Cover Reveal: The Stars Duet by Amie Knight

 

The Stars Duet boxed set, featuring all-new bonus content from Amie Knight, is coming May 13th and we have the stunning cover!

Beneath His Stars
I met Adam Nova under the twinkling lights of a nighttime sky.
He was hiding, but that gorgeous boy didn’t belong in the dark.
Nevertheless it was where he lived; a different world than mine.
I was Livingston Montgomery, Southern debutante.
With the world at my fingertips, I was well on my way to being another spoiled socialite.
But I didn’t want money.
I didn’t want social status.
I wanted him; tattoos, sarcastic smirk, bad boy reputation and all.
It didn’t matter that he was from the wrong side of the tracks.
It didn’t matter that my family forbade me from seeing him.
I just wanted to be Beneath His Stars.

In Her Space
I was reunited with Livingston Montgomery in the broad sunshine of a Carolina morning, right where she belonged; in the light.
It’d been too long since I’d seen her face.
She had changed, but so had I.
I was Adam Nova, reformed bad boy. Now, successful business man.
I had it all, except for the one person I’d always wanted, and now I was back to claim her.
She was living in the shadows, just a shell of the former girl I knew.
But it didn’t matter that she tried to hide from me in the dark.
I’d follow her into the deepest depths of hell.
I just wanted to be In Her Space.

BLURB:

"She went home with someone else that night?"

Hearing the disbelief from my best friend's mouth makes the events of my failed date sting that much more.

I would like to make it known, I have a lot more swagger than what it seems. I don't normally ask a girl out, have her fail to recognize it's a date, and then give me a high five--as if I'm her wingman--and take off with someone else.

No. Normally I'm the one taking the girl home but with Stella, it's been one failed attempt after another and frankly, I'm done trying.

But thanks to my best friend getting married in Hawaii right before the school year starts, I'm stuck on a tropical island, watching Stella parade around in what she claims is a bathing suit.

Unfortunately, that's not the worst of it, just the tip of the iceberg. Because what I think is going to be a relaxing vacation, avoiding the one girl I can't seem to make it work with, has turned into a spectacle of being recruited as Stella's doting fake fiancรฉ so she can save face with an old "friend" from high school.

Now I'm navigating through purgatory while trying not to get turned on by the way she holds my hand or kisses my jaw. It's all fake, that's what I keep telling myself, even though it feels entirely too real.


My review: 4.25 stars
In Earn Your Extra Credit, we spend the majority of the book at a destination wedding with the most hilarious group of friends. Main characters and co-workers Stella and Brock "Romeo" have undeniable chemistry an agree to a fake relationship while on the trip. As with all Meghan Quinn books, hijinks ensue, and oh does she do hijinks well! So many laugh out loud moments! I adored Romeo's infatuation with Stella and how patient he tried to be. The read star of the book for me was the last chapter- we get to see some old friends and are treated to a pretty fantastic and swoony grand gesture.

This is my last chance to ditch my playboy reputation and finally fulfill my potential. So I’ve made three rules for our biggest season yet: no boozing, no women, and no scandals.

Especially that last thing.

So who do I befriend on the very first day back at the rink? An amazing female hockey player. I want Sylvie in a way that’s more than just friendly. I crave her. But I have a championship to win, and so does she.

Then she gets her heart broken by my teammate, and I make the foolish mistake of comforting her in the best way I know how. Our night together sets off a string of sins.

Nobody can know about our affair, especially my overprotective teammate. I can’t let anyone see into my greedy little heart. Not even her.

The things I want from her, and the things we’ve already done? If anyone knew, there’d be bombshells.

My review: 5 stars!

Oh how I love a reformed playboy! Anton, or "Baby Bayer" as the cousin of retired hockey player Eric Bayer was introduced to us in Moonlighter, is quite the package- a fantastic young athlete with an outgoing personality and a reputation for having ALL the fun while playing hockey for the Brooklyn Bruisers. Our heroine is Sylvie, a goalie for the new female hockey team in Brooklyn, the Bombshells.

At the beginning of the book, we learn about Sylvie's long time crush on another Bruiser player, but I enjoyed seeing her friendship grow and change into something more with Anton. I definitely wouldn't describe the situation as a love triangle.

I was so excited to see the Bombshells play and meet the team. These women are strong, supportive athletes and teammates and they showcase such positive relationships and friendships- so refreshing to see a group of women with no cattiness. I am so on board for more books featuring players from both the Bruisers and Bombshells.

I listened to an audio copy, and I enjoyed the performances of narrators Patrick Zeller and Desiree Ketchum very much. Both were new-to-me and I will definitely be watching for more of their work to listen to in the future. As I always do, I increased the speed to 1.3X and found it to be perfectly conversational and easy to understand.

New Release Review: Not Pretending Anymore by Penelope Ward and Vi Keeland

 




Title: Not Pretending Anymore
Authors: Penelope Ward & Vi Keeland
Genre: Standalone Contemporary Romance
Release Date: April 12, 2021


BLURB

Finding a good roommate through a classified ad isn’t as easy as it sounds.
I was starting to lose hope.
Until a knock at my door came and God answered my prayers.
Except…uh…wrong prayer, God.
I’d definitely requested the big guy find me a drop-dead gorgeous man on more than one occasion...just not as my roommate.
Declan Tate talked me into interviewing him anyway.
While he was amusing and charismatic, I wouldn’t have been comfortable living with a man, so I regretfully declined.
Then cupcakes showed up at my door—freshly baked by Declan and just as sinfully delicious as he was.
You could say he was persistent.
I eventually folded. It wasn’t like I had another viable candidate anyway.
Plus, I was interested in someone else. And Declan was into another woman. So it wasn’t like anything would happen romantically.
After he moved in, the two of us became the best of friends. We even started to give each other advice on getting our crushes to notice us.
Eventually, Declan concocted an idea: we should pretend to be a couple to make our love interests jealous.
I was hesitant, but went along with it anyway. To my utter shock, his crazy plan worked.
Now I was dating the supposed man of my dreams, and my best friend had the woman of his.
But there was one problem.
I couldn’t stop thinking about Declan.
Those feelings we were trying to fake?
Yeah…I wasn’t pretending anymore.

My review: 5 stars!

Co-written books by Penelope Ward and Vi Keeland are always marvelous and I find their books all-consuming. Their unique stories always pull me in so fast and I have a hard time putting the book down to complete my daily responsibilities! I loved the fast and deep friendship that developed between Declan and Molly and it made the slow burn romance so much sweeter when that moment finally happened. So many real-life issues are tackled with grace. Declan is swoony and Molly is delightful and together they are perfection. Such a great read!

full blurb


  Anyone can fall for their brother's best friend...Tilly Logan fell for her brother's enemy. 

Football club lawyer Santino Rossi is known in the locker room as the two-month chump. For years he’s been on a mission to find someone he can share his basil plant with and cure him of his former playboy ways. 


Tilly Logan is a fiery, Scottish lass who didn’t bat an eye five years ago when a smoldering Italian pulled her into a nightclub bathroom. He was dark, dangerous, and exactly the good time Tilly was looking for—even if he worked for her over-protective brother’s team. 


But a lot has changed and when Tilly returns to London five years later only to find herself trapped in an elevator with the smoldering Italian, it isn’t a happy reunion. Especially because her brother blames Santino for her high tailing it back to Scotland in the first place. 


Tilly doesn’t want a replay of past mistakes and reconnecting with Santino is playing with fire.


But if they keep their relationship a secret, it could be worth the burn.

5 stars!

First off, let's talk about the cover. I love a well-dressed man in a suit and that scruff...... so hot! It needs to be said that I was afraid author Amy Daws would not be able to redeem Santino. After meeting him in Blindsided, I wasn't sure he was hero material. BUT of course Daws worked her magic and I am just as smitten as our heroine Tilly.  I was so glad to see the main characters from Blindsided featured so prominently in Replay- Mac and Freya are #goals and I just adore them together. Santino and Tilly's relationship had so much intensity and depth and both of them having to overcome demons added so much emotion to the story. There was also a bit of shocking info dropped on us at the end of the book, and I cannot wait to see what Amy Daws has planned for her readers next.

She exhales a shaky breath and lifts her lips towards mine. 

I pause a fraction of an inch from her mouth and whisper, “Tilly?” 

“Yes?” her breath stutters as she waits for contact. 

“Are you about to kiss me?” 

“That was the general thought,” she huffs breathlessly. 

I slide my nose along her cheek. “I like that thought.” 

“Then why are we talking?” 

“Because…” I pull back and frown down at her. “I have some rules.” 

Her face contorts, and the mood is killed. “Rules?” 

“Well, just one rule.” 

“What?” she asks, annoyance dripping in her tone. 

I brace myself for her wrath. “We have to be exclusive.” 

“What?” She laughs, her face twisted in confusion. 

I shake my head. “I told you I’ve changed.” 

She blinks back in confusion. “So, what are you asking for exactly? To have me be your next two-month ride?” She chokes out the phrase. “Look, I don’t need to be another one of your two-monthers. I know you’re Mr. Monogamous now, but how do you know that’s what I want?” 

“What do you want?” 

“I don’t know…” 

“Yes, you do.” 

“No, I don’t.” 

I step back, giving her some space. “Don’t think about it, just say what you want. Get out of your head.” 

“I can’t get out of my head because that’s when mistakes happen.” She crosses her arms over her chest and begins pacing in front of the table. “After everything I’ve shared with you the past week, you think a relationship with me is a good idea?” 

“I think it’s a better idea than kissing you and not knowing when I’ll get to kiss you again.”
