𝗥𝗶𝘃𝗮𝗹 𝗛𝗲𝗮𝗿𝘁𝘀 by Maggie Rawdon is LIVE!!!




Pro football might see me as their favorite underdog, but Madison Westfield would rather see me six feet under. 


My ex-best friend’s little sister has every reason to hate me. 


I took her boyfriend’s spot on this team, her brother might lose his too, and our short-lived engagement years ago is part of the reason our families are locked in a grudge match that has the whole league on edge. 


Ruining me would fix most of her problems, but she's stuck trying to work a PR miracle with my career instead. Making my way through her build-a-better-image checklist is the kind of torture I'll gladly sign up for, especially if I get to help her prove everyone wrong. 


But it means we're spending a lot of time alone together, and when it comes to Madison, I'll take any chance she gives me. 


Even if it means there's hell to pay—on and off the field.

Maggie Rawdon has quickly become a one click author for me. The only issue is I've read everything she has written so far, and I hate having to wait for her to write them so I can read them. First world problems, I know. The other issue is that despite them not all being the same series there's a lot of crossovers in characters so while I'm reading, I have these moments where I have to stop and think about if I've met the character previously. Luckily for me they all are stand-alones so the fact I forget more than I remember doesn't affect the story.


I waited to read Before the Chaos until I could jump straight into this after. And I'm glad I did because I fell hard for both Quentin and Madison. I couldn't wait to see how everything was going to be resolved. I only wish that Quentin hadn't let ten years go by before he tried to fix it all. Like seriously why couldn't you have gone grovelling after the first year?


Because Quentin and Madison were meant to be together. The chemistry between them was electric and I couldn't get enough of the way Quentin loved her so completely. I just literally can't understand why he waited ten freaking years. And the fact that Madison just got on with her life made me so happy. I can't stand it when the women pine and wait while the man is off living their best life. 


The book was awesome. The story was great, and I couldn't put it down, hence me still lying in bed in my PJs, sorry fam. I adore all the previous couples and I can't wait to see who we are getting next, hopefully Bea and Cooper. But for now, I'm going to stare dreamily off into space thinking about the perfection that was Quentin.








𝐒𝐥𝐚𝐲 by New York Times, USA Today, and Wall Street Journal bestselling author Abbi Glines is coming March 27th!!! This is a steamy, southern Mafia Romance set in the Georgia Smoke Series.


Designed by Enchanting Romance Designs




Rumor- There are moments in life when you make a decision. Accept who you are. What you have become. This was one of those times…

The fairytale I thought I’d found had become a nightmare so quickly after I said, “I do.” Which was the reason I ran when I had the chance. Not thinking about the consequences. Just knowing I had to get free before it was my life that was taken.

I never expected to end up finding a haven. A place where people were willing to help me hide. It was as if I had walked into my own perfect daydream.  

King- “Don’t believe every pretty face you meet, sweets. You should know by now that’s a terrible f----g  idea.”

She was my job. I was to make her feel safe and do whatever I had to in order to make sure she didn’t run. Underneath the abused and broken exterior, there was a fighter. It was in her eyes. I lived for the moments when she let me see that spark.

I had been headed straight to Hell years before I met Rumor, but letting her fall in love with me was going to reserve me a room in the darkest pit available. One day soon, she was going to find out I was the monster she was running from and the family she had come to trust was the mafia that had killed her husband.

*Please be advised that this is book one in a duet and is a standalone in the Georgia Smoke Series.

Title: Killing Booth
Series: Welcome to the Circus
Author: Lani Lynn Vale
Genre: Romantic Suspense
Tropes: Enemies to Lovers/Sports Romance
Release Date: February 27, 2024


Every single thing you want is going to require you to be uncomfortable.

Those words had been shared with her by the one man she didn’t think she could take a chance on. She just didn’t know that he was right, or that he was going to be the one making her uncomfortable.

Nash Wilder Christopherson was the world’s golden boy.

For fifteen years, she watched Nash race from the safety of her phone. Every single race, PR event, ESPN interview—she was there for it. He was the one thing that kept her sane while having to live the life her father forced her to.

That was all he’d ever be to her, though. A face on the other side of the screen.

Until he showed up at her apartment complex, carried her sister down hundreds and hundreds of stairs during a fire, and changed her opinion of him.

Nash Christopherson was Mean. With a capital M. And he couldn’t stand her.


He thought he had everything under control. Then he met her.

Nash knew from the moment he saw Zip waiting in her apartment, looking panicked, that she was going to damage him. She was going to pull him in, chew him up, and spit him out.

What he didn’t know was just how much damage he could take.

Nearly a year passed as he tried and failed to stay away.

A full year of her smiles, her playful jabs, her teasing, her eyes on him.

Then he got news that changed his life, and she finally took matters into her own hands, forcing herself into his life and pretty much giving him everything he ever wanted.

Everything was great, until it wasn’t. Life smacked him hard, and when the dust settled, she was gone. The only sign that she was ever there was the cracked and bleeding heart, half beating inside his chest, that yearned to hold her one more time.

Natasha Madison

Release Date: February 26





From Wall Street Journal and USA TODAY bestselling author Natasha Madison comes a brand new sports romance.
A spin-off from the Hollywood Playboy & This Is Crazy.

Growing up in Hollywood, I was surrounded by liars and phonies.
So when I got my law degree, I knew I wanted to work as a district attorney.
Busy days turned to long nights—I was on my way up the ladder.
Then he happened.
Bullied his way into my life as if there was no choice.
Suddenly everything I thought I wanted wasn’t as important.

I had one thing on my mind and that was never going to change: The game.
The only goal I had was beating the records set by my family.
I didn’t have time for anything else.
Until she walked in the room.
The earth shifted, just like the stories said it would.
I said it wouldn’t happen—not to me.
I didn’t have the time, but now she was the only thing on my mind.
I knew it was her.
Now I had to convince her.

Meet Natasha Madison

When her nose isn’t buried in a book, or her fingers flying across a keyboard writing, she’s in the kitchen creating gourmet meals. You can find her, in four inch heels no less, in the car chauffeuring kids, or possibly with her husband scheduling his business trips. It’s a good thing her characters do what she says, because even her Labrador doesn’t listen to her…

Life has been hitting pretty hard this month so, when this popped up on my kindle, I was also excited. I can always count on Natasha Madison to make me smile and fall madly in love with her characters. And for the OG family members to throw in some background shenanigans to make me laugh and reminisce about their stories. Or check out Goodreads to see if I've read the book with whatever family members are currently part of above-mentioned shenanigans.


What I honestly didn't expect was how freaking hot this book got so quickly. It started off with a tease and a six-month separation and I thought ok we are going to get a slow burn with loads of banter and phone conversations. Then next thing I knew I was jumping online to check out some new friends for my drawer and borrowing my husband for a minute.


Ryleigh was so driven and accomplished that I wasn't sure how they could possibly make it work. Then bam Stone comes up with the book boyfriend move of the century and I was all swoony and loving him. But it just wasn't to be, and I swung just as quickly to wanting to kick him in the jewels. 


Luckily for me after Natasha took me through all the feels and we got the annual family holiday as our epilogue location. And I almost put the book down with a smile but then she took the breath right out of me. Stone and Ryleigh ended beautifully but man I am reading the next book armed and loaded with wine, chocolate and tissues.






It's been a while since I have gotten so invested in characters in a novella. I mean I am not great at the whole patience thing so I couldn't read this prequel until I had the actual book in my kindle. But from the first chapter I wanted everything to be sunshine and roses for these guys.


And I deliberately didn't read the blurbs because I wanted to enjoy the prequel without having an idea of how it was going to play out. So I spent half of this book trying to imagine the different ways it could play out and hanging on every word.


And the ending had me beyond grateful that I can jump straight into the book right now because this is awesome.





So, it’s not really a secret that my reading tastes have become a little on the wussy side over the years. Every now and then I look back over the books I’ve read and realise just how drastically my reading tastes and my reading style has changed. But the thing is I still want to read some of those books that I used to devour I just always feel like I need to be in the right head space and to be honest with a houseful of kids running around along with a handful of adult or mostly adult kids my head space can change on a dime. 


Then you have the fact that the books labelled as dark, and bully can vary so drastically and the things that I like in those books are hard to discover when just reading the blurb and warnings and tags. So, I tend to steer away as I would rather read a book I’m pretty much guaranteed to like rather than read a book I hate and can’t review fairly because it’s my own personal preference as to why it didn’t work for me. Then a book like this comes from left field. Like seriously never heard of the author or the book but while looking for a different book spotted a teaser and had all my kinks jump out at me and make me instantly one click it. Plus, it’s a KU title so bonus.


From the first page I was so in. Lily was so sweet and drove herself so hard to be perfect without realising the only one putting that pressure on her was herself. But she was no push over either. She had grown up in such a safe and loving and perfect family and place that she knew her own worth and knew she was safe even when she was picked on by the queen bees. Plus, she had an awesome friend who had her back. But then we meet Cayden and suddenly the story just grabbed hold even tighter.


Cayden was a character that I can kind of relate to and I swear I read half of this book with tears in my eyes. His actions are so understandable when you see the trauma he has lived through and having his point of view and knowing how he felt made me love him so much. Even if I wanted to slap him for his self-sabotage and tell Lily that she deserved more I couldn’t help but want her to stand up and push back and see where his actions came from. And the fact that Lily didn’t let him walk all over her but that she did forgive him and see past his front made her the perfect match.


I literally couldn’t be happier that I picked up this book even if I did it on a whim. And now I’m going to go beg for the next one. Oh, and I need to know more about Nikolai and see if I can see if my big girl panties can handle that now. Toodles.
