Release Date: October 30, 2023


Join the hunt for love in this hot and hilarious rom-com with a black cat heroine, cinnamon roll hero, and all the pumpkin spice fall reading vibes! Perfect for fans of Tessa Bailey, Ali Hazelwood, and Emily Henry.

Reeve Donovan is Hollywood’s hottest, most charmingly-stubborn director… and the last man I expected to find strolling down Main Street in my sleepy Blue Ridge hometown. Especially since last time I saw him, I was wearing (half) a slutty super-spy costume, and he was facedown in an Indiana Jones outfit, searching for my… buried treasure.

With his tongue.


It turns out, my steamy Halloween hookup wants to find the location of my Great-Grandpa Earl’s missing gold… along with everyone else. The Fortune family’s wayward fortune is the stuff of legends, but I always figured it was just that: fiction. Until Reeve and I stumble on a clue that jump-starts our quest… and makes us unlikely partners in our hunt for the gold.

Soon, we’re swept up in a wild race for the treasure, jostling with a reality TV crew, grumpy historians, and my idiot of an ex-husband (don’t ask). I’ve been burned in love before, and have zero intention of falling for this arrogant charmer… Except Reeve has other plans.

He wants me. I want the gold. And my burning loins want… another go-around with Indy’s whip. We’re both used to getting our own way, so what happens when that way leads straight to the bedroom? And can we outwit the other treasure hunters to claim the ultimate prize?

Find out in the hot and hilarious new romance from Lila Monroe!

Lila enjoys writing, as it gives her a flexible schedule to spend time with her kids and a wonderful excuse to avoid them. She lives in Los Angeles with her husband, who strips out of his well-fitted suits nightly.



I have a heap of these books on my TBR because they all sound right up my alley, but when I went to kindle to read one, I discovered that they are all actually part of a series so now I’m trying to read them in order. Which is helped greatly by the fact they are on KU and the audible add on is only $3 so I can read them, and adult and feel like I got a bargain.


Ellie and Simon were probably some of the best brothers’ best friend characters I’ve read recently. Obviously, they were hiding their relationship from Ellie’s brother but for once there were kind of legitimate reasons for it. Plus, they both didn’t really want to hide their relationship and felt guilty for sneaking around. Which was a nice change from the usual sneaking around for no real reason.


Simon had the whole quiet brooding thing down and I thought he would continue in that vein, but he was an awesome boyfriend. He was so open and communicated perfectly and he wasn’t at all what I was expecting from him. Ellie had a few moments where she acted like a selfish, immature idiot and she really needed to grow a spine. But since we had an idea of the why and she didn’t stick to her stupid when it was pointed out to her, she was easy to like.


I am so glad that Cal pulled his head out of his you know where, especially after seeing the teaser for his book at the end of this. I can’t wait to continue this series.




Watch Your Mouth by Kandi Steiner is now live! 



My brother’s teammates know not to touch me—but that doesn’t stop me from daring Jaxson Brittain to be the first to break the rule.

After one steamy night in Austin, I’m all too aware of the hot, broody defenseman with icy blue eyes and ink sprawling his muscular arms. He was the one my brother assigned to keep me safe—and I had far too much fun tempting him to be the one to put me in danger.

It was just one night of tip-toeing the line, of teasing and flirting and messing around knowing nothing would ever come of it.

But when the universe throws me back into his lap two weeks later and we end up on a secret road trip together, all bets are off.

I can’t help but touch him. I can’t help but pray for him to touch me. And I can’t resist the temptation to test him at every turn.

Jaxson is smart and doesn’t have a death wish. So, like a gentleman, he keeps his hands to himself… the jerk.

But the closer we get on the road and the farther we get from reality, the less those warning signs from my brother seem to deter him.

When we started this road trip, we set a boundary. We promised to keep all arms and legs safely in the friend zone.

Now, miles and miles away from all the reasons we shouldn’t, all I can hear is my heart thumping out the resounding reason we should.

And the way those heated blue eyes watch me, I know I’m not the only one.

Meet Kandi

Kandi Steiner is an Amazon Top 5 bestselling author and whiskey connoisseur living in Tampa, FL. 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. She started writing back in the 4th grade after reading the first Harry Potter installment. In 6th grade, she wrote and edited her own newspaper and distributed to her classmates. 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.

It has taken me way too long to finish this book and I hate how much I feel like I was distracted from it by real life dramas. Because when I finally got the chance to lock myself away and stay up way too late to read the last 50% of it, I was obsessed. But that first 50% was so interrupted and distracted by everything that I didn't get to connect with it. And it was entirely on me.


Anyway, I finally got my ducks in a line and sat down and got lost in the story and geez did I enjoy it. Grace and Jaxson together were so hot. They felt like two magnets being pulled together while everything was getting in the way and holding them apart. But when they did collide it was just so freaking hot. And around some very dirty talking and awesome adult fun there were some very real and intense emotions.


This book literally had all the feels. I felt like I went on a road trip with some friends and saw a whole new layer of them. And I loved the fact that they communicated so beautifully without holding back on the hard things. There were no misunderstandings, and no one was left wondering what anyone else was feeling or thinking, it was just all laid out between them. And even though there was a lot of outside things that they needed to navigate the drama was all external.


It's no secret I love the writing style of Kandi Steiner and I'm a huge fan of her previous books, but this series has been great. I really can't wait to get my hands on Daddy P's book next. I just hate that I have to wait for it to be written first. And a side note. I'm absolutely in heaven with the light kink that is being sprinkled through the series. It feels natural and organic and just adds to the overall hotness without feeling forced or unnaturally scripted.



Release date: October 25th
Genre / Tropes: Friends-to-lovers, opposites attract, he falls first, small town, romantic comedy, sports romance


I used to believe love was easy to find.

My whirlwind romance would begin once I was ready to take the plunge.

Spoiler alert—every failed first date on record suggests otherwise.

Just when I’m beginning to fault my lofty standards, Garrett Foster saunters onto the scene.

The football star turned bar owner is quick to volunteer his services.

He vows to deliver the best version of Mr. Right—just to prove first impressions deserve a second glance.

I’d question these seemingly selfless intentions if Garrett’s reputation didn’t answer for itself.

Shameless flirting aside, it’s well-known that the established bachelor doesn’t plan to settle down. Ever.

He treats commitment like a bad habit he kicked in college.

That makes him a very eligible sidekick.

At least until his actions start speaking louder than words.

Almost to the suggestive tune that he’s making me miss on purpose.

Or maybe I’m just falling for the guy who claims that he’s not the one for me…

Wild hearts can't be tamed.


Tame the Heart by Ava Hunter is now live! 


Keeping my heart guarded all my life has never been an issue. Until he saves me in a bar fight.


Charlie Montgomery is one grumpy rancher. Calloused hands, stubborn heart, the definition of a true cowboy.


He dislikes me from the second we meet. Warns me away from his tiny town of Resurrection, Montana. Well, what he doesn’t know is I’m armed with a bucket list and a secret. There’s no way I’m leaving. I’ll just keep my distance.


Only in a small town that distance doesn’t last for long. Because I owe him a favor: Work for him for three months and help him save his home. Runaway Ranch.


But our close confines mean I see what’s under all that strong. I see the real Charlie Montgomery. The man behind the rugged rancher who yells. Beneath his dark beard hides a rare smile. Beneath his mile-wide chest beats a tender heart. One that slowly starts to beat for me.


And instead of running back onto that open road, I run towards Charlie instead.


But a hidden danger is lurking. Someone who doesn't want Charlie to save his ranch. Someone who is out to get us both. And I could lose more than my heart this summer—I could lose my life…

Twisted Obsession by S. Massery is now live!




My name is Melody Cameron…

Or so I’ve been told.

When I wake up in the hospital with no memories, I’m shipped off to Denver to live with a distant cousin who knows nothing about me.

If family can’t help me remember my past, who will?

I don’t expect it to be a gorgeous hockey player ten years younger than me. He knows things about me he has no right to know.

Yet, he still keeps secrets.

He makes me work for every answer while he unlocks my desire—and fear.

Still. I’m blind. Naive.

And when his twisted obsession becomes apparent, it’s too late. For both of us.
