Release + Review - The Wicked Aftermath - Melissa Foster


When the person you blame for your grief is the only one who can save you from the pain…

Tank Wicked lost his sister and has since vowed to save everyone else in his path. He lives by the creed of the Dark Knights motorcycle club, sworn to protect and respect his community. He selflessly saves lives as a volunteer firefighter and treats the men and women who work for him at his tattoo shop like family. But life isn’t a balance scale where good deeds negate bad things to come, and one foggy night life guts Tank once again. When a car careens over the side of a bridge and into a river, Tank springs into action, plunging into the water to rescue the passengers. Four people go into the river, but only three come out alive.

Leah Yates is just trying to make it through each day. When the man she blames for her grief becomes the only one who can pull her from the depths of despair, she discovers that even hope comes at a price. Maybe this time she won’t have to face it alone.

THE WICKED AFTERMATH is an emotionally gripping story of love, loss, and hope, with a rich and entrancing happily ever after. Set on the sandy shores of Cape Cod, the Wickeds feature fiercely protective heroes, strong heroines, and unbreakable family bonds. If you think bikers are all the same, you haven’t met the Dark Knights. The Dark Knights are a motorcycle club, not a gang. Their members stick together like family and will stop at nothing to keep their communities safe. Some of the Wickeds’ love stories will be hilariously fun and deeply emotional, others will tear at your heartstrings and include injections of humor, but they will all leave you wishing you could climb between the pages and join them. All Wicked novels may be enjoyed as standalone romances.

Johnaka's Review
“emotional read, 4 stars”

I hated The Wicked Aftermath in the best kind of way. This book broke me. I cried. The Wicked Aftermath is probably the most emotional read I have ever read from Foster. She broke our heroine, Leah, and then put her back together. Tank was the best kind of hero. He was patient and steady.

The only thing I will say is if you're in public, do not read. If you don’t want to cry, don’t read. This is coming from a woman who never cries while she reads.

Release + Review - Conflict of Interest - Dee Lagasse


There is nothing Audrey Young wants more than to finally step out of her father’s shadow.

Known for being one of Boston’s most sought-after – and less than ethical – corporate attorneys, Benedict Young has always wanted the best for his daughter.

Only Benedict and Audrey’s versions of “the best” have never exactly lined up...

Just weeks after passing the bar, Audrey secures an interview at Ortega & Beckham – her father’s rival firm. 

Filled with a mix of nerves and excitement, she heads to a small pub in South Boston the night before... for one drink. 

Just. One. Drink. 

Instead Audrey finds a bartender with a generous pour and Leo - the hot guy at the end of the bar who convinces her to stay for a cheeseburger and much longer than she planned. All the while, Audrey knows she doesn't have time for a relationship. So, she takes their flirty conversation for exactly what it is: harmless fun. 

That is... until the next morning when she walks into her interview and comes face to face with Leo himself. 

Fate isn’t something Audrey believes in, but if she did… this certainly would feel a lot like it.

The only problem? Leo is her new boss. 

Their chemistry may be off the charts, but they both agree their careers come first. 

What Audrey and Leo both seem to forget is that all is fair in love and law.

...and some lines are meant to be crossed. 

Louise's Review

Conflict of Interest is a standalone romance story that has all the feels.

Audrey is finding her own path, she has 1 chance to prove herself and that she isn’t anything like her father. Leo has high standards for himself and he is good at what he does; he was named youngest associate at the firm to be named Senior Partner. Leo and Audrey have chemistry can they get their act together ?

I personally enjoyed this story; Lagasse is a new to me author and I can’t wait to read more.

Release + Review - Living at 40 - L.B Dunbar


Is it an accidental pregnancy, if it’s purposefully planned?

Autumn Kulis wants a baby. It’s that simple and that complicated because one thing stands in her way - she doesn’t have a man in her life. And at almost forty, she isn’t getting any younger. On a two-week trip to her brother’s lakeside cottage, a plan forms. Make a list of three men. Sleep with each of them. Allow nature to take its course. Only, a certain someone gets in her way.

Logan Anders goes with the flow of life. Divorced, single dad, he works hard, and occasionally plays harder. When his college roommate invites him to Lakeside Cottage for two weeks, he hadn’t remembered his best friend’s little sister being so hot. Nor was he a fan of her plan to find a baby daddy. He’s determined to make her list then tear it to shreds leaving him the only man horizontal with her.

When we were forty, we had so much life to live, and a simple proposition could be the start of a second chance at really living.

 Louise's Review

Living at 40 is book 1 in the Lakeside Cottage series; an emotional story about getting older and chasing after what you want.

Wanting a baby is something Autumn has wanted for a while she just has to find the right guy to sleep with and make that happen; everyone has an opinion on who that should be. Logan throws his hat in the ring and hopes to be the last man standing.

I personally enjoyed this story, it had me laughing and also crying my eyes out. I cannot wait to read book 2.

Release + Review - Southern Heat - Natasha Madison


After being left for dead, I was given a fresh start by my knight in shining armor. 
My protector.
I never had a family before they took me in. 
But I don’t know how to stay or trust.
I always had a bag packed and ready just in case I needed to escape again. 
Like they say, old habits die hard.
Being in the shadows is lonely, but lonely is safe. 

I was the quiet one, the one who stood in the back and watched things unfold. The cowboy who only cared about his horses instead of the glory. 
Until I found her fighting for her life. Something inside me shifted, and I couldn’t stop it. 
I couldn’t stop protecting her. 
I fell in love with her with one look because she was my soul mate. 
Even though I knew I couldn't make her stay.

 Johnaka's Review 
“Be still my beating heart! 5 stars”

Okay, I had really no idea what to expect before deep diving into Southern Heat, and well the title is fitting. Madison brought the freaking heat! I loved Quinn. He is the best kind of hero. He’s alpha, but knows when to be soft. He has a protective streak a mile wide, he’s patient and kind. Quinn was quite literally everything that Willow needed.

To say Willow has been hurt, abused, and used would be an understatement. She’s never known what a good person looks like until now. She doesn’t know how to handle Quinn. But most of all, she doesn’t think he deserves a man like him. Will Quinn’s patience run out before it’s too late? Only one way to find out.

Willow works through a lot of physical and mental trauma so if that’s not your jam then don’t pick up Southern Heat.

Plot-5/5 Characters- 5/5 Heat- 5/5 Writing style- 5/5 Overall- 5/5

Louise's Review

Southern Heat is book 6 in the Southern series; a long standing series that has now jumped into the 2nd generation. 

Quinn is just like is Dad, he is a protector but in the different sense; he has amazing morals and proves throughout this story that he is his fathers son with Alpha ways. Willow is broken women who has been beaten down and needs to find her own path; with Quinn and his family by her side she has a chance. 

I personally enjoyed this story, Madison continues to write these stories that pull you in and want more. Bring on Southern Secrets!

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...

Release + Review - The Rival - Kendall Ryan


Dump my cheating ex? Check.

Land an amazing job with Boston’s professional hockey franchise? Check.

Fall stupidly in love with hockey’s favorite bad boy? Ugh.

After wasting years of my life with the wrong person, I told myself all I wanted was a little no-strings fun. Enter Alex Braun—a wealthy, handsome, notorious playboy who’s equal parts charming and dangerous as hell to my wounded heart.

After enduring a very public breakup of his own, the sexy player doesn’t want to be anyone’s forever. Too bad he barreled his way into my heart, instead of just my bed. 

But this professional athlete knows a thing or two about competing, and he won’t let go so easily.

Louise's Review 

The Rival is book 2 in the Looking to Score series, a Hockey romance that gives you a different side of them from on the ice.

Alex has a bad reputation and any female that wants a forever needs to steer clear of him; He has grown tired of his partying ways and come to realisation that he wants a good women by his side who supports his and wants the real Alex, not the famous Hockey player but when he figures all this out is it too late?

Alex and Aspen have amazing of the charts chemistry and a slow burn romance that had me finishing the book in 1 day!

I look forward to reading The Rookie, I just know we are in for another fantastic read.

Release + Review - Fool For You - Kelly Elliott


It was only supposed to be for a few months, so where was the harm in going along with it? That is, until the fake engagement Landon and I came up with after a misunderstanding threw us both into the spotlight, and threatened to destroy the lives we had both worked so hard for.

Somewhere along the way, though, we realized everything had changed. So, we made a vow to one another when we crossed the line from being best friends to lovers, that neither one of us would get hurt.

But that's the thing about promises made, they are often broken, and the fallout can be catastrophic.

So, when the real world comes crashing down into the fake world we'd created, neither of us knew who would break our vow first, and more importantly, which one of us would survive the betrayal.

Johnaka's Review
“Laugh out loud, 5 stars”

Holy guacamole, I don’t think I have ever laughed so hard while reading a Kelly Elliott story before. Landon and Emmerson had me rolling. I love a good friends to lovers romance and Fool for You is great.

Landon has always had a thing for Emmerson but has never made a move because he doesn’t want to ruin a lifelong friendship. He will take what he can get when it comes to her. He just wants her happy. Emmerson has started to see Landon in a different way lately and its… weird? But it’s not. Is it because everyone around her is engaged? Who knows? But when one slip up leads to another and then another next thing she knows is she’s fake engaged to Landon.

When these two decide to date while being fake engaged the tides really turn. Will they end up together for real or will they ruin a several decades long friendship? Read to find out.
