Its time for some holiday romance to get you in the holiday spirit and this was a great start. I fell in love with Kyley style of writing and was excited for this read. This story doesnt only bring some holiday jingles but some laughter that will have you smiling till the end. Declan is a workaholic who used to work at a big time law firm and now works at a general counsel. He is demanding of his assistant Maddie who he feels is a god send of a assistant. Maddie likes to ruffle her boss feathers and has a insane attraction to Declan secretly. The dynamic between these two is refreshing and funny. You feel the heat between them and you know they will combust soon. Declan finds himself in a situation needing a fake girlfriend and he has his sights set on Maddie being the fill in. The warmth in Maddies eyes the more she spends time with Declan is so sweet. This was a feel good and funny read that was refreshing break from your normal reads. So far any read from this author has been a hit for me.
Her name is Erickson and her parents own The Bagel Place.
It wasn’t always that way. When we were nine, we were best friends. But then a feud between our dads ripped their successful business apart—and my best friend was ripped away too.
Our paths were bound to cross again. When both our families vie for the same spot on a Food Channel’s reality show, the producers decide to change the format, aligning us as allies.
In order to get our parents to agree to work together, Evan asks me to pretend to be her boyfriend, but I dare her to up the ante—be my fiancée. Fake fiancée… obviously.
As usual, I didn’t think things through. Turns out our parents have a lot of demands neither one of us expected. And all those demands lead to things feeling more real than fake.

Secretly hooking up with the team captain’s sister was a bad idea.
In my defense, the first time I saw her I didn’t know who she was.
Kind, gorgeous, a little naïve. Ginny brightened my world from day one.
I knew I was no good for her. She was just out of a relationship and I had a reputation for having a new girl in my bed every weekend.
I tried to do the right thing. Honest.
I’m the one who insisted we should be just friends.
That lasted about as long as you’d expect.
But Ginny? She’s the best–best friend, best everything.
So yeah, hooking up with the team captain’s sister wasn’t a great idea.
Would I do it again?
In a heartbeat.
Secret Review by Rebecca Jenshak
College sports romance at its finest and it will have you swooning. Ginny finds herself at the same school as her hockey hot shot brother. She is fresh off a heartbreak and just ready to make friends and find her way in life. Heath meets his teammates/roommates sister and he thinks she is hot. Of course it’s not that easy. Ginny has walls up since her breakup has her shy to make a move and Heath has some past family issues that has him enjoying the hookup life since he started school. Ginny challenges him and keeps Heath on his toes. The more time they hang out and try the friend zones the more you see the sparks start to turn to flames.
I was happy to read this book because you get to see past characters and the friend dynamic among this group is fun and light. Heath I absolutely loved. You know we love to see that one guy fall to his knees for the heroine. Ginny is funny and smart and feisty in one little package. The chemistry is fire between these two and everytime I turn the page I get butterflies. Very well written with a great group of characters.

Release Date: October 15
One of the wealthiest self-made men in New York needs a woman to secure his spot at the helm of his venture firm.
Problem is, Ben doesn’t want any girlfriend…
It will never work.
We’d have to lie to everyone.
He’s incapable of a healthy relationship, and I’ve been living a secret I can’t reveal – especially to my best friend.
…Or pretend to fall for the man who already owns my heart?
Here is a friends to lovers/fake relationship trope that was delightful. Ben and Daisy have been friends for a long time and have kept it platonic. Both are hard workers and they choose to have a fake relationship in order to move their careers in the right direction. You know the thing is that feelings come to the surface and it always tends to get messy. Sparks are intense but they don’t want to ruin the friendship. How far are they willing to go and can they stop the lines from being blurred? Ben and Daisy had a great start with their friendship that made you cross your fingers and hope that they would be able to stay truly together. There was some heat in the sexy scenes and these two were adorable. Great read for me.

Every Duke needs a Duchess…
Hugo Wilde, the Duke of Lindow, has a drafty castle, eight naughty children—and no wife. Ophelia, Lady Astley, has a fine house, one well-behaved daughter—and no husband.
Hugo takes one look at Ophelia and loses his heart, but she doesn’t want more children or a castle. She takes one look at him and heads for her carriage.
Desperate to find a duchess, Hugo identifies an appropriate lady to woo. Yet when he meets Ophelia again, the duke realizes that he will marry her, or no one.
Now he faces the greatest challenge of his life.
He must convince Ophelia that their blazing sensuality, his exquisite castle, and his eight charming children add up to a match made in heaven.
When duke finds his duchess, can he win her heart?
Finally, we get to learn about how the extraordinary Wilde Family came to
be. We also get to see how love truly can not only happen at first sight but, that it can also happen twice in a lifetime. This is a book not only about love but about hope and incredibly the hope comes from the hero of this story rather than the heroine. This book has the hero of my
dreams. Hugo is a dedicated husband (even when his wife is not), a devoted and loving father, and a hopeless romantic. What more could you ask for? How for lightening to strike twice in his life and for him to fall head over heels in love at first sight for a second time. This story is so
sweet and warm, and it just felt good reading it. I am so glad this was Hugo and Ophelia’s story it fits them so perfectly.
Hugo Wilde, Duke of Lindow is the newly divorced father of 8 children in desperate need of a mother. With a set of rules from his sister to help him find his next wife he heads to London with half a heart and low expectations for success. After his first marriage was a based
on flirtatious love at first sight, and his second marriage ended miserably, love wasn’t a priority for this next one. All he needed was a strong society lady who could help him successfully present his daughter’s to society and who had no interest in the marital bed. Well, he thought that was all he needed until at the very first appearance at the very first ball when he laid eyes on Lady Astley and fell instantly in love. Can he convince her he isn’t crazy? Will she want to take on such a large family? Can she love him and his children as much as he does? Ophelia, Lady Astley is happy in her life as a young widow and mother.
She had a content marriage that left her with the freedom to live in luxury and raise her daughter as she chooses. Her whole world revolves around her little girl and she cannot imagine her life any other way. Never would she let a handsome Duke desperate to find a wife to mother his spirited children into her heart or her life to change her little family. Especially not when said Duke accosts her in her own carriage so he can propose marriage to her after barely meeting one time.
The nerve of that man moving on to another woman days after she turned down his harebrained proposal. So much for his claims of love. So why can’t she get him or his children out of her head? Why does she think the only woman who can love any of them the way they need and deserve is her? This book was so sweet and it just makes my heart happy thinking about it. I hope you
#1 New York Times, USA Today, and internationally bestselling author Jennifer L. Armentrout returns to the world of the Lux with this steamy, shocking third installment of the Origin series that will leave readers reeling.
The hardcover edition of The Brightest Night includes a bonus short story, and the first printing will be signed by the author.
He is the darkest star.
She is the burning shadow.
And together, they will bring about the brightest night.
Less than a year ago, Evelyn Dasher was a normal girl, living a safe, rather unremarkable life—a life that was a total lie. Now she’s learned the truth about who she was and what she is.
Hidden within Zone 3, she knows that if she loses control of her dangerous abilities again, she not only puts everyone in the secret community at risk, but also the beautiful, deadly inhuman Luc. He will do anything to keep her safe. Lie. Barter. Beg. Kill.
But there are truths that not even Luc can prepare for, and as Evie’s abilities evolve, the consequences of everything he’s done turn devastating.
Luc is stepping into the darkness. But Evie might already be lost to the shadows.
I feel like I’m Luc’s biggest fan, I have re-read the last book in this series(The Burning Shadow) a million times because I love him so much. The Brightest Night picks up exactly where TBS left off, with Luc and Evie and their bunch finally at a safe location after running from the big bad. People, Luxen, Hybris and human alike are kinda weary of Evie and are keeping her at an arm’s distance. All expect Luc, never Luc. This book, to my delight, it JAM-PACKED with a lot of Luc and Evie goodness!! There were so many good moments between them, sweet and funny and also a little steamy. Evie has to basically control what’s controlling her all the while exploring her budding romance with Luc as well as uncovering her memories. With all our favorites from the Lux world sprinkled in, this book will answer a lot of Evie’s questions as well as the readers. Like how much her life intertwined with Luc’s even before she meet him (for the second time) and how far Luc is willing to go to protect her, even from herself. But, in true JLA fashion, it will also leave you with a lot of questions, like what happed to the(Spoiler) and a jaw dropping ending that no one saw coming.
I laughed and blushed and laughed so more, then I cried..so hard. With a year until the last one come out, I will defiantly be re-reading this one as much as the last!
Lorraine Heath ends her bestselling Sins for All Seasons series with the hero readers have been waiting for!
She wants lessons in seduction
Althea Stanwick was a perfect lady destined to marry a wealthy lord, until betrayal left her family penniless. Though she’s lost friends, fortune, and respectability, Althea has gained a scandalous plan. If she can learn to seduce, she can obtain power over men and return to Society on her terms. She even has the perfect teacher in mind, a man whose sense of honor and dark good looks belie his nickname: Beast.
But desire like this can’t be taught
Benedict Trewlove may not know his parentage but he knows where he belongs—on the dark side of London, offering protection wherever it’s needed. Yet no woman has ever made such an outrageous request as this mysterious beauty. Althea is out of place amongst vice and sin, even if she offers a wicked temptation he can’t resist. But as the truth of his origin emerges at last, it will take a fierce, wild love to overcome their pasts.
Lorraine Heath must have heard our prayers because this is it! The finale of the A Sin for All Seasons series is all about the mysterious Beast Trewlove. Throughout this series we have come to know and love each of the Trewlove siblings as well as the people they let into their hearts. From Mick to Fancy and now to Beast this crew of bastards, raised by the same woman in the slums of London show what it means when they say the ties with the family you choose can be stronger than the family you are born into. Knowing the circumstances of their start in life only makes the amazing things they have accomplished in their lives that much more incredible. This theme continues in this final book where we get to meet and know the notorious Beast Trewlove and see what makes him who he is and just where he fits in the Trewlove family.
As a lady born into high society, Althea Stanwick would have never imagined that she would find herself working as a bar maid or that she would ever consider becoming a “kept woman”. But after a scandal involving her father sees her and her brothers penniless and ostracized by the society to which they once belonged that is exactly where she has ended up. The only problem is she has no clue on how to be seductive or draw a man’s intrigue. For her plans for the future to work she not only needs to learn these skills, but she needs to learn them quickly and be the best at them. Who better to teach her than the dark and dangerous proprietor of a successful brothel?
Sure, Beast Trewlove has earned a reputation that goes along with his name, and sure he owns a brothel, but he didn’t come by either of them for any reason other than insuring the safety of himself and the women who work for him when they could not protect themselves. In fact, he hates prostitution and he has made a plan to help all of the girls working in his brothel get respectable jobs so he can close up shop and find a new venture. If only he could find a proper lady, who may or may not be down on her luck, who could teach the girls the expectations of high society and help them polish their rough manners he is sure his plan would be a success. It is with this in mind that he makes a proposal to the beautiful, but obviously out of place, siren working as a bar maid at his sister’s pub. Will he get the deal he was expecting, or will her counter proposal bring the Beast to his knees?
As you all know I LOVED this series and I am sad to see it end but I am beyond happy that it ended with us knowing Beast. I adored Beast and Althea to the point where I can say this was my favorite book in the series. I really hope all of you enjoy it as much as I did.
USA Today bestselling author Vivienne Lorret continues her charming new trilogy with a bluestocking whose search for information on the mating habits of scoundrels has her stumbling upon the missing heir to an earldom… in the London underworld.
Jane Pickerington never intended to start a brawl in a brothel. She only wanted to research her book. Yet when her simple study of scoundrels goes awry, she finds herself coming to the rescue of a dark, enigmatic stranger… who turns out to be far more than an average rake out for a night of pleasure. He’s positively wild!
Only the most feral and cunning could have survived foundling homes and work houses. Orphaned as an infant, Raven never had another name. At least… not until he meets her. Now he’s face-to-face with the one person who recognizes the strange birthmark on his arm and can reinstate him to his blue-blooded birthright.
All at once, Raven’s life takes a turn. His knowledge of dark alleys and gaming hells never prepared him for gilded ballrooms. So Jane becomes his tutor. Yet, the more lessons in decorum she offers, the more this untamed scoundrel wants to teach her all the ways to be wicked.
STOP WHAT YOU ARE DOING AND GO READ THIS BOOK!
I was already a fan of this author before, but seriously, this book made me fall in love with her all over again! After reading the first book in The Mating Habits of Scoundrels series and finding my most relatable character ever, I was slightly worried about how book number 2 would hold up. WOW was I wrong to worry. Don’t get me wrong, Winnie will always be my spirit animal, but Jane’s book just pushed its way into my top 5 favorite reads from 2020. Jane was such a fun character to read and get to know that I can only imagine how much fun she was create and grow. This book had me literally laughing out loud one minute then holding my breath in anticipation the next, fighting back tears of sympathy on one page and eagerly championing hope on the next, it is a page turner through and through.
Jane Pickerington will stop at nothing to answer a question once she sets her mind to it. Her overly analytical, scientific, brain just won’t give her any peace until she has solved the mystery behind what ever it is. So, it is no wonder that doing field research for the guidebook on scoundrels she is writing, with her friends, lands her in a precarious situation, well more than one if we’re counting. One such situation just so happens to cross her paths with the perfect research specimen. A rake who not only gives in to his baser needs, he is driven by them, or so she thinks.
When he headed to Moll’s brothel that night and saw a debutant climbing into a window from the alley, Raven should have left well enough alone. But his curiosity got the better of him as did the smoking pink candle she lit on her way out of the same window after creating mayhem out on the main floor. Determined to find out who she was and force her to turn his skin back to a normal shade the last person he expected to meet was a clever bluestocking who would turn his whole world upside down.
I am eager to see how Vivienne Lorret lets the rest of this series play out and to see if the girl’s book will ever get completed, but really, I am most eager to see if the next book will be as good or better than its predecessors. The wait for book 3 is going to be a true test of patience as I am so addicted to this series. I can’t wait to see what you all think of it too.
All Scot and Bothered is the second book in the stunning Devil You Know series by USA Today bestselling author Kerrigan Byrne!
They are a dangerous duke, a fierce lord, and an infamous earl—dark, bold, brave men who know exactly what they want. And there is only one woman who can bring them to their knees…
He is first and foremost—at everything. A man who’s made his own way through ruthless cunning and sheer force of will. A strong and imposing Scot who can turn on the charm but does not suffer fools. His title: Lord Chief Justice of the High Court. His name: Cassius Gerard Ramsay. His mission: To investigate the goings-on at London’s most notorious gaming hell, owned and operated by one of the most intriguing and desirable women he’s ever met.
IN THIS GAME OF LOVE, THE RULES DO NOT APPLY
Cecelia Teague was an orphan facing a rather dire future—until a secret benefactor from her mother’s scandalous past swept into her life. Sent to a prestigious boarding school and later to university, Cecelia believed high society was at her fingertips…Then, from out of nowhere, she became the inheritor of a gambling establishment. Now Cecelia must live two lives: one as a proper lady who finds herself undeniably drawn to Lord Ramsay and the other as a savvy gaming hell owner trying to save her business from the very same man. He has no idea she is both women…and Cecelia would like to keep it that way. But what happens when consuming passion and escalating danger threaten to reveal the truth?
“With the Devil You Know series, Byrne once again delivers the beautifully nuanced characters and seductive storytelling her readers have come to expect.”—Booklist
This is the first book by Kerrigan Byrne that I am reviewing for all of you, however it is in no way the first book by her that I have had the pleasure of reading. I first heard of this author while I was attending my first book convention. As I was meeting authors and told them what genera I read and review they all kept bringing up her name, so naturally I felt that if her books are on the minds of all of the authors I am so in love with, I would be insane not to see what all the buzz was about. I read her entire Victorian Rebels series and instantly knew I would jump at the chance to review her work for all of you if I got the opportunity. That opportunity is now, with this new series, and this book. Sadly this book is number 2 in the series ( no worries, I will read and review book 1 for all of you as soon as possible, even though it has been out for a while), but honestly if it wasn’t printed on the cover I would have never known it had a predecessor. The first word that comes to mind when I think of this book is “thrilling”. It truly takes you on an emotional roller coaster from its first paragraph in the prologue straight to its last period. I loved every second of it!
Cecilia Teague had a rough start in life but seeing her now enjoying all the riches life has to offer, you would never know it was only thanks to an unknown benefactor who rescued her many years ago. Little did she know that when she inherited a casino, she also instantly inherited the wrath of the Lord Chief Justice of the High Court. She also didn’t know that by becoming the owner of the casino she would face the challenge of a lifetime: juggling her new business obligations and her life as a member of society while making sure the two worlds NEVER cross. But with the help of her best friends she may find a way to combine the two worlds and win the favor of the Lord Chief Justice.
Cassius Gerard Ramsey, Lord Chief Justice to the High Court, has made it his mission to find evidence of illegal activity so he can shut down London’s most notorious gaming hell. That is until the alluring owner of said gaming hell finds herself the primary target of someone who is determined to kill her. As determined as he is to shut down her business he is just as determined to keep her safe from harm and to discover who is trying to kill her. Will the time he spends investigating and protecting her open his eyes to the true corruption in the world and soften his resolve towards her or will he finally have enough evidence to shut her down for good?
I really, really enjoyed this book and can’t wait to read and tell you about both books number 1 and number 3 as soon as I can.
Sedona is one strong independent woman and she has been through some drama including leaving the love of her life and making the decision she thought was best when she was pregnant. Now she is trying to work through life with a toddler and navigate her overwhelming family. She named her daughter Palmer and she is deaf. Palmer wins your heart from the start. I love the bond she develops with her dad. At first I was team Sedona all the way! Jamison once you hear his story and all of the demons he has worked through you slowly start to open your heart for him. It crushes him to see Sedona pregnant as he wanted to be together again. I was rooting for them all the way. This book has all the feels and deals with alcohol abuse and child with an impairment and it will have you crying and laughing! Sad to see the end of the Bailey’s but glad this book was a great end!
