Offside by Sierra Hill is now live!




I'm a veteran hockey player known as Ballas the Beast. All I want to do is continue playing hockey and extend my contract with the Vikings for another year.
But those goals might be thwarted because of her.
Karis Spurlock is the niece of the team owner, known as the Ice Queen because she comes across cold as ice.
When we hooked up in Vegas six months ago, she was anything but cold...she was hot and daring and it was supposed to be a one-time thing. No strings. No attachments. No need to ever interact again.
Just the way I like it.
Yet here I am negotiating what could be the terms of my final contract with the one woman I slept with in Vegas.
The same woman who now owns the Vancouver Vikings through a tragic twist of fate. And who also is now my new boss.

This is a new series from Sierra Hill. And although I've enjoyed some of her previous work, I feel like it's been forever since I've read any of it. And I kind of went into this one blind. Then I got the link for the little novella and figured I'd read that first.


I really can't decide if that was a mistake or not. It set me up to really like Karis. And it had some pretty steamy scenes and a bit of background info on how Karis and Ballas know each other. But then it kind of ended and I jumped into the book, and I sort of immediately disliked Ballas.


And despite the fact Karis was this awesome boss babe, I felt like she needed to call Ballas out more and make him grovel. Thankfully the book is dual POV so getting Ballas's thoughts and feelings on things made him a lot less unlikable. It didn't help that he never actually said any of the important stuff to Karis and I think she not just deserved it, but really needed it.


Now that all said, Karis was awesome, and she did act very maturely and professionally. And Ballas wasn't terrible, he just was clueless and in a position that he didn't know how to deal with. And I was very invested in seeing this all play out. I just really love some serious grovel.


Karla Sorensen

Release Date: January 24





There’s only one course of action when your dad wants you to marry a clammy-handed wimp to make one of his board members happy—you get yourself stuck in an elevator with a hot stranger and have the steamiest make-out session of your life. Years of etiquette lessons went out the window thanks to Cameron Wilder, who managed to unleash my hidden bad girl with naught but his talented mouth and deliciously rough hands.

Afterwards, he went back to his small-town life, and I marched home to inform my dad there would be no business-centric nuptials. As punishment, he shipped me off to Sisters, Oregon and demanded I turn a healthy profit on a not-so-healthy property.

You see where I’m going with this—the buttoned-up city girl stuck in a small town hires a local builder to help her … and he’s the hot stranger from the elevator. Turns out, I have a weakness for the broad-shouldered nice guy who’s not so nice behind closed doors. Keeping things professional gets harder the longer I’m in town, until the only lesson I have left to learn is how to keep both our hearts from getting broken.

This book kind of blew me away. I don't know exactly what I was expecting when I started reading but I just got more. I love Micalea’s The Boys series so when I saw the promo for this, I jumped at it before I even read the blurb.


Then I read the blurb, and I was still not sure how it was going to go. But I didn't expect to be captivated in the life of Via. And with the way the book was written in three parts I had a nervous anticipation of the why of that until I was so busy living the story, I forgot to worry about it.


By the time part two kicked in I was even more invested in the story. Because having Reid's POV was the cherry on top. That man knew what he wanted, and he wasn't afraid to work for it. Add in the fact he could be all commanding and possessive, and his wow factor just kept going up.


The growth of Via was awesome. Some of her decisions along the way were a little annoying but I kind of understood her logic. The fact that she was so open and honest with Reid made her choices even easier to justify. Their relationship progressed so beautifully, and I loved watching her connect with her people and improve her relationship with her sister.


I'm so beyond excited to get Izzy's book next. I think that's going to be hot. And considering how heated Reid got me I'm hoping his dad has some surprises up his sleeve for us. Oh, and please can we get a book for Reid’s sister and the book club babes? Please!?!




Stay Present by Kaylee Ryan is now live!





Two years of silence and no goodbye—she slipped away and through my fingers, leaving me with nothing but questions... and a heavy heart from missing her.

I know what we had was real, that our love was once in a lifetime.

Now she's back from her Parisian fashion internship, and I'm ready for answers, desperate to understand why she couldn't just stay.


When I walked away, it was to protect him. Yet, all he knows, all he cares about, is that I left. Coming home is a bittersweet journey, each step heavier than the last.

While I'm no longer half a world away, the obstacles in front of us make it feel like we've never been farther apart.

I want to give him the answers he so desperately craves, and this time, I'll get to say goodbye. However, what I didn't plan on was Ryder's fight. He's not going to let me go so easily this time.

Oh my god. I kind of hate Karla so hard right now. I spent about a quarter of this book either crying or trying not to cry. I don't know if we got a lot of Tim's story in Greer's book and I've just forgotten the emotions or if it's because time has passed or just that Cameron was closer to the situation but Jesus, it gutted me.


I kind of read the blurb and in my head, I was getting a cute little rom com with a fish out of water twist. But literally nothing from Ivy was what I expected. Her emotions were so visceral, and I felt them with her. Everything about the Wilder family is so perfect and beautiful despite the fact that they are all flawed, normal human beings going through this tragic event. And coming from a background where that's foreign, I completely understood her culture shock.


Not a single thing in this book played out like I anticipated. And I spent so much time in my feels while reading it. But it was beautiful and touching and real, and I couldn't put it down. I have so many hopes for the future siblings, and I love seeing the characters I've met through earlier books. But for today I'm going to angry wash my dishes and curse Karla's name. 


I found this book through a teaser on Facebook. I saw it, thought it sounded good and added it to my TBR and then finished reading the two books I had to read. Then I went back to Goodreads to find it and for some reason it wasn't on my TBR and all I could remember was the line from the teaser. I spent an hour trawling through Facebook until I found it because that's how my brain works. 


So, I found a new to me author through a random Facebook post and now I'm obsessed. Because this book was exactly what I wanted when I went looking for it. Ash was very self-aware, which I really love in new adult heroines. But even more than that she was able to accept that the actions of the people around her weren't her responsibility.


Colt though was book boyfriend goals. From the moment he lays eyes on Ash he goes after her. And even though he wasn't in a position to pursue her he still put his cards on the table and set about doing everything he could to make things better for her. He never left any doubt about what he was thinking and how he was feeling. Everything about him was just awesome.


I'm so glad that I fixated on this book because I'm hoping that we are getting books for all the great secondary characters we met. And I can't wait to get my hands on the next one because from what I've already seen between them the sparks are going to be flying.



This author is fairly new to me, in fact I think I have only read one other book and I loved it. So, when I was having a minor book slump and saw this on KU I figured I'd jump in. And I am kind of struggling on how to review and rate it. Because I don't know if my issues were my attitude and attention or the actual story and characters.


Firstly, the premise was great and right up my alley. I love the whole damaged, loner going all out to win over the single mum. Especially when he has to work and grovel a little to make up for his initial gruffness or stupid mistakes. I also love a Mumma bear who's super protective of her baby. And I got bits and pieces of that but not enough to really win me over.


One thing I know was a me problem was that the leading lady was named Keegan and I know a man Keegan so every time I read Keegan, I was thinking masculine not feminine. Normally the name thing doesn't distract me as much as it did here. And I had moments where I liked Keegan, but she never really was as protective as her self-proclamations claimed. 


Ford would have been a great hero but his reasoning for being a loner was just a little weak. I think most of the planet has daddy issues and there didn't seem to be anything special about his except for his reaction to it. The return of his brother and the relationship between them felt like it was kind of under done. 


Overall, I just couldn't get invested enough in either character and I kept getting dragged out of the story. There were a lot of points I enjoyed and it's highly possible that if I read this at a better time, I probably would have overlooked all of the above.
