and Twisted, Drew and Kate can’t wait to tie the knot—if they can survive the pre-
For most of my life, I never imagined I’d get married. But Kate did the impossible: she changed me. I think we can all agree I was pretty frigging awesome before, but now I’m even better.
The road to this day wasn’t all rainbows and boners. There were mistakes and
misunderstandings worthy of a Greek tragedy. But Kate and I made it through with our inexhaustible lust, boundless admiration, and everlasting love for one another intact.
That being said, there were some unexpected incidents in Vegas last weekend that could have been a problem. It was kind of…my final test.
I know what you’re thinking—what the hell did you do this time? Relax. Let’s not judge, or call for my castration, until you’ve heard the whole story.
And hold on tight, because you’re in for a wild ride. Did you expect anything less?
I LOVED IT!!! AMAZING AND SWOONY!

“Because your pain is my pain, Anika. I can’t take it away, but I’ll wear it with you.”
A great ending to an outstanding story. This book begins were Inky left off… yep. Remember that horrible cliffhanger???
Inky and Cole are together, they are in-love and planning a life for themselves. They have grown as a couple and individually but they still have many things to overcome. Once the whole ordeal regarding the Drago family incident, Inky and Cole pick up their lives.
Cole was an amazing partner, friend and lover; it was beautiful seeing how he takes care of Inky and helps her heal completely.
Cole also rekindles the relationship with his father, which was unexpected and a joy to read. Forgiveness and second chances are a rarity these days and J.B. Harnett gives us this amazing value in spades.
So many things I want to say, about his book but they would be redundant and I would be giving away too much of the story. The truth is… these books are the kind you just grab, start reading and forget about reviews or spoilers, every page there is something beautiful to uncover and I loved that I got to read them completely blind!!!
Thank You for a wonderful story; definitely an author to follow thoroughly.
Upcoming Release Announcement: Cover Reveal & Excerpt — HAPPENSTANCE by Jamie McGuire
Check out the stunning new cover of HAPPENSTANCE by Jamie McGuire!
This is the first of a New Adult contemporary romance novella series that will release May 9th. It will also have a big excerpt from BEAUTIFUL OBLIVION at the back of it so be sure to pre-order your copy!!
#1 New York Times Bestseller Jamie McGuire returns to self-publishing with this page-turning YA account of Erin Easter, one of three Erins in the small senior class of rural Blackwell High School who not only share a first name, but also their birthday. Erin Easter, raised by a neglectful single mom, keeps to herself and admires Weston Gates from afar. The other Erins, Erin A. and Erin M. are the darlings of the community: daughters of the two wealthiest families in town, best friends, cheerleaders, and everything Erin Easter isn’t–and they never let her forget it. Erin A. has even claimed Weston since the 8th grade.
Weston is a well-liked star athlete, and the son of two prominent attorneys. He struggles daily with the pressures of living up to his family name and secretly empathizes with Erin Easter’s feeling that she belongs somewhere else; in a different life. Not until he begins sneaking nights out with Erin does he gain the courage to buck expectations and acknowledge his feelings … both for his future, and for her.
But when a shocking tragedy rocks the tiny town, Erin’s life is turned upside down in the best way possible. But when the truth is revealed and everything Erin thinks she wanted falls into her lap, life only becomes more complicated.
“What are you reading?” A deep voice asked from the seat behind me.
I barely acknowledged Weston’s question, holding the cover of my book just high enough for him to see.
He nodded, waiting for me to speak. When I didn’t, he offered a small smile, and began to sit back. “What are you reading?” I asked.
Weston immediately leaned toward me, sharing his cover the way I had.
“Piers Anthony?” Weston cleared his throat to stifle a cough, and then smiled. “I like his stuff.”
I nodded. “I approve.”
“Good,” Weston whispered. “I was worried.” After a short pause, he leaned into my ear again. “Why don’t you ever talk to me in Art class?”
We had Art together in seventh period, the class I looked forward to all day. Weston was in there, but more importantly, people like the Erins and Brady weren’t. We were serious about our work, and it was the one place during the school day that I could be myself.
“I guess I was just busy.”
“Are you going to be busy today?”
“Well, maybe I’ll get lucky and you’ll take a break.” I turned around to hide my grin, but not before glancing back and seeing the familiar look of hatred in Alder’s eyes.
Whore, she mouthed, glaring at me.
Reagan’s Revenge and Ending Emily’s Engagement by Tammy Falkner
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Buy on Amazon
Tammy gifts us with a beautiful gem rich with sweet and loving characters. All the gang is back, and I’m not just talking about the Reeds, I mean all of them, from Gonzo to Faith and Daniel in this action packed short story that gives us a reprieve from our wait to get Matt’s story.
Like with all her books, Tammy gives us the familial love, understanding, support and bonding that makes the Reed brood such good men. We get closure and so much more and I really don’t want to spoil you, but this is a definite Reed Brother’s must read.
He’s an idiot [speaking of Pet], but he’s one of my idiots, so I’ll have to keep him.

Excerpt from Tangled in the Laces by Toni Aleo
“So you’re Grady’s sister, right? Younger sister?”
She nodded as he got lost in depths of her green eyes. “Yes, I may be younger, but I can still make him cry.”
Karson laughed. “Good to know and, if I may add, that’s kind of hot.”
He wanted to make her laugh. When her lips curved in a smile, the laughter followed, and his dick came to life in his pants. It was such a heavenly sound, and he had never wanted to make a girl laugh as much as he wanted to make Lacey.
“You’re a dork.”
“That’s a good thing, right? That turns you on?”
She laughed again as she shook her head. Looking at him through hooded eyes, she said, “Maybe.”
“Good to know. It was great to see that you came to watch me play tonight. I’m pretty good, huh?”
She laughed, rolling her eyes. “Wow, conceited much?”
Karson grinned. “I know what I saw.”
“You’re delusional. I came to watch my brother.”
Still grinning, he said, “But you watched me.”
“You were on the ice; I was watching the game,” she protested, but he shook his head.
“Your eyes never left me.”
“How do you know?” she asked with an amused look.
“Because when I wasn’t trying to score, I was watching you.”
Her cheeks deepened with color as she looked down, playing with the label on the beer. “I’m not sleeping with you; you’re wasting your time throwing all this game at me.”
He was a goner. This girl was it. Any other girl would have fallen for his game, but not Lacey Martin.
Smiling, he said, “Who said anything about sleeping together? Are you thinking about having sex with me?”
Her cheeks colored more before she looked away, laughing louder, making him think that maybe she was. He liked that. A lot. “Oh my God, shut up!”
“I never once brought up sex, and you did.”
“Whatever,” she said, a grin still pulling her lips.
“You are really beautiful when you do that. I like that half smile thing. Really hot.”
Meeting his gaze, her smile fell as she looked away, shaking her head. “You’re wasting your time.”
“Let me be the one to decide that, and aren’t you supposed to thank me? I did just say you are the hottest girl in the world.”
Her cheeks still burned with color as she nodded. “Thank you.”
Seduced by the Game was new for me in several ways. It was the first time I would read very little about characters I knew nothing about, except for Catherine Gayle’s short. But most importantly, it marks the first time I’ve read a book which all proceeds go to this very laudable and worthy cause that is the fight against cancer. I feel very honored to be a part of this.
I didn’t know what to expect other than the fact that the stories revolve around hockey. It made me nervous but excited at the same time.
Every story has hockey as a backdrop but the pivotal point in each is unique. Some are funny and sexy, others sweet and several are touching and heartwarming. So whether you’re following one, several or even none of these wonderful authors, this book has something for everyone. And remember you’re helping with a great cause.
Here’s my special Review for Catherine Gayle’s TAKING A SHOT (Portland Storm 2.5)
A touching, heartfelt and uplifting novella. Catherine Gayle tells a compelling and incredibly sweet story about losing hope and then finding it in the people who love us. It’s a stock up on tissues story!
Catherine is joined by seven other talented authors to support the fight against cancer. But this 8 novella anthology is not just about the fight, it’s also about its hot protagonists and their love for hockey.
For those of us who have followed Catherine Gayle’s Hockey series (Portland Storm) Taking a Shot is a very special treat because it features the very adorable and loveable Jamie Babcock and Katie Weber. If you haven’t read about them, you can still enjoy this very sweet, moving story.
Without neglecting the excitement of the game, she depicts a show of strength, solidarity and family through what is the start of Katie’s battle against leukemia. While she is determined to fight it with all the available medical resources, she’s not fighting it with her heart, that is until Jamie mans up and does something about it.
“He made me want to be brave.”
As for the rest of these stories, I’ll be sure to read all of them, because I’m sure they’re equally emotive. Be sure to visit us during the anthology’s blog tour and launch of this fight against cancer.
