First base: kissing.
Second base: above the waist.
Third base: below the waist.
Home run: no explanation needed.

Every baseball player knows to keep their eye on the ball and swing for the fences. Each base counts, but a home run is the goal. No one wants to strike out. This is true both on and off the field.

Ellie Teller had been my best friend since we were born, and we had a plan—get out of the tiny Alabama town we’d grown up in and go to college…together. But even life’s best-laid plans could throw a powerful curveball. Rather than attend classes, I was now the starting pitcher for a Major League team.

While my game-day stats were impressive, my record with women was less desirable. I was the professional baseball player who hadn’t been able to make it past third base since the one and only night I’d played hardball with my best friend.

But when Third Base Teaser Maturing.jpghe bottom of the ninth came to a close on my career, I had to decide if our friendship was worth more than a few extra innings.

Blog Tour & Review: Filthy Player by Stacey Lynn

FlithyPlayer-AN

The Cover: I like this cover, I think it would be even better if it showed the model’s face but I really like the stance and the vibe it gives off to the viewer. B+

Basics: Filthy Player was released on October 9th 2017 and is 261 pages long. Genre wise Filthy Player belongs to sports, sports romance, contemporary romance. 

Description:  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.

FilthyPlayer-Teaser1

Overall thoughts: I was really happy and a bit shocked at how much I enjoyed Filthy Player! I am not a big sports (especially football) person so I didn’t know what to expect but I was pleasantly surprised. Stacey Lynn is seriously one of the best authors to mix real life issues with contemporary romance. I read so many romance books and although I enjoy and love them…a lot of what happens in those books doesn’t happen in real life. That is okay because that’s the whole point of reading, to forget real life and dream for a bit, but it’s also nice to read something and know that what’s going on in the book is real life.

Paige is a great leading lady, she’s driven, loyal and hardworking woman who just wants to make ends meet and take care of her Dad. She’s given up a lot for her Dad but she doesn’t mind taking care of him and I really just adored her for being so protective over her dad. Beau is perfection, he is literally every woman’s dreamboat in one way or another. Some people like cocky, silly men while others like the rich, athletically fit men and there are some readers who just want to read about a character that is caring and understanding. Well…Beaux is a combination of those three traits. 

Paige and Beaux have great chemistry and I really enjoyed reading about them. Paige had so many responsibility and it was hard for her to really let herself have fun or settle down. Beaux wanted that for her and I just really liked the book’s flow of their relationship and how he really tried to make things work between them. 

Filthy Player has seriously been one of my favorite reads for the end of 2017 and I’m excited to read the rest of the Rough Riders series! 

Couple Chemistry Rating: 5/5 Shells
5 shells
Favorite Quotes: “I’d have my hands full with this woman. Good thing I had big hands.” -Beau
“You’re crazy! And I fucking love you! “Fucking love me? Or love fucking me?” “Yes.” “I love you too. Forever.” -Paige & Beau.

Excerpt: “You know, you’re not anything like I really imagined you were.”

“Is that a compliment?”

“I suppose it might be.” Her lips twisted like she didn’t want to admit it. I couldn’t stop from chuckling. Why did this woman dislike me? Instead of it turning me off, I was curious.

“Okay, then, how about this. You take care of my truck, I’ll do your favor, and then tonight, you let me take you out for dinner.”

“You don’t even know what the favor is.”

“Doesn’t matter. I’ll still do it, and I still want you across the table from me so I can keep proving how much of a non-asshole I am.”

“You’re sort of pushy, you know that?”

“I prefer ‘determined’ when I see something I want.” I flicked my hand out. “What’s the favor?”

“She glanced toward the door to the garage and sighed again. “My dad’s a fan—”

“Just your dad?” I teased.

She huffed, lips pressed into a pout and continued, ignoring me. “It’s just, I was wondering, it doesn’t have to be much, nothing big at all…but could you autograph—”

“Done.” We had boatloads of crap in the marketing department I could grab. I’d take care of it and blow her mind with my generosity. And it wasn’t just because I tried to do everything I could for fans, but because she was pretty when she blushed.

Even prettier as her eyes went soft when she mentioned her dad. 

Spectacular as she gritted out her favor like asking for something from someone was worse than getting teeth pulled without Novocain.

“Yeah?” she asked. “That’d be really great. But dinner, I don’t know.”

The pretty little liar. Her blush told me she wanted it. “Tonight, whenever. You make the call, and it’s not payback for the favor or you fixing my truck. I just want to share a meal with you.”

“Why? Because you want in my pants?”

Her tone was snippy and her shoulders tightened. She’d handed me a loaded gun and hell if I was going to shoot myself with it.

I closed the five feet of space between us, making her step backward until she was almost plastered to my truck. 

“I do want in your pants, Paige. Any American male who watches you for longer than two seconds probably wants the same. And I’ll take my time getting there if I have to, so I’m not going to be a dick and lie, and I’m not being a dick by being honest. I’m just honest. But dinner is because you’re pretty, and for some reason I can’t explain, I want to know why you look so damn exhausted, why you just asking me for help made you look like you want to puke, and why you did it anyway. So basically, I just want to talk to you. Get to know you. I’m interested and I’m not going to hide that either. It’s not my style.”

“Wow.” Her cheeks had turned pink while I was talking and by the time I was done, her lips were parted. “That’s a lot to discuss at dinner.”

“Then we’ll tack on drinks and dessert at the end.”

BourbonSinsAmazon.jpg
On the streets of New Orleans, sins are committed every night.

My name is Jett Colby and I save tarnished souls. 
In the downtown, under the glittery lights of Bourbon Street, I found her in cheap lingerie, flaunting her body for callous men and money. 
From the lace of her cheap lingerie, to her garter belt, I knew she had to be saved.
She had to be mine.
Broke and destitute with no way of out, she had no choice but to come to me and into my club. She had no other choice but to become a Jett Girl. 
But see, that’s the thing about this city; you might think that under the dazzling lights and illusion of salvation, she’s the one that needed saving.
When the glitter fades and the dirt is washed away, the one worth saving just might be me.*Formerly known as Becoming a Jett Girl. Add it to your TBR!

BourbonDeceitAmazon.jpg
The walls of my club hold many secrets. Depravity. Sin. Justice.
Come in; debauchery can be yours for the cost of a lap dance and a night of pleasure.  And I own every last part of it.
But she’s my weakness, and thankfully she followed me through the insolvent streets of New Orleans, giving me her loyalty and her heart.

My desire for her dominates my every thought, but my broken past could destroy us. There are people trying to bring me down.
Two malicious men stand in the way of what I want: to own it all.
It’s either Lot 17 or Goldie, my Jett Girl.
I have to make a choice and for once, it won’t be easy.
*Formerly known as Being a Jett Girl. Add it to your TBR!

BourbonKingdomAmazon (1).jpg
Under the neon lights of Bourbon, money is everything.
Justice, faith, and power. They’re the key to my empire and she holds them all in the palm of her hand. Falling for her was a mistake; she stole my heart and consumed me. I was addicted, and she left me weak and vulnerable to my enemies.
They’re everywhere.  Now she’s gone, turning to my enemy’s business partner; the man I’ve hated my entire life. She said she’s protecting me. She said it won’t be forever.
But how can I believe her?  Lies, deceit and deception. They’re the sins driving us apart.
In a city that never sleeps—in a place where scandal hides behind every dark corner, my Jett girl might never be mine again.

*Formerly known as Forever a Jett Girl. Add it to your TBR! 

Every choice you make in life comes with a consequence.
I was once on top, I was the professional boxer to be afraid of. I had everything I could possibly hope for. I was happy, satisfied, content . . . until one night. 
One off day.  One wrong reaction.
I killed a man. The sound, the blood, the stagnant air, it’s forever imprinted in my mind and now dictates the way I live my life.

Desolate with nothing but my penance to pay, I didn’t expect to have my world flipped upside down when Lyla seductively strutted into my life. 
I want her. I need her. I crave her.  But I don’t deserve her.
People like to celebrate the day they were born, I like to celebrate the day my soul died. This is my story of repentance.

*Formerly known as Repentance. Add it to your TBR!

MeghanQuinn
About the Author:
 Born in New York and raised in Southern California, Meghan has grown into a sassy, peanut butter eating, blonde haired swearing, animal hoarding lady. She is known to bust out and dance if “It’s Raining Men” starts beating through the air and heaven forbid you get a margarita in her, protect your legs because they may be humped.

Once she started commuting for an hour and twenty minutes every day to work for three years, she began to have conversations play in her head, real life, deep male voices and dainty lady coos kind of conversations. Perturbed and confused, she decided to either see a therapist about the hot and steamy voices running through her head or start writing them down. She decided to go with the cheaper option and started writing… enter her first novel, Caught Looking.

Now you can find the spicy, most definitely on the border of lunacy, kind of crazy lady residing in Colorado with the love of her life and her five, furry four legged children, hiking a trail or hiding behind shelves at grocery stores, wondering what kind of lube the nervous stranger will bring home to his wife. Oh and she loves a good boob squeeze!

Release Blitz & Review: Racer by Katy Evans

Racer-Promo1

The Cover: I am in love with this cover. If you’ve read my reviews before you know how much book covers mean to me. Book covers are sometimes what gets people to buy books when a cover doesn’t relate to the characters or story it drives me up the wall. That isn’t the case for this book, Racer’s cover is perfection and matches him 100% A+

Basics: Racer was released on September 28th 2017 and is 358 pages long. Racer is a standalone but does related to Katy Evans’ series The Real series. Genre wise Racer belongs to standalone and contemporary romance. 

September 20th teaser

Description: A bad boy with something to prove.
A woman with a mission.
The race of their lives.
The love of a lifetime.

I don’t think his parents expected him to live up to his name—Racer Tate—but once he felt the adrenaline rush behind the wheel, he was addicted.

He’s the fastest, fiercest driver around.
Scouting new talent brings me to his doorstep… but his smile sends me to my knees.

The sexy, mysterious Racer Tate is not the kind of man a girl like me falls for. He’s secretive, reckless, elusive. But his proximity pushes me beyond reason, and his kiss….

This is our last chance to win, and he is our only hope. I’m supposed to watch him—make sure he doesn’t get into trouble. But it’s an impossible task. And now the one in heart wrenching, toe-curling, soul-crushing trouble is me. Because when your heart belongs to someone, their truths become your own, and their secrets become your salvation…or your curse. 

He says he wants me. He says I’m the One. But he also thinks he’ll break my heart, one piece at a time until it’s gone.

Racer.jpg

Overall thoughts: I loved this book. No seriously Racer is in the running for my favorite book of the year, it was THAT good. Real by Katy Evans was my first book of hers and I immediately fell in love with Remy and Real’s wonderful story. Honestly I love all of Katy Evans’ books with all my heart and soul, but Real and Racer will always hold a special place in my heart. My entire life I have struggled with depression and anxiety and three years ago I was diagnosed with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. 

For a long time I didn’t think anyone would ever love me because of my mental illnesses and it’s taken me a long time but I am able to function and fight against my darkness. But reading a book with a character that is bipolar finding love/is afraid no one will return their love because they are mentally ill just spoke to me so much. I feel so close to Remy and Racer because we share the same thoughts and every day is a struggle for us. But we’re fighters and even though they are just fictional characters, they mean the world to me. 

Racer is an amazing character, I didn’t think anyone could come close to Remy (his father) but leave it to his son to edge him out of winning the race. Racer is a standalone but relates to The Real series. Racer is without a doubt Remy’s son but honestly Racer is his own character too. He’s headstrong, confident, caring, determined and he’s a man with something to prove. Lana is a woman with something to prove too and what I find out absolutely enchanting with Racer and Lana’s relationship is the fact they both were trying to find their way in the world and it took them coming together to figure things out. 

Their chemistry is insane, Katy Evans has written some amazing, steamy scenes between her characters before but holy cow…Lana and Racer deserve their own award. I loved Racer so much; the story, the characters…everything about this book was magical from start to end and may be a little cheesy but Racer really does give you the race of a lifetime with this wonderful book. I am dubbing Racer my most recommended book of the year!

Couple Chemistry Rating: 5/5 Shells
5 shells

Favorite Quotes: “You going because you want to race, or you want the girl?” “Both. I’m racing; and I want the girl.” -Remy and Racer

“I’m sort of your boss, Racer. You can’t play games with me.” “I’m going to be your man. You better not play games with me.” -Lana and Racer

“Patience I hear my father say. Rome wasn’t built in a day…and nobody said it was easy to fall in love with a Tate.” -Racer

“But Lana and me…what we have. This love is real.” -Racer

Release Blitz & Review: Scandalous by LJ Shen

LJSScandalousBookCover6x9_HIGH
The Cover: I like the vibe of the cover and the cover of the title with seahorse but I actually am not a fan of the cover model. He wasn’t what I envisioned when I imagined Trent but that’s just my personal opinion. Either way the cover is still great and gets a B+ from me. 

Basics: Scandalous was released on September 21st 2017, book four of the Sinners of Saint series and is 315 pages long. Genre wise Scandalous belongs to standalone and contemporary romance. 

Description:  They call him The Mute for a reason.
Hard, cold and calculated, he rarely speaks.
When he does, it’s with disdain. When he does, his words aren’t meant for me.

When he does, my stomach flips and my world tilts on its axis.
He is thirty-three. I am eighteen.
He’s a single dad and my father’s business partner.
I’m just a kid to him and his enemy’s daughter.
He’s emotionally unavailable. And I am…feeling. Feeling things I shouldn’t feel for him.
Trent Rexroth is going to break my heart. The writing isn’t just on the wall, it’s inked on my soul.
And yet, I can’t stay away.
A scandal is the last thing my family needs. But a scandal is what we’re going to give them. And oh, what a beautiful chaos it will be.

Scandalous.jpg

Overall thoughts: To be honest with you, I had a REALLY hard time getting into this series. Even reading several of these books as standalones I just couldn’t get into them! My first book was Vicious and honestly I hated it! I didn’t like the main guy at all and just felt really disgusted and disappointed throughout the entire book. However I am not a quitter when it comes to books people! So I gave this series another try and read Dean’s book, Ruckus Book Three of Sinners of Saint. I’m so glad I did because it made me want to pick up Scandalous and I’m so thankful I gave this series another chance.

 I adored Scandalous! It was such a great read and I loved the story! Edie and Trent are one of my favorite couples of the year and I seriously have a small obsession with them. There is something well (pardon the pun) scandalous about a younger woman being with an older man, add a kid to that mix and well things always seem to get interesting. There were lots of moments where I had to stop reading because my heart wouldn’t stop going crazy over these two! It’s just one of the things where you are reading something and you know, YOU JUST KNOW something either wonderful amazing or excruciating embarrassing is going to happen to the characters and that’s how I felt when reading Scandalous. But in a very good way!  I really loved this book and Edie and Trent are in the running for the hottest chemistry of the year.

About the Author: L.J. Shen is an International #1 best-selling author of Contemporary Romance and New Adult novels. She lives in Northern California with her husband, young son and chubby cat.

Before she’d settled down, L.J. (who thinks referring to herself in the third person is really silly, by the way) traveled the world, and collected friends from all across the globe. Friends who’d be happy to report that she is a rubbish companion, always forgets peoples’ birthdays and never sends Christmas cards.

She enjoys the simple things in life, like spending time with her family and friends, reading, HBO, Netflix and internet-stalking Stephen James. She reads between three to five books a week and firmly believes Crocs shoes and mullets should be outlawed.

Release Blitz & Review: Breaching the Contract by Chantal Fernando

br 2.jpg

The Cover: I think this cover is perfect for the story and setting of the book. It’s sassy but there’s obvious sexual tension which just makes the cover look alive. I love it! A+

Basics: Breaching the Contract was released on September 18th 2017, published by Pocket and is 130 pages long. Genre wise Breaching the Contract is  romance, contemporary romance and novella.

Description: New York Times bestselling author Chantal Fernando returns with a brand new series about a brigade of lawyers who, despite being bad boys at heart, always end up just on the right side of the law.

Katerina Dawson knows exactly what she wants from life. And as the new associate at the top law firm in the city, she’s ready to live out her dreams of becoming a criminal lawyer. But going on coffee runs and babysitting kids during the day was definitely not what she had in mind. She knows that anyone else would kill to be in her shoes, but she has to draw the line somewhere. That’s easier said than done, though, when Kat has to confront her handsome boss…

Tristan Channing and Jaxon Bentley run a successful law firm together and the two partners couldn’t be busier right now. When Jaxon suddenly takes a leave of absence, Tristan begrudgingly assumes responsibility of the new associate, the hotnew associate, who has curves for days. Needing to keep his distance from her, Tristan sends Kat on needless errands and has her doing work even an intern wouldn’t touch, like picking up his kids. But his plan backfires when he sees his children grow attached to Kat and sees her getting comfortable in his home. It triggers something deep within him, and it feels right to have her there. Will Tristan be able to keep his work and personal lives separate, or will he find that his heart holds the final verdict?

Overall thoughts: Breaching the Contract is a sweet story about two people who start out not liking one another but end up falling head over heels in love. Honestly it’s one of my favorite romance troupes. But this story is a little different because Tristan is a single dad which is something that is becoming quite popular in the romance book world. But I like it because it’s different and honestly brings something new to a couple’s story I think.

Kat is a bad ass heroine! She’s smart, independent and honestly I adore her. Anyone who is a twenty something or someone who isn’t used to child could relate to her. I really enjoyed Breaching The Contract however I wish it was a longer story because I really loved Tristan and Katerina.
