Truth & Temptation (Summer Love #3) Cover Reveal!
Uncategorized / June 23, 2015

She’s a liar. He knows the truth.     Teagan Walker gets around. Ask anyone—hell, ask her. She’ll own it with a smile. But beneath that smile is a girl whose parents didn’t want her. Whose grandparents raised her without affection. Whose struggle with a burning anger threatens to consume her, though she’d rather punch someone in the face than talk about it. With a new job looming, she’s determined to work her way into a better life. When she meets the sexiest guy she’s ever seen, she decides to kick it off with a bang. And she makes her move.      But he’s got moves of his own, and before the night is out, he strips her of way more than she means to reveal—without removing a single piece of clothing. That comes, too, of course. He’s gotten under her skin like nobody before him, and what’s the harm in one night with a sexy stranger? Exposed or not, she never has to see him again.     Except she does.     On Monday morning, they come face-to-face. He’s the son of her new CEO—and he threatens to bring her entire world crashing down, making her face every lie she’s ever…

Read This Book…At Any Price
Uncategorized / June 11, 2015

Geeky women everywhere, rejoice!  I’ve found an author who manages steam, humor AND Firefly references all between the covers of one book!  (I know, right?!)  Want to know more? Of course you do… If you’ve ever despaired of finding a book with a heroine who knows Malcom Reynolds from The Doctor and can manage troll agro in an MMORPG, fear not!  Brenna Aubrey has got your back with book 1 of her Gaming the System series, At Any Price. Mia Strong, a well-known gaming blogger with a ton of debt and medical bills, decides to auction of her virginity to “make a statement” about women’s control over their own bodies and futures…and also to stay afloat and pay for medical school.  She is not prepared for Adam Drake, software prodigy and gaming company CEO, or the loophole he finds in her auction rules.   In Mia, Aubrey has created an amazing balance of independent woman, geek, and hot heroine, and her character execution is flawless.  There are just enough (properly used!) techno/gaming terms and geek references for a natural and believable girl gamer without going over the top.  Computers get Mia almost as hot as Adam does, which is as it should…

Beckon Me by Cindy Thomas
Uncategorized / June 10, 2015

This debut novel from Cindy Thomas is beautifully done, fresh, and will keep you turning pages until the end (and then chomping at the bit for Book 2!). Read on for my review! Karina and her best friend Rainey stumble upon an ugly scene one night that will change (and end) their lives as they know them. When Karina recovers and moves into the apartment she was supposed to share with Rainey, her life is thrown another curve ball in the form of her sexy neighbor, Eli (who I would gladly take off her hands anytime…). From the beginning of the book, friendships play a starring role, and Thomas does a beautiful job of capturing the raw emotions, sacrifices, boundless love, and simple joy of true friendship. My heart broke for Karina and Rainey from the start: Rainey’s life is cut short and Karina loses a lifelong best friend AND an avocation in an instant. The chemistry between Eli and Karina is undeniable and steamy, and I never found the progression of their relationship to be fake or forced, which is one of the major issues I have with many of the NA books coming onto the market lately. Kudos to Thomas…

More Love for Pine Harbour:  Love on a Spring Morning
Uncategorized / June 1, 2015

Ryan Howard is still reeling from the death of his wife and struggling to hold life together for himself and his three kids.  When Holly Cresinski (aka, actress Hope Creswell) walks up to his door and into his life, a girlfriend is the last thing on Ryan’s to do list.  But Ryan teaches Holly to do things for herself and, despite the guilt he has over the feelings, he can’t deny his attraction to her.  Can Ryan and Holly overcome lies, guilt, betrayal, and fear and find their way to happily ever after? Read on for my review! “Could a town look kind?  Because Pine Harbour did.” If you’ve read the first two books in this series, Love in a Small Town and Love in a Snowstorm (read my review here), you know that this, Holly’s first impression of Pine Harbour, is so very true.  I absolutely love the world that Zoe York has created in Pine Harbour, and I really kind of want to move there now (Hey Zoe, can we make that happen?).  Love on a Spring Morning doesn’t disappoint in carrying forward the beauty and homey-ness of Pine Harbour established in the first three books.   “Milk to drink.  No complaints, no whining, or I’ll…
