BLURB

He’s my ex’s best friend. The man I love to hate. A total temptation who is totally off-limits.

And he’s everywhere I turn.


My life’s a disaster. My ex-boyfriend is getting married, my house is falling apart, and I haven’t slept with anyone in… Well, long enough that I’m not sure I remember where everything is supposed to go.

The last person I’d ever ask for help is my childhood enemy, Logan Reeve. He’s smug. He’s infuriating. He’s gorgeous. And lately, he’s caught me in one too many weak moments. A cocky carpenter who knows how to work a sledgehammer, Logan promises he can renovate my house before my parents sell it out from under me.

I can’t deny it. Logan’s got the skills I need to turn things around—in life and in the bedroom.

I’m craving some old-fashioned action, and Logan is always—irritatingly—there. As the tension takes us dangerously close to a line we shouldn’t cross, we find ourselves flirting with forbidden territory. Flirting, flirting… until finally, we fall.

Why does it feel so good when it’s so, so bad?

It won’t last. Nobody can ever know.There’s nothing real between us, right? Logan Reeve was never meant for me.

But one thing I know for sure. The man I can’t have loves nothing more than proving me wrong.

Meant For You is a first-person, dual POV contemporary romance with lots of steam and a satisfying happily ever after.

AUTHOR BIO

Samantha Leigh is the author of steamy small town romance. Her first series is set in a fictional beach-side town called Valentine Bay, and because she’s the writer and it’s within her power to do so, she filled the Bay with a disproportionate number of divine, dirty-talking surfers. It’s a hard job, but someone’s got to do it.

In the tiny slices of time she has between all the word wrangling, Sam likes to hit her yoga mat, go for walks in the bush or on the beach, continue her search for the perfect poke bowl, drown herself in coffee and hot cacao, and binge-watch bad television.

RELEASE BLITZ – Kissing My Brother’s Bride (A Kissing Games Series Standalone) by Molly McLain

Title: Kissing My Brother’s Bride
A Kissing Games Series Standalone
Author: Molly McLain

Genre: Contemporary Romance
Tropes: Wrong Brother/Jilted Bride/Friends to Lovers
Release Date: June 1, 2023

BLURB

My brother’s fiancée should have been mine.

Now, I know what you’re thinking, and it’s not quite as bad as it sounds. Linc was running late for their first date and he begged me to stand in until he could get there.

I only went to tell the girl to run. To warn her about my brother’s selfish ways and promise she wanted no part of it.

But then I saw her. The stunning woman with auburn hair, sky blue eyes, and freckles I wanted to memorize.

The hour I spent with Audrey was hands down the best date of my life. Until my brother showed up.

Now, I’m covering his butt again. This time at their wedding rehearsal, because Linc hasn’t learned a damn thing. Work still comes first and that says a lot, doesn’t it?

So, sure… I’ll hold Audrey’s hand at the altar. And I’ll look into her eyes and wish like hell she would realize she deserves so much more.

I should have told her to run that night two and half years ago. Because all I want to do now is what I wasn’t bold enough to do then…

Steal her away for myself.

REVIEW – Grump in a Kilt (Kilted Hearts #2) by Kait Nolan

GRUMP IN A KILT
KILTED HEARTS: BOOK 2

KAIT NOLAN

Released March 10, 2023

A grump who lost his family…

After a devastating loss, Malcolm Niall has spent the past twenty years hiding from the world. As manager of a Highland estate, he’s built a life of purpose, caring for the land and animals. And for the past six months, his peace has been utterly destroyed by a sexy Southern whirlwind who’s never met a stranger. Worse, they have to work together daily.

His sunshiny nemesis who’s starting a new life

Nothing about Charlotte Vasquez’s life has been traditional. She never married, abandoned her corporate job to raise the son of her late best friend, and now she’s followed that grown-up son to Scotland for a chance at something new. While she’s enjoying the challenge, she could do without the attitude from the broody Scot next door.

Join forces to protect a runaway

Malcolm and Charlotte clash over absolutely everything on the renovation project they’re tasked to lead. If there’s a healthy amount of heat beneath the frustration, neither is willing to admit it. But when they discover a runaway hiding in one of the cottages, they find common purpose at last. Risks are taken and hearts expand as Malcolm and Charlotte pull out all the stops to protect Gavin from the abusive father who’d tear their unconventional family apart.

BLP REVIEW – Tracy

What’s not to love? A Grumpy Scottish bloke who wears a kilt , works hard, likes whisky and could talk the knicks off a gal!! 😉😉

Malcolm was a character. With a tragic past he was a loner and throughout the story we find out the reasons for this. I loved him tbh. I know some guys like him (not with the history Mal has) but with the brusqueness and ‘leave me be’ air. There was a bit to unpack with Malcolm and he had so many contradictory layers that were interesting to peel back.

Charlotte is like Malcolm in some ways. She’s given up a life for Raleigh and now that he’s settled she must be feeling lovely. She’s the opposite of Malcom in that she likes to talk and is social where he is reserved and quiet.
She’s quite the wee force…. Smart, quick witted, determined and loving. She won’t let anyone away with any nonsense and pulls no punches when it comes to saying what needs to be said and telling Malcom what changes she wants to make around the estate.

I enjoyed their story line, their interactions and Charlottes reaction to Malcolm’s truths. There was definitely an attraction between them and though their initial interactions were prickly they sorted themselves out and made for a great couple.

Definitely enjoying the series and trying to work out who’s gonna be falling for who next. From the teaser at the end of GiaK I cannot wait to read Connor’s story in Playboy in a Kilt.

Playboy in a Kilt ~ #3Coming June 9

A notorious former playboy

As heir to Ardinmuir, Connor MacKean had one job: fulfill the marriage pact that’s held his family captive for three-hundred years. Except his sister’s the one who took the plunge, and now there’s nothing standing in the way of him finding a real and lasting love. Nothing except the fact that the object of his affections has never seen him as anything more than her best friend’s little brother.

A hard-working Cinderella who doesn’t need a prince

The last thing Sophie Cameron has time for is a man. Her days are full keeping her flower shop afloat, expanding the event planning business she opened with her best friend, and keeping the promise she made to her late father to take care of her stepmother–even though Lorraine is more like a stepmonster.

A fake engagement that’s more real than either of them bargained for

The little white lie Connor told a former fling to escape his playboy reputation becomes a necessary reality when she shows up as maid of honor to plan a wedding at the estate. As a huge social media influencer, she could make or break Ardinmuir as a wedding destination, so Sophie agrees to pretend to be Connor’s fiancée. But as the lines between fiction and reality blur, Sophie begins to wonder if he’s the answer to the fairy tale she doesn’t think she deserves.

Book Description:

Mason “Menace” Harrison

I’ve worked up from being the single dad on the original Moonshine Task Force to the leader of the Laurel Springs Police Department. Getting the title of Chief of Police is one of the most important things I’ve ever done. 

On the second official day of my command – a teenage girl is taken. 

I’ve never been the type of person to back down from a challenge. With my guys, my kids, and my wife by my side I know I can do anything I set my mind to. I just wasn’t counting on it possibly tearing the town of Laurel Springs apart.

Like always, when they need a knight in shining armor, I’ll be there. And I won’t let the girl go without a fight. 

If there’s one thing I promise. It’s to keep my family and my town safe. Lord help anyone who stands in my way.

Excerpt:

“If you need me, take me,” Rina’s breathless voice echoes through the silence of the kitchen. “All that frustration? Take it out on me, big guy.”

“Remember you asked,” I warn her.

“I always ask, and there’s no one else I’ve ever trusted more than you,” she stands on her tiptoes, connecting our lips together.

“Hang on…”

“As tight as I can,” her words are a promise, as were mine.

“Banks!” Ashley calls, stopping me in my tracks. 

“What?” I groan and face her again. “Call someone else. Whatever it is, call someone else to help her. I’ll even pay for it. It’ll be cheaper than the therapy I’ll have to endure after seeing her.”

“She needs help.”

I cross my arms over my chest. “Oh, I know that. I rode with her all the way to Orlando and back to pick up someone’sshit when they moved in with Maddox.”

She sighs.

I sigh back at her.

We watch one another. Neither of us says a word. But Sara? Sara says lots of words, many of which can be heard through the phone dangling in Ashley’s hand from across the room.

If Sara had called and asked for my help, I wouldn’t answer. The woman is hell on wheels. She’s headstrong and thinks she knows everything. Her aversion to physical labor is astounding.

If I’m water, she’s oil—oil that hasn’t been changed in a hundred-thousand miles. And I’m basically holy water, so it’s a no-go.

But it’s not Sara who’s asking for my help. It’s Ashley. And Ashley is family. 

Oh, fuck my life.

I blow out a long, hasty breath.

“I’ll let you come over for dinner tomorrow, too,” Ashley says, luring me in with her fluttery lashes. 

Still, I hold strong and think it through. 

Even if I put up an argument and do my best to resist her pleas for help, I’ll give in. Arguing will only delay the inevitable. At worst, Ashley will call Maddox, and he’ll call me, asking me to go. And I can’t say no to Maddox because he never says no to me.

Except for the spiders.

“Three dinners,” I say. “And movie nights with you guys every Saturday for a month.”

She grins and thrusts the phone my way.

I take it, glaring at her. It only makes her giggle.

I sigh again, just to set the stage. Can’t let Sara think I’m happy about this.

“Hi, giant pain in the ass,” I say.

“Thinking about my ass again, I see.”

This is gonna suck. 

Blurb:

Looking for a Fake Fiancé

Have you ever wanted to prove someone wrong so badly that you could taste it?

It doesn’t matter if they’re right. The fact that they had the audacity to say it is what counts.

Hi. It’s me. I’m that person.

The man I’ve been casually seeing told me I’m not “wife material” and should “lower my expectations”. Didn’t he realize I lowered them the moment I met him for dinner?

Obviously not.

Am I petty? Maybe. Annoyed? Of course. Determined? Definitely.

I need someone to help me flaunt my new engagement—my fiancé couldn’t wait to pop the question because I’m that amazing—in his face.

The problem? I don’t have a boyfriend, let alone a husband-to-be.

Which brings us to you.

Are you handsome? Successful? A smooth talker extraordinaire?

Are you willing to do all the things that someone madly in love would do?

Putting your hand on the small of my back. Forehead kissing. Acting like I’m a treasure you can’t live without. I need you to be prepared to do all those things … and maybe more.

What do you get out of this? I’m willing to negotiate terms—especially if they include a job and a place to stay. It’s a long story. 

One night. One event. Let’s put on one heck of a show.

From USA Today and Amazon Charts Bestselling author comes a “hot and hilarious!” fake-dating tale between two frenemies that turn into roommates, coworkers, and, ultimately, lovers. Fans of close proximity, one-bed trope, and blue-collar, small-town heroes will fall madly in love with this story.

About the Author:

USA Today Bestselling author, Adriana Locke, writes contemporary romances about the two things she knows best—big families and small towns. Her stories are about ordinary people finding extraordinary love with the perfect combination of heart, heat, and humor.

She loves connecting with readers, fall weather, football, reading alpha heroes, everything pumpkin, and pretending to garden.

Hailing from a tiny town in the Midwest, Adriana spends her free time with her high school sweetheart (who she married over twenty-five years ago) and their four sons (who truly are her best work). Her kitchen may be a perpetual disaster, and if all else fails, there is always pizza.

Series: Romancing the Geek #2

Genre: Contemporary Romance
Tropes: Forbidden Love/Women in STEM/Age Gap
Cover Design: Melody Jeffries
Release Date: June 15, 2023

BLURB

What’s a little secret when the chemistry is off the charts?

Everyone has a dream. Mine is to make perfume, where the science of aroma converges with the art of experience.

To fund my new business, I join a paid drug trial that’s for her pleasure, if you know what I mean. I figure the risks are worth it, but the one variable I didn’t factor in is biochemist Dr. Bradley Zimmer.

After taking my first dose, I literally run into the man of my dreams, a hot geek, who catches me. His disastrous style can’t hide the kindness behind his glasses, and he’s irresistibly appealing. But I’m running late, so I don’t get his name.

When our paths cross again, it’s like magic between me and the gorgeous geek aka Bradley. Despite our age gap, every touch between us is electric. I’ve never felt like this. Is it real or is this the trial’s little blue pill for v@ginas?

But after I learn dating Bradley is off-limits as a trial participant, I have to decide: perfume or my hotty scientist. I want both, so when he mistakenly assumes why I’m at his pharmaceutical company, I don’t correct him.

What’s a little secret when the chemistry is off the charts?

But, like any explosive reaction, the truth invariably comes out… Can we survive the unexpected results of this love equation?

Sex, science, scents, and secrets—a formula designed to either ignite passion or combust spectacularly.

Genre: Contemporary Ménage Romance
Release Date: May 25, 2023

It should have been an in-and-out job
Find the girl and bring her home.
But we’re not the only ones who came for her
And when our rescue mission goes horribly wrong,
We find ourselves stranded and alone in the unforgiving jungle.
With death stalking our heels
Every day becomes a battle for survival
A battle not all of us will win.

They pulled me from the clutches of a madman
Risking their lives to keep me safe
Just a pretty girl with an odd name and strange eyes
They don’t know why I was captured or why I’m being hunted
They don’t know the things I done, the things I’ve seen
But it’s safer this way because if they knew the truth
They’d become collateral damage
Or worse, they might just hunt me too.

Authors note: The Brutal Strike is a ménage romance intended for 18+ readers.

Trigger warning: As with most of my books, The Brutal Strike contains some scenes that readers may find upsetting, so please proceed with caution.

Kellen

I love my job. Bartending is more than just serving drinks to customers at the hottest bar and restaurant in Stewart Grove. It’s the people I work with and those I meet along the way. I know how to have a good time. Just one flirty little grin and the ladies are like putty in my hands. But they know the score: I’m a one and done guy, not looking to ever fall into the trap of love.

Then, a sweet, gorgeous coworker needs help, and I find myself offering up more than I should.

With Cameron Wright temporarily living with me, pretending to be my girlfriend, the lines begin to blur fast. She’s in my space and I suddenly have free rein to hold and kiss her.

Helping her might very well be my downfall.

Cameron

I keep to myself. Despite working as a server at the popular gourmet burger joint, I make sure my eyes are always ahead, focused on the prize: make enough tips to pay off my debts. When you carry around this much guilt every day, the weight slowly starts to drag you down, but I’m determined. My past will not define me.

Until one day, that past returns and is ready to rekindle our old relationship.

Cocky playboy Kellen McGregor steps up, not only offering a place to stay, but also a way to put space between me and my ex. Problem is, in no time, I find I like being with him.

I just need to remember he’s not the forever kind of guy.

GEM: A PRIVATELY-FUNDED ORGANIZATION OPERATING INDEPENDENTLY IN THE SEARCH FOR—AND THE RESCUE AND RECOVERY OF—MISSING AND EXPLOITED CHILDREN. ALTHOUGH, AT TIMES WORKING IN CONJUNCTION WITH LAW ENFORCEMENT, GEM AIMS TO ENSURE THE VICTIMS RECEIVE JUSTICE…BY WHATEVER MEANS NECESSARY.
____

GEM Operator Opal; multifaceted, versatile, a chameleon.

She hides in plain sight, adapts, and infiltrates.

When Opal goes undercover in a youth center several teenagers have disappeared from, she’s shocked to find a ghost of her own traumatic past at the helm. However, her worry for the missing kids is greater than her concern being recognized and she risks her own safety to discover the truth.

To complicate matters, a familiar FBI agent shows up conducting his own investigation and almost blows the whistle on her. It takes some doing to convince him to join forces with her but as it turns out, they work well together.

In the course of uncovering an organized group of child molesters, they find themselves falling—for each other.

BLP REVIEW – Tracy

I love Freya’s books and I was excited to hear she had a new series coming out.

I think one of the things I liked the most was that while the book still had a small town feel, great well written and rounded characters and an engaging story line (as always!!) the story arc was a bit different from what we’ve read from Ms B before.

Reading about Opal and the other ladies of GEM made my heart hurt. Partly because of the narrative from Freya but also because the things they experienced are things we are aware go on in the world around us…. That blast of reality made me more invested in the read than ever and I had a knot in my chest more than once.

Opal had strength of character and a determination to save others from the same trauma she herself and her friends had lived through. I loved her determination, her focus and – while she had that little streak of what Mitch (and I) probably considered reckless – I totally understood why she did some of the things she did.

Mitch. I really liked him. He felt switched on and aware of what could be going on around him, but as the story passed you felt that his life had worn him down a bit. It took a while for this pair to work out their feelings and it wasn’t without problem, angst or a need by my to knock their heads together at least a few times….
He was juggling work and home life, dealing with a daughter and a piece of work ex.

Maybe I’ve read Freya so much that I felt sore I knew at least one of the plot lines before it happened but even then I couldn’t wait to see what happened….

There’s some mystery round the ladies ‘boss’. I’m intrigued about who he is, how he knows their history and just what his motives are….

Interesting characters and at least one match up that’s gonna be coming are gonna make for fun reading.

I can’t wait to read more about Pearl and Onyx.

If you’re a reader of Freya’s your gonna enjoy this new series. If you’re new to one of my go-to authors this is a pretty good place to start!!!!!

5 GEM encrusted stars.
