THE KISS QUOTIENT by Helen Hoang

Release Date: 5th June 2018

Genre: Contemporary Romance

A heartwarming and refreshing debut novel that proves one thing: there’s not enough data in the world to predict what will make your heart tick.

Stella Lane thinks math is the only thing that unites the universe. She comes up with algorithms to predict customer purchases–a job that has given her more money than she knows what to do with, and way less experience in the dating department than the average thirty-year-old.

It doesn’t help that Stella has Asperger’s and French kissing reminds her of a shark getting its teeth cleaned by pilot fish. Her conclusion: she needs lots of practice–with a professional. Which is why she hires escort Michael Phan. The Vietnamese and Swedish stunner can’t afford to turn down Stella’s offer, and agrees to help her check off all the boxes on her lesson plan–from foreplay to more-than-missionary position…

Before long, Stella not only learns to appreciate his kisses, but to crave all the other things he’s making her feel. Soon, their no-nonsense partnership starts making a strange kind of sense. And the pattern that emerges will convince Stella that love is the best kind of logic…

INTREPID by Keri Lake

Series: A Vigilantes spin off

Genre: Dark Romance

In the corner house of an empty street, there is a boy inside a box. In that boy, there lives a secret, one so dark, it’s sealed with locks.

Nearly ten years have passed since the night I was captured. Tricked and betrayed, I suffered the hours of brutal torment with death’s cold whisper across my skin. And when the nameless faces that haunted my nightmares took everything and everyone I loved, I feared I’d never be free of the darkness.

But that’s the thing about fear. Over time, it breeds anger, and when anger fills the box, vengeance bleeds out.

It’s been almost a decade since I escaped their hell, staying in the shadows, hiding my demons, and God help them now that I’ve tasted retribution and crave more of it.

Blood is the price for pain, and I vow to take everything and everyone they love. I’m no longer a frightened boy, but the intrepid vigilante, a ruthless executioner, who will stop at nothing to punish the depraved few that stole my life and walked free.

The plan is perfect, except for her. The one woman I’m forbidden to have, whose soothing touch settles my fractured mind. My angel of mercy sent to silence the voices. Yet, not even she can save me from the black void wherein my skeletons lie buried beneath the truth. Because in order to feed my thirst for revenge, I have to destroy the very thing that gives me purpose.

Tooth for a tooth, heart for a heart.

Marriage of Inconvenience, an all new romantic comedy standalone in the USA Today bestselling, Knitting in the City Series by Penny Reid, is available NOW!

MOI copy

MARRIAGE OF INCONVENIENCE by Penny Reid

Release Date: 6th March 2018

Genre: Contemporary Romance

There are three things you need to know about Kat Tanner (aka Kathleen Tyson. . . and yes, she is *that* Kathleen Tyson): 1) She’s determined to make good decisions, 2) She must get married ASAP, and 3) She knows how to knit.

Being a billionaire heiress isn’t all it’s cracked up to be. In fact, it sucks. Determined to live a quiet life, Kat Tanner changed her identity years ago and eschewed her family’s legacy. But now, Kat’s silver spoon past has finally caught up with her, and so have her youthful mistakes. To avoid imminent disaster, she must marry immediately; it is essential that the person she chooses have no romantic feelings for her whatsoever and be completely trustworthy.

Fortunately, she knows exactly who to ask. Dan O’Malley checks all the boxes: single, romantically indifferent to her, completely trustworthy. Sure, she might have a wee little crush on Dan the Security Man, but with clear rules, expectations, and a legally binding contract, Kat is certain she can make it through this debacle with her sanity—and heart—all in one piece.

Except, what happens when Dan O’Malley isn’t as indifferent—or as trustworthy—as she thought?

 

Staring at his chin, because I couldn’t quite lift my eyes any higher, I cleared my throat. “Should we get ready for bed?”

BROOKLYNAIRE by Sarina Bowen 

Release Date: 12th February 2018

Genre: Contemporary Romance 

 

A sexy new standalone from USA Today bestseller Sarina Bowen.

You’d think a billion dollars, a professional hockey team and a six-bedroom mansion on the Promenade would satisfy a guy. You’d be wrong.

For seven years Rebecca has brightened my office with her wit and her smile. She manages both my hockey team and my sanity. I don’t know when I started waking in the night, craving her. All I know is that one whiff of her perfume ruins my concentration. And her laugh makes me hard.

When Rebecca gets hurt, I step in to help. It’s what friends do. But what friends don’t do is rip off each others’ clothes for a single, wild night together.

Now she’s avoiding me. She says we’re too different, and it can never happen again. So why can’t we keep our hands off each other?

When more family history comes to light and Marisol finds herself attracted to a man with secrets of his own, she’ll need the lessons of her grandmother’s past to help her understand the true meaning of courage.

He shook his head and walked away, going for his clothes, dressing for a flight he’d take later, a flight I wouldn’t be on. He must understand that. I could never get on another plane, or a boat, or anything that would take me over the vast, unforgiving ocean that lapped this island’s shore.
Tears welled in my eyes as I stepped into my panties and then pulled a pair of jeans over my sore butt. I rummaged for a fresh t-shirt, and came up with one that said Astrophysicists Do It With Large Objects, a going-away gift from my Via Sofferenza friends. I shoved that back under the pile and chose a plain, faded blue one.
“Do you mind going to your own room now?” I said. “I need to do some work.”
“Yes, I fucking mind.”
His sharp reply took me aback. “Are you angry with me?”
“Angry? No. Confused. A little annoyed with the way you run hot and cold.” He glanced down at his shirt, also a faded blue tee. We looked like twins. He snorted and poked the air between us. “We’ve had sex twice now. I’ve fucked every one of your holes, twice without protection. I saved your life, and you don’t trust me?”
“I trust you. I don’t trust airplanes!”
“I’m telling you, they’re safe. Air travel is the safest form of transportation, safer even than walking. What happened yesterday was a once-in-a-lifetime thing.”
“Why does this matter so much to you?” I raised my voice, cutting him off. “If you want to get on a plane and fly to New York, then do it. That’s fine, I won’t stop you, but I’m not going. I’m staying here.”
Even as I said it, I knew I sounded ridiculous. I couldn’t stay in the Azores forever, only because I was afraid to fly.
“You’re going with me,” he said, yelling across the gap between us. After all we’d done together, all the ways he’d groped me, we couldn’t seem to touch each other in our matching shirts. “I said I’d get you to New York, and I’m going to get you to New York.”
“You don’t need to get me to New York,” I said. “I’m thirty years old. I have a doctorate in astrophysics and cosmology. I’m a grown-up person and I’ll be fine.”
“Grown-up people fly on airplanes,” he snapped.
I took a step back, trying to understand why he made me feel so harried, so scattered. It wasn’t only my fear of flying, and that he was a pilot. It was fear of him, fear of his skill at taking over my body. As we stood there, glaring at each other, I imagined gravitational waves crashing between us, red and angry and jagged. I could lose myself in him, in this man whose career was based on my deepest phobia…

★5 STARS

If you’re already a fan of the series you’ll remember Devin Kincaid from Dark Control in the supporting role of best friend. He’s a seasoned Dominant and his profession as a pilot has enabled him to play in some of the best dungeons in the world.

On the night before his flight back to the U.S he finds himself in a dungeon in Italy. Taking in the scene he is enraptured by the sensuality and grace of the submissive before him. Their encounter is a brief one, but the intensity remains long after it is over.

Dr. Ella Novatny is a brilliant physicist who has been summoned back to the States in order to lend her expertise on an exciting new exploration. She’s deeply reluctant to return for various reasons but the first and foremost being her phobia of flying. So deep is her fear she has been assigned a pilot as means of support during the flight.

Although she may have been blindfolded Ella comes to the quick realisation that the voice of her pilot is the same as the mysterious American from last night’s scene. What happens during the flight sets a course that changes more than their destination.

Not only is Deep Control my favourite book in the Dark Dominance series, it’s my favourite overall from Annabel Joseph. It’s an intensely passionate read dominated by brilliant writing and well a read story. I revelled in its authenticity and wonderful balance of sex and emotion.

Hot Shot AMAZON

HOT SHOT by Karina Halle
Release Date: January 2nd, 2017
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Cover Design: Hang Le

Delilah Gordon has a secret.

She’s been in love with her best friend and the boy next door, Fox Nelson, since she was six years old.

And while most of her friends and family know about her unrequited crush, the one person who remains oblivious is Fox himself. To Delilah, it’s better this way. She’d rather pretend that they’re just friends, even though her feelings for the moody rugged mountain man are anything but tame.

Fox Nelson has a secret too.

As a wildland firefighter or “hot shot,” Fox parachutes into danger every day he’s on the job, risking all to fight wildfires that threaten ranches, forests and thousands of lives. But while Fox’s job is only for the brave, inside he feels anything but. The more he grapples with his raging demons, the more he realizes Delilah is the only one who can put out the flames.

As the two friends grow closer – and more intimate – than ever before, the more complicated their relationship becomes.

And Delilah has one more secret to reveal.

A secret that will change both their lives…forever.

★2017 FAVOURITE READS★

It never gets any easier when it comes to whittling down my favourite reads of the year. The great thing is I got to pour over the feels again! Like last year I’ll more than likely be adding to it once I hit publish, LOL!  Be sure to leave a comment to let me know which books were your favourites of the year too! ❤️


 

Goodbye Paradise by Sarina Bowen: As a romance reader, Goodbye Paradise is exactly the type of novel I live for. From its opening page to its last, I was immersed in a storyline which captured my attention, and characters that had my love and adoration. I always enjoy a Sarina Bowen novel, but I have to say, I was blown away by this one.

AMAZON US | AMAZON UK | GOODREADS | REVIEW


 

Eleanor Oliphant is Completely Fine by Gail Honeyman: Gail Honeyman’s story telling and characterisation are at the very least sublime. Her ability to convey Eleanor and her experiences were at times simply breath taking. She quite literally brings to life the character of Eleanor Oliphant and I’m filled with absolute elation to have been lucky enough to have met her.

AMAZON US | AMAZON UK | GOOSDREADS | REVIEW 


 

Illegal Contact by Santino Hassell: Illegal Contact is the first standalone novel in the sports romance Barons series, and the first step to what I’m sure will be an unhealthy addiction to the author Santino Hassell. Seriously, where have you been all my life? There was none of the getting to know you process that happens with a “new to me author.” From the first page the writing was familiar, fun and engaging yet still managed to be fresh and exciting.

AMAZON US | AMAZON UKGOODREADS | REVIEW


 

Royally Endowed by Emma Chase: Royally Endowed is the third edition to series which you’d think would get harder for the author to top. Instead we get more laughs, bigger swoons and a wealth of smouldering steam. In short, Emma Chase writes an utterly delightful romantic comedy that I could not put down for love nor money.

AMAZON US | AMAZON UK  | GOODREADS | REVIEW


 

Juniper Unravelling by Keri Lake: Writers like Keri Lake are very important to a reader such as myself. She takes me out of my comfort zone and pushes my boundaries in terms of new experiences. She’s imaginative and fearless and that is reflected in writing and body of work. My wits may be frayed but her status as one of my favourite authors is here to stay.

AMAZON US | AMAZON UK | GOODREADS | REVIEW


 

How to Date a Douchebag: The Learning Hours by Sara Ney: Be still my Douche-loving heart! I’m just over here waving my pom-poms for the team Douchebag cheer squad.

AMAZON US | AMAZON UK | GOODREADS | REVIEW


 

Most of All You by Mia Sheridan: Most of All You is the much welcomed novel from one of my favourite authors. By comparison to Mia’s previous novels, its closest is style and sentiment to one of my most cherished, Archer’s Voice. It features two stunning main characters I found impossible to feel anything but compassion and adoration for.

AMAZON US | AMZON UK | GOODREADS | REVIEW


 

GHOSTED by J.M Darhower: Ghosted is a triumph. Darhower does not skimp on the rawness of heartbreak nor the fragility that comes with renewed hope. There is a subduedness to this fierce romance and its slow burn that built momentum with every page read. It’s a story of redemption, growth and forgiveness not to mention the comedic element that came with Maddie’s character. I adored her and I love Darhower’s style of writing parent romances.

AMAZON USAMAZON UK | GOODREADS | REVIEW


 

BIM-cover (2)

Beard in Mind by Penny Reid: I’m in awe of Penny’s ability to write a swoon worthy romance whilst concurrently tackling serious current issues. Beard in Mind is a conscientious and thought provoking romance which was nicely balanced by its comedic value and heart fluttering feels.

AMAZON US | AMAZON UK | GOODREADS | REVIEW


 

Wild Card AMAZON

Wild Card by Karina Halle: Wild Card is the first standalone novel in the North Ridge Trilogy, and suffice to say Karina Halle surprised the hell out of me with this one. I was not expecting or prepared for the level of intensity I experienced, nor the angst that clung to the pages of this novel.

AMAZON USAMAZON UK | GOODREADS | REVIEW


 

TheHotShot Amazon-2

The Hot Shot by Kristen Callihan: The Hot Shot was such a deliciously-sweet read; I may need to have my blood sugars checked. Speaking of over indulgence, let’s look at some of the tropes we have here: Opposites attract. Enemies to friends. Friends to lovers. Cue the Melanie Griffin in When Harry Met Sally: “Yes, yes yes!” It’s a case of “I’ll have what she’s having” and then some.

AMAZON US | AMAZON UKGOODREADS | REVIEW


 

Autoboyography by Christina Lauren: I can’t tell you the range of emotions I went through reading this novel. It was brilliantly awkward at times to the point of laughing out loud, but there was also the angst that felt heightened due its star crossed nature. It’s a coming of age story that focuses on self-acceptance and tolerance, but most importantly it’s a sweet story of first love.

AMAZON US | AMAZON UK | GOODREADS | REVIEW


 

The Hating Game by Sally Thorne: It’s a novel that topped many favourite lists of my blogger friends in 2016. I being late to the party finally got the time to read it and what a wonder read it was! Rather than beat myself up about it my penance will be to enthusiastically recommend to all.

★NEW RELEASE & REVIEW★ MAN HANDS BY SARINA BOWEN & TANYA EBY

Genres: Contemporary Romance, Romantic Comedy

Buy Links: Amazon US | Amazon UK | Amazon US Paperback | Amazon UK Paperback |

MAN HANDS (Man Hands, #1)  by Sarina Bowen & Tanya Eby

Release Date: 11th December 2017

Genre: Romantic Comedy / Contemporary Romance

He puts the “screw” in screwball comedy…

BRYNN

At thirty-four, I’m reeling from a divorce. I don’t want to party or try to move on. I just want to stay home and post a new recipe on my blog: Brynn’s Dips and Balls.

But my friends aren’t having it. Get out there again, they say. It will be fun, they say. I’m still taking a hard pass.

Free designer cocktails, they say. And that’s a game-changer.

Too bad my ex shows up with his new arm candy. That’s when I lose my mind. But when my besties dare me to leap on the first single man I see, they don’t expect me to actually go through with it.

TOM

All I need right now is some peace and quiet while my home renovation TV show is on hiatus. But when a curvy woman in a red wrap dress charges me like she’s a gymnast about to mount my high bar, all I can do is brace myself and catch her. What follows is the hottest experience of my adult life.

I want a repeat, but my flying Cinderella disappears immediately afterward. She doesn’t leave a glass slipper, either—just a pair of panties with chocolate bunnies printed on them.

But I will find her.

★5 STARS★

Feel like hammering home one of your favourite readings of the year? Then do yourself a favour and get to grips with MAN HANDS. Bowen & Eby nail it with their engaging plot, lovable characters, and unbeatable comedic timing. I couldn’t get enough. Move over Fey & Poehler there’s a new double act in town!

Brynn is still reeling from the aftermath of her divorce. In her mid-thirties and in between jobs, her confidence is at an all-time low. Rallied her amazing besties, she’s gussied up and emotionally blackmailed into attending a party. Horrified by the presence of her ex-husband, she does what any self-respecting girl would do – which is to get off with another guy.

The guy in question is down to earth and good-with-his-hands, Tom. He’s quite literally bowled over by Brynn. She’s just the whirlwind of a distraction he needs. The trouble is as soon as she blows in, she’s gone again. With some time off between his next big project, he makes it his new mission to hunt her down.

Described by the authors as a “screwball comedy” it is exactly that. It’s over the top and hilarious and I giggled from the first page to the last, only stopping long enough to swoon. Fun and enjoyable, Man Hands is a refreshing and ground breaking start to a series that has renovated my take on romantic comedies.

★ARC REVIEW★ MOST OF ALL YOU BY MIA SHERIDAN

Genres: Contemporary Romance
Published by Forever

MOST OF ALL YOU by Mia Sheridan

Genre: Contemporary Romance

Release Date: 17th October 2017

Buy Links:  Amazon US | Amazon UK |  iTunes |

A broken woman . . .

Crystal learned long ago that love brings only pain. Feeling nothing at all is far better than being hurt again. She guards her wounded heart behind a hard exterior, and carries within her a deep mistrust of men who, in her experience, have only ever used and taken.

A man in need of help . . .

Then Gabriel Dalton walks into her life. Despite the terrible darkness of his past, there’s an undeniable goodness about him. And even though she knows the cost, Crystal finds herself drawn to Gabriel. His quiet strength is wearing down her defenses and his gentle patience is causing her to question everything she thought she knew.

Only love can mend a shattered heart . . .

Crystal and Gabriel never imagined that the world that had stolen everything from them would bring them a deep love like this. Except fate will only take them so far and now the choice is theirs: Harden their hearts once again or find the courage to shed their painful pasts.

Buy Links:  Amazon US | Amazon UK |  iTunes |


 

★5 STARS★

Crystal is a woman whom from a young age has experienced life’s cruelties. Ever the survivor her defence is to cut herself off from all delusions of a possible better life for herself. Experience has taught her harsh lessons and she has become accustom to a life of disappointment after disappointment. She earns a living by stripping and is reminded on a daily basis of how fragile and disposable the life she has clawed together for herself is.

Like Crystal, Gabriel has also been scared by an experience that continues to affect his adult life. Desperation has driven him to seek help in the most unlikeliest of places, the strip club in which Crystal is employed, but it’s through this desperation he thinks he may also find redemption.

The prologue set the tone for what would be a wholly engaging and emotional story and I never cease to be amazed by Mia’s ability to touch me with her words. Gabriel is a character whose light refused to be diminished by the darkness that so nearly snuffed it out. Through his strength he was able to help Crystal find her own. With all her brashness Crystal was a delicate character, and it was incredibly heart-warming to witness her discover her own self-worth.

Most of All You is the much welcomed novel from one of my favourite authors. By comparison to Mia’s previous novels, its closest is style and sentiment to one of my most cherished, Archer’s Voice. It features two stunning main characters I found impossible to feel anything but compassion and adoration for. As a reader I found myself evolving from empathiser to cheer leader as they overcame the demons and fought for a life they wholeheartedly deserved.


About the Author:
