Ralph
Being traded to Dallas was a dream come true. I had everything I wanted, my game had never been better, and my wife was due to have our baby any day now.
What could go wrong?
Everything.
I was now raising our baby on my own. After hockey practice and games, I didn’t have time to sleep, let alone make sure my social media was up to par.
I never thought I’d get a second chance at love.
Candace
When my hotshot brother was drafted in the NHL, he didn’t have time to do his social media, so I took over for him. Little did I know it would become my career.
My plate was full with over fifty NHL players, and I wasn’t taking on any new clients.
Yet when he showed up on my doorstep with the cutest little girl in the whole world, I couldn’t say no.
I was just helping, but it turned into more than that. He’s the man I’ve been waiting for.
All it takes is one touch, one night, one chance, and only one kiss.

Drew by Amanda Shelley (Review Post)

Published October 1, 2020 by bookbesties



Release Date: September 29

My heart races, palms sweat, and knees go weak. 
 
I’ve never seen anyone like Drew in a science lab. He’s made me a firm believer in chemistry existing outside a textbook.
 
Then his ego shows up.
 
Nope. No, thank you. Moving on. I mean… who has an entourage in college?
 
When our professor announces we’ll be stuck as lab partners, I nearly lose my mind – and not in a good way. 
 
I can’t afford the type of distractions Drew brings.

I always love a college sports romance and this one didn’t disappoint. This story is an example of not going judging a book by its cover. When Drew first sees Abby he thinks of her as a nerd and the perfect lab partner for class. When Abby first meets Drew she feels like he is a jock and cocky. When they both get to know each other they start to see that they actually have more in common than they think. Its sweet to see the transition between these two. Very well written with supporting characters that you will love. This was a win for me .

Force:A Driven World Novel by Emma Louise
 

 This second chance romance set in K Brombergs Driven World which I have read before and definitely a fan. I am new to Emma Louise but I have become a fan. High school sweethearts who thought they would be forever. Tucker uses his driving as an outlet and he is happy to have his love Brooke by his side until one night changes for them and sets them both on different paths.

After many years Brooke moves away from home for a new job. She has worked hard to get where she is but has never forgotten about her first love. Tucker has come a long way in his career as a driver and is not fully living. One night changes for both of them when they come face to face with each other. When they see each other you see the static between them and you know that there will be a struggle! The chemistry between these two is real and i love seeing them interact. Has too much time passed? Are they too different from their past? I definitely enjoyed and it was a win for me. Strong characters and a strong Heroine was a definite win for me.

Someone to Romance by Mary Balogh (The Westcott Series Book ) Review Post

Published August 25, 2020 by bookbesties

51ivSKVF06L

Love comes when you least expect it in this captivating new novel in the Westcott Regency romance series from New York Times bestselling author Mary Balogh.

Lady Jessica Archer lost interest in the glittering excitement of romance after her cousin and dearest friend, Abigail, was rejected by the ton when her father was revealed to be a bigamist. Now that she is twenty-five, however, Jessica decides it is time to wed. Though she no longer believes she will find true love, she is still very eligible. She is, after all, the sister of Avery Archer, Duke of Netherby.

Jessica considers the many qualified gentlemen who court her. But then she meets the mysterious Gabriel Thorne, who has returned to England from the New World to claim an equally mysterious inheritance. Jessica considers him completely unsuitable, especially when, while they are still barely acquainted, he announces his intention to wed her.

When Jessica guesses who Gabriel really is, however, and watches the lengths to which he will go in order to protect those who rely upon him, she is drawn to his cause–and to the man.

Grab the Westcott Series  HERE

I am so addicted to this series, I need it to never end!  I love these characters, this family, and this book.  I absolutely adore how strong and independent Jessica is, all while she embraces her life as a prominent Lady of society and without compromising her new found sense of self.   After making the decision to marry this season with or without love, her steadfast refusal to be viewed as simply a title with proper training has endeared her to my heart forever.  I’m so very glad that the author wasn’t afraid to allow Jessica to have and acknowledge her darker feelings of jealousy, betrayal, and being left behind (all of which are natural, once you know her back story) rather than setting the time line of the book ahead far enough that it could be assumed she had moved past them.  Seeing that facet of a character’s personality truly makes them stand out in my eyes.   In a series such as this, with so many characters it is Mary Balogh’s ability to make each one unique that keeps readers coming back for more.

 Lady Jessica Archer, daughter of the Duke of Netherby, is determined that this is the season she will really look for a husband.  Sure she has had several admirers through the years but none of them have ever stirred romantic feelings in her heart.   Ready to cut her losses she is prepared to view the issue as a business arrangement rather than one based on love, or so she thought until a good-looking stranger  tells her he intends to marry her without even knowing more than just her name and tile.  It is in that instance that she discovers how much she truly desires a romantic match and is unwilling to settle for less.  Will the stranger heed her words and be able to romance her to the alter, or will the season’s charming new comer win her hand?

Gabriel Thorne, born Gabriel Rochford, the presumed dead Earl of Lyndale, has returned from the grave (well actually from America) to claim his title and find a countess.  Not just any countess, but one who has poise, grace, and the training to help him run his estate.  Only one woman checks off all the boxes on his list of requirements and he will do whatever it takes to make her his bride.  Much to his surprise when he tells her of his intentions she gives him a piece of her mind and tells him he needs to romance her before she will even entertain the idea.  Will he be able to show her the romance she needs to convince her to marry him, or will his family drama and another suitor chase her away?

Another great addition to the Wescott Novel series that I hope you all enjoy as much as I did.

A survivor on the run

After refusing the laws of her sadistic pack, Skye Markham barely escapes with her life, seeking sanctuary with the feared Blackwater pack. Hunted by her former Alpha and his soldiers, she’s determined to create a life even though she knows they will come for her.

An alpha with a pack to protect

As the next alpha in line, Remy Holt has spent years guarding the Blackwater pack and his family from those who seek to seize control and destroy them. The last thing he needs or wants is Skye Markham and the dangers she brings with her adding to the stress on his pack, but his wolf has a different opinion. He wants her, and after one moment that shouldn’t have been possible, he knows he’ll never be able to let her go.

A bond unlike any other

Skye thought she was finally safe, but as her bond with Remy strengthens, the shifter world starts to break apart at the seams. Missing shifters, a dying population, and pack wars are all causing their sanctuary to crumble around them, and Skye is trapped in the middle of it all. Someone is out to destroy the pack and if they succeed, there will bring down everything Remy has sought to protect and for Skye… maybe there is no such thing as a sanctuary.

Excerpt

He shifted towards me. “This is all new to me, too, Skye.”

A sobering thought crossed my mind. The one that had been plaguing me since the woods. “Do you want this, Remy?”

The corner of his mouth hitched up for a second as he looked at me. Slowly, he raised a hand, tracing the curve of my jaw. I shivered, remembering the feel of his hands stroking when I was a wolf.

This was so much better.

He inched even closer. His breath, minty and warm, fanned over my face. His eyes tracked the movements of his fingers hungrily.

“Yeah,” he answered roughly, thickly. “I want this. I want you.” He dipped his head and covered my mouth with his.

Fire ignited in me the second Remy’s lips touched mine, soft but demanding all at once. His hands settled on my hips, pulling me closer. The smell of him from earlier in the evening, pine and soap and something that was entirely Remy, filled my senses.

His large hands almost spanned my waist, his fingers flexing against the soft material of my yoga pants. His tongue teased the seam of my lips until I opened my mouth on a gasp, letting him in.

My hands had been clenched into fists on his chest, the fabric of his t-shirt bunched in my grip. I relaxed my hold now, letting my hands slide over the hard muscle and up around his neck, pressing my chest flush against his.

Flames licked through my blood, and I was sure I was going to combust any second.

I was one hundred percent okay with death by kissing.

Collide by Amanda Shelley (Review Post)

Published July 20, 2020 by bookbesties



Release Date: June 30




Falling head over heels was the last thing I expected.

Literally.
Coffee is everywhere – and more than my ego is bruised.

When the handsome stranger I plowed into calls me by name, mortification sinks in.

He rushes off to class. I run home to change, hoping to forget the whole incident.

If only I could be so lucky.

I quickly find it’s a small world and Gavin Wallace is completely unavoidable.

Everywhere I turn he’s there. In my classes. Hanging with my friends.

I’ve got his full attention and I have to admit, I like it a lot more than I should.

Sweet romance that buds between Alex and Gavin. After they Collide, literally, they have a PG friends to lovers path that will hopefully lead to a HEA.  They both are hardworking and fun to be around. Alex (Alexis) was a bit flighty at times but the relationship that these two build up is perfect YA material. These two are cute together but i was hoping for a bit more angst. Alexis is trying to spread her wings from being at home with all her family. I did feel that their romance developed really quickly. Overall it was cute but fell a little short for me.

This is a new author to me and i really enjoyed her writing style.

Chari runs into billionaire and local celebrity Enzo at her brothers celebration. To her he is a crush but also her brothers best friend. Enzo wants Chari after their encounter and he is ready to fight for his best friends sister. These two will have to overcome several obstacles including the distance since they both live in diffrent area codes and also getting the blesdinh of dearest brother.  Chari was a strong character but had some insecurities to work out. Enzo was this powerful local celebrity with a side of sexiness. The chemistry between these two was scorching. The storyline had a great flow, just the right amount of heat and strong characters were enough to make me a fan. Cant wait to see whats next!

Last Name by Dr. Rebecca Sharp(Review Post)

Published June 30, 2020 by bookbesties

🎲🎲 HOT NEW RELEASE 🎲🎲

Last Name by Dr. Rebecca Sharp is #LIVE! Don’t miss this swoony mistaken marriage standalone that will take you from the slots in Las Vegas to the shores of Lake Tahoe! #One-click today!

From bestselling author, Dr. Rebecca Sharp, comes a funny accidental marriage story about a loss, luck, and an unexpected love…

What happens in Vegas…

A regret-free girls’ weekend was supposed to help Carrie Bishop forget about her last relationship and cross-country move. Because when you’ve lost everything, letting loose is easy.

James Arden knew the stakes in Vegas were high, but saving a beautiful blonde at a Blackjack table wasn’t the kind of risk he thought he’d be taking.

Unfortunately, there’s only one recipe for Vegas. One part instant connection. Two parts too much alcohol. A splash of scavenger-hunt serendipity. Shake and enjoy.

Until Carrie wakes to a ring on her finger and a marriage certificate tying her to the illegible signature of a man who’s gone.

It was supposed to be just one night, but now she doesn’t even know her last name.

Coming home married was bad, but walking into work the next day was worse. Carrie’s mistake didn’t stay in Vegas, and her mystery husband is no longer a mystery: 𝘩𝘦’𝘴 𝘩𝘦𝘳 𝘯𝘦𝘸 𝘣𝘰𝘴𝘴.

James knows what they have is special, and he’ll do anything to prove it. And as their undeniable attraction ups the ante, Carrie hopes she can get back her name without losing her heart in the process.

BUY NOW!!!

This New to Me Autho, was a cute and funny read. Perfect length for me. Alcohol and Vegas equals lots of mischief.  Carrie is in Vegas for a girls getaway before she and her co workers have to deal with the layoffs at work now that it will be under new management.  She gets separated from her friends and meets James. One night of fun mixed with some alcohol and Carrie now has a new last name and a shiny piece of jewelry on her hand. Turns out the new management is now also her new husband.

Carrie was funny and sweet and just trying to figure out what would be next after a horrible past relationship that leaves her with understandable trust issues. James was cute and broody at times. The relationship between these two was flirty and I enjoyed their banter.  James was playing for keeps while Carrie was at arms length. It was fun to see these two fall in love.

Devil of Downtown by Joanna Shupe(Review Post)

Published June 30, 2020 by bookbesties

51a5RwcD+jL (1)“Nothing makes me happier than a new book from Joanna Shupe!”―Sarah MacLean

The final novel in Joanna Shupe’s critically acclaimed Uptown Girl series about a beautiful do-gooder who must decide if she can team up with one of New York’s brashest criminals without losing something irreplaceable: her heart.

Manhattan kingpin.
Brilliant mastermind.
Gentleman gangster.

He’s built a wall around his heart…

Orphaned and abandoned on the Bowery’s mean streets, Jack Mulligan survived on strength, cunning, and ambition. Now he rules his territory better than any politician or copper ever could. He didn’t get here by being soft. But in uptown do-gooder Justine Greene―the very definition of an iron fist in a velvet glove―Jack may have met his match.

She wears hers on her sleeve…

Justine is devoted to tracking down deadbeat husbands and fighting for fair working conditions. When her mission brings her face-to-face with Jack, she’s shocked to find the man behind the criminal empire is considerably more charming and honorable than many “gentlemen” she knows.

Forming an unlikely alliance, they discover an unexpected desire. And when Justine’s past catches up with them, Jack may be her only hope of survival. Is she ready to make a deal with the devil…?

OUT NOW!!!

Catch the whole Uptown Girls series HERE!

bright pink coloured stars scattered on a black background

Joanna Shupe has done it again!  Another amazing book that is a great closing to her Uptown Girls series.   As you all know this series follows the Greene sisters as they buck tradition and forge their own ways and find love in the streets of New York.  Three sisters, three books, each one with their own unique personality and story.  These leading ladies are inspirational.   They are game changers and social justice warriors and I love them equally for it.  The men who win over their hearts are equally as endearing and work to make change in the world right along with the women they love.  I adore this book and LOVE this series, and am sad it has ended but I cannot wait to see what adventures the next series will bring. 

Justine, the youngest Greene sister is just as courageous, independent, and driven as her older sisters.  But as the quiet, plain, and sensible sister, they refuse to see it.  It doesn’t matter that through her work, for the Lower East Side Legal Aid Society, she goes in to some of the most dangerous parts of New York to face down wife deserters who don’t want to be found and factory owners who maintain poor working conditions, most times completely alone.  It’s on one of her investigations that she finds her way to the office of crime boss Jack Mulligan.  She needs Mr. Mulligan’s help and in order to get it she makes a deal with the devil that will change her life. 

Jack Mulligan is an intimidating, good looking, powerful man who is used to getting what he wants without question from anyone who crosses his path. The youngest Greene sister is not his usual type, not like her stunning older sisters, but her fiery passion for justice sets her a-glow, add to that the fact that she refuses to succumb to his charms nor his intimidation tactics and he just may have met his match. He was shocked and aroused when she, “downtown’s notorious do-gooder” laughed in his face after coming to his office asking for help with one of his men. Of course he will help her, but he doesn’t do anything for anyone without a price, and now he wants to see just how far the do-gooder will go to get what she wants.  He finds himself drawn to her and will use any means at his disposal to keep her close.  Will he win her over or will he lose everything trying?

Again I am inspired by these characters, loved this series, and adored this book and I hope you do too.

Daring and the Duke by Sarah MacLean(Review Post)

Published June 30, 2020 by bookbesties

51Jzi61WAaL

New York Times bestselling author Sarah MacLean returns with the much-anticipated final book in her Bareknuckle Bastards series, featuring a scoundrel duke and the powerful woman who brings him to his knees.

Grace Condry has spent a lifetime running from her past. Betrayed as a child by her only love and raised on the streets, she now hides in plain sight as queen of London’s darkest corners. Grace has a sharp mind and a powerful right hook and has never met an enemy she could not best…until the man she once loved returns.

Single-minded and ruthless, Ewan, Duke of Marwick, has spent a decade searching for the woman he never stopped loving. A long-ago gamble may have lost her forever, but Ewan will go to any lengths to win Grace back…and make her his duchess.

Reconciliation is the last thing Grace desires. Unable to forgive the past, she vows to take her revenge. But revenge requires keeping Ewan close, and soon her enemy seems to be something else altogether—something she can’t resist, even as he threatens the world she’s built, the life she’s claimed…and the heart she swore he’d never steal again.

OUT NOW!!!!!

HOLY INCREDIBLE ENDING TO A SERIES, BATMAN!!!

I thought I loved the first 2 books in The Bareknuckle Bastards series but WOW this one takes it to a completely different level!   You wanna talk about my weakness for strong leading ladies? Sarah MacLean’s Grace/Dahlia has completely brought me to heel.  I am so enamored with this incredibly strong, powerful, self-made woman who is the queen of her world that I don’t know how I am going to come to terms with this being the last book in the series.  I think I am still kind of in denial about it.  Such an incredible heroine requires an equally incredible story to show case everything that makes her so amazing and this book with its darkness, plot twists, and unexpected romance leaves nothing behind.

             Grace “Dahlia” Condry rules the darkest streets of Covent Gardens from 72 Shelton Street, her very successful, “high-end”, secret ladies club.  She literally fought to build her current life and her success while being hunted by the demons of her past.  Now that she rules her world she is ready to take revenge for the betrayal that left her and her brothers alone, scarred, and hiding in the rough streets of London as children.  Ewan broke her heart now she will break his soul.  Can she be so lucky as to finally be rid of the boy who was her first love turned man who is her worst enemy? Or will keeping her enemy close change her mind about pushing him away?

Since the death of his evil father, Ewan, Duke of Marwick has been madly hunting for the girl he gave his heart to as a child.  The girl, he sacrificed everything to keep safe. The girl, who he would do anything, even destroy his own brothers, to have back in his life.  The girl, who is the only person in the world who could shatter his soul with her words and cause him to remake himself in the attempt to be worthy of her.  Grace, the only girl, the only person, he will ever love.  Every decision he has made since meeting her has been for her.  He is determined to get the chance to explain what happened that night and to show her he is not the monster she thinks he is.  Will he be able to remake himself and finally regain her trust?  Will she believe his side of the story and know he would never hurt her?  Will everything he has done for be in vain?

I don’t have words to describe how much I love this book.  I can’t wait to see what all of you think as well.
