What a captivating novel! I loved Rascal. This novel is a stand-alone, but I wouldn’t be surprised if the other characters in this book get their own stories. This book has a ton of heat, a little bit of drama, and a whole lot of will they or won’t they. All in all, it was a great story.

The plot of this book was interesting. The beginning of the book started in an fascinating way. The meet-cute was perfect and set up a whimsical story to draw readers in. What I loved most is the theme of the book. I feel like the theme of this book is trust.
Each character has their own journey to go through. With the theme of trust in mind, you can see how each character has struggled with trust and how it effects their lives. Alex is such a delightful character. I feel like she is a lot like me in the personality department, so that might make me biased. Emerson is different than most male characters. He has a different way of viewing life than most men I feel. He has a huge story arc. I think his story was even more important than Alex’s story.
These two characters has a unique chemistry. They start off different than most characters so I feel that changed the dynamic in this portion of the story. I liked how they had immediate attraction, but didn’t necessarily give in right away. I love how strong-willed Alex is. She is such a strong character which leads to some very heated scenes between her and Emerson.
The pace of this book is steady. The story started on a high note and ended just as well. There was tons of humor throughout this story. The minor characters really added to the whole story. They were dynamic and helped enhance the story. Not only was I invested in the main characters, I also became invested in the minor characters. The author wrote them in a way that they felt like family to me.
In conclusion, this was a well written story. I was drawn in from the beginning and was devouring the book until the very end. The characters were so lovely and I cannot wait to read more about them. I think this will shape up to be an amazing series.

Release & Review - Back in the Game - Meghan Quinn

By Meghan Quinn
Release Day – April 30


Single dad and hockey star, Calder Weiss has put his love life on the back burner for the past five years, raising his daughter and keeping up with the demands of his profession.
But all that changes the minute Rachel Perry runs into him in the most unlikely of places, right outside the men's bathroom. Vibrant and enchanting, she captures his attention, making it impossible for him to walk away without scoring her number.
Their connection is immediate, their attraction palpable, and their relationship undeniable. But Rachel isn't the only girl in Calder's life which scares him, because Calder's daughter already lost her mother. He doesn't want Shea to lose someone close to her again, making Rachel's task of breaking through Calder's wall that much more difficult.

Our Review:
“a sweet novella, 5 stars”

Back in the Game is a short story that was part of the Team Player Anthology. Calder isn’t only a hockey player but a single dad. When a chance in counter puts the woman of his dreams in front of him will he take it or will he let fear override his desires?
This story is sweet and short. I loved how these two interacted. Calder is also one hot single dad when it comes to the things he will do for his little girl. Dive in and find out for yourself how this story goes.
Writing style-5/5

Born in New York and raised in Southern California, Meghan has grown into a sassy, peanut butter eating, blonde haired swearing, animal hoarding lady. She is known to bust out and dance if “It’s Raining Men” starts beating through the air and heaven forbid you get a margarita in her, protect your legs because they may be humped.
Once she started commuting for an hour and twenty minutes every day to work for three years, she began to have conversations play in her head, real life, deep male voices and dainty lady coos kind of conversations. Perturbed and confused, she decided to either see a therapist about the hot and steamy voices running through her head or start writing them down. She decided to go with the cheaper option and started writing… enter her first novel, Caught Looking.
Now you can find the spicy, most definitely on the border of lunacy, kind of crazy lady residing in Colorado with the love of her life and her five, furry four legged children, hiking a trail or hiding behind shelves at grocery stores, wondering what kind of lube the nervous stranger will bring home to his wife. Oh and she loves a good boob squeeze!

Unwilling to hurt friends and family, Cosette feels the best method of suicide is to become a victim. But when she goes out and gets attacked; instincts take over and she ends up killing her attackers. Guilty, desperate, and scared, Cosette does the unthinkable.

“Suicide is selfish.

It tells the world that you are weak. It tells the world your family and friends have failed. It leaves them with guilt that they could have done more but didn’t. It tells them they are clueless and helpless.

I am weak, but I am not selfish.

My suicide will not leave my family and friends with guilt and shame; it will leave them thankful that they knew me for the short time I was here.” – Cosette Hugo

Her brother died. Her parents divorced. Her high school bully is relentless. Cosette doesn’t have a lot to live for, but it isn’t until she accidentally kills someone that Cosette makes the decision to take her own life.

Desperate to finish this before she gets caught or racks up more victims, Cosette does the unthinkable.

Release Blitz & Review - Clinched - Nikki Ash

Title: Clinched: A Single Dad Romance
Author: Nikki Ash
Genre: Contemporary/Single Dad Romance
Release Date: April 28, 2018

Charlie is everything I want and didn’t realize I need. It’s clear to me now that the woman I met at the club is only one layer of the woman I’m falling for. I’m a fixer by nature but for the first time I wouldn't fix a thing. I want her just the way she is. Broken pieces and all. Who needs the fairy tale when we can have the reality. 

Tristan is everything I want, yet don't deserve. He’s loving, protective, smart, an amazing father, and he’s on to me. That's why I need to speed this story up and tell him everything, so we can flip to the end of the book, and him and his daughter can move on to the next story. One where they get a happily ever after. Because there’s no story I’m a part of that ends in any way but tragedy. 

“Holy Hell! Oh. My. God!
I don't even know where to begin with this book!
To say I loved it is a HUGE understatement.” - blog

“I could not put this book down!! I read every chance I got.” - Shannon

“Oh my gosh what a story I simply fell in love with Tristan and Charlie .....” - Heather Dee

“Healing hearts, 5 stars”

I am a huge fan of Nikki’s since basically the beginning. When I read about Tristan when he was a child I knew I would love him as an adult. And let me tell you that character? He’s perfection. He is loyal to a fault and willing not to ask questions if he knows not to no matter how bad he wants to ask. His love for his daughter basically bleeds out of him. He is basically the definition of what a mother and woman want for a partner and her child. I’m 99% sure that he should be under the definition of book boyfriend in the dictionary.

Charlie is broken and that’s the best way to describe her without too much detail. My heart bled for almost the whole story for her. She found happiness with Tristan and his daughter Lexi, but a part of her was still missing. One can heal, but one doesn’t forget the hurt and her hurt is big.

I loved all the players in Clinched. They each played their parts perfectly and made it ridiculously easy to fall into the story. You meet new characters and get time with old ones. I won’t lie at the end of Clinched my heart was full of happiness for them but it hurt at the same time because we are one step closer to the end of a family we have loved for what feels like forever.

Now rest assured if you are new to Nikki, you don’t have to read the stories that come before Clinched. But I recommend it to get the full family experience.

Series Blitz - Awkward Love Series - Missy Johnson

Title: It's Complicated

Series: Awkward Love #1
Author: Missy Johnson
Genre: Romance

Release Date: December 13, 2017


They call him the Anaconda, and I'm pretty sure it isn’t
because he likes snakes.

Nick Jenson is my neighbor. My hot, oh-so-sexy,
very-well-equipped neighbor that I’d spend hours watching from the safety of my
bedroom window.

I saw lots of things I probably shouldn’t have. Sometimes
I’d touch myself, imagining it were his hands roaming over my body instead of
my own. I had just one mission—to find out if the rumors were true.

Then one day, he caught me watching him.

I was mortified. I was prepared to quit college, move to
another country, and live the rest of my life saying, “Nick who?” But,
apparently, life had other ideas.

Because Nick? Well, he isn’t just my neighbor … He’s also my
father’s best friend. If I thought things were difficult before, they were
about to get a whole lot more complicated.

Oh, and those rumors? Holy fuck, are they true …

Title: I Can Explain

Series: Awkward Love #2
Author: Missy Johnson
Genre: Romance

Release Date: February 15, 2018


Standing on the balcony, outside my boss’s apartment,
wearing only my underwear?

Not how I expected to start my Saturday morning.

I guess I should’ve thought harder about going home with my sexy new gym instructor,
especially since I had no idea the guy was married. When he pushed me out onto
the balcony, five seconds before his wife walked through the door, I jumped one
apartment over because I thought it would be less embarrassing for a stranger
to find me than his wife.

That was a smart move.

So here I am, wearing next to nothing and freezing my ass off, standing outside
the living room window of my young, sexy, and very intimidating boss, Chase

I have two choices: I sit here and try to think of another way out of this and
risk dying of hypothermia. Or I can suck it up and knock on that window. After
a long, internal argument with myself, I choose

option two.

Here goes nothing…

Title: Too Much Information

Series: Awkward Love #3
Author: Missy Johnson
Genre: Romance

Release Date: April 16, 2018


We've all been there.

One minute, you're sprawled out on your bed, minding our own business and the
next you're lying in the back seat of your best friend's car as she races you
to the ER.

And not the closest one either.

No. You're headed to the one fifty miles farther out, because the one five
minutes away is where you start your residency next week.

So there you are, lying in cubical nine, hoping like hell that the doctor about
to examine you isn't young, sexy or male.

Of course he's all three.

Telling him about the clitmaster7000 I have lodged inside me is by far the
single most embarrassing moment of my life.

Discovering he's my brother's new roommate is even worse.

Title: Comfort Zone

Series: Awkward Love #4
Author: Missy Johnson
Genre: Romance

Release Date: June 15, 2018


There's nothing quite like watching your professor as he
motorboats a stripper.

The expression on his face when he looked up and saw me standing there would've
been funny if I wasn't so mortified. I wanted to turn around and run, but I
couldn't do that to Jake. It was his bachelor party, after all.

So, instead, we stumbled our way through the world's most awkward conversation,
because what do you say after witnessing that?

At least things couldn't get much worse, right?


The real fun began when the guys figured out how we knew each other.

Have you ever heard of the term frottage? Yeah, neither had I. Just like I'd
completely underestimated how awkward it would be getting a lap dance from
another woman while my professor watches, or how turned on I'd be.

My first mistake was going there in the first place.

My second mistake was not leaving the moment I saw him.

My third mistake, and the one I regret most?

Applying for that TA position with him last week…
