Accidental Attachment by Max Monroe ~ New Release & Review



WHAT IS ACCIDENTAL ATTACHMENT ALL ABOUT? GREAT QUESTION! 
 ❤️Forbidden, Workplace Romance that blurs the personal/professional lines 
 ❤️Secret Crush 
 šŸ˜‚Hilarious standalone Romantic Comedy 
 šŸ”„Charming, irresistible, suit-wearing hero 
 šŸ”„Forced Proximity 
 šŸ‘™Explosive Slow-Burn 
 ❤️Friends to Lovers 
 šŸ”„Fire heroine—Adorably awkward, Vasovagal Syncope warrior with a lovable service dog named Benji! 

 A successful writer accidentally sends her (super dreamy) editor the wrong manuscript. Instead of the full-length novel she promised her publisher, she sends her editor the romance fan-fiction she’s written about her crush…on him. 

 And the publisher decides to publish it. 

 Will Brooke Baker survive two months of working on revisions and edits with the very man she envisioned while writing the hottest sex she’s ever heard of? Or will the constant white lies and overwhelming attraction make her spontaneously combust?

Review Copy Provided by Author


This is a book that took me a while to read, not because the book wasn’t enjoyable, but because life just got in the way.
 
Accidental Attachment is a slow burn book! Brooke and Chase are entertaining characters that it was fun to get to know. Both were relatable in their quirks, even if there was occasionally some second hand embarrassment. The secondary cast is fairly small, but great and helpful too. I especially loved Benji and how he helped Brooke through her daily adventures.

My one complaint, and it’s more of personal preference, is that there were several items that were a bit repetitive. They worked in the sense that they deepened the bond between Brooke and Chase.
At the end of the day, I was happy with year Brooke and Chase ended up and am curious about what happens to Sammy!

New(er) Releases:

Battle of Hearts (Legacy of the Maguires, #2)Battle of Hearts by Stella Holt

3.5 stars - Worth a reader's time

Review Copy Provided byAuthor

After meeting the Maguire family in Charlotte’s book, I was curious about her brothers. Rory (along with Connor and Finn) did not disappoint here. Rory is paired with Ainsley, a local news reporter, in an unusual police protection detail.

Both characters are interesting and there is a slight intrigue element to their story as well. I appreciated the way Ms Holt maintained the tension between Rory and Ainsley as they navigated through the working relationship to the potential of more.

The family and “dream” elements are strong in this story and we see more of the other Maguire brothers than we did in Charlotte’s story, so that has me curious as to which of the middle siblings we will hear from next.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars - Worth a Reader's Time

Review Copy Provided by Author

Welcome back to the world of the Chicago Rebels!
This time we are hanging out with Bast Durand (previous secondary character and brother of Reid) as he recovers from an injury and deals with a streak of bad luck. He is paired with Coach’s daughter, Pepper, as she deals with her own history/baggage.

I enjoyed these two together and the instant chemistry, slow burn, frustration to friends, to more journey they went on.

I especially liked how these two helped each other navigate their current pitfalls and see a way forward. The secondary cast here is almost exclusively previous featured players, so there are lots of “where are they now” for loyal readers to enjoy.

This is less of a hockey book and more a book where the lead character plays hockey. It’s also connected to previous Rebel books, but can easily be read on its own.

My rating: 3 of 5 stars - Average Read

Review Copy Purchased for Free

This is a book that I picked up for free recently out of curiosity. It was an entertaining quick read, but I don’t think I will be paying for the other 12(!) books in the series.

This world centers around a motorcycle club and it’s pretty rough. Zak, an early 30s member recently out of prison mistakes a local baker for something she’s not in their not exactly meet cute.

What follows in this plot driven story honestly stretches the imagination. There is very little character development for either Zak or Sophie. Their interactions are primarily physical, making some of the “love” story harder to believe.

As this is also the first book in the series, there is a lot of world building and secondary characters thrown in. So far, it isn’t too confusing, but I could see how it could be as things progress.

Forbidden Hearts ~ Corinne Michaels ~ Cover Reveal


Corinne Michaels has revealed the gorgeous cover for Forbidden Hearts!


Releasing: June 5, 2023

Cover Design: Sommer Stein, Perfect Pear Creative

Photographer: Wander Aguiar

Model: Andrew Biernat


First rule of being a nanny? Don’t fall for the single dad, even if he is smoking hot.

But that’s exactly what happens when grumpy small-town sheriff Asher Whitlock reluctantly hires me to take care of his daughter for the summer. Neither of us is thrilled with the arrangement, but he’s desperate for help, and I need the money for grad school this fall.

All we need to do is keep our distance and remain professional . . . turns out, that’s easier said than done.

Instead of focusing on my future, all I see is the strong jawline, crystal-blue eyes, and rock-hard body right in front of me. We try to resist each other, but we end up crossing every line until I’m in his bed.

I tell myself it’s just this once.

Okay, twice.

All right, every night.

But it’s got to end–he’s fourteen years older than me, with a kid and a stressful job. Have I mentioned my dad is his boss? Then there’s the past I’m trying to forget. Secrets aren’t easy to keep and mine are getting too big to hide.

Walking away is never simple but when I do, I can’t look back.

Even if it means leaving behind the man I was never meant to love.

A Little Taste ~ Tia Louise ~ New Release & Review



A Little Taste by Tia Louise is now live!

  

A LITTLE TASTE
By Tia Louise

Aiden Stone is a six-foot-two former Marine with a permanent scowl, dark hair, and dreamy blue eyes.

He’s the oldest of the Stone brothers, and his “by the book” family has battled mine for control of our small town for generations. 

The last thing I should do is sleep with him. Or nearly run him down with my truck. Especially since he's sort-of my new boss...

It doesn’t help that my grandmother (the mayor) is a former magician, and my mom is a psychic (sort-of)... And my dad died in a failed escape-artist attempt (that my mother is convinced was a murder).

Trust me, I know crazy, but I’m just plain ole Britt Bailey, Shania Twain-loving, non-magical forensic photographer. Yes, I take pictures of dead things, but I don’t see them in my bedroom at night. 

I only want to see one thing in my bedroom at night, and when I’m called home to help Sheriff Stone on an investigation, he actually stops frowning for a minute, and my teenage fantasies get very real.  

It’s a terrible idea. We work together, he’s seven years older than me, he’s a single dad, he hates all things magic, but a little taste, and we can’t say no.

Until the town crime wave turns personal, putting everything on the line, and we’ll need more than a magic bullet to get our happily ever after.

(A LITTLE TASTE is a small-town, grumpy single-dad romance with a touch of light suspense and lots of tasty spice. No cheating. No cliffhanger.)

A Little Taste was a book that left me frustrated..... Not with the book itself, but with life getting in the way of reading the book.
Britt Bailey returns to her home town at the request of her grandmother to help with a criminal case where she runs into Sherriff Aiden Stone. What follows..... Feuding families, intrigue, and chemistry off the charts mixed in with a cute little boy and a great dog.

I enjoyed getting to know Britt, Aiden, and the surrounding cast of characters in the town. Ms Louise did a fantastic job of world building without overwhelming the story between Britt and Aiden. I also appreciated that the conflict played off of both Aiden's person history and well and the long standing conflict between the Bailey and Stone families.

After getting to meet the extended cast of chacters I am looking forward to seeing what may happen with the remaining Stone brothers, Britt's friends, and the town of Eureka.

The Coldest Winter by Brittainy C. Cherry ~ New Release & Review




The Coldest Winter by Brittainy Cherry is now live! 


I didn’t know he was forbidden until after our one night stand…


I met Milo Corti during his self-destructive era, and he met me at the beginning of mine. That night when we crossed paths at a college party, we only had one goal: to feel good during our hell storms.


After we parted ways, I’d planned never to see him again. That was until I showed up for my first day as a student-teacher and found him sitting right there before me. Now I was forced to cross paths with the person meant to be nothing more than a fading memory.


The more time we spent together, the more drawn I felt toward him. When his world shifted for the worst, I couldn’t help but to lean in closer.


I’d always done the right thing. For the first time ever, I wanted to do something very wrong. I wanted to fall in love with the one person who was off-limits.


The problem with falling for something forbidden? Once you began to descend, you were destined to crash and burn.

4.25 stars - Would recommend to a friend

Review Copy Provdided by Author


This is a book that I struggled with how to rate.
When looking at just the story, who the characters are, and their evolutions this is a 5 star read for me. Where I struggle, "who" the characters were, especially Milo didn't quite ring true for me.

I genuinely liked both Milo and Starlet. They are characters that were easy to become invested in and root for to find out who they are and find a happy ending. Author Cherry handled the issues surrounding grief and the way that presents itself with honesty that was a bit raw, but also had an element of grace. I appreciated the way that Milo and Star supported each other and nudged each other along their respective paths to healing and self discovery. It was easy to become investedin the ideas that these two were stronger together.

Where I struggled - Milo and Star as presented are incredibly young. He's 19 and she is 21, but there are several situations where they don't act like it. For Star, the idea that she is 21 and a college junior rings closer to true as we see her move through the story. Her decision making, evolution, and emotional maturity are believable for someone her age who has had the type of loss she experienced. I had to keep reminding myself that Milo was 19. He presents as much more mature than I would expect of someone his age in various ways. Who his character is plays a key role in Star's character development, so it feels a little wrong to say that it wasn't believable, but I did struggle with it.

Overall, this is an emotionally impactful book that is touching as well as spicy. The secondary cast is small, but helps move the story along well. This is definitely a book I would recommend, with a disclaimer that the subject matter may be difficult for anyone with a fresher grief journey.

Synopsis:

 
A demigod ready to commit for eternity. A god who isn’t ready to commit at all. An unseen danger that may kill them both. For centuries, I’ve traveled the realms, fi ghting wars, providing peace, causing havoc and everything in between. I’ve also sown my wild oats across those realms, taking pleasure when and where it’s offered. It’s a work hard, play harder lifestyle but I’m just the demigod to do it. Zora is the god of Life but before that she was a mortal held captive, growing up without love or affection. Raised in the pits of Hell, she was a pawn in a sinister plan to destroy the world. Tossed into the life of an immortal deity, Zora is understandably closed off a nd confused about who she is and where she fits in. But the one place she fits perfectly is in my bed and the more time I spend with her, the more I’d like to keep her there permanently. My attempts to win over the ethereal beauty are thwarted when a nefa rious plan begins to unfold, leaving Zora missing and me scrambling to solve a mystery no one saw coming. As an immortal, time is of little importance but becomes a precious commodity where saving Zora is concerned. I’ve lived centuries never knowing true love, but I know one thing with absolute certainty — Zora is what I need to complete my eternal life. Now I need to make sure she lives long enough to realize the same about me.

This installment of the Chronicles of the Stone Veil pulled me in and wouldn’t let go! This story is sequential to the other books in the series and the series really does need to be read in order for the full effect (why this is 4 stars and not 5).

Zora and Maddox have played key roles as secondary characters in previous books and it was entertaining to get to know them better here. Much like Carrick before him, Maddox is more layered than he first appears. Zora is struggling to find her place and that adds complexity to things that are to come.

This is a fast paced story that builds on the world previously created and lays ground work for things that may be coming in the future. Interesting characters, intrigue, action, and whopper of a grand gesture make this an un put downable addition to the series.

Oh wow - the Carmichael brothers keep delivering the swoon factor! This time we meet Jess and his long time crush, Pippa. Ms Locke (as always) does a fantastic job of bringing the world of the brothers to life with the interactions between them as individuals and a group. It was truly fun to see this extended to Pippa as the unexpected brings these long time friends together.

We don't have a traditional meet cute with Fluke, but we do get to see Pippa and Jess reconnect. The situation that encourages Pippa to take a chance was a bit unorthodox, but was fun, and I appreciated the twists it provided. Add in the emotional growth that we see from Pippa as she tries to trust in what she sees and experiences and this is a winner of a book.

This was a truly entertaining read with enjoyable characters and a family that makes me want to spend more time with them! Loyal readers will be glad to see previous main character appear and learn a bit of what they are up to now.

Coach by Devney Perry ~ New Release & Review


Football star. Single dad. And once, a long time ago, mine. 


Coach by Devney Perry is now live! 


I’ve spent the better part of a decade forgetting Ford Ellis. If he had just stayed away from Montana, I might have erased the memory of his striking blue eyes and rugged smile forever. Avoiding him was easy when the only place I saw his face was on ESPN—and a remote control could fix that problem.


Except my boss just hired Ford as the new head coach for the Treasure State Wildcats. Not only will I be stuck watching him on the sidelines this season, but avoiding him will be impossible now that we’re working together.


Maybe I haven’t forgotten Ford. Maybe I still dream about what we might have been. Maybe he hasn’t forgotten me either.


Except those maybes won’t change the fact that we were never meant to be. Maybe he was mine once. But as of today, the only thing I’ll be calling Ford Ellis is Coach.

Awesome Dad/Single Dad hero - Check

In Coach, Devney Perry introduces to the Treasure State Wildcats and their brand new head coach Ford Ellis. We meet adult Ford on his first day of work when he not only returns to his alma matter, but also runs right into his biggest romantic regret/former best friend, Millie.

These two together are just awesome! I appreciated how Ms Perry approached the reunion between these once best friends. A bit of a chase, grovelling, expanations, and apologies all played a role as Millie let us see just how strong of a character she is and did what she needed to do to protect herself.

Coach has a great sense of balance. The overall story is fairly condensed, but the timing plays out so that we can see Ford's persistence pay off in reestablishing his friendship with Millie, doing his job well, and being an awesome dad to his 9 year old daughter.

Overall, this is a well written story that pulled me in and made me glad that I was getting started on a quiet weekend. I didn't want to put this story down! I am hoping that we see Ford and Millie made apperances in future books featuring the Athletic Department at TSU!
