Bad boy quarterback Tyler Harris plays ball for a living and breaks hearts for a hobby.

With two championships in as many years, Tyler is the best quarterback in the league. Gorgeous and rich, he’s at the top of his game. Women love him. Men want to be him. Only Tyler’s not feeling the love. In fact, he’s not feeling anything at all. Licking his wounds after a scandal and a breakup with his long-time girlfriend, he retreats to a run-down mansion on a remote island in the Pacific Northwest. Once there, Tyler is blindsided by the sassy redhead next door. He knows that he’s met his match and possibly his soulmate. There’s one problem. She despises him.

Lavender Mead has a good reason to dislike jocks, namely an absentee father who deserted the family to coach college football. Maybe that explains her penchant for bad boys — especially those who play ball. Her new neighbor seems just that type. Yet Tyler’s not the shallow superstar she expected, and she’s inexplicably drawn to football’s bad boy. The two are so hot together, they’re combustible.

As the clock ticks down, can they commit to each other forever? Or will they both fall short of the goal at the last minute?

Review by Susan:

Tyler has the world at his feet, money, fame and women but he’s just not feeling it. After a scandal and breaking up with his long term girlfriend, Tyler retreats to a remote island to lick his wounds and contemplate what to do next. Lavender should hate jocks, Tyler is everything she hates but she can’t keep away from him. Can Tyler break down lavenders barriers and show her not all jocks are the same? Can lavender give Tyler and love a chance? You will have to read to find out!

This was a fun and entertaining read, I loved the bickering and banter between Tyler and Lavender, the chemistry between the characters was off the charts. I loved that we get to see them both mature over the course of the book and see their barriers fall bit by bit. I read this book in one sitting, I was hooked from the start,  another wonderful read from this fabulous author.  4 Stars

Big Stick by Kelly Jamieson

Big Stick by Kelly Jamieson is available now!
“Kelly Jamieson is my go-to author for hockey romance.”—USA Today bestselling author Jami Davenport

A brooding hockey hunk learns to embrace life—and love—from a single mom who takes the world one puck at a time.Big move . . . Jodie’s motto is “Don’t wait for the perfect moment—take the moment and make it perfect.” And that’s just what she decides to do when she moves to Chicago with her two-year-old daughter. Now all Jodie needs is a place to live, and her best friend’s boyfriend has just the answer.

Big stick . . . Nick Balachov has zero interest in socializing, partying, or flirting right now. It’s not that he doesn’t like women. He loves them. It’s just that hockey, casual hookups, and hanging out at home are enough for him these days. Now Nick has a big problem—because the woman living in his empty coach house is a major distraction.

Big deal? The more Nick tries to keep his distance, the more Jodie needs him—around the house, that is. First he helps with the snowstorm, then the power outage. Nick even finds himself trying to impress her little girl. What the hell is wrong with him? Jodie represents everything Nick doesn’t want. But maybe she’s just what he needs. . . .

Review by Susan:

This is the seventh book in the series but it could be read as a standalone, this is Nick and Jodie’s story. Nick doesn’t make a great first impression when he meets Jodie, he’s standoffish, grumpy and miserable but life has been hard for him. Nick finds Jodie’s incessant chat aggravating but circumstance keeps putting her in Nicks path and what at first he found annoying, is now soothing to him, throw in a cute 2yr old and his once black heart is now beating again. Jodie is a single mother by choice, business owner, not used to relying on anyone but once she crosses paths with a hot hockey player she knows her life will never be the same.

There’s some ups and downs, strong emotions, romance and playoff beards that will keep you turning the pages. We get to catch up with previous couples and get a hint at who the next book will be about. This was another great read from this author, I totally devoured this book in one sitting, I loved both Nick and Jodie, it was great watching their relationship blossom and bloom and seeing Nick open his heart. Can’t wait to read the next book in this series.  5 Stars!

Review by Susan:

This was my first read by this author and what an introduction it was! It is also the first of a new series and boy what a start it is! This book has everything you want from an MC read, brotherhood, loyalty, Backstabbing, twists and turns that you don’t see coming and also can you say hot?! Boy was it hot, it nearly melted my kindle, most of the scenes are NSFW so beware before you dive into it.

The story follows Lynch, who is the new president of the club after the death of his father, Zoe aka Candi, is new to MC life she just wants to knock something off her bucket list and boy what a way she does it!

Lynch certainly rocks her world, as the story unfolds, Lynch vows to stay away from Zoe but she’s under his skin and messing with his head, what’s a rough, tough, alpha male, mc pres to do?? You will have to read to find out!

This was a thrilling read from beginning to end, I was hooked and kept on the edge of my seat till the end. It was a great introduction to the Ravens Ruin MC, I can’t wait to read more about them.  5 Stars

A Change of Pace by Freya Barker

Title: A Change of Pace
Series: Northern Lights Collection
Stand alone
Author: Freya Barker
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: July 16, 2018



Once a man who lived by the letter of the law.
 
Newt Tobias will do anything for his little girl. Even take early retirement, sell his city home, and move to cottage country, hoping that the simpler life will provide a better balance for his troubled teenage daughter. 
 
Yet, not long after they’ve settled, he finds himself toe-to-toe with a stubborn, fiery tempered woman with pretty brown eyes.
 
Once a recluse preferring to live alone. 
 
Working with troubled adolescents, Frederique Marchand doesn’t suffer fools and won’t put up with bullies. Especially handsome strangers like Newt who think they can run roughshod over her. She loves her work, but on her own time she much prefers the company of her menagerie of animals.
 

But with the welfare of a teenager at stake, she must put aside rocky first impressions and work with a man who needs her as much as she’ll come to need him.

Review by Victoria:

This is one of those books I wish I had more than 5 stars to give. I had to talk myself into putting it down so that I didn’t finish it too quick!

Newt is your classic macho man. Retired from the Ottawa Police Force, he’s learning to juggle raising his daughter after her mother passed from cancer. Millie and Newt pack their lives up for a change of pace from big city to the all northern community around Parry Sound.
With their big move, Newt meets Freddy. Frederique, or Freddy as everyone knows her, has had her fair share of hard times in life but now helps the youth with Boulder the support dog by her side and a farm full of animals. She hasn’t had interest in creating a love life in years, even if the new comer is something delicious.
Newt and Freddy come together on a slow burning journey to finding out just how perfect they are for each other. Their love and strength together can help not only themselves but all those around them. I love this series for its honest view of how life in the small communities can be. Newt and Freddy develop not only their relationship but that of a community coming together when one of their own needs it. This is not only a story of a love growing but of how that love can grow an entire family around them.
This is a story you won’t want to miss, let Freddy and Newt show you just how far love can take you. 5 stars!
Review by Christine:
I’ve fallen in love again… Freya Barker has created another beautifully crafted tale of love and healing wrapped in the stunning setting of Cottage Country in Ontario, Canada.

If you enjoy a summer romance with strong characters and a bit of crime drama with a whole lot of heart this is the book for you. Actually this entire series of standalone non-connected stories are for you. This book deals with hard topics and sensitive issues with an impeccable level of skill that I find in each of the authors books.

A Change Of Pace is a must read of 2017 ~ 5 “Puppy Love” Stars!

“How was school?” 

“Fine.” It’s the same answer Millie gave me yesterday and it doesn’t tell me anything. I read somewhere once that when a woman says ‘fine,’ it means she’s everything but. 

“Anything exciting?” I try again, which earns me an eye-roll, and I turn my eyes back to the road.

“Actually,” she suddenly says, surprising me. “I met a dog today.”

“At school?” I’m confused; I didn’t know they let dogs in the school.

“Yeah. Dad, can we get a dog?”

“Wait. Is that even allowed? Bringing a dog into school?”

“I guess so. He’s some kind of service dog. But, Dad, can we have a dog?”

“What—like a Seeing Eye dog?”

“No, he belonged to a therapist visiting the school. So can we?”

“You saw a therapist?”

“It was just some kind of welcome thing they do with new kids.”

“That’s pretty neat.”

“Whatever, it wasn’t a big deal. Can we pick up a donut at Tim Hortons?” she asks, changing tracks at lightning speed. We’re coming up to Nobel and Timmies is just down the road. “I just really liked the dog. So?”

“Sure, we can.” 

The screaming that follows almost has me running the damn Jeep off the road.

“Yes! Thanks so much, Dad,” she says with more enthusiasm than I’ve heard her express in the past four years. “Can we get one this weekend?” 

Now I’m confused. Does she not want me to stop now?

“You want your donut this weekend?” 

“Donut I want now.” She turns to me with big wide innocent eyes. “But we can shop for the dog this weekend?”

Wait. What?

Mick Laughlin can handle anything – except a broken heart. He never understood why the girl he loved in college suddenly turned her back on him and he’s avoided romance ever since. Now a top young architect at his family’s firm, he’s been sent all over the globe to work on elite projects.

Four years ago, Melina Lakkas fell in love with her younger brother’s best friend. When his family made it clear they would never accept her, she walked away. It was a no-win situation, which would have been made worse had they discovered her secret.

When Mick takes on the design and execution of an exclusive resort in Santorini, he plans to stay as far away from Athens—and Lena—as possible. Then a fire at the job site leaves him with no choice but to call on his best friend’s sister for help. As secrets from the past unravel, can Mick forgive her long enough to forgive himself?

Paige Carter’s fling with the dark-haired, green-eyed Greek was short, but it blew her mind. Her only regret was not finding out whether she’d ever see him again before he returned to Greece.

Apollo Lakkas earned his degree and was thrilled to return to Greece to begin work with his family’s shipping business. His only regret is the way he left the sweet blonde he met in Vegas—who may or may not be his wife.

When an unexpected proposal throws Paige into a panic, she packs a bag for Athens and does the one thing she knows she must do before she can face any kind of future… reconcile her past.

The moment their eyes meet once again, Paige and Apollo feel the same spark that ignited them down the aisle. Will they be able to plan a future together or is their love destined to be nothing but a bittersweet memory?

About the Author:
Kat Mizera is a South Florida native. Born in Miami Beach with a healthy dose of wanderlust, she’s called Los Angeles, Long Island, upstate New York, Massachusetts, New Hampshire and Atlanta home. She’s never been able to pick which locale is her favorite, but if pressed, she’d probably choose the west coast.
Kat’s a typical PTA mom with a wonderful and supportive husband (Kevin) and two amazing boys (Nick and Max). When she’s not writing, she’s either scrapbooking or indulging in her second love (after writing) – traveling. Greece is one of her favorite places in the world. She loves that Athens is a big city with a small-town feel. The food, beaches and culture keep her going back as often as possible. She hopes to retire there one day so she can spend her days writing books on the beach.
Kat has been a working freelance writer for nearly 30 years. She sold her first article–a review of a rock concert–for $10 in 1985. Since then she’s been an entertainment journalist, waitress, bartender, legal assistant, food critic, magazine editor, substitute teacher, and sports writer. She also spent some time working at A & M Records in Los Angeles.
As you can guess from her series, the Las Vegas Sidewinders, Kat loves hockey. She is also a freelance hockey writer, covering her favorite team, the Florida Panthers, and any other teams that have an interesting story. The rest of the time, she writes novels: sexy, romantic fiction that she hopes makes you as happy as it makes her. There’s something enticing about hockey players and romance…

Review by Susan:

This is the fourth book in the series but can be read as a standalone, this book follows Sarah and best friends King and Wilder. Sarah has loved King and Wilder from afar for as long as she can remember, she went on a few dates with each of them but didn’t take it any further as she wants to explore her sexuality and doesn’t think King and Wilder would understand. King and Wilder both love Sarah and have been keeping their distance till she was old enough for them, feeling frustrated with her refusal they plan how to get her to take them seriously, then they see her at a BDSM club, it’s game on from their!

This is another scorching hot read in this series that’s NSFW! It’s another quick read but it’s long enough to cover the important bits and the story flows well. Characters from the previous books pop up but don’t overwhelm the story and help to enhance it. If you like a lot of steam with your story, this is definitely the series for you! Can’t wait to read the next book in this series.  4 Stars

Misadventures With A Rookie by Toni Aleo

MISADVENTURES_AvailableNowBANNER.jpg

Misadventures With A Rookie by Toni Aleo is the HOT HOCKEY romance you’ve been waiting for! AVAILABLE NOW!

Winning has always come naturally for stud ice hockey defenseman Gus “the Bus” Persson. On the ice or off, he’s never had any trouble scoring, racking up goals—and girls. As the best player in his rookie class and the number-one draft pick of the Malibu Suns, he’s taking his game to the next level and is justifiably full of swagger.

So why does one of the Suns’ ice girls treat him like he’s invisible?

Bo St. James doesn’t have time for rookie hotshots who think their gloves don’t stink. She knows them, she works with them, she trains them. It doesn’t matter that Gus Persson is the hottest newbie she’s ever seen. She knows his type. She’s got big plans of her own, and she’s not going to let some cocky rich kid athlete keep her from her goals.

But there’s a chemistry between them they cannot deny. A lust that burns so hot, it threatens to melt the very ice on which they make their livings. The game has changed for both of them. Together, can these two play to win?

Review by Susan:

I love this author so I jumped at the chance to get my hands on this, it doesn’t disappoint. The story follows Gus and Bo, she’s an ice girl and he’s a hockey player, Bo hates Gus but that makes him want her even more. Gus manages to get her to agree to a date, will he be able to break down her walls? Will she be able to see beneath his cocky exterior? You will have to read to find out!

This was a quick read for me, I read it in one sitting but I did struggle a bit at the beginning. The reason was Gus, there were times I loved him, yes he was a man whore, a one and done kinda guy, but he was lovable, but sometimes what came out of his mouth made me cringe. As the book goes on he gets better, a little bit swoon worthy and I was totally rooting for Bo to give him a chance by the end of the book. I totally got why Bo hated him, especially with her past, but I did think she was a bit hard on him at times, comparing him to her ex. I loved his parents, especially his mam she was really funny. This is another great read from this author.  4 Stars
