Synopsis:       A sexy category romance from Entangled’s Brazen imprint…

Playing dirty can be the best kind of fun…

Chloe Franklin wouldn’t call herself a commitment-phobe, so much as she’s allergic to anything long term. She loves the sexy, sweaty, and intensely hot hours of the night that come before the sun rises, though. Especially when those nights are spent with Search-and-Rescuer Gage McGraw…

Gage loves his job, but there is one thing he’s starting to like more than the rush of a mission—a stacked blonde with a mouth that haunts his dreams. Every time he steps foot in the sleepy town of Beaufort, he hooks up with Chloe. But he’s tired of hooks-ups. He wants more.

Just the sight of Gage gets Chloe’s blood going. Hot, bothered, and finally naked, she’s ready for their night to start. But before he takes her, he whispers what his intentions really are…and then the games really begin.

Review:   Tell Me You Need Me is a steamy hot read from Joya Ryan.  Chloe and Gage hook up whenever he is in town, but he wants more.  Her…not so much.  The back and forth between the two characters was laugh out loud funny.  This is a short read at just 132 pages, but those pages are filled with fun, romance, and some serious hotness.




New release review: Played by Clare James


Title:  Played, an Elite PR Novel

Series: Elite PR

Author: Clare James

Publisher: Entangled Brazen

Publication Date: 10/19/2015

Genre:  Adult Contemporary

Rating:  4.5/5 stars

Synopsis:  Played by Clare James

The music should be enough. End of story. But Aaron Major is finding out it’s not, and now his agent has hired a firm of suits to help launch his debut album, turning his life into a goddamn circus. Smile here. Play there. Be nice. Well, screw that. If Aaron wanted to spend his time shaking hands and kissing babies, he would’ve gone into politics.

Helping launch the career of country singer Aaron Major should be a cakewalk for PR pro Melody Sharp. Aaron is charming, sexy, and oh-so-appealing when he’s on stage. Off stage, though, he’s her worst nightmare. A stubborn, ornery, reclusive nightmare without a lick of business-or fashion-sense. The only way he’s going to make it in music is with a serious makeover-and quite possibly a personality transplant.  Soon, they’re engaged in a game of give and take, and though it’s Melody calling the shots, it’s Aaron who holds all control…

My Review:   A story of a down-on-his-luck Country music bad-boy that is in desperate need of an image makeover as his comeback nears and a down-on-her-luck publicist who desperately needs to prove herself to her boss.  They find each other by chance, but they are just who the other needs…even if they don’t know it, at first.  When they are both close to losing hope, they find what they need in each other.  A hot, romantic story of second chances, trust and love.  This second novel in the Elite PR series will leave you singing a happy love song.
