drawn to.

This former musician-turned-bartender is rough around the edges and is facing his own crossroads.  But Lydia’s already tried Mr. Right and discovered he’s all wrong–maybe it’s time to give Mr. Right Now a chance. After all, what’s wrong with getting dirty?
Dirty is the first book in the Dive Bar series from bestselling author Kylie Scott.

dirty-teaser-330.jpgOverall thoughts: I really enjoyed this book! Kylie Scott just has this way of drawing you in with her humor and also using certain relatable issues to tug on your heartstrings. In every book I have read of Scott’s, I find myself empathetic to at least one or more of her characters. When you can see yourself going through the same issue a character is going through in a book, you feel yourself fusing to the story and characters so much. There’s nothing better than falling in love with a book, one that you can especially relate to. The connection between Vaughn and Lydia was very refreshing; the way they met was funny and I really enjoyed how both of them were in difficult situations but leaned on each other to get through those difficult situations, The plot was really well done too; I think it’s very hard to keep readers interesting when it comes a nonfiction romance and Scott did a really fantastic job of keeping me intrigued. Everyone comes from somewhere, whether growing up in a small town or big city, there’s that feeling of home and being surrounded by the ones you love. In most cases when people think about going home that means seeing family and old friends, a theme that plays a big party in Dirty. Both good and drama filled, but that’s what makes it interesting right? I think my only complaint of this book would be the length, I loved it so much that I wish it was just a little bit longer! But don’t we all feel that way when we really enjoy a book? I’m looking forward to learning more about the crew of Coeur d’Alene and seeing how each of their stories pans out.  Bring on more of the Dive Bar series! 

Dirty-Teaser-2.jpg
Couple Chemistry Rating: 5/5 Shells
5 shells
Favorite Quotes: “I looked down. Yes, something was definitely hardening in the front of his pants. Huh. We hadn’t even used tongue. And they said romance was dead.”

“I can’t say I know exactly what it feels like to be nailed to a door. But the way Vaughn did it made for one hell of an experience.” 
“Trust me, never mock a romance book, You have no idea the amount of good they can do for you between the sheets and on the streets. If you love your girl? Buy her books.”

It’s Monday, What Are You Reading? (Book Blogger Meme)

It’s Monday! What Are You Reading? is a place to meet up and share what you have been, are and about to be reading over the week.  It’s a great post to organise yourself. It’s an opportunity to visit and comment, and er… add to that ever growing TBR pile! So welcome in everyone. This meme started with J Kaye’s Blog   and then was taken up by Sheila from Book Journey. Sheila then passed it on to Kathryn at the Book Date.
divider 3.gif
I actually finished my ARC’s for the first half of May, CAN YOU BELIEVE IT?! It’s a miracle! But seriously I haven’t done that in a very long time so it’s a huge accomplishment, who knows what my schedule will like for the rest of the month but I have a feeling that I will be drowning in ARC’S. No complaints though, but more ARC’s = less time for me to pick out my own books to review. So lately I’ve been trying to catch up with my TBR list and several books I’ve had on hold for Kindle Unlimited. 

But the author I’ve been reading for the past few week or so? She has completely blown me away and it’s safe to say that Laura Thalassa has taken over my life. I stumbled upon her book, Pestilence (#1) of The Four Horsemen Series on Kindle Unlimited and I borrowed it and I COULDN’T PUT IT DOWN. I was seriously hooked and honestly? I haven’t been hooked like that on a book in a very long time. I finished Pestilence and found out her other books are also on Kindle Unlimited.

So I borrowed her other series, The Fallen World series and again…I devoured all three books within three days. Again, I was completely blown away!  She has several other series and I want to start them but I know I have ARC’s coming up! But Laura Thalassa definitely has me obsessed and I desperately need the second book The Four Horsemen Series, War right meow! Below I’m sharing Pestilence’s blurb, buy links and my review along with Laura Thalassa’s information. 
pestilience
Blurb: They came to earth—Pestilence, War, Famine, Death—four horsemen riding their screaming steeds, racing to the corners of the world. Four horsemen with the power to destroy all of humanity. They came to earth, and they came to end us all. 

When Pestilence comes for Sara Burn’s town, one thing is certain: everyone she knows and loves is marked for death. Unless, of course, the angelic-looking horseman is stopped, which is exactly what Sara has in mind when she shoots the unholy beast off his steed. Too bad no one told her Pestilence can’t be killed. 

Now the horseman, very much alive and very pissed off, has taken her prisoner, and he’s eager to make her suffer. Only, the longer she’s with him, the more uncertain she is about his true feelings towards her … and hers towards him. 
And now, well, Sara might still be able to save the world, but in order to do so, she’ll have to sacrifice her heart in the process.

Buy Pestilence (#1) The Four Horsemen series:

I have several ARC’s coming up this week and the next so I don’t know how much free time I’ll have but I am definitely going to keep my eye on Kindle Unlimited because there have been some really great books on there! I’ve used Kindle Unlimited since I’ve owned a kindle but the Kindle Unlimited program has definitely improved in past years, especially during the past few months. $10 a month for ten free books? It’s definitely expanded my reading experience! Do you use Kindle Unlimited? Comment below!

Teaser: Knocked Up by Stacey Lynn

Knocked Up - Teaser 2.jpg
Blurb: First comes love. Then comes marriage. Then comes baby in a baby carriage. Just not necessarily in that order. . . .

Braxton: I should probably be dead or in jail right now. Instead, thanks to some tough love, I worked my ass off and now I own a string of tattoo parlors throughout the Pacific Northwest. And yet the one thing I’ve always wanted—a family—still seems out of reach. When my best friend gets married, I’m just hoping to blow off some steam with the super-hot maid of honor. But after Cara Thompson tracks me down to tell me she’s pregnant, she’s more surprised than I am when I tell her I’m all in.

Cara: For the first time in my life, I’m living for myself—not for my parents and their ridiculous expectations. I gave up on my MBA, dropped out of the Ivy League, and moved to Portland to pursue my dream of becoming an artist. And what’s the first thing I do? Get knocked up. For a tatted-up sex god, Braxton Henley seems way too eager to “be there for me.” Is this guy serious? Maybe. He sure is patient. Because he won’t back down until I admit what I know in my heart: that our one night stand might’ve led me to the one.

Excerpt: In the dark, during the fundraising video, she leaned into me, taking my hand. “What’s going on?”

“Nothing.”

“Caden.” My name was more than a statement. It was a comment on how well she knew the animal, and how well she loved it.

If eyes could listen, hers did, gazing at me in the darkness. I couldn’t lie to her for much longer.

The entire invite list was watching the video. The bar was empty. The hallway lights were dimmed. The kitchen staff moved constantly and quietly to set up the buffet.

I laced my fingers in hers. She had a gold band we’d gotten out of expediency. No big sparkling rock. No sign I’d ever courted her properly before marrying her.

My father always said a man didn’t skip steps if he wanted to do something once.

I slid my cheek to hers and whispered in her ear, “I want to destroy you.”

Her hand tightened in mine so tightly I could feel our bones. Her glands must have fired, because the apples and the perfume melded and became something so uniquely her my balls ached—but not for simple release. For something more. An agreement of ownership.

Waiting wasn’t an option.

Pulling her by the hand, I headed for the hallway.

“Caden,” she said when we were away from the event, “slow down.”

I didn’t. I couldn’t. I pulled her down the carpeted steps to the lower level, stepping over a velvet rope at the bottom. The lights were out in the hall. Three doors led to three empty event rooms.

“What’s with you lately?” she asked.

“Are you saying no?”

“I’m asking a question.”

I backed into one of the rooms and pulled her in. It was dark but for light coming from under the doorways on each side. I walked in deeper, eyes adjusting quickly enough to avoid the tables and stacks of chairs on wheeled dollies.

“So am I.” I faced her. “Are you saying no?”

“What are you hoping I’ll say yes to?”

“I’m going to pull that dress up until I can get to these hard nipples.” I pinched them through the dress and she gasped. “Then I’ll bend you over one of these tables and fuck you so hard walking’s going to hurt. Are you saying no?”

“I’m not. But I want to know what’s going on with you.”

“Pull your dress up before I shred it.”

About the Author:
 
CD Reiss is a New York Times bestseller. She still has to chop wood and carry water, which was buried in the fine print. Her lawyer is working it out with God but in the meantime, if you call and she doesn’t pick up she’s at the well hauling buckets.

Born in New York City, she moved to Hollywood, California to get her master’s degree in screenwriting from USC. In case you want to know, that went nowhere but it did give her a big enough ego to write novels. She’s frequently referred to as the Shakespeare of Smut which is flattering but hasn’t ever gotten her out of chopping that cord of wood.

If you meet her in person, you should call her Christine.

Cover Reveal: The Right Stud by Ilsa Madden-Mills and Tia Louise

The Right Stud by Ilsa Madden-Mills and Tia Louise out June 4th 2018!
TheRightStud-ebook.jpg
Blurb: 
Wall Street Journal bestselling author Ilsa Madden-Mills and USA Today bestselling author Tia Louise are back with an all-new romantic comedy filled with Southern sass and steamy scenes that will have you laughing out loud and fanning yourself. Pour the sweet tea and get ready…

“The best way to get over your sh**ty ex-fiancé is to get under a shiny new stud…”

As soon as Mr. Tall, Blond, and Handsome walks into that bar, I know he’s the hook-up I need to get over stupid Cheater Kyle. A few stolen kisses in a dark hallway, and I’m pretty sure we’re headed for a home run—until he disappears without a trace. Whatever. Men are all snakes in the grass, and I don’t need a new one anyway.

I resolve to forget about his perfect lips (and chest of steel) and instead focus on turning my Granny’s old beach house into a profitable B&B. What I don’t expect is for him to show up the next day in my kitchen! You see, my sexy mystery man is none other than Jax Roland, the drop-dead gorgeous home improvement star of The Right Stud, and he’s got an offer I can’t refuse.

With a suitcase in one hand and a hammer in the other, he wants to move in and renovate my old house while he films his new show.But my roommate has secrets, and they threaten to rip our blossoming friendship—and possible love—apart. When push comes to shove, is Jax really The Right Stud or is he just another nail in the coffin of love?32565050_2038309563096809_6991164356440358912_n (2).pngAdd to Goodreads: http://smarturl.it/TRSgr
