“Witty dialogue, fun dates, and a deliciously nerdy hero all match perfectly with a heroine who doesn’t really know she needs all that until it’s right there in front of her. Lauren Blakely has another winner with this one!”

~ 5 The Best Ad Ever Stars ~

Stud Finder is an enjoyable novella written in the world of Lauren Blakely’s Big Rock and Full Package Rom Coms.

It is completely standalone and no other book needs to be read before diving into this gem!! You do see other characters mentioned in this story but Lauren fills in the blanks perfectly so you don’t get lost or confused.

To me this is Lauren at her best. We get a funny and entertaining storyline and characters that you will fall in love with. This is a sweet love story that you could say borders on a friends to lovers story, because Evie and Dylan are acquaintances and hang out together with other friends of theirs. This book doesn’t have any excess drama….it’s a fairly easy read that if you have a few hours to pass, you’ll want to pick this up. It’s a quick read but leaves you fully satisfied in the end. I didn’t feel like anything was missing.

In this story we follow Dylan and Evie. Dylan is a multimillionaire who is looking for love. He has the business he has worked hard for but now he needs the woman who is willing to settle down, but won’t only like him for his money. So he takes the bold step in putting an ad online in hopes of finding his forever girl. In comes Evie….she is a matchmaker and when her friend Olivia, who is also a client and sister to Dylan, tells her about it, she is appalled. Olivia asks her friend to help her brother Finding Dylan’s quest a challenge, Evie agrees to take Dylan on as a client. What happens from here is a fun, and sexy journey between two people who just needed a little nudge in the right direction.

This is definitely a book to read if you are a fan of Lauren’s. You don’t want to miss this GEM!!! If you have never read Lauren’s books before, what are you waiting for?? Stud Finder is the perfect place to start….Get Reading!!!!

~ 4.5 Little Thief Stars ~

Again we are immersed into a story filled with angst, drama, all encompassing emotions and of course romance. But then again that is the type of book I come to expect when I pick up an AL Jackson novel.

Show Me the Way is the first in a brand new series by this author. It is a standalone novel told from Dual POV. I know that my heart is in for a wild ride when I start reading Ms. Jackson’s books and this was no different. My heart and emotions were all over the place while reading this story. I was immediately immersed into the lives of these characters. The story will grab your attention right from the start and it doesn’t let go until the very last page. I thought the pace was good, maybe a little slow in some spots, but nothing to damper my enjoyment of the story. And the flow was perfect. She moved from the past to present effortlessly. These are all the more reason why I will always read a AL Jackson novel.

If you have never read a book by this author, then I would say start with this book!!! I think this is one of my favorites by her. This is the perfect book to start you enjoyable journey that is Al Jackson’s writing. And I say that because every book she writes is like going on a journey with the characters in the story.

In this book we meet Rex and Rynna. Rynna grew up in this small town but ran away 11 years ago because of something horrible that happened to her. Never turning back!! That is until her grandma passes and leaves her her diner. Now it’s 11 years later and Rynna has decided to come home and take back the life she was always meant to have. She moves into her grandma’s house which happens to be across from Rex. Now Rex….he is a character. I didn’t like him much in the beginning, but as his story unfolded I couldn’t help falling in love with him. He was one broken soul, but was an amazing Dad. His daughter, Frankie, is adorable and definitely stole the show in this book!!! I love kids in books. Rex is one man who has walls built all around his heart and it surely takes a strong woman to break them down. Find out if Rynna is that woman….read this book!!!

I really liked the secondary characters that we met in this story. I look forward to reading stories about them in the future.

If you are a fan of AL Jackson’s books, you don’t want to miss this one. It’s an emotional love story about taking risks and learning to move on. A MUST READ!!!!

The Ghostwriter

By Alessandra Torre

Genre: Psychological Suspense / General Fiction

Standalone, 316 pages

 

SYNOPSIS:

I have three months to write the last book of my life. Three months to confess the details of that day, and how it changed everything for me.

My name is Helena Ross. I’ve written fifteen romance novels, ten of which have become international bestsellers. But this one isn’t a romance.  This novel holds only the truth, which I have run away from for four years. The truth, which I have hidden from the police, from my loved ones, from the world.

This final book?

It’s my confession.

The Choices I’ve Made by J.L. Berg

Release Date: October 1st
Genre: Contemporary Romance

 

 

Death is easy.

Surviving it? That’s the hard part.

Dr. Jake Jameson knows this all too well. Losing his mother at the age of eighteen, he walks away from his small hometown and the painful memories it holds, vowing to never return again.

Twelve years later, he finds himself driving back down the coast of North Carolina. When his father leaves him a small medical practice, he has no choice but to heed the call until he can find someone else to take it off his hands.

But coming back home means facing everything he left behind, including the one woman who might make it impossible to leave again.

Molly McIntyre has spent her entire life in one town. Taking over her parents’ small inn, she’s settled into a quiet, happy life. But all of that comes to an abrupt halt when Jake shows up at her door in need of a place to stay.

Molly loathes everything about this man, but she can’t find it in her heart to refuse his request.

After over a decade, these former lovers quickly discover what once burned brightly between them has only grown in their time apart. Soon they must decide if the choices they’ve made have led them back to each other for a second chance or one final goodbye.

About the Author:

I’m a California native, who lives in the South – Virginia to be exact. I still prefer sushi to fried chicken, avocados to okra, and I absolutely loathe humidity. I do love watching the seasons change though. My husband and I have been here for over a decade, and I still get giddy like a school girl every time it snows. It’s magical!

I’m married to my high school sweetheart, and we’ve been blessed with two beautiful daughters and two rescue pups I like to call my “coworkers”. I’m obsessed with chocolate, minions, anything Harry Potter and I love to watch re-runs of Friends and Gilmore Girls!

Title: Rewrite
Author: Stephanie Rose
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Cover Design: Najla Qamber Designs

Models: Josh & Shauna Meyers
Release Date: October 19, 2017

 





Blurb 

Once upon a time, a girl loved a boy and he loved her back. They lived happily ever after.
 
But our story was never that simple.
 
I loved Josh with all I had, right until the day he left. Now, all these years later,
he was back—and wanting me the way I’d always longed for him. Except now, I
belonged to someone else. Someone who never left me the way Josh had. I figured that was the end of our story. I couldn’t alter the past.
 
I didn’t want to rewrite my future.
 
Brianna was always more than my best friend. She was the shining light in my black hole of an existence, and I loved her with every cell and bone in my body. I wasn’t good enough for her, though—more the villain than the hero in our fairy tale. When I had to leave, I vowed to come back a better man—for her. But when I
finally did return, she wasn’t waiting for me anymore. She had someone new, her
very own Prince Charming. Did that mean our story was over? I couldn’t change
our past.
 
It was time to rewrite our ending.

 

 

Excerpt
Brianna hadn’t uttered a single word since we stepped into the truck. Tension radiated off her entire body as she faced as far away from me as possible. I knew she was avoiding me. Our near kiss was too much for her to handle right now. I should’ve backed off and let her have her space, and I did for a few days. All we were doing was delaying the inevitable—whether she chose to admit it or not.
 
“I’m sorry we had to leave so soon. I would have liked to meet more of your friends.” I glanced her way, and Brianna nodded in response, still not looking at me.
 
“I saw Christal corner you at the bar.” Her voice was aloof but the ticking in her jaw said otherwise as she drew back into the seat.
 
Sick, my ass. I noticed her glaring at me and Christal tonight. She stared daggers into Christal’s back every time she touched me. She could act as aloof as she wanted. I knew she fucking hated it. My cupcake was in a losing battle with herself. She was going to make herself really get sick if she didn’t surrender soon.
 
“Yeah,” I chuckled. “Chatty little thing.”
 
Brianna nodded but wouldn’t look my way.
 
“She is. I’m surprised she didn’t slip you her number,” she scoffed.
 
“Oh, she did. In fact, she opened with that.” I fought a smile, picturing the wheels turning in her adorable little head.
 
Brianna’s head whipped to mine. “She did?”
 
“What’s wrong?” I asked with as much innocence as I could get away with. “You don’t like her?”
 
“No,” she offered a bit too abruptly. “I mean, she’s fine, I guess. You can talk to whomever you want.”
 
“So, if I take her out . . . you’d be okay with that?” I let Christal down easy and right away, but Brianna didn’t need to know that. The prick in me wanted to see how this played out.
 
“Sure.” She shrugged as she turned away from me again. “Do what you want.” Her jaw clenched so hard, I thought she was going to chip a tooth as she focused on the Hudson River whizzing passed the car window.
 
Since we were kids, she had the worst poker face. I always knew the second she was pissed off, and judging by how her chest heaved, she was about ready to blow.
 
Traffic always bottlenecked around the same exit. We inched until we came to a full stop. I slid my arm around her and leaned in. She stiffened, but unless she jumped out of the car onto the side of the highway, she had nowhere to go.
 
I nuzzled her cheek. Fuck it, I was going for broke.
 
“And if I . . . take her home. You’d be . . .”
 
“Fine,” she breathed out, her voice a mix of fury and lust. “Like I just said, do what you want.”
 
I laughed, victorious. “Cupcake,” I whispered as my lips grazed her cheek, “you are so full of shit.”

Release Date: October 16, 2017
Blurb
Weeks became months, and months became years. Each day nudged Kason deeper into his addiction. Each memory of the girl destroyed fed the craving for what he could never have again. 

Leaving a life-altering first love behind, Adaline tried moving forward to find love and trust and happiness. Pain eventually faded, wounds slowly healed, yet scars were forever left behind. 
But some scars feel like kisses. When the shattered pieces of their hearts are forced to meet again, the two of them must decide how much pain their love is worth enduring. This is what happens when one person loves beyond the craving and the other craves beyond the loving.

Coming October 26th

Numbers.
They haunt me.
I can’t look into a person’s eyes without seeing the six-digit date of their death.
I’m helpless to change it, no matter how hard I try.
I’ve trained myself to look down. Away. Anywhere but at their eyes.
My camera is my escape. My salvation. Through its lens, I see only beauty and life—not death and despair.
Disconnected from all those around me, I’m content being alone, simply existing.
Until I meet him.
Tavian.
The man beyond the numbers.
How can I stay away, when everything about him draws me in?
But how can I fall in love, knowing exactly when it will expire?

Numbers.
They complete me.
Nothing makes sense without them, the building blocks of logic.
A math teacher by day, a statistics doctorate student at night, my obsession to solve problems is constantly fed.
I’m exactly where I want to be in life, no unknown variables or unsolved formulas.
Until I meet her.
Lyra.
The woman beyond the numbers.
How can I stay away, when everything about her draws me in?
But how can I fall in love, when she won’t promise me eternity?

Hot Stuff - about book

HOT STUFF_Amazon Get ready to fall in love with this new standalone sports romance from New York Times bestselling author Kim Karr.

He’s the newly drafted quarterback.

Hot. Arrogant. Too sexy for words.

Ready to score.

I’m an athletic intern, and the coach’s daughter.

Driven. Determined. Prepared to conquer the world.

Completely off-limits.

The NFL is full of rules. Rules I’ve never broken. Never challenged. Never even scratched—until the day Lucas Carrington crashes into my life with his hard body and I-don’t-give-a-f*ck attitude.

After I almost injure my father’s star player, I volunteer to make sure he’s in top shape. At first, it’s hell. I don’t like his attitude, his cockiness, his easy smile. Don’t like the way he oozes sex. Or how his penetrating eyes follow me everywhere.

That doesn’t stop me from wanting him.

He’s meant to be a distraction—something to occupy my mind for these precious few remaining hot summer nights before I’m forced to leave football behind forever.

I know what we’re doing will lead nowhere good. I know we’re crossing the line. And I know my father will never understand.

None of that matters.

But maybe it should.

Rules aren’t meant to be broken.

Or are they?​

Today, Kim’s oldest child is seventeen and no longer goes with her on these, now rare and infrequent, outings. She finds that she doesn’t need to go on them anymore because she has the greatest device ever invented–a Kindle.

Dane James worked my stepfather’s fields. He was the boy next door.

Strong.

Hardworking.

Forbidden.

From the moment we met, we were star-crossed lovers—always wanting, never having. We loved each other for most of our lives, but right from the beginning destiny had other plans. She knew we would fall in love. She knew we would fall apart. Over and over again, like the curse of a recurring nightmare. Or the hope of a familiar dream.  

Our past was tumultuous. Our future was bleak. But the one thing we always had was the beautiful now.

Until that was taken from us, too.

That there is always a way even when we think all hope is lost. That even when we do what we think is best and hurt the ones we love that their is forgiveness to be found and second chances are a blessing not to be taken lightly. And when faced with the harsh realities of life, love can still prevail over all.”  —  Jennifer

 

 

✩ “I started reading – and I kept on reading. I couldn’t stop. It was all so heartbreakingly sad and beautiful and sweet and frustrating and I just could not stop.”  —  Bianca

~ 5 The One Who Stayed Stars ~

As usual with a M. Leighton book…I am left sitting here trying to think of a way I can write a review that will do this book justice. So I apologize now if this review is short and vague.

The Beautiful Now is an emotional story filled with heartache and angst, but underneath it all there is also a wonderful love story. A story of first loves and never-ending love. This book swept me up and didn’t let go until the very end. I think the only thing I missed in this story was getting Dane’s POV. The story is told solely from Brinkley’s POV. But it didn’t take away from my sheer enjoyment of this book.

“ Where there is hate, there is misery.

Where there is forgiveness, there is healing.”

That saying totally sums up this story in a nutshell. No saying has ever been perfect for a book, like this one is. I can’t explain why because it will give the whole story away, but just know that you will understand it all by the end of the story.

The Beautiful Now is M. Leighton’s latest standalone novel and as with all her books I thoroughly enjoyed every single word in this story. Her writing is always effortless and the pace she took Brinkley and Dane on was perfect. Now I will say this is a journey. This isn’t a sprint, more like a marathon. Just know that at the end you will have such a full feeling and your heart will be put back together.

This story does touch on a sensitive subject, but Ms. Leighton doesn’t take it too far, to where it is uncomfortable to read. She delves into it with just enough finesse that you can’t help but get sucked into Dane and Brinkley’s lives. I felt every emotion they felt….all the highs and the lows. While they were falling in love with each other, I as the reader was falling in love with them.

Now usually in Ms. Leighton’s books I fall hard for the Heroes, but in this book, I truly fell for both Dane and Brinkley. They both stole a piece of my heart and I know they will live in my head for a long time to come. They are such amazing characters…I truly don’t know how Michelle does it….keeps giving us these amazing characters and their emotionally charged stories.

I don’t really know what else I can say in this review, except, READ THIS BOOK!!! It is one you don’t want to miss.

“Witty dialogue, fun dates, and a deliciously nerdy hero all match perfectly with a heroine who doesn’t really know she needs all that until it’s right there in front of her. Lauren Blakely has another winner with this one!”

~Crystal, Bookseller

 

 

Excerpt :

What am I doing?

Dylan is my client’s brother.

Dylan is now my client.

I’m not interested in a match for myself. I’m not looking for love. I’m focused on work, and Dylan is my work.

The trouble is, my work turns me on more than I expected, and that’s for one elemental reason—I like him.

I like him so very much.

That’s why I jerk this conversation back to the purpose of these get-togethers—prepping him for his princess charming, whoever she may be.

I brush one palm against the other. “The big question is—are you ready for me to set you up on your first date? Or do you think the fall in yoga has set you back?” I wink.

“You think falling in yoga means I’m not ready to date?”

I laugh. Nervously. “Well, not entirely. But it did remind me what we talked about before we had tea. That we all have a bit of dork in us. So, I didn’t know if you wanted to walk through all the potential topics, moments, pitfalls, and so on.”

“Like a pre-date prep? Or maybe even a practice session?”

“Sure, we can practice now if you’d like,” I offer.

He doesn’t answer right away. When he does, he takes his time, like he’s making an offer. “Or maybe we can practice in a true date simulation.”

Tingles race over my shoulders. “Like a practice date?”

His eyes twinkle like stars. “I need a practice date badly. Can I take you on one? It would be so helpful to review everything. Make sure I’m ready.”

When he puts it like that… “Yes, of course.”

I want him to put his best foot forward. I didn’t say yes because I want to date him. I wouldn’t do that, even though when he walks away, all I can think is how on earth did I wind up with a pitter-pattering heart for a man I’m handing off to another woman?
