The Lawyer ~ Marni Mann ~ New Release & Review

The Lawyer by Marni Mann is now live!

A sexy, new stand-alone in the Dalton Brothers Series from USA Today best-selling author Marni Mann …

I’m not the type of girl who picks up a man on a rooftop bar.

Not the kind of girl who lets a man’s hands roam my body, discovering I have no panties on.

Never the girl who has hours’ worth of o’s from a smoking-hot one-night stand.

But Dominick makes it so easy to say yes.

His body, his moves, and his oh-so-wicked tongue have me saying it over and over again.

Yes, please.

Yes, more.

Yes, right there.

He worships every inch of my body, and I’m still sore the next morning when I meet him again.

This time, he’s Mr. Dalton, my sister’s cutthroat entertainment lawyer.

And he has a proposition for me.

He wants to make me famous.

Of course, that means sharing a screen with my wildly jealous sister.

It means giving up my career.

It means the whole world will suddenly know everything about me.

Which presents one catastrophic problem—Dominick doesn’t date famous people.

So, do I take a chance at becoming a Hollywood star, or do I pass up the opportunity to be with the man who gave me a taste of forever?

Elizabeth's Review

3.5 stars - Worth a Reader's Time

Review Copy Provided by Author

In The Lawyer, Ms Mann introduces us to the Dalton brothers. From bits and pieces of the story, I am guessing that they may have been secondary characters in previous works, but they take a staring role here - especially Dominick, the oldest.

While told in dual POV between Dominick and love interest, Kendall, I really feel like this was Dominick’s story. There is a definite aggressive and sexual tone to the story that at times, that almost too much. The chemistry between Dominick and Kendall radiates off the page, but I would have liked to have seen a little bit more invested in the emotional side of their relationship vs the purley physical.

The story arc behind the lawyer is interesting and there is a decent plot line, but not a ton in the way of character development or evolution. We see these two express their feelings, but don't neccessarily see much of the softer side that provides support for those emotions.

Overall, I enjoyed The Lawyer as it was a good "escape" read. I liked what I saw of both Dominick and Kendall. The teasers of the other Dalton brothers have me curious and looking forward to future fun escapes.

Mama's Boy ~ Avery Flynn ~ New Release & Review

Mama's Boy by Avery Flynn is now live!

He's exactly who you want to take home.

Top three lies about mama's boys:

1. That we don't know what we want. That one is straight up BS. I know exactly what I want—to win this bet with my cousins by any means necessary even if it means finding the worst possible date in all of Harbor City and agreeing to whatever she asks in exchange for her pretending to fall for me.
2. That we are soft, little wimps. Yeah, you don't get to be CEO of a multibillion dollar company by letting other people take advantage of you. So as soon as I realize my date Fiona Hartigan isn't exactly who she appears to be, there's nothing that will stop me from figuring out the truth—no matter how many dates it takes to unravel that mystery.
3. That we don't know how to kiss. Oh yes we do. The only problem is that once I start kissing Fiona, I don't want to stop and I have to because we've already agreed that all of this is temporary.

Now I'm the guy that every woman wants to bring home to mom—except for the woman I'm fake dating and falling in love with for real.

Have you been missing the Hartigan family? Well, they are back as Fiona tries to find her way with Dixon Beckett.

I think almost everyone can relate to Fiona. Live has thrown her curveballs that have her questioning who she is and what she wants. Dixon is just as wounded, so when these two come together under false pretenses, what could possibly go wrong?

Watching these two figure things out while surrounded by his interfering cousins and her equally involved family was pure fun. I enjoyed seeing them spar and eventually give in to the “other” impulses. Ms Flynn did an artful job of letting us see this relationship develop even while we knew things were going to blow up- but how?

Mama’s Boy pulled double duty of telling Fiona and Dixon’s story while also building the Last Man Standing world. I am curious about the upcoming stories for Nash and Griff.

Harvest of Love ~ Melanie Moreland ~ New Release & Review

Title: Harvest of Love
Series: Instaspark
Author: Melanie Moreland
Genre: Contemporary Romance Standalone
Release Date: September 23, 2021
Cover Design: Karen Hulseman of Feed Your Dreams Designs
Cover Photgraphy: Regina Wamba of Exclusive Book Stock

Danica Rawlins

She’s a career woman, constantly busy, under pressure, and in demand. But the job that once seemed like a dream to her now feels more like a nightmare.
When the stress gets too much, she escapes the office and drives, discovering beauty in the wide-open spaces that surround her in the country. Leaving the worries behind, if only temporarily.
The last thing she expected to find was him.

Noah Edwards

He left the big city behind him long ago and forged a different path. One of earth and sky instead of steel and smog. Acres of plants instead of thousands of people.
The day she stumbled into his life, everything changed.
He saw his former life in her.
And when he looked in her eyes, he saw his future.
He was determined to save her.
Show her a life she never dreamed existed—and a love that would enrich them both.

“And what do you do, Noah?”

He grinned. “I pick vegetables and help out pretty ladies in distress.”

I shook my head.

He sighed. “I do a lot of things, Dani. I work in the store, the restaurant, the fields…like I said before, I wear many hats.” He turned to me, his eyes serious. “You thought I was just a stock boy.”

“You sort of let me think that.”

He smiled. “It was rather endearing, to be honest. The way you kept getting worried about me being in trouble.” He lifted his hand, wrapping a long strand of my hair around his finger and tugging it. “I kinda liked that.” His voice lowered and he shifted closer. “I liked the fact that you came back, even if you thought I was just a stock boy.”

“I couldn’t stay away, Noah. I think—” I swallowed, my voice sounding husky even to my ears “—I think you’re too special to be ‘just’ anything.”

He slipped his hand around my neck, his long fingers warm on my skin. “Dani,” he whispered. He ducked his head, his breath blowing over my face. He was so close, his hair was a brilliant kaleidoscope of color around his face, dancing in the breeze. He hesitated, then pressed closer, and my eyes drifted shut as I felt the heat of him against me.

His lips touched mine. Brushed gently, teasing me with his tenderness.

Once. Twice. Then again.

When you want a bit of naughty along with the nice. From NYT Best Selling Author M Moreland are complete standalone reads with one thing in common - lots of sweetness and a guaranteed HEA. Instant attraction, little angst - love and happiness abounds.

While addicted to coffee, and challenged with computer-related and technical thing, she relishes cooking. She loves to throw dinner parties, and also enjoys traveling, but finds coming home is always the best part of a trip.

Melanie loves stories, especially paired with wine. She's learned happily ever afters, even bumpy ones, are all in how you tell the story.

Harvest of Love is a super cute instant attraction story from Melanie Moreland writing as M Moreland.

Our main characters are Dani and Noah and I love how life kind of brought them together right when they both seem to need it. We don’t get a deep dive into the background of either Noah or Dani, but these are both characters that are incredibly easy to like and root for them to find happiness.

The overall sense I get from Harvest of Love is one of peace, calming, and support. There is also a good dose of sexy, romantic times too! Add in a fun secondary cast and this is the perfect mini escape read!

Review Round Up ~ September 22

New Release:

When Sparks FlyWhen Sparks Fly by Helena Hunting

My rating: 4 of 5 stars - Would Recommend to a Friend

Review Copy Provided by Publisher via Net Galley

If you are looking for a heartwarming Friends to Lovers story, then When Sparks Fly is right up your alley.

When we meet Declan and Avery, they are longtime best friends and roommates. A car accident changes the status quo and long buried feeling surface that slowly shifts their relationship from friends to “more.”

I genuinely liked Declan and Avery. I found their friendship to be refreshing and appreciated the slow build as they both struggled with their revealed feelings. The approach taken to the “conflict” of the story was also one that I felt respected the value both characters placed on their friendship and having a successful resolution.

When Sparks Fly does double duty. Not only do we see the romantic story of Avery and Declan, we also get to know Avery’s sisters and the small group of friends that surround both Declan and Avery. I am definitely looking forward to seeing what Ms Hunting has in store for Avery’s sisters!


More Than Sexy (Sexy, #1)More Than Sexy by Carly Phillips

3.5 stars - Worth a Reader's Time

Purchased as a "Free" Read

This was a free read that I picked up a while ago and am glad I finally had a chance to get to.
Jason and Faith had a instant attraction and it was entertaining to see them fight/ then explore the opportunity.

This is a storyline that makes you suspend believe a little bit, in terms of it had me thinking “who really does that?” But, it works for these two. There is a decent amount of emotional growth along with world building around Jason’s club. I was impressed with the balance of the various pieces of the story given how fast paced the story was.

For Love or Honey ~ Staci Hart ~ New Release & Review

For Love or Honey by Staci Hart is a brand new enemies to lovers rom-com, available NOW! This new release is the perfect weekend binge. Grab your copy from your favorite online retailer!

Amazon | AppleBooks | Kobo | B&N | Goodreads

"Leave me with this book, the characters and the bees and I’ll be one happy reader - probably forever." - The Chatty Romance Reader

When the devil comes to town, you have to meet him head on.

Which is exactly what I did when Grant Stone rolled into our small Texas town, driving a sports car I could fit in the bed of my truck, wearing a suit as black as his soul. He’s here to acquire mineral rights to half a dozen farms in town.

And there’s no way he’s getting mine.

I don’t make deals with the devil.

So when he challenges me to show him the small town ropes, my motivation is the prospect of seeing him make a fool of himself. He might have an angle, but if he thinks he can finagle me into endangering my bee farm, he’s got another thing coming.

Until the line in the sand is washed away.

My farm in danger. A town in upheaval. A man who will stop at nothing to get what he wants.

And me in the middle.

When the devil comes to town, you have to meet him head on.

And when he sneaks into your heart, he’ll only break it.

Staci has been a lot of things up to this point in her life -- a graphic designer, an entrepreneur, a seamstress, a clothing and handbag designer, a waitress. Can't forget that. She's also been a mom, with three little girls who are sure to grow up to break a number of hearts. She's been a wife, though she's certainly not the cleanest, or the best cook. She's also super, duper fun at a party, especially if she's been drinking whiskey. When she's not writing, she's reading, sleeping, gaming, or designing graphics.

For Love of Honey is a sweet take on the enemies to lovers trope. We’ve met the Blum sisters before, but in this book, we have a chance to really get to know Jo. She is set up to take on Grant (an oil man looking for mineral rights).

The interaction between these two is pure fun from the very beginning! Both Jo and Grant were characters that were fun to get to know and I enjoyed how they both evolved during the course of the story.

With goals that are completely opposite each other, I really wondered how Ms Hart was going to resolve the conflict at the core of the story and I have to say, I love how she pulled it off!

The fictional town of Lindedbach and its cast of townspeople where a fabulous addition to the story! It was fun to get to know Jo’s sisters a little better and it makes me curious about what may be in store for them in the future.
