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

Review by Susan:

The first book I read by this author was on my list of best reads of 2017 so I had high hopes for this, it definitely does not disappoint!! I was hooked from the first page and spat out at the end! The story follows CIA agent Lucia Rizzo, her op is to find out who the navy seal mole is, the job is stateside so even better, what she isn’t expecting is to have to work with an ex Tony, or the sexy Gabe wilcox who turns her world upside down!

This book had me on the edge of my seat the whole way through, there are loads of twists and turns that keep you turning the pages, just when you think you have it figured out, there’s another twist. The heat between rizzo and Gabe is seriously off the charts, it literally sizzles the pages. I loved the banter between Rizzo, Gabe and Tony, at times it has you laughing out loud. Rizzo is the perfect combination of sass, Witt, charm with a side of kick ass that keeps the boys in line!

This really is an incredible read that will have you on tender hooks and keep you guessing right till the end, the story and characters will stay with you long after you have finished reading and leave you with a huge book hangover! 5 Stars!

Author Bio
I live in Dallas but I am not a Texan by birth, I am a transplant from Tennessee and married a true Texan so I had to stay. We live in a older home in Dallas proper with our son and goldendoodle (who is roughly the size of a pony).
 
Writing isn’t my day job, however it is my joy and favorite hobby. I enjoy sending my friends new chapters nightly and hearing their reactions the next day. That is why I write, being published is just a bonus really. My real job is the same every day, but at night I get to be someone else and write about all these fun adventures and sexcapades:) When I’m writing you can find me on the couch, earbuds in and a full glass of wine beside me. Music inspires my stores, at the end of each book I list the playlist that helped me through writing the novel.
 
When I am not working or writing, I am reading. I go through about 3 books a week and I am 100% sure that I’m that annoying person at book-club that gets on to people when they are not keeping up with the monthly readings or suggest the movie is as good as a book (Sometimes I wish I could vote those people out of book-club like they do on Survivor. “The tribe has spoken”).
 
My favorite authors that inspire my writing are: Colleen Hoover, Sarah J. Maas, Sandra Brown, and Rainbow Rowell.

Review by Susan:

This is the third book in the series but can be read as a standalone, this is the first book I’ve read by this author and what a read it was! I was hooked from the first page and spat out at the end, it was a quick read for me but the story flows well and covers the important bits without feeling rushed. This was a seriously sexy and panty melting hot read that is NSFW! The story is told in multiple points of view and it follows cricket Sutton, Archer and Lee, they have one wild night together, in the morning cricket sneeks out leaving the men wanting more. A year later Archer stops cricket for speeding, realising she’s the woman they have been looking for he takes her to Steele ranch to meet the others, you will have to read to find out what happens next!

There is some drama that happens outside the bedroom which keeps you turning the pages, you get to catch up with previous couples which helps to enhance the story. Overall this was a quick, seriously hot read that I highly recommend, I’m now off to read the previous books.

Penalty Play by Jami Davenport

Opposites attract…are you ready for the heat?
Penalty Play by Jami Davenport IS NOW AVAILABLE!
Keep reading for an excerpt!!

Single dad and star defenseman Matt LaRue lives for his kids and hockey. He’s had one failed marriage and doesn’t have any interest in going through that hell again. As conservative as they come, he can’t comprehend his unexplainable attraction to a free-spirited female who changes hair color more often than his boys create new excuses to avoid doing their homework.

Violet Strider is fleeing the past. She has a new start, new identity, and is hiding a big secret. Matt and Vi are a classic case of opposites attract, but neither expects the attraction to extend beyond a few hot trysts, especially Vi. Only her heart isn’t listening, and her head is following her heart down a path of no return. As Vi grows closer to Matt and his boys, she fears her secret could rip them apart.

Relationships are built on trust, and Vi’s house of cards is about to take a tumble. Can Vi confront her past and finally put it behind her, while earning Matt’s forgiveness?

EXCERPT:

Matt LaRue had no choice but to make a deal with the devil.

A sexy, purple-haired, tattooed devil who could make his life a living hell. Strike could, and insert had and would.

Matt lived his life by a few simple principles: Never lie or cheat. Be the best person you can be. And only associate with people of the highest ethical standards. After all, he had his boys to consider. And he had an ex-wife who lacked those basic principles. He should’ve known better, and he swore he’d never make the same mistake twice. The next woman he dated would be beyond reproach, which was why his latest dilemma sucked donkey balls.

Yet what choice did he have?

Matt would do anything for his boys, including beg Violet Strider to babysit for an evening. After all, it was just an evening. She’d take good care of them, even if she pissed him off with the simple act of being in the same room.

Vi did not meet his standards in the appearance department. She had purple or pink hair and more tattoos than the entire Sockeyes team combined. He was conservative and picky, and she had a tendency toward being flighty and a free spirit. What’s more in Matt’s estimation, the free spirit label was an excuse to be irresponsible.

Vi was irresponsible—

And fucking hot.

And incredibly sexy.

She brought out the bad boy he’d long ago squelched. And he hated that bad boy. He was a father and a role model, not a man-whore. Not that he’d ever been much of a man-whore, but he’d raised his share of hell in his earlier days. Now he was thirty-four and older and wiser. He needed a wife and a mother for his boys, not a fling.

But, damn, he wanted to have one with Vi, which made no sense at all.

They’d shared one kiss in his kitchen, one long, hot, deep kiss weeks ago. After that, they’d both pretended it’d never happened, which was fine with him. Except that it had, and he couldn’t forget how her mouth felt against his, all wet and needy and demanding. He wanted to—

Fuck.

His doorbell rang, and his boys just about knocked him down getting to it.

“Vi’s here!” Andy, his oldest at seven, reached the door first and yanked it open, ignoring all the lectures Matt had given them about not opening the door before you know who’s on the other side. He sighed. Sometimes he felt he was beating his head against a brick wall.

“Vi! Vi! Vi!” Joey, his youngest at five, jumped up and down with that pure, unadulterated joy only kids could have, and his son’s enthusiasm made Matt smile. There’d been a time when neither boy had behaved that way. In those dark times after their mother deserted them, they’d been quiet and sullen. Thank God, they’d gotten past the stage of missing their mother, and so had he. None of them had seen the woman in close to three years, which was sad and tragic when he allowed himself to think about how callously she’d abandoned them.

Matt hung back and swallowed hard as a jolt of uncontrollable lust rushed to his groin. Vi stood in the doorway with a sassy grin on her beautiful face. He attempted to concentrate on how she wore too much makeup for his taste, how her clothes were too tight, and how her body was covered in too much ink. Vi didn’t do classy or toned down. Vi did in your face and take me or leave me, this is who I am.

This time her hair was purple, a deep, dark purple like the flowers that grew in his grandmother’s garden in late spring.

His gaze dropped from her pouty, bright red lips, to the bouquet of pink and red roses peeking out from her scoop-neck, long-sleeved T-shirt. Her breasts had to be inked, too. In fact, he wondered if her entire body was. Guessing by the few glimpses he’d had of that curvy body, she was inked head to foot.

Holy shit.

He was getting hard, and in front of his boys. Not that they’d notice. They were inundating Vi with questions. She just smiled down at them nervously as if they were aliens who’d dropped from the sky and didn’t speak the language. Vi out of her comfort zone was incredibly sexy.

He ran a hand through his short-cropped hair and bit back a groan.

“You’re late,” he growled, masking his lust with irritation.

“Not by much.” She grinned, now amused and not even a tiny bit sorry.

PENALTY_TEASER1.jpg

Review by Susan:

This is the ninth book in the series but can be read as a standalone. This story follows Matt and Violet, Matt is a single dad to two boys, his ex was only interested in his money and fame and walked away leaving the three behind. Now he’s looking for love but only with someone who is loyal, dependable and will love his boys. Violet is a free spirit who loves to dance and is stripping to pay her way through college, when the two meet, sparks fly but only through their mutual hate of each other. What happens when opposites attract? Can they overcome their dislike of each other and give in to the sexual chemistry between them? You will have to read to find out!

I loved Matt, he was devoted to his boys and wasn’t a player like some of his teammates. I liked him even more when he gave up a bit control and went with the flow regarding his feelings towards Violet. Violet was sassy and strong, she was also unapologetic about who she was and her job. She was confident in her skin and took no crap from anyone! This book hooked me from the beginning, there’s a few stories going on in the background so I hope we get to read their stories soon. 4 Stars

All of You All of Me by Claudia Burgoa

 

unnamed (31).jpg
Title: All of You All of Me
Author: Claudia Burgoa
Genre: Adult Contemporary
Release Date: August 9, 2017

 

Blurb
One heinous tragedy changed my entire family forever. 
That morning, my world crumbled. I lost my parents. 
Now, I live by certain rules.
Don’t let anyone know what goes on inside your head.
Stay away from crowds. 
Never fall in love.
  
Though, that was until her. She has me
questioning everything. 
It’s the haunted eyes. 
The sultry voice. 
The sweetness under her armor.
Everything about her captivates me. The surge of energy we
create with one touch has me searching for her, even when there’s also
something dark underneath her bright smile. 
Unable to resist the desire toward her, I break my rules
giving her all of me while expecting all of her.
Review by Christine:

All of You All of Me by Claudia Burgoa is an emotional tale of love and loss between two broken souls. We were first introduced to Willow & Hudson in Claudia’s short story “How We Met” in the Love Happens anthology and now we follow their journey.

Both Willow & Hudson have their struggles and I was so happy that this wasn’t a cookie cutter romance where they heal each other just by being together. Gut-wrenching, poetic and beautifully imperfect but leaving me wanting more of these broken characters trying to find a path. The supporting characters are just as strong and I hope we get to see more of their stories in the future. Claudia has created a beautiful non-traditional original romance that I won’t soon forget. 5 Big Apple Stars for All of You All of Me by Claudia Burgoa
