It's a call that changes my life--and my little girl's. Years ago, playing for the NBA was the dream, but the Seattle Stallions suck. Worse than that, my old teammate is now the star center--not to mention my number one rival. There has to be a catch, some sort of agenda. Before I was injured, I was the best. Now? There's no way they want me.

But when I see the roster and salaries, it all comes together. It's a chance to get on the court again and change our lives. And I just can't wait for the opportunity to finally take him down. What I never counted on is Courtney Cohen being the game changer.

I inherited the Bad News Bears of the NBA. When I discovered the star center, my ex fiancé, cheating on me, all I want is to jump ship before the whole thing sinks. But with revenge on my mind, I exact a plan. Take down the dirty player and save my father's dream.

Suddenly twelve minutes is too little time, and a season is not long enough.

All’s fair in love and basketball…especially when we’re talking about daddy’s little girl.  Funny thing is we’re not just talking about Trae’s little girl, but Courtney, too. Trae gets a second chance on the court – and a chance to make life better for his little girl.  Courtney gets a second chance to really know her dad even though he has died and left her an unwanted legacy.  There are some really interesting parallels in the lives of these two.

Of course what makes the story so interesting is the series of circumstances throwing these two together.  Was it lust at first?  Sure, but each time they interact, they find friendship and deeper emotions within each other.  Courtney shows Trae that he can live for both himself and his daughter while Trae is a pillar of strength and partnership to Courtney.  They provide what the other needs before they even knew they needed it.

There are some interesting twists to the story (man, Charlie Cohen certainly had a complex plan in place to look after his little girl!) with lots of twists and turns from the secondary characters.  Speaking of – Christa is an absolute hoot. However, her storyline left me wanting.  My best guess is that Christa will get her own book and Fields will close the loop there.

It’s a fun sports romance that’s a really easy read.  4 stars!

“You still afraid of me?” Courtney asks. I push her hair out of her face. “No.” “I’m afraid of you.” “No beer muscles tonight?” I ask, glancing at her empty glasses. She shakes her head. I scoot in closer to her. “Tell me what you’re afraid of.” “Liking you too much,” she says then takes a drink. I turn her in her seat so she’s facing me. “You’re gonna like me even more when I’m inside you.” Her body grows taut. “You can’t say stuff like that. It makes me uncomfortable.” “Well, now I’m going to have to do it more often to get you used to it; make you crave it, beg for it.”

Genres: Contemporary Romance

I received this book for free in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.

The night I met Drew Jagger, he’d just broken into my new Park Avenue office.
I dialed 9-1-1 before proceeding to attack him with my fancy new Krav Maga skills.
He quickly restrained me, then chuckled, finding my attempted assault amusing.

Of course, my intruder had to be arrogant.
Only, turned out, he wasn’t an intruder at all.

Drew was the rightful occupant of my new office. He’d been on vacation while his posh space was renovated.
Which was how a scammer got away with leasing me office space that wasn’t really available for rent.
I was swindled out of ten grand.

The next day, after hours at the police station, Drew took pity on me and made me an offer I couldn’t refuse. In exchange for answering his phones while his secretary was out, he’d let me stay until I found a new place.
I probably should have acted grateful and kept my mouth shut when I overheard the advice he was spewing to his clients. But I couldn’t help giving him a piece of my mind.
I never expected my body to react every time we argued. Especially when that was all we seemed to be able to do.

The two of us were complete opposites. Drew was a bitter, angry, gorgeous-as-all-hell, destroyer of relationships. And my job was to help people save their marriages.
The only thing the two of us had in common was the space we were sharing.
And an attraction that was getting harder to deny by the day.

*5 stars*


Sorry, wasn’t yelling at you…just really excited. This book is insanely good!!  The complexity of the characters, the comic relief in the writing, the plot…Keeland wrote such a great book, I couldn’t put my kindle down.  I almost wish I had read a paperback because I wanted the gratification of turning the page, because it was a page turner!

Drew is unapologetically an a**hole.  But that doesn’t mean he doesn’t have a heart of gold.  He’s lived and learned, plus he knows exactly what he wants.   Plus, he likes to argue…he’s in the perfect profession!

His diametric opposite is Emerie.  While he’s dissolving marriages (and helping others seek revenge), she is doing her best to salvage those.  She’s a quirky little thing with enough spark and sass to keep Drew on his toes.  From the first time they run into each other, she begins to draw out a different side of his nature.  Even though Drew pulls the a-card for others, it’s a whole new ballgame with these two.  Emerie is a sweet, but naive soul.  She thought she knew what love and lust were, but those definitions were completely turned upside down and invalidated when Drew strolled into her life.

So why did I like this book so much?  I found it to be a perfect blend of humor, lust, emotions, and tenderness.  The writing never stagnated and the characters were written to such perfection.  I am a huge fan of Drew (ego and all).  He has his flaws, but his good qualities are golden.  Of course, I can’t divulge because you need to read this book for yourself.

In my experience, Keeland has always written wonderful stories with dynamic characters.  I think what takes this book to the top is the complexity we see in Drew, how Emerie and Drew pair, and their choices of how to move forward through difficulties.

Please do yourself a favor and go grab this book.  Make sure you add it to the top of your TBR!

Love In Lingerie by Alessandra Torre
on January 16th, 2017
Genres: Contemporary Romance

I received this book for free in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.

I hired her to fix my company, to bring Marks Lingerie back to life. I didn’t expect her to become my friend. I didn’t expect to fall in love with her.

The first rule of business is to never touch your employees. I think there is another rule about not falling for your best friend—a rule against imagining the curves of her body, or the way her breathing would change if I pulled down her panties and unzipped my pants.

Now, I can’t wait any longer. I’m tossing out the rules.

Damn the company.
Damn our friendship.
Damn my fears.

Love in LingerieLove in Lingerie by Alessandra Torre
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Him and Her. Trey and Kate. Co-workers and best friends who Alessandra Torre crafts into a delicious couple in this friends to lovers story. I read this story is one fell swoop, meaning I lost almost a full night of sleep but I was glad for the sacrifice. Trey and Kate worked their way into my heart and I simply needed to see how they worked through the many roadblocks of a them.

Love in Lingerie is perfectly paced, showing the initial spark between boss (Trey) & employee (Kate) and how that relationship shifts into a unique and beautiful friendship. But there’s an undercurrent, an atmosphere of intense sexual attraction between them that is tested and put to the side. Usually I have an affinity for one characters or the other, but in this case I adore Trey and Kate equally. There is really no doubt how much they love each other giving us that angsty component. They both work to have romantic relationships with others and simultaneously burying their own jealousy and the fear of losing a place in each others lives.

Any read from Alessandra is a sure thing but what really stands out for me is the way she develops their friendship. As well, anything by Alessandra is going to be HOT and with Trey and Kate trying to avoid the draw between them, it’s an especially sultry read. The heat between them is undeniable but there is simply too much to lose if things don’t work out, but it’s up them to work out the risk versus reward factor as they do with flair! 5 Stars and recommendation!

Meet Max Kent & Add Fake Fiancée  to your TBR: http://bit.ly/2jh5mIR

A new standalone romance from Wall Street Journal Bestselling Author Ilsa Madden-Mills…

They say nothing compares to your first kiss,
But our first kiss was orchestrated for an audience.
Our second kiss…that one was REAL.
He cradled my face like he was terrified he’d f*ck it up.
He stared into my eyes until the air buzzed.
Soft and slow, full of sighs and little laughs,
He inhaled me like I was the finest Belgian chocolate,
And he’d never get another piece.
A nip of his teeth, his hand at my waist…
And I was lost.
I forgot he was paying me to be his fake fiancée.
I forgot we weren’t REAL.
Our kiss was pure magic, and before you laugh and say those kinds of kisses don’t exist…
Then you’ve never touched lips with Max Kent, the hottest quarterback in college history.

Get ready for breathtaking kisses and dreamy football players…

Unspoken Promises by H.P. Davenport #Review #NewRelease @hpdavenportauth

Unspoken Promises by H.P. Davenport
Series: The Unspoken Love Series
on January 16th 2017
Genres: Contemporary Romance

I received this book for free in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.

Unspoken Promises are worse than lies.

Morgan Kennedy and Lincoln Gates have been in love since high school. Their friends have envied their devotion to not only each other, but also the life they’ve made together. From the outside looking in, their relationship is perfect. One mirrored of fairytales. But behind the door, Morgan isn’t feeling as fulfilled as she once did. She wants more. She wants the glass slipper and the happily ever after.

What Lincoln and Morgan don’t anticipate is that a horrific event is about to make them second-guess their wants.

RELEASE DATE: January 16, 2017
PROMISES (Book 2, The Unspoken Love Series)
**I have to say this first…if you have not read Unspoken Words, I strongly encourage you to read the series in order since book 2 overlaps heavily.  You don’t want spoilers or to be lost.**
Okay, not that we have that out of the way.  Be still my beating heart…Lincoln Gates makes it go pitter patter.  I thought I loved the sweetness of Jamieson Banks, but man did I fall hard for the brooding beauty of Linc.  (Can I have them both?!).  Danvenport does a great job writing some swoon worthy men…can’t wait until we watch Christian (Camryn’s brother) fall hard!
Lincoln and Morgan have been together forever.  She’s sassy and balances his quieter nature.  They’re part of the extended crew we met in book 1.  I love them together.  I think their fatal flaw is communication.  There are a lot of assumptions, miscommunication, hurt feelings, and emotional hiding.  So even though they’ve been a power couple for eight years, it goes to show that you can never stop working on your relationship and never take your significant other for granted.
Morgan wants to get married and truly believes she and Lincoln will go down that path. Lincoln has given and has pledged to always give his everything to Morgan…just without a piece of paper to make it official.  It’s funny how much a piece of paper can change your life.  Watching these two lovers ache for each other, struggling to find their way back to each other, made me appreciate the art of communication.
Davenport wrote some great characters.  I didn’t think they could top Camryn and Jamie (I can’t say they did, but I love Lincoln and Morgan in a completely different way).  They face real life struggles, but they do it in a completely relatable way.  I think that’s what I love so much about this series.  There’s drama ad heartache, but it’s nothing beyond the realm of real life and the characters respond in such an understandable way that you feel as though you could walk in their shoes.
I’m sold on this series.  I read & reviewed the first book, and you can bet your britches I’ll snatch up any future ones!

PROMISES on January 16th
“What happened to us, Lincoln? Where did things go wrong?” she mutters
uneasily. Tears slowly find their way down her cheeks.
“I wish I had the answer, but I don’t.” My voice wavers.
“I don’t know how much longer I can keep doing this. I’m losing myself.
I hate who I’ve become,” she shakes her head regretfully.
“I hate that I’m hurting you.”
I get up and sit next to her. I place my hand under her chin, lifting
her face so I can see her. “I love you. You know that, don’t you?”
“I know you love me. That’s never been the problem.” Her faint smile
holds a touch of sadness.
How do two people that love each other repair what has been broken? Can
we? Seeing her sad is breaking me. I’m such a dumbass for not realizing how
much she’s hurting watching her best friend get something she wants so bad.
Something that I’m not willing to give her.
The ride home takes about an hour with the city traffic this time of
night. With Morgan’s hand clasped with mine we enter my apartment. The sound of
the door shutting echoes in the living room. I turn the lock and toss my keys
on the table next to the door.
I follow Morgan in to the bedroom. I lean down and place a gentle kiss
against her lips. The touch of her lips is a delicious sensation. I raise my
mouth from hers and gaze into her eyes. Christian was right. They are sad. How
haven’t I noticed how much this is affecting her?
She pushes up against me to meet my lips again. Morgan showers kisses
around my lips and along my jaw. Her breath smells sweet, like the fruity
cocktail she was drinking at the wedding reception. The kisses are slow and sensual
that drive me wild. My mouth swoops down to capture hers. She parts her lips
granting me access to her tongue. Her tongue tastes sugary. My lips recapture
hers, more demanding this time.
I pull away from her and gaze into her dark brown eyes. My hands make
their way to her face, cupping her cheeks. “I love you, Morgan,” I say against
her hips.
She bites her lip, and a groan passes through my lips. My chest heaves
uncontrollably. It’s been a few weeks since we’ve been intimate.
Slowly my fingertips pull the zipper of her dress. Once it reaches the
bottom, her strapless dress falls to the floor. Her flawless body stands before
be in a lacey black strapless bra and matching thong.
I gently outline her nipples, causing her to suck in a quick breath. Her
nipples harden immediately from being teased. I gradually work my way to the
clasp at the back undoing it. Her bra falls to the floor and I can’t help but
lean down and take her nipple into my mouth.
Her hands pull on my hair. I press kisses, feathery and light, followed
by little love bites as I make my way down her body. Morgan shivers and arches
against me. I guide her toward the bed until the back of her thighs hit the
“Lie down.”
Morgan complies and I take her breast into my mouth and suck hard. She
moans, when I bite her nipple.
When I look up, I see a mark on her breast. I sucked a little too hard.
I should feel bad, but I don’t. Instead, I feel proud. Possessive. I love
leaving my mark on Morgan.
I rip her panties off and throw them to the side.
Morgan gasps and looks down at me. “They were brand new,” she says
“They were in the way… I’ll buy you new ones.”
I continue to torture her with kisses along her stomach, her hip, then
her thighs. My hands stroke the inside of her thigh. I explore the sexy curves
that lead to her tight little ass.
“Stop teasing me,” she pleads.
When I find her clit, I suck on her sensitive bud. She cries out and
grips my hair and grinds against my face.
I lick her, kiss her, torture her with my mouth until she is chanting my
“Lincoln, oh, God.”
I smile as I bite her clit, then suck on it.
“Don’t stop. Just like that.” Her orgasm hits her hard. She pulls my
face against her and grinds against my face. Her other hand grips the sheet as
she cries out.
Her back arches off the bed and her body trembles.
I don’t give her time to recover as I make my way up her body, trailing
kisses along the way.
“Who do you belong to, Morgan? Tell me.” My voice low and demanding.
“You,” she moans “Always, you.” Her voice unsteady. She closes her eyes.
“Look at me, don’t close your eyes. I need to see your eyes. You need to
know who is doing this to you.”
She blinks, then her eyes blaze up at me.

“I’ll fight for you. Don’t give up on us.” I kiss the tip of her nose
and climb off the bed to quickly undress.
