About the Author:

A self-proclaimed reader enthusiast, Kristy started her writing journey back in 2009, reading and writing when her daughter was napping. Establishing her place in Corporate America (because something had to pay the bills), writing became her dirty, late-night secret.

After eight long years, she released her debut novel, Commander in Briefs. It was a long road, but she can honestly say, the road less traveled had the most beautiful sights.

The only thing Kristy Marie loves as much as reading and writing is sports! Especially those that require muscles and a nice ass. Her favorite is, and always will be, baseball. She’s such a fan, that she even married her small town’s high school’s centerfielder where they still live with their three badass kids.

Secrets of the World's Worst Matchmaker (The Baileys, #7)Secrets of the World’s Worst Matchmaker by Piper Rayne

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Being a huge fan of Piper Rayne and particularly this series, I have anticipated Juno and Colton’s book since the very first Bailey Book was released. From the first Book, which is Austin’s story, we are introduced to a bit of the dynamic of Juno and Colton. Are they just best friends? Are they more but keeping it a secret? And most importantly…Why are they not a couple yet? The author gave us some insight into the whys in Secrets of the World’s Worst Matchmakerhowever it was nothing I hadn’t already guessed. Even the situation with Colton and Brigette did not end up surprising me. The author went back in time to give us glimpses of Juno and Colton as they grew together. I wished there was more. I felt as if something was missing. I really hate saying this because I love the Bailey’s so much and am such a huge fan of Piper Rayne but I can’t help feeling this book was rushed or not given enough thought. Conflicts resolved too easily; there wasn’t a lot of angst and I felt a lot of the book was predictable. Please don’t misunderstand. I enjoyed reading Juno and Colton’s story and it was well-written but from the first chapter, I felt there could be more for these two characters. This is just my opinion and you should make your own. I did have very high expectations going in and I expected more angst and drama.

While I kept going back in forth in my head about my feelings for Juno, Colton was amazing from the start. Of all the heroes I have read this year, Colton is one of my favorites. His patience and kindness as well as his loyalty to Juno were beautiful. At times Colton did come off a bit sappy but that was one of the traits about him I loved so much. He deserved a happily-ever-after and I was so relieved when he finally got it. So, all that being said, I did not hate this book; I’m glad I got to witness Colton and Juno finally become a couple. The last pages of the book give us glimpses of what’s to come. And from those bits into Sedona and Kingston’s stories, I am suspecting a lot more angst. I’m not sure which book will come first but it doesn’t matter to me. With only two Bailey siblings left, that means this series is going to be over and that saddens me. The Baileys have been one of my favorite series and I hate to have to say goodbye. If you haven’t read any of the books, I recommend you do. I would also start with book one as you will have a more enjoyable reading experience.

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

It’s official.
I, Ainsley James, am crazy.
Desperate and crazy.
It’s the only explanation as to why I’m nauseous, standing outside Maverick Lexington’s door.
I mean, it’s possible the stories about his deck of playing cards—with the words IOU scrawled across the back—are just rumors of the ruthless quid pro quo deals he barters.
But the flutters in my stomach know better.
Maverick is as cold as they come.
But, I need one of those cards.
I NEED to owe Maverick Lexington a favor…
Whatever the terms, I’m willing to pay.
Because, at this point, I have nothing left to lose.

IOUIOU by Kristy Marie

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Fantastic! Not sure what I expected after reading the blurb. But let me tell you that this book was a pleasure, an unpredictable literary surprise.

Falling in love with a book is such an amazing experience but when you can equally adore both main characters, you have the best of the best. As I said a couple of sentences ago, after reading the blurb, I truly couldn’t guess where the premise was taking me. Again, another plus for me in finding a great read. And if those alone aren’t enough reasons to read this winner, read on and I will give you more.

This year thus far has been tough on me physically for a few different reasons, the last being the COVID-19 virus. I know that has affected so many of us in different ways. While I was sick, I was not able to read. I was constantly dizzy and tired. If I even tried to read, the words put me to sleep. More than once one of my family members removed my Kindle from my chest as I slept. To make matters worse, when I was finally able to stay awake long enough to read, I could not focus at all. I wasn’t able to comprehend a single sentence. But I am doing well now and trying to catch up with everything. Reading was a very entertaining and engaging experience. I haven’t read as many 5-star books this year as usual so I was ecstatic reading Kristy Marie’s latest. All the feels and emotions are present. Unpredictability was another. There is some suspense and angst as well as a supportive secondary cast of complex characters that I know Kristy will treat us with books for. Let’s not forget humor, sass, and intense chemistry and attraction. All aspects of this novel were original. IOU is one of my favorite books to date. This author has always given me everything I look for in a novel and this book has that and spades. (no pun intended. You’ll have to read to see what I mean).

I am sorry but I refuse to give you even a hint of what Maverick and Ainsley are up to in this book. One of my favorite aspects of reading was my constant guessing. I promise you will love IOU and highly recommend it to everyone who loves a sassy, but independent heroine and a broody, alpha hero who will keep you glued to every page.

This is my honest and unbiased opinion. Thank you for taking the time to read my review of IOU.

Synopsis:

We barely knew each other back then. What kind of chance do we have now?

Twenty plus years ago, I shared a magical, tragic kiss with my secret crush. Silver was every girl’s dream–and I was a socially awkward rich girl. We lived on different sides of town and ran in totally different crowds. When we bumped into each other that fateful night, no words were spoken–our souls knew who we were to one another. But life rolled on and off to college we both went. Never to see each other again.

Until now.

When Silver steps back into my life unexpectedly, my world stops. His looks have only intensified over the years, and when he says my name “Gin,” for the first time again… I melt.

Is my dream coming to life for the second time?

My 📝Review📝: 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟

SilverSilver by A.E. Gamrat

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

First, I want to tell you that I was on the fence between four or five stars. This book was written beautifully. Every word set the stage for great dialogue and the monologue gave me the perfect picture. I was there! I love being “in” the book, watching things unfold up close and personal. We all have heard of the expression, “fly on the wall.” Well, I felt like one. In addition, this is my first book by A.E. Gamrat. Though I have seen this author’s name many times, I never read one of her books. Yay for me to find a new author!

Silver and Ginny…..
These two, now forty-somethings, knew each other when they were in their late teens. Both had a crush on the other but circumstances kept them from doing anything about it. But they did have one moment that neither one has ever forgotten. Ginny went off to college they never saw each other again. Both living lives that could have been better. Almost thirty years later, they meet by chance and both realize in that moment that they wished they were more than the barely friends they were. While Ginny was free of her ex-husband and living on her own, she began to find herself; the woman she was always meant to be. I don’t want to give away too many details as you will want to experience these characters on your own. But I will say that at first, I wasn’t sure of my feelings for her. I know she went through a less than stellar marriage but she came off a bit winey and a little too independent. Of course, I understand the reasons for that having read the book but still, it made me a bit critical of her. After she reconnected with Silver, I truly worried, because of how she wanted to be on her own, that she might break his heart. But then as you read on, you’ll see that Ginny has many insecurities that Silver will have to help her overcome.

Silver is one of my all-time favorite 2020 heroes! He had such an amazing, lovable personality. Silver was determined that Ginny would not get away from him a second time, status be damned. As much as Silver was determined, he was vulnerable. Hence the reason I was afraid he’d unintentionally end up with a broken heart if he didn’t tread carefully.

Even though the chemistry and attraction was immediate, both Ginny and Silver’s relationship developed very slowly. And while I wished it would move a bit quicker, in the end I was glad that it didn’t. This book has so many realistic qualities and relatable moments for me. My strong connection was to Silver. If he was a woman, he would be me.

There are a great deal many secondary characters in Silver. Ginny has two amazing friends that I can’t help but to wish a happy ending for. Maybe one day in the future we’ll get to read about them. This book is one I definitely recommend to my friends.

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

NKAS teaser excerpt (1)

Synopsis:

Kiki

Ellis Atwood is the devil. Ok, maybe that’s too harsh. Ellis Atwood is ruining my life.
First, he demolishes a perfectly good wedding trellis.
Second, he destroys a gorgeous doggie wedding that I spent ages planning. (I kid you not.)
Third, he makes me feel all warm and fuzzy, and that is not ok. I prefer the cold and harsh way my fiancé makes me feel so much better. (wait, that didn’t come out right.)
Fourth, and there is a fourth, he gets me all wound up and flustered.
And last, when he unexpectedly kissed me it made me forget my own name, or the fact that I’m getting married…in a month.
Please someone help me out. I’m a mess.
Worst part is, Ellis isn’t the bad guy I first thought he was.
And being forced to spend time with him is making me realize that he needs my help more than anything.
So what’s a girl like me to do?

Ellis

I’m only in town long enough to figure out a plan with my brother on how to save our brewery from the awfulness that is my father. Oh and be in a wedding.
Where I may or may not be crushing a little too hard on the bride-to-be. (spoiler alert, I’m crushing hard.)
She’s really cute. Like seriously.
And she has the cutest job, she’s a dog wedding planner. (I kid you not.)
I can see why Henry loves her.
I can see why everyone loves her.
I can see why I’m falling for her.
I’m usually not a relationship-type guy. Call it picky or whatnot, but usually I get bored easily. So, my plan is simple. Spend as much time with Kiki (soon to be Faniki, I know) and hopefully get bored with her adorkable smile and sexy legs that go on for miles.
Then, I can save the brewery, be the best man of the wedding, and get my butt back to Atlanta and away from the happy couple.

Never Kiss a StrangerNever Kiss a Stranger by Logan Chance

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Originality, humor, endearing characters and the most adorkable novel I’ve read in a long time, if ever. Off the top of my head, I can honestly say this book does not compare to anything I’ve read in a long, long time. Never Kiss A Stranger was so much fun to read and the perfect distraction to what we as a country have been dealing with these past weeks. Including myself, my entire family has been sick which was the only reason it took me several days to read this amazing book. My head was so foggy, I just couldn’t get through it in one sitting. I can only imagine how much more I would have loved this book; when I am 100% feeling better, I want to read it again.

I know I always say this but this author has never written a book I haven’t loved. The fact he can write perfectly in any romance trope and genre is a gift I wish more authors had. I don’t need a synopsis, teaser or beautiful cover to know I’m going to read his books regardless.

So, this book? Yeah, you might want to read it in a private corner without your family constantly asking, “what’s so funny” or “why are you blushing?” I am a huge fan of romantic comedy and this book was one of my all-time favorites. A lot of authors can successfully write romcom, but that number is few and far between if you’re looking for a laugh out loud, adorkable book that will cause second-hand embarrassment and the most lovable couple, ever! Logan Chance gave me everything in this novel and I more than recommend it. I’m telling you; you need to read this book!

Without giving any spoilers, I’ll tell you that Kiki and Ellis’ first meeting set the stage for an incredibly fun story. And if you wondering about cheating, there is none! This book has a touch of angst to give it a more realistic feel. The pace is steady and the words flow smoothly. There are a few secondary characters that I wonder if we’ll see in the future. In addition to a great story, the author takes us to Florida, specifically Jupiter. I have been there before years ago and I enjoyed visiting again through Logan’s storytelling. Florida is literally my second home and if you’ve never visited, there is so much to do and see aside from the theme parks. Hey, if you’re interested, you can arrange a dog wedding with Kiki. 😉

We need more books like Never Kiss A Stranger.. Don’t make a mistake; grab this book. If fact, if you do, I’d love to chat about it with you!

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

Synopsis:

Tragedy brought us together, but something stronger made me want to stay.

Julian was the boy next door. My brother’s best friend, he fit with my family in ways I never could. While he and Rhett went on to play house, I left the only life I knew, desperate for a fresh start.

Until everything changed.

Heartache came along, and the aftermath of my brother’s death was here to stay. I was now face to face with Julian more than I ever wanted to be.

Being around him brought up all my insecurities, forced me to deal with hard truths, and conjured up feelings I had no business entertaining. He wasn’t the man I thought I knew. He was complex and layered, and inherently beautiful in all the ways I’d never noticed.

Not on another person.

Not on another man.

Not until him

Without YouWithout You by Marley Valentine

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Absolutely amazing! This author blew me away and that doesn’t surprise me one single bit. Marley Valentine can write heartbreak like no body’s business. This, hands down, is my favorite book of hers. Brilliantly written with such obvious attention to detail. The author takes this story to a colossal level of poignancy and you have to wonder, because of that, how will she give us the happy ending we desire. Well, she accomplishes that and so much more. Without You is an unforgettable story of two amazingly beautiful people. Behind their broken and tormented hearts are two men who deserve the world. And while they will find love, loyalty, and undoubtedly happiness, Deacon and Julian’s journeys a very difficult one.

While you can infer much of the premise from the synopsis, there is so much more going on mentally and even morally. Guilt is heavy within Deacon and Julian’s hearts and the path they need to traverse is difficult as well as unfamiliar. While the relationship development is a slow burn, it needed to be that way for this book to be believable.

I am being purposely vague with my review as there is so much complexity and depth to this story. I will not ruin any of it for you. If you have read any books from Marley Valentine before, then you know she will give you an amazingly written story with all the feels. If you haven’t read her books before, I highly recommend that you do; whether you are a fan of MM Romance or not. This book was very far from smut. It was beautiful.

One more element I want to add is that once I started this book, I knew it was one I wanted to savor and not devour. I purposely took my time reading it over the course of a few days so it could be with me longer. I cried in relief and happiness after reading the last page. And I was so disappointed when the book was finished. That said, I know I will carry Deacon and Julian in my hearts for a long time coming. It won’t be easy to replace these characters.

Marley Valentine…..thank you for such an incredibly, touching and heartwarming novel!

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

Synopsis:

Opposites resist—and attract—under the Cancún sun in this emotional Accidental Billionaires novel by New York Times bestselling author J.S. Scott.

Years ago, Noah Sinclair promised his dying mother that he’d stay strong and work hard for his younger brothers and sisters. Even with the Sinclairs’ newfound wealth, Noah has never steered from that blue-collar drive. His siblings think it’s time—with the gift of a Cancún vacation. To Noah, being forced to relax isn’t bliss. It’s a chore. Especially under the watch of a beautiful family friend enlisted to make sure every laptop under the sun stays closed.

All Andie has to do is convince a handsome billionaire to take a deep breath? It should be a dream for the bohemian travel writer. If Noah—a workhorse so resistant to change—weren’t spoiling for a fight. But no matter how hard Noah pushes her away, Andie is pushing back. She promised she’d teach Noah to embrace every pleasure in life. It’s a promise she made to herself once, too.

What begins as a battle of wills becomes a chance for Noah and Andie to open their hearts and share their fears. Night after intimate night. It’s the last thing they expected from Cancún, and it’s what they need the most. Even if it isn’t supposed to be forever.

My 📝Review📝: 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟

Enchanted (The Accidental Billionaires #4)Enchanted by J.S. Scott

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

During the past year or so, J.S. Scott has become my favorite author in the Billionaire Romance category. With her stories, it’s not all about the money. Her characters bring passion, complexity and sincerity to every page. Especially, The Accidental Billionaires series. Each book I read in the series becomes my favorite. And Enchanted was no exception. In fact, I’d say it’s my favorite J.S. Scott book to date. And another aspect that is so great, is that I haven’t yet read all her Billionaire books. Looking forward to that as soon as I can find some extra time. Also, this author can write a story with all the feels, the angst is always enough to keep you invested but not over -the -top. I love my happy endings but sometimes to get there, the angst is just too much and I find I just want a book to end already. But not with this author, and not with this book. I was engaged in every word until the very end. I just can’t wait until the next Sinclair sibling gets their book!

Noah and Andie…..
Ok…if you have read any books in this series, then you know these Sinclair siblings did not grow up Billionaires. In fact, they have had a very tough life. The oldest sibling, Noah, has had to grow up too soon. Since his late teens, he has been the provider, protector and what holds what’s left of his family together. The dynamic between the Sinclair siblings was amazing; believable. They loved each other and were loyal to each other to a fault.

Even now, when money is not and will never be an issue again, Noah can’t seem to turn his obsessiveness to provide for his siblings off. It has not yet sunk in, that being poor will never be an issue again. I want to stop here and say that my heart belonged to Noah from very early on. His character was endearing and there was just nothing negative about his personality, except for his workaholic persona.

When Noah’s siblings send him on a two-week vacation, the first he’s ever had, Noah is annoyed and frustrated. He doesn’t want to go away, doesn’t want to stop working, doesn’t believe he is entitled to have any fun. Despite his complaints about the vacation, he goes as not to upset his siblings.

Andie has her own sad, and traumatic story, one I will not go into because that is an aspect that makes this book more emotional. I just can’t spoil that for you. Andie is a travel journalist with her own blog and she just happens to be Noah’s youngest brother’s best friend. When he asks her to go on vacation with Noah and make sure he has fun instead of working, Andie is delighted. First because she loves traveling. Second because she would never say no to Owen. And thirdly, because once upon a time, Noah’s kindness and welcoming persona gave Andie something she never had but desperately needed at a young time in her life.

As you read each page, more of the story will unfold. Andie and Noah find themselves both having a great time with each other. But when the two-week vacation is over, the real angst begins. I loved every single page of the book! Every word. This author knows how to write incredible stories with heart and passion. In addition, her characters are some of my favorites ever found on the pages.

I absolutely recommend this book! Enchanted is a standalone and the series can be read out of order but to have to best reading experience, I recommend you start from the beginning.

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

Synopsis:

A Christmas in Last Stand brings unexpected gifts to two very different people…

Detective Sean Highwater may be one of the famous Highwaters, but he has always felt a half-step off because of the way his agile mind works. Only learning to focus has enabled him to not just survive, but thrive.

Elena de la Cova is from a respected and highly regarded founding family, brought up with rather stringent expectations, but right now she is a widow trying to raise a son she doesn’t understand.

If Last Stand had royalty, in Sean’s book it would be elegant Elena. He’s willing to help her son as he had been helped, but being that close to Elena scares him to death since he’s been in awe of her for years. Elena is impressed both with the way Sean gets through to her son, and with his appreciation for the Christmas customs of her culture as much as his own.

Their perceptions of each other shift, but will the passion that strikes between them be enough to overcome their perceptions of themselves?

📝My Review📝:   🎄🎄🎄🎄🎄

A Lone Star Christmas (Texas Justice, #3)A Lone Star Christmas by Justine Davis

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

A beautifully written, complex and passionate story. Two people who have been through great tragedy and heartbreak will find love and acceptance with each other and a future that is beautifully bright.

Sean Highwater is an intelligent man. He is one of Last Stand’s detectives and a man who thrives on solving puzzles whether they be for policework, fun or just life in general. Sean has always had a thoughtful way of thinking and not a big fan of social situations. Childhood bullies have made him wary and cautious. Because of this, Sean has led a rather lonely life. With the exception of his family, the rare individuals that truly understand him, Sean is decidedly content. As for a significant other? For the last decade there has only been one woman to hold his attention. Elena de la Cova. To Sean she is Last Stand royalty. A beautiful, elegant woman who carries herself with a regal air. Elena is not pretentious or snobbish. She is a widow with a ten-year-old son.

Over the course of the book, Sean and Elena will find themselves in each other’s company more often then not. Sean will eventually learn that Elena, while elegant, beautiful and what he describes as regal, is most definitely attainable for a quiet introvert such as himself.

I won’t go into details but I will say I enjoyed Sean and Elena’s story very much and named it as one of my favorite holiday reads. I definitely recommend this book, which while part of a series, can be read as a standalone. In fact, I am looking forward to reading about the other Highwater siblings.

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

New Release with 📝Review: Iced (Boston Terriers Book Two) by Jacob Chance is Available Now!

Title: ICED
Series: Boston Terriers Hockey
Author: Jacob Chance
Genre: Sports Romance
Release Date: November 1, 2019
 

 

 

 

Oliver Ice, one of Boston University’s notorious hockey players, has been on my radar since I slammed into his rock-hard body during my first week of college, three years ago. He helped me to my feet, muttered an apology, and ran off after his girlfriend, dashing my hopes of a happily ever after.
 
Now, he’s the bartender where I work, and this time, very much single. Night after night I watch the tall, broad, and sexy right winger mixing drinks and being Mr. Personality, while I remind myself how horribly my last relationship ended.
 
But when Oliver overhears a private conversation, he offers to be the one thing I need more than anything– my pretend boyfriend at a dreaded family reunion.
 
One weekend was all it was meant to be.
 
How do I protect my fragile heart when the lines between fantasy and reality blur with our first kiss?

My Review of Iced:  5 Stars!
One of the aspects I enjoy about the Boston Terriers series’ (both football and hockey) is getting more insight on the secondary characters; those who have already had their respective books, and this that are hopefully coming soon. This was how I met Oliver; he was introduced in a previous book. From the moment I met him, I wanted his story. He seemed like a genuine, loyal character and I needed to learn more about this interesting man. I won’t go into any specific details but I will tell you that Oliver is recovering from a breakup. One he didn’t see coming, so of course he was blindsided. I was hurting for him, but I knew he was better off. Otherwise, he wouldn’t have given a second thought to Ava.

Ava has also gone through a breakup. And while I thought Oliver’s ex was a rotten piece of you-know-what, Ava’s ex was a jerk in the first degree. So, while Ava and Oliver navigate a platonic relationship, their true feelings won’t stay hidden for too long. This book is definitely a slow burn. I appreciated the slower relationship development between Ava and Oliver that much more because of the pace of their growing relationship. Their connection was believable.

I definitely recommend this book. And while Iced can be read as a standalone, I promise you’ll enjoy reading it even more if you read the other Boston Terriers books. They are all standalone sports romance with a side of comedy and filled with lovable characters. I can’t wait for the next book n this series!

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