👑Blurb👑

 

Incoming text from the King: This is absolutely preposterous. You will bring yourself back to the castle this instant.

Me: Dad, I have to live. If I am to rule the whole damn kingdom how do I do that if I have never even been outside of it?

The King: You are the sole heir to the throne, what are you expecting to find out there that you can’t find in here? Do you know how dangerous it is out there?

Me: No, but I intend to find out.

I have been sheltered and hidden away from the people from an early age, I was supposed to becoming a ruler but I had no idea how to fend for myself. I have to prove to myself and to my family that I am more than just royalty, more than just next in line for the throne. Besides, no one has to know who I really am. I can trick them all.

👑Excerpt👑

 

“Why are you doing that? Why are you letting Candace force you to do things you don’t want to do?” 

Bridget opened her mouth to say something but then closed it again as she understood what I’d said. “What makes you think I’m letting her force me to do anything?”

“Bridget, please, it’s obvious that you don’t want to be here, and that you are inexperienced with all of this. You don’t have to do anything you don’t want to do. I don’t understand why you are just going along with what Candace wants. Is she your mother or something?” I asked, letting my frustration get the better of me.

“Are you my father?” A small twinge of rebellion sparked in her gorgeous hazel eyes. “I know what I’m doing. I don’t understand why everyone always wants to protect me from things. Let me live my damn life. If I wanted to leave, I would have left on my own.” 

My jaw dropped; now, she was saying that she wanted to be there. I couldn’t believe it. “Are you kidding me? I saw you from across the room; you looked like you wanted the floor to suck you up.”

“See, this is exactly what I mean. Everyone is always assuming they know what’s best for me. Candace is the only one who treats me like an adult. The only who lets me experience life, all of it instead of just the easy parts.”

I put my hands up in surrender, “Look, it seemed to me like you needed help. I was just trying to make sure you were good.”

“Next time, if I need help let me ask for it, until then just mind your own business.” She spoke clearly and loudly. 

“Whatever, I don’t have time for this. Have a good night.” I turned and walked away, leaving her to have her fun with her friends. 

I knew what I saw. I could tell Bridget wasn’t having a good time no matter what she was trying to convince both herself and me of, but she was right. I should have just minded my own business. I was the last one to try and convince anyone to be mature or responsible. Anyone who has ever known me could attest to that. I am what you would call a party animal. At least I was before I came to Mariager. 

I didn’t care about my schooling or my responsibilities or even my well being, for that matter. I was known for participating in extreme sports and death-defying stunts. Of course, everyone in my family told me that one day me being so carefree would come back and bite me in the ass, and they were right. My girlfriend of three years and the woman I was sure I was going to marry left me because she didn’t feel she had security. She thought I was still acting like a prepubescent child instead of the adult that I should be. That wasn’t what she wanted for her life. For the first time in my life, I felt like I was a waste. Like my life was nothing more than parties, booze, and money. It was a good life, but I understood how she could want more. I wanted more. It took me ten minutes to make my way back to my small hostel room. All the way there all I could think about was how upset Bridget was with me, I wanted to push it out of my mind, but I couldn’t. I was worried about the woman no matter how much of a big girl she tried to convince me she was.

Meg Dukette
When life gives you lemons, you make lemonade.
I believe in living my best life, and if surviving cancer taught me anything, it’s exactly that. I wake every day in the most beautiful city in the South, I’m a chef at my own restaurant, and everything is just the way I want it: easy, calm, and in perfect harmony—that is, until my best friend shows up with his wounded heart, smoldering gaze, and adorable dimples. Now, things are changing—we are changing—but with the promises I’ve made to myself, I don’t want them to. After everything I’ve been through, breaking them now seems unthinkable, but the alternative might be a lesson my heart’s not prepared to learn.
Jack Willett
Just when you think life is the best it’s ever been, fate has a way of intercepting.
I’ve spent ten years playing in the NFL, and with one wrong hit, my world comes crashing down. Now, I’m at the crossroads of what might become my past and a very different future. What I need is time and my best friend. Her gorgeous smiles, sexy legs, and optimistic outlook on life make the world brighter, better, and I’ve quickly found myself craving her more and more. She says we’re just friends, says that’s all we’ll ever be, but actions speak louder than words. It’s time to change the game, and I’m ready to pass the ball. I just hope she’ll be on the other end to catch it.
He’s her best friend.
She’s quickly turned into something more.
Will making a play for her heart be more bitter than sweet? Or will it add just the right amount of zest to make the most delicious ending of all . . .

One night. That’s all it takes for a person’s life to forever be changed. One chaotic, unexpected, inevitable night and hundreds of bullets, two of them hitting my parents. I was born to be a Soulless King, born with sworn enemies and a loyal streak. Like a phoenix, I rise from the ash and vow to bring hell upon those responsible.
The problem with my vow is I’m not sure who is to blame. They tell me it’s the temptress with emerald eyes, the one who used to share my bed. How can I be sure since she left without giving me the chance to find out the truth?
Now that she’s back, she won’t get away before I ask my questions. But what if I don’t like the answers?

Synopsis:

She’s playing the field…

Emma Garcia is ready to put down roots in Last Stand, Texas, and she’s ready for love – but only with someone settled and responsible. Professional wanderers like her ex-boyfriend, ballplayer Wes Ramsey, are exactly what she doesn’t need. Except when Wes walks into the local dance hall during her date with someone else, Emma can’t think about anyone but her sexy ex.

He’s ready to score…

Wes is ready for the ride of his life now that his baseball career is taking off. He just needs to tie up loose ends at his family’s farm before spring training, a task he can’t focus on when the hometown rumor mill informs him that Emma is speed dating her way through the Last Stand locals in a bid to settle down. Wes knows he should leave well enough alone. But one hot look from his ex has him rethinking their split – and determined to show her what she’s missing!

Scoring Position (Texas Playmakers, #3)Scoring Position by Joanne Rock

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This has been a tough month for me. With everything going on in our country these days, reading a good book should be first and foremost on my “need to do to relax list.” Yes, I do have a list like that. However, since I haven’t been feeling well, it has been difficult to read. My focus and comprehension seemed to have taken a vacation and as a result, it‘s taking me days instead of hours to finish a book. Even though I’m feeling better each day, it has been difficult getting back to routine. I couldn’t have been happier when I tapped to the last page on my Kindle last night. Scoring Position was an easy read. The pace was smooth, the characters were all likable. And while the main H/h were complex individuals, this book did not have an overabundance of angst. So, for me, it was a smooth, enjoyable read about second chance romance.

Wes and Emma had a past. They were college sweethearts and could have easily taken their relationship to permanency. However, they had different goals so Emma thought it would be best to break up before their hearts were too involved. BOTH their hearts were already involved. Unfortunately, at that time in their lives, they didn’t fight to stay together. But now, years later, they will get a second chance. Unfortunately, the same issues are prevalent that broke them up the first time.

Since this book is not very long, and has a steady reading pace, you should read it on your own to find out what happens. I’ll admit, as Wes and Emma tried to navigate a new relationship, I really worried how this book would end. Sacrifices would be needed and it didn’t seem like either would make any. At times, I felt both Wes and Emma were a bit selfish and that frustrated me. But the more I became engaged in the story; I found myself rooting for them both. In the end, Wes and Emma did not let me down. The book ended perfectly for me. I’m very glad I got to read this.

One more thing…..Scoring Position is book three in the Texas Playmakers series. I did not read the first two books but that made no difference, being this could be easily read as a standalone; I had no trouble enjoying it. As soon as I catch up with life, I will definitely be going back to read the first two books. I recommend this to anyone who loves romance, likable characters, and second chances.

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

Excerpt

 

©EDEN BUTLER 2020
 
She was winter. The cold, cool stretch of emptiness that you think will
consume you. The frigid bite you think won’t ever leave your bones, the one you
try to pretend isn’t there, but can’t keep out of your head. 
She was fall and the scent of a fire, the crackle of heat, the coming of
change you try to pretend won’t come, but does anyway, that you wait for the
whole year, that you wish away when it finally comes.
She was summer and the scorching warmth of sun and sin, the slick feel of
lotion and the spray of ocean water, the salt of that taste on your tongue and
the cool, crisp relief that comes over you when you dip inside the bottomless
water.
She was spring, the fresh sweet smell of jasmine and the honeysuckle
temptation of light and love and beautiful rebirth that cannot be ignored.
Willow was the phantom spark of all those things I loved and hated. The things
that tested me. The things that healed, all wrapped up in that tempting
silhouette, in the sweet surrender of her body pressed against mine and the
whisper of a tease in every syllable that formed my name from her full, thick
lips.
“Nash.” It was a song sweeter than Coltrane. Hurt worse, too, my name,
the hidden tone of promises and pleasure I’d stopped telling myself I didn’t
want.
Four seasons laid out before me. Willow’s wild hair fanned against my
pillow and her waiting body—pale skin and a trail of freckles that crossed her
chest and dipped with the curves along her stomach.
“Nash,” she said again, reaching for me when I came to my knees, looking
down at her, wanting her with an ache nothing had ever worked up in me.
There were two small lines along her hips, lightning on her skin and the
round bends of her breasts, the sweet arches along her thighs when I touched
her there. That look, though, went deeper, settled closer than the scent of her
skin or rise in my body when I watched her shimmy out of her clothes and crawl
on my bed, waiting, ready for me to react.
Now I was and I had to breathe deep, separate the want someone else held
in my dream and the urge to take what was mine and mine alone; what I wanted
for myself because of the sensation only Willow moved in me.
“Take off your shirt,” she said and I did, working one shoulder at a time
out of that cotton, discarding it because it kept me from her. She touched me,
nails against the lines and letters over my body, her mouth, her tongue warm
and soft on my neck, over my chest, traveling like a wanderer, searching,
seeking.
We came together like colors, moving into a gradient of light, of motion
that reminded me of the sea, waves and water, sand and shore. We were sweeter
than those Coltrane chords, went deeper than each note.
“Will… I could never get my fill of you…” I told her, moving closer, lips
and tongue on her flesh, in the dips of her body. The invitation open, ready as
she pulled me close. I took another bite, moving her apart with my knee,
holding her tight until there were small marks from my fingers against her pale
skin and she shuddered, gripping, clawing at me like she couldn’t get close
enough. “I’m… I’m so sorry about that day at my building…”
“I don’t… Nash… it doesn’t matter.” She pulled me closer, like she didn’t
want the words between us keeping our lips apart. “Nash… please…” And that
melody spurred me on, had me forgetting control and patience and all the
swagger I thought made me smooth. I was nothing but feeling, touch, and taste,
and desperate, desperate want with her under me, with me slipping inside, deep,
sweet.
Free.
