About HARD JUSTICE:
Playing it safe has never felt so dangerous…
Justice Wallington knows how to harness his strength and intimidating size—skills he put to good use first in the MMA cage, and now as a bodyguard at the Body Armor agency. But no opponent has ever left him feeling as off balance as his new client, heiress Fallon Wade. Far from a spoiled princess, she’s sweet and intriguingly innocent. It’s a risk-free assignment, until he’s required to fake a relationship with her in order to blend in.
Sheltered from the world after a family tragedy, Fallon longs to experience life—going to bars, dancing, talking to strangers. Not easy with a huge, lethal-looking bodyguard shadowing her every move. Justice seems like her polar opposite, but pretending to be a couple stirs undeniable heat. And when danger strikes again, it’s not just her safety in jeopardy, but a passion that’s real, raw and absolutely against the rules…


EXCERPT  

When the doorbell rang, Fallon Wade’s heart jumped into a beat so furious, it stole her breath. He was here. She wasn’t ready, would never be ready, but she hadn’t been given a choice. Opening her bedroom door very quietly, she tiptoed to the staircase landing and peeked over. Her father and mother stood before the man, in her line of vision. But it didn’t matter. He towered over them and it’d take a giant to block him. Holy smokes. He had to be at least six-five. Muscles bulged everywhere. Like…seriously. Ev­erywhere. Shoulders, biceps, chest, neck; he stood in a casual pose, if a brick wall could ever be casual. Dark hair stuck up in a messy faux hawk. An un­trimmed goatee mixed with beard shadow covered a hard, square jaw. And his nose…well, his nose looked as if it had been broken. At least once. Or maybe multiple times. Oddly none of that detracted from his extremely rug­ged good looks, but rather added a dangerous, sexy edge. He certainly looked more than capable of pro­viding protection. While her father, no doubt a little shell-shocked, prat­tled on about what was and wasn’t acceptable for his “precious daughter,” the man shifted his weight, crossed his arms and, with polite impatience, listened. Until he glanced up at her.

Elizabeth's Review


3.5 stars - Worth a Reader's Time


Review Copy Provided by Publisher via Net Galley


This was actually a really sweet book. Justice may look and act like a big, bad MMA fighter/bodyguard on the outside, but on the inside he has a heart of gold. Fallon was a fun character to watch blossom from mousey and timid to a vibrant young woman as she got to experience more of life.
These two were a lot of fun to watch together. Their chemistry was almost instant, but Justice's honor keeps them from acting on it. They were also surrounded by a fantastic supporting cast. Some are familiar faces that great to catch up with while others are new. Justice's Mom and Grandma are especially entertaining.
This is definitely another winner from the dependable Ms. Foster.

Elizabeth's Review

3.5 Stars - Worth a Reader's Time

Review Copies provided by Authors

I didn't make it through all of the entries in the anthology, but I did read a lot of them. Some were more my cup of tea than others, but my favorite was In Skates Trouble by Kate Meader. This anthology is a great way to meet new authors and help a great cause at the same time. I've included brief reviews if the entries I did get to read.

In skates trouble - 4 stars
I loved Addy and Ford! She's a unique heroine - a curvy girl who has embraced her figure and made it work for her in modeling and in business. She's also slightly older than her hockey playing hottie. He's also not the stereotypical athlete hero, he's down to earth and looking for something real.
Add in a sexy first meeting, off the charts chemistry, and some really sweet moments and you have a run introduction to a series I'm very excited to follow!

Under the midnight Sun - 3 stars
I enjoyed this one, but didn't connect with it as much as other.
A good second chance story. Jonas is at a cross roads. He has achieved everything possible professionally and to continue playing would endanger his health. Running into his old flame - the one who got away- suddenly makes things clear.

The warm up - 3.5 stars
I loved Zim and Suji!
The cup keeper - edwin- is a fantastic secondary character.

Penalty Box blues - 3.5 stars
So sweet - I loved the idea of a super star learning to embrace his learning disability and help others.

Ransoms - 3 stars
A cute story and the characters felt decently developed, but there were parts that felt a little forced. I loved just how far Ransom went to win Lexa back. Their age (23) didn't seem realistic for the life experience he was dealing with

Making his move - 3.5 stars
Oh my gosh - Rod and Ari are just too much! He's such a good guy hero that's it's impossible not to like him, especially his long term devotion to Ari.

Full contact - 3 stars
Cute, but felt like something was missing.

Free agent - 3 stars
M/m romance, good story, but very short.

Deep Check - 3.5 stars
Finn goes home to make amends to a ghost and discovers the home he never knew he had. This is a good story - it's a friends- to- lovers/second chance story that is about finding out where you really belong and what matters to you most.

Check Yes - 2.5 stars
This was a cute idea, but lacked in execution for me. I really struggled to connect with Cooper. He just seemed to be all flash and it was hard to see the good guy underneath

Courage - 3 stars
A good story about fighting for the love you have and the fact that a marriages take work too.


The Edwin "keeper of the cup" character is one of the few characters that was in all of the stories. I struggled a little bit with the inconsistencies of who he was.

The Hot Shot ~ Kristen Callihan ~ Cover Reveal

the hot shot release date   TheHotShot Amazon-2      

TheHotShot Amazon-2

First we were friends. Then we were roommates. Now I want more…

What can I say about Chess Copper? The woman is capable of bringing me to my knees. I know this about five minutes after getting naked for her.

No one is more surprised than me. The prickly photographer my team hired to shoot our annual charity calendar isn’t my usual type. She’s defense to my offense, a challenge at every turn. But when I’m with her, all the regrets and darkness goes away. She makes life fun.

I want to know Chess, be close to her. Which is a bad idea.

Chess is looking for a relationship. I’ve never given a woman more than one night. But when fate leaves Chess without a home, I step up and offer her mine. We’re roommates now. Friends without benefits. But it’s getting harder to keep our hands off each other. And the longer we live together the more I realize she’s becoming my everything.

Trick is… Now that I’ve made her believe I’m a bad bet, how do I convince her to give this player a true shot at forever?

4.25 stars ~ Would Recommend to a Friend


Review Copy provided by Author


I didn't see THAT coming.... that was a pretty common theme is Stay Awhile.
From the very first page, there are twists and turns in Megan's life - to the extent that I would have expected her to break. I was impressed over and over again with her resilience.
I loved Garrett and appreciated how steadfast he was in his care of Megan and her daughter.
Part of me wanted to say that the evolution of Megan and Garrett's relationship was too fast, except for the fact that they have known each other since high school and that does mitigate some of the speed.
I enjoyed this book and was pulled in to the story, my one complaint was a twist introduced at the very last minute. It didn't really change the outcome of the story, but it did introduce an element of "is this story really done" at a point I would have said we didn't need it.
If you are looking for a non traditional romance with a touch of intrigue- then this is a great book for you.

Sinclair ~ M.C Decker ~ Cover Reveal

Author: M.C. Decker
Title: Sinclair
Release Date: April 20, 2017
Add to TBR


Braxton Sinclair became a detective eighteen years ago, for one reason –to solve a homicide case that his late father had promised to crack over two decades earlier. But, maybe it wasn’t the case at all, but the memories of the girl he’d seen only once. Whatever the reason, Sinclair needed to come home –for the girl, and for himself. He vowed to find the bastard who’d killed her father –and his.

Tennyson St. James was only a child when she entered her home –her safe place –only to find her father lying in a pool of blood. Through the years, those visions have continued to torment her. But, with help from those in her life, she found peace. That was until Sinclair came to town –destroying everything she thought to be true, and causing her to question everyone she’d ever loved.

A Sinner and a Saint –a lethal cocktail, or a perfect blend?



M.C. Decker is the author of contemporary romance novels, including the books in her Unspoken Series, as well as the upcoming romantic suspense novel, Sinclair. She lives in a suburb of Flint, Michigan with her husband, Brian, and spoiled-rotten Siamese cat, Simon. For the last decade, she has worked as a journalist for several community newspapers in the Mid-Michigan region. She enjoys all things '80s and '90s pop culture: movies, boy bands, music and especially the color, hot pink. She also strictly lives by the motto, "Life is better in flip flops," and is a diehard Detroit Tigers fan.
