Jasper Vale by Devney Perry is now live!


Eloise Eden's pride and joy is her family's hotel in Quincy, Montana. Her lifelong dream is to own The Eloise Inn. All she has to do is prove to her parents that she's the epitome of responsible. That her days of being duped and making reckless decisions are history. She's so close she can taste it.

Until after one weekend in Las Vegas, she comes home married to a stranger.

Jasper must have put her under a spell with those soul-deep eyes because after a single night together, they woke up husband and wife. Her only hope is to keep this marriage a secret until it's annulled. Then she'll pretend it never happened.

Except Jasper begs her to stay married. To fake it for three months so she can accompany him to a wedding. Maybe she's lost her mind to agree. But her brooding husband seems desperate. It's only three months, right? Then she'll say goodbye to Jasper Vale, and with any luck, hello to her new hotel.

Promise Me Always by A.L. Jackson is now live!

I should know better than to let Tessa McDaniels pretend to be my fiancée.

I'm a dark, dangerous disaster who leaves destruction in his wake.

But when she offers to pretend to marry me to help me get my kids back, I can't refuse. They are the one thing I have left to fight for.

Milo Hendricks found me at my lowest.

Battered and broken by my ex with no place to call home. When he insists I stay at his cabin with him, he sparks the feelings I've tried to suppress.

He's only supposed to be my friend, but every time he comes in the room, he makes my knees weak.

This gorgeous, tatted, mountain-of-a-man who's riddled with secrets.

Tessa is everything I crave but can't have.

I shouldn't touch her.

Shouldn't make it real.

But she's a red-headed flame I can't resist, and I can't help but take her to my bed.

Now we're falling into an abyss of passion and need.

Loving her is easy.

Only we're tied in ways we don't know.

I'll do anything to protect her, but it's my past that might destroy her in the end…

Kandi Steiner has revealed the gorgeous cover for Hail Mary!

Releasing: February 15, 2023

Cover Design: Kandi Steiner

Photographer: Ren Saliba

Model: Anonymous

Leo F*cking Hernandez.

North Boston University’s star running back, notorious bachelor, and number one on my people I would murder if I could get away with it list.

And now?

He’s my new roommate.

I used to think I loved him.

But that was before I hated him.

He doesn’t remember who I am, or how he made my life miserable for years. And before I unknowingly moved across the street from him, I couldn’t have cared less. I was living my life despite him and what happened that summer, chasing my dream of becoming a tattoo artist.

“The Pit,” as the university so gracefully nicknamed the house he lives in with three other football players, has served as nothing more than a pain in my ass and a constant reminder of the boy who broke my heart. Watching him parade his one-night-stands in and out of it never helped, either.

But with rent this cheap and so close to the tattoo shop, I’ve learned to ignore him — no matter how he’s tried to get under my skin.

At least, until this summer. Because when a water and mold disaster leaves me with no choice but to vacate my house, I have nowhere to go. And Leo Hernandez offers me a deal I can’t refuse.

Live at The Pit with him and the guys, free of charge, until my landlord fixes this mess.

Ignoring him was easy when I lived across the street, but in the same house, with him shirtless half the time and watching me with his cocky grin and searing gaze? It’s impossible.

Still, I have to try. I have to push him away, even when he makes it infuriatingly difficult to do so.

He’s broken my heart once.

I won't let him do it again.

I’m struggling to review this book and honestly, I think I kind of did it an injustice reading it now. I was in the mood to read a book but I couldn’t pick one, so I just jumped into this one and I wasn’t really feeling it. Second chance romance aren’t my favourite, and I didn’t read the blurb going in. So, when Emmy woke up alone I was annoyed AF and I didn’t really want to keep reading because I wanted an over the top, full on possessive alpha.


I had moments of intense dislike for each of the characters actions but overall, I liked both characters. They just kept making decisions that were stupid or annoying and making me want to smack them both in the head. But then they would work it out between themselves, and I would be forced to get over it and see what was going to happen next.


Emmy was a lot easier for me to like and understand her behaviour. And I did like the twists and turns of their story. It all felt incredibly fated and watching them figure out their issues and learn to work on them together was fun and had me desperate to keep flipping the pages to see who was doing what and why.


Getting more of the town and characters was awesome and I love that these are all on KU now so I can binge them whenever I want, hopefully I read the next one when I am in a better mood and more prepared for it.




I have been looking forward to reading this book for ages. For so long that the series wasn’t on KU so I bought it with an audible credit and then had so much pop up that I kept putting it off. Because I knew once I read it I would want to binge the whole series and I would need a week or so of a clear calendar and that just wasn’t happening until now. So finally, I put on my headphones and grabbed it on KU so I could adult or read.


First, I want to say that there was nothing wrong with the narration, just that I found it hard to get lost in it and I didn’t really connect with Gigi or Jess. And honestly, I just think it was the disconnect between the American voices and my Aussie ear. Because once I had to put the headphones down and pick the book up, I was able to connect a little more with the story and characters.


I think it also helped that when I put the headphones down and picked up the book all my errands were done, and my stress levels were lower, so I was a little more understanding of the characters actions and reactions. Whereas before that point I was being a bit of a judgy bitch. Once I relaxed and thought it through, I realised that the things that I was getting annoyed about were things that I would do in the same situation.


Gigi was such a great mother and I loved that she always put her daughter first. Jess started out shaky but since the book was told in dual point of view, very little of Jess’s point of view, but enough for me to get a feel for him. If we only had Gigi’s point of view, I probably wouldn’t have believed his motives entirely. But as it was, I ended up being besotted and loving Jess and Gigi together.


The story was intriguing, and I couldn’t put it down. And now I can binge the rest of the series in KU.

Title: Toe the Line
Author: Penelope Ward
Genre: Standalone Contemporary Romance
Trope: Friends-to-Lovers
Cover Design: Letitia Hasser, RBA Designs
Photographer: Martin Traynor
Model: Christian Ganon @christianganon46
Release Date: February 27, 2023


From New York Times bestselling author Penelope Ward comes a friends-to-lovers story spanning more than a decade…

At first, I thought I’d hate spending the summer with Archie Remington—the conceited son of my parents’ friends.
What I knew about Archie: he was gorgeous, pre-law, and had always treated me like I didn’t exist when we were younger.
When our families bought a house together on an island in Maine, he and I were forced to share a bathroom.
The boy I remembered was now a full-grown man—but with the same attitude.
After a rough start, Archie and I unexpectedly started getting along one day and eventually became friends. We shared secrets and bonded during our morning jogs. I discovered that Archie had a wild spirit and that he struggled to conform to his father’s expectations.
Things were cool until I had to go and ruin it, getting drunk one night, and blurting out my fantasy—involving him.
I took it back, but it was too late. Archie had heard me loud and clear. After that, we never quite knew how to toe the line.
When that summer came to an abrupt and shocking end, I headed back to college, unsure if anything would ever be the same again.
Across the miles over the years, he and I stayed in touch as friends, but fate and timing always kept us from becoming more.
You know the saying: If two people are meant to be, they’ll find their way back to each other?
Let’s just say Archie came back into my life in a way I would’ve never expected.
And this time, my heart would really be put to the test.

I can’t tell you why it took me so long to read this series, I love Tessa’s writing and her books are always ones that make me sigh after putting them down and yet this one just lingered on my TBR. And then I grabbed It Happened One Summer in KU and fell in love with Piper and Brendan. So obviously I had to jump right into this one, after I got over the fact, I had to pay $10 for it. I know that it’s worth it but for some reason it always hits me when it's more than a cup of coffee. But in all honesty I barely blinked when I one clicked because I had to read Fox and Hannah’s book.


I wasn’t disappointed in the slightest. I had a feeling I was going to love Fox when I got to see more of him. There is something about a redeemed man-whore that just pushes my happy buttons in a book. And seeing him be sweet and soft with Hannah in small doses in the previous book I was so ready to see if he was this brash womaniser or a sensitive soul, we got those small moments with. And my god was I heartbroken to see the depth of Fox’s soul.


It’s funny that the way we speak about men’s sexuality is almost a complete contrast to the way we address women’s. And I honestly never thought about the effect and pressure that those things can put on a young man. But reading this book actually made me think about those things and feeling sad that there’s so little care given to men’s emotional wellbeing.


Wow that got deep fast. But seriously I loved getting to see the softer side of Fox. It was almost as delicious as the yummy, growling, possessive, hard side of him. Hannah was such a perfect contrast in her caring nature and growing into her own confidence having to live out from under the shadow of her larger-than-life sister. This book was one that really made me sit back and think while I inhaled every word. And although I did do a lot of contemplation of toxic masculinity the book was light and fun and easy to read. I’m going to miss these sisters and their sexy sea captains.



Tessa Bailey writes the best dirty talkers. Honestly, it's just a fact at this point that the hero is going to say things that cause a quiver. Which is a tall task when a lot of the time it comes off as more cringy than hot. But somehow Tessa has it down to a science.

The way this book was written in the third person took me a while to get my head around because it's been forever since the last time, I have read a book that wasn't written in first. But the story had me so in love with both characters that I soon didn't even really notice.

Piper had so much personal growth that it was impossible not to be in her corner. And I felt so sorry for her despite the fact that she had everything money could buy. I really wanted to smack her mum in the face and ask her to be a parent to her daughter's.

Brendan was the perfect hero for Piper. He was so solid and dependable and owned his mistakes. I loved how all in he was from the second he realised that she could be it for him. He gave such amazing boyfriend and was just such a man. I loved everything about these two together and I can't wait to dive into Hannah's book even if I feel queasy paying that much for an ebook.

I needed a good girl to save my bad reputation.

With too much on my plate, the very last thing on my mind was a relationship—the football draft was looming and dating got in the way. I never understood why my teammates bothered with girlfriends. None of us had the time.
When my sports agent suggested that being seen in public with a respectable girl would be good for my bad reputation, I couldn’t think of a single person to help me out. The only girls I knew weren’t wifey material, and the ones who were? Might catch feelings.
Except Ryann Winters.
Responsible. Sarcastic. Smart. Ryann was perfect but there was one clincher: she was my teammates ex-girlfriend and I had recently been paid by him to dump her.
Not the best start to a fake relationship…

As soon as I started reading this book I was going insane with the massive amount of deja vu I was having over these Colter brothers and the three neighbours. I kept looking at random books trying to remember who they were related to and why I remembered moving them into their house. And then finally the boys mentioned Duke and Posey and it all flooded in and the book got this extra sprinkle of awesome.

Because despite the fact this is the first book in the series and as such is a complete stand-alone I feel like I kinda know these boys. Even though we literally got like a page of them in The Secret Roommate. And starting with Dallas who is the most like Duke in personality was awesome. And now I'm thinking I need to find out if Elias has a book and go one click it.

Anyway back to this book. Sara Ney writes some books that I can't get enough of and then sometimes she writes books I don't like. So every time I pick one up I'm hoping I'm going to love it and this one I definitely did. Because Dallas is the type of hero you can't help but get swoony over. He isn't a manwhore, he isn't a shallow party boy, he doesn't need redemption, he's just busy and not looking for anything to distract him from his goal.

And Ryann was the perfect distraction because she isn't all that interested either. She was just off living her life not caring about the college social scene or who's who on campus. And although she didn't make Dallas jump through hoops he still had to work for it.

The slow build between these guys was great, especially with the amount of chemistry flying around between them. I can't wait to see the twins get their books and hopefully we get more of Duke and Posey as well as Dallas and Ryann in the future. Would also be great to see if Diego finds love where Dallas is thinking he should look. Hint hint.

I always feel bad when I can't remember the last book in a series. All I can remember was that I loved it but that's not unusual for an Ilsa Madden Mills book. And I feel like this book has been on my TBR forever. So, I probably shouldn't feel too bad for not remembering a book I read 200 books ago, but I am bummed I can't remember more about Tuck.


Although that said I feel like we wouldn't have gotten to know much about the real Tuck. Because so much of his personality he was hiding from everyone around him, and he really needed Francesca to give him the safety to let the ugly show. Both of them had so many hidden scars and watching them expose them to each other was awesome. I loved seeing them grow and deal with their past traumas and let each other in.


I had a few moments in this book where I felt like there was a bit too much "extra" added in. And things that were left kind of unfinished or had a twist that felt like it turned left when I personally thought it should have gone right. As a break from reality, I loved it, but it just felt like there were too many additional diamonds thrown in for reality.


And now I'm hoping that the next book in the series isn't who I was previously hoping it would be.




The Act of Trusting by Lexi Bissen is now live!

There was a sadness in her clear, gray eyes that I could see she tried to hide. A fight with her inner demons she didn't want to show anyone...

Camden Collins
Life was going well for me. I was on the right track: captain of the soccer team, grades were passing, and I had the respect of my team. Girls threw themselves at me. It was every twenty-year-old's dream.
Then I saw her...
One look at her, and it all changed. Something about her drew me in. A sense of protectiveness to guard this small, sad girl. In her eyes, I could see the fight she had within herself...and I wanted to be there for her. To protect her and be someone to lean on while she fought whatever it was. Nothing else seemed to matter but the dark-haired, beautiful girl I couldn't stay away from.

Blaire Wentworth
I wasn't the same girl I was four years ago. My life was stolen from me one night and I'd never have the chance to get old me back. Now I was just existing, not living. I went through the motions of my everyday routine, staying quiet and keeping to myself. Trusting and letting people in was a constant struggle.
Until he showed up...
I'd never seen someone like him before. Not once had I described a guy as beautiful, but that's what he was. He struck something in me, and I didn't know how to handle that. I was chasing nightmares no one knew about. Ones I kept to myself for a reason. Could I let this new person into my life that I had kept closed off from many for far too long? What if I let my guard down and he ended up destroying me?
And that became my greatest fear...

Title: The Game
Author: Vi Keeland
Genre: Standalone Contemporary Romance
Release Date: January 16, 2023


It started out like any other Tuesday.

I spent twelve hours writing algorithms for one of the largest companies in the world and then came home to work on a pet project of mine—feeding facts about the men I knew into a formula to find my perfect match before my twenties came barreling to a close.

But then a man knocked on my door and handed me some papers that turned my life upside down.

Apparently, a father I never knew existed had left me something in his will. That something turned out to be part ownership in a professional football team.

Next thing I knew, I was learning a sport I knew nothing about by spending time with the team’s quarterback who was out with an injury, a man who my formula would definitely determine was all wrong for me.

Christian Knox was too handsome and confident for his own good and could have any woman he wanted. Only lately the only woman he seemed to want was me.

But there was no way I was getting involved when I was now his boss, even if he was insanely gorgeous and had the dirtiest mouth I’d ever come across.

It would be wrong, wouldn’t it?

Probably. But you know what they say about things that are wrong...sometimes they feel so right.
