Jude

by Kelsie Rae

 

 

Genre: Contemporary Romance

Series: Signature Sweethearts; Book 3

 

 

 

When Jude is offered the position of assistant coach to an online gaming championship, he’d be a fool to turn it down. But when his celebrity crush ends up being on the team, he decides to teach her a lot more than a few gaming tricks.

 

Quin doesn’t date. Being the breadwinner since she was sixteen will do that to a girl. So when the sexy new British coach shows up, she refuses to be distracted. She has goals, and she will achieve them. No matter the cost.

 

But is she willing to lose the only thing that matters to her in order to do so?

4 Stars!

Have you read Kelsie Rae yet? If yes, then you know you’re going to love this. If no, then dive in, because this third book from one of my new faves is absolutely fabulous! I am seriously in awe of Ms. Rae!

Jude, best friend of Derrick from Breezy, has his HEA in the aptly titled Jude. Jude is a sexy Brit and you can’t help but love him. Quincy is a female gamer who has a complicated home life and faces sexism in her world of gaming. Q is asked to join a competitive gaming team which just so happens to be coached by Jude, a former world champion gamer. But these two were aware of each other before they become teammates. Sparks fly immediately.

This was a fun story to read. It features a different world from most NA and contemporary romances, which I found fun and refreshing. Sure, it’s a romance at heart, but with the different world we are treat to a different type of secondary character. I liked the new and different. My only real criticism is the one chapter from the POV of a secondary character to set up the next book. I understand why it was there but it sort messed with the flow of Jude and Quincy’s story. Otherwise, I loved this!

About the Author


Kelsie is a sucker for a love story with all the feels and enjoys a solid chick flick, too. When she’s not chasing words for her next book, you will probably find her reading or, more likely, playing with her “monsters”.

She adores chocolate, photography, baking, and running. And now that she’s actively pursuing her writing dreams, she’s set her sights on someday finding the self-discipline to not eat an entire batch of cookies in one sitting.

 Quesarasera Book Blog Review

5 Stars!!!

I savored this book like a fine wine. This was one of my most highly anticipated reads of the year and longer. I have been dying for Booker and Karsen’s story since their characters were introduced. When I finally got my hands on it I devoured it slowly absorbing each and every word.

Crownover did not disappoint with Respect. She gave Booker the heart and soul he so deserved. Karsen was the kick butt heroine I knew she would be and more! Together, these two became everything I wanted them to be.

This series has been one of my all time favorites and I love that Crownover waited to write Booker and Karsen’s story because it was just fitting. She gave them the HEA they deserved.

The Point is an amazingly dark and intriguing world and Respect was my favorite of the series!

About RESPECT:

Once upon a time, there was a beautiful princess who called a corrupt kingdom home sweet home.

Protected and sheltered from the worst the world had to offer, she fell in love with the crumbling city that burned and blazed around her. Every dirty corner, every scary shadow, found a place within her heart. So did a man who was violent and dangerous, just like the streets she claimed as her own.

He was all business and brutality, except when it came to her. With her, he was calm, caring, and heartbreakingly patient.

He warned her over and over that he wasn’t the man for her, but she refused to listen. She never expected either the streets or their enforcer to hurt her, since she’d given her heart so completely to both.

She should have known the streets in the Point were always going to be savage, and so was the man committed to keeping control of them in the hands of criminals and bloody kingpins.

Blindsided by a betrayal which cut so deeply she was sure the wounds would never heal, the princess fled the home she loved and the man who broke her heart. Throwing away her rusted, twisted crown was supposed to help her forget. All it did was make her long for everything she left behind. She told herself she would never go back, but in this tormented kingdom, family is everything. Eventually, she has no choice but to return.

While she was gone, the people who loved her worked hard to make the city safe, and the man who destroyed her sank deeper into the darkness. Going back shouldn’t feel like surrender… but it does. As this pretty princess hovers on the edge of the unknown, the past attacks with a vengeance. It’s a good reminder that puppy love eventually grows up and turns into something with sharp teeth and one hell of a bite.

She never asked for the keys to the kingdom. She’d much rather go out and build her own.

~Karsen~

I had no plans to leave the Point. It was ugly, mean, hard, and unforgiving, but these streets were home and I couldn’t imagine being happy anywhere else. This place had long since made my hands and the edges of my soul dirty. It was something I would be hard-pressed to hide should I go anywhere else. I’d have to spend my days trying to camouflage the filth I was so familiar with. Here, no one looked twice at the pretty teenager with shadows in her eyes and blood on her hands. I was one of many.

I wasn’t interested in leaving behind my sister or her fiancé, Race. We were an odd, dysfunctional family, but we made it work.

I didn’t want to be too far away from my mother, who was living in a group home as she slowly, painfully tried to recover from her alcoholism and PTSD from an accident she caused that ended up taking the life of a young mother and her child.

But more than anything, I absolutely didn’t want to leave him.

I couldn’t imagine a day going by without catching a glimpse of Noah Booker. I mean, he was impossible to miss. Six-and-a-half-feet tall, body built like a professional athlete, dark and brooding with the prettiest gunmetal-gray eyes, he was the entirety of every one of my teenage fantasies. I barely noticed the jagged scar dividing one side of his face. White and raised, it cut one of his black eyebrows in half, slashed over a high cheekbone, and ended somewhere under the chiseled edge of his hard jaw. He never talked about it, but Race, Booker’s boss, let it slip that Booker got the scar when he was locked up. Or maybe it wasn’t as much of a slip-up as a thinly veiled warning. Race never kept it much of a secret that my infatuation with his massive, dangerous, ex-con enforcer made him extremely uncomfortable. He’d warned me over and over again that Booker wasn’t for me. And he’d made it clear to the man who broke knees and smashed heads for a living that he was to stay as far away from me as possible.

They called it puppy love. It wasn’t.

To me, it was a vicious kind of love, filled with teeth and claws that I could feel digging at my insides every single time someone patted me on the head and told me how young I was, how much life I had yet to live. This love was rabid, and I was tired of having it on a leash. I wanted to let it free, wanted to let it sink its razor-sharp fangs into the man who had awoken the primal need inside of me. It was only fair he felt the same kind of crushing bite and painful pressure around his heart that I did every single day.

I was solely focused on getting to Booker. It barely registered I was done with high school and had new doors opening all around me. I couldn’t care less about getting my hands on my diploma. A piece of paper with Karsen Carter written on it in pretty calligraphy meant exactly nothing to me. The only thing I was focused on was the fact I was finally old enough to make my own choices. And I’d always picked Booker. Over and over again he was my number one priority.

New Release ~ Tiffany Blues by M. J. Rose

NYT bestselling author, M. J. Rose crafts a dazzling Jazz Age jewel–a novel of ambition, betrayal, and passion with TIFFANY BLUES. TIFFANY BLUES is now available! Check out the excerpt below, and pick up your copy of TIFFANY BLUES today!

TIFFANY BLUES Synopsis:

New York, 1924. Twenty‑four‑year‑old Jenny Bell is one of a dozen burgeoning artists invited to Louis Comfort Tiffany’s prestigious artists’ colony. Gifted and determined, Jenny vows to avoid distractions and romantic entanglements and take full advantage of the many wonders to be found at Laurelton Hall.

But Jenny’s past has followed her to Long Island. Images of her beloved mother, her hard-hearted stepfather, waterfalls, and murder, and the dank hallways of Canada’s notorious Andrew Mercer Reformatory for Women overwhelm Jenny’s thoughts, even as she is inextricably drawn to Oliver, Tiffany’s charismatic grandson.

As the summer shimmers on, and the competition between the artists grows fierce as they vie for a spot at Tiffany’s New York gallery, a series of suspicious and disturbing occurrences suggest someone knows enough about Jenny’s childhood trauma to expose her.

Supported by her closest friend Minx Deering, a seemingly carefree socialite yet dedicated sculptor, and Oliver, Jenny pushes her demons aside. Between stolen kisses and stolen jewels, the champagne flows and the jazz plays on until one moonless night when Jenny’s past and present are thrown together in a desperate moment, that will threaten her promising future, her love, her friendships, and her very life.

EXCERPT:

March 13, 1957
Laurelton Hall, Laurel Hollow
Oyster Bay, New York

Once the present turns to past, all we have left are memories. Yes, sometimes we can stand where we stood, see our ghost selves, and relive moments of our life. See the shadow of the man we loved. Of the friend we cherished. Of the mentor who made all the difference. Our memories turn specific. The terrier that played by the shoreline, joyously running in the sand. We can remember the smell of the roses. Look at the azure water and see the glimmer of the sun on the opposite shore and hear a fleeting few bars of jazz still lingering in the air.

If you were the only girl in the world… Staring into the remains of what is left, I see ghosts of the gardens and woods, the gazebo, terraces, rooms ablaze with stained glass—everywhere we walked and talked and kissed and cried. With my eyes closed, I see it all in my mind, but when I open them, all of it is gone, up in flames.

Mr. Tiffany once told me that there is beauty even in broken things. Looking back, there is no question I would not be the artist I am if not for that lesson. But would he be able to salvage any beauty out of this destruction?

No, I never dreamed I’d come back to Laurelton Hall. The Xanadu where I came of age as both a woman and a painter. Where I found my heart’s desire and my palette’s power. Where depravity bloomed alongside beds and fields of flowers, where creativity and evil flowed with the water in the many fountains. Where the sun shone on the tranquil sea and the pool’s treacherous rock crystals reflected rainbows onto the stone patio. Where the glorious light streaming from Mr. Tiffany’s majestic stained glass illuminated the very deep darkness that had permeated my soul and lifted me out of despair. And where I found the love that sustained me and remained in my heart even after Oliver and I parted.

Standing here, smelling the acrid stench, looking at the felled trees with their charcoal bark, the carbon-coated stones and bent metal frames that once held the master’s windows, at the smoky, melting mess that was one of the greatest mansions on Long Island’s Gold Coast, I know I never will see it again, not how it was that magical and awful summer of 1924.

The fire is still hot in spots, and a tree branch snaps. My reverie is broken. Leaves rustle. Rubble falls. Glass crushes. Twigs crack. Then comes a whisper.

Jenny.

But it can’t be. The wind howling through a hollow tree trunk is playing a trick. Fooling me into thinking I am hearing his sapphire voice, its deep velvet tone.

As I listen to the repeated whisper—Jenny—I raise my hand to wipe at my tears and tell myself that it is the smoldering ash making my eyes water. The charms on my bracelet jingle as I lower my arm. And again the whisper… and again my name—Jenny.

“A lush, romantic historical mystery…a heroine to root for.” –Kristin Hannah, NYT bestselling author of The Nightingale

New Release ~ Mixed Up Love by Natasha Madison!

Hunter

When my business partner asked me to do him a favor, I had no idea he was sending me on a blind date his mother arranged for him. I walked in the bar, saw the woman drinking her third martini, and knew I was in for an eventful night.

After the unexpected second date, she didn’t know my real name or who I really was. By that time, the lie was too far gone, and I wanted her too much to admit the truth.

Laney

It’s not every day you find out your ex-boyfriend is engaged.

I shouldn’t have agreed to the blind date. My mother insisted, and I wasn’t in any position to turn down a night out.

I will admit, I definitely shouldn’t have ordered that fourth martini before said blind date even arrived.

The man turned out to be swoon worthy, handsome, condescending—a perfect distraction. Then I found out he was a liar.

I’ve never been in over my head to this degree.

Then again, I’ve never been in love.

Barnes & Noble | iBooks

When her nose isn’t buried in a book, or her fingers flying across a keyboard writing, she’s in the kitchen creating gourmet meals. You can find her, in four inch heels no less, in the car chauffeuring kids, or possibly with her husband scheduling his business trips. It’s a good thing her characters do what she says, because even her Labrador doesn’t listen to her…

Waiting for Her, an all-new emotional, standalone second chance romance from Jennifer Van Wyk is LIVE!

Waiting For Her_5x8 Paperback

Our relationship was such a cliché.

Friends to lovers. High school sweethearts.

Then… driven by insecurities, I broke Grady Ryan’s heart.

I was weak, afraid to love, and even more afraid to be loved.

There are secrets I’ve kept buried but I can’t forget what we once shared.

I’ve been given a second chance and this time, I’m prepared to fight for him.

After six long years of silence, Bri Jameson is back in my life.

I never expected to see her again, especially not to share in the biggest opportunity of my career.

When she walks toward me across my football field, I can’t stop my heart from racing.

But time hasn’t stopped me from knowing her – and I know she’s hiding something.

I can only hope whatever it is doesn’t ruin me.

I’ve finally moved on and I won’t fall into her trap again.

I wish I could tell my heart the same thing – it’s just been waiting for her.

Here’s To Series

Book 1 – Here’s To Tomorrow

4 Stars!

This single dad romance is sure to make you swoon!

Hudson is a single dad. He meets Rae, who he feels an instant attraction to, but he can’t let himself up open to love. Rae is a recent colelge gradudate who is feeling the pressures of finding a “real” job, keeping her family and friends happy, and living her life. There is instant attraction from the moment they meet and speaking of meeting, their meet cute is super cute.

I enjoyed this book a lot. The story was sweet and sexy. Rae and Hudson are both fun characters with a ton of heart. The book introduces secondary characters to the series that are a lot of fun. I liked that the book truly comes full circle with the mystery surrounding Rae’s nightmares.

A good read and great start to a series!

Book 1.5 – Here’s To Forever

4 Stars!

A sweet, fun novella that wraps up Rae and Hudson’s HEA. There were some really great LOL moments and some missteps that will only endear you further to Hudson.
Must be read after Here’s To Tomorrow!!!

Book #2 – Here’s To Yesterday

4 Stars!!

If you haven’t read books 1 and 1.5, I recommend reading those firsts to avoid spoilers. Also, to avoid spoilers, I will keep this review short and sweet.

Here’s To Yesterday is a complicated romance between a woman who is dating one brothers, but has real feelings for the other. The book is split into two parts, HER, from the heroine’s perspective, and HIM, told from the hero’s perspective. I wasn’t sure how I would feel about this. I love the 1st person POV and I enjoy alternating POVs, but this was different from that, but it worked nicely. The H and h’s romance is complicated, angsty and it takes time to work out, but dont’ fret, they get their HEA at the end of the book!

Book 3 – Here’s To Now

4.5 Stars!

I knew, like really knew Gaige’s book was going to be my favorite, but I just didn’t know why. Now, that I’ve read it, I can say for sure, this book is so great! Gaige and Haley were unexpected and blew me away!

Gaige is complicated and he is holding on to a huge burden. I felt for him every second of the book. I rooted for him to finally let go and get the HEA he deserved. I thought Haley was unexpectedly great. I knew from book 1 that she was a great secondary character, but I wasn’t sure how Hunter would develop her enough to give her her own chance at being the heroine. Haley is also struggling with guilt. These two finally find their HEA in each other and it is much deserved and it is a great story to get them there.

SEXY SINGLE DAD ROMANCE!

HUDSON
When I became a single father at seventeen, I knew my path wasn’t going to be easy. Hell, sometimes it sucked. Year after year, I tirelessly busted my ass until my business was booming. Until my daughter was happy. Until life? It was good. Settled.

But sometimes being settled is overrated. Boring. Especially when a little excitement walks through my door in the shape of Rae Kamden. With her sarcastic mouth and smartass comebacks, she’s the type of girl still sowing her wild oats and not looking to settle. Not with a guy like me.

RAE
I’ve been stuck in this small town since I was a child and nothing is going to keep me here. Not anymore. Done being tied down, I’m out of here the first chance I get. This town can kiss my ass goodbye.

I’m twenty-two. Single. Unwilling to settle. But if I did? It wouldn’t be with Hudson Tamell.

So explain to me why the moment he looks up from under the hood of my car, the sarcastic replies on my lips come out sounding sweeter. Why does he make me want to settle down, right here, with him?

That’s not what I wanted. But maybe it’s what I need.

I’ve been living in a blissful bubble for nearly a year now. Everything with Rae is perfect, and I feel like we’re on the fast track to forever.

Then I go and do something stupid and suddenly we’re speeding toward Splitsville. Well, to be fair, I’ve been doing something stupid. I just haven’t had the balls to tell her about it.

It could break us. Or make us stronger. I’m only hoping she sees things my way…

RAE
I never anticipated my life looking like it does, living with my boyfriend and his eight-year-old daughter. But here I am, happier than I could have ever imagined.

Until Hudson screws it all up, telling lie after lie after freakin’ lie. But he thinks he’s “doing the right thing”. He doesn’t see things my way…

How am I supposed to say yes to forever when I can’t even trust my tomorrow?

Maybe this was all a mistake…

Book Blurb:

You’re not supposed to fall in love with your boyfriend’s brother…

HER
My entire life has been “perfect” for as long as I can remember. A loving family, a boyfriend who adores me, and anything I wanted, I got. But it was all a lie, a façade. My family isn’t loving, my boyfriend is more interested in my body than my mind, and it turns out money can’t buy happiness.

I’ve felt lost and stuck for far too long. Then, everything changed when I was least expecting it. It wasn’t supposed to happen.

Not with…him.

HIM
I want to make one thing clear: I saw her first.

Not that it makes anything okay, but it’s true. The moment she walked into my line of sight, I knew she was something special. I could see past the mask she wore, could see right down to her soul.

I recognized instantly that she needed a friend…and it just so happens I did too. So, I wormed my way in. Took her out on the town, forced her from her solitary existence. Together we grew brave, stepped outside the boxes we’d been placed in. Walked a thin line between “just friends” and something more.

I just didn’t mean to fall in love with…her.

Quesarasera Book Blog Review

4 Stars!!

I loved it! Such a great second chance romance!

Maren and Noah were childhood sweethearts until Noah broke her heart by cheating on him. But did he? He certainly manipulated a situation which sent Maren running off the England. Noah did what he did because he loved Maren and felt he wasn’t good enough for her. Same old self-sacrificing male mumbo jumbo. Maren is back, unwillingly, and Noah is determined to win her back because he has changed his ways.

Ok, ok. Simmer down kids. I know what you’re thinking, “cheating in books sucks, Sara.” I agree. It does suck, BUT I have learned to accept it for what it is… a plot driver plain and simple. Sure, the cheating was the catalyst, but it sure set up an amazing second chance romance. Noah and Maren have some serious chemistry and the level of angst is pretty high. Also, Noah was a cad, but Maren was and still isn’t perfect. She seems to have a big old problem with just accepting things at face value and doesn’t stop to consider other possibilities. So, see, they are both flawed and kind of a mess But, the end product is a great story!

P. Dangelico is one of my favorites and she gave another great story!

Meet P. Dangelico

Dangelico loves romance in all forms, cuddly creatures (four legged and two), really bloody sexy pulp, the NY Jets (although she’s reconsidering after this season), and to while away the day at the barn (apparently she does her best thinking shoveling horse crap). What she’s not enamored with is referring to herself in the third person and social media so don’t expect her to get on Twitter anytime soon. Oh, and although she was born in Italy, she’s been Jersey Strong since she turned six.

Quesarasera Book Blog Review

4.5 Stars!

This series is one of my favorites from S. L. Scott, but she outdid herself with Rivers!

A beautiful second chance romance featuring Rivers, a broken rock star, and Stella, the girl her left behind. Now five years later, they come face to face and it sets off an emotional whirlwind!

This book had me nearly in tears. Rivers and Stella’s story was a little bit sad, a lot emotional and simply an amazing second chance romance. I loved these two characters. The writing is phenomenal. Scott infused emotion and chemistry into every single word!

A second chance you don’t want to miss

EXCERPT #1

Stella Lilith used to have an adventurous side, but I think it’s been a while since she broke a few rules. “Will you climb out first?”

There’s my girl. “Yep.” I press down on the sink, hoping it doesn’t fall off the wall. It looks old, so I’m not sure it can hold my weight. But it’s getting louder in the hall, so I climb up, grabbing an exposed pipe above the window, and maneuver my legs through the opening. Good thing we’re on the ground level. Pushing off, I land on my feet in the alley and turn around. “Stella?”

She peeks out and by the way her lips are twisted and her eyes are looking at the cement, she’s nervous. “I don’t want to fall.”

“I’d never let you. Not to the ground anyhow.”

For a second, she looks confused, but her brow relaxes and a small smile appears. “You’ll catch me?”

“Every time.”

She disappears, and I can hear her climbing onto the sink. Her legs slide out the window until her ass rests on the metal sill. “Ready for me, Rivers?”

“All my life.”

“For real,” she says, her nerves causing a slight shake to her tone. “You’re going to catch me, right?”

“Always.” I take her by the ass, and say, “Put your legs over my shoulders.”

“What? No.”

“Yes. I’ve got you. Then all I have to do is back up as you slip out.”

“I’m not as light as I used to be. Are you sure you can handle me?”

I work my way under her so her legs are over my shoulders. “Don’t worry about me, baby. I can handle you all right.”

Her thighs squeeze my neck. I like to think it was the name I slipped in there, but it’s probably because she’s anxious to do this. She slips out a little more, and our eyes meet. “You’re sure you’re ready?”

“All you have to do is let go. I have you.”

Releasing the pipe, she ducks her head to the side while I support her back with my hands, holding her until she clears the glass. Helping her upright, my face is against the jeans that cover her vagina and she’s squeezing my head with her legs so tight I don’t know if I’m going to live. What a sweet fucking way to die.

EXCERPT #2

I’m a skilled guitarist. I know how to make her come using all I’ve learned and playing her like an instrument.

I’m just not sure if I’m ready to let her have a release. I’m thinking of keeping her on the brink so we can come together. Stella grinds against my hand, seeking relief. I pull out and replace my finger with my cock one big inch at a time.

A gasp and then a harsh intake of air draws my attention to her pretty face. “How do I feel, baby?”

“So good. So much.” Her eyes open lazily as she takes a slow deep breath and looks into my eyes as I hover over her. Her hands drift from my shoulders to my jaw. “I want all of you, Rivers. Your body, your love, this look in your eyes forever. Kiss me.” Fuck. Yes. Forever.

I push in a little more, causing her eyes to close with the motion. My lips touch hers, and she whispers, “I was always here waiting for you. I was always yours . . .” I push in farther, her words driving me to take more. “To love.” Further, the feel of her engulfing me begins to cloud my thoughts. “To fuck.”

Fuck. I thrust all the way, as deep as I can go. Her head goes back, her words cries of desire. I kiss the underside of her chin and fuck.

Fuck.

Love.

Fuck.

Not gentle.

Driving home everything I’ve wanted to tell her since the day we broke up. “I love you.” I fuck her selfishly. I fuck her to satisfy my own needs. I fuck her into an apology. “I’m sorry if I hurt you.”

“Don’t say sorry,” she manages between panting breaths. “You feel so good.”

I rest on my forearms and take her wrists in hand before pulling them above her head. Our palms press together. Our fingers entwine. Her body is stretched beneath me when I kiss her lips, showing her how much I care about her. “I meant I’m sorry for what I’m about to do to you.”

ABOUT S.L. SCOTT

Living in the capital of Texas with her family, Scott loves traveling and avocados, beaches, and cooking with her kids. She’s obsessed with epic romances and loves a good plot twist. Her favorite color is blue, but she likens it more toward the sky than the emotion. Her home is filled with the welcoming symbol of the pineapple and finds surfing a challenge though she likes to think she’s a pro.

New Release ~ 4 Stars for Blind Love by Kelly Elliott!

Harley and I had our whole lives planned out, until her plans changed, and those plans didn’t include me.

After years spent trying to get the love of my life out of my head and repair my too-damaged heart, I thought I was finally moving on…but life sure has a funny way of letting you know when those best-laid plans are about to be turned upside down.

My entire world was rocked when Harley unexpectedly moved back to Oak Springs. Every miserable moment I’d spent trying to get over her and every hour I’d wasted trying to erase her from my life came back to haunt me the minute she walked into my office, fear in her eyes, and asked me for help. Would I…or better yet, could I walk away from her this time after all that she had put me through?

What I really needed to know is would I be able to forge ahead with the future I had so meticulously planned—one that didn’t include Harley—or will her return finally open my eyes to a future full of endless possibilities?

Blind Love is book five in the Cowboys and Angels series.

Quesarasera Book Blog Review

4 Stars!

I knew I was going to love Tripp and Harley’s story, but it was more than I expected!

This series is my favorite Kelly Elliott series. I love all the siblings equally and each has their own uniqueness. Tripp is a cowboy at heart, but I love his 10-year plan mentality, even if it does cause him grief. He has harbored love for Harley all these years even when she wasn’t around. Harley is equally likable. Her mistake was a selfless one that brought heartbreak. Their story is one of finding your way home and back to that one person you are meant to be with.

I enjoyed that their story wasn’t easy. No fluffy, happy reunions here. They both had to work at things. There is a lot of depth here that you don’t normally expect from a contemporary romance.

A great second chance romance!
