Gails Review 


Surviving is not gonna cut it anymore. I survived for five years before I met you. It wasn’t enough.

If I could give more then 5 stars I so would. This is hands down one of my TOP reads for 2020 and most defiantly my favorite book from LJ. Shen!!

I’ll walk through fire for you.

West and Grace sucked me in and didn’t let me go, they are utter perfection. Both damaged and broken, West is your college bad boy, playboy, never sleeps with the same girl more then once.. but what made him that way? His story broke my heart.. even now thinking back on it I can feel my heart breaking again..

Grace was the popular girl who had it all.. the best of friends and a great boyfriend.. till she didn't. After a tragic accident leaves her scarred and broken.. how is she going to survive? Thankfully she still has Karlie (seriously love that girl)

This is emotional book for sure. Leigh broke my heart and very gently put it back together again... and I completely devoured this in 1 sitting!!

Off the Record ~ Chelle Sloan



Are you ready to meet your next favorite professional football team? Meet the Nashville Fury, a team that is just as hot on the field than they are off. 

Off the Record - Book 1 of the Nashville Fury series
Releasing: October 20
Preorder today on Amazon: https://geni.us/OTRAmazon

DESCRIPTION

Fans of the Nashville Fury come to me for all things regarding their favorite professional football team. Stats, rumors and even what the players like on their pizza. What they don’t turn to me for is information about how their offensive coordinator is in the bedroom. 

The answer? It’s too hot for print. 

My name is Sadie Benson and I committed the cardinal sin of being a female sports reporter: I fell in love with a coach.

And not just any coach. 

Hunter McAvoy. On track to become the youngest head coach in football history. And with one panty-melting smile, he made me realize there is more to life than work. 

It was the story I never saw coming. 

We both know this is wrong. We both know we should stay away. We know that if our relationship becomes public, it could ruin everything we have spent our entire lives working for. 

It’s a chance we are both willing to take.

Decadent ~ Eva Charles

Blurb

Singular tastes. That's what the Wilders are known for. I’m no exception.
The world sees me as nothing more than a hedonistic pretty boy. But not everything is as it appears.

One thing is certain. I'm a man who knows no boundaries.
With no soul and no conscience, I'm free to take what I want.
Including a deadly covert agent with a sassy mouth and an angelic smile.

She doesn't know it yet, but when Delilah shed her web of lies, she waltzed into mine.
Now I’m free to enjoy her as I please.

Excerpt

“What are we going to do about the little lapse tonight?” he murmurs. 

My brain is in a fog. Between his sexy mouth and those hands—I’m a muddled mess. “What little lapse?” 

“The one where I told you to go upstairs and you defied me.” His tone has a roguish edge that makes my heart skip a beat. 

“I guess you’ll have to punish me.” 

Gray wraps my hair around his hand, tipping my head back and leaving my neck exposed. “I don’t punish grown women unless it’s part of a scene.” He runs his tongue along my throat until he reaches my ear. His teeth sink into the lobe, making me shudder. “I dole out consequences for behavior, good and bad. Everything we do, or fail to do, has a consequence. Human behavior is shaped by our willingness to bear the consequences.” 

“It sounds complicated. Maybe you can show me what you mean.” 

The edge of his mouth curls. “You just bought yourself another consequence, Blue Eyes. Let’s go inside.”

Author Bio


A confirmed city-girl, Eva moved to rural Western Massachusetts in 2014. She found herself living in the woods with no job, no friends (unless you count the turkey, deer, and coyote roaming the backyard), and no children underfoot, wondering what on earth she had been thinking. But as it turned out, it was the perfect setting to take all those yarns spinning in her head and weave them into steamy love stories. 

A romantic at heart, Eva looks forward to date night all week. The perfect evening includes well-crafted cocktails, a fabulous perfume, Cherry Garcia ice cream, and her husband, of course. If you add good friends, live jazz, and impossible shoes, she will follow you anywhere. 

Eva holds a BA from Boston College, and a JD from the Washington College of Law. She spent a career working in domestic violence, child abuse and neglect, and civil rights. Aspects of this work often find their way into her books. 

When she's not writing sexy stories, trying to squeeze information out of her tight-lipped sons, or playing with the two cutest dogs you've ever seen, Eva's creating chapters in her own love story.

Risking it all ~ Isabel Lucero




Title: Risking it All
Series: Kingston Brothers #4
Author: Isabel Lucero
Genre: M/M Rockstar Romance
Release Date: September 24, 2020


BLURB

Ten years ago, I kissed my best friend.

Six years ago, my life changed and I went from being an unknown kid from a small town to a world-renowned rock star. Before leaving Gaspar, I told Ali we’d still be together. I made promises I didn’t keep, and I lied over and over again. I threw our plans out the window and made a life for myself.

I’ve barely had time to go home, because touring keeps me away. We haven’t been in touch in years, but after this tour, I’m heading home to find the only person who knows my deepest, darkest secret, and beg for forgiveness.

Ten years ago, I kissed my best friend, and his name is Alejandro Barerra. My Ali.

He may never forgive me for the broken promises or for breaking his heart, and I’m afraid he’ll never want to talk to me again, but he’s the only one who knows the real me, and I’m determined to win him back. Even if it means risking it all.

EXCERPT

“Why me?” 
He furrows his brows. “What do you mean?” 
“Why do you want me?” 
“Have you not heard what I’ve told you?” he asks, taking a step forward. 
“You’ve said I’m everything to you. Yeah, I heard that.” 
“But,” he offers, knowing I have more to say. 
I drop my arms and grip the edge of the dresser. “But those are just words. We’ve said a lot to each other over the years. You’ve consistently told me one thing just to do something that completely contradicts it. Why should I believe you now? Or ever?” 
“I’m trying to get you to realize I’m not like that anymore. If I say something, I want you to believe it. I’ve had years to dwell on my bullshit. I’ve had so many regrets, and honestly, if I was in your shoes, I don’t know if I’d forgive me. But you’re better than me, Ali. You always have been, and you make me want to be better. For you.” 
My heart sings at his words, but I can’t allow myself to be naive. “Let’s pretend I tell you that I forgive you for everything and that you do have a chance. Then what? This is the problem we always had. I let you suck me back into a secret relationship because you weren’t out yet, and that’s still the case. I will not be a skeleton in your closet. I will not be forced to love you in secret.” 
He takes the remaining steps to reach me, wrapping his hands around mine. “Tell me I have a chance, Ali. Tell me you’d give us one last shot and I’ll risk it all. I’ll risk everything for you. For us.”

When Blair Beaufort literally crashes into Bellamy Creek wearing a ball gown and a tiara, I should have towed her car, said goodnight, and sent her packing.


I’m a mechanic, not a hotel manager. I've got enough on my plate trying to keep my shop from going under, my overbearing mother off my back, and my baseball team in contention for the league championship. I don’t have time for a former debutante with zero street smarts and a cash flow problem, even if she is crazy beautiful.


Problem is, she’s stranded in my small town, and I’m hiding a protective streak underneath my broody exterior that runs deep. So I offer her a place to stay and keep my hands to myself.


For exactly one night.


If only she weren't so gorgeous. So funny. So eager to please. She’s a disaster behind the wheel, but she drives me wild without even trying--at work, at home, in the back of my truck . . . I can’t get enough of the way she makes me feel.


But I know better than to think it can last. She wants a fairy tale, and I’m no prince.


So when it comes time for her to leave, there’s nothing I can do but let her go.


No matter how much it hurts to say goodbye.



 

Raiden ~ A.M. Hargrove




Title: Raiden
Series: Kent Brothers #2
Author: A.M. Hargrove
Genre: Standalone Contemporary Romance
Release Date: September 24, 2020



BLURB

Raiden Kent. Wealthy. Possessive. Commanding. 

To say his intense reaction to Scottie Sullivan barging into his life shocked him was an understatement. 

Shrewd, savvy, confident, the former DEA agent ran circles around him in cyber security, his specialty. 

Her curves and beauty made focusing on business absurd. 

Raiden couldn’t predict Scottie would be his guardian angel in disguise, or how badly he needed her protection. 

The day she saved his life made that clear. 

Now he had to choose if having Scottie by his side was worth the angst she created. 

Could he handle the constant threats hanging over her head each time she strode out the door? 

Would her insistence on playing hero be their destruction? 

Raiden recognized one thing. 

A strong, independent woman like Scottie would never be dictated to. 

He had a choice to make that would change everything.

Genre: Contemporary Romance
Cover Design: Jena Brignola
Release Date: October 13, 2020



Blurb

They just stood there. Watching me drown. Not one hand reached out to save me. So I quit looking for someone to grab onto and let the water take me.

I thought this part of my life was over. Even though the restraining order against my father expired years ago, I wasn’t expecting him to show up in my life again. I had no idea the mysterious man that stands at the river’s edge would be the one to defend me. After one night in Everest’s protection, the idea was for us to go our separate ways. Instead, my life gets turned upside down and now I want more than just his safety. I want his scarred heart, too. 


Don’t make other people’s problems your own. I learned long ago to keep my head down and my eyes pointed at the road ahead. But trying to ignore the beautiful woman at the park isn’t just difficult. It’s impossible. When I find out she’s in danger, not only do I make her problem mine, keeping her safe becomes my priority. Falling for Danielle wasn’t part of the plan. And now, it could take me down faster than any undertow.
