Synopsis:

Chasing Him is a full-length 110k+ words standalone novel that’s filled with angst, sexual tension, and plenty of forbidden temptation! Let Kennedy Fox take you to the South for a hot, captivating adventure that’ll surely leave your Kindles on fire!

John Bishop isn’t your typical single dad.
Reserved, impatient, and utterly clueless.

Running the family’s bed and breakfast has many perks. Working long hours, picking up after the guests, and hearing couples going at it all night long aren’t any of them. Hooking up with girls who come to the ranch for horseback riding lessons? Best perk of them all.

That is until a baby shows up at his doorstep with a note claiming it’s his. Growing up on a ranch was anything but easy, but raising a newborn is proving to be the hardest task he’ll ever tackle. Leaving the bachelor life behind, his only priority is to hire a nanny who can teach him a thing or two about parenting — except he doesn’t anticipate her being gorgeous and quirky with an unhealthy football obsession.

Mila Carmichael has many talents — making balloon animals, creating origami art, and remaining in the friend zone. Often seen as one of the guys, she’s struck out more times than a rookie baseball player.

Seeking a new adventure, she flies to Texas to visit family and is offered a position she can’t refuse. Helping out a new dad should come easy to her, considering her past experience, but what she doesn’t anticipate is him being an attractive Southern temptation.

But that’s only the beginning.

While growing close to his family and falling madly in love with the baby girl who’s stealing their hearts, things are bound to get complicated. Everyone knows not to mix business with pleasure. That means no late movie nights, no stolen glances, and definitely no kissing behind closed doors. Too bad the universe has other plans — one that’ll threaten taking away the main thing that binds them together.

My Review:

Chasing Him (Bishop Brothers)Chasing Him by Kennedy Fox

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

5 Stars…..

John and Mila…..

This series keeps getting better and better. Here we are on book three and it’s my new favorite. I don’t have one single complaint about these Bishops brothers. Well, except for Jackson because his book isn’t out yet and I’m impatient, lol.

Here we have the heartwarming and slightly dramatic story of John Bishop and how one day he finds out he is a father. I won’t go into the details because there is a sad story behind that. I was just so thrilled to watch him with his baby daughter. Talk about an ovary explosion.

This amazing author duo known as Kennedy Fox has never disappointed me. I have loved all their books thus far and because their writing style is one that engages me with every last word, I don’t ever see that happening. Each book in this series (three thus far), has a perfect balance of suspense, angst, humor, witty and lovable secondary characters, and a premise that keeps you entertained. I can’t tell you how badly I am looking forward to the next in this series.

John and Mila were both mature, lovable characters. I will say, however, that because of their circumstances, despite their obvious attraction to each other, the first half of the book is a slow burn. I appreciated that these two acted responsibly first; it made for a believable story. When they did act on their attraction, it was beyond scorching. Their connection was believable, the tension was palpable and I couldn’t help but worry about how things would turn out. Mila and John were perfect for each other so I knew their story would be fantastic.

This is book three in the Bishop Brother series and while it can be read as a standalone, you should truly read them all to have a better experience with this amazing, loyal and loving family. If you are a fan of Kennedy Fox then you might know that this series is a spinoff from their Checkmate series as Courtney from This is Reckless is the only sister to the Bishop brothers. As a personal preference, interconnected books always guaranty that I’ll be back for more. And I can most definitely guaranty that I will be looking for more Kennedy Fox.

This is my honest and unbiased review. Thank you taking the time to read it. 🙂

I didn’t
need anyone to tell me, I knew he was forbidden with a single glance.
He was a
boy I should be afraid of and definitely a boy I should never want. No matter
how much neither of those statements were true.
From the
first time I saw him, Sebastian had a hard stare that pinned me in place.
And, years later, it hasn’t softened.
We lived on
the same street, went to the same school, though he was a year ahead.
Even so close, he was untouchable.
He was bad
news and I was the sad girl who didn’t belong.
One night
changed everything. 
We both had
secrets.  We both saw the pain in each other’s eyes. 
That gaze
that gave me chills, turned to a lust-filled haze that heated every inch of
me. 
But that
didn’t change who he was.  A man who would take everything from me.

Title: Bewitching Sloth
Series: Seven Deadly Series #1
Author: Michelle Gross
Genre: Paranormal Romance
Release Date: July 30, 2018
Reapers are the peacekeepers—the balancers of life and death, good and evil. They’re the police of the Underworld in a way. They keep both worlds balanced just enough so that the King of the Underworld can never escape his prison. 
For the day his reign stretches into the human world, all things good will come to an end. 
This is the story of a dark king who cursed seven siblings with sins, and how far those seven went to protect both worlds from the end of days when an old entity challenged the Dark One’s very reign. 

Isabella Wen has spent the last decade in the human world hiding from the one that turned her touch deadly, made her body a weapon for his own gain.
Sebastian Reaper—bearer of the sin of sloth and the eldest son of the revered Grim Reaper—has spent his entire life fighting to stay awake because of his curse.
When the witch finds the sleepy sloth passed out in the human hospital, they touch and sparks fly. Her touch should have hurt him. Instead, it’s the one thing he’s after.
She thinks her darkness is her undoing. He thinks she’s his cure.
When her past and her future collide, he must choose between duty and heart.
The world or her?

Each book in the series is about a different sibling and their sin, so the romance has an ending in each book. As for the storyline, it’s just getting started

Michelle is from a small town in Eastern Kentucky where opossums try to blend in with the cats on the porch and bears are likely to chase your pets—this is very true, it happened with her sister’s dog. Despite the extra needed protection for your pets, she loves the mountains she calls home. She has a man and twin girls who are the light of her life and the reason she’s slightly crazy.
As a kid, she was that cousin, that friend, that sister and daughter, the talker who could spin a tale and make-believe into any little thing so it was no surprise when she found love in reading, and figured all these characters inside her head needed an outlet. They wanted to be heard, so she wrote.
The voices keep growing faster than she gets the time to write. 
The stories are never going to end. That’s perfectly okay, though. We never want to stop an adventure.

Title: Whole Lotta Frogs
Author: Samatha Harris
Genre: Standalone Romantic Comedy
 
Release Date: June 19, 2018
Blurb
My name is Lennox Brooks and I’ll admit, I’ve made a lot of mistakes. I
don’t take the big risks, I cover my insecurities with snark, I’ve shown my
crazy a few more times then I would’ve liked, and I’ve been trying, and failing
at love pretty much since I first grew tits.
Weirdos, Mama’s boys, the over-coiffed, and underwhelming, I’ve been
out with them all, just read my blog. I’ve got horror stories that would curl
your toes and singe your nose hairs, but none of them compare to the toad who
started it all, Ellis Walker.
He was the boy next door, the charming, infuriatingly gorgeous one who
broke my heart and disappeared without a trace. Now he’s back and determined to
throw my life into chaos, dredging up painful memories just when things were
getting good.
But the thing is there are always two sides to every story.
I’ve spent the better part of my life hating him for everything he put
me through, but without that resentment clouding my judgment how will I ever
resist him?
Love is complicated, appearances are deceiving, and sometimes you have
to kiss a whole lotta frogs before finding your prince.

Excerpt
I got ready in a fury and reread Ellis’s invasive text three times while
I fixed my hair and makeup, shaking my head each time and fighting back a
smile.
I still hadn’t answered when I started walking the six blocks to Sawyer’s
apartment. I’d barely stepped off the stoop of my building when my phone rang.
“You never answered my question,” Ellis said.
My lips curled up at the corners. “Of course, I didn’t.”
“Why not?”
“Because it’s none of your business.”
“Len, your nudity is absolutely my business.
In fact, I’m the CEO of that luscious body and I’m a hands-on kind of leader.”
I shook my head, unable to hold back my smile any longer. “Wow, you
managed to turn a creepy text into an even creepier metaphor. Kudos to you.”
Ellis laughed. “Are you?”
“Am I what?”
“Naked,” he said. “I’m about the hop in the shower and I need a visual
to, you know, help me finish the job.”
“You’re unbelievable.”
“Unbelievably sexy you mean.” I could hear the grin in his voice.
“Whatever.”
“Seriously, though,” he said. “What are you up to?”
“Well.” I took a deep breath, the ice-cold air burning my nose. “If you
must know, Sawyer offered to make me dinner. I’m on my way to his place.”
“Really?” he asked. “Great!”
I stopped short on the sidewalk my feet frozen to the pavement. People
around me grunted their disapproval and moved around me as I stood glued to the
concrete.
“Great?” What happened to throwing his hat in the ring?
“Yeah. I’m starved; I’ll meet you there in ten.”
“You can’t be serious.”
“I love his food—man, that guy can cook. Best decision I ever made, going
into business with him. Even if he’s trying to steal my woman.”
“Ellis!” I shouted into the phone. An elderly woman pulling a grocery
cart behind her glared at me for my outburst. I mouthed my apologies to her
then returned to my phone. “So help me God if you show up at Sawyer’s…”
“What’s the big deal? I’m friends with him. He’s friends with you. We can
all have dinner together, it’ll be fun.”
“You aren’t invited.”
“Oh, Len, I’m hurt. I thought we were moving forward. We’re friends,
aren’t we?”
I sighed. “Yes, we’re friends.”
“And friends sometimes eat together?” I groaned, not liking the route
this conversation was taking. “Sawyer and I are friends, which I expect might
change when I tell him how I feel about you. Oh, what the hell—we’ll just leave
him out of this and you and I will just go ourselves.”
“Smooth, Ellis,” I said. “Real smooth.”
“I am pretty smooth if I do say so myself. Not to mention devastatingly
handsome, and moderately charming.”
“Only moderately?” I asked.
“Yes, but don’t worry; I grow on you.”
I took a deep breath to calm my nerves and closed my eyes. “Please tell
me you are not going to show up this evening.”
Ellis laughed. “Relax. I won’t be interrupting your little dinner.”
“Thanks.” I checked the address and looked up at Sawyer’s building. The
door to which was sandwiched between a dry cleaner and a greasy pizza place.
“I’ve got to go. I’ll talk to you later.”
“Okay,” he said. “Lennox?”
“Yeah.”
He didn’t say anything right away. I just stood there, the cold wind
biting at my fingertips.
“Don’t—,” he started, his voice sounding almost pained.
“Don’t, what?”
I stood there listening to him breathe on the other end.
“Nothing.” He sighed.
I groaned and rolled my eyes. “Bye, Ellis.”

Author bio –

Author.to/LTMarshall

Leanne Marshall is a Scottish born and bred romance writer with more than the average person’s life experience. She has been a torrent of wild things, including singer in a girl band, animal rights activist and charity owner – worked in radio and offered jobs in TV.

A passionate, restless soul, who has always found peace in writing, the only way to calm that fiery spirit.

She uses her wit and dark humour to her advantage in her works and has been an avid reader for most of her life. Her influences vary, but from early life and a teen stint in journalism, she applies logic to most of her plot lines, is a self-confessed research fiend, and likes a lot of psychology behind her characters actions.

She currently resides in Central Scotland with her two children and Fiancée of 13 years, making waves in the book world with her signature ‘WTF moments’ she likes to apply in each story, hints of humour and devastating emotional rollercoaster rides.

Quote from L.T.Marshall – ‘Writing has always been an escape for me, loving that no matter what you are doing, where you are – you can create ideal fantasy and get lost in someone else’s life. I love nothing more than drawing a reader with me on a journey that tortures your every emotion before the grand exhale.’
