He knew what he wanted, and he wanted me.

The One I Want, an all-new emotional, angst-filled new adult stand-alone romance from USA Today & Wall Street Journal bestselling author Siobhan Davis is available now!!!

We thought we were forever, but fate had other plans… 

I never intended to fall in love.  

This girl had goals and guys were an unwelcome distraction. 

Until I met Garrick, my sophomore year of college, and he blasted through the walls I kept around my heart, tearing them down. 

He knew what he wanted, and he wanted me

Falling hard and fast, I experienced the rollercoaster highs and lows of first love. 

Until life threw us a curveball, and everything flipped overnight. 

Stuck in a limbo state, I was falling apart while trying to be strong for my boyfriend. 

Then he entered my life. The hot, slightly older guy who looked like a cross between a tatted biker and a billionaire businessman.  

Beck understood me, and our situation, in a way no one else could. 

As a friend, he held me together and helped to piece back the shredded fragments of my heart. 

I didn’t mean to fall in love with him—it just happened. 

No one understands, least of all me. 

Now my heart is split in two, and I don’t know what to do. 

Is my first love my one true love? Or do I belong with the man who brought me to life?

I've taken a short breather in my reading of this series and I'm actually really glad I did. The anticipation of this book has been threaded through every book before it and it almost feels like a safe spot to finish but also a new beginning. All the OG Kayr's vampires are mated, and Janie has fulfilled her destiny. And a lot of the questions now have answers.


It's funny because this book had so many ways it could have played out. and I feel like while I was reading it, I spent as much time thinking about what could have been as actually reading the book. Each time I would come to a new conclusion on what would happen next something shifted. 


Janie and Zane actually together were a lot less tumultuous than I expected. But obviously they didn't have an easy run of it. Everything about them being together was a fight to get beyond and they handled it beautifully. I am dying to see where the series is going from here. Yet I also don't know if I want to read it. Because where we have finally gotten to feels safe and comfortable. Who am I kidding? I'm one clicking the next one as soon as I finish this. Toodles




I honestly don't even remember how I started on this series, but I am so glad I did. Because now I have a new college sports author to stalk. Not just because I love her writing style and her characters are awesome, but also because I am praying Joss and Colt are up next.


Ben and Violet had me dying to jump in from the minute Ben stalked her at the end of the last book. Because Ben was one of those characters I wanted to know more about. He had depths that no one really worried about with their own things going on. But those depths were so beautiful once we got him in the hot seat of MC. 


Violet was surprising. I spent half the book screaming that she was an idiot, while feeling for her about what she was going through. Because she made some seriously stupid decisions, but I could completely understand how she got to them. Although once she realised where she had gone wrong, she worked to make everything right.


The chemistry between Ben and Violet was so hot, I couldn't get enough. And there was the perfect balance of angst to keep me interested and turning the pages as fast as I could. Now I'm seriously hoping that we get Joss next because I love her already.



 Release Date: July 7

If only life were so simple.

As Tucker and Miranda begin to navigate their new relationship, Tucker is tasked with solving the murder of a young woman, while their ex’s begin to play games in an attempt to split the two of them up.

Love isn’t complicated but sometimes life is.

One Month with Vince Tanev: Tampa’s Hotshot Rookie

Twenty-four-seven access on and off the ice.

The headline says it all, and my bosses are over the moon when the opportunity of a lifetime lands in my lap. Of course, they aren’t aware that I’ve already met Vince Cool at an all-star gala — and that we were at each other’s throats the entire time.

It doesn’t matter that he’s the kind of hot that shows God has favorites — messy brown hair, heated hazel eyes, the smirk of a rockstar, and a scar over his eyebrow that makes every woman particularly feral.

He’s a rich, cocky playboy — a brand I’m all too familiar with, and one I’m determined to never be around again.

But after my coverage of the gala stirs up buzz, the team’s General Manager and my CEO strike a deal. To help fill the arena at home games, I’ll get up close and personal with Tampa’s new shiny toy. Whether he’s at practice, playing in a game, partying, or drinking coffee half-naked in his condo — I’ll be there for all of it.

Vince gets under my skin like no one else. It isn’t long before that paper-thin line between hate and lust blurs, and being around him every waking minute of the day leaves no chance to escape his devilish stare.

The air crackles between us. The tension is hot enough to melt my inhibitions.

But I know the way this story ends. I’ve lived it once before.

As much as I work to guard my heart, my body is a traitor — and if this man puts his hands on me, I know I’ll submit to desire.

I thought one month with Vince Tanev was a game I could win easily.

But I might have just met my match.

Best known for writing “emotional rollercoaster” stories, she loves bringing flawed characters to life and writing about real, raw romance — in all its forms. No two Kandi Steiner books are the same, and if you’re a lover of angsty, emotional, and inspirational reads, she’s your gal.

An alumna of the University of Central Florida, Kandi graduated with a double major in Creative Writing and Advertising/PR with a minor in Women’s Studies.

Eventually, the principal caught on and the newspaper was quickly halted, though Kandi tried fighting for her “freedom of press.”

She took particular interest in writing romance after college, as she has always been a die hard hopeless romantic, and likes to highlight all the challenges of love as well as the triumphs.

When Kandi isn’t writing, you can find her reading books of all kinds, planning her next adventure, or pole dancing (yes, you read that right). She enjoys live music, traveling, playing with her fur babies and soaking up the sweetness of life.

Saddle Creek TX: The Whitmores Series
Author: Kat Baxter
Genre: Steamy Romantic Comedy
Cover Design: Cormar Covers


Welcome to Saddle Creek, TX. Cattle ranches scattered amidst the rugged hills; the land dotted with wildflowers, cacti and longhorns. Small town, but home to the big Whitmore family. These cowboys work hard and play hard and when they let their hearts go, they love hard too. Meet the Whitmores: oldest son and single-father, Grady (Dad Bod Cowboy); youngest and only daughter, Daphne (Protect My Heart); firefighter and youngest son, Garrett (Ignite My Heart); former military with scars inside and out, Dane (Redeem My Heart) and the leader of the Whitmores, their father who just might be ready to fall in love again, Abraham (Awaken My Heart).

Releasing August 21

She is his best friend’s younger sister and the one woman he can never have, but when her obnoxious ex shows up to win her back, Fletcher steps in to scare the guy off. He tells himself that he’s only doing it to protect Daphne, but when an innocent, just-for-show kiss gets out of hand, it’s his own heart that’s in danger.




Garrett and Felicity were best friends growing up, but when he finally made his move, he blew it. Now, she’s back in town after college and still won’t give him the time of day. Until she decides she has to “save” him from his conniving ex-girlfriend, by kidnapping him and eloping to Vegas. She thinks she’s just protecting an old friend, but he has no intention of messing things up again.


Shelby silently nursed a crush on Dane all through high school, despite the fact that he was way out of reach: older, handsome, and dating the most popular girl in school. Years later when he returns, wounded, after serving abroad, Shelby accidentally starts a rumor that they’ve been secretly dating. Dane knows Shelby deserves more than a grumpy, wounded vet, especially since there’s nothing fake about what he feels for her.


Widower Bram Whitmore is content with his quiet life of solitude, but when he gets roped into helping his granddaughter’s young theater teacher build the set for the school’s fall play, he finds himself enchanted by the woman. He has no intention of pursuing her until he learns that she sees herself as a frumpy old maid. Can he convince her just how desirable she is without falling for her himself?

Kandi Steiner hockey series? Say no more, sign me up. Should I have read the blurb to see what I was in for? Maybe, but then again, I was going to dive into it the first chance I got so …... And then I couldn't have put it down to check the blurb if I had to because I was dying to get more. More story: more push and pull; more Vince; more Maven; just more.


It's been a while since I've read a book that has given me a nervous fluttering in my stomach as I read it. So, when it hit in this book it actually took me a minute to realise I was all balled up over what was playing out on the page. There was so much chemistry between Maven and Vince that I wouldn't have been surprised to get a zap from my kindle.


I absolutely wanted Maven to give Vince a miss when he was first trying to get her attention but then he stopped playing games and started using his words and I was smitten. Maven's reluctance was easy to understand, and Vince played right into her views of him. Making it easy to see why she kept up the push and pull from her perspective. Despite that when I read Vince's point of view, I wanted her to run off into the sunset with him.


The secondary characters are people I can't wait to get the stories of. Especially with the next couple already being teased, my patience is being put to the test. 




Ahhhh it's freaking Tucker's book. Ok ok I know I probably should have realised that a long time ago, but I had no clue. I actively avoid teasers because then my little brain fixates on that story, and I am unable to read anything else and I drive myself and my family a little nuts waiting for the book to be released. So, when it's one of my auto buy authors like the amazing ARR I don't read the blurb. I just check if it's part of a series I've already started.


So, I was all excited to start a brand new series and meet some new characters when BAM I realised I knew half of these guys. And I've already sulked over how much I need a massive industrial building with a floor for each of my family and a huge indoor playground. On top of that we got the start of Until Willow at the end and I completely melted remembering all the awesomeness of their book.


Oh well, as I said it's freaking Tucker's book and his lovely lady, Miranda. Honestly couldn't find a single thing in the book that wasn't just gah. The sweet, strong, self-confident single mum and the growling, sweet, caring, possessive alpha law enforcement bad arse. What can I say? It's like reading crack. I'm completely addicted, and I never want to be cured of it.


The only issue I had was having to put it down to parent. And the fact that since I finished it in a day, I now have to wait for Aurora to weave her magic and write the next one. Because since the minute I read Until November it's been a pattern of inhale the book as quickly as possible, then wait for the next one, rinse and repeat. With a few random re-reads thrown in for good measure.


So now we wait. Which is kind of ok since there's now a few extra secondary characters to obsess over getting their own stories. Can't wait to see what's next.



Title: Something Unexpected
Author: Vi Keeland
Genre: Standalone Contemporary Romance
Release Date: July 3, 2023


When my grandmother found out she didn’t have long to live, she embarked on a crazy trip—jumping out of airplanes and scuba diving with sharks.

After I repeatedly voiced my concern, Gram blocked me—her own grandson—on text and social media, leaving me only her travel companion Eleanor’s number.

Eleanor started sending me pictures of Gram’s adventures. At first she seemed nice, but when I attempted to persuade her to talk some sense into her friend, she told me where I could stick my advice. After that, photos arrived with snarky comments, and Eleanor and I got into it on more than one occasion.

When I heard Gram’s upcoming plans were more dangerous than ever, I hopped on a plane.

Since I arrived late, I headed to the bar for a drink, figuring I’d surprise her in the morning.

To my delight, I met a gorgeous woman looking for a no-strings-attached night. Nora was just what I needed. She invited me back to her room, telling me to give her a ten-minute head start. But when I went to pay her bar tab, I realized how much she’d had to drink. As much as I wanted to ignore it, I couldn’t. So I stood Nora up.

I knew she’d be pissed, but I also knew I’d never see her again.

Except never came a little early. Namely, the next morning when I went to meet my grandmother and her evil-spinster friend. Because old Eleanor turned out to be young Nora from last night. And if I thought the woman disliked me before, that was nothing compared to how ticked-off she was now. Or how unhappy she was going to be that their party of two was about to become a party of three.

She resides in New York with her husband and their three children where she is living out her own happily ever after with the boy she met at age six.






I feel like I have read this series in slow motion, but it has stayed with me. Each time I put one of the books down I immediately grab the next one and then need to wait for the fortitude to read it. Because for a paranormal series it has been a super emotional ride. And in classic Tessa Bailey style it's also extremely hot.


Tucker was the steady, funny, reliable sidekick that I didn't really think twice about in the earlier books. He was just always there with a joke and a bail out, but I didn't know what to expect from him. After seeing the meeting between him and Mary in the last book I was dying to see them from their own points of view.


I was also dying to see what was going to happen with the war. And for all the twists and turns that this story took I couldn't guess how that was going to play out. There were some that we saw coming but most completely blindsided me. Tucker was the perfect person for Mary. And I loved watching her blossom and shake off all the things that she had previously thought were disabilities.


The whole book was just beautiful, and I was really blown away by how much I felt. And I honestly didn't see the ending coming but I couldn't have been happier with it.





I seriously need to know what happens in my head that means after reading the first two books in a series and loving them, the minute I have to wait for the next book means I'll end up waiting years to read it. Tessa Bailey is such a talented author, and this series has been awesome so I don't know why it took me years to read this. 


Jiya and Andrew were really unique for a friend's to lover’s romance. Absolutely nothing about their journey was expected and I couldn't put it down. First the friendship between them was beautiful but the way they each felt and the reason for them being stuck in the friendzone was a great read. Throw in the absolute fierceness of Andrew's love and possessiveness on top of his selflessness made him just beyond.


I really liked Jiya too, but I am absolutely obsessed with Andrew. Between his dirty mouth and complete devotion, I was as desperate to slap him for being an idiot as I was to jump him. But Jiya understood him. and once she realised she wasn't alone in the depth of her feelings I love that she went after it so hard.


This book was just the right blend of emotions, angst and hot as hell. I really don't know why I didn't read it years ago.
