Release + Review - Secrets We Keep - L. Wilder




In my world, there are secrets at every turn. 

It’s just the way it was in the MC.

Club business was club business. Period.

Marlowe Davenport, the club’s new bartender, had secrets of her own.

The girl was beautiful with captivating, blue eyes that could hypnotize any man. 

She’d come to Nashville to escape her past, and I was determined to claim her future.

Unfortunately, the timing couldn’t have been worse. 

A war was on the horizon, and as the dark clouds drew closer, I would discover Marlowe had a part to play in it—a part she didn’t even know she had. 

Everything she cared about was on the line—including me.

That’s the thing about secrets. They have a way of revealing themselves when you least expect it, and when they do, they don’t give a damn about the casualties they leave in their wake.


 Johnaka's Review 
“Breaking away, 5 stars”

Marlowe left her toxic family behind and started over. It wasn’t easy, but even with her not having much, she’s happier than she ever was. When she met Rafe, she couldn’t help but be attracted to him. But a man isn’t on her list of priorities. When her boss sells the business though, Rafe swoops in with a job offer, and maybe a little more. Will she put herself out there and let him in? Or will she keep in at arm’s length?

Rafe has wanted Marlowe since the day he met her, but his brother told him she bats for the other team. That just can’t be with the way she looks at him. When one night she confesses she is in fact into guys, he makes his move. They might be moving fast but with a war on the horizon who knows how long they have. Will they get a happily ever after they both deserve, or are they doomed from the start?

I enjoyed these two. I liked how Rafe was playful when he could be, but also serious. Marlowe rolled with the punches and didn’t let much phase her. But her insecurities were still there. I think if you take a chance on Secrets We Keep, you will enjoy it.

Release + Review - Repeat Offender - Lani Lynn Vale

Lynnwood Thatcher Windsor has lived a lot of lies. Seen a lot of good men go down.

But he will not stand by and watch as the world he’s built from the ground up burns to ashes before his eyes. Even if he has to build an army to combat the problem he sees brewing around him.

One step at a time, he carefully lays out his plan, building layer after careful layer until everything is where he wants it to be.

Every part is impeccably played, his pawns are in the perfect place, and then she barrels into his life, totally scattering every single piece he’s set in motion.

The bad thing is, she doesn’t even realize how badly she’s messed up until she’s roused the beast. 


The day that Six Ines Broussard met Lynnwood Thatcher Windsor was the worst day of her life.

 First, she has a public breakup with a man she’s not even dating. Second, she has to deal with a black-tie event that she’d rather gouge her eyes out than to go to. Third, she then has to sit at a table for hours on end with the one man she despises.

 Just wanting a break, she thinks she’ll lose herself for a few hours and do what she loves to do best—spend time by herself and go for a walk in the middle of nowhere, spot some birds, and get a little sun. Only, her day doesn’t go nearly as planned.

She walks right into the middle of hell. And at the center of it? Lynnwood Thatcher. The mayor. The man that she took one glance at on the night of his inauguration and dismissed as boring. A total stick in the mud. 

Only, he’s not so boring shirtless, in the middle of nowhere, doing things that are very illegal.

At first, she’s appalled. Then her interest gets piqued. Stuck-up suit is hot! And he has tattoos. Oh, and let’s not forget one hell of a mouth on him!

Then he goes and kidnaps her, and she realizes that nobody is quite as hot as you thought they were when they’re now holding you hostage.


Johnaka's Review 

“Finding answers, 5 stars”

Lynnwood became mayor because he didn’t like what he saw was happening in his town. If there is one thing you need to know about Lynn, it’s that he doesn’t take shhh. When he meets Six, he’s instantly drawn to her. There is something about the woman who gives zero f’s that makes him want to know her more. But they are too different, he’s older, and he’s got his hands full with trying to figure out what’s happening around him. But you know what they say once you deem something off limits you can’t stay away.

Six was instantly drawn to the man who couldn’t keep his eyes off her. He didn’t bat an eye when she snubbed everything at the fussy gala her father forced her to go to. When she stumbles upon him in the woods doing something a little shady, she can’t help but stay away. The chemistry is off the charts, but is it meant to last? Only one way to find out.

I loved these two. The story made sense, and I think it’s one that all of us long time readers had been waiting for. I got my Vale fix for this month and now to wait until the next.

Release + Review - Guilty Pleasure - Jessica Prince


What do you do when the most intense passion you’ve ever felt is with a person you hate?

Sit back, hold on, and enjoy Clay and Lark’s bumpy ride.

The only thing worse than living in a town where everyone hates you is having to work for the man who broke your heart.

Redemption, Tennessee held nothing but painful memories that Lark Ashton had no desire to rehash. After the only man she’s ever loved crushed her soul and spirit, and all her friends turned their backs on her, she swore to herself she’d never go back. But when her aunt calls, asking a favor she can’t possibly refuse, Lark finds herself public enemy number one . . . again

Clay Morrison has spent seven years trying to convince himself he’s no longer in love with Lark Ashton. But when the woman he thinks betrayed him and his family returns, she brings with her a whole slew of feelings he’s worked hard to ignore. Now he can’t get the bane of his existence out of his head.

She’s in desperate need of a job. He can’t resist the chance to have her at his mercy.

And they’re both about to discover what happens when the most intense passion they’ve ever felt is with a person they hate.

Johnaka's Review

“Second chances and misunderstandings, 5 stars”

First off, can I just say my heart broke for Clay, Lark, and Callum? Clay and Lark were a couple for years until Clay’s brother Callum got into trouble. Rumor had it Lark was the one who ratted her out, so Clay and the town ran her out. Now she’s back to take care of her aunt. Lark just wants to keep her head down and do what needs to be done. But that’s easier said than done, right? Soon enough, sparks fly between these two.

Like most males, Clay has his head shoved where the sun doesn’t shine for a bit. He still sees her as enemy number one. Soon enough though, those feelings pass and he remembers why he fell in love with her. Will these two get their second chance or will it all come crashing down before they can really start?

Do yourself a favor and one-click Guilty Pleasure if you love small town romances.

At Lumpy’s little yip of excitement, I looked down and covered my mouth with a finger. “Shh!” I whispered. “Do you want us to get caught?”

I could have sworn he understood me, because he turned and looked at the kitchen’s doorway, raising his ears slightly like he was listening closely to make sure no one was coming.

“Good boy,” I crooned quietly when he looked back up at me with those big, round chocolaty eyes. “You keep quiet and I’ll give you all the treats.” Just to show him I was a woman of my word, I pulled another piece of thinly sliced chicken from the deli bag I’d found in one of the fridge’s drawers. That was the fifth slice I’d given sweet Lumpy since I spotted Clay’s name written on one side of the bag in black permanent marker.

As far as I was concerned, he totally deserved it. “Is that good chicken?” I cooed, smiling wide when Lumpy’s tail began swishing back and forth across the floor like a hyper little bunny. “Yeah. I bet it is. I bet your daddy spent a pretty penny, getting that from the butcher instead of the sandwich meat section like a regular person.” I pulled out another slice and tossed it up so Lumpy could chomp it midair. Next I was going to teach him how to balance a treat on his nose before catching it.

“Serves him right for making me clean out the stupid fridge.”

I’d been with Morrison Construction for three days, and as I suspected, Clay was going out of his way to make my job miserable. There hadn’t been another blowup like the insanely tense scene in Callum’s empty office, however that didn’t mean he was taking it easy on me. Because he absolutely wasn’t.

But I wasn’t going to let him see how much he was getting to me. The more I swallowed down my snide comments or bit my cheek until it bled to keep from calling him every vile curse in the history of the human word, the angrier he seemed to get. For some reason, it felt like he wanted me to fight back. So I wouldn’t give him that luxury. It was childish, pushing his buttons like that, but I was giving myself that little rebellion.

Born and raised around Houston Texas, Jessica spent most of her life complaining about the heat, humidity, and all around pain in the ass weather. It was only as an adult that she quickly realized the cost of living in Houston made up for not being able to breathe when she stepped outside. That’s why God created central air, after all.

Jessica is the mother of a perfect little boy–she refuses to accept that he inherited her attitude and sarcastic nature no matter what her husband says.

In addition to being a wife and mom, she’s also a wino, a coffee addict, and an avid lover of all types of books–romances still being her all time favs. Her husband likes to claim that reading is her obsession but she just says it’s a passion…there’s a difference. Not that she’d expect a boy to understand.

Jessica has been writing since she was a little girl, but thankfully grew out of drawing her own pictures for her stories before ever publishing her first book. Because an artist she is not.

Release + Review - Professor Perfect - Alana Jade

One night in Vegas.
That’s all it took.
One glance stole my breath. One touch lit me on fire.
We live on opposite sides of the country, so one night of fun should be okay, right?
What happens in Vegas stays in Vegas, and now it’s time to move on.
But our chemistry was unforgettable.
And erasing Jackson from my mind is impossible.
But then my Vegas fling suddenly flashes before my eyes.
Not from a memory, but because my new university professor is none other than Jackson West.
Our connection is still as strong as the night we met. The air changes whenever we’re near. So there’s only one of two things I can do…
Ignore my new professor, keep it strictly professional.
Or, find out if we can keep this a secret.
I don’t know which path to take.
But I also don’t know if I can stay away…

Louise's Review

Perfect Professor is a standalone novel that had me hooked with just the title!

Jackson is witnessing his best friend get married in Vegas he continues to run into a gorgeous auburn-haired woman; his divorce is almost final and while he is 39 years old he is starting over. Mia is a mature aged law student on mission to help her BFF fix her relationship. One moment she finds herself having the best 1-night stand of her life with Jackson, next looking up at her new professor wondering how she got herself into this position.

Sometimes going after what you want is the best thing that can happen to you regardless of how it happens.

I personally enjoyed this story; Jade is a new to me author and I enjoyed the teacher/student and age gap romance. I look forward to reading more from Jade in the future.

Lifting my head, I lean back into the couch. Jackson shuffles even closer to me as his hand moves to the other side of my face, deepening our kiss.
Holy hell. I’ve wanted this to happen again so badly. It’s only a relatively short amount of time since our last kiss, but it feels like a lifetime ago now.
Although this time, we are in the real world. Not a vacation in Vegas.
He’s my professor.
I’m his damn student.
I push him away suddenly, my fingers lightly touching my lips. Both of us are breathing heavily.
Jackson hovers over me, unsure of what to make of my sudden change of mind.
He begins to lean back in, but I stop him.
“Didn’t we just agree that we can’t do this. That we never happened.” My hand waves between the two of us.
“Yes, you’re right. It can't.”
"But it did... and I want more."

Release + Review - Fugitive - K.E Osborn


From International Bestselling Author K E Osborn comes the highly anticipated third book in the Houston Defiance MC Series.


The club took me in.

Even though I was a cop.

The moment I handed in my badge, I knew becoming an outlaw would change my life forever. 

As an ex-cop turned biker, my job is to stay loyal. To the club and my brothers. That is my sole purpose. Even though the reason I joined is no longer with us. 

Losing love is hard, but life must go on.

Especially for my kids.

Even if they're just out of reach.

Now I'm a fugitive, an outlaw, a ghost.

But I've run into someone I didn't see coming.

A ray of pure sunshine.

Just when I'd given up on family, now I'm ready to stand and fight.

But perhaps the battle is not where I think it lies.

Maybe my ray of sunshine will warm my life.

Or maybe the darkness surrounding her will freeze me to my very soul.

Johnaka's Review 
“Unexpected love, 5 stars”

Release + Review - Safe - Jessica Frances

One big day. One missing groom. One answer. One life-changing event. One life-threatening disaster. Multiple targets.


I never pictured myself getting married, but then I met Rocky and knew I found my perfect match. So, why are so many people determined to ruin our happiness? Why can’t we just have some peace and quiet? And why has Rocky disappeared on our wedding day?


I never thought I would get married again, but that was because I never knew what true love really was until Conner. I never had a true partner who was always there for me. And now I can’t wait to be married to him. I can’t wait to start the rest of our lives together. But, just like our entire relationship has had hurdles, why should this event run smoothly for us?

Between sabotage, grabby fans, exes, and an unwanted wedding planner, our wedding is looking more impossible by the minute. However, we’re both determined enough to get down that aisle and say I do. We will be married, and not even a crazed killer will stop us.

I hope. 

Hell, are we going to survive this wedding?


Louise's Review 

Safe is book 5 in the ‘In Midsummer’ series, Rocky and Conner have come along way in their relationship and they are finally getting their happily ever after; but it wouldn’t be their story if there wasn’t some drama along the way.

Planning their wedding should be fun, but when the mayor has turned it bigger than ben hur they made their own plans. When they encounter a small group of people that don’t believe their marriage should not take place, they feel the betrayal close to home. When the event that is their wedding takes over Conner knows something is wrong can they find Rocky before its too late?

I personally enjoyed this story, it was the last for Rocky & Conner and I really hope that their future holds no more drama because they have been through it! I am really looking forward to Henry and Bryans story.

“Rocky.” Conner moves onto his knees and faces me, cupping my face. I instantly rest my hands on his hips to prevent him from losing his balance and painfully knocking our heads together. “I love you so much that anyone can come through that door and say they want me, and I won’t even think about the offer for a second. You’re the one I want now, the one I’ll always want. None of my exes even begin to come close to how amazing you are. Henry Prince is someone universally considered to be the full package and even he didn’t compare to you. You’re perfect to me, and I will never want anyone else. You believe that, right?” His tone is pleading, as is his gaze.

I do see what he’s saying. I know how truthful it is. And while I’ve always known Conner would never cheat on me and that he loves me, there is something that clicks into place for me. A final piece that solidifies that we’re so solid that nothing that comes at us during this wedding or after it is going to rock us.

I lean forward and rest our foreheads together, our noses brushing. Then I wrap my arms around him so he’s forced to rest his body over mine. “I believe you, Conner, and I love you so damn much. You’re all I want, too. I cannot wait to call you my husband. Let’s do this tomorrow.”

Conner snorts out a laugh, but when I don’t break into so much as a grin, his smile fades and he pulls back just as much as my arms around him will allow.

“You’re serious? Tomorrow?”

“Yes. I don’t want to wait any longer. And I don’t want the charade that June Fuller is planning to be our day. I want it to be on our own terms. I want you to myself. I don’t want to share you on our wedding day.”

“But … tomorrow is Wednesday!”

“You call Love and, under oath of secrecy, she can come. I’ll call Reed and Bell, and they can come, too. We’ll pull River out of school. Then Bell can take River back to hers, Love can take Ryder back to her parents’ for the night, and we have one night to ourselves.”

“What about work?”

“I’ll get Abby to cover for me. Or, hell, I’ll just call in sick. I’ve got hundreds of those days I’ve never used.”

Conner gasps, but I get the feeling it’s slightly mocking. “You didn’t even call in sick when you were shot!”

“Just marry me tomorrow,” I plead, knowing I can’t bear to wait any longer now that I put it out there.

Release + Review - Knives - K.L Savage


Love is powerful force, but it doesn’t compare to guilt.
And just like most people, my guilt eats me alive.
I went from being an irresponsible kid who didn’t know any better, to an irresponsible man who does.
I make no apologies.
Don’t take my carelessness for strength.
My blood is as thick as the water that killed my brother and once I’m cut, there’s no stopping the river of rage.
My past is dead. I’m not like my MC brothers. Nothing is going to come bite me in the ass.
Or so I thought.
Because life gave me Mary, the little hellraiser who tries to be reckless. 
She’s only looking to escape the nightmare of what happened to her in Atlantic City.
She’s a good girl. She doesn’t belong in this life.
Even if I know she belongs with me.
She paints her lips in red lipstick, but I know it’s an effort to hide the pain.
There’s more than the fact we are too different to be together.
Death calls on the Ruthless Kings.
And like idiots, we answered.
Her past isn’t dead.
And mine has come back to life.

Johnaka's Review 
“Holy, 5 stars”

Savage is the reason I read MC stories. I was never into them until I stumbled upon this series, and now I cannot stop. Knives has intrigued me from the beginning. I knew there was just something about him that was going to be explosive. Savage didn’t disappoint.

Knives wants Mary, but at the same time he won’t make a move. She drives him absolutely crazy. They fight like cats and dogs, the tension high. But it’s each other they turn to. When Mary finally makes Knives snap, it sets off a series of events neither saw coming. Will Knives be able to keep her safe or will he lose her before he gets her.

Bad things don’t happen to good people.
Bad people do.
And it’s made me love and appreciate good people more. Maybe I’m different. Maybe I’m not crying every night or having nightmares. Maybe I’m not losing myself in drinks or drugs, but I have lost something about myself.
I’m just trying to find it.
“You give me a headaches twenty-three out of twenty-four hours a day, but I can’t sit here and lie to you and say you aren’t beautiful,” Knives says, honestly, meeting my eye and keeping his hands to himself.
The flames dance in his cornflower blue eyes and they are so damn bright. I’ve never seen irises like his before. They are unique, just like him.
“And the other hour?” I tease when I sit down on the hay, which scratches my ass and is very uncomfortable.
“I’m sleeping. It’s the only damn peace I get.”
“Shut up,” I giggle, nudging his side with my arm. I lean forward and lay my elbows against my knees, watching the fire as it pops. The rain is slamming against the barn and the door shakes when the wind carries around us.
“It’s not letting up, is it?”
“No, it isn’t. I can’t believe it turned so ugly so fast.”
“The way of the world is bittersweet, ain’t it?” he asks, the stands and when I go to ask him where he is going, my eyes land on his package.
His very big, very long, very in my face, package. He has a tattoo above the waistband of his underwear, right above where I assume his pubic hair is and it says 666.
What’s that mean?
If a woman hops on top, does that mean she gets possessed by the devil?
Why does a part of me want to find out?

K.L. Savage decided they were tired of looking for the kind of books they wanted to read. They had an itch that needed to be scratched, and as every girl knows, nothing scratches better than an alpha.

They write about gritty, alpha males, sometimes their dark sides, and the women they love.
If you have the same itch, their alpha males should fix that.
