CĂ©lian Laurent.
Manhattan royalty.
Notorious playboy.
Heir to a media empire.
…And my new boss.
I could have impressed him, if not for last month’s unforgettable one-night stand.
I left it with more than orgasms and a pleasant memory—namely, his wallet.
Now he’s staring me down like I’m the dirt under his Italian loafers, and I’m supposed to take it.
But the thing about being Judith “Jude” Humphry is I have nothing to lose.
Brooklyn girl.
Infamously quirky.
Heir to a stack of medical bills and a tattered couch.
When he looks at me from across the room, I see the glint in his eyes, and that makes us rivals.
He knows it.
So do I.
Every day in the newsroom is a battle.
Every night in his bed, war.
But it’s my heart at stake, and I fear I’ll be raising the white flag.

Cover Reveal: Not Quite Perfect - Rebecca Norinne

Today we are celebrating the cover reveal for NOT QUITE PERFECT by Rebecca Norinne. 
This is the first standalone title in The Rocky Cove Series, and it releases on September 26th. Check out pre-order links, and a trailer for the book, below!

NOT QUITE PERFECT by Rebecca NorinneReleasing September 26th
I can’t believe I met the perfect man ...

On the ferry to my mother’s wedding, I met the most amazing man—his love of Faulkner notwithstanding. Professor David Carstairs was funny, intelligent, and had the sexiest hands I’d ever seen.

A conversation about classic American literature led to a romantic dinner at his house ... and then a whole lot of dessert afterward. I’d never done anything like that before, but what we had was something special.

Unfortunately, everything came crashing down the next day. Because my supposedly perfect professor? His dad just married my mom, and now he’s my stepbrother!

Thanksgiving dinner just got a whole lot more complicated.

I’ve finally found the perfect woman ...

En route to watch my father marry yet another young gold digger, I met the perfect woman—her hatred of Faulkner notwithstanding. Victoria Witherspoon was kind, witty, and had the most kissable lips I’d ever seen.

We spent the day together, and then stayed up all night exploring each other’s bodies. I don’t do relationships, but for someone as perfect as Victoria, I was ready to make an exception.

If only her mom hadn’t just married my dad, putting the object of all my fantasies firmly in the “off limits” category.

And I thought the holidays were awkward before.

Review: Taming Him - Kennedy Fox

Taming Him (Bishop Brothers #1)
by Kennedy Fox
Published: January 30, 2018
Genre: Contemporary Romance

Taming Him is a full-length 100k+ words standalone novel that's filled with laughter, sweet heart-warming moments, and plenty of steam! Let Kennedy Fox take you to the South for an adventure that'll surely leave your Kindles on fire!  

Alex Bishop is your typical cowboy.
Charming, sexy, and wears a panty-melting smirk.

Working on the ranch helped build his solid eight-pack and smoking body. He's every girl's wet fantasy, and he knows it too. Alex doesn't follow the rules of your typical playboy bachelor. After wining and dining his dates and giving them the best night of their lives, he always sends flowers and calls the next day—even if it's to say, let's just be friends. His mama taught him manners after all, and his Southern blood knows how to be a gentleman. Still, that isn’t enough to tame the wildest of the Bishop brothers.

River Lancaster has finally met the man of her dreams. Too bad after six months of romantic bliss, she finds out he's married. With a broken heart and blind rage, she books herself a ticket to Key West, Florida. Tired of cheaters and liars, she’s set on escaping to forget he ever existed. Who needs a man when there's an all-you-can-drink margarita bar, anyway? That's what she tells herself until she bumps into the right guy who can make all those bad memories disappear.

Even if it's only temporarily. 

Two weeks on the beach is what they both need. No strings attached, no expectations, no broken hearts. Too bad the universe has other plans—one that'll change the entire course of their lives in just nine short months.

*A contemporary romance with a little southern drama. Each book features a different Bishop brother and can be read as a complete standalone.*

Book 4, Keeping Him releases September 2018
Review
4 Stars

Alex Bishop works at his family ranch and parties it up in the small town with his brothers and best friend. He's known for being a love 'em and leave 'em type of guy, so he jumps at the opportunity to have a fun-filled weekend in Key West. Plenty of alcohol and even more women to choose from, at least that's his plan. Then he meets River and all his usual intentions of being just a one-night kind of guy go out the window.

River is a pediatric nurse in Wisconsin nursing a broken heart and burnt on the idea of love and happily ever after. Her best friend knows the only way to cure the blues is Key West and finding a new guy to get under. She doesn't even want to find a man, but Alex Bishop is convincing and soon a no-strings attached romance begins. Then they go home and it turns out it might not be no-strings attached after all.

Cowboys, drinking, and romance...Taming Him's blurb promised a wild ride and Kennedy Fox gave readers just that. It was hilarious and sexy, featuring two characters who have no desire for love and find it anyway. Of course, it's not a typical romance it isn't just Key West and a no-strings attached romance that turns into something more, that's what makes it so fun. The two return home, but what happens on vacation never stays on vacation, we all know that by now. It turns into a romantic story, with the two discovering they share more than just lust and alcohol-fueled hook-ups. The glimpse of true-romance that they share in Key West just scratches the surface of the connection they build upon once River gives in and makes her way to Texas and the Bishops brother who rocked her world.

Taming Him was far longer than I expected, there's a lot fit into the pages and while some of it was redundant and not engaging for me, the majority of the novel kept my attention. Both Alex and River have some serious reservations about relationships, but they fall into one another easily. I enjoyed how their relationship was built upon, especially with Alex's party boy ways falling away finally allowing him to be a good partner to River. Each goes through a lot of changes, their characters developing as the story progressed. There are also some fantastic secondary characters mixed in to the beautiful ranch setting and traditional Bishop brothers wildness.

Taming Him wasn't my usual romance read, it lacks the angst I usually love but makes up for it with smooth-talking cowboy Alex and immune-to-love River. It's the sort of romance that provides you an escape, the kind that's comforting, yet still funny, and definitely worth the read. I enjoyed Taming Him and can't wait to spend more one-on-one time with the other Bishop Brothers.

Release Blitz: A Kiss to Tell - Willow Winters

A Kiss to Tell
Author: Willow Winters
Genre: Romantic Suspense
Release Date: August 14, 2018

I didn’t need anyone to tell me, I knew he was forbidden with a single glance.
He was a boy I should be afraid of and definitely a boy I should never want. No matter how much neither of those statements were true.

From the first time I saw him, Sebastian had a hard stare that pinned me in place.  And, years later, it hasn’t softened.

We lived on the same street, went to the same school, though he was a year ahead.  Even so close, he was untouchable.
He was bad news and I was the sad girl who didn’t belong.

One night changed everything.
We both had secrets.  We both saw the pain in each other’s eyes.
That gaze that gave me chills, turned to a lust-filled haze that heated every inch of me.
But that didn’t change who he was.  A man who would take everything from me.

Cover Reveal: Dear Jane - Kendall Ryan


 WE ARE THRILLED TO BRING YOU THE COVER FOR DEAR JANE FROM NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLING AUTHOR KENDALL RYAN RELEASING OCTOBER 15TH!
I broke her heart ten years ago and left town.

She hates me, and rightly so. It doesn’t matter that the rest of the country loves me, that I’m a starting quarterback with a multimillion-dollar contract. Because when I look in the mirror, all I see is a failure who was too young—and too afraid—to fight for what I wanted.

But I’m not that guy anymore, and all I need is one shot to convince her.

***
He has no idea what happened after he left. And now I’m supposed to work alongside him like we don’t have this huge, messy history?

But I’m older now, wiser, and I won’t let anything stand in my way of doing a good job for this league. Not even one overpaid, arrogant player who thinks we’re going to kiss and make up.

News flash, buddy: I am over you.
