There’s no turning back…
The second I spared Isabel’s life, everything changed. I used to deal in death wishes. Now the instinct to protect her charts the course. Because every time I turn away from her, something turns me back. She’s uncovered a side of me that I can no longer ignore. Doesn’t change the fact that she doesn’t belong in my world.
Isabel’s learning to hold her own, but nothing can prepare her for the life I’m being called back into. With a long road ahead of us, I won’t make promises I can’t keep. She can barely accept the dark deeds of my past—a bloody history spelled out in a ledger she’s more preoccupied with than I’d like. When an old associate sets a dangerous plan in motion, I can’t hide who I really am. And there’s no turning back…

Review by Susan:
After the last book I really had no idea which direction the author was going to take this story, I have to say, I wasn’t expecting that! The reader is once again kept on the edge of their seat, there’s so many twists that you just have to hold on and enjoy the ride. Old characters are back, some good, some not, also a few new ones. Secrets are revealed, new questions are to be answered, the ending!! I hope we don’t have to wait long for the next installment!  4.5 Stars

Keeping Her Close by Casey Diam


Title: Keeping Her Close
Author: Casey Diam
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: August 14, 2018
When a heart is broken, it withdraws, shielding itself
from further pain, but also from further life.
Brandon Kuvat gave up on love ten years ago—the year he was set to
become a dad. A wealthy playboy pilot, he still sees plenty of action, but he’s
not the man he once was. Or the man he wishes he could be. The first time he
encounters Jordan, he knows immediately she is different. He also knows hurting
her is inevitable. Still, he can’t stay away, even if it means he’ll have to
settle for a friendship—but only for as long as that can last.

Wounded by a disastrous relationship, Jordan Artesian has put
her whole focus on work, nurturing her dreams of owning her own fashion line.
But though her creativity blooms, the rest of her is still frozen, that is,
until Brandon charms his way into her life. He’s irritating, but
somehow…intriguing. She hates that she finds his charming and challenging
ways attractive. He isn’t supposed to make her feel things she’s given up on

For these two, friendship will never be enough—not when she’s what he needs to
heal, and he’s what she needs to feel again. But can they find their way down
the path of friendship to truly love and trust one another, or will they only
destroy each other’s hearts all over again?

Review by Candy:
That was an incredible read. A must read for sure. 5 stars!
Two broken souls who are attracted at first sight. But only end up friends till it’s too much. Jordan is a shy designer wanted to get her designs out there. Brandon is a wealthy man who isn’t feeling the same as he did when started his carefree attitude. An outing for Brandon brings him in contact with Jordan, but she’s different than the others. Will he get her in more ways than one or not at all?
Jordan is a great character that you’ll fall in love with cause she is a shy feisty woman. Brandon on the other hand you’ll want to slap or strangle, but in time fall in love with as well. The build of this story was on spot if you’d done it differently it wouldn’t have been the same. Casey I totally couldn’t put this story down once I started. You had me from the beginning straight to the end. Times you had me laughing and others in tears. I could feel both characters feelings because you delivered them well with your words. The story flowed between the characters point of view.

Midnight with the Devil by Emma Castle

Release Date: August 13, 2018

Cover Design: Covers By Combs




He’s sexy as sin and hotter than hell and—oh wait.

What would you do to save a loved one’s life? Make a pact with the Devil?

In Diana Kingston’s defense, it was the middle of the night in the deserted hospital chapel… surely it was just a dream. She hadn’t really sold herself to a brooding stranger to save her father’s life, right? Then she wakes and her father is fully recovered and a mysterious letter arrives from the tall, dark, handsome—um, Devil? Yep, it was right there on the contract, Lucien Star, aka Lucifer Morningstar, that had been his name in the dream… Gulp. What would the Devil himself want with her? Sex. Three months of hot, sweaty, Friday night sex.

Ooookay. Breaking a pact with the Devil doesn’t seem like a smart move. So she’ll do it—but she won’t like it. Not much anyway. But she starts liking it – a lot—and every night they spend together, she likes it and Lucien a little more. Being with him allows her naughty side to come out and play, but Diana starts to see more than just a sexy-as-sin, rock-hard … er…Anyway, he might be Satan, but even he was an angel once. Kind. Noble. And she sees glimpses of that man still inside him… But how in Heaven’s name do you save the Devil from himself?

Review by Susan:

This is a new to me author and also their first book, this is not the usual book I read but I was hooked after reading the blurb! It is a wonderful read, it has love, lust, heartbreak and some steamy scenes, the story focuses on Lucien and Diana and the pact she made with him. The chemistry between them is off the charts from the moment they meet, my kindle nearly went up in flames from the heat they were giving off! I did wonder how it would work as he is the actual devil but it does make sense and proves that love conquers all. The story is well written and flows well, this book was a refreshing change and I highly recommend it. 5 Stars

Reckless King by Maya Hughes

Title: Reckless King

Author: Maya Hughes

Genre: New Adult Romance

Release Date: August 23, 2018




An irresistibly steamy college sports romance.


Heath Taylor. Laid back. Easy going. Fastest guy on two skates and chill to a fault, at least that’s what they say. Until Kara.


Three nights together and I’m done for. Her laugh, her smile, the way my hand curves around her waist. She’s the one. Not a doubt in my mind…until I walk into my last class of the semester.

Kara, the woman of my dreams, is my new instructor. My hockey season and her career prospects are on the line. One false move–if anyone finds out–we’re both sunk.

On the ice I’m a beast that can’t be stopped, but thoughts of her are throwing me off my game. My fingers itch to feel her in my arms again. But risking everything could ruin what we’ve worked so hard for.

Sometimes life has a way of changing the best laid plans. And sometimes you can’t stay away no matter the promises you make.

Life doesn’t play fair, but neither do I…

Author: Ashley Jade

Genre: New Adult

Release Date: August 1, 2018




She needed to be loved…
He needed to be saved.
When an opportunity comes knocking, you shouldn’t question
Unless it comes in the form of a 5’2″, feisty,
loudmouth girl who just so happens to hate your guts. 
The same girl you haven’t been able to get out of your head
for three years. 
But, I’m a gambler by nature. A risk taker. 
So when Kit Bishop makes me an offer I’m in no position to
refuse… I take it. 
I just have to make sure I don’t end up giving her more than
what we both bargained for. 
Like the fucked-up thing beating in my chest.
There’s no one on earth I hate more than Preston
As if our past didn’t give me enough of a reason—he’s also a
cocky, arrogant jerk with a gambling problem. 
Unfortunately for me, he just so happens to be the only guy
I can ask to help me with my issue.  
It’s simple. 
He needs the money. I need a husband. 
It’s strictly business. A one-year stint between
No strings. No feelings—other than our mutual dislike for
one another. 
But the thing about hate? It can flip on a dime.
It can have you questioning things about yourself you never
thought you would. 
And if I’m not careful—things are going to get even more
complicated between us.
You know the saying—’til death do us part?
Well, in our case? It includes all the complicated parts.

Review by Paula:
I couldn’t wait to start reading this book by how the first one ended. I gotta say I loved this book even more. Complicated doesn’t even touch on the story between Preston and Kit. Drama, emotionally draining and I even laughed at parts but what hit me the most is the connection. The connection between Preston and Kit is like waiting for a pin to drop just so you can hear it. Every page had me sitting on the edge wanting to know and feel more. Yes I actually threw my phone at parts and wanted to pull out my hair. Everything is just complicated 5 stars deserves so many more stars

skitters to her face—her beautiful fucking face—and the way she stared at me

When Light Leads To You by C.R. Ellis

Today C.R. Ellis is here today to share her new release, WHEN LIGHT LEADS TO YOU! Check it out and be sure to grab your copy today!


Author: C.R. Ellis

Genre: Contemporary Romance


Once upon a time, there was a girl who had a crush on a boy. Eventually, they fell in love. They lived happily ever after.

Except they didn’t. Not even close.
I’m the girl, but that’s not my story.

Once upon a time, I fell for a boy, but we didn’t have a happily ever after. In fact, we crashed and burned. Which turned out to be for the best because it forced me to grow up and realize the only wedding bells in my future are the ones I orchestrate for clients.

For six years I’ve been perfectly content with meaningless, short-lived flings and running from anything that resembles a real relationship.

That boy?
He’s my best friend’s brother, and he’s no longer the boy I fell for—he’s a man I can’t stand.

Oh, and he’s also my new neighbor.

Seemingly overnight, Jasmine Winters went from being my sister’s best friend to being the girl I couldn’t get enough of. But like most good things, it didn’t last.

Things fell apart so suddenly, I’m able to convince myself that summer never happened. At least, I was, until the only distance between us is a hallway instead of a time zone.

Six years ago, I let Jasmine slip through my fingers without an explanation because I was convinced we’d be better off apart. But now that we’re neighbors, our unspoken vow of apathy has unwittingly been shattered. Our exchanges consist of trading insults and icy stare downs. But in-between, I catch glimpses of the way she used to look at me, glimpses of the girl I fell for years ago.

Things are different now, though. This time… I won’t let her walk away without giving me answers.

When Light Leads to You is the second full-length novel of the Forget Me Knot series, but can be read as a standalone. **Due to strong language and the sexy times between these two, this book is recommended to readers ages 18 and up.**

Review by Paula:

I love second chance romance with hate! Jasmine had a huge crush on Dean her best friends brother but with hearing one conversation everything changed. Six years later seeing Dean brought everything back to Jasmine and it wasn’t pretty. I loved all the back and fourth batter and the chemistry with it all! I wanted to yell at them both and put them in a room and tell them to just spit everything out already! Amazing story that keeps you in suspense about love. Will Jasmine finally bring her walls down and see Dean is the perfect man for her or will she walk away again? 5 Stars






Exclusive Excerpt:

Somehow, I didn’t feel an inkling of a hangover. In fact, I wasn’t even sleepy. My eyes had adjusted to the darkness enough to make out Dean’s toned, bulky figure. Studying the gorgeous man next to me was enough to clear the last traces of sleepiness from my brain. I scooted closer to Dean, planning to subtly wake him.

By any means necessary.

My fingers trailed down his abdomen and traced figure eights on the soft skin in the crevice created by the perfect V-shape extending from his boxers.

I leaned into his body and ran my tongue along his neck.

“Did you just lick me?” he asked, his voice groggy as he stirred awake.



“Just checking to see if you taste like seduction, too,” I responded with a grin.

He laughed. “And? What’s the verdict?”

I launched my body on top of his, peppering his neck with quick kisses.

“So…that’s a yes, then?”

“Shut up and kiss me, you cocky idiot,” I said, pressing my hips into his.

“There’s the morning Jasmine charm I was expecting.”

I laughed into our kiss, but it was short-lived when he lifted his hands and cupped my face, holding me in place so he could keep our kiss going. When Dean kissed me, I didn’t see stars. I saw red. I felt colors the same way some people felt sparks. It was a strange way to describe the emotions rushing through me, but it’s the only thing that felt remotely accurate. It was the closest thing to complete happiness I’d ever felt.

Without warning, he moved his hands down and gripped my torso, rolling us over so that he’d be on top of me. “How’re you feeling? How foggy is your memory of last night?” he asked.

“Never felt better. And, drunk or not, my memory’s a steel trap, baby. It’s all there. Are we really doing this?”

“Oh, we’re doing this. Right here, in my bed,” he answered between kisses against my throat.

I chuckled to cover up the shiver his lips sent racing through me. “Well, yeah, I know we’re doing that. But I meant—”

He cut me off with a kiss. “I know what you meant. That answer is the same. We’re doing all of it, Jas. No bullshit. No regrets this time.”

“No regrets,” I echoed.

Dean pushed back on his forearms to pull his knees up and straddle me. I ran my hands over his abs before reaching for my favorite part of him, and he reached for the hem of my shirt, gripping it tightly in both hands.

Instead of pulling it over my head, he swiftly ripped it all the way down the middle until it was wide open.

Holy shit.

It was unquestionably the hottest thing I’d ever seen.

Without missing a beat, he dropped down to focus all his attention on my tits. Like he hadn’t just shredded a shirt with his bare hands.

“You…just…ripped your own shirt,” I stated breathily, weaving my fingers through his hair to pull him back. I didn’t even care that I was practically panting. I’d never been more turned on in my life.

“I have others,” he said, leaning forward to trail kisses across my collar bone. “What I don’t have right now is patience.”
