Bad boys. They’ve been Ruby Garvan’s weakness since she
started dating. But, when one of them took the ‘bad’ in the ‘boy’ too far, her
bones broke… along with her spirit.
She swore she’d never go down that road again. Her next

gold.
Armed with a stack of inspirational quotes and a list of
traits her new man must have, Ruby goes in search of her happily ever after.

for an answer.
After a drunken night of far too much honesty, the two

thinks he is. If he can’t convince her, he’ll go away for good this time.
Ruby doesn’t think he stands a chance against her resolve to

Take one sexy bartender. Add a badass cop. A splash of
sweet, that’s me. One sour, that’s him… and serve over ice.

That’s how you’ll get to my current situation.
You know the girl – the one who commands the scene, bottle of liquor in hand,
pouring liquid fire into the willing throats of patrons as they let loose at
the local bar?

That’s me.

I may be known as the town party girl, but in reality I’m this close to my
dream of opening my own bar – McConaugheys. Yes, it will be named after the
acclaimed actor. What can I say? I’m a sucker for that sexy Texan.

Everything was going as planned until the night I had a few drinks and accepted
a ride home from a friend. A misunderstanding leads to an arrest, and now I’m
at the mercy of the one man I can’t stand, and trust me, the feeling is
definitely mutual.

Adam Reingold is six-feet-tall and built like a stallion — the man is the
epitome of male. He also happens to be the town narc and hates my guts. There’s
a story to our past and it’s not a pretty one.

So, now, here I am, chained to him for the summer like a hardened criminal,
doing whatever he tells me to do. Problem is, I can’t help but look at him when
he’s not watching and wonder what our future could be like if things were
different.

There are so many reasons why he’s all wrong for me. Even more reasons why I
need to stay away from him.

It’s a cocktail of trouble. Best served shaken, not stirred.

As the Dating Guy on L.A.’s top morning show, I give the

hooking up…well, except for me. Sure, I can get any woman I want, but I’ve got

“relationship” written all over her. Probably stamped on her ass, too. And
wouldn’t I like to confirm that.
Unfortunately, she wants nothing to do with me. At all.
Something about the next Ice Age might have even come up in her rebuttal.
Adorable. Because she’s determined to ignore what one simple kiss proved: she
wants me as badly as I want her.
Everything in me is screaming to go after her, but I’ve got
a secret that I’m fairly certain will end up with her roasting my nuts over an

Excerpt

 

My cell pings with an incoming text as I approach the garage elevator, so I’m not exactly paying attention when I hear the elevator arrive and sense someone step out. I think I walk around the person, but my shoulder bumps hers.

The delicate feel of her has me jerking my head up.

“Sorry,” we say at the same time.

She’s holding a box piled high with envelopes that partially block her face. I don’t know if it’s from our slight collision or a natural misstep, but the box wobbles in her hands. She sucks in a breath. I slip my arm under the box to help keep it from tipping over, but that seems to make it worse, because the next thing I know, the envelopes are spilling out onto the ground.

“Son of a biscuit!” she says, unable to stop the box from crashing down but keeping herself on both feet.

I burst out laughing.

Hear me out. The “son of a biscuit” is damn adorable. I’ve never heard anyone actually use it before. But better still, the beautiful creature spewing such foul language is none other than the girl who dumped chicken wings on me. Teague.

“I’m glad you find this so—”

She stalls, finally meeting my eyes. Recognition crosses her face as she scrunches up her cute little nose in annoyance.

“Amusing?” I finish for her.

She opens her mouth to speak, but nothing comes out. The two of us running into each other again is pretty unbelievable. She huffs out a breath that’s a mixture of contempt and surprise.

“I’m just as surprised as you, baby.”

This time the sound she makes from the back of her throat is pure disgust. She drops to all fours to gather the envelopes back into the box.

I bend down to help, reaching for envelopes while never taking my eyes off her. She’s pissed about more than the dropped cargo. “Bad day?” I say.

She glares at me.

“I’m sorry about bumping you. I was looking down at my phone and thought I had plenty of room.”

Picture a hot girl with blue eyes so kind she couldn’t look daggers no matter how hard she tried. That’s what I’m privileged enough to be staring at now. The corners of my mouth pull up involuntarily. Her mouth, while set in a tight line, is sexy as fuck, those generous lips of hers distracting. “Seriously, Teague, I’m sorry.”

Her expression goes from hard to soft instantly. She sits back on her haunches, puts her hands on her thighs. “You remember my name?”

My Review:

4.5 Stars!!

A flirty, sexy hero + a heroine with a huge heart = a fun, flirty read with so much heart! Robin Bielman has now been added to my go-to authors list.

Talk British to Me has everything you want in a book–a slow burning romance, conflict, great internal dialogue, secondary characters that add to the story and a hero and heroine who you can’t help but love. Bielman’s writing is fantastic–fun, easy, flirty dialogue without overdoing it. Mateo is sexy and unapologetic, plus he has this sweet, protective side that is evident from his first appearance in the book. Teague is sweet and a bit insecure at first, but she quickly gains confidence.

I liked the plot – he’s “The Dating Guy” with a contract that forbids him to have a relationship and he meets Teauge, a girl who only does relationships. The story flowed well and Mateo’s job caused just the right amount of conflict. I also liked that he was “The Dating Guy” and yet he wasn’t. There were a couple of things that fell short for me. First, Mateo is 23 years old people. I don’t know about you, but most 23 year old guys are not sex experts nor do they care to read a girl’s body language or even care what it means. This probably just means I am old, but hey, what can I say, it’s fiction, right?

I loved this book! Go 1 click it ASAP!!!

New Release: Joy Ride by Cynthia Rayne

Joy Ride
Cynthia Rayne
Publication date: June 15th 2017
Genres: New Adult, Romance

IAN

As an English professor at an Ivy League university, I’m at the top of my profession, but something’s missing. I gave up my artistic dreams to pursue an academic career. And I’m still haunted by the scars of my past.

I enjoy breaking the rules and doing what I damn well please. And a dangerous infatuation’s blooming—Darcy’s intelligent, innocent, and virginal. I long to be her first, to teach her every wicked thing I know.

There’s just one problem—she’s my student, the ultimate forbidden fruit.

DARCY

I lead a well-ordered life with to-do lists and schedules. I always do the safe thing, make the right choices. I’ve made all my plans—got accepted into a master’s degree program, and I even have a graduate assistantship lined up.

Although, I long to be an author, like my father, but it’s not a stable career. Yet, I can’t stop thinking about seeing my name on a book cover.

To make matters worse, I keep my thinking about my sexy professor—he’s got a British accent, an attitude, and a bad boy streak. I hang on his every word. When we get close, all my barriers and rules break down. He’s encouraging me to throw caution to the wind and chase my dream.

Can I let go? Have the life I want and the man I long for?

Goodreads / Amazon

EXCERPT:

Darcy cleared her throat. “Tonight was fun. I’ll see you in class tomorrow.”

“Yes, I had a good time too. I hope you get some rest.”

“You too, Ian.” She’d said her parting line, but neither one of us moved, like we were drawn together.

Darcy was so close—within arm’s reach. Before I knew it, I leaned down to steal a kiss. At the very last moment, I changed course and pressed my mouth to her cheek instead.

Thank God.

She gasped.

Dammit. I’d come so close to crossing that infernal line. When I stood upright, Darcy had a fingertip pressed her to lips, mouth parted as though inviting more intimate contact. Or my imagination was in overdrive.

“Um, good night.” She took a step back.

“Good night.”

Technically, a kiss on the cheek was innocent. Even if my intentions weren’t. Yet I’d breached protocol all the same.

Professors didn’t kiss their students. Period.

Chase has been set up. She finds herself on a blind date with a Korean hottie, and all because her mom obsessively loves Korean romance dramas. It turns out that Daniel Bak is actually really dreamy, but things take a turn for the worse when Chase happens upon stolen research on her university professor’s laptop. It throws her into the arms of wealthy corporate heir Hyun Tae, who also happens to be Daniel’s best friend.

Caught between both men, and hunted down by a vengeful CEO, Chase must rely on Hyun Tae’s protection. But when the drama settles, where will her heart land?

Goodreads / Amazon / Barnes & Noble / Kobo

EXCERPT:

The lunch lady ladled the soup into a bowl and placed a Styrofoam plate with the grilled cheese next to the bowl on her tray. “Anything else?”

“That’s it, thanks.” Chase smiled.

The Asian kid behind her asked for a salad. She caught a glimpse of him out of the corner of her eye as he got his plate of food. He was wearing white skinny jeans, navy sneakers, and a sort of silky gray T-shirt that definitely looked designer. They shuffled along in line until finally it was her turn to pay. Chase handed the thin student cashier her card. He looked at the debit card briefly before handing it back to her. “You need your student card.”

Chase took the card, suddenly nervous. “My what?”

The student had dark blond hair and kind features, but his look of exasperation told her he was thoroughly fed up with answering this question. “Your student ID card. You pay for lunch with it. You can’t get lunch any other way.”

“What, seriously?” Chase looked down at her tray. Her stomach gurgled. “So I have to get my card and then come back?”

“Sorry.”

She swallowed. “My mom didn’t say anything about a student ID card.” The cashier gave her a blank look of disbelief, so she added, “She works in registration.”

“Okay. Well, sorry, but you need a student ID.”

Someone sighed behind her. She was holding up the line.

“Excuse me,” a low voice said from behind her. Chase looked over her shoulder and found the guy with the designer shirt leaning toward her. He held out a student ID card, and reaching over her, handed it to the cashier. “Just pay for both.”

Chase turned to face him, her eyes widening. “Oh . . . ah, wait . . .”

The cashier hesitated.

“No, don’t do that,” Chase insisted. No, no, no! Don’t do that! I don’t like owing a complete stranger, thanks very much.

The guy gave the cashier a nod so full of confidence, Chase was pretty sure anyone would have obeyed an order from him. The cashier swiped the card.

Chase realized she was staring. For one thing, this guy was otherworldly beautiful. He had high cheekbones and warm brown eyes that tilted up at an exotic angle. His chin sloped down to a square point from his razor-like jawline. She almost couldn’t find words to respond to him. And besides that, he held himself like he owned the school.

His eyes flitted to her. “You can go now.”

“Oh.” Direct. And people thought she was made of stone. “Thanks. Sorry.”

“It’s fine.” He had an accent, but it was barely detectable.

She scurried forward with her tray, her face hot and her calm ruffled.

She whirled around to face him but miscalculated the motion by a mile. She collided with the generous stranger, her tray flying off to the side. Tomato soup splattered all over the floor, washing over both their shoes in a torrent of scalding liquid.

The guy jumped back and then looked up from his shoes to her face, his scowl a mixture of incredulity and shock.

The racket in the cafeteria quieted almost instantly. All eyes turned to them. Chase stood there like an idiot with tomato soup trickling down her leg and seeping between her toes. She couldn’t seem to find her voice with the entire cafeteria staring at her.

New Release: It Could Happen by Mia Kerick

It Could Happen
Mia Kerick
Published by: Dreamspinner Press
Publication date: June 5th 2017
Genres: LGBTQ+, New Adult, Romance

Three misfits, mismatched in every way—Henry Perkins, Brody Decker, and Danny Denisco—have been friends throughout high school. Now in their senior year, the boys realize their relationship is changing, that they’re falling in love. But they face opposition at every turn—from outside and from within themselves. Moving to the next level will take all the courage, understanding, and commitment they can muster. But it could happen.

Henry is a star athlete and the son of religious parents who have little concern for the future he wants. Brody is a quirky dreamer and adrenaline junkie, and Danny is an emo artist and the target of bullies. Despite their differences they’ve always had each other’s backs, and with each of them facing a new and unique set of challenges, that support is more important than ever. Is it worth risking the friendship they all depend on for the physical and romantic relationship they all desire?

In this unconventional new adult romance, three gay teens brave societal backlash—as well as the chance that they might lose their treasured friendship—to embark on a committed polyamorous relationship.

Goodreads / Amazon / Barnes & Noble / Kobo

EXCERPT:

Brody

Lunch block B is symbolic of our ruin:

Henry has joined forces with the jocks. He is a jock, so it makes complete sense. And he seems happy enough, which is good. He hasn’t looked at me once since the last night he slept in my bed— tucked between Danny and me—the day before he refused the offer of my Jeep keys. Henry had no interest in taking the Jeep for a final joyride. I respect him for that.

Danny has taken to eating upstairs with the artsy crowd. For all I know, he has his eye on Mr. Lansing. Mr. Lansing is middle-aged, kind of cute, and likely even gay. He’s nuts about Danny, if not way too old for him, but that’s par for the course in Danny’s life. He’s better than most of Danny’s boyfriends who came before.

As for me, I eat alone. It’s okay. I’m a loner, really. It’s cool. And I write this without any bitterness, which is hard to believe,

but it’s also true. I’m returning to my natural state, after an almost four-year break. High school was a pleasant interlude of connection in a life I’m meant to spend without anyone to answer to.

LOL. “Pleasant interlude” makes pain sound so inviting. But it’s all good. I like being alone. Time to stop being so dramatic. There are so many important things I’ve long neglected to do.

I’m ready to get started.

Author Bio:

Mia Kerick is the mother of four exceptional children—all named after saints—and five nonpedigreed cats—all named after the next best thing to saints, Boston Red Sox players. Her husband of twenty years has been told by many that he has the patience of Job, but don’t ask Mia about that, as it is a sensitive subject.

Mia focuses her stories on the emotional growth of troubled young men and their relationships, and she believes that sex has a place in a love story, but not until it is firmly established as a love story. As a teen, Mia filled spiral-bound notebooks with romantic tales of tortured heroes (most of whom happened to strongly resemble lead vocalists of 1980s big-hair bands) and stuffed them under her mattress for safekeeping. She is thankful to Dreamspinner Press for providing her with an alternate place to stash her stories.

Mia is proud of her involvement with the Human Rights Campaign and cheers for each and every victory made in the name of marital equality. Her only major regret: never having taken typing or computer class in school, destining her to a life consumed with two-fingered pecking and constant prayer to the Gods of Technology.

“How many drinks have you had?” Dane asks, grinning.
“Umm…”  I count on my fingers, trying to recall.
“Maybe four?  Or, like, five?”  I shrug.
He takes a sip of the rum and Coke I made him, before
bringing his eyes to mine.  “I really a sorry, Emma.  I feel like
shit about the whole thing.”
“Shit happens,” I say nonchalantly, not letting on how much
the whole scenario humiliated me.
“Assholes cause it,” he agrees.
I giggle.  “You’re funny!  How is it you can be
funny and hot?  You can’t be both.  You have to
choose one or the other,” I announce bossily, but jokingly.  Kinda. 
“I guess I’ll choose funny then.  Looks fade, after
all.”
Gah!  You’re smart, too?  This is so
unfair!”
He leans toward me, his soft puffs of breath skating over my
face.  “You know, you’re funny and smart and so fucking beautiful,
Emma.  But you’re also humble and kind, and sweet enough to give a guy
like me a toothache.”
“Oh, my god,” I whisper. 
He leans in further and then his fingers hold my chin,
keeping me in place, as his lips sweep across mine.  I open up for him and
his tongue invades my mouth.  Soft, sweet, slow.  He tastes like
peppermint breath mints with a hint of spicy rum.  I kiss him back with an
intensity I didn’t know I possessed.

Blog Tour: 4 Stars for Confessions of a Former Puck Bunny by Cindi Madsen

Today we have the stop for Cindi Madsen’s Confessions of a Former Puck Bunny. Check out this fantastic new romance and grab your copy today!

About Confessions of a Former Puck Bunny:

Confession #1: I used to be a puck bunny, but after a hockey player broke my heart, I gave up all things hockey. Now I’m just focused on finding a way to pass my math class so I can graduate college.

Confession #2: Ryder “Ox” Maddox’s deep, sexy voice sends fuzzy tingles through my entire body, and I’m powerless to stop it. Which is a big problem since the hot, surprisingly funny hockey player is my new math tutor.

Confession #3: I can’t stop thinking about how ripped Ryder is from all his hockey training, and how fun it’d be to cross lines with him.

Confession #4: I kissed a hockey player and I liked it.

Confession #5: If I’m not careful, I might relapse and fall for Ryder, and then I’ll be totally pucked.

 

My Review:

4 Stars!!

One of my favorite NA sports romance series comes to an end with Lindsey and Ryder’s story.

Lindsey is a former puck bunny who has changed her ways.  Now, she hates hockey players after one of them broke her heart.  Ryder, the son of a former NHL player, eats, sleeps and breathes hockey.  He also happens to be a math whiz and Lindsey needs a math tutor.  Ryder, who has been enamored with Lindsey since that time he helped Hudson kidnap Whitney from the Heights offices (it was all in the name of romance).  Now, he sees the opportunity to help her and show her he’s more than just a hockey player.

Madsen gives us all the feels with this one.  Lindsey and Ryder both come from complicated lives and tend to live in their own heads.  There is a lot of inner monologuing, which I personally like, allowing us to really get to know Lindsey and Ryder.  Lots of ups and downs in this one.  Lindsey is her own worst enemy at times and when it counts, Ryder lets outside forces control him instead of listening to himself.  It is a great story and I loved the HEA.

Also, there is a great wrap up of the series in the prologue!

A sweet, sexy NA sports romance that you’re sure to enjoy!
