But here I am, thirteen years later.
Maxon is all grown up.
Sexier than sin and more tempting than ever.
A detective on the Charleston force, he lives on the outside of safety, devoted to protecting the people of his city.
But with the way he’s looking at me now? I’m pretty sure what needs protecting is my heart.
Can we mend the pieces of us? Or will he leave my heart shattered forever . . .

Absolute must read! 5 Stars! Pieces of Us was a heart wrenching, heart warming, and a happy ever after story. A.L. is a great writer. She pulls you in from the start and keeps to there. I couldn’t stop reading unless my eyes drooped. Easy to follow along. You’ll cry and you’ll laugh and gasp at moments.

Sin & Discipline by Lily White

Title: Sin & Discipline
Author: Lily White
Genre: Taboo Romance
Release Date: April 24, 2019
Lennon Carter first saw my face with his hand around my throat.
 
Shock widened his eyes, starbursts of anger for what I’d done. That moment should have been the last of us; our beginning and end. Fate, it seems, had other plans.
 
A dedicated musician, Lennon would become my mentor, my shadow, my protector and nightmare.
 
We were two discordant notes that somehow blended with perfect harmony.
Challenged to become a pianist as talented as him, I became Lennon’s SIN, while he became my DISCIPLINE.

“Who are you, Amelia Dillon?”
Confusion flooded me. “What?”
It bothered me how my question came out more as a startled squeak than a word.
He grinned, just the corner of his lips curling with lazy satisfaction. Reaching out with his free hand, he trapped my chin between his fingers, holding my gaze to his without concern that I hadn’t invited the touch. Electricity sparked where his skin met mine, my head dizzy, my breath as uneven as my heartbeat.
“Who are you?”
My heart was in my throat, beating staccato so hard that I swore I was a few seconds from passing out. “I don’t-“
The gentle tone of his voice was at odds with his question. “Are you the shitty little thief hiding in a hoodie and baggy jeans? Or are you a musician who demands respect based on her talent and discipline?”
He was enjoying this moment far too much, the truth of his amusement written in the line of his lips, the sleepy look in his blue eyes. It only frightened me more.
“I’m a musician,” I whispered.
Mr. Carter leaned forward and I panicked, my eyes locked to his lips. He shouldn’t have been this close to me. There had to be rules against this. He didn’t seem to care.
I wasn’t a girl to be pushed around or controlled. Yet, in his presence, I stilled in place, unable to find the willpower to fight or move away.
Breath hot against my cheek, he whispered, “I don’t think you are. I think a musician would know better than to risk her hands acting like a stupid hoodrat that robs people. I think a musician knows better than to question the man who will be judging her performance. I think-“
My lips parted on a tremulous breath.
“-you didn’t believe me when I warned you I would spank your ass red if I ever caught you doing something so stupid again.”
There was no question about it; I was three seconds away from passing out.
He knew it and I knew it, his blue eyes locked to mine when he warned, “You should know that threat extends to you questioning me in class as well.”

 

Lily White is a romance writer who likes to dabble on the taboo side of eroticism. She is most known for her Masters Series, Target This, Wishing Well, and Asylum. In addition to dark romance Lily writes contemporary romance, taboo romance, and psychological thrillers. Lily enjoys stretching her writing muscles by continuing to challenge herself with each book she publishes.

Blackout: Book One by Janine Infante Bosco

 

 

Title: Blackout: Book One
Series: Leather and Lace Duet #1
Author: Janine Infante Bosco
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: April 1, 2019

 

Blurb
After years
of struggling with alcoholism and drug abuse, I got clean and put my best foot
forward. I became the man worthy of Lacey Parrish’s love and made the girl with
the sad brown eyes my wife. But I’m not the only one in our marriage with
demons. Diagnosed a manic depressive, Lacey struggles daily with her mind,
never willing to succumb to the stigma of mental illness.
The odds
have always been stacked against us, but the stakes have never been this high.
Pregnant with our child, Lacey is forced to choose between her mind and the
baby we wished for.
I can take
pain, but I can’t take hers.
Helpless
and at the mercy of all the things that plague us, I turn to my past.
It’s always
our favorite sins that do us in.
Leather.
Lace.
Me.
Her.
Suffering
through hell, hoping love is enough for us to survive one more blackout.
*This is
part one of the Leather & Lace duet and over 70,000 words.*
Review by Paula:
I love Blackie and Lacey so basically I felt like I was reading Parrish but just in a different point of view. We got to see Lacey struggling but more than ever filled with strength. Blackie we got to see his side of a addict and feeling like everything is coming down on him at once. I seriously can’t wait till the next book! 4 stars

Excerpt
Blackout,
Book One Excerpt: “That’s Not How This Works”
©Copyright
2019 Janine Infante Bosco
Learning
our baby might be born with a heart defect if Lacey remains on her medication
was the final card to fall. Now, all that’s left is a mountain of debris and I
don’t know how to drudge through any of it.
“Just go,”
Lacey says, keeping her back to me as she fills a water glass. It’s the third
time she’s poured herself a refill and I wonder if she’s wishing it was
something harder. God knows I’m fixing for something.
Scotch.
Whiskey.
Tequila.
I’d fucking
drink turpentine right now.
“I’m not
going anywhere, Lace, that’s not how this works,” I tell her, bracing my hands
on the kitchen island. We both know what happens if I leave, the problem is
she’s too wrapped up in her grief to realize she’s sending me straight to hell
because if I do as she says, I’ll either go to a bar or drive out to Queens to
score some drugs.
“Stop pretending
like either of us know how anything works,” she hisses, dropping her glass into
the sink. There’s truth to her words. A truth we’ve both been too fucking naïve
to accept.
She turns
to me, crossing her arms over her chest as she gives me her dark eyes.
“Every time
we take a step forward, we take three back. We’re a fucking joke, Blackie. Two
lost souls who will never get it right and now, we’re bringing a baby into the
world. If that’s not fucking selfish, I don’t know what is.”
“You didn’t
think it was selfish the first night I came in you,” I fire back, slamming my
fist against the counter. My anger gets the best of me and I lose my patience.
Everything, all the shit with the club, Jack’s failing mind, my addictions, and
her fucking illness, it all comes crashing to the surface.
“I told you
that night, I was worried about you getting pregnant and not because I thought
we didn’t deserve to be parents or because I didn’t want to have a baby. I was
concerned for you, for your fucking mental health but you told me there were
people like you all over the world having kids.”
“People
like me,” she repeats.
Ignoring
the hurt in her eyes, I continue my rant.
“You
fucking promised me you’d get in touch with your shrink. You swore you’d tell
her we were trying for a baby—”
“I didn’t
know I’d get pregnant so quickly,” she spats.
“You pissed
on your fucking word,” I shout over her.
As soon as
the words leave my lips, I regret them, but there’s no taking them back.
Maybe she
was right.
Maybe I
should’ve fucking left.
At least
then I wouldn’t have to watch the painful expression fill her pretty face.
It’s funny.
I can take
pain, but I can’t take hers. 
Exhaling, I
swipe a hand over my face and bow my head.
“Shit, I’m
sorry, Lace.”
“Don’t be
sorry for expressing how you truly feel,” she spats, furiously wiping at the
tear that escapes the corner of her eye.
“I don’t
know what the fuck I feel,” I admit, gripping the edge of the counter again.
Frustration claws at me as I keep my eyes pinned to her. “All I know is the
last thing I want to see is you lose yourself to your maker. I don’t understand
why you won’t just talk to the doctor before you make a decision.”
“And I
don’t know what’s so hard to comprehend. You know, it’s my body, therefore it’s
ultimately my decision, but it’s our
baby, Blackie. It’s not a dream anymore. It’s not a what if—I’m pregnant and I
can’t understand how you would risk our child being born with a heart
defect.”
Her words
slap me in the face, and I clench my jaw, trying to keep my emotions in check.
There shouldn’t be a choice. We shouldn’t have to choose between Lacey’s mental
stability and bringing a healthy baby into the world, but once again life’s got
us by the balls. No one gets a say in the cards they’re dealt. You get what you
get. You either play your fucking hand or you fold. Some people, go all in.
They risk everything they got and pray they don’t lose. Others, they’re more
cautious and maybe that’s because they’ve lost in the past. Maybe, just maybe
they want to hang onto what they got and don’t want to press their luck.
I already
visit one wife in a cemetery.
I don’t
want to visit Lacey in the fucking psych ward.
“Let me ask
you something,” I say hoarsely, pausing to swallow the lump suffocating me.
“Have you thought about what happens after the baby is born? More specifically,
have you taken a fucking second to think about what happens to you?”
She doesn’t
answer me as she diverts her eyes away and I take the opportunity to paint her
a picture.
“The baby
is born, and she’s perfect. She’s got a full head of dark hair and the
prettiest brown eyes either of us has ever seen. She’s everything we dreamed of
and yet, I’m the only one living the dream. You don’t look at her the way I do.
You don’t hold her and feel the same things I do. To you, she just exists, and
you don’t understand why. You forget the sacrifices you made bringing her into
the world. You forget the dreams you had for her. You forget it all.”
“Stop,” she
orders, balling her fists at her side.
“No,” I
growl. “I won’t stop. You won’t get to experience the joys of motherhood,
Lacey. You won’t hold her in the middle of the night when she wakes. You won’t
get to watch her grow or teach her how to walk. You won’t even give a fuck
because you and your maker will be one. She wins and your child, the precious
baby you fought to bring into this world, she fucking loses.”
Suddenly,
Lacey spins around and takes the glass from the sink. Before I realize what
she’s doing, she turns back to me and throws it across the room. It misses me
by an inch and crashes against the floor.
“Get the
fuck out of here,” she cries.
When I
don’t move, she advances towards me and stands across the other end of the
island.
“I want you
to leave!”
“I’ll go,”
I tell her. “But I won’t fucking apologize for a word of what I just said.
Children are born with birth defects every day, Lace. Sometimes the doctors
catch them early on and sometimes they don’t find out until the baby is already
in the mother’s arms. That don’t make them broken or any less loveable.”

Force of Nature by S.L. Scott

FORCE OF NATURE IS LIVE!

READ FOR FREE ON KINDLE UNLIMITED

“This book is for true lovers of romance! A unique, strong, feisty heroine. And the hero! Gah! He’s an alpha hero that you will fall head-over-heels for.”

~Adriana Locke, USA Today and Washington Post

Amazon

Paperback

Audio

Synopsis

Winter Nobleman is complicated. To say the least.

It was supposed to be simple. Go to Paris, find a client’s daughter, and close a multi-million-dollar deal. Easy. Then I meet her. Stormy blue eyes, quick wit, and the secrets she keeps on the tip of her tongue make me forget my mission for a moment, or six, and why I’m in Paris in the first place—to bring her home.

Distracted by her beauty, I fail to notice the others lurking with missions of their own.

Bennett Everest is the twist I never saw coming. Talk about perfect timing.

He steals my breath the first time I see him and breathes hope back into my heart. He’s a giant in my eyes, a king among men with patience and love to share in spades. Six foot three. Whiskey-colored eyes. Solid gold on the inside.

Despite the dirty deeds of my past, he sees the person I am meant to be and not the person I have become.

If the lies don’t kill us, will the truth set us free?

 

“Absolutely Best Romantic Suspense of 2019!” – Lulu, FB/GR

“Bennett is so so sexy and romantic. He’s THE best book boyfriend.” -Barbara, Goodreads

“With stellar writing and the kind of plot that you instantly connect with, Force of Nature was everything I love in a story and more.” -LitlJen, Goodreads

Love at first site romance make me swoon and this is definitely one of those. Winter has you laughing at her personality but also proud of her  at her strength! Bennett is one alpha man and is suppose to watch over Winter but he’s stuck on protecting her and doesn’t matter who or what it is. Intense at times but damn is this book good! Loved every page 5 stars

ENVY BY M.N. FORGY

AN ELITE SEVEN IS LIVE!

Keep reading to grab your copy & to enter to win a $20 gift card!!!

 

It was temptation that broke the sinner.

People say I have everything.
They’re wrong.
I may have looks, money, and privilege, but I don’t have the one thing that really matters, the one thing I crave: a woman with eyes only for me.
I’m searching for my woman—one who will fall to her knees because I’m her king. She’ll wear the crown of my tarnished name, and long for me when I’m not near. And when I am close, she’ll be naked across my lap, feeling the sting of my palm across her milky skin.
You could say I’m a sinner because I’d do anything to have the perfect woman—compliant to my every need and whim—and I’m envious of every couple who walks around naive to the luxury they have.

That’s why I joined The Elite, the most prestigious brotherhood in the south.
It’s the one place that will give me what I cannot have.
Only…the task assigned to me is too much for my jealous eyes.
Accept your sin wisely, for the tasks given to earn your place are not for the weak…they’re for The Elite.
Those who envy have no peace.
My name is Sabastian Westbrook.
I am Envy.

The Elite Seven

7 AUTHORS.
7 STORIES.
7 DEADLY SINS.

 

Since 1942, The Elite Seven Society have created and guided influential leaders, molding the country into something better. This society was birthed by Malcolm Benedict, II who wanted more for Americans. More wealth. More influence. More power. Some leaders have the skills, but not the influence, and that simply wasn’t fair according to Mr. Benedict. He invested his own money and time to construct a society that bred the best of the best, year after year.

But to be the best, you must be ruthless.

Good leaders make sacrifices. Sometimes the sacrifices are hard, but the rewards are plentiful. Mr. Benedict made sure to indulge these leaders with their utmost desires. A devout Catholic himself, he designed a society that rewarded his leaders with the sins that were frowned upon. If they were giving up love and happiness and joy for the betterment of the country, they deserved something in its stead.

Pride, Envy, Wrath, Sloth, Greed, Gluttony, and Lust.

Choosing leaders for this society means that it takes intense focus. Only seven are to be selected, and the investments and time are showered upon the new seven chosen every four years. The predecessors of each group of seven choose people who fit the sin that will mold them into who they are needed to be in the future—what America needs them to be. This is after a detailed study of many potential candidates. The university’s acting dean behaves as a liaison for the society bringing the college applicants to the predecessors so that the selection may begin. The society members who are going out will bring forth a candidate that the society votes on and approves.

After they are chosen, the initiates are given a token and an invitation to initiation. The initiation will be a test to their character and ability to do what’s right for the betterment of the society. Once the initiates pass their test, they are discreetly branded with the mark of the society and are groomed through challenges during the course of their elite education to breed them into the influential people they were meant to be.

Once in The Elite Seven, there is no getting out. The money and power are their rewards. Should they choose to stray or break the rules, the society strips them of everything. Anything they once had will be removed. Opportunities will never arise. They will no longer have the support of the society. To this day, there have been no known occurrences of anyone from the society having to be banished. This elite group of people is what every young man and woman aspire to be a part of. While the group is a secret society, they are whispered about amongst the privileged folks in the country. Anyone who is anyone knows of the group and secretly hopes it’s their son or daughter who is selected, for good fortune is showered on the family for decades to come.

Lust: NOW LIVE

I was born with wealth, athletic ability, and looks that could melt the panties off a nun.
I had a clear path to success.
Until fate dealt me a cruel blow, leaving me empty and in need of purpose.
My only focus now is to become part of The Elite—a secret society in one of the most prestigious colleges in the world.
But everything comes at a price, and with The Elite, you have to earn your place.
Lucky for me, being sinful is in my DNA.
The only obstacle to full initiation is my task: seduce the un-seducible, the forbidden, and lure her with the sins of the flesh.
Easy for a man like me…in theory.
She started as my task, but what happens when the lines between lust and love blur, and the need for power rages war with the need for her?
Accept your sin wisely, for the tasks given to earn your place are not for the weak—they’re for The Elite.
This is my life, my chance, my legacy.
I am Rhett Masters.
I am Lust.

Pride: NOW LIVE!

The greatest trick the devil ever pulled was convincing the world he didn’t exist.

But who said the devil was a he?

In my world, she was out to cause havoc on all our lives.

She’ll use the one thing I care most about to control me—force me into her Elite world, filled with sin, deceit, and power. And under her spell, I’ll lead a sinister brotherhood of seven at one of the most prestigious universities in New Orleans.

Seven tasks set forth by the devil herself, promising nothing less than the forbidden fruit of power. What they don’t understand is it will all end in bloodshed and regret.

They call me the alpha. The one in charge. The one with pride bigger than any task I could be given. And my pride won’t let me be anywhere but at the top of the food chain until she gives me what I truly want.

My task is Meghan Thorne.

She’s too pure for me to touch, too good for me to ruin—and the only thing standing in my way to freedom.

Accept your sin wisely, for the tasks given to earn your place are not for the weak…they’re for The Elite.

As they say, pride comes before the fall.

I am Mason Blackwell.

I am Pride.

Wrath: NOW LIVE

I’m a motherless son to a father who hates me. Fury has lived and breathed in my black heart for so long, it’s a part of my soul now. The only thing that’s ever mattered to me is protecting my twin sister, Sabella, from my father’s temper.

So when the chance to join a secret society presents itself, there’s no question I’ll do whatever it takes to become a member and earn my place in the ranks of only the most Elite.

With a taste for the deviant, I’m drawn to the darkest of desires, and no one ever leaves my bed unscathed.
My task: seduce Patience Noelle, St. Augustine’s sweetheart and the mayor’s beloved daughter—then break her heart.

Sinning is what I live for, and deviance is my passion. Failing has never been an option.

But what happens when my sin becomes my curse—when destroying the only woman I’ve ever wanted is my key to protecting my sister?
Accept your sin wisely, for the tasks given to earn your place are not for the weak…they’re for The Elite.

This isn’t just my chance, it’s my legacy and reckoning.

Envy: NOW LIVE

It was temptation that broke the sinner.

People say I have everything.
They’re wrong.
I may have looks, money, and privilege, but I don’t have the one thing that really matters, the one thing I crave: a woman with eyes only for me.
I’m searching for my woman—one who will fall to her knees because I’m her king. She’ll wear the crown of my tarnished name, and long for me when I’m not near. And when I am close, she’ll be naked across my lap, feeling the sting of my palm across her milky skin.
You could say I’m a sinner because I’d do anything to have the perfect woman—compliant to my every need and whim—and I’m envious of every couple who walks around naive to the luxury they have.

That’s why I joined The Elite, the most prestigious brotherhood in the south.
It’s the one place that will give me what I cannot have.
Only…the task assigned to me is too much for my jealous eyes.
Accept your sin wisely, for the tasks given to earn your place are not for the weak…they’re for The Elite.
Those who envy have no peace.
My name is Sabastian Westbrook.
I am Envy.

Greed: Releasing April 8th

I was born into a world of darkness—one that never touched me when I was around my brother, Mason Blackwell. Leader of The Elite Seven. The thing about darkness, though, is it’s persistent. Eventually, it pushes itself into my life, penetrating my soul and leaving its stench latched to every vein, rooted inside every bone, and sunken into every pore. I thought I reached rock bottom when I fell in love with my brother’s best friend. My very own brand of drug with no comedown. My own nightmare I never woke from. But I was wrong. So very wrong. When I returned to New Orleans, I arrived as a shell of the girl they once knew. Put on a smile. Be the sweet innocent girl they remember.

I’m Evie Blackwell, hostage to my demons. Can the damned be saved?

I’ve done some unforgivable acts in my years, but I never asked for forgiveness. Nothing beats the feeling of wrapping my hand around someone’s throat and watching as their life bleeds down their cheeks. She was everything I should have stayed away from. The first night I saw her, I knew I was doomed—a slave to the girl with the pretty eyes and soft smile. The girl who turned out to be my best friend’s baby sister. I couldn’t stay away. I had to be near her, even if it meant ruining her in the process. I wanted to wreck her, so I could piece her back together—a puzzle only I knew how to solve.

I’m Micah Dixon.
Greed.
I come for everything and get everything I come for—and I want all of her. But she’s changed, and so have I.
I’m much, much worse now…

GREED By Amo Jones

 

Gluttony: Releasing April 22nd

My life has been served to me on a gold platter to be devoured by my silver spoon.

Money, money, and more money. It’s the backbone of the Goddard name. I’m the only son, so it’s all mine for the taking.

But sometimes money isn’t enough. I always want more, yet nothing seems to satisfy me.

My father has made sure I become a part of The Elite Seven. Where most candidates are chosen, I was given my place. Everything comes at a price, though. Luckily, I can afford any price—no one has more money than God.

The Elite Seven have their initiations. My assignment is personal and beneath me: steal a car and send a warning. It’ll hurt my best friend in the process, but we both made a pact going into this. There’s no line we won’t cross.

My task makes an ugly turn and I nearly take a life. Such a small, unimportant person—someone no one would even notice was gone. She’s a problem my money and power can easily sweep under the rug.

It’s what my father wants. It’s what my brothers want. But when she finally opens those big, innocent brown eyes, I realize I’ve found what I’ve been searching for my entire life. I don’t want my little problem to disappear…I want to keep her.

Accept your sin wisely, for the tasks given to earn your place are not for the weak—they’re for The Elite.

Money is my legacy, but I want something money can’t buy.
I am Baxter Samuel Goddard V.
I am Gluttony.

GLUTTONY by K. Webster

 

Sloth: Releasing May 13th

I don’t give a fuck.
Not about money or fame, beauty or power. I’ve had all those things since birth, and trust me, they’re a fucking snooze.
I don’t give a fuck about anyone, not even myself.
Until my father proves evil can exist in the most holy of places. For the first time ever, something like interest stirs in my soul.
He wants me to enroll at St. Augustine.
Join The Elite.
Court the virginal daughter of Archbishop Savoie.
Prove to him I’m worth the family name.
I’ll do it all.
And I’ll do it so well, no one will know what’s coming. People are so quick to underestimate the wicked and lazy.
They forget idle hands are the best tools for the devil’s work.
I am Rush Dempsey.
I am Sloth.

The Five by Lily White

Title: The Five
Author: Lily White
Genre: Dark Romance
Release Date: March 20, 2019

Every man who meets Rainey wants her. Having lived a life of sex, drugs and manipulation, she is a temptation with far too many secrets.When psychologist, Justin Redding, is assigned to Rainey’s case, he has no way of knowing the tale of debauchery he will encounter.

On a twisted path of love, loss and murder, Rainey leads Justin through the events of her life.

Death follows Rainey…

Justin fights to discover her secrets…

But will he discover the secret of THE FIVE in time to resist Rainey’s ultimate seduction?


“This book deals with sensitive subject matter that may be upsetting to some readers.”

 

 

“No, Rainey. Let me look at you. I love looking at you. Even when I close my eyes, all I see is you.”

 

I dropped my arms, my legs trembling. This was Rowan, the sweet, kindhearted boy I loved. Yet, in that moment I feared him. The adrenaline was wearing off and I was suddenly so cold.

 

His lips parted as he stared at me, those blue eyes I knew so well slowly taking in my body as heat blazed behind them. He’d grown so large, twice my size at least, and it had never occurred to me how strong he was until now. Nobody would pick on him anymore. Not without getting their asses handed to them in a fight.

 

“Can I touch you, Rainey?” His eyes lifted to mine. “Is that all right? For me to touch you?”

 

“Always,” I whispered, unable to put any strength in my voice. “You can always touch me.”

 

He stepped forward and I stepped back out of instinct. He would never hurt me. Not Rowan. But what I saw in him now was the predator that had always lingered just beneath the surface. He wasn’t a monster like his family or David. Not him. He was something else entirely.

 

Pain shot through his eyes when I moved, his hands fisting at his sides. “Do I scare you now?”

 

Shaking my head, I forced my mouth to move. “No. It’s just -“

 

“Just what?”

 

“You’re different, Rowan. A man, I guess. You’ve grown.”

 

Blue eyes held mine, the darkness in them seeping away, but not entirely. His lips pulled into a tight smile. “You need a man. I’ve become exactly what you need. For you, Rainey. Not anybody else. Just for you.”

 

I drew in a rattling breath. “Touch me.”

 

Rowan moved forward and I held my ground, craning my neck to look up at him. He was shaking, his skin so cold that I knew I had to fix him somehow. “Rowan?”

 

“Yeah?”

 

“Will you kiss me?”
Review by Paula:
Holy hell! I’m speechless well not really just sitting here with my mouth open and actually excited. Yeah I know I’m a sick woman but damn this book definitely is  one of the best dark books I’ve ever read and I’ve read a ton!  “Our love story was a different beast, one filled with insanity, with heartache and misfortune.” My favorite quote from this book but there is soo many it’s hard to choose. This book is dark, intense, gritty and pure insane and I loved every page! The Five is definitely one book I’ll never forget. Warning if your not into dark don’t read it but if you love dark romance and some sick nasty stuff then I bet you will love it as much as I do! 5/5 stars  oh and nope not giving any spoilers. Just enjoy Rainey’s story 😈😍😈 TOP DARK READ OF 2019!

Trust the Push by Kaylee Ryan

 

Title: Trust the Push
Author: Kaylee Ryan
Genre: New Adult Romance
Release Date: March 19, 2019

 

Blurb
I’m making strides in the world of dirt late model
racing.  With back to back championships under my belt, I’m determined
to win a third and be the youngest driver in history to do so.  I’m
going to make it happen my career is my focus.  That is until the
ultimate distraction in the form of a redheaded bombshell drops into my life.
I know nothing about racing, but when my boss comes to me
with a special assignment, I take it.  Now, here I am traveling from
city to city engrossed in this new world.  I never would have dreamed
that this project would lead me to new friendships and ultimately finding love.
We made a deal, our time together would expire, and we would
part ways.  The only problem with that is I’m not so sure that’s what
I want anymore. She’s pushing at my walls, and I’m trusting her, letting
them fall.
It’s a shame we put an end date on our time together.  I
knew I would fall for him, but I never dreamed that those feelings would run
this deep.  The plan was to walk away, that’s what we agreed to, it’s
just going to be harder than I thought.  I need a new plan one that
helps me move on without him.
Review by Susan:

Wow, Kaylee has done it again, I was sucked straight into this story and I didn’t want it to end! I got to 70% and had to keep walking away from my kindle so I could make it last longer!

Blaine and Aubree are an unlikely pairing, he’s a racing driver, very focused and has no time for a relationship. Aubree is a massage therapist,she has no idea about the racing circuit but she is thrust into his world and neither are prepared for the other. His reaction to her makes him unlike able at first, once he comes to terms with his feelings we see a softer side to him. Aubree is no pushover, she gives him as good as she gets, she was such a likable character. Once they give in to their feelings and the chemistry between them they scorch the pages! I loved all the background characters, they were fun and helped to enhance the story.

This is another winner from this author, the story draws you in and keeps you hooked till the last page. Can’t wait to see what awesomeness this author comes up with next. 5 Stars
