Title: RISK

Series: Brothers on Ink and Steel
Author: Allie Juliette Mousseau
Genre: Enemies to Lovers/2nd Chance Romance
Release Date: June 23, 2020
Cover Design: Allusion Graphics
USA Today Bestselling Author Allie Juliette Mousseau delivers a sexy, quick-witted and sassy enemies-to-lovers second-chance romance featuring one smoldering alpha attorney; a feisty, determined social worker; and three young orphans in trouble… 

Saint Sophia the Mother of Orphans, help us!

 

Connor Callahan, once a North House teen who shed his own blood to become a Brother of Ink and Steel, is now a powerful attorney and the Twin Cities’ most eligible bachelor. He challenges stereotypes and melts panties with his rugged good-looks, colorful tattoos, and brazen piercings. When he’s handed the case of a lifetime with the promise of partnership in the firm he’s dedicated his career to, he knows his destiny is close.
Then he gets a glimpse of the familiar Saint Sophia pendant his opposing council wears, and he finds himself wondering… could it really be her, the girl he met as a teenager? He never thought he’d see the blond whirlwind again after she blew in and out of his life, but she was wholly unforgettable. Like a tattoo over his heart. If only he could get close enough to be sure it’s really her… but she’s never going to let that happen.
Elle Hayes despises the formidable Mr. Callahan and everything he stands for. Though he puts on an immensely charming act—and is hotter than the desert sun—she knows he’s a fake. There’s no way she’s going to let Callahan interfere with her objective: finding a home for the vulnerable orphans his client has torn apart.
Then an unexpected set-up has Connor and Elle playing house together for a week…
As the tension—and heat—revs up between them, they discover that they each have a whole lot more to lose than just a court case. Their hearts are on the line—and so much more.
But to experience the greatest things in life, we have to take the greatest risks.
RISK Brother of Ink and Steel (Book 4) is a standalone novel. There’s no need to read the earlier titles beforehand, but this book features charming cameos by title characters from the Brothers of Ink and Steel and True North Series. You’ll want to go back and read them all.

 

I’ve been watching my favorite distraction ever since I first discovered him working with the kids in the ring—teaching them how to box and better their mixed martial arts abilities—shortly after I started working at The Core. He’s here with them three days a week like clockwork. I’ve also seen him sparring with some of the other guys who seem to be regulars here too. You can tell they’re all friends by the way they hang out, laugh and mess with each other. They’re all gorgeous, but I’m drawn to my mystery… errr… distraction.His body is cut and sculpted with lean long muscles, while every inch of his exposed skin is etched with ink that ripples and moves with him like he’s an exotic tiger. His movements make the tattoo artist’s canvas come alive. The tats adorn every line and ridge, precisely cut against the muscle.
I want to get closer! I want to touch them! I want to touch him.My favorite tattoo is the black scrawling letters over his left ribcage that read, “I AM MY BROTHERS’ KEEPER.” What a beautiful mantra to live by.
I wonder if it’s his religion.Good God, he’s the definition of sex appeal. Any kind of day I’m having, everything starts looking up when I get a chance to watch him move.I’ve actually never seen his face. His nose and cheekbones are always hidden behind a padded, grilled face guard. So I’ve just had to imagine the face that goes with that amazing body.
He looks like an experienced fighter. His skin is stretched drum tight over taut muscles. Every inch of him is iron.
Christ, he’s hard all over.I shake my head to dissipate the musing of how hard that body could get under his shorts.
Back to G-rated fantasies! There are kids around, I scold myself. At least… PG-13.He shows the kid how to move, what muscles to put behind the punch. His side ripples in waves as he arches and stretches his ribs and shoulders, twisting to the side.
My eyes trail his movements, mesmerized.
It’s been so long since I’ve felt desire.
I’ve wanted to get close enough to see into his eyes, but I haven’t had the guts. He’d totally know I was checking him out if I did. So, I keep my distance.The thin boy sends a right hook against the man’s face—the puffy glove connecting to his equally padded face mask. I can’t help but laugh when he pretends the hit is hard enough to knock him off balance, as he stumbles over his feet dramatically, then acts as if he’s shaking it off.
The young boy jumps up and down and raises his arms in triumph.
This guy could be the man of my dreams.

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. 🙂

“Silver” Series: Love After 40 Series Book 1, by Author AE Gamrat, Genre: Second Chance/Contemporary/Over 40 Romance, is Available NOW! #ReleaseBlitz #NewRelease

Title: Silver
Series: Love After 40 Series Book 1
Author: AE Gamrat
Genre: Second Chance/Contemporary/Over 40 Romance
Release Date: April 25, 2020
We barely knew each other back then. What kind of chance do we have now?
 
Twenty 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?


Growing up writing was second nature that soon become a distant memory. Turning 30 (not saying when) that memory was going to be brought back to life. Lover of all books I try to grab my audience in and never let go. Hoping to get all these thoughts and ideas down for everyone to enjoy, even if it’s a moment or a life time. 

 

 
This is the new chapter of my life story. Hope everyone enjoys!

Synopsis:

Is she restoring “this old house” or reimagining her future with the man she left behind?

Man down.
When “Diamond” Jim McCall gambles on a fixer-upper for sentimental reasons, his house of cards implodes – along with his health. Ruby’s ready for a job change but agreeing to become her first crush’s apprentice might be her biggest mistake. She doesn’t doubt they can “flip” the derelict ranch house and save Summit Construction, but at what cost to her heart? After all, Boone Fielding became the son her father never had when she left for college.

Man up.
Helping Ruby McCall and her sisters flip Diamond Jim’s “money pit” makes sense financially, but he can’t partner with someone he doesn’t trust – and Boone hasn’t forgotten his last close encounter with Ruby. But every day on the job reminds him of why he fell in love with her in the first place.

How is he ever going to let her go when the job is done?

Montana Blueprint for Love (Property Sisters Book 1)Montana Blueprint for Love by Debra Salonen

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

The first book in a new series and I think it’s off to a good start. Montana Blueprint for Love introduces a lot of characters. And of course, we get a cameo here and there with some of our favorite Marietta citizens from past stories.

An aspect I would have appreciated additionally in this book was to have more interaction and dialogue with Ruby and Boone and a bit less with everyone else. Of course, I understand that first books are the ones that give us glimpses into the next books but I felt this book could have had a bit less of that. I’m being selfish I guess, because I wanted more of the H/h.

I loved watching Ruby and Boone try to navigate a relationship that wasn’t romantic despite their buried feelings for each other. They were careful and hesitant around each other. And at the same time, looked forward to when they worked together every day. Ruby’s father made some very poor choices and now Ruby, along with her sisters and Boone are having to literally and figuratively “fix” the mess he made.

The premise of the book was interesting. The way the H/h and Jim evolved as characters was engaging and believable. My favorite character in this book was Boone. He was kind, considerate, selfless and a gentleman. Without giving anything away, I will tell you that Boone had every reason to be angry and if he decided to walk away from Ruby and her family, I couldn’t blame him nor would I have thought less of him.

The chemistry between Ruby and Boone was a slow burn and didn’t ‘set fire’ until much later in the book. I actually enjoyed the slow pace of their relationship growing into something more. The pace made this story believable.

I have read this author several times before and always enjoyed her books. Ruby has two sisters who will have their stories told in the next books in which we were given glimpses into. That said, I know we will be seeing a lot more of Ruby and Boone and I am going to be looking out for those books which I know we won’t have to wait too long for. One of my favorite aspects about Tule Publishing is their ability to publish the next books in a series in a timeframe that won’t have you having to reread previous books to catch up. Most of my favorite series are published by Tule.

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

Synopsis:

The spark is still there… and brighter than ever

Cowgirl Sage Highwater had some tough times growing up: she was the only girl in a family of five, and the youngest to boot. She lost her amazing father and her closest sibling on the same day. And two years later, the boy she loved down to her soul left her behind without a word.

Growing up, Scott Parrish had been the talk of Last Stand, Texas, and never in a good way. At odds with his family, he’d constantly courted trouble. No one seemed to care or understand him, except Sage. At seventeen he’d been given a chance to make something of his life. He’d seized it, but at the expense of leaving the girl he loved. Ten years later he’s back, but not to stay.

Is a few days enough for even a determined cowgirl to convince the bad boy-turned-hero to finally give their love a chance in the hometown he’s hated for years?

Lone Star Reunion (Texas Justice, #4)Lone Star Reunion by Justine Davis

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Lone Star Reunion is book four in the Texas Justice series from author Justine Davis. I’ve had the pleasure of reading books #3 & #4. Since book #5 is one I am highly anticipating, I want to read the books I missed beforehand as soon as possible. I love nothing better than a family series that I can go back on and binge read. I’m sure this will be one of them. Last Stand Texas stars in quite a few series from Tule Publishing; one of my top five favorite publishers. In addition, this author, Justine Davis, is not a new author to me. I have read and enjoyed several of her works. If you love small-town feel romance with a bit of angst and some suspense thrown in and a satisfying happily-ever-after, I recommend this book as well as this series.

Sage is the youngest in a family of five and the fourth Highwater to find true love. Her story is emotional. Scott, Sage’s hero has his own emotional demons. I won’t get into details about his past, however I will tell you that I have never read a scenario such as his. At first, Scott’s situation didn’t feel believable and definitely not relatable. I couldn’t understand how any parents could behave so horribly toward their own children. But as I read on, I became engaged in Sage and Scott’s story, even wondering if there would be a happy ending for them. There was, and as a result I was genuinely pleased with how things turned out in the end. Very pleased, in fact.

So, if you’ve read this series or only one or two books such as I have, then you know the remaining sibling has gone missing. Kane left Last Stand and hasn’t returned for over a decade. The rest of the Highwater siblings haven’t given up looking for him. And in each book, they become closer to finding their missing brother. I personally cannot wait for Kane’s story. I suspect that book will be the most heartbreaking. But that’s ok, because with that heartbreak, Justine Davis will no doubt give us a beautiful ending.

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

Anger. Bitterness. Two words that should never destroy a marriage. Especially when love is forever present, strong and passionate. Yet, Dr. Alyssa Combs did exactly that. She ended her marriage to Callum Cooper out of spite, out of hurt.
Nearly two years later and Alyssa is in the exact same place. She still desperately wants Callum back. Except now, she has the job she thought he denied her.
 
Callum Cooper fought desperately to save his marriage, for his wife. It was all for nothing, however. Alyssa left him anyway and blamed him for the job she lost. Now, injured and under her care and dependent on her hospitality, Callum will do anything to strengthen his resolve and force himself, his heart to get over her. He is determined that the time spent with Alyssa will make him immune to her charms… and her body.
 
Can they overcome their anger, their hurt and get the fresh start that they deserve?
 
 
 
 
 
He unlocked the front door and keyed in the security code. She stepped in and he closed the door, locking it and setting the night time alarm. They were in for the night, and they would not be disturbed.
He dragged his gaze up her body. The heels of those skin colored sandals accentuated her calves perfectly. The hem of her dress ended midway up her thigh, leaving just enough to the imagination. He didn’t need to use his imagination, he knew every glorious inch of her body. The soft fabric skimmed over her hips and dipped in slightly at the waist before framing her breasts. Her bare skin at the top almost glowed and he couldn’t wait to lay his lips on that sensitive spot between her shoulder and her neck. His gaze reached her eyes. Heat flared in them.  He lead her to sit on the couch. “Wait here.”
He walked to the guest bedroom and dug in the overnight bag Adam had packed for him. Right at the bottom he found what he was looking for. He walked back to the living room, placing the box of condoms on the table in front of her. She looked up at him, cocking her brow at him. “Is this show and tell?”
“Now’s not the time, Lys.” He barely recognized the raw-edged voice leaving his mouth. He pulled her off the couch. “We can either turn in for the night. Or you could take that dress off. Either way, we can discuss the things you’re keeping from me in the morning.”
She stepped up to him and turned, her breathing laboured. “I’m going to need you to help me unzip this dress.”
