What do you do when the one you least expect to matter…

Ends up mattering the most?

Derek Pearson likes to think he’s an easygoing guy. Uncomplicated, upfront, and unapologetic with what he wants. His what you see is what you get attitude is on prominent display for anyone who cares to look, and his foul mouth is right there to back it up should you miss the point.

However, what you see isn’t always what you get, and only a select few have ever glimpsed the real man under the brash exterior.

Among them? Professor Jordan Devaney. Complicated, high-maintenance, and vibrant, he’s Derek’s opposite in every way. From the moment they saw each other, a love-hate relationship began.

But what happens when one person wants more?

She doesn’t wear my ring.
We never stood before a preacher.
The only vows exchanged were between our bodies; between our souls.
But she was mine and I was hers until I ruined it. I have to believe that every day, every step, every breath brings me closer to making things right.
To making her mine again.


I’ve seen promises broken.
I know love makes no guarantees.
But things were different for Rhys and me, until he lied, and I walked away. Only there’s a chain between our hearts that I can’t break. Even if I forgive him, a shadow from my past hangs over us; over this love that reaches all the way down to my soul.

His name rushes from my mouth on a breath, and I’m off the bed, hurling myself at him top speed. Somehow my legs wrap around his waist and my arms tangle behind his neck. I couldn’t hold back and play this cool if I wanted to. Every part of me that’s been fighting to stay focused, to keep working, to be on, collapses against him. Surrenders to the feel of him in my arms and the smell of him. My fingers lace through his hair. I scatter kisses across his face, the sharp angles and taut skin warm beneath my lips.

“So I take it you’re happy to see me?” He chuckles, pressing his forehead to mine, hands squeezing my thighs.

“Happy?” I release something that’s half a sob, half a laugh, pulling back a few centimeters to let him breathe. “What gave you that idea?”

We stop grinning at the same time, laughter dissolving, our bodies exchanging sensual information. My breasts flattened to his chest. His erection growing and hardening against my core. Our breaths mingling and hearts tattooing beats through our clothes and into the other’s skin.

I move first, leaning in to capture his bottom lip between mine, sucking and pulling between my teeth. Licking into his mouth like there’s honey hidden inside. He groans into the kiss, walking backward until we reach the bed and dropping me so I bounce a little, his eyes roving over me head to toe.

“Pep, what the hell are you wearing?” Humor and desire tussle in his eyes.

I look down, laughing when I see the young Jackson brothers emblazoned across my chest, my legs ending in the footed bottoms.

“If I’d known you were coming, I could have made sexier arrangements.”

“Arrangements?” He quirks a dark brow, placing a knee on either side of my legs, hovering over me like a promise. “Lingerie would have been nice. Other rock stars have girlfriends who wear lingerie.”

“Oh, are you referring to yourself as a rock star now?” I grin up at him, feeling whole for the first time since he kissed me goodbye a week ago. “That’s not egomaniacal at all. Is there a club? You guys have rock star meetings? Does one of you take rock star minutes?”

“You are sitting in here listening to my music in the dark.” He leans forward to tug at the zipper beneath my chin. “Maybe you’re actually one of my crazed fans. Or a groupie. I might even find a Mrs. Rhyson Gray t-shirt around here somewhere. My girlfriend doesn’t like those.”

“No, she doesn’t.” I shake my head, eyes never straying from his.

A small frown jerks his brows together. He tugs again at the zipper, but it doesn’t budge.

“Pep, it’s stuck,” he says.

“Sometimes it does that,” I answer easily, enjoying the frustration spreading over his expression as he keeps pulling and it keeps staying.

He places my hand over his cock, hard and poking through his jeans.

“Well, it’s not exactly a good time for it to do that.”

I laugh, grasping my zipper and tugging. Wow, it really is stuck. These are vintage PJs, older than I am and threadbare in places. I’m surprised the zipper hasn’t rusted before now. I sit up, bringing our bodies closer as I jiggle the little hook a few times. Nothing.

“Just how attached are you to this Jackson Five onesie?” His glance burns hot across my subtle curves visible through the thin flannel, telegraphing his intentions.

“Well this is Michael’s original nose.” I release a fake exasperated sigh. “But I do have my sewing kit.”

“All I needed to hear.”

Sorry, boys.

He grabs the two ends of the collar separated by the zip line and pulls until there’s a ripping sound, the panels falling back to reveal my naked breasts and my panties. A wicked grin spreads across lips.

“You naughty girl.” He runs a finger over the writing on the front of my calendar panties, carrying a current that simultaneously hitches my breath and gets me wet. “Wearing Monday panties on a Thursday. My little rebel.”

Title: Hardball | Author: CD Reiss 
Genre: Contemporary/Sports Romance | Release Date: March 29, 2016


Perfect ass.

Perfect arms.

Perfect swagger.

They call Dash Wallace the Diamond King.

He’s the hottest commodity in baseball and in the bedroom.

When he runs the bases, every woman’s eyes are glued to his stunning body and a smile that puts the night lights to shame.

I’m no queen. I’m a regular girl with a regular job. I just watch him on TV and from the bleachers, season after season.

Girls like me grab a guy like that one in a million times.

My number just came up, and he is as spectacular in bed as he is on the field.

But there’s not a woman in the world who can distract Dash Wallace from the game. Not for a moment. Not even me.

Until the night I do. And everything changes.

About the Author

CD Reiss is a USA Today bestseller. She still has to chop wood and carry water, which was buried in the fine print. Her lawyer is working it out with God but in the meantime, if you call and she doesn’t pick up she’s at the well hauling buckets.

Born in New York City, she moved to Hollywood, California to get her master’s degree in screenwriting from USC. In case you want to know, that went nowhere but it did give her a big enough ego to write novels.

She’s frequently referred to as the Shakespeare of Smut which is flattering but hasn’t ever gotten her out of chopping that cord of wood.

If you meet her in person, you should call her Christine.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I just met me my favourite CD Reiss hero to date. Dash Wallace was everything I wanted, and nothing like I expected. He is a young, rich, sexy sports hero that much is true. He’s also a reluctant celebrity with a penchant for Shakespeare and a personality I found completely endearing. It didn’t hurt that his dirty talking game was on point too.

Vivian Foster is a public school librarian, she drives a beat up car and lives with her father. She’s a sweet, down to earth character and I immedialtely feel in like with her. It’s on a field trip to stadium with the school kids that she first meets Dash and as first impressions go, she’s not too impressed with him.

He however is rather taken with her, much to his annoyance it seems. He’s a consummate athelete and adheres to a strict regime which leaves little room for a personal life. Distractions are not in his vocabulary but so much is his want, he attempts to woo her without affecting his game.

Vivian isn’t intimidated by his celebrity but rather with how he makes her feel. She isn’t willing to explore her feelings for Dash with his allotted time frame in mind. He can’t deny the attraction or chemistry and so conceeds.

Their relationship was a dream and hella steamy. It was the perfect amount of angst and conflict with the emotional connection to the story and characters that always elevates my enjoyment of a novel. There was a moment with Dash that had me calling foul but I’m not ashamed to admit my bias and forgave easily.

I can’t help but think CD Reiss played us a little there in regards to the blurb. Whether it was intentional or no, Hardball was a triumph and hit all my expectations out of the park.

Casey Coffield has a growing list of personal flaws he keeps locked away in his head:

He’s never on time.

His list of IOUs to his best friend is endless.

Money is always short.

Goals are never in reach.

Oh, and he’s decided to add college drop-out to that list, too. He doesn’t really think that last one’s such a bad thing, but his family insists it is, so it stays on the list.

On paper, he’s a zero. But in person, when he’s mixing tracks for a sea of bodies at the hottest clubs and parties, he’s downright irresistible. Just-right stubble on his chin, body of a boxer and a smirk that stimulates all the right nerves—women have never been a problem. They flock to his swagger and fall for his charm…fast.

All except for this one.

Purple hair, gray eyes, a raspy voice and sass, Murphy Sullivan is a little bit country and a little bit rock-n-roll. And her and Casey? They have history. He can’t remember it, but she wrote a song about him—and it’s not exactly a love song. But it is good. Damn good. And uncovering her inspiration just might be the key to solving a few of his shortcomings—not to mention open doors to his own big break in the music industry.

But sometimes dreams get messy when they collide. Sometimes life changes patterns. A past paints the wrong picture and futures get cloudy. The only question that remains is who will you choose when the dust settles—you? Or the girl of your dreams?




She breathes in slowly, rolling on her back and stretching her arms over her head. The black T-shirt she’s wearing rides up enough that I see her sides and bare stomach above her low-slung jeans, and I think to myself how far I’ve come. Any other girl, some other place and time, and I would be switching gears right now, capitalizing, because I always get the girl. I just don’t always keep the girl. They learn things, grow tired of me, or, more often, I am bored and done before anything has a chance. It’s never been the right girl, really. But Murphy…she’s a keep kind of girl. And this whole thing started because she hates me, so patience is necessary. But I have had my hand on that stomach. I’ve felt how warm her skin is through layers of fabric. I bet her skin is searing bare.

Patience isn’t a virtue. Patience is a murderer of six-foot-one fools desperate to kiss girls who sing like angels and look like my dreams.

FINLEY banner


Title: Finley by Ella Frank

Genre: M/M Contemporary Romance




It’s time to come home, Finn.

It’s been seven years since Daniel Finley left his hometown in Florida for the hustle and bustle of Chicago’s city life.

Since then, he’s worked hard for his position at the prestigious law firm Leighton & Associates, even when it’s caused distance and isolation from his family and friends. But that’s all about to change.

On his thirtieth birthday, he receives the one thing he never dared hope for. Something that was promised to him years earlier—a note. One simple sentence from the man he’s never been able to forget.

Six words will forever change the course of their lives.

Brantley Hayes has it all. Or so he thinks. When he first made the decision to take a job down in Florida, his family thought he was crazy. But, after years of living in the quiet beach town, he finally feels a sense of community. He’s surrounded himself with friends who are like family, has a job he loves, and owns a spectacular beachfront property that is his sanctuary.

Yet he still feels unfulfilled, as if a piece of the puzzle is missing, and he knows exactly which piece it is. On an impulse, he follows through with a promise he made years earlier. A promise to call home the one he sent away.

Nothing is as simple as it seems.

After years of separation, the former lovers are reunited, but Brantley wasn’t expecting to encounter the high walls now guarding Daniel’s heart.

Daniel may not be the same person he was when he left, but he knows that the first step to healing is the note in his hand.



5 stars

I derive immense pleasure from a read when the author creates a story so great, and a love story so wonderful, I’m captured from the first page to the last. Finley is that story, and Brantley and Finn are that couple.

I fed from the angst and intensity this book had to offer. More than a student teacher romance, it tells a story of a love that spans many years without loosing it’s intensity. I couldn’t help but draw comparisons of their relationship to the Kahlil Gibran quote: “If you love somebody, let them go, for if they return, they were always yours. If they don’t, they never were.”

The story opens with what I like to think of as, Brantley’s lovers call home. A decision he made years ago held great sacrifice, but also great consequence. Now, the time has come to face the repercussions and past he let go.

Finley appealed to all my wants as a romance reader. I was not only lost to Brantley and Finn’s story but I found my happy place in them too.

Paper Princess by Erin Watt (Elle Kennedy & Jen Frederick)

Expected publication: 4th April 2016



From strip clubs and truck stops to southern coast mansions and prep schools, one girl tries to stay true to herself.

These Royals will ruin you…

Ella Harper is a survivor—a pragmatic optimist. She’s spent her whole life moving from town to town with her flighty mother, struggling to make ends meet and believing that someday she’ll climb out of the gutter. After her mother’s death, Ella is truly alone.

Until Callum Royal appears, plucking Ella out of poverty and tossing her into his posh mansion among his five sons who all hate her. Each Royal boy is more magnetic than the last, but none as captivating as Reed Royal, the boy who is determined to send her back to the slums she came from.

Reed doesn’t want her. He says she doesn’t belong with the Royals.

He might be right.

Wealth. Excess. Deception. It’s like nothing Ella has ever experienced, and if she’s going to survive her time in the Royal palace, she’ll need to learn to issue her own Royal decrees.


Review – 5 Royal stars

Some kids dream of traveling the world, owning fast cars, big houses. Me? I want my own apartment, a fridge full of food, and a steady paying job, preferably one that’s as exciting as paste drying.

I’m ashamed to admit I came dangerously close to overlooking this due to it’s young adult label. That my friends, would have been a huge travesty as I can honestly say, Paper Princess has been one of my favourite and most excitingly-creative reads of the year so far.

Alone in the world since her mothers passing, Ella Harper has faced more adversity in seventeen years than more people see in a lifetime. Her character is one that embodies strength and determination and it’s clear to see from the outset how much of a fighter she is. She also happens to be one the most gutsy and witty heroines I’ve ever enjoyed reading.

The appearance of the Callum Royal, aviation mogul and best friend of her absentee father, as can imagine is met with much resistance. But when he makes her an offer that will secure her future, she has no choice but to concede. For now. Along with Callum and his guardianship, comes his 5 wayward sons. Make that 5 incredibly HOT, wayward sons. It’s Reed Royal who makes the biggest impression, and also happens to be the biggest threat.

If you stay, we’ll break you so bad that you’ll be crawling away.”

Ella’s new life is a hybrid of Cruel Intentions & Mean Girls, and I loved every second.

As two of my favoured new adult sport romance authors, Elle Kennedy and Jen Frederick produce a seamless YA novel. It’s written so flawlessly, it’s impossible to determine where Elle begins and Jen ends. I’m truly excited about this series and it it will be a miserable wait for the next book.

Interview with Erin Watt

Welcome, Erin Watt! *curtseys * It’s an absolute pleasure to have you here today. I was lucky enough to get my hands on an advanced review copy of Paper Princess and I cannot even begin to explain how much I loved it. 

Enquiring minds want to know, how did this fantastic collaboration come about?

First off, thanks so much not only for having us, but for the book love as well! The two of us knew each other before this collaboration came to be, but mostly in an acquaintance, same-industry type of way. Then we discovered we had a mutual love (and maybe a bit of light-hearted rivalry) of football and a common desire to try our hand at young adult romance. So we started brainstorming, and things just sort of happened from there…

Paper Princess reminded me of everything I loved about Cruel Intentions and Mean Girls. What was the inspiration behind the story?

We’re both fans of Cruel Intentions and Gossip Girl, and we really wanted to try to write something that’s a bit over the top. Something with lots of angst, drama, mean girls, rich kids and pretty much anything else soap opera-ish that we could incorporate. Add to that our spin on the rags-to-riches premise, and we ended up creating a determined heroine who’s not sure what the future holds but is more than capable of handling anything that’s thrown her way.

Your collaboration was a match made in Heaven. What was your writing process like?

Fun! We have a similar sense of humor and writing style, so that made this whole process really easy. We had a blast brainstorming ideas for this series and sending pages back and forth.

I sense legions of fans for each of the Royal sons. Will each brother be getting their own novel?

We’ve been getting asked that quite a bit! All we can say is, we haven’t ruled anything out…

Just for fun, If Ella was a Disney Princess, which one would she be?

Maybe Mulan? She does what she has to do to survive in the world, tries to not care too much about what others think of her, fakes what she needs to in order to get by, and all while having a protective guardian who is trying his best to guide her into a new life she doesn’t quite fit into… actually that might just be the plot to Mulan LOL. The girl’s a fighter, that’s for sure!

Thank you so much for taking the time to meet with me today. If it isn’t already obvious, Paper Princess has my Royal seal of approval. 

When can we expect more from this Royal rabble? 

Broken Prince (Royals #2) can be expected out later this summer. The best way to stay up-to-date with the latest Erin Watt news is to sign up for our newsletter at: or visit the EW Facebook page

When Jacob was injured in the war, it changed him for life. Now all he wants to do is come home to Cedar Ridge, settle in at his lakeside cabin and get some much-needed peace and quiet. But there’s no peace to be had when he finds a spitfire of a woman camping out on his property. Half the time he’s not sure whether he wants to spank her or kiss–or maybe both. He’s in a dark place and a dark mood, and here’s this wildly hot woman who is also funny and light and may be the balm be needs to soothe his aching soul.
Sophie Marren is pretty much penniless after leaving her abusive husband. She doesn’t have the money to pay rent or the slip fees for docking the boat where she’s been sleeping. She was getting along just perfectly until the good-looking, brooding, I’m-too-sexy-for-myself guy moves into the lake cabin that the slip belongs to. Sure he’s hot as the noon sun with those dark lens and even darker ‘tude, but god forbid she tie herself to another man who’s always telling her what to do. But the more she gets to know Jacob, the more she sees how willing he is to battle for her wounded heart…a battle she might just let him win.




All a scorned woman needs in this life is her belittling, philandering ex-husband’s boat, right? Ok, maybe not. But in the case of Sophie Marren, that’s all she has. In a moment of vengeance his prize possession seemed worthy compensation for his years of undermining and neglect.

Now with a lack of prospects, funds and a place to moor the ruddy thing, her life is anything but smooth sailing.

For those who have read My Kind of Wonderful, you’ll remember Jacob Kincaid as the prodigal twin brother to Hud. He has been serving in the Army Special Forces and his return to Cedar Ridge coincides with the failure of an army mission. It’s time for him to make amends with his family, which is some ways is the biggest battle he has ever faced.

His solitude is disturbed when he discovers Sophie and her illegally moored boat. Rather than be put out by her, he is instantly smitten and with her effervescent personality it’s easy to see why. As much as men are the last thing on her mind, Sophie can’t help but be attracted to her brooding neighbour. The chemistry between these two is instantaneous and their banter pleasure to read. Jacob becomes a strong and encouraging presence in Sophie’s life, no matter much she is reluctant to depend on anyone other than herself.

This is the second occasion I’ve read a Jill Shalvis novel, and much like the first, she’s writes in such a wonderful way, it feels as though I’ve been doing it forever.

Nobody But You is a  sweet, sexy read with oodles of personality. I laughed and giggled my whole way through this. Along with the laughter was a heartwarming story of a man and woman wading the tide for their second chance. A must read for fans of contemporary romance.

Page Count: 169 pages
Weston Gallagher is falling hard—for the wrong woman.
One night of passion has haunted him for years.
Now he’s got a second chance to get the girl of his dreams…but there’s just one problem:
She hates him.

Eight years after he stormed out of Wildwood, California, West has returned to his hometown as a firefighter. His friends and family are thrilled he’s back—with the exception of Harper Hill. His sister’s best friend is all grown up and in all the right ways. He knows she’s going to do everything she can to protect her heart and keep him at arm’s length, but West has other ideas.

He will win the girl that got away. No matter what it takes…

Oh, shit. He was fairly certain he knew what was about to happen. She’d shed the coat and—he hoped—she would be wearing nothing much underneath. And if she was asking for uncomplicated sex, could he give her that? Did he want to give her that?

She bent her head and undid the belt, letting it fall to the floor. Glancing up at him, she didn’t smile, didn’t say anything. Just held his gaze while her fingers moved over the few buttons keeping the coat together, until the last button was undone and the coat fell open. Revealing that she wore nothing but the smallest scrap of black lacy panties he’d ever had the honor of seeing.

He broke out into an immediate sweat. Yeah. He’d give her whatever she wanted, no questions asked.

“Sit down, West,” she demanded and he did, practically falling backward onto the couch, his hands gripping his knees. He told himself to calm the hell down but the quick mental reassurance was no help. He had an erection just from seeing her like this, watching her move toward him with pure determination in her every step as she shrugged out of the coat so it fell onto the floor in a crumpled heap.

She pushed his hands away from his knees and straddled his thighs, her bare breasts in his face, hard, rosy pink nipples a complete temptation. Ignoring them, he tilted his head back, blinking up at her as she smiled down at him, shaking her head so her hair tumbled all to one side.

“Like what you see?” she asked, her voice husky. Sexy.

So unbelievably sexy he couldn’t believe this was happening. How’d he get so fucking lucky?

“I definitely like what I see,” he said, his gaze…everywhere. He didn’t know what to look at first. Her face? Her breasts? Those slender legs straddling him, the lace panties and what lay beneath? Christ, she was trying to kill him. Slay him dead.

It was working.

Harper rested her hands on his shoulders, her fingers tracing the artwork that covered his skin. She drew closer, her hair trailing over his bare skin, and bent her head so her mouth was by his ear. “You should touch me, West. Touch me wherever you want.”

Ah, fuck.


My rating: 3 of 5 stars

“I’ve had a thing for you for too damn long, Harper. Always
wondered what it would be like if you were mine.”

One night, years ago bad boy Weston Gallagher gave good girl Harper Hill the kiss of her life. Come the morning, he was gone. Now, twenty eight, his promotion has brought him back to his hometown of Wildwood. It’s a good thing he didn’t expect an open arms welcome, because Harper doesn’t give him one.

As much as she’d like to deny it, Harper Hill has been hung up on Weston for as long as she can remember. As her best friends older brother, the kisses they shared that night have been a secret she
could not share, along with the hurt of his disappearing act.

I was looking forward to a delicious amount of angst and conflict but sadly for me, her hostility towards him almost immediately fizzled. There were however great moments of steam to keep me happy. IGINTE is a light hearted, drama free read with enough firefighters to shake a hose at.
