Release + Review - Rules - Anna B. Doe

Senior year.
Three girls. Three guys.
Truth and consequence. 
Broken trust and shattered hearts.
Lost innocence and new experiences. 
One more year before running away.
One more year to save her. 
The countdown begins.

When Maximillian Sanders moved to Greyford, he had three goals: mend the broken relationship with his sister, keep her safe, and get into a division one college, playing hockey. There he meets the girl who breaks his heart and turns his world upside down, and it's her best friend who helps pick up the pieces.

Brook Taylor learned the hard way that in order to survive this ugly world, she needed to live by her own rules. Then she meets Max and for the first time, she’s tempted to break them. He’s off limits, and she has a plan that doesn't include a hot hockey player. 

He says he wants her, but she can see the truth in his eyes. She should have just followed her rules and guarded her heart. 

Those three little rules were supposed to save her, until she broke them all.

Jennifer's Review 
Gasp! Rules is the third book in the Greyford High series. It is a standalone, but it does run parallel to book 2 and features characters from book one as well. This book touches on sensitive topics so it may trigger some.

I loved the way this book covers these topics. The plot of the boom was good. I really liked the character development. Having read the whole series I couldn't wait to get my hands o  this one. The heat is on point. Writing style is perfect. I think what I liked most was how the story showed scenes from the other boom from a different point of view.

In conclusion, I loved not only this book, but the entire series. I would read it again in a heartbeat. If you like angsty teen books with serious topics, then pick this one up.

★★★★★ "This book will break you, heal you, make you fall in love with characters, and their story. You will cry with them, and for them. You will love with them, and cheer for their happy ending. I won't spoiler the story, I will just say you HAVE TO, no, YOU NEED TO read this book." - @tinatejt

Release + Review - Crazy for Loving You - Pippa Grant

Is there anything hotter than a growly, overprotective Marine cradling a baby? My melted ovaries don’t think so. 
When you work hard and have the bank account to prove it, you’re entitled to play hard. I’ve seen some crazy things. I’ve caused some crazy scenes. And there’s no shame in my game.
But I’m still knocked off my stilettos when an insane chain of events leads to me inheriting a baby. The craziest part? The baby comes with a by-the-books, no-nonsense retired Marine who's so regimented that I wouldn't be surprised if he irons his boxer shorts. 
Parenting? Bring it on. I don’t need sleep—I once started my day with business meetings in Cairo and ended it three days later at a club in Melbourne. Changing diapers? Please. It can't be any more challenging than changing out of Spanx on the back of a moving motorcycle. Training the little guy to run the family’s real estate empire? He’ll be all our bosses by the time he’s four.
But living with my new co-guardian? The gruff, muscled, tattooed former military man who manages to check all my boxes while trying to sneak under my skin?
He needs to go.
Because the longer he stays, the more layers he’s peeling off my heart.
But love isn’t something that’s ever diluted my gene pool, and I like my life just fine without it. I have awesome friends, this adorable baby and an obscene amount of money. Who needs love? 
Turns out…maybe me.
Crazy for Loving You is a larger-than life ride through accidental parenthood featuring a fun-loving billionaire playgirl, a crusty Marine with a gooey center, a horny dolphin, the world’s most obscene pool, and all the fun you’d expect from a world built by Lucy Score, Claire Kingsley, Kathryn Nolan, and Pippa Grant.

Johnaka's Review 

“Sudden parenthood, 5 stars”

Daisy works hard and plays just as hard. Unfortunately for her the tabloids don’t see the good things she does. They just see a heiress who is always on the move. When her cousin dies she figured it would be business as normal, until her grandmother informs her she is now the guardian to her cousins baby. To make matters more interesting she shares custody with a stranger. Will she be able to step up and be everything the baby needs or will she walk away without trying?

West is newly retired from the military and trying to figure out the next phase in life. What he didn’t expect was to be summoned to Daisy Carter-Kincaid’s home, a woman he’s never met. When the lawyer drops a bomb on him that he now shares custody of a random child with Daisy he thinks someone is pulling a prank on him. But one thing is for sure, West isn’t the type to walk away and if he’s learned anything since meeting these two its that they both need him. The question is will the lines blur or will he be able to not become attached?

I try to read Grant during the day and finish before bed. Because I have woken my husband up a time or two in the middle of the night from shaking the bed with laughter. Well let’s just say I ending up reading Crazy for Loving You in bed and I don’t regret it. Daisy and West were amazingly good people on different levels. I loved how they interacted, the banter, and the genuine love they had for a baby who wasn’t either of theirs. Then you have Daisy’s girlfriends and their men. You have West’s family (He’s the oldest of six and has four sisters) who played in perfectly.

I wish this wasn’t the end of the Bluewater Billionaires series but it went out with a bang.  I loved it and I hope you do too.

Release - A Friendly Wager - Nikky Kaye

When I told my friend Will that I was done with dating, he looked at me like I’d decided to give up oxygen. 

I’m not the first college princess to swear off kissing frogs, and just because we have a biology lab together doesn’t mean that he’s an expert on the birds and the bees, except… he’s given me a challenge—a friendly wager, so to speak. 
A thousand bucks is on the line, and all I have to do is prove that he doesn’t affect me. It’ll be the easiest money I’ll make all semester. 
Only, I didn't count on how hard it would be to resist his panty-dropping smirk, dirty promises, and the way he gets inside my head. Giving up oxygen might be easier.
We’re both playing to win, but at what cost?

Johnaka's Review 

“The quiet one and the loud one, 4 stars”

Stella is loud and boisterous. She’s often the life of the party. Stella always wears a smile but doesn’t really let people in. sure she has those close to her but they don’t know everything. Something about Sawyer makes her want to spill all her secrets. But he’s made it clear he doesn’t want someone like her.

Sawyer is still kind of shy and awkward. He didn’t mean what he said about Stella, she’s just kind of intimidating. She’s looking for her next story and he’s wanting to make tenor. Will these two fall in love while helping the other get what they want?

I really did enjoy Trust in Me. I liked the dynamic between Sawyer and Stella. They balanced each other perfectly. Trust in Me was my first book by Coll and I highly enjoyed it. The only thing I would change is I wanted more from Sawyer’s point of view than what I got. But if that’s all I have to complain about then she clearly did something right.

She might only be in town for a few weeks, but he’s never been one to back down from a challenge. He’s going to right every wrong on her list to make her fall in love with Christmas.
And with him.

Reason 25 - The year I fell for a sexy cowboy. Who lives on the other side of the world. What the hell do I do now?

Scroll up and 1-click today!

Louise's Review 
This is my first ever Christmas book and what a great one to start with! 

Johnny falls hard and fast, his heart is big and he knows that he has found the one when he meets Isabel and he is going to change her mind about Christmas 1 reason at a time. 
Isabel is an Aussie, she isn’t used to the snow and cold and now she has to endure all of that during her most hated time of the year. 

When Isabel’s heart is on the line will reason number 25 be the downfall of her and Johnny? 

I personally loved this story, hot alpha with instant chemistry that will do anything and everything to get the woman he wants. 

This is a holiday book worth reading.

Release + Review - Never Goodbye - Ruth Cardello

In the Barrington family, Ian is the fixer. He lives a double life—one that has provided him with the skills to save his family more than once. Reuniting with the brother they’d all believed was dead has shaken him to the core. He is driven to find the responsible party regardless of the consequences.

Claire Wendell’s best friend recently married into the very powerful, very troubled Barrington family. When she stepped away from her own life to help Annie and Kade settle into theirs, she had no idea it would put her on a possible suspect list.

She’s bold enough to stand up to Ian and intuitive enough to see past his anger, but love may not be enough to protect the family when the truth about the woman who raised Kade is revealed.

How important is the truth?

Is it worth losing everything?

Johnaka's Review 

"Opposites attract, 3 stars”

Ian doesn’t handle change well. He’s a fixer through and through and this situation he cannot fix. His long-lost missing brother has been found and is connecting with his family for the first time. Along with his wife and her best friend. There’s something about Claire who sets off his alarms. Is she innocent or does she have an ulterior motive to be around his family?

Claire traveled to the states to help her two best friends through this interesting time of meeting a family Kade didn’t know he had. She doesn’t mind Ian being distrustful. But sometimes he’s down right rude. Nevertheless, sparks fly. Will these two get a happily ever after or will it be a miss?

I thought Never Goodbye was good sure. But I’m 98% sure that it would have been better if I had read the other books that came before in the Barrington Billionaires series. I can say the writing was classic Cardello though. If you take a chance on Never Goodbye I hope you enjoy it.

Release - Dirty Letters - Vi Keeland & Penelope Ward

A Contemporary Romance Novel
New York Times Bestselling Authors Vi Keeland & Penelope Ward


I’d never forgotten him—a man I’d yet to meet.

Griffin Quinn was my childhood pen pal, the British boy who couldn’t have been more different from me. Over the years, through hundreds of letters, we became best friends, sharing our deepest, darkest secrets and forming a connection I never thought could break.

Until one day it did.

Then, out of the blue, a new letter arrived. A scathing one—one with eight years of pent-up anger. I had no choice but to finally come clean as to why I stopped writing.

Griffin forgave me, and somehow we were able to rekindle our childhood connection. Only now we were adults, and that connection had grown to a spark. Our letters quickly went from fun to flirty to downright dirty, revealing our wildest fantasies. So it only made sense that we would take our relationship to the next level and see each other in person.

Only Griff didn’t want to meet. He asked that I trust him and said it was for the best. But I wanted more—more Griff, in the flesh—so I took a big chance and went looking for him. People have done crazier things for love.

But what I found could change everything.
