Resisting the Rookie~ Charleston Pirates by Jacob Chance

Title: Resisting the Rookie

Series: Charleston Pirates

Author: Jacob Chance

Genre: Sports Romance (can be read as standalone)

Trope: Enemies to Lovers

Release Date: December 16, 2022

Cover Design: Sybil Wilson/Popkitty Design

Bodhi Shine, my brother’s best friend, is the closest thing I have to an enemy. Tall, with irritatingly good looks, this cocky jerk has been a thorn in my backside for as long as I can remember.

We’re like oil and water—we just don’t mix.

I do my best to avoid him, but now that he’s the new running back for the Charleston Pirates and staying with my twin, that’s damn near impossible.

And when we find ourselves as guests at the same beach house, there’s no way to keep my distance. Forced to spend time together, it’s not long before our mutual attraction wins out over common sense.

Although I remind myself of all the reasons I should resist the rookie… making the wrong choice has never felt so right.


The last in the Charleston Pirates Series, but it is easily read as a standalone.
The blurb states enough to give an idea of who are featured , a sports romance, with the added ‘brother’s best friend’ concept.
Told in DUAL POV’s, it’s another well written, great attention to detail, slow burn story that I got fully invested in right from the start. I loved that the previous characters also appear, there is some hilarious banter back and forth, and a little bit of drama along the way, not only that but with the introduction of some new characters, it’s a hint as to what Jacob may have planned for future stories!
I won’t say any much more so not to spoil it!

High Impact by Freya Barker

Title: High Impact (High Mountain Trackers, #4) Author: Freya Barker Genre: Romantic Suspense Release Date: December 6, 2022 Cover Designer: Freya Barker Hosted by: Buoni Amici Press, LLC.

Manager for Hart’s Horse Rescue, Lucy Lenoir, finally feels she has a handle on life after having worked hard to leave her old one behind. So hard, there are times she almost forgets what she escaped. Memories which suddenly come flooding back when she catches a glimpse of a familiar horseman in town.

What’s worse, he’s in the company of the unlikely cowboy she’s only just beginning to trust.

High Mountain Tracker, Bo Rivera, tries hard never to repeat his mistakes. A huge one changed the course of his life and made him particularly cautious, especially around women. So much so, he almost passed up on the best thing to ever walk into his life; the compact, blonde ballbuster in need of a gentle hand.

However, the more he learns about her, the more he realizes a soft touch alone won’t keep her demons at bay. Those will need a firmer hand…to keep the gun steady.
