One of Amazon’s Best Romances of the Month
One of Apple’s Best Books of April

A second chance doesn’t guarantee a touchdown in this new contemporary romance from the author of Intercepted.

Single-mother Poppy Patterson moved across the country when she was sixteen and pregnant to find a new normal. After years of hard work, she’s built a life she loves. It may include a job at a nightclub, weekend soccer games, and more stretch marks than she anticipated, but it’s all hers, and nobody can take that away. Well, except for one person.

T.K. Moore, the starting wide receiver for the Denver Mustangs, dreamt his entire life about being in the NFL. His world is football, parties, and women. Maybe at one point he thought his future would play out with his high school sweetheart by his side, but Poppy is long gone and he’s moved on.

When Poppy and TK cross paths in the most unlikely of places, emotions they’ve suppressed for years come rushing back. But with all the secrets they never told each other lying between them, they’ll need more than a dating playbook to help them navigate their relationship.

Who doesn’t love a good sports romance? If you think,”me,” then this is not for you. Sexy players in their tight uniforms and they tend to be a little alpha mixed with sweet,w hat’s not to love? Aside from that, I really enjoyed Fumbled. Alexa is a new to me author and I will definitely read other books by her!
At first I thought wow a lot of chapters( a lot of chapters can sometimes intimidate me) but the writer does well to make sure the story does not get away from her and not a lot of story gets lost in words!
Poppy is a single mom working in a cabaret at night as a cocktail waitress when a VIP group comes in and she is surprise when she comes face to face with her childhood sweetheart TK Moore who is The Mustangs bad boy football player! Sparks fly and old emotions come to the surface. But Poppy has a 9 yr old secret and TK is about to find out. TK is sweet but jaded sometimes. Watch the ride between this second chance romance that is a sure touchdown! This story had me rooting for both sides at times. Very enjoyable and a must read.

Cover Reveal for Kiss Me Tonight!!!

Published April 18, 2019 by bookbesties

 

I had it all.
The Super Bowl rings.
The hot shot TV gig.
Then I got fired.
Now I’m living in
middle-of-nowhere Maine, playing assistant coach to the woman of my nightmares.
Did I mention that she
and her son are my new neighbors?
If you talk to the
locals, they’ll tell you Aspen Levi is the queen of high school football.

But if you ask me, my new head coach is a pain in my left nut sac.

She’s too blonde.
Too peppy.
And way too sexy for my
peace of mind.
Only, one minute we’re
fighting, and the next I can’t keep my hands off her. One hot kiss. One
forbidden touch. I don’t do love but . . .
What I want, I take, and
what I want is Aspen Levi.

A Duke in Disguise(Review Post)

Published April 16, 2019 by bookbesties

51AaVoaxwTL

One reluctant heir

If anyone else had asked for his help publishing a naughty novel, Ash would have had the sense to say no. But he’s never been able to deny Verity Plum. Now he has his hands full illustrating a book and trying his damnedest not to fall in love with his best friend. The last thing he needs is to discover he’s a duke’s lost heir. Without a family or a proper education, he’s had to fight for his place in the world, and the idea of it—and Verity—being taken away from him chills him to the bone.

One radical bookseller

All Verity wants is to keep her brother out of prison, her business afloat, and her hands off Ash. Lately it seems she’s not getting anything she wants. She knows from bitter experience that she isn’t cut out for romance, but the more time she spends with Ash, the more she wonders if maybe she’s been wrong about herself.

One disaster waiting to happen

Ash has a month before his identity is exposed, and he plans to spend it with Verity. As they explore their long-buried passion, it becomes harder for Ash to face the music. Can Verity accept who Ash must become or will he turn away the only woman he’s ever loved?

8c084-amazonlink2

    Another strong leading lady by Cat Sebastian!  To say I am in love with Verity is an understatement.  She is strong, self-aware, independent, and witty- everything I love in a heroine.  Ash is the hero of my dreams.  His sense of personal honor and duty endeared him to my heart.  The dynamic of deep friendship turned romance, lends to a playful yet intense relationship that has become one of my favorites of the year.  

  Verity Plum’s world revolves around her business and keeping her brother out of jail for treason.  John “Ash” Ashby is an illustrator/ engraver who is best friends with Verity and Nate Plum. Upon his return to London, a side illustrator job crosses his path with Lady Caroline Talbot who turns his whole world upside down.  Meanwhile an attempt to keep Nate out of trouble pushes Ash and Verity to face their feelings for each other. What is to come of their budding romance when Ash accepts his new world?

  I enjoyed these characters, their romance, and this story so much!

An Accidental date with a Billionaire(Review Post)

Published April 16, 2019 by bookbesties

cover160570-medium

Samantha Matthews turned her back on her wealthy family to focus on social work. Those who know her think she’s the heart of kindness. Those who know her really well know she’s in a never-ending battle to make up for the harm her family’s companies inflict on the world. Which is how she finds herself at a charity bachelor auction of all places.

But oops, she was supposed to bid on her bff’s brother as a favor and accidentally bid on the wrong guy. Sue her for not being able to tell one stick-in-the-mud CEO from another.

Backstage, she goes to tell him not to worry about having to go through with a date or anything, but the oafish billionaire cuts her off dismissively. Looks her up and down, hands her a card with his assistant’s contact details, and reminds her that sex is definitely off the table.

Oh, she’ll call the assistant all right and have her make sure he wears jeans and comfortable shoes and to pick her up at seven a.m. The only “hammering” this guy is going to be doing is at Habitat for Humanity.

Too bad he turns out to be nothing like she expected.

8c084-amazonlink2

This was a new author to me.
Samantha is at the charity auction to help her friend Izzy and agrees to bid on Izzy brother. She is surrounded by a crowd that used to be her scene before her parents had some indiscretions. Now she works to redeem herself by working as a social worker and agreed to do a favor for her friend. Taylor is a wealthy businessman who has worked hard to get where he is at and agrees to this charity auction. Samantha can’t believe she didn’t bid on the right one and is immediately put off by Taylor’s attitude. At first both parties judge each other without giving each other a chance. I did have a hard time connecting with the book and its H and h. While the banter between the two was good and parts of it did drag a little fore me. I did find Samantha was a bit stubborn but, that didn’t take away from the story line. In all it was an ok read.

Cover Reveal for Sexy Filthy Boss by Piper Rayne!!!

Published April 5, 2019 by bookbesties

Banner Sexy Filthy Boss Piper Rayne
We are celebrating the Cover Reveal for Piper Rayne’s hot new office romance series, Sexy Filthy Boss releasing JUNE 11th

 

He’s the sexy alpha male in the corner office who goes through assistants faster than free donuts in the breakroom.

I’m the assistant who was chosen to cover for his last fire.

The owner of the company is clear—hook the biggest client in our firm’s history and there’s a partnership for him and a promotion for me. Stipulation—we do it together.

It doesn’t take a tarot card-reading psychic to figure out where our story is headed… late nights, trips out of town, and more than a few awkward moments filled with sexual tension.

No worries though. I pride myself on my willpower. I can totally ignore his sexy grin, his rock-hard body and his dreamy brown eyes. I will not become the woman other women hate.

But it turns out that Enzo Mancini has a lot of layers and if I don’t stop peeling, I’m going to lose everything, including my dignity.

To Wed an Heiress by Karen Ranney(review post)

Published March 28, 2019 by bookbesties

9780062841063_34b8e

Rebellion drove Mercy Rutherford to Scotland to escape the possessive grip of her fiancé. But it’s fate that lands her in the crumbling highlands castle of Lennox Caitheart. A dreamer with visions of inventing airships, he’s most certainly mad. Handsome beyond words, he’s also causing an irresistible flutter in her stomach beyond reason. When Gregory arrives to see their arranged marriage to its bitter end, Mercy desperately turns to Ross with an offer of her fortune—and her hand in marriage.

The Earl of Morton has a reputation for being a daredevil eccentric, but even he is hesitant to engage in such a rash proposition—no matter how utterly beguiled he is by the wildly independent American heiress. And yet, with so much at stake, how can he possibly say no? But when their unconventional union grows into a passionate and inseparable love, more than Gregory’s obsession threatens them. Now, Lennox and Mercy will have to risk more than their hearts to save it.

8c084-amazonlink2

  This book has such an exciting beginning that turns into the dramatic meeting of the leading characters that made me gasp, laugh, and have an anxiety attack all in the first chapter.  This book was so much fun to read.  Every chapter had me eager to reach the next. 

    On an errand to see her Aunt and Grandmother in Scotland the last thing Mercy Rutherford expected was to have the roof of her carriage ripped off by a “dragon”, or to fall in love with the insane Scotsmanshe saw riding it. 

    When Lennox Caitheart launched his airship from the side of a mountain the last thing he expected was to have to rescue an American women whose carriage was in the middle of his landing path.  Less than that he never expected to be attracted to her.

    I enjoyed this book for so many reasons, the biggest was the references to the innovations and scientific exploration in engineering of the era.  Add to that its Romeo and Juliet style romance and it has earned a place on my 2019 favorites list.
