Going deep: In football it means running down the field for a long pass. You’re serious. Committed. Unstoppable. As a wide receiver, it’s a term I’m all too familiar with. It’s who I am, at least when it comes to my career.

For the past decade, football has been the only thing I’ve allowed myself to commit to. That is until a beautiful, blue-eyed temptress steps into my limo to escort me to a charity function.

She’s strong, independent, and quick witted. Everything I want in a woman. There’s just one problem. She’s not mine for the taking. But that’s not going to stop me from winning her heart.

I’m in deep with this woman. I’m running down the field with my arms and heart open, ready for the catch. Now all I need is for her to throw the ball.

📝My Review📝:

Going Deep (Imperfect Love #2)Going Deep by Nikki Ash

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

5 Stars!
Nikki Ash is amazing! She has quickly found a permanent place on my top ten favorite author’s list. I have never came away from one her her books disappointed. If anything, after reading her books, I want more.

So……while I absolutely loved this book, the H/h were not easy to like in the beginning chapters. Both of them treated the other horribly. Mean things were often said and many assumptions were made. Killian and Giselle are the epitome of the love/hate relationship only they didn’t know it. There is a slow development of their relationship as it grows from animosity, to tolerance, to friends to more. Of course the more is my favorite.

Killian is a pro football player and Giselle is interning at a prestigious interior design firm. While Killian is in a good place, he is not looking for a relationship. He has a story that will break your heart and give you that justification of why he acts the way her does. Killian is loyal and generous. He is sexy and and every woman’s dream man. I actually liked him better than Nick from the previous book, The Pick Up. And that says a lot because Nick is an amazing character.

Killian will become the hero that Giselle claims she doesn’t need or want. Once she lets Killian inside her heart, Giselle can finally find peace with her life and find love. Without going into details, Giselle has been going through a very difficult time in her life. She has had to make some decisions that I personally did not like. Thought I understood, and did not judge her because of it. Thankfully Killian didn’t either.

This book was really amazing and I don’t want to say too much more about it. You should enjoy it on you own. I will say that if you haven’t read this author yet, You are truly missing out on some very talented writing.

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

I didn’t think I was missing anything. I had my son, a great career, and a home that I’d made for both of us. One puck over the glass at a hockey game made me realize I wanted more. The larger-than-life hockey player inserted himself into our world and I never wanted to let him go.

The thing is, I don’t know if I’m strong enough to keep him.

My home was on the ice, with a stick in my hand and a puck on my tape. It took one little boy with a toothless smile and his spitfire mother to change all that. I wanted them to be my home and I was willing to take all the penalties necessary to make it happen.

Now I just have to convince her that we can handle it all together.

Melding three lives into one isn’t as easy as it seems, especially with the traveling, the media, and the insecurities. Savannah and Porter have to decide whether to use the breakaway to head to the goal or take a seat on the bench.

After all, 425 Madison is the perfect place to fall in love!

Title: Dark Days: Semester 2

Author: Liz Meldon

Genre: Enemies-to-Lovers Paranormal Romance

Release Day: February 8, 2019

dd cover 2


A vampire desperate for a brighter future. A wolf shifter eager to forget the past.

A killer closing in.

Still reeling from the events of December 31st, wolf shifter Emma Kingsley stumbles into the new year knowing that nothing will ever be the same. Her sanctuary—her territory—is falling to pieces around her. Danger in the forest. Danger in the village. Danger at her door.

This time of year, wolf’s in season.

The cruel promises of two rogue vampires cling to her like a second skin, but so does the possibility for something more with the vampire who saved her life. Despite her growing feelings, she knows in her heart that Calder is a part of this madness.

And when the truth comes to light, will she ever be able to trust him again?

Forced to unite for the sake of their beloved boarding school, two former enemies are torn between doing what is necessary…

And following their hearts.

The fresh start that vampire Calder so desperately craved is shot straight to Hell when the past comes back to bite him. Had circumstances been different, he would have fallen back on old habits—and run.

But now that Emma is involved, he knows the game has changed. A price must be paid, and if it keeps her alive, Calder Holloway will pay it a thousand times over.

Even if that means forgetting his feelings for the beautiful shifter. Every. Last. One.

Because those messy, messy feelings are what got him into trouble in the first place.

In the dark days of winter, an ancient evil emerges from the shadows. Blood will be spilled. Lines will be drawn. Lives will be lost.

Only one thing is certain: no one is safe.

Not even creatures of the night.

Dark Days is a standalone enemies-to-lovers paranormal romance duet. While Book 1 has a cliffhanger, all will be resolved with a supernatural happily-ever-after in Book 2.

Dark Days Semester 1 Cover


A vampire desperate to escape his past. A wolf shifter determined to protect her future.

A killer on the loose.

One year ago, wolf shifter Emma accepted her dream job teaching PE at a Norwegian international school, finally freeing herself from her mother’s incessant matchmaking. As the alpha’s heir, walking away from her pack, from her obligations—potentially even her fated mate—weighed heavy on her heart. But deep down, she knew it was the right decision.

Unfortunately, her sacrifice may have been for nothing—because the new history teacher has fangs.

With a reputation for kidnapping and selling shifters to research labs, a vampire is the last thing Emma needs in her life, but she refuses to be intimidated. This is her territory and she’s not going anywhere, so that grumpy, gorgeous vampire can suck it.

Forced together at a prestigious boarding school, two supernatural enemies are torn between ripping each other’s clothes off…

And ripping each other apart.

Eager for a fresh start, vampire Calder accepts an invitation to teach history at a private school above the Arctic Circle. Its remote location appeals to his sensibilities, and years of practice have taught him how to charm his human colleagues, but a certain gym teacher is seriously trying his last nerve.

All Calder wants to do is teach, so if the strikingly beautiful shifter refuses to see him as anything but the big bad vampire, perhaps he ought to lean into the part and really give her a show.

As summer turns to winter, humans disappear from nearby villages, gone without a trace and presumed missing—or worse.

Only one thing is certain: there are dark days ahead.

Even for creatures of the night.

Dark Days is a standalone enemies-to-lovers paranormal romance duet. While Book 1 has a cliffhanger, all will be resolved with a supernatural happily-ever-after in Book 2.

DD 1 Teaser 1


My least favorite staff member had been assigned as a floater, helping wherever he could. Calder had shown up this afternoon the most dressed-down I had ever seen him, sporting a pair of dark jeans and a plain white T-shirt, just fitted enough to contour the muscular outline of his figure. I blamed Casual Friday, the last day of our homecoming spirit week, which had also included such hits as Crazy Hair Day, Crazy Hat Day—the works.

Predictably, there had been a squabble over where the vampire would be placed, groups of teenage girls bickering with one another until Calder graciously offered to share his time between everyone. I’d just rolled my eyes and done my best to ignore him, but he was kind of difficult to ignore with all that muscle normally hidden beneath a three-piece tweed suit on display.

I couldn’t blame the girls for fighting over him, either. The guy was gorgeous. They just didn’t know he was a vampiric ass beneath that shiny, hunky veneer.

After giving my precious gymnasium a onceover, the transformation for the upcoming dance making my inner wolf grumble, I folded the sheet of paper in half again and made my way to the far back corner, toward the door that would open to a hallway, my hallway, at the end of which sat my office. Hopefully the internet would have a suggestion or two for “cooler”, more “authentic”, on-theme drink names to appease the senior class president.

Never mind that she and the student council had come up with these ones in the first place.

One of the major items out of place during the prep stages were the chairs. Stacked some fifteen high, they sat bunched together in the back corner, and a crew of seniors had been moving them into the gym all afternoon, lugging the large black and gold chairs up from the storage room one or two at a time. As I neared the towers, my first thought was that they were stacked too high—that it wasn’t safe.

A suspicion proven correct mere moments later when someone on the other side of the chair wall tripped, their shoes squeaking out a familiar cry, followed by the clunk of chairs colliding with chairs. The row to my immediate left teetered, stacked too precariously tall, and I staggered back, tensed, waiting to catch the damn things, then pretend it had hurt me to do so.

Only the stack never fell.

Because some gorgeous vampire dick stopped it.

Calder appeared out of nowhere, his back to the stack, catching and righting it again in the span of about five seconds. It was a risk, using his speed around all these humans, but the music faintly whumping from the AV club’s speakers carried on, as did the chatter, the clatter of furniture, like nothing had ever happened.

“You okay?” I called, Calder and I no more than a foot apart, my heart in my throat as he stared me down, for once neither smarmy nor smirking.

“Yeah, I’m good,” the culprit on the other side called back, and I caught his shadow moving beneath the chair legs, marching back and forth, walking it off. “Tripped over my own feet.”

“These are stacked too high,” I said, still holding Calder’s gaze, unable to tear myself away, my stomach looping. “Cut them down by half so they don’t fall on someone.”

“Yes, Miss Kingsley.”

Calder smelled earthy today. Sandalwood. Oakmoss. Musk. My cheeks peppered with heat the longer I breathed him in, and when he eased away from the tower of chairs, I took a sizeable step back, crinkling the paper in my hand.

“I could have caught that,” I muttered, then ducked my head down and made a beeline for the nearby door. The metal handle squeaked when I gripped it, but the brightly lit corridor on the other side was mercifully silent. As soon as the door closed, the chaos outside disappeared. His scent vanished. Smoothing a hand over my loose waves, I dragged in a deep breath, then exhaled it slowly, making my way by the trio of closed, locked grey doors, beyond which was all my equipment. Balls. Netting. Rackets. The final door, way at the end of the hall, offered me guaranteed sanctuary, a private place to quiet my hammering heart.

The handle squeaked again, and I whirled around at the sound. Calder stalked in, letting the door slam shut behind him, and I turned away, unable to withstand that dark, brooding look for a second longer than necessary. If he wanted a proper thank-you for doing something I honestly could have done myself, he’d be waiting a long time.

I hadn’t made it more than three steps closer to my office before his hand snapped around my elbow, and my inner wolf snarled when he yanked me back and shoved me against the wall. Hackles up, my lips peeled back as the crumpled paper fluttered to the ground, forgotten at our feet. Calder caged me in with a hand on either side of my shoulders, his face ducking down to meet my eyeline…

Title: One Week Hating You
Author: Roya Carmen
Genre: 2nd Chance Love/Hate Story
Release Date: October 25, 2018
Cover Design: Calico Images

Maeve is over the moon: life is good and she’s about to get married to Peter. But when she loses her job and gets jilted at the altar, her world crumbles and she runs into her momma’s arms.
She’s back in her small hometown for a week, and she has a plan – make Peter insanely jealous and win him back. Enter Blake Taylor, the boy who broke her heart. She’d rather avoid him at all costs, but with his ‘bad boy’ good looks and their shared history, Blake is the perfect man for the job, as long as she can stand him long enough – it’s just one week, after all.
She’ll show Peter that she’s not the sweet wallflower he thinks she is, and he’ll come running back soon enough.
But when he does, will she still want him?
A second chance love hate story.

As soon as he closes the door behind us, he grabs my wrist and pulls me in to him.

The sudden tug makes me jerk. “You’re hurting me.”

His eyes are darker than I’ve ever seen them, as dark as coal. “No way in hell I’m letting you do this, Maeve. I’m not going to let you ruin our last night together. You’re mine tonight.”

He presses a hand gently on my cheek. “I’m sorry. I shouldn’t have said all that.”

The anger that had overwhelmed me just a second ago, instantly fades. All that remains is longing and desire. He’s right – I can’t ruin our last night together.

He draws my mouth to his. “I’m going to miss you,” he whispers.

“Me too,” I tell him, and get lost in his kiss. It’s as sweet and sexy as the kisses we shared years ago, but as he presses me against the door, it grows in intensity, and the boy’s kiss I remember so well morphs into the man’s kiss, the kind of kiss that makes you melt, and wet with want.

I get lost in his kiss, never wanting it to end. My fingers dig into his hair wildly as I wrap my leg tightly around his waist. I can’t get enough of him.

He tears himself away, and my heart jerks. He’s teasing again, or playing games. “What?”

He smiles, an impish grin. “No more kissing.”

“What?!” I say, incredulous. There’s no way we’re not kissing all night. This is what tonight’s all about.

He takes my hand and leads me to the chairs by the window. “Not another kiss until I get you completely naked.”

I smile. “How about you?”

He grins widely. “You be patient, Freckles.”

He slides a long finger along the curve of my dress. “I love this, but it has to go.” He spins me around, and presses his hot mouth on the nape of my neck. My whole core responds to him, so easily. He slides the zipper down slowly. “You’re too good for me,” he says quietly.

I want to protest and tell him that no, I’m not too good for him, but I get completely lost in the feel of his hand sliding down my back.

“You should go back to him,” he goes on. “He can give you the life you want, the life you deserve.” He slides the sleeveless dress over my shoulders and lets it drop to the floor. He bites my shoulder gently and I close my eyes. “I’ll always want you, Maeve. I’ll always remember this… the way your skin tastes and feels under my touch.”

I reach for him and fiddle with the buttons on his shirt but I can’t quite get at them – I’m a mess. He’s turned me into rubber. His hands slide over the curve of my waist, draw circles around my navel, and finally settle on the band of my lace panties. “I know you’ll always remember this too. When you’re fucking him, you’ll be thinking about me.”

He’s right, and he knows it.

“Are you looking for the cheerleading tryouts, sweetheart?”

Zeke Kingston is the arrogant, tattooed, and sinful coach of Boston University’s women’s football team. And I’m their new quarterback.

From the moment the dark and broody hunk mistook me for a cheerleader we’ve clashed. His smirking lips make my blood boil and his god-like muscles turn my knees weak.

Everything about us is off limits, but lines are blurring and temptations have become too hard to resist.

Being together breaks all the rules, but what happens when the rules no longer matter?

This is a standalone with crossover characters from PENALTY and DRIVE.



COACH (Boston Terriers #3)COACH by Jacob Chance

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

5 Stars….

I knew I was going to love this book! But I didn’t just love it, I LOVED IT!!!! Coach is book three in the Boston Terriers series. Not only is an amazing addition to this series, it is my favorite so far. And that says a lot because I said the same after reading each book, lol.

There are many great aspects of this book. For me, there was an incredible balance of humor and angst. Let’s not forget the crazy amount of tension between Zeke and Amelia. Their attraction was not only palpable; it was believable despite the love/hate they had going on. I am so thankful that this author writes both H/h perspectives. That aspect ALWAYS is an added bonus for me. Not only do I find this quality preferable, I have been known to pass on books with only a single POV. For me, having a first row seat to a characters intimate thoughts makes for a better read.

As you can infer from the blurb, both Zeke and Amelia get off to a angsty start. However it was pure entertainment to watch their relationship change and grow into something so passionate and beautiful. If you’ve read the previous books, you will also love revisiting with old friends. To tell you the truth, after finishing Coach, I am looking forward to rereading the others. So I’ll just say it…..this is not only a recommendation, this is a MUST READ! If you love a sexy, alpha, protective hero and an independent, sassy heroine who is not afraid to speak her mind, you’ll love Coach.

I’ll add that I really hope this author plans to give us Trevor and Owen’s books soon. PLEASE!

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

I’m good at deceiving people. Too good.
I let people think I’m a bastard.
Then Willow walks into my life, and no matter how hard I try to scare her off, she keeps coming back.
But, everyone has their limit, and I’m afraid Willow has reached hers.
Why is it when you think you don’t want someone they become the most important person in your life…. but am I too late to show her how much I love her?


I tried so hard to fight for us. But some things can’t be saved.
They say if you really love someone you have to set them free. If the person comes back, they’re meant to be yours.
The only problem with that theory is even though he came back, he always left again.
How much heartache can one heart take?
How much rejection can one person take?
The man I love more than life itself has broken me.

Marcus Reed & Willow Brooks ~ Ruthless is Book 4 in the Enemies to Lovers series.

This is book #4 in the Enemies To Lovers Series. Each book in the series is about a different couple. To get the full experience of their friendship I’d recommend that you start with Heartless.

 Ruthless (Enemies to Lovers, #4)Ruthless by Michelle Horst

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

4 Stars…..

Ruthless is book four in the Enemies To Lovers series by author Michelle Horst (a.k.a Michelle Heard). Before I read the first book, I’d seen it advertised all over social media. In fact, I also promoted it on my blog. I admit I was intrigued after reading the blurb. However, I had so much already on my overflowing proverbial plate that I had to pass at the time. Though I did add it to my TBR.

After a few months, I finally got the opportunity to read it. I loved it. I loved the characters. All of them. And knowing they would all eventually star in their own stories was exciting to say the least. After catching up with the series, I was anxiously awaiting for Marcus’s book. While the secondary characters had something in their past to define them (usually sad), I knew Marcus’s story would crush me. His past was so incredibly heartbreaking and traumatic. No eight year old should EVER suffer through what Marcus had. Since that defining incident, Marcus has lived his life letting very few get close. There was definitely no room for a relationship. But when he meets Willow, everything changes. Not immediately, albeit slowly.

Willow was one heck of a heroine. From the moment she met the cocky, arrogant Marcus, she was easily able to see behind his false persona and protective walls. Willow was a strong, caring, loving and patient heroine. She was the best possible match for Marcus. Unfortunately, these two don’t have an easy time at making things work. Mostly due to Marcus. I was so happy to have both Marcus and Willow’s perspectives. It helped immensely with understanding what went on inside their heads.

I enjoyed this latest book in the series. I absolutely love the dynamic between all the characters. There is one more couple to have their story told. I am looking forward to reading about Evie and Rhett.

Find series on Goodreads:


Take one dose of a sexy physician, mix with an angsty pharmacist, and insert undeniable chemistry.

After one wild night in Vegas (and too much tequila), Everleigh finds herself in bed with a man she can’t stand and a ring on her finger. It doesn’t help that the man in question knows all the ways to push her buttons, even with his lickable abs and chiseled chest. The life she’s built, with her secrets locked up tight, is threatened when he decides he wants more than her in his bed – he wants her heart.

Brooks had wanted the hot pharmacist from the first moment he saw her. Except she shoots him down at every advance, so he hands it over to fate. But fate doesn’t anticipate someone from Everleigh’s past intent on keeping her for himself.

4.5 Stars…..

Gosh I love this series! If you’ve read any of my reviews from the previous books in the series you know I am repeating myself when I say that. But it’s the truth. I’m going to hate when this series comes to an end. Thankfully there are two more brothers waiting to have their stories told.

Brooks and Everleigh……
So these two have volatile chemistry. They love to hate each other. But fortunately by the end of this book, love wins out. But it is a hard won battle. When Everleigh and Brooks first meet in book one of the series, their attraction is instant. While Brooks wants Everleigh with everything he has, she will fight the attraction to the bitter end. And she literally does just that. So, yeah, I will admit here that Everleigh was difficult to like at first. Because I knew there was more to her closed off personality, I instantly gave her the benefit of the doubt. I wanted to see how things would unfold for her. In addition, I desperately wanted to learn her secrets. While Brooks was pretty much an open book, Everleigh was as stubborn as ever.

So from the blurb you know they are married. But you should know they aren’t really together. It takes a heck of a lot of time and much patience on Brooks part to get to their happily-ever-after. I promise you will get frustrated at times and probably even a bit angry with how slowly their relationship develops. But Everleigh has good reason for the fortress around her heart. My heart broke for her when everything is revealed. From this point I’ll say no more other than you are in for a ride of emotional proportions.

Oh, and the ending was so sweet. I really, really love Brooks. I recommend you check out this series; you won’t be disappointed.

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