Synopsis:

He never thought he’d have a real family Christmas…

For the past eight years, Bill Smith has been unable to set down roots. But he never forgot the magical night he spent with an auburn-haired beauty in Last Stand, Texas. When she finally tracked him down, he was more than happy to donate a kidney to AJ, the son he never knew he had. But now that AJ is better, Bill wants more time with him and his mother. He wants a family.

Annie Burleson can’t help but be grateful to this almost-stranger for saving AJ’s life. Still, she’s a little wary. AJ has already been through so much—what if Bill leaves again? And with Christmas in full swing, it’s difficult to discern which emotions are festive and which are forever.

As Annie and Bill’s lives collide, their mutual love for AJ makes this more than a marriage of convenience. But is it enough to give them the family Christmas they all deserve?

My Review:

A Family For Christmas (The Burlesons of Texas, #2)A Family For Christmas by Nola Cross

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

What a sweet book to put me in the Christmas mood. This is the time of year I look forward to the most. Fall is and has always been my favorite of the four seasons. Christmas is my favorite holiday and each year I anticipate all the amazing Christmas romances to come. Once I start reading the holiday novels, I don’t stop until sometime in January. So far, this past month I’ve read a handful of them and each one was a breath of fresh air. I am not a first-time reader to this author so I knew I was going to love this book. A Family For Christmas was endearing, heartwarming and not only did I enjoy the book, I am excited for Christmas this year. 2020 has been a horrible year for so many of us with the Covid-19 virus affecting so, so many of us. My family, including myself were sick. In fact, I was sick with Flu for weeks starting in early January and then we all came down with Coronavirus in March/April, each of us affected with similar AND different symptoms. It left a mark on my family we will never forget. And because of months of illness, I could not read much. As a result, catching up on my reading has been a God send.

This book has amazing characters and an interesting, engaging story. While this book is the second in the Burleson’s series it can be read as a stand-alone. I actually did not read book one yet. That said, while I fully enjoyed this book, I believe that had I read book one beforehand, A Family For Christmas would have been even better given the characters from book were a part of the story.

The synopsis gives you a very good idea where the story is going and while many aspects were predictable, I did not mind. This book grabs my interest from the very first chapter and by the end, I was wishing for more. I am looking forward to the third book in the series where I know I will revisit with past characters. This is one of those series you’ll want to read. Filled with emotion, only a bit of angst, a lot of anticipation and lovable characters, A Family For Christmas found a special place in my heart.

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

#NewRelease ~ “Ruthless Bishop” Series: Sinners and Saints Book 3, by Author: Veronica Eden, Genre: Dark NA Romance/Bully Romance, Release Date: August 31, 2020, Available Now! ~ @authormarat @EJBookPromos


Title: Ruthless Bishop
Series: Sinners and Saints Book 3
Author: Veronica Eden
Genre: Dark NA Romance/Bully Romance
Release Date: August 31, 2020

 

THEA
One wrong move and it’s over.
I was invisible until I wasn’t.
One mistyped number became the catalyst to my hell on earth when I accidentally sent a risqué photo to the blackmail king of Silver Lake High. Now Connor Bishop holds it as a bargaining chip over my head. I’ve become his doll, at his mercy in a corrupt castle.
Better do as he says or else, or else, or else…
His thumb is on the send button every time I try to buck his command. Can I survive a private photo going viral instead of living this life of torment?
It’s not right. Maybe it’s time his castle burns down.
CONNOR
Secrets and favors built my throne.
Meek. Shy. Wholesome.
Thea Kennedy was picture-perfect innocence until she wasn’t. The unexpected photo is the juiciest secret to land in my lap in a while. Who knew she was hiding luscious curves under frumpy sweaters?
With one racy selfie, Thea stepped into my world, where I control the board. I’ll trap the little mouse and won’t let her escape the depraved kingdom I built.
But there are darker monsters than me lurking in the shadows. They want to take a bite out of my little mouse. I don’t like sharing what’s mine.

 

 

“You’re still not forgiven. I’m only here because you’re blackmailing me. I wouldn’t come near you otherwise.”

“You certainly were ready to come all over me before.” The glare I direct at him drops the temperature in the car by a few degrees. He blows out a slow, strained breath and grips the wheel with both hands. “Okay. Whatever. Noted.”

We ride in silence for a long stretch. The drive to school isn’t long, and I realize I’m wasting a good opportunity for the details I’m desperate for.

“So what’s our deal? Or rather, your deal that I have no choice but to accept because the alternative is…yeah, no thanks. Asshole.” I shift a little to face him better as we drive through Ridgeview, turning onto the tree-lined road that leads up to the school. “When did we get together? How did it happen?”

Connor cuts a look at me from the corner of his eye. “We’ll keep it simple so it’s easy to remember. We’ve grown up as neighbors. Got together over summer or something. You’re the girl next door, what’s not to like about that?”

I frown as he hitches a shoulder. “That’s unimaginative.”

Amusement crosses his face. “We could always use the true version: you sent me a wrong number nude and I was like aight.”

“You ass! We are not using that. And I wasn’t naked.”

“Yet. Shortly after?” Connor hums, shifting in the driver’s seat. “So gloriously naked.”

With a scandalized squeal, I swat his arm, overwhelmed by his proximity and what he’s saying. He drives me to things I never do.

He laughs. The corner of his mouth tugs up in a crooked grin as he turns the wheel with the heel of his palm, entering the student parking lot.

“You want a whirlwind romance, or something? I’m just trying to make it easy. It’s not like it’s real.”

The words slice me and I suck in a pained gasp.

It’s not real.

Right.

For as big as his SUV is, I’m suffocated by being so near to him while my emotions spiral.

Connor is my first actual boyfriend, but it’s all fake.

#NewRelease ~ “Show Stopper” Series: Chicago First Responders #1, by Author: BJ Harvey, Genre: Feel Good Rom/Com; Firefighter Romance, Release Date: August 31, 2020, Available Now ~ @bjharveyauthor @EJBooKPromos (See below for my Review)

Title: Show Stopper

Series: Chicago First Responders #1
Author: BJ Harvey
Genre: Feel Good Rom/Com; Firefighter Romance
Release Date: August 31, 2020


The first time they meet it’s by chance. The second is surely a coincidence. The third…it’s either destiny or he’s a stalker.
Renee Hamilton has a thing against men in uniform. In her experience, they play hard, lie harder. Marco Rossi has a thing for feisty brunette women with a backbone and a smart mouth, especially one in particular who’s playing hard to get.
She’s fiercely independent and wants better for herself.
He loves helping people so much it’s literally his job.
Worst case scenario, they crash and burn.
Lucky for Renee, Marco has a hose, he knows how to use it, and he happens to love putting out all kinds of fires; real or otherwise.
***
USA Today Bestselling Author BJ Harvey brings you Showstopper – Book 1 in a new spin-off to the Cook Brothers rom com series, featuring Chicago first responders fighting the good fight and finding love at the same time. Set in the same world as the Bliss, Game, and Cook Brothers series before it, this title can be read as a complete standalone.
Monday
Marco – Hey. How’s your day going? Fallen into the arms of any men lately?
Renee – Good afternoon, Lieutenant. I’ve had no showings today. I’m in the office proofing marketing materials and doing boring admin stuff. Unless I trip over my own feet and my fifty-five-year-old broker John catches me, I don’t think I’ll be needing your rescue services today.
Marco – I wouldn’t rule it out. So, what heels are you wearing?
Renee – Should I take that question as you admitting to a foot fetish?
Marco – Isn’t it a little early in our relationship to be asking about sexual preferences? 
Renee – Isn’t it a little presumptuous to be using labels?
Marco – Touché.
Renee – Don’t think I didn’t notice you didn’t answer my question, Lieutenant. 
Wednesday
Marco – My sister just told me you’re a closet Brewers fan. Please tell me she’s screwing with me, otherwise it might be the first thing in your con column.
Renee – Brewers . . . they’re a football team, right?
Marco – On my way to a call-out now, but don’t think I’m going to let this one go.
Renee – No, definitely not a Brewers fan. Cubs for life, through and through. I fly the W proudly. Be safe, Lieutenant.
Marco – Always, princess.
Renee – Princess. . . I like it.
Marco – Just say the word and I’ll bow down at your feet willingly.
Thursday 
Renee – Lieutenant Rossi, I’ve heard you are a good guy. Do you have further testimonials to support this claim?
Marco – You sure know how to make a long shift go faster. And no, I don’t have a collection of references to hand out to future dates.
Renee – That is a shame. Word-of-mouth is key in my line of work.
Marco – Surely my meddling sister’s confirmation that I’m not a douchebag is proof enough?
Renee – LOL. Skye might just see you as a charity case that needs a woman’s touch.
Marco – I’m trying so hard not to go near that one. I will say that I’m not afraid to put in the work to get a woman’s touch on my own.
Renee – I’ll put that in your pro column then.

 

Marco – I hope you’ve got a lot of room on that side of the list. You’re going to need it.

My 📝Review📝:
5 Stars!
This was my first book from this author, and I loved everything about it!
This book was amazing in many ways AND I’m thrilled I found a new author to read. Show Stopper is a spin-off of one of B.J.’s series.’ She has many books that are interconnected stand-alone and I am definitely going to be checking them out. One of my favorite aspects of any novel are secondary characters. If written well, they can make the book greater. If not, then focus is only on the main H/h and as a result the book can become a bit monotonous. That is not the case with this book. There are many secondary characters who, have a story to tell, a background you want to learn about. Truthfully, with this book, one of the secondary characters I want to see get a happily-ever-after is Scotty. There are quite a few characters so I hope the author will give us his book.

Now on to Show Stopper.. At first, I didn’t get the title. What does it have to do with a real estate agent and a firefighter? When that bit was revealed to me, I swooned. This hero was amazing. I also loved that he was older, in his late 30’s. Marco was at a place in his life where meaningless hookups got old. He wanted something more. He wanted a woman to wake up with and come home to every night. But Marco didn’t want a Suzy-homemaker. No, he wanted a sassy, independent woman who knew her own worth and made sure he knew it too. The moment Marco met Renee; he knew she could be the one he’s been searching for. Renee was a great character and I loved her take no nonsense persona. She was strong-willed and a go-getter. But she was also kind, caring, loving and deep inside, a woman afraid of having her heart broken again. The relationship between Marco and Renee started off slowly, as it should. Their chemistry was scorching from the very moment they met, however they did not jump into each other’s arms immediately.

I’m not going into details so you can enjoy this book on your own and I’ve no doubt you will. This book has humor, light angst, if any, a great group of supporting characters and a swoon-worthy hero. Of course there is an antagonist as well which adds a hint of suspense. All of these elements add up to a truly enjoyable read. I definitely recommend this book; a great start to B.J. Harvey’s new series.

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

Excerpt
My body behaved in two different manners. My stomach
revolted. My skin crawled. My teeth clenched. My heart banged. My limbs and
shoulders tensed. I was hunching and purring like a cat in front of a rabid
dog, praying he’d just go away.

At the same time, my skin tingled, my nipples hardened, my breath hitched, my
cheeks burned. My p*ussy throbbed. It was as if I liked the way he looked at
me. Welcomed it. Didn’t want it to end. Didn’t want him to go.

Even when he was on top of me uninvited.



But how? Why? I hated Enzio more than any other person in the world. I wanted
him to suffer. I wanted him dead.
It must have been his looks. My body burned and itched solely for these.
Trained to lust over them and only them. My pussy couldn’t recognize they now
belonged to the man that wanted to violate me and I was planning to destroy,
not the man I loved with all my heart.
Wrong husband, body. Wrong husband. We hate this one. Remember that. Please.

My 📝Review📝:

4.5 Stars
Take Me Completely is the fourth book in the Cockpit series by authors C. Lesbirel and Britney Bell. This book tells how Sullivan Parker finds his happily-ever-after. One, even he’ll admit, that he wasn’t looking for. But these things seem to jump up at you and so here goes the story of billionaire pilot of Parker airlines. These Parker siblings are like none I’ve read before. Not too many hero pilots come my way. When I was first offered the Christmas novella for an honest review last Fall, I jumped at it. I love romances set around holidays and Christmas romances are my favorite genre of all. In the novella, Cockpit Christmas, the Parker family is introduced while they are vacationing away for the holidays which is their tradition. The novella is told from the POVs of the Parker parents. I loved that book so much so I couldn’t wait for the first Parker sibling’s book. So far, each book is better than the one before. Both these authors write so well together that you can’t tell where one ends and the other begins.

While I loved Sullivan from the beginning (actually I’ve loved him from the previous books), Hope was not easy to love. Let me explain. Hope Carson is a famous country music artist. She does not have time for relationships nor is she looking for one. While she is fed up with her lifestyle, she loves making music and performing for her fans. I think my biggest problem with Hope was her hot and cold persona. I adored Sully so much and didn’t like how she treated him for the first half or so of the book. Of course, Hope couldn’t resist the Parker charm and she gave in to her growing feelings.

I don’t want to tell you about their journey because I want you to love this book on your own. If you haven’t read the previous books, don’t worry because they are all stand-alone. But I do recommend you read them. I believe your reading experience will be even better. As usual, I can’t wait for the next Parker sibling’s book. Thankfully, these books have been releasing in a timely manner which I appreciate very much.

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

BELLE’S CURVES
BY BARBRA CAMPBELL
Release Date: August 17, 2020
Belle:
Shaking things up
was my superpower. Or as some people might say, I tended to stir up trouble
wherever I went.
Case in point: I
wanted to have an evening of fun rubbing elbows with professors, or at least
one of them.
The problem: I was a
student and the soiree was only for professors.
The solution and
benefit: Crash said soiree and shag the sexy professor I’d had my eye on since
freshman year.
The fallout: My
ethics professor wound up in the hospital and Sexy Professor was filling in. He
figured out I hadn’t exactly been invited to the party. He was pissed I’d
violated the university’s strict policy about professor-student contact. And he
was doing his darndest to adhere to the ridiculous policy that ignored the fact
we were consenting adults.
But since I had a
superpower, I wasn’t about to let the best sex of my life be a one-time thing.
Professor Lewis:
One more boring
back-to-school soiree, one more tedious semester, and one more round of
evaluations before I finished my probationary period from a false sexual
harassment claim.
Then I’d be eligible
for promotion to Department Head. I was so close. One final semester under the
oppressive thumb of the old guard.
Then I met Belle and
all of her curves.

TEACHER’S PET
BY POPPY PARKES
Release Date: August 18, 2020
As a kid who grew up in foster care, it comes as a shock to
discover at age forty-two that I do have family. More specifically, recently
deceased family — an aunt I never knew I had who left her fortune to her
closest surviving relative.
That’s me.
It doesn’t take me long to put that money to good use. 
I divorce the crap out of my cheating husband who’s always
rubbed his affairs in my face, saying I’m too old to start over with somebody
new and that I’m lucky to have him.
Yeah, I am lucky — lucky to be rid of him.
But now I’m alone for the first time in two decades, and I
have no idea what to do with my life. How do you press the restart button on
life when you’re courting menopause and have more wrinkles and curves than
you’d prefer?
I don’t know what most people do, but I enroll in a poetry
course at the local university that I’ve always wanted to take but haven’t had
the guts to.
I go to class expecting to pick up some tips about rhymes
and iambs.  Instead, I get knocked over by the sight of my super freaking
hot — and decades younger — teacher, locally famed poet Rowan Keating. He sets
my panties on fire in a way I haven’t felt in years. 
Since I’m doing this new thing of going for the things I
want, I initiate an inappropriate relationship with Mr. Keating — only to find
out that he’s protecting a huge secret.
He won’t tell me what it is. I’m terrified that he’s after
the money that gave me all this glorious freedom. I have to protect that at all
costs.  
The only problem is that Mr. Keating treats me like a lady
and makes me feel like a goddess. And the sex — well, it’s off the damn
charts. 
I don’t want to walk away from him, but is it too risky to
stay?

PRINCIPLES OF LOVE

BY ELISA LEIGH

Release Date: August 19, 2020

Fawn Harrow has been teaching for a few years and has
decided to transfer to a school closer to home. She loves her kids, her third
grade team, and the fact that her best friend works there is totally
awesome. Everything is going great until she spots the principal during
preplanning and is attracted to him immediately. She stays out of his path
never making direct contact with him. Surprisingly it’s easier than she thought
it would be, until it isn’t.
Brighton Hayes loves his job. He’s been the principal at his
school for three years and he’s damn good at it. During the summer his father
passed away and had to leave the state to go deal with his affairs. He left the
hiring of new teachers in his assistant principal’s hands. When he comes back
and meets the new teachers he’s shocked by one of them. She’s stacked like a
pinup model from the fifties and sexy as hell. He stays as far away from her as
he can, not wanting to risk a scandal at his school. When it’s time to start
teacher observations he refuses to let the assistant principal do hers. Fifteen
minutes in her room watching her teach is all it takes for him to know he’s
about to teach her a lesson she’ll never forget.

REBEL TEACHER
BY RENEE HARLESS
Release Date: August 20, 2020
From one-night stands to bake sales, a single mom gets a
lesson in love. . .
The only thing more terrifying than sending her baby to
Kindergarten was Paige Myers finding out that the hottie she hooked up with
over the summer was her daughter’s new teacher.
It was only supposed to be a one-time thing.
But the way reformed rebel Shane Lancaster was looking at
her in the drop off line, there was no doubt they were far from over.
She wasn’t just the mother of a student, Paige was gorgeous,
kind. . . and his best friend’s little sister. Complicated didn’t cover it.
The school handbook clearly stated no parent-teacher
fraternization, but lucky for Paige, Shane liked to break the rules.

STUDY DATES

BY SHAW HART

Release Date: August 22, 2020

Isn’t three better than one?
Adley Colson has grown up stifled.
When her mother left, running from her strict and
controlling husband, that left Adley to take the brunt of his disapproval. When
she graduates from high school, she’s counting down the days until college
starts and she can escape from his domineering presence.
Her first day of freshman year she runs into one of the
Sanders brothers and she wonders if college is going to be more than just
classes and homework like she had thought. Guys have never been on her radar so
when all three Sanders brothers start to show interest in her, she’s not
prepared.
She knows how her father would feel about the unusual
relationship that her boys are proposing, but it doesn’t sound so wrong to
Adley. It certainly doesn’t feel wrong.
When the time comes and Adley has to choose, will she bend
to her father’s will or follow her heart?
