On the Rocks
by Kandi Steiner
Release Date: June 13, 2019

Noah Becker is nothing but trouble.
That’s what Mama told me when I was a kid, kicking his pew in church and giggling at the games we’d play. It’s what the town said when his father died and the Becker brothers went wild.

And it’s on repeat in my mind the day I walk into the whiskey distillery where he works to buy a wedding gift for my fiancĂ©.

He’s trouble.
Dirty, sweaty, rude trouble.

No matter how many times I repeat it, I can’t escape Noah in our small Tennessee town. And the more I run into him, the more he infuriates me. Because he sees what no one else does.

He sees me—the real me.

The me I’m not sure I’m allowed to be.

I’m Ruby Grace Barnett, the mayor’s daughter. Soon to be a politician’s wife, just like Mama and Daddy always wanted.  Soon to fulfill my family’s legacy, just like I always knew I would.

Until the boy everyone warned me about makes me question everything, like whether the wedding I’m planning is one I even want.

Everyone said Noah Becker was nothing but trouble.

If only I had listened.

A stand-alone, contemporary romance.

My review: 5 stars
Small town romances are catnip for me, and On the Rocks was an excellent serving! The whiskey distillery was such a unique backdrop and both Ruby Grace and Noah were well developed and the slow burn of their developing romance and attraction was delicious. I'm looking forward to getting to know the other Becker brothers in what I hope are books of their own. Each brother has their own personality and adds to the story. Betty was a fantastic side character I hope we see more of as well.

Eventually, the principal caught on and the newspaper was quickly halted, though Kandi tried fighting for her “freedom of press.” She took particular interest in writing romance after college, as she has always been a diehard hopeless romantic, and likes to highlight all the challenges of love as well as the triumphs.
When Kandi isn’t writing, you can find her reading books of all kinds, talking with her extremely vocal cat, and spending time with her friends and family. She enjoys live music, traveling, anything heavy in carbs, beach days, movie marathons, craft beer, and sweet wine — not necessarily in that order.

New Release Review: Written With Aly Martinez

WWY - RB banner.jpg

“Aly Martinez is one of the best in the business. You have to read her books.” --Meghan March, New York Times Bestselling Author

Written With You, the emotional and highly anticipated conclusion to The Regret Duet from USA Today bestselling author Aly Martinez, is available now!

WW You FOR WEB.jpg
Written With You (The Regret Duet #2)
by Aly Martinez
Release Date: June 13, 2019


When I was fifteen, a single bullet changed my life. I spent the next decade trying to outrun the devastation of my past, building an empire that would shield me from whatever life could throw at me.

But all the money in the world couldn’t help me when I found a screaming newborn abandoned on my doorstep.

I’d never wanted to be a father. Passing the sludge that ran through my veins down to an innocent child seemed like a tragedy. But there she was—pink cheeks, red hair, and mine.

Somehow, against all logic, that little girl became the best thing that ever happened to me. It was impossible to stay lost in the past when I was the only one who could protect her future.

Which is exactly why, when her mother came back four years later, I was ready for battle.

If only I could stop myself from falling in love with her during the war.

My review: 5 stars!
I'm not usually a cliffhanger fan, but somehow Aly Martinez creates duets (with cliffys of course) that slay me and I'm simply addicted! I don't mind (in fact I LOVE) being on the edge of my seat while reading her stories. There's always a twist or two I don't usually see coming and I love that OMG moment every time. After reading Written With Regret, I was so excited to finish the story with Written With You. The Regret Duet is completely unique and this story was incredible. Go into this one blind and ready for a ride. Written With You and Written With Regret and both brilliant- if you enjoy romantic suspense, the duet is a must read!

Every little girl dreams of the fairytale. The one where the white knight rushes in to save her from the clutches of evil. They fall in love, have babies, and live happily ever after.

By that definition, my life should have been a fairytale too.

When I was eight years old, Caven Hunt saved me from the worst kind of evil to walk the Earth. It didn’t matter that I was a kid. I fell in love with him all the same.

But that was where my fairytale ended.

Years later, a one-night stand during the darkest time imaginable gave us a little girl. It was nothing compared to the pitch black that consumed me when I was forced to leave her with Caven for good.

At the end of every fairytale, the happily-ever-after is the one thing that remains consistent. It wasn’t going to be mine, but there hadn’t been a night that passed where I hadn’t prayed that it would be hers.

I owed Caven my life.
However, I owed that innocent child more.
And that included ripping the heart from my chest and facing her father again.

About Aly
AlyWanderEdited.jpgOriginally from Savannah, Georgia, USA Today bestselling author Aly Martinez now lives in South Carolina with her husband and four young children.
Never one to take herself too seriously, she enjoys cheap wine, mystery leggings, and olives. It should be known, however, that she hates pizza and ice cream, almost as much as writing her bio in the third person.
She passes what little free time she has reading anything and everything she can get her hands on, preferably with a super-sized tumbler of wine by her side.

New Release Review: Satisfaction Guaranteed by Lauren Blakely

 
Satisfaction Guaranteed, the all-new sexy, second chance romance from Lauren Blakely is NOW LIVE on ALL RETAILERS!!!

Grab this swoony, red-HOT, male POV romantic comedy TODAY!

Satisfaction Guaranteed
by Lauren Blakely
Release Date: June 10, 2019

✦Goodreads ➜ http://bit.ly/2Dd3yJE


Blurb:
Look, she started it.

She issued me a challenge I couldn’t back down from. Make her purr like no man has done before.

Fine, she’s my business partner’s daughter. All right, I’m also working in the same damn practice with her. Yes, she happens to be my ex-fling. But that was seven years ago, and it was barely a week-long thing.

Except, Sloane is still the one I can’t stop thinking of -- brilliant, sexy, captivating Sloane. Maybe a week of taking her to new heights will get her out of my head.

So what if we spend a few nights on the town too? So what if I romance her across Manhattan? It’s all in the name of scientific pursuit of more magnificent Os.


Until the rules change…

Performed by Andi Arndt and Jason Clarke, with Jason performing an album of fully produced classic love songs at the end of the story!

My review 5 Purring Stars!
Lauren Blakely is back with her specialty- male POV comedy, and by golly it's fantastic, as expected! Malone, oh Malone..... a super-attractive vet who sings lounge tunes? Swoon! I adored Sloan's character- how perfect that she worked in animal rescue. Filled with flirty dialog and amazing chemistry, there wasn't one single line in Satisfaction Guarantee that did not leave me just that. Second chance romances are always a favorite, and I love getting a glimpse of Blakely's characters from past books- this crew is so fun.  As always, her books read just fine as standalones, but she creates such a fun network of characters, you'll want to indulge in her backlist if you are a new reader. Loved this one from start to finish!

Lauren is donating 10% of the proceeds for SATISFACTION GUARANTEED for the first month to animal rescues! (In honor of the hero being a veterinarian and the heroine working in animal rescue). This donation applies both to ALL preorders and to all sales in the first month across all formats!

The Locker Room
by Meghan Quinn
Release Date: June 20, 2019

HAVE YOU HEARD THE RUMOR AROUND CAMPUS ABOUT THE LOCKER ROOM?

If you haven't, let me enlighten you: Legend has it if you bring a girl into the sacred after-game domain of the baseball locker room, it will end with a walk down the aisle. Basically one rowdy and naked encounter against the lockers with the girl of your dreams will make her your wife.

TRANSLATION: BASEBALL PLAYERS ARE STUPIDLY SUPERSTITIOUS AND BELIEVE THE LOCKER ROOM HAS MAGICAL POWERS.

But not all baseball players are superstitious, me included.

So when the girl I've fallen for brushes me off, I start to question if I need to switch my way of thinking. Maybe it's time I finally hand out a coveted invitation to the locker room.

THE ONLY QUESTION IS, WILL SHE ACCEPT?

Cover Reveal: One Little Lie by Whitney Barbetti



One Little Lie by Whitney Barbetti
Genre: New Adult
Release: June 27, 2019

Blurb:

Adam Oliver hated me. Loathed my very existence. He had every right to, but that didn’t make my life any easier the afternoon I had to rescue him on the side of the road. 

But worse than rescuing a guy who hated me to his core was the lie I told my parents. 

Because I’d just told them that my long-term boyfriend was finally back in town. 

My long-term boyfriend who didn’t actually exist. 

The one named Adam Oliver—the guy I’d crushed on all through high school. 

So the real Adam had no idea that he and I were engaged in a years-long, committed, serious relationship. 

And, somehow, some way, I needed to convince him to play along with my one little lie.

Blog Tour: The Red Zone by Amie Knight




The Red Zone, an all-new sexy, second chance romance from Amie Knight, is available now!

The Red Zone FOR WEB.jpg
The Red Zone
by Amie Knight
Release Date: May 30, 2019

They say the red zone is the hardest place to score.
But for me, those last twenty yards were my sweet spot.
They didn't call me Lukas "Last Minute Lucy" Callihan for nothing.
I was at the top of my game...until life sacked me harder than any linebacker ever could.
Losing my mom was devastating and left me as the sole person responsible for my little sister.

Taking care of Ella and juggling my career was like playing the hardest game of my life.
My only saving grace was Scarlett Knox, Ella's sexy, red-headed, no-nonsense teacher.
She loved Ella. She hated me.
She thought I sucked at this parenting thing, and she wasn’t wrong.
But whenever she was around I got the same earth-shattering, heart-stopping feeling I did when I was only twenty yards from the goal line.
She made me feel like I was back in the red zone, a place I’d never fumbled.
Until now.

My review: 4 stars
Amie Knight is an author I love- she does angsty romance so darn well- so I was excited to see her promise us a sports romance earlier this year. And yes, it's that, but more. I found this to be an emotional read, yet heart-warming too. I loved the relationship Lukas had with his sister and I felt like their interactions were authentic and the emotions they dealt with were genuine. I was so wrapped up in The Red Zone that I read it in one sitting!

About the Author
AmieKnight.jpg
Amie Knight has been a reader for as long as she could remember and a romance lover since she could get her hands on her momma's books. A dedicated wife and mother with a love of music and makeup, she won’t ever be seen leaving the house without her eyebrows and eyelashes done just right. When she isn't reading and writing, you can catch her jamming out in the car with her two kids to '90s R&B, country, and showtunes. Amie draws inspiration from her childhood in Columbia, South Carolina, and can't imagine living anywhere other than the South.
