New Cover Reveal: Hotter than Ever (Out of Uniform) by Elle Kennedy

Available February 26, 2018




A sexy standalone novel from New York Times and international bestselling author Elle Kennedy!

Three is most definitely not a crowd…

Claire McKinley has just experienced every bride’s nightmare: the groom is a no-show, and now she must face five hundred guests alone. Furious and humiliated, she seeks help from the most unlikely candidate—her almost-brother-in-law, who promptly whisks her away to his apartment in San Diego, where she can recover her pride in peace and quiet.

Dylan Wade is no fan of Claire’s, but he can’t ignore the jilted bride in her time of need. Bringing her home seems like a good idea—until he remembers his new roommate. Dylan’s relationship with Aidan Rhodes is…complicated. And with Claire thrown into the mix, life becomes even more…complicated.

Claire is blindsided by her attraction not only to Dylan, but also to Aidan, a man she’s just met. Soon they’re caught up in an all-consuming sexual storm they can’t fight even if they wanted to. But when their hearts get involved, Claire wonders if it can last, or if she’s just setting herself up for more heartache.

Warning: This book is very dirty. Ménage a trois and man-on-man dirty. Graphic language and explicit sex dirty. Basically? Dirty. You’ve been warned.

Cover Reveal:The Pecker Briefs by Sawyer Bennett: Ford and Viveka's Story (The Legal Affairs Series, Book #7)

The Pecker Briefs: Ford and Viveka's Story
(The Legal Affairs Series, Book #7)

Sawyer Bennett Release Date: April 17, 2018

 


Synopsis:

I never thought a pecker would get me in so much trouble.


I mean, sure… if you’re talking about a certain anatomical feature of mine that the ladies just love. 
Given my bachelor status and appreciation for all things curvy and feminine, I could absolutely see that. But a different pecker is making my life much harder than it needs to be.


My name is Ford Daniels, partner at the law firm of Knight & Payne, and my latest case has me wading through the finer points of peckers—woodpeckers that is. Specifically, the red-cockaded woodpecker. I swear, I can’t make this stuff up but that’s what the sexy-as-hell blonde chained to a tree told me this morning.


Her name is Viveka Jones and she is so much more than a pretty face. She’s got wit, charm, and razor-sharp smarts. Turns out my client is looking to bulldoze the red-cockaded woodpecker’s natural habitat in favor of a multimillion-dollar subdivision and the sexy attorney with legs for days (and days), just happens to be counsel for an animal rights group looking to put a halt to construction.


My client’s pissed, but all I can think about is getting Viveka across the table from me. And then on the table underneath me. Perhaps up against the wall. And then—


Well, let’s just say when it’s all said and done, I’m hoping the red-cockaded woodpecker isn’t the only pecker that gets some attention from Miss Viveka Jones.

Cover Reveal: Second Chance Charmer by Brighton Walsh

SBPRBANNER-SecondChanceCharmer-CR 
 Second Chance Charmer
by Brighton Walsh
 Publication Date: March 19th, 2018 
 Genre: Contemporary Romance


Second-chance-charmer-customdesign-JayAheer2018--eBook-Cover.jpg
Willow Haven’s content. Okay, that’s a lie, but she has tried her damndest. Trouble is, it never sticks. Second oldest in a family her town was named after, she’s always felt the pressure. From the townspeople, from her sisters, but most of all from her daddy—the original Good Old Boy and Havenbrook’s reigning mayor. The only time she didn’t feel that stress had been those blissful months spent in the arms of the resident bad boy. The same one who broke her heart beyond repair when he left without a word.

Life hasn’t come easy for Finn Thomas. He’s had to claw and fight for everything he’s ever had—and truth be told, it hasn’t been much. He spent the first eighteen years of his life living so far from the wrong side of the tracks, he couldn’t even see them through his trailer window. The only thing that ever came easy for him and made his sorry ass happy was the one girl he loved with all his heart. And the one thing he had no choice but to leave behind.

When an opportunity arises to return to his tiny, southern hometown and open the first bar in a formerly dry county, he jumps at the chance. That won’t win him points with the mayor, who’s hell bent on making Finn’s life a nightmare for sullying his namesake. Too bad for Mayor Haven, Finn’s got his sights set on more than just the town, and this time he won’t be scared off quite so easily.

Review: Two from Tamsen Parker -- On the Edge of Scandal & Fire On The Ice


Bronwyn Perry is the star of the US women’s hockey team, and she and her boyfriend Brody Hill have been hockey royalty since they’ve been in high school. Brody unexpectedly fails to make the men’s team but still comes to Denver to support his girl at the Snow and Ice Games. Or so Bronwyn thinks.

Ash Levenson is the coach of the women’s SIG hockey team. His primary responsibility is to keep his team happy, healthy, and primed to win. Though he’s close in age to his players, he’s been doing this for a while and mostly, it’s easy to keep his eyes on the puck. He’s always been able to discard any crush he might have on any of the women he’s coached…until Bronwyn.

When Bronwyn and Brody’s romance comes to a very public and very ugly end, Ash has to get his star player’s head back in the game and ready to dominate on the rink. Which may mean spending a little time off the ice…




What I thought about On The Edge of Scandal

Hockey player Bronwyn is dedicated to her sport and when her long time boyfriend Brody encourages her to take out an oppenent, she listens to her against her better judgement.  This initiates a series of events that leads to a break-up right before the start of the games.

Coach Ash has tried to hide his feelings for Bronwyn but when she needs his support, he's there to help.  And even though he tries, his true feelings for Bronwyn come out and things take off from there.  But coach-player romances are also potentially scandalous, and Ash and Bronwyn  deal with the press, while sorting out how they really feel. 

I liked this story. It was believable and a very sweet romantic story between two athletes.

Welcome to the Snow and Ice Games where competition is not the only thing that is heating up! The fourth book in bestselling Tamsen Parker's romance series continues with two female skaters from opposite sides of the rink.

Blaze Bellamy is the bad girl of the short track speed skating world. Looking like a roller derby bruiser when she’s not in her Team USA uniform, she’s an unlikely American heroine. She’s got a punk attitude to match her provocative dress and her dyed hair, and she’s determined to get onto the front pages of the papers regardless of how she has to do it.

Maisy Harper is the workhorse of the Canadian women’s figure skating team. Serious, modest, and above all, polite, Maisy would prefer to win her victory on the ice rather than in the press, and is exasperated by Blaze’s antics. When she’s not lusting after her anyway. After they both failed to make the medal podium at the last Snow and Ice Games, they drowned themselves in gin—and each other.

Despite their hookup being drunken, they both harbor fond memories of their night together and are keen for a repeat. But they’ve got different ways of going about getting what they want, and Blaze’s willingness to go to any lengths for the spotlight could ruin any chance she has with Maisy.




What I thought about Fire on The Ice

In this fourth book in Snow and Ice Games series from Tamsen Parker, short track skater Blaze and figure skater Maisy rekindle their passionate encounter from the last SiG competition.  Maisy only has one condition -- she doesn't like to share and so she asks Blaze to be monogomous while they are together. 

The first half of the book is mostly sex, and it did make it hard to feel a connection with these characters.  I did love the sexual freedom and openness to this story, but if f/f sexual relationships aren't your thing in romance, this probably isn't the book for you.

I did like this book much better in the second half when the characters took it out of the dorm room and there was more dialogue.  

Overall, I loved the sexual expression in Fire on The Ice although it was quite a generous helping, but needed a little more story to believe this couple.
