Book Description:

Years ago, I was burned by a woman.

I forgave, but I haven’t forgotten, and it’s a road I’ll never go down again. 

My career has become my life instead. I’m Max Graham, the biggest music agent in the business. Women love me, but I don’t do love anymore. I’ve found another way to meet my needs.

Eve Kennedy—stylist to the stars and total bombshell. By far, she’s the most daring woman I’ve ever had in my bed with a sexual appetite as ferocious as mine. 

We might just have the hottest sex life in Miami and LA.

We don’t date anyone else—although, sometimes, we invite someone for a night. We travel the world, and I lavish her with gifts. But she knows my career comes first.

And the best part? For the past two years, she’s been happy with our arrangement.

Or so I thought. 

I’ve survived heartbreak once before, but this one could be the end of me.

***ARC received for an honest review***

“I love you more.”

OMG, I have been in love with this author for a long, long time, but Marni Mann brought out her ‘A’ Game with Contracted and knocked it into the stratosphere. This author has written so many fantastic books that often fly under the radar, but this is one of those books that needs to be read. This is by far my favourite book in this connected series and I am even going as far to say as my favourite contemporary romance by this author, it is seriously that good. Deliciously hot, insanely sexy and incredibly emotional, this book had it all and hits your emotions, heart and soul with deadly accuracy. I had tears, a lot of tears, but I had tears of laughter too, I swooned hard, I loved harder and I couldn’t put this book down. This is a book I could read time and time again, one of those love stories that will stay with you for a long, long time, at least it will for me.

“And they are things you can give her, you’re just too stubborn and scared and extremely scarred.”

As I said above, this book is insanely hot, your kindle will definitely need freezer time with this baby. But that is something that Marni Mann always does incredibly well, she is one of the queens of sex. For a seemingly shy and timid author, I don’t know where this side comes from, but I am not complaining. Marni Mann nailed the character connection in this book and I mean seriously nailed it. I lived and breathed this story with these characters, I felt it all, I lived it all and when they broke, I broke too. I was a mess when the course of true love didn’t run smooth, but that is the nature of the beast and if it was meant to be, it will. Of course, the author pieces your shattered heart back together with heartfelt scenes, a heap more of that delicious emotion and a lot of soul searching and swoon worthy moments. These are two characters that were incredibly relatable, honest and lovable and this reader certainly got sucked right in.

“He was worried he would lose me, but he’d already lost me. And in this bed, I’d given him a chance to get me back.
He hadn’t taken it.”

Max and Eve have been lovers with benefits for a long time. They are both exclusive and sometimes a third may be introduced to spice up their incredibly hot sex life, but they are monogamous. Both are incredibly busy, they live states apart, but when these two get together, the pages just incinerate. These two are fucking HOT!! Max has been burned and burned bad and so he threw himself into his work and that has now become his sole focus in life. Max works incredibly long hours, travels a lot, but the time he looks forward to the most is his time with Eve. Not a second is wasted.

“No you didn’t…Because when I compare what you gave to Kristin to what you gave to Eve, Eve got the short end of that stick…And I mean very short, barely even a twig.”

Eve is a personal stylist to the stars, her work keeps her insanely busy and while she treasures her time with Max, it is getting to that point where Eve is finally ready for more. With her best friend getting married, scenarios are running rife throughout her mind and while she knows that she is ready, she knows that Max isn’t. Max, his hang-ups and his job are her biggest hurdle, but can she turn Max around?

“This is why we work so well together, Eve, because neither of us would ever want something like that.”

Damn, this book damn near killed me. I mean, I know that Marni Mann writes well, but she killed me with this one. The angst was perfection, not over the top, but when it comes, it decimates you. No angst for angst sake, this book just flowed effortlessly, and each scene meticulously planned to give the reader the perfect reading experience. I could wax lyrical about this story for a long time, but I’m keeping my lips sealed, because you need to read this book as the author intended. There was one thing I never saw coming and Marni Mann certainly knocked me on my ass with that one, I’m normally good with my predictions, but that one was a fine doozy, expertly executed.

“There was so much need in her voice.
So much sadness in each sob.
One word would take it all away.
But I couldn’t fucking say it.”

Contracted is the third book in this series but can be read as a standalone, however common characters are prevalent throughout the three. Both Signed and Endorsed were fantastic reads too, so if you want to delve into the world of management with sports, music and acting stars then this is definitely the series for you. I work in this area, so this has been like coming home for me, think of it as an insanely hot, Jerry Maguire’esque series. I cannot wait to see what comes next from this author and with a few new characters introduced in this book I am definitely itching for more. For me, this was an amazing read and I cannot recommend it highly enough.

Release Day Review ~ Second Chance (Chances Book #2) by BJ Harvey

Book Description:

In this hot new angsty romance from USA Today bestselling author BJ Harvey, the once-burned-forever-commitment-shy best friend from One Shot faces her own moral dilemma of the heart

When life gives me lemons, I always make lemonade.

Living every day like it could be my last, I'm content with the choices I've made and do so unapologetically. With a relationship that makes me happy, and a job that I love, life is good.

But when the man I've just agreed to marry, has his estranged wife and four-year-old daughter turn up on his doorstep, I'm not the only one reevaluating things. 

He didn’t plan for that—and I didn’t plan for my childhood sweetheart to return, wanting me back. 

Sometimes lemons can be sour, sometimes they can be sweet, and sometimes, all it takes is a second chance to make things right again. 

You just need to get that second chance in the first place.

***ARC received for an honest review***

“If we’re going inside, it’s to do one thing and one thing only. There’ll be no talking, no dating, and definitely no sleeping.”

Being someone that has read all of BJ Harvey’s books (and she has written a lot) I was itching to read this one. The more I read the more I loved, the more I loved, the more excited I got and that excitement never waned throughout and by the end I just sat back and thought to myself ‘damn, BJ Harvey, you nailed it.’ So…drum roll please…it is for the first time ever that I have handed this author a five-star rating, she has been so damn close, so many times, but this time she earned every single one of them and I couldn’t be happier. This book had EVERYTHING for me. The angst was addictive, the chemistry was seriously OFF THE CHARTS, the sex…well INFERNO and damn, she made the name Bruno sexy as fuck.

“I’ve been waiting for you to chase me, Gabs. What we shared meant something then and it’ll still mean something the day you finally give in to me.”

We were first introduced to Bruno and Gaby in One Shot, the first book in this series, but you can read this book as a standalone. However, if you have not read One Shot and are planning too, then I suggest you read it first as there are spoilers for One Shot in Second Chance.

Honestly, I could wax lyrical about this book, I loved it THAT much. The characters were perfectly flawed, the writing was exceptional, the plot addictive from start to finish and the execution was perfect. The prologue…OMG, that freakin prologue was KILLER and sets the scene perfectly, but is all as it seems?

“I know you, Gaby. I’ve watched you five nights a week for the past six months. I know you, even if I haven’t let you know me.”

Both Gaby and Bruno have been burned in the past, all in the name of love, and both have been left with their emotional scars. Both closed off, with walls like a fortress, their hearts are definitely impenetrable, but neither betted on falling for the other.

Gaby was one of my favourite heroines, she was hilarious, feisty and head-strong, yet underneath her sass and snark was a woman who had been hurt and hurt badly. Jaded is an understatement and her belief in herself had been incredibly dented. Her demeanour was her armour, when underneath was a woman still hurting, but there was a heart there wanting nothing more than to be loved, she just didn’t want to admit it.

“Of the two small glimpses of a different side to him he’s given me, I’m wondering if they were just snapshots with a limited lifespan rather than a sneak peek of what I was missing out on.”

Bruno, OMG, Bruno will have many a panty melting. Our quiet, intimidating bouncer who is the biggest enigma of them all had the patience of a saint. Bruno played the long game and played it incredibly well. The title says it all really, this was a second chance for both of them, at life and love and he wasn’t going to let Gaby get away.

“I’m going to kiss you, Gabs, and I need to know you get me when I say it’s going to mean something this time. It’s not gonna just be the touching of lips or just a physical act. It’s gonna be more than either of us have ever had before. So if you’re not ready for what kissing me again will mean, you’ve gotta say something now because in a few seconds, I’ll make the decision for both of us. Then I’ll probably make a few more decisions both of us will like a hell of a lot.”

This book will have you on the edge of your seat, the angst was so well played, perfectly timed and flowed naturally. No angst for angst sake. This felt like a real account of two people that saw the world in black in white…until they met, and then it all turned to murky masses of grey. BJ Harvey expertly brings them back to a life of technicolour even if the road to it was fraught along the way. But no two people ever deserved happiness like them and it was a killer to read waiting to find out if they found it. This is my favourite book by this author, everything just clicked, it worked and it all came together effortlessly. This will be a book I read time and time again and I cannot wait for the third book in this series, BJ Harvey queued it up brilliantly.

Review ~ The Upside of Falling (Blue Line Duet #1) by Meghan Quinn

Book Description:

Gripping, heart-stopping, and an incredibly epic journey with a twist you'll never see coming. Best selling author, Meghan Quinn, brings you a modern take on an old fashion romance that will leave you breathless and wanting more. 

Tucked away at the base of the Rocky Mountains lived a little boy with one singular dream: leave this broken and battered home and become someone.

Be somebody’s hero.

That boy was me—Colby Brooks. Except I’m not that same little boy anymore.
My dreams might still be the same, but my reality isn’t.

I’m smarter. Stronger. A man.

And I learned a long damn time ago, the only way to achieve my dreams was to avoid distractions—at any cost.

Focus. Resolve. Determination. 

But all it took was one single night. One night and my entire life…changed.

One night had me colliding head first with the biggest distraction of my life; Rory Oaks.

Smart. Charming. Beautiful.

Rory changed everything.

Quickly, my one-track mind started to bend.

Each kiss faded decade-long dreams.

And with one single incident, I fly off course.

“Careers fade, but love lasts forever.”

Meghan Quinn is one of those authors that no matter what genre she writes, she captivates me from first to last page and The Upside of Falling was no different. I love her serious side, those contemporary romances that rip the heart right out of you all the while piecing you back together in carefully orchestrated paragraphs. While this is a duet, and if like me you are an emotional sap, then you won’t get your final piece of heart restored until book 2, The Downside of Love, but Meghan Quinn leaves this book in an apt place and having already read the second book, can see why she left it where she did.

“There is so much to be written about our love story, and to hell if I’m going to let you believe otherwise.”

This is reminiscent of Top Gun as Meghan Quinn keeps us glued to the pages with Air Force Flight School, I was just waiting for Maverick and Goose to grace the pages. Instead we have Cody and Stryder, two best friends that have been there for each other through thick and thin, both characters are extremely lovable, exceptionally flawed (which I loved) and their bond was priceless. However, enough about the men in hot flight suits that grace the pages.

“You’re the only girl who’s ever made my heart skip a beat, that’s for damn sure.”

Rory is our heroine, let down by a man in the past and reticent to find love again. Rory lives for her autistic older brother and her relationship with him will bring tears to many eyes. Meghan Quinn does an amazing job in showing just how hard it is for parents and siblings alike when it comes to a severely autistic son/brother and the sacrifices they make, the lives they put on hold just to make sure that the life of the sufferer is as stable, loving and normal as possible.

“You’re the only guy who’s ever made me feel like I’m actually worth something.”

This book was emotional, heartfelt, romantic, and contemplative. It brings many issues to the fore and really took me by surprise. I didn’t even read the synopsis for this one and this book bit me on the ass in the best way. Meghan Quinn takes your emotions through the gamut as she navigates the complicated course of true love with perseverance and brutal honesty. I could feel the chemistry oozing off the pages, I adored the angst, I loved the friendships, I adored the characters, basically there was nothing not to love about this book. As ever, the smattering of Meghan Quin’s insane humour littered the pages and expertly broke up the heavier moments.

“The upside to falling for someone is never being alone.”

While the end is always expected in a duet, I must admit I was blindsided by this one and having an inkling as to how this was all going to play out in The Downside of Love, I was EXTREMELY nervous. While I have read The Downside of Love, I am not going to mention anything about it in this review, but let me just say, it is a good job it is just around the corner. Meghan Quinn has brought forward the release date to 1st July, so now would be an ideal time to dive into this one.

Book Description:

A troubled marriage. A one week hall pass. 

Gabriella Moore has it all; a beautiful husband, two adorable children, and a dream home. Yet, when, by chance, she befriends Eli online, she falls fast. And hard. She knows she must let him go, and saying goodbye is one of the hardest things she’s ever done, but she resolves to move on and forget about her beautiful stranger.

But then… she makes an unexpected discovery, and it shakes her perfect world to its core. Rules don’t apply anymore. An arrangement is made, and her husband gives her just one week with Eli. The rules are clear: One week. Sex only. No contact thereafter. Seems simple enough, but it’s never simple when it comes to love.

Praise for One Week:

“Roya Carmen's storytelling captures you and makes you want to be part of that world. This book hooked me from the beginning; I couldn't put it down and got to the end thinking "but I want more!" - A Book Lover's Emporium

“As soon as I saw the blurb I knew I needed to read thisbook. It's not an easy read, it might shake you a little, but it's worth it.” - The Bookery Review

"You are the Queen of theforbidden. I loved this story. It captivated me from the beginning..." - Geneva (reader)

Read the Prologue:

Dear Eli,
First, I just want to tell you how much you mean to me. And that’s the problem… you mean more to me than you should. I keep telling myself that we’re just friends, but I think we both know we’re more than that. I’m not exactly sure what I am to you, but you are everything to me. I think about you all the time, every hour of every day. It’s a little ridiculous, to be honest. I am a happily married mother of two, and I should start acting like it.
I’ve really enjoyed our conversations about art and life, but it’s time for me to end this. For a bachelor like you, this is just a fun distraction I’m sure. But for me, it’s so much more, and it really shouldn’t be. What I’m doing with you is not right. I love my husband and my children, so it’s because of them that I need to say goodbye.
I’ll always remember you. : ) And I’ll smile every time I do.
Your friend,
It’s just one or two paragraphs, but I’ve second-guessed every word, have pored over every single sentence, debating whether the right sentiments were expressed. I’ve spent over an hour going over it. Over and over. I’ve read the message more times than I can count. The last thing I want to do is hurt him. He just doesn’t fit into the picture. My picture; John and me, and the kids, and the white picket fence, the perfect life. He should have never been in it. Some days, I wish I’d never met him. Others, I’m so glad I did. For the brief time that I knew him, he truly was one of the best things in my life.
My heart is hammering, threatening to burst as I swallow hard, and finally press on the ‘Send’ arrow. As soon as I do, I feel sick. A heavy weight presses down at the center of my chest, threatening to crush me. I’ve never felt so horrible, so lost.
But it had to be done. I tell myself I’ve done the right thing. For my family. For me. For him.
Our relationship flashes before my eyes — the laughs, the jokes, every single conversation, every wink, every little skip of my heart, his beautiful eyes, and his sweet smile. Damn… his smile.
It all started innocently enough, as these things often do…

Our Review:

Reviewed by Donna ~ 3.5 stars

“One week is not enough.”

This author always crosses lines, so going into this one I knew there would be cheating of some sort, whether it be complicit or not, and as ever, Roya Carmen didn’t disappoint. Cheating does not bother me at all, I’m not fazed by it in books, unfortunately it is a part of life for some and I love a real romance. Real relationships with real issues and Roya Carmen certainly puts her own spin on this one.

“The only flawed part of a perfect moment is its ending.”

Some parts of this book I loved, it was ticking every box. I had the warm and fuzzies at times and in others blasts of hot anger, but this is nothing new with a Roya Carmen read. Any emotion evoked from a reader is a good one and means that the author has done her job and done it well. The emotional side was definitely on point, the moral side…questionable. The one-week hall pass was my biggest peeve in this book, it was the way it was manipulated, used as a weapon and only caused more misery. I felt the torment and the agony and whether the person deserved it or not, the method of revenge could have been done with a lot more grace and finesse. However, it did make for entertaining reading.

“I’ve only ever loved two women in my life. The first one broke my heart, but the second one mended it, made me feel like I could put myself out there again, made me think that I could give myself to someone else again… And then she destroyed me too. She was even crueler than the first.”

Both the husband and wife in this relationship make ridiculous choices when the foundation to their marriage has already been knocked a few times with a ten-tonne wrecking ball. A tenuous connection to each other is effectively destroyed by the end and only showed the fragility of their marriage in the first place.

“In a perfect world, I’d never have to say goodbye…”

However, this was a book I couldn’t put down, certain parts didn’t flow as well as others hence the 3.5 stars, but overall, I thoroughly enjoyed it. I lapped up the angst, the chemistry and the wrong choices and while I was screaming at my kindle at times, I knew it would be worth it in the end. I loved the setting of Copenhagen for some of this book and after reading this, is a place I would love to visit.

“A real man with a heart of gold.”

Blog Tour & Review ~ Cry Baby by Ginger Scott

We're celebrating the release of CRY BABY by Ginger Scott! One-Click today!

Cry Baby by Ginger Scott
A Contemporary Young Adult Romance
Release day: June 22, 2018

“Cry Baby is brilliantly written. It's hauntingly beautiful and heartbreaking and will leave you thinking about it for days afterward. Bravo, Ms. Scott. This boy-man stole my heart and I don't want it back.”- L.J. Shen, Bestselling Author

Book Description:

Tristan Lopez is loyal to his brothers. He doesn’t really have a choice, born into a gang that has a chokehold on every kid that roams its streets. He gave his life to them willingly, knowing if he did then one day this kingdom, led by boys drunk with power and ruled by fear, would all be his.

He was loyal through it all. Loyal when prison took his dad away. Loyal when his face was touched by the cold metal of the rival gang’s gun. Loyal even though his mom begged him to run the moment she returned home from rehab.

He thought about becoming someone else. It was hard not to crave the life of a regular 17-year-old. It’s the only reason he stayed in school—to pretend. But he always fell back in line.


Riley Rojas didn’t belong in Tristan’s real world. She should have only been part of the fantasy, one of the many faces he got to pretend with amidst rows of metal chairs and desks and whiteboards with assignments. But there she was, moving boxes from the back of an old pick-up into a house Tristan had shot up on a dare with his friends only a few months before.

Tall enough to look him in the eyes and strong enough to fill his shadow, Riley took up space on his streets, her loud mouth fearless in the face of the gang leaders who terrified everyone else. She pushed Tristan around on the hard court, and she balled better than his friends—better than him
sometimes. She challenged him. She needed him. He liked it. And when her pale blue eyes stared into his, he quit wanting to pretend.

He couldn’t ask her to leave because she’d only dig her heels in deeper. He couldn’t ask because he didn’t want her to go. She was blurring his lines. She was testing his loyalty.

He was falling in love.

And it was going to tear him apart.

“I told her she didn’t belong in my world once, but she did. She just didn’t belong in the darkness. She belonged in the light. I just never knew that she’d take me there with her. I never thought I belonged. I’m beginning to believe I do, though.”

Ginger Scott always writes exceptionally good YA novels and Cry baby is no different. With gang crimes forever in the news, Ginger Scott takes us readers on an emotional journey as we battle on the frontline with these kids as they navigate right from wrong. More often than not they are born into it or where they live dictates what they need to do to survive, and while this book centres around the basketball court, playing ball is not only the core activity.

“You…you get to dream… I get to fight to survive, and you get to dream. And I want to help you, but I can’t promise you I’ll be there…”

Tristan and Riley share one passion in life…basketball. Our heroine Riley is an aspiring pro basketball player, on the court is the only place she feels at home. Being brought up by her single dad is hard, especially when you live on the wrong side of the tracks. Riley has a heart of gold and makes the best out of the hand that she has been dealt. I loved the relationship that she had with her father and while more often than not she was his carer at times, making sure he ate etcetera, it was born out of necessity and survival.

“She knocked me off my axis, but she didn’t destroy my world. It’s more than that, though. I know it the second she turns her away from me and walks out the gym door. I didn’t destroy hers.”

Tristan had a heart of gold, but unfortunately for him, he didn’t choose his father. His father was the founder of one of the gangs and after his death it was expected that he would follow in his fathers footsteps. While he was too young to take over, he has been groomed and while certain lines haven’t been crossed, it was only a matter of time before they did.

“You aren’t some other girl. You’re unlike any other girl. You make me wish things were different, that I was different, so don’t you ever apologize for being unlike anyone else. You’re exceptional.”

Ginger Scott doesn’t beat around bush with this book and while it takes Tristan falling for Riley to make him want to escape, doing so is a lot harder. The only time you leave a gang in this day and age is in a box. I loved the flow of this book, it was effortless and the story always felt it was a natural progression. Nothing felt forced or too far fetched and the words kept me captivated throughout. Ginger Scott puts some twists and turns in there that definitely keep the reader in on their toes and while this particular course of true love was never going to run smooth, both these characters made the best of it. Loved it.

The Way We Burn by M Leighton

Book Description:

Irresistible attraction. Unimaginable danger. 

I knew from the moment Noah Williamson walked into the diner that he was haunted—deeply haunted—but I couldn’t resist the lure of him. He was gorgeous and fascinating and mysterious, and like a delicate moth to a brilliant blue flame, I was drawn to him. Drawn to his fire.

But if I’d known about his job, about what happened to his wife, I’d have run the other way. Before I got caught up in the red-hot blaze of his life. Before everything in my world got burned to the ground. 

It’s too late to run now. I hesitated and that was it. I fell. I fell for him before I knew there was danger in loving him. 

Noah once told me that this is the way we burn—together or not at all. At the time, I didn’t know what that meant.

Now I do. 

**The Way We Burn is a love story…with a kicker! Suspense, chemistry, and twists galore, I can’t wait for you to jump in! But don’t be afraid. This is a stand alone VERY romantic story with a VERY satisfying ending. I promise:) xoxo M**

Going for the Hole by LP Dover

Book Description:

Grip it softly.
Stroke it smooth.
And you’ll sink right into the hole. That’s my motto both on and off the golf course. The women come in full supply everywhere I go and there are no complaints. Maybe it’s the size of my driver that gets them going. 

I’m Lucas “Ace” Montgomery, professional golfer and world record holder for the longest drive in golf history. The PGA Tour has been my life, but it’s time for a break. A few relaxing weeks of drinking and golf with friends in Myrtle Beach is what I need. However, when a bright pink ball knocks me out on the course, and a blonde beauty comes to my aid, I expect to see a gallery girl, a.k.a a member of the Party Groupie Association. Trust me, those girls know how to have fun. Although, to my surprise, it’s not what I get at all. 

Dr. Ashley Locke is beautiful and everything I’d want if I was ever to get serious about someone. Unfortunately, she has no interest in me whatsoever which only makes me want her more. All she wants is to get through her friend’s bachelorette weekend and go back to her life, but after injuring me on the course, I’m not letting her run away so easily. When I want something, I get it. 

I’m not competing for money this time. All I want is to win her heart.

Sweet Little Bitch (Sweet #4) by Abbi Glines

Book Description:


I had never asked for a break. It had been a small request for space so I could think. Just some time to reflect and search myself. Loving Marty had never been the problem. It was the word marriage that haunted me.

In the end, none of it mattered.

Marty proved to be exactly what I feared. Unfaithful. And he’d fooled me, not once, but twice.

There sure as hell wouldn’t be a third time.


Three long years and the sight of her still feels like electricity jolting me awake from a sleep I didn’t realize I was in. Even with plenty of time to mentally prepare for this, being near Fiona reminded me what I’d never managed to find in another woman.

Even if she was crazy as hell. A mixture of hot, cold, funny, brutal all wrapped into a fucking gorgeous package.

When I left town, I was getting away from any memories of her. Protecting myself the only way I could.

But my twin brother and her half-sister were tying the knot. Unlike us, Shay and Mack could claw each other’s eyes out one minute and be madly in love the next.

Making it through this wedding weekend was all Mack asked of me. I could do it. I had to.

Even if it took all the whiskey in Savannah.

Fiona wouldn’t break me.

Not again.

The de Vincent brothers are back—and so is the intrigue that surrounds them—in New York Times bestselling author Jennifer L. Armentrout’s sizzling new novel . . .

Nicolette Bresson never thought she’d return to the de Vincents’ bayou compound. It’s where her parents work, where Nikki grew up . . . and where she got her heart broken by Gabriel de Vincent himself. Yet here she is, filling in for her sick mother. Avoiding Gabe should be easy, especially when so much of Nikki’s time is spent trying not to be stabbed in the back by the malicious hangers-on who frequent the mansion. But escaping memories of Gabe, much less his smoking-hot presence, is harder than expected—especially since he seems determined to be in Nikki’s space as much as possible.

Gabriel spent years beating himself up over his last encounter with Nikki. He’d wanted her then, but for reasons that were bad for both of them. Things have now changed. Gabe sees more than a girl he’s known forever; he sees a smart, talented, and heartbreakingly beautiful woman . . . one who’s being stalked from the shadows. Now, Gabe will do anything to keep Nikki safe—and to stop the de Vincent curse from striking again.

Or at least the ones that work in my kitchen. Fine, one man in particular. Wyatt Shaw is cocky and condescending and so far out of his element that he doesn’t know which way is up. Or how to run his brand new kitchen all by himself. 

That’s where I come in. Sous chef extraordinaire. Second in command. Bane of his existence. I am the reason Wyatt’s doing so well as the new executive chef of one of our city’s most prestigious restaurants. He has me to thank for his glowing accolades and five-star write-ups. Only if you were to ask him, he’d say I’m his biggest problem. 

Despite his discouragement and bullish behavior, I’ve set two goals for myself. 

The first? I’m going to fight my way to the top of this male-dominated industry and claim my own award-winning kitchen. 

The second? I’m going to do whatever it takes to ignore Wyatt and his rare smiles and the thickening tension that’s started to simmer between us. 

Wyatt Shaw might be Durham’s new shining star. He might be up for a James Beard Award. He might be my new boss and key to my future success, but he’s also in my way. 

So he can keep his smoldering looks and secret kisses. And he can be the one that figures out how to make it through service without getting distracted by me. 

I’m not the problem. The problem is him.

Whiskey Girl by Adriane Leigh

She was the one thing holding him together.
Until she was gone. 
And then there was whiskey.

Fallon Gentry has spent the last decade reliving one dark night in his head. The moment he lost the woman he loved when a single blink cascaded into a series of events that stole both of their lives. Now his nights are spent playing music in southern honky-tonks and nursing the memory of her the only way he knows how-at the bottom of a whiskey bottle.

A brief stint in Nashville, a hit song, and a brush with Hollywood couldn't bring him closer to God, but when the ghost of Augusta Belle Branson appears in his corner of another lonely dive bar late after dark, he's forced to confront everything he thought he knew about that fateful night, and a few things he didn't.

He's her contradiction, she's his salvation. 

A firestorm of emotion consumes them when they come together after ten lost years, every moment more revealing, more unpredictable, more intoxicating than the next until the only reckoning left for Fallon is the one he must make with himself. But this time, fate may have left an after-burn too bitter to swallow. This time, he may lose his whiskey girl for good.

No day is ordinary in a world where Technology and Magic compete for supremacy…But no matter which force is winning, in the apocalypse, a sword will always work.

Tasked with their protection, she's trapped between the magical heavyweights about to collide and plunge the state of Kentucky into a war that humans have no power to stop. Desperate to shield her people and their simple way of life, she would accept help from the devil himself—and Hugh d’Ambray might qualify.

Hugh needs a base, Elara needs soldiers. Both are infamous for betraying their allies, so how can they create a believable alliance to meet the challenge of their enemies? 

As the prophet says: “It is better to marry than to burn.” 

Hugh and Elara may do both.

Ashes of the Sun (The Gathering of the Sun #1) by A Meredith Walters

Book Description:

I was raised to believe in things you can't see.

It is the foundation of everything. I am taught to accept the unacceptable. To embrace the terrifying.

To give everything to my family.
To my church.
To my god.

Because I have a purpose. I have been trained for my calling for as long as I can remember. As an acolyte for the Gathering of the Sun, I am taught that my life isn't my own. I worship. I serve. And when the time comes, I will greet my fate with open arms and a sin free heart.

People call us a cult.

We are judged. We are ridiculed and reviled. Pastor Carter tells me they will be lost when the end comes. So we hide ourselves away from their sick and dangerous world. And my soul is safe because I follow the path.

I am the perfect disciple. I am confident in my devotion.

Until doubt arrives wearing the face of a boy I never expected to love.

Bastian doesn't follow the path. His destiny is his own. He paints me a picture of a beautiful world. His words contradict everything I have been told.

He invites me to live when I have been prepared to die.
He gives me something new to believe in.

Love becomes the ultimate crisis of faith and now I am torn between two futures. 
One that saves my soul.
And one that saves my heart.

Disgrace by Brittainy C Cherry

Book Description:

Each day I prayed for my husband to love me again.

After fifteen years together, he walked away from me, and into the arms of another.

I didn’t know how to cope. I didn’t know my worth. I didn’t know how to exist without him by my side.

All I wanted was for him to come back to me.

Then, Jackson Emery appeared.

He was supposed to be a distraction for my mind. A summer fling. A confidence boost to my bruised heart.

We were perfect for one another, because we both knew we wouldn’t last. Jackson didn’t believe in commitment, and I no longer believed in love. He was too closed-off for me, and I was too damaged for him.

Everything was fine, until one night my heart skipped a beat.

I didn’t expect him to make me laugh. To make me think. To make my sadness somewhat disappear.

When our time was up, my heart didn’t know how to walk away.

Each day I prayed for my husband to love me again, yet slowly my prayers began to shift toward the man who wasn’t right for me. 

I prayed for one more smile, one more kiss, one more laugh, one more touch… 

I prayed for him to be mine.

Even though I knew his heart wasn’t destined to love.
