Two years. That’s the amount of time I’ve wasted lusting after Wyatt


He had me the moment he roared up on his bike and flashed his charismatic
smile my way. I wanted to jump on, wrap my arms around him, and ride off
into the sunset.


Then my brother introduced him as his friend and crushed my short lived
happily ever after.


To make matters worse, we work together at World Class Wrestling and our
storylines are intertwined. I have a strict rule I’ve always adhered to;
never mix business with pleasure.


But with each moment we spend together, avoiding that carefully drawn line
is becoming more difficult.


There’s an ongoing rumble between my heart and my head. Which one will win
out in the end?


*can be read as a standalone*



The blurb again gives enough away to the concept of the story,which is easily read as a Standalone,but for those of us who have read the previous book (Tussle) it is a great follow on.
I’m not going into any great detail as to all that happens with Ronnie and Wyatt,but I will say that again,I got invested right from the Prologue set 2 years where they first meet and there is an instant attraction which has to be ignored as Wyatt is the newbie to the World Class Wrestling, and friend to Jesse (Ronnie’s brother) so in her eyes totally ‘off limits’.
But moving on from then,that attraction slowly comes to the surface,with chemistry between them noticeable to the powers that be who instruct them to ‘play up the couple image’ for the fans,and yes the inevitable happens leading to some pretty HOT scenes.

Told in DUAL POV,the story is well written with the attention to detail the ‘sport elements’ as Jacob does with all his romances in this field,also adding in some humor,introductions to new characters that I hope we will see more of,and even cameo’s from The Boston Terrier’s which I thought was another nice touch,we also have a few things ‘Jacob’ that fans are used to reading in all his books-which always makes me chuckle at,adding to the enjoyment of reading his work.

Crazy,Stupid,Lazy,Cupid by Andie M.Long

Title: Crazy, Stupid, Lazy Cupid
Author: Andie M. Long
Genre: Paranormal romantic comedy
Cover Designer: Tammy Clarke at The Graphics Shed
Publication Date: February 14th, 2019
Cupid’s have targets other than hearts…
After cheating on her monthly figures, Samara finds herself sent back to Cupid training school by the big boss himself. If she’s to pass her probation, she’ll have to prove she is capable of creating genuine love matches.
But things don’t get off to a great start when she finds out that pets aren’t allowed in school. Difficult when your husband has been turned into a Whippet until you’ve proven yourself.
Someone should have known that the crazy, stupid, lazy, cupid would try to find a short cut. It’s a walk in the park to create new romances, and she can exercise Johnny at the same time.
But not everyone wants Samara to succeed. Someone is waiting to take the lead…
As the blurb states,this is the first book in a spin off from the successful Supernatural Dating Agency Series and it can be read as a Standalone,yet a fabulous continuation for those of us who have read all about the goings on in Withernsea (SDA).
I don’t need to say too much about the concept as again the blurb gives enough away,and it would be a spoiler to do so anyway!
What I will say is that it is a laugh  out loud,well written story,that has some surprising twists and turns along the way,featuring character’s old and new,with some added mystery,and an ‘OMG I DIDN’T SEE THAT COMING’ moment towards the end.
As a fan of the author,I absolutely loved this and I can’t wait to see what will happen next!!

“Okay so it’s time to introduce the person to your left. They should have told you enough about themselves right now.” Martine, the uber-happy, bouncy pony-tailed teacher instructed us.
I was not uber-happy, or bouncy. I was super pissed off.
“Samara, could you introduce the person to your left?”
Yeah, pick on me first why don’t you?
Sighing and blowing air above my top lip, I pointed to the woman next to me. “This is Janet.”
She shook her head. “No, no. Jeanette.”
I rolled my eyes. “This is Jeanette. She’s been sent back to Cupid classes because she did something dumb.” I didn’t know what it was but if she hadn’t she wouldn’t be here.
“Well, let’s not use the word ‘dumb’ shall we. Jeanette just-”
“Fucked up?” I stated trying to be helpful.
“Let’s move along. Max, could you please introduce Samara?”
Max beamed like the goody-goody twat he was. From now on I was calling him Vax, due to his sucking skills and being full of crap.
“Samara is here because she set up Taylor Swift with Tom Hiddleston and we all know what a car crash that turned out to be.” He elbowed me. “I knew that wasn’t real. Did you give him the t-shirt? It looked like it could fit you?”
Martine’s face clouded over. Yeah she wasn’t so happy now was she?
“Samara did not set up Tom and Taylor. That is an outright lie.”
I folded my arms over my chest. “Well someone must have done it. Seriously ruined Tom for a lot of women she did.”
Martine stomped out of the carefully constructed circle of chairs she’d made us put together and grabbed a thick file from her table. Then she stomped back in.
“Here we go. Samara Leighton. Reasons for being back at Cupid Inc. Training Headquarters.
Samara’s behaviour towards her local colleagues resulted in one colleague being ridiculed and having to seek counselling. I quote. ‘What kind of person draws attention to an unfortunate mishap of another? Samara is crazy’.”
“Crazy is not waxing your vagina and then sitting with your legs apart in a spa.” I informed everyone.
“Samara engineered a speed dating event prior to the opening of the dating agency in Withernsea and we believe saw a man she liked there herself. She then ‘accidentally’ turned up on his date. This man is now her husband. Now, fortunately the date she ruined wasn’t fated anyway, but what she did that day was stupid.”
“We’re madly in love. The best match ever.” I looked at the other faces sat around. “Well we were. Now my husband is in kennels. KENNELS. They turned him into a dog.”
Martine carried on. “Samara’s monthly inputted figures included those pairings from Withernsea Dating Agency, run by Shelley Landry, with no actual input from Samara at all.
“It says pairings for the month. It doesn’t specifically say my pairings. That’s on Cupid Inc. They should be more specific.” I complained.
“It’s lazy, Samara.”
“So I’m Samara. I’m crazy, stupid, and lazy. That’s how you need to announce me to all the others, Vax.”
“What-ev-er. My introduction is complete.”


New Release~ Healing Him by Laura N. Andrews


Title: Healing Him
Series: Bromley Brothers, Book 2
Genre: Gay Romance
Release Date: February 16, 2019
Cover Designer: Claire Smith
 Add to TBR
 On sale for half price! 

Henry Bromley wants to find not only the perfect submissive, but he’s also searching for love. When he meets Ryan Scott, a man who seems to take control, Henry is conflicted.
However, when passion and lust ignite a spark and their flame is lit, Henry discovers there’s no turning back. He wants Ryan.
Ryan Scott has fought hard to protect himself and his desires. With his wounds freshly opened, Ryan has to make a choice: submit to Henry and allow himself to heal or continue to live the lie he’s created for himself.
Will this Dom help his sub fly? And if trust is broken, can it truly ever be healed?
The book blurb gives enough away as to who this book is about,and the concept.It is easily read as a Standalone,but as I’ve read the first book (Trusting Him) it made following the story just as easy,with a slight crossover on the end of that-and the start of this story.
Henry Bromley has kept his ‘Dom’ side hidden from his brothers (Trey and Travis) having had a successful contract with his submissive-Sean (but something is missing-he’s seen how happy Trey is and questions what he actually wants for his future)
On ending things with Sean-amicably,he encounters Ryan (his soon to be brother in law David’s best friend) and there is an instant attraction.(the crossover from bk1)
Both Henry and Ryan share a hot an heavy moment…but Ryan has got out of a bad situation/relationship and is not looking for anything serious.However,eventually they become more,and Henry feels Ryan has been hurt in the past,and it’s reason behind his trust issues regarding a Dom/Sub relationship.
Henry has his own issues surrounding his past/and how he likes to conduct his lifestyle,but as the story develops both men grow closer.(some pretty HOT scenes!)

I did enjoy this story,I liked how the character’s were together,and the link to the previous book-with cameos the brother’s/David,yet there are new character(s) introduced that I can only assume will feature in the next in the series (Travis’s story) There was also an added twist that I didn’t expect.I did miss a DUAL POV (much like I said about Trusting Him) however that is just my own thoughts on that.I hope to see more of them in the next one.

 On sale for half price!

New Release~ Love Doctor by Logan Chance

From Top 20 Amazon Bestselling Author Logan Chance comes a funny,
laugh-out-loud, witty romantic comedy that will heat up your kindles.

Check out this boss/employee sizzling romance today for only #99cents or
#FREE with #KindleUnlimited



I just published my first novel: Love Doctor. There’s one small
problem—besides the fact it isn’t selling—my boss from Hell, Dr. Declan
Sincock, Sex Therapist, was my muse. Let’s just say, I took some creative
liberties with him…

I never thought he’d know about it.

And never in a million years did I think he’d read it.

But he has, and he’s not happy.

I should just quit, find a new job, but now I have another plan. Write what
you know, right? Dr. Sincock is going to educate me on how to write hotter
sex. He just doesn’t know it yet.




When I started reading this story,I knew I’d give it a full 5* rating…a much anticipated release and for me so worth the wait!
Reading the blurb you get the general idea-but really it’s more than what is given away,but I’m not going to go into any great detail as to everything,but what I will say is that right from the beginning I laughed out loud throughout,and couldn’t put it down until I finished it! Told in DUAL POV‘s,easily read as a Standalone,but an added bonus with the link to previous books.

Declan who we have met before-he’s Chelsea’s brother-in turn Best Friend’s with Jonah (Playboy) and his PA Rose Thorne are a great couple of character’s,and I really enjoyed their interactions,there is a gradual build up before lines are blurred,and ethics go right out the window (Holy **** there is a lot of chemistry/heat between them)Booker,Ethan and their significant other’s feature (Heartbreaker/Stuck) which was another plus point yet alongside that are some clever twists and surprises thrown in as with certain quirky ‘Loganisms’ that fans/followers of his will totally get and get a kick out of.

All in all,Logan has written a brilliant story that is funny throughout,H.O.T. with character’s old and new,some drama added along the way to a HEA….I LOVED IT!!

Score (Boston Terriers#6) by Jacob Chance




Title: SCORE

Series: Boston Terriers #6

Author: Jacob Chance

Genre: Sports Romance

Release Date: February 8, 2018


Add to Goodreads








.99 for a Limited Time ONLY


#Free with #KindleUnlimited




I have a crush on Nolan Archer, Boston University’s freshman running back.
He’s the definition of tall, dark, and swoon worthy. My knees weaken every
time our eyes meet. There’s only one problem… he’s a virgin.


As much as I try to convince myself he’s too young for me, or that I prefer
experienced guys, I can’t deny the flames of attraction flaring between us.


When his fraternity brothers decide to auction off his virginity, it forces
me to make a decision.

Should I forget about Nolan once and for all, or place the winning bid and
be his first score?


*can be read as a standalone*



Once again,Jacob has created a story that while easily read as a Standalone,it is a great addition to the series.
I’m not going to go into much detail as to all that happens-you can see from the blurb the initial concept,and to say much more would give too much away and it’s best to just read for yourselves. What I will say is that I loved how Nolan and Perri were together,their relationship gradually builds,the attraction they both feel from the start working it’s way to becoming more. As with the previous books,there is also lots of humor -particularly surrounding the side character’s (Clancy,Flynn etc) and the introduction of Nolan’s younger brother Donovan,who I don’t think we will have seen the last of (hopefully).
Told in DUAL POV’s,SCORE is another well written story,with likable characters,a good blend of game details,humor,some twists along the way,and quirky details that followers of Jacob will fully appreciate,adding to a series that I,for one will read again and again,and I look forward to seeing what will be next!

New Release~ Surrender by S.E. Cooper

Title: Surrender
Series: The Hunter Series Book 3
Author: S.E. Cooper
Genre: Romance
Release Date: January 31, 2019


“You think I’m too hot to handle, don’t you, Freckles?”

“Maybe a little.”
“A little my ass,” he grinned, “Baby, you can’t breathe when I’m near you.”
Never in her wildest dreams did Sloane Bailey think Kerr Hunter would look her way. Now he’s offering himself to her in the only way he knows. It’s a hell of an offer for the reticent redhead who fell in love at first sight. She knows from the very beginning she’s in over her head, but she has neither the strength nor the inclination to deny him.
Kerr thinks his infatuation with Sloane is under control. He’s about to discover, when it comes to affairs of the heart, resisting the inevitable is a futile endeavor. However, he still has no intention of surrendering his tortured soul. When his painful past and perilous present collide, Kerr finds himself fighting for more than just his heart. Lives are at stake. He failed once before. He has no intention of letting it happen again. However, with his mind clouded by revenge and fear overshadowing his judgment, can Kerr unravel the tangled network of corruption before it’s too late?

As with the previous two books in this series,I’ve had the privilege being a BETA reader,and once again I’ve been totally blown away by the sheer quality of SE’s work.
This can be read as a Standalone,yet it is a worthy continuation of the series.
Right from the Prologue I got fully invested in the story,and without giving too much away as to all that happens,it moved along at a steady enough pace,told in DUAL POV’s,with enough humor included along the way that it had me laughing out loud at a few parts,the banter between Kerr and his Family,and Sloane herself flowed well,and was a good mix with the added intrigue and surprises that I didn’t see coming.There was some heart-stopping moments that made me get a bit emotional,and of course some heat that resulted in the chemistry between both Kerr and Sloane,that wasn’t the usual quick to happen.(I have to say that although I’ve laid claim to the previous book’s lead man ‘Big’…after this he will now have to share that No.1 place with Kerr Hunter!! #OhHelloKerr #MrHeLikesToPlayAlphaHotness)
We also got new character’s introduced,as well as appearances from one’s seen previously,who could be possible future works? (no pressure there SE Cooper!) and an Epilogue that made me smile.

All in all,I absolutely loved this story,couldn’t put it down…and can’t wait to see what will be next!

“I should never have come here, not like this,” he admitted. “It was wrong of me.”

My eyes glistened with tears. “You think what we just did was wrong?”
He looked mortified. “Hell, no.”
“Then what do you mean?”
He stopped cleaning me and settled himself back on the edge of the tub.
“I wasn’t in a good place. I’d been drinking. What happened between us shouldn’t have happened. Not under those circumstances.”
“Is that…how you always like sex?” I asked, something that had been on my mind ever since he tied my hands.
Kerr grinned. “Sometimes I like to play.”
“Sex is different every time,” he said gently. “Sometimes, it’s hard. Sometimes, it’s soft”
“Like Tahoe,” I murmured.
Kerr smiled. “Yes, like Tahoe. And sometimes I like to play.”
“So we were just playing?”
“Yes,” he replied, swirling his finger in the water close to my thigh. “It’s not something I expected to do with you this quickly, but I tend to lose control whenever I’m around you. It’s a bad habit of mine.”
I smiled.
I liked the idea I could make him lose control.
“You liked it.”
“Is that a bad thing?”
Kerr shook his head. “Never, you say the word and we can play anytime you want.”
“What word should I use?” I asked, sitting up a little in the water.
Kerr started to laugh, proper belly rumbling laughter. Then he leaned forward and planted a quick hard kiss on my forehead.
“Why are you laughing?” I scrunched up my nose. “What’s so funny?”
As entertaining as his laughter was, I refused to join in when it was at my expense.
“You are fucking amazing; do you know that?”
“I don’t understand why you’re laughing.”
“Freckles, most people choose a word for when they want to stop. You want to choose one for starting.”
“Well, choose one then.”
“No.” I covered my eyes in horror.
“Sloane.” His tone changed back to commanding. “Choose a word for when you want to play, and I’ll make it happen.”
“You’re serious?”
I sighed, knowing there was no way I was getting out of this. “Okay then…Scarlett.”
Kerr nodded his approval. “The color of your hair.”
“No.” I flicked some bubbles at him. “The color of my ass when you spanked it.”
Kerr chuckled, “Scarlett it is.”
