Hard Luck is part of the Trophy Boyfriend series and involves a teammate crossing that teammate/sister boundary.
Mateo has been captivated by his teammates sister for a long time, and after one night with her, he can’t forget her. True is not having much luck in the dating department and thought one night wouldn’t hurt anything. Now she now has no place to live and on top of that it gets worse when she finds out she is preggers.
I loved these two characters together. True is trying to work out her emotions of how she will proceed now that in nine months she will be adding to her family. She has that emotional struggle and it had me kind of feeling for Mateo. He is all about family since he comes from a big family. I love that the two come together and their relationship and friendship grows.True has two brothers that are real entertainment and they alone will have you in stitches. It is not a instalove and I was glad for that. I love the banter with Mateo being crazy and overbearing at times and his Spanish family that just kept the story funny and light. I love these Trophy Boyfriends series so much!
The Devil in Her Bed is the final book in the stunning Devil You Know trilogy by USA Today bestselling author Kerrigan Byrne!
He lives in secret service to the Crown—a man of duty, deception, and an undeniable attraction to a woman who threatens to tear his whole world apart.
They call him the Devil of Dorset. He stands alone, a man of undeniable power. Moving in and out of shadows, back alleys and ballrooms, he is unstoppable and one of the Crown’s most dangerous weapons. However, when he sets his sights on the undeniably beautiful Countess of Mont Claire, Francesca Cavendish, he doesn’t realize that he has met a match like no other.
TRUE LOVE WEARS NO DISGUISE
Francesca is a countess by day and stalks her prey—those responsible for the death of her family—by night. What she does not expect is to be thrown into the path of the devil himself, the Earl of Devlin. She has secrets of her own and he seems determined to lay them bare. Can her heart survive finding the love of her life and losing him when all is revealed?
SUCH A GOOD BOOK!
Who doesn’t a love story of long lost childhood friends who are reunited after years apart? Throw in a few lies, some revenge, the murder of almost an entire family, and a sexy spy and you have a book I couldn’t put down. Kerrigan Byrne has a knack for writing stories about long lost soul-mates who seem to come back from the dead just to get their HEA and no lie…..I am a big fan. Like, these are the types of soul-deep connections and end all be all romances are what my wildest dreams are made of and I CANNOT GET ENOUGH.
Francesca Cavendish, Countess of Monte Claire will stop at nothing to avenge the murders of those she loved the most as a child. She has spent every day since she witnessed their deaths training and honing the skills she needs to insure her success and every night sacrificing her reputation to get the information that will finally lead her to whoever ordered the hit on her family. What does her reputation matter when the only boy she ever loved is dead? Besides, she doesn’t care what anyone thinks about her anyways, she has the love of her fellow Red Rouges, and they know the truth, and that along with her revenge is all that matters, right? Of course! Or so she thought…
Chandler, the Devil of Dorset, is one of the Crown’s most powerful spies. He is very good at what he does. So much so that people who have known him since he was a child don’t even recognize him when he dons one of his many disguises and assumes one of his various aliases. With no history, no close friends, and no family to trace he is untouchable. His weakness is he has no weakness. Or so he thought is until his latest mission brought him face to face with an obsession he just can’t shake.
This book was dark, exciting, and sexy, and made me swoon. I couldn’t put it down.

About the author:
Alley Ciz is an indie author of Contemporary/New Adult, Rom-Com, Sports Romances.
She’s a stay at home mom to 3 amazing and crazy mini royals, a 95lb lab, and let’s face it on some days her hubby is her 4th kid… But to be fair she totally loves him a lot.
When she’s not corralling her crazy mini royals she can be found writing the stories the voices in her head tell her. Caffeine is a staple in her daily diet since she does most of her writing late at night when the rest of her house is asleep, usually with her trusty dog Buke (short for Beukeboom reluctantly named after a NY Ranger even though she’s a NJ Devils fan all the way. Is it any surprise she writes sports romances?
Pizza and mac-n-cheese are major food groups and she is a proud Potterhead and superhero buff.
She is a complete romance junkie and can always be found reading or listening to a book.
This is a new author to me but I figured ok rockstar and MM I will give it a go. I love the cover so that was a plus and the blurb hooked me a bit more. So now moving along to starting the book. I really enjoyed her writing style. This was a winner for me. First you have Jamie , the rockstar, who is famous and a huge sex symbol to the world but has a huge secret about his sexual orientation. Then there is out and proud Sammy who is smooth and funny and just gives you the cool guy vibe. I love the story of Jamie emotions and his struggles of being gay but having to have that image that you feel you have to portray yourself as. Their connection was sweet and heartwarming. This was a home run for me. There was never a dull moment and I loved the friend group. I love it when a author creates a environment in the book and you just wish that it was real and happening now so I can go chill and play Mario Kart too! Lol overall win from cover to end for me.
What is a Victorian lady’s formula for love? Mix one brilliant noblewoman and her enigmatic protection officer. Add in a measure of danger and attraction. Heat over the warmth of humor and friendship, and the result is more than simple chemistry–it’s elemental.
Lady Violet is keeping secrets. First, she founded a clandestine sanctuary for England’s most brilliant female scientists. Second, she is using her genius on a confidential mission for the Crown. But the biggest secret of all? Her feelings for protection officer Arthur Kneland.
Solitary and reserved, Arthur learned the hard way to put duty first. But the more time he spends in the company of Violet and the eccentric club members, the more his best intentions go up in flames. Literally.
When a shadowy threat infiltrates Violet’s laboratories, endangering her life and her work, scientist and bodyguard will find all their theories put to the test–and learn that the most important discoveries are those of the heart.
Ok Besties, it is my pleasure to introduce you to break out author Elizabeth Everett. In this her first book we get to see her attention to detail in both building a multitude of characters but in the intricate ways they all interact with one another, and how each interaction is worked into the story line in ways that allow you grow to know the hero and heroine individually outside of their interactions. It was a unique experience and I really enjoyed it. I also was surprised that although this heroine is literally a damsel in distress, who our hero has been hired to safeguard, and not my typical cup of- sassy, independent, knows what she wants, bada$$ heroine- tea, I found myself championing her success and loving her all the same. What she lacks in self-confidence, poise, and cunning she makes up for in determination, goodwill, and intelligence and seriously those things combined give her a different kind of strength. A kind of quiet strength that I think the world needs to recognize more of, so bravo to this author for spotlighting it! This isn’t your typical historical romance in that the setting is a secret society for lady scientists and really, that alone was half of the fun of the book, you never knew when something would randomly explode or crawl out from under the door. Of course the other half of the excitement that makes this book such an enjoyable read is the romance that we see bloom between our damsel and her guardian. Watching as both characters discover their self-worth through their reflection in the other’s eyes and witnessing the amount of personal growth and discovery the connection between them allows warms my heart and brings a smile to my face every time I think about it. Lady Violet Greycliff and Authur Kneland perfect for each other and I am glad they get their HEA.
So with all that in mind I think it is safe to safe that I really liked this book, I am excited to see where this author’s career will take us, and I can’t wait to see what all of you think as well.
As owner of the most scandalous club in London, the last thing the notorious Marquess of Roth wants is a wife. Keeping up his false reputation as a rake brings in the clients with the deepest pockets—money he needs to fund a noble cause. Even though everything inside tells him not to leave his beautiful, innocent wife behind at his country estate…he must.
But three years later, tired of her scoundrel of a husband headlining the gossip rags, Lady Isobel Vance decides enough is enough. She is no longer a fragile kitten, but as the anonymous author of a women’s sexual advice column, she’s now a roaring tigress…and she can use her claws.
Isobel decides to go to him in London, channeling her powers of seduction to make him beg to take her back. But she didn’t expect her marauding marquess to be equally hard to resist. Now the game is on to see who will give in to the other first, with both sides determined like hell to win.
Each book in the Regency Rogues series is STANDALONE: * The Beast of Beswick * The Rakehell of Roth
All right, all right, all right!!! Before you start book number 2 of Amalie Howard’s, The Regency Rogues series you’re going to need a gallon of water close by. This book is so steamy it should come with a Surgeon General’s Warning for dehydration. For real y’all! You know I normally try not to dwell on the physically intimate parts of the story when I review a book, but when those moments are THIS DANG HOT, I would be doing both you and the author a grave in justice by leaving it out of this review. In this regard, this heroine is my absolute hero! As I am sure you can all guess by now, I am the (self-proclaimed) President of the Amalie Howard, Bada$$ Heroines Fan Club (not that such a fan club is really a thing, but it totally should be and I nominate myself as President ;D ), that means that not only am I super greedy to get my hands on her books but that I also have super high expectations for her heroines. No meek, biddable, wallflowers allowed! So going into this book I will admit, I was slightly worried about how I would feel toward this leading lady after meeting her in The Beast of Beswick. I should have known better than to worry though, because while she starts out as the quiet, complacent, biddable wife once she reached her limit and made up her mind to fight for what she wants, in true Amalie Howard Bada$$ Heroine form she is a force to be reckoned with. Lady Isobel Vance couldn’t help but be smitten with her extremely handsome new husband, especially since her marriage to him had saved her from claws of the disgusting and disgraceful Earl of Beaumont. After their wedding, on their journey to his country home she couldn’t wait to take her place by his side as the Marchioness of Roth. How was she to know that he would leave her there, alone, in the country, for three years, while he ran around London causing all manner of scandals? Well, this “country mouse” has had enough! Armed with the theoretical education she received from the infamous Lady Darcy, a crazy plan, the support of her best friends and her Father In-Law she charms all of London, determined to bring her rakehell husband to heel. Will she unleash the tigress within and win his heart in spite of his determination to push her away or will she be forced to admit defeat and return to her quiet country life? Winter Vance, Marquess of Roth, does not want to be married, especially since that is exactly what his father the Duke of Kendrick wants. Matter of fact, if it wasn’t for the codicil holding hostage of the rest of his inheritance unless he gets married before he turns 21, he would never get married. He refuses to succumb to love and the fate that befell his beloved mother and sister. So while he would concede to the codicil he wouldn’t let a wife, no matter how attractive she was, get in the way of his notorious life. Thinking he had settled the matter by agreeing to marry the “quiet” and “dutiful” younger sister of the Duchess of Beswick and abandoning her at his father’s estate far from London, the last thing he expected was for his “country mouse” wife to show up three years later and take the London social season by storm. Will he be able to maintain the walls he has built around his heart or will her newly sharpened claws tear them down and leave him begging for more? Obviously I loved this book and hope you do too and although I understand why you may feel the need, please do not call 9-1-1 when this book sets you on fire.
After escaping her birth pack, being kidnapped, and nearly dying on the mountain, Skye has found a home in Blackwater. Surrounded by friends and family, and her mate, she’s ready for her final semester at Granite Peak Academy to be a lot quieter, and a lot more uneventful, than last year.
…this is now
When shifters from the academy are taken, Skye and her pack are forced to return to Blackwater. With the Spring Summit looming, Skye will finally have to face the demons of her past if she wants to have a life with Remy.
Things aren’t what they seem
Skye is done running and ready to fight for her future. She’ll do whatever it takes to protect the ones she loves … even if the threat is from someone she trusts.
PREY is the second book in the Blackwater Pack series, and should be read in order:
#1: SANCTUM #1.5: BROKEN
It contains scenes and themes not suitable for younger readers, including bullying, abuse, and sexual themes/scenes. Recommended age: 17+
This is probably my fav book(so far) from this series and I’m so excited everyone else gets to enjoy it as much as me!
Prey Picks up a few weeks after where Sanctum left off and a few weeks where the companion novella Broken left off as well and Skye has finally started to settle into her new life with friends, new family and her mate, Remy. Everything is perfect, the gang is back at GPA the sun is shinning, she’s in love and experiencing things she never though she would….. until female shifters start disappearing and the school is forced to take drastic measures. Skye has to face past horrors and people whom she never though she’d have to see again and her will and her mates is tested and stretched.
I loved this book simply because we see Skye really come into her own at this point, with herself, her feelings, and her role as Remy’s mate. Hannah did a superb job at the range of emotions that flew off the page from, elation, to excitement to heartbreak, to fear, to love. Skye’s journey in this book is a hard one and at time super emotional and the story made me cry but then in the next chapter also made me smile and laugh. By the end of the book I was defiantly left with a super O face of shock(😮)and immediately needed more. All those markers I have for a great book/story/world were awesomely checked off with Prey!
Intriguing plot✔️ Relatable Characters(even down to the side characters)✔️ Humor✔️ emotion so real I needed a chapter break✔️ Steamy sexy times✔️✔️✔️✔️ Thirst for more✔️✔️✔️✔️✔️✔️
I’m am HERE for the conclusion of this amazing world in the final book!!
Hannah McBride has been many things in her life – a manager, a clinical research coordinator, a dreamer, a makeup brand ambassador, an event coordinator, a blogger, and more. But at heart, she’s always been a writer, and in 2020 she decided to make it official with her first release, SANCTUM.
That’s what I lost before I realized nothing good comes from dating my co-workers.
Usually, I don’t have much self-control. So, the fact that Frankie Grant is a hot, talented tattoo artist means it’s a damn miracle she hasn’t already been in my bed. But nothing can happen between us because Frankie comes with Jolie, her young daughter, and a crap load of baggage from her ex. And those are two things I never entertain.
Anyone who knows me—the screwed up foster kid from the wrong side of the tracks—knows I’m not the guy you take home to meet your parents, let alone your kid. But I also know what it’s like not to have parents, so things get complicated when Jolie asks me to be her daddy.
This is sadly the last book in this series and I can say Piper Rayne killed it AGAIN! This is a co worker/somewhat enemies to lovers/ friends to lovers trope that delivers on all levels. We met Jax who is the bad boy foster kid that has his heart on lockdown. Love and leave them is his style and does not want any commitment. Frankie is his co worker who is a single mom of a cute 5 year old and recently left a bad relationship from her ex who is a addict. Frankie and Jax have that love hate banter back and forth and love to get their digs in. Hence the bet of Jax being Mr Celibate and things really start to heat up. When I tell you the tension is so thick between these two but seeing how Jax is with Jolie (Frankie’s daughter) and it will melt your heart and make those ovaries burst! I love it when these bad boys fall hard! One great thing about this author is that they truly create a world that you want to be a part of. The friends are funny and great personalities and the stories that flow so fluently is so refreshing. You always hate to say goodbye to a series but seeing the characters for the next series is exciting. They give you a taste that will leave you craving for more!!

Bow Street agent Sebastien Wolff, Earl of Mowbray, doesn’t believe in love—until a passionate kiss with a beautiful stranger in a brothel forces him to reconsider. When the mysterious woman is linked to an intrigue involving a missing Russian princess, however, Seb realizes her air of innocence was too good to be true.
Princess Anastasia Denisova has been hiding in London as plain ‘Anna Brown’. With a dangerous traitor hot on her trail, her best option is to accept Wolff’s offer of protection—and accommodation—at his gambling hell. But living in such close quarters, and aiding Wolff in his Bow Street cases, fans the flames of their mutual attraction. If Anya’s true identity is revealed, does their romance stand a chance? Could a princess ever marry a rogue?
This is the first book by this author that I have had the pleasure to read and review for all of you. I must tell you how delighted I am that even though this book is part of a series it 100% reads like a stand-alone. So much so that I didn’t realize it was part of a series until I looked at the cover page to make sure I spelled the author’s name correctly while writing this review. That being said I am really hopeful that we will get to share more of not only this series but this author with each other. Because this is one of those books where you fall in love with the heroine’s tenacity and will to survive on the first page, then find yourself sucking in your breath in anticipation of the perils she faces, knowing full well she is amazing and will doubtlessly pull through unscathed. This book has it all: a notorious and handsome rogue, a brothel, faithful friends, a terrible villain, suspense, and above all things true love that conquers even the most cynical of hearts. With that being said; I adored these characters, loved the way the author wrote their story, and from start to finish enjoyed this book immensely.
After the death of her brother, Russian, Princess Anastasia “Anya” Denisova found herself stranded in Paris and resorting to desperate measures to keep from being forced into a marriage with the abusive traitor, Count Vasili Petrov. After faking her own suicide and fleeing to England we find Anya living in Covent Garden, next to Mrs. Haye’s brothel and working as a part time companion to the Dowager Duchess of Winwick. Doing her best to maintain her new identity becomes impossible when Count Petrov not only comes to London circulating a story that he is looking for his lost fiancé but is spotted leaving Mrs. Haye’s. With help of her employer, who has become a dear friend and only one of two people in her new life who knows her true identity, she must go into hiding. It is decided, after a failed kidnapping attempt was made on her, that the safest place for her to lay low until Petrov returns to Russia is in the private residence rooms of Tricorn Club, under the protection of the Duchess’ nephew. Should she trust him with her true identity? Will he be able to keep her safe?
Sebastian Wolff, Earl of Mowbray, notorious rogue by night, partial Tricorn Club owner and Bow Street investigator by day, has been given an assignment; to investigate the possibility of a Russian spy who was giving information to Napoleon. Dedicated to his pursuit of the truth and his bachelor life he has no time for or belief in the idea of love, that is until a onetime meeting with a mysterious woman in a brothel who plagues his thoughts and dreams. Never thinking he would cross paths with her again she was the last person he expected to see when he set out to protect his great aunt while she traveled to their country home. After rescuing her from an attempting kidnapping and at his great aunts most ardent request, he takes on the task of protecting and hiding her from those who wish her ill. He knows she is hiding something from him and possibly his great aunt and while she is living under his roof he is determined to find out what it is. Conveniently, as he works to uncover her secrets he finds that not only is she beautiful, well mannered, and enchanting, but that she may just be his best lead in the investigation of the Russian spy. Will he uncover her secrets and what will he do with them if he does?
I really enjoyed this book and am excited to read more from this author and this series. Let me know what you think.
This is a sports college romance. This is like a enemies to lover trope I would say. Demi is the daughter to the football coach and she has always thought that Rowan was a womanizer and cocky. Rowan is the star Football player and has been around Demi every Wednesday for her family weekly dinner with his coach. The attraction and tension is there and intensified when the coach asks for Demi to tutor Rowan. Once the secret is out Demi starts to see Rowan differently and it becomes a different ball game. Rowan is sweet and sexy and Demi can stand her ground. It was a nice story but I felt that Demi could have been a little more aware of the feelings for Rowan and felt Rowan could have pursued her more. All in all it was a new author to me and I would not be opposed to reading other books from the author.
