Title: Saving Me
Author: Sadie Allen
Genre: Mature YA Romance
Release Date: February 21, 2018
On the outside, Ally has everything any teenager could want. She’s beautiful, popular, and athletic. She has the right friends, an adoring boyfriend, and the picture-perfect family. 

Too bad it’s all a lie.

Every day she’s dying a little on the inside, drowning in everyone’s expectations and opinions, the weight of it all pulling her under. 

She wants to do the unthinkable … until a boy with shaggy hair, unusual eyes, and a lip ring changes her plans.

Review by Susan:
I have read a few books by this author and absolutely loved them so I had high expectations going into this book, it really doesn’t disappoint! I really was drawn in from the first page and spat out at the end, I read this in one sitting and was left with a huge book hangover. This book was full of twists and turns, some I really didn’t see coming! I laughed, cried, swooned and shouted at my kindle while reading this, I really was taken on an emotional roller coaster, which I have come to expect from this author. The story flows beautifully, it isn’t rushed, the reader is taken on a sweet, yet sad, journey that by the end of the book leaves you feeling uplifted and with a smile on your face.  This book stayed with me long after I finished it, another amazing read from this fabulous author.  5 Stars!

Renner’s Rules

by K. Webster
Publication Date: March 8, 2018
Genres: Taboo Treat

I’m a bad girl.
I was sent away.
New house. New rules. New school.
Change was supposed to be…good.

Until I met him.

No one warned me Principal Renner would be so hot.
I’d expected some old, graying man in a brown suit.
Not this.
Not well over six feet of lean muscle and piercing green eyes.
Not a rugged-faced, ax-wielding lumberjack of a man.

He’s grouchy and rude and likes to boss me around.
I find myself getting in trouble just so he’ll punish me.
Especially with his favorite metal ruler.

Being bad never felt so good.

DRIVING WHISKEY WILD by Melissa Foster

Synopsis

A captivating new sexy standalone romance by New York Times bestselling author Melissa Foster.

Special Forces veteran and Dark Knights Motorcycle Club member Bullet Whiskey lives to protect his family, their bar, and the residents of his small hometown. He’s rough, unapologetic, and haunted by a secret, painful past. He’s also a master at keeping people away, and when his sister hires gorgeous and sweet Finlay Wilson to help expand their biker bar, he knows just how to get rid of her.

After losing her boyfriend and her father, Finlay moves back to her hometown to be closer to the little family she has left. She needs her temporary job at Whiskey Bro’s to get her catering business off the ground, and she’s determined not to let the gruff, arrogant mountain of a man Bullet Whiskey scare her off.

Finlay is everything Bullet has never wanted. She’s afraid of his dog, afraid of motorcycles, and sweet enough to give him cavities, but as she weaves her way into the hearts of everyone around him, he’s powerless to resist her charms. Passion ignites, but trust doesn’t come easily, and when their pasts collide, Bullet finds out the true meaning of protecting those he loves.

Review by Victoria:

The most delicious Whiskey you’ve ever had is back! The Whiskey boys are back again and just like whiskey, they keep getting better with every taste.

But when you’re Finlay, trying to get back on your own two feet and established, a Whiskey man may be too much to take in at the same time. With Finlay’s history and luck with men, she’s wary to get involved with Bullet, the man who’s set his sights on her. She may seem like she holds all together but there’s pain beneath her cheery exterior.
Bullet, on the other hand, knows he wants her. Strong, handsome and all man, he carries a dark past he works hard to keep from others. When Finlay pushes back, she touches something he forgot he had.
But can their pasts come together and make them better or will it swallow them both?
I can never put a Whiskey man down! From start to finish, Bullet traps you in with his smooth words and delicious as sin body to match. In no time, you’ll be putty in his hands and begging Finlay to take a ride on the Bullet train! 5 stars

 

“Don’t fuck this up, Bullet, or I swear I’ll make your life a living hell. She’s agreed to work with us for a month, and we need her if we’re going to pull this off. She knows about menus, hiring kitchen staff, and health regulations.”

“She doesn’t belong in a place like this, Dix. She’s not like us.” Finlay looked like a frigging angel with her silky blond hair and innocent blue eyes. It was that innocence that had flipped some switch inside Bullet and made him want tosin her up and protect her at the same time. Fucking Finlay Wilson. The wedding was four weeks ago, and he hadn’t been able to stop thinking about her since. If she wasn’t starring in his X-rated fantasies, she was flitting about town in those frilly dresses she wore, spreading smiles like fairy dust.

“You didn’t seem to mind that when you hit on her at the wedding.” She arched a brow. “Or did you think I didn’t notice the way you were watching her every move when Bear and Crystal also decided to tie the knot? Sidling up to her every chance you got during the reception, like a puppy chasing a treat?”

Bullet scoffed. He’d been looking at her long before Crystal and Bear’s impromptu proposal and subsequent wedding the day Tru and Gemma got married. “She’s a hot chick. So what? I didn’t want to marry her—just have a little fun.”

“Then you shouldn’t mind seeing her in here for a few hours a day while we pull things together.”

“It’s a mistake, Dixie.” He moved around the bar and stood beside her. “A pretty little thing like her is just asking for trouble in a place like this. Why are you so hung up on hiring Finlay anyway? Did you even check with our club members to see if anyone needed a job?”

“You know, sometimes I forget that you have so much Dad in you, it’s like beating my head against a brick wall.”

“What the fuck does that mean?”

“That you’re as hesitant to hire outside the family as he is. That you think if someone’s not in the club or one of us, they can’t do shit.”

“Jed’s working here, isn’t he?”

Bear had recently given up bartending and was now designing motorcycles for the elite Silver-Stone Cycles. For the first time in the history of the bar, they’d been forced to hire outside the family and outside their motorcycle club, the Dark Knights, which was as solid as family. Although Jed Moon, who was not only their new part-time bartender but also worked as an auto mechanic for the shop, was Bear’s new brother-in-law. So technically, he was family. Finlay Wilson was not. Finlay Wilson was trouble waiting to happen.

“Give me a break.” He shook his head. “We always hire family first.”

“Yeah? Well, which of our club members do you think knows how to run a restaurant? Gutter, the home repair expert? Or maybe one of the Bando brothers, who pour concrete for a living? Do you realize Finlay went to one of the best culinary schools in Boston? She’s worked in a restaurant, and she’s run her own catering company for years, and soon she’ll be opening a catering company right here in town.”

He didn’t give a rat’s ass about her credentials. If anything, she was overqualified. But the thought of her flouncing around the bar with a bunch of horny, drunk guys going after her made Bullet’s blood boil. The fact that she was not his to worry about did not escape him. “We’re offering sandwiches and fries, not gourmet meals.”

“Which makes her the perfect person for this job. She knows how to keep costs down, and she’s from Peaceful Harbor. She’s putting down roots here, which means she’ll want to see the business do well—so it doesn’t reflect poorly on her. What do you have against Finlay, anyway?”

Against her? Nothing.” Though he’d like to be buried deep inside her. “But she’ll get eaten alive in a place like this and she’ll go cowering out the door. Then we’ll be left trying to figure shit out anyway. Besides—”

The creak of the front door opening drew their attention. Bullet looked over his shoulder, meeting the innocent blue eyes of the angel peeking in at them.

Break Down by Rebecca Norinne


Title: Break Down (Dublin Rugby #4)
Author: Rebecca Norinne
Cover Designer: Rebecca Norinne
Release Date: February 21, 2018


Blurb


He knows his place on the pitch, but life is a whole other game.

 
All his life, Liam Donnelly looked and wondered. Could he? Would he? And then, finally, he did. But when he sampled a taste of that forbidden fruit, his whole world came crashing down, his position with Dublin Rugby right along with it. When the chance to ply his trade in Edinburgh comes along, Liam jumps at the offer, knowing it could be his best opportunity to start fresh and get back to the man he once was. But one look at Chef Lachlan MacLeod-his knowing, whisky-colored eyes, the abrasive scruff dotting his jaw, and the colorful ink lining his forearms-and Liam’s wondering all over again. Can he? Will he? His heart says no, but his body says yes. 
 

He’s conquered his own demons; can he help another man do the same?


 
Out and proud Chef Lachlan MacLeod has no problem with who he is, except he has a history of hooking up with bi-curious straight men. He’s vowed never to go down that path again, but when Liam Donnelly shows up in his restaurant, his eyes filled with heat and secret longing, Lachlan can’t help himself. He knows the closeted rugby player is a terrible idea, but the man calls to him in a way no one ever has before. What started as a safe way for Liam to explore his sexuality quickly morphs into something much deeper, and now Lachlan wants more. But can his heart reconcile what his head already knows-that loving the gorgeous, broken athlete might actually mean letting him go?

Review by Susan:

This is the fourth book in this series but it could be read as a standalone, I love this series so I couldn’t wait to jump into this story, it doesn’t disappoint. I was hooked from the first page, I read it in one sitting, I literally couldn’t put this book down. The author has a way of drawing the reader in, the story is not rushed, it flows beautifully and leaves the reader wanting more. I loved Liam and Lachlan, they are both married to their careers, but they each see something in the other that makes them stop and notice the other. Liam is hiding who he truly is, having been blackmailed, he’s trying to keep his head down and out of trouble, but from the first meeting, he’s hooked on Lachlan. Lachlan is out and proud, he’s instantly attracted to Liam but doesn’t want to have to hide away, he gives Liam an ultimatum, will Liam be open about who he is? Will he walk away from Lachlan? Will Lachlan wait for him? You will have to read to find out!!

I was totally invested in these as a couple and was rooting for them to get their happy ever after, I’m pleased we got a small glimpse of past characters I loved catching up with them! This is a wonderful series, you don’t have to like rugby to fall in love with these characters, please give this series a go, you won’t be disappointed.  5 Stars

Title: Fresh Catch
Author: Kate Canterbary
Release Date: February 20, 2018

Blurb_

Take a vacation, they said. Get away from Silicon Valley’s back-stabbing and power-grabbing. Recharge the innovative batteries. Unwind, then come back stronger than ever.

Instead, I got lost at sea and fell in love with an anti-social lobsterman.

There’s one small issue:

Owen Bartlett doesn’t know who I am. Who I really am.

~~

I don’t like people.

I avoid small talk and socializing, and I kick my companions out of bed before the sun rises.

No strings, no promises, no problems.

Until Cole McClish’s boat drifts into Talbott’s Cove, and I bend all my rules for the sexy sailor.

I don’t know Cole’s story or what he’s running from, but one thing is certain:

I’m not letting him run away from me.

Review by Susan:

Wow, I loved this book, i don’t usually read m/m but I love this author so I gave it a go, I’m so pleased I did! As with her other books, the reader is drawn in from the start and taken on a journey full of twists and turns that leave you panting for more. I loved both Owen and Cole, they were polar opposites but opposites attract and they brought the best out in each other.  I loved Owens grumpiness, it was quite endearing! I loved that Cole mellowed our from the hot headed tech nerd he was. The chemistry between them is palpable from the beginning and sizzles the pages, there is a lot of panty melting encounters between the two that keeps you turning the pages. I loved that characters from a previous book pop up here, I loved the little cross over. This was another amazing read from this author, even if m/m is not your thing, please give this book a go, you won’t be disappointed.  5 Stars!

Bio_

Kate Canterbary doesn’t have it all figured out, but this is what she knows for sure: spicy-ass salsa and tequila solve most problems, living on the ocean–Pacific or Atlantic–is the closest place to perfection, and writing smart, smutty stories is a better than any amount of chocolate. She started out reporting for an indie arts and entertainment newspaper back when people still read newspapers, and she has been writing and surreptitiously interviewing people—be careful sitting down next to her on an airplane—ever since.

Kate lives on the water in New England with Mr. Canterbary and the Little Baby Canterbary, and when she isn’t writing sexy architects, she’s scheduling her days around the region’s best food trucks.

Review by Susan:

Wow, just wow, this book has totally blown me away! I loved this authors previous series, I think I’ve read it about a million times, so I couldn’t wait to get my hands on this book, it doesn’t disappoint. This book sucks you in from the first line and literally spits you out at the end, it starts off with a bang and continues on at an even faster pace. I was literally hanging on the edge of my seat while reading this, the twists and turns leave you breathless and wondering what will happen next. I absolutely adored Sarah, she is literally thrown in at the deep end and although she is scared, she does the right thing which leads her to meet Tom. I loved that we get to see a tough, career soldier who doesn’t do attachments get brought to his knees when he meets Sarah, the chemistry between them literally sizzles the pages! This book left me with a huge book hangover that had me thinking about it long after I finished reading it. This is my favourite book I’ve read this year, I hope we get more books in this series. I truly wish I could give it more than 5 stars.

 

Read an excerpt from CITY UNDER SIEGE

I was practically kneeling in front of the screen as I tried to understand what I was seeing. Men were shouting at one another, though their words were indecipherable.

The person filming darted out from behind a shipping container to take more shots. Everything was happening so fast, the camera moving wildly with the person it was attached to. Finally, I realised it was a body cam by the way it was flailing and jerking all over the place. I had no idea what shipyard they were in, but it made sense that the assault would be there rather than a boat. They would have wanted to take the terrorists after the handover happened, just to be sure.

A soldier came into shot across the way, crouched behind another container, and I guessed he was one of ours. Covered from head to toe, it was impossible to know who it was, but I held my breath anyway. The camera at least became steady as the gunfire slowly ebbed, though focused now on the last of the targets. In the periphery of the screen, the kneeling soldier leant further forward to take a shot when he was yanked sharply backwards in a move that literally saved his life. As the last shot rang out, sounding a death knell to the terrorists who’d been responsible for taking so many innocent civilian lives, the rest of the team seemed to realise what I already knew. The rescuer, the guardian angel who’d ripped his teammate away from the path of certain death, had exposed himself to make the ultimate sacrifice, saving his friend’s life at the expense of his own. Soldiers darted in front of the camera again, and a few more indistinguishable voices called out before the silence. The excruciating, insufferable, tormenting silence, broken only by the clear voice that cut through the darkness like a scythe, ripping a hole through my heart as it did.

“Man down.”

Review by Candy:

A must read! Lexi can bring the tears, the laughs, the heartache and also the happy ending. This was an amazing story of love bringing two people together by chance. Secrets and lies can destroy but they can change you as well.
Nicole is betrayed by her sister Veronica and fiancé to find out on her wedding day. Nicole runs away but with her sisters purse (good thing they’re identical twins). She ends up in the town her sister would’ve gone after her wedding. Ethan meets Nicole at his family owned bar and ends up walking her to her hotel cause she is a little drunk, but Ethan can’t seem to walk away even though he should. Turns out that Nicole has taken the place of her sister as a favor to Dr Jackson’s mom as Dr Jackson’s nanny and when she shows up at his door the shock is on both their faces. Will the lies that have started keep two people from the possibility of a relationship that starts to bloom?
Lexi you did a great job with the story of lies and secrets and depression. You give both sides of depression and how it can make or break a person. Your characters are all lovable except Marcus. Your words flow and keep the reader interested and wanting. I can’t wait to see who’s next in the series because you started it off great with Ethan and Nicole.  5 Stars!

Excerpt:

“Did somebody hurt you?” My gut knots with the question. You can’t save her, Ethan.

“You could say that.”

I step forward. Maybe that’s why she’s here on this impulsive visit to Jackson Harbor. Maybe she’s running from someone, escaping a home that’s not safe. “Do you have somewhere safe to go?”

“It’s not that kind of hurt,” she whispers. She swallows, and her gaze dips to my mouth. “Why are you so sad?”

Because you remind me of Elena. Because I couldn’t walk away from her either. “I’m just worried about you.” I don’t know if I step closer or if gravity pulls me that way, but in a breath, she’s at my fingertips and my thighs brush her knees.

“Will you do me a favor?” she asks, her attention still on my lips.

“What?”

“Will you kiss me?”

“Nic . . .” I wait for the excuses to find their way onto my tongue, but they don’t, and I realize I don’t want an excuse to walk away from her. My whole body is warm and my fingers itch to touch her. The only thing I want is my mouth on hers. I want to taste her joy and sadness. I want to know how it feels to have that body pressed against mine.

I’m silent a beat too long, and she winces. “Sorry.”

“Don’t be. It’s not that I don’t want to, but you’re vulnerable.”

“Are you always so noble?”

“If you think my thoughts are noble right now, you’re even more naïve than I feared.” I lean my forehead against hers. Christ. Who am I kidding? She’s asking me to do something I’ve been thinking about since I first laid eyes on her. I couldn’t deny her if I wanted to, and I don’t want to. Not even a little.

I cup her face in my hand and run my thumb along her jaw.

She slides a hand behind my neck. “I like the way you look at me. You make me feel sexy. Wanted.”

“Who made you feel like you weren’t?”

“A mistake.”

“Then he didn’t deserve you.” I lower my mouth to hers, telling myself the kiss will be brief, that I won’t get carried away. But then her other hand joins the first behind my neck, and her breasts press against my chest. Her thighs part, and I step between them in my instinctive need to be closer. A soft moan slips from her lips as our mouths connect.

This girl kisses like she does everything else—with unabashed emotion. She doesn’t hide a thing she’s feeling, and I’m hard even before her mouth opens under mine and our tongues sweep across each other.

I thread one hand into her hair and slide the other up her bare leg, my fingers curling into the flesh of her hip while my thumb strokes her inner thigh. Her skirt is bunched around her waist, and it would be so easy to follow this soft skin up and find her panties. She’s making the sexiest sounds, and I’m dying to touch her, to find out if she’s as turned on as she sounds, but I keep my hand where it is and give her the kiss she asked for. I offer the evidence that she’s sexy and desirable, no matter what some asshole made her think.
