Synopsis

 

When the dean of students asked me for a favor, I had no idea it would mean
tutoring Owen Dawson.

 

Me, forced to spend time with Boston University’s notorious quarterback?

 

With his dark hair, chiseled body, and a promising future playing in the
NFL, every guy on campus wants to be him. Every girl wants to be under him.

 

Every girl, except me.

 

But when we work closely together, I realize how much I enjoy his quick wit
and easy sense of humor. And resisting his glowing smile and smoldering
green eyes is a lot harder than I imagined.

 

How do I keep the irresistible jock from slipping past my defenses and into
my heart?

 

*can be read as a standalone*

RHR RATING 5*/5

What to say without giving too much away?
I’m not going to really as it would spoil it,but once again Jacob has created a fantastic story that although is a standalone,it is a great continuation of the series. I loved how the story developed,there is humor,surprising twists,and a good mix of game details,alongside previous character’s appearing.I think this is the best one to date..especially with the Epilogue(s) !
Looking forward to the next in the series.

Fumbled Love Release Blitz

 

 

Title: Fumbled Love
Author: Lila Rose
Genre: Romantic Comedy
Release Date: December 4, 2018

 

Blurb

 

The one day
English teacher Reagan Wild is late for work—and looks like she dressed herself
in the dark—she remembers Carter Anthony, a well-known football star, is coming
to the school to deliver a talk to her overexcited students.
While
Reagan knows Carter from her high school days, since he was her past crush, she
wasn’t ready to see him again. At the time, she hated being invisible. But
right now, she wished she could simply disappear.
Carter
Anthony is keen to give back to his hometown, but what he doesn’t expect is
getting something in return. When a chance encounter with Reagan, the shy girl
from his past, happens, he knows instinctively this woman is supposed to be in
his life.
With an
embarrassing ability to blurt out whatever’s on her mind, Reagan doesn’t understand
Carter’s attention. She has no doubt, though, he’ll soon realize his mistake
when he discovers just how crazy she and her family are. But no matter what he
sees, what he hears, or how her looney family behaves, he doesn’t run. In fact,
Carter’s family seem just as unique as hers.
Through dog
poop, naked yoga, and the paparazzi’s, can Carter and Reagan have any hope in
love, even when it’s fumbled?

RHR RATING 5*/5
A new to me Author,and a ‘second chance’ Rom com story that had me laughing out loud right from the start!
The blurb gives away enough of the concept to the story,so I don’t feel the need to go into great detail,but what I will say is it’s in DUAL POV’s, with great characters,in not only the leads,the side characters are an added bonus,with the potential for more -which I hope there will be,especially Brooke (Reagan’s best friend) and Dustin (Carter’s team mate).
Alongside the hilarious moments,it’s a slow burn to the hotness and I really enjoyed reading and couldn’t put it down.

Alex-Zander Metcalf knew his life would always be filled with twists and turns, especially living in the public eye while playing the role of front man for his band Ivory Tower. That’s what made life interesting and he loved every aspect about his job in the music world.

Living in a long-term polyamorous relationship with a husband and a wife also created a fair amount of ups and downs. Add two rambunctious daughters to the house and you had a sweet cocktail of chaos and pure joy and the unexpected awaiting him every day. His life was overflowing, but he wouldn’t have changed a thing, because it was damn near perfect.

He knew nothing in life was guaranteed and never to take things for granted, but that didn’t have him anymore prepared for what he was facing now. With his life completely upside down, Alex wasn’t sure how he’d ever be able to move forward. But life as he knew it was gone, and it was up to him to dig deep and find a way through the fog with the only remaining “constant” in his life: Chase.

How do you find a new path when you feel so lost you can’t see the road ahead of you through the unrelenting darkness? Where do you even begin such a journey, when the landscape is so vastly different from what was once familiar, and the resentment you have for needing to start over tastes like acrid bitterness on your tongue?

Alex must find the strength to push on and find a way to reinvent himself and all the relationships in his life, but creating this new version of himself won’t come easy.

Alex is Rocking more Chase’s world. Check out what Amazon readers have to say.

RHR RATING 5*/5

I’ve read this series,and loved them all…in fact I did a re-read in preparation for this release,as it had been a while since I’d read them-and to be honest,Danni wasn’t one of my favorite characters(I’d forgotten how she came across in bk 2 Take What You Want) So on reading the blurb for Reinventing Us…I figured that something major would have happened to her-she wouldn’t have just left or cheated on either one of them…and in the Prologue,I didn’t expect it to go like it did!
From then it is a journey of grief,suffering,insecurities and feeling of failure that we see Alex gradually spiraling ,which has an effect on him, Chase,their daughter’s,and fellow band members.
However,Chase is not giving up on his love for Alex,and neither are the guys from both bands.That was another thing about this book that I loved – the inclusion of all the guys,even with the emotional side,there was some humor added,and of course,when Alex and Chase re-connect on an intimate level,it is H.O.T (Ann does write M/M particularly well),and with a couple of new characters introduced,this is not the last we’ll see of these guys,and I’m excited to see what/who’s next.

RHR Rating 5*/5

This is another very enjoyable story,which can easily be read as a Standalone,but for those of us who have read the previous books in this series,it is yet again,another welcome addition.
The book blurb gives enough away,so I won’t go into much detail as to all that happens,so not to spoil things,but I will say that (not to take anything away from his other works) Jacob writes the ‘sports romance’ very well-there is a good balance of the game details(I’m not a follower of sports but I do like reading in this genre)along with the rest of the story,that the reader is fully engaged from start to finish.
I loved that their journey to a HEA wasn’t just a quick,hot tale…Grace doesn’t fall for Trevor right away,and there are some funny interactions between them,leading up to the inevitable.Both of them do have issues,and of course there is some drama/angst along the way.Another plus point for me,was the recurring characters having some involvement in the story ,along with the introduction of new ones (meaning more to come-no pressure Jacob!)
All in all,with DUAL POV’s,a well written,and thought out addition to this series,and I can’t wait to see what/who’s next!

ITS IN HIS HEART PRIME READING.jpg

She has a secret. He has a scandal. And they both have an attraction they can’t deny.

Ella Dennings is furious. Soaking wet, muddy, and furious. All she wants is to enjoy a quiet summer retreat in her Red River Valley cabin. Maybe she can finish healing after the death of her husband, Bradley. Maybe she can even finish writing that third book in her anonymously written bestselling series. But when she arrives at the cabin in a raging rainstorm, who does she find holed up there but Cooper Wells, Bradley’s sexy best friend—a man capable of seducing women within seconds—and a man Ella has never liked.

Coop’s got his own baggage. He’s engulfed in a nasty legal battle, and after selling his home to cover his legal fees, he’s got nowhere to go but the cabin. He and Ella will just have to coexist under one roof…but is their heated animosity boiling over into attraction? And when Ella’s racy new book rocks the sleepy town, will her secret identity spell scandal for both of them?

Take Cooper into your heart.

Synopsis

 

“Are you looking for the cheerleading tryouts, sweetheart?”

 

Zeke Kingston is the arrogant, tattooed, and sinful coach of Boston
University’s women’s football team. And I’m their new quarterback.

 

From the moment the dark and broody hunk mistook me for a cheerleader we’ve
clashed. His smirking lips make my blood boil and his god-like muscles turn
my knees weak.

 

Everything about us is off limits, but lines are blurring and temptations
have become too hard to resist.

 

Being together breaks all the rules, but what happens when the rules no
longer matter?

MyBannerMaker_Banner(1)
RHR RATING 5*/5

The book blurb gives enough away so I won’t go into great detail but what I will say is that I really enjoyed this story,with it’s DUAL POV’s, it is another well written,with great character’s,some of whom we have previously met in the first two books in the ‘Boston Terriers’ Series-another nice touch to the storytelling,yet it is easily read as a Standalone.

I laughed out loud not only with the banter back and forth between Zeke and Amelia,but Owen and Trevor also provide humor,and I hope they will feature in books of their own!
Of course,the attraction of the leads is obvious so you can guess the inevitable will happen.

As with many of Jacob’s creations,there is a little twist adding some drama along the way and some quirky references that those of us who follow on social media will totally understand,and for me it was another plus point in my enjoyment of reading and I look forward to reading more!
